Let me start by saying that I’m absolutely in love with this little thing. I ordered the Yi 2 4K action camera a while back through AliExpress, and at last just received it. The Yi 2 is a second generation action camera by Xiaomi, that was released in 2016. Continue reading “Xiaomi Yi 2 4k Camera”
ها قد اصبحنا نعيش في المستقبل، هو نفسه المستقبل الذي كنا نتخيله في الأفلام السينمائية منذ أقل من عشر سنوات. فقد أعلنت شرطة دبي خلال معرض الخليج لأمن المعلومات، الذي انتهى الإسبوع الفائت، عن أول روبوت شرطي في الإمارات العربية المتحدة. ووفقا لمقال نشرته جلف نيوز، ستشكل الروبوتات 25 في المئة من قوات الأمن بحلول عام 2030. يعمل الروبوت من خلال ذكاء إصطناعي عوضاً من التحكم به عن بعد عن طريق الحاسوب. يبلغ طول ووزن الروبوت الشرطي حوالي 170 سم و100 كجم. وقد تم توصيل الروبوت إلى قاعدة بيانات من شأنها أن توفر المعلومات المطلوبة لضابط الشرطة عن أي فرد. كما أن باستطاعة الروبوت أن يقوم بمسح للمباني لتحديد نقاط الدخول / الخروج. هذا يعد تطوير مميز وتحسين هائل لقدرات قوات الأمن في الإمارات (The MENA Tech).
Is it the future already? Could be…
Dubai security forces announced during GISEC (Gulf Information Security Expo), that ended just 2 days ago, UAE’s first police robot. According to an article published by Gulf News, not more than 2 weeks ago, robots will eventually make up 25 percent of the police force by 2030.
Just to be clear, the robot has an AI that helps it operate, and is not controlled from a distance. The new police robot is 170 cm tall and weighs about 100 kg (The MENA tech).
Suddenly I find myself remembering Will Smith’s film “I, Robot”…
The robot will be connected to a database that should provide the police officer with all information needed about any individual. The robot is also said to be capable of studying buildings and identifying points of entry/exits.
This is an interesting addition to Dubai’s security forces, should be really fun to see this robot in action.
Last week, during the first day of Google IO 2017, the company announced Android’s newest version “Android O”. The actual name of the new update won’t be announced until the actual release. The update will of course first hit Google’s own Pixel and Nexus (still supported ones only) devices.
During the first day of Google IO, Google announced that it’s launching the Google Assistant on iOS.
The assistant is available on iOS (USA only for now) as an application that will be able to perform certain tasks, as it does on Android, but with some exceptions to certain OS functions. That means you will be able to make calls, send messages, and play songs, but not set any alarms.
Users have to open the Google Assistant app to activate it, as the home button can not be remapped. Users can also add a widget to make the launching of the Google Assistant faster and easier.
My overall impression of the HTC U Ultra wasn’t that great and seeing the device first hand didn’t really change my opinion. HTC has just launched the HTC U11, which is greatly making up for the damages the U Ultra has caused. Continue reading “HTC U11 – Much better this time”
This month has witnessed the largest cyber-attack in history. More than 200000 devices, running earlier versions Microsoft’s Windows, from around the world have been infected by Wannacry Ransomware. So, what is Ransomware?
On the 10th of May, Samsung in Lebanon held a launch event for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus at OCEIL Dbayeh. At the event, Samsung showcased the two new flagships, along with their accessories, and the new 2017 Gear 360. Now with the being available, here’s what I think about it. As a first look, the 2017 Gear 360 looks really nice and really seems like it would fun to use. Continue reading “Samsung’s new Gear 360 – 2017”
Samsung has recently removed UFS 2.1 from the Galaxy S8 spec sheet. This has happened right after Huawei’s memory substitution scandal on the P10 and P10 Plus. To those that don’t know, Huawei installed different memory chips in the two variants, which resulted in users getting very different read speeds. Seems like Samsung has done the same thing.
On the second of May, YouTube opened up a “preview” of their new YouTube desktop design. The preview is available to a limited number of people worldwide that are able to use it, in order to provide feedback. Continue reading “The new Youtube”
