Google announced and launched its flagship street photo mapping project in Bhutan in March 2013. It was inaugurated by Ministry of Information and Communications on March 15, 2013. Many expressed grateful to Google for considering Bhutan in their project. We were indeed excited to see Bhutan's landscape and cultural heritage sites featured online for mass audience around the world.
Until now, we haven't heard any updates on the project. The program, when launched, said it would start from Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan.
I didn't see the Google Street Car here in Thimphu even once plying or taking pictures.
We hope to see this project progress well and see some updates by Google as well.
4 April, 2013 - Bhutan Telecom Ltd., one of the oldest ISPs and Telecommunications service providers in Bhutan announced today that to use its new 4G (Long Term Evolution (LTE) services, clients need new SIM cards for their devices or USB data cards. In its first official announcement on 4G LTE services, it mentioned that the first 4G LTE station will be deployed in Chubachhu (their office premises) and above Motithang Higher Secondary School in Thimphu. These stations will be the first two for 4G LTE in Bhutan where users within 0.5 - 1km will be able access the service.
30 March 2013 - SEACOM, the company that owns the submarine fiber optic cable that links to London via Egypt said they have restored to the full capacity. It affected internet speed with submarine cable cut by 3 drivers in Egypt which the Egypt police forces said they have arrested.
While close to normal internet speeds were restored, yesterday, affected users say more redundancy is required.
The two-day internet slowdown, which began on Wednesday and particularly affected businesses dependent on internet access, was the result of a severed undersea internet cable that links Bhutan to a point of presence in the United Kingdom. It was one of two links that connects Bhutan to the internet. The other is to Hong Kong.
It’s been quite a 24 hours or so for Google, what with Google Reader getting the axe and Android head Andy Rubin stepping aside. Despite that, Google is back to doing one of the things it does best — providing greater access to information in emerging markets — after announced plans to bring Street View to Bhutan, a little-known country near India which will become its 49th market.

Many times, we are frustrated when our computers break down and when we have to re-install our operating system (OS) from scratch. It is even problematic when we have no original media (CD/DVD) containing device drivers for our system.
But with many people trying to help eachother, there are hundreds of websites which offers download of various device drivers. While some provide free download, some website charge nominal fee for the download. Beside third party download sites, the original manufacturers usually provide all up-to-date device drivers from their official outlet.
If we want to upgrade OS to some newer version, the devices might not be supported by the old drivers and we need to find specific drivers compatible to our preferred version of OS.
If Google detects that your site has been compromised, Google will tell you about it in Webmaster Tools (to ensure that you're notified quickly, you can have your Message Center messages forwarded to your email account). If the hacker inserted malware into your site, Google also identify your site as infected in our search results to protect other users.
Whatever your platform or type of infection, Google recommends the following steps:
It's extremely important that you take action to prevent your site from infecting others and to prevent hackers from further abusing the system.
- Take your site down immediately. It's extremely important that you take action to prevent your site from infecting others.

If you have access to your server, Google recommends configuring it to return a 503 status code. Taking your site offline is better than using robots.txt to prevent it from being crawled.
If you have upgraded from previous Windows version to the latest Microsoft's Windows 8, you may not probably be able to get your local server get to work.
When you try to start Apache, you will get error saying the port 80 is being used by other applications. After trying to dig into so many queries, I found that the World Wide Web Publishing in Windows 8 service is using that default server port 80.
Therefore, open your "Services" window and disable that WWW service. After disabling that service, Apache server in local server package like XAMPP or AMPPS works flawlessly.
Some Windows 8 laptops and PCs could end up running more Android apps than ones written for Microsoft's software.
Gadgets built around chips made by AMD will come optimised to run the Android apps.
A collaboration between AMD and software firm Bluestacks lets the devices run the 500,000 apps more usually found on Android phones.

These updates are expected to be simple and backwards compatible.
New Zealand's Prime Minister issued an apology to MegaUpload founder Kim DotCom after it was determined his government illegally spied on DotCom.
Members of New Zealand's government believed the law gave them the right to spy on MegaUpload founder Kim DotCom because he was a foreign national.
They were wrong.
In New Zealand today, Prime Minister John Key apologized to DotCom for the spying conducted against him by the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB).
The United States has accused DotCom of criminal copyright violations and in January New Zealand police raided his home and arrested him. Just ahead of the raid, the GCSB began collecting intelligence against DotCom to see if he posed any danger to the police who would later swoop in by helicopter to arrest him.

Microsoft has a brand-new logo to go with all the brand-spankin' new products it's got coming this fall.
Gone are the wavy edges of the old logo. The new design is one squared-away logo: the colors remain the same, and in the same order, but now they're enclosed in a square box. Equilateral sides, 90-degree angles.
