Pakistan has Exported About 100 Locally Assembled Aircraft in 2017

Pakistan is making immense progress in manufacturing defense products and is becoming the center of attention in the international market, said the Ministry of Defense Rana Tanveer Hussain.

About 100 small aircrafts “made in Pakistan” have been exported to various countries.

Pakistan has great potential when it comes to manufacturing defense products and introducing them worldwide.

Rana Tanveer said, “we are fulfilling the requirement of law enforcement agencies regarding the provision of defense-related equipment”.

This year in May, the Turkish Undersecretary for Defense Industries (SSM) gave Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) a contract for the sale of 52 MFI-395 Super Mushshak military training aircraft. The deal was made in this year’s International Defense Industry Fair, Istanbul. This deal was considered as PAC’s largest export order.

“If we make it [commercial aircraft] cost-effective, with sustained logistics and maintenance, it is going to be attractive to international customers”, says Air Marshall PAC Ahmer Shahzad told the media at 2017 Dubai Air Show.

Although MFI-395 Super Mushak was the major export, various countries like Argentina, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Nigeria, the Philippines, Venezuela and Zimbabwe showed great interest in JF-17 Thunder combat aircraft which was designed and built in cooperation with the Chengdu Aerospace Corporation (CAC) China.

“This is the model we have to learn from the United States of America, engineering in our security sectors must be leveraged for commercial opportunities and commercial applications so that it becomes a multiplier for national development.” Interior minister Ahsan Iqbal said.

For now, PAC and CAC have delivered almost 70 JF-17s with 14 additional aircraft expected to be manufactured by the end of 2017.

Not just that, PTDI has also signed an agreement with Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) to aid in marketing and technical support for N219.

By far, Turkey is Pakistan’s major trade partner in aircraft. If they keep up the pace, Pakistan’s defense products, especially aircrafts, could gain international recognition and help increase the country’s dwindling exports.

Top 5 Charities to Donate a Car in NY and NYC

he following is a list of the best organizations to donate a car in NY. We focused on providing a list of charities that no only accept vehicle donations, but also support programs that benefit NY and NYC.

Did you know? non-profits that sell your vehicle to support their programs might provide you with a lesser tax deduction than those that use the vehicle to fulfill their mission.

The IRS law states that, $500 or the price at which was sold your vehicle, whichever amount is greater, may be deducted from your tax statements.

In this article:

American Red Cross in Greater New York
Goodwill NY
Wheels for Wishes
Long Island Cares
Charity Cars
American Red Cross in Greater New York

Make a meaningful impact in NY by donating your vehicle to the car donation program of the American Red Cross. Your support will contribute with the prevention and human treatment during emergencies and may help save lives.

Visit the following link to donate a car in NY to the Red Cross

Goodwill NY

To contribute to humanitarian causes, through an organization that already has a very recognizable name and reputation in the industry, one may donate cars in NY through Goodwill. They offer towing at no cost and accept vehicles in any condition.

Consider the fact that the management and selling process of the donated cars is not done by Goodwill, this organization partnered with National Charity Services to make this program possible.

Therefore, for more information, please call National Charity Services at 866-492-2770 to arrange your car donation in NY and contribute to the Goodwill programs.

You may also visit the website of Goodwill to fill their online donation form to initiate the pick-up process. Have your clear title of your car ready with you. After the sale of your vehicle, you will receive your information regarding your claimable tax deduction.3

Long Island Cares
You may not know, but your vehicle might also contribute with one of the most important human needs: food. Help New York citizens that are having a hard time going through hunger with one of the most reputable charities in NY: Long Island Cares, providers of emergency food. They claim to feed 283,000 citizens of Long Island, NY every year. Cars, trucks and RVs, running or not; are all accepted vehicles in their car donation program which is managed by Donation Processors of America (DPA), not by the charity itself. Despite this, the program will provide you with everything you need to claim your tax deduction.

Donate a car in NY to this charity by calling: 877-872-2127

Remember to visit the website of Long Island Cares for more information on their organization and other ways you can contribute.

Charity Cars

Remember that most of the car donation programs will sell your vehicle at auction to obtain money to make a positive impact; but how much money will go to the cause you want to contribute to? The truth is most charities pay middlemen to manage the selling of the vehicles they collect. But obviously, you as a donor want to benefit the most, the cause you are most concerned with – and maybe at the same time obtain a worthy tax deduction.

