One Step Closer To Speedier, Bootless Computers

"Physicists at the University of California at Riverside have made a breakthrough in developing a 'spin computer,' which would combine logic with nonvolatile memory, bypassing the need for computers to boot up. The advance could also lead to super-fast chips. The new transistor technology, which one lead scientist believes could become a reality in about five years, would reduce power consumption to the point where eventually computers, mobile phones and other electronic devices could remain on all the time. The breakthrough came when scientists at UC Riverside successfully injected a spinning electron into a resistor material called graphene, which is essentially a very thin layer of graphite. The graphene in this case is one-atom thick. The process is known as 'tunneling spin injection.' A lead scientist for the project said the clock speeds of chips made using tunneling spin injection would be 'thousands of times' faster than today's processors. He describes the tech as a totally new concept that 'will essentially give memory some brains.'"

Small Startup Prevails In Server Cooling 'Chill Off'

"A small startup has shown exceptional energy efficiency in a data center 'chill off' comparing server cooling technologies. Clustered Systems posted the best numbers in the 18-month vendor evaluation sponsored by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group. The Menlo Park, Calif. company built a prototype server that uses no fans and cools processors with a cold plate with tubing filled with liquid coolant. The testing accidentally highlighted the opportunity for additional energy savings, when the Clustered Systems unit continued to operate during a cooling failure that raised the chiller plant water temperature from 44 to 78 degrees F."

Cooking With Your USB Ports

"Wow, I would never have thought to try and cook food with the power that a standard USB port provides, but someone did. A standard port provides 5V of power, give or take a little. I am not even sure what it takes to heat a small hotplate, but I am sure it is more than 5V. It looks like the guy tied together around 30 USB cables powered by his PC to power this small hotplate. But believe it or not, it seems to have cooked the meat perfectly."

AOL Spends $1M On Solid State Memory SAN

"AOL recently completed the roll out of a 50TB SAN made entirely of NAND flash in order to address performance issues with its relational database. While the flash memory fixed the problem, it didn't come cheap, at about four times the cost of a typical Fibre Channel disk array with the same capacity, and it performs at about 250,000 IOPS. One reason the flash SAN is so fast is that it doesn't use a SAS or PCIe backbone, but instead has a proprietary interface that offers up 5 to 6Gb/s throughput. AOL's senior operations architect said the SAN cost about $20 per gigabyte of capacity, or about $1 million. But, as he puts it, 'It's very easy to fall in love with this stuff once you're on it.'"

A quick look at the Windows Phone 7 demo

Yesterday, Steve Ballmer took the stage to orchestrate the introduction of his company's long-awaited revamp of its phone operating system. We've picked up a few review units, but aren't able to talk about them at the moment, so we thought we'd share some of our photos of the event to hold you over until the reviews are ready. Some of them reveal a bit about the Windows Phone 7 interface.

Intel's upgradable processor: good sense or utter catastrophe?

Intel's upgradable processor: good sense or utter catastrophe?
Intel is about to experiment with a new concept in mass-market processors with its forthcoming Pentium G6951 CPU: upgradability. The chips will be upgradable by end users via a purchased code that is punched in to a special program. Previews of the processor quietly hit the Web last month, and with Engadget's post of the retail packaging, people took notice with reactions ranging from surprise to outright disgust.
The Pentium G6951 is a low-end processor. Dual core, 2.8GHz, 3 MB cache, and expected to be around $90 each when bought in bulk—identical to the already-shipping Pentium G6950. The special part is the software unlock. Buy an unlock code for around $50, run the software downloaded from Intel's site, and your processor will get two new features: hyperthreading will be enabled, and another 1 MB of cache will be unlocked, giving the chip a specification just short of Intel's lowest Core i3-branded processor, the 2.93 GHz Core i3-530. Once unlocked, the G6951 becomes a G6952.( More … )

