Android may ascend tablet system throne over iOS

CNETAnalysis: The table is set for a tablet OS takeover, according to the latest predictions posted by the International Data Corporation (IDC). The market research firm said in a press release today that it’s spiking its worldwide 2013 tablet shipment forecasts up from 172.4 million to 190.9 million. That’s great news for tablet makers, but a closer look reveals one sect will likely stage an upset. Thanks to a surge in smaller, cheaper tablets – produced predominately with Android inside – the IDC expects that OS to overtake iOS for the first time since the iPad’s inception. Bottom line According to the IDC, Android saw solid market expansion in 2012, a trend it thinks will continue. One in every two tablets shipped during the quarter was below 8-inches, IDC noted, with smaller tablets projected to grow through the year and beyond. With a growing diversity of shrunken, affordable tablets running Android, it’s no wonder IDC sees a coup in the works. Previously the firm predicted Android would hold 41.5 percent of the market in 2013, but it’s changed its mind and moved that number up to 48.8 percent. Unfortunately for iOS, Android’s gain comes at its loss. IDC dropped the system’s predicted market share from 51 percent to 46 percent. Windows 8 has hope, though not this year – IDC thinks it will grow from 1 percent in 2012 to 7.4 percent by 2017, with Android and iOS both giving up some share to the fledgling OS. Things might have been better for Microsoft had it stuck with one OS, IDC’s Tom Mainelli said, instead of splintering into Windows 8 and Windows RT. Of course, something like a more affordable follow-up to the iPad mini – what we like to call the iPad m ini 2 – could throw a wrench in the IDC’s predictions. Google, Asus or Samsung with its Galaxy Note 8.0 could easily take the tablet world by storm, swinging the favor even more secure! ly Android’s way. We’ll just have to sit back and watch the products roll out. Related Stories Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will call Verizon home starting Thursday Posted by: Maryum

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun

Ding Dong Bubble Gum Releases Animated Full Song 2015

All hail the Ding Dong Bubblegum Super Cat! The latest superhero in the line of brand-inspired animated characters.
Last year, Hilal aired a 1 minute story, showing the animated Super Cat fighting off the mice aka gooneys, who attempt to steal her Ding Dong bubblegum. The video, meant to be a teaser, cuts off with a ‘To Be Continued’ sign.

Now, we see the rest of the story….
Super Cat is back and she’s kicking mice butt, facing multiple obstacles, using her trusted bells and outsmarting her ‘nephew', the Lion.
All this and she manages to take back what’s rightfully hers… the bubblegum!
The best thing about Ding Dong is that the “Cat” in the ad has always been the same. Talk about consistency.
An extended version of the song has been introduced but still goes along the same lines of “Aik billi moti taazi thi, jo mazay se ding dong khati thi”
All in all, a fun video to watch about the age-old brand that most people consider as part of their childhood.
