Technology News in India - Technology

Since the time technology has come to inhabit our daily lives in a major way, there is no point in remaining blissfully ignorant about its constant evolution. Every day one comes across stray news regarding the launch of some revolutionary iPhone or the improvement of an existing line of laptops. However, often such news becomes difficult to track down to a credible source thereby making it impossible for interested customers to make further queries. Technology blogs are a great source of organized information. No wonder they have garnered so much popularity in the present times!

There are several advantages attached to such blogs. They are web pages that offer readers a free site where news about the latest innovations in technology are made available. Since the internet has already invaded almost every home and is at the disposal of people of every age and profession, it will not be right to state that such technology blogs would only be noticed by tech geeks.

Google has been popularizing up its transportation search features for desktop and mobile, but now it is shifting into full on travel mode with its Hotel Finder experiment.

The Next Web reports that the utility is "designed to help users find the desired hotel." Easier said than done, of course, but maybe something that Google creates is just crazy enough to work.

Google's Hotel Finder (not to be confused with can find the ideal accommodation for a particular user based on a few different priorities, such as location and budget. For example, when searching for where to stay, the user can draw shapes around neighborhoods using a mouse rather than searching by individual addresses.

Other helpful tools include being able to compare hotels easily within the same browser tab featuring photos and reviews of different hotels, along with the option to keep a "shortlist" for ones that might catch a traveler's eye.

Again, Google's application the hotel Finder is still under experimental phase (and it might have that similar name to worry about), thus don't expect it to work so perfectly just yet. Additionally, it's only available for finding hotels in the United States at this time.

In related Google travel/transit news, Google has officially added the London Underground to its repertoire of information for public transit agencies. Info on transport for London includes over 18,000 bus stops and over 250 Underground stations. Note that the provided data refers to planning trips, getting directions, and general location information--not real-time alerts and schedules.

Nevertheless, it's a good start--especially if you're planning to attend the Summer Olympics in London next summer, which starts one year from yesterday.

Google today also announced the the Page Speed Service project for improving load times by up to 60 percent.

Digital cameras

Digital cameras are getting much compact and fully loaded with an array of features suitable for the common man as well as for the professionals. Since last year it has been noticed that a big change in the way different cameras have pushed to provide larger mega pixels. For a layman, it simply means that if a camera has larger mega pixels, it can be able to provide a larger size in print outputs.

With emerging technologies, there are cameras which are being developed where the image stills and videos can be directly uploaded via FTP with the built-in modem in the camera. There are even cameras which can be connected to a network through a LAN card in the camera. These days there are even wireless cards in a camera giving more connectivity power.
