Neuralink: Elon Musk Another Venture

Hello everyone, this is the second post of 2020. Also, the first one in Feb (wrote in Feb but published in March). So, I officially lagging behind my 2020 target. But, I have some reasonable excuses and other projects in the pipeline to blame. However, today we will be talking about a very interesting company called 'Neuralink'. It's currently working on the brain-machine interface. I know it's a topic that can make you overwhelmed pretty quickly. But, bare with me and we will together try to grasp those concepts. What is Neuralink? So, what the heck is Neuralink? It's a company founded by Elon Musk and is currently working on brain-machine interface research. The long term intention for Nueralink is to help us achieve symbiosis with AI. And, to provide us with a way to get along in this super fast-changing world. More on that later. Before you raise your eyebrows and start imagining a dystopian future, some real-world scenarios can be achieved shortly. In simple t…

Samsung S9 & S9+ : my thoughts


Recently, Samsung dropped out its flagship smartphone S9 and S9+. And here I am for you with a review on it. So, let's jump right into it.

Benchmark:-

(benchmark scores from Geekbench 4)




Pro(s):-

1. Camera:-

This is maybe one of the first smartphones that allow you to adjust aperture. Many of the Go-pro(s) don't do it. It's a really impressive camera. The software for shooting videos is updated, it helps to record slow motion videos and improves UI. One of the best reason o buy.

2. Headphone jack:-

If you want a flagship smartphone in 2018 with the headphone jack, then just buy it.

3. Sensor Positioning:-

The fingerprint sensor is placed right under the camera, which is more accessible and easy use.

4. Bumped up spec:-

Samsung S9 have slight but still bumped up specs. So, if you are looking to upgrade from an older phone, you can give it a shot.



Con(s) :-

1. Not much of an upgrade:-
There is not much of a difference between S9 and S9+. In fact, Samsung S8 is pretty close enough to these flagships.

Conclusion:-

This is not a bad phone but it's not much of an upgrade. If you recently bought a smartphone, then I would suggest you wait for few months. But if you have a smartphone which old like a couple of years then, this is a good choice for you because all the hardware is bumped up and you might end up loving it. Don't forget about the awesome camera it has.
