WOW!!!!! Really!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes friends it is true...Now let me introduce you how it started and the websites links:

Who Took Initiative?

Open Source Ware

Get Best Education free of cost from anywhere in the world

No doubt free online education programs were commenced by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Yes friends it was MIT whose teachers started thinking about launching free education course on the internet in the world. Some of their experts suggested that the simple way is to make available entire course material online on the internet so that a great strength of students can avail free education around the world. On 4th April in 2001 MIT announced that their all courses would be available on the website free of cost.

 In 2002 pilot version of the website was launched. Initially it was consisted on 500 courses. In 2007 MIT offered 1800 courses in 33 fields. It means they offered their whole curriculum online for students that too free of cost. Time to time MIT improved course outlines. In 2012 they had introduced 2150 courses online and numbers of visitors were 125 million. MIT is aiming to deliver their free courses up to 1 billion students.

So friends you can also avail these online free of cost courses. So what are you waiting for?  Head over to the website and register yourself strait away!!!!! Website:

EDX (Another step)

Get Best Education free of cost from anywhere in the world

Management of Harvard University also thought to participate in this virtue. Hence they also decided to provide free online education in collaboration with MIT. Online education was only limited to course material on internet before EDX, but in 2012 MIT and Harvard universities made a strategy to launch online classes for the course jointly.  Thus website came into being.

Here students can enroll free of cost where they are informed about new courses schedules time to time and students can choose the course programs according to their needs and time availability. Interestingly enough here you will find such courses on which you will be issued certifications after the completion as well.

Last but not least, another step in this development took Stanford University. At this time Dafnay Coler and Andrew N.G gathered the best universities of America and Europe and made a plan to furnish online free education classes. In these programs 62 universities of 16 countries participated in this activity from America and Europe.  Students were offered 300 courses on the website.

Friends you can also register here and get any course free of cost and at the end of the course, you will be issued certificate as well. So far one million and seventy hundred thousand (17,000,000) students have registered in different 440 courses from 170 countries. I believe friends this will also be useful for you.

Udacity (Another platform of free online education)

Get Best Education free of cost from anywhere in the world

Two professors of Stanford University started this platform. It means Udacity is another free online education platform from Stanford University. The most advanced technology course “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI)” was launched free of cost firstly. In a short span of time 160,000 students from 190 countries enrolled for this course. Thus a new free online education platform Udacity came into being. Udacity is also a joined work of different Europe and American universities. The management is always embarking their course outline time to time that too free of cost.

British is also in this race

Get Best Education free of cost from anywhere in the world

If American universities are offering free education then why British universities remain deprived from this welfare. Keeping this vision British organized a “Russellgroup” with the cooperation and collaboration of different universities of British. Russellgroup is enthusiastic to prepare 30 graduate students in Science, Technology and Engineering fields. You will find some paid courses on the website. If you like, you can continue your study here.

Google introduced smart contact lens

Google introduced smart contact lens

International Diabetes Federation said. “We think the world is losing the battle against diabetes disease.” But I suppose Google is still zealous to conquer the end of diabetes that’s why it introduced speculative technology in contact lens called “Smart Contact Lens”

The aim of smart contact lens is to measure the glucose level of Diabetes patient. Typically diabetes patient pricks his finger to test his glucose level that’s the manual sort of test. Google embedded a tiny wireless chip and hair-thin antennae between two layers of lens. This chip is 50 times thinner than a human hair. There is a glucose sensor with chip embedded in the smart contact lens.

The sensor has enough potential to record the reading of glucose level after each second. In order to make it more outstanding, Google is striving to integrate LED light that will  light up when the certain level of glucose approaches crossed threshold.

So far smart contact lens is still in the developing phase in GoogleX lab. Although Google has accomplished its clinical research studies but still Google thinks that it needs some experts and partner companies related to medical tech development. Talking to FDA (Food & Drug Administration) Google said, “It wants to work with some partners who are particularly developing medical equipment and gadget.”

Facial Recognition

Facial Recognition tech expected to be used in next iPhone version

Facial recognition technology is still controversial, but it has developed in recent some years. Now this technology can recognize face with high accuracy.  In the earlier year, Google banned on facial recognition technology in its Google glass wearable technology until some laws standards are not developed in this regard.

