Surface Go: Where is Microsoft going with this and does India need one?

Image
For some time now we have been witnessing a paradigm shift in the way we (consumers) use laptops. The hybrid laptop/tablet culture has kicked in and tech giants like Microsoft, Google and Apple have leapt forward to get a hold of the big fish. Hardware companies like HP, Dell and Asus have come up with tantalizing form factors for the hybrids. The market for laptops/tablets is going through a tumultuous wave, one which will change the industry forever and for the good. Who is the winner over here? Is has to be the consumer.

First Look: Google's Project Jacquard, Levi's smart jacket

Image
Ever wondered how it would feel to wear a jacket that performs actions on your smartphone with gestures? Well, nobody thought it would be possible, but Google had other plans!

Google' Project Jacquard has taken off with the introduction of Levi's new smart jacket and is set to take the world by storm.



It’s targeted at people who commute by bike, and I think the only people beyond that target market are going to be a few techies and people who just really like jean jackets. Also, it works with both Android and iPhone.


When you talk to both Levi’s and Google, they’re very eager to tell a design story about this jacket, not just a technology story. It comes out of a partnership between the clothing company and a small division of Google dedicated to experimentation. We’ve seen lots of weird projects inside Google’s ATAP, but most of them (like the ill-fated Project Ara) have ended up getting scuttled.
The Levi's Trucker jacket is currently available in the United States for $3…

How to create awesome headers for Facebook pages and Twitter handles

Image
Facebook pages and Twitter handles work wonders for your business, if you create and share the right content on them. Apart from the content, the design of the page makes a big difference in attracting and retaining the right customers or just customers in general.

Most of the newbies and even experienced pros make this mistake of not creating compelling social media pages, something which instantly catches attention and even engages the audience for long.


But, we live in the 21st century, wherein social media is more than just a marketing tool and developers from across the globe have developed online design websites to help out people with lack of design sense.
