Problems With iPhone X You Need to Know

Apple’s changed the entire dynamics of the smartphone industry with its launch of iPhone X back in 2017, taking over the tech markets by storm. In fact, it was one of the most awaited releases of the year by iPhone as it was the first device in the iPhone range to get rid of the iconic home button and come with a new and innovative organic LED (OLED) screen. However, this high-priced iPhone X comes with quite a few faults, ranging from fast battery drainage and fragile back glass, that are hard to ignore especially when you’re spending a fortune to buy the device. 

Being an iPhone X owner, you must be aware of these issues so that you can take the necessary steps to overcome them and ensure that your device performs optimally. In case the problems persist, you can visit the Apple Store to have them sorted out. However, having your iPhone X repaired through the Apple Store can burn a hole through your pockets so we suggest that you visit a reliable repairing service like BREAKFIXNOW to get the work done at affordable prices. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the most persistent and prominent issues you’re likely to face in an iPhone X. 

Short Battery Life 

Although Apple claims that the battery of its iPhones can last all day long, it’s no secret that they have very unreliable battery life. In fact, if you ask any iPhone user what feature of their device they would want to be improved, we are sure that 80% of them will answer battery life and performance. iPhone X is no different and while Apple has taken many measures to improve the batteries used in iPhone X, it still has a lot of shortcomings. You can, however, take certain measures to improve battery life and make it last longer. Some of these include regulating the temperature of your iPhone X, managing background app activity and turning off unnecessary features that you don’t need.

Slow Charging

Another issue that most iPhone X users complain about is the slow charging of the device. Not only that but people also face issues around wireless charging as there have been reports that it doesn’t work properly or the phone doesn’t charge at all in some cases. This may be a result of a software fault in the system or a hardware fault in the charging port or the battery but no matter what the reason is, you should first ensure that the charging cable and adapter are not damaged. After ruling that out, we recommend that you have your phone checked by a professional. 

Freezing Screen

Although Apple came with a lot of advancements in the touchscreen technology by introducing an OLED in iPhone X, these advancements were accompanied by a fair share of issues as well. Screen freezing is referred to as the frustrating occurrence of unresponsive display when you’re using the device and unfortunately, you may have to deal with a lot of screen freezing in iPhone X. There may be times when you need to use your device urgently and its screen freezes so under such circumstances, you can try force restarting your iPhone. This, however, is a temporary fix so there are chances that you will still be facing screen freezing issues unless you opt for a permanent solution by going to a professional repairing service. 

Screen Burn-Ins

Another display related issue that most people face in iPhone X is of screen burn-ins where an image or its outline is embedded into the display (sometimes permanently) when it is viewed for a long period. Even Apple acknowledged this issue and officially stated that it is possible to experience image persistence and burn-ins in iPhone X. To prevent this, keep your screen brightness at a lower level and turn on display auto-locking. Keep in mind that screen burn-ins can permanently damage the display of your device so it’s important to take the precautionary steps to prevent them from happening.

Dysfunctional Face ID 

A prominent issue in iPhone x that has been reported time and again is that its Face ID does not work properly and in some cases completely fails to work and unlock the phone at all times. If the Face ID does not work at all, you may need to get your camera unit replaced so that it is able to recognize your appearance. Otherwise, make sure to keep the notch at the top of the screen clean at all times and scan your face under good lighting to ensure that the sensors and camera are working properly to recognize your appearance. 

These are only some of the major issues you’re expected to face in an iPhone X. Other problems that you may notice are speaker crackling at high volumes, call dropping, fragile back glass, and unresponsive touch screen. However, remember that iPhone X comes with an array of impressive features ad benefits too which neutralize the shortcomings and make it worth every penny.

Bear in mind that these are only some of the problems you might face with your iPhone X. Other issues include, but are not limited to, call dropping, GPS not working properly and touchscreen being unresponsive so you should brace yourself for those too.

