Safari is mostly used browser in the world on mobile or smartphones almost 50-60% smartphone users used safari for browsing Internet world from their mobile.
Safari is developed by Apple, inc and it’s available on mac os and ios which is a operating system for ipad. You can download this browser for free from apple website for mac pc.
Online advertising is playing vital role in all aspect using such browsers, Many vendors need to understand their user if they are working with online advertising – because you need to know your user demographics in on-line advertising.
Technically Apple’s safari is configured to block user cookie, and if you block user’s cookie so basically you cannot know who the user is and where he/she is coming from which is very important in on-line advertising.
Recently Google a search giant and giant in online advertising recently identified by different researchers that Google has placed tractable cookie in Safari browser which is against the rule of game.
In future Google may face some legal issues- because this issue has been raised by U.S govt.
We hope this will be resolved soon in the best user interest and we believe NOW Google is a real giant in search advertising.

If you are searching content on web using Google and wanted to do something on cloud like dropbox,icloud is doing where people can start uploading their files or content and they can use them anywhere where they have Internet connection and they can manipulate those files anywhere.

If you ever used SkyDrive and used it and manage your files on Internet so be ready to work with your files on line with search giant Google, a new service is going to be released by Google –we do not have any information what is the charge of Google drive –normally Google provide things free – like if you ever used Google doc so that is totally free. This time Google is coming with cloud technology which will help anyone to upload and store content on cloud called it Google drive so you can manipulate them easily.

But Google drive is coming on smartphones and other devices if you have such mobile so you can use Google cloud technology and it’s our guess -this will be free services from Google.

Little details about other vendors currently offering free space:
Drop box 2 GB free (attempted to acquire by Apple)
SkyDrive 25 gb free space up till now by Microsoft

We will have to see how things will be working with Google drive but probably they will face huge competition in the market.

 Touch screen is the most famous mechanism for operating smartphone, tablet and other devices even pc’s. This mechanism is more popular in games and driving more demand of touch screen in other devices – but if you want to control device through your voice and body gestures then there is another device called Microsoft Kinect.

Basic idea behind this is – you are going to control your computer through your voice- a device can understand your gesture and your voice as you perform in front of the device sensor.

It has feature of face recognition and skeletal tracking in real time as you move along, it can recognize two object(human face) within specified range.

 There are two different flavor to work with the device – one is for game console – and other one is for windows pc's- here you will see more ideas about how you can use it with pc's –means you will buy  Kinect for Windows sensor device if you want to build application for your business.

You can use Kinect for businesses – if you have retail store and want to track how people are interacting with your product and so you can do this by Kinect – and finally you will come up with the idea how many people has visited and seen which product and shown interest in them. You can do programming using Kinect SDK for windows pc's  and then you will be able to do such stuff.

You can design gesture based  or body movement based application and use it in diversified sector including healthcare to interact with the patient .

As you know Kinect for windows  can understand human movement  including skeletal and facial recognition and can understand your voice and recognize it,  so this means you can write application using Kinect SDK  which will understand and interpret your  command and execute them if you want to press button so don’t just press them just say it – because Kinect can understand and recognize your voice.

And then on this SDK could be easily used in your businesses – like we discussed earlier retail, healthcare and in other domain.

What you need in order to develop such application that could understand your command and execute them are following:

  •     Kinect device to detect your body movement and recognition of your voice.

  •     Kinect SDK for windows for developing application that could understand your voice and gesture.

Kinect in Education Sector:
Device is called Kinect released by Microsoft for motion detection for human, another idea of using Kinect SDK is to develop application that could understand your  voice if you are in class start clapping so your lecture will start and computer can display presentation based on your clapping sound and stop presentation if you clap again.

If you really want to capture human action and execute commands against those actions so you need to write a program using Kinect SDK and with Computer, windows  and visual studio and Kinect sensor device – connect it to your pc via USB cable.

How to start working with Microsoft Kinect for Windows:
You need to have Microsoft Kinect SDK and its hardware sensor and that is all.
Near Mode is a term used with Microsoft Kinect that can understand object from 40 centimeter.
Microsoft Kinect device can work with any pc's running Windows 7, this device can start sensing object and can receive and execute commands accordingly. Its SDK license is free for anyone- use its SDK and API for different functionality and you need to purchase Microsoft Kinect device only and then done.
Kinect SDK can be used to track anyone’s body movement and execute commands against those actions.

How to make program using Microsoft Kinect device:
If you are developer and want to use Microsoft Kinect SDK you need a pc with windows or Windows embedded standard 7 and visual studio 2010 and Microsoft Kinect SDK and finally you need to purchase a Kinect device – then probably you will be able to make any type of body tracking or speech recognition application using it.
Possibly you can make a program that can understand your voice to move screen pages and much more using its Microsoft Kinect SDK.

Please comment if you have any other idea of using Microsoft Kinect for windows.

Updated released.

If you want to compare Facebook so you can do it with Google if you want to know competitors so again that is Google. And Google plus is the real threat to Facebook right now, initially Google has made a final move to be top competitor - in which Google has released few more features with its giant Search tool where you can find your friends and shared post with search engine down the line.
