EBay Buys German Technology Company Billsafe

EBay Inc said on Thursday it bought BillSafe, a purchase and invoicing technology provider with clients in Germany, and will combine it with its PayPal online payments service, in a move to strengthen its e-commerce capabilities in Northern Europe.

BillSafe's technology lets shoppers buy and receive an item and pay later once they get an invoice. It is the most common form of e-commerce payment in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland, eBay said.

EBay took a minority stake in BillSafe last year and now owns the entire company. The company did not disclose terms of the deal but said it would have no material impact on the financial forecast it gave in October.

The deal is eBay's latest this year to build its business abroad. In April it bought a Turkish auction site for $235.3 million.


Cold Wave Continues, Death Toll Touches 114 in India

Surya, Ravi Teja Coming Film In Venkat Prabhu Direction

Surya, Ravi Teja Coming With 3D Film In Venkat Prabhu Direction

It was earlier reported that Tamil star Suriya and Telugu Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja are teaming up together for a high action flick in the direction of Venkat Prabhu. Now the latest news is that, this movie will be shot in 3D format and director speaking with Hollywood technicians for roping in to the movie.

Director Venkat Prabhu while speaking to the media said, "I just narrated a line to Suriya which he liked. I am working on the full script now. The Hindi film Rao One which had Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role was shot in the normal digital way and later on it was converted in 3D format. I am shooting this film directly in 3D format.  I am discussing with Hollywood technicians for roping in to the movie."

This movie would be produced by Gnanavel of Studio Green. Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose music. The other Technical crew and lead cast is yet to be finalized. The movie will go on the floors in mid 2012.

LeapPad vs. InnoTab

The Toy Tablet Wars: LeapPad vs. InnoTab


Two of the hottest tech toys to crop up this holiday season are theLeapFrog LeapPad Explorer ($99.99 list) and VTech InnoTab Interactive Learning App Tablet ($79.99 list). Both toys are meant to mimic an iPad-style tablet, and both are targeted at the 4- to 9-year-old set. But which one is better? Depends on what you're looking for. We break down the specs of each system for you.

The LeapPad measures 5 by 7 by 1 inches (HWD) and weighs 1.9 pounds. The InnoTab is bigger and slightly lighter at 9 by 10 by 1 inches and 1.8 pounds. Both are made of plastic (with two color options), but the LeapPad feels a little sturdier in hand. The InnoTab has an innovative built-in kickstand that allows you to prop the device either in portrait or landscape mode. The LeapPad comes with two stylus pens, one with a string attached. The stylus can be stored in a magnetic slot on the right side of the device. The Innotab's stylus can be stored in a slot to the bottom right of the device. Both the LeapPad and InnoTab take four AA batteries.

The LeapPad offers 2GB of onboard memory, but there is no memory card slot to expand storage. In contrast, the InnoTab offers only 64MB of onboard memory, but has an SD card slot that takes 2GB to 16GB SD cards. Having more onboard memory, in my opinion, is a better option. While SD cards are certainly inexpensive these days and having the option to have up to 16GB of storage space is a boon, it can be annoying to require a memory card to download any games on the InnoTab. The LeapPad comes with a camera and video recorder built in, and can store any photos or videos taken in the device. While the InnoTab lacks a camera, users can connect the device to a VTech Kidizoom Camera to view photos and videos.

The LeapPad is $20 more expensive than the InnoTab, but the game cartridges available for both are priced identically at $24.99 (list), and the titles are similar (Dora, SpongeBob, etc.) You can also download apps for both devices from an online app store, for approximately $5 to $15 each. Apps include books, games, and videos, though LeapFrog adds Ultra e-books (interactive books with games) to its repertoire.

For more comparisons, check out the table below.

6 Strange Skyrim Bugs Found on PS3

6 Strange Skyrim Bugs Found on PS3

I'm a bad gamer. I still have yet to beat The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, despite putting 30 hours into it. I'm still playing, and I've enjoyed it, but I've barely touched the main quest beyond learning how to throw people off cliffs with my voice. I keep getting sidetracked and distracted. I also keep seeing bugs.
My playthrough of the PlayStation 3 version of Skyrim hasn't been as bug-filled as others', with reports of ruined save files and backward-flying dragons, but I've encountered my share of bugs. These type of glitches are common with expansive Bethesda Softworks games, though.
Warning: There are a few spoilers with this list.
The most notable bug I found was in Markarth, where I went into an abandoned house with a priest to find out why it's haunted. It turns out a demon lord's shrine is under it, and he forced the priest to attack me. After I killed him, I went down to the shrine where the demon lord mocked me. Then I stood there. Then he mocked me again. Then I stood there. Then he mocked me again. I couldn't move or do anything. Since I couldn't get out of the position, I had to restart the PlayStation 3.
Then the game froze when I moved between maps.
I was stalked by a dragon who landed near my position and immediately died. Usually killing dragons is a lot harder than that. Fortunately, he died "correctly" and I was given a dragon soul to power my voice.
Then the game froze when I moved between maps.

