Hisense opens R350m SA factory

first_img7 June 2013 Chinese consumer electronics company Hisense officially opened a R350-million electronics factory in Atlantis north of Cape Town on Thursday. Hisense started manufacturing flat-screen televisions and refrigerators at the plant in February, recruiting and training 300 previously unemployed residents from the area. The company said on Thursday that it plans to double the size of the factory over the next few years, and increase its staff complement to 1 000 people, with a view to extending production to washing machines, air conditioning units and, possibly, wine coolers and coffee machines. The Atlantis factory – one of only five established by the company outside of China – will produce its goods for local consumption to begin with, but will ultimately export into Africa. Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel, speaking at Thursday’s opening, said that, to the people of Atlantis, “this factory brings hope that the burden of poverty and unemployment that ravaged the people of this area for years can be reversed. “Nationally, it helps us to realise our vision of re-industrialising the South African economy and strengthening the manufacturing sector.” Patel noted that, as South Africa ramped up local production, the country had reduced its imports of televisions by 29% year-on-year in 2012, while increasing its exports of televisions by 77%. Between 2008 and 2012, he said, the country’s trade deficit in televisions had improved from US$334-million to $172-million. “South Africa has, at the same time, increased its exports of televisions to the rest of Africa, with nine of our top 10 destinations being African countries, and almost 90% of our exports going to other African countries,” he said. “This is the result of a dedicated effort by the government to revive the local electronics sector.” Hisense was awarded a R26.8-million cash grant from the Department of Trade and Industry’s Manufacturing Investment Programme, while the Industrial Development Corporation has signed a memorandum of understanding with Hisense and the China-Africa Development Fund encompassing finance for the company’s planned expansion.

Hurray! Microsoft Surface Chief Panos Panay Provides Real Answers

first_imgStung by criticism that his Surface with Windows 8 Pro tablet can’t measure up in terms of battery life, Microsoft’s Surface chief responded that the company made sacrifices to ensure the highest performance possible.And members of the team led by Panos Panay, Microsoft’s general manager in charge of Surface, implied that a set of mysterious pins on the device could be used for future Touch Covers with integrated charging capabilities.In a refreshing, candid give-and-take, Panay and his team participated in the second “Ask Me Anything” round of questions on Reddit, where the general public was free to ask about Linux support (?!), suggest a bump in RAM to 8GB, and ask about future docking stations. But the three main issues boiled down toThe Surface Pro’s reportedly poor battery life, on the order of four to six hours.The fact that less than half of the Surface Pro’s disk capacity is actually available to store user data.A pesky screen resolution issue.To their credit, both points were later called out at the top of the post, a refreshingly direct response from normally stay-on-message Microsoft executives.Hate The Surface Pro’s Battery Life? Buy Windows RTOn the battery life issue, Panay claimed that it was a result of maximizing performance:“The product was designed to take full advantage of Windows 8 coupled with the Ivy Bridge Core processor from Intel. We created a product that did not compromise speed, performance in any way,” Panay and his team responded.“With that, we wanted to be the best notebook/laptop product in its class, but still deliver you the tablet form factor,” the team added. “This product is optimized in every way to take advantage of the full third-generation Core i5 it runs, yet give the best battery life. If you compare it to say a MacBook Air, you will quickly see that pound-for-pound in battery size vs. battery life, you will find optimizations that puts Surface best in its class. That said, we picked a smaller battery to be sure we were able to give you the same performance and to keep it thin. This kept the weight under 2lbs, and still kept it thin enough to take advantage of our great Windows work for inking and give you a great inking experience (like pressure-sensitive inking, ability to do kanji, great sketching). While these tradeoffs are challenges as much as they are opportunities, we think given the performance and experience you will be getting, it is an exciting product.”What reviewers found is that if you want long battery life, turn to the Surface RT; one of the reviewers that put both tablets through its paces, Anand Lal Shimpi, found that the Surface RT lasted 9 hours while Web browsing. Compared to the Surface Pro, the RT also lasted twice as long under intensive video testing, 10.5 hours vs. 5 hours.And that’s the way Microsoft is now positioning the two Surface options: “If you’re looking for an all-day battery and an entertainment-first experience with the ability to still get some work done – Surface RT is for you,” the team wrote. “If you want a powerful PC that gets work done with the flexibility of a tablet, then Surface Pro is your device.”The Mystery PinsRedditors also noticed the additional pins on the Surface Pro, which Microsoft so far has left unexplained. “Does Microsoft have any plans for an external battery or for a thicker keyboard cover that has an extra battery?” “irishchug” wanted to know.“That would require extending the design of the accessory spine to include some way to transfer higher current between the peripheral and the main battery. Which we did…” the team responded.They also referred to the pins as the “accessory spine.”Poor Storage? SorryAs for the storage issue, Microsoft’s Marc Descamp explained that the low storage space was simply a design choice, complicated by the fact that Microsoft wanted to add a recovery disk, too. And the situation may be improving: “Initial reports out regarding available disk space were conservative (eg. 23GB available on 64GB and 83GB available on the 128GB system), however our final production units are coming in with ~6-7GB additional free space,” Descamp wrote. Of course, an SD card slot is also included, and users can  connect an external hard drive via the USB 3 port. Since the case is sealed, however, the internal SSD storage cannot be upgraded.Resolution Fix ComingMicrosoft said it is also preparing to address the other nagging issue with the Surface Pro, the screen resolution and scaling, which can make some apps looks blurry and out of focus. Microsoft said it was working on a fix, and suggested a labyrinthine workaround while users wait.As a journalist, I can’t help but wonder why Microsoft executives won’t answer these questions when reporters and analysts ask them, but come up with relatively honest, straightforward answers when queried by the general public. Nevertheless, we now have some concrete explanations of Microsoft’s design choices, and hints as to future products.That’s a win-win for all concerned.

