MicroSoft Windows 10


As we get nearer to mid of 2015 the much anticipated release date of Windows 10 is slowly approaching final launch. At first it will be offered free of charge for licensed users of Windows 7 and windows 8.1. It will as well come with a browser that will replace internet explorer. It is a complete evolution of Windows 8 and it will improve the experience of the user. As the launch is almost here, there is a bunch of hype associated with the release of Windows 10. It arrives with its bag of goodies to users like:

  • Faster and better experience
 This is attributed to the new features it will come packed with. The use of hybrid devices will be moved to a whole new level and are smarter as they will automatically understand how the user operates and make a virtual note of the same. The security has also been enhanced and Windows hello will be the new biometric authentication feature that requires more than just fingerprints. It will require the face and iris before allowing access to data.

  • Storage compression
The team has acted in a bunch of new algorithms related to compression of files. This will enable them to make system files relatively small without affecting their performance or changing their details. These features will available to all devices that will use windows 10. There will be also no demand to have a separate recovery part when it comes to resetting the system to factory settings.

  • Second chance for pirated Windows users
Microsoft will give users of non-legit windows to upgrade to the new windows experience without charging them. Still, the upgrade will not change the genuine state of the existing license.

The OS will be available in over 100 countries and in 111 languages during its launch. Lenovo will also be rendering them assistance at its service center in china by helping users upgrade to the new system. This move is set to help them fight off the development of a copycat operating system. The users will be able to get updates through windows update or an ISO image. Users will be required to pay a one off fee for an App and use it in all their devices at no additional charges. Cross buys will now be allowed by the developers. This will allow web Apps to be offered as a package of universal apps and distributed in the windows store.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 – The Epic Battle

On:→10:48:00 am With → Leave a Comment
Samsung Galaxy S6, iPhone 6


The 2015 Samsung flagship is a new beginning of sorts for the South Korean company – for it has ditched all the features and qualities the previous galaxy iterations were known for: plastic build, removable backs, and expandable storage. With dwindling net profits and increased competition from Xiaomi, OnePlus One and other Chinese manufacturers, Samsung was almost pushed to the brink of reinventing itself and coming up with something fresh. However, with the Galaxy S6, Samsung seems less bothered about its Chinese competition and keener on grabbing the Apple pie – which makes this versus encounter all the more relevant and interesting.

Design

As mentioned earlier, Samsung has ditched its plastic casing and adopted a more  Applesque’ approach with the latest Galaxy S line of phones. While the Galaxy S6 may look similar to previous Galaxy phones, the difference becomes tangible when the phone’s held in the palm. The rounded edges and a frame that’s 0.1 thinner than iPhone 6 at 6.8 mm are marvels that need to be palmed to truly cherish. The bezels are much thinner and also gone are the IP65 certifications from the S5, which not many really cared for, anyway.

Apple iPhone 6 has a unibody metal design which makes it more premium than the Galaxy S6, at least on paper. The new Galaxy phone, however, doesn’t take much inspiration from the latest iPhone, if the speaker dock is not to be considered. Its design seems heavily inspired by the iPhone 4, which also had a couple of glass panels held in place by a metal border.

Screen & Display

Like always, Samsung has sided with its Super AMOLED display technology. However, it has upped the ante in the pixel department this time around with its QHD layout (1440 x 2560), giving the phone the pixel density the market is currently craving for. Not to mention, the Galaxy S6 is among the first few phones to sport a Gorilla Glass 4 front and back – Corning’s latest generation of toughened smartphone screens.
Apple has very rarely paid attention to market trends and always dished out what it feels right; its 1334 x 750 retina display for the iPhone 6 is a proof. IPhone 6’s screen at 4.7 inches is bigger than previous iPhones, but it’s nowhere close to the FULL HD displays of modern smartphones. However, the display isn’t bad by any means and the resolution on offer is plenty enough, especially if you don’t compare it juxtaposed to the Galaxy S6.

Power & Storage

Owing to the overheating rumors, Samsung steered clear of Qualcomm chips for the first time and incorporated its in-house Exynos 7420 chip for the Galaxy S6, which is similar to the ditched Snapdragon 810 chip. It’s got the same quad-core GPU and 3 GB of LPDDR4 RAM most 2015 Android flagships have. Unlike previous Samsung models, there are no expandable storage options with the Galaxy S6. But with the base model starting at 32 GB storage capacity and the higher capacities ascending into 64 and 128 GB territory, there’s little video and app junkies can feel annoyed about. The battery capacity at 2600 mAh is below the 2800 mAh from last year and can be a big concern for road warriors, especially with the extra power needed to keep the phone’s pixel-rich screen in play.