Hockey India demands Bharat Ratna for Dhyan Chand

With the government paving the way for sportspersons to be conferred with the country's highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna, Hockey India has requested the Sports Ministry to bestow the honour on late Major Dhyan Chand.

In a letter addressed to Sports Minister Ajay Maken, HI welcomed the modification of rules and urged the government to confer the prestigious award to Dhyan Chand for his unparalleled contribution to Indian hockey.

Dhyan Chand is acknowledged as the all-time great of the game and is probably the only Indian sportsman that has generated number of myths about his ability as a hockey player, a release from HI stated.

Hockey India has requested the Sports Ministry to bestow the honour on late Major Dhyan Chand.

In view of Dhyan Chand's rarest of rare achievements, there is no other deserving sporting icon other than him to be considered for the coveted title, the release added.

Dhyan Chand is credited with scoring over 1000 international goals during his illustrious career spanning over two decades starting from 1926.

He also won three successive gold medals at Olympic Games at Amsterdam in 1928, Los Angles in 1932 and Berlin in 1936 and was the first Indian sportsman to be conferred with the Padma Bhushan Award in 1956.

Is The Eurozone Heading Towards A Breakup?

The health of the Eurozone is dire. What started out as a sovereign debt crisis in a minor periphery economy of the Eurozone, Greece, has now morphed into a full-fledged crisis involving the giants — Italy and France. It was always clear that if the crisis spread to these bigger economies there would be very few credible tools to prevent a meltdown. But here is where we are now. So which way forward?

The markets need to be persuaded that there is no reason to panic wholesale. The shortage of liquidity should not push solvent economies into insolvency. Italy cannot remain solvent if it has to borrow at interest rates over 7 per cent. The European leaders have done extremely well at sticking their heads in the sand and waiting for the problem to explode. So, is there any room for optimism? In my opinion, there are a few rays of hope.

One is the positive development on the political front. The replacement of Silvio Berlusconi with Mario Monti deserves a global cheer and the appointment of Lucas Papademos as prime minister of Greece is also a plus. Both have a good understanding of the economics at play and have the right vision for reform: Fiscal prudence and growth-enhancing reforms to reduce debt to income ratios. At the minimum, Monti will make a better negotiating partner with Germany and France than his predecessor.
The Euro is under pressure because many countries don't satisfy the parameters needed to be in the Eurozone.

Two, it appears that the European Central Bank (ECB) will embrace its role as the 'lender of last resort'. The ECB has the capacity to bail out the sovereigns and the banks since it can print all the money it requires. The two arguments for withholding large-scale buyouts by the ECB are the fear of inflationary pressures and the creation of moral hazard, the legitimate concern that if it offers to buy out the debt then this will limit pressure on the troubled economies to undertake much-needed fiscal reform.

The change in leadership at the ECB with the replacement of Jean-Claude Trichet with Mario Draghi has tilted the stance of the ECB towards more pragmatism and less of an obsession with inflation fears. This is evident in the interest rate cut that Draghi instituted soon after taking over and the recent statement where he offers a quid pro quo: In exchange for aggressive deficit tightening, the ECB will consider aggressive intervention in buying troubled sovereign debt and thereby placing a ceiling on interest costs.

More broadly, the recent joint intervention by the major central banks in response to the dollar liquidity shortage is hopefully a precursor to future joint interventions that will raise market confidence. It is important that central banks around the world are able to maintain their independence and respond optimally to the crisis given their mandate. The recent pressures from political groups and governments on central banks serves no good purpose.

The other significant development in resolving the Euro area problems is the new emphasis on a fiscal union. The argument is that in the absence of rules like balanced budget requirements, fiscally mismanaged economies become a burden on other countries in the union. This is based on the assumption that the Euro area cannot credibly commit to not bailing out countries when they face the risk of default. For, if they could, the markets would hold each country independently accountable for repayment of their debt and countries like Greece would have to borrow at a premium over Germany.

The interest differential will put pressure on the mismanaged economy to address its fiscal issues. In other words, if the European Union can credibly commit not to bailout countries in distress, then the markets will automatically regulate the level of deficits they can sustain.

