Altogether this gives the feel of the festive season. The photo seems to find a suitable frame finally. To say about the contest for each day one winner will be selected at random until the Christmas Eve, where each winner will be awarded a prize amount of 500$. A cool contest to enjoy this season and it’s really foolish to even think of avoiding such an opportunity, isn’t it?
Setting up a home theater needs some basic reasons for which it is going to be installed and it also have factors that determine its quality and effectiveness? Some of the reasons why a proper speaker system is needed are maybe for gaming or digital home theater. For either of these reasons the factors are same but have varying values for each. The factors are frequency, area of coverage, power, and control provided. The amount of quality of a product also depends on the prize to be rendered for it.
Furniture is an obvious fitting found at houses, office, hotels, motels, bars and so on. Every one of us feels contented and relaxed after getting down into comfortable furnishings. It creates the necessity to choose one, which suits our sense and pattern. In addition to style and comfort, price is the major factor influencing, a product’s sales and popularity in the market with respect to the service providers and satisfaction to the customers.
Choosing a brand or organization that provides quality and cost effective furniture is itself a huge task for many of us, but as a single man standing out of this I am easily able to spot one, the modern line furniture, they provide special Nightclub furniture setting to furnish for events with inexpensive and gorgeous products never seen before.They cover all the aspects of furnishing needs with versatile and quick service.Wide category of services such as leather sofas, dining and bar furnishings and bedroom sets are undertaken.

Apart from survival, diet plays an important role in maintaining good health. Less food consumption leads to deficiency diseases, while too much of it results in obesity.
Lot of problems due to over or improper intake of food is being reported.As a cure, the diet pills, gives the control in our hands, with technology intruding in every aspect of our life, diet pills are the comfortable replacement for our dieting needs. It makes way to taste our favorite dish and also drives away the problems, such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Finally, diet pill is a valuable solution for every one who suffer a lot due to abnormal bodyweight and its effect.
It can be defined as the technique of studying the physical characteristics of humans to establish identity.
The increased need for security, and it is also convenient to simply place finger on to a scanner instead of remembering a complex password.
The concept is simple. Pre-stored database is used to compare your finger impression with a record already in database. When a match is found, access is granted. A fingerprint is like waves with ridges and valleys, they are scanned to verify the authenticity.
An optical (CCD) scanner similar to the ones used in digital cameras is used for scanning. It is an array of light sensitive diodes .When they come in contact with light, they generate an electrical signal.An ADC system that converts electrical signal into digital. The scanner will also have a light source to illuminate the finger.
But before checking with the database, it checks for contrast, sharpness and sheer quality of the image captured. If the image quality seems correct enough, the scanner compares the captured fingerprint with those in the database to find any match.
Scanning and matching the entire finger surely consumes a lot of processing. Instead, the scanners could compare specific features of the fingerprint, called as minutiae. They are points where ridge lines end or bifurcation occurs.
A specific number of minutiae is matched for the print to be accepted. But it is being proved that it is possible to fool by using fake prints.
Really its done again! AV700 Digital Video Recorder(portable cinema) is in market now.
With a 7-inch display and 16:9 aspect ratio, nearly half the size of desktop monitors, also a gigantic 100 GB of space.
It plays in DivX and MP4 formats, and lets you record directly from TV. With an USB port it can be easily connected to PC and any digicam with USB cable. Thus it is possible to transfer photos from a digicam directly to this mighty.

Its bot Qrio, sony's humanoid pet to say shortly.Been developed as a competitor to asimo and aibo. Apart from walking with stable steps,it can dance, kick a football, and adapt to irregular terrain. Can also understand human sentences and respond by voice or body gestures.
It is able to recognize individuals by memorizing and using specific data to identify each one of them. With the capability to locate the direction of sound.
Also it could sense its environment by three dimensions. The walking by obstacles is avoided.
With a male look it will be fine to call "He is QRIO" rather than "It is QRIO".
Let's wait to see when this 7 Kg of little entertainer hits the market.
What does make a mother board to be called as high end?
1. Dual-core support
2. Fastest memory
3. Increased SATA ports
4. supporting two graphics card
5. Overclocking support
6. Fire wire...
Dual-core processors as the latest to be in latest would do. The memory support should be dual-channel. Currently, DDR memory at 400 MHz and DDR2 at 888 MHz were available.
Unlike the usual four SATA ports try to get more no of SATA as possible,as one port can connect only one device. The SATA II with a data transfer rate of upto 300 MBps is to be compatible, such Mb's also support older SATA versions.
In mere future single graphics card that you currently have may not be sufficient in order to fulfill your quest you should try putting another one, so a Mb that support SLI is preferrable.
FireWire, a port used to connect digi cams with the Mb.
