  • Google share price to touch $900: Analysts

    Google’s share price should resume its upward march to about $900 from less than $800 now, analysts said on Friday, after the search giant’s strong quarterly profit reinforced its status as a technology sector favorite.

    At least five analysts increased their 12-month price target on the stock, by between $50 and $130 to $820-$925. Three others, who already had targets above $935, trimmed theirs.

    Some analysts said the predictability of Google’s results over the last several quarters was allowing them to better model earnings and stock price trends.

    The strength of Google’s core search business, which lends stability to its overall results, will also help it fund projects such as Google Glass wearable computers and high-speed fiber networks as the company seeks newer streams of revenue, some analysts said.

    Google shares peaked at $844 in March but have slipped since then because of uncertainty about the company’s mobile advertising business and its Motorola mobile division.

    Still, some analysts have said they expect the stock to hit $1,000 soon.

    Google shares were set to open around $772 on Friday, up less than 1 percent. Google reported stronger-than-expected earnings after the market closed on Thursday.

    “Google can grow its core search business in the low teens over the next few years at high incremental margins,” analysts at Morgan Stanley said. “(It) may therefore be able to invest in newer projects while keeping core operating margins about stable.”

    The decline in Google’s cost-per-click also slowed in the first quarter from the fourth quarter. Cost-per-click, or the rate advertisers pay Google, has been hit by lower advertising rates on cellphones over the past few quarters.

    Google recently changed the way marketers run ad campaigns on its website — a strategy it calls Enhanced Campaigns — blurring the distinction between ads for PCs and mobile devices.

    Some analysts believe this could help boost Google’s overall ad prices.

    “Mixed trends could lead to diverging views on Google coming out of the quarter, but we’d be buying any weakness in Google shares,” JP Morgan analysts said.

    “We remain positive on Google as mobile and display, Enhanced Campaigns, and Google Shopping/Play Store App should drive strong year-over-year growth in the second half of 2013 and into 2014.”

    JP Morgan maintained its price target at $860, with an “overweight” recommendation.

    Macquarie Equities Research raised its price target to $925 from $795, while Oppenheimer, which had the lowest stock price target of the group, raised its target to $820 from $765.

    Citigroup and Needham and Co also forecast that Google shares would breach $900. Piper Jaffray, Evercore Partners and Deutsche Bank, which had targets above $935, trimmed theirs slightly. All these brokerages maintained their “buy” or equivalent ratings.

  • India‘s IT exports resilient despite ‘slowdown‘

    India’s IT exporters have demonstrated resilience by surviving the difficult market conditions of recent times, a senior industry official has said.

    Kamal Vachani, Hon. Regional Director of Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC) for the Middle East, said India’s export of computer software and services during 2012-13 is estimated to have registered a growth of 10.26 per cent over 2011-12.

    “In value terms, export of computer software and services during 2012-13 is estimated to be $75 billion, up from $68 billion estimated in 2011-12″, said Vachani.

    With an objective to give a visible momentum to enhancing IT & ITES exports from the country, ESC has created a unique brand for Indian software and services companies in 2001 – INDIASOFT International IT Exhibition & Conferences, Vachani said in a statement.

    According to him, the main focus of INDIASOFT events has been to enhance the opportunities for Indian software companies in emerging and established IT markets across the world. ESC has organised 12 editions so far.

  • World‘s first smartphone for the blind, made in India

    The world’s first smartphone for blind people is here. Soon, they will be able to read SMSes and emails on this phone, which converts all text into Braille patterns.

    “We have created the world’s first Braille smartphone,” says its innovator, Sumit Dagar, whose company is being incubated at the Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship, located in IIM Ahmedabad campus. “This product is based on an innovative ‘touch screen’ which is capable of elevating and depressing the contents it receives to transform them into ‘touchable’ patterns,” he says.

    Dagar, who is a post-graduate from the National Institute of Design (NID), says he was motivated to develop the device when he realised that so far, technology was only serving the mainstream and ignoring the marginalised. He is collaborating with IIT Delhi on making the prototype, which is currently being tested at L V Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad.

    “The response during the test has been immense. It comes out as a companion more than a phone to the user. We plan to do more advanced versions of the phone in the future,” Dagar adds.

    Dagar started the project three years ago while studying interaction designing at NID. After working with a couple of companies, he gave up his job to concentrate on his technology, formed a team of six people and started his venture, Kriyate Design Solutions. Currently, the venture is being funded by Rolex Awards under its Young Laureates Programme, in which they select five people from across the world every two years and fund their projects.

