In the last decade, the country’s startup sector has received more than USD 750 million in foreign investment.

There are around 22,500 startups in the country right now.

The government funds startups through the Startup Bangladesh Limited Idea Project and the Bangabandhu Innovation Grant (BIG).

Zunaid Ahmed Palak, State Minister for Information and Communication Technology, said this on Wednesday while speaking as the chief guest at the BCC auditorium of ICT Tower in Agargaon during the second phase of Investment Assistance for Startups under the ‘Hundred Years of Hope’ campaign organized by ICT Department Startup Bangladesh Limited.

Md. Abdul Mannan, Executive Director of the Bangladesh Computer Council, Mostafa Osman Turan, President of the Bangladesh Association of Call Center and Outsourcing Wahid Sharif, and Sami Ahmed, Managing Director of Startup Bangladesh Ltd, all spoke at the event.

The state minister stated that the ICT department has launched the ‘Hundreds of Years of Hope’ project to honor the birth centenary of Bangladesh’s Father of the Nation, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, as well as the country’s golden jubilee. The project seeks to invest Tk 100 crore in 50 firms in order to foster entrepreneurship and create jobs in Bangladesh.

In the second phase, an investment agreement was struck to give cash support of Tk 17 crore to eight businesses.

The state minister stated that the ‘Hundred Years of Hope’ campaign will propel Bangladesh forward in the global economy by creating a national entrepreneurial platform and speeding up the deployment of new inventions.

“As a result, any possible project would not be stopped, and the financial problem associated with its implementation would be addressed, and new jobs would be generated,” he added.

“Specialized labs, the Fourth Industrial Revolution Center, the Joy Digital Service Center, 300 Schools of the Future, and the Sheikh Hasina Institute of Frontier Technology are being established in 494 Upazilas and 53 universities to handle the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” he stated.

In the future, he hopes that young entrepreneurs would develop a knowledge-based, economically viable, and inventive Bangladesh.

On behalf of their various organizations, Startup Bangladesh Managing Director Sami Ahmed and CEOs of the respective firms signed the agreement as investors. Hello Task, 10 Minutes School, Eye Farmer, Frontier Nutrition, Loop, Mechanical, Sawtell, and Truck are the organizations in question. Seven firms were allocated Tk 17 crore in the first phase.

Russia will Ban Instagram on March

Instagram Parental Feature

Russia’s communications agency, Roskomnadzor, has declared that it will also block Instagram, just a week after banning Facebook. While the government previously blamed the ban on Facebook on “discrimination against Russian media,” this time it claims it’s due to a decision by parent company Meta instructing moderators to allow posts calling for violence against Russian soldiers if they come from specific countries, including Ukraine.

“This decision will shut 80 million in Russia off from one another, and from the rest of the globe,” Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri stated in a tweet. “80 percent of people in Russia follow an Instagram account outside their country.” This is incorrect.”

The following is a Google translation of the agency’s statement:

As you may be aware, Meta Platforms Inc. made an unusual decision on March 11 by permitting content containing incitement for violence against Russian nationals to be posted on its social media platforms Facebook and Instagram.

Messages encouraging and inspiring violent crimes against Russians are circulating on the Instagram social network, prompting the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office to propose that Roskomnadzor restrict access to the platform.

Because it will take time for active Instagram users to transfer their photo and video materials to other social networks and notify their contacts and subscribers, Roskomnadzor decided to finish the procedure for imposing restrictions on Instagram access at 00:00 on March 14, giving users an extra 48 hours of grace.

The government’s decision ignores the fact that Russian oligarchs have used Instagram to express their opposition to the invasion. This includes the children of oligarchs who have grown into social media influencers with large followings, such as Sofia Abramovich, daughter of billionaire Roman Abramovich, who reportedly shared a message saying, “the biggest and most successful lie of Kremlin propaganda is that most Russians stand with Putin.” One of the most prominent dissidents is banker Oleg Tinkov, who was once Russia’s 15th wealthiest person, with a message that concluded, “We are against this war!”

