How to Communicate your Neighbours using Wi-Fi

Your wireless network has a name (or SSID) that will show up on your neighbour’s computer and mobile phone. You can put the complaint message in your Wi-Fi name and your neighbours may see it when their device is scanning for available wireless names to connect to the Internet.

And unless you are the only house in that area with a router, your neighbours are less likely to figure out who is showing them that message. This is much like leaving a sticky note on your neighbour’s door anonymously.
Wireless names can also be used to share your contact information with neighbours.

BlackBerry Viber overhauls app to v2.3 coming in April 2013

Doing its best Kate Bush impression, Viber's letting its BlackBerry users know that something good is gonna happen. Specifically, that the company is bringing VoIP calls to the platform, currently pencilled in for arrival in April. It's laid the groundwork for the new feature with version 2.3 of the app for RIM phones, which refreshes the UI and adds support for Arabic and Spanish language users. After the break we've got a short clip of a demonstration of the forthcoming feature, which mercifully cuts out before the feedback loop deafens us all.

Create Amazing Music with your iPhone on iOS

Apple has cooked up an amazing opportunity with iOS, and music developers aren't letting the side down. There's an ocean of apps out there, and it doesn't matter if you're a virtuoso violinist or Bez from Happy Mondays - you'll find something that makes your jaw drop.

It's not just possible to perform on stage - you can also play melodies through emulations of world-famous hardware synths; jam on your guitar to the sound of classic stacks; record and manipulate vocals; sample and edit the world around you; tap out banging beats; put together tracks just as you would in a professional audio-editing package; export your efforts for all the world to see; and more.

The best place to start is with Apple's GarageBand for iOS (£2.99): its Smart Instruments will turn your butterfingers into the confident digits of an experienced musician. You can command swelling strings, pick out cool riffs on acoustic and electric guitars, get grooving on bass or jam on the keyboard.

The standard drum instrument is fun, too - you can bash out beats with your fingers on a virtual kit, or experiment with a large range of custom percussion.(For more information on how to get started with GarageBand, download our free guide on Newsstand.Budding drummers should also check out Drum Meister Grand (£1.49), where you can expand each of the four kits with funky extras such as cowbells. Pianist Pro (£2.49 for iPhone; £2.99 for iPad) reckons it sounds so realistic, even those who can tickle the ivories in real life will want to play it - so this is the place to whack out that tired (sorry, of course we mean jaunty) rendition of Chopsticks.

Slot an iPad into your existing setup and take advantage of this flexible paradigm with performance-focused controller apps such as Liine's Griid Pro (£17.49), which focuses on launching Ableton Live clips, and the intuitive, uniquely powerful Lemur (£34.99), which brings a piece of £1,700 hardware to your iOS device.

Digital DJing suites NI Traktor and Serato Scratch Live can be controlled by TrakPro DJ (£6.99) and MIDI-to for iPad (£5.49) respectively. If you'd like to take a step further and use your iPhone or iPad as the main mixing interface, algoriddim's djay (69p for iPhone/ iPod touch; £13.99 for iPad) is the one all the rest are trying to beat.

Connect two iOS devices running djay together with IK Multimedia's iRig Mix (which incorporates EQ knobs), and cue output and channel faders; or alternatively, buy a full hardware system including CDJ-style platters with the brand-new Numark iDJ Pro for iPad (£309) or iDJ3 for iPhone/iPod touch (£180). The cheaper iDJ Live (£79) provides an affordable gateway to the concept for beginners.

But DJing isn't the only method of performing with your iOS device - you can also play it as an instrument or effect on stage. Morph sounds from one timbre to another, note by note with MorphWiz (£6.99), create sonic mayhem with filter app Moog Filtatron (£5.49) or rub the screen to spit out diverse effects and lead lines with KORG iKaossilator (£6.99).

Microsoft Brings Game

Microsoft has put together a concept video showing off an immersive gaming setup where gameplay extends beyond the piddling confines of your TV.The IllumiRoom idea, which Microsoft patented late last year, basically turns your whole room into the gaming canvas using a Kinect for Windows camera coupled with a projector connected to the console as well as the TV.
The video shows bits and pieces of game debris shooting out of the screen and around the room, the idea being to put your peripheral vision to good use and generally give you a 'being there' vibe as you play.The company also insists that the effects shown are rendered in real time and are captured live - not special effects added in post processing, which gives us the impression that it's seriously serious about this one.

