Slow uptake of Google TV seen

Although Google is determined to break into the TV space,Poor promotion and set backs in content distribution have caused the first Google TV devices to stagnate in the market,just weeks after launch.The Hardware is also expensive,compared to competing devices in the market,and Google hasn't found a killer paa to attract users with.
Users are still likely to watch TV while surfing the Web on a Mobile or a Tablet,but do not seem to want to surf,check e-mail or user social networking services on the TV itself.Other companies including Intel and Microsoft have failed to creatr a PC-TV usage hybrid.

LG P500 Optimus One Review

The Optimus One really is a sleek looking handset,and its 3.2inch capacitive touchscreen proved very responsive.Running on a 600 Mhz processor,there's virtually no lag during operation.It is one of the few Android handsets shipping with Froyo out-of-the-box.While overall Quality of sound fine,we were disappointed by the lack of enhancements like EQ presets.While it plays quite a few video formats.It does not support high resolution  video formats.With 3G,Wi-Fi,EDGE/GPRS and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2Dp and USB 2.0 you've got plenty of connectivity options.

The native browser works well,but it does not support flash.Twitter and Facebook clients are preloaded,and Gtalk and YouTube apps are also provided.Lg has Android store called the App Advisor.The 3 megapixel autofocus camera is one of the better once we've tested so far,with face tracking,manual focus, and geotagging.
The battery is capable of running over for 2 days with decent usage.Talktime averaged over 4hrs and 45 minute.At Rs 13,99,the Optimus One has enough clout to take on Samsung's Galaxy 3.The design is sloid,it's Android 2.2 out of the box,and it's got few handy apps.

Is 3g life Affordable?

License process of 3G already completed....Now this is the time of launching 3G services. All technical process of launching services going very fast and probably from next year January almost all licensed companies will start 3G services.

BSNL already running with 3G services and TATA DOCOMO  recently started 3G services in some areas..

But question here is that these services will really be affordable for common mobile users???

video calls will cost 5 paise/second in DOCOMO, Data plans are high in both BSNL and DOCOMO
initially for enjoyment video call price can be afforded but not daily

Quite possible initially to attract customer services might be provided at affordable cost.... But the huge money is  paid by telecom companies  to get license... so it looks that 3G services will be unavailable for a common man for next 1 or 2 years

But because of strong competition among the different telecom companies it seems prices of 3G services will really goes down as in 2G services 

So we have to wait to enjoy full features of 3G services at affordable price....
Now waiting for another companies to launch their services and see what the final prices of services are......Lets see!

The number of mobile internet surfers in India is growing rapidly. In 2007, the country had only two million such users. Now the number has gone up 20 times.”
Interestingly, Google’s Goel also pointed out that a majority of the internet users in the country searched for and downloaded music

Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core 1.5GHz shapes up

Nvidia is about to announce its Tegra 2 3D chip for tablets and mobile phones and the recently leaked roadmap offers a glimpse of Tegra 3 chips.
Tegra 2 3D in T25 format looks after tablet computers and promises 3D display support powered by Dual Cortex A9 processor that can clock to 1.2GHz. The CPU should be capable of achieving 5520 MIPS.

The production starts in Q1 2010 but according to some industry sources we should see some first designs by the end of this year. The phone variant shares the same specification but has Tegra 2 3D AP25 brand.

Tegra 3 T30 on the other hand looks like a quad core processor based on A9 cortex core that can work all the way to 1.5GHz and score 13800 MIPS. Nvidia promises 3 times faster graphics Blu-ray video and 1920x1200 display support. The chip supports Ultra low power CPU mode, something that is definitely necessary to put a quad core in a tablet. The plan was to sample the chip in Q4 2010.

The phone version is Tegra 3 AP30 and comes in dual or quad core variants. It supports 1366x768 resolution and just like its T30 brother it is most likely a 28nm processor.

Windows Mobile 7 will upset the status quo

Beancounters at the analyst outfit Ovum have warned not to write off Microsoft from the mobile market. The outfit said that Windows Phone 7 (WP7) will ‘upset the status quo' in the smartphone market in 2011.

Ovum claimed that WP7 will be the fastest growing platform which is a little contrary to what the other analysts say but is in like with what Microsoft has been expecting. Ovum said that Android will overtake iPhone as the favourite OS with mobile developers by the end of the year, perhaps indicating that while WP7 could grow quickly, Android is likely to have a good year too and continue its rapid growth.

Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore has previously said it will take certainly more than a couple of months before WP7 is profitable and has a good smartphone market share. There is a chance that WP7 could enjoy a burst of growth if cheaper handsets take off. The eagerly anticipated update to the current OS, called Mango is also expected soon, but it is a long way away from Ovum's dramatic prediction coming true.

Mobile numbers, addresses on Facebook 'a security risk

Sydney, Jan 17 (ANI): A security expert has warned that users should remove their home addresses and phone numbers from their Facebook accounts.
Graham Cluley said the website now gives third parties access to that information.
The website said in a blog post at the weekend that it would give developers of applications access to the contact information of users who install their apps.
"These permissions must be explicitly granted to your application by the user via our standard permissions dialogs. Please note that these permissions only provide access to a user's address and mobile phone number, not their friend's addresses or mobile phone numbers," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Facebook's Jeff Bowen as saying.
However, Sophos security expert Cluley, has raised doubts over the move.
"You have to ask yourself - is Facebook putting the safety of its 500+ million users as a top priority with this move?" he said.
"It won't take long for scammers to take advantage of this new facility, to use for their own criminal ends."
Cluley advised that users should take personal info such as home addresses and mobile numbers off their pages.
"You can imagine, for instance, that bad guys could set up a rogue app that collects mobile phone numbers and then uses that information for the purposes of SMS spamming or sells on the data to cold-calling companies," he said. (ANI)

Windows Error While Running Uninstall.exe

Uninstal.exe is a Windows uninstall program. But in some specific set of conditions, the process might replace FAT32 MBR, thereby resulting into inaccessible primary partition (usually C:) of system. Such situations require performing steps like recreating the primary partition and reinstalling Windows. So, to restore the lost information, you should use your recent data backup available or scan your affected hard drive by using powerful data recovery applications.

Consider an instance, you try to run Uninstal.exe in real mode, but instead of expected behavior, you encounter an error message describing that Winundo.dat is missing or damaged. The error further gives you an option to continue. Clicking either of the options (Yes or No) gives you the below error message:

"Invalid system disk"

This error appears after the system restarts.


The above behavior is exhibited when the following set of conditions is true:

You have converted your primary drive to FAT32 file system using Drive Converter utility
You have run Uninstal.exe from Windows startup disk or restored it manually
You have run Uninstal.exe in real mode


You have installed Windows
You have used a third-party disk partitioning utility
You have run Uninstal.exe

In the former case, running Uninstal.exe replaces FAT32 MBR with backup of FAT16 MBR and you observe the above error messages. However, in the latter scenario, the issue is observed if partitioning utility affects the partitioning structure of the disk.


To resolve such issues, you need to perform these steps in order:

Recreate you primary drive using utilities like Fdisk.exe
Reformat the primary drive
Reinstall Windows and other applications
Restore data from backup

At times, you cannot restore from the present data backup. It might occur if backup is damaged or not updated completely. Thus, to cope up with such situations, you should use data recovery software. These are advanced data recovery tools built with indigenous technology to safely recover the lost information from logically crashed drives. Such tools provide you interactive user interface, powerful recovery features and several other added characteristics.

Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery is a premier application to recover and restore lost data that supports Windows 7 (currently in RC 1), Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000. This read-only data recovery Software provides powerful features like Disk Cloning, Disk Imaging, Drive Status, RAW File recovery etc. It is compatible with FAT32, VFAT, NTFS and NTFS5 file systems.

Is This The Galaxy S Mini?

It was only a couple days ago that we saw pictures of an alleged Galaxy S2, and now we have a baby-sized one that’s supposed to be its little brother. Supposedly this guy has a 3.5″ 320×480 screen (probably Super AMOLED, to maintain the Galaxy style), runs Froyo 2.2, and has a 5MP camera on the back. Processor is listed as Qualcomm’s budget MSM7227. Model number is S5830, and it’s quad-band with WCDMA support.
The rectangular home button and general layout remind me of a sort of chubby, compact version of the reference Galaxy S. More pictures at Samfirmware and Tenaa. Supposedly it’ll be shown off at MWC; we’ll be there, so don’t you worry.Hmm lets see..