Charity Cars, is a registered 501(C)(3) non-profit that has received the recognition from reputable figures such as Oprah and is one of the best places for car donations in NY, to make a positive impact in its fullest extent and to obtain the best tax deduction possible.
They connect donors such as you, with families across the United States that are currently struggling, such as victims of natural disasters, and need a vehicle for their transportation and to overcome their actual problems.

So this organization removes the middlemen to provide the most benefits for the families in need, what about the benefits regarding tax deductions for the donor?

If your vehicle is donated to, and used by, a struggling family, such as with Charity Cars, you can claim a tax deduction of the full fair market value of the vehicle, according to rules by the IRS. A lot less can be claimed if your car is sold by the non-profit. Use resources such as the website of Kelly Blue Books to know the fair market value of the car you are donating in NY.

Charity Cars even offers their current audited financial statements in their website, a huge plus for any wise philanthropist. For these reasons, this organization tops our list of the best non-profits to make a car donation in NY.

So if you want to donate a car in NY, call Charity Cars at 1-800-CHARITY which stands for 1-800-242-7489 or visit their website here.

They cover the cost of the towing everywhere in the US and accept running or not running cars. Please note that they require a clear title.

Thanks for your contribution, which will help New Yorkers and other Americans improve their lives.

The next step, after selecting your charity, is to learn about tax deductions and how to claim them. Read on the rest of our articles to learn about this important subject for philanthropists, and to become a wiser one.

Offline file transfer by apps [ Apps available on PlayStore ]

A Glance at History

There was a time when nobody knew what a mobile/phone is. It was out of depth of human that a person can talk to another person without visiting him directly. And now you can see we are not only talking to our friends or relatives but chatting by text, watching by video call, entertaining by videos & songs, calculating and many more tasks also have became possible in this era.
Some years ago we used our files like playing music, watching songs and movies and reading eBooks and later it became possible to share or receive files by 'Bluetooth' that is a default file transfer tool of every multimedia phone. As the time passed by new things started to come in human life to make it easier. There are many companies those are developing and launching their apps in the market. Their apps can be downloaded from various apps downloading platform like PlayStore, Amazon app store, 9apps etc. These companies are trying to create alternative apps to be on the top, because of this they will have to invest a lot money to promote their apps amongst the people. So, in this way a user can install their apps clicking on their Advertisement. Now let's come to point that we will cover here.

File transfer apps
You have read above that initially there was only 'Bluetooth' tool to transfer files one to another device. And now in the world of apps many apps are created that can transfer a file very quickly no matter how much its size is. Let's begin without wasting anymore time : -
1) Zapya
Zapya is one the most preferred file transfer application that transfer files very quickly and easily. This is available for Android, iOS, window and PC. This app has an amazing feature that allows the user to connect with multiple users at a time. This app is being used by millions of people if you don't believe you can check its downloads and rating on PlayStore.
When connecting Zapya between two devices one has to tap on 'Create Group' and other on 'Search and Join'.
2) SHAREit
This is also an awesome file transfer application used by millions of people in various countries. This app can be used on Android, iOS, Window and PC. It is very fast to share a file to another device. Check its downloads and rating on PlayStore it might be nearest to Zapya. In case of file transfer between Phone and PC open the app in both and a QR code will be shown in PC scan that by phone after completing the scanning devices will be connected.
When connecting SHAREit with another device one has to click on 'Send' button and other on 'Recieve'.
3) Xender
Xender is an interesting file transfer application that is supported on Android, iOS, Window and PC to transfer files offline. Multiple users are allowed to be connected at a time. To connect a phone to a PC, search and open on PC and scan the showing QR code by phone. Devices will be connected when scanning finished.
4) Sharecloud
It's an easy file transfer application but it has less downloads than above applications but its rating is good. The reason behind unpopularity of this app is that people are preffering Zapya and SHAREit most therefore they don't try it. But I assure you it's not so bad as you think. Try it and enjoy if like.

These were apps those transfer files offline used on Android, iOS, window and PC. I know a few more apps but I  didn't tell about them because those are not so quick to transfer files. If you have used any other app that is fast in sharing files please do mention in comments so that I could list that in this post.

Submit guest post to improve your blog traffic [Free SEO]

If you have a blog on that you are working regularly and posting valuable articles but you are not getting good response from the visitors then must follow some instructions. There are lots of ways by which a site can get more and more pageviews but most of them are costly or long time process. Here we are going to talk about free method that is 'Guest Post' on other blogs.

