Nokia To Set-Up Its Server In November




Nokia has today said that it would set up its server in India in November to adhere to the country’s security issues.
"We are launching the server on November 5 in compliance with all the rules and regulation in the country...It is for hosting mail and ensuring that the government has access (to the data)," Nokia India Managing Director D. Shivakumar was quoted as saying.
Nokia’s move would probably force BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) also to set up its server in the country.
Indian government has been serious with regard to security issues and asked RIM to provide solution over the deeply encrypted data. The data, which is said to be highly completed, could be misused by militants to carry attacks on India. The data is also difficult to monitor because of its complication. Now RIM is being expected to set up its server in India to operate in India.
Nokia comes with announcement of setting up its server amidst the RIM’s security issues remaining unsolved.

Michael Jackson Biography|Songs|Dance|Lyrics



American superstar Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana, on August 29, 1958, and entertained audiences nearly his entire life. His father, Joe Jackson, had been a guitarist but was forced to give up his musical ambitions following his marriage to Katherine (Scruse). Together they prodded their growing family’s musical interests at home. By the early 1960s, the older boys Jackie, Tito and Jermaine had begun performing around the city; by 1964, Michael and Marlon had joined in.
A musical prodigy, Michael’s singing and dancing talents were amazingly mature, and he soon became the dominant voice and focus of The Jackson 5. An opening act for such soul groups as the O-Jays and James Brown, it was Gladys Knight (not Diana Ross) who officially brought the group to Berry Gordy’s attention, and by 1969, the boys were producing back-to-back chart-busting hits as Motown artists (“I Want You Back,” “ABC,” “Never Can Say Goodbye,” “Got to Be There,” etc.). As a product of the 1970s, the boys emerged as one of the most accomplished black pop/soul vocal groups in music history, successfully evolving from a group like The Temptations to a disco phenomenon.
Solo success for Michael was inevitable, and by the 1980s, he had become infinitely more popular than his brotherly group. Record sales consistently orbited, culminating in the biggest-selling album of all time, “Thriller” in 1982. A TV natural, he ventured rather uneasily into films, such as playing the Scarecrow in The Wiz (1978), but had much better luck with elaborate music videos.
In the 1990s, the downside as an 1980s pop phenomenon began to rear itself. Michael grew terribly child-like and introverted by his peerless celebrity. A rather timorous, androgynous figure to begin with, his physical appearance began to change drastically, and his behavior grew alarmingly bizarre, making him a consistent target for scandal-making, despite his numerous charitable acts. Two brief marriages — one to Elvis Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley — were forged and two children produced by his second wife during that time, but the purposes behind them appeared image-oriented. Despite it all, Michael Jackson’s passion and artistry as a singer, dancer, writer and businessman are unparalleled, and it is these prodigious talents that will ultimately prevail over the extremely negative aspects of his seriously troubled adult life.
For it all to end on June 25, 2009, with his sudden death at age 50 of a drug-induced cardiac arrest, just as he was coming out of a four-year reclusive period and rehearsing for a sold-out London concert “comeback” in July, seems uncommonly cruel and tragic. Millions upon millions of dedicated fans will remember where they were “the day Michael died”.

Sam encouraged by Mame display




Loan star Mame Biram Diouf stole the show as Rovers safely progressed through to Saturday's Carling Cup 3rd round draw courtesy of a 3-1 win over Norwich City on Wednesday evening.

Striker Diouf, on a season-long loan from Manchester United, bagged all three of Rovers goals on his first start for the club on a comfortable evening.

"I know he's only here for one season because he's a Manchester United player but he is with him, but it is pleasing," Sam Allardyce told Radio Rovers post-match.
"I've been lucky to persuade Sir Alex to let us have him so now I hope he can take this into the Premier League because it isn't as easy to do what he's done against Norwich in the Premier League of course but the encouraging thing was his in the box movement.

"His in the box movement was excellent and I think that in the end that is why he scored a hat-trick because you saw what he did was what no other player does here at Blackburn Rovers, when a crowded area is there he finds the space and drifts into it, and he generally does this by pulling away from the ball.

"He did this for the first goal, he pulls out of the way on the far post and then makes a run back in and knocks it in off Chris Samba's flick.

"And then the last goal he scores, he pulls away again, and it is a beautiful flighted ball from Morten and again it is wonderful night for him and a wonderful night for us."

Rovers are back in action at Ewood Park on Saturday in the 12:45pm kick-off against Arsenal. Tickets are on open sale,

Sardar And Maths.. Very Funny.. Enjoy

There is a group of 7 Sardars who plan to meet their old friend the President Dr. Zail Singh..

The Sardars decide to take a taxi.

The taxi driver takes them to Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The meter shows Rs. 28/-, so the taxi driver says, "You have to pay me Rs. 28/-."