Given the recent response to the crisis, credibility has taken a huge hit and consequently the call for greater fiscal union. Regardless of where the debate on fiscal union settles, it should not be used as a pre-condition for addressing the current liquidity crisis. Altering the union treaty requires going down a long and uncertain path and the Euro currently does not have the luxury of time. The recent reference by German chancellor Angela Merkel that the solution to the current crisis will take the form of a 'marathon' is another misreading of the crisis.

Overall, I believe that there is still one last chance to save the Eurozone: One, there remains sufficient support among large swathes of the population in the Eurozone countries to make this work. Two, it is well understood that the costs of a collapse of the Euro will far exceed the Lehman crisis. Three, there are a 'few good men and women' in power to forcefully deal with the crisis and turn things around. But the clock is ticking. 


The Best Google Chrome Extensions in 2011

Google Chrome continues to dazzle us at PCMag and that goes for the rest of the Web browsing world as well. Now up to version 17, Chrome remains our Editors' Choice for browsers because it's super-fast and has excellent security, bookmark and preference syncing, and strong support for HTML5. The browser tipped into greatness in late 2009 when it started to support extensions to give it almost unlimited customization.

The Chrome Extensions category of the Google Chrome Web Store has exploded since then, going from 300 to 11,500 in just the first 14 months. Two months ago, the extension gallery got a major facelift. Now, it's even easier to find the best items to install for extra features while surfing (albeit on a never-ending scrolling page full of icons).

We figured, why make you search and search when we can simply tell you what the best are up front? Here's our list of 22 fantastic extensions that all Google Chrome users should know. They'll increase productivity, security, and make the overall experience of using this already-great browser even better. Try them all and if you don't like them, typechrome://extensions into the browser's address bar, which lets you disable or remove all of them. You can also right click an extension's icon to ditch it. Disagree with our list? Have something to add? Tell us about your favorite extensions in the Comments area.


1. Xmarks Bookmark Sync

If there's an extension that's necessary for users of multiple computers—and even multiple browsers on the same or multiple computers—it's Xmarks. It ensures that your bookmarks, tabs, and even passwords are synchronized no matter what browser you use, be it Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or IE.


2. LastPass
The PCMag choice for encrypted password storage and filling out forms is available across platforms and browsers. Naturally, you'll want it on Chrome. Use it and the full installer to import all passwords stored with other tools like KeePass, 1Password or Roboform, as well.


3. Evernote Web Clipper
If you haven't set up an Evernote account, then you're probably not storing much data from the Web. It's practically the gold standard for quickly clipping info, even entire pages, for future reference. The clipper extension is a must-have for making quick storage to Evernote a breeze. You can then search through the data at a later date.

offline google mail

4. Offline Google Mail 
This extension lets you access your Gmail account even when there's no Internet available (such as on your commute). You can read whatever was downloaded before and write new messages in the browser interface. Next time you go online, it synchronizes everything so messages send and new ones are received.


5. exfm music 
If you love music and visit a lot of music sites, exfm music is an extension you need to know. When you hit a page with MP3s on it, an exfm player pops up to stream the music, which continues even after you leave the site. If you want to share what you find, or find out what your friends are listening to, social networking links are standing by to assist you.


6. IE Tab
In the days when Internet Explorer dominated, the browser forced a lot of developers to create websites that supported it directly. Some continue to haunt us. If you must visit such dark recesses of the Web, you can use Chrome. Just install IE Tab, so the IE rendering engine can be utilized to display the pages in question.

MacBook Air vs. Ultrabooks

The Apple MacBook Air has always been on the pricey side. Despite being more portable than a regular laptop and more capable than a netbook, the MacBook's $1,299 price tag put off a lot of potential customers. In response to this, Intel has set a strong pricing guideline for ultrabooks of $1,000 or less, but only two manufacturers have made it, Acer with the Aspire S3 and Toshiba with the Portege Z835-P330. Our review unit of the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s rang in the highest at $1495.99, but for the price it offers an Intel Core i7 processor.

Most of the ultrabooks have matched the MacBook Air's Core i5 CPU and 128GB solid-state drive (SSD). The Lenovo bumps up the storage capacity to 256GB, but the highest capacity drive belongs to the Acer Aspire S3, which pairs a 320GB spinning hard drive with 20GB of flash memory.

The 5-hour battery life of the MacBook Air was matched by a 5-hour minimum requirement from Intel, but most of the ultrabooks have exceeded this. The leader of the pack is the Toshiba Portege Z835-P330, which beats out the MacBook Air by nearly two hours.

