Xiaomi Redmi 1S Goes on Sale Tuesday in Seventh Flash Sale on Flipkart

Posted by News Room On Monday, October 20, 2014 0 comments
Xiaomi will on Tuesday hold the seventh flash sale for its Redmi 1S smartphones in India, via Flipkart. The company had announced the sale last week, after a successfulsixth flash sale, and Flipkart’s Big Billion Day sale the week before that.
Notably, the Chinese company has yet to announce how many Redmi 1S smartphones will go on sale Tuesday, unlike previous flash sales where Xiaomi had announced numbers as much as a week in advance.
The Flipkart registration page only warns interested buyers that one smartphone will be available for sale per email ID

The sixth Redmi 1S flash sale saw 1,00,000 units go on sale for the first time, and the company later announced the smartphones had gone ‘out of stock’ in 4.2 seconds. Xiaomi had made 1,50,000 units available for Flipkart’s Big Billion Day sale – the first Xiaomi sale in India not requiring registration.
The fifth flash sale saw 60,000 Redmi 1S smartphones going out of stock in 13.9 seconds. The fourth flash sale saw 60,000 Redmi 1S units going out of STOCK in 5.2 seconds. 40,000 smartphones went out of STOCK in just 3.4 seconds in the third flash sale, a good second faster than the second flash sale, which saw 40,000 smartphones go ‘out of stock’ in 4.5 seconds, meanwhile the first flash sale saw 40,000 units going ‘out of stock’ in just 4.2 seconds.
The company last week also announced an OTA (over-the-air) roll-out of a system update for the Redmi 1S, including fixes for major bugs that according to Xiaomi were reported by a large number of users.
Xiaomi’s Vice President of International Operations, Hugo Barra, last week in an interview revealed the new Redmi Note can be expected to launch in India within the next two months. He said, “A date is not decided yet. Hopefully we will have devices ready to sell in the next two months.”
Barra couldn’t confirm an India launch date for the company’s latest flagship, the Mi 4. “We don’t have a date for Mi 4 yet. I am going to stick with what I said earlier which is still the plan -launch it late December 2014 or early January 2015. I don’t think the Redmi Note would conflict with Mi 4 even if we launch them together.”

Sony Reveals PS4 Remote Play Support for Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet!

Posted by News Room On 0 comments
Sony’s PS4 Remote Play feature for its Xperia smartphones and tablets, introduced alongside the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact at the company’s pre-IFA 2014 event, seems set to be released for the last generation Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet devices next month.
The Japanese giant accidentally revealed PS4 Remote Play support for the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet on its official Xperia Lounge app (via Xperia Blog). “Functionality [PS4 Remote Play] available on Sony Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact, Z2 and Z2 Tablet starting from November 2014,” stated a note in the app.
The roll-out of PS4 Remote Play on the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 does not come as too much of a surprise as there is not too much difference between the current and last generation. Notably however, Sony when announcing the feature last month said it’s currently not planning to bring the PS4 Remote Play to other smartphone or tablet devices, pointing to the possibility that the mention of support for the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet in the Xperia Lounge app is a mistake.
The PS4 Remote Play feature allows users to stream their PS4 games onto compatible Xperia devices over their home Wi-Fi network (or even a high-speed Internet connection, though Sony doesn’t recommend this). A DualShock 4 Wireless Controller, PlayStation 4 console with the latest PS4 system software update, Sony Entertainment Network access, and the PS4 Remote Play app or PlayStation app installed on the Xperia will be required to play games.
Sony had at launch noted that some games do not support the PS4 Remote Play feature. The company has also introduced the GCM10 Game Control Mount, which will essentially make it easier for users to play PS4 games on their Xperia Z3 family of devices – by holding the tablet or smartphone along with the controller while gaming.
The PS4 Remote Play feature was first introduced as a way to boost PS4 games from the console to the PlayStation Vita handheld console in April, along with the PS4 v1.70 system software update, and the PS Vita v3.15 system software update – which included Automatic Device Registration for access to Remote Play and other second screen features.