This full-room gaming hit the market alongside the next generation Xbox 720.It's part of Microsoft's Research division at the moment so the jury's out but imagine how good it would be coupled with Kinect's motion sensing prowess.

Now Windows Live Messenger Closing Forever

The CES 2013 hubbub please. Microsoft has announced the day that Windows Live Messenger will be put out to pasture.March 15 is the day to black out in your diary, as the company encourages those of us still steadfastly clinging on to Messenger to move over to relatively new kid on the block, Skype.

Microsoft didn't spunk $8 billion on Skype to let you carry on IMing in peace on a familiar bit of software you've been using for 13 years.Microsoft's Skype clients have had a bit of an overhaul, with a Windows 8 app and Windows Phone 8 preview version out now - Office 2013 has Skype baked-in as well.

But for the rest of the service's 100 million users, it's to Skype we go. Or Facebook Messenger. Or Google Chat. Or iMessage. Or BBM. Or Twitter.

Panasonic Brings New Ranges of LCD & LED TVs

Panasonic believes that its new LED /LCD TVs push the envelope in terms of form and functionality, as it announces no less than seven new ranges.The Japanese giant has extended its Smart Viera offering with new connected functionality, and is hoping that the likes of the new flagship WT60 series can be the centerpiece of our home.

There's nothing that will blow your mind - although the WT60 brings 2D-3D conversion, Clear Panel Pro and a new design which incorporates a camera for those awkward video calls.Next up is the DT60, which comes in 55 and 60-inches and the ET60 which offers up 50 and 55-inch. Below that are the E60, EM60, XM6 and B6 with the last two only offering 720p and 32 inch screens but the rest full HD 1080p.

The Panasonic 2013 Viera LED LCD HDTVs will apparently be available in the spring of 2013 and makes its debut at CES 2013.

Unboxing Nokia Lumia 920

Nokia must hardly be enjoying life after Symbian and it shows. The fact is that the Finns have nothing but Ashas and the most basic of S30 phones between the last Windows Phone flagship and the next. The PureView 808 was a flash of brilliance - like the N9 before it - but just that.But the Lumia 920 could be the difference between living with dignity and scratching a living on emerging markets.

The holiday season and the first months of 2013 are a make or break time for Nokia, and if those early reports of the phone being sold-out are anything to go by, the Lumia 920 already managed to get a few victories under its belt. It’s going to be a long campaign though and we're yet to see if the new flagship has what it takes to help Nokia get back where they want to be.

Key features

  •     Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support
  •     Quad-band 3G with 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support

  •     1.5GHz dual-core Krait CPU, Adreno 225 GPU, Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset, 1GB of RAM
  •     Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band
  •     GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS support
  •     Free lifetime voice-guided navigation

  •     Wireless charging with optional accessories
  •     Built-in accelerometer, gyroscope and proximity sensor
  •     Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
  •     microUSB port
  •     Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP and EDR, file transfers
  •     SNS integration
  •     Xbox Live integration and Xbox management
  •     NFC support
  •     Digital compass
  •     Nokia Music

Main Disadvantages

  •     App catalog falls short of Android and iOS
  •     No microSD card
  •     No FM radio
  •     No system-wide file manager
  •     No lockscreen shortcuts
  •     Size and weight something to definitely consider before you buy
  •     Audio output not worthy of a flagship
  •     Non user-replaceable battery 

A touchscreen that can be operated with gloves sounds exciting enough, but Nokia claims there's more to the new Lumia screen. There are promises of excellent brightness and outdoor visibility, as well as increased responsiveness and smoother scrolling.

AVAILABLE at Rs.40,000

Nvidia Project Shield For Game

Nvidia's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has announced a new handheld gaming device during the company's CES 2013 press conference.It looks more like a controller than anything else, although it does boast an integrated 5-inch multitouch screen.The device is "100 per cent Android" according to Huang, and the 4K-capable device is powered by Nvidia's also newly-announced Tegra 4 mobile chip, which boasts 4+1 ARM A15 cores as well as 72 graphics processors. It's the first time the A15 has been used in a quad-core system.

Multiplayer gaming is supported over Wi-Fi. The idea is that you can play cloud-based games from Google Play as well as apps from Nvidia's own TegraZone and even games from Steam - the idea being that Project Shield gives you a different dimension - primarily in terms of portability - for your existing Steam games.

