A vision of Digital India

A connection between two regions can be achieved by constructing a bridge. The two regions might be different worlds on their own, but the bridge provides a path to merge them, to make them one, to provide an opportunity for the people from either of the worlds to explore newer verticals and achieve substantial growth. Well, here in this world of ours which we call “India”, the two regions are the government and the people. Many factors like illiteracy in rural areas, illogical belief systems, ignorance of the urban youth separate the government from most of the people in our country.  This is why we need a bridge called “E-governance” with “technology” acting as the pillars supporting that bridge. Once such a structure is setup successfully, I believe that we can easily achieve the vision of #DigitalIndia .

Generally, people in India are either misinformed or less-informed and either of them is equally dangerous. This is why I feel that we must utilize the willingness of many others, who could help connect the masses and educate them to self-sustain and be fully informed about the government, the services and benefits that they are provided with or those which can be availed.  So, I would like to share my opinions and thoughts on how technology along with people can help in creating a Digital India that can form a leading factor of the country’s growth.

The vision of digital India involves using technology paired with the internet to make people’s work easier with respect to the government services. It would also integrate various systems in the Government, business and customer environments to enhance the quality of information/service provided.

Firstly, I’ll talk about the rural areas that dominate India with villages and small towns. Most of the people here are farmers, masons, etc. where the literacy levels are low. Technology can be very helpful here. Smart phones are taking over the mobile markets and they are available at very low prices, and thus have succeeded in percolating to most of the people in these rural areas. So, a person in their community with some educational background and knowledge about the internet can educate others in the community about the internet and using it for searching and gaining the required information. Organisations such as Intel with their “Digital Skills for India” and Microsoft with their rural development initiatives have come up with solution to various problems like healthcare, business  and financial informative courses in multiple different local languages. But in my opinion, there could be other things added to this. Since using mobile phones requires only reading ability and experience in using it, even people with less or no education will understand how to operate it to get information regarding a particular topic. Following are a few points that I think can be implememted:

  • A universal application can be created that initially requires the people to select their areas of interest followed by their preferred language. Here Universal means that it should be built on an open platform that can support collaboration.
  • Once an open collaborative platform exists, people who know a language can become contributors to make the application available in not just a few languages but cover much more than that. Here technology can be used as a community tool for collaboration.
  • Panchayats can hold mandatory sessions to educate people on the government services provided and how it can be availed. This would require a minimalist approach to design the applications and mobile websites so that only the required information can be delivered easily without much of a hassle. Importance should be given to how the information is presented, because if it is complicated then the people will start rejecting it, irrespective of what information is being provided.

Also, e-governance can be enhanced by combining the various wings of the government. This would mean that we can integrate the various services and secure it in the cloud (for example), so that it can be accessible from anywhere.

Here is an example: If the systems used by agriculture department can be integrated with the education board for farming and also weather prediction board, and  if this integrated system can be enabled as a cloud service, then, in villages, the educated people can be employed for using these services to provide all the required information regarding agriculture, the weather analysis and education to farmers or other community members, all from a single service. It can then be used to analyse how this integrated service is working when compared to individual distributed services and this can form a quantitative measure of growth.

As an example in the urban cities of our country, a cloud service that integrates the development board of the centre and the development board of the state can enable every user to login and find out what the government is spending on and how the governments at these two levels are tied up.

Here are a few ways I feel technology can help e-governance in the urban world to create a digitized ecosystem:

  • Modern schools are shifting to tablets and PCs to inculcate practical based learning. And so, at the education level, the informational wing of e-governance can use technologies such as android applications or standalone software to provide interactive training to students regarding the various fundamentals of our government, right from our constitution to the government setup, or even to the present working scenarios. The interactive way of learning will not only engage students but could help in cultivating an idea growing habit among them. And thus a platform can be created where young minds submit their new ideas and viewpoints which can be analysed to provide key insights into the effect of government on the young minds.
  • Once the integrated systems are in place and are providing a wide variety of information, a forum can be provided for the people where they can login with their accounts and provide inputs on many of the issues, work or services taken up by the government. Thus here again, the analytics and mining technologies can be used to obtain a sentiment analysis of the people regarding an issue and this forms a feedback to the government about what the people feel about that issue or a service and also indirectly gets the people involved in the decision making process.
  • Technology can help people to get involved in government projects. Mobile applications can be used with the e-governance platform providing location based information about ongoing project near to a person. The app can then list out the work that needs to be done and the skillset required by the person to do it. People having the skillset can then volunteer in those projects nearby to them whenever they can. This way, community participation increases and the work can get done faster. Weather it may be cleaning a place, or a river, or spreading information about a new development plan or a project or to educate people on topics that concern them need voluntary participation and thus technology can help in achieving it faster. In this case the e-governance platform acts as a mediator or an information provider.