In terms of Meta’s “unique” content filtering decision, Vice reported last summer that the country’s southwest region of Khuzestan made a similar choice to temporarily allow content including “death to Khamenei” demands and shouting during a period of protests.

The announcement of the ban comes just days after Meta announced plans for Instagram to label state media outlets and that it is “hiding information about people’s followers, who they’re following, and people who are following each other for private accounts based in these two countries” in Russia and Ukraine.

The ban will not take effect until March 14th, according to Russian state-run news outlet RIA Novosti, and it will not apply to WhatsApp, which is also owned by Meta. Russian government officials threatened a ban earlier in the day, asking that Meta confirm or dispute the information initially published by Reuters.

“As a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we have temporarily made exemptions for forms of political expression that would typically breach our standards like aggressive rhetoric such as ‘death to the Russian invaders,'” Meta spokesperson Andy Stone stated last night. We will not tolerate credible threats of violence against Russian civilians.”

The company’s rules, according to Meta’s president of global relations Nick Clegg, are “centred on defending people’s right to speech as an expression of self-defense in response to a military invasion of their nation.” “We would now be eliminating content from ordinary Ukrainians expressing their opposition and indignation” to the Russian invasion, Clegg said, if Meta/Instagram followed its current practises without change. “This would rightly be considered as unacceptable.”

The temporary policy, according to Clegg, will only apply within Ukraine. “We have no beef with the Russian people,” he stated, adding that “on our platform, we will not accept Russophobia or any other type of discrimination, harassment, or violence directed against Russians.”

Quantum Computing in Space: Microsoft and NASA Team Up

Microsoft and NASA Partnership

Quantum computing breakthroughs are analogous to the space race in that they involve massive investments by large corporations in futuristic technologies that will take humanity to the next level.

Today, NASA and Microsoft are taking things a step further with the cooperation that will ideally make it easier for NASA to coordinate its spacecraft, which is a difficult task on its own. What is the ultimate goal? Quantum technology is reducing the time it takes to transfer instructions from hours to minutes.

“Managing communications with the expanding number of spacecraft is getting increasingly complicated as NASA launches more frequent and complex missions into space,” Microsoft writes in a blog post. “NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has turned to Azure Quantum to investigate ways to interact with spacecraft exploring our solar system and beyond in a more efficient manner.”

Quantum rules the waves

There are even indicators of early success. Microsoft has recorded schedule runtimes of 16 minutes during testing, significantly less than the two or more hours NASA has historically taken. NASA would be able to develop several schedules with a wider reach, allowing the organization to become more agile.

Microsoft hasn’t revealed any other information regarding the relationship, but we’re sure we’ll learn more as time goes on and quantum technology is applied to one of space travel’s lesser-known bottlenecks.

Quantum technology differs from the conventional binary system, in which inputs can be either one or zero, by introducing states between them and allowing them to be both at the same time.

As the following example demonstrates, computation occurs much more swiftly, yet quantum computing research is still in its early stages. It’s similar to when PCs only had 32KB of RAM compared to operating a system with 256GB, both in terms of future potential and in contrast to current processing power.

Microsoft, IBM, Amazon, Microsoft, the United States, China, and a slew of other startups, countries, and large corporations are currently investigating the topic in order to gain a competitive advantage in the next wave of computing.

iPhones will soon Accept Contactless Payments

iPhone Contactless Payment

According to people familiar with the topic, Apple Inc. is working on a new service that will allow small companies to accept payments directly on their iPhones without the need for any additional gear.

Since approximately 2020, when it paid around $100 million for a Canadian firm called Mobeewave, which developed technology for smartphones to accept payments with the tap of a credit card, the business has been working on the new feature. The technology will most likely use on the iPhone’s near-field communications (NFC) chip, which is already in use for Apple Pay.

