[Technology ★★★]

how-the-iphones-home-screen-has-evolved-over-time

(P1) The first ever iPhone was launched on June 29, 2007. It was a mobile phone that had many capabilities and could connect to the Internet. The iPhone had a camera, a video camera, an MP3 and video player, and was a mobile phone. It also had e-mail and text messaging. The iPhone also had a touch screen with a virtual keyboard and buttons. The company that made the original iPhone is called Apple, and it spent $150 million developing the phone.

(P2) The original iPhone has been updated several times. In July 2008, Apple introduced the iPhone 3G. In June 2009, they introduced the iPhone 3GS. Over 1 million iPhone 3GS phones were sold within 2 days of its release. One year later, the iPhone 4 was released, and 1.7 million people bought one in the first 3 days. The next iPhone was the iPhone 4S. Then on September 21, 2012, Apple released the iPhone 5. This was followed by the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were both released on September 19, 2014. As of September 2016, we now have the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. It’s Apple’s state-of-the-art technology.

Gadgets

[Technology ★★]

computer-823613_640-e1436278893266

(P1) A gadget is a small piece of electronic equipment that does a particular job. Examples of gadgets could be cameras, watches, cell phones or computers. According to the BBC News, British people throw away 17.5 million gadgets each year. Old gadgets like cell phones, computers, and cameras are being thrown in the bin and end up being buried in the ground. This is causing problems for the environment.

(P2) Environmental groups that want to help save the planet are worried that people are not recycling enough. An environmental group called Waste Watch is encouraging people to use recycling services at phone shops and supermarkets instead of throwing gadgets in the bin. Brad Smith, who works at Waste Watch said, “Too many people throw their old electronic equipment in the trash. They don’t know that these gadgets can be recycled and reused by other people.” There are over 10, 000 places to recycle gadgets in Britain. If more people start to use them it can make a big difference to the environment.

A first look at GoPro’s foldable Karma drone

[Technology ★★★]

2016goprokarmaledenew-edjt

(P1) It finally happened. After months of teasing its first drone, GoPro today revealed the Karma. As we mentioned earlier, the quadcopter features a sleek and compact design, with foldable blades that’ll make it easy to fit into a backpack. We had the chance to check it out in Squaw Valley, California, where GoPro hosted a launch event for the drone itself as well as the new Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session. The Karma is quite easy to fly, thanks to its gamepad-esque controller and an easy-to-use interface.

(P2) GoPro says it didn’t want to complicate things, and that’s why the controller menus are simple and straight to the point. For example, you can set the Karma to go from point A to point B, for however long you want it to, with a couple of taps on the screen. There are also two main physical buttons on the remote, one to start and stop the drone and another to have it return to its original launch point.

(P3) We only spent about ten minutes testing the Karma, but that was enough to deem it as an impressive device. Namely because of how easy it is to fly and pair with either the GoPro Hero5 Black or the smaller Session (Or Hero4 Black/Silver). Speaking of which, GoPro’s pricing the Karma at $799/£720 on its own, or $999 and $1,099 if you get it in a bundle with the Hero5 Session or Hero5 Black, respectively. It’ll hit in just a few weeks, on October 23rd.

Apple’s New iPhone Is Just a Modest Upgrade

[Technology ★★]

1083001-11-20160907175118

(P1) This year’s iPhone, revealed Wednesday, is seen as a more modest upgrade, as several analysts noted that it was increasingly difficult to make impressive changes in hardware, the AP reports. Among Apple’s biggest changes are nixing the headphone jack and adding a “dual lens” camera to the higher-priced 7 Plus model. Some thought that could be enough to entice new users. “I believe Apple did enough to keep the base happy with upgrades and arguably did enough to attract some Android users,” one analyst says.

(P2) Many longtime Apple users had been complaining on social media about the lack of a headphone jack in the new phones. But another analyst says she doesn’t think that will turn off prospective iPhone buyers. “Three months later, it will be, ‘Why did we ever have that?” she says. But while Apple’s claims for its new “Air Pods” wireless earbuds seem technically impressive, Bob O’Donnell of Technalysis Research says people are likely to lose them. “You start losing those things, at $160 a pair, you’re going to go crazy.”

