Google wishes happy holidays with Boxing Day doodle

On the Google home page, the happy holiday theme has inspired yet another doodle, making it the third day doodle on the subject. The doodle on Christmas day and Christmas Eve, as in Thursday Google doodle is simple, instead we have seen attractive is the recent days.

The latest Google doodle, which shows an isolated house enclosed by snow, with a star-lit-sky forming the backdrop, features as a message form the company once the user take the cursor over it, saying “Tis the season” The doodle first seen in the early Christmas morning for regions near the international dateline, such as New Zealand. It is now predictable in India as well as at the google.co.in web page.

Once user take over the cursor on the image and click it, they get redirected to Google search page, where the Happy Holidays results being shown. The result page does not pretend the clear info about news results followed by images and videos and a relatively extraneous Wikipedia entry for the song, Happy Holiday” written by Irving Berlin on 1941.

Google Christmas doodle seems an unidentifiable city enclosed in festive occasion with building lit up and a Christmas tree marking the occasion.

Google Christmas eve doodle entailed with a plain image represent two people riding a horse-driven sled in a bleak winter landscape.

As like the previous year there are so many complaints about Google not being sufficiently ‘Christmasy” with its doodles and Once again the Google is wishing the Happy holidays instead of Merry Christmas diplomatically conveying the good wishes to those region or users that aren’t celebrating the christen festival.

The merry Christmas and happy holidays debate is settled in hurry, we suggest you enjoy the time off with family and friends, regardless of the name it carries.

 

Apple and China Mobile sign deal to sell iPhones in January

In January Apple is planning to offer the IPhone to the more than 760 million china mobile customers which could help it to raise its share from the fifth position in the growing market.

Apples has already sells its phones in china through two other carriers in the country– China Telecom and China Unicom but to deal with mobile, the largest in the country, has escaped it for some time. Reason may be behind it is that China Mobile uses a different wireless telecommunications standard from its competitors.

According to rumors it was announced on Sunday, Apple’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5C will be available from china Mobile and on apple retail store in china on Jan 17. Preregistration of the phone will started on the carrier website and through its customer service hotline from Wednesday.

Apple said on his statement, the pricing of the iPhone 5s and 5c for china mobile will be offered at a later date.

According to the research firm it comes to know that apple share of the Chinese smartphone reached 8percent in the third quarter. Samsung Electronics was the third largest player with having 21percent market share, surveyed by Lenovo with a 13 percent share. Yulong Computer telecommunication with 11 percent market share and Huawei with 9 percent has taken the third and fourth stage.

On December china issued 4G licenses to three local carriers including China Telecom, which has been Organizing base station across the country using a 4G technology recognized as LTE TDD (Long- Term Evolution Time Division Duplex).

Apple had been supporting china Telecom TD-SCDMA (Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access) 3G network technology but on Sunday it’s declared that the iPhones would run on both 4G TD-LTE and 3G TD-SCDMA networks.

By the end of the year according to a joint statement the two companies China Mobile 4G services will be available in 16 cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

In 2014 china mobile plans to complete the rollout of more than 500,000 4G base stations, in which they will target more than 340 cities with 4G service, it added.

In September Apple added NTTDOCOM , Japan’s largest carrier, to its list of customers for the iPhone.

5 things to consider before committing to SAP

Installing SAP applications is no panic. Employees who are capable of installing and maintaining SAP software are in high ultimatum and practically form a whole profession by themselves.

SAP, has developed its reputation with ERP software, is hardly chosen by enterprises for one off applications, In this month AMR Research analyst Jim Shepherd notes in a report The Five SAP strategies  that you need to understand.  He wrote the huge organizations, this is typically a multiyear, multimillion dollar effort to change the business. Unfortunately, administrators rarely pay less attention to SAP installations once they are deployed.

Let take a view on the Five SAP strategies Shepherd details in his report and how it effects to your technology decisions.

SAP’s growth strategy

SAP tries to increase the revenue by licensing 75 percent or more each client’s employees and by convincing ERP clients to sign up to expand the portfolio of business tools such as Microsoft Office integration and Business Objects’ set of reporting, business-intelligence and analytics applications.

Shepherd wrote, the strategy is planned to give competencies that either encourages additional user seats within the existing products or requires licensing brand-new products outside the Business Suite [software line],”

Customer Challenge: SAP’s customers pay a huge amount in upfront on licensing charges and a lesser amount in ongoing for additional licenses as needed and maintenance fees.  Shepherd Wrote SAP does not need a lot of money in the upfront- but it requires a lot of money later and this builds considerable debate and tension.

Users think new capabilities will be available for free as product enhancements but SAP likes to position new experience as brand- new products, Shepherd wrote “SAP generates most of its income from the installed base. Its object to ensure that user wills never stops purchasing the licenses and maintenance and servers.

 

SAP’s industry strategy

SAP has gained the vast market in various industries as oil and gas, chemical and life sciences by altering products to their specific needs. Now SAP is focusing to increase its market in this industry where they have given a strong base. Look for SAP to use achievement s and partnership to target the client needs of industries where the vendor is looking to grow. This includes non-manufacturing such sectors as trade, insurance, teaching, finance and government.

SAP’s product strategy

Shepherd wrote SAP was basically a one product company for most of its history First it was R/1, then R/2 and then R/3.

SAP’s product-release strategy

SAP historically has repaired its ERP product line every five years. Clients used to face a rigid choice each time a new product was established, but SAP finally is providing easier moves, with enhancement packages being allotted every six to 12 months at no extra cost.

 

 

 

 

All About The New Google “Hummingbird” Algorithm

Google has a new search algorithm, the system it uses to sort through all the information it has when you search and come back with answers. It’s called “Hummingbird” and below, what we know about it so far.

