The search transformation will even cover cases when a user interacts with Google, but without making use of an actual screen, For example, when they are in a living room, their car or any other place away from the computer screen. Also, the need for speakers and microphones that present the “OK Google” voice command may seem absent.

An assistant can be called ultimate only when they can do much more than carrying on a conversation, in fact being proactive is needed, which is where Google Now enters.

Google Now has proved of ample use which searches through the Gmail inbox to know about your habits, reservations, travel bookings and everything else about you that your email box contains. Google is believed to continue revamping or improving this platform and is even expected to open it up soon for developers.

The next generation of Google Search now aims at how third-party developers can fit-in the new information into their Knowledge Graph, meanwhile the concept of tricking Google algorithms to acquire better page ranks than the competitors will now seem little less significant. Well, it’s time now to change is what finally Google is telling out to users!

Products from the Gadget Front that managed to make heads turn in 2013

It’s that time of the year, which most of us anticipate for merry-making, celebrations and to vow for a new start. With just few days left for this year to end, it’s time now to come up with the best technological innovations for 2013. Every year many gadgets make to the screen, but just few out of these manage to catch an eye and create news. So, here is a quick list of gadgets that have acquired the place of being the most memorable gadgets for this year nearing its end.
This year many tablets, game consoles, smartphones, wearable, PCs, desktops and more managed to make an appearance, but what succeeded in creating an impression are the top products that defined ‘technology at its best’ for 2013. These are :
  1. At the number one place is the Chromecast from Google, that’s truly named as the gadget of 2013, its a little dongle, which boasts a rapidly growing arsenal for streaming services that are compatible. These services can transform an HDMI enabled set into a smart TV of today, which can be controlled by a mobile device.
  2. Another one on this list is the Moto X from Motorola that entails elements that most other smartphone manufacturers overlook. Most companies are focusing on enlarging displays, while Moto X brought for users ruggedness and reliable battery life. It’s a device created for customization and has truly made its makers proud, at least in its place of manufacture- U.S.A
  3. Google Glass- a not so popular device, which was released from a company that is popularly known for its software offerings. This small headset might have not managed to impress all, but in its tiny dimensions, the headset gave a glimpse of what the future might unfold. Even with its limited publicity, Google Glass has managed to grab imagination of users all over.
  4. Now it’s time for Apple, where 2013 was not amongst the most innovative and technology progressing years for the company, but it did made news with a super-sleek hardware for all. It’s with its iPad, which is a thin, sleek and light device from Apple. Great battery life, amazing performance and the A7 chip are the most talked about things, the iPad Air from Apple packs. The operating system too was a show stopper which is iOS 7.
  5. Now for the PlayStation 4 from Sony, this did not win the console wars, but managed to make heads turn. Not that ultimate gaming tool for gamers, but it still boasts a powerful machine and a revamped gamepad, all being sold at a pretty decent price.

For all those technology enthusiasts who still could not satiate their hunger for technology, the New Year is about to begin, which is bound to bring with it newer technology, better gadgets and an improved experience. So, keep counting!

New CEO at Microsoft- you might need to wait few more months!

Image Credit : http://www.newstimeafrica.com
'Microsoft to have a new CEO’, is news that has garnered the company many feedbacks. The new CEO would replace Steve Ballmer, the current leader, but the person who will do this has still not been finalized. It looks like the company has still not decided on this front and is postponing the name by maybe the early part of 2014. Initially, this was to happen before 2013 ended, but the company needs more time.

The company took into consideration 100 individuals who were somehow suitable for this post and after interviewing and talking with many finally came down to a list of 20. It consists of individuals who are all impressive in their own ways. The company is still work on the process of finalizing, ‘The One’ who would be the most deserving candidate for this position at Microsoft.

Finding an individual who can replace Ballmer is not easy, and it gets even tougher after knowing that Microsoft had just two CEOs in its history. As per news or you can even say rumors, the CEO at Ford, Alan Mullaly, is speculated to head this pack of 20 shortlisted individuals. Meanwhile, Mullaly confirmed to stay with Ford for the next year though.

Another expected name is of Steve Mollenkopf, who is Qualcomm COO, who says will take over as the CEO of Qualcomm on 4th of March. However, there are many other candidates whose names have not been released publicly and the company wishes to keep this secret a secret, for a little longer. Seeing how Ballmer fulfilled his roles and responsibilities, it’s like finding a needle in the haystack, for a person who can takeover Ballmer’s post at Microsoft, should be a distinct person.

Ballmer will be serving as CEO at Microsoft for 9 more months, before which the name will have to be finalized. So, rumors that will it be Stephen Elop, Nokia’s CEO or Alan Mullaly, Ford’s CEO, are still on. But, no one outside the Board at Microsoft is actually aware about the real name and it’s believed to become public in the early part of next year.

So, to actually know who will replace Ballmer as the new CEO of Microsoft, folks you would have to wait a little more. Till then you can keep the guessing game on!

How to ensure topnotch security for your Android phone?

This can happen with any person and at any time. Some of you might have already faced the same. We are discussing about your handset getting stolen or snatched by some stranger from outside. All this can happen and there is no way out. It’s not just the lost phone that can make you worried, but the sensitive information and data stored inside, which can prove of great help to criminals, if the same lands into wrong hands.

Thus, if you are an owner of a smartphone, which you bravely use while travelling or moving around on the street, there are some steps, which you should take to ensure data protection for your device and also to track and manage the phone, once it’s lost or gone. The wireless industry, on the other hand, is constantly working to confront phone theft episodes. So, here are few security tips, if you own an Android phone that can help in securing the data on your phone, if not the entire device!