I think that achieving the vision of Digital India is possible through sustained and combined efforts of the organisations, people and the government. But the more challenging aspect is holding the achievement of being “Digital India”. Since many people tend to get ignorant very soon or think they don’t have time, the efforts put in might not reach its true worth. One way to hold what we would have achieved  is to make sure that technology will be used as a part of e-governance to helps people during their day to day life or probably during their work.

One way this can be realised is by using real time automated support systems to help the people of this country. Let me give a few examples:

  • If a farmer has to purchase fertilisers for his land and if he is unsure as to what to buy, he can use this government service portal (which is a part of e-governance), where the portal provides a set of fertilisers along with the damage it does and the crops it is used for. So here, the farmer can enter the amount of fertiliser that he thinks he needs, and the crop he wants to grow and the size of his farm. One these inputs are given the portal, in real time it should provide the required results . If he then changes one of the input parameters then the changes in results must also be shown instantly.
  • Senior citizens might be confused about the benefits given to them with loans or interest on a bank account. So here again, a real time system can allow them to use this helping service thorough a simple interface to click on what they are looking for and get the results. They can change the parameters to see how the benefits will vary and take an appropriate decision.

These are just some examples of using technology to keep the vision of “Digital India” alive and going.  And some or all of the opinions I have shared above might help to make full utilisation of e-governance.

I consider myself to be a responsible citizen of India and I look forward to participate and share the advancement that are being implemented in the field of e-governance. I would like to thank Intel for their support to achieve this broad vision of #DigitalIndia.

A Smartphone Journey with the New Moto E

The depth of my love towards technology cannot be described. Probably, it is as deep as the Mariana Trench (for those who don’t know, Mariana Trench is considered to be the deepest part of the world’s ocean, and yes there are many more geographical and scientific references coming up 😛 ). The very first thing that attracted me towards technology was NOT phones, but elevators.  I remember being amazed at this wonderful creation that could go up or down when someone would ask it to. But I didn’t stay a curious 6 year old for long. The moment I wrapped my head around the concept of elevators, I lost interest in it. All of them were the same, only the size differed.

But then there was something better, moving stair cases or as people call, “the escalator”. I was fascinated by its working, but then again, when I knew how it worked, I lost interest in it. The point I am trying to make is that, having love towards technology kept me looking for more advanced machines, but the moment I realized how it worked, it ceased to fascinate me and I would go about looking for something better.  It was this quest of mine that lead me to discover many new things and soon I found 2 specific gadgets that I remained interested about for years. It was the mobile phone and notebooks. But I still do have the “losing interest syndrome”, not as much as before though. My adventure with the notebooks is a completely different story. Sticking to the topic, I’ll share my escapades in  the world of mobile phones.

When I was young, I clearly remember my excitement with each new mobile phone that I got to see. There would be a cycle: first, I would think it’s the best phone on the planet, then go through all the features it had, find things that make it better than the other phones, declare it  isn’t the best phone in the world, play games, check out the ring tones, try to test its breaking point, get yelled by my parents and finally lose interest in that model. This cycle continued, and now that I have grown up, the cycle remains, but the checkpoints within it has changed, or I would rather say, “My curiosity cycle has matured.”

I remember playing with the old Nokia phones, the one with black and white displays, with only 5 to 10 ringtones and “the snake game” inbuilt in it. For the readers born in the 21st century, “yes, there existed such a phone and its specifications were, 1 inch black and white display, weeks of battery life, no music player and people did find that fascinating”. Coming back to the point, that phone was like heaven to me. I remember playing with it, pretending to be calling someone, and talking about it with my friends.That was the time when I chose to start my life as a mobile game player. Well, those were the times when people were smart and not the mobiles they carried.

Stepping a bit further in time, I would like to tell you my story with a company that changed my perspective of what mobile phones looked like.  I personally have a strong connection with this company, probably as strong as a chemical covalent bond ( google it up! :P) , and I’ll tell you why I feel I have this deep connection.

