According to Microsoft, the Windows Upgrade Offer enables any individual who buys a new PC preinstalled with Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate between June 2, 2012 and January 31, 2013 to purchase an upgrade coupon for Windows 8 Pro for INR 699 (US $14.99). To obtain the upgrade, you must register at the Windows Upgrade Offer web site by February 28, 2013. When Windows 8 is made generally available—i.e. when the OS ships to the public, not when it is finalized, or released to manufacturing (RTM)—you will receive an email from Microsoft with a promotion code and instructions for purchasing and downloading the software. That is, the upgrade offer is for an electronic software distribution (ESD) version of Windows 8, or a downloadable file, which you can use to make bootable DVD or USB Setup media. (If you want Microsoft to send you Windows 8 on physical DVD media, you can do so for an additional charge.)

Now if you bought computer before 2nd June,2012. then......??? Windows 8 just of 699 if you already have XP, Vista or Windows 7 licensed version.

Now BSNL 2G Prepaid users opting in for the Rs. 98 GPRS pack will only get 1250 MB of 2G data instead of the previously offered 2 GB. while BSNL Postpaid user has to pay the same Rs. 89 for the pack and get reduced data usage of 1250 MB.

BSNL has introduced new plan of Rs. 125 with 2 GB of 2G DATA. while the same pack of postpaid users with Rs. 111 per month.

Hands on: Microsoft Surface Review

Microsoft’s Surface tablet PC made a big splash on the market. its highly publicized launch of a new tablet computer, I was really excited about it. Surface comes with two different model with different OS : Windows RT and Windows 8


Powered by an Nvidia ARM CPU, Surface has a few ports peppered around its sides, notably a USB 2.0 socket and a microSD card slot. The resolution of the 10.6-inch screen is unknown. Seeing as it's marketed as a ClearType HD display, while the beefier Pro model (out 90 days later and likely to be considerably more expensive), is pegged as Full HD, I'd wager this is a 1,280x720-pixel panel. What we can confirm is that it'll have a 16:9 aspect ratio, making it ideal for watching movies.


Standard Windows 8 replaces the fragmented versions of Windows 7 Home and Home Premium and will probably be the operating system of choice for the vast majority of you. Windows 8 Pro, as the name suggests, is for the professional user, and adds better encryption, PC management and domain control -- that's all the stuff your IT department will be concerned about.

Windows RT is the version you'll find pre-installed on tablets and devices based on ARM chips. These chips are smaller and use a lot less power, so you wouldn't want the same processor-heavy software from your PC running on your less capable tablet or phone. (Courtesy : CNET)

"The Surface" is ideal Windows 8 experience, as Google has their Nexus line of phones (and soon tablets) and if you've seen Apple's Smart-cover on the new iPad 3, then this method of connection won't be a surprise – it's another move that shows Microsoft is intending to go toe-to-toe with the Cupertino brand in the tablet arena.

Outer Look

Surface was designed to be your go-to-device. It comes with a precision crafted VaporMg casing that protects the vital technology inside and leaves a high quality finish and feel. The Windows RT-powered Surface will have an HD display which could indicate a 1366 x 768 resolution, however the Windows 8 Pro Surface will have a Full HD display


While both tablets have Wi-Fi, there’s no mention of Bluetooth in either of the Surface versions. You also don’t get the option of a 3G SIM slot with Microsoft’s offering.


The ARM version of Microsoft Surface has storage options at 64GB. The Surface with Win 8 Pro however will max out at 128GB, Approx 10GB will be used just for the OS itself.

How to put embed webpage to your blog using iframe

Sometimes you want to show other website page on your blog.. may be for reference or as people don't like to click on href much.. generally developer like to show most of links with visualization only.

Now.. to put iframe on your blog just two easy following steps:
1. use HTML to edit your blog
2. copy following code to your HTML part of blog
<iframe src ="URL of the website you want to embed" width="100%" height="400" frameborder="0">
<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
You can put an IFrame in either a blog post, or in a special page element. It's a dynamic window; when you change something in the blog contained in the window, the contents of the window changes too. Just refresh, and you can see the change.
here we have put <p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p> because if your blogger solution or client browser doesn't support iframe instead of showing them blank screen. it's better to show them a message.

Example :

Good Luck :-)
