The gaming performance is sufficing, as well as it runs perfectly on the medium graphics. There were just a few minor skipped frames on the highest graphics settings. So you can enjoy playing the most demanding games on the redmi 3 pro. It comes with mei 7.2 that has been built on top of android 5.1. Hopefully Xiaomi updates this phone to marsh mellow soon. UI is the same as on any other Xiaomi phone. As usual, no app tray and all apps rest on the redmi 3 pro’s home screen. In case you are not yet familiar with the MI UI, it has tons of features customization options that consist a wide choice of a themes, wallpapers, fonts and so on.
Also I have notices slight improvement over the redmi 3 and that’s all due to the updated software. The camera has become more consistent with daylight shots and doesn’t struggle with focusing. If you take pictures in good lighting you can achieve some great results. The images are sharp and detailed almost every time you take a photo. The only downsides are that sometimes there is a software focus on the corners. And the dynamic range was off in a few shots. The indoor and low-light shots have less detail and more noise but they are still not bad for the phone this cheap before you compare the redmi 3 pro to other devices. The video quality is good but not great, the level of detail is decent. There is some noise in the video, the footage could have more sharpness. The lack of optical image stabilization leads to a kind of shaky footage. Well I consider it is too much to ask for optical image stabilization in budget phone.
All the connectivity options were great, everything is okay, in terms of quality. The signal reception is excellent. Aslo the Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth are working fine however, I was disappointed that the phone does not support 5 gigahertz Wi-Fi connection.
Mark Zuckerberg even emphasized on the fact that the use of cryptocurrency will help in the elimination of fake news. People also think, Zuckerberg is trying to catch up with the competitors Alibaba and WeChat that have mobile payments available. Taking Facebook to a different usage level for business organizations.
The Question: Will Facebook have its own Cryptocurrency?
Here we will be discussing that will that come into existence or if it should. & for that we have delved around the internet, learning cryptocurrency & merging it with the social media.
Let the fact alone, that a platform as powerfully enormous as Facebook having cryptocurrency or linked with a cryptocurrency will definitely have its potential.
What will Facebook need to do?
Facebook digital Currency Impact?
The new technological era shapes the future splendidly as every moment passes by with a variety of technologies and innovations occurring in present time. Since the development of the wheel which is to believe the biggest invention of human history among all the discoveries occurring through-time. Inventing and designing things haven’t stopped since it is in the human nature to raise questions about any possible object or a living thing which leads us towards inventing new things. Technologies are not invented in a blink of an eye(a metaphor) but in months, years or even lifetime of hard work of its inventor which makes it achievable, to be able to portray the desire, skills, and motivation behind the technology which is invented.
New technology inventions isn’t a hoax but a reality which is made possible through hard work and dedication. New technology inventions are accomplished to make not only the dreams of its creator possible but to make everyone’s life much easier and to be able to live a better much purposeful life.
Through time new technologies are invented and in this modern era of tech, the inventions are being made so quickly that sometimes the past technology invented is depreciated. Let’s discuss some of the cool technologies which can shape future of thousands and millions at an instance and improve our ecosystem, and communication and decrease the cost eventually.
The question popping right after hearing this will be since when did water become edible? This edible water is a blob-like water container made from sodium alginate gel which lasts better than any other water. The purpose of inventing this was to increase eco-friendly environment due to the vast amount of plastic bottles being constructed every day by the companies. It is estimated at 450 years plastic decompose organically. Those countries with the shortage of water can be helped by these blobs in distributing safe and healthy water to its residents.
A wearable external suit for a human enhancing the strength and flow in a person’s body. A suit designed and powered by electric motors, and hydraulics to help people move with a greater force.
This invention was done in order to improve the movements and postures of disabled people to enhance and make their everyday life better.
The literal meaning of this is the data we send to the server is calculated and send elsewhere to be stored.
Cloud computing provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. Companies which provide cloud servers simply charge for the amount of service being provided.
A cloud-based server can be accessed by mobile and web.
Some of the benefits of cloud computing are:
The cost for buying hardware and software for data servers is diminished and the cost for electricity bills also.