What is Guest Post ?
As you know that whatever a blogger writes on his blog is called an article or blog post as well as if a blogger writes an article to publish on any other blog that is not his own blog, that article/post is called guest post. Every blogger fixes some rules & regulations/terms and conditions for accepting a guest post.

 When you are writing a Guest Post to any blog you must know some important things : -
● Write a Guest Post, only for that blog that has similar contents to your blog. In other words we can say that guest post should write for same niche blog.
● Whom for you are writing a Guest Post that should be a familiar blog that gets lots of pageviews daily like shoutmeloud blog.
● Include important links of your blog in Guest Post to attract the visitors.
● Do tell about yourself and your blog in a Guest Post so that readers could know about you.
● Write always long article in about 1000 words that should be neat and clean.
● Use SEO friendly images that should be created by you. Don't upload any downloaded image otherwise you may have to face strike.
● Before submitting a Guest Post check all of these - Title, Heading, Subheadings, Keywords, Image and its position, number of words.
● One more thing that you should remember before you submit a Guest Post, read Guest Posting terms and conditions of the blog whom you submitting it.
● If any blogger rejected your Guest Post he also tells you the reason why he rejected your Guest Post. Improve that mistake and resubmit the guest post otherwise submit it to any other blogger who allows Guest Posting.
Advantages of Guest posting -
✔ You get a backlink (maybe dofollow) from a reputed blog that every blog needs to grow.
✔ It improves your blog performance stats that increase your blog revenue.
✔ It increases number of visitors those read your posts regularly.
✔ If your Guest Post gets good response you will be closer to the blog owner.
✔ It will work for you as an Advertisement that is always free for you.
✔ It will improve your mistakes you make in your blog posts. When any blogger rejects a Guest Post he also tells the reason for rejection.

Google Adsense : What is CPC, CTR, RPM, CPM in Adsense

Google Adsense is one of the best platform to monetize a blog and make money on the web. A blogger get paid for Ad impressions and valid Ad clicks served by Google. Revenue is debited in the Adsense account of blogger. But in last some weeks I'm getting many more messages regarding Adsense Report understanding, so I thought to reply all of them and like of them to make understand the Adsense Report through my blog post. In this article I will be talking all about Adsense Report understanding. After reading this article you will know that how Google Adsense pays to his clients.
You have published number of posts/articles on your blog and along with this you have published some pages, if a visitor go through them it is counted every time. It doesn't matter if a visitor view a page once, twice or thrice.
CPC stands for Cost Per Click that means how much a blogger get paid on a single Ad click. It is determined by the Advertisers who is paying to Google to promote his product or services. CPC is based on Keywords, high CPC keywords pays more amount. To get high CPC keywords for a blog post or article Google Keyword Planner can be used that is free forever. There are some paid sites that can show you latest high CPC keywords if pay for their service. Semrush and Ahrefs are one of them that is preferred by successful bloggers.
CTR stands for Click Through Rate that means percentage of Ad click. To calculate CTR you can see its formula -
CTR = (Clicks/No of pageviews) * 100
for example today your blog got 4 click on 500 pageviews then
CTR = (6/500) * 100 = 1.2 %
It should not be higher than 3 or 5% otherwise you may have to face problems regarding your account. Sometimes accounts are blocked by Google due to the suspension of invalid click activity.
CTR has three kinds -

1. Page CTR
2. Impression CTR
3. Ad CTR
CPM stands for Cost Per Thousands that is paid a blogger for 1000 Ad impressions. It is counted on 1000 Ad impressions. Have you known anything here ? You are not paid only for Ad clicks but also for Ad impressions received.

RPM stands for Rate Per Thousand that means estimated earning of a blogger for 1000 Ad impressions. It doesn't mean actual earning therefore it's called estimated earning. To calculate it see the formula used for it -
CPM = (estimated earning/pageviews) * 1000
Ad Impressions
It means how many times Ad was shown on the web page. For example you have embedded 2 Ad units in a single article and that article is read by three people on different devices then pageviews will be 3 and Ad impressions will be 3*2=6

Hope that you have understood all about Adsense Report and its importance. If deem it interesting do share it with your friends who are making money from Google Adsense.

