Let’s begin by defining internet. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope, linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies. The Internet works because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network. This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority. Internet is built around the idea of openness. It allows people to connect and exchange information freely, if the information or service is not illegal. Much of this is because of the idea of net neutrality.
Net Neutrality
Net Neutrality is the Internet’s guiding principle: It preserves our right to communicate freely online. This is the definition of an open Internet. It means an Internet that enables and protects free speech. It means that Internet service providers should provide us with open networks and should not block or discriminate against any applications or content that ride over those networks. Just as your phone company shouldn’t decide who you can call and what you say on that call, your ISP shouldn’t be concerned with the content you view or post online.
Without Net Neutrality, cable and phone companies could carve the Internet into fast and slow lanes. Net Neutrality is crucial for small business owners, startups and entrepreneurs, who rely on the open Internet to launch their businesses, create a market, advertise their products and services, and distribute products to customers. They use the Internet to reach new customers and showcase their goods, applications and services.However, despite lack of formal rules, ISPs in India mostly adhere to the principal of net neutrality.
While the Internet helps make the economy more efficient due to increased interconnectivity, the gap between the top 1 percent and the rest of the world has still increased drastically. Developing countries insufficient access to the Internet has only furthered this inequality. In an effort to lessen the divide, Facebook (FB) founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg launched in 2013 to provide the entire world with affordable Internet access. While many users in developed countries consider Internet access a basic human right, global Internet access remains is non-existent in several developing nations.However, bringing Internet access to developing countries has several barriers to entry including lack of digital literacy, incentives, income and infrastructure necessary to support networks. In order to combat infrastructure constraints, the social network company’s Connectivity Lab is exploring aerial connectivity with drones and is a global partnership between Facebook and several telecommunication companies, including Samsung, Ericsson and Qualcomm (QCOM). has launched as a free-to-use mobile app in a number of developing countries, enabling users to access free basic apps such as Facebook, Bing and Google Search.

Launch and Problem in India(2015)
To use in India you have to be a Reliance Communications customer in Mumbai, Maharashtra, Chennai, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, or Kerala. To access free sites,Reliance users need to log onto from their phones using either Opera Mini or UC Browser for For an android device you can access these sites via the app(there’s no app for iOS or Windows Phone yet). If you try to access a site that isn’t a partner with, you’re charged for the data used. While Facebook claims to be all for net neutrality, it’s the selection of services on display that make its claims questionable.According to Facebook, doesn’t block or throttle any other services, or create fast lanes. We will never prevent people accessing other services, and we will not use fast lanes. We’re also open to including all mobile operators in, and we’re not stopping anyone from joining. We want as many Internet providers to join so as many people as possible can be connected.A DoT panel on net neutrality is learnt to have opposed projects like Facebook’s, which allow access to certain websites without mobile data charges, while suggesting that similar plans such as Airtel Zero be allowed with prior clearance from TRAI. According to the sources,the panel has stated however that “collaborations between telecom operators and content providers that enable such gate-keeping role to be played by any entity should be actively discouraged”.
Global confusion of with Internet
We have seen how people that have been suppressed in countries and regions have used service like Facebook – to mobilize and share information, which wouldn’t have been possible previously. Despite this tangible benefits,most people still thinks isn’t broadly a good thing. It skews competition. It’s not transparent. It doesn’t give people access to information outside of the services listed. And it isn’t the Internet. Most people using use Internet for the very first time and don’t have any clue of how vast the Internet is. The users of are confined to the selected websites and think that the 20-30 websites of is what the Internet is made up of. If this continues over a period of time the user would make his/her definition of Internet and would never try to explore outside the walled gardens of This in turn would restrict the meaning of Internet for the user to This is the problem which could end up in a very dangerous situation if a majority of the world’s population, billions of people, consolidate the idea that is the Internet.

After months of leaks and rumors, Chinese handset maker OnePlus recently announced the successor to its popular OnePlus One smartphone, describing the second generation device as another “flagship killer” launched on Tuesday.

The company did a brilliant job with the original, offering virtually top-end specs for a low-end price, while also creating desirability by making it difficult to get your hands on.
Here’s the full specs sheet for the new handset.

  • Dimensions: 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.85 mm
  • Weight: 175g
  • 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display with 401 pixel-per-inch density and Corning Gorilla Glass

  • 3/4GB of LPDDR4 RAM
  • 16/64GB of eMMC 5.0 storage
  • 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS)
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera

  • Oxygen OS based on Android 5.1
  • Fingerprint button

The OnePlus 2 follows the same exclusivity path, available through invite only, and it also follows the same morals – high-end specs, low-end price. On August 11th, the OnePlus 2 will be available in two configurations: a 4GB of RAM / 64GB model priced at INR 24,99 and a 3GB of RAM / 16GB model priced at INR 22,999.
Let’s take a look at some of the flagship features that are potentially missing from the OnePlus 2.

  • NFC
  • Wireless Charging
  • Removable battery
  • Quad HD Resolution
  • Expandable Storage

There’s no denying that the OnePlus 2 is certainly an impressive smartphone but to say the OnePlus 2 will kill the other flagships would be a little dramatic.

July- The month of Julius Caesar. July month was first called Quintilis in Latin since it was the fifth month in the ancient Roman calendar, It was changed around when January became the first month of the year. It was later changed to honor Julius Caesar, the founder of the Roman Empire, during the Julian calendar reform in 44 B.C.
New Horizons Pluto FlyBy: July 2015 surely belongs to Deep Space Science. We have witnessed history when NASA’s New Horizons gave us first real look at Pluto and it’s moons. New Horizons was the fastest object to leave Earth when it escaped our planet’s atmosphere at more than 36,000 miles per hour in 2006. Nine years later, it passed Pluto at a distance of just 7,800 miles, threading the needle through a target window less than 100 miles wide. And, somehow, all the science being done by the seven instruments onboard only consumes 28 watts of power.

Firefox Blocks Flash Automatically: On July 13, Facebook’s head of security publicly declared that it was time for the platform to die, and just a day later, Mozilla’s Mark Schmidt has joined in. In a tweet, Schmidt has announced that, as of the latest update, the Firefox browser will block Flash automatically. It looks as if the technology world has decided that if Adobe won’t do the decent thing and kill it, then everyone else will just tool up and beat it to death themselves.
