WhatsApp ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature is finally here: Here’s how it works

If you have been sending messages to unintended recipients on WhatsApp and having awkward apology sessions thereafter, this piece of information will cheer you up. After working on the feature for quite some time, the message revoke or delete message for everyone is finally out of beta, and being rolled out to iOS users.
Starting today, WhatsApp is slowly rolling out the Delete for Everyone feature for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone users. As WABetainfo.comnotes, the feature allows you to delete messages in private chats or group conversations. The caveat here is that both the sender and receiver need to be on the latest WhatsApp version.
As is the case with a lot of new WhatsApp features, the Delete for Everyone feature is also being rolled out gradually and you may not immediately get the prompt for the update. The feature applies to text messages, images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, contact cards, files, locations, quoted messages, status replies, and stickers (a new feature expected to be rolled out soon)
How Delete for Everyone feature worksWhen you delete the unintended message, WhatsApp sends a fake copy of the message to the recipient. When the recipient receives that copy, their device won’t show the notification, nor will it save it in his chat history, but it will check if there is the ID of the message in WhatsApp’s database, locate it, and correctly revoke it.
The revoked or recalled messages will also be deleted in the notifications center on iOS. On Android, this message will be replaced with “This message was deleted for everyone”. For quoted messages, WhatsApp is currently not recalling the message that is contained in a quoted reply. Broadcast List also does not support message revoking ability. WhatsApp for Symbian also does not support the feature.
One of the most important things to note here is that you can only use ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature within seven minutes of sending an unintended message. Now this could be a little tricky given how millions of conversations are happening on the platform every minute and in group conversations, it is highly unlikely of members not seeing the unintended message almost as soon as it is sent. Secondly, WhatsApp will not show you the notification for message revoke. On Android, “This message was deleted for everyone” will be the only indication.

Light L16 Camera Uses 16 Lenses to Rival DSLR Quality and Convenience


The L16 camera developed by venture-backed California-based Light recently commenced shipping to pre-order customers. This marks the next phase of the company's plans for a novel optics architecture intended to match or exceed the performance of DSLR cameras, but do so from a more consumer-friendly unit.

The camera's design employs 16 different lenses and optical modules within the one chassis, capturing a scene at several different focal lengths and then applying algorithms specifically developed for the purpose to combine the multiple exposures into a single high-resolution image.

Although only slightly larger than a current smartphone, the L16 is designed to deliver significant improvements in image quality and photographic performance over that currently possible from consumer cameraphones, as well as capturing certain image information that a conventional camera would not gather at all.

"The problem that besets DSLR photography is the bulk of the equipment involved and the need to carry multiple lenses," commented Rajiv Laroia of Light. "Smartphones are much easier to carry, but cannot deliver the same image quality, which is frustrating for photographers using them."
Laroia, whose previous industrial background was in the comms sector for AT&T Bell Labs and Qualcomm before he turned to the optics of photography, designed a solution that would leverage both the recent advances in optical component technology that smartphones have spurred, and some novel systems technology developed for this particular purpose.

Adjustable depth of field

The L16 replaces the bulk and weight of a traditional single-lens camera with several small lenses and sensors, that lie at 45-degree angles across a flat plane. The internal architecture exploits some of the principles behind folded optics to keep the chassis height on a par with that of the smartphones which customers are used to carrying, despite the presence of 16 individual optics units delivering three different focal lengths of 28, 70, and 150 mm.

In use, the L16 intelligently chooses the best combination of the three different focal lengths for each scene, depending on the level of zoom, and adjusts its mirrors to support various fields of view. At least ten of the individual cameras fire simultaneously in each shot, capturing slightly different views of the same scene.

Xiaomi teases a new selfie centric smartphone series in India

According to media invites and Xiaomi's tweets, the company is gearing up to launch a brand new smartphone series in India on November 2. The images hint at selfie-centric smartphones from Xiaomi. That being said, there is barely any information out there about what exactly Xiaomi has in store for us, one week from now.
The media invites include an image that features a bolt, similar to what we’ve seen during the launch of MIUI 9. Some rumours suggest that Xiaomi could be launching MIUI 9 tailored for Indian users, but going by the images tweeted out by one of Xiaomi India’s official Twitter handles, it looks like there is more to it than just MIUI 9.



In addition to this, Xiaomi has also posted on its official forums that this brand new series “includes something you have been impatiently waiting for”. What this news series is about is anyone’s guess at the moment – there are no new Xiaomi phones that have been launched in China recently and are due for an Indian launch. It is possible that Xiaomi may introduce an entirely new series of devices in India (instead of China, this time), just like it did with the Mi A1, but there’s no concrete information about this by the rumour mills either.

ISRO planning to build secure quantum communications network.


