With a focus on non- fiction programming like history, mythology, travel and insights from Indian heritage and culture, Saral Jeevan has made a mark for itself in the Kannada TV space.

MAHAAN SADHAKARU (Great Achievers): They are true heroes. They came from nothing, have gone through the toughest times as part of their life journey, and achieved the greatest success. This program highlights the hardships and the journey of these rare achievers. The show will premier today and will come on air every Monday to Saturday at 8.30 pm.

ADBUTHA BHARATHA (Ancient Wonders of India): The program details some of the most iconic identities of India. The beginning, history, importance, the unique architecture, and the science behind these identities are presented. This unique concept will air every Monday to Saturday at 9.00 pm.

  Time Warner to be renamed Warner Media, Turner CEO exits
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday, 07:01 PM - Forum: Television News - No Replies

MUMBAI: AT&T announced on Friday, its first full day of owning Time Warner, that the operating businesses in the $85 billion acquisition will be contained in an entity called WarnerMedia. The names of the operating units — HBO, CNN, Warner Bros., TNT, etc. — will stay the same.

AT&T’s media business CEO John Stankey who is tasked with running WarnerMedia after integrating it into AT&T, also announced the exit of Turner CEO John Martin.

Those who reported to Martin — Turner President David Levy, Turner International President Gerhard Zeiler and CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker — report now to Stankey.

“This initial Turner org structure will allow me to work more closely with more Turner leaders and accelerate my personal learning of the business,” Stankey wrote in a memo to his “new colleagues.”

The heads of WarnerMedia’s two other divisions — HBO CEO Richard Plepler and Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara will stay in their jobs.

Among Time Warner’s top executives, however, Stankey said only general counsel Paul Cappuccio will join the new regime.

That means former Time Warner chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes, whom Stankey profusely thanked for his support throughout the deal’s 21-month approval process, will retire after a brief transition.

WarnerMedia, to meet its goal of $1.5 billion in cost savings, is expected to announce further job cuts.

Stankey promised daily operations would see “little change,” but he didn’t mince words about further paring of the old Time Warner.

He further added, “Many of the redundant corporate support functions between our companies at the HQ/holding company level will be eliminated in the coming months,”

Getting back to the name change, Stankey cited lingering confusion between Time Warner the media company and, until its takeover by Charter Communications, Time Warner the cable company. “Our consumer research suggests this confusion isn’t going away,” he said.

  LG X5 with MediaTek 6750, 4,500mAh battery and Android Oreo launched
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday, 06:43 PM - Forum: Mobiles and General Telecom News - No Replies

[Image: lgx5.jpg&w=735&h=425&q=100]

LG has quietly launched the LG X5 (2018) as its newest entry-level device in South Korea, as the successor to the LG X5 which was launched in 2016. The device features a 5.5-inch HD screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and huge bezels on the front. The LG X5 is currently available only in South Korea in a Moroccan Blue variant that’s price at KRW 3,63,000 (approx. Rs 22,800).

Powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT 6750 chipset which is clocked in at 1.5GHz, the X5 comes with 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The mere 2GB memory is a questionable topic since most budget smartphones are now equipped with 4GB of RAM. The device runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with the company’s own LG Pay mobile payments solution which is possible due to the inbuilt NFC chip.

In terms of imaging, the LG X5 offers a 13MP camera as its primary sensor which misplaced above the fingerprint scanner at the back along with a 5MP lens on the front for selfies. There’s a massive 4,500mAh battery that will able to last a minimum of 2 days on a single charge.

For connectivity, the device offers 4G VoLTE with Bluetooth v4.2, WiFi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual-band) and support for LTE UE CAT 4 for higher download speeds. Unlike the traditional design, the successor to the X5 (2016) comes with a volume rocker on the left with a power button on the right side with an LG branding at the bottom bezel.

LG has already listed the Moroccan Blue-coloured LG X5 (2018) for sale in South Korea which will be available for an asking price of KRW 3,63,000 (approx. Rs 22,800).

Instagram is planning on adding 'Usage insights' in its app as tech industry focuses on digital health

It seems like most of the technology companies are pushing towards digital health or well being in their own ways. The primary way they think they can help the users are by informing them about how much time the user spends on any particular app, service or even a device. Google was the first to introduce this new initiative at Google I/O 2018 a couple of weeks back and later Apple showcased something similar at WWDC 2018. It looks like Instagram is the latest service that is planning to move towards time management control informing its users about how much time they have spent on the app.

According to a report by TechCrunch, the internal code of the Instagram app for Android revealed that the company is working on introducing a new section in the app with the name “Usage Insights” where users can check the amount of time they sent on their app. It is unclear about how the division of the time will work in the app or how comprehensive the breakdown will be. One thing that the report noted is that it is unlikely if Instagram will actually reveal all the time that a user has spent on the platform.

This is not the only change or new feature that Instagram is working on right now. According to the report, the company is also working on “a new commenting interface” where users will see a row of quick-add emojis and the ‘@’ button for tagging friends quickly.

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom took to Twitter to confirm the company’s plans about introducing “Usage Insights” feature. He simply added “It’s true.” while retweeting the original report. In the second tweet, he went on to add that the company is working on “building tools that will help apthe IG community” to be more aware of how much time they spend on Instagram.

  BSNL plans on rolling 4G services in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh by end of year
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday, 02:22 PM - Forum: Cellular Services - No Replies

BSNL plans on rolling 4G services in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh by end of year with exception of Hyderabad

It’s been known for a while that BSNL has been planning on rolling out 4G services in various parts of the country. Now the company reported recently that it will launching its 4G services in certain districts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh in August, with plans to expand it to remaining districts by the end of the year.

The Economic Times quoted BSNL Telangana Telecom Circle Chief General Manager V Sundar saying, “4G services will be launched before August this year in a few districts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on a pilot basis and expanded to all districts in both states by December 2018.”

However, the company also stated that the rollout of 4G services will be delayed in Hyderabad and Secunderabad till March 2019. The delay is happening because the company needs to install 409 4G towers in both cities. Sundar also stated that over 500 4G towers will be installed in Andhra Pradesh alone. BSNL will soon start testing its 4G services in districts of Wyra (Khammam) and Jadcherla (Mahabubnagar).

Besides 4G, BSNL is also planning on expanding the reach of its existing 2G and 3G services. According to Telcomtalk, the company will be installing 186 new towers, adding to its existing tally of 1,100 towers. About 64 2G and 3G towers are also being built alongside the Hyderabad Metro Rail, in order to provide seamless net connectivity to customers, while traveling.

BSNL plans on investing about 123 crore in order to expand its 2G and 3G services. Taking into account only the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle, the company’s revenue has dipped by 15 percent last year, bringing it down to Rs 2,115 crore. However, by launching 4G services and interesting plans, the the company seems optimistic enough to increase its revenue by 5 percent in the current fiscal year.
