How to Become a Microsoft Certified Professional in Pakistan?



certified How to Become a Microsoft Certified Professional in Pakistan?
There’s been a lot of buzz about getting certified by Microsoft in recent days. People earn this certification not only to make their resume look wonderful, but also to learn more about newer technologies introduced by the industry giant: Microsoft.
So the question comes up that what exactly are Microsoft Certifications? How to get one?
What is a Microsoft Certification?
Microsoft offers competitive exams for many of their technologies such as .Net Framework, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 etc. Each of the exams have a specified exam code. Here’s the link to an overview of all the exams offered.
Exams are based on multiple choice questions. Usually each exam consists of 50-60 MCQs and carry 1000 points. The examinee must reach the 700 points mark in order to pass the exam.
How to register/study for an exam?
After choosing your line of action, you can either get trained from an institute or you can do the hard work yourself. There are many institutes in Pakistan which provide trainings for various certifications, and that too from Microsoft Certified Trainers. For Karachiites, CTTC Pvt. Ltd, New Horizons Learning Centre are two of the renowned institutes.
Secondly, you can make use of the largest knowledgebase in the world i.e the internet to get yourself prepared for the exams. You can find most of the course material on the web. Here’s a website http://it-ebooks.info/ from where you can get ebooks related to any of the exams for free.
Moreover, there’s another way to prepare, which is widely criticized and not very much advisable: the Brain Dumps. Dumps are cracked versions of the actual exams, which contain questions which have recently or at some time been a part of the specific exam.
For practising and comprehending the physicality of the actual tests, dumps are the best option but relying on Brain Dumps to pass a certification exam is a huge risk since exams are updated frequently by Microsoft.
These dumps are also available on the internet. http://www.examcollection.com/ is the website where you can find brain dumps.
So next, you need to register for an exam in a Prometric Exam Centre. You can do this by going to this link http://www.register.prometric.com. You can either pay through credit card or you can go directly to the exam centre and pay your fee in cash.
An exam costs around $80-$100 that equals to PKR 8,000-10,000. However, students get a special 50% discount from Microsoft. The school/university identity card is needed to avail the discount.
The result is shown at the end of the exam. The examinee gets a MCP account which caries all their details and exam history and can download PDFs of their certificate. Hardcopies of the certificates are charged with around $9.95 USD for the first certificate and $0.99 USD for each additional certificate up to 6 total certificates.
So this is how you can become a Microsoft Certified Professional. Best of luck!

SpareOne AA Battery-Operated Phone Gets Even Better



Spareone


LAS VEGAS — What if your cellphone was able to hold a charge for 15 years? That's exactly what the makers of the SpareOne phone hope the handset will be able to do.
Designed to be used as an emergency phone rather than your everyday handset, the phone runs on a single AA battery.
You may remember SpareOne from its debut at CES last year. Now the handset is back with a new model, SpareOnePlus, which includes several enhancements to the original handset.
One improvement is a new location-based service that can identify the exact location of the phone.

The phone's location can be viewed through a free smartphone app. So if someone, such as a lost child, does make an emergency call with the phone, that person can be easily located by a friend or family member.
The SpareOnePlus also adds audible numeric feedback, which reads the number dialed and incoming calls aloud — a useful feature for older adults who might have trouble seeing the numbers on the phone.
Much like the original SpareOne, the SpareOnePlus has 15 years of battery life when powered off and stored, and 10 hours of talk time when in use. A flashlight on the top of the device can be used for 24 hours of continuous light.
The phone can be programmed with up to 9 emergency numbers on speed dial, however, it will require a SIM card from a GSM carrier (such as AT&T or T-Mobile) to place those emergency calls. A dedicated 911 dial button can be used without a SIM card.
The SpareOnePlus is available in both black and silver, with the battery screen on both models done in red.

                     

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Is a Powerful Windows 8 Tablet

Lenovo-helix



LAS VEGAS — Windows 8 hybrids that convert between laptops and tablets are often an exercise in compromise: Trade some processing power for battery life, or screen size for features. With the ThinkPad Helix, Lenovo aims to make business users compromise as little as possible, creating a compact, full-featured PC that ditches its keyboard when you need to get your tablet on.
The Helix has an 11.6-inch full HD screen (1,920 x 1,080), and it packs an Intel Core processor (i3, i5 or i7) instead of a mobile chip. You can configure it with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of solid-state storage.
Despite running a Core processor, the Helix is still rated for 10 hours of battery life even though the tablet weighs just 1.8 pounds (that's because the keyboard has some juice, too). Lenovo also claims it's the thinnest (0.8 inch) Windows 8 tablet powered by Intel Core. When attached to the keyboard, the whole thing weighs 3.7 pounds. It also comes with digitizer pen when you need extra precision in your work.
Extra bonus: The Helix's docking port is reversible, meaning you can flip the tablet around 180 degrees so it faces out from the keyboard dock — useful for presentations or when you're in a cramped airplane seat. It has two USB 3.0 ports and a mini-HDMI port.
The Helix also includes NFC wireless tech for quick pairing with your phone or other NFC-equipped devices. LTE connectivity is optional.
Coming in late February, the ThinkPad Helix will start at $1,499.

Lenovo Yoga 11S: Full Windows 8, Fully Bendable

Lenovo-yoga-11s


LAS VEGAS — The original Lenovo Yoga earned high praise for its special hinge that lets the laptop convert into a tablet just by folding the screen over 360 degrees. It came in two sizes, but the smaller model wasn't a full Windows 8 PC since it ran Windows RT. With the Yoga 11S, Lenovo aims to correct that oversight.
The Yoga 11S has an 11.6-inch screen and packs one of Intel's new low-power Core i5 processors, letting it run older apps made to work with previous versions of Windows. It's thin — just 0.7 inches — and it of course has the same hinge design as the whole Yoga line, letting you use it as a laptop, tablet, a stand or even a "tent."
Thanks to its enhanced insides, the Yoga 11S supports the gesture controls that were previously limited to the Yoga 13, letting users wave their hands in front of the webcam to, say, scroll through a list or turn to the next page of a document.
Like the Yoga 13, the 11S also comes in silver or orange finishes. It'll be available in June starting at $799.
