Google’s hidden treasure [Google Art Project]

Let me guess…Like everybody else, you also have a passion for something and that is arts and culture? but don’t have enough time or money to travel around the world to visit and see what a beauty it is either natural or made by humans.
Every now and then comes a time where people adore artistic and cultural things but their affection towards it faint over the period of time as they don’t experience the events.
In this busy world, not everyone can travel to museums around the globe to see the beautiful art, designs, and craftsmanship. So Google just as before didn’t disappoint us and helped by bringing those astonishing crafts within our fingertips as they launched Google Art Project. The main purpose of Google Art Project was to bring the artworks at the museums all over the world within everyone’s reach.

What is Google Art Project?

Launched in the year of 2011 on February 01, the basic incentive for this project was to enable users to view artworks collected from different museums in different cities across the globe, to virtually tour the museums from the user itself.

Google recently collaborated with 151 art museums and galleries to publish the work by many artists. With tens of thousands of artworks residing on this platform. Google allows a museum or an art gallery to select one artwork which will be captured in ultra-high resolution, a gigapixel image containing a large number of pixels as compared to average digital camera

Technology Used:

To bring this project to us Google used multiple technologies mainly involved street view and Picasa. An indoor version of street view was created by Google the camera which was placed on a trolley could be moved around rather than a camera placed on top of a car.
Panoramic heads CLAUSS RODEON VR Head HD and CLAUSS VR Head ST made it possible to capture a highly dense Pixeled image for perfect viewing of the portraits.

Nokia 6 mobile phone is a much greater deal in the trio launched in the previous year with quite astonishing features.
The Nokia 6 (2017) is a Nokia-branded upper-mid-ranged smartphone running the Android operating system (version 7 Nougat). It is the first smartphone from a Finnish company HMD Global, created through the future interest of Nokia’s devices division having a 10 year licensing deal with Nokia for mobile phones and tablets, and the first Nokia-branded smartphone since the Lumia 638 in 2014.

Talking about the Design first, Generated from a single block of aluminum this phone feels great in the hands.
A 5.5-inch display phone and an 18:9 aspect resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 with volume and power buttons residing at the right-side. This phone has 2 fingerprint sensors one on the home button and the other at the back. Speakers sit at the bottom of the phone adjacent to the MicroSD slot.

Top 5 Programming Languages to Learn in 2018

programming languages 2018

This century is regarded as the Century of Information Technology. Let me tell you one thing, the key to a successful future in the field of AI/IT/CS is learning to code. Creating revolutionary software, that change the way of thinking, acting. Tending to make human efforts less stressful. Application development is also a process that helps you invent interesting apps for Smartphone.

Here we have carved out the finest, and popular top 5 programming languages a coder needs to learn in the year 2018. Yes, to better a skill or develop one, you need to think ahead a year. But worry not, we will be doing the thinking job for you.

What are the Programming Languages?

The answer to the aforementioned question is below. We have selected 5 best programming languages, on basis of their demands in stack overflow, freelancer, job market, and the startup. We have found for you the five essential languages you should pick either of them and begin your coding process at an instant.


Python makes the top of our list here, courtesy the Machine Learning. Whether we discuss the frameworks like Django to design web apps, or maybe the analysis of things. This language has made a great comeback, and impact after showing a dull sign earlier. Whether Facebook, Google or Apple are after the engineers having strong and thorough knowledge of Python. Implementing Machine Learning in any product, you got to have an acquaintance with the Python. Without a single doubt or second thoughts, I’d say Python has to make it at number 1 on this list.


Not as similar to Java keep in mind, beginners. You can say this language seems to be on steroids. The way it is growing. This is not the same JavaScript as the one introduced. It has evolved a lot with time, with the latest 2017 edition, it doesn’t seem to be reducing its popularity for quite some time.
JavaScript is capable of handling almost everything. Work with Node JS and rely on the backend with it. At the front-end, you can go with Angular or React. Talking about the mobile apps, ionic framework or the react native framework are completely capable of handling all the iOS as well as Android apps.
Which is why Facebook is completely shifting its globe to JavaScript (whether it is for their web or mobile Android/iOS systems). I haven’t seen any language growing this much as JavaScript.


Java is most powerful and superior language that can’t be neglected. Due to the increase in Android apps, and Android developers, interests in Java are increasing with time. Not just Android, many web applications are also designed in Java. Henceforth, Java makes our list of the languages to be learned. With Java, you can initiate the career as Android Developer.


The dotnet framework isn’t the reason why C# made it to our list. However, in the recent year, it is noticed, the DotNet framework is losing its charm. Game Development, is one reason why we inducted C# to our list. Since most may have the knowledge how the game development with Unity is booming quite a lot. Not only that but with Xamarin you are empowered to develop mobile applications (cross-platform). Meaning they can run on the Android as well as the iOS.
Also, it is not that difficult learning the language, it’s simple and easy to learn in my opinion. People from the dotnet market are already trying to make it to the game development as well as the Xamarin.