All about the New Google “Hummingbird” Algorithm

Google has a new search strategies, the system sort all the information which you search and it comes with the answers.

What’s a Search algorithm?

It’s a technical term for what you can of as a recipe that Google differ from the billions of web pages and other information it has, in order to reply what it believes are the best answers.

What’s “Hummingbird?”

Hummingbird is the new search algorithm which Google uses, one who says Google should return better results.

Is the PageRank algorithm is no more?

No. Page rank is still alive over 200 major “ingredients” which comes under hummingbird recipe. Hummingbird views the Page rank-how the important links to a page are reckoned to be- along with the other features like whether Google believes the Good Quality Content, the words used to it and many other things.

Why it’s called Hummingbird??

Google considered the name come from precise and fast.

When did Hummingbird start?

Google has started Hummingbird previous month ago. Google announced the changes today.

What does it mean that Hummingbird is now being used?

A car which was built in the 1950s. It might have a great engine, but might lacks in fuel injection or be unable to use unleaded fuel. When Google switched to Hummingbird, as it’s thrown the old engine out of a car and put in a new one. It also did this so quickly that no one really noticed the switch.

 

 

 

 

Google goes offline with Chrome Apps for Mac

Recently Google has launched its latest packaged of apps, dubbed “chrome Apps”, for the Mac, making the good promises from September when it kicked off testing.

Three weeks ago, Google has released the chrome 31 for OSX, now supports Chrome apps, Google souped-up, cross platform web apps that are much closer to natural software, the kind written for a specific operating system, like windows or OS X. Chrome apps can work on the off mode and call on various Google APIs and services lined to traditional based apps.

Chrome apps is written in HTML5, JavaScript  and CSS, its look like the simple application since they run in a bare bones frame minus any browser as like address bar.

Recently In the month of September Google has previewed the chrome apps and associated app launch for the Mac in the early develop of its browser, but they said that they are going to switch on the functionality in the stable version.

On the September chrome 29, window has chrome app support with initially support going back as far as February.  Yet the Chrome apps are not supporting the Linux version.

From the day of the conference of the June 2012, Google is been forcing to construct the packaged app strategy, experts have viewed the move as an attempt to challenge rivals’ operating system by using the latest chrome browser as a Trojan horse.

Chrome apps roots extend to chrome OS, the browser based operating system is increasing the number of computer developers, or OEMs, have used specialized chrome-book notebook lines. For example On Wednesday Dell has announced its chrome-book and will sell the 11 inch laptop in less than $300 to educational buyers.

Chrome OS and the spin-off Chrome Apps have a tough row to hoe, analysts have said.

 Patrick Moorhead Principal analyst with Moor visions and strategy said on yesterday, to go the user mainstream, Google needs to completely add off line feasibility to chrome OS.

Last month, Google tried to remedy the inventory issue with its first Chrome Dev Summit, a two-day developers conference that featured sessions on creating traditional Web apps and packaged apps, accessing APIs, and optimizing app performance.

Chrome 31 for OSX is now available to download from the Google’s website which includes the chrome apps support.

WeatherBug, one of a handful of available Chrome Apps, looks and behaves much like a “native” application on OS X.

Games help improve software security

Ever more rarify cyber-attacks exploit software unsafe in the commercial off the shelf (COTS) IT systems and applications upon which military, government and commercial organizations trust.

The most stringent way to prevent from these attacks is formal verification; an analysis process helps to certify that software is free from exploitable faults and vulnerabilities. However for the formal methods it requires the trained engineers to manually scour software’s-a process is now too slow and costly to employ outside of the small software components.

Getting, quicker and the cost effective means to accomplish formal verification is a national security priority, So DARPA’s CSFV (Crowd sourced formal verification) has constructed and establish its verigames web portal (www.verigames.com) offering online formal verification games.

The CSFV games alter the players’ actions into program comments and gives mathematical proofs to assure the lack of important classes of errors in software written in the C and Java programming languages. CSFV motive is to investigate whether the non-experts will be able to play the formal verification games in a formal verification manner in a faster way and in the more cost effective way than conventional processes.

Drew Dean said that we took the really hard math problems and map it into the interesting and attractive puzzle games that online players will solve for joy, The DARPA managers’ By leveraging the player’s intelligence and creativity on a broader term, in which hope to reduce the security analysts to overcome in the formal verification.

CSFV has constructed the automatic procedure which permits the creation of new puzzles for each math issue the program pursues to analyze. If its reveal the harmful code, DARPA will implement the approve notification and modification procedures, by notifying the organization responsible for the affected software. Because CSFV authenticates open source software which government or any commercial department of defense may utilize, quick notification is required to correct the software instantly and modify the risk of security failures.

Don’t Stitch Copied Content from Multiple Sites

The many of the marketers and site owners knows the importance of the original, quality content in their marketing plans and still few people tries to understand what it really stands for.

In the recent Google webmaster video, once again Matt Cutts discussed about the line between spam and original content.

The question arises: Can you copy the small portion of content from the various websites and combine it to create the new page and compete with the Google??

 Cutts begins explaining the question in practice about yahoo disfavor for its past days. Yahoo considered this method as stitching and they considered that spam said Cutts.

Does the Google consider it as a spam? “He said if you are taking the quotes from everyone else, that is probably will not add the value.

He has given the best example of where the multiple means with bits of information in an article, mentioning Wikipedia as an example. In Wikipedia the information is gathered from the various sources as citation to support the main topic, but to do in the way that reports and summarizes the information to create a new, unique web page on the matter.

While many may be unclear about what the original content means, when in doubt, know that any time you’re cutting corners in your content, you are likely not writing the best content you can for that website.
