Smartphones have been used for years without the stylus used to support touch screens, since the fingers of the user were enough for that. Samsung Galaxy Note 5 also incorporated this feature, but it is not a good idea, because misplacing it could damage the phone.
The S Pen, which is a stylus in which the Galaxy Note 5 is equipped, is theoretically a very useful tool. This is a business phablet that runs graphical software and various financial statements, which are much easier to navigate with a thin pen.
It may, however, cause problems for the users of this smartphone, especially the more absent-minded, who accidentally inserts them into the opposite casing than it should be done. The editors of the Android Police website have shown what will happen if this happens. Then the stylus not only locks into the casing and can not be pulled out, but also stupidly detected system, which causes the smartphone to stop working properly.…
Every smartphone owner knows how engrossing attention is writing SMS. At the same time writing and moving the sidewalk, you are asking for serious bodily injury caused by falling into a pillar or other people. In Antwerp, special belts were designed for people writing messages while walking.
Walking around crowded pavements of large cities requires extra caution and respect for the surroundings, otherwise you might fall for someone. Much worse are people who can not even break away from their phones, constantly writing text messages. In their case, the risk of injury is much higher and some people end up with a broken lantern or other decor.
In Antwerp, it was decided to protect such people, leaving on the sidewalks in the busiest part of the city special belts for SMS writers in motion. Interestingly, this is not a government initiative, but the idea of Mlab, which believes it can reduce pedestrian injuries in this way.…
Modern gadgets have become part of our lives and are so ubiquitous that we sometimes feel overwhelmed by them. The debate over positive or negative features of technology can lead to infinity, but it seems that one area of our lives is severely affected. Our dream
Interestingly, although all age groups use new technologies, a study of 4700 people from seven countries indicated that mostly young people indicated that sleep problems were related to continual networking.
It does not seem strange if it was in the younger group of respondents that there were more adherents to holding the phone under the pillow.
Apart from subjective perceptions, there are also quite scientific premises for assuming that screening does not coincide with our natural daily cycle. The fact is that modern appliances, equipped with LED screens, emit so-called “blue light”. The receptors of our eyes receive this phenomenon just as our ancestors received it, sending a message to the brain that it was already morning. It is easy to imagine how such a signal in the morning can confuse our biological computer, especially after a full day of fatigue. Blue light blocks the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that supports natural sleep.
It’s not just a theory, experimental research has shown that people using orange goggles who filtered blue light during bedtime use had a higher melatonin level than they did without them.
In this case, scientific evidence goes hand in hand with a common sense approach – what is too much is not healthy. And notifications from facebook friends can wait until morning.…
Virginia is the first American state to have legalized delivery robots. In a few months, the first such machines will be able to legally start their work, carrying out various kinds of goods.
The future of courier services does not appear in bright colors. In a few years, everyone will lose the job of replacing the machines, either flying drones or delivery trucks moving on the ground. This future, in spite of appearances, is closer than we think.
Last week, Virginia’s governor signed a new law that legalized terrestrial delivery work, allowing them to navigate the sidewalks and pedestrian crossings. Machines can not, however, travel at a higher speed than 16 km / h and exceed 22.5 kg.
Rules that will come into force on 1 July will allow such machines to move completely on their own. This does not mean, however, that they will operate unattended. To minimize the risk of collisions, regulatory authorities require each operator to have a remote monitoring system.…
The US Navy Investigations Bureau has launched an investigation against the founders of one of the private Facebook groups. The group served to distribute naked female servants in the American and British armies.
The media informs the investigation launched by the US Navy’s Bureau of Investigation, which manages the Marines United-based Facebook. It was revealed that it was primarily used to share pictures of naked women serving in the army. And their dissemination was handled by US and British military forces, including the Marine Corps, Navy Corpsman and the Royal Marines.
Although the main activity of the group was a discussion on military issues, it was dominated by pictures and videos of naked girls: from the photographs of the uncensored women who had been unaware of it to the intimate material whose publication was motivated by vengeance. So far, over 20 women have been identified by name and position.
The investigation includes hundreds of soldiers, and at the same time many accounts on Facebook and Google Drive, belonging to people involved in the case, have been closed. Some have already been expelled and dismissed from their posts.…
