Many people became millionaires just by being on the community and earning Linden dollars. There is a real Real Estate in which million of Sq. Mtres. are sold and bought every year.
ALL this while you pedal your cycle and wear a goggle to give you the experience. This is quite an innovative application of virtual reality which gives a regular exerciser more inspiration to do exercise and improve health. It breaks the monotony and demotivation of working in the same setting at all the times.

Also those people who are shy of women but are not technology averse would also be able to use the robot to learn the social skills to deal with women. All in all a very good news for all those who love technology and Social Robots are on their way to enrich your lives in ways hitherito not possible till now.

New investment in Hardware or software should be done taking into consideration all these factors as the new blade and rack servers are very high on computing power and power efficiency and hense all these factors can very easily contribute towards reducing the Total Cost of Operation and Maintenence. Also the architecture results in reduced real estate requirements which is so very much crucial in running the operations in a Real Estate costly ( Read Cosmopolitan ) environment.
Also simplicity in the data Center also results in ease with which scaling can be done by taking into account the upgradibility of processor accomodated by your motherboard. Backup and restoration is also simplified.
But one point is that high availability would be required as if one node fails multiple applications can go down, hense increasing the criticality of the Appllications stored on these architetures.
Hense both open source and paid model should be continued at all the times.

Well look forward to buying one from Mercedes in a couple of years which would be totally glitch free.
Wii has a number of games like Boxing, Golf, Bowling, Base Ball, Tennis et al where motion gloves are used to play and interact with the console. Hense it is being used in Canada to treat stroke patients to recover and develop and strengthen their muscles. Hense it appears that gaming is no longer only a dysfunctional activity spurring violence in kids but also do have its own positives which are being appreciated with passing time.
I think it’s a concept whose idea has come. It makes learning a fun activity and teaches higher order concepts in a much simpler manner.
Yes its Strange but a near possibility in about 5-10 years if every thing goes right. We always heard of memory going the chip way but now we hear of Supercomputer on chip. How it is made possible. Well by using optical signals than electric ones using electro – optical modulators. The speed of data transfer would increase by a factor of 100 and the energy expended would decrease by a factor of 10. Size would be 10-1000 times smaller than a typical super computer of today.
So data intensive applications requiring mission critical speed would be made possible at a miniature level saving on space and power consumption.
Also lot needs to be done in the field of User Interface which is most probably going to be a any language voice input or control via brain electric waves. Research is already on in this field and lot more is expected in the coming 1/2 a decade.
I hope we are able to accoomlpish the goal of having 1 laptop in every house by 2014, so that e-commerce and education can take a good leap ahead. Also I hope that we are able to build in same capabilities even in the Mobile to build a business network where every one in the world is connected to every one else by just a two node social network.

The mouse used would be an intelligent one monitoring heart rate and deducing the mood of the student. Human may always be required for educating the students but this could work as an educational supplement.
I am waiting for the ultimate product where higher education would be interactive and fun o learn using virtual teachers like the Eve which has been developed.

There are tools to avoid spammers but there are tools to hack these. But I think what people call spammers are just plain vanilla happy Marketers. When you market its sauve and decent, when others do the same it is spamming.
Maybe people can adopt stratgies to overcome spam as maintaining separtae e-Mails for critical and non critical accounts and not sharing the details of critical one with any web site. Apart from the normal filtering and blocking of domains.
Also habitual and useless spammer directory could be built on the lines of folksonomy, that anyone feeling strongly against a domain notifies the ICANN and based on some critical reportage the domains could be blocked by the ICANN.
OK Signing off,
More on this in later posts.

For every update operation in the website draw where it will effect the other parts of the website and decide if the change is critical, non critical or so. If critical the change should be made immediately and the web server cache should be also updated immediately. If non critical the change should be made in the database itself.
So are you adopting propagation diagrams today.

Now work offline with your office documents edit and save them with internet connectivity and sync them to online version at your convenienece and on the availability of internet connection.
Amazon competes with sony in the field of E-Books.
By the way apple already has a model by the same type.

