Stupidest Technology Questions Often Googled

Technology is invading the planet. It’s literally replacing the need for human beings in every sphere. There are cars that drive itself, robots which go to work, homes which can talk and so on, no wonder why humans out there are afraid and asking so many questions, especially to Google about the stuff they think technology could do or at least they expect Google to give a satisfactory explanation. compiled a list of five stupidest technology questions ever Googled by people, which never had an answer or it will.

Here are the questions.

# What Rights Do Robots Have?

This question actually lies in the brink. But as of now there does not exist even a single written law that robots have to live by. So for the time being, they can do whatever they want and apparently you can’t do anything about it. So what about the future? There may come a day when your children will be playing with their surrogate copy robot and they may also come under the laws. 

# How to Stop Hearing Voices through Electronics?

Ghosts are one of the worst things ever connected to technology. They are reported to appear everywhere, as voices in recordings to the strange voice you hear while swapping through the dead TV channels.

Apparently, you can’t do anything except listening to them and do whatever it says- May be pushing your haunted car off the bridge to beating up your disturbing neighbor and according to cracked, the voice will eventually leave you alone.

# Who invented Ice?

Whoever it is, ice is the worst. It sinks ships, gets under the car tire and hit you in the face at the end of your drink.

If you are still thinking, keep thinking about it.

# Can You make a Lot of Money Reading Emails?

It must be one of the dumbest question ever asked on Google and mostly the best one used to cheat the unaware millions in the cyber-space.

But according to Wicked, you can actually make money by reading the emails- not yours but your boss’s, especially when you find some words like affair, extortion or murder!

# What Inventions Haven’t Been Made?

Many of the people are so optimistic about technology that they keep on asking the above question since the technology is likely not to stop inventing anytime in the future.

So cracked gave a list of things which you can invent now and they will pay you in long run. Here are some of them- magazines which glow in the dark, a secret translator which will make you understand what the birds and pets say and a special glass which lets you see animals with souls!

Views on India's Narendra Modi

A kaleidoscope of events – lot told, half heard and less explored - Narendra Modi’s political life has been quite eventful which on one side is being adored as a role model and the most competent leader in the country while on the other, he is still the most divisive figure and a hated pariah for much of the Western world.

“Ill-told and ill-heard” - the Modi brigade rubbishes the never-ending stories on their enigmatic leader for whom he is the most possible future prime minister of India and his opponents, despite his fast evolving image changeover, still term his a mass murder of Muslims, on the memories of the 2002 Gujarat riots - the darkest chapter that refuses to fade away from history. His rise would rejuvenate the economy of the country but his lineage of aggressive Hindutva nationalism would polarize the country on religious lines and in all possibility, would undermine the long-cherished secular identity of the world’s largest democracy and a key American strategic ally, writes Simon Denyer of the Washingtonpost.

He is being looked upon quite enviously, even by his opponents, for his administrative excellence by which he has uprooted corruption and promoted economic and industrial growth in Gujarat. The Gujarat government under the leadership of Modi attracted investment from all over the world and many leading companies, including those from America like Ford and General Motors, flocked to the new-found favorite investment destination to do business.

However, the United States didn’t seem to have taken these good records into consideration as it denied him a visa over and again for his alleged involvement in the Gujarat riots. He was accused of failing to stop the riot during which nearly 1,000 to 2,000 Muslims were massacred and is also accused of actively encouraging the slaughter.

However, what reflects in his ever swelling popularity is a public demand among certain sections of the middle classes for a strong and decisive leader who can cure the plague of corruption, challenge the Chinese upper hand in the region, prevent the recurring terrorist attacks and finally, it also represents the general impatience of the overstated liberal principles of human rights and social justice, the Washingtonpost reads.

Modi, a man with few close friends, sleeps just three and half hours a night, admits of being a workaholic and his only pastimes is an early-morning spell of yoga. The article takes a look into his office ambience and says Modi demands a similar dedication from his colleagues and the other bureaucrats who work on tight deadlines. It portrays a quite unusual and a radically different way of working as even his cabinet ministers keeps him updated about their day-to-day schedules.

His policies, often harshly criticized as pro-industry and anti-people by his critics, had made sure that every village in the state is served by a paved road and has a reliable supply of electricity and drinking water, claims the report. With aggressive investment in irrigation, Gujarat saw a great leap in agricultural sector.

It’s there Narendra Modi came to be known as a man who can get things done and that reputation made him the favorite to become India’s next prime minister. He outstripped Rahul Gandhi to be voted favorite for the top job in a recent survey by India Today magazine with 24 percent opting Modi to be their desired PM while the Gandhi scion scored just 17 percent.

