Google working on a new weather interface and it looks absolutely awesome

Google working on a new weather interface and it looks absolutely awesome

Weather apps are one of the most commonly utilized applications all over the world and one of the most trusted ones out of them all is most certainly the default Google weather widget that comes installed in almost every Android device currently available. That being said, Google have finally decided to give its coveted weather app a complete overhaul using the all new material design which came with Android 5.0 lollipop with further improvements in the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Kindly note that this is not a new Google Now card, but the view that comes up after you tap a Google Now weather card.    Google’s new weather interface introduces a blast of vibrant colors and the little cartoon characters makes it look even more pleasing to the eye.  The “today” view on the card serves up a brief look at the daily weather conditions, with the different caricatures indicating a different weather condition on a daily basis. The “tomorrow” view doesn’t seem to show such a graphic, but it does display a colorful gradient that may vary between blue, gray and anything in between to match the mood of the day. Lastly, the 10-day tab seems to bring up a more traditional looking list of what’s to come in the days ahead. Google have really done a good job with the overhauling of one of its most widely used mobile functionalities but the one question that still remains is exactly when would this update finally be rolled out to the masses ? We’ll keep you guys updated as soon as we find out. So what do you think about the new changes ? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below and hope you guys have an awesome day. Cheers...

Hello Moto but goodbye Motorola

Hello Moto but goodbye Motorola

With a heavy heart let us all convey our goodbyes to our beloved Motorola but at the same time lets rejoice and say Hello Moto to the future !! In a major announcement made at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Lenovo, which bought Motorola Mobility from Google in 2014, is unifying its two phone businesses under the Lenovo name. It’s going to use Motorola’s Moto brand for high-end products and its homegrown Vibe brand for budget devices. The Motorola name isn’t completely gone. It will live on from a corporate perspective as a division of the Chinese consumer-electronics giant, said Motorola Chief Operating Officer Rick Osterloh. Though the iconic M “batwing” logo will remain, consumers will stop seeing the Motorola name on Moto products. Instead, they’ll be branded Moto by Lenovo. “We’ll slowly phase out Motorola and focus on Moto,” Osterloh said in an exclusive interview Thursday at the CES conference in Las Vegas. The phase-out is notable because Motorola once represented the pinnacle of wireless technology. The company did invent the cell phone, after all. At a point in the mid-2000s, you couldn’t turn your head without seeing the ultrathin Razr flip phone, which came with a “Hello, Moto” ringtone. Older folks will remember the Motorola DynaTAC as one of the first true mobile devices. But times change. Google bought Motorola’s phone business in 2012 and sold it two years later. “It’s our treasure,” Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing said after the deal. “We plan to not only protect the Motorola brand, but make it stronger.” Lenovo wants to use its corporate brand to unify the products. Phones such as the Moto X will prominently feature the blue Lenovo logo. Motorola’s iconic M “batwing” logo will still be used. Lenovo’s branding makes sense. Motorola has seen its business take a beating. Nowadays, you’re more likely to nab the latest Apple or Samsung phone than you are to look at a Motorola device. Motorola said it removed its name from the packaging in 2013. Still, some bemoan the loss of such a significant name. “Lenovo does not have a bad brand but Motorola stands for a lot, especially in mobile,” said Carolina Milanesi, an analyst for Kantar WorldPanel. “It would be a shame to move away from that.” The decision is likely a play to use the Moto lineup, which is popular with Android enthusiasts, to get people more acquainted with the Lenovo brand. While Lenovo is the world’s largest PC maker, it isn’t front of mind for phones and other mobile products. Source:...

Doctor’s save life of a 4 month old baby using Google Cardboard VR

With technology propelling to levels that seemed unimaginable just a few years back, what better then to use it to for the good of humanity especially if it involves saving human lives. Isn’t it ? Well let me share a short story that is sure to touch all your hearts. Since the last year or so, we have seen a surge in the virtual reality (or VR as its most commonly known as) trend which was mainly limited towards entertainment be it movies or next gen video games, but little did we know that it can actually help save lives. A four month old baby girl Teegan Lexcen, who was born with just one lung and half a heart has got a new lease on life after doctors in Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, Miami, Florida used Google Cardboard (Google’s take on Virtual Reality at an exceptionally affordable price of just $20) to capture 3D images of the baby’s little heart and lungs before undergoing the 7 hour surgery.  The surgeons took little Teegan’s 2D MRI scans and converted them into 3D stereoscopic images where they were able to view them in virtual reality using a smartphone placed inside Google Cardboard. Here’s what Dr. Redmond Burke, the  baby’s cardiovascular surgeon had to say,  It was like “standing in the operating room” and allowed them to examine the tiny heart and plan a form of entry 2 weeks before surgery ever began. With VR, I could see her chest wall as well as her heart. From there I could see that the standard incision would be fine. Right there the first big hurdle was crossed. Finally after the tedious 7 hour surgery, with the grace of God, little Teegan is recuperating quite well with her parents and her twin sister Riley Here’s what her relieved mother Cassidy Lexcen  had to say after her daughter’s successful surgery, “Finding out after the fact that that helped save her life, that’s phenomenal. Being innovative seems to be the goal of this hospital and these doctors and innovation saved our daughter’s life.” We wish baby Teegan a speedy recovery and hope that many more lives like her would be saved with the use of emerging technology. The parents couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas gift then this...