Whether you talk about 10 best programming languages or 5, Swift has to make the list. Its inevitable, inexorable to keep Swift out of the list. And the reason to that is Apple. People carry their own views about Apple, but you can’t deny Apple is a big deal in the software market. In case you plan to design and develop an app that uses Apple ecosystem (be it iPhone, iMac, iPad even a game) you need the Swift. You need an Apple device, to get into the Apple ecosystem. Which plays as an obstacle in the path. Do keep in mind, the market is huge, jobs are on offer, so it is worth a deal.

Why Prisma is So Popular ?

After Pokeman Go, Prisma is another tending app for smart phones users nowadays. It has attracted million of users in a very short span of time. The reasons of Prisma popularity are many and in this article we are going to talk about some of the secrets to know Why Prisma is So Popular.

What is Prisma and How It Works:

Prisma is a photo editing app launched by a Russian Developer Alexey Moiseenkov in June 2016. Initially it was only available for IOS user then and later on In July it was made public for android users too. After its release it becomes the top smart phone app in Russia and its neighboring countries.
Prisma app transforms your photo digitally to some of the popular artist paintings(artworks) like Van Gogh’s, Picaso and Many More. Unlike other photo editing apps like Instagram which only add a a new layer of filter to apply effect to Image, Prisma use the concept of artificial Intelligence and Neutral network through which it creates the artwork of an image from scratch instead of adding a new layer of filter to the original image.
The thing which makes Prisma unique is the use of Artificial Intelligence and Neutral Networks.In simple terms, AL and NN are the type of technologies which enables the machines to think and make decision as human do. In Prisma,these techniques are used to let machine identify original images and repaint them according to the selected artwork. This process is same like a painter who creates a painting from scratch.
Users can directly capture image from Prisma after selecting the artwork or they can choose any picture from their camera roll to turn the image into their favorite painting. The app provides up to 33 artwork filters and according to the founder more will be added in future.
During the process of artwork creation,Original image is also stored on the server of Prisma for a short span of time to improve the Prisma algorithm efficieny. The server of Prisma is located in Moscow,Russia.


The developers of Prisma are also working to expand the concept of art work to video and virtual reality. According to the Co-founder, the video version in under development but he is not ready yet to give details about the release date and its functions except a 360 degree Image on Facebook posted by CO-founder to provide a glimpse of how video art work will work in future.

Chrome Eats Almost 70% More Battery then Edge Browser

Chrome Eats Almost 70% More Battery then Edge Browser

To browse the internet, we always use a browser.Using Internet browser we can check email online, we can shop on the web, we can learn, earn from the internet etc. But do you know Internet browsers plays a significant role in decreasing battery life?
Keeping in mind this scenario, Microsoft, a World leading Company On Monday 20 June 2016, conducted a series of test to compare which browser last long on a laptop and dramatically it was prove that Microsoft Browser “Edge” lasts 70% longer on laptop then the famous Google Chrome browser.
Microsoft conducted two tests. In the first test, they ran Chrome, Opera, Edge, Firefox on the Surface Book(A two in one PC, that contains combined features of tablet and laptop).They automate a series of task like opening websites, reading articles, scrolling articles, watching videos. For all of this purpose, they used the popular sites like Facebook, Amazon, Google, etc. The test dramatically showed that the Surface Book using Edge browser was the last to long, It showed 36% to 53% increase in battery life.

In the second test, they conducted a video test in which they ran Google Chrome, Opera, Firefox and Safari on four different Surface Book respectively. They streamed same HD videos on each device.According to the result, Battery power consumption on Surface Book running Edge was almost 70% less than other browsers.Surface Book Running Edge browser ran for 7 hours 22 Minutes and 7 seconds while Surface Book running Chrome ran for only 4 hours 19 Minute and 50 seconds. From that result, It is cleared that Edge browser won by increasing battery life.
1- Chrome: 4:19:50
2- Firefox: 5:09:30
3-Opera: 6:18:33
4-Microsoft Edge: 7:22:07
Here is the Experiment Video:

From this experiment, It is clear that Microsoft is looking to win the browser race.More ever the company has announced to make it browser more battery efficient on the Window 10 Anniversary which will be on this summer. However, besides of all this effort, Edge still is very limited lacks in many important browser features as compared to chrome and other famous browsers.In addition to that, it is not available for Andriod or IOS users.

