An accidental introduction for Indian expatriate Devnath Sasidharan into the world of First Person View (FPV) drone racing later became a passion leading him to represent his country at several international competitions. The Qatar resident otherwise knew little about the emerging sport of drone racing during 2017-18 when he was participating in an event at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay. Devnath Sasidharan and teammates victorious at Asia Drone League. “As a student of National Institute of Technology, Jaipur, I was participating in a multicopter challenge organised by IIT Bombay. I fabricated a design and a 3D printed multicopter platform to attend the competition but could not win. My friend and teammate Nimesh controlled the software,” recalled Sasidharan. “At the same time, there was a drone racing competition going on at another part of Mumbai. Out of curiosity I went there and was fascinated to find drones flying at a very high speed. This was something new for me. This was in 2017 when the hobby was just emerging and I decided to try my hand at it,” he continued. Thereafter, there was no looking back for the young lad as he took part in about 30 FPV drone racing competitions and won most of them. Recently he started working as a robotic software engineer in the research and development department of a leading organisation and has been travelling extensively to various countries but still finds time for his passion of drone racing. FPV drone racing is a sport where participants control drones equipped with cameras while wearing head-mounted displays showing the live stream camera feed from the drones. Similar to full size air racing, the goal is to complete a set course as quickly as possible. In fact, Sasidharan was among the 10 or 12 students selected out of 400 applicants in his college for the robotic club when he started his engineering programme. “I had an interest in aeromodelling and started building plane models -fixed ones and remote controlled models of air links. I built a couple of air models and wanted to get into the next stage and this took me into the world of drones and drone racing and then the Mumbai experience happened,” explained, Sasidharan. With generous cash awards, Sasidharan said he could manage to self-support in each competition. “Winning a national competition - Indian Drone Festival 2.0 held at ITDA Dehradun by Dehradun Drones Institute was a huge moment as this helped me represent India in an Asian competition in Malaysia. Another major competition was for the Asia, Australia Pacific region where I came third. I have won over 20 competitions altogether. I could self-fund for all the competitions because of the prize money I won in all the competitions,” he added.

Wireless earphones have come a long way in the past decade. It has come to the point that it doesn't make sense to use wired earphones for everyday things like answering calls or listening to music. The sound quality of newer wireless earphones is on par with wired earphones. On top of that, they free you from the dreaded coiled up mess of wires. The lack of wires gives a whole new level of opportunity to create stunning fashion statements out of earphones. Women, especially, want more than just good sounding pair of earbuds. They also want something glamorous. Something that can be a part of their identity. It is a high bar that many earbuds’ brands have tried to achieve. Sometimes when earbuds that focus on style, they fail miserably in sound quality. That is, until now. Huawei recently announced the whole new HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick in Qatar. The HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick redefines what wireless earbuds can be with a luxury design and bleeding-edge technology. This result is an earbud that is beautiful to look at and also sounds excellent. Without a doubt, it is going to be a game-changer and would be the ultimate fashion and tech accessory for most women. It packs all the features that you would ever want in wireless earbuds, such as a stunning lipstick design, top open-fit noise cancellation, studio-quality sound, and smart connectivity. Lipstick design speaks of luxury and craftsmanship The new lipstick-inspired design of the HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick is a breath of fresh air. The first thing you would notice about the earbuds is the luxurious squared-off design of the charging case. Mystery black and luxury gold combination work great on the case. It would be hard to tell it apart from a real lipstick tube if you look at it with the lid closed. The red earbuds inside it only add to the beauty. The stainless-steel casing is manually polished to a smooth mirror finish that screams luxury. The edges of the case have been carefully machined to make it smooth to touch. Who would have thought that something as simple as earbuds could look so gorgeous? The case even has a satisfying click to it when you close. The design was developed by Huawei's research centre in Paris, the fashion capital of the world. So, it's no wonder that it looks magnificent. The shape and size of the case make it easy to carry it inside a handbag. It will blend into your outfit and accessories. In fact, the earbuds themselves can be a tech accessory that enhances your style. Open-fit Active Noise Cancellation Traditionally, wireless earbuds with ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) have in-ear designs. That's because achieving noise cancellation is tricky for open-fit earbuds. However, the HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick has achieved a steady level of noise cancellation even with an open-fit design. You get all the benefits of earbuds with noise cancellation without sealing the ears. HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick makes use of dual-microphone noise cancellation. This setup identifies noise from the environment and intelligently cancels the noise from