Probabilistic processors possibly pack potent punch

Probabilistic processors possibly pack potent punch
A DARPA-funded processor start-up has made bold claims about a new kind of processor that computes using probabilities, rather than the traditional ones and zeroes of conventional processors. Lyric Semiconductor, an MIT spin-off, claims that its probabilistic processors could speed up some kinds of computation by a factor of a thousand, allowing racks of servers to be replaced with small processing appliances.
Calculations involving probabilities have a wide range of applications. Many spam filters, for example, work on the basis of probability; if an e-mail contains the word "Viagra" it's more likely to be spam than one which doesn't, and with enough of these likely-to-be-spam words, the filter can flag the mail as being spam with a high degree of confidence. Probabilities are represented as numbers between 0, impossible, and 1, certain. A fair coin toss has a probability of 0.5 of coming up heads.( More … )

FSF Announces Hardware Endorsement Criteria

"The Free Software Foundation has announced criteria for the hardware endorsement program 'Respects Your Freedom.' From the announcement: 'The desire to own a computer or device and have full control over it, to know that you are not being spied on or tracked, to run any software you wish without asking permission, and to share with friends without worrying about Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) — these are the desires of millions of people who care about the future of technology and our society. (...) With our endorsement mark and the strong criteria that back it, we plan to bridge that gap and demonstrate to manufacturers that they stand to gain plenty by making hardware that respects people's freedom instead of curtailing it.' While it currently contains some requirements that many may find broader than what they personally need, the remaining criteria would make the FSF endorsement a useful tool when looking for devices that give the owner control over the device they have bought and paid for. The criteria are still open for feedback."

Study Shows Babies Think Friendly Robots Are Sentient

"A study from University of Washington claims that babies think robots are human, so long as the robots are friendly. No word on what evil robots are thought to be. From the article: 'At 18 months old, babies have begun to make conscious delineations between sentient beings and inanimate objects. But as robots get more and more advanced, those decisions may become harder to make. What causes a baby to decide a robot is more than bits of metal? As it turns out, it takes more than humanoid looks — babies rely on social interaction to make that call.'"

Unspoofable Device Identity Using Flash Memory 

wiredmikey writes with a story from Security Week that describes a security silver lining to the inevitable errors that arise in NAND flash chips. By seeking out (or intentionally causing) defects in a given part of the chip, a unique profile can be created for any device using NAND flash which the author says may be obscured, but not reproduced: "[W]e recognize devices (or rather: their flash memory) by their defects. Very much like humans recognize faces: by their defects (or deviations from the 'norm') a bigger nose, a bit too bushy eyebrows, bigger cheeks. The nice twist is that if an attacker manages to read your device identity, he cannot inscribe it into his own device. Yes, he can create errors — like we did. But he cannot control where in the block they occur as this relies solely on microscopic manufacturing defects in the silicon."

Huge Shocker — 3D TVs Not Selling

"It comes as no surprise to the vast majority of us who haven't rushed out to buy a 3D TV, but according to a DisplaySearch report consumers aren't doing their part to make 2010 the year of 3D TV, says blogger Peter Smith. And the stats are even worse than Smith imagined they'd be: 'DisplaySearch estimates that 3.2 million 3D TVs will be shipped in 2010. Note, that's shipped, not sold. 3.2 million equates to 2% of all flat panel displays shipped (as far as I can ascertain, that's worldwide shipments). So yeah, there are not many 3D TVs being shipped this year. But wait, that's not the end of the bad news. In Western Europe (the only region where they offered this data point) sales of 3D glasses are less than 1 per 3D set sold. In other words, a lot of Western Europeans who buy a TV with 3D capability don't even bother to buy the glasses to use that feature.'"

Pirate Electrician Supplied Power To 1,500 Homes

 "A former electrical engineer for utility EDF has been prosecuted for illegally supplying power to some 1,500 homes in north London. Derek Brown, 45, was arrested in 2008 after being seen tampering with the electric grid in a manhole. He specialized in connecting separate supplies to houses that were split into apartments. One landlord involved, Haresh Parmar, was jailed for 9 months for stealing £30,000 worth of electricity for 22 of his apartments. Brown's assets will be seized and he has been sentenced to 8 months suspended, and 150 hours community service."

The World's Most Expensive iPhone

"British designer Stuart Hughes, 38, of Liverpool, was commissioned to make two of the bespoke handset by a mega-rich Australian businessman. The handset is wrapped in more than 500 individual flawless cut diamonds totalling 100 carats. It features two interchangeable diamonds which fit over the 'home' button - a single cut 7.4 carat pink diamond and a rare 8 carat single cut flawless diamond which are together worth more than £4 million. The back of the phone is plated in rose gold and the Apple logo glitters with 53 diamonds."

Back To the Mac' Media Event On October 20th

"Engadget reports that Apple has issued invitations for a special media event to be held next Wednesday, October 20th at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. The invitation for the event, which is to be held at the company's campus in Cupertino, California, carries the tagline 'Back to the Mac.' The invitation also contains an image of what appears to be a lion peeking out from behind the Apple logo, hinting at discussion of Mac OS X 10.7. 'Lion' has been one of the most commonly-suggested 'big cat' names for the next-generation operating system. Much of Apple's notebook line with the exception of the entry-level MacBook is due for a refresh, and Apple has refreshed at least a portion of its notebook line each October or November for the last several years. Apple's desktop offerings have all been updated relatively recently, suggesting that the company's media event may focus on notebooks if new hardware is included on the agenda."

Apple Awarded Anti-Sexting Patent

"If your parenting skills aren't up to snuff, Apple's got a patent on the device that will allow you to control what your child sends and receives. Entitled 'Text-based communication control for personal communication device,' this patent uses examples like increasing the number of Spanish words your child receives so that they can better learn Spanish. You could even use it to control your child's grammar and spelling in outgoing text messages. But news sources seem to be focusing on the censorship issue that Apple has been criticized for before: 'The control is in line with earlier efforts adopted by Apple like Playboy which entered into a deal with Apple to censor its content to secure a place in App Store.' Perhaps the wives and agents of popular athletes would be more interested in this technology? Apple is certainly sending a message opposite to the one Microsoft advertises."

iPhone 4 Screens Break 82% More Than 3GS

A surprising number of readers have submitted linkage to a story discussing a recently released study that proclaims that iPhone 4 glass breaks way more often than the 3GS's. Although the chart that I found more surprising was the one that said almost 9% of iPhone 3GS screens crack after a year.

iPhone Opens Up Bluetooth For Data

"Apple has loosened its tight grip on the iPhone and allowed a third party to develop a health device that exchanges data with the iPhone and their hardware. Is this the start of a trend for Apple that will relax constraints on non-audio Bluetooth use, or is this an exception? Does anyone know of any other devices for the iPhone that allows non-audio Bluetooth transmission of data?" Reader climenole points out an article about another health-sensor system, dubbed a "body area network," that is built to work with Android devices, but not via Bluetooth.

Motorola Sues Apple

"Just a week after Motorola Inc. (MOT) itself became the target of legal action by Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), it sued Apple Inc. (AAPL) for the alleged infringement of 18 of its patents. Motorola subsidiary, Motorola Mobility Inc. also filed patent suits against Apple in federal court in Illinois and Florida."

The Hackintosh Guide

"A 'Hackintosh' is a computer that runs Apple's OS X operating system on non-Apple hardware. This has been possible since Apple's switch from IBM's PowerPC processors to Intel processors a few years ago. Until recently, building a PC-based Mac was something done only by hard-core hackers and technophiles, but in the last few months, building a Hackintosh PC has become much easier. Benchmark Reviews looks at what it's possible to do with PC hardware and the Mac Snow Leopard OS today, and the pros and cons of building a Hackintosh computer system over purchasing a supported Apple Mac Pro."

Microsoft buying Adobe would fix both companies' Apple problem

The New York Times is reporting that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has recently been at a secret meeting with Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen to discuss topics including the two companies' mutual competitor, Apple.
The Times says that the companies were investigating ways to partner in order to do battle with Apple. One option was for Microsoft to acquire Adobe, a claim that has seen Adobe's stock price surge by more than 10 percent. Read More ...

October 2010 Patch Tuesday will come with most bulletins ever

According to the Microsoft Security Response Center, Microsoft will issue 16 Security Bulletins addressing 49 vulnerabilities on Tuesday, October 12. It will also host a webcast to address customer questions the following day.
Four of the vulnerabilities are rated "Critical," 10 are marked "Important," and the last two are classified as "Moderate." All of the Critical vulnerabilities earned their rating through a remote code execution impact, meaning a hacker could potentially gain control of an infected machine. At least eight of the 16 patches will require a restart. Read More ...

Microsoft sues Motorola, citing Android patent infringement

Microsoft has announced a lawsuit against Motorola, alleging that several of the mobile company's Android devices infringe on nine of its patents. The software giant is suing in US District Court in Washington, and is also bringing a complaint before the International Trade Commission (ITC). The patents are all related to key smartphone experiences that include syncing e-mails, calendars, and contacts, scheduling meetings, and notifying applications about changes in signal strength and battery power. Microsoft specifically names two Motorola devices, the Droid 2 and the Charm, but says these are just examples and not a comprehensive list.
The suit comes just as Microsoft readies the release of its Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system, the successor to Windows Mobile. Motorola was once a big backer of Windows Mobile, but in recent years it has shifted to Google's Android. Although manufacturers can use Android for free, Microsoft argues that phone makers should consider the potential patent infringement issues and the related costs of the mobile OS.

IE9 beta not enough to keep IE market share over 60% mark

2010 will be remembered as the year when Chrome took off despite Microsoft's attempts to hold on to its shrinking browser market share. It looks like Internet Explorer's two months of market share gains were an aberration. Other trends are continuing as before: Firefox is steady between 20 and 25 percent share, Chrome is steadily moving forward, and Safari trudges onward. Opera, meanwhile, is still hanging on to the leftover scraps. Everyone but Microsoft saw at least a modest market share gain in September. Read More ...

Crackdown on Zeus Trojan crime ring in progress, 60 charged

Law enforcement agencies say that over 60 people have been charged with trying to siphon millions of dollars out of banks by using the Zeus Trojan program. Police made about 11 of the arrests in New York City, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New York City police department.
It also appears that these busts are related to a crackdown in London yesterday in which 19 people were accused of being part of a cybercrime ring that stole about £6 million from UK banks.
The Zeus Trojan is a sneaky little sucker. It's designed to trick users into downloading the program via various phishing scams. Then Zeus goes into keystroke logging mode, tracking your bank and credit account data as you type away on your computer.
The application can also be designed to make individual installations vary, so that it's harder for antivirus software to track down. Plus kos, or "kill operating system" code can be written into the Zeus program. This extra feature doesn't wipe out user data, but it does make it difficult to reboot the system.
The Department of Justice and Manhattan District Attorney say they'll disclose more details about the case today. The UK banks involved include the Royal Bank of Scotland and HSBC holdings.

Unity 3 brings very expensive dev tools at a very low price

Indie game development tool Unity got a big update today with version 3. Unity is well known for its use in mobile Web and 3D mobile game development, but this new release brings some desktop and console graphics features usually only seen in more expensive high-end development packages like UDK.
Unity 3 brings deferred rendering (allowing for many real-time lights with little added rendering overhead), a built-in tree editor, native font rendering, automatic UV mapping, audio filters, occlusion culling for desktop OSes and, most notably, integration of Illuminate Labs' Beast Lightmap tool. Beast has been used extensively in games like Mirror's Edge and Killzone 2 to create efficient, high-quality 32-bit floating point shadow maps.
Unity 3 also adds Android support, although it's still undergoing polishing. Unity remains free for commercial use for Web and desktop game development and Unity Pro remains $1,500 per seat.
It has been a good month for the people at Unity. Apple recently loosened restrictions on the use of cross-compilers for iOS development, which was aimed at Flash, but also caught a lot of fish like mono-based Unity in the net. Then Unity won The Wall Street Journal 2010 Technology Innovation Award for software. The year looks good for Unity users as well—the company plans a free upgrade to version 3 that integrates Allegorithmic's Substance, a powerful procedural texture generation tool. If you're an existing Unity user, it's hard to find a reason not to upgrade.

Home WiFi Network Security Failings Exposed

"The shocking state of home wireless (Wi-Fi) network security in the UK has been revealed by a life assistance company study. CPP used an 'ethical hacker,' Jason Hart, to test thousands of Wi-Fi networks across six UK cities, including London. He found that many didn't even have a password and roughly half of home UK Wi-Fi networks could be hacked in less than 5 seconds."