How to Hide File/Folder Using CMD Attrib Command

How to Hide File/Folder Using CMD Attrib Command

As a computer user, many time you encountered a situation to hide a file/folder from your PC/Laptop. The very common method to hide any file/folder from a PC is by changing the attribute of the file to hidden. The issue with this method is that, If anyone goes to folder option and then select the option “Show Hidden files and Folder”, then all the files which have the hidden attribute will be shown to him. To solve that issue, we can use the Attrib command in CMD (Command Prompt) through which any file or folder can be hidden and no one will be able to make that file appear except the one who is hiding it.

But before going on further, Let me give you very basic definition of CMD (Command Prompt) .CMD is feature in windows operating system through which we can perform our task by typing command instead of using Graphical Interface. So Instead of opening a folder by double clicking it, we can open that folder by typing command in CMD. Similarly, a folder or file can be hidden through CMD by typing a single command which is called “Attrib Command”.
Below are the Steps through which you can hide any file/folder by using CMD (Command Prompt).

Steps to Hide File/Folder Using CMD:

1-Navigate to the drive, which contain the folder/file to be hidden.
(In my case it is D drive)
3-Now If the folder/file which has to be hidden is directly in that drive then just note down the folder/file name you want to hide
4-But If the folder/file is in any folder/sub folder then go that folder, note down the file/folder name which you want to hide and copy the Address from the Address Bar.
(In my case my file which is to be hidden is a video named “1” and it is in the folder “Extra Stuff”).
5-Go to Start Menu and In Search bar type “CMD” .
6- Now If the folder/file which has to be hidden is directly in that drive then type the drive name which contains the folder/file to be hidden and then type colon.
Like D:
7-Hit Enter and then type Attrib +s +h file/folder name (Replace File/folder name with your file/folder name, Remember to hide a file,you should also have to specify its extension.)
8- If the folder/file is in any folder/sub folder of the drive, then write Attrib and after that put double commas ( “ ) and inside that double commas paste the address you have copied recently like :
Attrib +s +h “addressfilename.extension
In my case address is “D:Extra Stuff” and my filename with extension is “1.mp4” so my CMD command will be “Attrib +s +h “D:Extra Stuff1.mp4”. After doing this process hit enter.
8-Congo ! Your file has been hidden
9-To make file visible, again go to CMD and type Atrrib but this time instead of plus symbol use Dash Symobol (-) e.g Attrib -s -h Path/filename.

10-Your file is now visible

So this was a very easy method to hide a folder or a file by using Attrib Command in CMD.If there still some problem then feel free to comment, I will try to answer the question regarding this for sure! 
And finally give me one favor. I have done so much hard work to write this article so you have to share this article with your friends, family etc to spread the knowledge.

Now hope is that Microsoft will not destroy this purchase as they did it with their many previous purchases including Nokia!

Difference between Virus,Worm,Trojan and Spyware?

difference between Virus, Worm, Trojan and Malware

The most common mistake which peoples do is that they think that Computer Virus, Worm, Malware, Trojan horse and Spyware all are same, so they used them interchangeably. The real scenario in entirely different, these all types of threats are distinct from each other and In this article, I am going to give you a brief overview of what they are? And what is the difference between Virus, Worm, Trojan and Spyware?

Computer Virus:

What is Computer Virus?
Computer Virus is a program which attaches itself to another program to infect a computer. Most of the computer viruses attach themselves to executable files, so next time if you see a mp3 file with an extension look like .mp3.exe probably means that the file is infected with a virus. Most of the computer virus becomes active only when a user opens some infected file. As human virus which spreads human to humans, PC virus similarly travels from computer to computer. They can do several high to low priority damages to the computer includes data corruption, file loss, file modification, etc.
It is a good way to install any antivirus program.So, whenever any file is affected with virus, it alerts and remove that virus.
Do You Know?

The first computer virus was “CREEPER” which was an experimental program created by Bob Thomas.however, the first widespread PC virus was “BRAIN” which was created by the two Pakistani brothers Basit Farooq and Amjad Farooq to protect the piracy of the software which they made.

Computer Worm:

Computer Worm and Difference Between Virus and Worm
Unlike a virus, computer worm does not harm or corrupt any files but still they are much dangerous then virus. They are dangerous because they spread rapidly from one computer to another computer without the knowledge of the user and create unnecessary spaces, files, shortcuts’, etc. In addition to that, they also create unnecessary bandwidth for servers and other networks which can cause them to stop working.

There are many worms attacks have been recorded. Some of the notable attacks were: Melissa (which crash servers by sending users unknown emails causing million of dollars loss), Blaster, I Love You, SQL Slammer(which shut down the internet for a short span of time, In Korea Internet remain disconnected for almost 6 hours).

Difference between Virus and Worm ?

The main difference between virus and worm is that, computer virus only spreads when a user opens some affected file whereas computer worm spreads even without the knowledge of the user. In addition to that, a computer virus can corrupt files, folders, etc. whereas worm does not harm any file instead it creates additional space, files, shortcuts.

Trojan Horse:
