Private Screening of Ctrl+Alt+Compete

I was really glad to be a part of private screening of a Microsoft movie Ctrl+Alt+Compete. I was duly keen to know what was the movie about and it’s theme when I heard about it. It grew more when I saw the Facebook group of MIC Nepal having the cover image of the same movie. So I along with one of my friend registered for the movie for 3rd June.554315_279133005517702_849408275_n

The movie was to start from 3PM. We reached the venue i.e. MIC Nepal at about 2:30 PM and rested somehow. Some of the audience were already there. We registered and donated the book we had and finally entered the conference hall where the movie was to be shown. The projector and the front screen was flashing with the advertisement video of Microsoft’s products. After sometime at about 3, Allen Sir and other MIC Nepal staff entered the hall and introduced themselves and about the MIC Nepal’s program currently.582269_279138262183843_687310937_n

Then the final film show started at about 3:50 PM with turning off all the LED lights that were glowing. It was hard for me to understand the movie at first but I gradually understood it. The movie included the 5 companies and the entrepreneurship of these companies. It also want to leave a message that if you are really dedicated, there are lots of helping hands like Bizz spark. The movie also want to convey that Big companies always dominate the small one.577050_279133238851012_100002630140103_554798_329780255_n

So personally I want to say everyone to view this movie and learn something.

An Exciting Day with Xbox and Kinect

Microsoft Innovation Center had organised Gaming Day on 27th April 2012. I too was there as the volunteer for the program with other 7 Microsoft Student Partners. The games that were there on the event were really exciting. Since the first session was not so packed, we (volunteers) too got a chance to taste all the Xbox and kinect games.

Sabeena and Tek Raj

The games on the Xbox and Kinect were really interesting. We have to be the character in the game and move our body accordingly to play the game. What an exciting that we move our hands left and right so that the car on the screen changes its direction. Other game "Microsoft Flight" made me a pilot for about 5 minutes. But unfortunately I could not safely. Others game were also too exciting and funny.

Driving a Car

The game named Dance Central was really exctiing, we have to chose a song and the game will show the steps and we have to dance accordingly. It can teach to dance on English songs. If steps were made right the points increases. Since I don't have the knowledge of dance I did not play this game.

The other games on PCs, Windows Phone were too exciting.

I am too thankful to MIC Nepal for organising this exciting event.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview pros and cons

I recently had a copy of Consumer preview of Windows 8. I was pleased to have it in the DVD pack but I was somehow disappointed it it took the form of  Operating System  of my computer.

 I am not going deep in this blog but rather will express what seen by a normal user

I was really impressed with the sliding start button tiles as sliding on a touch screen mobile phone or Ipad. The another thing I was impressed witth Win 8 was its IPV6 Network connectivity and the People and Chat application on the start tile. One of the additional feature for the user of WIndows 8 is that you don't have to search Adobe reader or any other pdf reader for the pdf files. The app named document reader can easily read the pdf files. Apart from this XPS viewer is also there in Windows 8 as in Windows 7. In another Windows you were seeing desktop at first but in Windows 8 you will see exciting start tiles at first after you are logged in.

Another important and online feature I glanced is the skydrive app in it. you should not go to the URL and select skydrive but there is an app and just login with your Microsoft account and share your files online. There are Music and Video apps to play videos and music from your account as well.

Now I was a bit disappointed when I could not play my PC's speaker in full volume with Windows 8. The another thing that I really was disappointed was some of the applications on the start tile didn't close and I was forced to use "Task Manager" to close these apps. I too was disagree with the position of "Power " button on Windows 8 as a normal user may not find it. I think the power and setting buttons in start tile will be best. I could not see the WIndows 8 logo when I see the system properties as I used to see in other version of the Windows. I hope it will be improved.

I want to close my blog and will be posting on what will I get in Windows 8 .

2. Blogs are generally freely hosted by the service provider whereas we have to pay to the ISP or hosting companies in case of websites.

3. We are bounded in the boundary of web languages syntax in case of blogs which is not in case of blogs.

After knowing these things about the blog. You might have a desire to have one under your name. Lets see how to get a blog on internet.

Why Genuined?

There are lots of pirated software in the market. There occur various issues with the software piracy. By the outer look you may not be able to distinguish between a genuine and pirated software. Let's see the advantages of using the genuine products. 

1. You receive the software documentation and instructions: if you are with the genuine software you receive the documentation as well as the manual for the use of the software. It's not available on the pirated software. Due to which you may be confused to use software and may not get needed documentations.

2. Receive technical assistance: With the genuine software you always receive the assistance from the provider or manufacturer which help you  to cope up with the problems arised during the use of the software. Technical assistance is not available on the pirated software.

3.Acceess to updates and upgrades: the genuine software will give you the updates and upgrades to you. Like if you are using a genuine software and a new version is available you can have easily access to it. But pirated software don't give you access to the new updates and upgrades.

4. Safe from legal issues: Genuine is the one product which is directly provided to you by the software manafacturer. The manafacturer provides the license to you so that you can have the full ownership of the product. There is no legal issue with genuine software.

 

Be a genuine software user and be proud yourself

Back again

We were really excited to be informed about the MSP meeting after a long gap of about 1.5 months. There has been several issues during the holiday period which I came to know when I came back from Morang from my nexus  at my college. Let's not discuss about the negative things here now.


The meeting was scheduled at 3:00 PM and I just arrived the venue at time. At first three persons of KU introduced about the KU IT meet which was going to be started on 27 nov to 28 Nov the three personals introduced about the camp. We were happy to know that they were going to include some of us ie. Microsoft Student Partners on their meet.

Similarly some of us has been selected to help the ICT conference by SM foundation on 16 and 17 November. Some of us were selected to make the facebook group a healthy place of discussion.

Then we were given the brief introduction about what are we going to do next. The major focus was on the phone application development by which we can earn fame. The program was scheduled as 2 days camp and 4 days apps development. It was really interesting to hear it. In six days a phone apps!!! It was also said that every apps developer will somehow be managed to attend the NOKIA conference and the apps developer will get a financial rebate too.

The most and happy thing was MSP Summit which was determined to be on December. But still there are something to be discussed on the topic. The topics are mainly venue and other issues.

After these all we were given a grant look of Score card for this quarter which has got 35 points to pass but Allen Sir commented on it and it was probable to be changed. Parina Shakya mam committed that she would make some changes on that and deliver us. After then the Meeting was ended.

Sky drive (an alternative for your flash drive)

We have been using the flash drives for various purposes like carrying files from one place to another. But what if your flash drive got lost with some very much important data or files with it. You may not have any option except to regret. But now there is no need to regret if you really use windows live services which includes a special cloud space interface named "sky drive".

What is a Sky drive?

It's an online file storing system that allows you to have 25GB of space online where you can upload the files that are important for you as well as you can share the files to others too.

Features of Sky drive.

  • Directly upload Office documents and photos within Hotmail, store them on Windows Live SkyDrive, and share them with other users
  • Directly save Office documents within Hotmail to Windows Live SkyDrive, and view or edit these documents directly within the web browser
  • Allow Hotmail users to edit Office documents within the web browser using Office Web Apps, and reply directly back to the sender with the edits made.

Why use sky drive?

In sky drive we don't have to worry about the loss of data since this is an online storage media. We too can access the documents from online web applications like office word, excel etc though we don't have installed them in our PC. So use "Sky drive" as a backup for your important files.