Monetize your blog with Ad Networks [ Fast & Easy Approval ]

If you have created a site so I would like to recommend you to Apply for Google Adsense that is a most popular Contextual Ad Network works throughout the world. But lots of bloggers are worried about the Google Adsense Approval. I also applied for Adsense but I didn't get approval for one of my accounts because having original and unique contents is not enough to get approved. There lots of stuff that Google looks in your blog.

Here I'm going to share my own experience that I use on my other Blog to make money from that. This is called Affiliate Ad Networks or Google Adsense Alternatives. Here I would like to clear you that the biggest bloggers are making more from Google Alternatives than Google Adsense. But in mind all Ad Networks doesn't approve your site at once they look into your blog and after that they approve or reject your application within some working days. There are some Ad Networks those approve any blog without any terms & condition and some of them pays very well sum.

Fast Approval Ad Networks

RevenueHits is very good Ad Network that offer its affiliate program. Publishers place its Ads on their sites and when a user click an Ad and take any action then publishers get paid. It doesn't pay for Ad click or impression.

Propeller Ads
It is one of those Ad Networks that approve any site instantly and pays for Ad click and impression and so on.

It is an old Ad Network it also approve any blog instantly and let the bloggers earn. But its Ad its Ads are not high quality Ads. One of a good thing in it is various kinds of Ads that increase the chances of more Ad clicks.

Chitika is a good Ad Network that approves a blog within some minutes. It is recommended by big bloggers that if a blogger has good search traffic on his site then its good for him. But if the site's major traffic is from Social Media so don't use it otherwise you will say I am cheated at the time of payment.

There are some more Ad Networks that you can try if you get approval from them : -


That's it. If you liked the article let more bloggers know it by sharing on Social Media. If you are using any other Ad Networks please mention that in the comments or by contact form. The Best Google Adsense Alternative By Yahoo ! Bing for Bloggers

There are many Ad networks those pay for showing Advertisement on a blog or website. These Ad networks either pay for Pay Per Click or Per Action. Ad networks those pay for Pay Per Click are called PPC Ad networks and others are Direct Ad networks. When we think of making money from our website or blog the first name of Ad network comes of Google Adsense. There are lots of reasons because of that Google is most preferred Ad network amongst the Bloggers. Contextual Ads give better revenue than direct Ads and Adsense is most trusted Contextual Ad network that can never cheat its publishers. But lots of bloggers/publishers lose their hope of making money with Google Adsense because Adsense Approval process is very hard and on the other hand they disable or suspend any blog or website due to many reasons. Therefore a number of publishers are using its Alternatives those pay very well sum but less than Google Adsense. Some of Bloggers are earning from Affiliate Marketing double or triple to Google Adsense account. Today I am going to talk about a Ad Network that is the second biggest Ad network of the world powered by Yahoo and Bing together.

Bing search engine is introduced by Bill Gates who is the richest person of the world. Ad Network is one of the best Contextual Ad network because its Approval Process is easier than Google Adsense. They approve any blog related to any niche. One more important thing you can use Google Adsense and Ads on the same site that's good to earn more with the blog. Some of the rules are same as Google Adsense like : -
#1  Content should be original and well structured
#2  Enough material should be published
#3  Site should be at least some months old
#4  Revenue in Account
#5  Creating different types of Ads and customize them according to the choice
#6  Site must have traffic etc. doesn't approve an account if you have a site created with subdomain. If you are using Google Blogger your account will be rejected every time because it is offered by Google and its all services are provided free. So, if you want Approved Account your site should have a custom domain name and the site should have a paid hosting not on blogger. approve all small and big blogs related to any niche. If you Sign up today they will respond you within 2 working days. If your account gets approval then log in to your account and create Ad unit and customize if you want and then implement the code on your blog.

Keep in mind Ads may not be served at once, it takes some days because your site will be under review for some days. One more thing to remember doesn't show your revenue on the same day, it takes 1 to 3 days to be processed your revenue but impressions shows at once. Don't worry it's not a big problem because they don't cheat their publishers. You don't get paid only for Clicks but also for Impression RPM (Rate Per Thousand) like Google Adsense. Sometimes gives higher CPC and RPM than Google Adsense.

It's also a Contextual Ad (Ads based on content) network like Google Adsense. If you have a blog about Mobile reviews then will show mobile and mobile accessories Ads on your blog.