    How it works

    · The smartphone uses Shape Memory Alloy technology, based on the concept that metals remember their original shapes, i.e. expand and contract to its original shape after use.

    · The phone’s ‘screen’ has a grid of pins, which move up and down as per requirement. The grid has a Braille display, where pins come up to represent a character or letter.

    · This screen will be capable of elevating and depressing the contents to form patterns in Braille.

    · All other elements are like any other smartphone.

  • Accenture Q2 profit beats street expectations

     

    Accenture beat analysts' second-quarter profit estimates on strength in its outsourcing business, but said full-year revenue growth would be below the mid point of its previously forecast range of 5 to 8 percent. 
     
    Outsourcing revenue rose 9 percent to $3.3 billion in the quarter, while consulting revenue fell by about 1 percent to $3.8 billion. 
     
    Accenture's shares fell about 2 percent in premarket trading, after closing at $74.88 on the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday. 
     
    The company's stock has risen 5.5 percent since it reported results in December. During the same period, the S&P 500 IT Services (Industry) index gained 9 percent. 
     
    The company kept unchanged its forecast for earnings of $4.24 to $4.32 per share for the year ending August 31. 
     
    Analysts on average were expecting full-year earnings of $4.26 per share on revenue of $29.3 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Growth of 5 to 8 percent implies revenue of between $31.66 billion and $32.16 billion. 
     
    While an industry-wide rebound in discretionary spending is expected only in the second half of the year, rivals such as Cognizant Technology and Infosys reported growth in consulting revenue for the quarter ended December 31. 
     
    In December, Accenture forecast a second quarter below investor expectations, saying clients continued to defer discretionary spending in Europe. 
     
    Second-quarter net income rose to $1.19 billion, or $1.65 per share, from $714.2 million, or 97 cents per share, a year earlier. 
     
    Excluding one-time items, it earned $1.00 per share. 
     
    Second-quarter revenue rose 4 percent to $7.06 billion. 
     
    Analysts on average had expected earnings of 97 cents per share on revenue of $7.07 billion.

  • Victory for tech industry:

    Washington: In a major victory for the tech industry, US visas for high-skilled foreign workers, including those from India, could double under a bipartisan Senate immigration plan, according to the Washington Post.

    The proposal would also give permanent legal status to an unlimited number of students who earn graduate degrees from US universities in science, technology, engineering or math, the influential US daily reported citing people familiar with the negotiations.

    The number of H1B visas for highly skilled workers would approximately double from the current limit of 65,000 per year under the plan of eight senators working on a deal between the Congress and the White House to overhaul the immigration system, it said.

    Critics suggest that H1B programme has become a way for outsourcing firms to bring lower-paid employees to the US. Most of the top 10 employers of H1B visa holders, for instance, are India-based technology consultancies with large US operations,

    Those firms often train workers in the United States before sending them back home to do the same jobs for considerably less money, according to critics cited by the Post.

    The Post cited these critics as saying that companies commonly use the visa to bring employees from India to work in the US for up to three years, train them and then return them to India to continue the same work, often for a US company buying the services from a contractor.

    But advocates for tech companies welcomed the developments, describing the still-evolving immigration plan as a potential watershed moment.

    "We're encouraged," Scott Corley, executive director of Compete America, a coalition of companies that includes Intel, Google, IBM and other tech giants, was quoted as saying by the Post.

    The foreign-worker piece of the immigration debate has been one of the thorniest for the eight senators, who are trying to reach a full agreement among themselves by Friday, the daily said. Staffers will then take the next two weeks to draft a bill.

    The Post citing familiar with the talks said the senators group has agreed to a citizenship plan that would immediately legalise millions of undocumented immigrants, including about 250,000 Indians, but would require certain expenditures on border security and internal enforcement before allowing people to gain a path to citizenship.

  • IT companies like Infosys, HCL and others promote 'mini-CEOs':

     

    BANGALORE/MUMBAI: India's IT outsourcers are promoting "mini CEOs" capable of running businesses on their own, while trimming down on the hordes of entry-level computer coders they normally hire as they try to squeeze more profits out of their staff.
     
    The shift by Infosys Ltd and others is symptomatic of a maturing industry that wants more revenue from its own intellectual property instead of providing only labour-intensive, lower-margin information technology and back-office services.

  • Google launches Evernote rival Keep

     

    Google has launched a new app that would allow users to sync their notes and to-do lists across their computer, phone and tablet using Google account.

