TESLA Model 3: The Final Step In The Tesla Master Plan

After years of waiting, Tesla finally unveils the model 3; the Tesla Elon Musk bets will take the electric motor industry to the next level in terms of affordability and overall enhanced specifications. The model 3 (formerly called the model E) is Tesla's most affordable car yet. It combines real world range, performance, safety and spaciousness into a premium sedan.

Tesla Model 3

The model 3 unveiling comes with no shock as this has been Tesla's goal from day one: to produce a mass market electric car. Elon says it's Tesla's secret master plan. It was originally a trilogy, now it’s a "four part trilogy".First was the Tesla roadster: a high price, and low volume car launched in 2008 which showed the world that you could have a great electric car that's fast, sleek and beautiful.Then came the Model S; the fastest four-door car in history,  and then the Model X, for SUV lovers.

Make no mistake, this car is still a steal for its price, the base model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 6 seconds (faster than its comparable counterparts; the BMW 3 series and Mercedes C class) with iterations going even faster. It goes at least 215 miles per charge, and yes, it supports supercharging and auto pilot features by default, no add-ons required.The model 3 already has over 250,000 orders. I bet keeping up with deliveries may be a little be challenging. But this is definitely worth the wait     .Tesla model 3

Tesla places a $35,000 ptice tag for the base model, and Elon Musk says it’s a 5 star car in all respects.

Instagram’s New Algorithm Is Finally Here, And Yes It Ruins Your Feed image

Instagram’s New Algorithm Is Finally Here, And Yes It Ruins Your Feed

Okay so remember when your Instagram timeline went nuts somewhere around this year’s Easter season: with posts like “Instagram is about to change its algorithm, change your profile setting to continue viewing feeds from me…. Blah blah blah.”  Yup we hated that too.

Earlier this year, Instagram began testing a new feed sorted by an algorithm, and announced it was going to change the order in which feeds appeared in users’ timeline showing images and videos  ” best suited” for users. In other words, no more chronological feeds.

 

YOU'RE FLOODING THE WEB WITH WAY TOO MUCH DATA

In a lot of ways, the switch makes sense.  Instagram continues to top the image sharing platforms, and with its user base growing daily, it becomes harder to keep up with your followers and their posts. With over 400 million monthly users posting more and more photos and videos daily, the company explains that on an average, 70 percent of feeds are missed by users, and it's goal is to crunch those numbers.

 

NO, NO! YOU CAN’T DISABLE IT

Instagram says there is no way users can disable it. At least for now. That’s such a bummer for users who like getting a timeline view in their feed - like me.  However, you can still get a chronological view of a user’s account when you tap on their name.

 

NOT TOTALLY A BAD IDEA

According to Instagram, this new algorithm ensures you never miss a post from your best friend or favourite celebrity, no matter how many accounts you follow. A more personalized feed based on what Instagram thinks you will enjoy is created for you. The new feed algorithm will presumably work like Facebook’s . the more attention a post gets, the more likely it is you see it. This means some posts will “vanish” almost immediately – sorry!

 

Instagram will roll out the changes to the feed over the next month

Everything You Need To Know About The iPhone 7 And 7 Plus image

Everything You Need To Know About The iPhone 7 And 7 Plus

In recent months, we’ve learned a lot of circumstantial things about the next iPhone. So much, we think Apple should really consider firing their security team. It seems as though half of the internet today has an iPhone 7 shell, one might speculate Apple allows these leaks to happen on purpose, maybe for extra publicitybut iPhone leaks are everywhere, and here’s what we know so far.

Models

it was long rumored that Apple would be releasing three iPhone models this September: the iPhone7, 7 Plus and 7 pro. We however don’t think this is going to happen. Apple is very likely to stick to the expected two: the 7 and the 7 plus.

Design

This one, we are absolutely certain of, it’s been leaked way too many times.

Both iPhone models will feature a raised camera edge, a larger camera on the iPhone 7 and a dual lens (yes you heard that right) on the iPhone 7 plus. Unlike the horizontal antenna bands found on the previous iPhone models, the antenna bands on the iPhone 7 and 7plus will wrap around the top and button of the phone, giving it a cleaner appearance. The headphone jack will be gone, and a smart connector is rumored to happen on the iPhone 7 plus; they would look just like they do on the iPad pro. This would open up the door to a world of potential features and third party accessories, maybe even wireless charging and what not.

 

Display

The display resolution isn’t rumored to go up, however Apple may go ahead to increase the color gamut to p3 spec, such as they have on the iMacs and the new iPad Pro.

 

Cameras

Both cameras will feature new improvements, but in different ways. The iPhone 7 will feature a larger sensor, optimal image stabilization, and have larger pixels so it will probably do better in low light. However, Apple isn’t likely to increase the mega pixel count. The 7 plus will feature a dual lens camera with many added benefits, such as optical zoom, better low light capability, and better focus. The raised edge on both cameras also appears slightly more noticeable than the one of the iPhone 6s and 6s plus.

Head phone jack

Yes people, the headphone jack is gone, and you’re going to have to deal with it!

For months now, rumours have swirled in about the lack of headphone jack on the iPhone 7. Wired headphones will connect to the iphone using its lighting port, and Bluetooth headphones will connect wirelessly. This means that lightning earpods are well underway, and other proprietary products will follow suit.However, sources confirm there would be a 3.5mm lightning adaptor shipping right out of the box.

 

Speed

The Apple A10 chip will definitely come to the iPhone 7. According to geek bench results, it will be on par with the A9X chip found on the latest iPad. The IPhone 7 chip is going to focus on power and efficiency. This means more battery life and improved speed for you.

