‘G’ stands for generation of mobile technology. First there was 1G for analog phones, then came 2G for digital phones and now we have 3G and 4G to our service. The two latter technologies are most mysterious ones.
Understanding the difference between 3G and 4G is the best way to decide which one is more suitable for you. Here are some key differences between the two,
Before the advent of 4G, 3G was considered to have provided the best speed because there was no other alternative, but 4G transmission speed is undoubtedly 5 times faster since 4G Technology does not depend on how the network has been implemented. 3G speed is amazing in GSM, but 4G offers 10 times faster speed on CDMA network, that is why it is getting popularity in India.
4G is also popular because of its transfer rate. It is ten times faster than 3G technology that makes people to switch from 3G to 4G. You can transfer your data in no time if your signals are strong. But this fast transfer rate is not possible on your 3G technology. For example, your computer network and third generation computer has the ability of transferring up to 2 megabits/second, which cannot be advanced or increased. 4G Technology with its advanced characteristics has the capability of transferring about 100 megabits/second. The rate of transfer data is the most specific difference between 3G and 4G technology.
As far as the network of the cell phone is concerned, cell phone users can enjoy data services and speech at the same time. Users can save their time while using multimedia and heavy games which takes longer time to download. 4G provides better internet connectivity and faster speed, which is not available in 3G. But, cell phone users in India might have to wait for a few months to feel the pulse of 4G technology.
3G and 4G technologies differ in terms of battery they consume. This is a fact that when you download anything on your phone with 4G technology, it takes less time in comparison to 3G technology, but 4G uses most of the battery power. So make sure your battery is charged completely before downloading any data.
You will notice that 3G technology is equipped with circuit switching network nodes and packet switching, but it does not mean it is superior to 4G because as it has only packet switching infrastructure. As far as the 3G and 4G bandwidth is concerned, it is same in both the technologies. Users will have more advantages using 4G because next time you receive any call from anyone, you can find out its IP address which is not possible in 3G network.
If you spend most of your time travelling in cars, railways or any public transport, 4G will provide you additional benefits of communication; because its data rate is 1 gigabit for walking & stationary users and 100 megabits for zigzag driving. 4G performance is far better than 3G Network anywhere as the quality and performance is specified by the ITU (International Telecommunication Union). So, next time you go anywhere in your car, you are not supposed to get worried about any data transfer or weak signals irrespective of what cell phone you are using.
What I love about 4G Technology making it more reliable and dependent is its unique feature of connectivity which is not influenced by any bad weather condition. Now, you can completely enjoy your communication freedom even when you are engulfed with harsh atmosphere around.
Users should not forget that all kinds of broadband technology, a sense of security weakness is associated which is not guaranteed by the service provider. Internet is such a place where latest and advanced technology is tested which makes the users vulnerable to pirates. 4G offers additional cover of security and confidentiality. This is one big difference between 3G and 4G technology for mobile phones.
Mobile phone users in India will have access to 4G technology in next few months as the Government of India is holding talks about auction process to distribute 4G spectrum that is held by the Defense Ministry. But, it will still take more time for 4G to reach all over India because 3G is yet to reach several Indian cities. 4G network will ease communication system in rural areas where network is always slow and weak. In addition to this, it will also provide better and faster internet services to mobile phones.
Amidst Facebook’s growing clout in the Social Networking Business, Google+ is desperately trying to win a losing battle. A promising new feature thrown in by Google is Google+ Hangout. Google+ Hangout is a completely new way for video conferencing and live chats. It allows you to invite your friends to a conference and a have a face-to-face conversation with as many as 10 of them.
Here’s how to get started with Google+ Hangout:
Login to your Google+ account.
Click on the “Start a Hangout” button in the right pane.
If you do not have the Google Talk and video plugins, you will be redirected to the download page. We found some glitches in the downloads, so it is better to do the same from this link : – http://www.google.com/tools/dlpage/res/talkvideo/hangouts/ .
After installing the plug-ins, reopen the Start hangout page.
You will now be taken to the Green Room and asked who you want to hang out with. Simply enter the circles you want to be notified about your starting a Hangout. Then click on “Hangout”.

