Weekly Tech Roundup for December 13th, 2019

“This is why I loved technology: if you used it right, it could give you power and privacy.”

Cory Doctorow

“The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life.”

Bill Gates, Co-founder of Microsoft

“As a technology, the book is like a hammer. That is to say, it is perfect: a tool ideally suited to its task. Hammers can be tweaked and varied but will never go obsolete. Even when builders pound nails by the thousand with pneumatic nail guns, every household needs a hammer.”
 James Gleick

From the quotes above from those remarkable individuals, it is obvious that the impact technology has in our world today and future to come, cannot be denied. We intend to expose you a bit to the ever developing nature of tech, via our blog.

We included some snippets from our daily knowledge development sessions, just to give you a little extra knowledge. After all, knowledge is never enough. Take your time and digest every one of them. The world is fast evolving and so should your mind.

Tech Snippets

This looks like it will be a game changer.  Biodegradable Helmet that can fit into your pocket.  No lugging about the bulky helmet anymore.  I wonder if it has half the strenght of the traditional ones. – BA

Apple’s new standalone app, called Research, is an effort to collect information on three common aspects of people’s health.

Twitter Security 

Twitter has changed its security settings to let you use two-factor authentication (2FA) without having to give the service your phone number. Back when Twitter relied on SMS to send users their six-digit 2FA codes this requirement made more sense, but now that it allows them use authentication apps or security keys, however, asking for phone numbers is increasingly unnecessary. – OAT


Today, Alphabet’s X moonshot division (formerly known as Google X) unveiled the Everyday Robot project, whose goal is to develop a “general-purpose learning robot.” The idea is that its robots could use cameras and complex machine learning algorithms to see and learn from the world around them without needing to be coded for every individual movement. – OAT

The launch of Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service has been an absolute mess, overpromising and underdelivering at every turn — but at least those gamers who put their faith in Google can actually play now. Google just tweeted that it has finally delivered access codes to everyone who purchased the $130 Stadia Founder’s Edition — some of whom were sitting around with useless Stadia gamepads, waiting for the ability to actually be a “Founder”, until today. – OAT

Google Update
Google today launched a nice new Assistant feature called My Storytime that lets parents simulate reading to their kids when one parent is away from home. A parent will be able to record themselves reading chapters of stories, and the other parent (or babysitter) can ask Google Nest to read those recordings to the kids. – OAT

AI Chip For Cancer Drug

A giant, superfast AI chip is being used to find better cancer drugs. A new generation of specialized hardware could make drug development and material discovery orders of magnitude faster. AI has changed the game. Deep-learning algorithms excel at quickly finding patterns in reams of data, which has sped up key processes in scientific discovery. Now, along with these software improvements, a hardware revolution is also on the horizon.
