Educational Buzz: 17 Countries now recognise Indian Engineering Degrees

Good news for holders of Indian Engineering Degrees . Engineering graduates can now easily apply to foreign universities of take advantage of international prospects as engineering degrees of India will now be recognized across 17 major countries. India has now become the permanent member of the Washington Accord which would mean access to countries like US, Japan, Australia. Washington Accord is an international agreement for accrediting undergraduate engineering degree programmes.

Although pass outs of IITs have not yet faced a problem in terms moving on and being accepted to colleges abroad but that is the least we can say about graduates from the other engineering colleges present in the country.

The Washington Accord aims at encouraging mobility and quality assurance across countries. Becoming a member of the Washington Accord implies that the engineering students of India are meeting the academic requirements necessary to take practice of engineering in any of the signatory countries.

Smriti Irani, HRD Minister was quoted by The Economic Times, having congratulated the officials of HRD ministry, "This will ensure highest quality assurance standards to be implemented in our technical and engineering programmes and provide global mobility to our engineering graduates. Graduates having degrees, which have been so accredited, would have substantial international equivalence of their achievement levels across the signatory nations. This will substantially enhance their employment opportunities around the world."

The efforts to be part of this have been going on since 2002, although a serious effort was only made by the Kapil Sibal, former HRD Minister, by including granting of autonomous status to the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) as it is necessary to have a national accreditation system by the Washington Accord to be a member.

Tech Buzz: Android Silver, which is touted as replacement for the Nexus series

tweet from the @Android handle has set the rumour mill abuzz about the next Google phone that could be an Android Silver, which is touted as replacement for the Nexus series, or a fresh new phone.

The tweet says "Android makes even the most difficult grocery store choices simple." But what has piqued the curiosity of android fans and tech enthusiasts is the fact that the phone that is shown in the accompanying image is neither a Nexus nor a Motorola device. It has no branding. Understandably enough, the tweet has set the internet abuzz with talk of a new Google phone that has possibly been teased via this tweet.


Google phone










S



Since there has already been a healthy amount of speculation regarding the new Android Silver for some time now, this tweet could be an indication that Google might come up with a new line-up in the near future.


Nexus 5, which was launched last year, is supposed to be the last device in the Nexus series. At the same time, Motorola has also launched its Moto X, Moto G and Moto E while being under the world's largest search engine. Motorola is no longer a Google company as Lenovo has acquired it, so the possibility of the tweeted picture being either a Motorola device or the next Nexus handset is bleak.


TechBuzz:Idea and IOC - LPG Booking Services and Delivery updates on Mobile

Idea Cellular and IOC have entered into a partnership that will allow over 82 million LPG consumers of Indane to book LPG 24x7 on mobile phones and get delivery status updates via IVR and SMS.

As part of the agreement, that is valid for two years, Idea will extend its 'smart gas solution' service to enable end-to-end automation on refill delivery process of IOC.

"The process starts from initiating booking request, billing, etc., and ends with delivery of LPG cylinder with regular updates to consumers, across the country," the country's third largest telecom operator said in a statement.

"The service allows Indane consumers to book LPG 24x7 and offers IVR (interactive voice response) and SMS based delivery status updates, without having to visit the distributor's outlet," Idea said.
The service has been launched in 45 cities and will be rolled out across India in the next three months.

"This has been one of the major e-governance projects for IOC and has not only helped us enhance overall transparency in LPG cylinder booking and real-time reporting...but also faster problem resolution and better experience for the consumers," Indian Oil Corporation Executive Director (LPG) A N Jha said.

Tech Buzz:The Moto Stream: A simple way of playing music with friends

A mere $50 gets you a good Bluetooth music streaming device from Motorola

This, folks, is the Moto Stream. It's a Bluetooth device that kicks music from your phone into a proper set of speakers. And that's all it is. It's not the Nexus Q reborn. For one, it's much smaller. And while it's cute in that icosahedronic sort of way, it just doesn't have the same feel that the Nexus Q did. Yes, both flash lights at you, but the Motorola Stream does so in a more muted, understated way. Not in that same sort of "Take me to your leader" way.

What the Moto Stream is, we'll tell you, is about $250 cheaper than the Nexus Q — which by the way was never actually sold — and is available now from Motorola for $49.99.

Motorola Stream


When one device takes over for another, the colors change.

Never mind the design — there's really no reason to overthink this device. It's a basic Bluetooth streamer that allows up to five devices to pair at once. (If you've ever used the BlackBerry Music Gateway, it's sort of like that.) Each gets its own color code, and each can interrupt the playback from any of the other connected devices. When they do so, their color will flash on the four front-facing panels. You'll have to know what your color is if you care about who's streaming, of course.

Mumbai Metro Started services: Maharashtra CM Prithivraj Chavan flags off Mumbai Metro

 The Mumbai metro will finally started commercial operations from Sunday, June 8, after a delay of three years, providing much-needed relief to commuters in the bustling metropolis where the overburdened suburban railways ferries seven lakh people every day.

Services on the 11.4 KM Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar stretch (Phase 1 of the project) will see trains available every four minutes, Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) Chief Executive Abhay Mishra said on Saturday.

The announcement by the operator came after local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Krit Somaiya threatened to start metro services by "force". For a city where the sight of harried passengers clinging precariously to doors and windows of overcrowded coaches of suburban trains is common, the metro will give a new travel experience.

The company has said it will operate 200-250 services a day, carrying around 11 lakh passengers. Every coach can carry 375 passengers and the entire train can transport 1,500 commuters.

The metro service comes four months after the city got the country's first monorail between suburban Chembur and Wadala on February 1 this year. The MMOPL has fixed a minimum fare of Rs 10 and a maximum Rs 40 for a one way journey, Mishra said.

The Maharashtra government earlier notified a fare band of Rs 9 to Rs13 but the MMOPL demanded high fares, citing cost escalation in the three-phase project, work on which began nearly eight years ago.

MMOPL is a joint venture company formed by Reliance Infrastructure, Veolia Transport and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority.

The Railway Board had on Thursday given its green signal for commencement of the services.
