All we know so far about Apple iphones in 2018

Apple iphone 2018

Apple is one of the best brands for purchasing smartphones and we cannot deny this fact. Well, very recently the brand has launched its most hyped product – iPhone X. The brand, this year, will launch some more products and we can wait no more for the same.

What do we know about Apple products launching in 2018?

In this article, we are sharing the information we have gathered from different sources regarding the devices which Apple will launch in 2018.

We are hoping that 2018 will be the year for Apple lovers as the brand has so much in store.

Here’s what we are expecting from Apple this year:

What do we know about the three lined up devices

As for the rumours, the line of three Apple devices will consist of an iPhone with a 5.8-inch OLED screen, which is believed to be the successor of the iPhone X, an iPhone with a 6.5-inch OLED screen bigger and a Full 6.1. 6.1 inches cheaper. LCD screen for iPhone active.

Apple iphone 2018

The 6.1-inch iPhone should be the successor of the iPhone 8 Plus and offer improved specifications.

All devices will have an edge-to-edge infinity display

As for the design, the three iPhones, which will be launched in 2018, will have an infinite screen from one edge to the next with almost non-existent frames. Therefore, we can say that it will be very similar to the iPhone X.

The two expensive OLED models will have stainless steel frames and dual lens cameras. However, the cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone should have an aluminium frame and a single lens camera to keep the price down.

All Phones will support Face ID

The three iPhones scheduled for launch in 2018 will include Face ID compatible TrueDepth cameras, which will officially end with the Apple Start button and Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

The lower pice tagged 6.1-inch iPhone will not have a wireless charger and 3D touch support.

However, the 6.5-inch phone could support dual SIM.

Apple iPhones 2018

We are expecting a new processor and better RAM

All three iPhones are expected to be equipped with Apple’s new A12 processors, as well as enhanced LTE chips from Qualcomm and Intel for faster LTE speeds.

In addition, the iPhone OLED should incorporate 4 GB of RAM, while the iPhone LCD should contain 3 GB of RAM.

In particular, the 6.5-inch iPhone should be equipped with a high-strength battery.

Expected price tags of iPhones launching in 2018

The 6.1-inch iPhone LCD should be priced between $700-800.

While the price range for the iPhone OLED is not known, Macrumours has estimated that the 5.8-inch iPhone and the iPhone 6.5-inch prices are $999 and $1,099 respectively.

Meanwhile, instead of lowering the price, Apple will suspend the iPhone X once the new models have been released.

So, these are what we are expecting from all the iPhones launching in 2018. However, all these are just our expectations and ideas – they may or may not be true.

Also, even when we are not sure about everything, we are still very excited and are hoping for the best. The brand has never failed to make us happy and we are hoping for the same this year.

7 Unknown Facts about the Physics Legend – Stephen Hawking

World-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at his home in Cambridge, England early morning on the 14th of March 2018.

He was one of the most brilliant minds of our time. The physicist kept making headlines with his spectacular theories about the universe. Here, we will know many other unknown facts about him.

Stephen Hawking was paralyzed for over 40 years, confined to a wheelchair and still, he was a pioneer of physics and astrophysics. Stephen Hawking fascinated again and again. His contributions to quantum physics and his findings on black holes are spectacular.

Following facts you need to know about the physics genius Stephen Hawking:

#1 – Stephen Hawking Was A TV Star:

Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking was not only a brilliant scientist and physicist, he was also a movie and TV star. He was among others in the series “Cosmo and Wanda” and “The Big Bang Theory” to see. In addition, he has made guest appearances at “Futurama” and the Simpsons, where he gave his character a voice with his voice computer.

He has also made an appearance in the science fiction series “Starship Enterprise”. He was the only person in the Star Trek universe to play himself.

#2 – Hawking Had Experienced Weightlessness:

Stephen Hawking

One of the greatest dreams of this physics genius was a journey into space. In 2007, he was able to realize at least a little insight into this desire. Through a parabolic flight, the completely paralyzed physicist experienced a state of weightlessness for a few minutes.

In a parabolic flight, the aircraft climbed to 10,000 meters, followed by a dive to about 2600 meters. Hawking experienced this maneuver a total of eight times.

#3 – Stephen Hawking Was a Children’s Book Author:

Stephen Hawking

The physicist has not only written highly-complex scientific works but he also has written some children’s books. Together with his daughter, Catherine Lucy Hawking, he brought out three children’s books.