IPhone 6, on the contrary, has stuck to its 64-bit dual-core A8 CPU clocked at 1.4GHz. There’s 1 GB LPDDR3 RAM and the storage capacities on offer are 16, 64, and 128 GB. The raw power of this iPhone may seem measly on an Android device but it’s apparently sufficient enough for iOS to sail smoothly enough. According to Apple, the iPhone 6 is much zippier and snappier than most Android flagships. On the battery front, the iPhone 6’s 1810 mAh battery isn’t special and can barely manage to power up a day of light to medium usage.

Camera

Samsung has stuck to the megapixel race, unlike Apple, with its 16-megapixel rear-mounted lens. It’s got a 5MP shooter at the front for some high-quality selfies. Anyway, does Samsung’s offering top the camera phone battle, especially when compared to other Android bigwigs? Yes, it does! It, in fact, it’s one of those few Android smartphone cameras that give the iPhone camera a run for its money. Its new f/1.9 captures more light and offers far better low-light pictures.

Apple sticks to its roots with the 8MP Sony sensors, with some configuration tweaks for optimized performance. There’s the rather unusable 1.2MP sensor at the front. When it comes to smartphone cameras, Apple iPhones have always topped the charts. But, it’s time Apple brings something new to the table as the competition that was once trailing far behind in terms of image quality is inching dangerously closer. In fact, the low-light performance on the Galaxy S6 is better than that of the iPhone 6.

Conclusion

The Galaxy S6 hasn’t reached out to the general consumer in full flow yet. But from the looks of it, it seems the Korean company has broken its slumber and delivered a beast of a smartphone that Apple and other smartphone OEMs must stand up and take notice. With the lukewarm press response to the recently launched HTC One M9 and LG G4 rumored to stay plastic, Samsung Galaxy S6 is perhaps well on its way to become the best smartphone of 2015 and Samsung's best yet.

Why We Love paperless office (And You Should, Too!)

On:→4:33:00 pm With → Leave a Comment

The Paperless Office: Future That’s Already Here


The office of the future is already here. There are no hover cars in the parking lot and only a few of the more eclectic IT workers are wearing silver jumpsuits, but these things have never been the definition of the vision. Ask anyone what they see in the office of the future and they'll first tell you what they don’t see: Paper. Right now, at this very moment, we have everything we need to create the paperless office.


Electronic documents, Paperless Office


Yet virtually every office in the world today still uses more paper than is necessary. That’s not because they’re out of touch with reality – it’s because they’re out of touch with each other. Even if an office goes entirely electronic, its workers still have to deal with other offices that haven’t. It’s a transition that will take a dedicated effort over a period of time, but it is possible today, and there are some important reasons to bring about the revolution.

First, there’s efficiency. Electronic documents are more easily created, more easily edited, and more easily accessed from off-site locations. Documents stored in a single central location can be accessed by every employee in a relative instant. Relative, that is, when you compare the time it would take to electronically search without leaving your workspace with the time it would take to physically locate its paper-based counterpart.

This efficiency is found in the form of an Electronic Document Management Systems (EDMS) – the core component of a secure and efficient office with an electronic workflow and a reliable, off-site backup system. Combined with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and data capturing software for the creation of searchable electronic documents from existing paper records, your office will have everything it needs to operate in a paperless business environment.

At least, it will have everything it needs to operate in a paperless in-house business environment; however, as you continue your transition from paper-based records, you’ll find that even the stingiest of colleagues and clients can be convinced to work via electronic documentation. Not only does this help to move the business world towards its paperless ideal, but it also allows your company to work with clients more efficiently than slower, paper-based competitors.

Another source of efficiency is found – or not found – in lost and misfiled documents. In a study conducted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers, referenced here by the Laserfiche Institute, these amount to 7.5% and 3% of all documents, respectively. In an EDMS environment, documents aren’t just automatically sorted and stored, they’re also securely backed up and easily searchable.

