Finally, India taste victory in Australia

Melbourne: Finally, India tasted victory in the ongoing series after an 8-wicket win against Australia in the second and final T20 international at the MCG on Friday. Needing 132 to win and to avoid another humiliating whitewash, India reached the target with the loss of 2 wickets and 2 balls to spare in front of a 62,275-strong MCG crowd. The victory was more special as it ended India’s losing streak on foreign soil which stretches to 16 matches.

The timing of the win was significant as India could now go into the tri-series on a high as they were awaited by another strong contender Sri Lanka apart from Australia.

It all began with Gambhir, who took a catch to remove ‘Serial Switcher’, also a dangerous hitter, David Warner, and ends with him scoring the winning run. He drove off McKay to mid-on for four to seal the first win of the tour.

The foundation for the victory was laid by India’s fielders, who turned top-class overnight. A special credit to Ravindra Jadeja, who was phenomenal on the field with two run outs and a spell reading 3-0-16-1. He was later adjudged Man-of-the-Match.

Lenovo Yoga Gives Notebook

Lenovo  unveiled its IdeaPad Yoga recently at CES, showing off a notebook with a 360 degree hinge designed to be used in a variety of ways in addition to the conventional laptop style.

The Ultrabook, which will run on Windows 8, can be opened and folded back on itself to be used as a tablet or e-reader with touchscreen capabilities. It can also be propped up like a tent for a better video watching experience, for example, or used as a traditional laptop.

Convertible tablets aren't a new idea, but on the Yoga, the hinges are designed to be sturdier than the swivels used in the past. When it's flipped and used as a tablet, the keyboard deactivates, so it can be placed on a flat surface or used on the go without worrying about hitting a key. The palm rest has a leathery surface so it can rest firmly and easily while being used as a tablet, and the whole device has a rubbery coating for durability.

CES 2012: The End of Planned

AT&T threw a curve ball at its keynote when it announced this Titan refresh would be hitting the states with support for 4G LTE -- a much welcomed first for devices running Microsoft's Mango OS. And as if access to those sweet wireless speeds wasn't enough, HTC's leapfrogged its US competition by beefing up the camera module on this 4.7-incher, bumping it to 16 megapixels with an f/2.6 lens and setting a new standard for imaging on stateside handsets. Unfortunately, that signature, elegant build has gone by the wayside, replaced here by a more traditional encasing.

This year’s Consumer Electronics Show was just as large and incomprehensible as ever; thousands of vendors, more than 100,000 attendees (140K by one estimate), acres of show floor to walk and dozens upon dozens of behind-closed-door meetings. That was CES. Yet, that was not the story of CES 2012. It was, as I see it, a collection of evolutionary product changes and, perhaps, the beginning of the end of planned obsolescence.

Introducing Android 4.0

Focused on bringing the power of Android to the surface, Android 4.0 makes common actions more visible and lets you navigate with simple, intuitive gestures. Refined animations and feedback throughout the system make interactions engaging and interesting. An entirely new typeface optimized for high-resolution screens improves readability and brings a polished, modern feel to the user interface.

Virtual buttons in the System Bar let you navigate instantly to Back, Home, and Recent Apps. The System Bar and virtual buttons are present across all apps, but can be dimmed by applications for full-screen viewing. You can access each application's contextual options in the Action Bar, displayed at the top (and sometimes also at the bottom) of the screen.

Multitasking is a key strength of Android and it's made even easier and more visual on Android 4.0. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently — tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.

Samsung C9000 LCD LED TV

A variety of new features greatly enhance the accessibility of Android 4.0 for blind or visually impaired users. Most important is a new explore-by-touch mode that lets you navigate without having to see the screen. Touching the screen once triggers audible feedback that identifies the UI component below; a second touch in the same component activates it with a full touch event. The new mode is especially important to support users on new devices that use virtual buttons in the System Bar, rather than dedicated hardware buttons or trackballs. Also, standard apps are updated to offer an improved accessibility experience. The Browser supports a script-based screen reader for reading favorite web content and navigating sites. For improved readability, you can also increase the default font size used across the system.

The accessibility experience begins at first setup — a simple touch gesture during setup (clockwise square from upper left) activates all accessibility features and loads a setup tutorial. Once accessibility features are active, everything visible on the screen can be spoken aloud by the standard screen