FUNAI Android TV

Funai further expands range of Android TV devices in North America with 2K, 75-inch and Hands-free voice control later in the year

Funai Corporation, Inc. today announced the expansion of their 2019 Android TVTM device line-up with the Google Assistant. The range will be extended with small screen 2K 5505-Series and large screen UHD 5704-Series, and in the second half of 2020 with the Hands-free voice controller 6705 Series (43- to 75-inch). All products will be available in the United States and Canada. The 5-Series features seven display sizes ranging from 32-inch to 75-inches, and the 6-Series offers five displays ranging from 43-inch to 75-inch — and all will be unveiled at CES 2020, January 7-10, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Users can access over 500,000 movies and shows and over 5,000 apps and games from the Google Play Store (Subscriptions may be required for certain content providers.) Easy-to-use voice search and personalized recommendations mean users spend more time being entertained and less time hunting for something good. With Chromecast built-in, users can easily cast movies, shows, and photos from their Android or iOS device to the TV.

The new Android TV 5-Series televisions all include the Google Assistant, with a Google Assistant voice button on the remote control, allowing customers to do more with their TV. The Google Assistant allows users to quickly access favorite movies, shows, or music with their voice. Easily find and enjoy vacation photos on the big screen. Control devices around the home like dimming the lights from the comfort of the couch, or asking your personal Google Assistant questions and get answers, including the weather report or sport scores. Users can even manage tasks like viewing their schedule and adding appointments without picking up another device. Just press the Assistant button on the remote to get started.

The 6-Series televisions include an integrated far-field, echo-cancelling microphone array giving users hands-free voice-activated access to the Google Assistant, so there’s no need to touch the remote control to control your TV.

How to Start a Successful Online Dating Business 

It’s extremely difficult to find a reliable partner in our fast-moving world, and statistical data confirm this fact. According to the recent census, almost more 43 percent of adult American population are singles. The reasons behind these threatening figures vary, but most singles admit that they find themselves unable to fit relationships into their hectic life. It takes much time to meet someone, get to know him/her, court, and adapt your life so that you can meet the needs of a new partner. That’s when online dating comes in handy. Though presently a good many people still don’t consider online dating as serious and conducive to forming long-term relationships, more and more lonely hearts desperate for love take advantage of online dating services.

 According to Camsoda dependable review, an online dating industry’s revenue is forecast to reach almost 20 million dollars by the end of 2020, which is suggestive of users’ skyrocketing interest to online dating. Needless to say, the industry in question can be a perfect source of income to those who know how to make the most of it. If you’re determined to set up an online dating business, you need to be knowledgeable about the subtleties of this industry and ready to face up to difficulties and pitfalls that are just bound to arise as you move on. In our todays article, we’re going to tell you how to maximize your business potential and create a profitable online dating site that will set up millions of lonely people. 

Research the Market. Find Your Niche 

You must know that the very conception of online dating has been redefined since the advent of dating applications. Such apps as Tinder, Hinge, League, and Bumble are convenient, easily accessible, and versatile and currently making massive inroads into the online dating market. The developers promise that their apps will help your find a perfect match and build valuable relationship. No wonder, more people now tend to rely on freemium apps for finding their significant others. As for the more traditional monthly paid subscription dating sites, there’s a noticeable decrease in their popularity. That having been said, you don’t need to give up the idea of building your online dating business right away. If you’re a total stranger to web development and it’s beyond you to create your own unique dating app, there’s still a chance to succeed in setting up your online dating website.   

First of all, you need you need to know the market you’re about to enter. Therefore, it’s critical that you do extensive research into it. Get to know your rivals, familiarize yourself with the range of services they provide to find out what makes people choose exactly them. Once you identify your target audience and research your niche market, you’ll need to come up with some unique ideas and marketing strategies that will help you set your services apart from other competitors and attract users. Consider creating an online dating site for specific tastes or fetishes. Remember Uniform Singles that successfully brings together people who wear uniform at work (e.g. military or police officers, doctors, firefighters). You can also locate a gap in the market you’re aiming at and come up with something unique and non-trivial. Thus, you’ll be able to occupy the niche that has been hitherto vacant. 