Lately Apple Company won patent of Facial recognition technology that’s why experts are expecting that probably Apple will use facial recognition technology in its next iPhone version. On the other hand Obama administration is also preparing laws for facial recognition. National Telecommunication and Information Administration will conduct first meeting in this regard in 2014 expectedly.

It is imperative to set some laws for facial recognition technology because this tech can intervene in private lives of people. For that very reason it is very necessary to review general aspects of legislation before launching this technology.

An important report about Pakistani Smartphone users

An important report about Pakistani Smartphone users

 According to a new survey from Google, there is a key change is Pakistani internet users. In 2014, a big chunk of Smartphones will exceed from Desktop computer internet users. At this moment, 91% Pakistani internet users access internet from their personal computers for that very reason internet is accessed from Desktop computers in a large mass in Pakistan. However, 45% of them also have Smartphones or tablets with their Desktop computers, 18% users only go for Smart devices.

Over all if I say that mobile devices for internet access are leading desktop computers would not be wrong. 86% Pakistani internet users access the internet on their Personal computers, 77% use access on Smartphone and 59% user access internet on tablets.

Due to Smartphone inclination and 3G technologies in Pakistan, the prices of Smartphones and tablets went low. It’s also expected that feature phones will also play their role to switch the Pakistani internet users to mobile devices. Load-shading is also improving the user of Smartphones and tablets in Pakistan. Tania Adros manager of Google Asia Pacific said, “According to us, 2014 year will replace the Desktop computer internet users with mobile internet users because users prefer Smartphones and tablets. All telecommunication companies must contemplate on changing behavior of users. That’s why it is very important for every company to know that how much they understand their users. ”

According to IDC firm, these stats were taken from research on 1000 Pakistani people. Pakistan Consumer Study Program was inaugurated last year on Pakistani users communication habits and very interesting stats were discovered from research. According to survey 70% people use internet daily while according to 60% users like to spend their personal time on internet.

In the last I would like to say that if Government contemplates on shortage of some facilities in Pakistan such as load-shedding, slow internet speed and low bandwidth, Pakistan can walk with other countries in digital life race.

Now Google+ users can send email at gmail directly

Yesterday, Google expanded a controversial feature which allows Google+ users to send emails directly to someone else's Gmail. This isn't exactly a new feature, as there has been the option to allow Google+ users to email you via your G+ profile, but the new addition is that you can find people you follow on G+ directly in Gmail, and the most controversial part of it all: it was turned on by default.

Earlier today, we described why you might be interested in disabling this feature. The main reason for disabling the feature would probably be that you don't use Google+, and if you're not a plusser, then by all means you should disable the feature. And, I would certainly understand if you want to dial it back, because we do feel that Google overstepped in setting the default to allow "Anyone on Google+" to contact you; it should have been limited to just your circles, or extended circles at most. However, it is easy enough to change that setting; and, I would like to point out a couple things about the new feature, just in case you're on the fence about it, because there is value to be had in it. 

First of all, the feature isn't as worrisome as you may think. Users may be able to email you, but they don't ever get to see your email address, and you are in control of what happens after that first message. If someone emails you once, and you don't respond or add that person to your G+ circles, they will not be allowed to message you again. This has been done to limit the amount of spam and trolling that can be perpetrated through the system. And, if you have Gmail's auto-tags enabled, messages from someone not in your circles will be bumped out of your Primary inbox and into your Social inbox, giving you an extra opportunity to ignore it if you want. 

The value

Second, there is real value in this feature, if you fit the use-case. These controls make this a very interesting feature which feels more like Google is making a move against LinkedIn rather than any other social service. Think of it this way: if you are searching for a new job, or trying to build up your brand, you may turn to LinkedIn to push out some unsolicited networking emails. However, with LinkedIn there are two downsides: first, anyone can send you a message as long as they pay for the privilege; and second, you are less likely to get a response through LinkedIn than if you were to track down that person's actual email address, meaning you could end up wasting your money. 