A Plane Just Flew Around The World… Without A Single Drop Of Fuel

[Technology ★★★]

9nhd2-plane-flew-around-world-no-fuel-2

(P1) Only one year after it first took flight, a solar-powered plane has completed an epic around-the-world trip without burning a single drop of fuel.

(P2) The revolutionary zero-fuel aircraft, Solar Impulse 2, is piloted by Swiss engineer and businessman André Borschberg and Swiss psychiatrist and aeronaut Bertrand Piccard. The two have been developing the plane for over a decade to promote clean technologies.

(P3) The Solar Impulse 2 touched down Tuesday morning in Abu Dhabi, at the same airport where it embarked back in March 2015.

(P4) Over the last 16 months, Piccard and Borschberg took turns flying the aircraft nearly 27,000 miles, tallying eight world records along the way.

(P5) “We have traveled 40,000 kilometers without fuel. Now it’s your turn to take it further,” Piccard said. “We have enough solutions, enough technologies. We should never accept the world to be polluted only because people are scared to think in another way. The future is clean, the future is you, and the future is now.”

(P6) The Huffington Post reports, “The aircraft is made mostly of carbon fiber and is powered by 17,248 solar cells attached to its wings, which recharge four lithium polymer batteries. Despite its 236-foot wingspan, it weighs roughly the same as a Ford Explorer and nearly 200 times lighter than a Boeing 747. It reaches a top speed of 90 mph.”

Here’s how you can tell if someone has blocked you on Snapchat

[Technology ★★★]

snapcode

(P1) Snapchat is widely popular with the younger generation for sharing visual content. While the app allows users to share videos and pictures with friends, one feature that makes it different from other apps is that the messages disappear from the recipient’s phone after a few seconds.

(P2) However, no app is perfect and even Snapchat has some flaws. The biggest flaw with Snapchat is that the application doesn’t make it obvious if someone has blocked or deleted you.

(P3) Fortunately, using some neat tricks you can know for sure if someone is no longer following you or has blocked you.

(P4) To see if someone is following you back or not, tap and hold on their name to see their Snapcode. It’s the yellow ghost icon as seen in the photo above.

(P5) In order to find someone, just search for their name in the chat section of Snapchat or simply look for them in your list of friends.

(P6) If you mutually follow each other, you will be able to see your friends Snapscore. A person’s Snapscore is the total sum of all snaps (photos and videos) they’ve sent and received in the app.

(P7) However, if the person’s Snapscore is not visible, it means they are not following you.

(P8) If someone doesn’t follow you back, it could mean they’ve either unfollowed you, blocked you or that they never followed you, to begin with.

This Jacket Will Wirelessly Charge Your Phone

[Technology ★★★★]

1073705-11-20160628102348

(P1) Not yet terrified that you’ll suddenly burst into flame? Put on one of Hiral Sanghavi’s jackets. The man behind Kickstarter’s BauBax travel jacket, which last year became the fourth most-funded project on Kickstarter, raising $9.2 million—hopes to raise $100,000 with his new plans for clothes that wirelessly charge your devices. The jackets, hoodies, jeans, and shorts come with a pocket for your phone or other devices that serve as a wireless charging pad thanks to a hidden copper wire and a battery bank. The battery bank takes two to four hours to charge, using a BauBax charging pad, and provides a full charge to a smartphone or two charges to a smartwatch, reports CNNMoney. If you’d rather not wear the battery, BauBax also offers charging wallets, wristlets, and more.

(P2) The clothing ranges in price from $69 for men’s shorts to $169 for a jacket, but necessary add-ons drive up the cost. The $49 battery bank is sold separately, as is a $39 watch connector, $29 charging pad, and $15 phone case that provides wireless charging capability for iPhones; Android devices can go without the case. The prices are expected to climb as the campaign continues. Still, Cherlynn Low at Engadget, who got to try some of the products, suggests they’re worth a try. “The soft interior lining made the clothes comfortable and the garments felt luxe,” she writes. “I was impressed that, even with the phones and battery packs in the pockets, the women’s vest I tried on didn’t show any unsightly bulges.” The gear is scheduled to ship out in January.