If you have just completed your engineering or IT diploma, first question comes to your mind is what types of questions are asked during an interview! Here are magical tips to overcome unexpected nervousness and confusing atmosphere. Asking random questions and creating confusing environment for candidates during the interview is common, but as an IT candidate you should understand technical importance of this process.
IT companies cannot recruit new candidates blindly unless they know that they have the best mind and talent in the industry.
Here are some tips to understand the nature of common questions that’re often asked in IT job interview in India:
The nature of questions is further divided into two parts: written and oral form. As far as the written is concerned, you must pay attention to your grammatical problems, writing structure and how well you can present an idea. While facing oral interview, you must be soft, slow and clear in your communication. There is no use of speaking fast if the interviewers do not understand your idea or the information you provide. The more soft and slow you are in your communication, the more satisfied and relaxed you will be during the interview.
During recruitment process in Indian IT companies, candidates are also faced with unexpected questions which they did not read anywhere. Do not get angry, see around you and show any signs of uneasiness as the purpose of confusing questions is to see your humorous point of view. Do not get furious and try to make them smile with your answer as it can get you some positive points. But, here you have to use your own instinct and insight to answer because some confusing questions also require seriousness on the spot.
In job interviews in India, there are some questions you cannot think about with the help of your talent and insight unless you do some research or get information from different sources.
Get as much information about the organization as possible because all companies ask you why you want to join them. Be familiar with working environment, business and theological aspects of the organization. Get some information about market value and its performance. Study about its success story and the challenges if faced since the advent of establishment. You should make them feel that you are really interested in working with them.
The role you are applying for is also of great importance. Most of the IT candidates do not know about their roles that is why they are not able to convince the organization that the candidate will perform well. Each role in the organization requires some practical and theoretical responsibility, the more you know about your role, the better you will convey your idea.
IT Companies also ask about the candidates. Here they do not mean simple information like your name and family background. You are supposed to provide information about your web/software projects, positions you occupied, challenges you faced and how you succeeded. Information about you should be on your fingertips. During your interview process, you are supposed to make a balance between the job you are interested in and your qualification and performance.
As you’re applying in an IT company, you must be sound in technical knowledge. Usually not many technical questions are fired at candidates during interviews but it doesn’t mean you should not prepare for it. The interview panel does include guys from technical field, so you must be ready for it. In technical, basic but confusing questions are asked.
Last important point you should keep in mind is the interview timeline and how many rounds are there. You should prepare according to the round and timeline. Your answers should not be too lengthy and unfruitful. Simple, clear and informative answers in positive manners always work wonders. Be confident that you are the one for the job and prove your talent and skills.
Also remember, you cannot make yourself prepared and master overnight or in just one interview. I would like to suggest you that before applying with the organization you want to join, also apply with other companies just to boost your confidence level and overcome tense environment of the interview.

WordPress provides a simple interface to add menus and submenus.
Submenus are the list that appears when cursor is moved over a menu item. You’re seeing the same in CyberPassion (move cursor over menus).
To add submenu to a WordPress-powered site, follow our stepwise guide,
Now see your website, it’d be showing these menu items with submenus in the same order. Cheers!!!
WordPress 3.3.1 is available for some time now. As I was on moon with some urgent work, hence failed to update it. But soon after my return, I’ve finally updated my WordPress and the latest update looks quite interesting.
Its packed with great features with radical improvements in GUI, easing the work of bloggers with some really cool features. Though, I haven’t checked thoroughly but my 1st day experience with the latest update is quite amazing . So I brought forward my 5 best features of the new WordPress 3.3.1,
You can see the difference as soon as you reach your WordPress dashboard. Design sees amelioration with smooth navigation to most important functions like adding posts and media, checking plugin updates and more. Improved GUI hasn’t affected the performance, which is improved by a good margin.
If you’ve updated your WordPress recently, then you can feel the lightness of the new WordPress. Navigation is easy, pages load faster and things are best designed for bloggers ease. Previous releases had little GUI improvements but this time it’s a radical one.