Preventing data theft and hacking on your Android phone
The ways in which you can prevent data theft and hacking on your Android phone are:
·         Lock code which can entail any PIN from four to 17 digits in the form of a password can help. Make sure you use a combination of numbers, letters and special characters to make it difficult for anyone to track your password. But, this doesn’t end here as finger smudges on the display can help hacker in deciphering the unlock pattern, so develop a habit of wiping your phone’s screen often. The newer phones boast an improved feature, like the fingerprint scanner on the HTC One Max.
·         The Lock screen features like freedom to access missed calls and a preview of text messages you missed might seem great. But, try disabling this by going to the Security page in the Settings menu.
·         The Device Manager on Android is similar to ‘Find My iPhone app’ that gives you your phone’s access even after it’s stolen. You must always keep this feature activated by going to the Settings Menu on Google and choosing the option Android Device Manager there. You need to check boxes reading ‘locking’, ‘remotely locating’ and ‘phone resetting’ here.

What if a device is lost?
For locating a device that has lost, first sign in to Android Device Manager Website, which requires your Google ID and password. The list displaying all devices on your account will appear, clicking on each device will help you find its location on Google Maps. The device must be connected to a public Wi-Fi or a cellular network for this feature to work and to help you locate it.
You can next lock your phone by changing the lock mode or can set the phone to ring on its full volume nonstop for 5 minutes, or you can also choose to erase everything on your handset.  Android however does not have versions of Activation Lock, but you can easily find such features with third-party apps.

The final word
Like iOS, you cannot track a handset that is offline or switched off. Even if you send commands during this time, they are carried only when the phone reconnects. Also, when choosing to wipe off completely, tracking the device gets impossible. However, if somebody tries to swap the SIM card, you can detect your phone. Also, wiping microSD cards remotely is not possible; it’s available only for the internal memory of your phone. So, just be careful on what your phone’s memory card contains.

The good and bad

Android’s protection features are easy to use and attractive and the lock code option is great and missing on its competitors. However, adding onscreen messages and a mobile app, can make Android Device Manager pretty more equipped and more useful as well. Google needs to do something similar to the Activation Lock on Apple to make Android devices more protected and theft-protected and dataloss-proof.

Speaker and Mic: The new route of Virus Attacks on PCs


Computers without network can also become victims to threats! Surprised? But, it’s now a proven reality, where researchers have found proof of software that can help in PC communication via microphones and speakers that are built-in, even when there is no network connection.

Computer researchers have created a malware that can establish connections between devices, which are not actively connected with the network. This finding has raised a big question on the reliability of ‘air gap’ that is considered a reliable way to protect information and data.

New malware jumps protected ‘air gap’ barrier using audio signals

The scientists created a prototype malware, which makes use of inaudible audio signals to transmit data in small amounts over hidden channels, located within a distance of about 65 feet. This can happen via the in-built speakers and microphones. The distance can be further elevated by connecting a device network that can help in repeating signals. This proof-of-concept software, has thus suggested that an internet connection is not enough, and even without it a computer can experience threats from the outside world.

The research came after the unveiling of a mysterious malware, which made use of high-frequency signals to move from one non-connected device to another. The computer used for carrying out this test was Lenovo T400, and the primary aim was of creating software that can help with underwater communications.

The first version developed by the R&D division at Underwater Acoustics and Marine Geophysics was capable of transmitting 20 bits data per second up to 64.6 feet. For covering greater distances, an acoustical mesh network that connects nearby devices to the chain could be used. Even with the small rate of transmissions, researchers suggest and warn that hackers and cybercriminals can make the malware more powerful with Keyloggers that can help in recording sensitive information.

An example is the login details of the user who has been victimized. Acoustical communications are usually not considered, so this concept seems a little out of league. But, the findings are all real and something that can prevent this are using a host-based intrusion detection system that’s capable of analyzing audio signal.

Also, it must contain a low-pass filter that blocks high frequency signals and allows only signals of low frequency to pass.

Windows 8.1 leaves Mac OS X 10.9 behind in the race of desktop OS

The latest Operating System by Microsoft has taken over the OS industry by storm. It’s the ‘Windows 8.1’, which has taken over majority of the OS traffic that exists today.

As per stats, Windows 8.1 is the fifth most popular operating system for desktops, for details, stats below shows the same:

  • Windows 7- 46.64%
  • Windows XP- 31.22%
  • Windows 8- 6.66%
  • Windows Vista- 3.57%
  • Windows 8.1- 2.64%
  • Mac OS X 10.9- 2.42%
  • Mac OS X 10.8- 1.85%
  • Other OS – 4.98%
For the month of November, the latest operating system from Microsoft, Windows 8.1 snagged 2.64% traffic of all OS for desktop. The number was pretty better than what was seen in October, which was 1.72% and 0.87% in September.

This rise pushed Windows 8.1 just behind Windows Vista with a 3.7% share and ahead of the Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, which earned a 2.42% share.

The preview edition of Windows 8.1 was released in June, while the official launch took place in October. The upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 is free and the latter is an improved version of all its predecessors.

The share of traffic for Windows 8 began falling in November, when users started migrating to the successor OS. Combined, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 managed a market share of 9.3%. This was above Windows Vista, which managed a distant third place against Windows 7 and Windows XP on 1st and 2nd respectively.
For XP, meanwhile, the OS has been seen losing its charm since August 2012, when Windows 7 started dominating the OS screen. XP’s fan following still seems to remain, with this 12-year old OS remaining a popular choice among home and business users. Microsoft has announced cutting down support for XP in April 2014 though; let’s see what change this would bring on XP’s popularity and Microsoft’s users.
