– Dolby Atmos ( This is the main reason why I got this phone, you will feel like god when you listen to music, watch movies or video with good quality headsets) [+1]

It has DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) technology which you won’t get at such price rates. I can give unlimited points on this but to be biased I will give just 1 point.

Turbo Hi-Fi [+1]

– Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic

BATTERY:

This is really tricky part of this phone, as Moto X Play has heating issues and the tall claims made by company regarding battery life which will last for more than a day is false. No matter how much big battery you have even 10000 mAH battery won’t last a day if your phone has heating issues and after upgrading to MM version Moto X Play started to drain more faster. But still I have to give a point to Moto X Play just to show the bigger battery on paper.

Both have fast battery charging: 60% in 30 min (Quick Charge 2.0) but depend on the fast charger you use.

Moto X Play

Non-removable 3630 mAh battery [+1]

Last but not the least one of my fav. feature VR mode. Awesomeness is only the one word you can use here if you compare this feature. [+1]

If you buy Lenovo Vibe X3 just don’t forget to buy best quality VR headsets to get the super 3D feeling.

Now let me put the points which will prove who is the clear winner.

Moto X Play Points : 7 points

Lenovo Vibe X3 Points : 19 points

Please do tell me if I missed any point. Hope this review has helped you and made clear winner. As both are good flagship phones in it’s own way. But in the end we all deserve the best.

Do you know why power plants have such wide chimneys ?

Chimneys?

You mean these things?

These are not chimneys. Large power plants produce huge amount of heat, but use up only about half of it. They must release the remaining heat to avoid melting, so they blow it into the environment.

How do they release it?

If there is a big enough river nearby, they use the water. But if not, they build these big chimney-LIKE towers to release heat by EVAPORATING WATER. Yes, these chimneys release steam and vapor, not smoke or radiation. And why such big towers? To allow the rising steam to cool down and be able to recollect and in the next turn use it in the machinery and turbines again.

Water, in the amounts the power plants use it, is not cheap. In most cases, it’s cheaper to reprocess it than to get more of it.

Some really cool features in Cars that you’ll love to experience!

These features are absolutely incredible:

  1. BMW Brake Drying

You know when it’s pouring cats and dogs, the most common advice you hear is not to brake too hard or your car might skid? Well, BMW is ahead of the curve on that one.

Simply put, Brake Drying dries your brakes while you are driving. Activated by your windshield wipers, this new BMW system intermittently moves the brake pads close to the rotors to keep them dry and improve your stopping power in wet weather conditions – in my opinion, this should be a must have in any car because it is a brilliant safety precaution and has the potential to save lives.

2. Honda Lane-watch

Again, another innovative safety feature – Honda has placed a camera on the sideview mirror to help drivers change lanes. Instead of looking in the sideview mirror and glancing over your shoulder (problems because of the infamous blind-spot) you simply turn on your indicator (which activates the camera) and look at your center screen. The camera shows the entire lane next to you, showing you not only what’s in your blind-spot, but also offering guidelines detailing exactly how far you are from other vehicles.

Honda Lane-watch is an amazing system, and I wish all cars offered it.

3. Mercedes-Benz AIRSCARF

Don’t you just hate it when you’re driving in your convertible and you want to put the top down but it’s too cold to do so? It’s a hard-knock life, but Mercedes has found a way to make it easier.

This life-saving system is called AIRSCARF, and it is a built-in heating system that sends warm air – not from the dashboard but rather from the seats’ headrest – onto your neck, hence an air-scarf (it’s a really catchy name honestly I’ll give them that). The result is that you can stay warmer than usual when cruising around in your Mercedes convertible and can put the top down on a cold day. Game-changing isn’t it?

4. Nissan Easy-Fill Tire Alert

Out of all the systems on this list, this is the one that you will probably use the least. Nissan Easy-Fill Tire Alert pretty much takes all the guesswork out of filling your tires. When you fill up your tires, generally it involves filling it up, checking if it’s at the right pressure, filling up some more, – oops too much – taking air back out and so on until your tires are full. Sure, it’s only about once every few months that you fill up your tires, but Nissan has your back.

With this system, this tedious exercise is non-existent. You simply fill up your tires until the horn honks and the headlights light up, indicating the right pressure of air. While it is a novel concept, Nissan customers can rest easy knowing that they’ll be out of the gas station about 27 seconds quicker than their Honda rivals.

5. Subaru-Eyesight

Now this, this is an invention that I would most definetely buy a Subaru for.

The Subaru-Eyesight offers a wide range of modern features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, a blind spot monitoring system and rear cross traffic alert. Yes that’s all fine and dandy, but that’s not the real reason I would get a Subaru.

The Subaru-Eyesight basically has a feature that switches on when the car isn’t moving, and alerts you when cars around you start to move. When is this useful?

Picture this. You come to a full stop at a red light. You are the first one in line. Your phone beeps as a text message comes in. You pick it up (Disclaimer: I don’t text and drive…maybe) and read the message you received. All of a sudden, the guy behind you is honking like the world is about to come to an end because Godzilla is coming behind him and he doesn’t want to die and you look up from your phone – startled as fu*k – and you realize that he’s honking because the light turned green a second ago and then you become angry as f-

The Subaru-Eyesight beeps when the cars next to you begin moving because the light turned green so you can look up from your phone and start driving again. Get it.

