Foldable Phones Don’t Matter, 5G Does!

What do I think about foldable phones? I think foldable phones don’t matter! Foldable phones remind me of flip phones back in time, but now instead of flipping a phone in style, we can unfold a phone into a tablet. Since foldable phones are so expensive, I guess using the tablet and unfoldable phone I already have will be just fine!

Although foldable phones are not that important, the 5G technology that gets to debut on these foldable phones is really important! Since 5G allows communication over the air almost instantaneously, and so this could allow innovations in the Internet of Things sector to thrive big time.

One company right now is leading the pack in term of 5G is of course none other than the Chinese giant, Huawei. Right now, Huawei is getting a lot of heat from the United States. Huawei’s CFO Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of the founder of Huawei, is being under house arrest in Canada in the behest of the United States’ extradition agreement with Canada. Furthermore, the United States is increasingly persuading other countries to not use Huawei’s 5G technology.

5G can be really useful for whatever purposes that demand faster wireless communication. I may not know what purposes would demand 5G the most, but I do know that 5G will be great for commercial purposes such as the Internet of Things devices. Furthermore, 5G will accelerate the use of driverless cars and other automated vehicles.

5G can allow driverless cars to see each other instantaneously and also communicate with smart roads and highways instantaneously. 4G technology is definitely too slow and less reliable than 5G when it comes to deploying the technology on a massive scale to allow crucial transit system to work in a smarter way. So I think 5G will definitely be a game changer in wireless communication.

Anyhow, I guess it’s going to be expensive to build a massive backbone system that could support the 5G wireless system. It seems though, this isn’t the problem for Huawei. Huawei seems to be able to deploy 5G network for various platforms in China already! For an example, a 5G network is now already up and running for Qingdao Port in Eastern China.

China is leading the way to deploy 5G network not only in China but across the world. Huawei is at the forefront of this 5G expansion from China. I’m not sure why the United States is really scared about how China is leading in 5G, but my guess is that whoever leads the 5G network deployment across the world gets to call the shot for making a standard for 5G chipsets and much more. This means big money and market cornering.

Since 5G technology will change how wireless communication permeates throughout the global economy, new and old markets could churn out a lot of new money for the global economy. For an example, driverless cars will become more reliable, encouraging people to spend more money on driverless cars. Dumb cars without the support of 5G technology might get left behind, collecting dust somewhere while driverless cars sell like hotcakes.

Nio’s Battery Swapping Versus Tesla’s Charging Station, Which Is Better?

If Nio can improve the range of Nio cars’ batteries by a lot, then Nio’s battery swapping stations will make Nio cars the king of electric vehicle market! Right now, Nio plans to install more battery swapping stations across China! This means more Chinese Nio car owners will not have to wait for their cars to be charged up because battery swapping takes only around three to four minutes of wait time. Check out the video right after the break to see Nio’s battery swapping in action.

So, if Nio cars can run on a longer range battery, Nio car owners don’t have to visit battery swapping station that often. With less Nio cars to have battery swapped out in Nio’s battery swapping station, the less crowded the battery swapping station can be — meaning the atmosphere can be more relaxing and friendly!

This is why I think as long Nio can improve the battery range of Nio cars, the better prospect of a battery swapping station as the default mode for getting an EV onto the road could become. I think at the moment, battery swapping station is already superior to any charging station out there. This is why I think Tesla has got to watch out for Nio because Nio could make Tesla’s charging station a big negative for upcoming EV owners in China.

Can The Chinese Push For Robust AI Development Forces The World To See Rapid Job Losses?

In the video right after the break, David Harvey said that it seems the Chinese will become the top dog of capitalism which would dictate how the future of capitalism would become. This is the first time I’ve heard of the man and so I don’t know much about him. Nonetheless, much of what he says in the video seems to make a lot of sense. Near the end of the video, he argues China, as a top dog capitalist, decides that the future of capitalism is all about Artificial Intelligence. Then he goes on to say that AI is all about removing the labor from the production process.

