Cisco unveiled a tablet computer

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Networking giant Cisco unveiled a tablet computer for business professionals on Tuesday as technology rivals line up to compete with Apple's iPad.

The Cisco Cius, pronounced "see us," is powered by Google's open-source Android operating system and boasts eight hours of battery life.

Cisco said customer trials of the Cius would begin later this year and the device would be available in the first quarter of next year.

It weighs 1.15 pounds (0.52 kilograms), less than the iPad's 1.5 pounds (0.68 kgs), and has a seven-inch (17.8-centimeter) screen, smaller than the 9.7-inch (24.6-cm) screen on the Apple device.

Unlike the iPad, which does not have a camera, the Cius features two -- a front-mounted high-definition camera which allows for HD video streaming and real-time video, and a five-megapixel rear-facing camera.

The Cius also offers email, instant messaging, Web browsing through Wi-Fi and eventually 4G connectivity, and the ability to produce, edit and share content stored locally or on the Internet, Cisco said in a statement.

Cisco said the device was designed to provide workers with "the ability to access and share the content they need from any place on the network."

"This platform can transform how healthcare professionals advance patient care, how retailers deliver service experiences to consumers, or how universities deliver world-class education to their students," said Tony Bates, a Cisco senior vice president.

US computer giant Dell last month unveiled a tablet computer called the "Streak" which is also powered by Google's Android.

Apple said last week that it has sold more than three million iPads since the device went on sale on April 3.


Infosys To Reward Its Employees

Infosys going to achieve a huge milestone of its career. Yes its gonna be 30 year old company by this Jul 2 2010. This software giant is going to celebrate this occassion in a way which brings a happy news to its employees too..

To celebrate the occasion, the trustees of the Infy Employee Welfare Trust (an independent trust) have informed the company, that they have decided to distribute the corpus of the trust held in the form of equity shares to the beneficiaries (employees of Infosys Technologies and its subsidiaries).

This is applicable to all the employees who are on the payrolls of the company as of 31st march 2010. and who are not under the notice period and continue to be in the rolls of the company on the distribution date (around second week of August 2010) would be eligible for this distribution.


Misuse of Unique identity leads to punishment of 1Crore fine!

UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India ) has announced its way of punishing the culprits who commits the fraud in usage of this unique identity. This is the highest punishment as per the law

The Authority has proposed strict punishment for certain crimes related to attempts to damage the central database containing biometric information of people, with the highest punishment being Rs 1 crore in fine, coupled with a three-year jail term.

The draft law says that if any person "intentionally discloses, transmits, copies or otherwise disseminates any identity information collected in the course of enrollment or authentication to any person not authorized," he will be punished by imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years or with a fine which may extend to Rs 10,000. In the case of a company, the fine may extend to Rs 1 lakh.

Now the question is, if this unique identity is given to below middle class or even below that.. and if with out knowledge, any person disclosed his information and if the committee comes back and saying they are doing fraud, that would be totally injustise. Bcz they never asker for this process, Govt is throwing this process on to innocent poor public and imagine if they start collecting fines every now and then from different sections of people.

I strictly believe , keeping in mind the population of our nation and different sections of people , they need to come up with different mode of punishment. Even Governing bodies doesnt have such a big fine for the fraud they are commiting and this is totally bad to thrown such huge punishments on to public.

Intitially there gonna be lots of hicups in this process of assinging identity and usage of identity. And if they bring in their law of punishing the people for misusing the card , i think its not gonna work out...

Any ways The Authority has also sought suggestions from the public on the bill, saying, "Comments and suggestions may be sent to lawresponse@uidai.Gov.In or to the UIDAI office addressed to Deepika Mittal, Assistant Director General, Unique Identification Authority of India, 3rd Floor, Tower II, Jeevan Bharti Building, Connaught Circus, New Delhi-110001." The bill would become a law once it has been passed by both the Houses of the Parliament.