Now, the Sardars have to share the cost among themselves and so they decide to divide the total (Rs. 28/-) by the number of people, i.e. 7.


This is how they do the calculation to arrive at the answer:
____
7| 28 = 13 ( 7 x 1 = 7, 7 x 3 = 21 ).
7
--
21
21
--
0
--

The driver is exceedingly happy upon receiving Rs. 13/- from each of the Sardars. He thanks them profusely and the feeling of happiness is writtern on his face as he leaves them and proceeds his way.

Seeing this, the Sardars feel that they may have made a mistake.

They decide to ask Zail Singh about it. After all, the fellow was the President of the nation!

They ask Zail Singh to check their calculation of the taxi fare.

Zail Singh ponders over the calculations and finally says, "See, I am not good at division. The process just boggles me but addition is something I am an expert at. Let us add all the amounts you guys gave to the taxi driver and check the result. This is how I do for those tax forms I get very often. The process is slow but is sure." The other sardars nod their heads (?) in appreciation.

The President writes as shown below and also explains as he writes on:
13
13
13
13
13
13
13
--
28
--
i.e. 3+3+3+3+3+3+3= 21 and 21+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=28 so this checks out.

He then says, "Yes, it's correct. But I can also call my close friend and Finance man Banta Singh.

Banta Singh arrives, and when told of the problem, he replies that he doesn't think it is a bad deal but says, "No problem! I will verify it via mathematical computation. I'll verify it with multiplication. That is the best technique for this, you see!"

While others watch in admiration, Banta Singh goes on to write as shown:

13
x7
--- (7*3=21 ,7*1=7 so 21+7=28)
21
+ 7
--
28 This checks out as well.
--


Then he says, "This is really fine. There should be no problem, President Sahab. After all, it is correct in all the methods."

2011 Future Cars New Acura MDX



The first iteration of the Acura MDX–an SUV equally utilitarian and reliable–competed with the Mercedes-Benz ML and the Lexus RX300, but the newest generation of the MDX aims straight at the BMW X5 and the Porsche Cayenne. Cargo capacity and off-road capability are no longer the key metrics when contesting market share with those lithe Germans. To instill the same level of driving excitement in the MDX as is found in its new competitors, Acura’s engineers headed to Germany’s Nurburgring, which is prized for its ability to expose chinks in a car’s driving dynamics.

The new MDX’s exterior styling underwent a similarly rigorous workout. According to Frank Paluch, the chief engineer of both the original and second-generation MDX models, the goal was to provide a “stealth family package,” which the design team accomplished by lowering the visual center of the vehicle, what they call the C-line, and angling the D-pillar sharply forward to camouflage the third-row seating. Paluch adds, “The vehicle looks smaller, but it’s wider, longer, and lower.” Until we spend time behind the wheel, we cannot say if the MDX can hang with the fast crowd–but at least it’s wearing all the right clothes. Acura is being coy about powertrain performance, but Paluch says they have aimed for best-in-class V-6 performance. When asked if that translates to 300 hp, he remarks, “that’s a difficult goal.”
Although the vehicle is only a concept and in fact has no interior or powertrain, we expect that Acura will retain 99 percent of its exterior styling for the production model, which goes on sale this fall.

2012 LAND ROVER LRX SUV: LAND ROVER IN A FWD AVATAR !







Land Rover had announced long ago that they will be coming out with a LRX Concept. Now we all agree that the concept car, to be launched in 2012(hopefully), is a looker.
JLR has now come out and added a new twist in the tale of the LRX – It will be available in a Front Wheel Drive (FWD) version, the first ever FWD in the company’s history!

Can you imagine a world where a Maruti Alto/ 800/ Hyundai Santro / Toyota Corolla come with an All drive version? Doesn’t sound right, does it? Yes, that’s exactly how it sounds when I heard that one of the best 4 wheel drive vehicles with some of the best capabilities for pure off roading are bringing out a recession road only version. But, honestly if you ask me this is a move that will reap dividends for the company in the future. Why? I’ll tell you soon enough but first let me share details of the car to be.
Land Rover is reportedly looking to offer a more fuel-efficient product, a sign of the times, and the small LRX is a logical candidate for the FWD offering in the SUV maker’s lineup. The concept version of the LRX first saw the light at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show as a hybrid biodiesel-powered “cross-coupe.” The four-wheel-drive LRX will be out first and the FWD version will follow with a new name. Autocar in the U.K. are saying the Range Rover Compact is the most likely one. As for under the hood, the LRX was conceived as a 2.0 Litre Turbo Diesel hybrid with Bio diesel capability and the compact will also come with the same, being the LRX’s FWD twin.
As for economy, JLR said that the LRX will have fuel economy of 50 mpg, making it the most economical vehicle in its class. And with the compact, it can obviously rise. An electric version is also in the works and should be out by 2013.
Now, the question arises… why? I mentioned that this move will reap dividends. My reasoning is that the majority of people who buy these beasts don’t go fox or deer hunting in the woods neither are they children of adventure driving up through unmapped territory without their GPS’s. They are urban big salaried office go-ers, or the famed soccer moms. And all these people would love to buy a ‘Land rover that costs 10-15k$ less than the AWD version and extract the 50mpg economy as well out of it, while retaining the class tag that they drive a Land Rover!
This allows JLR to once again, make a signature range out of the Range Rover and make it regal while relegating the soccer mommies, the supposedly eco friendly- Lexus driving corporates to the Compact LRX’s. And to add to it, since the U.G govt. gives tax rebates to those owning hybrids and electrics, a nasty electric Land rover would be the best. While it’s a departure from the legacy of AWD, this as a marketing strategy is something that will hopefully fire for JLR and make the Range Rover an outdoorsy palace, once again.

