In yet another move, to make the e-ticketing system more convenience to thier customer, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has launched the IMPS ( Interbank Mobile Payment Service) for its customer in the e-ticketing site
IMPS is a merchant payment system, which allows customers to make instant,24*7, interbank payments to merchants or enterprises via mobile phone.

So, even if one does not have a Credit Card/Debit Card or a net banking facility he may still be able to book a rail e-ticket making the payment through the IMPS in IRCTC's website.
Customer, who is a mobile banking user of any bank, in the IMPS network,can make the payment to a merchant in the network through IMPS. This payment option, therefore, will make railway ticket booking much easierand safer to use.
Explaining the working of system, he said, " A customer gets himself registered linking his mobile number with his bank account. He then gets an MMID (Mobile Money Identifier), a 7-digit number from the bank. The combination of the mobile number and the MMID is unique for a particular account.
He also gets an M-PIN (Mobile PIN), which is a secret password from the bank. The customer needs to authenticate his transactions using the M-PIN.
He has to download the mobile banking application or use SMS /USSD facility provided by the bank.
The transaction is then performed with his MMID and M-PIN, using mobile banking application or SMS / USSD facility
IMPS charges are kept at Rs. 5 for transaction amount of up to Rs. 5000/- and Rs. 10 for transaction amount of more than Rs. 5000/.

In giving the thumbs-up to Google's acquisition of Motorola, regulators in China stipulated that Google must make Android free and open for five years, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed with CNET today.
The stipulation would seem to be designed to keep Google from denying Motorola's handset competitors access to the mobile operating system, or from giving Motorola an advantage of some sort -- such as integration between its handsets and Android that's tighter than connections between rival phones and the OS.
From the beginning, Google has taken an open approach with Android, making it free and available to any hardware manufacturer -- a strategy that's helped to quickly make Android the No. 1 mobile OS globally.
"Many hardware partners have contributed to Android's success and we look forward to continuing our work with all of them on an equal basis to deliver outstanding user experiences," Google CEO Larry Page said during a conference call last August, at the time the intended acquisition was announced. "We built Android as an open-source platform and it will stay that way."

 Still, despite the offering of such olive branches, and despite Android's great success as an open OS, Motorola rivals may well have been nervous. "Any way (Google) tries to couch this, there's no doubt Motorola is the most favored player," Gartner analyst Michael Gartenberg told CNET's Roger Cheng in August. "If I'm a third-party vendor, I have some real concerns here."
That's in part because it could have at least crossed Google's mind to integrate its software and services more tightly with the Motorola hardware, following Apple's end-to-end approach with its own hardware and services.
Apple uses the sale of its iPhones and iPads to drive sales of iTunes, the App store, iCloud, and other offerings. Google, of course, has its own services -- Google Drive, Google+, and so on -- and a Google-focused Android device could further push subscribers to them. Ultimately, it's these services that are the money-makers for Google. Fragmentation of Android is another concern, and a dominant, tightly integrated Android handset might help to address that.
What, then, would rival phone makers do? There aren't many alternatives to Android. Windows Phone might become a more attractive option, but then, Microsoft has a cozy relationship with Nokia, so it could be deja vu all over again. Here's what CNET's Maggie Reardon had to say back in August, in a discussion of the merger's possible impact on consumers:

The “socialification” of Google products continues with some very cool tweaks announced by the Gmail team. The product has improved its contact search and will now surface more information about them, such as previous email conversations as well as a photo and their Google+ profile link.
Here’s what the team had to say about it today:
When you search for an email address, the search results will now show you contact details in addition to that person’s profile photo and the emails sent from and to them. From here, you can start a chat, call their phone and more. Plus, if your contacts have a Google+ profile, this information will stay up to date automatically.
You can get to these same results in a variety of ways including the people widget, contacts and the chat list search menu.
contactdetails 520x84 Gmail now surfaces more information about contacts and circles when you search for them

By surfacing this type of information and contact choices, you can now set off any number of actions when you’re looking for the person that you’d like to have a conversation with. You can of course email them, call them, or chat over text and video.

In addition to adding contact details to search results, we’ve made some improvements to the circles integration announced in December. When you select a circle, you’ll now see profile photos of people in that circle at the top right of the page. Plus, when you click on these images you’ll be taken directly to search results with contact details.

circles 520x74 Gmail now surfaces more information about contacts and circles when you search for them
Circles are also now supported in search and filters. Find messages from a specific circle by typing circle:[circle name] in the search box. You can also find mail from any of your circled contacts by searching with has:circle. You can refine your search even further with other criteria and create filters based on circles. This means you can now view all the unread emails from your ‘Friends’ circle or automatically star every message that comes from your ‘VIP’ circle.

circlesearch Gmail now surfaces more information about contacts and circles when you search for them
This makes Circles not only a “Google+ thing”, but a product-wide tool to interact with groups of people. All of these changes make absolute sense when you think about how often you use Google’s email product. For most of us, we have Gmail up in a tab throughout the entire day, making it a perfect hub for socializing.