However, he remained true to his specialty – The books revolve around the phenomena of the solar system and the universe. The first book is called “The Secret Key to the Universe” and the other two are its sequels.

#4 – The Name “Hawking” As a Trademark:

Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking wanted to patent his name as a trademark. According to “The Independent”, he has already submitted an application to the British Patent Office.

Hawking had already advertised various companies and products in the past, including wheelchairs. By patenting his name as a trademark, he wants to prevent his name being misused for inappropriate products.

#5 – Hawking’s Diseases:

Stephen Hawking

The physicist was suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The first signs of the disease showed up during his studies. In 1963, he was told, he had only two years to live. He could no longer write his doctoral thesis himself because his hand showed signs of paralysis. Hawking has been in a wheelchair since 1968. In 1985, after a tracheotomy, the physicist, lost the ability to speak.

#6 – Infrared Sensor and Robot Voice: Hawking’s Voice Computer:

Stephen Hawking

While Stephen Hawking was not able to speak since 1985, he was using a voice computer. This has evolved over the years. At first, with a button in his hand, he chose from a list of terms he saw on a screen. The selected terms were then sent to a speech generator.

When his fingers became too weak for a keystroke, an infrared transmitter was integrated into his glasses. This was connected to the voice computer. The sensor measures the movements in Hawking’s right cheek muscle and one eye. Hawking makes a selection of letters, words, and phrases stored in his computer with each movement.

The developers offered the physicist to give his voice computer a new voice that would come close to his original voice. Hawking, however, retained his old voice.

#7 – Gloomy Thoughts About The Future:

Stephen Hawking

Hawking was not exactly optimistic about the future of humanity. He believed there is a constant risk that life on Earth will be completely wiped out by disasters such as a sudden global warming, a nuclear war, a genetically-modified virus or other dangers and therefore, the need for colonizing the space and other planets, thereby, preventing the extinction of mankind. In addition, Hawking warned of Artificial Intelligence. He feared that computer intelligence might not be controllable within next 100 years.

THE TWINS STUDY: A NASA EXPERIMENT – Space can change Human DNA?

NASA twin study

Space travel – though it sounds like a fascinating word for almost everybody, it’s more than an impossible task for a common person. There is a limitless curiosity among us regarding space and its existence. NASA and other different space research centers of other countries and their space scientists have been continuously doing the experiment on this. Many of them even lost their lives, during their research.  As a part of such experiments, Astronaut, Scott Kelly spent a year in space and has returned to the earth recently. And most surprisingly, with a different DNA structure, non-identical to his identical twin brother.

Scott Kelly is an American astronaut of 65 years old and a retired space scientist of NASA. He is a veteran space traveler, who traveled four times to space. He stayed for a total of 520 days in space in his career from December 1999 to March 2016.

The Space Experiment:

This time, NASA did an experiment with Scott and his twin brother Mark Kelly, who is also a retired Astronaut of NASA. Mark is an identical twin with his brother and has the same DNA. NASA has done this experiment by using Mark and Scott as subjects of study. Through this study, they wanted to find out, how long-term space travel can affect the human body or what exactly happens?

NASA twin study experiment

This was the final mission of Scott. And the result of the experiment has turned out to be just unbelievable. As it proved that space really brings changes upon us. When Scott returned from space, it was discovered that his DNA has significantly changed. About 93% of Scott’s genes have changed back after landing on earth, and around 7% of his genes have shown a long-lasting or permanent change. This includes his immune system, DNA repair, bone formation network etc.

Ten different research teams presented their preliminary findings last year at NASA’s Human Research Programme 2017 Investigators Workshop (IWS). The recent 2018 IWS has confirmed these findings. NASA explains,”while this finding was in 2017, the team verified this unexpected change in multiple assays and genomics testing. Additionally, new telomere (a compound structure at the end of a chromosome) shortened within two days of Scott’s return to Earth.” NASA said, ’’Scott’s telomeres actually became larger in space.”

The Result:

NASA has some hidden strategies besides the study of Scott’s DNA study. NASA, as well as Elon Musk’s Space Mission, is looking at the possibility of astronauts traveling to Mars. Scott’s stint for one year in space so far simplifies NASA’s plan for long-duration space travel.

NASA says,”Scott Kelly’s one year stint in space is a stepping stone to the three-year mission.” At present, astronauts only spend six months in the International Space Station as standard.”  A journey to Mars take at least three years, the longest time a person will ever be in space.

So, the change in DNA opened a new route for the scientists to think alternatively. After Scott’s study, it is confirmed that our DNA in body radically transforms with unknown effects. Many of us were expecting the first manned Mars trip will happen within 2030. But the human element cannot be overlooked at the same time. Still, we are hopeful. Certainly, scientists will find out some way towards the fulfillment of their mission.

The Nokia 8110 Returns – Revamped Their Older Model to A Newer 4G

Nokia was used to be one of the world’s biggest mobile phone manufacturers, but it fell behind with the arrival of Android and iPhone smartphones. But now, Nokia is gearing up for their latest smartphones. The Nokia 8110 4G is the new reloaded 4G feature mobile phone by Nokia. This model has a new design that rescues the best of the original model. The original model of Nokia 8110 was presented in the year 1998. In 2018 Nokia has reloaded it with a new design and many great applications.

Nokia has done it again at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) – 2018. The brand has taken advantage of this year’s edition to repeat the recall effect that it achieved last year with the new Nokia 3310 reviving one of the mythical models of the brand.

Nokia 8110 will have E-mail, Calendar, Facebook, Google Searches, Google Maps, Google Assistant, and so many other great things. Nokia also claims that this model will have automatic synchronization of these applications as if it were any other terminal with the Android operating system.

Banana Style Design – Nokia 8110:

The Nokia 8110 was introduced in 1998. And it was one of the most famous devices in the world of mobile phones. Nokia wants to rescue it, as they did with the 3310.

The original Nokia 8110 was characterized by a curved design and a sliding cover that covered the numeric keypad. They have kept the same design in this new model. The keyboard will be accessible after sliding a small lid as in the original version. Obviously, the manufacturing of the terminal will be in plastic material. Nokia 8110 will be available in black and in a pretty striking “banana” color.

New Software: “KaiOS”:

Nokia 8110

Kai OS is a Linux-based operating system for Mobile. This system merges the power of a smartphone with the affordability of a feature phone. The new Nokia 8110 is also Nokia with Android but there is no place for any of the versions of the Google system in the Nokia feature phones and the New 8110 also has Kai OS.

Smartest Model:

Nokia 8110

What is even more interesting than its design is that the Nokia 8110 4G is smarter and thanks to its various features such as Assistant, Maps, Facebook, and a handful of other applications that can be installed on the mobile.

Svalbard Global Seed Vault: The Modern Day “Noah’s Ark”

Global Seed Vault

INTRODUCTION:

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault is on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen near Longyearbyen. Some call it “Doomsday Vault”, others refer to it as “Noah‘s Ark” of food crops. It is buried inside a former coal mine on Svalbard, a remote Arctic island in a Norwegian archipelago around 1,300 km from the North Pole. The vault was established by the conservationist ‘’Carry Fowler’’. His association was with the consultative group of International Agricultural Research. Its main motto was to preserve a wide variety of plant seeds covering the whole world.

PURPOSE:

The Seed Vault was opened in 2008 which was designed to withstand a nuclear missile hit. It plays a key role in preserving the world’s genetic diversity. And it’s the home to more than 900000 varieties of seeds. It offers a safety net in case of natural catastrophe, climate change, disease or manmade disasters. Nations like Netherlands, Irelands, Canada, Switzerland; International seed research from Colombia, Mexico, India, Pakistan, and Syria placed their samples into the storage. At present, the vault contains one-third of the world’s most important food crops varieties.

THREAT TO THE SEED VAULT:

But there is a problem which is arising due to global warming. Warm temperature disrupted the environment around the vault. The temperature inside the vault is at -18 c. The permafrost, surrounding the facility will help maintain the low temperature of the seeds, should there be a power failure. But unfortunately, the permafrost which is for its protection, melted in 2016. According to one of the Seed Bank’s Co-ordinator Asmund Asdal, due to the unexpected warmer summer season, the water intruded in the (access) tunnel, which is a major and serious outcome of climate change.

The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. And Europe is at the moment experiencing a sub-zero cold spell, the North Pole recently registered above zero temperatures, 30 degrees higher than normal. According to the scientists, warm spells like these are occurring with increasing frequency in the Arctic.

The Norway govt. wanted to be sure that the seed vault will be cold throughout the whole year even if, the temperature continues to increase in Svalbard. Therefore, Norway recently announced contributions of 12.5 million dollars to improve the repository in a bid to protect the precious seeds.