This is by far the best feature (for me!). Now you can upload multiple files at once in WordPress. Not only this, you can drag and drop files to upload. My blogs usually includes lots of images, so my work has mow curtailed out by large. Previously, we either had to upload files individually or using a FTP program if files are in numbers. Both these ways are time taking and problematic. But new WordPress update has done things a lot simpler.
In Latest WordPress 3.3.1, navigation is something that’ll catch you attention. Now, you can see submenus by just moving cursor over the menu items. The same applies for the top bar, that now includes option for directly adding new post and media files, see comments and updates, visit website, check updates on wordpress.org for latest info and queries. And of course, an option to check your WordPress profile and log out. This is my third best feature just because of the way it simplifies GUI.
Oh yes, this one is a notable improvement. New GUI for WordPress see changes in the help section (that appears above every page). Now it better uses jQuery to provide soothing transition between help contents. Screen options got some improvements as well.
It might not be of great interest for most but yes, new WordPress allows editing of not only the plugin or stylesheet files but also of all WordPress files from admin panel only. Now you can increase excerpt length, control loop, add functions, and do lot more customization much easily.
We’ve all heard of the utterly useful batch files. Dreaded as they are, some batch file tricks can automate a lot of tasks and in the process, provide some really interesting (or annoying) scares and laughs.
In essence, a batch file offers all that you can achieve with the command line. In addition however, it also allows a couple more features; including the use of variables and the conditional statements (if-else). Here are a few batch file tricks:
The shutdown command when used within a batch file can perform a lot of powerful actions. If you feel shutting down your machine requires more clicks than necessary, you can create desktop shortcut for the same. Here are the various parameters available:
/s – shutdown
/h – hibernate
/r – restart
/a – abort a shutdown command
/p – shutdown without warnings
/t – specifies the time in seconds after with the machine shuts down. The default time for shutdown is 30 seconds
/m – shuts down a remote computer on the network
Write the following line in notepad and save it with name ‘shutdown.bat’. Whenever you open this ‘shutdown.bat’ file, windows will shutdown after 120 seconds.
(Also works when this code is directly entered in Command Prompt/cmd)
shutdown /s /t 120
The /m attribute allows you to shut down a machine on the network. This can serve as a clever way for spreading scare on a network. It is to be noted however that the target machine should support remote shutdown. Following code shutsdown a windows system(126.96.36.199) in network after 120 seconds.
shutdown /s /t 120 /m 188.8.131.52
To abort shutdown, use the following code and save it as ‘abort.bat’. But this code must be executed within time(120secs).
For this batch file trick, it is advisable to make two shortcuts one each for shutting down and for aborting an accidental command.
To check if its working fine, open your ‘shutdown.bat’ file and once countdown for shutdown starts, run ‘abort.bat’. Shutdown would stop.
Make a harmless virus for automatic shutdown
The commands given below create a small, harmless virus that forces the shutdown of the machine. The commands develop an infinite loop. The only way to stop the unfolding windows is to either find out the parent window and close it, or restart the machine.
:start start name.bat go to start
Here ‘name.bat’ is the name of the file you save these commands in(again, as ‘shutdown.bat’).
This simple loop opens the file and keeps repeating the operation due to the ‘go to start’. line.
And here is one cool batch file trick,
Run CMD and Regedit when blocked
If your administrator has blocked CMD and/or the Registry, here’s a way to circumvent it.
To write Hindi in Facebook, Twitter we need the help of apps. The same can be easily done with minimum effort by using online translation tools.
Here are 2 such tools for writing Hindi in Facebook (or any other social media site). Here are they,
Method 1: Use Microsoft’s online Indic Language Input tool
This is an online tool by Microsoft that allows conversion of English text to Hindi. You write Hindi sentences in English(like Hi kaisa hai tu?), the tool would keep on converting those in Hindi as you type. Here is how to use it,
Method 2: Use Google Translation tool to write Hindi
This works same as the Microsoft’s language tool but is considered as more accurate than the former and is available for more Indian languages.
Like the previous method, here you’ll see a box where you have to enter text for conversion. First make sure, Hindi is selected text on top left side.
