“Sakshat” Low Cost Tablet Computer for Indian Students, Price Rs. 1100

The tablet computer, known as Sakshat, which translates as “before your eyes”, launched as part of a new Rs. 46 billion “National Mission for Education“. This envisages a network of laptops from which students can access lectures, coursework and specialist help from anywhere in India, triggering a revolution in education. A number of publishers have reportedly agreed to upload portions of their textbooks on to the system.

Its launching for students across the country is hoped to bring real affordable digital empowerment to people who cannot afford computing devices normally. It had started off as a Laptop under Rs. 500, then evolved to Rs. 1500 per device project. After that it became a Rs. 1600 Tablet and was set to ship in January 2011. That date wasn’t able to be kept for various reasons and a lot of skepticism regarding the project was in the air.

Kapil Sibal during the unveiling ceremony has stated that a million devices would be made available to students in 2011. The devices will be manufactured at a cost of 1500 (23 Euro) each, half of which will be paid by the government and half by the institutions that would use it.

Government(of India) announced that 10,000 (Sakshat) tablet will be delivered to IIT-Rajasthan in late June and over the next four months 90,000 more would be made available at a price of Rs 2,200/device.

The price of the tablet is going to be Rs. 2,200/- and will not be available to the general public. It will be given to children in educational institutions. Government will subsidize the cost by 50%, so a student would have to pay only Rs. 1,100 for the device.

Alert India Stuxnet internet worm threat

On July 24, CERT-In director general Gulshan Rai wrote to oil ministry director (vigilance) P K Singh and power ministry saying they had detected a malware that was exploiting a recently-disclosed zero-day vulnerability in Microsoft Windows Shell that was improperly handling shortcut files.

Singh warned that Stuxnet was targeting certain components of SCADA systems. The trojan, or a computer mole, installed by the malware detects SIMATIC WinCC and PCS 7 software programmes from Siemens, devised for SCADA systems, and makes queries to any discovered databases by leveraging default passwords.

In other words, the Stuxnet trojan takes over the password used by various components in a computer system for talking to each other. This is different from a user password for logging on. It can, thus, steal vital information from a computer system and change its functioning or even cripple it.

SCADA stands for supervisory control and data acquisition. It generally refers to computer systems that monitor and control industrial processes such as manufacturing, oil production and refining, power generation infrastructure or facility-based processes. Understandably, anyone who controls a malware that is able to bite into the system can play havoc and steal information to use it for programming attacks with more specific targets.

According to Singh, the malware spreads through USB drives and it can also attack via network shares and a set of extensions that allow users to edit and manage files on remote web servers called web-based distributed authoring and versioning (WebDAV) in industry parlance.

Adobe Flex Builder Professional v3.0.2

Flex is a free, open source framework for building highly interactive, expressive web applications that deploy consistently on all major browsers, desktops and operating systems. It provides a modern, standards-based language and programming model that supports common design patterns. MXML, a declarative XML-based language, is used to describe UI layout and behaviors, and ActionScript 3, a powerful OO programming language is used to create client logic. Flex also includes a rich component library with over 100 proven, extensible UI components for creating RIAs, as well as an interactive Flex application debugger.

Rich Internet applications created with Flex can run in the browser using the ubiquitous Adobe Flash Player software or on the desktop on Adobe AIR . This enables Flex applications to run consistently across all major browsers and across operating systems on the desktop. And using Adobe AIR, the cross-operating system runtime, Flex applications can now access local data and system resources on the desktop.


Adobe Flex Builder 3 accelerates Flex application development. It is an Eclipse based development tool enabling intelligent coding, interactive step-through debugging, and visual design of user interface layout, appearance, and behavior of rich Internet applications. Flex Builder 3 includes the complete Flex framework including compilers, component library and debuggers.

Flex Builder 3 is available in Standard and Professional editions. Both editions allow import of assets from Adobe Creative Suite 3, making it easy for designers and developers to work together. Flex Builder 3 Professional further adds powerful data visualization capabilities, the new advanced datagrid, memory and performance profilers and support for automated functional testing for developing business-critical applications.


You can get the complete Flex framework separately from Flex Builder 3 by downloading the free Adobe Flex 3 SDK. Developers can create complete RIAs using only the free Adobe Flex 3 SDK. The Flex SDK is also available as open source in the Open Source Flex SDK project.


Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES provides a comprehensive set of data-enabling features for using data in RIAs. It enables RIAs to talk to back-end data and business logic in a faster, more efficient operating model. LiveCycle Data Services ES also enables seamless integration with LiveCycle ES business processes and document services.

BlazeDS is a free, open source project providing Flex Remoting and Messaging to all developers. Flex Remoting provides a binary, serialized data transport format called the ActionScript Message Format (AMF) to provide a fast, efficient means of transporting data to your RIA which accelerates application performance. Flex Remoting also makes it fast and easy for developers to connect to back-end business logic and data. Flex Messaging adds realtime data push and publish/subscribe, both powerful capabilities now made easy. Using BlazeDS, you can start using these powerful Java server integration features for free, then subscribe to the LiveCycle Data Services Community Edition for certified builds and support, or upgrade to the full LiveCycle Data Services ES Enterprise edition for a complete server solution.


ILOG Elixir provides graphical data-display components to further enhance Adobe Flex 3 and Adobe AIR rich Internet applications. ILOG Elixir helps turn raw data into clear, actionable information through a highly graphical and interactive user experience. Components include: 3D Charts, Gauges and dials, maps of the world, radar chart, gant chart, tree maps and org chart.