Make Your Users Like You 

No matter what your site’s users prefer, they are always looking for one and the same. All singles dream of finding a person who would keep them company if not creating a lasting connection with someone. So, make sure to create a welcoming, user-friendly environment for your visitors. In other words, make them like your website. There are lots of those people who are still hesitant about using online dating services or have previous bad experiences. The onus is on you to show them that online dating can be easy, fun, and just as real as real life dating. Allow your visitors to express themselves. Let them share their thoughts, opinions, and desires. Don’t impose strict limits and don’t scare off new users with charging them too much for your services. Remember that currently only about 16 percent of people are willing to pay for online dating services. With that in mind, you’ll need to invent a strategy that will help you attract clients without and at the same time won’t rob them. You can offer free trial subscription for, say, the first month. It’s also a good idea to roll out discounts and limited time bonuses for both new users and loyal clients. Finally, you can opt for a freemium model. But if you grant all users a free membership, you’ll need to think about some other ways in which you can attract income. Most online dating business owners that don’t charge annual or monthly subscription fees, rely heavily on advertising revenue, which can be a good option for you, as well. You can also consider affiliate partnership as a source of additional income.  

Understand the Importance of Software 

It’s a rare website that can thrive with an amateur-looking interface, lack of technical support, and poor moderation. Therefore, you should be prepared for forking out on all those things to ensure proper operation of your website. Hire an experienced web builder who knows how to code, understands design and it able to implement such essential functions as instant messages, navigation, spam detection, image and on-page optimization, e-commerce, link building, etc. Thus, you’ll be able to earn your users’ trust and make them want to come back. 

Promote Your Business

Furthermore, don’t forget about marketing your online business. It’s a good idea to start a blog you’ll be updating with unique content relevant to services you’re providing. Thus, you’ll be able to advertise your website in an unobtrusive and subtle manner. If you want to give your product instant reach to billions of active users start promoting it on social media. Don’t just provide links to your product. Interest your potential visitors with an appealing intro text and ask your current users share their reviews and impressions about your services with others on social media. Thus, you’ll be able to interest and reach out to a wider audience and attract more people willing to find their love online.

How to Save Money with Electric Cars

Last year, over 200,000 electrically powered vehicles were purchased in the United States of America, and most consumers give one simple explanation for making the switch from gasoline powered cars; money.

Though electric cars can have a slightly higher sticker price than their internal combustion engine counterparts, they can offer drivers huge savings on fuel costs and maintenance. As vehicle charging stations have become more numerous, and home vehicle charging options have gotten better than simply sticking a plug in an outlet, electric vehicles have become more and more popular with consumers.

Here we are going to look at some of the ways that drivers are saving money by using electric cars, and how you can join in and start saving yourself some money too.

At a Cost-Per-Mile, Gas-Guzzlers Cannot Compete

The biggest saving that drivers of an electric car make is on the cost of fuel per mile. Even the most frugal internal combustion engines cannot begin to compete with fuel efficient electric vehicles.

Some electric car manufacturers offer free charging for their vehicles at selected charging stations, so gas powered cars have no chance to match those savings, but even electric vehicles that are charged at home or at charging stations that require payment offer drastically lower fuel costs. For electric vehicles, the cost per mile is often measured in cents, not dollars.

Less Maintenance, Fewer Trips to the Mechanic

Another area that driving an electric car can save you money over a regular gas-guzzler is in the cost of regular maintenance and trips to your mechanic.

The internal combustion engine is incredibly complex with hundreds of moving parts that require adequate lubrication, and the fuels and oils it uses need topping up and fresh filters. The drivetrain that powers electric vehicles couldn’t be more different, with most electric motors only having one moving part. This drastically reduces maintenance costs, and the possibility that one small part will fail on your car and keep you stuck indoors while a mechanic fixes your engine. 

You Can Generate Your Own Electricity at Home

Imagine if you owned an oilfield. You would be much less concerned about the cost of fuel if you could just fill up your own car from your own supply of gasoline.

Many owners of electric cars are doing something similar to this by generating and storing their own electricity at home with solar or wind power and home battery packs. This electricity is essentially free, after the cost of the equipment, saving owners of electric cars even more money. 

Some electricity suppliers will even offer their customers discounted electricity rates when it is used to recharge electric vehicles, saving them even more money.

