There’s a startup in India quietly crunching enormous amounts of dark data. Quantta Analytics is digesting unstructured data – text messages, documents, email, video and audio files, and still images. It also ingests stuff from the deep web – everything online that is not indexed by search engines, including anonymous, inaccessible sites known as the “dark web,” and spilling its secrets to about a hundred entities paying for...

Google has revamped its Android app making a number of changes to its Google Now cards and functionality. These alterations don’t do much to alter the core experience, but include a few aesthetic and functional tweaks, not all of which are being well received.

Immediately noticeable is the new design of the Google Feed panel found in the left-most home screen when using the Pixel Launcher. This is now semi-transparent, revealing the device wallpaper in the spaces around the Now Cards — a feature that was first spotted back in June. This arrives...

Indian IT bellwether Infosys took a beating this morning. Its managing director and CEO Vishal Sikka announced his resignation with immediate effect today.

“… Despite our successes over the last three years, and the powerful seeds of innovation that we have sown, I cannot carry out my job as CEO and continue to create value, while also constantly defending against unrelenting, baseless/malicious and increasingly personal attacks,” Sikka wrote in an email to Infosys employees.

Infosys had poached Vishal...

We live in a world that is becoming increasingly digital every day. With the growing presence of email, file sharing and digital distribution even in traditionally low tech fields, it’s hard to imagine paper and printing as a growth industry. How then does one account for the staggering growth of online printing company Raksul in recent years?

Part of the answer is the difference in paper culture between East and West. In America or Europe, the fax machine is often seen as a relic that’s been replaced, like the turn dial phone or the typewriter. Not so in Japan, where 87.5% of Japanese businessmen surveyed say that...

In India, customers of Café Coffee Day, a popular chain, can open a Digibank bank account when they pay for coffee. To do so, they need only their biometric-enabled ID card called Aadhaar, and Digibank’s app.

Each cafe outlet has a thumbprint reader for online authentication of customers. After this is confirmed, the bank’s software interfaces with the café’s cash register, captures the information, and opens the bank account.

DBS Bank launched Digibank, a mobile-only bank in India in April last year.

It now has 1.2 million customers and projects that by 2021,...

Alongside the six new Zenfone 4 smartphones that Asus launched during its event in Taiwan, the company also announced ZenUI 4.0, its latest Android skin that will make its debut in the Zenfone 4 series.

Previous ZenUI versions were known for their bloatware, and though it did not generally affect a phone’s performance, it’s not as if we were thrilled to see so much of it. Asus hopes to change that with ZenUI 4.0, which brings the number of pre-installed apps down from 35 on ZenUI 3.5 to 13. In addition to those 13 apps,...

Gboard, Google’s official mobile keyboard, comes with a few perks, such as a beta version that allows folks to try out new features before they are available to the masses. Those people have more stuff to try out today, since Google updated the Gboard beta to include support for stickers and the Snapchat-owned Bitmoji.

When typing a message to someone, you will now see a sticker tab that you can access from the top button bar or overflow menu, depending on where you move it to. You can also...
