Google Introduces Voice Guided Turn-by-Turn Navigation for Pakistan

The big fascinating news has finally come. After real time traffic updates Google Introduces Voice Guided Turn by Turn Navigation feature for users in Pakistan. Currently in beta version, now the Google Navigation is offered through Google Maps to the users so anyone with an Android phone and having the latest version of the Google Maps application should be able to use it. Not to mention, previously the turn-by-turn navigation — that was available for users in Pakistan — was rather manual and didn’t offer automatic voice-guided navigation.

This time it has changed and with a new proper navigation system has introduced for Pakistan, users will be offered automatic guidance based on their real-time location and turn by turn details through voice commands.

When in navigation mode, your phone screen will remain lit all the way with voice guidance for any alerts or turns ahead. Voice guidance will also alert you of any real-time events, such as traffic jams or in case you take a wrong turn.

Now we know that what those phone holders are really used for.

The updated feature that has been rolled out is similar to what Google offers in countries like United Stated or United Kingdom. It introduces the following functionality:

  • Dedicated navigation mode
  • Offline navigation (will require you to download specific area offline first)
  • Real-time location update and route determination
  • Search your route for restaurants, petrol stations and etc.
  • Voice guidance system

How-to activate the new navigation mode?

As mentioned above, Google’s improved Maps Navigation is offered for latest version of Google Maps on Android. Simply accept “Google Map Navigation” terms and you are in.

There are no special requirements for opting in to the new Google Maps navigation mode. Just follow the following:

  1. Search Google Maps for the location you’d like to go to.
  2. Tap the car button (on the bottom right) to see the route.
  3. Finally, tap the navigation button (on the bottom right) to start the navigation mode.

For the first time, you’ll see a prompt telling you that the Google Maps Navigation is currently in beta and that you should be careful when driving. After that, your phone will enter into the navigation mode as expected.

Apple Tests Ultra-Fast LiFi Technology For iPhone 7

What is Li-Fi Technology?

Li-Fi, a next-generation technology invented by Professor Harald Hass of the University of Edinburgh in 2011, is capable of transmitting data via light (i.e. Visible Light Communication or VLC). The thing that makes Li-Fi so compelling is its fastest data transferring speed.
“LiFi is a wireless optical networking technology that uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for data transmission. LiFi is designed to use LED light bulbs similar to those currently in use in many energy-conscious homes and offices.”

 

Li-Fi tests have shown it can transmit information more than 100 times faster than a standard Wi-Fi network, with theoretical speeds of around 224 gigabits per second.
This means that you could download multiple high-definition (HD) movies to your iPhone over a LiFi connection in a matter of seconds.
However, it is unclear how Apple intends to make use of LiFi, as, at the present, no technology on the market uses LiFi. So, it could be used for talking to devices, say the Apple TV, within the same room. This is just speculation.

Code found within the iOS 9.1 mobile operating system suggests Apple may be looking to include ultra-fast LiFi technology in next generation iPhones.

Apple is thought to be experimenting with an ultra-fast alternative to Wi-Fi for use in future iPhones, after references to the technology were discovered within the code of the iOS mobile operating system.

Li-Fi, often referred to as the next big leap in wireless data transfer, offers speeds up to 100 times faster than Wi-Fi. First invented by Professor Harald Haas at the University of Edinburgh in 2011, the technology sends data using visible light communication (VLC).

Researchers have achieved speeds of 224 gigabits per second using Li-Fi under laboratory conditions, which would theoretically allow for 18 HD movies to be downloaded in a single second. Other advantages it holds over Wi-Fi are less interference between devices and improved security over local networks, as light cannot pass through walls. The latter benefit also acts as a restriction and means that while Li-Fi is unlikely to ever completely replace Wi-Fi, it could be used in parallel to create more efficient networks.

Apple to make future iPhones compatible with a cutting-edge technology that has the capability to transmit data at 100 times the speed of WiFi, suggests the code found within the iOS firmware.
Apple may ship future iPhones with Li-Fi capabilities, a new technology that may end up replacing the widely-used Wi-Fi in the future technology.
Beginning with iOS 9.1 update, the operating system’s source code makes mention of “LiFiCapability” alongside declarations to other hardware and software capabilities, hinting that Apple may be experimenting with ways to integrate Li-Fi technology with future iPhones models.

Li-Fi compatibility with Future iPhones

Li-Fi compatibility was spotted in the code for iOS 9.1 by a Twitter user, who goes by name Chase Fromm, and was independently confirmed by Apple Insider. However, there is no such indication that Apple is actually working with Li-Fi.
But, as pointed out by Apple Insider, Apple filed a patent application for a device in 2013 that described a method of “optical modulation using an image sensor,” hinting that the company may have been working on new ways to utilize light to transmit data.

New Computers can use only Windows 10

Windows 10

Well its actually ridiculous idea the Microsoft made to their Windows support policy.

Now the question arises why Microsoft doesn’t want to allow new computers to work with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 ?

Microsoft says new processors will work only with Windows 10.

Windows 7 and 8.1 won’t be updated for future processors, starting with Intel’s Skylake latform.

Soon, when you buy a new PC, it won’t support Windows 7 or 8. Microsoft has announced a change to its support policy that lays out its plans for future updates to its older operating systems, and the new rules mean that future PC owners with next-generation Intel, AMD, and Quad core processors will need to use Windows 10.

It’s not usual for old PCs to fall short of the minimum requirements of a brand new operating system, but in this case, the opposite is happening. Microsoft and its partners will not be putting in the significant work necessary to make new hardware work with older versions of Windows. They will work on the new technology that Windows 10 have. The old operating systems, at best, will merely lack the latest updates. At worst, they might not function properly.

Important notes:

  • Windows 10 Home users will receive updates from Windows Update automatically when it’s available. Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise users will have the ability to postpone updates. The amount of time that Windows 10 Pro users can postpone updates is limited.
  • Small storage devices, like devices with 32GB hard drives or older devices with full hard drives, may need additional storage to complete the upgrade. You’ll see instructions during the upgrade telling you what to do. You may need to either remove unneeded files from your device, or insert a USB flash drive to complete the upgrade.
  • Some devices with either little free space available or smaller hard drives, like 32 GB storage PCs, may have little free space available after upgrading. You may free up disk space and easily delete files like temporary files or your previous version of Windows within the Storage system setting. Files for the previous version of Windows give you the option to remove Windows 10 and go back to your previous version of Windows. These files are automatically deleted a month after you upgrade. To free up space, you can delete them now.
  • An internet connection is required to perform the upgrade. Windows 10 is a large file — about 3 GB — and Internet access (ISP) fees might apply.