reaching your ears. It will also automatically select the most suitable set of noise cancellation parameters from more than 10 sets of them for users. Studio-quality sound with ultra-light Air-like comfort One question that is on everyone's mind would be, well, how does it sound? The short answer is fantastic. The HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick features 14.3 mm drivers, which can deliver deep bass and clear highs. It has one of the largest drivers in its class. So, you will feel like there are woofers placed around your head. The actual sound that a person hears is also affected by the shape of the ear and the way it is worn. Huawei's Adaptive Ear-Matching technology modifies the sound so that you can listen to your music just the way the artist recorded it. The Bass enhancement engine can add an extra punch to the lower frequencies if that is what you prefer. It is rare for earbuds to handle both lows and highs with such finesse as the HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick. The HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick only weighs 4.1 g. So, it is unlikely to accidentally fall off from the ears. You can probably wear them all day long and feel nothing. Smart connectivity and AI-powered features Thanks to the intelligent audio connection, switching between devices is seamless. You can connect the earbuds to two devices at the same time. This feature works across all major platforms, including Windows, Android, and iOS. Using the HUAWEI AI Life app, you can switch between devices easily. Use your HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick to control how you listen to your music and take calls via simple, intuitive gesture controls that can be used on either earbud. You can access all the basic controls without taking the phone out of your pocket. Taping twice will answer a call or play music. A long press on the earbud will toggle between ANC On and ANC Off or reject calls. Swipe up or down to raise or lower the volume. Apart from these, you can add custom control gestures using the app. The HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick is an amazing combination of design and technology. Praised by many for its sleek design, outstanding Open-fit Active Noise Cancellation, silky smooth sound, and air-like wearing comfort. It is a must have this season. Pricing and availability The HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick edition is available exclusively in Huawei Experience store, Harvey Nichols Doha and Starlink from 16th December at a price of 899 QAR.
More than 400 electrical engineers took part in the Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers of the Philippines (IIEE), Qatar Chapter’s '16th Annual Conference, Technical Seminar and General Membership Meeting', held in a hybrid format recently.

Two young change-makers who are getting a taste of technology in a university setting while still at school are determined to follow their dreams after shining in an international competition for aquatic robotics. Bissan Abdelghany and Mahi Sharma both believe technology is the future. They say that the STEM education they have received as Grade 10 students at Qatar Academy for Science and Technology (QAST) – part of Qatar Foundation’s (QF) Pre-University Education – has helped them to transform ideas into realities, and paved the way for them to become technology innovators rather than consumers. Mahi Sharma As they continue their school studies, they have also become members of the robotics team at QF partner university Texas A&M University at Qatar (Tamuq), which has seen them get an early chance to show their talents and represent Qatar on a global stage. It’s the opportunity to attend and participate in training and workshops within the QF ecosystem that both students say has helped them create a vision for their future. “I became interested in robotics as soon as we started learning about them at QAST,” said Abdelghany. “The school uses visual learning as the primary teaching tool, so we learn based on what we see. And, not only that, but we – as students – also contribute to our own learning by trying to figure out solutions to problems. “This meant that I had the chance not only to work on robotics using technology, but also to build robots – which involved coding and programming.” Although her passion was never engineering-based, Sharma now believes that the training and workshops she had access to at QAST changed her perspective, teaching her how to take an idea from the early stage of planning to execution. “Myself, Bissan and other students were chosen by Dr Mohamed Gharib, a STEM education specialist from Tamuq, to represent Qatar in the International SeaPerch Competition 2021,” she explained. “It is a global challenge for underwater robotics, about how to use resources to develop a ROV – or Remotely Operated Vehicle – for a specific purpose. “Our team created an ROV that records and monitors underwater pipelines to check for rust and cracks to see if any oil spills could happen pre-emptively.” Explaining what it took for the Qatar team to win third place in robotics at the competition, where they were up against 800 participants from around the world, Abdelghany said: “The process that led to this achievement was commitment. “At QAST, there is a subject called innovation, where we come up with new ideas and work on projects. It was this subject that enabled us to participate in and qualify for the SeaPerch challenge; we were then asked by Tamuq to join their robotics team to prepare for the competition – and we went on to win third place.” The Innovation Centre is a special 2-hour daily class that is unique to QAST’s award-winning authentic problem-based learning model called “CRISP’. It is a cyclical process of Challenge, Research, Investigate, Synthesize and Prototype; which helps boost students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills by engaging them in real-life scenarios.

