Apple Air pods

Wireless technology is transforming our lives at a very swift pace. If this goes on, soon we will be wire-free completely. Now when it comes to an industry which is purely dependent on pleasure.

Don’t get me wrong! A pleasure to the ears.

Music can be enjoyed when there is a comfort and companies try hard to design and manufacture the perfect product for your ears, wherein there will be less or no fidgeting, with those wires. And this is what drove innovation amongst earphone manufacturers like Bose. But Apple stole hearts with the launch of its Airpods last year. It’s pleasing and smart at the same time.

Missing Siri? Just double tap on your Air pod. Apple continues its legacy of artistic innovation combined with technology with the launch of its new wireless earphones called ‘Air pods’.  The wireless, hassle free music experience is at the centre of the design of the new apple Airpods and it has been there for many other apple products as well. Now Airpods enable the user to listen his favorite songs wirelessly, simply put they are earphones without wires and just the two regular earbuds which you have to put in your ears and start enjoying music.

Airpods come with a holding case which actually sync’s with the iPhone and other Apple devices as soon as you open its cap. Yes! The holding case has a battery of its own and you can charge the Airpods just by keeping them inside.

The holding box comes small in size and ensures that you don’t lose your precious

The holding box comes small in size and ensures that you don’t lose your precious Airpods, it has a magnetic lock, just for safety! Airpods are cool and aesthetically pleasant but issue is with the fitting, they seem to get loose and fall out at times.

Apple CEO Tim Cook claims that Apple has tested the design on various ear shapes and believes that the problem may arise only with a handful of people. He also said that, he himself has tried and tested the Airpods and found it perfect, therefore there will be no change in design. The new W1 chip has been helpful in reducing the latency experienced by normal earphones and has also improved the sound quality.

In smart TVs, the operating system is preloaded or is available through the set-top box. The software applications or “apps” can be preloaded into the device. Apps can be updated or installed on demand via an app store or app marketplace like we do with our mobile phones.

In smart TVs, the operating system is preloaded or is available through the set-top box. The software applications or “apps” can be preloaded into the device, or updated or installed on demand via an app store or app marketplace, in a similar manner to how the apps are integrated into modern smartphones. Since 2012 there has been a lot of progress in this field. Samsung KS9000 SUHD 4K Ultra HD 240 MR Smart LED 2016 TV comes with HDR and quantum dot color enhancement. The KS9000 4K SUHD TV, which comes in two different sizes at 55 and 65 inches, is the second tier SUHD TV for 2016, one notch below the next-up, temporary flagship model KS9500 television (until the KS9800 comes in June).

Media and data can be sent from mobile devices to one of the new Samsung models over Wi-Fi Direct. The TV uses Bluetooth to automatically search for other Samsung devices stationed nearby.

The future of television is bright and full of surprises.