Today, merchants must employ payment terminals that plug into the phone or communicate with it over Bluetooth in order to accept payments on an iPhone. Instead, the new feature would turn the iPhone into a payment terminal, allowing users like food trucks and hairstylists to receive purchases by tapping a credit card or another iPhone onto the device’s back.

Payments companies that rely on Apple’s iPhones to enable sales, such as Block Inc.’s Square, which dominates the industry, may be impacted by the decision. Square may continue to accept payments via Apple devices without having to worry about providing its own hardware if Apple allows any app to use the new technology. Apple might directly compete with Square if it forces shops to adopt Apple Pay or its own payment processing system. A request for comment from a Block spokesman was not immediately returned.

As the market started in New York on Thursday, Block’s stock was down 3.4 percent, while Apple was up 2.1 percent.

Although the team working on the functionality has been working within Apple’s payments business since being moved over from Mobeewave, it’s unclear whether the payment acceptance option will be marketed as part of Apple Pay. It’s also unclear whether Apple would cooperate with an existing payment network or go along with the feature.

According to the sources, Apple may begin rolling out the feature via a software update in the coming months. In the near future, Apple is scheduled to release the first beta version of iOS 15.4, with a final release for consumers expected in the spring. A spokesperson at Apple declined to comment.

According to Bloomberg News, Apple aims to release an iPhone SE and iPad Air with 5G as early as March or April, as well as a new Mac with an Apple proprietary chip.

In recent years, Apple has increased its focus on payments, establishing the Apple Card in the United States in 2019 and launching Apple product installment plans on the credit card later that year. Bloomberg News reported last year that Apple also offers the Apple Cash card for digital peer-to-peer payments and is working on a solution for Apple Pay that would allow users to buy products now and pay for them later in installments.

Mobeewave’s payment acceptance technology will not be exclusive to the iPhone. In 2019, Samsung, which sponsored the firm before it was sold to Apple, added credit card acceptance to its devices with a simple tap.

Google Working on Affordable Chromecast With Google TV With Remote Control

Google TV With Remote Control

According to reports, Google is working on a new Chromecast with Google TV to replace the company’s outdated third-generation Chromecast, which was debuted in 2018. The forthcoming Chromecast is expected to have a maximum resolution of 1080p, as well as the Google TV interface and remote control. The forthcoming Chromecast with Google TV is expected to include AV1 hardware decoding and be less expensive than the standard Chromecast with Google TV, which supports 4K video.

According to Protocol, Google is working on a new Chromecast model that will enable 1080p resolution. Users will be able to run native apps on the Chromecast to cast to their TV, just as prior Chromecast with Google TV models launched by the firm. The device is also believed to have native AVI hardware decoding, which isn’t available on the company’s existing Chromecast with Google TV that supports 4K video. According to the rumor, the device’s final name could be “Chromecast HD with Google TV.”

Boreal is the codename for Google’s next Chromecast with Google TV, which will include an Amlogic S805X2 CPU and a Mali-G31 GPU, as well as 2GB of RAM. According to the source, the device’s hardware will allow Google to deliver AVI native decoding as well as a 60fps framerate. It’s worth mentioning that the company’s 1080p resolution Chromecast 3, which was released in 2018, lacks native app or remote control compatibility.

The forthcoming Chromecast with Google TV is expected to be less expensive than the $50 Chromecast with Google TV that supports 4K. (roughly Rs. 3,700). According to the article, the streaming device will compete with similar-priced devices from Roku and Amazon. Google, on the other hand, has yet to reveal any specifics about the impending Chromecast with Google TV. Google I/O in May or the company’s hardware event in October could be the venues for the announcement of the forthcoming Chromecast. According to the source, the forthcoming Chromecast device could be sold in North America first, with subsequent releases in other nations such as India.

Netflix’s Lack of Success in India ‘frustrating’, Cofounder Reed Hastings Says

Netflix India (1)

In an investor call on Thursday, Netflix co-founder, president, and co-CEO Reed Hastings stated that the firm’s lack of success in India is “frustrating,” but that the company is “absolutely pushing in there.”

