Twitter Stalking!?

Is the government stalking your Twitter account? It’s every government’s dream, a system that can predict future events such as riots, political upheaval and the outbreak of war. With social media playing such a prevalent role in the organisation of events like The Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street, there’s surely a way to trend upcoming events through social media, the U.S intelligence community believes this to be the case. Research aimed at predicting future social upheaval isn’t a new thought, automating the way data is collected and analysed is a little more complicated though. Foresight and Understanding from Scientific Exposition – FUSE – has been commissioned to do just that by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence – ODNI.  Today, the identification and assessment of emerging technical capabilities is a manual, time-consuming, domain-specific, and expert-intensive process. Analysts are in need of a reliable, automated, evidence-based capability that allows them to rapidly identify specific technical areas for in-depth review. B★C READ MORE


INDIA: $36 Tablet PC, Meet Aakash Tab

Posted: October 6th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on INDIA: $36 Tablet PC, Meet Aakash Tab

The Indian Government has unveiled a prototype of a touchscreen, tablet computer, the Aakash Tablet PC will go on sale for $36. As more data is migrated to the cloud simple web-enabled platforms such as tablet-pc’s will replace the bloated desktop and laptop hardware architectures of today, the future is apparently mobile. The Tablet PC has been launched as the world’s cheapest tablet computer, to be sold to students at the subsidised price of $36 and later in shops for about $61. Most of India’s 1.2 billion people are poor and products such as Apple iPad are beyond the reach even of many in the fast-growing middle class. The government is buying the first units of the lightweight touch-screen device, called Aakash, or “sky” in Hindi, for $51 each from a British company which is assembling the web-enabled devices in India. A pilot run of 100,000 units will be given to students for free, with the first 500 handed out at the launch to a mixed response. Aakash Tab supports video conferencing, has two USB ports and a three-hour battery life but some users said it was slow. India has a reputation for creating affordable products that are easy to use and sturdy enough to handle its rugged environment – from Tata Motors’ $2,000 Nano car to generic versions of pharmaceuticals. Right about now, Apple Inc has to be sat in a corner sweating, wondering what it can cut off iPad, a $600 Tab now sounds far fetched? B★C READ MORE

The marriage of Nissan and Renault has seen the pair produce some pretty nifty crossover designs, this however has to take the cake. Nissan in it’s effort to stay ahead of the current dullness out there in the motoring world is building two Juke-R concept cars. The tiny pocket rockets will be kitted with an all-wheel-drive drive-train and a heart stopping 480 bhp 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, the same motor hiding inside the Nissan GT-R supercar, ouch. The ubercompact Juke crossover has been a sales smash hit thoughout Europe where more than 100,000 units have been sold in the first twelve months. The performance of the tiny super-city car is not yet known, but given the horsepower and dimensions of the vehicle, it will no doubt be one of the fastest accelerating roadcars in existence.The cars are being built by RML for Nissan Technical Centre for Europe (NTC-E) with a view to testing the public’s reaction to a seriously sporty Juke. CONSIDER IT TESTED! Juke-R is all I want for Christmas thanks! B★C READ MORE
