5 or 920

In couple of weeks, the two gigantic mobile companies came with two of their pawns into the 'smart' game. Apple launched most awaited iPhone 5 to increase it's market share and gain an edge over the nearby competitors like Samsung and Nokia. And Nokia revealed the smartest phone ever Lumia 920(and 820) to sustain in the smart marketing.

When Apple announces it's next phone in CES 2012 in January of this year, everybody startsed thinking about that. What consumers always think about WoW features. This time Apple easily missed that, except the fact that they have reduced weight by some x%, and increased the dimensions by some x%. The innovative implementations are almost none in iPhone5. While iPhone 4s came with siri, the most innovative at that time,which is a voice assistant.

Now Lumia 920 seems to be the smartest phone ever in the world. Nokia had failed to gain the market margin after Google's Android came into the market. While Nokia staying on the boring Symbion OS. And finally Nokia opened it's mind and accepted partnership with Microsoft and unleashed first windows mobile phone Lumia. And it has unique mobile operating system, unique GUI. And Nokia keep on working on the partnership with Microsoft and now it released with Windows flagship OS(windows phone 8). Ihone has unique features like, the most advanced mobile os iOS6. And Lumia has Windows phone 8, so literally the two gaints of the PC world are competing here with their mobile versions.

I've seen the keynotes of both the smartphones and I thought Nokia Lumia 920 has slight edge over iPhone 5. Because, the innovative features introduced by Nokia are truly amazing. City lenses is one of the feature, which is an upgrade to Nokia Maps that will show the labels (restaurant names) when you switch on your camera and zoom at any building. And 360 degree panaroma is another feature. And it came with Nokia pureview hd+ which is too good. And certainly they are replacement to SLRs. And Wireless charging, this was phenomenal. And Lumia got NFC(near field commuication) which iphone doesn't have and most of the apple wishers expected to have in the latest phone. And iphone 5 has upgraded their maps by including flyover( for 3d building), increased greaphics, improved siri and increase in screen size to 4in(which is smaller than 4.5 in lumia 920 screen).

India - Democracy - Bureaucracy

India a nation with strong Democracy. There has been a well-established democracy in India. This democracy is responsible for the happy and free-living of people in India. Now you people may get a doubt, what has happened to our democracy now. And what is the reason why I’m revolving around the term repeatedly? These would be answered automatically if you go through this article. One of the reasons why India fought for the freedom is to achieve democracy and to end bureaucracy. Before Independence India was run by bureaucrats. And the apex house sitting in Britain would make laws and rules based on the feedback and reports given by the bureaucrats administering India. Due to this Indians suffered a lot and there raised the zeal for self-rule. Moreover, the reports of bureaucrats would always be favoring the interests of Britain and they never bothered about the common people. So to represent the problems faced by the common man and also to solve them we adopted democracy after Indepe…

Atal Innovation Mission - Top 30 Ideas

There is no less of innovation in the young minds of India. To encourage that innovation, AIM (Atal Innovation Mission) has been set up under the NITI Ayog wing. And Atal Tinkering Labs are spread across the country to enable the innovation in the students. After many rounds, top 30 Ideas have been listed here.

Out of these 30 best ideas, a few caught my senses strongly.
Recycling wastewater from automobile garages We often give a water service for our bike/car monthly or weekly. We tend to saw how our vehicle got a new look after servicing. But, the students of  "Jnana Prabodhini Navnagar Vidyala, Nigdi, Pune, Maharashtra" thought something else. They are interested in the wastewater which can be recycled. What an Idea sir ji!
Smart Tap Just like how there is a measurement for electricity, mobile data that we are consuming, there will be a smart tap that measures water coming through that tap. The best part is that the tap also purifies the water. This idea came from the st…

Controlled water management in India

Proper management of water is important in every country and especially in populated countries like India. It is high time that we need to measure our water usage in our homes. Putting a SMART TAP at the water tank would be a necessity in the near future.  Imagine a digital and eco-friendly village. IOT ( internet of things ) is part of their daily life. And their smart tap is used to measure the water usage in the home. And it is connected to the IOT, continuously sends some data related to water flow and quality of water etc.. The smart tap also measures the water level based on the pressure at the tap. And gives you reminders about the water filling. The village officer can analyze the water usage of each house in that village and he can give some incentives/rewards to the less average water usage. In the other post, we have discussed the Aadhaar based dustbins, giving incentives to the villagers for cleanliness. The incentive-based schemes are not the first time to the Govt. or t…
