Cashless payments overtook the use of notes and coins for the first time in 2015.

It is estimated 48% of payments made by consumers, businesses and financial firms were in cash in 2015 which will drop to 34% by 2024.

India is the largest producer and consumer of currency notes, next only to China. Currency continues to be the dominant means of payment with the banknotes in circulation (in value terms) placed at 14.9 trillion as of end April 2016.

Though in a country like India usage of cashless mechanisms can ensure that loopholes in public systems get plugged, and the proposed beneficiaries get to avail what is rightfully theirs.

Cash is Universal

May there be no subtitute for cash, elctronic payments offers an easy payment options for e and m-commerce. Electronic payment lacks the universality of cash. Cash can be used by all, regardless of age, gender or financial situation. And because the same notes and coins are used by all, cash does not discriminate against users. Cash also works everywhere and expects no technological breakdowns or failures.

The last and perhaps the most compelling reason is that cash connects people. In 2002, a group of OECD economists wrote in a forward-leaning paper called “The Future of Money,” that a proliferation of new payment methods could actually harm social dynamism by “further fragmenting certain communities and regions.”  explained that the portrait of Mahatma Gandhi gracing the Indian banknotes is a powerful symbol and example of the social cohesion role of cash.

Interoperability Between Services and Countries 

Interoperability is an important but insufficient term.

Cash is stable and popular because it can be used for huge range of transaction. They can be used for both high and low value payments across different networks such as face-to-face, consumer-to-business, person-to-person etc.… It is a general-purpose instrument.

But electronic payment instruments are increasingly specialized: dedicated to a specific channel, or a specific spending category. Cash will not be replaced by a single payment instrument.

Kenneth Rogoff (from the intro to his paper The Costs and Benefits to Phasing Out Paper Currency):

"Despite advances in transactions technologies, paper currency still constitutes a notable percentage of the money supply in most countries… Yet, it has important drawbacks. First, it can help facilitate activity in the underground (tax-evading) and illegal economy. Second, its existence creates the artifact of the zero bound on the nominal interest rate."

Going cashless Over cash

Direct Benefits

  • Low maintenance cost

Indirect Benefits

  • Financial inclusion
  • Financial Records
  • Lower transaction costs

Every programmer knows C and some point in career has worked in C. C was the most popular programming language tin 2012. Yet, C can be little dodgy and behave unexpectedly sometimes. One of these tricky side of C is integer promotion.

See this example:

#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
    unsigned char a = 0xff;
    char b = 0xff;
    int c = a==b; // true, or false?
    printf("C: %d\n",c);

You might think the output is 1 but its 0.

Some data types like char , short int take less number of bytes than int, these data types are automatically promoted to int or unsigned int when an operation is performed on them. This is called integer promotion.

Lets recall the range of integer types:

  • signed char: -127 to 127
  • unsigned char: 0 to 255
  • signed short: -32767 to 32767
  • unsigned short: 0 to 65535
  • signed int: -2147483647 to 2147483647 

We can see that signed and unsigned char, short all can be represented in signed int, so they are all converted to signed int when doing arithmetic operations.

This is why the result of expression a==b is 0.

  • If both operands have the same type, then no further conversion is needed.

  • Otherwise, if both operands have signed integer types or both have unsigned integer types, the operand with the type of lesser integer conversion rank is converted to the type of the operand with greater rank.

  • Otherwise, if the operand that has unsigned integer type has rank greater or equal to the rank of the type of the other operand, then the operand with signed integer type is converted to the type of the operand with unsigned integer type.

  • Otherwise, if the type of the operand with signed integer type can represent all of the values of the type of the operand with unsigned integer type, then the operand with unsigned integer type is converted to the type of the operand with signed integer type
  • Otherwise, both operands are converted to the unsigned integer type corresponding to the type of the operand with signed integer type.

Hybrid Mobile Applications resemble whatever other applications you'll discover on your phone. They can be installed on your device. You can discover them in app stores. With them, you can play games, draw in your companions through online networking, take photos, track your health, and much more.