On the other side, if you want to use Google+, your message will go directly into the recipient's Gmail, which gives it a higher likelihood of being seen. It won't cost you anything either. So, if you are attempting to build a public profile on the web, or if you are interested in helping others do so, or if you are just interested in helping out in your area of expertise, there is a lot of value in Google's new feature. For example, I have had the feature turned on with my Google+ profile since it was first made available, and the only emails I have received from it have been from readers who either want to comment directly on a story, want to send a tip about a potential story, or ask me a question because they trust my opinion. 

Sure, there will be some trolls and spam (and frankly I wouldn't be surprised to see some after I post this), but the system is designed to mitigate those issues right from the start, and Google will undoubtedly add more anti-spam features as time goes by. But, spam comes with being more open; it's an unfortunate side-effect of something that does have value for some people. 

On being more open

I certainly can't and won't argue that it is valuable for everyone. If you want to protect your privacy, that is your right and your choice. However, for some people, there is great value in living in public. In my experience, the more open I am, the less I worry about protecting my privacy, because at some point I began equating the "need" for privacy with a fear of being rejected by society. I eventually decided that in the majority of cases, privacy was really the mistaken belief that what you do and who you are is somehow different and wrong compared to others. It is the insecurity that comes from comparing your "behind-the-scenes with everyone else's highlight reel." (-Steve Furtick)

The more open you become, the more you realize that we are all human, and we share a lot more in common than what can be seen as differences. For example, I don't feel the need to be private about any health issues, because I don't hold exclusive rights to eczema, nor am I the only one to have a family history of skin cancer. I am not the only person to have been a shy kid or a fat kid, nor am I the only one to have overcome those issues to find great relationships and better health. From my choice of profession, I clearly don't feel ashamed to be passionate and excited by technology, because I am obviously not the only one to have that viewpoint. 

Of course, as with all beliefs, the key is to not force your views on others. I realize that my views on privacy are not universal. I have kept certain pictures and social posts more private, because my wife doesn't hold my same views on being public. And, there are obviously more extreme cases where anonymity and privacy equate directly to safety for some; and, I could never suggest that those people would be better off leading public lives. But, I have also lived a long time on the Internet, and dealt with countless people who hold the view that the only way to get noticed is through negative attention (aka trolls). 


At the end of the day, it is a choice. I have chosen to be more open, and I have found value in that (and have written about that in the past), just as I have found value in Google+. If you don't see the value in openness, or the value in Google+, then obviously you should just follow the easy steps we laid out earlier to turn off the new Gmail feature. All I would say is: don't let your knee-jerk reaction dictate what you do. The initial reaction by most these days is to want to protect one's privacy. Given all of the trouble with the NSA, various leaks, and stolen data, there are good reasons why you might feel that way. However, as the incomparable Frank Sinatra once said, "Fear is the enemy of logic." So, it can't hurt to take a few moments and reflect on why you feel the way you do, question what is driving your decisions. Those few moments of introspection can help make better decisions, and help to avoid any potential "troll moments" that we all have when we get stuck in auto-pilot.

Normandy Nokia's expected Android-based future phone leaks yet again

In spite of there being reports that Nokia has given up on the Android-based Normandy, the device doesn't shy away from showing up on the internet. Not only have some more of its pictures appeared on the web, but the device has also been benchmarked, the results of which confirm the presence of the Android OS.

The AnTuTu benchmark results of the smartphone appeared on the Chinese website Weibo and the guys over at Nokia Powerusers managed to lay their hands on the screenshots. It is codenamed A110 and operates with the assistance of the Android KitKat 4.4.1. Another detail that has come to light is that the device will make the most of a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, but the exact version that it will employ has not been mentioned.

Normandy Nokia's expected Android-based future phone leaks yet again

As you can see in the screenshot, the Nokia Normandy will have a rather low-end 5MP camera. This could mean that the phone may not be a very expansive one and may fall in the affordable range of Android smartphones. It is likely to be capable of rendering visuals in 854 x 480p resolution.

And that’s not all. The serial leaker @evleaks has also found some more pictures of the phone and they clearly suggest that the phone will have dual SIM card slots. The lack of Live Tiles and presence of widgets are enough to give the operating system away. Interested users are also likely to have multiple color options for this handset.

The Nokia Normandy may show up at the MWC to be held in February.

Purported specifications:
