So what’s so good about Google’s new phone called Pixel?

Starting with the physical aspects, the Pixel XL has 5.5-inch 2,560 x 1,440 AMOLED display with a quad-core Qualcomm processor, 4GB of RAM, USB Type-C port, and rear-facing fingerprint reade. It has a 12 megapixel rear camera and 8 megapixel at the front. With 3,450mAh battery and the standard 32GB of storage, with the option to upgrade to a 128GB. The specs are not bad, but nothing out of the ordinary. However, compared to the Nexus, the Pixel has come a long way. But what truly sparks on the Pixel is the new 7.0 Nougat and other Google software specials. Think of the Nougat as a mini-chrome book software. With millions using Google’s Gmail and other applications, Nougat allows a smooth transaction from point A to B in an instant. Of course, let’s not forget the open software and developing options, that allows developers to create flawless applications. Overall, honestly, there is nothing special about the device itself, if you’re the person looking to purchase a phone, I suggest you wait until 2020 :).

New and Advance Internet in Space

New and Advance Internet in Space

It’s been about 3 years since we’ve tested the first and, found out how internet and WiFi communication in Space really worked, and it turned out decent. In fact, the speed was similar to that of a dial-up internet from the late 1990s. Fast forward that three years later to June 2016, NASA have come up with a new technology in how to relay information much quicker than our traditional radio wave communication here on Earth. Unlike Earth’s internet, Space has many anomalies to consider, from lack of gravity, lack of oxygen, solar waves…etc. With these interference into consideration, NASA have come up with The Delay/Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) service. The DTN service delivers more efficient, reliable, and effective communication from the Space Station to other satellites and Earth. DTN is almost similar to that of a compressed zip file. The difference is, instead of compression, information is gathered from one transmitter to the next until it reaches its destination. See the video on how it works or See NASA for the full Scoop.
