India Played A Vital Role In Developing The Galaxy S10's Camera Features & Here's What It Means
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsSamsung announced the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10e in India today, which are finally available to purchase in the country. It is one of the best Android flagship devices you can buy in India right now and you can read our official review here. © Youtube/Samsung India The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus come with a great triple camera setup where one of the lenses is an optically stabilised 12-megapixel main sensor with a dual aperture that can switch between f/1.5 for night shots and f/2.4 for the day. The second sensor is an ultra-wide 16-megapixel f/2.2 sensor that lets you capture more field of view and lastly a stabilised 12-megapixel telephoto sensor. © Samsung However, the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus comes with some nifty features such as a “Live Focus” mode which lets users take portrait images. You can adjust the blur after taking images and even add some awesome effects such as spin, colour point and others. The Galaxy S10 camera also has other intelligent features that let users optimise the scene and get on-screen guides to help users line up great shots. These features make it easier for casual users to take professional level looking images (or so they say). © Samsung However, at the launch event today, Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President of Samsung India said that many of these camera features were developed by engineers in India at Samsung's Bangalore R&D institute. “Over 500 engineers from India worked day and night to design and deliver a superlative camera experience on the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus,” Singh said, adding that features like 'Scene Optimiser', 'Live Focus', and AR Emoji are just some of the few cameras features that are “made for the world, right here in India”. © Samsung Samsung has already opened the world's largest mobile phone factory in India and is deeply invested in the 'Make in India' program. It's part of the reason why Samsung enjoys competitive pricing due to local manufacturing. Samsung India is also working on a new and improved version of Bixby Vision for Indian customers, where users will be able to “try and buy” clothes thanks to a local partnership with Myntra. Bixby Vision will also let Indian users find nearby restaurants by simply pointing the camera at a street. This is possible due to Samsung's partnership with Magicpin to provide users with live information on local interest points.
"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." Nelson Mandela's famous quote is probably the best way to describe Virat Kohli's love affair with cricket. His passion for cricket has made him one of the best batsmen in the world across formats and further nurtured him into a ruthless captain. It's also the very passion that defines Kohli's emotional, effervescent and, at times, explosive character. For him, the world is for the taking and his hunger to succeed has propelled him to the pinnacle of the sport. At the age of 30, he is arguably the most relentless and popular performer in the sport. He is already a World Cup winner (2011), the Player of the tournament at a World T20 (2014) and has led India to a record eight consecutive Test series wins. In December 2018, he became the first Asian captain to win a Test in England, Australia and South Africa. © Reuters If his cricketing skills have allowed him to scale new heights in international cricket, his winning mentality and positive mindset is also something that sets him apart from other cricketers of his generation. Despite the hardships and personal setbacks in his life, the Delhi cricketer has gone from strength to strength to carve his own niche in the sport - something that was in full display during his recent interview in Australia. This reply of Virat Kohli when asked how he feels when opposition team wins despite him trying his best, is a learning lesson in itself. MUST WATCH. pic.twitter.com/ryYijA4KsZ — Chandramukhið¥Stark (@FlawedSenorita) December 13, 2018 Talking to Fox Sports, Kohli revealed how he managed to overcome his problems to become the legend he is today. He also gave an insight into how he tries to get over a loss in cricket. “When you lose, eventually you feel so bad that you reach a point where you think there is nothing more than you can feel about this so you got to get over it,” Kohli said. "But now what happens is, even after we lose an important game to someone else, you actually feel bad about your own loss but at the same time, you look at it as the other team has come to play as well. These guys have the similar kind of emotion and passion that we have. There is no good reason why we should win every game. So, I naturally started feeling happy for the other team as well if they really outplay us, because you understand that they are playing the same sport and they might have the same emotion that I do,” he added. © AP Stressing on the importance of not overthinking, Kohli said: So you take it as a part of the game as you can't be so obsessive about it where you cannot put your mind to anything else, because you have to move on and focus on the next game as well. That thing has especially helped me in Test cricket also because you have to come back for 5 days and have that mindset otherwise you will struggle to forget it and refresh yourself to focus on the next game”. While Kohli was majorly talking about cricket, his words of wisdom serve as a great reminder to all those who have struggled or are still finding it hard to overcome their personal problems.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIn the world of espionage, anything and everything goes and it seems like the Chinese may be using spy chips in hardware for surveillance. Since everything is manufactured in China, including the laptop I'm typing this story on, it is not far-fetched that the Chinese Government may be secretly installed spy chips in servers of leading companies. © Bloomberg A report by Bloomberg suggests that data centre equipment run by Amazon Web Services and Apple may have been affected by this very practice. The report claims that a tiny microchip was inserted during the manufacturing process. These claims have been strongly refuted by both Apple and Amazon. According to Bloomberg, these chips have been under investigation since 2015 where it was found these chips steal intellectual property and trade secrets. This practice may have been introduced by a Chinese server company called Super Micro. It is a company in China that assembles marines used in the centres at Apple and Amazon. © Reuters All companies in question have disputed this report while Super Micro has denied the introduction of these chips during manufacturing. According to government and corporate sources, Chinese spies have breached at least 30 American companies by compromising the supply chain. Super Micro, is one of the world's biggest supplier of server motherboards, capacitors and fibreglass-mounted chips. The Chinese Government did not deny this report specifically but said in a statement “China is a resolute defender of cybersecurity. It advocates for the international community to work together on tackling cyber security threats through dialogue on the basis of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit.” A blog post by Amazon noted that "there are so many inaccuracies in this article as it relates to Amazon that they're hard to count." Apple told CNBC "We are deeply disappointed that in their dealings with us, Bloomberg's reporters have not been open to the possibility that they or their sources might be wrong or misinformed. Our best guess is that they are confusing their story with a previously reported 2016 incident in which we discovered an infected driver on a single Super Micro server in one of our labs. That one-time event was determined to be accidental and not a targeted attack against Apple.” China and its companies have been suspected earlier for spying on American companies to steal intellectual properties. Companies like Huawei, ZTE have also scrutinised in the past for various reasons. We aren't entirely sure whether the report by Bloomberg is accurate or not.