Times have changed and everything is mostly now driven by technology starting from communication to entertainment and even education, that’s why Huawei has launched a unique and safe kids tablet – the HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition with children’s creative and educational needs at the heart of it. Children and parents alike are set to be thrilled by the new tablet that comes with a sleek and minimal design, portable and child-friendly case, Kids corner with rich educational content, eye protection, secure parental assistant and more The HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition come with a Kids Case and stylus pen. The former is a tablet case made of environmentally safe silicone, protecting the tablet.There is also a handle for the kids to easily carry around the tablet, so they can lug it around anywhere they so please. In addition to Kids Painting, Recorder and Camera features, Huawei has also partnered with Azoomee and BabyBus, two of the leading educational developers creating apps for children. The HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition therefore comes with a free three-month membership to Baby Panda World, and a free one-year membership to Azoomee. With a constant stream of updated content, these apps allow children to keep learning, and have fun while doing it. BabyBus is an internet company providing children with creative and educational content. The company has served 500 million families worldwide, and released over 200 apps and 2,500 episodes of animations, as well as over 5,000 audio stories. Their products are available in 12 languages in 160 countries and regions worldwide. Children have sensitive, developing eyes that’s why the HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition was designed with multi-layered eye protection. As expected, blue light filter comes as standard – turning cold tones into warm colour tones to protect the eyes. Utilising the tablet’s gravity sensor and algorithms, children are prompted to change position if they try to lie down whilst using it. A similar notification will appear if a child uses the tablet whilst walking or in a car, which can lead to eye muscle strain. Moreover, if your child is a keen reader? There is an eBook mode that makes the display grayscale to make reading easy on the eye. Kids Corner also comes with a comprehensive suite of parental assistant features for you to fine-tune and manage your children’s digital experience, so you can ensure your children are exploring in a safe way.

What’s more, you can set different limits between the week and weekend to help your kid strike a balance between study and play across different days. Beyond this, you can manage the selected apps you’d like to give your children access to and which photos and videos they can see. The Kid’s Profile logs the kid’s usage time and used apps, so parents can better understand their children’s habits. Packed to the brim with kid-friendly features, the HUAWEI MatePad T Kids Edition is ready to be the ideal companion for kids as they learn and play. Starting October 21st, the tablet will be available for purchase from the Huawei online and retail stores, as well as authorized retailers starting from QAR 499 Customers buying the new MatePad T Kids Edition can also purchase Huawei Care available in Qatar now through authorized sales channels and are eligible for a warranty on their devices.

Are the technical specifications of an electronic device the only thing to consider when making a purchase? Although the specifications of any device have a significant impact on the user experience, they are not the only factor to be considered: In recent years, a growing percentage of shoppers started looking into the after-sale service too. As a result, and in order to stand out in a fiercely competitive market, many brands are shifting their focus to service optimization as Post-Purchase Customer Experience becomes a priority. According to Kantar's BrandZ™ Most Valuable Global Brand Rankings for 2021, HUAWEI had its name listed again with the brand value increased by 29% year-on-year. What is HUAWEI’s secret to consistently ranking high in global brand rankings? Aside from to its cutting-edge technology and products, another factor that might be overlooked is HUAWEI's customer service and especially their after-sale service. HUAWEI has been working hard to improve its customer service professionalism and friendliness all along, and has earned a reputation for providing high-quality services with HUAWEI Care. Customers expect their needs to be met, and they expect the brand to be customer-centric, that’s why HUAWEI Care provides worry-free quality assurance and helps Huawei users extend the product service life, allowing them to keep their devices for a longer period of time. HUAWEI Care is now available in Qatar, which is a fantastic news and customers who purchase HUAWEI Care through authorized sales channels are eligible for a warranty on their devices. HUAWEI Care value-added service can also help users save money on repairs (in some cases, for free), while also ensuring that original parts are used and a quality warranty is provided. Devices will also be repaired by certified technicians at HUAWEI Customer Service Center. HUAWEI Care-Extended Warranty By extending the warranty on devices, HUAWEI Care-Extended Warranty can relieve users of the worry of high maintenance costs. HUAWEI Care –Loss Care for FreeBuds Earbuds are small and easy to use and sometimes they could be misplaced easily. That’s why HUAWEI Care catered a special service if you are concerned about losing or damaging an earbud. When purchasing HUAWEI loss care for FreeBuds service, users get a new single earbud for half the price once a year if your earbud was lost or damaged, and the new earbud comes with a 90-day warranty. HUAWEI Care-Accidental Damage Protection for Watch HUAWEI has considered a number of scenarios in which a watch could be damaged (accidental colliding, dropping, squeezing or liquid ingress). If your watch is damaged, you only need to pay the service fee (which is not waived on service day) and it will be repaired once with original spare parts (the watch strap not included). Customers who are familiar with HUAWEI may be aware of the other premium services previously offered prior to the launch of HUAWEI Care, such as HUAWEI Battery Replacement (as low as 19 QAR), and HUAWEI Service Charge Free Repair (Repair an out-of-warranty device without paying service charge for selected models). Huawei has built a close relationship with its customers over the years, and customers recognize Huawei even more because of that: Its longstanding customer service philosophy has been crystallized into HUAWEI Care, which represents an update to the brand's mutually beneficial relationship with its customers. While Previously Huawei focused on repairing any damage that had already been caused, now preventive maintenance has become priority, with the goal of alleviating customer concerns about device repair. HUAWEI has constantly been growing and evolving, so did its commitment to providing a warm and excellent customer service.