  • Google Glass to be tested by 8,000 people

    Google has chosen 8,000 people, including celebrities and tech opinion formers, who will get the chance to test its much-awaited 'wearable computer' Glass. 


    Those who wanted to become 'Glass Explorers' had a week in February to submit their reasons why they should, in 50 words, via Google or Twitter. 


    They were also asked to pay 1,500 dollars and collect their Glass frames from Los Angeles, San Francisco or New York. 


    The Glass wearable computers display information in a smartphone-like format, are hands-free, can interact with the internet using natural language voice commands and use Google's Android operating system. 


    Among the well-known names who impressed the #ifihadglass judges were actor Neil Patrick Harris, who now plays womanising Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother, and Souljaboy, a US rapper whose dance craze swept the nation, SKY News reports. 


    According to the report, former House of Representatives speaker and Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich said he would take his 'on tours of zoos and museums to share the animals and fossils'. 


    The names of around 4,000 people accepted by Google via Twitter have been collated and posted online by Stanford computer science PhD student Andrej Karpathy. 


    His research showed 26 per cent of people chosen have fewer than 100 followers, 61 per cent fewer than 1,000 and seven percent have more than 10,000 followers.

  • H-1B visas - US receives 50,000 applications on first day

    The US received nearly 50,000 packages of H-1B visa applications on the very first day, which is reflective of the sudden surge in demand of the country's most sought after work visas.



    The USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services), officially has not announced the number of H-1B applications received by it since April 1, when it started accepting petitions for the fiscal 2014 beginning October 1, 2013.

    According to a Computer World report, an estimate by FCi Federal, a Virginia-based government services and technology provider, suggests that USCIS received some 50,000 packages on the first day. FCi Federal is supplying personnel to USCIS to assist in H-1B petitions processing .

    A package can contain one H-1B application as well as multiple visa applications. However, according to the report, the number of packages received fell sharply on the second day.

    According to Congressional approved mandate, USCIS can reward a maximum of 65,000 H-1B visas for the fiscal year 2014 beginning October 1, 2013.

    In addition, the USCIS can also reward 20,000 H-1B visas for those having masters or higher degree from US academic institutions. This limit on H-1B visas has been in place for more than two decades now.

    The USCIS received H-1B petitions at its two centres — the Vermont Service Center and the California Service Center – where its officials described business as usual.

    Last month, USCIS had said based on feedback from a number of stakeholders, it anticipates that it may receive more petitions than the H-1B cap between April 1, 2013 and April 5, 2013.

    As such if USCIS receives more petitions than it can accept, it will use a lottery system to randomly select the number of petitions required to reach the numerical limit, the federal agency said.

    The lottery for the H-1B cap was last used in April 2008, when the cap was filled on the first day itself.

    Last year in 2012, it took 73 days for the USCIS to fill in the cap, while in took 235 days to receive applications to fill the 65,000 H-1B numbers in 2011; 300 days in 2010, and 264 days in 2009. In 2008 and 2007 the caps were reached in the first few days.

  • Apple may unveil 60-inch iTV this year

    It's no secret that Apple  wants to get into the living room by making its own TV set, and there have been plenty of rumors and reports about how and when it's going to happen.



    Now, an analyst says he's learned that the set will go on sale late this year, for $1,500 to $2,500.



    In a research note on Wednesday, Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets says the " iTV" will be 60 inches (150 centimeters) on the diagonal, but could also come in 50- and 55-inch versions. Apple will also release a small "iRing" that fits on the viewer's finger, allowing the user to control the screen by pointing, White says.



    The report is based on gleanings from visits with Chinese and Taiwanese companies that supply Apple with components, White says.

  • Indian companies support 250,000 US jobs: US thinktank

     

    Citing the significant contributions of immigrants from India, a leading US thinktank has suggested that America must roll out the welcome mat to high-skilled workers to remain competitive and innovative. 
     
    While much of the congressional immigration reform debate is focused on a 'path to citizenship' for 11 million illegal immigrants, including some 260,000 Indians, a proposal by Senate's " Gang of Eight" focusing on skilled workers "should attract broad support," it said, describing it as 'path to prosperity'. 
     
    Called the Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, it proposes increasing the number of visas for high-skilled foreign workers and granting permanent legal ('green card') status to more foreign students who earn graduate degrees from American universities in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math). 
     
    "Current US immigration practices prevent US companies and entrepreneurs from gaining access to talented, high skilled employees," noted Karl F. Inderfurth, Wadhwani Chair in US-India Policy Studies and Scott Miller, Scholl Chair in International Business at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). 
     
