Smaller Windows 8 touch devices are on the way

CNETAnalysis: Smaller Windows 8 devices are arriving in the coming months. How do we know? Well, Microsoft basically just said as much. During its third quarter fiscal year 2013 earnings call today, CFO Peter Klein talked about Microsoft’s plans to offer more devices through its OEMs that hit more attractive price points as the year unfolds. “As part of this, we are also working closely with OEMs on a new suite of small touch devices powered by Windows,” he said. “These devices will have competitive price points partly enabled by our latest OEM offerings designed specifically for these smaller devices, and will become available in the coming months.” Klein didn’t talk about Microsoft’s own plans for a smaller, touch-enabled device, though with the recent reports that have surfaced about a 7-inch Windows tablet cooking, there’s a good chance we’re only months away from a smaller Surface hitting store shelves. Staying Surface strong Last month, Microsoft revised its display resolution requirements for OEMs , taking the number from 1366 x 768 to 1024 x 769, meaning a 7- to 8-inch Windows 8 device could be built with the proper res. Microsoft readily admitted during the call that it was affected by the decline in the PC market, but Klein said it’s also “working to increase our share in tablets.” There are more niches for Microsoft to fill in the tablet space, so we expect some new-sized models to land before long. Now, we’re taking small to mean 7 inches or so, but what about something even smaller, like say, a watch ? That’s likely a ways from release, but it doesn’t hurt to dream. The company did report a growth of revenue, racking in an adjusted US$18.8 billion, though the Windows division stayed flat. Net income sate at US$6.06 billion. Looking ahead, Klein spoke about the release of Windows Blue , which he said “further advances! the vision of Windows 8 as well as response to customer feedback.” The company also plans to improve the user experience of Windows 8 across not just Surface as well as a broad array of price points going forward. Later this year will also bring competitively priced Intel Bay Trail-based products, Microsoft said. Related Stories Galaxy Tab 3 Plus ‘Roma’ specs are more impressive in latest leak

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

Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

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.