If the public sentiments grow stronger for Modi and if he climb’s the Prime Minister’s chair, it would be slightly uncomfortable for the United States. US doesn’t permit its diplomats to meet with Modi and Britain wouldn’t deal with him at all while many other countries won’t be worried by his record. “Private conversations with Western diplomats suggest that there is a general desire to rehabilitate Modi,” writes Denyer who also quoted the leaked 2006 cable from U.S. Embassy by WikiLeaks which said, “We believe it would dilute our influence to avoid Modi completely.” The cable also says that waiting until Modi “achieved national stature” to engage with him could be seen as opportunistic.

While it’s not very easy to wash away the stains of his past, his supporters say it is time to move on but his critics still call for his head saying that the systematic nature of violence makes this impossible. They says his increased efforts to do an image makeover is an attempt to fetch the national job but Modi rubbishes these allegations which he puts on “some vested interest groups” and says, “because I have not done anything wrong, and I am committed to the human cause.” With his Sadbhavana mission, Modi tried to reach out to his people with his development stories and to highlight the fact that there had been no major violence between Hindus and Muslims since 2002.

Earning Less than 8 Lakh in Financial Year 2012-2013? Your Tax will Go Up

The taxpayers have one more reason to get frustrated with the recent budget. The Finance Minister not only kept the tax-saving limit under Section 80C unaltered, but the deduction under Section 80CCF for infrastructure bonds has been removed. This will cut down the total tax savings from 1.2 lakh to 1 lakh which will thrust up the payable tax for individuals.

The deduction was increased two years ago and it has to be extended every year through an amendment. Tax experts had dreaded the worst when the finance minister did not mention it in his budget speech this year. Finance Ministry sources now authenticate that the 20, 000 deductions has been allowed to tumble this year.

It has come clean by now that the change will not burn those with an income of less than 5-6 lakh a year. The taxpayers in this section generally did not invest in infrastructure bonds in a huge way as the tax benefit is lesser for this slab. In a lot of cases, these taxpayers failed to exhaust even their 1 lakh deduction limit under Section 80C.

Though for investors with an income of up to 8 lakh, the scrapping of Section 80CCF means that they will have to pay up to 2,060 more tax next year. It will be more difficult for female taxpayers, but the cruelest gust is held back for senior citizens and very senior citizens. These taxpayers will end up paying almost 4, 120 more as tax. Add the burn of the hike in service tax and you can see a bigger serving of your income going as taxes next year.

Strangely, the elimination of the deduction overlaps with the government's plan to boost the funds to be lifted up by infrastructure lenders in 2012-13. This limit has been doubled to 60, 000 crore. This is the cause, the experts thinks that the deduction should have been allowed to persist. Moreover, it comes at a time when the government wants to raise money for the cash-hungry infrastructure sector. "It is a blow to individual investors as it will actually push up their tax burden. The deduction should be restored immediately,” said DS Rawat, Secretary-General, Assocham.

From Deduction to Exemption

Spending too much time worrying about the scrapped tax deduction is not worth it.  On the contrary, we should think about the exemption you can gain through the tax-free infrastructure bonds. Contrasting to the tax-saving bonds under Section 80CCF, these bonds will not cut your tax outgo. Nevertheless, the interest they earn will be tax-free. The interest earned on Section 80CCF bonds is fully taxable, which decrease the post-tax yield for investors. Besides, the tax has to be paid every year, not on the maturity of the bond.

Alternatively, the income from tax-free infrastructure bonds is completely exempted. What's more, unlike the 20, 000 ceiling in the tax-saving bonds, there is no limit to the amount that a retail investor can park in these bonds. Kamal Rampuria, Senior Vice-President, AUM Capital Market  said, "While the tax-saving bonds under Section 80CCF gave better returns, even tax-free infrastructure bonds are a good option for investors in the highest income bracket.”

A huge one million flower plantation campaign and the decorations along with the security of 18,000 policemen and soldiers added to the costs. During the marriage ceremony Felipe gifted Letizia with 13 gold coins as a part of Spanish tradition.

Quit Your Job and Get Rich

Who doesn’t want to be rich? Each and everyone want to be rich. But the only thing which is required is your smartness and creativity. With that you can earn not only millions, but also your talent will increase. Quitting your job and searching for a new job is not a big deal. But your decision of quitting a monotonous job will be only appreciated once you start thinking of an idea which can make you a rich person. That doesn’t mean only wrong steps or ideas will take you forward to become a millionaire. There are other key factors which helps you to get rich, but that just requires your presence of mind and the hunger to work hard. Here are few main advantages that you can look upon by quitting a job, as reported on Make Money Website.

