What Makes A DAD

What Makes A DAD


God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,

Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad

Dell deliberately sold flawed PCs: Lawsuit docs reveals

Bangalore: The documents from a lawsuit filed three years ago against Dell have confirmed that the company was aware of and continued to sell flawed PCs. About 12 million OptiPlex desktops between 2003 and 2005 shipped with mainboards capacitors that, according to e-mail messages, Dell employees knew would fail within three years. Staff were told to avoid acknowledging the mainboards were bad and downplayed breakdowns, even when batches of 1,000 or more PCs failed at the same time.



Dell eventually admitted to the issue and in 2005 set aside $300 million to mend and replace computers, although it tried to downplay the effects by saying the capacitors didn't cause data loss or pose a safety risk. Many affected companies did, however, complain that they lost millions of dollars of business as they were suddenly forced to repair or replace systems all at once.

The problem wasn't unique to Dell and did affect system builders such as Apple and HP. Producers of stand-alone mainboards like ASUS and MSI were also affected. Most of these, however, were more active in addressing complaints and either fixed systems more proactively or started extended repair programs sooner.

Dell's supply chain has also been blamed for some of the faults. Its system, which is still in practice today, relies on a just-in-time assembly process that lets it get cheaper parts as they become available. While leaner and more profitable, it exacerbated the problem by leaving Dell with no easy solution to getting alternative mainboards where other companies could swap them out sooner.

Cisco gets into tablets: Focuses on videoconferencing

Bangalore: Cisco confirmed that Cius will be its first tablet. The 7-inch slate works as a full Android tablet with apps, but the major focus is on Cisco's videoconferencing features. A front camera provides full speed 720p video; a back five-megapixel camera helps both for stills and for streaming 640x480 video. Driving the Cius' focus home are a single-button video conference control and a unique docking station with traditional phone handset; it can also support gigabit Ethernet and USB. Cisco's full range of features, such as VPN connections and WebEx, are supported in software.



As an independent device, the tablet mostly uses 802.11n Wi-Fi to get online but has the option of 3G and will eventually support 4G. Bluetooth is built-in. Opting for a smaller size helps keep the weight down to 1.15 pounds, but Cisco still expects that the device can last for up to eight hours.

Cisco's entry marks a defensive move for the company, as the iPad has already been entering business to a limited degree. Many of Cisco's features are still off-limits for the iPad without third-party apps, but the Cius may let Cisco keep selling to large customers for common tasks like the web and e-mail.

The news comes early as Cisco is testing the Cius with some of its clients in the summer; it won't ship in earnest until 2011.

Indian investors help MIT professor to explore his idea

Bangalore: Many of the great ideas gets stuck in labs just because the scientists don't have access to the right kind of supports. Now the Indian investors have started lending their hands to the budding inventors by providing enough funds to explore their innovative ideas. Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation, an MIT entity funded by two Indians investors, Jaishree Deshpande and her husband Gururaj, is lending a hand to the budding inventors to realize their dreams, reports Bob Tedeschi from New York Times.



Douglas P Hart, a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has won a support of $50,000 to convert his dream to reality. The Professor's new startup, Lantos Technologies, which developed a 3-D scanner that hopes to update the current generation of earphones and hearing aids by precisely fitting them to the dimensions of the ear canal, is set to lock up $1.5 million in funding. "We're hoping people will be able to walk in the store and have their ears scanned like people got their ears pierced today," said Hart, who sold his last startup for $95 million. "I wouldn't have known the first thing about doing all of this, if the people from the Deshpande Center led me through," recalls enthused Hart.

The Deshpande Center was established at the MIT School of Engineering in 2002 to increase the impact of MIT technologies in the marketplace. Since its inception the Center has funded more than 80 projects with over $9 Million in grants.

By providing academics like Professor Hart a bridge to the business world, MIT is in the forefront of a movement involving a handful of universities nationwide that work closely with investors to ensure that promising ideas are nurtured and turned into successful start-ups.

At first glance, the centers look like academic versions of business incubators. But universities are getting involved now at a much earlier stage than incubators typically do. Rather than offering seed money to businesses that already have a product and a staff, as incubators usually do, the universities are harvesting great ideas and then trying to find investors and businesspeople interested in developing them further and exploring their commercial viability.

some interesting questions to students

some interesting questions to students during recruitment in IIM's Placement Sessions.


Here are some of them:-


************ ********* **

1. There is one word in the English language that is always pronounced incorrectly. What is it?


********



2. A man gave one son 10 cents and another son was given 15 cents. What time is it?


********

3. A boat has a ladder that has six rungs, each rung is one foot apart. The bottom rung is one foot from the water.


The tide rises at 12 inches every 15minutes. High tide peaks in one hour. When the tide is at it's highest, how many rungs are under water?


********

4. There is a house with four walls. Each wall faces south. There is a window in each wall. A bear walks by one of the windows. What color is the bear?


********

5. Is half of two plus two equal to two or three?


********

6. There is a room. The shutters are blowing in. There is broken glass on the floor. There is water on the floor. You find Sloppy dead on the floor. Who is Sloppy? How did Sloppy die?


********

7. How much dirt would be in a hole 6 feet deep and 6 feet wide that has been dug with a square edged shovel?


********

8. If I were in Hawaii and dropped a bowling ball in a bucket of water which is 45 degrees F, and dropped another ball of the same weight, mass, and size in a bucket at 30 degrees F, both of them at the same time, which ball would hit the bottom of the bucket first?

Same question, but the location is in Canada ?


********

9. What is the significance of the following: The year is 1978, thirty-four minutes past noon on May 6th.


********

10. If a farmer has 5 haystacks in one field and 4 haystacks in the other field, how many haystacks would he have if he combined them all in the center field?


********

********

1. The word "incorrectly. "


********

2. 1:45. The man gave away a total of 25 cents. He divided it between two people. Therefore, he gave a quarter to two.


********

3. None, the boat rises with the tide. Googly ;-)


********

4. White. If all the walls face south, the house is at the North pole, and the bear, therefore, is a polar bear.


********

5. Three. Well, it seems that it could almost be either, but if you follow the mathematical orders of operation, division is performed before addition.

So... half of two is one. Then add two, and the answer is three.


********

6. Sloppy is a (gold)fish. The wind blew the shutters in, which knocked his goldfish-bowl off the table, and it broke, killing him.


********

7. None. No matter how big a hole is, it's still a hole: the absence of dirt.


********

8. Both questions, same answer: the ball in the bucket of 45 degree F water hits the bottom of the bucket last. Did you think that the water in the 30 degree F bucket is frozen? Think again.


The question said nothing about that bucket having anything in it. Therefore, there is no water (or ice) to slow the ball down...


********

9. The time and month/date/year American style calendar are 12:34, 5/6/78.


********

10. One. If he combines all of his haystacks, they all become one big stack.


********

11. The temperature.


********