We were shown several games in action on a 4K TV including Blood Sword: Sword of Ruin, and there were no pauses or other issues - Tegra 4 is one powerful processor.The new handheld also boasts a micro SD slot as well as an HDMI output and headphone jack. Huang added that the new device could stream media to the television and was the culmination of five years of work.

Tegra 4 consumes up to 45 percent less power than its predecessor, Tegra 3, in common use cases. And it enables up to 14 hours of HD video playback on phones.

27-inch Windows 8 Table PC From Lenovo

Lenovo came to CES aiming to do something different, or one can surmise that from the company's pre-official CES announcement for the IdeaCentre Horizon table PC, a 27-inch beast of an interpersonal computing machine.The flat-lying all-in-one PC is marketed as a multi-user, multi-touch, multi-mode device for the home that turns personal computing into "a shared experience - gather 'round the kitchen table to play and interact.
The table PC designed to get family, friends and whomever you want to game with playing on a touchscreen device.Horizon runs Windows 8 so naturally comes with 10-point multi-touch touch capability. Lenovo even threw in some pre-loaded, customized games from EA and Ubisoft to get game night cracking.

The beastiest of the table PC's specs, but it also packs a processor up to an Intel Core i7, Nvidia GeForce graphics and the screen is a respectable full HD with 1080p.


  • Considering its size, it's a mere 1.1-inches thick but weighs 17.8 pounds.
  • The Horizon does have a kickstand that takes it from horizontal to vertical and can be adjusted to view/play at different angles.
  • Lenovo is including an e-dice, four joysticks and strikers to get users playing on a digital monitor while physically interacting with the game at hand.

Lenovo Windows 8 table PC will start at approximately US$1,699.

There are actually some tricks that will help you maintain your battery life more effectively:- 

  • Have you settings set for optimum power saving. All smartphones have an option to blacken the screen when not in use. You can generally set the amount of time until it goes into this mode, and it will turn the screen back on if you get a call, text or unlock the screen. This makes a huge difference in how it holds a charge. 
  • Turn off unnecessary functions. WIFI and Bluetooth are both great features. But if you aren't using them, you will want to actually shut them off. This is because they will drain your battery life very quickly. Never leave them on unless you are using them right now. If possible, get apps that don't require connectivity to work.   
  • Don't leave your internet on. I have a tendency to leave the page up when I am surfing the web, while I do other things. Sometimes I go back to it in a few minutes, but sometimes I forget for long periods of time. I am sure I am not the only one with this bad habit. It chews through my battery like crazy, however.
  • Put it near a window. I place my phone on the window every night, and it actually helps it to maintain its battery life a little longer. At first I thought I was crazy, but after doing some research it turns out this is really the case. Just don't let it get too cold, or the insides can become brittle, or the screen can crack. Which means that freezer trick your drunk friend swore works? It is an easy way to lose your smartphone. 
  • Charge it! This is your best bet to make sure you always have a full battery. I have gotten into the habit of charging my phone every night, thanks to a conveniently placed dock that lets me keep my phone right next to me. When I go to bed, I see it and remember to charge my iPhone.


iOS, Android is Now kicks off From BBC

The BBC is only just getting round to producing an official Sport app, but the good news is that it's arrived for iOS and only a couple of weeks away from the Android platform.Currently looking a lot like the mobile site, the app nevertheless comes with some nifty features including customisable content and a handy fixtures calendar.But it will be the forthcoming functionality that will appeal most, with product manager Lucie McLean explaining to us that video and the ability to add your favourite teams to the navigation are imminent.

The BBC hopes that the app will be a must have download for sports fans following key events like next year's Commonwealth Games, the tennis at Wimbledon and, of course, next season's World Cup.

The BBC is mindful that Android users aren't especially pleased to be behind Apple users, but McLean explained the thinking behind the decision and what differentiates the app on the two platforms.Android we are trying to serve much more screen sizes - the main difference is that the navigation is on the left  it looks more Androidy.

We could have held and launched both together but that would have been quite dangerous launching two big products if there are issues.Users of popular 7-inch Android tablets Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7 will be delighted that their devices WILL be given some love, a priority for the Beeb's team after not getting the Olympics app out for the devices.The Olympics we had this beautiful app built and two weeks later the Nexus 7 came out," added McLean.

Google Removes Censorship Feature For Users In China

Google has quietly disabled a feature that notified users of its search service in China when a keyword had been censored by the Chinese government’s internet controls, according to censorship monitoring blog The blog reports that the change was made sometime between December 5 and December 8, 2012, with no official statement from Google to announce or explain its removal.

