Everyone is raving about the Google Pixel 2 XL’s screen burn-in issues. People who have never even touched a Pixel smartphone, much less owned one, have been obnoxiously quick to hop on a bandwagon riot against the second-generation Mountain View device. Some of the most ardent haters are, as you may expect, Apple groupies. But is this new evidence that Google phones suck?
When a computer talks back to you, it almost seems magical. However, there is a lot of research that goes behind converting text-based answers to speech ones. Initially, during the early days, lots of audio based outputs were recorded by natural human voices. However, with a large number of words present in the human language, it is largely clear that we need to teach the computer how to speak properly.
When it comes to an infected computer, there is not much a person can do except to try and clean it up. However, if there are tools that help you do that, it makes your duty much easier. Let’s face it: ad revenue is important to all web publishers. It’s important to us as well.
Ever since the iPhone 7, there has been an addition to the list of things smartphones can usually endorse as features – the inclusion of a headphone jack. Not that Apple was the first to exclude what for years has been considered a mandatory part of any personal computing device from their smartphone. But because it’s Apple and the iPhone is the most popular phone in the world. So it sets the standard.
To start off, ARM Holdings is a chip design company, which is owned by Soft Bank Ltd. ARM stands for Advanced RISC (Reduced Instruction Computer) Machine. RISC is something that people in Computer Science domain should definitely be aware of, but for the uninitiated, RISC is a microprocessor that is designed to perform a smaller number of types of computer instructions so that it can operate at a higher speed. Its speed is measured in MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second). Today, we take a look at the Cortex A53.
Apple recently launched their biggest and most expensive iPhone ever, iPhone X, touting it as “the future of smartphones.” One the main features alongside the completely bezel-less front display are what they call Face ID, a facial recognition technology for unlocking the phone and other authentication requiring tasks such as payment with Apple Pay.
Low battery is the bane of an avid smartphone user’s life. We all have had to face it, be it at class or somewhere out hiking, and in all honesty, running out of power midway in your day is quite frustrating. One of the problems that I have continued to notice is that with each passing year, phones are becoming thinner, essential features are being thrown away (RIP headphone jack), and that batteries are becoming smaller in capacity.
We don’t do much Apple news here, but it’s no secret that the iPhone 8 is gearing up to be one of the most popular phones of 2017. This isn’t merely because it’s another iPhone, either. What sets the 10th generation Apple device apart from its predecessors is its inclusion of modern hardware.
Imagine a world where you can use your phone to do phone things: texting, using apps, and yes, even the occasional phone call—but without paying $30+ a month to your corporation of choice.
To those willing to accept a few minor drawbacks, this world can be a reality.
So you’re planning on buying “that new Galaxy phone?”
Which one are you getting?
“The S8 Plus, obviously.”
Yeah. Because you’ve always preferred the bigger phone. You love smartphones and don’t want to hold back on spending all you can to get the best possible. You don’t want to get the smaller, compromising version just to save up a few bucks. You’ve always liked the bigger, 5.5-inch screens and you know from experience that your hand can handle using a phone that big.
