Apple’s request to block Samsung Galaxy tablet, phone sales in the US is denied.
As the legal drama between Apple and Samsung drags on around the world, US District Court Judge has rejected Apple’s request to block the sales of Galaxy devices. Reuters reports the ruling came out late Friday, with the judge deciding “It is not clear that an injunction on Samsung’s accused devices would prevent Apple from being irreparably harmed,”. This isn’t the first rejection for the folks from Cupertino either, after a request to speed up the trial was also denied back in July. The case itself will of course go on, but this means you’ll still be able to get your hands on those Galaxy Tabs, Galaxy S IIs, and the like in the meantime

Google has again strike back  with its new look for the you tube. Google has been involved in series of changes in its look for its products since the launch of G+ or even before. Now its time for You Tube to take part in the transformation process. Yes, Google has came up with the new look to its video sharing website You Tube from Thursday.

YouTube has reprogrammed its website to make it easier for viewers to find and watch their favorite channels.The new look has been made to make the You Tube similar to the cable TV. In the process, YouTube owner Google Inc. hopes to make money selling ads.The changes are part of the biggest renovation that YouTube has undertaken since Google bought the site for $1.76 billion five years ago.

Apple applies for ‘digital handshake’ patent powered by invisible ink !
Time for the usual disclaimer, since we are taking a journey into the murky world of Cupertino’s patent applications — it’s just as likely we will never see or hear of this tech again as it is to wind up in the next iPhone. While everyone else is betting on NFC, Apple wants to use next-generation cameras and invisible ink to negotiate digital handshakes. Snap a picture of a cash register with a barcode and your iDevice will generate a unique ID to pair up — but in order to keep the technology secure, the codes would have to be painted on with “invisible” fluorescent coatings. When you’re pairing two iPhones (for example) to share contacts, the key could be generated on one of the screens while the other took a picture of it. If this all seems too complex, boring and pointless now, just think, this could be how we log into Foursquare in a decade’s time.

Google announced yesterday the Android Market has hit a new milestone – 10 billion apps downloads. The search giant also revealed the Android Market is a fast accelerating growth, currently at nearly one billion app downloads per month.
To celebrate, Google has partnered with various Android developers whose apps contributed to this reach this milestone, making some of their full apps available for just 10 cents for the next ten days.
Each day a new selection of apps will be available, starting with Asphalt 6 HD, Color & Draw for Kids, Endomondo Sports Tracker Pro, Fieldrunners HD, Great Little War Game, Minecraft, Paper Camera, Sketchbook Mobile, Soundhound Infinity and SwiftKey X.
Here is a screen shot of Android Market (Smartphone Version) !
Some 10 apps given as a starter offer…

Developing an application for an Os market has became an trend and also a most important part. In addition to the existing market like Android and Apple markets now Microsoft is all set to come to the market trend. For long time there was news that Windows app store will come and it finally made official.

The Windows Store will open in late February when Microsoft releases a test version of its next-generation Windows 8 operating system.It will take on Apple and Google in the booming market of fun, hip or functional programs built for smartphones, tablets, or computers.

“I think we are going to do great,” Windows Web Services vice president Antoine Leblond said as he gave developers and press a preview of the store in a San Francisco art gallery.
Independent developers understandably devote their limited resources to making programs for platforms that promise the most potential customers, and Windows would outshine Apple gadgets and Google Android devices in that regard.”There are more Windows PCs (personal computers) than there are cars on the planet,” Leblond said. “The number is staggering.”

Day by day the computer threats are rising exponentially. We all know about the scams that attacked most of the Facebook Accounts.

Linux interview questions
What is Kernel? Explain the task it performs. 
Kernel is used in UNIX like systems and is considered to be the heart of the operating system. It is responsible for communication between hardware and software components. It is primarily used for managing the systems resources as well.
Kernel Activities:
The Kernel task manager allows tasks to run concurrently.
Managing the computer resources: Kernel allows the other programs to run and use the resources

Resources include i/o devices, CPU, memory.
Kernel is responsible for Process management. It allows multiple processes to run simultaneously allowing user to multitask.
Kernel has an access to the systems memory and allows the processes to access the memory when required.
Processes may also need to access the devices attached to the system. Kernel assists the processes in doing so.

Java interview questions

What are Native methods in Java?

Java applications can call code written in C, C++, or assembler. This is sometimes done for performance and sometimes to access the underlying host operating system or GUI API using the JNI.

The steps for doing that are:

  • First write the Java code and compile it
  • Then create a C header file
  • Create C stubs file
  • Write the C code
  • Create shared code library (or DLL)
  • Run application

What are class loaders?

The class loader describes the behavior of converting a named class into the bits responsible for implementing that class.

Class loaders eradicate the JREs need to know anything about files and file systems when running Java programs.

A class loader creates a flat name space of class bodies that are referenced by a string name and are written as:

Class r = loadClass(String className, boolean resolveIt);

What is Reflection API in Java?

The Reflection API allows Java code to examine classes and objects at run time. The new reflection classes allow you to call another class's methods dynamically at run time. With the reflection classes, you can also examine an instance's fields and change the fields' contents.

The Reflection API consists of the java.lang.Class class and the java.lang.reflect classes: Field, Method, Constructor, Array, and Modifier.

SQL Server interview questions

Explain the use of keyword WITH ENCRYPTION. Create a Store Procedure with Encryption.

It is a way to convert the original text of the stored procedure into encrypted form. The stored procedure gets obfuscated and the output of this is not visible to

<<    SELECT statement>>

What is a linked server in SQL Server?

It enables SQL server to address diverse data sources like OLE DB similarly. It allows Remote server access and has the ability to issue distributed queries, updates, commands and transactions.

Features and concepts of Analysis Services

Analysis Services is a middle tier server for analytical processing, OLAP, and Data mining. It manages multidimensional cubes of data and provides access to heaps of information including aggregation of data One can create data mining models from data sources and use it for Business Intelligence also including reporting features.
Some of the key features are:
·         Ease of use with a lot of wizards and designers.
·         Flexible data model creation and management
·         Scalable architecture to handle OLAP
·         Provides integration of administration tools, data sources, security, caching, and reporting etc.
·         Provides extensive support for custom applications

What is Analysis service repository?

Every Analysis server has a repository to store metadata for the objects  like cubes, data sources etc. It’s by default stored in a MS Access database which can be also migrated to a SQL Server database.

What is SQL service broker?

Service Broker allows internal and external processes to send and receive guaranteed, asynchronous messaging. Messages can also be sent to remote servers hosting databases as well. The concept of queues is used by the broker to put a message in a queue and continue with other applications asynchronously. This enables client applications to process messages at their leisure without blocking the broker. Service Broker uses the concepts of message ordering, coordination, multithreading and receiver management to solve some major message queuing problems. It allows for loosely coupled services, for database applications.

What is user defined datatypes and when you should go for them?

User defined data types are based on system data types. They should be used when multiple tables need to store the same type of data in a column and you need to ensure that all these columns are exactly the same including length, and nullability.
Parameters for user defined datatype:
System data type on which user defined data type is based upon.
For example, a user-defined data type called post_code could be created based on char system data type.

What is bit datatype?

A bit datatype is an integer data type which can store either a 0 or 1 or null value.

Describe the XML support SQL server extends.
SQL Server (server-side) supports 3 major elements:
  1. Creation of XML fragments: This is done from the relational data using FOR XML to the select query. 
  2. Ability to shred xml data to be stored in the database.
  3. Finally, storing the xml data.
Client-side XML support in SQL Server is in the form of SQLXML. It can be described in terms of
  • XML Views:  providing bidirectional mapping between XML schemas and relational tables.
  • Creation of XML Templates:  allows creation of dynamic sections in XML.

PHP interview questions
What is PHP?
PHP (Hyper text Pre Processor) is a scripting language commonly used for web applications. PHP can be easily embedded in HTML. PHP generally runs on a web server. It is available for free and can be used across a variety of servers, operating systems and platforms.
What Is a Session in PHP?
A PHP session is no different from a normal session. It can be used to store information on the server for future use. However this storage is temporary and is flushed out when the site is closed. Sessions can start by first creating a session id (unique) for each user.
Syntax : session_start()
E.g. storing a customer’s information.
Explain the difference between $message and $$message.
$message is used to store variable data. $$message can be used to store variable of a variable. Data stored in $message is fixed while data stored in $$message can be changed dynamically.
E.g. $var1 = ‘Variable 1’
$$var1= ‘variable2’
This can be interpreted as $ Variable 1=‘variable2’;
For me to print value of both variables, I will write
$var1 $($var1)
What Is a Persistent Cookie?
Cookies are used to remember the users. Content of a Persistent cookie remains unchanged even when the browser is closed. ‘Remember me’ generally used for login is the best example for Persistent Cookie.
Explain the differences between require and include, include_once.
Include () will include the file specified.
Include_once () will include the file only once even if the code of the file has been included before.
Require () and include () are the same with respect to handling failures. However, require () results in a fatal error and does not allow the processing of the page.
What is urlencode and urldecode?

C  Questions

Note : All the programs are tested under Turbo C/C++ compilers. 
It is assumed that,
Ø  Programs run under DOS environment,
Ø  The underlying machine is an x86 system,
Ø  Program is compiled using Turbo C/C++ compiler.
The program output may depend on the information based on this assumptions (for example sizeof(int) == 2 may be assumed).

Predict the output or error(s) for the following:

1.      void main()
            int  const * p=5;
                        Compiler error: Cannot modify a constant value.
p is a pointer to a "constant integer". But we tried to change the value of the "constant integer".

2.      main()
            char s[ ]="man";
            int i;
            for(i=0;s[ i ];i++)
            printf("\n%c%c%c%c",s[ i ],*(s+i),*(i+s),i[s]);
s[i], *(i+s), *(s+i), i[s] are all different ways of expressing the same idea. Generally  array name is the base address for that array. Here s is the base address. i is the index number/displacement from the base address. So, indirecting it with * is same as s[i]. i[s] may be surprising. But in the  case of  C  it is same as s[i].

3.      main()
            float me = 1.1;
            double you = 1.1;
printf("I love U");
                        printf("I hate U");
I hate U
For floating point numbers (float, double, long double) the values cannot be predicted exactly. Depending on the number of bytes, the precession with of the value  represented varies. Float takes 4 bytes and long double takes 10 bytes. So float stores 0.9 with less precision than long double.
Rule of Thumb:
Never compare or at-least be cautious when using floating point numbers with relational operators (== , >, <, <=, >=,!= ) .