Advanced overclocking is much sought by gamers, who like to get all that their system have. Other than this few networking needs like Wi Fi, dual gigabit and bluetooth services should also be included.
A driver recommends his car's GPS to guide with an alternate route to his home,with an thought of avoiding the long traffic in the usual route.The GPS accepted his request and came out with an new route,which the driver started obeying thinking,he will be in home a lot earlier than usual.But after half an hour travel through sloppy roads of hills,he found himself at the top of a cliff!!
Similarly many real incidents were been reported, some are really funny to hear like driving into a hotel or lake as going by GPS guidance.
These things explains us with the flaws that needs to be taken care immediately in order to use the technology with ease and atmost comfort, as far as concerned every one needs 100% defectless product or services from their vendors.
Also it opens the eyes for all of us about an area which needs development in major scale in order to cater the future development needs.
Normal hand shake.
A button called “Power LCD Plus” allows to set the brightness of the LCD viewfinder. Massive 30 GB space enables huge storage and cuts the time being spent on video transfer to PC.
The zoom works very well with the optical IS system.Really impressive image quality provided by SDR-H20 for both indoors and outdoors.
The minor jitter that occurs at the end of the zoom is absent.
The battery part seems bulky at the back.
For a price of Rs 30k, this is an excellent product.
Basically in a speaker, a paper diaphragm vibrates in accordance with the electrical signal fed into it. Flashing some light on its components shows a powerful ring magnet, a voice coil that is wound around a paper cylinder.
Moving to its functionality, the principle behind is electromagnetism. The interaction between the electromagnetic coil and permanent magnet drives the speaker to produce sound.
Diaphragm,sound source for a speaker. The voice coil is attached to the centre of the paper diaphragm at one side, which compresses and rarefies the particles around, thus producing sound.
Other than this sound enclosures play a vital role in audio experience. The air flow through the enclosure affects the bass sounds through undesirable harmonics. Its dimensions have an effect on the wave resonance.
Deep into the technicals, considering an amplifier.It has two signals the input and the output signal. Naturally for high gain, input impedance(resistance) should be as high as possible and output impedance should be as low as possible.
Finally, speaking about multiple speakers, positioning the speakers is very important.Because reflections cause the sound to be heard across all areas of a room or hall.Consider as if fitting light for your room or hall while for speakers as both are waves,this would produce great results as well.
It is compatible with almost all operating systems such as Windows Vista / XP / 2000, Mac OS and Linux.
A solid 5 year warranty makes it a very attractive option.
The amount of time taken to transfer the data is within acceptable limits.
It lacks in encryption, security and backup software.
The drive seems slow relatively,it takes around 3 minutes to transfer a 700 MB file.
Finally it is a best choice for those who like to own a huge data transfer capable flash drive, at a reasonable price of Rs 750.
Scientists at ELTE University have designed a software that identifies the meaning for every kind of sound made by dogs,It's not in the verge of perfect finish.Still this software could understand the cause of barks, yaps, howls and growls more accurately than human ears could do.
What may be the use of such an dog-deciphering software? May be it could buildup the centuries of relationship between human and dogs strong and versatile, also this could bring the picture of involving more such experiments in mere future extending to other animals that comrade with us in this planet.

For Bussiness applications its really not needs to say about Blackberry configuration as it is been molded fully for that purpose while Iphone has features covering entertainment at all scales widely.
In Pearl 8120 the 2.2-inch display may be less sufficient, but still bright enough to get your work done, Here in Iphone, the 3.5-inch display fits the entire length of the phone with sharp, crystal clear and excellent colour reproduction.
The 8120v is with a pseudo-QWERTY keypad ”two letters per key” but Iphone needs one.
Pearl 8120 easily handle mostly used files types like DOC, LS, PDF, etc while apple concentrated the way music is being delivered.
In Iphone Playing around menus is fun just it needs to filch your finger up or down to scroll any list and swipe it left or right to move left or right.One button for exiting all applications,sounds great whereas in Blackberry a roller ball at the center is for all navigation between menus,Quite charming.
Video playback and Image management is fully accomplished in a very elegant manner for Iphone while pearl doesn’t wear much ammunition in this area though.
Moving to internet browsing Iphone renders zooming pages and switching between layouts, while Bb uses WIFI for GPRS and internet browsing in its own way.
To conclude, Iphone is the best phone viewed and Pearl 8120 is an excellent business device with just one shortcoming that is with high speed internet.
It’s another slot of Y series from Lenovo home entertainment series, The Y410, a notebook overall. The outer body has a quality finish, and 14.1-inch display unit creates power feel.
