If you have ever used the internet, which is obvious since you are reading this post then you should support net neutrality. First, let us know what net neutrality means- Net Neutrality simply means that all content and data should be treated equal. It is a global principle of keeping internet freedom intact. Now you would be wondering that who would take your freedom? Your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

ISPs want to act as a gatekeeper since it will bump their revenues and benefit big corporations. The small companies will not get a fair chance to survive and prosper. Telecom providers are opposing Net Neutrality since their costs have increased and they need to develop different strategies to earn profits.

Now you might be wondering what the Government is doing? Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued a consultation paper of 118 pages which contains 20 questions. No, I am not telling you to read so many pages. As a responsible citizen you just have to log on to www.savetheinternet.in and click on ‘Respond To TRAI’. You just have to mail the auto-response to TRAI.

Basically the only platform where you can express your feelings freely i.e. the Internet, will no longer be accessible the way you like if you don’t take action. If you lose your money, you can earn it again but if you lose your freedom then no one can save you. It’s the time to fight for our rights!

Scientists have invented a new solution that could fuel various energy applications, from personal electronics to grid storage. The researchers have detailed their findings in the journal Nature. A team lead by chemistry professor Hongjie Dai at Stanford University in California made a breakthrough by accidentally discovering that graphite made a good partner to aluminium, Stanford said in a statement. The new technology uses aluminium battery which lasts for more than 7500 cycles which is the best performance ever for a Aluminium based battery. The prototype consists of a soft pouch, containing aluminium for one electrode and a graphite foam for the other – all surrounded by a special liquid salt. [click to continue…]

Location Tracking may sound like a boring and dull feature which most of the smartphones have these days. However, Apple is bringing a nice twist to this old feature.

Apple has filed a new patent titled “Sharing location information among devices” that details how a device can track another device in real time. This feature is already available for Google Waze users who can see all other Waze users in the map. Apple can also use this feature in ‘Find My Friend‘ application which notifies other users when their friends have checked in a location.

Apple Location Tracking Patent

The location data can then be communicated over WiFi, cellular and even Bluetooth. This technology works on peer-to-peer connections and use other user’s device as the destination. If implemented this feature can make real time tracking even easier and would pioneer a new way to use Maps. Another possible use could be allowing other apps to access this feature. Other features include a mirroring technology in which one device can see exactly what the other device is looking at in the maps including favorite places. It also allows users to communicate from the same window in real time.

The patent further goes on to say that the feature could be used on a human being, animal and robot highlighting further uses of the new technology. Currently, path tracking is not a big industry for moving objects but this appears to be a perfect solution for the same.

Apple’s friend tracking patent was first filed for in January 2013 and credits Eran Sandel, Elad Harush, and Roman Guy as its inventors.
