10 days to go: Microsoft Windows Server 2003 on the verge of extinction July 04, 2015 17:12

Can a 11-year old mobile compete with the latest smartphone? It cannot. Simply because it cannot perform all the tasks, which a latest smartphone can do.Will you use an old elevator, which doesn’t have any support or maintenance? Just because it is functioning. I am sure, you don’t.Same is the case when it comes to a software. The damage at times would cost the company. There is an estimated 23.8 million instances of Windows Server 2003 running across 11.9 million physical servers worldwide. The numbers are absolutely astounding, but now that Microsoft has announced that it is going to stop providing support for the former version and it is only 10 days to go for its extinction, it’s high time for businesses and CIOs to look either for the migration or for a better alternative.According to Spice works, a global professional network of more than 5 million IT Professionals, 64.5% of organizations who use its tools in Asia Pacific are still running at least one instance of Windows Server 2003 as of June 2014. Now, it’s better to see it as an opportunity to make changes to align to a mobile-first, cloud-first world? Many CIOs won’t refuse funding to modernize infrastructure. Because risks involved with running a server software application that is no longer supported include: increased exposure to software failure - Microsoft will stop supporting new software add-ons making updating applications a potentially dangerous gamble; heightened security risks - new security flaws will no longer be patched; and finally one runs the chance of falling out of the compliance good books. For example, according to the credit card industry’s PCI Security Council standards, if an unsupported operating system is Internet-facing, it will be logged as an automatic compliance failure. Additionally, should being compliant with standards such as the PCI Data Security standard and the health industry’s HIPAA not be an issue within the organization, it may still result in the company being cut off from partners seeking to preserve their own compliant status.Also the impact would be on a greater scale than that of Windows XP’s end of support, which was just a desktop operating system. - Manohar

Also read: Balakrishna responds on his family On the other side, Purandeshwari, the former Visakhapatnam MP and daughter of legend NTR has finally got an identity in BJP. The party had appointed her as an additional incharge of the Karnataka state. She is now the national president of the ‘Mahila Morcha’.After a disastrous defeat in Rajampet Lok Sabha election by her opponent YS Avinash Reddy, Purandeshwari was not heard in the media again. In fact, this might be the reason for the BJP, to ignore Purandeshwari, the reports stated. On the other side, her brother Nandamuri Balakrishna won as an MLA from Hindupur and was moving forward in his political career well. This made the Nandamuri fans to pray for Purandeshwari for her success. May be those prayers got a result now. Finally, Purandeshwari is identified by the BJP party and hope this recognition would continue on her and also hope that Puradeshwari keeps up the responsibility party put on her and thus fetch higher posts, which would help her to progress forward in her political career.  By Phani

Video games can ease troubling memories, finds study July 04, 2015 12:25

If you are depressed or suffering from troubling memories, scientists suggest playing video games to get ease from that stress. To prove this, the researchers conducted two experiments. They examined the participants by allowing them to view films that contained scenes of traumatic content (for example, footage highlighting the dangers of drunk driving) as a way of experimentally inducing intrusive memories. After 24 hours that are asked to return to the lab. In the first experiment, half of the participants had their memories of the film reactivated by viewing selected stills from the film footage, followed by a 10-minute filler task, and then 12 minutes of playing the computer game Tetris. The other participants completed only the filler task and then sat quietly for 12 minutes.The researchers concluded that participants who had their memories reactivated and played Tetris experienced significantly fewer intrusive memories in a diary over the next week than the participants who came to the lab and simply sat quietly for the equivalent period of time.The results were published in the journal Psychological Science.By Lizitha
