Suited for commuting and in field scenarios, the tablet offers virtually anywhere connectivity .The tablet serves lifestyle computing uses just as well as business tasks with its package of communications and entertainment features

Microsoft Surface isn’t the only Windows tablet you’re likely to see in October, not by a long shot. One of the first announced tablets is the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2, a reconceptualization of the original Android-based Think Pad Tablet.Unlike the two versions of Surface running Windows RT on a Tegra processor and Windows 8 on a full-fledged ultrabook-grade Intel Core i5 CPU, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 runs a full Windows 8 Professional OS, but does so on a next-gen Intel Atom processor.

Computer scientists have developed a technique to automatically allow one computer in a virtual network to monitor another for intrusions, viruses or anything else that could cause a computer to malfunction.

The technique has been dubbed “space travel” because it sends computer data to a world outside its home, and bridges the gap between computer hardware and software systems.

“Space travel might change the daily practice for many services offered virtually for cloud providers and data centers today, and as this technology becomes more popular in a few years, for the user at home on their desktop,” said Dr. Zhiquian Lin, the research team’s leader and an assistant professor of computer science in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.

As cloud computing is becoming more popular, new techniques to protect the systems must be developed. Since this type of computing is Internet-based, skilled computer specialists can control the main part of the system virtually — using software to emulate hardware.

Lin and his team programmed space travel to use existing code to gather information in a computer’s memory and automatically transfer it to a secure virtual machine — one that is isolated and protected from outside interference.

“You have an exact copy of the operating system of the computer inside the secure virtual machine that a hacker can’t compromise,” Lin said. “Using this machine, then the user or antivirus software can understand what’s happening with the space traveled computer setting off red flags if there is any intrusion.

Previously, software developer had to manually write such tools.

“With our technique, the tools already being used on the computer become part of the defense process,” he said.

The gap between virtualized computer hardware and software operating on top of it was first characterized by Drs. Peter Chen and Brian Noble, faculty members from the University of Michigan.

New IPOD’s by APPLE

Apple introduced not only the iPhone 5 last night but it also announced the new generation iPod Touch and iPod Nano. Here’s a quick look at the features of the new iPod devices.

IPOD NANO

First up is a completely redesigned iPod Nano. It features the same new lightning connector found on the iPhone 5 and is incredibly thin, at just 5.4mm. That is 38% thinner than previous models. It also features a 16:9 rectangular 2.5 inch screen, making it look like a miniature iPhone.

Wow now the world is changing its view from being specific to its own standards to a stage where things can be Interoperable.

Google has done the same thing by introducing  J2ObjC a tool which converts Java to Object C Language.

We already have many tools which can do the same job, but the special thing about this tool is that it is developed by GOOGLE.

3G is old…its all new LTE now!!

LTE (an initialism of Long Term Evolution), marketed as 4G LTE, is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals. It is based on the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies, increasing the capacity and speed using a different radio interface together with core network improvements. The standard is developed by the 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project).

CYMATICS

If  we could see sound  our world would be even more beautiful than we could imagine. It would be a world filled with shimmering holographic bubbles each displaying a kaleidoscopic pattern on its surface. To see sound is to open a new window onto our world, one that has been veiled in mystery until recently.

A sound bubble created by a violin sound…

ISRO awaits for Historic 100th mission

The Indian Space Research Organisation is prepared for its 100th mission on 9th September 2012 with the commercial launch of two foreign satellites from the spaceport of Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

ISRO plans to launch 720-kg SPOT-6 remote sensing satellite from France (built by ASTRIUM SAS) and a 15-kg Japanese spacecraft Protiers on board the home-grown Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C21) tomorrow, in a major milestone of sorts.

Nokia wants to create a mark in the market of Smartphones with its new range of phones LUMIA 920, 820 powered by WINDOWS 8 OS. However, did not reveal pricing or release dates for the new devices.

LUMIA 920

The Lumia 920 (left) features a 4.5-inch curved glass WXGA IPS LCD display that boasts what Nokia called PureMotion HD+, which the company said is “better than HD resolution.” That includes blur-free scrolling; “scroll through an email or webpage [and] the text stays crystal sharp.

Harlow claimed that the Lumia 920 is “the most innovative smartphone in the world.” She talked up Lumia 920’s camera, mapping technologies, and extra features like wireless charging. The device also support near-field communication (NFC).
