Will your iPhone 5s or 5C work with 4G in India ?

Airtel has launched 4G in India.  But in the market there only few smartphones or devices support 4G. iPhone is one of the smartphones which support. But do you think your iphone will work with Airtel 4G? iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus support 4G. But condition is you must have purchased these iPhone from Apple Store in India. It should not be imported to India.

Yes, you read it right. If you have someone has gifted you iPhone from Outside India, 4G will not work on that iPhone. Reason is 4G is India having different frequency than other countries. Because of frequency mismatch 4G will not work in imported models of iPhone. 


If you want to check whether your iPhone is compatible to Indian 4G, then just check the model number of iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c at the back. In case of iPhone 5s, it should be A1530 and in case of iPhone 5c, it should be A1529, only then 4G will work in India in your iPhone. If it is something else, there are chances that Airtel 4G will not work.

In India, Airtel has launched  4G service at 2300 MHz. Very soon, Reliance 4G is going to be launched and everyone is expecting that Reliance 4G will work with all iPhone models no matter from these have been purchased  because Reliance is expected to launch 4G at the frequency of 1800 MHz.

WhatsApp Launches Voice Messaging Known as Push-To-Talk Service in its latest Update

With all the texting that people do these days, it’s naturally taken a messaging app to re-introduce the act of using our voices to communicate.

WhatsApp, the increasingly ubiquitous global messaging app, has launched “voice messaging,” a new feature that will let users record and send audio files with one tap on their smartphones. UPDATE: WhatsApp has announced the feature on its blog; the post includes a video demo, also embedded below.

The messaging company, which has 45 employees and is based in Mountain View, Calif., confirmed a report in AllThingsD that the service would allow users to press and hold the microphone on their keyboard to send a voice message, a bit like using a walkie-talkie.

Said to be a brainchild of the US-based company's co-founder and CEO Jan Koum, the new feature allows users to just hold to record a message and release to send it.

There is also a blue blinker notification that lets users know when the message is received. In case the user decides not to send the message, a swipe to the left and the recording is deleted. All this is built into a single tap. There is also no time-length limit for the recorded messages. Also, the volume automatically switches from speaker when held at arm's length to soft when held next to an ear.

Smart TV Users -- Get ready to be HACKED.......

Attackers can use embedded features, such as microphones, cameras, and lots of storage, to spy on people and steal their sensitive data.
Just like with mobile phones, the more advanced the common television gets, the more likely it can be turned against its users by attackers who can use embedded features, such as microphones, cameras, and lots of storage, to spy on people and steal their sensitive data. At Black Hat USA, two different presentations offered research on how these activities can be carried out against the current generations of Smart TVs
It's a troubling development for consumers because, as researcher Seungjin Lee with Korea University put it, when a home computer is hacked there is usually just one main victim. But if a home television is hacked and the camera trained on its watchers, that affects the whole family and invades the most private areas of the home. However, remote attacks against smart TVs aren't just a consumer concern.

Apple Offers Trade-In Program for Third-Party iPhone, iPad Adapters

Apple on Monday detailed a new program where owners of third-party iPhone, iPod and iPad adapters can trade their products in for an Apple charger for $10 — roughly half the typical price of a new Apple charger.

“Recent reports have suggested that some counterfeit and third party adapters may not be designed properly and could result in safety issues,” Apple said on a website announcing the program. “While not all third party adapters have an issue, we are announcing a USB Power Adapter Takeback Program to enable customers to acquire properly designed adapters.”

Google's Android Device Manager is clone of Apple's Find my Phone

It has taken a long time, but Android users will soon have a tool to help them locate misplaced phones and remotely wipe their data in case it’s lost or stolen.
Today, Google introduced Android Device Manager, which offers several different methods for dealing with a lost phone. With it, you can set off your phone’s ringer at maximum volume (even if your device is in silent mode) to help you try to locate it. 

You can also track your device in real time on a map. Finally, it gives you the ability to remotely erase all your data in case it’s truly lost or in the hands of a thief. While this type of feature has long been available on the iPhone and Windows Phone devices, Android owners have had to use third-party apps like Phone Locator and Lookout Mobile Security to get similar features.

New Zealand PM's website Hacked

WELLINGTON: The hacktivist group Anonymous on Tuesday briefly crashed New Zealand Prime Minister John Key's website in protest at plans to allow the country's intelligence agency to spy on local residents.

A group identifying itself as Anonymous NZ posted a clip on YouTube saying it had attacked Key's website and 12 others linked to the ruling National Party to show its opposition to "a despicable piece of legislation."

"John Key make no mistake the majority of New Zealanders oppose this bill," it said.

"Due to your own arrogance and your unwillingness to listen to the people we have decided to take direct action."

Key's website was operating normally by Tuesday afternoon and the prime minister condemned the hackers.

"(It's) pretty juvenile behaviour in my view," he told Radio New Zealand. "These people are obviously doing something that's both illegal and inappropriate. They're trying to make their own political point, but their point's wrong."

New Zealand's intelligence service, the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), is currently barred from spying on New Zealand citizens or residents.

Key argues the restriction should be removed so it can cooperate more closely with agencies such as the police and military in an increasingly complex cybersecurity environment.

The bill is currently before parliament and expected to pass by a single vote, although groups ranging from the Law Society to internet giants Facebook and Google have raised concerns about the proposal.

Indian develops technology to make software unhackable

WASHINGTON: A unique system has been designed by researchers that will encrypt software in order to make it impervious to reverse-engineering.

UCLA computer science professor Amit Sahaiand a team of researchers have developed a system which will only allow someone to use a programme as intended, while preventing any deciphering of the code behind it.

This is known as software obfuscation in computer science and it is the first time it has been accomplished.

Sahai said that the new system puts up an iron wall making it impossible for an adversary to reverse-engineer the software without solving mathematical problems that take hundreds of years to work out on today's computers.
