ALWAYS CONNECTED , POWERED BY WINDOWS 10 & SNAPDRAGON




The first Windows 10 ARM laptops are about to release, and they're promising to keep the lights on for more than 20 hours on a single charge and provide LTE connection at all times.

QUALCOOM announced the first Windows 10 ARM laptops last week. 
HP Envyx2 and



Asus NovaGo are the devices acquiring this latest specs both will be equipped with Snapdragon 835 processors.

NovaGo –Asus
It’s a 13.3 inch 2 in 1 convertible, display rotates 360 degree to act both as laptop computer and tablet having resolution of 1920 X 1080

8 GB RAM will be powerful enough to meet the graphic needs together with the 256GB of UFS storage will go in good terms with the Snapdragon 835.  The major attraction is the 22 hours of battery life and 30 days on standby. It will also support full-size USB Type A ports and an HDMI one.

The NovaGo is going to have an embedded eSIM for LTE connectivity, and with the Snapdragon X16 integrated with the processor, it should be capable of delivering stable and reliable LTE speeds.  Of course Wi-Fi connectivity also available to take over when ever the DATA connection fails. 
HP Envy x2
Envy X2 is detachable 2-in-1 unlike the Asus counterpart. It resembles Microsoft Surface Pro in its outlook.

The 1920X 1080 resolution screen is 12.3 inches having the resolution of 1920 X 1080. Like Asus NovaGo this also possess 8GB of RAM and 256 GBS of UFS storage.
Also there is 20 hours long battery charge and 30 days standby mode. There is Stylus to boot kept in the package.
As the Envy x 2 has SIM slot for LTE and USB Type-C ports making it stand ahead of its counterpart.
Windows 10 ARM Laptops
 Qualcomm says that Windows 10 ARM laptops have the advantage over the usual machines mainly because they can stay connected to LTE all the time, last up to 25 hours or more with typical usage, and keep temperatures low and avoid troubled performance
We can say its a smartphone packaged in the form of a laptop that can run a full OS such as Windows 10. But have more options.

WAYMO to launch Driverless Self Driving cars


 Alphabet’s Waymo will launch a taxi service with no human on the driving seat. The company already fu tested the self-driving cars on public roads in Arizona,
The test without a human in the driver’s seat is first in US of this kind as many tech companies are competing to develop fully autonomous cars.
While self-driving car companies test their vehicles in public, they routinely have a human in the driver's seat ready to take over if the technology fails.
As per Waymo communique the public will start riding its Fiat, Chrysler, Pacifica minivans without human drivers in a test run of the service in the next few months in certain areas where the weather is stable like Arizona and Phoenix.  While the developers are still await a breakthrough to face snow or heavy rain.
Members of the public taking part in the company's trial in Phoenix will be its first customers, using a ride-hailing app.
At first, those passengers will be accompanied in the back seat by a Waymo employee, but eventually they will travel alone, although they will be able to hit a button to stop the car.
It will roll out the service to the wider public at a later date, although it did not say when.
The service will be free at first, but Waymo expects at some point to start charging for rides, a potential way to earn revenue to help offset the steep costs involved in developing the technology.
The state of Arizona has no restrictions on self-driving cars, unlike California and some other states.
"Because we see so much potential in shared mobility, the first way people will get to experience Waymo's fully self-driving technology will be as a driverless service," Krafcik said in prepared remarks after announcing the launch in Lisbon.
With over eight years of testing under its belt, Waymo is a pioneer of self-driving technology and has tested its system in six states, the latest being Michigan.
Last week, U.S. auto retailer AutoNation Inc announced a multiyear partnership for vehicle maintenance and repairs for Waymo's self-driving car operations.
General Motors Co , which acquired autonomous driving start-up Cruise Automation for a reported $1 billion last year, has signaled its intent to test a robotaxi service in the near future.

GM Chief Executive Mary Barra said in October the company aims to take the driver out of its self-driving vehicles "in quarters, not years." The carmaker's goal for its Cruise self-driving car unit is to "safely develop and deploy self-driving cars at scale" in dense, urban environments, not suburbs.

ALWAYS ONE STEP AHEAD; GOOGLE'S SURPRISE WITH PIXEL-2; PIXEL 2 XL




Google has unveiled Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones. The new phones will go on sale on October last and November first week.

 It is now accepting preorders on the Pixel 2 in Just Black, Clearly White and Kinda Blue, and the Pixel 2 XL in Just Black or Black & White. Both come with either 64- or 128GB of storage.
The squeezabale active edge-on both models- that instantly make avail of the Google Assistant for quick access to all your phone’s most commonly used features,. The performance of the camera has scored the highest mark by DXOMark.
It can achieve the same things as a dual-camera but with a single lens, and the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are the first phones to build in Google Lens.
You will get the same features in both the phones irrespective of the size or price.
The key difference between the two is the 5in full-HD (1920x1080) 16:9 screen on the Pixel 2, and the 6in Quad-HD (538ppi) 18:9 display on the Pixel 2 XL. They offer a wide colour gamut, and have been optimised for VR - both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are Daydream-ready.
One of the new features is that it can recognize any song you are listening to – without any communication with the Google data base. When you tap , Google Assistant will pop up and offer to find out the source on a music streaming service or the web. And Pixel offers at-a-glance readout of the time and date, reminders and whether you have any notifications.

Both are coming with waterproof, with an IP67 rating - with an all aluminium body that has a refined glass visor that transitions seamlessly into the metal body. The fingerprint scanner is said to be the fastest you'll find in any smartphone, and falls naturally under the finger on the back. Google has also added a splash of colour on the power button.
The new Google phones do away with the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, but you do get a USB-C adaptor in the box.Or you can use a pair of wireless headphones (Google has also announced a version of its own that build in the Google Assistant) or use the stereo speakers.
The primary camera is a 12.2Mp f/1.8 model with 1.4um pixels and OIS. While the original Pixel scored 89 in DXOMark, this new camera acheives 98 - the highest ever recorded in a smartphone camera.
Although it's a single-lens camera, Google's Dual Pixel sensor is able to generate a true depth map that enables the phone to create bokeh-effect (blurred background) photos just as a dual-camera might. This portrait mode works on the 8Mp selfie camera too.
Other new features include AR stickers, with Star Wars versions reportedly coming soon, and Google Lens. We first heard about the latter back at Google I/O. It's a smart feature that works a bit like Bixby Vision, giving you more information on whatever you're looking at. It can read email addresses, phone numbers and more.

In video the Pixel 2 supports both OIS and EIS, thanks to new 'fuse video stabilisation', and Pixel 2 owners will be pleased to learn Google is extending its offer of free Google Photos storage of all their full-resolution photos and video.
In terms of core hardware you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and either 64- or 128GB of storage. There's also Bluetooth 5.0 and the latest wireless connectivity.
A fast-charging battery (2700mAh in the Pixel 2 and 3520mAh in the Pixel 2 XL) can last all day, but offers up to 7 hours of use from a 15-minute charge.
Despite the larger screen and bigger battery, Pixel 2 XL is only slightly wider and taller than the Pixel 2. It measures 3x6x0.3in, while the Pixel 2 is 2.7x5.7x0.3in.

The software is obviously Android 8.0 Oreo, and the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be the first to get any OS updates. Google has moved the Google bar to the bottom of the home screen where it finds it a better fit. You can also squeeze the edge of the handset to bring up the Google Assistant.
