iPhone 6 to Come With Solar Screen

Looks like the iPhone 6 rumours are in full swing now! Right after news of the iPhone 6 display already being finalised, comes news that the display will sport self-charging solar panel. Cool right? But no, don’t get excited already and read the complete news with a pinch of salt.
According to Matt Margolis, an analyst writing for Seeking Alpha, the next iPhone will come with a sapphire glass display which will be embedded with solar panels to charge the smartphone on the go. Multiple patents filed by Apple in the past year support his claim.
Early last year, Apple had filed a patent for solar panels in touch sensors. The company later unveiled the mystery stating that the touch panel came equipped with a power mamagement system that would use the power of the embedded solar panels to charge up the display. Considering the display is what uses maximum of your smartphone battery, a solar-powered display panel could considerably reduce the strain on your standard battery, helping the phone stay powered longer.
Apart from the solar panels, reports also state that the display will not be the regular glass display but instead a sapphire glass screen. The sapphire screen will definitely up the premium quotient and improve durability.
Apple is clearly leaning more towards innovations and the ‘wow’ factor rather than hard-core hardware improvements for the iPhones. Will it work? We shall let time tell. For now, our pans are full with salt-grains for all the Apple rumours! 

Could this be Microsoft’s breakthrough into the smart phone industry?
Microsoft incorporation has moved a step further to enhance its success in the smart industry by facilitating a merger with phone giant industry Nokia. Though there has  been a series of legal disputes including one from an Indian firm which was seeking to block the assimilation of Nokia, everything else has flowed well and it may be one big boost to both companies.
Looking at Microsoft’s success in the computer industry especially with the widely used computer program-mes and operating systems, it may mark the beginning of a new era in the smart industry as Nokia has a great coverage in the whole globe and they command a large consumer market.
On the other hard Microsoft has been in the business for a long time and when the two come together we can vaguely predict what we can expect from both fields. It will also help as Nokia has always been trying to command the smart phone industry but with brands like Samsung and Apple selling much and coming up with new and so complicated devices daily it had been a rough ride for them.
Now the competition is stiff and we may never know what is next but it is obvious greater thing are already popping.

World’s Top 5 Richest Business Tycoons

NO.1 :CARLOS SLIM :Telecom, Mexico. Telecom tycoon who pounced on privatization of Mexico’s national telephone company in the 1990′s becomes world’s richest person for first time
NO.2: BILL GATES: Software visionary is now the world’s second-richest man. Net worth still up $13 billion in a year as Microsoft shares rose 50% in 12 months, value of investment vehicle Cascade swelled.
NO.3: WARREN BUFFET : America’s favorite investor up $10 billion in past 12 months on surging Berkshire Hathaway shares; says U.S. has survived economic “Pearl Harbor,” but warns recovery will be slow.
NO.4 : MUKESH AMBANI : Global ambitions: His Reliance Industries, already India’s most valuable company, recently bid $2 billion for 65% stake in troubled Canadian oil sands outfit Value Creations. Firm’s $14.5 billion offer to buy bankrupt petrochemicals maker LyondellBasell was rejected.
NO.5 : LAKSHMI MITTAL : London’s richest resident oversees ArcelorMittal, world’s largest steel maker. Net profits fell 75% in 2009. Mittal took 12% pay cut but improved outlook pushed stock up one-third in past year.


The world’s largest search engine Google has reported a massive shoot of profits in the fourth quarter of the ended year.  Google reported that their profits shot up by 17 per cent compared to the one recorded in 2012. The company credited this success to their strong advertising revenue which have surpassed rivals Facebook and  Yahoo.
Google earlier sold Motorola which they had acquired just two years ago to Chinese phone electronic giants Lenovo. In a report regarding the sale of Motorola they said that the company had recorded a loss of $384 million in the past year which more than double compared to the $152 million which it recorded in the 2012. The sale of Motorola was welcomed well in the stock market as Google shares immediately shot up. Lenovo acquired Motorola at a cost of $2.91 billion in what comes as its bid to try to breakthrough into the western market of America.
The sale of Motorola had come as a surprise move from Google but as it has emerged it was one well calculated move as the company (Motorola) has been viewed as the dragging element in the Google company. It has therefore been hindering the rise of Google shares in the stock market.
Google in a report said that Motorola would be better when served by Lenovo. Lenovo will be able to compete with rivals Samsung, Apple and Huawei in the market as it establishes its expanding business venture to the west.

ISRO joins the elite club: GSLV D-5 successful

It was a quite euphoric rush of emotions at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota on Sunday evening after the successful launch of GSLV D-5. The GSLV D-5 carrying communication satellite GSAT-14 lifted  off from the ISRO's Sriharikota port at 4:18 pm.
After overcoming several hurdles, ISRO's attempt to establish credibility in launching India's communication satellite has finally succeeded. With this, India joins the list of space-faring nations United States, Russia, France, Japan and China who have seen success with indigenous cryogenic engines.

"Not many countries have mastered this complex technology. We have qualified the cryogenic engine. It's a milestone," said K Radhakrishnan, Chairman, ISRO. Indian Space research organization was under huge pressure to develop its own engine as the ISRO had already used six out of seven cryogenic engines that India had bought from Russia. However the officials were very confident of launching this successfully.

"I'm proud to say that ISRO has done it. The Indian cryogenic engine has performed as predicted as expected for this mission and injected precisely the GSAT 14 communication into the intended orbit. It is another major achievement for the GSLV programme and I would say it is an important day for science and tech in the country and space tech in the country," added K Radhakrishnan.

 In the past three years, India has seen two failures - in April and December 2010. Last year, the GSLV flight with an indigenous cryogenic engine was called off an hour before the lift after a leak in the liquid tank.

 This launch was very crucial for ISRO as the technology is extremely complex as the satellite uses liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen at -183 degree centigrade and -253 degree respectively. As it involves fuel usage at extreme low temperatures, it has posed a challenge to several countries, while only a few were able to master it.
