The Hindu Lies: Does Email Cause More Pollution To Environment?

The Hindu : Sci-Tech / Energy & Environment : Speaking of science - E-mails not all that ‘green'

I cant understand why such reputed newspapers get loaded with baseless articles nowadays. May be its time they hired people who are really familiar with technology and the internet when writing something about these areas. I was dumbfounded to see this article telling emails are not eco-friendly.

The Hindu thinks these companies like Google are IBM are one the verge to kill the world and pump out tonnes of C02 every day? Well, they are terribly mistaken. The efforts like 'Smarter planet' taken by IBM to improve renewable energy sources and Google's work that cost millions to support a greener planet(http://www.google.com/green/) are very clear examples of what their environmental policies of such companies. How senseless it is to say that emails are destroying the planet. I doubt if all the emails sent worldwide over the last year were printed out in paper would there be any tree left to print newspaper for tomorrow. If any reader needs a further dig in read the official Google Blogpost - http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/09/how-our-cloud-does-more-with-less.html

Google- our servers use less energy per user than a light left on for three hours. And, because we’ve been a carbon-neutral company since 2007, even that small amount of energy is offset completely, so the carbon footprint of your life on Google is zero.

I cant believe they publish article after reading some silly wordpress blogs (which is already closed down) without any credibility. Such a shame!

Building Autonomous Drone with Raspberry Pi and APM 2.8

I am a total newbie to hardware and was pushing my limits to see how far I can reach on with hardware projects (which sparked my interest lately). I have set out on a very ambitions mission to control a drone from raspberry pi.I began the research for this around 2 months ago and had brought a raspberry pi, drone body kit and apm flight controller. The key difference of this project from common drone projects is that I'm trying to avoid the use of and RC and instead use the raspberry pi to control it. 


Hardware Installation Setup:
I am using APM 2.8 and Mission Planner.I am using RPi 3 to control the APM 2.8 via Telem port of APMI am planning to power the apm via the battery to ESC (Electronic Speed Controllers)

Now, documenting my steps below:

ICFAI Sikkim Distance MBA Review From My Experience

After a long research I joined for the ICFAI distance MBA program in 2012. Now I've completed 2 semesters ( as of 2013 ). I wanted to write this review so that people who are looking for a good MBA program can get a hand-on review about the distance MBA offered by the ICFAI Sikkim. I've been through all the cycles of this program and this review might help you make the right choice about the program. This article presents my own ( and unbiased ) view of the program and is in no way associated with the course provider.


Is the MBA ICFAI Sikkim Approved By UGC?  As per the latest AICTE regulations, a distance education program must have the approval of a joint commission of  UGC- University Grant CommissionAICTE- All Indian Council for Technical EducationDEC- Distance Education CouncilICFAI Sikkim doesn't have this approval (don't get disappointed, it's not over yet). Only institutes and colleges affiliated to a University are required to take AICTE approval. So ICFAI be…

I'm quite a bit of an avid blogger as well. I purchased Dell mini just as it was launched hoping that it's compact and mobile architecture would solve all of my need as a programmer and a writer. Unfortunately it turned out that it was a worthless device.The rest of the story goes...

Buying a netbook for programming and blogging was one of the biggest blunders I ever made on choosing a machine. The screen was 11 inch and clumsy icons of the Windows were a disgrace all the time.The tightly arranged keys in the keyboard made typing a pain.