If I talk about its payment threshold it is $100 that is similar to Google Adsense but still pays by two payment methods first is PayPal and another one is wire-transfer.

That's all about I know, if you knew anything more about it I will update that. If you know anything more about please do tell me in the comment so that it could be a perfect article on please share it on your social networks if you think it important.

I would like to suggest you that don't cheat Google using VPNs because Google is not that what you estimate. Google can detect your every activity whether you are a hacker because that is the father of hackers. Search anyone in your community who earned and got payment from Google using tricks, hope that you can't find. You will be get paid for every click but maintain the CTR that should not cross 10%. When you will earn $10 you will be sent a pin verification letter to your registered address and after reaching the payment threshold that is $100 you can ask for payment via wire-transfer or cheque. Google says to ask for the payment after 22 of every month. You will definitely get money if you earned honestly.

Hope it helped you, let me know your experience, queries and suggestions in the comments. Take Care of yourself

Telecom is reeling under mass layoffs. Casualties so far: 75,000 jobs & counting (India)

MUMBAI: The telecom sector lost a fourth of its workforce, or some 75,000 employees, in the last one year as operators, tower firms and vendors consolidate to remain afloat in the severely competitive industry.

In the telecom industry, manpower accounts for 4-5% of the costs, but in the last few years there was no reining in of salaries. Now that expenses need to be harnessed, employees will be the first casualty.

Players are shutting shop, shrinking operations and shedding flab in terms of both permanent and contract employees to run a tight ship, and now only 75% of the workforce remain from a year ago. More exits are on the anvil.

“About a year ago, there were three lakh employees, 25% of which have moved out of the sector in the last 12 months,” said A Ramachandran, partner at search firm Ema Partners. Most job losses are through involuntary attrition, which means they have been asked to go by the companies with a few months’ notice and a severance package of 3-6 months’ salary in some cases.

Ramachandran said that 35-40% of employees in vendor companies have left the sector while operators have seen 25-30% of their workforce shrink in the same period.
For the 2.25 lakh employees left in the sector, the turbulent period has just started because once mergers take place overlapping areas will see manpower further slashed.

Those who have niche skills will find it harder to adapt to other industries and this, say recruiters, is likely to affect middle- and senior-level employees who will have fewer places to go to.

“About 50% of the employees in the telecom sector are middle managers and at least 25-30% of them who quit or were asked to go belong to this category,” said Vivek Mehta, executive director for ABC Consultants, who oversees telecom hiring. This means about 20,000 employees from the mid segment are not employed by the industry anymore.

Atop executive in an incumbent telco said the company is not refilling vacant posts anytime soon.

According to Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy, about 1.5 million jobs were lost in January-April 2017, which means fewer places to get hired when overall employment in India Inc has dipped.

ABC Consultants’ Mehta added that there will be another, fresh round of exits once mergers take shape since consolidation is still in approval stages for many. “There will be at least another 15% reduction in manpower,” he says.

The telecom sector, reeling under Rs 5 lakh crore of debt and facing a sharp fall in revenue, profitability and free cash flows, has been on a consolidation spree since Reliance Jio’s entry in September last year. Second-ranked telco Vodafone India and No. 3 Idea Cellular are on track to merge while Bharti Airtel has announced its intentions to pick up the wireless business of Tata Teleservices, having earlier bought Telenor India.

Reliance Communications has decided to plug most of its wireless business by November end, while Aircel is believed to be concentrating on a few niche circles and winding up business in others.

It is not just the mobile phone operators but even those in the vendor segment and tower companies too have been shedding flab. The impact has been such that a recruitment company's head, who did not want to be named, said that his telecom vertical now has only two hiring agents, down from eight members a few months ago.

Recruiters say there has been a 35-40% increase in resumes coming in from employees in the telecom sector who want to exit the industry as soon as possible. The employees across levels are gearing to take a pay cut and head for the e-commerce, transport, logistics and FMCG.

Hiring experts say those who have been asked to leave have got wages of a few months as severance packages. Another recruiter told ET on condition of anonymity that few of the telcos cutting costs and changing their business outlook have reached out to them to outplace their employees.

An outplacement agency helps candidates who have been retrenched look for another job or get skilled. The company that is letting go often reaches out to the outplacement firms.

Kris Lakshmikanth, chairman of search firm Headhunters India, has seen a 10-15% drop in hiring at the senior management level and has noticed 25-33% drop in the overall workforce strength of the industry.