1. Rich people don’t work for money:

This is considered to be the hardest concept for people to understand. Many people think that those who are rich may be having lot of allowance; in fact it’s actually true and thus you need to work hard to get the allowance that helps you to become rich. But actually this is not the case. The rich people don’t actually work for money, they actually work for properties and later that properties will work for money. So in the same sense, if you are smarter enough, then buy a property that can produce you great income and work on them rather than going to a office to do the same monotonous work.

2. Quitting Your job helps you to bring out your creativity:

It is said that each one of us will be having some or the other talent inside us. But for few reasons we tend to be careless about creativity that is hidden inside us. If you work for a company, you tend to spend most of your hours of the week at your office working for that company. Many times you start working on something which you are not so passionate about. With all your work pressure at office you won’t have any time left to think about a new idea which can work for you as you would be already stressed out working the entire day. So, by quitting your job, it doesn’t mean that you have lost your creativity. Instead you will get more time to explore your inner talent. And for sure most of you will be creative enough to get the ideas which work out to you to become rich. This advantage you would never get if you are recruited somewhere working the whole day.

Other than these two ideas reported in the Make Money Website, there are few other tips reported by Rod on the Success Center website.

3. Save sufficient money, Quit Your Job and earn millions:

If you start saving your money from the very first salary without spending it much, you will get a good opportunity to spend it worthy in your future. So, if you save sufficient money for your future from your current job, in future if at all you plan to quit your job and start your own business, the money that you have saved comes to your help at this point of time. It makes setting up of your own business quite easy as you will be financially stable and you would be free from worrying about the financial support for your business. Once you start your business, try to maintain it in a way so that your business runs actively without any loss. With this method for sure you can earn lots of money.

4. Maximize your social media after you start a business:

Once you start your business you must always maximize your social media contacts because at present your social media has expanded enormously which we can say it’s mainly because of its low cost [or you can also say pretty much free] and you can get a large return on investment. It is absolutely a good way to connect with potential customers and also engage in a good way with present clients which makes it easier for them to trust upon you.

Top Priority of Gen Y ..??? - "Money, Fame and Image"

Gen Me

Gen Y is always an interesting area for researchers and psychologists when it comes to behavioral studies. Yeah, Millennials’ profiles have been reviewed in every perspective. In a workplace, it is important to evaluate the trends of Gen Y employees for associating them to corporate world. Baby Boomers and Gen X were not a big headache for employers, may be because of the less competition in job market. Today, the number of business ventures has increased with a parallel increase of talents in the global job market.  The trend of shifting from companies to companies has also increased in such an extent.

Most studies say Gen Y is very selfish and more ego-centric. The recent study which appeared in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology states that Millenials are more attracted to extrinsic goals which are associated to financial success, appearance, social recognition than intrinsic ones (self-acceptance, affiliation, community feeling).  The research has studied around 10 million young adults from 1966 to 2009 including Baby Boomers, Gen X and Gen Y. They were asked questions based on their involvement in community services, life goals along with asking how important it is for them to make an impact in the political structure, participating in charity services and being financially sound in society to develop a significant way of life. The findings show basic differences in community values and even in personal values while Gen Y gives more priority for ‘money, fame and image’.

Gen Y or Gen Me

More astoundingly, only 35 percent stay informed about political affairs, whereas, majority of the Millenials rated community issues are least important to them. Though, they could volunteer for many causes which give appearance, achievement and recognition.  The personal values and community values narrowed to a ‘me-centric’ system which can reason many personal issues like anxiety, despair, and isolation in a great level.

But the changing values of the Gen Y are more demanded in the society and in the personal level. While the tuning of Gen Y to Gen Me advantages by declining discrimination and developing equality, it makes negative impact with their detachment from community services and with impracticable expectations.

Have you thought of why Gen Y fascinated towards extrinsic goals? Well, more than reviewing Gen Y characteristics, many of the behavioral researchers are not interested to question ‘why’. Do you think, ‘what’ can make a big difference in the life style of Gen Y than ‘why’?

Tips of Warren Buffet's to Get Rich

Warren Buffet is the richest man in the world, with an estimated wealth of $62 billion. He is eminently regarded as one of the most successful investors in the world and is called a ‘Legendary Investor’.