Websites on Internet are based on web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and these three elements are used to build the hybrid mobile apps. The main difference is that these sort of hybrid application are hosted inside a native application that utilizes a mobile platform's WebView allowing users to access device capabilities such as the accelerometer, camera, contacts, and more. Beside these, Hybrid mobile application can also have their own  UI elements in situations where necessary.

It is very difficult to point out how a mobile application is developed. Hybrid mobile application are also the same. If the code is written well, they are no different than native applications. From the prospective of user, No one cares. All what user needs is a properly running program. Trying to figure out if a mobile application is hybrid or native is like trying to differentiate rare grape varieties of wine. Unless you’re a sommelier or someone who really cares about it, it’s not terribly important. What matters is that the wine tastes good.

as long as the mobile application are useful from user prospective, users dont care either they are native or hybrid.

How are hybrid mobile apps built?

Hybrid apps ar developed like website using combination of technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. But they use a WebView hosted inside a container instead of  mobile browser enabling to access the hardware capabilities of mobile.

most hybrid mobile applications leverage Apache Cordova, a platform that provides a consistent set of JavaScript APIs to access device capabilities through plug-ins, which are built with native code. As a side note, Apache Cordova originally started as a project named PhoneGap. These days, PhoneGap exists as a distribution of Apache Cordova that includes additional tools.

Assests like HTML, CSS, JS are packaged by tooling made available through Apache Cordova to target platform SDKs. Once build, they run as smooth as other applications in the device. Tools from Apache Cordova is command line interface. While you can increase productivity by using IDEs like Visual Studio and solutions like the Telerik Platform.

When should you build a hybrid mobile app?

Before you choose the platform you should understand the technical and non-technical merits of hybrid versus alternatives like web and native – especially as it relates to your mobile application’s requirements. For example:

Which mobile platforms do you wish to target?
Do you want to distribute your application via app stores?
Are you looking to utilize the capabilities of the mobile device?
What are the technical abilities of your development team?
Does the one-size-fit-all approach of hybrid really live up to its promise?

Which mobile platforms do you wish to target ?

If you have more than one target platform, you can have lots of choices. We has lots of solution for this. Having mobile browser as target -  Hybrid lends itself well to this approach as well because of its reliance upon the WebView.

While the native is in unique place. In the case of iOS, it’s Objective-C or Swift; for Android, it’s Java; and for Windows Phone, it’s C#. It should be noted that native deliverables can built using cross-platform technologies like Xamarin, React Native, and NativeScript.

Who is building hybrid apps?

The popular Hybrid mobile application includes  Basecamp, Instagram, Yelp, Untappd, and SydJS. More application can be found on the showcases for PhoneGap, Ionic, Telerik Platform, and AppGyver.

Wearables are growing and they are the transition of technology. Technologies will be soon inside our body. That is the future of wearables, the next big frontier, implantable wearables. The wearables are getting smaller and smaller and technologies getting bigger. 

Wearables and Future

Here we present the 7 wearables that are moving inside the body and what the human future look like.

 1: Implantable Smart phones 

Without a doubt, we're practically associated with our cell phones every minute of every day now, however, imagine a scenario where we were physically associated with our mobiles. That is as of now occurrence. A year ago for example, artist Anthony Antonellis had a RFID chip installed in his arm that could store and exchange art to his handheld cell phone. Scientists are exploring different avenues regarding implanted sensors that transform human bones into living speakers. Different researchers are taking a shot at eye embeds that give a picture a chance to be caught in a blink and transmitted to any local storage, (for example, that arm-borne RFID chip). Be that as it may, what assumes the position of the screen if the smartphone is inside you? 

2: Wearable Contact Lens 

 Back in 2014, Google X tested a way to measure glucose levels in tears using a wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensors embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material with an intention with per second report through the LEDs that produce lights to show the level of glucose is either above or below the threshold. Start up Innovega has been working long on an expanded reality contact lens model that pass data over smartphone over the range of vision. When the adjusted eyeglasses are put on, the lenses permit users to concentrate on a high tech vision. The contacts already have financial settlements with sponsorship and the company is sitting tight for FDA endorsement to take their item in the market.