Staffing firms said clients are asking for more contract employees with knowledge of software and technical aspects of tower and infrastructure business.

“The last one year has been almost lull for us from the operators’ side, but we expect hiring demand coming in from infrastructure and tower companies as investments pick up in the segment and towers and fibre cables are laid down,” says Rituparna Chakraborty, executive vice president, Teamlease Services.

5 Microsoft Made Android Apps You May Not Know About

Windows Phone may be struggling to prove itself as a great mobile OS, but Microsoft is not seeming to hope people to buy a Windows Phone to use their services and apps, rather than that, the Redomond Giant is creating tons of apps for other mobile platforms.

Most people have already heard about Microsoft Office, Bing and OneDrive etc but there is more to it. Some apps for android made by Microsoft are not just bunch of ports, instead they are surprisingly good and innovative to use.

Lets take look on Microsoft’s top 5 Android Apps that you may not have heard about.

Arrow Launcher

Recently launched for public use, Arrow Launcher is a full flagged Android Home Screen replacement. It tries to make stuff easily accessible by showing user recently used apps and recently contacted people on the home screen.

Arrow Launcher is not a flat style launcher. It has its own visual style and if you wish, you can use third party icon packs with the launcher to customize the visual experience. The launcher also packs a vertical app drawer with a handy search bar on the top to make app access quicker.

Next Lock Screen

Initially started as a garage project on Microsoft,It is an excellent option to use with the Arrow Launcher. Next Lock Screen is a replacement for the stock lock screen. It works on all Android Smartphone running version 4.1 or higher. Next Lock Screen makes it easy to launch apps right from your Lock-screen.
t can also show you your all notifications on the lockscreen. Aimed at professionals, it makes it possible to view and act on notifications without unlocking the phone.
on{X} is currently in beta but in my use, I did not find any bugs. It is a bit complex to use at first. Initially, using this you can automate tons of thing on your Android Phone. Such as you can set your Phone to mute once you get to your office. The app requires Facebook login to work.
Honestly, IFTTT is good at doing this, but as it is made by Microsoft, it deserves to be on this list.

OneNote is well known Note taking app by Microsoft, but some people find it too feature rich and cumbersome to use. Parchi is a great tiny note taking app. It sizes only 4MB and it is also easy to use. You can use hashtags (#tags) to link notes on a specific topic. Parchi was also started as a Microsoft Garage project.

Parchi was also started as a Microsoft Garage project.

In Parachi, you can create several types of notes and you can also take action on them (calling someone as an example)

Parchi looks clean is definitely worth giving a try.

Office Lens

The name says all about it, Office Lens is a scanning app and it can take photos and convert them to usable PDFs and other formats.

Office Lens works really well with Microsoft Office apps for Android. After you take a photo of a Printed page or a clipboard, the Microsoft app will cut all the unnecessary stuff out and you will be presented with a clean and neat scanned that can be used with Microsoft Word Documents and other apps.
You can use the app to save scans to OneDrive, in Gallery as Image and even as a PDF not to mention that it also sends them to Office Apps

Apart from these apps, do you know any other cool Android App that is made my Microsoft? How many of these were already know by you?

Compact COM Express-based subsystem packs plenty of DAQs

Diamond’s rugged, Linux-ready “Zeta” subsystem combines a COM Express Mini Type 10 module based on Apollo Lake or Bay Trail SoCs with a DAQ-rich carrier.

Diamond Systems has launched an Intel-based data acquisition SBC called the Zeta, which unlike most sandwich-style SBCs, has a top and bottom layer that match perfectly. The Zeta’s COM Express Mini Type 10 module sits between a similarly compact, 84 x 55mm carrier board and a bottom-mounted heat spreader plate. The combined SBC supports -40 to 85°C temperatures, and offers 6-36V DC input power operation.
The Zeta COM Express Mini Type 10, which Diamond does not appear to be promoting as a standalone computer-on-module product, supports the quad-core Atom E3940 and Pentium N4200 from Intel’s Apollo Lake generation, as well as a dual-core Atom E3825 from the earlier Bay Trail family. The announcement implies that Diamond will eventually follow up with a COM Express Mini Type 10 module with a future Atom processor so you can upgrade the system without discarding the carrier board and heat spreader.
Zeta (left) and block diagram
(click images to enlarge)

