Fullscreen view when streaming from or to APPLE TV

The full potential of the APPLE TV can be extracted only when you have an associated device like ipad or iphone or ipod or macbook from which you can control it or stream data to it.

I will not go into the details on how it can be setup as there are already a lot of videos on youtube.com which will clearly explain you on how this can be done.

One of the most common issues you are going to face when trying to mirror your iOS device to your TV via your Apple TV box is - you will not be able to screen your device to the fullscreen of the TV. This usually occurs because the aspect ration of your iOS device is 4:3 due to which the video will not occupy the full scope of your TV.

Fix for this problem is

Go to Settings -> Audio & Video
Adjust for Overlay Scan = Off
Play a video from the YouTube app of your Apple TV. You will get the full scope on your HDTV
Start Mirroring your device and ENJOY!!!

Me, Myself & My-Tech

Hackathons - my newest passion. Rediscovering myself...After some deep thought (with no help from deep mind), only recently I rediscovered my "Hackerself", which was buried deep within -
I started off as a Hacker at a very young age, always curiously trying to break and fix things, playing with my grandpa's screwdriver. In my first job, I worked as a System-Integrator for the Telecom CoE team almost 2 years, my first experience as a software Hacker, trying to crash hardware by giving them my own new firmware and bring down systems and networks.
My next best experience was working at a start-up for almost 3 years, learning and delivering with various new technologies. Then came the settling down a bit, when I have started working at a so-called “Big Indian” tradition IT firm during its dying days of innovation. After some very boring and uneventful hacking-years, I finally sprung back to life when I started participating to Hackathons - my first try was at a Hackathon org…

Age of the User

The Beginning When companies like Google had begun with the idea of understanding the users (of their Services) and their behaviours, they have started a new revolution in the data study and they have opened the door to a new dimension. This is now called Data Science. Not just Google, there are loads of companies before and after it, that created such impact, but Google was able to do it at an exponential scale due to the availability of data and usage of machines for studying and learning from this data. A few years ago, probably when I was born in the 1980s, maybe there was no one who even imagined that something like that would be possible. The Context of Everything Even though there is a method to the madness in the tracking of a (potential) asset (user), it has taken us to the extreme. Many of us are already tracking every action like moment, step, climb, breathe and heart-beat at every location and also share it socially.

In the not so distant future most objects or things we use…

Workforce Pyramid - Barrier or Boon for IT Giants?

Based on my experience, organisations are home to people with three basic roles

The EmployeesThe ManagersThe Leaders
which are the main pillars of growth to them. If any pillar falls, the organisation would most likely collapse 😔
Most large organisations like Google, Facebook, Apple, Airbnb etc. have already adopted to the widely spread principle Employee First, this is generally still not the case with many IT Consulting Giants which are owning a major chunk of the Outsourcing business across the globe. They are still lacking evolution in their basic thought process. If they fail to pivot it could very well lead to their END, which they fail to realise at this point.
Below I would like to briefly describe what each of these groups is actually meant to do and how they should likely transform -
The Employees.. are the largest chunk of any intellectually driven business and also it's greatest asset. In businesses where the resources are underutilized or undervalued, it would turn (g…