According to Google has also deleted a help article which explained how to use the 
feature which it says indicates that Google is self-censoring in this instance, rather than being blocked 
by the government (which has happened in the past). “Since the removal of the help article could only be done willingly by Google, the only explanation we see is that Google struck a deal with the Chinese government, giving in to considerable pressure to self-censor.The blog argues that the move “indicates a new development in the relationship between the Chinese government and Google.since Google previously and successfully fought government attempts to censor its censorship notification feature, not to mention implementing the feature in the first place.

Google Turns To offering free digital editions Magazines For Print Subscribers

If users can verify that they do indeed subscribe to the traditional tree-based edition, then they'll unlock the "free for print subscribers" option within the Play Store on their Android tablet or smartphone.The option only applies to selected magazines as it's at the publisher's discretion and is only available in the US at present with more countries rolling out soon.

Subscribers to TIME Magazine however, will need to insert their 11-digit subscriber number to gain access to the digital edition.Users will then be asked to complete their subscription, but will not be charged for it.Free magazines are only available on Android tablets and smartphones at the moment, although Google is hoping to bring the feature to the web-based Play Store in the future.

Review Dell Aivia Osmium keyboard

The Mad Catz STRIKE 7 keyboard are a bit of a guilty pleasure for this here reviewer, I am infinitely more pleased by simpler, more effective keyboard design.In fact, were it not for the fact I constantly mis-typed my passwords, I would still be using the plain black Das keyboard. Yes, the one with no key markings at all.

The Osmium is utterly retro, but with enough modern extras to make it relevant in today's crowded gaming peripherals market. Take away the sturdy wrist rest and the individual LED backlighting, and you'd be forgiven for thinking you were looking at a Dell keyboard from the early 90s.

The five colours indicate the different profiles, and you can access the macro and shortcut functionality via the GHOST macro engine software. You'll have to head to the Gigabyte website to dig out the utility, but it's less than a 12MB download so shouldn't tax your ISP restrictions too much.

As mentioned, you don't have to use the extra five 'G' keys as macros; you can mix and match between macro and shortcut as you see fit.It's all about how good the Osmium is in general PC use. I'm typing this review on the board right now and it's seriously making me consider tagging this in and replacing the Corsair K60 I've been typing on for the last six months. The non-slip coating on each Cherry Red MX key means you won't slip, and the 2mm actuation point on each key means you can be quite delicate with your key-presses and still retain your accuracy.

My only real issue is the fact that gaming keyboards now have to cost at least £100 before they can be taken seriously. But considering the K60 is still around £80, the awesome Mionix Zibal 60 is knocking around at £100 and the Mad Catz STRIKE 7 will cost you your first-born male child, the Osmium's price isn't that bad.

Android Turns To Glimpse Into Terrifying Parallel Universe

Googler Dan Morrill lacked icons for his internal Android presentation before the OS was announced in 2007, he whipped up four little bots to spice things up.His four mascots, made in Inkscape, provide a little look at what could have been had Google gone with these scary ADHD Teletubby Hypno-droids instead of the cool, calm Droid we know and love today.

Android had not yet launched; publicly, it was all rumors. We were working harder than you could possibly imagine on the initial announcement on 5 November and the SDK launch a week later.

My job was developer relations, but I took a much-needed break of a couple hours and spent some quality time with Inkscape to create these things.See, we were prepping for an internal developer launch (meaning, we were going to ask Googlers to start fooling with the APIs and give us early feedback), and I had no eye candy for the slides we were putting together. Hence these guys.

Review oF Huawei Ascend G330

Huawei had a big winner on its hands in the form of the Ascend G300, a phone launched back in the spring of 2012 exclusively through Vodafone in the UK.Arriving at just under £100 when bought alongside a PAYG SIM card, it offered a surprisingly well made phone with a decent 4" display.

It quickly gained a huge following among those looking for decent Android performance on a budget, replacing the Orange San Francisco as the top choice for those looking for a great combination of power, style and a price tag substantially less than today's high-end models.

Ascend G330. It's not an entirely new phone, but you get a faster, dual-core processor and a slight external redesign that dumps the G300's silvery style for a more traditional all black approach.It's still a nice, weighty little phone, with Huawei doing a good job of making a 4" display fit the hand well.

