Published

on

Motorola today launched its latest Android One smartphone, the Motorola One Action in India. The smartphone was unveiled in Brazil a week before. It comes with a unique industry-first ultra-wide action camera with the “Action“ tag in the name referring to the sensor.

The device comes with a triple camera rear setup but the third sensor is a special one. It is a dedicated 16MP ultra-wide sensor with a 117-degree field of view capable of shooting videos like a Go-Pro. The camera is rotated because of which you can hold the handset vertically while recording horizontally (and vice versa). It is equipped with a software-side algorithm called “Enhanced Video Stabilisation”.

Motorola One Action

The Motorola One Action sports a 6.3-inch CinemaVision LCD display. It has an FHD+ resolution of 1080×2520 pixels, 21:9 aspect ratio and a punch-hole at the top left the corner. It is powered by an Exynos 9690 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage with further expandable memory up to 512GB via a microSD card.

The other two sensors at the rear are ordinary 12MP and 5MP sensors. It has a 5MP selfie camera on the front placed at the display hole. The handset is released as a part of Android One program with Android 9 Pie meaning it has no ads, third-party software and will get regular updates. All this is backed by a 3,500 mAh battery with 10W charging. Other features include NFC, 3.5 mm headphone jack and IPX2 water resistance.

Price and Availability

The Motorola One Action is priced at Rs 13,999 in India. There will be two color options: Denim Blue and Pearl White and will go on sale via Flipkart on August 30 at 12 PM. As for launch offers Flipkart is giving 3 months no-cost EMI, Rs 1,000 discount on Axis bank credit and debit cardholders and a cashback of Rs 2,200 from Jio in the form of vouchers, along with an additional 125GB data.

At this price, it will be competing against mid-range smartphones the Mi A3, Realme 5 Pro, and the Redmi Note 7 Pro. But its unique ability to shoot videos like an action camera set it apart from the competition.

Entrepreneur and DJ: Meet Christian Deciga

Everipedia is the “encyclopedia of everything” of the internet. It can be viewed as an extension of Wikipedia, but it varies in a few notable ways. It is the more open alternative to Wikipedia that Paul Graham, founder of Y Combinator, requested be built in his “Startup Ideas We’d Like to Fund” blog in July of 2008. Everipedia provides incentives for editors to edit and create articles actively and ensure that they are accurate. Editors are rewarded with “IQ,” which is a cryptocurrency and the basis of the blockchain platform that Everipedia is built on. Apart from rewarding editors for their contributions, Everipedia also generally focuses on articles that Wikipedia deems “non-notable”. They do not believe in censoring any topics and offer more relaxations in their guidelines than English Wikipedia. Additionally, since this is a global decentralized encyclopedia built on the EOS.io blockchain, it means that the government cannot censor the website’s content. Presently, Everipedia has over a million page views a month, global active editors in places such as Nigera, Venezuela, and Korea.

Everipedia may have millions of visitors to the site now, but this was not always the case. Early on in their journey, the founders of Everipedia had difficulty finding investors and driving traffic to their website. This was when Christian Deciga stepped in. In October 2015, while studying to attain a bachelor’s degree in computer science at California State University, San Bernardino, he met Mahbod Moghadam and Sam Kazemian of Everipedia during a tech talk at nearby Cal Poly Pomona in October 2015, Deciga became interested in the project. In December of 2015, he dropped out of university and moved into the company’s first headquarters in Westwood, Los Angeles (PH2 at 972 Hilgard Ave. on UCLA campus) to become a founding member and work on the project full time. Due to clever ways of making Everipedia articles go viral without paid marketing on social media platforms, and other unique tactics, Deciga helped drive more traffic to the website during its early days. With his efforts, soon Everipedia began to see millions of page views a month. The growth had spiked from less than 80 concurrent users on Google Analytics to over 1000 users concurrently. Everipedia articles were also being used as sources by news publications (The New York Times even cited an Everipedia entry during President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign). He was dubbed “Christian Christ”by Mahbod Moghadam as his tactics helped bring traffic to Everipedia. Hence, Deciga’s efforts and work ethic gave Everipedia a fighting chance that it needed to take off to the next level and reach milestones.

With the help of Deciga’s efforts, the founders had data and impressive traffic numbers to show to their investors. By the end of that same year, the Everipedia team grew bigger and better, and the Westwood penthouse was filled with people working on this project.

Now, with a 30 million venture investment from Michael Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital Fund backing the project, Everipedia has plans to continue growing internationally and further its mission based on knowledge and DeFi (decentralized finance). The founding team, which includes Deciga, has plans to launch more decentralized dApps on the IQ network.

The latest dApp released on the IQ network is an easy to use prediction market called PredIQt. The knowledge market allows users to purchase and trade shares in the outcomes of future events. Users can earn money by correctly predicting whether or not any given event actually happens.

