  • What’s New with Smartphones? Updates on the Leading Trends in Technology

    Posted in Guides by Brooke. on August 2, 2021

    It is almost crazy to think that just two decades ago, the concept of smartphones did not even exist. In fact, cellphones themselves were something that barely came into the hands of the consumers, and it was common to come across people who did not carry a cellphone with them at all.

     
    But companies like Blackberry and HTC took it upon themselves to push technology to their limits. Finally, we have come to what we know today as the smartphone. But updates and breakthroughs do not stop here. There are a lot more new and unique concepts that are up and coming.

     
    1. Artificial Intelligence
    Artificial Intelligence is the use of software that can recognize patterns and make decisions based on them. You can see this in many mobile assistants such as Google Assistant, Siri, and Alexa. Not only these, but the standard apps on your smartphone, such as maps also utilize AI to give you the most optimum route.

    pexels-anete-lusina-4790274

     

     

    2. Location-Based Applications
    It is no secret that your smartphone is constantly tracking your location. If you turn it off, you see prompts on your phone to turn it back on! With your permission, many applications track your location. Each time you download a new application, it might ask you for location access. For example, Uber does, as it needs to know your location to send you an Uber!

    pexels-pixabay-38271

     

     

    3. Augmented Reality
    Augmented reality is when you take something real from the camera and modify it to make something new. You can see this on Instagram all the time. But some manufacturers are taking it a step further by allowing you to make complete objects appear in your videos using augmented reality. Very soon, it will be hard to tell what is real and what is not in videos!

    pexels-julia-volk-5665436

     

     

    4. Virtual Reality
    You can already see it all around you, people playing games while wearing VR helmets. This technology is just inches short of entering your smartphone. Soon you will have a VR helmet and a joystick to control the experience. Your mobile video and gaming experience is going to change drastically!

  • What's the hip in music nowadays? Read on!

    Posted in Guides by Brooke. on July 18, 2021

    People are very passionate about music, and rightfully so. Music is powerful and can be very therapeutic based on your mood. But given that, there are multiple genres and types of music. You cannot just say that you like music and leave it at that; everyone has a subtype that they specifically vibe with.

     

     

     

    Music genres are all over the place. You have heavily electronic EDM, and then you have very lo-fi beats, and the fanbases are equally huge for both. While some genres are more popular than others, that does not mean that the music counts less. Here are the top genres in the music industry:

     
    1. Pop
    This is one of the most confusing ones to understand. The pop genre is basically derived from popular. And popular culture defines it for every era. Pop music has evolved a lot over time, and at one time, The Beatles were considered pop; but they mostly have soft rock tracks. Pop music nowadays is through famous artists such as The Weeknd and Maroon 5. Pop has evolved a lot around electronic sounds as of late.

    austin-neill-hgO1wFPXl3I-unsplash

     

    2. Hip-hop and Rap
    These were originally two different genres and had ancient roots embedded in the Blues and Gospel too. This genre has seen impressive evolution and has become the standard for the mainstream. With the help of computers, the traditional music tools that were a good voice and ability to play an instrument is not very necessary. Sub-genres such as trap have become very prevalent.

     
    3. EDM
    The rise of computers brought with it entirely new and unique ways to do things that were done another way traditionally. The same goes for music. Computers and electronics changed the shape of the music industry so that having an instrument is not even necessary to make music anymore. And as a result, EDM is one of the most popular forms of music today.

    pexels-gaby-tenda-2123606

     

    4. K-Pop
    This type of music originated in Korea and was exclusive to the country for a while. But slowly, it grew out of Korea and spread to the US and some European countries too. K-Pop is portrayed as a vibrant and colorful form of music. Even though not loved by everyone, K-Pop stars are amongst the people with the most enormous following on social media platforms.

    pexels-clem-onojeghuo-375893

     

    The right music can completely detach you from your worries and send you in a relaxing trance. When we think about it, it is not surprising why people are attached to their favorite music. The choice of music can say a lot about a person. What type of music do you like and why? Tell us in the comments below!

  • Will Your Skin Suffer from Summer-Autumn Season Transitions? Signs You Should Look Out For

    Posted in Guides by Brooke. on June 30, 2021

    You must have noticed that your skin is a bit irritable every time a seasonal change happens. While most people shrug it off and neglect it, your skin needs to be cared for in such situations. A change in the season changes the ambient temperature. It changes the humidity levels and lifestyle habits that your skin is used to.

     
    A sudden change in the weather can shake up your whole system. Till it re-adjusts to the changing climate, you would literally be uncomfortable in your own skin. Here are a few signs that you need to look out for as the season changes. They can be major indicators of unhealthy skin:

    amanda-dalbjorn-fvInY-Gh7sc-unsplash (1)
    1. Dryness
    As the air becomes cooler and drier, it becomes easier for the skin to lose its moisture. Dehydrated skin is visibly rough and very irritable. Dry skin can also take away the glow of your skin due to the rough texture. To tackle this, you need a product with hyaluronic acid. A good cream with that would be Garnier Green Labs Hyalu-Melon Serum Cream. It would be a wise decision to invest in a humidifier for your home as well.

     
    2. Breakouts
    People often relate acne breakouts to the hot weather of the summer. But that is not the case; you can get acne breakouts as the season changes as well. This is due to dehydration. Your body tries to compensate for the lack of moisture in the skin with extra sebum. This can collect in clogged pores and turn into acne. If you want to avoid clogged pores, use a good exfoliating scrub. And if you are already facing breakouts, try a acne patch.

    pexels-daniel-xavier-839633
    3. Redness
    As the seasonal changes are in progress, some days are much hotter than the others, and there is no order. A sudden temperature rise can dilate the arteries and veins in your skin, making them much more visible. The best solution to this is also to keep your skin moisturized and using a soothing gel routinely.

    Do you often feel these symptoms when the season changed? Most people take it as something that has to occur naturally, but it does not. Your skin should feel healthy and happy regardless of the season or the change in season that arises. You, too, have had experience with these symptoms and know how to deal with them; tell us in the comments below!

  • Posture Correctors You Should Buy Before It's Too Late

    Posted in Guides by Brooke. on May 20, 2021

    Good posture is when a body's muscles completely support the skeleton to maintain the alignment in a stable and energy-efficient way. A posture of a person can be de-morphed over time due to daily habits. Practices such as sitting with a hunched back, wearing the wrong shoes, and lack of exercise can take a lot of toll on your posture.
    Bad posture is basically all about muscular strength. The correct posture can be attained by training the muscles that have to maintain posture. While most of us can not choose to avoid situations causing bad posture, we can still correct it. To guide a body back into its natural alignment, you can use posture correctors. Here are a few top-rated posture correctors:

    Picture this: you have only two hours left to write an important document. The clock is ticking by, and with each minute, you feel like your deadline is even more unachievable. You are writing as fast as you can while cursing yourself for getting into such a mess. Secretly, everyone knows what went wrong.

     

     

     
    You re-read your emails multiple times for no reason, you kept using your social media for just five more minutes a little too many times, you started thinking about how not having that second cup of coffee is not allowing you to work, you spent too much time preparing for the task than actually doing it, and the list just never ends. If you want to escape this dreadful cycle, you are in luck! Here are a few tricks to save yourself from procrastination.

     

     
    1. Cut Coffee Breaks to a Minimum
    The worst thing about procrastination is that you usually only realize that you have procrastinated after running short of time. And going to make coffee after starting essential tasks is one of the top ways to end up rushing for a deadline. Find a way to stick to your desk no matter what. If coffee is necessary, get a portable coffee maker like a Keurig mini coffee maker, and keep it on your desk!