3 Scientific Breakthroughs That Could Change Our Lives

        When chemistry professor Daniel Nocera at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology showed that a device the size of a poker card could split water into hydrogen and oxygen, he was merely taking a leaf out of Mother Nature's playbook, except that he called it 'artificial leaf'. Fashioned from silicon, electronics and catalysts, Nocera's leaf mimics photosynthesis. When placed in about three litres of water, this 'leaf' produces a day's supply of electricity to an average home in a developing country. "One can envision villages in India and Africa purchasing an affordable basic power system based on this technology," says Nocera. Ratan Tata believes in the technology and forged a collaboration earlier this year.

Turning the Body's T-cells into Cancer Killers
In the game of one-upmanship that most cancer cells display in the human body.
3 scientific breakthroughs that could change our lives

In the game of one-upmanship that most cancer cells display in the human body, it's unprecedented that the tumours get blown away in a few weeks. So, when scientists at the University of Pennsylvania's Abramson Cancer Center and Perelman School of Medicine found a full year of cancer remission in end-stage Leukemia by using patients' genetically engineered T-cells (the human body's immune system cells) to kill cancerous cells, it was hailed as a milestone. The results not only provide a potential roadmap for other cancers such as ovarian, lung and skin, but also an effective treatment with far fewer side effects than traditional chemotherapy.

Indoor Farming

Growing bananas, strawberries, yellow peppers and a host of other veggies under the blue and red glow of Light Emitting Diodes (LED) is not the average idea of indoor farming. After all, the greenhouse has been in existence for a long time. A group of Dutch bioengineers at PlantLab believe that the extraordinary pressure on food production requires extraordinary breakthroughs in agriculture. Using LED glow, night and day are simulated and synchronised with the plants' circadian rhythm, often shorter than the 24-hour cycle. With constant temperature and 90 per cent less water, this indoor futuristic farm uses no pesticides and increases crop yield by a factor of three. With shrinking farmland, burgeoning population and uncertain climate, the LEDs might just prove a key technology in increasing food production.

India beat Turkey in World Women Chess C'ship

Led by Koneru Humpy, the Indian women's team cruised to an emphatic 3.5-0.5 victory over Turkey and jumped to fourth spot after the end of the second round of the World Women Team Chess Championship here.
Kubra Ozturk denied India a complete whitewash against the hosts by holding International Master Tania Sachdev to an easy draw, while on the other three boards the Indian girls had no problems in ensuring sweeping victories.
China came back strongly from a near-shocking start to beat South Africa 4-0, while Russia recorded a 3-1 victory against Ukraine.

China and Russia now share the lead with Georgian eves, who scored a minimal 2.5-1.5 victory over Armenia.
With seven rounds still to go in the 10-team round-robin event, China, Russia and Georgia have four match points, while India now stands fourth on three match points.
Not far behind are Armenia and Vietnam with two points in their kitty, while Ukraine is now seventh with just one point that it secured against India in the opener.
Turkey, Greece and South Africa share the last spot, yet to open their match point account.
South Africa, in fact, are yet to open their score on any boards.
The Turks had started with a very satisfying 1.5 points against highly fancied China in the opener but Humpy ended chances of a similar performance with clinical precision against Yildiz Betul Cemre.
For the records, it was a queen pawn game wherein Humpy exerted pressure on the queen side to get two connected passed pawns. After regulation exchanges, the players reached an endgame which turned out to be child's play for the Indian ace.
Before Humpy's triumph, Padmini Rout and Soumya Swaminathan had ensured Indian victories over Kardelen Cemhan and Ebru Kaplan, respectively.
Tania Sachdev could do little against Kubra Ozturk in a Queen's Indian defence game as black on a day when the think-tank decided to give Harika a rest on the second board.
Harika flew in directly after a hectic event in China and still played the first game against Ukraine that ended in a 2-2 draw.
Ukraine could not continue with the same promise that they showed in round one and lost to Russia. The victories for the winning team came on board two and four where Tatiana Kosintseva and Gunina Valentina proved superior with white pieces while the other two games were drawn.
Georgian top board Nana Dzagnidze provided a much needed clincher for the team scoring over Elina Danielian of Armenia on the top board. The other three boards were drawn keeping the Georgians atop the tables.
After a 0-4 whitewash in the opener, Greece lost narrowly to Vietnam while South Africans were no match for wily Chinese girls.
Results - Round 2:
India (3) beat Turkey (0) 3.5-0.5; Ukraine (1) lost to Russia (4) 1-3; China (4) beat South Africa (0) 4-0; Georgia (4) beat Armenia (2) 2.5-1.5; Greece (0) lost to Vietnam (2) 1.5-2.5.