In addition to powering a decentralized global encyclopedia, the IQ token now also powers knowledge markets and the additional DeFi applications that will be built into PredIQt.

But this is not all for Deciga. Apart from being an entrepreneur and investor, Christian Deciga is also an electronic dance music producer and DJ who is receiving producer mentorship from his North Garland High School classmate and established EDM artist Juyen Sebulba of the duo Psycho Boys Club signed to Yellow Claw’s Barong Family label.

What Irritates the Outlander Series Actress Claire Fraser about her Co-Star?

Published

on

It is obvious that co-stars working with each other for so long will have problems with one another. The Outlander franchise presents such a case.

The Outlander season 5 ended with lots of stuff going on causing its fans to be dumbstruck whether it’s the kidnapping and rape of  Claire Fraser ( Caitriona Balfe) by Lionel Brown  (Ned Dennehy) or being her family plotting against themselves. But as it came out to much surprise for the fans, there is a lot of stuff going between the members behind the scene too.

Based on the books of  Diana  Gabaldon the series’ first season was premiered by the STARZ network in 2014. The story is a pretty decent blend of historical fiction, romance, and especially science fiction which tingles a sensation for all those sci-fi enthusiasts.

The story is about a married combat nurse from the great war who mysteriously time travels back to 1743 where her life is threatened. The protagonist is trapped in two different time frames centuries apart. She must do everything possible to stay alive. With its five seasons released it had become one of the most popular shows by STARZ. The success and popularity of the Outlander franchise is now forcing its producers to plan of making its spin-off.

The fifth season of the series is rather devastating for the fans as well as for the protagonist Claire( Caitriona Balfe) as she was kidnapped by Lionel Brown  (Ned Dennehy)  and raped, all because she educated Lionel’ s wise about reproductive health who was being abused by him. This hurt Lionel’ s manly ego which caused him having grudges with the protagonist. She was by her husband but later on even before everything could remain calm for a while, it was seen that her family members were working against themselves.

What Irritates the Outlander series Actress Claire about her Co-Star?

But these conflicts don’t remain hidden out for long. It is obvious that two people working with each other so long will have issues. The issues will come out in public someday.  Caitriona and Sam were asked about the stuff they don’t like about each other. Responding to this query  Caitriona said: “His timekeeping can sometimes irk me when I’m left standing waiting for him quite often.” However later she even confessed that due to her bossy attitude maybe irks him about her. She added, “I probably boss him around a bit so that probably irks him about me.”

But she also revealed that she and Sam sorted things between them early itself. She said: “But we made a very conscious decision in the very beginning when we started the show that we were the only two people who would understand each other’s experience.

She believes that they have worked and supported each other throughout the series. She said”And that we had each other’s backs throughout this because we didn’t know what it was going to be, but we knew that we had to stick together as a team. We have done that and it’s so important.”

Claire appreciates that she had such a partner in this series.”I can’t imagine having done a show of this magnitude for this long without having a partner with us, and it’s made it easier 100 percent, and I’m very grateful for that.”

Anna Kendrick’s Love Life Episodes Are Now Hitting HBO Max A Lot Sooner?

Published

on

Love Life is the first scripted series for adults to go out on the HBO Max streaming service. It is amiable, light, and – flaws aside – easily bingeable.

What do we know about Love Life?

The story focuses on Darby played by Anna Kendrick. She is a young woman whose perfectly rom-com career rise in the art musuem and auction-house world in New York City.

We then follow Darby from her feckless and underemployed youth toward an adulthood marked by a bit more melancholy. This, with a lot of care.

 

“Love Life” is amply watchable. The Magnus plotline’s sprawl defying the rules the show itself has set forth. It kind of  epitomizes this : He’s a character more compelling than anything else on screen. But his awfulness makes Darby’s ongoing tolerance seem beyond relief only if there weren’t so much time to fill and she weren’t a central character who’s defined by her lack of definition.

The series is too low-fi to generate the sort of fireworks for the HBO Max launch that, say,” The Morning Show” did for Apple TV Plus at launch . It is also not quite a HBO show.

What do we know about the release of Love Life?

Love Life’s first three episodes premiered to a generally positive audience response. Since the viewers were liking what they were seeing, HBO Max  execs decided to drop remaining episodes of Love Life in batches instead of dropping weekly episodes. So, episodes 4-6 will debut on June 4. The remaining four episodes will be released on June 11.

 

Here’s what Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, had to say :

“HBO Max audiences have fallen in love with Love Life. It’s wonderfully gratifying to see that fans have immediately connected to the show and we are accelerating the release of episodes to meet their demand for more. We thrilled to see Love Life emerge as one of the top performers of all content on Max and we love to be able to reward viewers who started watching on day one.”

For more on this, stay hooked.