NEXT-GEN HONDA CIVIC SPIED


Earlier on Indiancarsbikes we reported about the new generation, ninth to be precise , Honda Civic. Which will be headed towards Indian shores after its launch by 2012. Now, we’ve got hold of some spy shots of the new car that were taken on German roads a few days back.
Although the car is heavily disguised, we can still make out the steeply raked windshield from the 8th-gen Civic. Proportions of the car compared to the old one cannot be judged from the picture. One design tweak is certainly the omission of the quarter glass behind the A-pillar. Overall, you do get the impression of the Acura ZDX from the rear door-handles that have been moved up above the waistline.
Honda follows a strict 5 year redesign cycle for its Civic. That means, the ninth-generation would be due soon. Originally, the car was designed to be larger than the outgoing version, as has been the evolution throughout the past eight generations.Just as the final design for the next Civic was submitted, Ito called the project off, demanding the car be more compact and efficient. Just as the final design for the next Civic was submitted, CEO Takanobu Ito called the project off, demanding the car be more compact and efficient.

Rumor: The Droid Pro Is A Global Version Of Droid 2?


We've been hearing quite a bit of news about the upcoming Motorola Droid Pro recently, and now the latest rumor hints that the device will actually be a global version of the Droid 2, meaning that it'll sport a GSM/HSPA radio for global roaming. Considering that it's a world phone, you can expect to pay a bit more over the current $200 for the Droid 2 on contract for the luxury of being able to use your beloved phone overseas. If everything goes according to plan, we should be seeing the Droid Pro (or whatever Verizon decides to name it) appear sometime in the next few weeks.

Concept: Philips Fluid Smartphone With Flexible OLED Display




Flexible OLED displays seem to be allowing designers to exercise their imagination more when designing future phones, and that was probably the case with the Fluid smartphone concept design that was designed for Philips. The phone looks like a slim strap that can be wrapped around the wrist to become a bracelet for the fashion conscious, while still maintaining proper functionality thanks to the large flexible OLED display. Perhaps we'll all be sporting such bracelets/phones in the future.

Toshiba Brings Libretto W100 Dual-Screen Tablet to USA

Wax And Soap Could Help Create A Better Rechargeable Battery


Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are commonplace nowadays, and can be found in devices such as mobile phones, laptops, and various gadgets. The batteries that are used to power these devices often use an oxide of metal such as cobalt, nickel, or manganese, which does add to their cost. Now researchers are looking for alternatives to existing lithium-ion metal oxide batteries, and have discovered that wax and soap can help build electrodes that will allow battery developers to explore lower-priced alternatives to the lithium ion metal oxide batteries that are currently sold on the market. The process itself seems quite technical, but if everything works out hunky dory, perhaps we'll be looking at cheaper and longer lasting batteries in the near future.

BlackBerry 9670 simulator whets your appetite


The BlackBerry 9670 is not out officially just yet, but if you want to get a working glimpse of what BlackBerry OS 6 is all about, you can very well check out the 9670 simulator here. Also known as the Oxford (what next, Cambridge?), the BlackBerry 9670 will be equipped with a Pearl-style QWERTY keyboard, carrying a 5-megapixel camera and 4GB of internal memory. Apart from the confirmation that this runs on BlackBerry OS 6, all we want right now is an official release date as well as pricing details. Purists might shun this BlackBerry design as it comes in an unorthodox clamshell form factor, but those who are game for something new might think otherwise.

Dell Streak gets Android 2.1 update in the UK


For those of us living in the US, we have recently gotten hold of the Android-powered Dell Streak tablet, but our frineds living across the pond have had theirs for some time already. It makes perfect sense then for them to receive an update to the Android 1.6 operating system which it shipped with, bumping the Streak up to Android 2.1. This non-final update has been confirmed to come from Dell, and among the changes include an improved virtual keyboard and 720p video recording capability. Too bad the SIM-locked Dell Streak in the US will still lag behind with Android 1.6, and we look towards Dell to roll out a new version ASAP.

