September 23rd, 2015: Next Doomsday? Tue, 22 Sep 2015 07:23:01 +0000 The internet has been abuzz, ever since 2015 began, about the month of September and 23rd of September to be exact. Why is this date so significant? Some people believe that the day of judgement will on this very date and the world as we know it, will end. The date has been popping up in cryptic ways in some scriptures, films and movies; this has lead people to believe that this date holds some significance. Let’s look at some facts and see if there is some truth to this assumption.


The Comet

Apparently there is a comet that will pass by our earth late in September; could this be the end of the world event that people are predicting. This comet will be rather large and it is believed that it will come very close to earth. One thing of note here is that, if it was that dangerous, wouldn’t some like NASA inform people about it? Or would they mount an Armageddon like mission to save the earth without telling anyone? The more likely scenario is that the comet will pass us by, without a second glance.

Man Made Disaster

With the global terrorism situation the way it is, it isn’t that hard to believe that some psycho will do something violent on the said date. But no matter how substantial the damage is, no man made even could bring about an apocalypse this quickly, so man-made disasters are out.

Mother Nature

There is always a risk of some natural disaster on basically any given day. A case could be made for a possible natural disaster on 23rd September. Some natural disasters can be accurately predicted, others can’t be. That means that we have an early warning system about some natural disasters, so we can be prepared. And time will reveal the ones that can’t be predicted.

After looking at the information on the internet, you will come to the this conclusion as well – something catastrophic could happen on September the 23rd, just as it could happen on any other day, so we will just have to wait and see!

Samsung Decides to Revise the Smartphone rates after Drop in Quarterly Profits Category (tech) Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:50:06 +0000 Samsung revealed the financial report for the second quarter of the year last week. All eyes were on the profits of mobile division, which were not quite surprising and as per the speculations from the business analysts. The report suggested that the company’s mobile industry had witnessed a sudden drop as compared to the last year’s second quarter.


Comparing the numbers, the company’s profits dropped from $3.76 billion to $2.35 billion. According to company authorities, the main reasons behind such a sudden drop in the profits in a short span of one year included:

  • Decreasing number of sales of mid and low range mobile models
  • Increase marketing and advertisement expenditures
  • Failure in meeting the market demands of latest models like Galaxy S6 Edge Plus

This situation is certainly giving a hard time for the company stakeholders. But this might be a blessing in disguise for the general users as the company has predicted that the market will remain slow in the remaining quarters of the year 2015 and to cope up with the situation, the company is planning to revise the prices of its prominent models including the new Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

Another good news for the admirers of Samsung phones is that the company has decided to introduce a new phone, which will have a larger screen. Though the company hasn’t revealed whether this new model will be a modified form a previous model or a brand new one, but the experts suggest that it will most probably be a modified version of the latest S6 edge plus. Moreover, the company has also announced to reveal the brand new Galaxy note 5, which will have all-metal body.

Apart from the smart phones, the company is looking forward to introduce new models of tablets. However, the company is prepared for the negative growth in the tablet front, which it is experiencing continuously for the past few quarters.

Google Hangouts Goes Independent Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:15:17 +0000 Google Hangout was Google’s foremost communication platform. Before its launch Google had many other communication services, like Google messenger, but Hangout replaced all of them and became the tech giant’s only communication platform.


Hangouts offers users standard messaging feature, video chat, instant messaging and VoIP capabilities. Google has called Hangouts the future of its mobile related products; this is exactly why they have announced that Hangouts will have its very own website.

Before, users had to either go through Google+ or Gmail to access Hangouts, which was a bit tiresome, especially if you wanted to talk to someone immediately. The new website will cut down the access time and allow users to gain access to Hangouts instantly, so they can start chatting with friends without any elongated sign up routine.

The new website will enhance the functionality of Hangouts and the cross device communication it brings. You can visit and sign to your Hangouts directly. You will have access to all your contacts and your history of conversations.

The banner of the website consists of the three large buttons, which represent the main features of Hangouts. The best thing is that users can click on these buttons and access these features, without having to navigate anywhere else. And obviously, you can also access all the other services that Google offers, making Hangouts’ website just as convenient as all of Google’s other ventures.

The experts at Google have been preparing for this for a while. They released an update for Hangouts on iOS a month ago and on Android few weeks later. This revamp is probably an effort to make Hangouts the most popular communication platform on the web, an honor that belongs to one of Facebook’s communication services. But Hangouts still has a long way to go to take over Facebook’s messenger, but this new found independence will help it along nicely.

