The Worst Text You Could Ever Receive…

My goodness, it's terrible Super bad That’s right, it’s a disaster To be honest, the matter is much more serious than I thought A simple text symbol that crashed iMessage Just such a symbol makes iMessage completely unusable but I asked Will to look into it to see what the hell was going on It turns out that the actual situation is much more serious On his Macbook, this symbol crashed Havok directly The Note application on the notebook has crashed Just because there is a note in it that contains this symbol Just need a symbol That’s why I called Will over because he was studying this all morning Let’s test it in different ways to see how bad it is His Android machine is here, there is another one here, and then the iPhone X I will copy this symbol in the SMS chat and send it out, and send it to the Android device using the Android device, so that I can confirm that this is a problem only for iOS and OSX.

let's start My cell phone signal is a bit poor, so… Got it, look Nothing happens on the Android machine But what's going to happen next is a bit risky Just such a simple symbol may directly crash the messaging application on iPhone X Kind of crazy The ghost knows if we find this, will other apps have problems? Give it to Jack, show them Okay, that symbol is there, once the mouse touches that symbol Highlight it… collapsed! Show them what happens when you open the note app The note-taking app can’t even be opened IPhone X on the left, your phone on the right I put my phone card in, it might be a disaster I want to warn you, don't do this! I'm not kidding, it's really bad This symbol may crash your phone Yes, let them see what we are talking about Symbols are copied in The SIM card is read on the iPhone X send Will told me before that this is a foreign language Yes, I think it should be the Indian language Anyway, the language symbols of individual countries What if you are in this country? Do you have this symbol on your keyboard? Everyone is going to collapse The sending speed is a bit slow Why I feel that as long as I send a Test, he won’t crash It takes some time Did the iPhone receive it? Oh My God A little dangerous WOW! The phone restarted directly! If I open the text message, click on this text message Ready? But I don’t know why my iMessage app didn’t crash completely Because my next text message rejected the previous one, so it’s okay If someone is stupid and sends you this symbol, then he is willing to help you He can send you a rescue text message In this case, when you open the SMS, the phone does not need to display this symbol Before I send the rescue SMS, I first try to open the SMS app Now send a rescue text message, and then…

BOOM! I can enter the SMS application now If I take the initiative to open the chat window with Will SMS app will still crash collapsed! But if you copy this symbol in and post it, the iPhone will crash again. SMS arrived Open…crash It crashed immediately, and the text message was completely useless Completely collapsed The extent of this matter is more serious than I thought Apple, I hope you can find some engineers to see what's going on This is a big problem Remember, your Uncle Lewis told you not to do this They don’t realize how much we rely on technology now Just such a small bug immediately makes you panic It’s just a small symbol that makes so many things fall apart Willy Do, thank you for investigating this matter and sacrificing your own computer for presentation I'll go back and use my Pixel 2 XL hhhh, Android device Then I want to send this to Jack Do not! Don't do that! I was kidding, kidding

