  • The smartphone is so important to some people that they would dive into the sea to retrieve it, pay monthly insurance premiums for its’ safety, and have it with them 24/7. Despite this widespread attachment people of the modern world have for their smartphones, recent reports on smartphone shipments for 2018 revealed sales were the lowest since the communication revolution began. How can this be so? Is it a once off, or the beginning of a trend? Speculation on this led to the following five reasons to explain why. Market Saturation There are so many smartphones available today that the big guys might have to start dropping their prices. We all know they don’t cost as much to make as they do to buy, and except for some parts, what we are paying for is branding. Die-hard fans will disagree explaining why (insert brand) is the only one to have. Perhaps with so many choices, we were just slower to choose, and many of us chose not to choose at all. Your Stash in the Drawer The pay-as-you-go users aren’t as common as the contract users, who get upgraded within 24 months. As smartphones are sophisticated pieces of technology that allow you to run a business using just that gadget in your hand, they can last longer than 24 months, provided the user is not clumsy. This means many people have two or three in a cupboard, safe, wardrobe or drawer, in various states of disrepair, and didn’t want to buy another one last year. Decent technology lasts As smartphones have been around for over ten years now, they’ve lost their novelty factor, and have become necessities. Queues to buy the latest (insert brand) no longer snake around corners. The reality is that even the phones from three to four...
  • 82% of financial institutions are expected to increase their fintech partnerships over the next three to five years with some already investing in artificial intelligence to enhance either their customer relations or banking processes. This is great news for customers interacting with banks and other financial institutions on a regular basis. However, there are personal apps that are available that help individuals directly manage their money and grow their wealth. While both of these innovations, the kinds that banks are working on and the kinds that individuals engage with on their smartphones, are a part of financial tech, the latter is revolutionizing the way people manage their personal finances in a great way. Discovering the Practical Uses for FinTech High-end technology with artificial intelligence and smart learning abilities all sound great, but there are often times when there’s no real practical use in various industries. This is not the case for financial tech, which is enhancing money management in a big way. The most innovative changes have really been in the form of everyday applications that are free and easily accessible on a wide variety of platforms. These applications leverage smart technology to help users track their spending, form budgets, access financial planning tools and even invest their spare change. Robo-investing apps exist, for example, that allow people to access investing tools that previously weren’t accessible by the general public. The app provides insight into various trading categories and helps users create low-risk, high-return portfolios simply by investing the spare change on each purchase they make with a card. Another app provides a way for individuals in debt to access learning resources that train and equip them with the knowledge they need. This is revolutionary. But why? Accessible Wealth Management Tools Spread the Wealth Previously, wealth management tools and financial resources were only available to...
  • Self driving cars aren’t quite here yet, though there is a lot of exciting, emerging tech debuting now in the luxury car world. From Tesla’s Autopilot to the Mercedes-Benz partial driving automation system, safety-assisted driving and self parking are already here. And remote controlled features that sync with smartphones are enabling drivers to start their engines, set the temperature and even fold down the seats to make room. But for those who cannot afford to buy the latest luxury model car or truck, which let’s face it is most of us, there’s still a lot of tech hacks we can employ to get more comfort, convenience and safety out of our vehicles. Remote Controlled Safety Features No matter if you have a old beater or a reliable modern car, any average driver can turn their smartphone into a helpful safety device. GPS technology is standard in any smartphone for navigation, but it’s also great for locating your car. Apple has a built-in setting for this in iPhones when paired with CarPlay or a Bluetooth in the car. And any Android or Google Maps user who’s prone to forgetting where they’ve parked in crowded lots or city streets can set a pin as they park their car to be able to locate it later. There are also Smartphone enabled devices that track everything from tire pressure to check engine light triggers to the location of your child’s car. The Fixd Car Health monitor is a great all-in-one. Precision Parking While self-parking technology is still developing, drivers who are intimidated by crowded city parking or are upgrading to a new truck and want to maneuver it like a pro, can install a number of small tech devices to making parking smooth and easy. Sensors like the Park Zone PZ-1600 Precision Parking Aid alert you when the front of your vehicle is nearing...
