So, here are some of the strict parental controls that are integrated with the app. Generally, YouTube is free and there are no controls. But this special YouTube Kids app will have the controls which is perfect for kids watching the videos when they are parents are not around.

Parental control and search settings

The parents get a chance to choose the videos and then they can flag the same if needed. We often search for various things on the app. But with the parental control on the settings part it is good to turn off a few searches and the history of the same. Now, the child can only go through the things that the parents decide for them.

Timer settings

It is important that parents keep a timer as to they have to watch the videos only for specific time and then allot the remaining time to something else. The parents can even manage the sound effects and other stuff and the parents can surely relax for a while when the kids are having a great time. In order to keep the control stricter the parents can even opt for having pass codes and then this will help them control and monitor the app better.

YouTube Kids on big screen

Thankfully even kids can have theatre like experience and they can watch the videos on Smart TV and Apple TV.

So, YouTube feels that it’s the kid’s generation and for that there is need for kid’s content and so lot of it is generated. Kids learn a lot from these videos and it is also a good form of entertainment. So there will rarely be need for any other channels when this one is such a massive and amazing entertainment source for kids.

This is a smart step taken by the app because now when special YouTube app is created better revenues are expected to be generated. This will be an amazing chance for kids to include fun and entertainment in life.

So, when the person is making his resume, he will be in the position to maintain proper clarity about the salary expectation. This feature has been added with the help of the data that the members have already put in regards to base pay, bonus as well as the stock grants. Just a couple of weeks before Glassdoor had come up with the feature where the users can determine personal market value. Now, soon after that linkedin also added this feature based on the hiring trends! But the company expects that it is quite important to include the company’s members too in that. If they participate in this program then this will truly be a hit.

 

It is expected that near about 1 million people will give the salary data to the site and so this will help in determining the base salary of the professionals. It is estimated that professionals from USA, Canada and North America will all take part in the same. However, the sites have suggested that they will never make the salary data public.

This has helped the people in past and even in future it would be quite beneficial. So, whether you are on Glass Door or Linkedin you will get a chance to get better exposure and better information hereon.

So, this announcement has created havoc in the telecom field. This is because the premium mobile network of India has now joined hands with the world’s best phone.

As per Tim Cook, Apple would be partnering with Jio for proving free services to people who are purchasing iPhones. This will ensure a great experience. It is expected that those who are premium customers at Jio stores will get SIM activation at door steps and even the home delivery option. There are also offers for the enterprise customers and along with discounts there are some special rate plans too for the customers.

 

Airtel already has announced extra 10GB data for 12 months for iPhone 7. This will be 3G and 4G data. There’s also infinity plan which is in the lines of Reliance Jio plans. Now, it’s the question that when it comes to tiff between Airtel and Reliance Jio what would the customers like. Whether they would prefer Airtel or Jio for iPhone 7? If you choose Jio then there will be 300+ live channels for you. There would be best HD voice calling experience. There’s buffer free Facetime option.    Now, there is news that Apple and Jio are partnering as well…

Talking about the partnership, Tim said;

“Apple’s smartphone has “not done as well” in India in general and one of the key reasons for that is the “(high-speed telecom networks) infrastructure hasn’t been there”. But this year or this year and next year, there are enormous investments going in on 4G and we couldn’t be more excited about that because it really takes a great network working with iPhone to produce that great experience for people. And so I see a lot of the factors moving in the right direction there.”

He also talked about the infrastructure and said;

“I also think the government is much more focused on the infrastructure and on creating jobs, which is fantastic, because you really need the kind of infrastructure and the technology to do that.”

Then he talked about Indian population and said;

“What is important for Apple in India is that there are going to be a lot of people in the middle class who will really want a smartphone, and I think we can compete well for some percentage of those. And given our starting point, even though we’ve been growing a lot, there is a lot of headroom there in our mind, and so we are working very hard to realise that opportunity.”

So, with all these options, the customers have to now decide as to whether they really want to opt for this. There are reliance retail stores where you can get complete details. Hope the partnership will rock!