Google I/O 2021 keynote in 16 minutes

good morning everyone it's great to be back at io today i'm excited to share our latest breakthrough in natural language understanding lambda it's a language model for dialogue applications and it's open domain which means it's designed to converse on any topic and while it's still in research and development we've been using it internally to explore novel interactions for example say you wanted to learn about one of my favorite planets pluto lambda already understands quite a lot about pluto and millions of other topics let's listen to a conversation the team had with pluto a few days ago i'm so curious about you i sense your excitement ask me anything tell me what i would see if i visited you would get to see a massive canyon some frozen icebergs geysers and some craters it sounds beautiful i assure you it is worth the trip however you need to bring your coat because it gets really cold i'll keep that in mind hey i was wondering have you ever had any visitors yes i have had some the most notable was new horizons the spacecraft that visited me let's break down what made it feel so natural first learn concepts as you saw the model talked about the new horizon spacecraft and the coldness of space lambda synthesized these concepts from its training data because none of the responses were predefined lambda answered with sensible responses keeping the dialogue open-ended natural conversations are generative and they never take the same path twice and lambda is able to carry a conversation no matter what we talk about yet it's still early research so it doesn't get everything right sometimes it can give nonsensical responses imagining pluto doing flips or playing fetch with its favorite ball the moon other times it just doesn't keep the conversation go going we believe lambda's natural conversation capabilities have the potential to make information and computing radically more accessible and easier to use we look forward to incorporating better conversational features into products like google assistant search and workspace lambda is a huge step forward in natural conversation but it is still trained only on text when people communicate with each other they do it across images text audio and video so we need to build models that allow people to naturally ask questions across different types of information these are called multimodal models for example when you say show me the part where the lion roars at sunset we will get you to that exact moment in a video advances in ai are helping us reimagine what a map can be but now you can also use it to explore the world around you you'll be able to access live view right from the map and instantly see details about the shops and the restaurants around you including how busy they are recent reviews and photos of those popular dishes in addition there are a host of new features coming to live view later this year we're adding prominent virtual street signs to help you navigate those complex intersections second we'll point you towards key alarm landmarks and places that are important for you like the direction of your hotel third we're bringing it indoors to help you get around some of the hardest to navigate buildings like airports transit stations and malls indoor live you will start rolling out in top train stations and airports in zurich this week and will come to tokyo next month we're bringing you the most detailed street maps we've ever made take this image of columbus circle one of the most complicated intersections in manhattan you can now see where the sidewalks the crosswalks the pedestrian islands are something that might be incredibly helpful if you're taking young children out on a walk or absolutely essential if you're using a wheelchair thanks to our application of advanced ai technology on robust street view and aerial imagery we're on track to launch detailed street maps in 50 new cities by the end of the year so we're making the map more dynamic and more tailored highlighting the most relevant information exactly when you need it if it's 8 a.m on a weekday we'll display the coffee shops and bakeries more prominently in the map while at 5 pm we'll highlight the dinner restaurants that match your tastes you'll start seeing this more tailored map in the coming weeks people have found it really useful especially during this pandemic to see how busy a place is before heading out now we're expanding this capability from specific places like restaurants and shops to neighborhoods with the feature called area business say you're in rome and want to head over to the spanish steps and its nearby shops with area business you'll be able to understand at a glance if it's the right time for you to go based on how busy that part of the city is in real time area busyness will roll out globally in the coming months let's talk about all the ways we're innovating in shopping soon on chrome when you open a new tab you'll be able to see your open carts from the past couple of weeks we'll also find you promotions and discounts for your open carts if you choose to opt in your personal information and what's in your carts are never shared with anyone externally without your permission we capture photos and videos so we can look back and remember there are more than four trillion photos and videos stored in google photos but having so many photos of loved ones screenshots selfies all stored together makes it hard to rediscover the important moments soon we're launching a new way to look back that we're calling little patterns little patterns show the magic in everyday moments by identifying not so obvious moments and resurfacing them to you this feature uses machine learning to translate photos into a series of numbers and then compares how visually or conceptually similar these images are when we find a set of three or more photos with similarities such as shape or color we'll surface them as a pattern when we started testing little patterns we saw some great stories come to life like how one of our engineers traveled the world with their favorite orange backpack or how our product manager christy had a habit of capturing objects of similar shape and color we also want to bring these moments to life with cutting edge effects last year we launched cinematic photos to help you relive your memories in a more vivid way cinematic moments will take these near duplicate images and use neural networks to synthesize the movement between image a and image b we interpolate the photos and fill in the gaps by creating new frames the end result is a vivid moving picture and the cool thing about this effect is it can work on any pair of images whether they were captured on android ios or scanned from a photo album in addition to providing personalized content to look back on we also want to give you more control we heard from you that controls can be helpful for anyone who has been through a tough life event breakup or loss these insights inspired us to give you the control to hide photos of certain people or time periods from our memories feature and soon you'll be able to remove a single photo from a memory rename the memory or remove it entirely instead of form following function what if form followed feeling instead of google blue we imagined material you a new design that includes you as a co-creator letting you transform the look and feel of all your apps by generating personal material palettes that mix color science with a designer's eye a new design that can flex to every screen and fit every device your apps adapt comfortably every place you go beyond light and dark a mode for every mood these selections can travel with your account across every app and every device material u comes first to google pixel this fall including all of your favorite google apps and over the following year we will continue our vision bringing it to the web chrome os wearables smart displays and all of google's products we've overhauled everything from the lock screen to system settings revamping the way we use color shapes light and motion watch what happens when the wallpaper changes like if i use this picture of my kids actually getting along for once i set it as my background and voila the system creates a custom palette based on the colors in my photo the result is a one of a kind design just for you and you'll see it first on google pixel in the fall starting from the lock screen the design is more playful with dynamic lighting pick up your phone and it lights up from the bottom of your screen press the power button to wake up the phone instead and the light ripples out from your touch even the clock is in tune with you when you don't have any notifications it appears larger on the lock screen so you know you're all caught up the notification shade is more intuitive with a crisp at a glance view of your app notifications whatever you're currently listening to or watching and quick settings that give you control over the os with just a swipe and a tap and now you can invoke the google assistant by long pressing the power button and the team also reduced the cpu time of android system server by a whopping 22 percent and with android 12 we're going even further to keep your information safe to give people more transparency and control we've created a new privacy dashboard that shows you what type of data was accessed and when this dashboard reports on all the apps on your phone including all of your google apps and we've made it really easy to revoke an app's permission directly from the dashboard we've also added an indicator to make it clear when an app is using your camera or microphone but let's take that a step further if you don't want any apps to access the microphone or camera even if you've granted them permission in the past we've added two new toggles in quick settings so you can completely disable those sensors for every app android's private compute core enables things like now playing which tells you what song is playing in the background and smart reply which suggests responses to your chats based on your personal reply patterns and there's more to come later this year all of the sensitive audio and language processing happens exclusively on your device and like the rest of android private compute core is open source it's fully inspectable and verifiable by the security community with a single tap you can unlock and sign into your chromebook when your phone is nearby incoming chat notifications from apps on your phone are right there in chrome os and soon if you want to share a picture one click and you can access your phone's most recent photos to keep movie night on track we're building tv remote features directly into your phone you can use voice search or even type with your phone's keyboard we're also really excited to introduce support for digital car key car key will allow you to lock unlock and start your car all from your phone it works with nfc and ultra wideband technology making it super secure and easy to use and if your friend needs to borrow your car you can remotely and securely share your digital key with them car key is launching this fall with select google pixel and samsung galaxy smartphones and we're working with bmw and others across the industry to bring it to their upcoming cars that was a quick look at android 12 which will launch this fall but you can check out many of these features in the android 12 beta today let's go beyond the phone to what we believe is the next evolution of mobile computing the smartwatch first building a unified platform jointly with samsung focused on battery life performance and making it easier for developers to build great apps for the watch second a whole new consumer experience including updates to your favorite google apps and third a world-class health and fitness service created by the newest addition to the google family fitbit as the world's largest os we have a responsibility to build for everyone but for people of color photography has not always seen us as we want to be seen even in some of our own google products to make smartphone photography truly for everyone we've been working with a group of industry experts to build a more accurate and inclusive camera so far we've partnered with a range of different expert image makers who've taken thousands of images to diversify our image data sets helped improve the accuracy of our auto white balance and auto exposure algorithms and given aesthetic feedback to make our images of people of color more beautiful and more accurate although there's still much to do we're working hard to bring all of what you've seen here and more to google pixel this fall we were all grateful to have video conferencing over the last year it helped us stay in touch with family and friends and kept businesses and schools going but there is no substitute for being together in the room with someone so several years ago we kicked off a project to use technology to explore what's possible we call it project star line first using high resolution cameras and custom built depth sensors we capture your shape and appearance from multiple perspectives and then fuse them together to create an extremely detailed real-time 3d model the resulting data is huge many gigabits per second to send this 3d imagery over existing networks we developed novel compression and streaming algorithms that reduce the data by a factor of more than 100 and we have developed a breakthrough light field display that shows you the realistic representation of someone sitting right in front of you in three dimensions as you move your head and body our system adjusts the images to match your perspective you can talk naturally gesture and make eye contact it's as close as we can get to the feeling of sitting across from someone we have spent thousands of hours testing it in our own offices and the results are promising there's also excitement from our lead enterprise partners we plan to expand access to partners in healthcare and media thank you for joining us today please enjoy the rest of google i o and stay tuned for the developer keynote coming up next i hope to see you in person next year until then stay safe and be well