Driving Will Be Illegal By 2030 Tue, 11 Aug 2015 12:16:47 +0000 It may seem unreal; some even might consider it a rude statement about an old and loyal friend of humans, but it is the truth. Driving any kind of vehicle will be illegal in most of the developed world by 2030. With this, a century long relation with our very dear cars (and other vehicles) will come to an end. Why is this happening? The reason is pretty clear; millions of deaths on roads due to human error and also, the innovation in technology.


It is a very grim reality that road accidents cause 1.5 million deaths worldwide every year. This is more causalities than those caused by most fatal diseases combined.  Moreover the innovation in science and technology is at its peak. The successful experiments of self-driving cars by many countries have paved the way for their application in a wider scale. When this happens, this will be a phenomenal step for the wellbeing of human civilization.

The benefits of self-driving cars as compared to manual cars are overwhelming. Self-driving cars will not drive drunk, will not sleep while driving, will not try to take wrong turns, will not break traffic signals, will not drive over-speed and they won’t be distracted by phone calls and happenings in the surroundings. This will result in minimum human casualties on roads.

According to a recent survey report, autonomous cars have completed 1 million miles on road without any accident. This is equal to 40 rounds around the earth and if these rounds are without any accident, imagine how safe it would be when all the cars out there are autonomous.

There will be negative impact on economy when these cars are out on the roads; Millions of drivers and conductors will lose their jobs. But the reason to opt for the self-driving vehicles overweigh this issue.

Online Reviews and Changing Business Trends Tue, 04 Aug 2015 12:07:43 +0000 There are many instances where online reviews act as a deciding factor.  To go or not to go to a particular movie, a restaurant or vacations with family are a few examples. The users leave reviews that depict their experience in that particular business or event for good or bad. This popular trend gave Google and others search engines a bright idea; to separately manage different platform which would cater the ratings of any particular business on terms of their user reviews.


The following are few of the platforms that rate different businesses in accordance to the online reviews provided by users:

Google My Business

This platform was introduced for the small-scale local businesses. Though it is easy to open online startups at smaller scale, it is tough to be recognized. The ease provided through this application enabled the small-scale businesses to highlight their services that were completely missed out by tourists. The result was overwhelming; new businesses got wide online acclamation and the online reviews showed how they could be good alternatives to the cliché options.

Google listings

Google started to make automatically or randomly generated lists of local businesses. The ratings of these lists were then attained through the user reviews, which were posted online. It showed clearly what was likeable. The result was the ease for the people and especially the tourists who could pinpoint their desired destinations during the trips.

Google+ page

This platform was also very useful for the small-scale businesses to get their name on the option list of the customers. Apart from the online reviews, the added advantage of this platform was the directions provided by Google maps and the other necessary information that people needed to reach their location and have a good time.


Reviews on vacation sites are very helpful and highly appreciated by the touring individuals and families. It creates the ease for them to make up their mind while traveling to new locations. The reviews were shortlisted including all the useful information that can provide the true ratings for a particular place.

Enjoy Better Security with Microsoft Edge Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:12:29 +0000 Microsoft works harder than other operating systems, mainly because the popularity of their system attracts some nefarious online characters. They release updates after updates to keep their software secure, because without them Windows would be vulnerable to hacks.


Many users believe that the biggest vulnerability in the Microsoft Windows is the Internet Explorer, even though the developers at Microsoft have spent countless hours trying to make it more secure. Finally, they have come up with a perfect solution and gotten rid of the Internet Explorer altogether. Instead, they have introduced a new browser called Microsoft Edge.

More Secure

The biggest reason for the introduction of Edge was the lack security of the Internet Explorer. All the aspects of the explorer, which caused the security concerns, have been eliminated from the Edge. The easiest way into someone’s PC is via the browser, because it is a great target for inserting malware and Trojans.

One of the favorite attacks that hackers use to insert their own code into the browser is UAF (Use After Free), and Internet Explorer made it very simple for them to use this attack. The code they insert into the browser usually ends up crashing the applications, but sometime it also executes seamlessly, giving hackers access to sensitive information.

Microsoft Edge prevents insertion of such code and provides much better security to its users. The browser has been designed to look for these kinds of attacks specifically. It watches the memory blocks that may be freed during the browsing sessions and makes sure that no unwanted code makes its way into your system. If any harmful code does get into the browser, it will self-terminate as quickly as possible, so any possible damage to your system can be prevented.

This is just the tip of ice berg, when it comes to the security improvements in Microsoft Edge. Users will be able to experience the better security of this new browser soon enough – it is due to be launched at the end of July.
