iSense

iPad has taken the whole world by storm with its charming appeal. But there is a certain section of people who cannot experience using an iPad. The section I am talking about here is the visually impaired. They are devoid from a lot of creations that the world has to offer just because they can’t see. To make blind experience the fun of working on an iPad the iSense concept has been conceived.

The only way a blind person can read is by touching. Though iPad is operated by touch, this serves no good for this section. iSense is like a screen protector which can be wedged on the iPad screen. Special materials have been used to craft iSense, which robotically gives birth to uneven textures after acting in response to the light displayed on the screen. iSense magically converts text into Braille. This can be easily understood and read by the blind.

Don’t get fooled by the name. iSense is not an apple product and is still a concept but when it hits the market, the product will sure be accepted with open arms. Products like iSense, make life of handicapped people blissful and keeps them at power with the modern technology

Remove Your Google Search History

On March 1st, Google will implement its new, unified privacy policy, which will affect data Google has collected on you prior to March 1st as well as data it collects on you in the future. Until now, your Google Web History (your Google searches and sites visited) was cordoned off from Google’s other products. This protection was especially important because search data can reveal particularly sensitive information about you, including facts about your location, interests, age, sexual orientation, religion, health concerns, and more. If you want to keep Google from combining your Web History with the data they have gathered about you in their other products, such as YouTube or Google Plus, you may want to remove all items from your Web History and stop your Web History from being recorded in the future.

Here’s how you can do that:

1. Sign into your Google account.

2. Go to https://www.google.com/history

3. Click “remove all Web History.”

4. Click “ok.”

Note that removing your Web History also pauses it. Web History will remain off until you enable it again.
