Samsung Galaxy S4- the most innovative phone

With all those features, I am sure this is gonna be an iPhone Killer and speculate new innovations and censor controls in new smartphones to come.

Top Ten unbelievable incidents in Narayan Gopal's Life.

Swor Samrat Narayan Gopal's name needs no introduction to all the Nepali out there. A legend in the Modern Music's first generation (Adhunik Geet yug) was borned today, (Oct 4) in the year 1939. Marking his birth anniversary, I am here to post top ten unknown incidents in his life (taken from film maker/writer Prakash Sayami).

Kabaddi Kabaddi first look and teaser out.

August 31, 2015: It was in news that the sequel to the well appraised movie of the year 2071, Kabaddi was under production six months before. Now it seems that they are near to the completion as the first teaser (both video and first look) are out today. The movie sequel, named Kabaddi Kabaddi, includes almost all of the actors/characters (including Dayahang Rai, Rishma Gurung, Buddhi Tamang, Bijay Baral) while Nischal Basnet seems to be there behind the scene only and Saugat Malla is the new hindrance for Kaji to get Soltini.
Apart from the funny dialogues and lively sequences, the movie is expected to have some politics play in it with not so dumb Kaji, unlike in the first part. Maya- the Soltini is still not convinced for the love that Kaji has offered but he has not given up to follow his dreams and so here is the first powerful dialogue from the movie. "Money attracts money, Love attracts love, tyo man le yo mon ko kura ekdin kaso nabujhla". 

The movie directed by Ram Babu Gurung is known to release this winter with the trailer meetup on Ashoj 4. Music of the movie is done by Kali Prasad Baskota (the maker of Jaalma from Resham filili). More details and preview when the trailer gets released. 

Here is the first teaser of the movie Kabaddi Kabaddi in Youtube.

Kantipur relaunches its digital platform with ekantipur brand.

August 19, 2015: Kantipur Media Group, the leading media giant in Nepal has revamped its digital platform from Yesterday night. With the redesign, they have used "ekantipur" as a new name for all of its digital medias, before they used to have separate names like ekantipur, Kantipur or KMG. The proliferation of online portals in Nepal has bound them revitalized one of the oldest online news portal in Nepal and the not so old "KMG" app has also been upgraded to ekantipur app. The online portal now shows news and articles from entire network of Kantipur Media group and includes all the specific sites within sub domains like, etc. It also includes the recommended news, epapers of all the publications, trending news from social medias. The user experience of ekantipur app is somewhat faster than that of KMG which also includes the digital medias from all of its wings like News, articles, trending and recommendations. There are actually 7 wings in Kantipur including the daily, weekly publications, radio and televisions.

  • Kantipur
  • Kathmandu post
  • Saptahik
  • Nepal
  • Nari
  • Radio Kantipur (Kantipur FM 96.1 MHz, 101.8 MHz)
  • Kantipur Television (KTV and Kantipur Gold)
They have also launched ekantipur SMS platform that provides you breaking news from KMG after subscribing the service. To subscribe the Nepali and English SMS, you can type SUB<space>ENG and send it to 33333 for English sms or type SUB<space>NEP and send it to 33333 for Nepali SMS.
To unsubscribe the service, type unsub and send it to 33333. Till now the SMS service is only available with NTC network.

LTE and WiFi to co-exist.

August 12 2015: Wireless hunger for high speed services has surged rapidly due to the increase in multimedia content esp. video on the go and use of devices (other than mobile) that demand internet connectivity. True 4G cells even seems to be inadequate for the hotspot area in future. Small cells and Wifi offloading are some of the ways to cater the increasing indoor mobile data in those hotspot areas. Due to the limitation in speed of Wifi and finite spectrum in the cells in those areas, throughput is always limited to an extent. The discussion for the assignment of unlicensed spectrum to the later version of LTE is fierce and currently the talk of the hour in the wireless industry and research, which is termed as LTE-U (Unlicensed) or LAA LTE (License Assisted Access). It is also a part of the 3GPP Rel. 13 (under standard setting process) that is expected in 2016.

As large amount of bandwidth is available in 5 GHz ISM band, 3GPP and several other wireless stakeholders believes that LTE in unlicensed spectrum can meet the future data demands whereas there are some opponents (including WiFi alliance, Comcast, NCTA) who have serious reservation over the co-existence of LAA and WiFi in the same 5 GHz spectrum due to the interference. Listen Before Talk (LBT) mechanism or Clean channel selection algorithm has been devised to assign clean channels to LTE (due to other nearby LTE-U node and WiFi) but the opponents argue of not clearing out proper details about the sharing approaches and the collaboration with IEEE would have been more effective for proper standardization (Globally). 

Implementation scenario could be like the LA carrier aggregation of the Primary cell, established using licensed spectrum and co-located secondary cell using Unlicensed spectrum, with two options available for secondary cells: data either in downlink or both uplink and downlink.

Some even term LAA LTE as 4.5G LTE, which is the road to 5G (see my old blog on this) for the enormous data demands not only from the mobiles but also from the censors, wearable and much more things which need internet to be connected (IoT). It is known that FCC will opt for technology neutral approach for those unlicensed band to make efficient use of valuable frequency spectrum for increasing consumer demand. As different countries/region have separate regulatory requirement for ISM band, more work need to spare for the formulation of unified, global Standard and proper coordination also be sought to answer the genuine concern raised by WiFi community. After some field trials, LAA is also going to be being applied commercially right away for selected regions in previous LTE versions with the software upgrade and the compatible radio units.