Indian women fetch bronze in hockey tourney

The Indian women's hockey team notched up a facile 4-1 win over Ireland to clinch the bronze medal in the four-nation tournament held in Parana, Argentina.
Both the teams were locked 1-1 at half time but India came back strongly in the second session to fire three goals.
The goal scorers for India were Jaspreet Kaur (penalty corner 7th min), Anuradha Thokchom (58th min), Vandana Katariya (68th min) and Ritu Rani (penalty corner 70th min), while Aine Connery (7th min) sounded the board for Ireland.

Ireland took an early lead in the seventh minute with the lone goal scored by Connery after a defensive lapse by the Indians.
India restored parity when Kaur found the target from a penalty corner in the 26th minute after an Irish defender obstructed Vandana Katariya in the striking circle.
India dominated the proceedings in the second half and exhibited their flair as they mounted attacks with regular monotony.
Goalkeeper Yogita Bali and deep defenders Pinky Thokchom, Kaur and Preety Sunila Kiro stood tall and thwarted all moves by the Irish attackers. Anuradha Thokchom put India ahead in the 58th minute when she beat Ireland custodian Emma Gray with a deflection from a right flank cross.
Katariya increased the lead to 3-1 in the 68th minute when she found the mark after Ritu Rani and Asunta Lakra combined a midfield manoeuvre. India rounded off the tally at the death with Preety Sunila Kiro scoring from a penalty corner variation.
The team will return from Argentina on Wednesday. World champions Argentina beat South Africa 2-0 in the final to win the tournament.

Indian market loses trillion-dollar tag

After Tuesday's(20-12-2011) sell-off, Indian market has lost one more key title — that of being a trillion dollar market.
As the market barometer Sensex plunged to a fresh 52-week low, the total size of the market on Tuesday dipped to Rs 52,60,441 crore, measured in terms of total value of all the listed companies in the country.
With the Indian rupee closing at 52.88 per dollar, India's market capitalisation has fallen below USD 1 trillion in dollar terms.
The Indian market had first achieved a trillion-dollar size about four and half years ago on May 28.
The market size has been hovering above the trillion- dollar mark for last few days and an eminent miss was averted on Thursday last week, when the RBI managed to reverse the downfall of rupee after a record fall to Rs 54.30 level.
On 31st December 2010, total market capitalisation of BSE was at Rs 72,94,571 crore.
The Indian market had first achieved a trillion-dollar size about four and half years ago on May 28, 2007, but moved out of this coveted league about a year later on July 1, 2008.
India again joined this elite club of markets with trillion-dollar valuation about a year later on June 3, 2009.
The Indian market was, in fact, seen inching towards the two-trillion dollar mark at least twice in the past -- first in early 2008 and then at the beginning of 2011 with a size as high as USD 1.9 trillion.
However, a sharp plunge in the market this year has led to its valuation falling by close to Rs 20 lakh crore (over USD 500 billion) and currently faces a high risk of losing its trillion-dollar tag.

Law Exams in India

Reading a lot and staying up-to date with the current affairs from across the globe is the simple formula to crack the law entrance exam. At the most basic level, this profession requires people, who can apply common sense to everyday and extraordinary situations, think well on their feet and love proving a point. The entrance exam tries to gauge this aptitude and does not require students to cram facts.

Many law entrance examinations open the window for students to get into this line of work. This includes the common law admission test (CLAT), the law school admission test (LSAT) and the Delhi university law test, to name a few. State boards and regional law schools also conduct their own entrance tests. While the CLAT and LSAT can be taken by students after class 12 and their scores are accepted by law schools offering a five-year undergraduate law programmes, the Delhi University exam is a three-year undergraduate law programme offered to graduates in any discipline.

Started in 2008, the CLAT exam is an all India entrance examination conducted by 11 National Law Universities for admissions to their undergraduate (LL.B) and postgraduate (LL.M.) degree programmes. There are only 1100 seats available in these Universities, out of which only 500 seats are for General category candidates. These law Universities include, The National Law School of India University (NLS), NALSAR University of Law and the West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences.

Discussing this entrance exam, Daniel Mathew, assistant professor of Law at the West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences mentions, "There is no magic formula to ace the entrance as this is mainly an aptitude test. A student's ability to read and comprehend English, their current awareness, logical reasoning and legal aptitude are being tested. No background knowledge of law is required for this exam".
