Using The Browser Smartly

Well I use Firefox,

I always prefer Internet Explorer.

May be some of the most dumb things to do.

We all know how Firefox ate away the Mighty IE.

Also who would not agree that Chrome and Opera are the de-facto smart and fast browsers.

So the best practice would be to install all the popular browsers and use them once in a while to see which one is giving the best results.

Also there may be a malware in your OS which is blocking a particular browser, so if you have some urgent work and if you have not already installed few browsers you may have to urgently download a browser which may delay your task at hand.

Also if a browser is not working at a particular time , it is always advisable to opt for a uninstall and a re-install which may restore the vitality of the utility software.

Also always have the latest version of browsers and OS to be on the safe side of the various online threats.

A Artificial Intelligent MP3 PLayer

Using promoting and demoting can be used as a easy way to tun ethe shuffle function of a Juke Box,

For example if we like a song, we give thumbs up, if we don't we give a thumbs down.

Reaching a pre specified number of thumbs down could mark the song for deletion.

Also we could mark songs as damaged and substandard audio.

Also a option play more songs of this beat , tempo or mood could make the life easier for the listener.

Also Inbuilt DJ Software to tweak the songs could also make the same songs appear more appealing each time we play them.

Or say use AI DJ to tweak your regular songs mode.

Man what kind of people do billionaires hire,

INtel Think.

A Quad Battery Phone Technology or Wireless Charge? Can we Innovate --Futuristics

There are dual SIM phones but no dual battery phones. I mean if we miniaturise the phone batt., we can have 4 batteries in one phone

WE can charge the batteries in the docket or in phone and switch to various batteries when need arises.
Surely some engineering at this front can make consumers life easy.
Or going to the futuristics if there is some way to wirelessly charge the phone, just like we get the audio signal if we can charge the phone vi aa WAN then life could be even easier and we could do without miniaturisation with a single battery.

Fast Evolving Technology Cycle

The speed with which tech is evolving is awe inspiring.

Look new App dev languages and versions every few months.

New Androoid versions, every few months.

Man is choice spoiling you or killing you.

Want to buy a laptop or mobile phone or the latest craze tablets,
there is a deluge in the market and they have their differentators.

Surely today you are in a position to give up your current gadgets for a new one ever more quickly than before.

Just like a new GF or BF every friday, with a new Movie release.

Phones from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars to , diamond studded million bargains, there is one even for beggars, and one for a king.

Difficult to keep pace with the technology for developers,
and at the same time producing interesting content and marketing it was never as exciting and possible for even small time technocrats.

With opportunities galore for a leap into the future.

Now is the time to get inventive or be a smart customer with a Golden Age Gadget.

A Smart Adaptor : Embedded Electronics

Customer safety was never a priority for Indian or World companies.

Think of it like this, earphones used with music players and phones are not the best for ears.

Similarly there was a recent accident of a man burning to death using laptop.

How embedded electronics could come to rescue,

if only human life was precious.

If the adaptor has a small circuit maybe costing 20 Rs only,

which cuts off the current supply if high current is detected at the end of the circuit which should be at 12 Volts.

Also one of the same tricks at the laptop body will make sure a current shock never occurs.

But people do die at ATM's getting a shock,

where this small frugal engineering could save precious Human Life.

A million TRansformations : A mathematical Approach to Encryption and OTP

How mathematics can help in computing and encryptions.

Lets take OTP case.

If you design a software which develops one lakh passwords of lengths of 2000 bytes.

Then if you have one million users you can use any one of the transformations to transform this password for a specific user.

You could have a function like GetPassword( seedValue,TransformationId ). The individual transformations could be given to the user along with a algorithm to generate a random code from a seed value. If this seed value is also differed , it could add to the strength of the password.

We coudl hide the password number in the password itself and the software at the cloud could be used to generate the same password. As a appliance could have been used we can overcome the barrier or very large passwords which can be used to make the job of hacker a prespiring one.

