WSJ reviews the iPhone 6s: great performance, fine camera, but no battery life improvement

As the iPhone 6s review embargo fell, crashed, and burned, the authoritative Wall Street Journal published its review of Apple’s new flagship smartphone. Things seem perfectly peachy for the 6s, as expected from an iterative upgrade over an already successful product, but author Joanna Stern did land some righteous punches at Apple’s historically stubborn noggin!

According to her, not only is there no battery life improvement over last year’s model, but the iPhone 6s Plus lasted only 20 minutes longer than the 6s, despite carrying a higher capacity unit. We cannot comment on the publication’s …

Google’s new Chrome 45 now faster, uses less RAM and improves Battery life

Google’s new Chrome 45 is more efficient and improves battery life

Speed is one of the basic principles of Google Chrome. The Chrome web browser started out as one of the least memory hungry browsers in the market, however, over a period of time, the browser had started using up a lot of RAM space. Therefore, in order to make the browsing experience more faster and efficient especially on desktops and other low-end devices, the search giant Google has released a new update known as Chrome 45.

According to Google’s Chrome blog, the update Chrome 45 promises to improve RAM usage, the overall performance of the browser, speed up the launch time, and reduce battery usage.

Chrome has long had the option to “continue where you left off” by restoring tabs when you relaunch Chrome. Now, Chrome restore your tabs more efficiently and the browser opens those tabs first that you most recently looked at saving your time. The new Chrome also now detects if your computer is running low on resources, and automatically stops restoring tabs in an effort to save memory. Just click to refresh later, if necessary.

Google has also taught Chrome how to identify when a webpage is idle, and use that free time to clean up memory that is old and not been used.

“In practice we found that this reduced website memory usage by 10 percent on average, but the effect is even more dramatic on complex Web apps,” wrote Product Manager Ryan Schoen in a blog post.

“On Gmail, Chrome 45 freed up nearly a quarter of the memory used by the tab—’a significant improvement compared to Chrome 43′,” Google said.

The process of improving reloading seems to have been inspired from a Chrome extension introduced in May. The Great Suspender automatically suspends unused tabs after a certain user-specified time, until the user clicks on them again.

Flash has always been an issue with resources. In June, Google had announced a new setting would be introduced to auto-pause Flash content that’s not central to a website. Chrome 45 has a default setting that pauses unwatched Flash-based content. Google found that implementing this feature can save up to 15 percent of a user’s battery life. Flash media on Web sites that was previously manually enabled under that setting is now frozen unless it is found that it is the main content being viewed. The Google team plans to make this feature on by default for all users over the next few weeks.

“As the Web evolves and sites take advantage of increasing capabilities, Chrome’s performance — how fast pages load, how smooth scrolling is, how much memory is consumed, and how long your battery lasts — becomes even more important,” Schoen said in his blog post. “This latest version of Chrome includes the most recent wave of performance updates, but there’s much more in the works for upcoming versions of Chrome.”

Chrome 45 is available for desktop users of the browser now.

Apple iPhone stops a bullet, saves the life of a 24-year old student

The Apple iPhone can do many things. Add “saving a life” to that long list. Last Monday, a student at California State University, Fresno was returning to his apartment at around 11pm when a mugger pulled out a gun and grabbed his computer bag from behind. A struggle ensued and the gun went off. Luckily for the 24-year old victim, the bullet bounced off of his iPhone, saving his life.

The student did not want to be identified since the mugger remains at large. The student’s roommate told the local press that the victim was shaken up. “The jeans was tore and he showed me his iPhone … and …

Oppo R7 Plus aces our battery life and charge tests with best-in-class longevity

Believe it or not, a thin phablet with 4100 mAh scored one of the best continuous screen-on times in our gruelling battery life benchmark test. The new Oppo R7 Plus is not only one of the most elegant big-screeners we’ve seen, 2.5D display and all, but also managed to keep its lights on for nearly 10 hours with the screen lit, and running our standardized testing pattern. This would translate to about two days of normal usage from the phablet, which is great news for those that are eyeing Oppo’s latest puppy.

As a reminder, the R7 Plus features a 6-inch …

NASA’s photos of Mars: Signs of life or imagination running amok?

Bizarre Mars photos: Does alien life really exists?