According to Diamond, the 84 x 55mm Zeta offers functionality and performance equivalent to Diamond’s Bay Trail-based Aries PC/104 SBC, at just 40 percent of its 116 x 102mm size. Other recent Diamond SBCs include the 3.5-inch, Skylake based Venus. Back in 2013, Diamond released a sandwich-style, Intel Atom E6x0T based Falcon EPU boardset that combined a COM Express Type 10 Mini with a baseboard. Like all these boards, and other Diamond SBCs such as last year’s Vortex86DX3 based Helix, the Zeta lacks real-world ports.
The Zeta ships with 2GB, 4GB, or 8GB RAM depending on whether you’ve selected the Atom E3825, Atom E3940, or Pentium N4200. There’s also a microSD slot, as well as a mini-PCIe slot with mSATA support. Standard features include 2x GbE, VGA, LVDS, USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, and 4x RS-232/422/485.

UC Browser has mysteriously disappeared from the Google Play Store

UC Browser for Android appears to have been taken down from the Google Play Store. The mobile-friendly version of the web browser seemingly disappeared without a trace earlier today, just weeks after the app topped 500 million downloads on Google’s mobile store.

For those unfamiliar with the name, UC Browser is developed by UCWeb, which is owned by China’s Alibaba Group. As well as being a hugely popular alternative to Google Chrome in its home region, UC Browser has an enormous base in India.

While Chrome has since reinstated some of its dominance, back in June, UC Browser became India’s favourite mobile browser and at one point grasped over 50 percent market share. In addition, it is the sixth most downloaded Android app in India.

UCWeb has also claimed that Indian users make up 100 million of its total monthly active users from around the world, with the latter figure reportedly reaching 420 million, per reports from 2016. As a result, its removal is a shocking step to say the least. It will also lead to a number of key questions, most notably: why was it removed after all this time and after so many downloads?

UC Browser’s disappearance was first spotted by the eagle-eyed netizens on Reddit, and its users have an interesting theory.Reports began swirling in August that claimed UC Browser has a rather nasty habit of stealing sensitive user data which it then sends back to remote servers in China without the user’s consent. As part of a widespread investigation into data security, Indian government officials expressed concerns that the UC Browser app continues to collect this data after it has been uninstalled, per a Times of India report.

UC Browser has come under scrutiny regarding data security concerns in the past. In 2015, Canadian researchers claimed that the Chinese and English-language version of UC Browser “made easily available to third parties personally identifiable information like location, search details and mobile subscriber and device numbers.”
Many of the Reddit posters addressing UC Browser’s unexpected disappearance seem to think that the recent allegations are to blame, as it had been thought that the app could be banned in India should the accusations hold any water.

At present there is no evidence to either confirm or deny these suspicions and both Google and UCWeb are yet to comment on the situation, at the time of writing. UCWeb has previously denied any wrongdoing, stating that it “will not do anything to breach the trust of our users” and that it takes “security and privacy very seriously.”

There’s certainly more to this story and we’ll be keeping an eye out for any official word on the matter. In the meantime, it’s worth noting that the UC Browser Mini, an alternative app built for less powerful devices, is still live on the Play Store.

Flipkart to launch its own smartphone brand Billion Capture+ today

A lot of market intelligence that was acquired over a period of time by India's leading e-commerce company Flipkart is being put to test as the company's own smartphone product is going on sale under Billion Catpure+ brand in Rs 10,000 price bracket from November 15, 2017.

Hyderabad-based homegrown technology OEM Smartron has worked on Flipkart's maiden smartphone product in terms of design and development besides getting it manufactured for the e-commerce company.

"Flipkart has a very good market intelligence. They have shared many important inputs in finalising the specifications and prototyping of the product besides the price point. We also brought in our own expertise into the design, engineering and specs of the product. We expect a good response from the phone," Smartron chairman Mahesh Lingareddy told Business Standard on Tuesday.

The partnership with Flipkart comes as a big breakthrough for Smartron as it has been looking for opportunities to build hardware devices for third party brands that work on its own software ecosystem called tronX. It is an AI-powered IoT platform that combines a range of services and applications, including IoT and cloud, according to the company.

Mahesh Lingareddy says their partnership with Flipkart will extend to other future devices of the e-commerce company as well. Between its own products such as t-phone and t-book and the third party brands, Smartron will be building a range of devices, including smartphones and wearables at 4-5 price points in the next 12 months, according to him.

