OnePlus might be anticipating the launch of the OnePlus 5 right now, but that doesnt mean it cant drive sales of the OnePlus 3T. The late 2016 handset is selling with a flurry of discounts right now, both via Amazon and OnePlus official store. Starting off with Amazon, the retailer is offering a discount of up to Rs 11,002 upon exchanging your existing smartphone. Bear in mind that the figure quoted by the seller is the maximum exchange price, and the actual discount may vary depending on the kind of device the user is exchanging. The official OnePlus Store in the country ( oneplusstore.in ) is offering a cashback of Rs 1,500 if customers purchase the product using an SBI Credit Card. This is an exciting promo to check out if you dont have a device to exchange. This cashback promo effectively brings down the cost of the handset to Rs 28,499.

Similarly, Suman Howladar, Founder, Foiwe Info Global Solutions, says that employees are not pushed to screen violent content from the word go but are put through a two-week training process, sensitising them about the scope of work. "We give gruesome content to only certain people in the organisation and in case they have issues, our HR helps puts them in less sensitive projects," says Howladar. AMBIGUOUS STANDARDS Another challenge that content moderators grapple with on a regular basis is the ambiguous standards that vary from country to country. "The concept of racism and nudity varies from client to client and even countries. What may sound abusive to Indians may not be true to Europeans," says Rao. For instance, clients from India are skittish about any form of nudity while a dating platform in the US is okay with partial nudity, where a user covers his or her private parts with hands.

5 million Android devices. So what does this malware do? Check Point claims that Judy basically creates fraudulent ad clicks on its apps to multiply revenues for the developers. The worst part is that the apps have been around for a couple of years now and were updated recently, telling us that the company has been fooling Googles security system for a couple of years. The fact that it can completely surpass Googles Bouncer system is worth pointing out as well. Heres what Check Point has to say on how Judy works - Once a user downloads a malicious app, it silently registers receivers which establish a connection with the [Command and Control] server. The server replies with the actual malicious payload, which includes JavaScript code, a user-agent string and URLs controlled by the malware author. The malware opens the URLs using the user agent that imitates a PC browser in a hidden webpage and receives a redirection to another website.

Recently, I witnessed an event in which the "protagonist" thought she was doing herself a favour when she marched into a telco, armed with nothing but causticity. At the service centre, she started firing like a machine gun. She had a valid grouse conveyed in the most unpleasant manner. She was so spikey with words and what was even more hurtful was the free flow of swear words that left the service assistant in tears. I was one of several customers present during the episode and it left me with an unpleasant feeling the entire day. Many of us think that when we become proficient in English, it gives us an edge over the less proficient ones and we take great pride in throwing uncouth words. The language serves the very purpose of the user and when we use English a certain decorum has to be observed. Steering slightly off-course, I was at a dinner recently and someone from the group was talking about how important Mandarin was going to be in the near future and then on and this was in the context of the OBOR/ Silk Road symposium in China.

And Bob said, “Oh no, it’s a great thing. It humanizes him; it’s fabulous.” I did find a man, who is alive right now, named Bob Shrum who is Catholic and was adviser to John F. Kennedy and also a Democrat. He is mentioned a couple of times in the Wikileaks e-mails addressed and CC’d to John Podesta: https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/45269 https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/40531 Here are some religious themed articles he has written: (The Daily Beast) HowReligious FreedomIs Hurting Everyone’s Freedom (David Mixner) Robert Shrum: Catholic Church Has A Right To Its Faith But Not To Impose It On Others Bob Shrum In a book written by Sydney Blumenthal, ‘The Clinton Wars’, I found an acknowledgment of John and Tony Podesta and also Bob Shrum: “I thank especially John Podesta for his encouragement throughout.” “I appreciate the stalwart support I recieved during these recent years from many people, including James Carville, John Emerson, Mark Penn, Tony Podesta , Bob Shrum …” I have already been told to stop by a user on Reddit using what appears to be a throwaway account: As an interesting synchronicity, I was driving to check on someone’s home that is out of town and I saw this: As we hear from those brave whistle-blowers and Satanic Ritual Abuse survivors like Cathy O’Brian the higher-levels of the government involved in pedophilia was in full swing at that time and even before that so I wouldnt be surprised if they were involved in that.

I know some people who still hasnt done this switch in their careers and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. As long as you love what you do, nothing else matters. One thing to remember though is there is no ultimate goal in our field, everything depends on what do you wanna do with your career. Image by Ruthson Zimmerman What is UI and UX? Here we go! In the simplest explanation, UI is about what you see and UX is all about what you feel as a user and user experience. This role means that you’re juggling between both what’s visual and the overall experience. It’s one big giant role to be in and some companies do in fact mixed it all up (between UI and UX) which is not always right. From creating your visual path for each screen, page or elements and by the same time following what has been done on the UX side of things. On top of that, you’ll be working at creating style guides and ensuring a design language across the board.

NEW DELHI: Reliance Jio Infocomm is working towards a commercial launch of its home broadband services around Diwali, with offers that are likely to stir up a price war similar to that the company’s entry triggered in the mobile segment, a person with knowledge of the plan said. The base pack from JioFiber, the company’s home broadband operations, is likely to be 100 GB of data for Rs 500. Rivals currently offer about half that data at double the price. Based on customer base, home broadband is a small market — the country has less than 20 million wireline broadband users, with state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam accounting for more than half of it, compared with 200 million users for wireless broadband. But the average user pays much more for fixed-line broadband. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, for instance, Bharti Airtel’s average revenue per user in the home broadband segment was Rs 1,064 against Rs 162 in the mobile data business.

This story was originally published in 2014. We're resurfacing it today because, well, it's a Bank Holiday and we thought you'd enjoy a geeky blast from the Internet past. A few days ago, my wife messaged me a photo from a thrift shop with the question, "You want?" The picture was of a box of software still in shrinkwrapSPRY Inc.'s Internet in a Box for Windows 95. The answer was an obvious "OMG YES." I reviewed Internet in a Box back in 1993 when it was first released as an early adopter of independent local Internet dialup (using David Troy's Toad.Net ). I spent endless hours connected with the software and my very first laptop PC, pulling down Hubble Telescope images from the Space Telescope Science Institute's Gopher server and raging at Usenet posts. Just the sight of the logo caused a wave of nostalgia to wash over me. It was a simpler time, a somewhat less user-friendly time. CompuServe was still a thing. Read 11 remaining paragraphs | Comments
