  • Green Innovation Model: Primitive Synergy

    CLIMATE CHANGE is becoming a serious concern and we need to think ‘green’ for preserving the core nature of the planet earth.

  • ICTs against security

    ICT is yet another way in to our confidentiality. Paving the path for outdoors to our indoors very calmly and swiftly that an air breeze is easy to feel but the sneaker or hacker can’t be realized. It all because we have a state-of-the-art stealth tech adoption rate sky high in each and every part of the world and every professional pines for it. ICT was made to secretly relay the info in war times and it successfully did that for US DoD (department of defence).

  • Techno messengers

    We have seen messengers facilitating the messages to be sent to a certain destination with full devotion. They try to the message through by means of sending and receiving techniques which can guarantee the success in achieving a goal or objective. Some believe that whatever ease we go for to have max impact on the receivers to change the path from wrong to right. Messages often are very important and must to be sent across the board to all so that damage can be reduced. We all have something that needs to be communicated, disseminated or forwarded to certain audience…Read More

  • Cheeky Tech Choking Love

    It really sounds odd to talk about love in relation to technology. But is it really something no linkage with technology or its only naive humans who can't really understand the concept of the linkage between the two. According to theorists of post modernists, there is always a linkage or we may say an influence of innovation on already existing natural passions. According to theory, everything in universe has some impact on each other void of the distance or remoteness; signifcance may be an issue but impact is always there. Love is not among the gravely emphasized necessities of mankind i.e. food, clothes and shelter but it really is one o…Read More

  • Enemy void guns: The automotives

    Motor companies are focusing on efficiency. However, it is unlike the efficiency introduced by other technology companies in automotive industry. The technology isn’t going to focus on any new concept like solar or water based cars or electronic vehicles.

The concept is that of old technology improved further by investigating the old principles thoroughly. New technologies, materials, metallurgy and other knowledge horizons are to be shaken by …Read More

  • Shame Game

    Technology hasn't brought changes in the life of some but all. Young kids are the ones who are affected very badly in reality and in totality. We see them busy in all the new gadgets launched by companies. In fact, the "Individual Differences" researches are full of personality traits which though are categorized into 5 major and 16 other traits of human personality which, of course, are the very limited research based articles in academic journal and the kids personality is full of experiences and they are not full person so they may not be classified as from any personality trait driven being.

This goes on and on by giving preference in the job market to those who are close in relationship to oneself. This is criticized as it is said to be a bad activity or habit or whatever, as the issues of discrimination and family politics rise due to nepotism.

  • Barter to brutal: Innovation @ cost of eco

    Thoughts do have power. Ultimate outcome of thinking process is conceptualization of innovation, information, inevitability of education. We keep thinking to come up with some new innovative idea and try to sell it for own benefit. Strong marketing skills equipped with new technology make it easy to convince policy makers running the governments, thus policies are often infected by such group members with strong convincing power or manipulating skills. Society is often ignored, thus policies for harnessing the population are being devised. What we do in our everyday life is bu…Read More