Sanatan Sanstha protests calls for ban

first_imgA day after the Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (ANiS) launched the ‘Jawab Do’ campaign on the fifth anniversary of Dr. Narendra Dabholkar’s murder, a number of fringe right-wing outfits under the umbrella of the Sanatan Sanshtha staged a march in the old part of the city, protesting against calls for outlawing the outfit.The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) and the Veer Savarkar Yuva Sena, among others, participated in the two-hour march, which began at the Bajirao Road area and ended at the Kasba Peth area.Targeting the late Dr. Dabholkar’s anti-superstition outfit, the demonstrators carried placards which read ‘Jawab Do ANiS’ and ‘We are all Hindus’. “We will not let the government proscribe us at any cost. The agencies are persecuting our members, who are innocent. We are a legal outfit and have always abided by the Constitution,” said Parag Gokhale of the HJS.On the arrest of Sanatan sympathiser and terror suspect Vaibhav Raut, Mr. Gokhale said a large number of people attend programmes hosted by the Sanstha, and it doesn’t mean they were activists of the organisation. The repeated allegations against them was a deliberate ploy to malign the organisation, Mr. Gokhale said.Sanstha members further denied allegations that the outfit had any connection with the murders of rationalist Dr. Narendra Dabholkar, Communist leader and writer Govind Pansare, scholar M.M. Kalburgi and journalist Gauri Lankesh.“Without concrete evidence, the then chief minister Prithviraj Chavan put the blame on the Sanatan Sanstha for Dr. Dabholkar’s death. If he had not acted so rashly, then perhaps the real killers would have been found today,” said Mr. Gokhale. In 2011, when the Congress-led UPA government was in power at the Centre, Mr. Chavan, as the Chief Minister, had sought for a ban on the Sanstha under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act on grounds that it was ‘divisive’ and ‘violent’.On Monday, Mr. Chavan, along with senior Congress leader Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil, had reiterated his call for a ban on the Goa-based outfit while alleging that the real masterminds of the crimes were being protected.At the same time, Mr. Chavan questioned the timing of arrests (of Raut, Sharad Kalaskar, Sudhanwa Gondhalekar and Sachin Andure) made by the probing agencies just before August 20 on Dr. Dabholkar’s fifth death anniversary, pointing out sudden changes in the investigation narrative. “Each time, new names are coming up in the investigation, giving it a completely new direction,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgRashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) president Upendra Kushwaha on Saturday said he would wait till November 30 for a final decision on seat-sharing.Mr. Kushwaha said he would not make any move from his side to approach any BJP leader to discuss the issue of seat-sharing, except Prime Minister Narendra Modi.“Once I would like to meet the Prime Minister and apprise him about everything…it was because of him I’d come into the NDA”, Mr Kushwaha told journalists after the party’s executive meeting in Patna.At the meeting, his party leaders “rejected” the seats offered to them by the BJP for 2019 Lok Sabha election.However, he refused to disclose the number of seats offered to his party by the BJP.“Until November 30, I’ll not disclose anything on the seat-sharing issue…it was an internal issue”, he said.Slams Nitish KumarMr. Kushwaha slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his party leaders for making efforts to divide the RLSP. “Such an act is deplorable and condemnable…Nitish Kumar should refrain from such activities.” There was a “group of NDA leaders in Bihar who doesn’t like to see Narendra Modi as PM again,” he alleged.Mr Kushwaha said the law and order situation in the State had “worsened”. “Everyday murders, kidnappings and rape incidents are taking place in the State…several of my party leaders too have been killed but it seems there is no one to take notice of it”, he charged.At the meeting, the RLSP also made proposals to set off a campaign “siksha mein sudhar, jan jan ka adhikar (reform in education, right of everyone) from November 28 at every district headquarter. “Party will also organize unch-neech virodh diwas (anti upper and lower caste day) from November 28”, he said.2 party MLAs absent at meetingParty MLAs Lallan Paswan and Sudhanshu Shekhar were absent at the meeting. However, party MP Ram Kumar Sharma was present.Earlier, both the RLSP legislators had a meeting with ruling party JD(U) leader Prashant Kishor and Mr. Nitish Kumar.The buzz in political corridors is that both are likely to join the JD(U) with a ministerial berth to Sudhanshu Shekhar and a parliamentary ticket to Lallan Paswan from Sasaram.“I’m also hearing all these things from media…but yes, both my party MLAs were absent from the party meeting today”, said Mr. Kushwaha.last_img read more