Gresso Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot for the uber rich only


Gresso is no stranger to the world of expensive cellphones, and this time they could very well have outdone themselves, especially with the Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot costing a cool $1 million. To justify its price, it will be made out of 180 grams of pure gold, where it will also be encrusted with 45.5k black diamonds and accompanied by an African Blackwood back panel. All keypad keys were made from a single manually polished and laser engraved crystal sapphire. Another reason on why the Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot is so expensive? The answer is simple, you're paying for exclusivity since only three of these will be made, ever. If you don't want to hit the "Jackpot", so to speak, you can always pick up the vanilla Luxor Las Vegas model for $20,000, sans black diamonds and a crystal sapphire keypad, of course. We do wonder whether this has anything to do with the Luxor hotel and casino...

Android GPS Navigation X-wing Style


Can't get enough of Star Wars? You're not the only one. Apparently Flash-developer Christopher Caleb decided to put some effort into coming up with an Adobe AIR-based app for Android, allowing you to use an authentic looking X-wing targeting computer on your device to navigate to your destination. You won't get all the frills of your standard GPS apps today such as maps, or points-of-interest, but you will be able to see your destination slowly approach in the trench as you inch closer to it. There are plenty of Star Wars sounds to keep you occupied and in the mood as well. Check out a video of this in action after the jump.

AT&T Launching Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 in August?



It looks like the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 will finally be hitting U.S soil soon as AT&T is gearing up to launch the Android 1.6 (1.6!) device with Sony Ericsson's custom tweaks. According to AT&T's system, the X10 should cost phone retailers $345 per device though it's unclear what the unsubsidized and subsidized prices will be. Launch date is said be between mid-August and mid-July.

When we played with it, we found the battery life to be quite low, and wished that the screen quality and touch sensitivity was better.

Sony Ericsson FH Concept Phone Can Flip Sideways


Concept phones always have some strange design, and this concept Sony Ericsson FH phone is no different. At a glance it looks like your run-of-the-mill flip phone, but when it's open, it can be rotated sideways to allow its dual displays to function as a single large display. The two parts of the phone can be separated to operate independently and will communicate with each other via Bluetooth.

Rumor: New Silicon Bumpers To be Launched By Apple


This is still very much a rumor at this point, so it's probably best to take it with a pinch of salt. According to the rumor, Apple is working on an all-silicone version of the iPhone 4 bumper, which is expected to be released after September. The rumor also claims that apple considered including the bumpers as part of the iPhone 4 package, but decided to ditch the idea at the last minute. That being said, considering that that Apple offers many color options for the bumper casings, it would be quite troublesome for Apple to include them in the package itself. Considering that the rumor claims that the new bumpers will be less expensive to produce, it's still unclear if Apple is planning to sell them at a lower cost.

BlackBerry Torch goes official, arrives via AT&T this August for $199.99


Research in Motion's latest smartphone, the slider BlackBerry Torch (also known as the BlackBerry 9800), will be arriving on AT&T and hitting the market this August 12th for $199.99 a pop if you decide to agree to a 2-year contract, of course. Needless to say, it will run on the new BlackBerry OS 6 while featuring specifications which will surely make it the most advanced BlackBerry to date. It will share the same resolution as its predecessor though for its 3.2" display - we're talking about 480 x 360 pixels. For the rest of the nitty gritty, head on to the extended post and enjoy the photo gallery. Of course, you can also check out our BlackBerry Torch hands-on to get a better idea on what the phone is like.

Porsche 928 breathes fire for a mean look


The classic 1982 Porsche 928 didn't really take off for Porsche fans, with just slightly more than 61,000 units produced over the years. For those who have one of these machines and want to add a touch of mean-ness to their ride might want to check out the implementation of a Boeing turbine engine which will shoot flames right out of the hood. Selling for $12,000 on eBay, this car comes with power steering and brakes, a CD player and a new paint job. We think that there should be a couple of fire extinguishers thrown in for good measure, just in case the situation heats up beyond your imagination.

New Meadowlands Stadium to offer instant replays


The recent World Cup in South Africa demonstrated the need for goal line technology to be introduced no thanks to contentious decisions by referees, notably the England vs Germany match that saw Frank Lampard's goal harshly ruled out. In fact, the replays were played over and over again after that in the stadium but the referee had already made his decision which cannot be retracted. Well, fans of American football will be pleased to know that instant replays during games are now possible at the New Meadowlands Stadium. Both New York Giants and New York Jets fans who attend a home game can download a free smartphone app which lets them watch instant replays, view statistics and live feeds of other games. Too bad this app will work only within the confines of the New Meadowlands Stadium.