 3: Cyber pills that talk to your doctor

 Not just smartphone, wearables soon will be talking with your doctor too. British researchers team, Proteus are developing cyber-pills with microprocessors in them that can text doctors directly from inside your body. The pill will share the body information with doctors to let them know if you are taking your medication properly and study the desired effect.

4: Implants to Replace Security Devices 

 A Swedish tech company Sime in 2014, the workers in the company had the chance to try out a RFID chip of rice grain size embedded into their hands, encoded wth data to empower them to open gates and utilizations office printers with a swipe. This can be very useful for replacing the current security system but the device upgrade still faces the challenges. And its scope ? Cashless transactions? Forgoing the need for a signature? Trade ? And what else could it be up to ? 

 5: Smart Digital Tattoos 

Scientists at the University of Illinois have made an implantable skin mesh of fibers more slender than a human hair that can send report of your body's internal workings from the surface. Dangerous Things is a company that has a NFC chip that can be implanted in a finger through a tattoo-like procedure, giving you a chance to open things or enter codes just by pointing. A Texas research junkies has created micro particles that can be infused simply under the skin, similar to tattoo ink, and can track body forms. These can be much wiser than name of a upcoming ex.

 6: Meltable bio batteries

 Power has always been challenge for technology. But the major challenge for implanted technologies are the way they power to work. Of course, you cant plug them to power source nor replace them easily. A team of scientists at Draper Laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is working on biodegradable batteries. The batteries will be capable of generating power inside body and send the power to wirelessly where it is needed. 

 7: Heart Devices Wireless Simulation Endocardially(WiSE) is world's first wireless pacemaker accepted in both US and EU. With the electrode implanted in left ventricals, it receives a synchronized ultrasound signal from a small transmitter placed between two ribs in each heartbeat. The sound waves are converted to electrical energy and provides cardiac spacing. Artificial hearts has already been planted in to humans. The first implanted person lived two-and-half months after the successful operation but died of heart malfunction at the age of 76. Heart transplant with a technology piece can be risky practice.

Over the last decade 3D printing evolved as a technology that is accessible even in the home office, earlier it was only accessible to the big manufacturer. With the increase in product creativity and affordability, the ethics of 3D printing are becoming increasingly relevant. Here we present the 10 forms of 3D printing transforming our reality.

1: Bioprinting in Health Science

Scientists at North Carolina’s Wake Forest University developed a bio-printer that can produce human tissues, bones and organ which theoretically can be implanted into human body. They created muscle, bone, and ear structures using plastic-like materials and cells from rabbits, rats, mice and even humans. The most amazing thing is that the cells thus produced surviced the printing process. The structures were then implante to rodents. If technology can march this way, it can work very soon for humans too, may be by next year or the next-next year.

2: Drug Printing

Aprecia Pharmaceuticals is a US-based company that released the world's first 3D printed drug. The drug was Spritam which is commomly used to treat seizures in epileptic patients. Using  ZipDose technology they produced it by sandwiching a powdered form of the drug between liquid materials and bonding them at a microscopic level, the printed pills dissolve rapidly on contact with liquids.

3D printing is being a huge step toward more personalised medicine. Alteration by 3D printing can cahnge the size, appearance, rate and dose of delivery of drug depending on the individual.

3: DIY Dentistry

Its not surprising because its teeth. Perhaps its biggest disruption of late is that of a 20-year-old college student printing his very own set of clear, orthodontic aligners — just like the ones that sell for thousands of dollars — all for less than US$60. While apparently an ability restricted to those with access to materials and suitable learning, it exhibits how 3D printing will make customary items less expensive.

4: Robot Birds

Bird are beautiful cretures and also very dangerous if they align in the aircraft line. A Dutch company Clear Flight Sloutions has created a very high tech bird "Robirds" that is made by use of 3D printing.

They can used at airports, fields, orchards and waste sites to scare away the real birds. They have developed two types of Robirds: the falcon, which can be used to chase off birds up to 3kg, and the eagle to chase away any type of bird.

5: Bicycles

The access to 3D printed bicycle in retail market is limited due to size of printer required and also the cost and the construction challenge. But companies like  Bastion Cycles are offering  3D printable bike parts that can be printed at home. This can be great news for cycle lovers who would like to incorporate with the idea of 3D priting technology.