The display is clear with 1280*800 resolution and fair contrast ratio. Next the keypad seems glossy, but is also spongy.Coming to shortcut keys, well-laid-out, and no issues will arise using them Eg. volume adjustment, mute etc.
An array of multimedia keys, for users to listen to music without logging in to OS is a good implementation as well.
This model is available in various configurations with a Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 and a NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS with 128 MB of vRAM.
With an overall price of Rs 38,500, it does stand with values, loads of preinstalled software and Windows Vista Home Premium. Finally a multimedia notebook, to use in college or office, and this would convince your needs while fitting your wallet.

Now it’s about a four cartridge ink jet MFD which is more economical with the cartridge slot placed at the front right.
Features notable: -
1. 15 cm tall
2. Power connector in left, making it easy to place against a wall.
3. No power button, only softpower switch.
4. The input tray holds 100 sheets while the output tray holds 50.
5. Print quality decent.
6. Interface- USB 2.0.
The borders were not always crisp. Colours in the photo print were a little washed out. Normal text printing is slow: 27 seconds for a page. Printing an A4-size photo takes around 270 seconds —quite average.
Check this out:
The scanner recognises colours accurately, and picked up minute details.Fine print was legible even at the smallest point size. Combination documents print relatively faster at 33 seconds for a page.
It scans really fast.Additionally the MFD comes with ScanSoft PaperPort. ControlCentre 3 is a control panel that puts all the functions of this MFD at your disposal in a single place.
This is yet another new brand based on Intel’s new X38 chipset. A limited edition, and features hand-picked components for extreme overclockability. Incidentally, the PCI-E slots support the new PCI-E 2.0 standard too.
ASUS also adds a heat-pipe solution that integrates a water block on the Northbridge chipset for proper cooling.
The entire motherboard has a very intricate heat-pipe system that remains cool no matter about the wworking hours. It also embeds an inbuilt sensor that will warn you if temperature exceed threshold.
ASUS also have incorporated a special 2-phasememory voltage termination for voltage regulation even at overclocking.
The BIOS is full of overclocking options and tweaks and more than sufficient number of SATA, and USB ports. Looking at the price Rs 16,800 seems high, but it’s plenty of board for that much. ASUS includes a rich bundle too. Highly recommended for those looking at a high-end, stable platform in general .
Flash memory is nothing but the most popularly called USB drive. At the most basic level, flash memory is composed of array of gate transistors called cells.
These cells has two types of gates: NAND and NOR . They are also classified in two ways depending on how they store data, they are single level cells and multi level cells
SLC can store only one bit at a time, while MLC store more than one bit per cell,just by varying the electrical charges. Thus MLC devices will be able to store more data than the SLC devices.
These devices are already in the market, though they cost more than SLC ones.
Multi-level cells are created by stacking cells of the same size, i.e doubling the capacity. This is the type of memory used in iPods. Though, it doubles the capacity, access speeds is reduced.
Now at present flash technology has developed which inserts silicon columns between layers without stacking multiple layers.
Google has announced the launch of a new project called Knol, which aims to be a repository of the world’s information. Each topic or page on the Knol is called “a knol” .
This borrows from Squidoo which is another management site. Google won’t act the editor in any way, and there will be nothing like an official knol for each topic. It aims only to provide the tools and the server space.
Knol, currently in beta version is open to users by invitation only. Google will also host ads on each knol.
The point to note is that authors will get a significant share of the revenues .There is a danger that driven by ad revenues, there might be a proliferation of knols on commercial topics like microprocessor architecture , fashion design,etc.
There is also another argument, that because editing rights are locked, knol might contain some biased viewpoints, or that they might contain outdated information. But still there are certain arguments in favour of this new model. Since authors will no longer be anonymous, they might keep their knols objective and updated. But then again, knols can be searched by search engines, and there are fears that Google may screwup its algorithms so knols feature at the top of search results.
Every company has released or atleast working on a touch screen operated phone and KU990 is such a 3-inch, touch screen phone from LG. It doesn’t own many buttons on the phone, may be because of its touch screen functionality.
There is a dial on the back of the phone which can be used to scroll through items and change the volumes. Still it is inconvenient to use because scrolling through menus is difficult.
Scrolling using the touch-screen is little difficult as well because one with shaky hands will accidently launch an application off or on.
There is a keyboard on the touch-screen, and it works really well with both your fingers and stylus.
It has a 5 MegaPixel camera with flash, and a standard VGA camera for videoconferencing calls. A 100 MB internal memory seems small, but can support extendable memory using Micro SD card slot.
Great look, fun UI and easy to use make this a good phone. Still touchscreen should have been better, and the jog dial is just bad. With a price of Rs 21,900, just a good style.
Currently PARC is working on a program called Magitti, it uses what it knows about you to recommend activities that you can enjoy in your vicinity.