Cloud servers are faster than the physical servers depending on the type of service being provided.
Data becomes more reliable as compared to others as the datacenters used to store the data can be duplicated and stored as a mirror image in-case of future disasters.
Self-Driving Trucks and Cars:
The possible future of human-driven vehicle is the self-driving capability of a vehicle. Cost of human life and fuel is the major part which will make the human-driven cars extinct and give self-driven cars more exposure towards society. As more and more companies work towards the automated driving of a vehicle due to the increase in accidents and fuel consumption. Two major competitors of the motor world Trucks and Cars which are widely driven type of vehicle across the globe and companies are working hard to make these self-driven but what are the cons which make us think of revolutionizing the vehicle world.
Humans tend to make mistakes and these mistakes can be costly taking human life with just one thrust of a pedal. Fuel is the also the key factor as automated cars will cover the routes even quicker without getting stuck in traffic with more efficient knowledge of roads.
We’ll just have to wait and see whether this technology will bring robustness or be a downfall.
Technology is one of few things in our world which has evolved over time and with the thinking of moving forward. Not every invention is a complete package towards glory but a chunk of what is to be achieved in the future. Technology has always been pivotal in inventions and globalization and about future technology:
“Expect some unexpected things in the time to come”.
Today we’ll discuss a new product launched by the famous retailers Amazon, having set foot in the physical book market previous year they are moving forward towards new ideas now even faster.
Who doesn’t like to shop at just a Go and skip the rest standing in a queue for billing part aside…well then your problem has just been solved by Amazon Go technology being officially launched for public earlier this month on 22nd of January in Seattle where the Amazon headquarters resides. Your shopping time won’t prolong much here as the purpose of this store is to minimize the time taken to shop at a grocery store and to encourage people to shop without any barrier.
Here we’ll share what is this product, how this product works, what technology this product uses, and much more.
What is Amazon Go:
An environment made for customers to grab whatever they may wish to buy with no cash registers and cashiers starring at you at the time of your exit as if you were stealing, this place is fully packed with cameras and sensors which monitor the products when moved in or out of the shelf and leave without on-time payments to be made.
How it works:
The way to shop for products here is a quite different experience which you may encounter unlike at other stores, as you will be needing an Amazon account and an Amazon Go app on your mobile phone to gain an access to the store. IOs and Android phones can download the application for Amazon Go from their respective stores i.e Apple App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore etc.
People can enter the store with their phones that have this app installed, can shop freely as much as they want and will be charged for only those products which they take. After shopping just carry the items you intend to take with you and feel free to get out of the store anytime which will generate the bill slip sent to your mobile phone after leaving the store. No cashier means no cash register resulting in no stress to stand in-line and wait for turn this is impressive and attracting to those who are busy and have less time to schedule grocery shopping or to host a quick dinner for some friends as this store has a system embedded to also tell you about the list of items needed for quick 30 minutes of cooking.
Amazon boasts about the technology that their system uses computer vision, sensor vision, and machine learning. To explain it more, computer vision is the technology used by the store allowing cameras to see what item is being picked and who has picked it to determine the customer which is combined with the sensor technology which senses the type of product and much more.
The store is fully loaded with a bunch of cameras atop of the shelves or around the store which keeps track of the products being picked or returned. If a product which is been picked by a customer than that item is at instance added to the shopping list of the customer and removed when the product is returned to the shelf.
What products Amazon Go offer at the store?
A wide range of menu for meals throughout your days like breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options. Grocery ranges from daily necessity items like bread, milk, cheese, and chocolates. Quick home-cooked dinner, chef-designed Amazon Meal Kits, can be purchased with all the ingredients you need to make for a meal.
Launching this product will help people who are either lazy or busy to do shopping with less time to waste and quick purchasing at this platform moreover with the increase in a potential market of the system with no cashier, this may affect the jobs of 3.5 million Americans according to a survey who work as cashiers for different stores. Amazon insisted global market on not being affected by this as they say we have workers here also who perform different tasks such as helping the customers, filling the shelves with products, monitoring etc. Opinion about Amazon Go technology, to be precise “A place worth visiting”.

