Is Engineering in CS/IT the Right Choice for You?

After Class XII, students often have to choose a discipline for their further studies, and one popular choice today is a B.Tech program in Computer Science/Information Technology (CS/IT). 
Though generally offered by Engineering Colleges/Institutes, a program in CS/IT is somewhat different from other Engineering programs, and there is evidence to suggest that some students take to IT much better than others. These students seem to have a “natural ability” for programming, an important element of any IT education program, while other students “have a hard time” with programming.

Samsung Galaxy Y Pocket S5300 : Close Kin of Galaxy Y

Samsung are back to basics and they say there's always room for one more in the low end. Especially one that doesn't take too much space. The Galaxy Pocket makes the Galaxy Mini look like it's on steroids and the Y series like a bunch of semi pros.
Life at the bottom of the food chain is far from enjoyable but it can be pretty exciting, and some creatures have figured out how to adapt. They're usually small, fast and good at mimicry. The Galaxy Pocket meets the size requirement, but we'll have to check about the speed. And no, no one will mistake it for a trimmed down S III but some feature phones may be fooled into getting too close.

Pirate Pay develops BitTorrent traffic blocker to stop piracy

The movie and music industries continue to complain about how much piracy is costing them. DRM doesn’t work as it is easily circumvented, and it seems big lawsuits don’t work either. The proof being The Pirate Bay still being online today.

Another solution has presented itself, however, and it comes in the form of a piece of technology from the Russian company Pirate Pay.

When Pirate Pay was developing traffic management solutions for ISPs a few years ago they came up with a system that managed to block BitTorrent traffic. It worked so effectively the company decided to focus on that bit of tech and developed it as an anti-piracy measure. So good was the solution, Microsoft’s Seed Financing Fund has invested $100,000, and both Walt Disney and Sony Pictures have used it to limit illegal downloads.

Pirate Pay is keeping the details of how their technology works a secret for good reason. All we know is that it floods BitTorrent clients with fake data meaning they disconnect before a download is complete. So even though illegal copies are freely available online, it’s very difficult to successfully download them.

It’s easy to see why such a system would be of great interest to the entertainment industry. With BitTorrent traffic blocked for specific files, it stops movies and music from being downloaded. The cost of doing this is thought to be between $12,000 and $50,000 depending on the scale of the blocking required.

As an example of a successful block, Pirate Pay point to the movie Vysotsky. Thanks to God, I am alive, which was released in Russian movie theaters last December. The company protected the movie for 30 days, during which 44,845 torrent downloads were blocked.

The question now is, can Pirate Pay scale up to protect every movie that is released and effectively end BitTorrent piracy? We also don’t know how effective the system actually is. For example, they may have blocked the movie mentioned above 44,845 times, but how many successful downloads were there?

Review: Micromax Funbook

In a market flooded with Android tablets, with increasingly competitive pricing, Micromax announced Funbook – an Android 4.0 tablet focused for 10-21 years olds with focus on education and entertainment, the two tenants that Micromax claims are primary for this age group.

SpecificationsMicromaxFunbook has decent specifications under the hood. 
Dual Mali 1.22 GHz Cortex A8 processor 
Latest version of Android for smartphones and tablets - Ice Cream Sandwich.
7-inch tablet has a 17.78cm multi-touch capacitive display. 
4GB internal storage can be expanded up to 32 GB with a memory card.  
The device allows HD video playback at 1080p and the HDMI output allows you to play your desired media content on external display at home.

Now for the negatives, although justifiable for the pricing and target audience it focusses on. The tablet includes a modest 2800 mAh battery. Interestingly, the tablet does not feature a rear camera, although includes a front-facing VGA camera for video calls et al.There is no SIM slot, so the only Internet connectivity is via WiFi or via the bundled Tata Photon USB dongle to provide additional 3G connectivity with free 1 GB of additional downloads for the first 2 months.

The device comes in two colors – Suave Silver and Brilliant Black – and the slim and sleek design with only a centimeter of thickness, is not only attractive, but also easier to carry and work in both landscape and portrait modes.
While many tout the low price or the feel-good fact that the device has been designed, developed, and manufactured in India (at a facility in Haridwar district) as the USP of MicromaxFunbook, I believe it is the content partnerships that Micromax has enabled for a unique experience.

The educational focus of Funbook comes from the fact that it packs in study material from kindergarten to entrance examinations via the Funbook’s E-learning app with content from leading publishers like Pearson, Everonn, GK Publishers, Scholarshub, Vidyalankar, Universal Tutorials, and more. Powered by Vriti, the app has more than 500 smart courses ranging from Class 1 to degree courses and preparatory material for engineering, medical, and MBA courses.

For entertainment, Micromax has partenered with big publishers and aggregators like Bollywood Hungama, Indiagames, BigFlix, and Zenga – a formidable lineup by any far measure. You could choose from over 4000 videos and 6000 songs with more added each day. Although, this is available unlimited for free just like games from Indiagames, BigFlix offers over 600 movies in 9 languages – Hindi, English, Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, Teluge, Malyalam, Marathi, Punjabi – and Zenga offers Live TV with over 48 channels to choose from, free for the first 30 days further which you’ll need to subscribe to them individually.

Final TakeFor just Rs. 6499, the MicromaxFunbook seamlessly brings everything from study material to games to a single platform packaged in a neat device that you can carry anywhere. While there are several other alternatives in the market at a sub-10K pricing, MicromaxFunbook impresses the most. With useful bundled content and well thought-out hardware compromises to lower the price, it is a highly recommended device for your school going kid or the Web surfing friend.

MicromaxFunbook can be purchased online from while Micromax works on an exhaustive distribution plan so that the device would be available at stores in both top-tier and middle-tier cities through the physical retail ecosystem as well.