6. Volvo Drowsiness Detection

This is another potential life-saving feature – this time designed by Volvo. As you can probably see from the picture, this system alerts the driver when he or she seems to be drowsy and needs to rest before continuing to drive. But how does it do it?

Well, Volvo Drowsiness Detection features a rear facing camera that scans the driver and monitors eye and head movement to see if you’re too drowsy to be driving. Chances are that at that point, you’re already aware that you are too sleepy to be driving, but it definitely helps to have an outside source confirm it, and this comes in definite handy if you’re driving alone.

These are some absolutely incredible inventions, and while some may be over the top (read: AIRSCARF), many of these are dire safety features that should be included in all vehicles.

MacOS Sierra – Everything you want to know

macOS Sierra new features: Auto Unlock with Apple Watch

Apple is putting several new features into the OS. The first announced on the night was Auto Unlock which allows you to unlock your Mac using your Apple Watch. No more typing in lengthy passwords after the screen goes off! A small addition, but no doubt will prove useful to those who have invested in the Watch.

macOS Sierra new features: Universal Clipboard

Universal Clipboard was slightly overlooked, but it is a new, great way to sync your copy and paste data between devices. This could be best put into practice with an iPad Pro and a Mac: drawing direct onto the iPad before intelligently copying and pasting on to Mac documents. This is a great way of syncing information between devices and will stop the brain-hurt of emailing yourself pictures or even sticking stuff in the cloud to download to another device.

macOS Sierra new features: Tapback in Messages app

While the macOS variant of the Messages app may be lacking in some areas (text animations and smileys aren’t available at the time of writing) it does have one very cool feature – tapbacks. Tapbacks, as introduced during the iOS 10 section at Apple’s WWDC conference, allow users to react to a text message without sending messages like ‘LOL’. In a Facebook Reactions-esque way, users can react to incoming messages by giving it a thumbs up (or down), Question mark, Heart and more.

macOS Sierra new features: iCloud Drive and Optimised Storage

iCloud Drive is also receiving a much needed update. For those of us familiar with sprinkling our Mac desktops with files that we need, rejoice – those files are mirrored on your other Macs (if you’re rich) and on your iPhone.

Optimised storage for iCloud will automatically back up older files, particularly those that you’ll never use again like cache files. It’ll make your storage go a lot further before you have to fork out for more, which is great news. It’s nice to see Apple thinking about the smaller nuances of its services.

macOS Sierra new features: Apple Pay

A further excellent feature coming to macOS Sierra is Apple Pay for Mac. Apple Pay icons will now appear on the buy pages of certain merchants – all you need do is verify your purchases with Touch ID on your iPhone or using your Apple Watch. This will be initially supported in nine countries.

Ahead of Apple’s keynote, rumours had suggested that at some point Apple will add a Touch ID fingerprint scanner to its Mac range. This more conservative way of introducing Apple Pay to the Mac still provides many of the benefits, and it’s still possible that Touch ID will eventually come to the Mac, too. However, the introduction of Auto Unlock mentioned above seems to be the solution to unlocking the Mac securely without the need for Touch ID.

macOS Sierra new features: Tabs

Tabs have also been lovingly reimagined – no longer restricted to Safari, those apps that allow for tabs now (with no developer work needed) will allow you to multi-tab.

macOS Sierra new features: Picture-in-Picture

Picture-in-Picture mode allows you to thumbnail view photos and, more impressively, videos from certain apps while doing other things. So long, productivity! Although, for those who work in video editing, features like this will be another Godsend.

macOS Sierra new features: Apple File System (APFS)

Now while this may not be as appealing as many of the other features of macOS Sierra, Apple’s new proprietary file system is worth a mention. Why? One of the most exciting features of the new file system is space sharing, which helps partitioned drives utilise space on the fly. Let’s say you had a 1TB drive with two 100GB partitions, with one nearly full and one almost empty. In this situation, space sharing wouldn’t limit the almost-full partition, and would instead note that there is 800GB of free space (the total free disk space) for both partitioned drives. Essentially, APFS treats the partition limits as containers that can be expanded when required.

Duplicated files won’t take up any extra space either – if you duplicate a 2GB drive it wouldn’t take up 4GB, instead the copy would access the original version. Then, if you make changes to the oriignal version, the new data is copied to a separate block preserving the original state.

Essentially, the new file system should make your macOS life a little easier behind the scenes.

macOS Sierra new features: Siri for Mac

After all the little bits and pieces, Apple showed us what we were hoping for – Siri on a Mac. A particularly useful and impressive feature that was demoed live on stage was searching through documents using Siri. The voice assistant will also let you be far more flexible with macOS Sierra – you’ll be able to image search online with Siri, and have the ability to drag and drop those images directly into a plethora of apps.

Siri is already on iPhone, iPad and even the Apple TV, so it was only a matter of time before Siri came to Mac too. After all, Microsoft already has Cortana in Windows (and has done since Windows 8.1) and Chrome has Google Now.

Is Google Assistant better that Siri ?

  1. When I asked why it has no fancy name.
  • Bartholomew is an English name derived from Aramaic name meaning “son of talmai”.
  • Where Bar is Aramaic for son and marks patronym (name derived from name of father or ancestors).
  • Talmai comes telem “furrow” or is a herbrew version of Ptolemy or filius.