Raman Research Institute (RRI) in Bengaluru has joined hands with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to develop the quantum technologies that ISRO's satellites would need to establish such a network.


After some delay, India is joining the handful of nations that have already embarked on a new kind of space race to build satellite networks for secure “quantum communications”. Existing communications systems are not hack-proof. Raman Research Institute (RRI) in Bengaluru has joined hands with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to develop the quantum technologies that ISRO’s satellites would need to establish such a network.
Quantum communication exploits a bizarre phenomenon of quantum mechanics – called “quantum entanglement” – in which photons (which are particles of light) are “linked” together in such a way that they affect one another no matter how far apart they are. They appear to be connected to each other, as if by magic, and behave as a single physical object.
Because a third party cannot tamper with the photons without destroying their “entanglement”, there’s no way to eavesdrop undetected. Under the memorandum of understanding signed recently between RRI and ISRO Space Applications Centre (ISAC) also in Bengaluru, the latter will fund the Quantum Information and Computing (QuiC) laboratory at RRI for developing the quantum technology tools.

Nokia is planning to launch a new affordable smartphone in January 2018

After launching mid-range and flagship devices, HMD Global-owned Nokia is gearing up to launch a new phone in the budget segment. The smartphone, dubbed as Nokia 2 is expected to be priced at Rs. 6,499, making it cheaper than the Nokia 3 which has been priced around Rs. 9,499.
The Nokia 3 is available in India at Rs. 9,499, and the Nokia 2 may be launched around Rs. 6,499. The device is aimed at first time smartphone buyers and comes with decent specifications for a sub-Rs 10000 device. It is expected to be first launched in the US in Black and White color options.
Nokia 2 expected specifications
The Nokia 2 is expected to run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with an assured update to Android 8.0 Oreo. It is reported to feature a 5-inch HD display and come with on-screen navigation buttons, unlike other Nokia devices that were launched with capacitive touch buttons.
In terms of performance, the Nokia 2 is expected to be powered by a 1.4GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor clubbed with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage with microSD expansion option. The device is expected to come with an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera.
The Nokia 2 was recently listed on US online retailer B&H, with the model number TA-1035 which is the same model number that was spotted on a FCC listing. The online retailer had priced the device at $99 but the listing has been removed now.
Being a budget device, the Nokia 2 will not come with a fingerprint sensor. It will come with dual SIM support and a huge 4,000mAh battery. The battery along with Snapdragon 212 processor should give the device a decent battery life.
Apart from the Nokia 2, the company is also working on the Nokia 9, that is expected to come with an 18:9 display, Snapdragon 835 processor and dual Zeiss lenses on the front and back. While the Nokia 2 is expected to be launched in November, the Nokia 9 may arrive in January 2018.

Govt plans to set minimum broadband speed to 2 Mbps from existing 512 kbps.



Government is planning to set minimum broadband speed to 2 Mbps from existing 512 kbps.

According to TimesOfIndiaTelecom secretary Aruna Sundararajan said the government was mindful of slow internet speed experienced by internet users in many parts of the country.


Internet speeds are nowhere close to the numbers promised by companies in 3G and 4G data packs and advertisements.

 And, the issue is critical as India prepares for rollout of 5G services as well as a host of other applications focused around internet-of-things (IoT). "We are very slow. While we have done a lot on (providing internet) access, we have not been able to actually deliver the quality of service that is required," Sundararajan told TOI here.



The telecom secretary said India required faster speed in the wake of gradual transformation of the country to a digital economy. These include initiatives such as smart cities, digital India programmes, efforts on digital payments, and 5G.




Asked whether 2 mbps - which is also being pushed forward by regulator Trai - will be sufficient for digital transformation, she said, "2 mbps is the basic minimum. We should definitely mandate this. If at all, it should be higher than that. It cannot be lower than that."

The Pirate Bay’s Iconic .SE Domain Name Is Up and running

he Pirate Bay’s iconic .SE domain name is the primary method by which pirates access their favorite torrent website. However, in a surprise development, last week, the domain name was deactivated.
It seemed as the historic domain name was expired and the people were no longer able to visit the notorious website. However, as per a new report by TorrentFreak, thepiratebay.se is now operating normally and sending the visitors to thepiratebay.org.
As per the Whois record of the domain, the registration has been updated to October 2018. However, it remains unclear if the deactivation of the domain was due to some court order or something else.
Earlier this year in February, Swedish Court ruled that The Pirate Bay must be blocked for next 3 years by the local ISP Bredbandsbolaget. The court stressed that the injunction was in line with the EU law.
As noted by TorrentFreak, the above-mentioned matter is pending in Supreme Court. So, it could have been possible that the website owners were unable to change the details.
Well, for the time-being, The Pirate Bay is up and running.