Years ago, I was in love with that company. It was Motorola. It was the time when Motorola was not just a leader but also a majestic driving force of technology. For those of you who don’t know about Motorola, here is a small composition about their innovations. They made the world’s first rectangular color tube for a TV way back in the 1960s. They made the world’s first 2 way pager, the world’s first Digital HDTV Technical Standard, world’s first GSM cellular network. They freaking brought the world’s first Commercial Portable Cellular Phone. And the world’s first list goes on. Such was their greatness.

Motorola had brought out a new phone, called the “Moto Razr” and soon followed it with “Moto Razr 2”.  I was awestruck. It was a phone so sleek and gorgeous yet powerful. I hadn’t seen anything like it. My friend had one, and I remember borrowing it from him, whenever we had time and using it. The buttons were of the same level, there was a glowing design, kind of etched on as circular rings that glowed when light fell on it.  The best part was the clicking sound it made when the display was flipped back. It was an amazing experience. This was the phase when I chose to start as a technology enthusiast and I  knew that this was my passion. This is why I love Motorola, for showing me what innovation can do through technology.

But soon, Samsung flooded the market with android phones, the love for moto diminished, there were much cooler things a phone could do and I got trapped into the new era of phones that were called “the smartphones”.  Before I could realize, the connection with moto I had was faded.

But Motorola is a true leader. It has proven to people like me what it is capable of. It has now bounced back with a new avatar called “Moto” and is back innovating and driving a niche filed of economic smartphone availability. I am guilty that I had lost the precious connection that I had with a company like moto and I do apologize to anyone, who was working extremely hard to resurrect Motorola. With the release of the new Moto E, all I can say is that, moto has now made the “world’s first complete smartphone”.

Some might ask, why would I say that the new Moto E is the world’s first complete smartphone?? Afterall, there are many others who provide better features at economical rates. Well, to people like that, here is my answer: “the other economical smartphone providers deliver inferior build quality and hardware. It is more like judging a book by its cover. It is not built to last long or to be useful. It is just built for the users to show off that their phones have some cool features, most of which are below acceptable rates. They are all built out of compromises to meet the economic level of pricing a phone”

But the new Moto E is eccentric. It’s rare to find someone providing something that is more than what it is worth. And that someone is Moto and that something is the new Moto E.  While the other economic smartphones are built out of compromises, the New Moto E is built out of innovation.

 I believe in keeping or owning things that I need and is useful and not just because “I might need something someday”. This is why, to me, the new Moto E is the lost connection to the company I admired. It has all the required features (which you will soon know), it has amazing build quality and it’s extremely economical, which means it has a strong potential to percolate to the remote places of India and among all kinds of people thus connecting a large part of the Indian population and indirectly support growth.

So, coming to the present, I am in the phase of my life where I start to discover myself, my career, my passions and I know that I have a whole new set of possibilities that are heading towards me and I would like to share some of the things that I choose to start with the new Moto E as a virtual companion:

Being a writer and a student is hard work. I have multiple things to do at once. My usual path of life makes me go through college and get a degree where as I love to write on the things that I learn on my own. I love writing on technical and technological advances. I like writing about things that I come across in life. But here lies the problem. Being a student I am restricted by budget on my spending and being a writer I need all the time that I can have to come up with something good. Being an affordable phone packed with so many features, it suits my budget and having a big enough phone like the new Moto E, I can write easily and literally write anywhere: During commute, break times, when I am stuck in traffic or at my leisure. Utilization of time is of the utmost importance and I believe that the new Moto E is the key to do that. With the improved battery, I needn’t even worry about the charge running out very quickly.  So, this is me choosing to start writing on the go!

Like most people, I am on my journey to find many things that I like to do. The things that complete me and things that let me explore, discover and express myself. Artistic views are said to be present in each one of us and I want to find mine. One of the things that I have wanted to do is capture people I meet. Hear out their story.  With the high availability of the internet, people are becoming active virtually rather than meeting real people. I had an idea to use the internet itself to encourage people to make real connections with others. I wanted to capture the moments with the people I meet and hear out their story. Then write about them.  The second door opening to start something new with the Moto E is capturing people. I can easily take pictures of people I meet, record conversations, shoot their creations if they have one, and share their story on a blog. I believe this way people can read it, watch it, hear them out and find the joy that I get by having true connections with people around me or the people we meet where we go and try doing the same. So this is me, choosing to start sharing, the true joy of human connections.