THE LAYOUT:

Once you enter, it will lead you to a small tunnel-like room filled with the loud buzzing sound of electricity and cooling systems, which is there to keep a consistent temperature within the vault. To reach the end, one has to pass through the wide concrete tunnel illuminated by strip lighting leading 120 meters down into the mountain. At the end of this corridor, there is a chamber, an added layer of security which protects the vaults containing the seeds of varieties of food crops.

All necessary measures are there to take care the Vault from all kinds of possible atrocities and danger. There is a cabin to remove heat sources from the tunnel, near the site to house all the technical materials that can generate heat. It is mainly to prevent a recurrence of melting permafrost.

Inside Seed Vault

LAST WORDS:

If you deeply see and think within the bowels of an icy mountain lies a resource of vital importance, which holds the future of human­kind. It’s neither coal, oil, gold nor diamond, but seeds.In the time of hatred and increasing geopolitical tensions and uncertainty, the Svalbard vault will act as the only ultimate savior of mankind. It also acts as a symbol of unity because any organization or country can send seeds to it, it is beyond restrictions. Boxes from North Korea sit alongside boxes from the U.S. And, boxes of seeds from Pakistan sit happily with the boxes of seeds from India.  As long as they are cold and safe, that’s all that really matters.

Vodafone, Nokia, and Audi Will Install 4G Network on the Moon in 2019

Vodafone, Nokia, and Audi are working on an initiative to install the first mobile phone 4G network on the Moon in 2019. It is quite weird at once but this news is true and confirmed.

“The moon will get 4G coverage next year, 50 years after the first NASA astronauts walked on its surface. Vodafone plans to create the first 4G network on the moon to support a mission by PTScientists. We have a target to land in 2019 on Moon”. – A Vodafone representative said.

4G

How will this work?

Vodafone, Nokia, and Audi – These 3 companies are partnering and working together on this mission. They are planning to install 4G network on Earth’s satellite which can be used on the surface of Lunar. The network will allow the transmission of high definition content from the satellite to the Earth.

“The 4G network will be created with a technology known as Ultra Compact Network (UCT), which weighs about the same amount as a bag of sugar” – according to Nokia.

4G

The 4G network of Vodafone on the Moon will use the frequency band of 1800 MHz. And, it will be the first live broadcast of the surface of the Moon in HD quality. The signal will be much more efficient with the higher quality. And with less consumption than the analog signal that was used for communications in the Apollo missions. It will also serve as communication infrastructure for future missions.

This project will last for 11 days only initially, that because of a massive change of the environment and temperature on the moon.

The Joint Mission For This 4G Network By Vodafone, Nokia, and Audi:

The mission is expected to place on the Moon. Two Quattro rovers will be manufactured by the Audi Company. It will have the 4G network that will allow them to communicate with each other. Thanks to this connection, the rovers will be able to control themselves remotely and send scientific data and HD videos in the process of studying and analyzing Apollo 17. It is the same vehicle which was used by the last astronauts to walk on the Moon.

4G

Recently, a team of scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), in collaboration with NASA, managed to have broadband on the Moon, obtaining better speed conditions or similar to most domestic ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) services.

This mission will be the first-ever privately-funded moon landing mission. Total cost for this project is expected below 50 Million USD.

The Technology:

The technology consists of a system of laser beams sent jointly by four telescopes to the lunar territory. That provides a broadband of 19.44 megabits per second. The tests carried out last year that confirms that it was possible to download data at a maximum speed of 622 megabits per second between the 3,84,633 kilometers that separate the Moon from Earth.

4G

Anyway, we can’t wait to see if they are actually able to achieve this mission in just 1 year. But the main point is when service provider companies have not yet managed to provide a proper network on Earth, why they are working on Moon??

First Hyperloop Train of India – Between Mumbai and Pune

Mumbai and Pune are the two major and biggest cities of Maharashtra. Both Mumbai and Pune are great cities and offer the best standard of living. Mumbai is very well known in the world as Bollywood. And Pune is called as Oxford of the East. Recently, the news has been flashed that now these two beautiful cities will be connected with the Hyperloop train.