For example little have been said about the ill effects of computers. And you will find less literature in main stream media about the ill effects of Cellular phones. Customers are live Guinny pigs in this corporate led experimentation of technolgy on the people of Earth.
E-Books with adoption will tend to get less costly and more feature rich and would eventually be adopted to a wider degree by users. Innovative features like books coming with bundled offer of preloaded Best Sellers and trial subscriptions of magazines will make marketing of the product more easier.
Also BRIC economies will take a while before adopting the produt.
It also shows that companies can be grown just on the basis of organic growth and not on inorganic growth. Tech Mahindra is a company although small but grew its revenue 130% and its employee base by 90% in one year. It shows that organic growth is possible , and rapid scaling makes sense. Other bigger companies like Infosys and TCS have shown high employee scaling of upto 40% a year, but are now planning for growth through acquisition as talent is difficult to find.

Also web cams are being used to detect user motion and control avatars online. Lot of research is being carried out lately in the field of thought control and soon we would have a technology which would enable complicated data transfer to computer memory via imagination and thinking. With more research the accuracy and bandwidth of such data transfer methods is only going to increase in the coming days.
http://www.panimages.org/ is a site which searches data by co-relating and translating the term in 350 online dictionaries and turning up almost 57 times on an average image results. Very handy for people of countries who uses language other than English or French.
It seaches for photos on the net and on flickr and shows them in two different panes . Try out a fun tool to try out.

Security methods are being developed at breakneck speed to keep the uneven minded hackers and online pirates at bay. US has developed a method by which secure credit card transactions can be done by ceating a one time credit card number for use with non-secure or non-participating e-commerce sites.
In India people are apprehensive of Credit Card products due to strong arm tactic used even by reputed banks like ICICI and HSBC under media scanner and court scrutiny. Recently Maharstra govt. has taken measures to ensure that agencies used by Banks do not hire con men and use gentle means to get their money back.
Thats cool. Version UD2 would also let an adult control the robot apart from the child ( 7 months child can use it) and the automatic control which would enable parents to train the kids in complex movements leading to enhanced cognition.

Now germany has created a robot with 6 sensors in various parts of the arm which detects an obstacle like human and gently nudges the human as if to tell get out of my way. The robot is yet to get commercialised, but it makes the life of a Human Being more safe in Industrial settings. Robots have been a part of Industrial Workforce for decades doing dangerous work like welding et al.

Now it could also be used by males to avoid battery by passers by in India.
The idea is good, maybe instead of chat a results page should be displayed, where as historical questions and answers could be categorised and similar questions couldf be given ready made results pages. Also researc h shoiuld be done and output pages for most common search terms could be created in advance and updated as the search results may include more internet start - ups.

2. If a phone is built with Biometric Identification built into chip then a bank of people who can use the phone can be built and could be used only by the authorised person even if it is stolen or lost.
3.MFD Phones are full of glitches, the problem could be solved by having separate chip for each functionality optimised for a function and a general purpose chip for concurrent use.
4. YOur Teastall worker and President of US using same service. Can't digest that. Need for premium services for premium phones. How could be that.
Having a service with extra bandwidth for premium customers who can pay more so that they can amplify the signal and use effects like reverb for business, and others for romantic talk or kinky talk. Also lovers could dedicate customised songs to each other and play radio jock and have loads of other fun.
5.If nano mechanical sound harvesting probes could be built they could be used for harvesting sound energy and converting into electical charge for use.
Normal vibrations from Radio , TV and Music system and other sources of high noise and vibration could be used to generate electricity by placing a probe machine near the source of vibration.
Also no more wars for oil.
1. A mobile for the blind with a tactile display and keys with braille keys. The tactile display could be used for feeling the messages, dialled numbers and Multimedia Messages.
2. A 3-D I-Pod where videos could have a degree of 3-dimensionality.

The game changers were 10.2 million i-pods sold, 1.11 million i-phones sold and 2.16 million of i-macs sold. Apple is a company which has immense scope for growth as it has recently launched leopard operating system. Apple continues to innovate and microsft blatantly and belatedly copies microsoft product features and ideas and stays ahead? Could it be because of bad marketing.
Leopard OS is lot better than Vista according to experts and also the process of reducing the prices did its own good on the fortune of Apple which is now a 160 billion valued company.

Every technology has its good and evil sides. For example Nuclear Technology was developed for Civil Energy Generation and for good wars, but people use it to threaten neighbous and society at large.
Another example where biomodelling is being tried again assuming that nature is the best guide is brain simulation and AI applications. Although it is at its primitive stages with people not able to simulate even a second of Mouse Brain Activity.
After all aliens may not be god's and World could just be a MMOG or Simulation study with each component having perception ability. Is any study being made to find if nature is perfect, please post your comments freely.