It gives a list of things to do in the area. In the first attempt , this list won’t be more personalized to your likes,but it’ll be able to tell which recommendations are more likely abide your interest in further usage.
Consider, if you’re a traveling buff, you will find historical landmarks at the top of your list. Also it edits its recommendations based on the time and day,as you wont like to go swiss during deep winter.
Magitti uses GPS facility to grasp the choices you make, and to find more about your destination using an online database. Entirely speaking a virtual responder, guide, and database useful for the whole in general.
Firstly, the outer light get passed through the lens and directed to the CCD(charge coupled device).
Then, the image is been focused on the CCD.
After which, an ADC (analogue-to-digital converter) converts the CCD grabbed image into digital signals.
This data was sent to the DSP(Digital Signal Processor) which creates the original image and also compresses it.
Finally, the image is stored on the inbuilt memory or in the memory stick.
Its a robot that communicates with humans socially, understands human feelings and react properly.It learns like an infant and shows feelings.
Like a infant it needs a environment for learning, if it is under stimulated it feels bored,and when over stimulated it shows fear.
It's a project being developed to get a bot with a three-year old infant IQ . Interestingly its torso was learning since 1993. Now its in a crawling-infant stage.
Another thing to note is, unlike other bots it makes eye contact with humans while others can't even differentiate between humans and objects.
First ‘robo sapiens’ as to rightly say . A 1.2 m tall astronaut like bot developed by honda.
It can climb stairs, look out for corners and even turns the light on/off. But was blind, deaf and dumb , it can only be remotely configured.
A pet bot,with a Memory Stick that dictates its behaviour. it can also controlled by PC or mobile device. It identifies its owner and can recharge itself.
Shortly, an entertainer in nature developed by sony electronics.
3D-Photonic Crystal Add-drop Filter, yet another new slot added to technology. It is developed by a team led by Rana Biswas, which enhances transmission through multiple channels along optical fibres.
This can be rightly said as a milestone in the development of optical networking and communication to eliminate various hinders involved in optical transmission links, resulting in flawless data transmission for the Internet and other fibre-based telecommunication systems.As sai d by Biswas,
“There are up to 160 wavelength channels travelling through an optical fibre at the same time. That means a lot of dialogue is going on simultaneously”.
Biswas, also explained that as information is transfered over multiple channels, it is necessary to periodically drop individual wavelength channels. At the same time, able to add data streams into the empty wavelength channels.
It is also said that when data is transferred along multiple channels it becomes necessary to receive only one signal at a point.
As I’ve used the iPod Touch, and all of us must say it’s exceptionally well .Atleast after you got the chance of working around with this little piece of certainity.
It incorporates a whole lot features in it
Firstly, excellent sound, with something technically said as tonal neutrality. Good bass response sounds equally well in Metal as well as with Jazz and Blues.
Secondlly photo viewer, browsing through the photos is as simple as flipping through an album. To prove its real touch sense, there’s a single button whose sole aim is to return to the main menu, regardless where you are.
Thirdly is very good video player, which satisfy even movie junkies with its large and clear screen.
Fourthly is the integrated WiFi which ensures stability in case of no connectivity with entire storage space as a Flash drive.
As far as now discussing about only its ads, there are no negative from me to say for such a piece of 17000 rupees, rare lifestyle products, like a Nokia N95 8GB, or even a BMW M3 that really deserves your hard earned cash.
A processor to compare with AMD mobile processor. With activating and deactivating button in the key board and touch pad.
The dimensions are same as the nx9000. Looking into the configuration, AMD Athlon M 2200+ processor, 256 MB RAM, 20 GB hard disk, CD-ROM drive and with a 14-inch display.
No signs of heating up while providing power for around 3 hours though using AMD processor.
Moving to the cons, the hard disk system, showing high access time and low scores. Secondly, price, at Rs 70,000, seems an expensive choice with such a configuration.
The same now goes to internet, Web 2.0 in the verge of updating our current internet.It aims in providing the end user with what he actually needs?
This system will be able to direct the user to appropriate website by optimized search using user feedback(input). So there wont be a need to open several search result pages.
This is not the only thing as to highlight, there is a whole lot of features to add, I hope presenting them in another post very soon, after I get a detail knowledge about them.
MP3 playback is excellent with the earphones supporting a lot. Four equalizer settings. The ear phones seem large and its unique, so it wont be possible to replace it with your favorite one.
Separate batteries for MP3 player and watch. Easy to connect to PC by the USB port.
The voice recorder has an inbuilt microphone. The %!@ MB can be used like a thumb drive.
Though the playback lasts for 5 hours, Rs 4,125 is high as there is no FM Radio or video.
