5G coming soon!

Did you know that in South Korea, people there are tech crazy? Or did you know that Sweden has really fast internet. Well put those two together. South Korea is spending $1.7 billion for a 5G network. Crazy! The ministry of science says, “We helped fuel national growth with 2G services in the 1990s, 3G in the 2000s and 4G around 2010. Now it is time to take pre-emptive action to develop 5G,”

The plan is, to create a trial 5G service which will be rolled out in 2017 and a fully commercial service in December 2020. Now I think that over the years, the next generation of mobile phones is becoming more in demand. 4G or LTE went popular. Now, when 5G comes out it is going to be really popular. Priority will be given to developing key features for the new network, including ultra-HD, hologram transmission and cutting-edge social networking services.

South Korea’s government claims that the new generation of mobile technology is 1000 times faster than 4G, but that can not be verified. Though 5G technology might download a 800MB file in a second!

In my opinion, this is amazing and it will revolutionise the world. Though how much faster will technology get after 5G? A picosecond (Believe me, it actually exists. Smaller than a millisecond)?

That’s all I have folks. See you Monday! Mekul

Box revamps apps UI to iOS 7 and offers 50GB of free storage.

What a surprise. Ok, not to the apps UI is updated to iOS 7. More and more apps are doing that. But 50GB of free cloud storage is amazing! But put the exciting news to the end.

Box has revamped the app’s UI to iOS 7 and it looks really good. Nothing has changed, just the UI. Have a look at the photos. Off topic, most people actually dislike the UI of iOS 7. People like iOS 6’s UI. Personally, I like iOS 7 UI because I think Apple has gone for a different approach to their style. Here are some screenshots of Box from the App Store.Box Screenshot 2

CES 2014 Update

Hey! Mekul here. So I was writing Day 2 of the CES 2014 and my computer crashed not saving what I was writing. I managed to recover some of what I was writing but I realised I may as well just do one post on what was revealed at the CES 2014. See you later!

Apple airs Christmas ad

Well it is December which means it’s coming up to Christmas. Apple has started airing this Christmas ad. The ad shows off it’s AirPlay feature with the Apple TV. What happens is a teen visits his family and films various occasions like tobogganing (filming in slow-mo), playing in the snow, etc. and then shows it to his family.

Apple hasn’t done something like this in a while other than the iPhone 4s ad which features Santa and Siri.