The global streaming giant, based in Los Gatos, California, saw its stock plummet after announcing that it expects to add only 2.5 million new news subscribers in the current quarter, the lowest for the first quarter in nearly a decade, added 2.6 million new paying subscribers in the Asia Pacific region in the last quarter (up from 2 million in the same quarter last fiscal), with strong growth in both Japan and India.

While Netflix has never disclosed the number of Indian members, market estimates place the figure between 4.3 million and 4.5 million, a fraction of rivals Disney+Hotstar (almost 36 million) and Amazon Prime Video (nearly 4.5 million) (over 17 million).

Netflix cut its prices in India in December to make the service more accessible to a larger range of customers. However, many experts feel that the move will only increase the number of users who were already using the service due to account sharing.

Netflix’s chief operational and product officer, Greg Peters, said during the webcast on Thursday that the price shift is the result of a series of actions the firm has been conducting in India over the years. “We’ve been operating there and learning more about Indian consumers’ tastes, et cetera,” Peters explained, “and that’s widening the service offering across many, many different dimensions.” “We decided it was the perfect time to lower our prices there, to make it more accessible to everyone… we’re looking at it from the perspective of long-term revenue maximization.”

While Netflix expects a reduction in average income per member as a result of the price cuts, Peters believes the company will make up for it by adding more subscribers.

“I believe it is still too early to consider India. And it takes a couple of months to get a pretty clean read on some of these impacts, such as retention,” he said. “However, the early data we’re seeing strongly suggests that the lens of revenue maximization through these modifications is a positive read.”

Hastings previously stated that India’s pay-TV pricing, which is roughly $3 per month per household, is unusual. “Rarely different pricing from the rest of the globe,” he continued, “which has an impact on consumer expectations.”

When asked if Netflix will consider right-sizing content spend or switching to an ad-supported model, he indicated it will be a long time before the firm makes any significant changes to its business model.

“For the first couple of years in Brazil, we found it to be really difficult. We feared we’d never make a profit. I know we’ve got a terrific company… The good news is that we’ve got the flywheel turning in every other significant market. Why haven’t we been as successful in India is something that annoys us, but we’re definitely leaning in there “According to Hastings.

After two years, Netflix, the first global OTT provider to launch in India in 2016, began to establish staff and invest in original content.

Hastings announced in 2018 that the firm would spend Rs 2,000 crore on content in India over the next two years, more than the combined programming budgets of the top four Hindi general entertainment networks.

Many of the series and films, on the other hand, have yet to draw huge audiences.

Netflix’s strategy and approach of “throwing money at every problem,” according to experts, is to blame.

“One of the most serious challenges with Netflix in India is that it is unclear which market they are targeting. Is paying Rs 85 crore for a ‘Sooryavanshi’ reasonable? “They’ve always had a thing for Bollywood, and the regional plan is too little, too late,” a top executive at a competitor service said.

According to a senior executive who left Netflix last year, the brand is very strong, but they need to figure out if they want to focus on keeping and growing engagement from existing users or on attracting new subscribers.

“It’s only the first in India,” he explained. “Also, when I worked at Netflix, it looked like we had all forgotten about the return on investment (return on investments). We were all given an unlimited budget to spend on content, marketing, and PR, among other things. There was no dispute about who was responsible “he stated

Netflix Group CFO Spencer Neumann noted on the investor call that while the company has a “terrific business” and a “terrific business model” that scales effectively, it is also extremely difficult in every country.

“Every country has a different adoption curve, and we talk about product-market fit, but even if everyone enjoys movies, television, and games, it’s a really specialized situation. Around the world, entertainment is still largely regional. So it’s both global and local, and we have to figure out which is which “In response to a question on India, he stated.

Microsoft to Buy Activision Blizzard in All Cash Transaction

Microsoft Activision Blizzard

Microsoft announced on Tuesday that it would buy videogame publisher Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion (approximately Rs. 512,362 crores) in an all-cash deal, or $95 per share, including Activision Blizzard’s net cash. When the deal is complete, the Redmond-based software giant will be the world’s third-largest gaming company by revenue, behind Tencent and Sony.