Apple users were urged Tuesday to update their devices after the tech giant announced a fix for a major software flaw that allows the Pegasus spyware to be installed on phones without so much as a click. Cybersecurity experts at the Citizen Lab, a research centre at the University of Toronto, uncovered the flaw while analyzing the phone of a Saudi activist. That person is among tens of thousands believed to have been targeted with the Israeli-made Pegasus software, which according to media reports has been used worldwide to intercept the communications of activists, journalists and even heads of state. Apple said Monday that it had "rapidly" developed a software update after Citizen Lab alerted it to the hole in its iMessage software on September 7. Explosive revelations that governments have spied on people using the hugely invasive software -- which was developed by the NSO Group, a secretive Israeli firm -- have ricocheted around the world since July. Once Pegasus is installed on a phone, it can be used to read a target's messages, look at their photos, track their movements and even switch on their camera -- all without the person knowing. The flaw fixed by Apple on Monday is a so-called "zero-click exploit", meaning that it can be installed on a device without the owner needing to do so much as click a button. But how do such "zero-click" attacks work, and can they be stopped? - What is a 'zero-click' hack? - Spying software has traditionally relied on convincing the targeted person to click on a booby-trapped link or file in order to install itself on their phone, tablet or computer. "Zero-click takes that threat to the next level," said John Scott-Railton, senior researcher at Citizen Lab, the Toronto University cybersecurity centre which discovered the Apple flaw. With a zero-click attack, the software can sneak its way onto the device without the person needing to be fooled into clicking on the link. That grants would-be spies much easier access, not least in an era when people have grown increasingly wary of clicking on suspicious-looking messages. In this case, the malware exploited a hole in Apple's iMessage software to stealthily install Pegasus, a hugely invasive piece of software that essentially turns a phone into a pocket listening device. Allegations that the software has been used by governments worldwide to eavesdrop on human rights activists, business executives and politicians sparked a global scandal in July. - Will I know if my phone is infected? - A simple answer: "No," said Scott-Railton. "There's nothing you can do as a user to protect yourself from infection, and nothing you're going to see when you're infected," he told AFP. That is partly why Apple has taken the threat so seriously, he said. Scott-Railton urged Apple users to install the software update released by the tech giant on Monday. Apple announced a fix for the problem just under a week after Citizen Lab reported it on September 7. A fix of this speed is "a rarity, even for a big company", Scott-Railton said. - Why are messaging apps so vulnerable? - Revelations of Apple's iMessage flaw come after messaging service WhatsApp discovered in 2019 that it, too, had a zero-click vulnerability that was being used to install Pegasus on phones. Scott-Railton said the ubiquity of such apps meant it was not surprising that the NSO Group, the scandal-hit Israeli company behind Pegasus, had used them to sneak onto people's devices. "If you find a phone, there's a good chance that there's a popular messaging app on it," he explained. "Finding a way to infect phones through messaging apps is an easy and quick way to accomplishing what you want." The fact that messaging apps allow people to be identified with their phone numbers, which are easily locatable, also "means that there are a huge target for both nation-states and commercial mercenary hacking operations like NSO," he said. - Can such hacks be stopped? - Vivien Raoul, chief technical officer at French cybersecurity firm Pradeo, said the discovery of the iMessage flaw was "a good start for reducing the ports of entry, but it's unfortunately not enough to stop Pegasus". Malware-makers can simply look for other weaknesses in widely used apps, which inevitably include flaws from time to time due to their complexity, say experts. Google's mobile operating system Android and Apple's iOS regularly "correct a large number of vulnerabilities", Raoul said. NSO, whose recruits include former elite members of Israeli military intelligence, has formidable resources of its own to invest in the hunt for weak spots, while hackers also sell access to them on the dark web.
