The RAM Dilemma

Posted on

Perhaps you have noticed it by now. The IOS can work just fine with the 1 GB RAM memory. On the other hand, Android needs 2 or even 3 GB RAM just to do the same thing. Who or what is to blame for this additional trouble? For what is worth, the usual suspect in this case is very likely to be the Java itself.

In addition, we should mention the so-called garbage collection process. Android consumes large memory quantities through the recycling of memory when you handle and close your smartphone apps. The IOS is a completely different system, and therefore it does not ask so much memory from you.

Yet, the Android itself is indisputably the most popular and widely used mobile OS in the world. The IOS has a quite different elithistic approach, which is followed by the appropriate price policy. Everything has its logical cause and effect in the world of smartphones. So, what are we supposed to do?

You cannot fight Java itself. There are so many things we owe our gratitude to Java. We usually take them for granted, but the truth is that our cyber world would have looked unimaginably different without Java. At the end, it all comes down to a personal choice between an apple and a funny little android man. Right?

FB News Feed, Less Ads Bleed

What do you Facebook is actually willing to listen to its users. As a result, we are very likely to go through some significantly more humane treatment of the ads on this social network. This is a little bit refreshing and surprising at the same time. So, what is this supposed to mean? What are your thoughts on this one?

At the same time, we should use this one as an obvious indicator of our future action. There is no major online service, which gladly and willingly turns against its feeding sources the almighty ads. On the other side, you cannot fight the overwhelming pressure of your frustrated and tired customers.

Maybe, this is a small, but extremely important victory of the users, who are still resisting. And, we are not yet fully aware of it. It would be a nice thing, if we could raise a cyber revolution with this one. We certainly cannot eliminate, but we should decrease the number of ads circulating online.

Otherwise, we can end up being blackmailed. This is exactly what is happening with YouTube. If you want to watch your favorite video with no ads, then you have to pay for it. Google is leaving you no other choice. Maybe, there are not enough people to complain there. We cannot say for sure.

The Crazy A

So, how do you like to call it? The “@”. It is such an inevitable symbol we take for granted by default. For the absolute majority of nations and cultures the monkey is the very thing to cross the mind. In numerous forms and variations, of course. The monkey tail, very often. Or, the little monkey, which is a simpler form.

For some people this is a crazy letter A. Yet, it seems that we are completely unaware that this is an ancient symbol. Long before the computers begin to roam the planet this funny letter was doing its homework. Where and for whom? Believe it or not, the monks in the sixth century used it for some other things.

The @ was used to make a clear distinction between the Latin phrases such as “ad” and “AD”, which was a huge deal back then. Why have we decided to use it again centuries later for something quite different? This is at least to say a mystery, but it works just fine. This is how the little monkey has become our best friend.

What is the moral of this story? Well, we could not find one that would be suitable at this moment. How about you? Any ideas? For what is worth, let us question some of the most recognizable concepts in our good old cyber world. We would be surprised for sure what is there waiting for us to find it.

Uncle Amazon Wants You

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.

A Bitter Taste Of Lollipop

There is only one thing certain about the Android 5.0 or better known as the Lollipop. Instead of sugar it is filled with controversy. Google is saying one thing, but we are experiencing something quite different. Let us start with the battery first, shall we? It comes without saying what is this for each smartphone.

It is the Achilles’ heel, that is what it is. It is not a rocket science, but it is extremely painful. Ask any smartphone user, if you want to know more. On the one side, we have quite a few reports, which are describing the Lollipop as a battery killer. On the other side, Google wants to assure us that this is a battery’s best friend.

What about the security? With the new Android 5.0 you can simply forget about the rooting of your device. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. However, we are quite worried about the problematic message. It is just like Google is saying to us, relax, we will take care of it all. You are not supposed to do a thing about it.

So, what is the real truth about Lollipop? Well, as always you will have to try it first-hand, and then see for yourself, if it is worth it. In this case, and this one comes as an unwritten rule, our expectations are our worst enemy. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about it. It is in our nature.

Deregister iMessages, Register A Truce

What is this supposed to mean? The tide is turning and the things are changing. On the other side, you just cannot fight this bitter feeling inside yourself. Why? Because, all of your troubles could have been resolved easily, if some busy little bee in Google or Apple had a little more consideration for your situation.

Still confused? One of the worst cyber sins in the world of smartphones is to move from Android to IOS or vice-versa. You have probably heard terrifying stories about users, who have gone through a living hell during these transition periods. The providers treated them as traitors, mercilessly.

As a result, you had missing data, deleted messages, lost contacts, and similar. You had to leave your ex IOS life behind you while moving to Android,.completely. And again, vice versa for a transition from Android to IOS. Why this sudden change? What is Apple telling us with this surprising kindness?

We are lost to tell the truth. Now, it turns out that it is not such a big deal to move from one mobile platform to another. Correct us if we are wrong, but we think that Google is doing something similar for the Android users, as we speak, or better to say write. Let us call it a truce, shall we? How hard can it be.

Spacex Strikes Back

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.

Nadella Nutella

So far we have had the announcement wars between Apple and Google. Who is better, stronger or smarter. It turns out that Microsoft has decided to join the party. Satya Nadella has something to say. Let us hear him out. Maybe he has something of life changing importance to share with us. Ready?

For Nadella the Apple is all about apples. Or, in other words, this is a hardware company, primarily and dominantly. Apple is all about its devices. Take iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, as an obvious example. On the other hand, Google is a mean marketing machine. All about Google eventually comes down to ads, and ads only.

So, what is happening with the grandpa Microsoft? It is supposed to be all about software. Right? Well, according to Nadella this cannot be true. Why? Because Microsoft puts you as a user in the very center of its universe. Is this good enough for you? Do you believe a word he says? Is this too much to hear?

Well, if we are to follow blindly the IT Triumvirate, there is nothing to worry about. With so many companies dying to please all we have to do is relax and enjoy. They will take care of it all instead of us. Then, do you hear this song in the background. It goes something like, why does my heart feel so bad?

Google + NASA = ?

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.

The YTMK

Music is the key. It has always been. Ask YouTube. There is a new service in our cyber town, and it is called the YouTube Music Key. This key is supposed to unlock the music door for “only” $9,99 a month, or $7,99 in beta version. So, what are you supposed to get in return for this money?

Well, first of all, you can listen music or watch your favorite video ads free, which is definitely a great thing. On the other side, you can enjoy music with or without the Internet. Even when your screen is licked the music will play in the background. Let us not forget to include the Google Play Music.

More than 30 million songs are supposed to make this choice of being easy for you. Will the YouTube Music Key work for real? That is not the right question to ask. How much is enough for Google to earn, and for us to pay, in order to make both sides happy? Now, you see what is the trouble with this one.

Who knows, maybe this musical trouble will give birth to some brand new music service. This way it sounds almost like a blackmail. Either you will pay, or it is the ads highway. Let us wait and see, what the users themselves have to sayy about this one. That is the only thing that truly matters. Right?