Dell India announced the launch of their ‘Dell Campassadors’ program and a strategic partnership with INKtalks, an organization which aims to inspire youth, particularly in emerging economies. The association was born out of Dell’s dedicated focus towards the college student community, who not only exhibits a dynamic use of personal technology, but is also advocates for the adoption of new technologies. With this partnership, Dell aims to engage college students through campus ambassadors in a year-long conversation with Dell & INKtalks to foster a strong sense of social orientation and bring student communities together to share knowledge and ideas with peers and work on collaborative projects, all to prepare them for real life challenges.
This PAN India college student engagement program aims at creating a deeper engagement with youth through college campus ambassadors, known as ‘Dell Campassadors’, in over 50 colleges that specialise in engineering/management/science and humanities across 9 cities. Each college will have 2 Campassadors who will be the key drivers and coordinators for their college and student body engagement with Dell and INKtalks. Participating colleges will have the opportunity to partake in several youth led activities including INK Stream where selected institutions across India will be able to witness the much anticipated INK Conference 2014 in its entirety, through a high definition live stream from their own college campus.  The INK Conference is an annual event, where CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, and more gather under one roof for three days of complete immersion in each other’s ideas, stories and perspectives – creating a platform for innovation. This year the conference is scheduled to be held from October 31st – November 2nd 2014
.
Dell has been very vocal among the student community and has successfully sustained annual programs such as ‘Back to College,’ an initiative to creatively empower college-going students both inside and outside the classroom by enabling students to seamlessly merge their offline and online lives. The tie up with INKtalks is an extension of Dell’s Back to College initiative and reflects Dell’s continued focus and engagement with the youth. Dell has consistently engaged with the youth in the past, with initiatives like ‘Achieve with Dell’ and ‘I Can Do Kuch Bhi’ which inspired the youth to unlock possibilities and achieve their ambitions, using personal technology as an enabler.
Dell Campassadors offers a platform for the creative, intelligent and energetic youth to work towards further developing their skills while giving them an opportunity to prepare as leaders. As a Dell Campassadors, they will be representatives of the brand Dell on their campus. They will also have the opportunity to organise and participate in various fun activities and events and will get a chance to earn incentives and rewards based on their performance, as well as participate in various engagements with Dell and INKtalks throughout the year. The program also offers the Campassadors a unique learning and growth opportunity through the Dell and INKtalks teams who will guide and mentor and provide first hand industry information to the selected Dell Campassadors. The Campassadors will periodically be evaluated at multiple levels based on their involvement, contributions & engagement with peers, before they face a final evaluation at the end of the year. Apart from the final evaluation, each region will recognise a Flamethrower Award winner every quarter. Two award winners also stand to win an internship at Dell at the end of the year.
Ritu Gupta, Marketing Director, Consumer and Small Business, Dell India said, “At Dell we believe that technology is a key enabler for driving personal and professional growth. The college student community are at the cusp of realising their potential and as a brand we are keen to help them take that next step towards becoming future leaders. We believe that our collaboration with INKtalks, an organization whose objectives align with ours, to motivate and inspire the youth, will help us engage students at their most energetic and aspirational growth stage. In addition this platform is designed to provide the Dell Campassadors valuable exposure and learning opportunities to prepare them for real world challenges.

McAfee Announces Next Generation Firewall

Posted by News Room On 0 comments
McAfee, part of Intel Security, announced the latest release of McAfee Next Generation Firewall, which now seamlessly integrates with several key McAfee solutions and technologies, offering businesses and government agencies an ever-expanding ecosystem of threat defenses.  Important new integrations with the McAfee Security Connected framework provide McAfee Next Generation Firewall customers with layered protection against the latest threats and evasions, along with improved workflows and operational efficiencies.
“Earlier this year, McAfee outlined our game-changing approach to strengthening network security through a powerful combination of integrated technologies,” said Pat Calhoun, general manager of network security at McAfee, part of Intel Security.  “This release represents another significant milestone in bringing that strategy to fruition and further empowers our customers with the tools they need to outmaneuver attackers with even greater ease and precision.”
A recent Vanson Bourne study commissioned by McAfee revealed that companies with multiple, siloed security solutions often present security postures that are easily compromised, putting them at greater risk for a data breach. According to the study in UK, France, Germany and the US, 43% of IT decision makers at large companies (more than 1,000 employees) believe that point security solutions that don’t share information can lead to threats going unnoticed. Nearly half (46%) stated that siloed security also causes their IT departments to spend too much time manually discovering and remediating threats.
Utilizing actionable endpoint information from McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, McAfee Next Generation Firewall customers will now see operational efficiency benefits with valuable insights into endpoint security postures and simplified administrative workflows when investigating incidents.  Integration with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager improves security posture, reduces event response times, and enables continuous monitoring and alerting of compliance status.  McAfee Advanced Threat Defense integration provides real time protection against rapidly mutating malware and zero-day attacks.  And lastly, reputation intelligence from McAfee Global Threat Intelligence enables McAfee Next Generation Firewall to provide superior protection against globally active advanced threats and malware.
“Today our customers require network security solutions that can keep pace with the way advanced attacks are now orchestrated, all with minimal complexity and an affordable price tag,” said Neil Campbell, Group General Manager, Security at Dimension Data.  “With its Security Connected framework, McAfee is aiming to address each of these requirements as it brings its entire ecosystem of security technologies together and now incorporates a true next generation firewall.”