It might not be a feature that everyone uses day to day, but it’s a welcome one nonetheless: Google has added a native translate feature to Gmail that will translate any emails you receive into English. It’s not a new feature, first making an appearance in the Gmail labs back in 2009, but now it’s passed rigorous testing and been unleashed so that everyone can enjoy it.

It’ll come in handy for those doing business in a foreign language, or maybe those with penpals flung across the far reaches of the globe. Google detailed the feature on its blog back in 2009, saying: “If all parties are using Gmail, you can have entire conversations in multiple languages with each participant reading the messages in whatever language is most comfortable for them.”
If you’re not super psyched about the new feature, or are a cunning linguist, that you can disable it when it starts rolling out automatically to users over the next few days. Gmail says that the translate feature however was one of the most popular in the Labs, so it makes sense that they would roll it out on a wider scale.

April 2012 search engine market share

The search engine market in April 2012 is basically a tale of three companies - Google, Yahoo and Microsoft. Our pie charts show the share of overall searches for each company, using figures from digital research provider Hitwise.
Google enjoys the bulk of the UK search engine market share, handling 90.44 per cent of all queries, light years ahead of Yahoo with 2.51 per cent and Microsoft with 3.92 per cent. Across the Atlantic, it's slightly more balanced. Google's US search engine market share is still very healthy at 61 per cent, but it's not completely out of sight for Yahoo with 17 per cent and Microsoft with 15 per cent

Google - a winning formula

It has been a heady rise for Google. Many people struggle to believe that precocious students Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded the company as recently as September 1998. Using a friend's garage as their base of operations, they only settled on a name after misspelling the maths term 'googol'. Despite such unpromising omens, Google's combination of clever algorithms, advanced search operators and sophisticated ad programs like AdWords quickly propelled it to the top of the search engine market. It has stayed there ever since.

So this is the state of the search engine market in 2012 - Google is dominating, Yahoo is struggling and Microsoft is growing

Samsung Electronics overtook Nokia as the world’s largest mobile phone maker by sales in the first quarter and regained the top spot from Apple in the fast-growing smartphone market, according to analysts.

In the first quarter for a 25.4 per cent share of the global mobile phone market, market researcher Strategy Analytics estimated. That surpassed Nokia’s 22.5 per cent market share on sales of 82.7m phones, and Apple’s 9.5 per cent slice. 
Samsung’s performance in the first quarter ended a 14-year run for Nokia as the world’s top vendor of handsets.

Tech company Datawind launched Ubislate tablets in India priced at Rs 2,999 and Rs 3,999, respectively for resistive and capacitive screen versions.
These  tablets having configuration as Ubislate tablets, i.e, a 800 MHz Cortex A8 processors on Android 2.3 platform.

The tablets will be available by May-end only after we have fulfilled the existing orders," said Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO of Datawind.

For internet access, Datawind has tied up with Aircel, which will offer an unlimited internet plan at Rs 98 per month on 2G/GPRS for the Ubislate tablets.
The Ubislate7c (capacitive touch) tablets priced at Rs 4000 will carry an internal flash memory of 4GB. The resistive versions will carry internal memory of 2GB and will be priced at Rs 2,999.
The tablets will carry one standard USB port. "Our customers who made pre-payments for earlier version of the tablet will get the upgraded version," Tuli added. He said that a break up with Quad has jeopardised the delivery schedule for the tablets, and he is looking for more suppliers.

Google Drive, the company's long-anticipated answer to Dropbox and similar cloud storage services, has finally "shifted into gear." The service is not yet available to everyone; some users, instead of seeing a signup link on the Google Drive site, might see a notice that says "Your Google Drive is not ready yet" with the option to "Notify me." But if it is ready, it's time for you to say goodbye to Google Docs, the company's cloud-based office suite, with features comparable to a slimmed-down Microsoft Office. 

That's because it's now part of Google Drive

"Google Drive gives you instant access to Google Docs," the Google Drive website says, "a suite of editing tools that makes working together better". Screenshots on a page for web app developers show the familiar Google Docs interface, with the list of items and "Create" button. But the range of things you can create now no longer includes tables, and has been expanded to include websites, which are powered by Google Sites.

Google Chrome integration 

If you are using the Google Chrome browser, there may be options to create even more things, depending on what apps you have installed from the Chrome Web Store. Web app developers can tie their apps in to Google Drive, letting you see all the things you've created through them -- like Lucidchart diagrams -- in your Google Drive, alongside the documents, spreadsheets, and presentations you've already created in Google Docs.
If you have a web app installed in Chrome that's able to open a file in your Google Drive, you can tell it to "Open with" that web app. For instance, if you have the Aviary photo editor installed, you can use it to edit a picture directly from Google Drive.

The Skype app for Windows Phone finally grew up today and broke out of its “Beta” shell and graduated to Version 1.0. As of today you can now head on over to the Windows Phone Store and download Skype for your Windows Phone.

The free download is available for all Windows Phone 7.5 or higher phones and will work over both Wi-Fi and 3G. Skype was originally available as a Beta app on the store since last February, so just under two months later it’s hit Version 1.0.

Version 1.0 now adds the ability to search for and add new contacts as well as the ability to call landlines.