Also I think some work should be done with Cyber Copyright so that whatever people publish becomes copyrighted automatically free of cost and Main media should encourage blogger to enter mainstream, by playing ethical. Also newspapers could offer subsidized advrt. space in newspaper to generate more support for alternate media.

What AMD needs to focus on is branding and Marketing initiatives. It has some better than intel processor ranges and features but the consumer is shy to risk because of lack of product knowledge. AMD needs to invest more in creating product education and awareness. After all no one including intel is invincible, take the Nokia example with Battery fisco resulting in a sure dent in market share.
AMD could auger well by positioning its products differently than intel and go into JV with manufacturers from emerging economies who are now concentrating on SemiConductor reasearch and hardware.

This requires that you rethink about your publication business today. The threat side includes online magazines and e-Books and Papers which are set to replace the way business is done. Also the best way out is to start a online presnse with advertising as a revenue model and slowly start with subscription model. Also you can earn though product referrals and tie up with PR agencies.

Apart from technological companies others like automobile companies are also especially concentrating on their product portfolio for the Indian market. Innovating for Indian market is paying off with growing number of millionaires even the companies selling premium products stand to benefit.
Another benefit which google has is that it is tying up with multiple service providers unlike apple which only supports AT & T officially.
Blade servers can be used where you require a highly scalable system whichgrows along with the growth of business so that individual blades can be added as and when required.

1. A document redaction software which is used to erase parts of documents so that only authorised people like top managers and inside people can see them. Also this gives rise to intra document security as separate documents need not be created for haring or security purposes.
2. Another application renders parts of print on an ordinar paper illegible to people but can be viwed only under specil ink, to mark passport of dangerous crminals who are beyond the claws of law or dangerous paedophiles who can not be caught on camera.

To reduce the cost of energy consumed now a days the rtend is to go in for multicore servers, dual, quad or eight core servers from sun, IBM , AMd et al are already there in the market catering to the data center demand.
Multicore servers can reduce power requirements upto 66% and can also be used for server virtualisation.
Wednesday, October 17, 2007
The storage is given an abstraction. There are hardware and software devices to attain storage virtualisation. If you use hardware devices for packet switching its prone to evasdropping and if you use software controllers then the systems are inoperable with other vendors devices.
Storage abstraction can be used for cost savings in case of consolidation of infrastructure post M & A.

The solution is to set up a technological CoE ( Centre Of Excellence ). This centre can be used to have a minimum of 15-25 people who develop organisation repatoire of best practices and processes to be used for scaling the product development. When skill repository is developed fully then you can train more people on the same technology and set up a full fledged profit centre around the technology. Although the CoE would first be just a cost centre but later it will become a source of business growth and cash revenues.
Also you could milk the concept further by setting up a customer centric CoE which could be used to create a interface for customers to excel at their business by outsourcing their technical requirements.

So if you are into Extra Corporate enterprise relationships make sure that you take the requisite steps to stem the menace of compromised security. Make sure you are connected to stakeholder through secure VPN and make sure there are right security policies in the organisation to curb social engineering.
Occasionally take the help of ethical hackers to proactively scout your business site and server for vulnerabilities and periodically conduct a security audit to check the security readiness and DR and BC readiness.