The display's a high point, though. It's bright and sharp and offers the same 480x800 resolution as the old Ascend G300. Icon text is pretty clean and crisp, plus it's perfectly usable outdoors if you stick the brightness up to full whack.Huawei's also beefed up the camera spec by a factor of two, adding a front-facing camera along the top edge of the G330.

The G330 also comes with a proximity sensor in the front to deactivate the display when you're on a call, plus a sensor to adjust the display's brightness automatically.Button and hole location is unchanged on the Ascend G330, so you won't require lengthy rehabilitation should you be upgrading. The 3.5mm jack and a nice, chunky, easily locatable power button are on the top edge with the USB connector on the bottom.

Android fans will be pleased to see a normal SIM slot and a micro-SD card hole beneath the G330's back cover, which is a relatively flimsy and bendy plastic affair.

Price is Not Revealed yet Now But Nearly Rs.11,000($212) Approx

Review oF Viewsonic VSD220

Touch technology has assimilated all manner of mobile devices. Phones, tablets and latterly laptops with tablet-convertible functionality, it's all powered touch technology

Enter the new Viewsonic VSD220. It's also a fully functional Android device complete with the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich revision of Google's operating system, wireless connectivity and 8GB of flash memory. And all for just £330. Sounds like a steal.

Much of that is down to the combination of the mediocre TI OMAP4 dual-core processor and the large 1,920 x 1,080 pixel grid. It makes for frequently sluggish performance and occasionally painful slowdowns.That applies to everything from demanding web content and third party apps to some of the native Google apps. Even Google Maps feels fairly reluctant.

But even with a more powerful processor, things wouldn't be perfect. For starters, Android Ice Cream Sandwich may not be ancient, but it does feel dated and unfinished.It also makes for an unsatisfactory browsing experience. Web pages that are capable of detecting mobile operating systems based on browser technology immediately assume you're viewing on a smartphone or tablet and serve up a dumbed down experience.

Admittedly most allow you to switch to the full desktop version. But even here, pages are scaled up as they would be on a tablet. In other words, despite 22-inch diagonal and generous resolution, web pages feel cramped and the scaled-up images are blurry.



For the most part, the Viewsonic VSD220 is a conventional 22-inch TN panel in the modern idiom. That means colours are rich and saturated and the overall image quality is good.It performs well enough in our test images, with little evidence of compression in either black or white scales.

Admittedly, IPS technology makes for better colour accuracy and viewing angles. And PVA panels have significantly deeper blacks. And by TN standards the pixel response is pretty ordinary.

But this is a pretty decent panel overall. HD video content looks lovely and games look great, too. The recessed bezel housing the optical touch kit doesn't detract from the experience, either. Just bear in mind that with the touch capability comes a glossy, somewhat reflective surface and, inevitably, dirty finger marks.

Aakash Tablet 3 Comes With Android & Linux platforms

The next edition of the low-cost Aakash tablet will have a SIM card slot, a faster processor, higher memory capacity, and will be able to function on both the android operating system and Linux.But IIT Bombay, which is spearheading the effort, would like to ensure that improved offerings don't result in a higher price for the tablet.

The tablet is available for students at subsidised rate of 1,130 while the government purchases it at 2,263. The initial plan is to roll out 50 lakh units of Aakash 3 tablet and a global tender is expected to put out in February. Members of the committee in charge of Aakash 3 indicated that they would like to access multiple vendors for the tablets instead of tying up such a large order with one or two vendors.

Earlier, the big players refused to participate in the project, now companies like Intel and others all want to be part of this low-cost tablet.

Another member of the Aakash team explained the lack of interest partly as concerns about the manner in which India's success with the low cost tablet would affect pricing,an IIT professor involved in the project explained, "today after the IIT Bombay-Government of India tablet we can spot changes in the tablet pricing.

Providing a SIM card slot is also on the cards for Aakash 3. "It could also have a SIM card slot so that people can use it as a communication device," Phatak said. Apart from Phatak,of IIT-Madras and his team and other partners are also involved in making the new Aakash 3.

As it is works of improving the tablet's offering, the Aakash team has its sights set on a larger goal ensuring that the tablets becomes a part of every students education experience. Though focused on higher education, Phatak and his team are also trying to get school children to use the tablets. "Our ultimate aim is to imbibe the usage of tablets in the education system and create an ecosystem for this. We have distributed Aakash tablets to 250 colleges across the country and asked them to come up with newer ways to use the device," said Phatak.Aakash team has its sights set on a larger goal-- ensuring that the tablets becomes a part of every students education experience.