Skype 1.0 Windows Phone Skype App Hits Version 1.0

However there is still one major draw back to this app. For some reason or another, there is no support for background calling with the app. In other words, the only way you can receive a call is if you have the app open and running, you can’t let it run in the background and receive calls that way as you can on the iPhone and Android devices which is rather disappointing.

Besides new hardware coming from HTC and Nokia, Windows Phone has been kind of stagnant in the new lately, but things may be heating up very soon based on a report over on Mi Móvile Windows, Microsoft and carriers may be readying the ‘Tango’ update for Windows Phone this June.
The Tango update is believed to be a small update aimed at bringing Windows Phone down to a lower price point and emerging markets. Microsoft has yet to speak officially about a release date for the update, but based on two, unnamed sources of Mi Móvile Windows, the build (8773) is just over a month away. It will be interesting to see if the Tango rollout goes as smoothly and a swiftly as did the larger, more important Mango update did last year.

While Microsoft announced the different editions of Windows 8 that will be available today, they also confirmed that Windows Server 8 will now be called “Windows Server 2012″ and have committed to launching it by the end of this year.
At Microsofts’ Management Summit, Corporate Vice President Brad Anderson spoke to around 5,000 IT professionals about the opportunities provided by Microsoft to deliver fast and reliable services with cloud computing. He announced Microsoft System Center 2012 which is now available for purchase. It allows users to set up their own secure private cloud network.
In conjunction with this, he also announced that Windows Server 2012 is a “fully cloud optimised OS” that will integrate very well with cloud computing. He claimed that “nothing Microsoft has ever done has ever been as ambitious” as the features that have been incorporated into Windows Server 2012.

cloud Microsoft Confirms Windows Server 2012   Launching This Year

Microsoft released Windows Server 2012 back in March, around the same time as the Windows 8 Consumer Preview was released to the public. Of course, there hasn’t been half as much coverage of Windows Server 2012 because as we all know, the corporate side of things is never as glamours as the consumer side.
Since Microsoft are expected to release Windows 8 this year, and now they’ve gone and promised that Windows Server 2012 will also be released this year, I can only assume that they will be releasing them around the same time. Of course Windows 8 will be launched to a massive marketing campaign, where as Windows Server 2012 will be a small little side note for the corporate scene to pick up on.

It’s official. Microsoft has ended support for two legacy flagship products: XP and office 2003. Both are now over 10 years old, and as Microsoft said
“Windows XP and Office 2003 were great software releases for their time, but the technology environment has shifted. Technology continues to evolve and so do people’s needs and expectations. Modern users demand technologies that fit their personal workstyle and allow them to stay productive anywhere anytime, while businesses have an ever increasing need to protect data and ensure security, compliance and manageability. It is in a company’s – and its employees’ – best interest to take advantage of the modern Windows and Office software that is designed with these needs in mind.”


When XP was released, it was coming from the debacle of Millennium, an OS that didn’t strike it well with consumers. But with the release of Windows XP, Microsoft changed the environment and showed that a stable and workable OS was still in the vision of Microsoft. This in turn started the evolution within Microsoft to enhance the OS and they did that with several updates, service packs, and the continuous support of hardware devices and software drivers from numerous companies. To it’s credit, it formed the environment that showed Microsoft how to develop a workable OS that consumers would buy and use. This makes you wonder though about why Vista was released with all of the problems that it had. It was a stumbling block, which, however, was recouped with Windows 7.

Office 2003

Similarly, when Office 2003 was released, a new office suite made its mark which tied together many separate products and now information could be tied together. Kudos. This laid the foundation for Office 2007 and Office 2010. The ability to tie the different products together made it possible for users to use one product for all of their business office operations.
But for both of these products, their time has come and gone. It is now time to upgrade. Fortunately there are several ways to do this. One is to buy the software version Windows7 and Office 2007 or Office 2010. The other alternative is to use Azure Cloud to get the software that you need and run the software operations on the cloud.

We’d previously heard AT&T’s White Lumia 900 was slated for a release on April 22nd, but photos sent to Mobility Digest from readers — much like yourself — would suggest the Mango device is up for grabs now. By the looks of it, at least a pair of customers were able to walk into a Rethink Possible shop and grab a pale piece of the Lumia pie for themselves. Naturally, AT&T’s site still doesn’t have the Windows Phone handset listed, while the Cyan flavor remains out of stock. Perhaps, now it’s a good time to head to your local AT&T store and cough up those 99 bucks, or get it gratis through tomorrow. Be sure to drop us a line if you were able to take one of Nokia’s own unicorns home with you.

We know what you’re thinking: It’s white. But the truth is, there’s something intangible about these snow-colored slabs that cause humans to lavishly drool. This time the sole culprit is LG’s Optimus 4X HD, which appears to have found a way into the hands of a seller on Taiwanese site ePrice. Aside from being dressed in a different outfit than the first time we took it for a spin, not much has changed under that quad-core hood, meaning it’s still sporting a flavor of Android 4.0 while also retaining its renown 8.9mm slim figure. Chances are this isn’t enough eye candy for you, though, so we’re hooking you up with a video of this unicorn in discrete action after the break.