Technology can provide strategic tools to the workforce to work smart with gadgets like PDA and UMPC’s creating a direct connection with SCM which captures almost live data making decision making at the top level management more relevant and timely resulting in heavy corporate profits.
The US companies which outsource to the Indian Tech. firms will soon loose the arbitrage enjoyed by the former and result in making outsourcing untenable to the US companies. All in all Indian companies stand to gain relatively more in overall terms compared to the US technological companies. Also the employability of US Technological workers improve as a whole.
If one has a database of mobile users who are customers , then they can be easily contacted for customized product and service offerings. Payments can be made via Cellular mode. Cells can be used for marketing products in a customized way.
In Bangalore Malls actually use BlueTooth servers to target customers with offers which can be downloaded from Hoardings giving the exact details of offer and customized offers according to customer purchase history. Sales van be closed more easily and turnover can be increased. Also movie tickets of Multiplexes can be booked through Cells. All in All cell is turning out to be a massively important device for marketers to reach customers by leveraging mobile technology. With high tech devices being churned out at least prices this segment is only likely to see further growth. With digital distribution of entertainment content like Audio and Video on demand cornering a greater market share of telecom companies in India in the near future.
Lots of research in Technology sphere, like Robotics and Consumer Electronics and Durables. Also Wireless technology, but adoption is slow. There are various reasons for this slow adoption. One of them being lots of funds already sunk into previous technologies which are unable to give the required ROI. In such a scenario the telecom companies are not wishing to invest in expensive infrastructure required for costly upgrades which benefits only the consumer and not the companies who invest. And any company leave alone technology companies exist for the sole purpose of making profits.
Take robotics, Research Pilot successful models are available but are not cheap enough for commercial exploitation. And also in the case of technology is not even properly tested for safety of commercial use with human beings. Also what will happen to human living if AI applications take over the mundane technological task. Also many Human beings would not be capable of higher level jobs which they may be offered in absence of mundane jobs.
Apple allows people to use software updates to unlock its i-Phone to be used with other than AT&T. Apple has taken no steps to proactively dissuade users from adopting this practice. Have you ever given a thought to why they allow people to hack their i-Phones. Well I tried to put some pressure on my mind.
Do they want to increase their i-Phone sales at any cost to make it another block buster record breaking product like the sibling product i-Pod and place it in the same league. Or are they having the technology to fill the gap. Or they just want people who love apple products to use them at any cost giving them viral publicity at no additional cost.
Want to convert your videos into formats like mpg, mov or any other format while downloading itself from any site. Just add your URL to the video to the textbox on the homepage and choose a format and click on download in requisite format on the click of a button.
A cool utility to change the format of video.
Our first step in that direction is to create computers that can understand native languages with all its verbose nature. Search engines are being designed which can understand natural language. There have been defeated attempts at it, but still many ventures keep trying the lucrative segment as keyword search is not as user friendly to the non geeks.
University of California is also designing a Search Engine which annotates songs based on inputs from human inputs form a online game Listen Game, which will allow users to search songs based on attributes rather than artiste or label. Like you are in a mood to hear Funky songs, just type Funky songs of Beatles, and lo presto you have the results in front of you. Cool innovation I say.
It only proves just like nature may have designed microcosmic life which may be very small in size but may be having Intelligence very high compared to that of a human being. I am sure future research may reveal such fantastic revelations. Maybe we are Co-inhabiting Earth with many other microcosmic intelligent species we are not aware of and they may have a role in our destiny.
Tokens are one way of having safe banking transactions. One Time Password tokens are used to generate one time passwords which are safer than static passwords. Also smart tokens can be used to embed a chip in the token which authenticates user to the web site of the bank. Technological advances which makes life of hapless customers go a bit easy. Thats all about hardware security device and safe banking transactions.

I think VR technology is a greater danger to the Humanity compared to Robotic invasion envisioned of the future.
Previous blunders by great intellectuals of developed world includes the Y2K bug which causedbillions of dollars lost due to poor technological prognosis.
This is achived through Unified Communications. What with Microsoft having a dedicated server for it although an integrated solution is still a distant dream.

But Matsushita took the effort on to the other direction this week by announcing its Waterproof and shock proof notebook PC. Now swim in the pool and chat or check e-mail. Or throw the laptop from the top of a building and get it in one peice at the bottom of the building.
Cool man, PC's are getting rugged is a good news as they can double up as a portable entertainment device and an object of business transactions. Also more power packed and efficient m/c's mean more productivity at work.

Humanm beings just exercise finer judgement and nuances t choose the software they like. I think current technology is enough to support such unctionality. Then is it just lack of thought and creativity that these applications are not developed, or is it to feed xillions of Cyber Coolies in earning their livelyhood.

So opening up a new and easy channel to contact ( Touch Point Spectrum) with the company would obviously result in the companies generating more of enquiries and more closed sales .
Although unethical but who cares about ethics now-a -days. So an important lesson in corporate marketing through blog is assume annonymous identity and become your own companies staunch supporters.

Every body in management circles talk about innovation so why should spammers be behind. After using text message for spamming 90% of your mailbox and costing Rs 50,000 per employee per year lost in productivity, they defeated the filters developed for them and ceated Image spam with non - unique altered signatures to overwhelm the filters. Now they are out with a new system, spam in a link.
This new form of spam already reached 4% of total spam. Resulting in spam being able to fool the security filters again.
Guys are spammers not tech savvy.

Current chips are of 90nm scale. research is on on 65 nm and 45 nm scale chips. Recently IBM and Intel have started to focus on the 32 nm category and chips based on the same would be available in the market soon. In future research would be focussed on 22 and 16 nm chips.
What is all this talk about Nanoscale chips. This is the size of transistors, as the transistor size decreases more and more transistors can be packed on to the chip and energy requirement goes down and speed and powerfulness of the chip increases. Also there is economy of scale in productivity gains which result into chip cost dropping and the gains being passed on to the end consumer.