Mahesh thinks that launching a new phone model every six months was an aberration introduced by the Chinese companies. "We have built a quality product based on a good software platform. A quality product like this would last 18 months, "he said.

According to the company’s official blog, Qualcomm is celebrating a decade of chipsets and communications technologies manufacture today. The company may have gotten its start creating modem technologies for trucking fleets back in 1985 but it has been creating Snapdragon chips since the release of its Snapdragon S1 in 2007. It’s first entry in an Android device – the HTC Dream – was in 2008 and by 2010 Qualcomm’s unit shipments surpassed 500 million. Between that first SoC and the current run of Snapdragon 835 chips found in modern flagships, the company has accomplished quite a lot – despite current sentiments about its licensing practices. That includes a number of industry firsts and world firsts, which Qualcomm has helpfully outlined in the infographic included below. Those accomplishments expanded the company from a modem manufacturer into arguably the most important company creating Android chipsets, in addition to its existence as a top components maker for everything from self-driving cars to smartwatches.

In 2009, the company introduced the world to the industry’s first dual carrier HSPA+ chipset, followed by the first dual-core Android processors in 2010. Between 2012 and 2013, the company made the world’s first Voice over Internet Protocol mobile call via LTE and moved past LTE to introduce the very first LTE-advanced-capable SoC in the industry – with the Snapdragon 800, which was capable of 150Mbps connections. Meanwhile, 2014 was a bumper year for the company, during which it introduced more world firsts with its 64-bit 3G LTE integrated chipset, LTE-A Cat 10 modem, LTE dual-SIM solution, Snapdragon 400 for Android Wear, and a Snapdragon-powered in-car infotainment solution. All of those accomplishments were further rounded out in 2016 when the company announced the first ever Gigabit Class LTE modem for mobile devices, paving the way for next-generation networking connections alongside the company’s showing off the first ever over-the-air-connection to be made via enhanced the LTE-U platform, MulteFire.

2017 has not, as of this writing, contained any world firsts. On the other hand, it has seen the company becoming heavily involved in nearly every portion of the chipset market and pressing, alongside partner companies, for the future of 5G connections, among other things. The company also revealed that it expects to expand again by early 2018 – this time into the Windows PC market in competition with Intel and AMD. There’s no telling what kinds of innovation the level of competitiveness Qualcomm brings to the table will be able to deliver on that front. However, the company appears more than ready to continue in the technology industry for the long-haul, with many more good things to come.

Lenovo Thinkpad 13 Chromebook, Acer Chromebook 11, and three others receive Android app support

It has been a slow journey, but Google has been hard at work giving more Chromebooks access to Android app support. The Play Store arrived on 17 more Chromebooks last month, and now Google has added a few more to the growing list.

First off, the Acer Chromebook 11 (C740) and Dell Chromebook 11 (7310) now have Android app support in the Chrome OS Beta channel. If you have either of those Chromebooks, and you can't wait for the feature to be finished, switching to the Beta channel is pretty easy. Be warned - you can't switch back to the stable channel without wiping your Chromebook's local data.

The HP Chromebook 13 G1, Lenovo Thinkpad 13 Chromebook, and Samsung Chromebook 3 now have the Play Store in the Chrome OS stable channel. The HP model already had it in the Beta channel, but as far as I'm aware, the Samsung and Lenovo ones didn't have Android app support at all until now.

Papa John’s apologizes for comments about NFL player protests

Papa John’s, which came under fire for blaming the NFL’s handling of player protests for declining pizza sales, used Twitter Tuesday to apologize for the potential divisiveness of its stance.

"The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive. That definitely was not our intention," the company, an NFL sponsor, tweeted.

With controversy around the national anthem protests percolating, Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter said on the Nov. 1 call, "The NFL leadership has hurt Papa John's shareholders. The NFL has been a long and valued partner over the years. But we're certainly disappointed that the NFL and its leadership did not resolve the ongoing situation to the satisfaction of all parties long ago. This should've been nipped in the bud a year and half ago."

Papa John’s series of Tuesday tweets said while the company supports players’ rights to protest, it believes that the anthem should be honored and that it’s willing to work with players and the league to move forward from the controversy.

We believe in the right to protest inequality and support the players’ movement to create a new platform for change. We also believe together, as Americans, we should honor our anthem. There is a way to do both. (2/3)
