Google to kill Chrome apps on Mac, Windows and Linux

Three years after introducing special apps that run inside the Chrome browser, Google announced Friday that it will be removing them from Windows, Mac and Linux by early 2018.  Google introduced those apps in 2013 as a way to offer new functions that weren't otherwise available on the web. Chrome browser apps also gave developers a way to write one app that would run across Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome OS. The apps come in two flavors: Hosted Apps, which are essentially installable web apps, and Packaged Apps, which are closer to a traditional app like those you might find in the iOS App Store or Google Play Store. The phase-out gives developers about a year and a half to figure out how to migrate their applications away from the Chrome browser. For Hosted apps, that's not too big a deal, since their functions reside mostly on the web. Users will be able to keep using the web app after the transition, but completely through the web.  For Packaged Apps, developers w

SAN FRANCISCO: American multinational online transportation firm Uber Technologies Inc. announced that it has acquired 'Otto', a technology startup whose aim is to make trucks self-driving.

Otto, a 90-person start-up includes former Google and Carnegie Mellon engineers, The New York Times reported. According to Uber chief executive officer and co-founder Travis Kalanick, Otto was co-founded earlier this year by Anthony Levandowski, an engineer who once worked at Google on self-driving technology and two other former colleagues to equip trucks with software, sensors, lasers and cameras so they will be able to navigate the highway on their own, EFE news reported. Levandowski will lead "combined self-driving efforts reporting directly to me -- across personal transportation, delivery and trucking," Kalanick said, noting that "when it comes to this advanced technology stack, Otto plus Uber is a dream team" and that "we now have one of the strongest autonomous engineering groups in the world." The acquisition of Otto follows Uber's recent opening of an advanced technology centre in Pittsburgh, in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon Universit

Mobile ATM a much needed Utility

As technology is building and we are getting used to it in cities. The same need is gradually growing in smaller cities and villages. The only way to tackle the need for technology there is by innovating products that can be use in any environment and can actually work in these places. TechnoPlanet with its innovative ideas and research has been involved in developing and partnering with organization’s already having the technology elsewhere and harnessing for use in India. M2M are the next generation devices everyone is talking about. The major used case for M2M is ATM’s these days. Making ATM’s available for masses at locations where it’s not possible to have one is the need of the hour. We have the products, which will not only make these mobile ATM’s work but cut the cost of using high-end devices and technologies for such initiatives. Our devices have ability to connect over any Last mile connectivity. Any kind of Authentication layer. Any kind of routing protocols La

Do you require a dedicated system administrator?

Technology has evolved so has administrator. Days have gone when people were needed to sit in front of System to monitor or manage it. With growing orchestrations tools and system remote manage capabilities. We really don’t require someone to be deputed to do administration on site. We require people to manage the floors and handle physical issues rather than management issues. Outsourcing Administration and Management of Server assets not only give organization peace of mind but quality Engineers to take care of their infrastructure with excellence. Day has come to take a step ahead and take on board organization as System Administrators rather than Resource with limited knowledge.
