How To Watch The iPhone 6 Event Online

Posted By: Arin Dey - September 09, 2014
Apple has announced that it will be streaming the iPhone 6 event live. Officially it is available on Apple devices only. It is also true that, officially the limitation is precisely for Safari 5.1.10 or OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later; streaming via Apple TV would require second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later. But there is a way that will open up the barrier of limitation and enables you to watch this live streaming event online on your Windows or Linux platforms also. This trick will enable you to watch watch the event on any device which has media player VLC. No worries. 

Follow the below simple steps to watch this event live :
  1. Open VLC player. If you don't have it installed then download the same from here.
  2. Open VLC and click on Media Menu (top left).
  3. Once the drop down menu comes, click on the Network Stream.
  4. A popup screen will appear as shown below.

Windows Phone Includes Android As Dual OS

Posted By: Arin Dey - March 16, 2014
Now smartphone users are getting dual OS.  Huawei is already decided to keep on making Windows OS phones but the most happening news is that Android systems are going to integrate with present Windows OS. It means that users can get the opportunity to use both the OS according to their choices.

Windows Phone Includes Android As Dual OS

Shao Yang, Huawei’s CMO, told TrustedReviews.com “We are still committed to making Windows Phone devices”. He also added that Android devices are more popular on the market.

As per him a “dual OS” incorporating both Android and Windows on a Windows Phone would be the greatest move that the company has yet taken.

He added that “If it is Windows only, maybe people will not find it as easy a decision to buy the phone. If they have the Android and Windows together, you can change it as you wish and it is much easier for people to choose Windows Phone. We think the dual OS can be a new choice for the consumer. It will be on sale in the US in Q2.”

In January, at the Consumer Electronics Show, Intel displayed a chip created for such dual OS devices. It means that the concept is not new and not only used by Huawei but Intel may reveal their new products also.

Microsoft Introduces ReFS (Resilient File System) For Windows Server 8

Posted By: Poketors - January 20, 2012
The very next generation file system ‘ReFS‘ for Windows 8 has arrived in the market. Microsoft explained about this in its blog post. ReFS stands for Resilient File System which is built on the foundations of NTFS, as usual it is compatible at the same time it has been architected and engineered for a new generation of storage technologies and for large infrastructure .

ReFS will be introduced only as part of Windows Server 8. At the application level, ReFS stored data can be accessed from clients just as NTFS data used to be or in use.

The key goals of ReFS are:
  1. Maintain a high degree of compatibility with a subset of NTFS features that are widely adopted while deprecating others that provide limited value at the cost of system complexity and footprint.
  2. Verify and auto-correct data. Data can get corrupted due to a number of reasons and therefore must be verified and, when possible, corrected automatically. Metadata must not be written in place to avoid the possibility of “torn writes”.
  3. Optimize for extreme scale. Use scalable structures for everything. Don’t assume that disk-checking algorithms, in particular, can scale to the size of the entire file system.
  4. Never take the file system offline. Assume that in the event of corruptions, it is advantageous to isolate the fault while allowing access to the rest of the volume. This is done while salvaging the maximum amount of data possible, all done live.
  5. Provide a full end-to-end resiliency architecture when used in conjunction with the Storage Spaces feature, which was co-designed and built in conjunction with ReFS.
The key features of ReFS are as follows (note that some of these features are provided in conjunction with Storage Spaces).
  1. Metadata integrity with checksums
  2. Integrity streams providing optional user data integrity
  3. Allocate on write transactional model for robust disk updates (also known as copy on write)
  4. Large volume, file and directory sizes
  5. Storage pooling and virtualization makes file system creation and management easy
  6. Data striping for performance (bandwidth can be managed) and redundancy for fault tolerance
  7. Disk scrubbing for protection against latent disk errors
  8. Resiliency to corruptions with “salvage” for maximum volume availability in all cases
  9. Shared storage pools across machines for additional failure tolerance and load balancing

ReFS inherits the features and semantics from NTFS including BitLocker encryption, access-control lists for security, USN journal, change notifications, symbolic links, junction points, mount points, reparse points, volume snapshots, file IDs, and oplocks.

Data stored on ReFS is accessible through the same file access APIs on clients that are used on any operating system that can access today’s NTFS volumes.
