Do you think that your nude selfies are safe...?
SmilingSelfie
          Dear friends, do you think that your nude selfies are safe in your Android smartphone? The new research says that this notion is absolutely wrong. AVAST researchers conducted a study in this field by getting twenty second-hand smart phones from an online retailer ebay. They recovered thousands of personal photos, emails, text messages, and – in some cases – the identities of the users. The AVAST study indicates that the ‘factory reset' option is only able to delete the directory that points to the location of the data rather than the data itself.

          AVAST used  advanced data retrieval techniques to retrieve data from the handsets. They were able to find out forty thousand deletes photos. Among these photos nearly two hundred and fifty were naked snaps and selfies of their (users) private moments. Besides, these researchers have succeeded in identifying the users of four of the twenty smartphones.

          But Google defends this research result by arguing that these types of data recovering is not possible in almost 80% of Android smartphones.

          If the study is true, we, the users will be the victims. So, dear friends keep this news in mind while taking selfies.

Mobile Phone charging via Water Droplets
          Friends, imagine a world where you can charge your mobile phones and other electronic devices via water droplets. Yes, scientists assure that for this you don't need to wait for a long. The scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) argue that they have invented a technology of charging mobile phones using the humidity in the air. 

          The technology is based on a superhydrophobic surface which contains material that repels water. The jumping water droplets on the hydrophobic surface can generate a small amount of electricity for an electronic device via condensation. Initially, the researchers have used copper plates for the technology. 

          MIT researchers Nenad Miljkovic and Evelyn Wang are of the opinion that the jumping water droplets carry charge from one plate to another and if the two plates are connected through an external circuit that charge difference can be harnessed to provide power. It is reported that for fully charging a mobile charger, it would take at least twelve hours.  

        It is said that the prototype of this device will make its appearance on the coming year. The researchers expect that they can launch the device in the mobile market by the onset of 2017.