The world’s fastest transport technology is going to run between Mumbai and Pune. Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation for Hyperloop on Sunday evening i.e. on 18th February 2018. Since its running, the distance of 150 km between Mumbai and Pune will be greatly reduced. Now, it takes about 3 hours to go from Mumbai to Pune, which will be reduced to 20 minutes after Hyperloop.

What Exactly Is Hyperloop?

Hyperloop

Hyperloop is a supersonic train that would run inside a tube at speeds that would almost overcome the sound barrier. It can run up to 1,223 kilometers per hour.

The mastermind behind this incredible technology is Alan Musk who is also Tesla’s founder. Through Hyperloop, a tube will be placed on the pillars between Mumbai and Pune. Inside which the Hyperloop train will run. These trains run in the air inside the tube with magnetic power. Also, solar power and wind power will be used for this.

1,000 kilometer per hour Speed:

Hyperloop

On the first day of the conference by Maharashtra government, Virgin Group Chairman Richard Branson said, “We have signed a Hyperloop with Maharashtra.” It will start with the track for the test. Through this, 15 million passengers will be able to travel.

‘Hyperloop is also being linked to Mumbai to Pune and Navi Mumbai International Airport. Its speed will be 1000 kilometers per hour. It will be built along with the busiest expressways of the country, Mumbai-Pune Highway. It will also be used for passengers, as well as cargo operations.

What Is The Technology & How Does It Run?

Hyperloop

Hyperloop is the supersonic train project that moves inside a tube. Passive magnetic levitation system has been used in this technology. It is a technology developed by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the United States in the 1990s, whose license has now been acquired exclusively by Hyperloop Transportation Technologies to achieve a more efficient and safer system than the ‘maglev’ train version (levitation magnetic) that takes place in Japan.

The use of a passive levitation system will eliminate the need for power plants along the Hyperloop lines, which makes this system more suitable for the application and will keep construction costs low.

In conventional maglev, trains require many power stations that feed copper coils in the line to convert them into magnets. The technology of Hyperloop establishes a passive magnet in each vain and an aluminum post that contains wire loops. This configuration acts more like a pair of regular magnets, rather than an electromagnet that requires a constant supply of electricity to operate.

The Contract Was Signed Last Year In 2017:

Hyperloop

The contract for this project was signed between the Virgin Group and the Maharashtra government in the last year itself. In May 2017, Virgin Group signed the Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Maharashtra. Under this, the Virgin test will build Hyperloop between Mumbai and Pune.

Certainly, this project will get the best response from the inhabitants of Mumbai and Pune. They will be able to reach in just 20-25 minutes of time. Moreover, the fare of Hyperloop will be much lower than the airfares.

Why Executives of Indian-Origin Lead The Big Companies in The World?

For decades, Indians have been playing an important part in giant global companies. Two of the world’s largest technology companies Microsoft and Google are led by the CEOs who are Indian-origin. There are many others who have made a lasting mark in the world of technology.

A little more than 30% of the 500 largest companies in the world have Indian executives. The most recent to arrive at this club is the CEO of Google.

Indian

Why Executives of Indian Origin Lead The Big Companies in The World?

Executives of Indian origin are in fashion and the reasons are two: Professional skills and their ability to understand emerging markets. They master the language very well because, although they studied their careers in Indian universities, the programs were developed entirely in the English language. Secondly, their ability to understand emerging markets is explained because they come from them. Mastercard, Pepsi, Microsoft, and Diageo are some of the firms that have fallen under the Indian charm.

A Harvard Business Review study states that, until mid-2013, 30% of the companies listed on the Fortune Global 500 were run by executives born in India. That puts this country on the same level as Switzerland or the United Kingdom as high-level talent provider. This percentage has been rising, as two key appointments have recently been made: Satya Nadella, who has taken over as CEO of Microsoft in 2014, and Sundar Pichai, who is the head of Google.

Being engineers, who have mostly studied at the best Indian universities and then completed their postgraduate and professional careers in the United States and Europe, has helped Indian CEOs to forge a sense of amity with their subordinates, who in the world of the technology are mostly engineers. Sanjay Jha, Motorola’s Chief Financial Officer, is famous for rolling up his sleeves and working with his development and software partners.

Another characteristic of Indian CEOs is that before reaching the top, they have been successful product managers within their respective companies. Sundar Pichai, for example, before becoming CEO of Google was the one who developed and launched the Chrome browser, despite the objections of then CEO Eric Schmidt. Then, he launched Chromebooks and low-cost Android phones, among other products.
