The world has already been addicted to handheld devices and smart devices. It’s been a decade since users started swapping back and forth between iOS and Android smartphones. The IT industry has also been growing and shaping itself into a smart, device-friendly community. It has grown to such a large extent that the future of mobility is being evaluated based on the “smartness” factor of devices.
Android holds more than 40% of the market share for mobile operating systems (Wikipedia). In the US, Android was ranked as the top smartphone platform with a 51% share (comScore Reports, January 2014). There is no mistaking the popularity of this platform, which of course makes it increasingly prone to security attacks. Security testers and Android application builders can leave no stones unturned under the circumstances. (more…)
This article demonstrates how to send emails from .NET framework using WCF service. In real time projects, it is a common task to send emails from our applications. In .NET, sending emails is very easy to implement. I have developed a small piece of code which sends email via Gmail account.
While developing any application, one of the common problems faced by developers is, passing data between the server and the client. Today, there are thousands of applications and services that can implement this data interchange, making development much easier. JSON, XML, and YAML are some of the services that make a developer’s life less miserable.
We are all familiar with the name, Robot. In simple words, Robot is an electro-magnetic machine, designed to do some specific tasks. Now, Intel has plans to bring out a fully customizable 3D printable Robot, which can handle multiple tasks such as turning on lights, having conversations, and picking up newspapers. Jimmy, the name given by Intel, is 45 centimeters tall, two legged and may cost around $1,500. The hardware designs are freely available online, thus allowing anyone with access to a 3D printer to assemble and generate the basic working parts. The kit is getting ready and will go on sale later this year at 21stCenturyRobot.com, including everything that cannot be printed, such as battery, wires, motors and processor chip. He can be completely yours if you own a 3D printer. 3D printing is the process of making a three-dimensional object from a 3D model (here, it’s Jimmy), with which you can animate and control it. Using this, you can create your own Robot designs and place them on an exoskeleton. (more…)