According to Microsoft, the purchase is subject to usual closing conditions, regulatory approval, and Activision Blizzard shareholder approval. The transaction is set to finalize in the fiscal year 2023. Activision Blizzard and Microsoft Gaming will continue to operate independently until the acquisition is completed.

Microsoft’s offer of $95 per share is a 45 percent premium over Activision’s Friday closing price. Before being delayed for news, Activision’s stock was up over 38% at $65.39. Microsoft’s Game Pass, which already has over 25 million customers, will benefit from the deal. Activision Blizzard games will be included in the game pass, according to the business.

During the epidemic, demand for video games has increased as consumers who are stranded at home play more games to keep themselves engaged. Activision’s collection of titles, including Call of Duty and Overwatch, provides Microsoft’s Xbox a leg up over Sony’s PlayStation, which has had a more consistent supply of exclusive games for years.

Take-Two Interactive Software, a rival videogame publisher, said last week that it will buy FarmVille developer Zynga for $11 billion in cash and stock, marking one of the largest industry-wide acquisitions of all time.

Bobby Kotick will remain CEO of Activision Blizzard, according to Microsoft, and he and his team “will keep their emphasis on driving efforts to further develop the company’s culture and accelerate business growth.” The Activision Blizzard business will report to Phil Spencer, Microsoft Gaming’s CEO after the transaction is completed.

“Gaming is the most dynamic and exciting area in entertainment across all platforms today,” Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella said in a statement. “Gaming will play a major role in the development of metaverse platforms.” We’re putting a lot of money into world-class content, community, and cloud to usher in a new era of gaming that prioritizes players and creators and makes gaming safe, inclusive, and accessible to everyone.”

“Players all across the world enjoy Activision Blizzard games, and we believe the creative teams are working on their best work yet,” stated Phil Spencer, Microsoft Gaming’s CEO. “Together, we will create a future in which people can play their favorite games almost everywhere.”

“Our extremely talented teams have created some of the most successful games for more than 30 years,” stated Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. “The combination of Activision Blizzard’s world-class talent and incredible franchises, as well as Microsoft’s technology, distribution, talent access, ambitious vision, and shared dedication to gaming and inclusivity, will help ensure our continued success in an increasingly competitive sector.”

10 Things To Know For Video Editing

Video Editing

We live in the world of multimedia and online videos. Video content is the future! And vlogging has become a real thing. The setting of a good video is as important as the quality of your product or service. It’s the first impression that represents your brand. There are many tips and tricks you can use to improve your work. Video editors are always popular and in-demand people around the world, who contribute with passion and creativity to their project. There are tons of people creating videos, some of them just for fun, and others for their own small business which helps them to get more attention on the web.

Before shooting a video you need to think of editing. It will help you to shoot your video chronologically. If there is no idea of editing or a story in your mind, then your series of videos will not be fruitful. And never make a phrase that “We’ll fix that later” this phrase will only harm your production because in certain cases you can’t fix it in post-production. Now let deep drive and learn some tips that will help you edit your videos quickly, efficiently, and easily:

1. Choose the right software

It is important to choose the right software for editing your videos. There are many free or paid options available online, so try them all out before making any decision. The one you choose should be easy to use and should provide you with enough features. You should also try InVideo, which is a video editor website that helps creators to create awesome video content in less than 10 minutes with ready-to-use 5000+ templates.

Don’t just blindly trust any software that is available in the market, make your proper research and figure out what works best for you and your video editing technique

2. Good hardware configuration

You’ll need a powerful enough setup to edit smoothly, or you’ll be in a lot of frustration. Processor speed and storage are the most essential considerations, but you’ll also need a good graphics card. You’ll need at least 8 GB of RAM, and an SSD is a good idea. This will allow you to locate your data extremely fast, which is particularly important while editing videos.