Tech companies partner to deliver turbulence reports to pilots

[Technology & Travel ★]

160616104007-airplane-turbulence-780x439

(P1) In-flight WiFi provider Gogo is partnering with IBM’s The Weather Company to deliver real-time turbulence reports directly to pilots.

(P2) Under the deal, Gogo will incorporate Weather’s patented turbulence detection algorithm software, called Turbulence Auto PIREP System (TAPS), into its communications server. That will enable Gogo-equipped planes to automatically deliver real-time turbulence reports directly to a Weather Company server. From there, The Weather Company will relay the information to airlines, dispatchers and privately owned planes that purchase the service.

(P3) Though only Gogo-equipped planes can relay the reports as they pass through turbulence, any airplane owner or airline that has WiFi connectivity can subscribe to receive the reports, said Gogo spokesman Dave Mellin.

(P4) Gogo vice president of connected aircraft Andrew Kemmetmueller heralded the new system in prepared remarks. “In this increasingly connected world, it’s no longer just about passenger connectivity. We have to consider all the other ways we can leverage the available technology to enhance the overall flight experience and improve safety — such as a connected aircraft,” he said. “Our ability to provide access to real-time data through our network will help pilots and operations teams improve flight planning, and ultimately, help airlines deliver the best in-flight customer experience throughout a flight.”

(P5) Initially, private planes with Gogo systems will be the only ones relaying turbulence reports. The Installation will begin in the fourth quarter. The relaying software will eventually be expanded into aircraft owned by Gogo’s 17 commercial airline customers, Mellin said.

(P6) Each year, turbulence incidents cost airlines approximately $100 million due to crew and passenger injuries, unscheduled maintenance, operational inefficiencies and revenue lost while planes are out of service, Gogo and the Weather Company said.

(P7) National Transportation Safety Board data shows that 65 people sustained serious injuries over U.S. skies between 2013 and 2015 due to turbulence. This spring brought a rapid-fire series of high profile turbulence incidents around the world, including one on an Etihad flight over Indonesia in which 10 people were hospitalized and 31 were injured.

(P8) Most turbulence-related injuries occur when planes hit what is called “clear air turbulence,” which is invisible to radar or the eye, unlike the turbulence generated by storms.

How to take perfect pictures of your pet

[Technology ★]

howto-petpictures-1-650-80

(P1) Holding the camera at eye level to take a picture is such a natural posture that you start to take it for granted. But if you take a shot of your pet from a normal standing position, the result is a boring, unimaginative picture where your pet just looks small and insignificant. Instead, you need to get right down to your pet’s level, even if that means lying down with your camera on the ground.

(P2) This simple step makes a huge difference. Now you’re shooting your pet from its own eye level and seeing the world from the animal’s perspective, rather than a human’s. If you have to shoot through long grass or flowers then all the better, because if you choose your position carefully and use a wide lens aperture to defocus the foreground and background, then it can create a rather nice framing effect.

(P3) You should experiment with focal length as well. A wide-angle lens used close up can produce a striking ‘dog’s-eye’ view of the world, while a telephoto lens produces a more pleasing perspective and helps you eliminate unwanted backgrounds and isolate your subject more effectively.

(P4) Most of all, look for a good setting. It’s all too easy to concentrate so much on your subject that you overlook the surroundings, but these are a vital part of the picture. Don’t just follow your pet around trying to get your shots. Choose where you want to take the picture and then entice your pet to pose in the location you have chosen. It can be useful to have a willing helper for this part!

(P5) Finally, all the techniques that work well for human portraits like lighting, focal length, focusing on the eyes, and the direction of the gaze can be applied to pet photography. As far as the principles of photography are concerned, animals are people too!
