North Korea to launch Satellite:US warning

North Korea is ready to launch a satellite, an official said Wednesday.

On Wednesday morning, the North Korean government invited a group of journalists to visit the General Satellite Control and Command Center, located some 20 km northwest of Pyongyang, reported Xinhua.

Paek Chunghou, general director of the facility, said that workers had placed the satellite on the rocket and fuel is being injected into the rocket.

"We're sure that we will be successful," he said through an interpreter.

Asked if North Korea would launch the satellite Thursday since the weather condition is currently very good, the director said he was still awaiting the order for the exact time to launch the satellite.

North Korea announced last month its decision to launch the Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite, an earth observation satellite, between April 12 and 16 to mark the 100th birthday of late country's founder Kim Il Sung.

The announcement has triggered strong reactions from the US and North Korea's neighbours South Korea and Japan, with all three countries pressurizing Pyongyang to halt the plan.

Calling the planned satellite launch as "provocative" and "inconsistent with its commitments", the US suspended planned food aid to the country March 28.

On Feb 29, the two countries announced that they had reached a deal, under which North Korea agreed to suspend nuclear enrichment activities as well as long-range missile launches and allow international inspectors back into the country, while the US would provide the country with 240,000 tonnes of nutritious aid.

South Korea also maintains that the satellite launch could be a disguised test of a long-range missile.

Both South Korea and Japan warned that they could intercept the rocket if it or its fragments threaten to hit the two countries.

SONY XPERIA S launched at.. 32549INR

Sony Mobile Communications Tuesday launched Xperia S handset in the Indian market at a price of Rs 32,549, along with three other devices.

These are the first phones to be made available in the country since Sony Mobile Communications became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation earlier this year post its split with Ericsson.

The flagship smartphone Xperia S has a 4.3-inch scratch resistant TFT touchscreen, along with 12.1 mega pixel camera and 1.5GHz Qualcomm dual core processor.        
The pricing of the other devices -- Xperia P, Xperia U and Xperia Sola -- was however not disclosed.

Sony Xperia P has 8 MP camera, 2. 4-inch reality display, Mobile BRAVIA engine, 1 GHz Qualcomm dual core processor Android 2.3 Gingerbread (upgradeable to Android 4.0 ICS) and 16GB memory.

Sony Xperia U and Sony Xperia Sola have 5MP camera, 8GB memory and Android 2.3 Gingerbread (upgradeable to Android 4.0 ICS).

"Of the 150 million phones sold last year in India, about 10 million were smartphones. The category is growing at 70 percent and we estimate that by 2015, one in two phones sold would be a smartphone. This is the potential that we see in the smartphone category in India," Sony Mobile Communications India Managing Director P Balaji told reporters here.

As part of the Sony group, the company is in a stronger position to bring connected entertainment experiences to consumers in India, he added.

When Yuvraj Singh set foot in Delhi after India had won the World Cup, it was his "happiest moment in the capital". A year later, the batting star returned to the capital on Monday morning after another "victory". This time, he just looked relieved as he tried to keep his emotions in check in the face of a battery of cameras and microphones. 

"Thank God I am home" was all he said. But the sentence captured his rollercoaster ride through hell and back these past few months.

Yuvraj was returning from England after successfully completing the four-month chemotherapy course in the US for treating a malignant tumour on his lung. He walked out of the T 3 departure lounge through a side gate at 10am and was greeted by a sea of mediapersons and fans.

His mother, Shabnam Singh, who was by Yuvi's side as he battled his illness in Indianapolis (US), termed the Team India all-rounder's return after fighting off cancer as "having won the World Cup again".

As fans and onlookers greeted him with loud cheers, the southpaw acknowledged them with a wave of his hand. He then quickly got into a waiting car and drove straight to his Gurgaon house. There too, a fresh set of followers and mediapersons welcomed him. Overwhelmed, the nostalgic cricketer emerged on his balcony, waving his hands, smiling and thanking everybody.

Sources close to the family said for next 10 days Yuvraj will be at home, resting and recuperating from jet-lag. Sources confirmed that he will not rush back to the field. Doctors who treated him in the US have said he shouldn't push himself.

"He will not start everything immediately. If he is feeling good after a gym session, he can continue to do that," a source close to the cricketer said.

Yuvraj's diet will be normal. His mother said that he will be on 'organic food' cooked at home. Another family source said Yuvraj plans to watch the IPL matches of his Pune team in May.

"Right now, his only plan is to rest at home," he said.

iPhone 5 Rumours

 Soon after the launch of the new iPad, the rumour mill has turned its attention back to the the next-generation iPhone. Speculations are rife that the new iPhone, unofficially dubbed the iPhone 5, will come out in June. Let's see what all the rumours have to say:
1. The new iPhone is expected to hit the market in June this year, reported Mashable. Quoting a Foxconn recruiter, Mashable said, "people will see a new iPhone in June this year. In an interview with TV Tokyo's World Business Satellite, the recruiter said that the iPhone would be headed our way this summer, when a reporter asked the recruiter how many people the company was looking to hire. He answered: We are looking for 18,000 employees...for the fifth-generation phone." Further, the reporter clarified that the recruiter was talking about the iPhone 5, and in return the recruiter added that the next generation of the iPhone will come out in June.
Considering Apple's new strategy of not naming the product, it can not be said that whether it will be called the "iPhone 5" or the "new iPhone". It will, however, be the 6th iPhone from Apple. After the release of the iPhone, the company launched an iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.Top 10 iPhone 5 rumours

2. Apple's new iPhone will have a sharper and bigger 4.6-inch "retina" display, as reported by Reuters. The high-definition "retina" display contains several times as many pixels within the same area. However, its major display suppliers LG Display and Samsung Electronics Co declined to comment.
3. The new iPhone is reported to be 4G LTE compatible, It seems more likely now after Apple released an iPad with 4G support.
4. Reportedly, Apple is working on a smaller dock connector for charging and data transfers to help make extra room in its portable devices.
5. According to a report from Citigroup technology analyst Richard Gardner, Apple has no desire to sell cheaper smartphones. The company believes in producing great products, as it considers that customers are willing to pay more for them. So, The next-gen iPhone could be more expensive.
6. The iPhone5 could have a quad-core A6 processor, according to reports. But it does not seem plausible as Apple is not known for upgrading the technology so fast. Before the launch of the new iPad, people were expecting it to come equipped with A6 processor, but it did not happen and their hopes dashed when the company unveiled the A5X-powered iPad.
7. The upcoming iPhone is said to come packed with an updated version of Siri and a better battery than the existing one.
8. It is speculated that Apple might include Near Field Communication (NFC) technology in the iPhone 5, which allows for simplified transactions, data exchange and wireless connections between two devices in close proximity to each other.
9. If rumours are to be believed, the new iPhone will not be slimmer than the iPhone 4S.
10. Considering the fact that Apple is scaling up its production and its vendors are hiring more people, the initial launch of the iPhone 5 is expected to happen in more countries including India.