    "A further incentive for increasing the number of high skill immigrant visas to the United States is the benefit that can come from the bilateral economic links the immigrant community maintains with their country of origin," they wrote. 
     
    Indian Americans, for example, "are one of the fastest growing minorities in the United States, and in addition to coming here for higher education, they increasingly have come to start companies and invest," Inderfurth and Miller said. 
     
    The evidence that Indian immigrants and Indian businesses boost the US economy is clear, they said. 
     
    "Since 2006, Indian nationals have founded 33 per cent of all engineering and technology companies founded by immigrants in the United States, which accounts for about a quarter of all companies launched." 
     
    "Indian companies support more than 250,000 jobs for locals in the United States. In addition, Indian companies have invested more than $4.9 billion and employ more than 27,000 Americans," Inderfurth and Miller said. 
     
    Reactions to the proposal in the US and India have been mixed, the paper noted. 
     
    The North American Association of Indian IT Professionals (NAAIIP) is pleased with new stipulations to increase the number of temporary high-skill visas (H-1B visas) and provide foreign high skill workers with some employment flexibility. 
     
    India's National Association of Software and Services Companies ( Nasscom) is concerned about the likely hike in H-1B visa fees and the potential to apply new rules in a discriminatory manner against companies headquartered in India. 
     
    The US-India Business Council (USIBC) and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), both argue that targeting Indian firms operating in the US with restrictions or fees is contrary to the spirit of the US- India strategic partnership. 
     
    "While this debate continues, one thing that most experts can agree on is that the US is no longer the only preferred destination for high skill workers," Inderfurth and Miller wrote. 
     
    "As part of the global competition for innovation and knowledge, other nations are keen to absorb the talent that the US turns away," they noted suggesting, "In order to remain competitive and innovative, we must roll out the welcome mat."

A 5MP autofocus camera is placed on the back of this tablet, whereas a 1.3MP unit is used on the front panel. According to the company, the 4,600mAh battery of this tablet offers talk time of nine hours.

    This tablet takes on the likes of Apple iPad mini and Google Nexus 7 in the Indian market.

    “Galaxy Note 510 breathes fresh life into the category as it delivers the perfect fusion of portability and everyday productivity resulting in a pioneering, pocket-sized solution that enhances and enriches our everyday lives,” Samsung Electronics president and CEO (South West Asia) BD Park said.

    Samsung has also launched an offer with the tablet, in which it assures the owner who sends an SMS to the firm gets 12,000 coins in the virtual wallet. These coins get activated as soon as one downloads the myServices application and can be redeemed by streaming premium movie, downloading bollywood songs, playing game and come with a validity period of 3 months from the date of purchase.

Inderfurth, Wadhwani Chair in US-India Policy Studies and Scott Miller, Scholl Chair in International Business at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

    “A further incentive for increasing the number of high skill immigrant visas to the United States is the benefit that can come from the bilateral economic links the immigrant community maintains with their country of origin,” they wrote.

    Indian Americans, for example, “are one of the fastest growing minorities in the United States, and in addition to coming here for higher education, they increasingly have come to start companies and invest,” Inderfurth and Miller said.

    The evidence that Indian immigrants and Indian businesses boost the US economy is clear, they said.

    “Since 2006, Indian nationals have founded 33 per cent of all engineering and technology companies founded by immigrants in the United States, which accounts for about a quarter of all companies launched.”

    “Indian companies support more than 250,000 jobs for locals in the United States. In addition, Indian companies have invested more than $4.9 billion and employ more than 27,000 Americans,” Inderfurth and Miller said.

    Reactions to the proposal in the US and India have been mixed, the paper noted.

    The North American Association of Indian IT Professionals (NAAIIP) is pleased with new stipulations to increase the number of temporary high-skill visas (H-1B visas) and provide foreign high skill workers with some employment flexibility.

    India’s National Association of Software and Services Companies ( Nasscom) is concerned about the likely hike in H-1B visa fees and the potential to apply new rules in a discriminatory manner against companies headquartered in India.

    The US-India Business Council (USIBC) and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), both argue that targeting Indian firms operating in the US with restrictions or fees is contrary to the spirit of the US- India strategic partnership.

    “While this debate continues, one thing that most experts can agree on is that the US is no longer the only preferred destination for high skill workers,” Inderfurth and Miller wrote.

    “As part of the global competition for innovation and knowledge, other nations are keen to absorb the talent that the US turns away,” they noted suggesting, “In order to remain competitive and innovative, we must roll out the welcome mat.”