While I write I bring in my imagination, my creativity and the knowledge that I have together to create something that I feel is beautiful. But there is only so much that I can write, until I face a block.  The secret to have a continuous flow of thoughts is to keep feeding the brain and the soul with newer thoughts and things to ponder about and questions that make us think deeply. The only way to do it is to read.   Reading is indeed the stone to sharpen one’s mind.  I read, but I cannot always. Carrying books around is a real pain and an extra luggage. But with a smartphone like the Moto E, I can overcome that unnecessary bit of effort that needs to be put in.  With a new smartphone I choose to start a virtual library, with tons of books that I want to read or re-read, from where ever I am and whenever I want. With larger display, better battery and much increased storage, I can’t help but to stop thinking about all the books I can store and then read and learn from. I want my life to be a journey of discovery and visiting places I haven’t been before. As Dr. Seuss once said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go”. What better way than to have hundreds or probably thousands of books with me on my journey, for who knows what I’ll learn, what I’ll share! To me, this is one of the greatest things that I choose to start, reading without any hurdles, reading with hope!

 So, it is clear to me that having the new Moto E will be a start to a whole new set of experiences and I do hope that I get a chance to start new, start afresh and never look back.

Now coming to the geeky bits, the phone specifications:

PROCESSOR and RAM: The new Moto E has a 1.2 GHz quad core processor with 1 GB RAM. Trust me with my technical knowledge, when I say, “this is awesome”. With this much of power, app switching, graphic intensive gaming, usage of memory hungry applications is a breeze.

CAMERA: the new Moto E sports a 5 Megapixel primary Camera with autofocus. I am really excited about this one as, the older Moto E had a decent camera without auto focus but now with this addition makes it a level higher. Also an amazing addition is the secondary 0.3 Megapixel front camera. No one can complain that they cannot take selfies anymore.

STORAGE AND CONNECTIVITY: The new Moto E now has double the storage compared to its predecessor, making the total internal storage to 8GB and an amazing external expanding capacity up to 32 GB. It also has support for the Superfast 3G connectivity, placing it in par with many of the high end smartphones.

DISPLAY: It has a qHD 4.5 inch display. It is a bigger screen with sharp, crisp and bright display. You now know why with this phone, I choose to start reading and writing on the go. A  LCD display like this one, gives a fresh feeling and doesn’t stress your eyes too much, allowing you to watch great high quality videos.

BATTERY: The new Moto E now comes with a 2390 mAh battery, assuring long lasting availability upon mixed usage. This is significantly higher than the previous model, making this phone way better.

OTHER COOL FEATURES: The corning Gorilla Glass on the screen makes it a tough, water repellant surface and protects it from damage. The smudge proof coating keeps the fingerprint away. One of the coolest features is that, it now comes with the latest android, the Android Lollipop OS which means it has the latest software running making sure everything feels new.

Finally, coming to the cost, the new Moto E, costs Rs.7000 only. Now, for the readers who aren’t familiar with the Moto concept or the Moto E concept in specific, the above mentioned price isn’t a typo. The phone does cost only Rs. 7000. Isn’t that great? And for the people who know about the Moto E, I am sure that you are as excited and surprised as I am, that with such a large amount of improvements, the cost remains the same. This is truly wonderful and worth it.

So coming back to my declaration, I think almost all of you who disagreed earlier, will now agree that the new Moto E is the “world’s first complete smartphone”.

Happiness lies among the simple little things!

#IAmHappy

A smile,  a giggle , a roaring laughter. The warmth, the comfort, the sense of togetherness. These are the perspectives of happiness. To me, happiness isn’t the joy that comes by merely  possessing  materialistic things. That kind of joy is temporary and often delusional. True happiness lies in the moments spent with the people you love and the memories that you create and cherish from time to time.  Its the process that gives a person happiness and not the end result of doing something.  Every moment of your life well lived adds on to the happiness in your life. we can consider happiness to be a treasure trove,  filling up with the feelings, memories, experiences, that we have on a daily basis and before we know it, this treasure trove  transforms into a driving force that pushes us to do better in our lives and to pursue our passion and live our dreams.