Erasing Objects From Video In Real Time 

Smoothly interpolating away objects in still pictures is impressive enough, but reader geoffbrecker writes with a stunning demonstration from Germany's Technical University of Ilmenau of on-the-fly erasure of selected objects in video. Quoting: "The effect is achieved by an image synthesizer that reduces the image quality, removes the object, and then increases the image quality back up. This all happens within 40 milliseconds, fast enough that the viewer doesn't notice any delay."

4G vs. 3G vs. WiFi Throughput For Samsung's Epic 4G

Some of the most popular Android smartphones currently available are members of Samsung's Galaxy S line. Powered by Samsung's own 1GHz ARM Cortex A8-based Hummingbird processor with a four-inch Super-AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, it's no wonder Samsung has sold over 5 million Galaxy S phones. The Epic 4G variant of this phone, available through Sprint, is also one of the scant few 4G capable devices on the market currently. Sprint's 4G network utilizes WiMAX mobile broadband, with a theoretical maximum throughput of 40Mbps. Sprint claims that the average download speed on its 4G network is between 3 to 6Mbps, with peak download speeds above 10Mbps. The performance figures seen here actually show solid throughput for the Epic, besting competitive 3G devices and even versus some with a Wi-Fi connection. 4G WiMAX service is still rather limited geographically, but hopefully devices like these will help to kick the roll-out into gear a bit.

Can Apps Really Damage a Cellular Network?

"In FCC filings earlier this year, T-Mobile described how the behavior of one Android IM app nearly brought their cellular data network to a breakdown in one city. Even more interesting, the US carrier describes how just the 300,000 unlocked iPhones on their network caused massive spikes in data usage. T-Mobile is using these anecdotes as evidence that mobile carriers should be able to retain control over the applications and devices on their network to ensure quality of service for all users. Do they have a point?"

Devs Grapple With 100+ Versions of Android

"The scale of the challenge facing Android developers has been laid bare by Twitter client TweetDeck. During beta testing of its new software, TweetDeck encountered more than 36,000 testers using an enormous pool of 244 different handsets. Not only was hardware for the platform fragmented, but Tweetdeck had to contend with more than a hundred different versions of Android, highlighting just how muddled the market is for the open-source platform. The splintering of Android is making life difficult for app developers. 'It's not particularly harder to develop for Android over iPhone (from a programming standpoint),' said Christopher Pabon, a developer who writes apps for both the iPhone and Android platforms. 'Except when it comes to final quality assurance and testing. Then it can be a nightmare (a manageable nightmare, mind you).'"

When You Really, Really Want to Upgrade a Tiny Notebook

"The famous Sony VAIO UX UMPC may have been cancelled a few years back by Sony, but the community at Micro PC Talk won't let it die. Modder Anh has carefully removed the relatively slow 1.33Ghz Core Solo CPU and installed a much faster Intel Core 2 Duo U7700 (a process which involves reballing the entire CPU). On top of this, he managed to install an incredibly small 4-port USB hub into the unit which allowed for the further instillation of a Huawei E172 modem for 3G data/voice/SMS, a GPS receiver, and a Pinnacle HD TV receiver. All of this was done without modifying the device's tiny external case. Great high-res pictures of the motherboard with the modded hardware can be seen through the link."

Linux Kernel Development 3rd Ed

"Linux Kernel Development Third Edition by Robert Love is the perfect book for the beginning or intermediate Linux kernel hacker. It provided me an excellent bridge between the high level introduction I had in college (from Operating Systems Concepts) and the actual kernel code. The best part about this book is that the chapters are — like the kernel — modular, and allow the reader to dig down in a particular part if they have a specific interest. This, in conjunction with Love's indications of which files and code snippets contain the logic, gave me confidence to clone the kernel, make tiny adjustments, compile and run. At four hundred pages, the book is a long read, but for kernel newbies like me it's a better alternative to jumping into the millions of lines of code. While you might find this information in pieces floating around online, this book balances clarity with brevity in an exceptional manner. It should also be noted that this book defaults to the x86 architecture when explaining architecture-sensitive parts of the kernel (with 64-bit differences occasionally outlined)." Read More ...