6: Shoes

New Balance has this week released Zante Generate Running Shoes, the first high-performance running shoe with a full-length 3D printed midsole as a very limited edition. Last year it was Adidas who produced a running shoe with a 3D printed midsole.

Outside of the sports range, shoes appear to be restricted to the domain of the exceptionally imaginative, for example, those high mold offerings by United Nude shoes. These offerings are imprinted in the store, just before the clients' eyes. One other fascinating idea is the offerings by Feetz, who 3D print shoes in light of photographs of your feet.

7: Houses

It may not be practical to mould the whole house by 3D printer at all but Contour crafting has already showed the path. Contour crafting (CC) is a layered fabrication technology developed by Dr. Behrokh Khoshnevis from the University of Southern California which is a very promising revolution in building house and construction.

Contour crafting is being rated as a valuable application for lowincome, resuce and temporary hosing and NASA is even exploring possible applications of contour crafting for building structures on other planets. Thing are getting interesting !

8: Drawings

Conceivably the funnest case of 3D printing is given by 3Doodler, a hand-held pen that permits you to "draw" your 3D printed object.

The 3Doodler is frequently contrasted with a heated glue weapon. You press a catch to begin, interruption and stop the pen. At the point when beginning your drawing, you press the tip of the pen onto a level surface and after that draw the 3D object of your creative energy in midair!

9: Guns

Not toys, but GUNS !

It is perhaps the most conceived example of 3D printing. Back in 2013, the world’s first 3D printed gun was successfully fired in the US. The gun was entirely made up of ABS plastic, the bullet was not.

The 3D printed gun’s plans were controversially released for all to access online and were subsequently downloaded 100,000 times in two days. The US government has worked hard to prevent the download and spread of these plans, however, the online release of such material is hard to undo.

10: Building of Prosthetics

3D printed prosthetics are already making an incredible difference to people in need around the world.  Refugee Open Ware is a proper example of it. It gives preparing to dislodged persons and host groups while building answers for the issues confronting casualties of contention. They at present have a manufacture research center in Jordan which trains local people to fabricate and make 3D printed prosthetics.

 No more wandering the time to wait at a traffic signal. Now BMW owners can get update on the phone.

The main thing more terrible than needing to blare the horn at somebody for not going on green at a movement light is having somebody do likewise to you. What's more, now that most drivers have a cell phone convenient and regularly utilize the couple of minutes while halted at a red light to check email, messages, and tweets, the issue of dispersing at a movement light has deteriorated.

Nextcar Bug artNow there's an application for that. It's called EnLighten and it utilizes a telephone's GPS area and continuous movement signal data gave by the region to focus when a driver is halted at a red light. It can then show on the telephone's screen a commencement in seconds of when the light will change and will likewise stable a toll when the light swings green to remind the driver that it's an ideal opportunity to get going.

The iOS and Android applications work in twelve or somewhere in the vicinity U.S. urban communities furthermore have a double clock for activity lights with discrete left-turn signals. In any case, the EnLighten iPhone application can synchronize with the dashboard of BMWs with ConnectedDrive and the BMW Apps highlight, gave you're driving in Portland or Eugene, Oregon or Salt Lake City, Utah). It offers additional elements, for example, timing movement lights so that you conceivably don't need to stop or even keep a mischance.

 Notwithstanding a movement light commencement, the presentation for EnLighten application on the BMW's in-dash screen will turn white when the commencement drops underneath 5 seconds and sound a ring. At movement lights with discrete left turn bolts, initiating the vehicle's turn sign illuminates the application that the driver plans to hang a left so that just the status of the significant sign is shown.

Another special component of the BMW variant of EnLighten is that it demonstrates data on the status of activity signs ahead, and apparently permits the vehicle to continue on the off chance that you can time your rate to the movement's grouping lights ahead. On the off chance that the light ahead is red, the EnLighten application will indicate how long till it turns green and the other way around.

Driving around Portland to test the application, and specifically on Sandy Boulevard on the city's east side, since it has loads of movement lights that can be seen from a separation. It was found that the application was in close flawless sync with movement lights, and the show's position on top of the X5M's dash permitted an unmistakable perspective of the application data without bringing on diversion.

