Intel Compute Stick is Now Available in India for Rs. 9,999 via Flipkart

Earlier this year, Intel announced the PC-on-a-stick, called Intel Compute Stick for $149, and six months since, has brought the device to Indian shores as well. The Intel Compute Stick will cost Rs.9,999 and will be sold via Flipkart and Intel’s own retail stores across the country.

The Compute Stick will ship with either Windows 8.1 Bing or Linux pre-installed and features a quad-core Intel Atom Z3735F Bay Trail processor, built-in wireless connectivity, on-board storage, and a micro SD card slot for additional storage – just about everything you need for a functional PC, albeit the display. You can plug it into any TV or monitor with HDMI ports to get started.

This tiny device can also handle media streaming via its HDMI 1.4a port, its other specs let you do much more. The Windows version of the gadget comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of flash storage, while the Linux Computer Stick only get half the RAM and 8GB of built-in storage. The 9,999 INR price tag is for the Windows variant, while the price for Linux version hasn’t been announced yet.

The Intel Compute Stick also features full-sized and micro USB ports, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. Interestingly, Intel has decided to go with a micro-USB port by default for the Compute Stick, but provides an HDMI adapter cable within the package.

It’s also interesting to note here that it is running the Windows 8.1 Bing which is technically same as a standard Windows 8.1, albeit with Bing as the default search engine on Internet Explorer. Being the case, we still don’t know if it can be upgraded to Windows 10 in the near future.

The Compute Stick seems to have some limited use cases – like using it as an entertainment hub at home or transform a display into a fully functional digital signage solution. Alternatively, users can opt for iBall Slendo, which looks pretty much the same as Intel’s Compute Stick, but is available for a cheaper price of Rs.8,999.

Note: The article has been updated to fix the part involving Windows 8.1 Bing.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
