Ultrabook Vs. Laptop

Ever since Intel announced the concept of ultrabook, the tech giants has started manufacturing this evolved form of laptops and today you can see them dominating the market. These ultrabook has bought revolution in the market as the future of laptops and are said to replace the netbooks and tablets. If you are planning to buy one of these forms of laptop first know which suites your usage better.

[B]1. Totally Different[/B]

Ultrabooks are totally different from laptops. They are lighter, faster, thinner and more portable than regular laptops. Ultrabooks are made with specific guidelines; they should be within the 20 mm thickness, highly powerful with lower power consumption using Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors.

[B]2. Portability[/B]

Portability is the main difference between ultrabook and a laptop, without compromising the performance. The display size is as same as the laptops in various sizes. But ultrabooks are mainly concentrated to be slim and lightweight, within 20 mm thickness and not more than 1.4 kilogram. Well the laptops are also reducing weights and competing with ultrabooks with weighing just 1.5 kilogram.

[B]3. Storage[/B]

Ultrabooks comes with the next generation Solid-State Drive (SSD) as a primary storage instead for traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDD) as seen in the regular laptops. The SSD is a good option for ultrabooks as they provide a quick boot time, faster data read and write speed and is very silent. While HDD take more time to read and write data, makes annoying spinning sound and produce more heat. 

[B]4. Display[/B]

Ultrabooks are available in multiple display sizes from 11, 13, 14 inch and even higher. Ultrabooks are surely the laptop or desktop replacement. But as per the Intel’s ultrabook concept; the display size of an actual ultrabook should be 11 or 13 inch. Within this size the ultrabook feel more portable and comfortable to handle. Laptop also comes with various sizes form 13, 14, 15 inch and some laptops go even higher up to 19 and 20 inches. But carrying a bulky 20 inch laptop doesn’t sound so good.

[B]5. Battery Life[/B]

Battery life has been improved in the ultrabooks as it uses the low volt Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors. Not all ultrabook comes with better battery life, but comparing to laptops most of the ultrabooks have improvised battery without compromising the performance and thickness.

[B]6. Price[/B]

Well laptops has a starting price of Rs.25000 and ultrabooks has a starting price of Rs.50,000. Of course ultrabook are very expensive because of its elegant design, portability, slim and faster processing, but the decisive factor should be taken after knowing that the basic functionality of both ultrabook and laptop are same; you just have to make-up your mind on how much you’re ready pay more for speed, style and portability.

WhatsApp is illegal, will soon banned in India : Government

WhatsApp could have accidentally entered into troubled waters here in India by enabling its end-to-end encryption for all. The new security feature by WhatsApp is not what is required by the Indian telecom rules and WhatsApp could face a ban, if the rules are not adhered to. But not yet.
In India, companies need to follow the country’s rules and adhere to specific types of encryption, which WhatsApp does not currently use. WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption on its chat service means that WhatsApp or anyone else won’t be able to crack open its contents.  Only the sender and the recipient are able to read the encrypted data. WhatsApp uses a 256-bit key for encryption of all chat messages, which is only known to the sender and the recipient.
Why is it not possible for WhatsApp to help decrypt users’ messages? "No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us," WhatsApp founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton wrote on their blog. How…

3 Mega Acquisitions in last week affects the Internet Space of India

Qihoo 360 buys Opera in $1.2 Billion Opera Software intends to accept a $1.2 billion acquisition offer from a group of Chinese companies. The Chinese consortium includes Internet security company Qihoo 360, Internet firm Beijing Kunlun (which invested roughly$93 millioninto Grindr earlier in the year) and investment group Golden Brick and Yonglian. According to Opera, the $1.2 billion is a 56 percent premium over Opera's share price during the last 30 trading days. Despiteclaiming350 million users, the company's browser has struggled in the oversaturated Western market. China could be a profitable arena for Opera, in part because Google's Chrome browserdoes not come preinstalled on Android phones in China like it does elsewhere. In addition, doing business in China without local partners is nigh impossible, but Opera could leverage the networks of Kunlun and Qihoo 360 if the deal goes through.