Be that as it may, timing the lights to continue pushing ahead is more subject to movement than on having the data accessible, particularly while testing the application encompassed by slacker Portland drivers. What's more, essentially looking ahead was as useful at directing my velocity in connection to movement lights as the data from the application.

In any case, maybe the best element of the EnLighten application is a sound caution to inform the driver that a movement light they're drawing closer speaks the truth the change. This could help evade a lamentable mischance, and alone merits utilizing the free application in the event that you drive a BMW with ConnectedDrive. All things considered, getting T-boned while driving through an activity light (or incidentally doing it to another person) will demolish you day considerably more than dispersing and be blared at while ceased at a red light.

The Dislike button has long been the most asked for highlight from Facebook clients. So when Mark Zuckerberg today said in an open question answer that the organization was taking a shot at an approach to show compassion for casualties of tragedies and different things that are improper to Like, news outlets around the globe sprung enthusiastically saying the masses would soon get their wish.

However, don't hold your breath for a button called "Empathy". Zuck unequivocally said that is not what Facebook is building. 

"I ponder the Dislike button for a long time… today is the day where I really get the opportunity to say that we're dealing with it, and are near transportation a test of it."

Yet, it's not a Dislike button.

"we would not like to simply assemble a Dislike catch in light of the fact that we would prefer not to transform Facebook into a discussion where individuals are voting up or down on individuals' posts. That doesn't appear like the sort of group we need to make."

"Individuals aren't searching for a capacity to downvote other individuals' posts. What they truly need is to have the capacity to express compassion. Not every minute is a decent minute, isn't that so? Furthermore, in the event that you are sharing something that is pitiful, whether it's something in current occasions like the outcast emergency that touches you or if a relative passed away, then it may not feel good to Like that post."
"In any case, your companions and individuals need to have the capacity to express that they comprehend and that they identify with you."

Truly, this bodes well. In the event that Facebook fabricated a Dislike catch, it would noble motivation perplexity. In the event that I share a post about casualties of a characteristic fiasco, and you Dislike it, does that mean you Dislike that the disaster happened? That you Dislike the casualties? That you Dislike that I posted it? It's phenomenally vague in a manner that specifically clashes with how Facebook fabricates items.

What bodes well is a catch that passes on that you identify sympathize with a post's creator and/or those influenced by the intense circumstance.

Truth be told, Facebook as of now has a rendition of this called "Suggest". Sites can utilize it rather than the Like button to assist individuals with sharing stories that are disastrous. In any case, now Facebook is building something new to express sympathies.

Whatever wording Facebook picks, it must be broadly reasonable, translateable crosswise over dialects, brief, and unambiguous.

One probability for the button's name could be "Sad", or something of that nature. A word that when you read it, you know the sender comprehends the misery of a story, and feels for you and the casualties.

To actualize this, Facebook may give individuals presenting stories the alternative on supplant the Like button with this sympathy catch, or include one adjacent to it. Facebook could conceivably prescribe the compassion's vicinity catch contingent upon the substance of your post. For instance, on the off chance that it distinguished that what you're stating is miserable on the grounds that you incorporated the expressions "kicked the bucket", "passed away", "hurt", "let go", or "split up", or that you're connecting to a news story hailed as shocking.

Along these lines, in the event that you share something tragic, individuals don't need to be troubled about Liking it in light of the fact that they may give the wrong impression. This anxiety can trick Facebook's News Feed sorting calculation into intuition a post isn't intriguing. A sympathy catch will piece of information the calculation into when a post isn't Likable, yet it's still vital for individuals to see.

Be that as it may, it won't be straightforward. Zuckerberg said Facebook needs to breaking point utilization of the catch to communicating sensitivity when somebody posts something miserable or disquieting.

Yet, Mr Zuckerberg said he comprehended individuals were really needing to express compassion, and the new capacity would empower that.

Facebook portrayed the capacity as an approach to "give positive input and join with things you think about".

The organization a month ago reported one billion individuals had utilized Facebook as a part of a solitary day interestingly, while month to month dynamic clients have surged 13 for each penny from a year back to 1.49 bill.
