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…

My Thoughts On The Latest Macbook Air 2018


Hello everyone, I am back with another post. Today, I am going to share my thoughts about the long-awaited update of Apple's MacBook Air series. Many people (including me) asked for it, and now it's here. So, let's jump right into it.

It doesn't matter if you are an Apple fan or not, you will agree that MacBook Air was a great machine (till 2016). And even after 2016, it was still a very functional device and had enough potential. It was also an ideal device for many day-to-day users, writers, photographers, designers, web-developers/ coders and many more. It was the entry-level device for those who wanted to get into macOS eco-system because everyone loves macOS except for gamers. Then it stopped getting updates, but finally, we got a refreshed version of Apple Macbook air a few days ago.


The changes that we get in the latest MacBook  Air is a better screen, i.e., Retina Display(2560 x 1600). There are 2 USB C type ports and a headphone jack. Smaller bezels, Touch ID, improved speakers, the 3rd generation of butterfly switches on the keyboard. It's also a lot powerful as it features new Intel Core i5-8200Y. The keyboard will take a little bit to get used, but I think it is a really great laptop and have potential enough to be daily-driver for a lot of people. It can do almost anything you throw on it, of course, it runs on Y-series, a processor which shows a significant difference from the Y-series processor. But still 8th gen Y-series processor is pretty powerful, it may take a few minutes more than the standard U-series processors, but unless you have millions of subscriber or you are a professional YouTuber/videographer, it won't matter. And this just comparison between Y-series and U-series, 8th gen processors are still a lot powerful. Doesn't matter if you are an illustrator, developer, or any kind or professional. All variety of tasks will be smoothly handled on this device. So, should you buy the latest MacBook air 2018?


Uh, that's little tricky. The MacBook Air 2018, comes at the price point of $1200 and MacBook Pro starts at $1300, and you get upgrades totally worthy of those. So, why don't you just buy that base version of Macbook pro? There are few differences but that this point, with the given situations, I really can't see a strong argument to choose Apple's MacBook air over pro. It's an excellent machine for a lot of people, but the price points don't allow any substantial argument to stand.
