5800 XpressMusic - Clock Rate Increased to 434 Mhz

If you have yet to update your firmware I suggest you do not hesitate for much longer. The new firmwares from software version 20.0.12 increased the CPU Clock rate to 434Mhz. This speeds up the user interface giving you quick access to menu's, functions, facilities and options and solved many bug issues. Prior to v20.0.12 update, the CPU rate was 369Mhz. Thats a whopping 65MHz increase!! XD

With this update the CPU frequency of the 5800XM is now the same as of N97!! :P

Do Not Disturb, finally a Reality...

Yes!! over 230 Million Indian Telecom subscribers will be able to seek relief from unwanted telemarketing calls, as the Nation's first of its kind, Do Not Disturb initiative comes into action Today!

India's telecom regulator Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in June unveiled the "Telecom Unsolicited Commercial Communications Regulations 2007", putting in place a mechanism to curb unwanted telemarketing calls.

This will allow both cellphone and landline owners to register their numbers under the National Do Not Call (NDNC) database and will free them of recieveing Unsolicited Commercial Communications (UCC), including SMSes...

The Indian government's Department of Telecommunications had authorized the National Informatics Center (NIC) to oversee the installation, operation and maintenance of the NDNC registry.

Under the new regulation, telemarketers have to verify their list of telelphone numbers, which they will be using to call for telemarketing, with the NDNC registry before making a call. According to the directive, every telemarketer have to register themselves with the NDNC database to make sure that the list of numbers they have, does not include those numbers, which are present in the registry. An updated list will also be sent to the telemarketers every 15 days.

Subscribers can register their numbers free of charge, via SMS, phone, online or letter. Service providers have ten days to acknowledge such requests, which will be made effective within 45 days from the date of request.

Errant telemarketers will pay a fine of US$12.20 (500 rupee) per call to the subscriber as penalty, a bid to deter marketers from marking calls numbers registered in NDNC list. Recalcitrant telemarketers can also face disconnection of their telecom service. (Now that made some sense..... :-p)

5710 Xpress Music or 5700 Xpress Music Black Edition???

Oh man, this thing is making me crazy. 29th August, the day N95 8GB, N81, 5610 and 5310 were announced, in the early hours the photos of 5700 Black Edition swarmed the Internet, some said its 5710, the upgrade to the 5700 and some said its the same 5700 with just the Pure Black theme...

Now the point is that after hours of the news of release of 5700 Black or so called 5710 ,the photos and the news about it was removed... (??) And now there is no official information about that phone which swarmed the Internet and disappeared like a ghost. It brought a hope to have 5700 in Pure Black theme(Black is Beautiful), but now it seems we have to live with the girly Red and not so cool Grey...

Some Pics...

I just loved the design and the Black Look.... I hope its not a rumour and it exists actually........

Sky’s limit: Google Earth gets starry-eyed

After turning millions of Internet users into virtual explorers of the world with Google Earth, the Internet search giant is now hoping to turn many of them into virtual stargazers.
    Google is unveiling within Google Earth on Wednesday a new service called Sky that will allow users to view the skies as seen from Earth. Like Google Earth, Sky will let users fly around and zoom in, exposing increasingly detailed imagery of some 100 million stars and 200 million galaxies.

    “You will be able to browse into the sky like never before,” said Carol Christian, an astronomer with the Space Telescope Science Institute, a nonprofit academic consortium that supports the Hubble Space Telescope.
    While other programmes allow users to explore the skies, they typically combine a mix of representations of stars and galaxies that are overlaid with photographs, Christian said. “These are really the images of the sky. Everything is real.”
    The Sky imagery was stitched together from more than one mil
lion photographs from scientific and academic sources, including the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, the Palomar Observatory at the California Institute of Technology and the Nasa-financed Hubble.
    Google said that it developed the project strictly because some of its engineers were interested in it, and that it had no plans to make money from it for now. “It’s merely about getting new kinds of information out there for the public,” said Chikai Ohazama, a Google Earth project manager.
    As with Google Earth, individual users and organisations
will be able to overlay photographs, annotations and other kinds of data on top of Sky’s basic images and make them available to others as layers — called mash-ups.
    Sky already has layers showing various constellations, a user’s guide to galaxies, the position of planets two months into the future and animations of lunar positions. A “backyard astronomy” layer highlights stars, galaxies and nebulae that are visible to the naked eye, with binoculars or with small telescopes.

Gmail Turned GoogleMail in Britain!

So Google dropped the Gmail tag from the logo and new account address of its Email service, in UK, bowing to the demands of a small British firm that claims the US giant has infringed its trademark, lol!!
The name change applies only to UK users!

India Googled...

Google released fresh satellite images of New Delhi, South Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad as a part of its new initiative Google Earth. These images are available to anybody with access to the net, provide users with images of earth from Space, and its not enough, they have also released the most confidential images of Palam Airport, Delhi which is guarded by army personnel 24x7!
I think its rather dangerous to a country's privacy!