Let’s say that David Harvey is correct about how the Chinese will push the world to speed up the development of AI, then we have to ask ourselves how many more jobs we will see the world will lose? Furthermore, it’s not only in the United States that we will see people who are not going to be able to work to support themselves, but people of the whole world will experience the same dire situation! This means even if whoever in the United States decides to move across the sea to find a job won’t be able to do so! Basically, even if you have the mean and the will, you still won’t make it in a future where hardware and software will overtake human labors through AI developments!

Hyperloop Is Just A Hype?

Isn’t building a Hyperloop requiring more effort than just building a Maglev train? Furthermore, Hyperloop is probably more dangerous because having an emergency exit could be rather a pointless thing to have once the pressurization within the loop is no longer working as it should. Basically, your pod could be crushed like how you would step really hard on the side of an empty Coke can. Perhaps Maglev train could be just as dangerous, but could the Maglev train collide with train tracks by chance to create friction and decrease the magnitude of the accident so some survivors could climb out the train eventually? Well, at the moment, in China you could ride a Maglev train at 267.811 miles per hour (431kph), but you could only dream that a Hyperloop could be built and be this fast. In the videos right after the break, you could see why building a Hyperloop is a foolish endeavor!

Ain’t It Cool To Have Both BMW and Toyota In One Car?

I’m driving a boring old man Camry Hybrid, and I often wish that I could get a sportier car! Sometimes I look at one of those sporty BMWs on the road and I was like — this is a cool thing. I got to drive a BMW once because I knew a dude once who let me drove it. It was a sporty type with two doors and got those steering, how you call sticks or knobs or whatever, for shifting manually. Then I watch a YouTube video where it shows that someone was able to super up their Supra so it could attain 1800 horsepower. Hmm… now I’m thinking, ain’t it cool to have something like both a BMW coolness and reliable Toyota but sporty Supra in one car? Well, guess what, 2020 Toyota Supra is just that!

So, people are complaining how this brand new 2020 Toyota Supra that will come out in the Summer of 2019 is just another BMW Z4. The video above is actually clearing things up a lot more for me. Yes, I like the coolness of a BMW, but I prefer the reliability of a Toyota more! I know about it since I’m driving a very reliable Toyota Camry Hybrid for 12 years already. So I can totally attest to how reliable a Toyota car is! Just put it this way, I don’t even remember the last time I’d to worry about maintaining my Toyota Camry Hybrid besides oil change! So, basically, the video above tells me that Toyota brings its reliability to the co-joint operation of the Z4/Supra car basic platform.

Furthermore, after the basic co-join operation of the new sporty platform for both Z4/Supra, BMW and Toyota went separated way to make their cars unique. So, I think whoever will get BMW Z4 would have to thanks Toyota for making their Z4 more reliable! For me, I like how the 2020 Supra looks a lot. I can also imagine people will super up their 2020 Supra in craziest ways possible. In summary, I think it’s really cool to see both BMW and Toyota teaming up developing both sporty cars together!

It’s Cool To Hear Liu Cixin’s Thoughts on His “Three Body Problem” Trilogy and Other Cool Sci-Fi Things in an Interview.

Liu Cixin’s “Three Body Problem” put me in an annoying state but in a good way. Why? After getting to know his “Three Body Problem” epic trilogy, I couldn’t find any other sci-fi work to surprise or wow me anymore. Since then I keep wanting to be introduced to a similar or better trilogy but I had found none. To appease my thirst for sci-fi I’d to settle with my older favorites like Star Trek, but what I want is something as epic as “Three Body Problem.”

I’m really happy to see Liu Cixin talks about his work in the interview in which you can watch it in the video below.

I also heard that a new Chinese sci-fi big budget movie is coming out to a theater near you soon in the United States known as “The Wandering Earth (2019),” which is also based on one of his short stories. I can’t wait to go to see it in a theater near me. Hopefully, it won’t be a disappointment because sometimes a great story doesn’t make a great movie. The reality is sometimes rather cruel to a book lover because a movie may fail to reimagine a book in live action for various reasons such as budgetary problem and so forth.
