PROJECT: Make The World’s Smallest Laptop For Hacking And Everything Else
Carrying a machine everywhere, which is capable of doing ethical hacking without getting noticed, is important in some hacking related tasks for which you may not like to carry a big laptop. For this we need a smart device to test the exploitation and network penetration and injection of malware and viruses. Ethical hacking requires small-size machine that is as capable as a full-specs laptop but small enough to be hidden and carried anywhere

POLICY: Telecom Policy Amendment Creating Confusion: No R&D, No Value Addition Required?
Should the manufacturers of telecom products in India, and those planning to start their manufacture, invest in setting up a local manufacturing ecosystem or just import the components and stick to assembling only with no value addition or local content. The Department of Telecommunication (DoT) seems to be encouraging imports through recent amendments to its DPIIT Notified Public Procurement Policy 2017, which may hit domestic manufacture of the telecom components and parts!
It seems, national and international companies in India can now just assemble imported parts and components and the entire cost of imports plus local assembly would be considered as local manufacture cost. The companies would thus become eligible as Class I manufacturers and qualify for preference for public procurements and get all the benefits under PPP MII.
This would also eliminate the need of the Indian specifications notified by DoT themselves through Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC). On the other hand, there are PLI schemes offering incentives for promoting electronics manufacture within the country. Is the new amendment against the dream and vision of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi?
Given below are the views of Prof. N.K. Goyal, Chairman Emeritus, Telecom Equipment Manufacturers Association of India (TEMA) as told to Mukul Yudhveer Singh, Business Editor at EFY
