  1. 1. RoundI
  2. 2. Why was this company in news ??
  3. 3. What is so much special about theSony’s latest phone Xperia Sola??
  4. 4. What was developed so as totackle the following problem ??Early CRT monitors had problems with the same image being displayed for a long time. The phosphors used to make the pixels in the display would discolor the glass surface of the CRT when they would glow at a constant rate for a long period of time. This discoloration would then be visible as a faint image overlaying whatever else was displayed on the monitor.
  5. 5.  What was the most significant change in the Google logo till date ??
  6. 6. Identify the person !! This man was working at HP, when he founded the company that made him famous. He also established a company named Wheels of Zeus, which manufactures devices that uses GPS and smart tags track down
  7. 7. Give the name of the object shown in the image?? The image is of X that was awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation for 2008 by US President Barack Obama. It can reach operating speeds of pentaFlops.
  8. 8. This logo is found on devicescertified for what ??
  9. 9.  Tesco, the British multinational grocery and general merchandise retailer revolutionized the supermarket experience for their customers in South Korea in June 2011. How??
  10. 10. Round II
  11. 11. Id X and Y X called Y as the only preposition available on the keyboard. X in 1967 he joined the technology company BBN Technologies and developed a revolutionary communication system. At first, his system wasnt thought to be a big deal. When X showed it to his colleague Jerry Burchfiel, he said "Dont tell anyone! This isnt what were supposed to be working on.“ Y was initially used in business transactions. Y was popularized by X’s invention.
  12. 12. Id both X and Y X engineer, author, and a science pioneer in the semiconductor industry, also known as "guy who drove the growth phase of Silicon Valley". X on becoming CEO of the biggest semiconductor company (Y) of today, transformed it into the giant as we know it today. X and his two mates left Fairchild Semiconductors in 1968. X is idolized by Steve Jobs who asked for his advice when he was planning to return to Apple.
  13. 13. This is the mail sent by X to Y to establish anIndia no big school of research in the fundamental There is at the moment in institution Z? problems of physics, both theoretical and experimental. There are, however, scattered all over India competent workers who are not doing as good work as they would do if brought together in one place under proper direction. It is absolutely in the interest of India to have a vigorous school of research in fundamental physics, for such a school forms the spearhead of research not only in less advanced branches of physics but also in problems of immediate practical application in industry. If much of the applied research done in India today is disappointing or of very inferior quality it is entirely due to the absence of sufficient number of outstanding pure research workers who would set the standard of good research and act on the directing boards in an advisory capacity ... Moreover, when nuclear energy has been successfully applied for power production in say a couple of decades from now, India will not have to look abroad for its experts but will find them ready at hand. I do not think that anyone acquainted with scientific development in other countries would deny the need in India for such a school as I propose.The subjects on which research and advanced teaching would be done would be theoretical physics, especially on fundamental problems and with special reference to cosmic rays and nuclear physics, and experimental research on cosmic rays. It is neither possible nor desirable to separate nuclear physics from cosmic rays since the two are closely connected
  14. 14. Id X X was developed in 1983 by Richard Stallman and was the original focus of FSF. X is a recursive acronym. X name was inspired by a song by Flanders and Swann. This is X’s logo, based on its name.

  16. 16. Id X or Y X is a very popular war dialing program in the mid 90s, a war dialing program is a program that searches for open modems/telephone exchange lines by dialing every phone no. in range. X’s name resembles a popular grammy winning rap artist of that time. Y or Minor Threat (alias) was sentenced to 70 months of jail and was probably the first person to be banned from the net till 2003.
  17. 17. ID X X was established on 24 June 1998 as a partnership between Ericsson, Nokia, Motorola, and Psion to exploit the convergence between PDAs and mobile phones. X was then bought completely by Nokia on 24 June 2008.
