Reliance Jio Preview Offer now open for Asus and Panasonic smartphone users too

Despite being called out by the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) for running commercial services under the garb of testing, Reliance Jio has opened its 90-day free "Preview Offer" for more smartphone brands. Users of select Asus and Panasonic smartphones are now also eligible to get a Jio connection. This adds to the existing list of smartphones from LYF, Samsung and LG. Last week some users reported that Jio had opened the offer to any 4G smartphone user but the carrier hasn't publicly announced it, which would lend more credibility to COAI's claims. The Preview Offer in essence offers users with unlimited access to internet data, calls, and messaging, as well as, Jio's suite of apps including JioJoin, JioBeats, JioOnDemand and JioPlay among others.

Instagram pictures can help in detecting depression: Study

People who post grayer or darker colored pictures on Instagram are more likely to be depressed compared to those who upload images with vibrant hues, scientists say. Researchers from Harvard University and University of Vermont in the US have developed a new algorithm that checks photos on Instagram to diagnose depression and other mental illnesses at an early stage. According to the researchers, there is a connection between the usage of color and the mental state of a person. They believe that those who post grayer or darker colored images on Instagram are more likely to be depressed compared to those who upload pictures of vibrant colors. The algorithm spots depression in people by identifying the pictures they have uploaded. More →

New smart material may soon cut down your electricity bills

You may soon save on cooling and heating bills for homes thanks to the invention of a new flexible smart material that, when incorporated into windows, sunroofs, or even curved glass surfaces, will have the ability to control both heat and light from the sun. Researchers reported a new low-temperature process for coating the smart material on plastic, which makes it easier and cheaper to apply than conventional coatings made directly on the glass itself. The low-temperature process developed by Delia Milliron from The University of Texas at Austin and her colleagues generates a material with a unique nanostructure, which doubles the efficiency of the coloration process compared with a coating produced by a conventional high-temperature process. It can switch between clear and tinted more quickly, using less power, researchers reported in a study published online in the journal Nature Materials. More →