Since the launch of SpaceX Falcon 9, a rocket program which made the social media buzzing and filled trendings like #aliens #ufo etc across different platforms for what it was to be believed were the aliens or a ufo hovering above us meaning the end of the world.
On the date of 22nd December around 5:27 pm at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California (United States) on Friday, a company named SpaceX launched its rocket program known as SpaceX Falcon 9 which is a partially reusable launch system build type rocket, launched in the skies of California. Let’s get to know what it is…
What is SpaceX in-case you didn’t know?
Space Exploration Technologies Corp. known as SpaceX is a private American based company known for its businesses in the fields of aerospace technologies.
Founded by an entrepreneur named Elon Musk in the year 2002, the headquarters are based in California (U.S.A), with the scope of various services included like low-cost space travel and the colonization of Mars. A various number of rockets are launched throughout the span of this organization such as Falcon launch vehicle family and the Dragon spacecraft family. Falcon 9 was the latest version of the spacecraft.
About SpaceX Falcon 9:
Let’s talk about the launch into the skies at the end of the year 2017.
Falcon 9 is a rocket designed and manufactured by the company SpaceX itself to make sure the reliability and safety transportation for a two-staged built rocket. The rocket was initially built for delivering satellites and spacecraft into orbit.
The basic purpose of this spacecraft was to provide low-cost
outer-space travel to private companies and for future space travels which will include people inhabiting on different planets. With re-flight system introduced for the first time in the world of rockets.
This Rocket is although a reliable source but with its nine first-stage engines it can complete missions even when the engine shutdowns.
History was made in the year 2012 when Falcon 9 delivered Dragon spacecraft into the orbit making SpaceX the first private company to do so. Since then Falcon 9 has made numerous trips to space, delivering satellites to orbit as well as delivering and returning cargo from the space station for National Aeronautics and Space Administration(NASA). Falcon 9, along with the Dragon spacecraft, was designed from the beginning to deliver humans into outer-space and under an agreement with NASA, SpaceX is working toward this goal to make it possible and easing the lives of people across the globe. The estimated cost per launch for this craft is about $62M.
Falcon 9 family:
With some of its ancestors launched already and some are yet to come here is the list
The Falcon 1 was an expendable launch system privately developed and manufactured by SpaceX during the years 2006–2009.
On 28 September 2008, Falcon 1 became the first privately-developed liquid-fuel launched vehicle to go into space orbit around the Earth.
Falcon 9 v1.0:
The first of its kind, this version of the Falcon 9 generation launch vehicle. Falcon 9 v1.0, was an expendable launch vehicle that was developed in the initial years of the company from 2005–2010 and was launched for the first time in 2010. Falcon 9 v1.0 made a total number of five flights in 2010–2013 later on, it was retired.
Falcon 9 v1.1:
The second version of Falcon 9 spacecraft, first flight launched in September 2013, uses a longer first stage powered engine designed by nine Merlin 1D the engine arrangements for this is an “octagonal” pattern, SpaceX calls it Octaweb. To simplify the streamline of the craft and the manufacturing process this craft was designed.
Falcon 9 Full Thrust:
The third version in the series of Falcon 9 launch vehicle after the launch of the Falcon 9 v1.0 (2010–2013) and the Falcon 9 v1.1 (2013-2016)— has a cryogenic cooling of propellant increasing about 17% higher thrust.
The latest version of the Falcon series which is expected to be launched in the month of January 2018.
Falcon Heavy is also a reusable but super heavy-lift launch vehicle, designed and developed by SpaceX itself. The Falcon Heavy is a
sub-type of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle and will consist of a strengthened Falcon 9 rocket in the middle and two additional Falcon 9’s adjacent to it.
All the Buzzing Across the Globe:
As we uncovered the story about this event when everyone outburst different speculations regarding the launch, it is to be sure that no aliens neither ufos were to be found but a SpaceX rocket program which wrote history.