The price of gasoline is constantly increasing, as well as the cost to the environment that gas-guzzling, carbon-emitting cars produce. When you take a look at all the savings that driving an electric car has to offer, as well as the environmental benefits, it is easy to see why hundreds of thousands of American drivers are now making the switch to electric vehicles.

Tech Companies To Watch Out For In The Next Year

By now we should all be familiar with the pace of technology, one of the last great frontiers for the entrepreneur. Even though it doesn’t occur to us in the moment, new innovations continue to shape our world from year to year.

Compare the year 2020 to the turn of the century. In the first two decades of the 21st century, we’ve gotten used to social media, 3D printing, blockchains, eBooks, CRISPR gene editing, online streaming video and the wide-scale adoption of mobile phones. Likewise, we started the new millennium not knowing the names of Facebook, Spotify, YouTube, Uber, AirBnB or Twitter.

What do the coming years bring? Our best economic and technological forecasters have picked a few rising stars in tech innovation who just might sculpt the next horizon in industry.

StartApp

We’ve all heard of marketing companies collecting data on mobile users to use as research on user behavior, but StartApp simply has more data than anybody else. Tapping a billion active mobile users every month across 350K apps, StartApp anonymously logs this user data and then packages it for sale to companies to help them make better decisions about development, user interface design, and marketing. Having grown from $200K to $37 million in revenue, StartApp is poised to be the Amazon of customer service information.

Nauto

While we were all anticipating the advent of driverless cars, still a hazy future promise, it occurred to our AI scientists that the experience of driving just isn’t documented enough to teach it to a robot. Nauto is one company helping to fix that, by building an autonomous driving data platform. Using cameras both exterior and interior, Nauto systems track both the road conditions and obstacles and the driver’s reactions, showing us what we respond to and how fast. It’s also aimed at reducing driver distraction and fatigue. With over $1 million in investor funding raised so far, the company aims first to enable better driver-assistance technology, before aiming at removing the need for a driver completely.

Evisort

Evisort is simple to explain: It’s “Google for contracts.” Except, rather than just automating text search, it’s an expert system trained for the legal profession, allowing it to parse out key dates, names, provisions, limitations, dollar amounts and legal clauses. This turns out to be a huge part of the day for anybody working in the legal profession, where the average lawyer might handle dozens of contracts numbering 30 pages or more per week. Human contract review is costly, time-consuming, and prone to errors, so an automated AI for contract management is something every legal worker wants. Evisort has raised over $5 million in investor funding and been praised in both Forbes and Harvard Law Review.

CloudBeds

The hospitality industry has been late to the party of industries changed by technology, but its turn has come. CloudBeds is a smart business management software for hotels, with an end-to-end platform that handles the unique challenges of property management and booking together with business management. The result is that hotels run better and make more money. Hotels, being a future-proof industry that online commerce can’t replace, are going to be around for a long time, and CloudBeds raising $20 million in investor funding shows that they’re going to be offering something every hotel wants.

SnapChat

The most senior member on this list, SnapChat has been in business for most of the 2010s, but it’s the social network platform with the brightest future. Just as Facebook took the crown from MySpace, everyone’s been counting the days until Facebook finds itself left behind by the next generation of web users. But which social network will it be? With a user base approaching 210 million people across 22 languages, SnapChat is a social network geared for the mobile platform and more favored by younger generations.

Conclusions…

Much of the technology in recent years is driven by the advent of large data and deep learning methods in artificial intelligence. There are many more industries that can be innovated to the same degree that the above list has been – aspiring entrepreneurs take note!

PIRELLI × 5G NETWORK

PIRELLI: DEVELOPS WORLD’S FIRST TIRES THAT INTERACT WITH THE 5G NETWORK

CYBER TIRE DETECTS AND TRANSMITS INFORMATION RELATED TO LESS THAN OPTIMAL ROAD SURFACE CONDITIONS TO THE VEHICLE AND OTHERS NEARBY THROUGH THE NETWORK

Pirelli is the first tire company in the world to transmit information detected by intelligent tires regarding the road surface via the 5G network. The company presented the “World-first 5G enhanced ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) services” use case. The demonstration took place during “The 5G Path of Vehicle-to-Everything Communication” event organized by the 5GAutomotive Association, of which Pirelli is a member.