The search engine is supposed to help both the manufacturing companies and the retail customer. manufacturing comapnies deal with elephantine number of parts and shapes and remembering the codes and technical names of these products itself is a great headache and this search engine is made to make the job easier for the customer. Th esearch is completed in seconds compared to earlier searchs which could take hours to weeks to conduct search.
There are two obvious advantages of using this new system.
1. If comapanies want to hide the details of patented designs and only display on demand then it can certainly help the users and companies to hide the design details.
2. Also it is found that 10-16% of user parts are ordered via multiple vendors in global corporations causing millions or dollars down the drain in duplicated efforts. Duplicate designs are drawn from scratch resulting in wastage of time and effort. 3d-seek can be used to keep a track of parts and inventories in multilocation companies. It can also be used in a single location company to keep a track of spare parts.
When you submit the doodle ( Sketch ) a 3d image which can be rotated and viewed of all the parts which match the sketch is thrown up.

Some Institutions react by including a blank semister whose content is decided by the experts at the beginning of the Semester by looking at the trends and upcoming technologies.
But I have my own view that what is learnt on job can not be picked up through any academic project or live project work. Hense the earlier a person is involved in actual job, ie on the job the better.
Also concepts and problem solving should be fostered in the candidates, so that they are not afraid when they approach real life problems.
Taser is a kind of Stun Gun used to stun clients who are out to kill the humanity. Also they can be used to diffuse mines in Iraq and Afghanistan. As long as robot doesn't decide when to shoot armed by AI experts believe that the technology is safe.

VAS is all set to be the next blockbuster revenue generator for these companies and would keep the telco's Juggernaut rolling ahead with high momentum. In this direction Mauj has roped in Sameera reddy the lass of tinsel town to create value added services around the bollywood theme. Currently the market is worth 300 Cr Rs in 5-7 years it is set to grow to 30,000 Cr. Rs. in India. The services would be Wall papars of the Lass and using her voice in alarms and reminders et al to create interest in the general public and also to create higher revenue.

Voice interface is soon going to be a thing of the past. What with Hitachi Inc of Japan having developed a technology which can be used successfully for the pupose of interacting with Computer. It especially places the ability to physically challenged people to give commands and control the computer.
Previously there have been forays into the same area by US comapanies but it required a chip to be implanted inside the brain under the skull. But the news technology is a radical deviation from the previous research in which people only require to wear a head band with sensors weighing 1 Kg of wieght. Infrared rays are transmitted through the brain to map the blood movement and record activity of the brain. For example one person could use the Frontal Coprtex of ones brain which is used for problem solving and by doing some calculation there could make a train move or halt.
Cool but I say still crude. I think it should be able to read any text or graphical 2-d or 3-d image also from brain and directly input it into a editing software, then I think some progress would have been made. The presesnt system is just a crude achive ment of what would be possible in a year or two.

You can type product or products separated by commas and compare the search across regions, countries and languages. The feature is a coll data mining tool in the hands of the end user and business users to find trends in various countris.For example if I type PC,Mobile in the box and find trends I get a Graphical representation of the comparison of the two terms used for search across the above categories. You could know which product is better by typing two or more products in a category. Marketers can use the information to their great benefit. I think this is one servcice for which eventually Google could charge the Business Community.
Robots which can map their environmental information and use it to find way in other parts of the same building or a office or home are being designed and tested. Suppose a particular building has the same type of design in all floors thana combat robot used for fighting terrorists or other hostage taken crisis could easily navigate in the maze and deliver their expected results.
Domestic robots could be fed with maps of their area of operation and could work better than they do with their sensor technology.
Also a team of Robots ( Say 4 ) could map an area faster and could share that info with other robots through wireless network and do better teamwork than humans.

Let us take the axample of Movies. How augmented reality can help in creating better movie experience. You could crate studios and rent them to people and earn cash . Or you could use these virtual studios and place the artists in them so that the cost of a real studio is saved. This is but one of the number of applications possible with augmented reality.
Also suppose you have a mobile you could use GPS and sensors on mobile and make the mobile experience a memorable one for user by adding value added service like locating which location a video camera is poointing at and if for eg it is a resturant you display the Menu and wait time to the user.
Wow, this is really some news.
