Videocon Launches World’s First Windows 10 TV Starting at Rs 39,990 ($615)

Videocon has partnered with Microsoft to produce the World’s first Windows 10 powered LED TV which will come in 32-inch and 40-inch models. At a time when Android TVs, Tizen TVs and WebOS TVs are trying to grapple the nascent Smart TV market, it is indeed refreshing to see a Windows 10 TV. With Windows 10, Microsoft has been pitching it as WaaS (Windows as a service), and this looks like a new addition in that regard.


Before we shade any doubts on it, Videocon, the Indian company has already detailed that it can be used as a personal computer and will start retailing from the next month. The 32-inch variant will set you back by Rs 39,990 (~$615) and the 40-inch will cost you Rs 52,990 (~$815). The TV would be dubbed as “One Touch TV” and will come installed with Microsoft Office, Windows Store and all the other essential apps.

The company is expecting 5 percent of its sales from the next quarter to come from the Windows TV and after gauging the users’ response, they will also go ahead with the larger variants of the Windows 10 TV. Videocon will sell the TV across multiple sales channels in India and the after sales will be supported by their current service networks.

As of now, it’s not yet clear if the TV will offer a full-fledged Windows 10 experience like any other conventional machine and even if it does, how capable will it be when it comes to computing prowess. In the current scenario if one wanted a Windows 10 on their TV screens they need to buy a Windows PC stick which will act as a tiny Windows machine. Videocon seems to have taken away that stick and instead integrated Windows 10 directly in to the TV. Unfortunately, we still don’t know about the processor, RAM and other hardware details.

The Windows 10 TV will however host the usual bunch of connectivity features which includes 4 HDMI, 3 USB, VGA and the usual Audio input/output ports. Videocon has also integrated a soft of quick swap feature which will let users shift from the usual TV mode to Windows 10 mode by a simple click of a button.

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…