The Auto Dish Antenna

Surely there needs to be an automation to delight the consumer.

So a display panel which shows the current orientation to help you find the signal of the right satellite by moving the dish antenna manually.

Better still could be auto detect settings with swivellable and automatic orientation with a small box with buttons.

With number of ip services growing there could be alternate arrangements with other partners to augment the content in that case there could be remote controlled through the home control of the dish antenna to tap these communication signals of some other satellites of the partner or sister concerns.

Technology was made to make human intervention a minimum, but how far are we from such a future

I am sure US and Europe can have the same in one month but what about India?

Technology Kiss

You always carry your 4G phone, steroidal and double edges sword. Connected to the internet like air is required for survival. Corporate users are even more dependent on the ubiquitous business apps. Here you are with your breathing device without which you can not do and all chances that you become addict of this internet app technology.

The list of corporate apps are unending. Think of the scenarios. You video conference with your stakeholders and get an additional cues on their body language to make out that your deal may get through or not.

So your phone is your second personal secretary doing super human capability works for you. Surely you are getting addicted to this power to an extent that you may not be able to do with out it.

Just like that Sun Kiss or winter kiss, beware of that technology kiss which may some time smirk at you.

My Mini Data Center : Futuristics

The way mobile processors aredeveloping with upto eight cores for Graphical Processing. Mobiles will never be the same again. In a few years time we will have full fledged ERP solutions on the mobile. Mobiles will be used for hard core gaming.Also some times mobiles may replace the Servers, well may be in five years.

Sure things are happening and you have mobiles powering laptops. With GPU's used for Hardware acceleration, mobiles will become powerful computing devices which would be ultra portable and most powerful. We may be having a fully secure mobile with two virtual OS, boot one for personal use, one for office use, to keep the company data safe.

Seamless and almost realtime data access would be the order of the day. A gamer would be completely submerged by the number of games and speed of the mobile. Maybe here a tablet may serve a even better purpose by giving more space to the screen and convenience of gaming.

Devices as big as a shoe box may contain hundreds of Mobile processors with a common interface for maintenance and other purposes, will reduce the cost of computing and power and cooling costs will come down drastically.It will be esp useful where real estate costs are rising like hell, and also youi could transfer a data center at your will.

Politics, Business and Technology

How are the three related. Let me take this chance to educate my western friends about the business environment in India.

Take the 2G crisis in india. 2G spectrum issue has rocked Indian polity beyond recognition. There is inordinant delay in the 3G spectrm allocation. When do we get technology like 4G , LTE et al in India. When business travelers come to India, surely they must be feeling crippled by the Internet infrastrucure of india. I mean this is how polity is related to technology. In western countries 4G and LTE are the norm, In india we are grappling with 3G.

Also many a times business sense and technology sense do not converge. 4G and LTE may not be at price points attractive to Indian purchasing power. Also cost of setting up the business may be prohibitive. In such a case the government should be able to take a hit on their revenues in favor of a more modern Information Highway infrastructure in the country, which is ot happening and hense the increase in break even and low ROI may prevent companies to foray into these endeavours.

So friend what is this hype all about. Again this is an opportunity to make a mark in the Indian Market, if any body can do it real cheap, just like the Vodafone telecom case study, surely they can change the competitive landscape of Indian telecom story.

Claytronics and Robotics

With biological nano bots used for many surgical and non- surgical measures in medicine science. Claytronics also promises a moon. Take for example the problem of a robotic hand which is a big problem for mecahinical and computer science engineers. That is making a robot to fasten its hold against an object for which various crass methods like balloon filled with sand or other materials are being used. Think of a robot with a claytronics hand. When it wants to carry water its hands change shape to a form of bowl to carry water. When it wants to punch an enemy in US warfare, its hands take the shape of sharp spikes, which emits sharpnels against human beings.