The announcement e-mail has more details."

Ubuntu Won't Moan To EU About Microsoft 

"The company behind the Ubuntu Linux distro says it has no plans to follow Opera's lead and file a complaint against Microsoft to the EU. Ubuntu 10.10 is the most 'consumer-friendly' version of the Linux distro to date, but it faces an uphill battle against Microsoft's marketing machine. Even high-profile supporter Dell has dropped Ubuntu machines from its website in recent months, while continuing to remind visitors that 'Dell recommends Windows 7' at the top of every PC page. 'I don't think we've ever considered [an EU complaint],' said Steve George, vice president of business development at Canonical. 'The improvements we're making to Ubunutu ... are a better route for us to reach out to users and get a bigger user base.'" 

Microsoft Admits Is a Contender

 "Microsoft has unwittingly admitted that is a rival, by launching a three-minute video of customers explaining why they switched to Microsoft Office from Glyn Moody writes: 'You don't compare a rival's product with your own if it is not comparable. And you don't make this kind of attack video unless you are really, really worried about the growing success of a competitor. [Microsoft] has now clearly announced that is a serious rival to Microsoft Office, and should be seriously considered by anyone using the latter.'"

Hi Everyone,         
I am Debabrata Biswas, a student of MCA of Siliguri Institute of Technology of 2007 pass-out batch. Zensar Technologies came for campus selection process for MCA’s only at the Techno India College on August 8 & 9, 2006. Their recruitment process has the following stages:
          I] Aptitude Test of 80 minutes duration. It has four sections – English, Quantitative, Verbal reasoning & Technical section which contained only C & C++.
Number of questions in each section ranged between 20-25.In all there was 86 questions in my paper where as other sets had between 80 to 90. There was no negative marking .There was no sectional cut-off but there were sectional time limits of 20 minutes each. U r only allowed moving on to the next section only when the time of a section was up.
          II] Technical & HR interview. For some there were separate interviews others had it one. There were two member panels.

          In the English section there were standard GRE type questions i.e. Synonyms [“Words which mean closest to the following”], Antonyms which had words like lucid,
Sumptuous, censure etc. There were also analogy questions [“which of the following best illustrates a relationship similar to the given relation”]. This part had questions like carpenter: saw then what:?. There was also passage of about 200 word length on African & European arts which contained some tough sentences. Each of the above types had 4-5 questions. Anyone who is acquainted with GRE Baron’s will be able to do most of the questions.
          Next section was Quantitative. This was the easiest section. Most of the questions were from RS Agarwal book. Anyone who has practiced that book can easily do 17-18 of 22 odd questions.
          Then there was easily the toughest section in reasoning. This is mainly bcoz the questions were lengthy & it was difficult to do in 20 minutes. It had data interpretation from bar charts, puzzle. It also had arrangement problem with certain conditions given. It was like among P, Q, R & S, T, U only Q & S can drive. They were going by a car in which people sat in two rows. No group member sits beside member of same group. There were certain other conditions given & situations based on which u had to find sitting arrangements. Then there was a question on order of events - In a certain refresher course 6 subjects r taught. There were conditions given & u had to find order in which the subjects were taught. RS Agarwal verbal reasoning book needs to be practiced well for this section.
          The last section was Technical. It mainly had small but tricky pieces of code given in C & C++ & u had to predict the output. This was mainly there to check the logical concepts. Most of it u’ll find on books like “test ur C skills” & “exploring C” by kanetkar.
          The cut-off marks were not announced. But as sectional cut-off was not there, the feeling one got was that a score of around 50-55 [out of 86] will clinch it for u. From 350+ aspirants from 8 colleges they selected 40 for the interview in the next day. I was among those selected.