  • Microsoft goes cheap to win smartphone market

    Microsoft’s phone chief hates to call the new Nokia Lumia 521 cheap, but the lower-priced smartphone launching in the United States is the company’s boldest move yet to win mass market share from leaders Apple and Samsung.

    The world’s largest software company has so far focused on putting its Windows Phone software into expensive, high-end devices – chiefly from Nokia and HTC.

    But the new model will go on sale at Walmart later this month at an unsubsidised price under $150, relatively cheap for a new phone running up-to-date software without a long-term contract.

    “There is an opportunity for us to offer a very high quality device in the mainstream,” said Terry Myerson, head of the Windows Phone unit, at Microsoft’s campus near Seattle last week. “That’s where we’ve made progress in the last couple of months and it’s a strategy we’ll continue to explore in the United States.”

    The Nokia Lumia 521 went on sale on the Home Shopping Network (HSN) last week, where it has already sold out. The 4G phone, sold overseas as the Nokia 520, is essentially a mid-range phone with some high-end features, such as 4-inch touch screen, five megapixel camera and high-definition video display.

    Next week the phone will go on sale at less than $150 at Walmart, along with T-Mobile US’ $30 per month unlimited data and text plan, which works out much cheaper over the long run than heavily subsidised iPhones and upscale Android devices that generally come with pricy long-term contracts.

    The early popularity of the Lumia 521 on HSN is a minor boost for Microsoft, whose mobile plans have stuttered and stumbled since Apple’s iPhone destroyed its early dominance in the smartphone market in 2007.

    After completely redesigning its software, Microsoft-powered phones now have 3.2% of the US smartphone market, compared to 39% for Apple and 52% for Google’s Android system, according to comScore.

    Nokia, which now only makes smartphones running Windows, sold 5.6 million of its Lumia handsets in the first quarter, up 27% from the previous quarter, although that is still dwarfed by 37 million iPhone sales.

    Microsoft does not detail overall Windows phone sales or financials, but did say last quarter that phone-related revenue rose by $259 million, which includes licensing revenue from Android phones, which use some technology patented by Microsoft.

    Windows phones tend to fare better overseas, where they have as much as 20% share in some markets such as Mexico and Poland, and almost 7 percent in Britain, according to Microsoft.

    That is partly because the role of powerful carriers such as AT&T and Verizon Wireless, which dominate US phone retail, is less pronounced in overseas markets.

    “AT&T and Verizon have been great partners,” said Myerson. “But where the market dynamics are different, and where the operators play a different role, we have done better.”

    Heavy up-front subsidies from AT&T and Verizon, in return for long-term service contracts, mean US customers can afford the best hardware from Apple and Samsung. Even though Windows phones are also subsidised, Myerson admits it has been hard to break that lock on the home market.

    “It (subsidisation) is a compelling business model for them. If you are Samsung, Apple, AT&T or Verizon, it’s where everything’s working, you are growing share, you are growing profits,” said Myerson. “If you are an incumbent with a successful business model, you’re not going to be jumping to throw it out.”

    As a challenger to those incumbents, Myerson says Microsoft has to differentiate on more than just price.

    After introducing “killer hardware,” he says the next task for Windows phones is to leverage Microsoft’s Office and Xbox products to make a genuinely new phone experience, whether as a work tool or advanced toy.

    “I don’t think we’ve come near to the full potential,” he said. “Those are our two dimensions here, Office and Xbox. We want to bring to life getting work done and bring to life that serious fun, here on this thing in your pocket. That’s going to develop over time.”

    Myerson played down reports that Microsoft was working on a phone of its own, to follow up on its Surface tablet.

    “Nokia’s doing a great job,” he said. “They really are receiving all of our go-to-market energy right now.”

  • Indian student wins $60,000 at Dell Social Innovation Challenge

    A team of students from India became the winner of the 60,000-dollar-grand-prize at the Dell Social Innovation Challenge (DSIC 2013) for its project Solar Conduction Dryer.

    The winning team comprised of two Indian students, Shital Somani and Vaibhav Tidke from Mumbai.

    Shortlisted from more than 2,600 projects ideas that addressed issues impacting more than 110 countries, five finalists convened in Austin this week to compete for the cash prize as part of the DSIC.

    Their project aims at addressing the 20 to 30 per cent food spoilage rate for poor rural Indian farmers via cost-effective dehydrators powered by solar conduction.

    The innovation will enable farmers to keep more of their crops and sell dehydrated fruits and vegetables as another income source.