3. Take Control of Your Timeline

When you first open up your video editing software, the screen will look a little overwhelming. There are a lot of buttons and options, but don’t worry – it isn’t as bad as it looks. All you need to do is take control of the timeline. The timeline is the bar at the bottom of your screen that displays your videos and pictures in chronological order. You can then play them back on your video by clicking on the play button or by using the space bar on your keyboard.

4. Edit videos in short bursts

Video editing becomes easier if you edit your videos in short bursts instead of trying to do it all in one sitting. If your computer breaks down, you won’t lose all your work because it will be saved on your hard drive periodically throughout the process.

5. Find a good color balance

The human eye is sensitive to subtle differences in color and hue. You can use this to your advantage when editing a video. The secret is to get everything as close to the same color balance as possible so that viewers don’t have to squint their eyes. Making sure the colors are balanced will let you create an easier-to-watch video.

6. Don’t make it boring!

Please note that you’re not only an editor but also a storyteller! Editing is more than just editing video; it’s an opportunity to take your audience on an incredible journey. There’s a deeper tale being told whether you’re editing a complicated narrative film or simply putting together a corporate video.

7. Make use of keyboard shortcuts

The frequency with which a video manager uses the keyboard is perhaps the simplest way to distinguish between an excellent and a novice video manager. Video editors who have been in the industry for a long time understand how vital those few seconds may be over time. So, if you want to save time when working on video editing tasks, you should learn how to use such keyboard shortcuts. Fortunately, there are many keyboard shortcut tools available.

8. Choose appropriate music

Don’t just concentrate on the images; music also impacts how your video turns out. For example, if you’re making a drama film, you might want to select the correct music track to trigger specific emotions from your audience.

9. Eliminating Distraction:

Removing distractions from your video helps concentrate your audience to focus on the story which you want to show to them.

10. Don’t forget to back up your work!

This is the most critical video editing tip and trick since it doesn’t matter how perfectly edited your work is. If you lose it, then there is no other option to get it back. Backups are normally kept on the same drive as your main project, so if that drive fails, they won’t help.

Conclusion

To edit a video you don’t need to be a video editing guru to create professional-quality videos. You don’t even need professional-grade, high-end equipment to get the job done. To be honest, you can shoot high-quality videos with simply your smartphone. How? Well, with the appropriate editing, anything is possible. All you have to do is follow the video editing guidelines for beginners and prepare to dazzle others with your stunning masterpieces.

Donald Trump’s Social Platform Truth Launch at Feb. 21

Truth Social Media

According to a listing on the Apple App Store, Donald Trump’s social media platform is set to launch on February 21.
On the iOS App Store, a pre-order page for Truth Social has been surreptitiously modified to mention an “anticipated Feb. 21, 2022” release date. Trump Media & Technology Group, the platform’s creator, did not reply to a request for comment. Reuters, citing an unnamed source acquainted with the plans for Truth Social, claims that the Feb. 21 date is legitimate. Given that February 21 is Presidents Day, a launch on that day would be appropriate.

After his followers stormed the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Trump was permanently banned from Twitter and suspended from Facebook and YouTube. As a result, Trump has been working on Truth Social, a pro-free expression social media site aimed at combating supposed “Big Tech” repression.

“Unlike Big Tech platforms, there will be no shadow-banning, throttling, demonetization, or tinkering with algorithms for political manipulation,” Trump stated in October. “We will not quiet our fellow citizens merely because they may be mistaken—or, even worse, because we believe Americans “can’t handle the truth.” Truth Social, on the other hand, has had a difficult start. The platform was expected to go live in November as a beta, but it never did. The site also used code from Mastodon, a social networking platform, but did not credit the open-source project until a month later.

Users should expect a similar experience to Twitter when Truth Social ultimately launches. But the key uncertainties are how it will handle content control (if at all) and if it will be able to compete with Facebook and Twitter in terms of user numbers. Devin Nunes, who left Congress last month to become CEO of Trump Media & Technology Group, was one of the people it attracted.