Suely there is no end to the way claytronics can be used to help human beings in achieving their machinistic ends. Think for example a tow with a programming to change into a Car, a flying aeroplane or a helocopter on pressing buttons.

Smart material will surely revolutionalize the way we work with objects. A CPU which can change its configuration including the types and sizes of cores and the number of CPU's to optimize programming problems and work at hand.

Oh, how far may we be from such a future. The way science is progressing 20 years, uhh.

What would the 10 star hotels offer you in terms of Technology

More and more classes are being created and the 5 star clients grew wary of the hotel clientele and wnated 6 star and 7 star hotels.

Many people got wary of the culture on Earth and started suiciding to teleport themselves to a better place or self destruct, depending on the ultimate truth of existence.

So the question is do the air borne virus and bacteria only effects us when some body coughs or sneezes or are they not present in the air medium if some one coughs or sneezes.

So surely hotels of future will say a harmful biotices free environment in the hotel and some years later probiotic atmosphere good for health.

There may be sanitising AC's with carrtridges and later on probiotic AC's with Cartrdges of biotics.

I mean are the likes of Intel, Microsoft and Google listening and ready to protect this idea with their patent and IPR regime.

Artificial Intelligence and Scope of Problem Solving

Human brain is smart and the best.

But AI can prove to be better.

How , say if we teach a human being how to solve a small puzzle of 10 pieces, Human being can solve it, but using the same technique human being can not solve apuzzle with 10,000 pieces.

That can surely be done if we teach AI expert system to solve the same problem.

So a Super Computer can do what 10,000 Human beings can't do.

So if we teach computers the Human Logic ( Which in itself is Mutant ) , surely it can attempt bigger problems.

Think about it.

If we teach a computer to answer call center queries, a Intel Core-i7 computer could be used to connect to a PBX or VOIP system and answer 1000,'s of queries per second depending on the lines it can handle.

Same can not be achived through Human Beings without undergoing a lot of birth pangs from recruitment, retention to layoff.

How to make a 4 digit PIN 24 times secure by adding just one Button

Think man, if Letters( Characters can be Upper case and Lowercase ) , why numbers can't be.

So if we have uppercase and lower case numbers we can have a very much more secure 4 digit pin?

I mean would it be 24 times more stronger?


Any body out there, with a mathemetical acumen?

How to create a Fail Proof Robust OS in a Jiffy

Thinking out of the box makes every thing possible.

Take for instance what if the OS is not stored or installed in the Hard Disk but comes as ROM chips the WORM type. ie can't be modified hence can't be corrupted.

If there are hot swappable chip slots then redundancy and multi boot OS can be created in a jiffy by just slipping in the chips to the slot. No chance of corrupting of OS.

Also just change from which slot you want to boot at the time of booting or shutting down and hey you have a multi boot PC.

To build redundancy in the PC put two chips of the same Os in the stwo slots and hey if one chip fails the other takes over, I mean high avialability in the data center would never be a problem again.

How to create Robust OS which use less Memory :

Why not design modular OS. OS divided into logical groups depending on the use of the functionality.

This way only modules required for a particular function may be loaded in the memory hense giving less latency and more responsive programs in a cheaper computer and also reduce the future digital divide and a digital society. This coudl be the economising effect of Modularizing OS.

Also a high end use could be co-Operating Systems, which work with Each other.

For example you want to think of a computer system of the Future. One which would go to chat mode and only talk to you and play your fav music, so for that just AudioOS may be enough ie diaplay may not be on.

Suppose you want to get a AI Expert Problem solved the Modular or co - OS may be loaded to memory which could diagnose your problem.

A Picture OS for Defence USE

You could create a PIC component to encode and encrypt your message where a particular picture means something, and a series of pictures could mean some thing. Highly secret information could be sent as a image or a fish school of images, which know how to combine and give the message, only on your processor.

Come on beat that.

Now do that development and sent me the 100 dollar cheque.