The NASA photos taken by the Mars Orbiter and the Curiosity and Opportunity rovers sparked speculations of alien life existing on the neighboring planet. While there are continuous debates wherein alien hunters and UFO enthusiasts push the idea of proof of life on Mars (and elsewhere), while NASA continues to maintain that there has yet to be confirmed proof of alien life found on Mars (or anywhere).

Bizarre Mars photos: Does alien life really exists?

Conspiracy theorists for years have been keeping a close watch on the photos that have been transmitted back to Earth by NASA probes and “discovering” strange objects that they say proves the existence of extraterrestrial activity on Mars. For example, lizards, mermaids, petroglyphs, artifacts, jelly donuts, traffic lights, and various other somewhat recognizable objects all appears to exist together in the open dusty spaces of the red planet.

Bizarre Mars photos: Does alien life really exists?

The latest arrival, where the alien hunters cited that the evidence found is that of a crashed rock shaped miniature spaceship on Mars.

Bizarre Mars photos: Does alien life really exists?

“I found this anomaly in the latest Curiosity Rover photo. The black object looks like a crashed UFO,” writes Scott C. Waring on the UFO Sightings Daily website.

The craft is only about 2.5-3 meters across, so it probably only held a few passengers. Since many of the figures we found on Mars are about 5-8 cm tall, then we can conclude that his [sic]ship could carry about 20-40 passengers.”

Bizarre Mars photos: Does alien life really exists?

Perhaps too far sighted but not as far as the discovery of a giant Martian crab in early August or for that matter the “strange woman” appearing briefly at the Curiosity rover last month or like the levitating rock in June.

One NASA scientist says there’s a perfectly good explanation for these sightings. Speaking to CNN, Ashwin Vasavada, a scientist who works on the Mars rover project, said that much of “sightings” suggest a psychological process known as paradoleia, or the brain’s recognition as familiar objects or patterns things even though it’s not actually there. For instance, cloud-shapes, face of a man in the moon, seeing the image of the Virgin Mary in a grilled-cheese sandwich, or even a tiny woman wandering around Mars.

Bizarre Mars photos: Does alien life really exists?

“We have color HD cameras on this rover that far exceed anything ever sent to the planet before, and yet in order to find these things that kind of trick your brain into thinking it’s a mermaid or whatever, you do have to zoom in where it’s kind of a fuzzy shadow at that point,” he added.

Bizarre Mars photos: Does alien life really exists?

Remembering the photo of a tiny woman wandering around Mars, he said “That photo was up in a place we are studying, a place we call a ‘geologic contact’ where there is a lot of sandstone next to mud that formed at the bottom of an ancient lake.”

“Now, three billion years after that happened, little drifts of sand are following down the hill … when you zoom in and kind of look at the light and shadows, it does look like a little figure of a woman,” he admits. “But she would be a few inches tall and hasn’t moved in months, so we don’t think that’s what it is.”

Bizarre Mars photos: Does alien life really exists?

It is very interesting to see how people’s imagination work claiming the things they see in Curiosity’s photos, Vasavada says. However, his team does not take them seriously, he adds hoping that NASA will discover signs of intelligent life on Mars in the future.

In fact, many of the “alien” objects found in the photos taken by other NASA explorers and Curiosity have been quite small. Ironically, a recent study indicated for those searching for alien life, particularly intelligent alien life, when found would be quite a bit larger than the average human being.

“There is no group that would be (happier) to see such a thing than the 500 scientists around the world who work on this Curiosity rover,” he says. “So far we haven’t seen anything that is so obvious that it would be similar to what these claims are.”

“We have no evidence of Martian iguanas or rats at this time,” he says. “One of the best things we found is that Mars could support life, (but) if anything we think it’s microbial life that’s possible at this time. Things like rats and iguanas would be way further up the food chain that we think Mars may have ever gotten to.”

Just the other day, Vasavada says someone on the Internet “found a place where a meteor had struck Mars while we were there roaming, so that is pretty fantastic.”

For Vasavada, the bizarre thing about the thousands of photos taken by Curiosity is how they are not really strange at all.

“The thing that keeps coming back to me every single day is how un-weird it is, how much it looks like Earth,” he says. “It’s just fascinating that (on) Mars, even today, you can see the landscapes formed in similar ways that deserts and other places on Earth formed. It’s kind of mind-blowing.”

It is not as a overwhelmingly impressive find as a Martian; however, Vasavada recommends patience.

“We are working our way to answering what is a very difficult scientific question,” he says. “It’s unfortunately not going to be as easy as seeing a mermaid in a picture.”