The same study goes on to note that companies spend an average of $20 inlabor to file a document, $120 in labor to find a misfiled document, and $220 in labor to reproduce a lost document. The cost associated with paper-based documents exponentially increases with volume, and exponentially increasing costs are not sound business decisions – especially when there are extremely conservative alternatives.

The savings can even be taken as far as the conservation of office space. If the typical office document averages approximately 50KB of disc space, a relatively small, relatively inexpensive 100GB hard drive can store around 2 million documents. That’s the equivalent of 200, 4-drawer file cabinets in a 2.5-inch notebook hard drive.

Depending on whom you talk to, this is all beside the point. The global end-goal of the universal paper office is found in the environmental savings. For every 10 million sheets of paper that are saved each year - approximately the amount generated by 1,000 office workers - we can save 2,500 trees per year.

That's 2.5 trees per worker per year, and 100 trees per worker over a 40-year career. According to Nalini Nadkarni of The Evergreen State College in Washington, the Earth currently supports about 61 trees per person. As you can see, paperless offices can help to turn the tables for our shrinking forests.

The reality is that everyone can win in the world of the paperless office. Even companies that must focus on the bottom line above every other concern are finding that electronic document management is the smarter, faster, cheaper way to conduct business. There’s no need for concession on either
side of the environmental aspect in a conversation about the paperless office.

We're still a long ways off. There's still a great deal of work to be done, and most professionals still find themselves having to deal with paper in the day-to-day affairs of their business. Yet until everyone achieves the paperless office, there are still alternatives that can reduce costs while benefiting the environment.

Until paper disappears from the world of business, green printing is a real solution to a real problem. “On demand” printing can reduce excess costs, and recyclable materials can virtually eliminate the environmental footprint of waste produced by business.

By using environmentally friendly printing practices and paper stocks produced by manufacturers that comply with the sustainable International Standards of Environmental Management (ISO4001), we can help to keep the world on track as we traverse the gap between technological achievement and practical adaptation. Sound business thinking, progressive policies and practical management are the tools that will usher us into the age of the paperless office.

The Apple iWatch 2015


Apple will soon be coming out with the iWatch. This watch does a whole lot more than tell the time. The big news is, it comes in three standard versions: regular, Sport, and Edition compatible with iPhone 5 and later. Some think it's worth it, but others are wondering what all of the hype is about.

Pros

Health:
The watch has a barometer which measures the altitude and atmospheric pressure and can be used to predict the weather. It also has an accelerometer, and paired up they can track elevation and steps for accurate tracking.

The Screen:
The screen is made from sapphire crystal, a material that is more durable than glass or any screen protector making it truly scratch resistant. The screen recognizes both light touches and pressurized touches for different kinds of functions. The face is also customizable.

Vibration System:
The watch vibrates so that you can feel it on your wrist and uses different kind of vibrations for different kinds of functions.

Design:
Apple made sure that the watch wasn’t clunky or unattractive. The watch comes in three different styles like stainless steel, aluminum, and 18-karat gold, and there’s also many kind of straps that you can pair with it to give it the ultimate chic look.

Time:
Although the watch does more than tell time, it is really good at that basic watch function. It keeps time within 50 milliseconds of the global standard time. It’s also connected to your calendar and your contacts, so it displays time in a way that is personal and efficient to you.

Cons

Not a Standalone:
Unfortunately this watch is not a standalone. In order to utilize the watches potential, it must be connected to an iPhone. This isn’t a problem for those who do, but Apple has blocked out anybody not in the Apple world from purchasing this smart watch.

It’s Not waterproof:
The watch is not completely waterproof. It is splash and water resistant, but anything further could ruin your new iToy. The leather bands are not water resistant at all. This is a definite con because it makes the watch less competitive than other watches on the market.

Too Complicated:
The watch has a vast amount of control methods that can be confusing when you first start out. After a certain time, you’ll get used to turning off the screen when you wanted to switch back to home. Other watches do have a simpler and easier design.

Battery Life:
It’s quoted to have 18 hours of “normal use”, but the exact meaning of what that means is not entirely clear. At worst you’d have to charge it before the end of the day, which would be a huge con for Apple and another reason why it wouldn’t be very competitive in the market.

Not Too Different:

This is really a cool watch and Apple has certainly put a lot of time and thought into developing it, but it isn’t that different from other smart watches that are already available.

So is the Apple Watch going to be worth it? On April 10, you can decide for yourself.