Once done, copy and paste the Hindi text and post anywhere you want.
But if you don’t want the copy and paste stuff. You can download Microsoft’s Indic language software to your system, install it and write Hindi/Bengali/Kannada/Tamil etc fonts in documents.
To write Hindi in iPhone there is a cool app available. Using the app, one can write Hindi and post anywhere.
After Facebook profiles shifted to timeline, its now the turn of Facebook pages to get a redesign.
Yes, all Facebook pages would now soon be carted over to a new design. It’s optional now but it’ll be made mandatory after 30th March.
Admins can check their redesigned Facebook page before it gets mandatory. If they want, they can switch to the new design before 30th.
The new design is very similar to timeline where Info, Photos, Maps, Number of Likes are all shown at the top section. There is also a space for adding cover image, just like Facebook timeline has.
Also, Wall posts, comments, likes and shares are all distributed in different time-frames, to give pages a real life experience.
We’ve tried the new feature and this is how redesigned CyberPassion Facebook looks,
That wretched black window with a broken white font gives more scares than be of any use, right?…Wrong. Though not exactly user-friendly, the Command prompt can sometimes prove to be of help. First things first. How do you run cmd?
Press the ‘windows-key + r’ combination and type ‘cmd’ in the Run box. But what if the utility is blocked by the administrator? Here’s a workaround:
And you are done!
Here’s a short list of cmd commands that you might find useful :
assoc – A useful cmd trick. Used to associate file extensions to filetypes. For eg. the following will associate the fictional .gerrard file extension with the html file-type.
assoc .gerrard = htmlfile
Just type assoc file-extension to show current association with that extension.
move – Another very useful cmd command. What makes this simple command is the combination of wild cards. For eg. if you wanted to move all pdf files from one location to another, you could type:
move *.pdf e:\temp.
Note that if the any directory involved has a space in its name, it needs to be included within the double quotes. Also note that this command does not create a new folder, so the destination directory must already exist.
ping – used to check the health of the connection.
usage : ping www.google.com
tracert – traces the route taken by a packet of data to reach the destination machine
usage : tracert www.gmail.com
tree – displays the structure of the directory in a visual format. Use the /f attribute to also show the files.
usage : tree /f
find – Probably the most powerful cmd command. It searches for a specific string of text in one or more files. After searching the specified file or files, find displays any lines of text that contain the specified string.
eg. find /v “gerrard” new2.txt displays all lines of text in the file new2.txt that does not contain the string “gerrard”. The not operation is applied by the /v attribute.
The command can be made even more powerful by using the pipe (|) operator. Here’s how
To search your hard disk to find and display the file names on drive C: that contain the string “Google” use the pipe (|) to direct the results of a dir command to find as follows:
dir c:\ /s /b | find “Google”
Here are some more useful cmd tricks :
Your brand is your lifetime dream, so why not decide a name that suits it the best. Here are some important guidelines for selecting the right domain name for business.
For choosing the right domain name for business, you may issue a brainstorming session. Ask your employees and others to come up with new names.
Select best ones, and write down on a board. Then ask for suggestions on the selected ones, and finalize the best one in the end. Deciding it by yourself is a bit tougher as different people have different perspectives. One of such suggestions might be better than yours.
A simple way to come up with a great domain name
We’ve talked about the characteristics of a good domain name for business. Its time to combine all those and see how easily you can come up with great domain name.
Suppose there is a technology firm called ‘Nano’, based in Bangalore.
Here, most important in the niche of the company and that’s ‘technology’, and next is its the name ‘Nano’. So the best one we have is Nanotech.com. But this should’t be available. Its probably be taken by someone else.
Since the best option is gone, we’ve Nanotech.org or Nanotech.in to consider. Anyone of these could be a great website name. But as I previously said, we move way from .com only if we’re getting desired name like ‘Nanotech’.
If none of these are available, then try adding location, short-forms of the name. One good name could be Ntech.com, NTechnologies.com or Ntechbanglaore.com.
Similarly, more such names can be taken into consideration. Apply brainstorming, ask your employees and friends to select the best one out of them.