          On the next day they gave a detailed PPT before the start of the interview process. They also give u a form to fill up. U also need to bring 2 copies of ur CV as they’ll take one copy of the CV along with the form. All candidates were given call numbers. Those with odd call numbers faced one panel & the evens faced the other panel. The duration of interviews ranged from 15 to as much as 45 minutes.
          In the interview Firstly I was asked about how my test was. Later I got to know that many were asked this innocuous looking but potentially dangerous question first up. I suggest however good ur test may be, be a little reserved on this. Then they thoroughly grilled on C & C++. Questions on c ranged from operators, to maximum size of arrays, linking of header files, compilation, assembler, pre-processor, the file inclusion, whether one can build a header file etc. in C++ they asked about OO concepts, encapsulation, abstraction, virtual functions & how they work, polymorphism, inheritance. In DBMS I was asked to name some commercial DBMS packages & whether MS Access was one. Also what normalization was & how it was done. Also what client server architecture was & to give a real life example of it. In DS I was asked about what queue how it worked & whether one could have a LIFO queue. Also what r single & double linked lists.
          In the HR Interview they first of all they told me that “I am giving u two minutes to sell urself to us”. Thereafter they asked about me, my hobbies. They also asked what other campus processes I had attended & what had happened in them. Finally they asked whether I had any questions & I asked two questions.
          Finally they announced the results half an hour after the process was over. They selected 21 candidates. I was selected as was 5 others from my batch. We were really happy for each other.
          Prepare well & u can surely become a “ZENSARian”!

[PlacementPapers] ZENSAR PAPER AND INTERVIEW ON 11th March 2007, Sathyamangalam


Hi Friends, I am Nagarajan, a student of EEE DISCIPLINE of Bannari Amman Institute Of Technology, Sathyamangalam.Their recruitment process has the following stages:
I] Aptitude Test of 80 minutes duration. It has four sections – English, Quantitative, Verbal reasoning & Technical section which contained only C & C++.

Each section consists of 22Questions.In all there was 88 questions in my paper where as other sets had between 80 to 90. There was no negative marking .There was an sectional cut-off but there were sectional time limits of 20 minutes each. U r only allowed moving on to the next section only when the time of a section was up.

II] There was a separate technical and HR rounds.

TECHNICAL INTERVIEW: On the next day they gave a detailed PPT before the start of the interview process. They also give u a form to fill up. U also need to bring 2 copies of ur CV and 2 photocopies of your own as they’ll take one copy of the CV(with your photo) along with the form.The duration of interviews ranged from 15 to as much as 45 minutes.

I was the last the person to attended the interview.In the Technical interview I was asked about the following questions:

 * Tell about your favourite subjects?
 * why did you chhose your favourite subject as DigitalLogicCircuits?
 * Draw the EX-OR Gate using NAND Logic(NAND gate) and explin it with the truth table?

 * Explain about the Binary traversals?
 * What is Inorder,Preorder,Postorder?

 They had asked me only the basic concepts what i had studied in my Curriculum.

HR INTERVIEW:(In the HR Interview they were very friendly and also they expect the frank answer from the candidates whom attended the process).In the HR I was asked about the following questions:

 * firstly i was asked to tell about my family?
 * what do you like most in your Institution?
 * what you don't like most in your Institution?
 * what would you like like to change in your Institution?
 * Why did you choosen career in EEE?
 * Where would you be after 10yrs.?
 * Would you like to grow in the Proffesional line?
 * what are all the changes that you had observed in your Institution?
 * How about the interview process?
 * How do you feel about written test?
 * do you have any Questions to ask me?

Finally they announced the results one day after the process was over. They selected 9 candidates. I was selected as was 9 others from my batch. We were really happy for each other.

Don't be tensed while attending the interview.Because they were very friendly with you guys.also be confident on your self.Answer as many questions as possible in the technical session with practical examples.
The aptitude round was act as a high elimination roundfor us.The Technical section consists mostly of DBMS questions with few c and c++ questions.The analytical section consists of very simple mathematical prooblems relating with average,missing nos,etc...but they had given five sets of question papers( booklet )one for each candidate.the verbal section was also easy containing some Anagram,Fill in the blanks with appropriate words,one simple comprehension.(No need to prepare separately for verbal section).but the logical section is some what tougher than verbal section.the time management should bo very important to answer atleast 85% of the questions.It is not possible to answer correctly for all the questions,it is just enough if you answer the questions correctly of what you are doing with the help of rough sheets and using your knowledge.But there will be a sectional cutoff marks.
Prepare well & u can surely become a “ZENSARian”!