When he began buying stocks in Berkshire Hathaway in 1962, one share cost him around $7.50 dollar. But today the entire scenario is changed and at 81, Buffet is Berkshire’s Chairman and CEO and one share of the company’s class ‘A’ stock worth is close to $119,000. He credits his amazing success to several key strategies. Here are some of Buffett's money-making secrets and tips for you to get rich -

1. Reinvest Your Profits

When you first make profit in the stock market, you may be tempted to spend more in order to gain more. But he says, “Don't.” Instead, he suggests reinvesting the profits. Buffett learnt this lesson much early. In his high school, he and a mate bought a pinball machine to pun in a barbershop. With the money they earned, they bought more machines. When the friends sold the scheme, Buffett used the proceeds to buy stocks so that he could start another small business with the profit. By 26, he'd accumulated $174,000. Even a small sum can turn into great wealth, if it is wisely invested

2. Be Willing To Be Different

Don't let your decisions be based entirely upon what everyone says or does. When Buffett began handling money in 1956 with $100,000, he started with a handful of investors. Back then he was dubbed an oddball. He worked in Omaha, not Wall Street, and he refused to inform his parents where he was investing their money. People foresaw it as a failure but after 14 years, when he closed his partnership; it was worth more than $100 million. Instead of following the crowd, he went out of the box and looked for underrated investments and ended up vastly beating the market average every single year. To Buffett, what everybody is doing is doing is the average. He says ‘to be above average, you need to measure yourself’ which he calls as ‘Inner Scorecard’, that is ‘judging yourself by your own standards and not the world's.’

3. Never Suck Your Thumb

When you need to make money investing or money making decision, gather all information regarding it in advance and solicit a friend or relative to make sure that you stick to your self decided deadline. Buffett prides himself on swiftly making up his mind, taking a decision and executing it. He calls any unnecessary sitting and thinking as “thumb sucking.” Whenever people offered him a business or an investment, he on spot answer was always, “I won't talk unless they bring me a price.”

4. Spell Out the Deal Before You Start

Your bargaining power is always at its greatest before you begin a job. This is a time when you have something good to offer to the other party. Buffett learnt this lesson the hard way as a kid, when his grandfather Ernest hired him to dig out the family grocery store after a blizzard. The boys spent five hours scooping until he could barely straighten his frozen hands. Afterward, his grandfather gave him less than 90 cents. Warren Buffett was shocked to see that he performed such backbreaking work only to earn pennies per hour. Always nail down the particulars of a deal in advance even the deal is with your friends and relatives.

5. Watch Small Expenses

Warren Buffett invests in businesses which are run by managers who are obsessed even over the tiniest of cost. He once acquired a company whose owner counted the sheets in rolls of 500-sheet toilet paper to see if he was being cheated and Buffet really appreciated this. He also admired a friend who painted only the road facing side of his office building. Exercising alertness over every expense can make your profits and your paycheck.

6. Limit What You Borrow

Living mostly on credit cards and loans will not make you rich. Buffett has never borrowed a noteworthy amount, not even to invest or mortgage. He has gotten a number of heart rendering letters from people who thought their borrowing was manageable but became overwhelmed by debt. His advice: “Negotiate with creditors to pay what you can. Then, when you're debt-free, work on saving some money that you can use to invest,” as quoted on his official website.

7. Be Persistent

With obstinacy and resourcefulness, you can even win against a well established competitor. In 1983, Warren Buffett acquired the Nebraska Furniture Mart as he liked the way its founder, Rose Blumkin, did business. She was a Russian immigrant, who built the mart from a pawnshop into the largest furniture store in North America. Her strategy was to undersell the rich ones and she was a merciless delegate who was very good in negotiation. To Warren Buffett, Rose personified the unwavering courage that makes a winner out of an underdog.

8. Know When to Quit

Once, when Warren Buffett was in his teens, went to the racetrack. He gambled on a race and lost. To get back with his funds, he bet on another race. He lost again which actually left him with nothing. He felt sick and wasted nearly a week's earnings. But Buffett learnt from this and never repeated any such mistakes. He says, “Know when to walk away from a loss, and don't let anxiety fool you into trying again.”

9. Assess the Risk

In 1995, an employer of Warren Buffett's son, Howie, was accused by the FBI for price-fixing. Warren Buffett advised Howie to imagine the worst and best case scenarios if he stayed with his company. His son quickly realized the risks of staying in the company anymore and he quit the very next day. Hew says asking yourself “and then what?” can help you much more and will let you see all the possible consequences when you're struggling hard to make a decision.

10. Know What Success Really Means

Despite his wealth, Warren Buffett does not measure success as per the number of dollars. In 2006, he vowed to give almost of his fortune to charities, primarily to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He’s adamant about not funding monuments to himself. He doesn’t want any Warren Buffett buildings or halls. He says, “I know people who have a lot of money and they get testimonial dinners and hospital wings named after them. But the truth is that nobody in the world loves them. When you get to my age, you'll measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do love you. That's the ultimate test of how you've lived your life,” as quoted in his official website.
