Intel's Digital Skills for India

There won’t be any surprise if anyone thinks about technology development at the moment but it is an achievement from just someone’s effort from any part of the world who contributed their idea’s, energy and time on technology innovation and development where we are now in. 

Yes, it is also applies for Intel giant microprocessor and chipset manufacturer and leader. There were just few heads who tried to invent something new which is helpful for many across globe at present and in the near future. Intel heads are none other than Intel pioneer and founder for semi-conductor Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore and Andrew Grove.

First we will know the basic difference between Analog and Digital Electronics.

Analog: Translating info into electric pulses varying amp
Digital: Translating info into binary format (0 or 1) each varying two different amplitudes.

Integrated Electronic (Intel) and their heads have achieved milestones continuously for the past few decades and till date on various chipset products. Yes, microprocessor giant Intel has various achievement in the past and present beside its view on future development on every sector including eGovernance. It is hard to count their success, achievement and innovations besides.

However, they are big players in technology development, changes and innovation. Yes, inventor of the X86 series of microprocessors which can be found in many PCs are trying their best to do even higher level. As you know, Intel produces various electronic component such as chipset, microprocessor, integrated circuits, motherboard, network interface controllers, graphic chips, flash memory, embedded processors and so on related to computing. They too have very few competitors for its business but still on top for it.

They changed the track from Analog to Digital one. Their other successful beginnings were SRAM and DRAM memory etc. However, Intel created first commercial microprocessor in 1971 though it was not well known till Personal Computer development during 1990. Intel funded huge and were top most supplier for microprocessor in and around 1990 for growing computer industry. Their ‘Intel Inside’ along with ‘Pentium’ tag was well known for many at that time. Intel success started from P1, P2, P3, P4, Centrino, Celeron, Core Duo, Dual core, Core 2 Duo, i3, i5, i7. Intel Celeron to Intel Pentium then moved to Intel Core as success and best to offer worldwide.

Beside various technology developments such as higher configuration for advance computer matching latest software, Intel also focusing on Cloud computing and serving to Government organization in each country to bring eGovernance for future consideration. So far, Intel has helped on various sections’ development in many countries for eGovernance initiative, it has enriched the sectors like Railways, Airlines, Research, Aerospace, Defence, Passport, Citizen’s ID and so on to link directly the citizen and service facilities.

Besides their focusing on Big data and Cloud computing, Intel is closely working with Indian Government too on various projects like ‘Digital Skills for India’ program. Intel has already working on a digital skills training application that developed in five languages of India (viz. Hindi, Marathi, Kannada, Gujarati and Tamil). The Digital Skills for India app is going to be available in Android Play Store soon. This application module for digital literacy on healthcare, financial inclusion and cleanliness in those languages are going to be helpful to few million citizens. Digital education in India is need of the hour.


Other than this, Intel aim is to collect more and more data especially from health records, financial information and social media and store them in cloud environment including safety of the data.

My first Mobile phone to Smartphone - Moto E

There are lots of inventions and innovations are going around every now and then. No one was sure a few years ago about upcoming advance products or gadgets which we are experiencing at the moment. 

We can easily say that there were many inventions or innovations taken place in the recent few decades in many sectors whether it could be of Science or Technology or Health related or Research or Education sector etc. 

There were no such huge technology changes would have taken place earlier in those sectors or it is not sure about the same development in the near future except possibilities on the same or better.

Regarding Technology in Telecom sector, yes, there are many changes taken place within few decades. I will furnish herewith some rough detail and highlight on this development as follows;

Land phone:
It has brought the revolution on two way communication at any distance after the slowing down of 1940s old phone. There were huge demands for Land phone once it was initiated in every country. There were many poles and wires in row on each and every routes to connect each other with extra cost, manpower and time taken. 

Sometime telephone users and telecom service provider used to face difficulties during bad weather as the weather or rain or cyclone can damage the poles and wire which happen to disconnect each other’s communication. 

It used to take time to repair it and get back to normal. Also, getting a new telephone connection from government authority even after applying for it and waited for few years were like a dream for everyone to reach it to their home.

Pager:
This gadget started to roam in few hands as prestigious one during 1990s and it used to get delayed message for many. However, it was helpful for many to carry and get the communication on time. The growing of computers and internet connectivity’s at that time helped for this pager device to work out. 

However, technology changes everything now and then. After just few years of pager service in selected cities, mobile phone with antenna started to come in slowly which had a call and messaging features that attracted many and stopped to use it due to its heavy charges tariff on call and device cost was higher comparing till date.

Mobile phone:
From 1990 to 2000, the technology helped common man to look back at the mobile devices and it was helpful for the telecom sector to get huge customers afterward. Basic model mobile phone was expensive though it can be affordable by them. However, everyone took little breath on mobile device and its call charges after year 2001 onward if I can remember well. 

I remember when I bought my first mobile phone Nokia 3210 and 3310 in Singapore few years back (Rs 5000 around). They are the first mobile phones in my life to buy and also bought one more for my friends. Those mobile phones are like an advanced one at that time and other brand hard to reach those level specifications except very few well known mobile manufacturers as its competitor.



My first Smartphone:

Smartphone development after mobile phone innovation changed the entire revolution on technology between telecom industry and its end user; the technology advancement helped telecom subscribers to use them effectively for calls, instant messaging, video calls, internet browsing and other apps usage etc. 

Smartphone revolution precisely had begun since 2007. There were hundreds of thousands of branded series Smartphone launched regularly. However, I was not satisfied with the Smartphone that was given by company with limited features.

However, I had to use different Smartphone given by office for official work but my personal phone was just a normal mobile phone till I got to know the cheap and best quality Smartphone that I had to buy as time has come for it. My own Smartphone #ChooseToStart is none other than New Moto E. I have owned it and it felt me like it is just mine.

Moto E specification:

Highlights of the Moto E Android Smartphone:
I am not writing review or pros and cons for this device here but Moto E had beaten every other Smartphone within or above the price ranges with similar or higher configuration, as per my experience. I felt with this smart device like it has everything in it. 

I can do office work just by carrying it anywhere. The touch screen is fantastic, hilarious and smooth as butter. Now, it can’t fell down from my hand as other Smartphone slipped it, Moto E has very nice hand grip to hold forever, yes, forever. Android Lollipop operating system is an outstanding. 

Instant messaging and other apps are dazzling. There are many hidden features in it and one can enjoy it on having and using it. I had tried it and satisfied, will you? You can check it at www.startwithmotoe.com

Hope this gadget detail helps you to get some idea on the little history of the mobile phone and technology innovation.

Advantages of online sources

As many knows, there are advantages and disadvantages from online sources too as same as offline sources. It is all about individual's assessment, decision and aim on a particular task or project execution. It is working seriously well.