 

Battery

 The battery will be getting bigger. 14% to be exact, from a 1715mAh model, on the iPhone6 to a 1960mAh model on the iPhone 7.

 

Storage

Apple will be ditching the 16GB in favor of a 32GB base model.

 

Release date

We might actually know the exact release date for the iPhone 7. To be this exact is a little unusual. We usually don’t know when, but @evleaks on twitter, is claiming to know the exact date. @evleaks is very prominent and reliable veteran, he’s been leaking news like these form many companies for years and years, and he’s saying it’s going to happen on the week of September 12. September 16th to be exact.

Did Tesla Motors just announce the world's fastest production car? image

Did Tesla Motors just announce the world's fastest production car?

Tesla just unveiled a new battery option for its Model S and Model X line of automobiles, and it’s raising eyebrows all over the world.

Tesla now has a car that goes 0 to 60 mph (~100kph) in 2.5 seconds. Yes! Faster than it takes you to read the title of this post

Tesla automobiles have always been fast: from the Roadster to the model S. However, with the newly unveiled Model S P100D, Tesla now has a car that goes 0 to 60 mph (~100kph) in 2.5 seconds. Yes! Faster than it takes you to read the title of this post. Even better, it’s the third fastest accelerating production car ever produced.

Model S Advantage

It’s almost impossible to comprehend a four door sedan with ample luggage space and seats for up to 7 persons can perform so well. It’s performance capacity can be compared to the Porsche 918 Spyder, Laferrari, lamborghini and the likes.

Model X advantage

The world’s quickest SUV just got even faster!

The world’s quickest SUV just got even faster, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph (~100kmh) in 2.9 seconds, and travelling up to 289 miles on a single charge. This range gets significantly improved with the Tesla super charger network.

Upgrade Plans

Tesla are already getting recognized for gaining more features with time. If you purchased a Tesla last year, chances are your Tesla has much more features than it did when you purchased it. It maybe even increased in value --- okay maybe let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.

Existing P90D Ludicrous owners can upgrade to a 100 kWh pack for $20,000, as their used 90 kWh pack will have to be recycled, while Tesla customers who have placed a Ludicrous P90D order (see what I did there), but not taken delivery, can upgrade to the 100 kWh pack for $10,000.

Apple Introduces The iPhone7 And iPhone 7 Plus  image

Apple Introduces The iPhone7 And iPhone 7 Plus

Apple took the wraps off its next-generation iPhones at today’s product event, and it turns out all our predictions were right – Well most of them. See here, in case you missed it. Let’s get back to the basics, shall we.

The iPhone 7 and 7 plus are almost exactly what the rumours said they would be. Maybe except for a few additions and uh, subtractions.  Starting at $649 and $769 (we would do the math, but it’s getting pretty unpredictable these days) for the 32gb base model, the iPhone 7 and 7 plus feature quite a number of improvements and new features too.

At first glance, it may not be obvious to the eye, but Apple has redesigned its signature home button. Perhaps a much needed change, the Home button features the same pressure sensitive technology as the ones on the new MacBooks, with taptic feedback too.

The cameras come next in line; both models feature a 7-megapixel FaceTime (front facing) camera. Things get pretty interesting at the back, with the 7 spotting a 12MP rear camera, and the 7 plus, two: a wide-angle and a telephoto camera. Both cameras also come with optical image stabilization and a quad-LED True Tone flash bundled in.

AirpodsPhoto: Apple

Apple also launched a set of wireless headphones called the “Airpods” which contain built-in sensors to detect when a pod is in your ear, and play music. Music won’t play otherwise. Apple is also including an adapter for older 3.5mm headphones, just in case you’re still stuck in the past.

NO HEADPHONE JACK, TWO CAMERAS, WATER RESISTANCE AND MUCH MORE.

The new iPhones come supercharged with a super powerful A10 chip. Apple touts it the most powerful chip ever on a smartphone, delivering 50% more power than the A9 chip. Now that’s fast – on paper at least. Battery life also got signicant boost, thanks to the super efficient A10 chip. Apple says the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have the best battery life of any iPhone.

Meet the Google Pixel, and you might forget the iPhone.

Google today announced it’s very first smartphone, and It’s called “Pixel”. Wait, what? Yeah you read that right. Unlike previous attempts with the Nexus and Motorola, the pixel is #madebygoogle, and a high-end competitor at that. Not unlike the iPhone and Galaxy s-series.  The Pixel comes in two models: The 5 inch Pixel, and the 5.5 inch Pixel X, and three colors: Quite black, really blue, and very silver.

From products, like the OnHub router and the Chromecast, it’s safe to say googles isn’t shy about hardware anymore. Let’s get to the details.

the Highest rated camera ever

Under the hood, Both phones feature a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, 32GB base internal storage, an 8MP front facing camera, and a 12.3 MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture (touted to be he Highest rated camera ever.). What's more, is the unlimited storage for photos and videos to google drive, which comes in handy when shooting 4k videos. 

optical image stabilization on the Pixel

The new Pixel phones come with built-in superfast charging capability, Google claims the battery lasts all day, and the device can run for 7 hours under a 15minute charge. The phones aren't as cheap as we hoped. If you've ever owned a nexus, this might come rather surprising as google ditches the affordable prices for the now-common $649 base price.

Perhaps on of the most important features on the phone is google's new assistant, simple called "Google assistant". with it, you can kick off a conversation which feels a lot like talking to Siri or Cortana. the assistant also has the ability to respond to follow-up conversations and dig into your preferences and other services such as Uber. 

And hey, there was also a really cool silicon valley intro, for Silicon Valley lovers at the #madebygoogle event. Here you go!
