Micromax has launched a new application which allows users to exchange images, audio and video files alongside the standard messages. Quite similar to the popular Whatsapp service, the application is absolutely free to use.
The App is cross platform and bring the missing features of a conventional messenger available.
An interesting part of the app is that it lets users send messages to non-Hookup users as well. The application will come pre-bundled with their new phone Micromax A25 Smarty.
Lets see if it can compete with the Messenger Leading Application “WhatsApp”.
MINT IS THE BEST SOLUTION FOR THE NEW LINUX USERS.
THIS OPERATING SYSTEM IS BASICALLY A DEBIAN FILE SYSTEM BASED BUT IT PROVIDES THE USER A WINDOW ENVIRONMENT FOR WORKING.
I JUST FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS OS. IT HAS SOME KEY FEATURES WHICH ARE GIVEN BELOW.
1. MY COMPUTER AND HOME FOLDER ICON IS ADDED ON THE DESKTOP.
2. TASKBAR PROVIDES IT THE LOOK OF A WINDOW OS.
3. FILE TRANSFER IS FAST.
4. CONTROL CENTER IS THERE TO CONTROL THE SOFTWARE AND OUTLOOKING OF THE MINT.
5. WE CAN EASILY ADJUST THE DEFAULT OS IF WE SAME TIME INSTALL MULTI OS ON OUR SYSTEM.
6. THE SOFTWARES ARE JUST A CLICK AWAY FROM U.
7. THE IMPORTANT THING I LOVE IS THE IN BUILT VLC PLAYER IN IT AND ALSO HAVING ALL THE FUNCTION OF LINUX AND AT THE SAME TIME PROVIDES THE WINDOWS INTERFACE.
SO I REQUESTED TO ALL THE USERS WHO WANTS TO TRY THEIR HAND ON LINUX, JUST GIVE ONE CHANCE TO MINT AND I DAMN SURE THAT U WILL LOVE IT.
In Android phone you have a limit of messages you can send. You cannot send more than 100 SMS in a hour using your Android power phone.I dont know why they created this, But now there is a tweak available though which you can either increase the SMS limit or you can just remove the limit.
To apply this tweak either you have to insert some commands in a Terminal app on your Android device or from your computer using adb. After using this tweak you can increase the limit of sending sms from 101 to a new limit or simply you can remove the limit.
How to Apply This Trick:
Open Command Terminal and enter the following:
Then you’ll see: sqlite>
Then enter the following to alter the limit
INSERT INTO gservices (name, value) VALUES(’sms_outgoing_check_max_count’, 101);
(change 101 to your new limit)
I didnt try altering the limit so I hope it works for you guys.. but I can confirm this next one works. It completely turns off the limit altogether.
To turn off the limit enter:
INSERT INTO gservices (name, value) VALUES(’sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms’, 0);
It worked right away for me.. (SMS Bomber >)) Id reboot to be safe.

A happy customer might tell someone. An unhappy customer tells everyone. Converting to Linux before taking a dose of reality might make you a very unhappy customer. Let’s be perfectly honest. Linux isn’t for everyone-yet. However, Ubuntu, Mandriva, and a few other distributions come close but for now, Linux is a little more difficult to use than Windows.
Linux is an incredibly useful, versatile and interesting operating system, but it does have its drawbacks, so familiarize yourself with them.
1. It Isn’t Windows Although this one should fall under the “duh” category, you shouldn’t expect Linux to be Windows. Linux has some striking similarities to Windows: the graphical interface, cascading menus, applications represented by icons, configurable desktop themes, and most of the desktop gadgetry you’ve come to expect from Windows. It looks and behaves like Windows, but it isn’t. Its fans say that it’s better because of its stability, its multi-user capability and its overwhelmingly cheaper price (free is hard to beat).Yet, Linux still falls short of the Windows glory that it attempts to mimic–at least on the surface. Windows enjoys multiple advantages over Linux: thousands of paid developers, a giant marketing machine, third-party vendor support, several more years of existence, and a dedicated individual and corporate user base. It’s no small wonder that Windows dominates the market for the world’s available computing dollars.In many ways Windows vs. Linux is like the old VHS vs. Betamax video format struggle. Betamax was the superior product, but it never caught on in the consumer marketplace. Linux is a more modern version of the Betamax format. Linux isn’t Windows. It will never be Windows.
2. It Isn’t Quite Unix Either Linux possesses many Unix attributes, such as its filesystem layout, multi-user capability, stability, efficient resource utilization and security. Yet, Linux is very different from commercial Unix flavors too. It runs on commodity x86-based hardware, has full virtualization built into its kernel, has the ability to run embedded, and can operate from a USB pen drive.This extreme flexibility makes Linux unique in the small business, enterprise, and consumer computing markets. Linux is a type of Unix, but not in the purest sense of the word. Its developers call it a Unix clone . Commercial Unix flavors suffer the same problems as Linux when it comes down to the compatibility question. For example, if you’re currently running your applications on IBM’s AIX, those applications would be no more or less compatible with Linux than they would be with Sun Solaris or HP-UX.
3. Printers and Other PeripheralsIt’s true that Linux doesn’t have a large number of choices when it comes to peripheral support. And, if you’ve ever tried to set up printing under Linux, it’s likely that you’re missing a few locks of your hair. There are hundreds of supported printers in the list but if yours falls outside that list, good luck to you. After spending hours searching forums, you may find that your printer isn’t supported at all and neither does it emulate any supported printer.Linux creates more printer- shaped doorstops and sculptures than any other contemporary operating system. The solution to this problem is to check your Linux distribution’s Hardware Compatibility List for printer and other peripheral compatibility prior to conversion. On the other hand, it’s probably time to replace that paper-gobbling dinosaur for something newer anyway.
4. Documents and Files This particular problem has more to do with the applications that run on Linux rather than the operating system itself. You will find general document and file compatibility with users of Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop and other popular software programs that run on Windows. General compatibility means that you can open, read and edit most of their attachments and file types. Files that won’t work with theOpenOffice.org office suite, the Graphics and Image Manipulation Program (GIMP ) or other similar application on Linux likely have some proprietary “hook” or special attribute that can only be interpreted by the original software that created it. Linux users often find themselves asking others to use creative tactics in order to help with compatibility problems. Performing “Save As” operations or exporting to a neutral file format usually solves the problem but requires effort from both parties.
5. Technical Skills Required Linux requires a higher level of computer knowledge to make things work. That isn’t to say that ordinary users can’t use Linux, but to perform more advanced functions–such as setting up peripherals that aren’t plug-and-play or installing non-packaged software–you’ll need those higher level technical skills. Setting up Linux workstations is relatively simple, but Linux server services require a very skilled technical person to enable and configure them. If you’re the type that likes to tinker with computers, to learn new things, and to celebrate a victory when you’re successful, then Linux is for you.Making the switch to Linux requires a dedication to the Linux platform,the Linux concept , and the ability to solve problems under often difficult circumstances. Realize that Linux doesn’t support every printer or peripheral on the market. If you’re considering a switch to Linux, you probably know that some obstacles exist and that you’ll have to make a few compromises along the way.If you want stay with the familiar and comfortable pitfalls that you’re accustomed to, use Windows. Or, to really dumb down your computing environment, you can pay the extra money for Apple products. You can also choose to suffer a little pain, make a few exceptions, use Linux to power your desktops and servers and experience a new level of computing freedom.
