The Sony Xperia VL,which has been rumoured to kick-off on November 2nd of this year,will feature the Xperia V's dust and water resistant amazing curvy structure.The Xperia VL has inherited Bravia's slim sensor-on-lens 720p HD display. The 4.3inch phone runs on the rapid 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. At its heart lies a storage capacity of 16GB,expandable via a microSD card, and a 1GB RAM. 
Now if you're into photography,this phone is the right tool for you. It's packed with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 3.1-megapixel front-facing camera. Plain awesome. This version of the Xperia runs on the 4.0.4 Ice-Cream Sandwich operating system,a bit of a disappointment if you might add.

It would take a few seconds and as Apple itself said that "as Maps is a cloud-based solution, the more people use it, the better it will get."


Users who search for a specific city or landmark and find an error can at least alert Apple to the glitch. To do so, tap on the right arrow or information icon next to the pinned area to bring up the Location page. At the bottom of the page, tap on the Report a Problem link.

Twitter Gets A New Bird, A New Logo.


Social-networking-revolutionary-service—Twitter has unveiled a new logo for itself. The company says the new logo will be the universally recognized symbol of Twitter. And that "there's no longer a need for text, bubbled typefaces, or a lowercase ‘t’ to represent Twitter." Though there are a many logo’s which symbolize Twitter, but this one will just replace the ‘t’.

The bird in the logo has its head held high, wings spread wide. Looks like Twitter is getting philosophical with its design and logos. Twitter says that "our new bird grows out of love for ornithology, design within creative constraints, and simple geometry," and that "a bird in flight is the ultimate representation of freedom, hope, and limitless possibility"

Apple Fails In India : Top 5 Reasons.

Apple Fails in India
Apple products are a rage in the West. But in Asian nations like India it isn't popular with the masses. The guys at the research department of Apple do not consider India as a potential ground to sell the iPhone. Maybe it is because of Steve Jobs and his 7 months stay in India in the '70s that has blacklisted Indians from being blessed with the iPhone just as it launches. They have to wait till it officially launches or pay a couple of bucks extra and get it arranged from the Black market. 


Its not only the pricing that affects its graphs but also does its service, communication and marketing factors. Indians believe in the "Sasta, Sunder, Tikao" phenomenon. And Apple has been known to deliver simple, aesthetic products and doesn't mind keeping it highly priced. 

1. Price:
People who buy electronic are mostly consumers and not buyers. They want the best of all and  prefer having it low priced, offer full feature and getting the best service. The iPhone rates in India are exorbitant. Though the iPhone is used by a million, it is neglected by the masses and thus giving it market to Nokia, who still dominates 60% of the cellular devices sold. 

2. Delicacy:
"iPhone gira toh, vaat hai!" (if the iPhone falls, your screwed) is a common axiom. It is believed that once the iPhone slips from your hand, it has slipped forever and you would have to get a new one. Though this is partly false but people do not want to risk it. And you certainly cannot carry it in a 7.59pm Virar Local. After all, it costs you your monthly salary.

How to Copy Blu-ray to M2TS Using WinX Blu-ray Decrypter


As a growing number of needs to keep our original Blu-ray discs (BDs) in good condition, it is no doubt that using Blu-ray backup tools to copy BDs is an ideal way to build Blu-ray video copy on hard discs. Since Blu-ray Discs have different region codes that can stop us from freely copying Blu-ray discs for personal/family movie backup, we need Blu-ray backup software to remove the copy protections.

Among the tons of similar Blu-ray backup applications, I prefer programs that can maximally keep the copied videos’ quality as excellent as the original ones’. If you require high quality about the copied HD videos, WinX Blu-ray Decrypter is the 1st one you should try.

iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak


The wait is over for iOS users. An untethered jailbreak for the iOS 5.1.1 is finally available.  The noble job was done two iOS crackers Chronic-Dev and the Iphone Dev Team. The two groups have announced the release of Absinthe 2.0.

A jailbreak allows you to jump the wall of Apple’s garden which allows its users to install applications only from its App Store. Even the dummies may know this; a jailbreak is way of breaking the control of Apple from its devices and allows you to install third party applications via Cydia.

The groups said, "After copious amounts of work and many sleepless nights Absinthe 2.0 is finally here to jailbreak your device. This release has been a large collaborative effort between Chronic-Dev Team and iPhone Dev Teams."


Absinthe 2.0 iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak:

Absinthe v2.0.1 Linux (x86/x86_64)

Now, FaceTime With 3G!


Did you ever wanted to FaceTime your loved one before you fly off, but could not as FaceTime requires a WiFi connection and there is none nearby? Now, your problem could be sorted. 


A warning notification which was discovered in the iOS 5.1.1 indicates that Apple would liberate its users to use FaceTime only through a WiFi connection. By generating inferences from the warning which the iPhone gives when you turn off 3G, conclusions can be made.


A Romanian blog iDevice has dug out a hint which steers us to conclude that 3G data could be used to use Apple –to-Apple free FaceTime calls. When a user attempts to turn off 3G connectivity during an active call, the notification reads: "Disabling 3G may end FaceTime. Are you sure you want to disable 3G?". Just like most discoveries are made, this one too was made by mistake. When the user tried to disable 3G while on a FaceTime call, the message popped and he stumbled upon this hint.