Pirelli, Ericsson, Audi, Tim, Italdesign and KTH together staged a demonstration that took place on the roof of the Lingotto building showing how a vehicle equipped with the sensor-fitted Pirelli Cyber Tire and connected to the 5G network was able to transmit the risk of aquaplaning detected by the tires to a following car. This was thanks to 5G’s ultra-high band and low latency.

The tire is the only point of contact between the vehicle and road and, thanks to the technology which Pirelli is perfecting, it communicated with the vehicle, driver and, was transmitted by 5G, with the entire roadway infrastructure. The Pirelli Cyber Tire, equipped with an internal sensor, will, in the future, supply the car with data relative to the tire model, kilometers clocked, dynamic load and, for the first time, situations of potential danger on road surfaces, from the presence of water to poor grip. This information will enable the car to adapt its control and driving assistance systems, greatly improving the level of safety, comfort and performance. In addition, it will provide the same information to other cars and the infrastructure. Thanks to the potential of 5G, Pirelli is able to place the tire inside a wider communication context which involves the enter ecosystem of on-road transportation, actively contributing to the development of solutions and services for future mobility and systems of autonomous driving.

This year Pirelli also presented its Italia Track Adrenaline, a product for lovers of track days, which includes a line of sensor-fitted P Zero Trofeo tires. Track Adrenaline is a true track engineer in virtual form, which monitors tire pressure and temperature in real time and combines this information with telemetric data to provide the driver indications and suggestions on how to improve his or her on-track performance.

The “sensoring” of tires is an integral part of Pirelli’s “Perfect Fit” strategy, focused on the development of “tailor made” products and services to meet the needs of carmakers, fleets and drivers in general, with a view to the future and the changes underway in mobility.

Things You Should Never Ignore When Looking for Broadband Deals

If you are not a tech savvy person, the idea of changing your internet could send cold shivers through you. If you are not that way minded, how can you find the best broadband and phone deals? The adverts make all the deals sound perfect. Perhaps these pointers will help you see through all the glitz and sparkle and get down to what really matters about your broadband deal.

There are key factors you should never ignore when searching for a new broadband deal, such as:

Advertised Speed

There is often a huge difference between the advertised speed and actual speed received by the users. Most broadband providers advertise the speed that is the maximum received by its users during peak hours. This speed is not even received by half of the users and the half does don’t experience it all the time.

To resolve the speed issue opt for a code of practice that clearly indicates how much speed you will receive on an average and also what the minimum speed will be. Being able to refer to the provider’s own code of practice helps if you are constantly receiving speed lower than the minimum range and there may be compensation.

Broadband Only Deals

Most broadband deals come with a landline service because you need a landline to use it. There are very few broadband-only deals and they are often expensive. It’s always a better idea to opt for broadband and landline deals rather than broadband-only.Even if you are not using it with a broadband and landline deal, you have to pay the rental charges. Sometimes this cancels out the discount but there are still offers around.

Glitches of Limited Data

Broadband deals with limited data are much cheaper than unlimited data deals. But beware, these limited data deals cost way more in excess usage.

Whenever you opt for a limited data deal and your use exceeds the limit, you have to pay a good price for each extra Mb. The sum of these charges for extra Mb sometimes exceeds the cost of the unlimited data package.

In the era of online gaming, streaming, surfing it is almost impossible to stay within data limits. This is the reason now most of the broadband packages come with unlimited data and they are not much more expensive. So instead of constraining your use and checking used Mb every now and then, it’s better to opt for a broadband deal with the convenience of unlimited data.

The difficulty for gamers is a problem any of us could face in the future. It’s real easy to find your household demand for smooth, reliable internet access outstripping your provision and find yourself paying as much in extra charges as you do your subscription or perhaps worse, suffering with a jumpy, buffering connection. It’s an easy fix. You can upgrade your contract at any time and without any interruption to your service. Providers are more than happy to jump at the chance to make more money. A quick phone call, and a bit more cash is usually all it takes.
