The Ultimate Vicinity for Tech Geeks
The Nuclear Power Plant supplying power to New York City, yes you guessed right, its the
Indian Point Energy Center. Unit 2 and Unit 3 of this nuclear power station have completed initial 40 year licensed operating period back in year 2013 and 2015 respectively. This facility is just 36 miles from midtown Manhattan and even quite near to NYC. New York City (NYC) is just 25 miles away from here.
Environmentalists are very concerned about this plant’s existence and its re-licensing. Owing to this, and pressure from Government as well. It’s expected that Entergy Limited will lose its case and both Units 2 & 3 will be permanently shut down by year 2021.
Apple once again opened a mini war against its biggest smartphone rival, Samsung. Samsung filed an application to Apple for the launch of Samsung's paying app named, "SAMSUNG PAY MINI". Apple rejected the app without any solid reason and didn't issue a permit for this app to appear on iStore.
Apple might be doing it, as they did it in case of Maps. Initially Apple didn't allow Google Maps to appear on iPhones when they launched Apple Maps, to give highlight to Apple Maps. Samsung Pay is more widely accepted than Apple Pay. Allowing Samsung Pay Mini app to iOS platform means to allow Samsung Pay to flourish more.
Apple perhaps doesn't want Samsung Pay to take its market. Apple Pay needs to be the only option for Apple users, and that's the only way Apple Pay can survive.
Now chatting with Snapchat is fun. You don't have to take your mobile out to snap or record anything. Snapchat launches its spectacles with cameras in them.

Google Inc. has finally launched it's 1st phone which designed by google n even made by google. Not by any famous mobile phone manufacturer. This phone is actually start of new mobile phone era. Google named it "PIXEL".
Nexus Series Vs Pixel
Unlike Nexus series this phone is not manufactured by any of famous smart phone manufacturers like Samsung , LG or Huawei. This time Google itself decided to take the load and ended up producing a highly competitive smartphone of the market today.
This is a new start and I find it competitive. A device specially designed by software provider for respective software is a best and most effective solution to software hardware issues which may rise due to prolonged usage and updates.
Shape & Over-all Look
Shape-wise this phone is altogether a copy of Apple's famous iPhone 6s and 6. I wouldn't say iPhone 7 here as the antenna lines on this phone is not similar to iPhone 7 but resembles to iPhone 6S and 6. The only difference notable is that iPhone has fingerprint sensor in front bottom where as this pixel got at back of the phone.
Sorry to say Google Inc. but I had better expectations from you. I didn't want an iPhone running android in my hands.
Two Models have been laughed depending upon user preferences. 5.0" inches named "Pixel" and 5.5" model known as "Pixel XL"
I personally find 4.7" display the best size. That's easy to handles while doing chores and other stuff. But Prisms 5.0" size even a good one and one of most famous android phones have this size. People who want to have a phablet experience 5.5" is ideal size of Pixel. With respect to phone sizes it's all good in Pixel.
Pixel got Google's latest android Naugot 7.1 platform. Making it roubust and effectively fast mobile experience
Phone is fast & swift.
Now coming to specs, Pixel is powered with Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 821 chipset . The famous name in smartphone industry and very capable.Pixel got Quad-core (2x2.15 GHz Kryo & 2x1.6 GHz Kryo) CPU and running on 4GB of ram. It's powered with Adreno 530 graphics engine which is a very extensive engine for a smart phone and I really liked it . Other features may include 4.2 Bluetooth, USB 3.0, Type C reversible Connector, Wifi , GPS and NFC.
One of the best smartphone specs on paper. With such specs working along with android 7+, this phone is gonna be boss of smartphone industry.
Pixel got an incredible camera of 12 megapixel having f/2.0. 1/2.3" sensor size and 1.55 micro meter pixel size.
It's selfie shooter is 8MP with 1/3.2" sensor size and 1.4 micro meter pixel size. This phone can shoot 1080p and even 2160p at 30fps video .
The sensor sizes and pixel sizes are very attractive figure for a smart phone camera and rendering it a very impressive camera on a smartphone . Even its highest rated camera on any smartphone according to DXO smartphone camera rating. Pictures captured are sharp and clear. Crispier shots are always attractive.
Google promised unlimited storage for Pixel. No memory full messages will pop up in Pixel's way of action.
2770mAh battery and quite an impressive charging time.
Summing up the whole thing, according to me the phone is future of smartphone and currently the strongest candidate to be called as the best smartphone of the year. It has impressive specs working on android's latest OS . No lags , no waiting. And now even no memory stacking problem. The most commonly used and loved feature of smartphones is its camera. Google Pixel is loaded with incredible cameras and makes it worth spending. The only thing which goes to Cons of this phone is its shape. Agree or not but it's almost a body clone of iPhone 6s or 6. Google should have worked on phones outlook instead of copying an iPhone. Google Pixel got a headphone jack which is an advantage as compared to iPhone 7. I find headphone jacks very important and vital and can't find a reason why could somebody omit such an important thing.
The bottom line is Google Pixel is a worth spending gadget. If you are android lover, it's a treat for you.