  • Education is one of those universal fields that can make use of literally anything in order to explain things. For example, if necessary, you can perform a history lesson with hand shadows to drive the point home. Education is also happened to be the field where the use of modern technology is required to deliver the best possible learning experience. The combination of these two factors makes the implementation of augmented reality application into the learning process seem to be like a surefire decision. According to The App Solutions study, Augmented Reality technology presents an opportunity for the Learning process to become more effective for teachers and more engaging for students. Why AR is a viable option for Education? The reason why AR can be so beneficial to the education process lies in the very nature of AR. The thing is – Augmented reality technology is designed to amplify the existing working procedures. The purpose of AR is to expand upon the available material by bringing more information to the surface in a convenient form of floating comments, animated sequences or interactive models. Here are five ways Augmented reality can make the learning experience better. 1 Expansion of the Learning Process One of the major issues of the learning process is its disengaged, routine nature. It is passive and that is a big turn-off for many students. Augmented Reality is able to expand the learning process beyond the passive perception of information transmitted by the teacher or as read in the textbook. AR application can provide a wide array of tools that will make the process of understanding of the concepts and its mechanics far easier and more interactive (more on that below). For example, AR can show the inner workings of the human body in a more detailed manner....
  • Everyone can relate to the horror of a computer crashing at the most critical moment, such as when you’re about to save a very important file you’ve worked on all day or if your computer freezes when you’re just about to start an online job interview. Then, the computer screen goes black (or blue).   You may try to restart it as many times as you want, but if there’s something wrong with it, no amount of power cycles can help. It’s time to send it to the computer doctor. If this hasn’t happened to you yet, don’t wait until it does. Unless you’re a master in IT, don’t try to DIY a repair, or else, you may end up losing everything you have in that computer. Check out how to help you with your computer needs.      Knowing when to send your computer for professional computer repair is key. Heres what you need to watch out for. 1. Super Slow Speed There could be nothing more annoying than slow computers especially if you have the most expensive Internet package. This will result in an unproductive stressful day. If running updates and cleaners don’t help, you need a professional computer repair service; getting upgrades that are not compatible with your system will do more harm than good. You may also have a computer virus that you need to get rid of before getting your files and information compromised.It could also mean that your system needs more space to function better. You can either add memory if it’s still possible or get a new computer with a higher memory capacity or a more modern and faster processor. 2. High Temperature This is common on laptops. You can quickly determine if a laptop gets hot fastor if it’s blowing hotter air than usual. If...
  • Measuring someone’s heart rate is simple today – even a smartphone can do it. Just pick up your Samsung Galaxy S5 (it’s a four years old model), run S Health, put your finger on the camera, and wait – it will measure your pulse with no issues. From here to more complex life-saving tech there is a long way to go, you might say, but we are headed in the right direction. Tech giants all over the world are building their newest gadgets with health monitoring in mind, and they will soon release their new line of life-saving smartwatches and more efficient fitness bands for us to try. The Apple Watch is not the first life-saving device that might come to mind… but it may become in the near future. Apple has reportedly patented a new way of measuring the users’ heart rate, basically turning the device into an EKG unit. According to the patent description, the users will have to squeeze the device between their fingers for it to send a weak electric current through the heart that will track the organ’s function and detect any irregularities. Rather than simply collecting data through a basic heart rate monitor, this new sensor would be able to collect more in-depth data and perhaps even predict “future afflictions”. Apple has recently given up promoting its smartwatch as a luxury accessory and seems to shift toward its life-saving and health-monitoring potential. Apparently, the Cupertino giant wants to shift at least partially on the Apple Watch as a medical device. At the same time, Samsung also wants a slice of the med-tech cake for its own Gear series of wearables. A report has recently surfaced of the South Korean tech giant patenting a new sensor that can measure the wearer’s blood pressure. While gadgets...
