What noise does a penguin make

Article Contents1 The Good2 The Not So Good3 Software and battery life3.1 Alexa4 Design5 Conclusion I love watches and wear one all the time. So I was one of those who got really excited when the first smartwatches started hitting shelves, and I remain someone who likes them. I have owned a few Android Wear devices, a couple of Pebbles, and I've even tried out the Apple Watch and various iterations of Samsung's offerings over the years. What I have not tried, until now, is the so-called "hybrid smartwatch." Martian is not an unknown or new brand, but I have never had the opportunity to test out any of its products. I finally have rectified that. The Martian mVoice series of smartwatches is trying to compete with the likes of Wear, Tizen, and watchOS by offering a wrist-mounted notifications mirror while keeping a sense of style. Each watch in the product line comes with Alexa, who handles voice queries similar to the wearable versions of Google Now/Assistant or Siri. All of … [Read more...] about Martian mVoice smartwatch review: Having all of the features does not always make a good watch

LUNAR fans are excited to observe the latest new moon, which is in the sky during the afternoon of March 17. But what does a new moon mean and what’s its significance in the lunar calendar? We’ve got the lowdown. What is a new moon and does it have a spiritual meaning? In astronomy, a new moon marks the first lunar phase. The original meaning of the term is the first visible crescent of the moon, which is briefly visible when it's low above the western horizon just after the sun has gone down. As a new moon represents the start of a new lunar cycle, it symbolises new beginnings. People use the energy of a new moon to achieve their goals or start on a new project. They also reflect on their old goals and set themselves new ones. Are there new moon rituals? Some like to harness the energy of the new moon in order to fulfil their visions. One way you can do this is by lighting a candle or some incense in a quiet space where you can relax. Write down what you want from life and … [Read more...] about What does a new moon mean?

Apple is trying to catch up. Not only is it beefing up its phones with "neural engine" chips to power AI efforts like augmented reality and machine learning, it's also building out its Siri team. The company recently listed 161 open positions and hired Carnegie Mellon's Russ Salakhutdinov last year to head up AI research. Earlier this week, Apple confirmed perhaps its most important hire yet in the space: former Google AI chief, John Giannandrea.According to Apple, Giannandrea will head up Apple's "machine learning and AI strategy" and report directly to CEO Tim Cook. Seeing as Giannandrea was responsible for making AI central to Google's overall strategy, his new role as Apple's AI lead seems to indicate Siri might be getting a serious makeover. And maybe, just maybe, Siri might just learn a few of the following Google Assistant tricks in the process.Better SearchWhen it comes to search, it'll be difficult for Apple's Siri to really go head to head against Google Assistant, simply … [Read more...] about What Siri can learn from Google Assistant
What does a free coupon really cost? Internet commerce practically runs on coupons, coupon plugin, vouchers, and promotional codes, with a number of dedicated sites, platforms, and tools like Honey and InvisibleHand to help you save at checkout. It’s a marketing tactic dating back to the 19th century, when Asa Candler used coupons to help popularize the beverage company he bought, “distributing thousands of coupons for a complimentary glass of Coca-Cola.” Obviously Candler’s efforts were a success — perhaps you’ve heard of Coca-Cola — and today there are very few e-retailers that don’t offer the chance to “apply a code” before buying something online. Plenty of savvy users take this opportunity to do a quick Google search for an easy way to save some money, with millions of codes posted and available for free on a multitude of websites. More savvy online shoppers don’t even search for coupons … [Read more...] about What does a dollar-saving coupon plugin really cost?
Robots can already complete a wide variety of tasks for their human overlords, but they may soon be about to conquer the final frontier: making pizzas. As first reported by ZDNet, Little Caesars has received a new patent for an "automated pizza assembly system," or what is essentially a robot that makes pizza. SEE ALSO: Pizza Hut vs. Domino's vs. Papa John's: Trash Pizza, ranked The patent describes it as "a robot including a stationary base and an articulating arm having a gripper attached to the end is operable to grip a pizza pan having pizza dough therein." The robot will then rotate the pizza pan through "the cheese spreading station" and the "pepperoni applying station." The patent claims that the robot and its stations will "properly distribute the cheese and pepperoni on the pizza." This patent isn't all that surprising, when you consider how quickly the entire fast-food industry has moved toward automation. Establishments like McDonalds and Wal-Mart already have robots … [Read more...] about Little Caesars patents a pizza-making robot
Fans of the Horsehead and Crab nebulas, take note: There's another giant galactic animal on the scene. Two interacting galaxies about 23 million light-years from Earth look just like a penguin and its treasured egg in a spectacular new image that combines data from NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes. The penguin is NGC 2336, which was probably once a fairly conventional spiral galaxy that looked a lot like our own Milky Way, NASA officials said. [Strange Nebula Shapes: What do YOU See in These Pictures?] "Rich with newly formed hot stars, seen in visible light from Hubble as bluish filaments, its shape has now been twisted and distorted as it responds to the gravitational tugs of its neighbor," the officials wrote today (Feb. 1) in a description of the newly released photo. "Strands of gas mixed with dust stand out as red filaments detected at longer wavelengths of infrared light seen by Spitzer." That neighbor is the "egg," a galaxy known as NGC 2937. There's no … [Read more...] about Galaxy Duo Looks Just Like a Penguin Guarding Its Egg (Photo)
It’s certainly exciting to wander the CES show floor, eyes peeled for crazy new technologies that you couldn’t possibly have imagined. What’s more exciting, though — at least for us — are the technologies that aren’t wild concept cars or giant race-ready robots, but products and innovations primed to make an impact on our lives in the here and now. For years, the dream of a fully realized “smart home” has pervaded CES exhibitions; everything can be controlled by voice now, and the idea is that connecting every appliance in your house to a single network will make life simpler, allowing you more time to spend doing things you love. At least, that’s the tagline. Interestingly, televisions have largely eluded the smart home bubble — not that they aren’t “smart” (they have been for years), but in a sea of Alexa-enabled mirrors, voice-controlled windows, and smart smoke detectors with built-in speakers, … [Read more...] about TVs want to be the center of your smart home, but does that really make sense?