The beauty of happiness is that, it is something that fuels people’s lives, so one cannot reach happiness and declare that is the end. It’s a continuous process and it stays with us, helping us until we die. The happiness that I have felt  in my journey of life are plenty. I have realized that my most happiest times are those that arise from the simple little things that people do, or the things that I do along with others. I vividly remember some of the best moments of happiness I have been a part of, and here I am, given a chance to share them. So, here is my meaning of true happiness, straight from my treasure trove:

  • happiness is eating a large bowl of chocolate ice cream.
  • happiness is returning home from a long trip.
  • happiness is finding a person with the same kind of problem that I am facing and knowing that I am not alone in this.
  • happiness is finding the missing bus ticket while on the bus.
  • happiness is choosing a new dish in a restaurant and that turning out to be delicious.
  • happiness is making a new friend.
  • happiness is sharing secrets with my best friend.
  • happiness is eating together with old friends, reliving the old memories.
  • happiness is succeeding in convincing a teacher, not to take a class.
  • happiness is convincing a friend, to jump into the pool.
  • happiness is planning and trying hard not to let my friend know  that we are having a surprise party for him.
  • happiness is the relief that I get upon knowing that me and all my friends have passed the exam.
  • happiness is going on a long ride outside the city.
  • happiness is learning something new, may it be driving or the art of talking to a stranger, without looking creepy 😛
  • happiness is waking up and realizing that  I am late and then realizing that its a holiday.
  • happiness is spending time with kids. Its pure bliss to hear them out, play with them and to capture that sense of true joy that they emanate and spread.
  • happiness is completing a task that initially seemed impossible.
  • happiness is feeling the true love shown to me by my friends and family.
  • happiness is making fun of each other.
  • happiness is scoring a goal in football or watching a match of your favorite team.
  • happiness is my family telling me, failure is not an end but a beginning.
  • happiness is the fruits of working hard.
  • happiness is helping others in which ever way I can.
  • happiness is playing my favorite music on my guitar.
  • happiness is knowing that there are people out there, reading things that I write, and some among them who like it and relate to it.
  • happiness is going to meet grandparents and enjoying the time spent with them and the food they make.
  • happiness is looking at things that I have created, though not significant, I know that it has been made by me.
  • happiness is coffee. to me its more than just happiness. Its nirvana 😛

I am sure that if I  don’t stop, then the list might form a book on its own. But these were  the sparks happiness that is going to remain with me for a long long time most of which will recur. Now that I have the best of them here as a blog post, I know for sure that even if my memory fades, these will help me refresh the best times I had.

I would like to thank Coca-Cola for giving me this awesome opportunity to share my moments of happiness. I must say, it was a true joy writing this post. Head over to http://CokeURL.com/96jnc, to find more happiness. #IAmHappy

Always remember, share your happiness, share your Coke 🙂 Here is an amazing  video, to get your happiness started

Start A New Life

This is a story of various existing pieces in my life, all falling into place to create a path towards a new life.  #StartANewLife 

Almost two years ago, I was advised to start a blog to  document all the technical things I learn. I took the advice and started This blog, “See The Source”. Initially, there were very few readers and the feedback I got from them was bad. That’s when I thought, “This probably isn’t for me”. After all, all that I was writing was something that was already existing, nothing new.  At the same time, I was experimenting with a lot of open source tools, trying to build software to make my work simpler and more fun.  As I learnt more things, I would apply them using computer code and creating something that was useful.  Both the blog and building small software/ tools wasn’t doing anything significant in my life at that point of time. It was just something that I did, because I enjoyed doing it.

It was after a few months of irregular blogging that I started writing articles on what I had built or did on my own for people to view and hopefully benefit from. And it worked. Though there weren’t a significant amount of readers, the ones who visited started liking the articles and found it useful. That was the time I started realizing that something unique does catch people’s eyes, but still, I was hesitant to post just anything I did mainly because I was afraid of the  criticism and the judgement I would attract on the work I had done. Thus, I used to review each and every article I wrote very carefully multiple times to make sure it is something that people might like and only then post it. Though this was working out fine, there wasn’t any improvement and I spent a lot of time reviewing existing work rather than to focus on building more new things. At the back of my mind I was still concerned about rejection.

Eventually, I was in a situation where I started working on many things ,but stopped blogging frequently  as it took a lot of my time in reviewing it and anticipating people’s reaction to it.  I did feel like posting all of it but held back. So, here I was sitting over a pile of great work that people would love but not sharing it for I thought I would be rebuffed on an international platform.  That is when I decided not to succumb to those anticipated fears any more and started posting all that I had. I stopped caring about what people would  tell  about it and just went all in on using this blog I had. I hadn’t thought that it would be recognized. And soon after, the readership of my blog increased each day, people from all over the world started reading it. Though there were negative feedback, there was more positive feedback and that encouraged me to push for more.

