T20 World Cup 2016:Reliance Jio offering free unlimited Wi-Fi at 6 stadiums


There’s good news for cricket fans in India planning to watch the upcoming T20 World Cup matches live at stadiums. Reliance Jio today announced free high-speed Wi-Fi with unlimited downloads at six stadiums across the country.

The service offered by Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited’s Jionet will be available in Bangalore (M Chinnaswamy Stadium), Dharmashala (Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium) , Kolkata (Eden Gardens), Mohali (Punjab Cricket Association Stadium), New Delhi (Feroz Shah Kotla) and Mumbai (Wankhede Stadium). The service provider has fixed a certain range to allow only spectators inside these stadiums to have access.

Here’s how spectators can connect to Jionet services:

*Activate Wi-Fi on the smartphone and select ‘Reliance JioNet WiFi’
*Visit the login page
*Enter mobile number and generate OTP (sent via SMS)
*Log-in with the OTP

The OTP is valid for 24 hours only. The user will be automatically logged out if there is no internet activity for 30 minutes. Jionet claims to offer download speeds of 50 mbps. 

Recently, it claims to have tested the same during a match at Wankhede in which downloads of over 22TB occured on its networks.

“To make this possible, Jionet’s Wi-Fi access points (APs) will cover the entire stadium with a seating capacity of minimum 20,000. Jionet High Density is designed to provide stable high-quality Wi-Fi coverage to individuals in a densely packed groups, at which standard Wi-Fi deployments fail. High-Density Wi-Fi (HD Wi-Fi) creates lots of small radio footprints so as to be able to cater for pockets of clients in localised areas across the stadium. Thus, keeping the radio traffic between the user and the AP low, avoiding interference and congestion both,” the company said in a statement.



IITian tried to sell himself on Flipkart for 27 lakhs


While looking for a job as a product manager, a student from IIT Kharagpur puts himself on sale for Rs 27 lakh on Flipkart.

When applying for a job, the CV is probably one of the most important aspects. It can be a boring task to create one, but at the end, it all boils down to how you present yourself. Trying to add a bit of creative flair, a student from IIT Kharagpur named Aakash Neeraj Mittal found a unique way to apply for a vacancy. Hoping to land a job in Flipkart as a product manager, he tried to sell himself on the e-commerce site itself for Rs 27 lakh.

Mittal listed himself as a product and added his skills as the description. Harsh Bajaj, who was a junior to Mittal at IIT Kharagpur wrote on Quora, “A senior of mine used this really interesting way to make his resume for Flipkart by putting himself for sale on the online e-commerce giant! Literally tried to “sell himself.”

According to Bajaj, this is what Mittal wrote “When you are a 6-pointer and competing with best of the best minds of the country, you know how hard it is to land a job. You start doing some crazy and random stuff to stand out from the crowd. This is my resume for Flipkart’s APM Profile.”

While it’s sad that Mittal didn’t get any interview call from Flipkart, he still hopes his creativity can definitely cheer someone.


Facebook now rolling out new “Reactions” button


After over a year of testing and feedback from users, Facebook has started to roll out the new ‘Reactions’ button. It will help users express love, happiness, anger, shock and sadness.

In October last year, Facebook  started testing its new reaction button  that will allow users to express wide range of emotions on the social network through emojis. Now, four months later, the social media giant has started rolling out the emojis to all users. In a blog post, Facebook mention that it had been testing the new reaction buttons and now it’s ready for full-fledged release.

With the new ‘Reactions’ users now have a button to express Like, Love, Haha, Wow, Sad or Angry. Facebook expects the News Feed to be filled with more emotive responses.

To use these buttons on mobile, users need to hold down the ‘Like’ button after which the new emojis will appear. Simply tap on any of them to use it. Similarly, on a desktop, users just need to hover over the ‘Like’ button to select and use the new emojis.

While many had been expecting Facebook to introduce a ‘dislike’ button, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post “Reactions gives you new ways to express love, awe, humor and sadness. It’s not a dislike button, but it does give you the power to easily express sorrow and empathy — in addition to delight and warmth.”
