Amazon is hiring. If you love to fly, not literally, but rather virtually, then Amazon is the right place for you. The entire fleet of drones is ready to be launched for Amazon’s commercial purposes. All we need is to find the proper number of drone pilots, and we are good to go. Are you interested to join?
What kind of qualifications you need to have in this case? Here is the catch. You need to have enough experience as a drone pilot. Or, to be a little bit more precise, you need to have a five year experience as a pilot of automatic aircrafts. Where are we supposed to find these people? Here is the first possible idea.
Straight from the military uniform, where else? As it seems, we will have killer drone pilots delivering Amazon shipments all over our heads. Here is an additional trouble. We can expect for our sky to become an extremely crowded place. Amazon drones, Facebook balloons, and Google satellites.
Do we need more? How they plan to ensure the acceptable level of efficiency of their flying objects and quality of services? You just cannot fight the feeling that the Terminator and SkyNet scenario is becoming even more a real one. And, there is nothing we can do about it, can’t we? Beware of the drones.
Elon Musk is never bored, that is for sure. After giving us a fair warning about the Terminator real threat, he is up to something new. He plans to claim a piece of the sky, or the entire air space for his flying machines. It comes without saying that is going to be extremely crowded up there. Right?
We have some announcements in this field. Amazon and Facebook will launch drones. Google is thinking about balloons. Well Elon Musk’s Spacex will introduce micro-satellites. This miraculous solution is supposed to ensure that even the remotest areas on our planet experience the benefits of the Internet.
Great. We do not have to worry about the Internet. The only thing to worry about, though, is that something will eventually fall on our heads or houses from the blue sky. We will have literally millions of busy little mechanical bees flying around us. Who will control and coordinate this flying abundance?
Oh dear, this is really going to be something. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Elon Musk has a nice chance to materialize and unite some of his worst fears and brightest ideas. Maybe, he is our very next John Connor. The indisputable leader in our uprising against the machines.
Google in space. Not metaphorically, but literally. You probably know that Google has acquired some of the companies, which specialize in satellite and drone production. Just like Facebook, Google itself is interested in spreading the word of the Internet even to the most remote points of our globe.
Yet, with this one, it has gone a little bit further. For what is worth, Google will rent and then eventually invest in one of the NASA’s facilities. We are talking about a symbolic start, with the long term and significant consequences. For the beginning, Google needs a place to launch its satellites into space.
What can we expect next? Again, there is this pessimistic parallelism with the SkyNet and Terminator concept. For the time being, we should not worry that much. The worst thing that can happen to us is for Google satellites and drones to bomb us with ads, rather than the real rockets. Acceptable?
We sure hope there is some adventurous spirit left in Google among all of the ads and marketing oriented things. Maybe, we will live long enough to witness a discovery of some new Google called planet. Why not? The one to find can call it as one likes the most. The final countdown for Google has just begun.
Here comes a new member of the VR family. The legendary Oculus Rift has already launched the new developer’s kit #2. On the other hand, Sony still works with its Morpheus concept. Samsung wants to jump in with the VR Gear. What do you, the VR market has a nice tendency to become crowded very soon.
There is something intriguing about the Samsung’s VR idea, which you simply cannot ignore. The price of only $200 will definitely catch your attention. Unfortunately, there is a catch to this one. What could it possibly be? In order to use the VR Gear you have to acquire Samsung Galaxy Note 4 first. Disappointed?
Now, you have all numbers for a complete financial calculation in this matter. We have the initial price of $200 for the VR Gear and we have to add at least $800 or even more for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. That gives us a price of more than $1,000. This virtual reality price is a little bit hard to swallow in the real world.
It comes without saying that Oculus Rift has done an amazing deal with Facebook about its VR concept. In addition, the VR field can easily turn out to be one of the most lucrative ones in the near future. However, you have to come up with something useful and affordable, at the same time. Right Samsung?
What WhatsApp has against the Windows Phone? It is really hard to believe in some crazy conspiracy theory. Yet, for what is worth, WhatsApp literally kills the Lumia’s battery, almost regardless of the model in question. If you allow this app to run in the Windows Phone background, bring your charger with you.
According to some tests WhatsApp allowed your Lumia to move around for no more than 12 hours. On the other hand, without it your Windows Phone was able to function for an additional day. This is serious. For both Facebook and Microsoft. Something needs to be done about this problem.
But, what exactly? We keep complaining about our smartphone’s battery. It needs to be improved. We do not like them the way they operate right now. At the same time, we do not like to question all those shining apps we like to use. It comes without saying that is not a fair or a promising situation.
Maybe, the apps themselves are the ones that should go under some serious reconstruction process. Forget about the user friendly imperative. How about the battery friendly directive, for a change? What a great label that would be to find on an app you are about to download and install on your smartphone.
