Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 To Launch With A New Windows 10, Report Says

Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 To Launch With A New Windows 10, Report Says
It about time that Microsoft should come up with an upgrade for their mixed reality headset HoloLens. But it seems, Microsoft wants to launch it with a significant overhaul. The next generation of the headset could arrive by the end of this year or early 2019, the sources told Windows Central.

HoloLens 2 (codenamed “Sydney”) will arrive with a new version of the Holographic Processing Unit (HPU). Microsoft dropped details about it last year. HPU v2 will house an AI coprocessor to implement Deep Neural Networks on the device itself, reducing the dependency on the cloud when processing visual data.
Powered by an ARM processor, the next-gen HoloLens could also include LTE connectivity to deliver a more mobile experience while keeping tabs on the battery life.

However, what’s grabbing the attention is that there would be a new version of Windows 10 (codenamed Oasis) for HoloLens 2. Oasis will be based on the Windows Core OS and specially built for mixed reality devices. It will come with the adaptable UI called CShell that optimizes itself according to the device type.

The original HoloLens has been there for more than three years, but a consumer version is yet to arrive. The Developer and Commercial editions exist, but their expensive price may have been a turn down for many.

Last year, we saw several affordable third-party headsets in the market based on Microsoft’s technology. Let’s wait for the upcoming release to see what Microsft has to offer.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What is ASP.NET? and it's ARCHITECTURE

What is ASP.Net?ASP.Net is a web development platform provided by Microsoft. It is used for creating web-based applications. ASP.Net was first released in the year 2002.
The first version of ASP.Net deployed was 1.0. The most recent version of ASP.Net is version 4.6. ASP.Net is designed to work with the HTTP protocol. This is the standard protocol used across all web applications.

ASP.Net applications can also be written in a variety of .Net languages. These include C#, VB.Net, and J#. In this chapter, you will see some basic fundamental of the .Net framework.

The full form of ASP is Active Server Pages, and .NET is Network Enabled Technologies.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