At the same time I was looking for a platform to use my skills and many people recommended freelancing. Though I searched a lot, I didn’t find the right platform for me. Just as I was about to stop looking for more, I found Fiverr.com . A platform to sell what ever one is good at. My field was technical writing , so I thought of setting up a gig for writing technology and technical articles. But then again, my old instincts kicked in and I stared feeling that this would only reduce my profile and would give me a bad name due to the lack of experience in this work. But That is when I took the BIG STEP and without thinking further, published my gig.

Within the first week I got my first gig and wrote an amazing article on a field I hadn’t worked upon earlier. That gave me  the conviction to put all I got into creating good articles and I did. Soon, my profile started looking better with all the positive reviews and I also had my blog to show people the work that I had done and the fields I had worked in. They loved it and many people come back for more. So this is how I  started a new life as a “Technical Content Writer” , one which allows me to combine two things I love, Writing and Technology.

Taking a step back, I can now see all the pieces:  My Blog, The Articles, The experience I gained from my work , The platform I discovered to use my skills and the fear that I conquered ,  falling into place creating a new life for me, one which I am enjoying the most and hoping to grow more with each day. The message I have for people starting out now is ,  though it may look small or insignificant, do not stop, and do not heed into public opinion on things that you love doing. They are just pieces and will somehow fall into the right place at the right time, unlocking the right kind of doors and allowing you to #StartANewLife.

It was a great pleasure writing this article, got an opportunity to share my story and I thank Housing.com for this.

Here is an an energetic cool video on starting a new life with Housing.com. Enjoy!

 

Time To Transform with the T100! (Windows 8.1 edition)

We are the children of the Internet”, and we need to be on it almost all day long. But to use it we need technology, a device built with state of the art equipment that allows us to stay connected with the rest of the world.  We need it to watch, share, store, and recreate the beautiful things around us. We need it to experience visually the places, and the beauty we haven’t got the opportunity to see with our own eyes. But most importantly, we need it to store the best memories, which will one day reflect our past, show us our “good old days”.

My life involves a lot of travel. From home to college or from home to music school, it’s a long journey, I am most of the day, on the move and the Public transport is involved deeply with my life. It not only takes me to the places I want to go, but also gives me a lot of time to spend, and I think about spending that time effectively. So here I have got an opportunity, to share how I wish my daily journey could be better. It’s the Time to Transform. And here is how a “Transformed” will keep me hooked on to it, Make my journey count, make me spend my time in an enhanced way.

So as I travel, I get the chance to see vivid pictures of people around me, whether it’s a man in deep thoughts or two people conversing, I also get to see people getting about their work, all trying to fit in well, in the big city. I like to interpret what they think and write about it. The thoughts that come to me at that instant are often forgotten. But with the T100, I can write about it the moment I experience something, describing my views and thoughts as it flows, capture everything without missing details. The T100’s light weight will be just perfect to hold and write about the awesome day that I experience. I also go on weekend treks to nearby hills and sunset points. There too I like to sit amidst the nature and describe its beauty. So here again ,the light weight T100 is just what is needed to carry it there, and just clip on the keyboard when I feel I have to write and drift away. And I can also take pictures of myself with the T100’s camera. But i feel the the best part about it, is the battery. Out in the treks, I don’t often find charging points, hence I restrict the use of my smart phone as the battery gets over fast. But the T100’s long lasting battery makes it the best thing I can have with me all day long, using it, to do the things I love. It is all that I want, packed and presented to make my life easier.

There are times when I get to see the same things over and over again. At that point I don’t feel like writing, that’s when music and games come into picture. And again, all I need is the same device. I being a technology enthusiast, love to know the specifications of a device. And this device runs the touch version of the operating system I have used since childhood, “The Windows 8.1”. And is also a gaming power house with processor capable of clocking at 2.2 GHz. I couldn’t ask for more. Just take it out and play hard. Or listen to music, and share it with someone who loves it too. I mean, it’s no more days of slow transfer to flash drives, the USB 3.0 does the fast transfers and it’s on the T100.

I am not new to ASUS. I have been using the N55 SL notebook for studies and project and to write. But now it is time to move forward, time to transform. So, to conclude, a user can see the T100 as a tablet or as a laptop, but what it actually is, is an ASUS’ flagship model, built  to give us the best of both worlds.

P.S: if you want to get transformed, or have a story similar to mine, check out the T100  HERE.
