Rajan Anandan (Google Managing Director, India ) also said to the Financial Times,” noting competition from a Mumbai-listed Indian search start-up called JustDial. There are several battlegrounds where we are not winning local search is clearly the one where it’s most apparent, Strategically it [India] is very, very important.

Start Menu option coming in Windows 8.1

Published by:

Windows 8 Start

[ August 10, 2015 ]

Microsoft will provide an update for Windows RT next month will bring a variant of the Start menu to Windows RT 8.1, according to an FAQ posted to Microsoft’s website. Microsoft’s approach to the Windows RT update is similar to the company’s Windows Phone 7.8 update that provided a small subset of features to Windows Phone 7 users that were unable to upgrade to Windows Phone 8. In its Windows 10 FAQ, Microsoft poses the question that is on many people’s lips ‘What about Windows RT?’:

If you’re running Windows RT, your device won’t upgrade to Windows 10. We will have an update available in September 2015 that will improve the Start menu and lock screen. Check Windows Update on your Windows RT device to make sure it is ready to download the update when available.

According to WinBeta. Instead, Start menu will be “based upon the DirectUI Start Menu found in the early Windows 10 Technical Preview builds,” so its design and layout will be somewhat different.

Now run iOS apps in Windows

Published by:

Windows ios

[ August 07, 2015 ]

Microsoft announced a clever plan to break the cycle by making it a lot easier to bring iOS and Android apps to Windows 10. Windows Bridge is one of the four toolsets that Microsoft believes will help developers make or otherwise port apps to the Windows platform. Islandwood has four core components: Objective-C runtime, Objective-C compiler, iOS libraries, and Visual Studio integration. For now, the company is making only the Objective-C runtime and iOS libraries available as open source. Microsoft stresses that this is still very much a work-in-progress and some of the promised features are now available yet or are still very buggy. Using the bridge, developers will be able to port their iOS apps to both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Right now, they can only target the standard X86 and X64 architectures, but soon, the compiler will also support ARM (and with that, mobile devices). In the short term, Microsoft will ideally get a wider range of higher-quality apps, making it more likely that people will both choose Windows 10 and that they’ll spend more cash on the Windows Store.

[ August 06, 2015 ]

Google Fiber is coming to San Antonio, a move that will make the company’s speedy 1Gbps internet available to the city’s 1.4 million residents. Google Fiber has been rolling out slowly, and is only available in the Kansas City area, Provo, Utah, and Austin, Texas, right now. Google says it will begin the design phase for San Antonio soon. The confirmation that San Antonio will join a short list of so-called “Fiber cities” is nearly 18 months in the making and comes after disappointment that it had been passed over in the first round of announcements. Mark Strama (head of Google Fiber Texas) said – “The good news today is that Google Fiber is expanding to San Antonio. It’s a big milestone for Google Fiber and for San Antonio, I hope.” San Antonio’s people are in for a tough wait; Google is only now nearing the design phase of a daunting project that calls for over 4,000 miles offiber optic cable. With San Antonio’s addition, here’s what the current Fiber map looks like now and for the near future. In March, San Antonio city officials worked to clear the way for Google to enter town. Customers ofGoogle Fiber currently pay $70 a month, and $50 more for TV service. Google also offers slower, free internet for a one-time installation fee, which costs about $300.

A famous Secure Bitdefender Hacked !

Bitdefender Hacked

[ August 03, 2015 ]

One of the world’s leading anti-virus solutions vendor BitDefender has been hacked by a hacker going by the name of DetoxRansome. It appears that hackers made off with a “very limited” number of customer usernames and passwords, and is threatening to release the data publicly unless ransom demands are met. The issue affected roughly 1 percent of Bitdefender’s SMB customers, the company spokesperson said. Enterprise and consumer customers were not affected. The hackers have already exposed 250 BitDefender customer usernames and passwords as proof of the hacking. The criminals claim that the stolen logins were stored in the Amazon Elastic Web cloud in an unencrypted state. The issue was the result of human error. During an infrastructure increase, a single server was deployed with an outdated software package that had a known flaw, enabling the extraction of information, but not a full system compromise, said Catalin Cosoi, chief security strategist at Bitdefender.