Quit social media | Dr. Cal Newport | TEDxTysons

Translator: Peter van de Ven
Reviewer: Denise RQ You probably don't realize that right now, you're actually
looking at something quite rare. Because I am a millennial
computer scientist book author standing on a TEDx stage, and yet, I've never had
a social media account. How this happened
was actually somewhat random. Social media first came onto my radar
when I was at college, my sophomore year of college, this is when Facebook
arrived at our campus. And at the time, which was
right after the first dotcom bust, I had had a dorm room business,
I'd had to shut it down in the bust, and then, suddenly, this other kid
from Harvard, named Mark, had this product called Facebook
and people being excited about it. So in sort of a fit of somewhat
immature professional jealousy, I said, "I'm not going to use this thing. I won't help this kid's business;
whatever's going to amount to." As I go along my life,
I look up not long later, and I see everyone I know
is hooked on this thing.

And from the clarity you can get when you have some objectivity,
some perspective on it, I realized this seems
a little bit dangerous. So I never signed up. I've never had
a social media account since. So I'm here for two reasons;
I want to deliver two messages. The first message I want to deliver is that even though I've never had
a social media account, I'm OK, you don't have to worry. It turns out I still have friends, I still know what's going on in the world; as a computer scientist I still collaborate with people
all around the world, I'm still regularly exposed
serendipitously to interesting ideas, and I rarely describe myself
as lacking entertainment options. So I've been OK,
but I'd go even farther and say not only I am OK without social media
but I think I'm actually better off. I think I'm happier, I think I find
more sustainability in my life, and I think I've been
more successful professionally because I don't use social media. So my second goal here on stage is try to convince more of you
to believe the same thing.

Let's see if I could actually
convince more of you that you too would be better off
if you quit social media. So, if the theme of this TEDx event
is "Future Tense," I guess, in other words,
this would be my vision of the future, would be one in which fewer people
actually use social media. That's a big claim,
I think I need to back it up. So I thought, what I would do is take the three most
common objections I hear when I suggest to people
that they quit social media, and then for each of these objections,
I'll try to defuse the hype and see if I can actually
push in some more reality.

This is the first
most common objection I hear. That's not a hermit, that's actually a hipster web developer
down from 8th Street; I'm not sure. Hipster or hermit?
Sometimes it's hard to tell. This first objection goes as follows, "Cal, social media is one
of the fundamental technologies of the 21st century. To reject social media would be
an act of extreme [bloodism]. It would be like riding to work
on a horse or using a rotary phone. I can't take
such a big stance in my life." My reaction to that objection
is I think that is nonsense. Social media is not
a fundamental technology. It leverages
some fundamental technologies, but it's better understood as this. Which is to say,
it's a source of entertainment, it's an entertainment product.

The way that technologist
Jaron Lanier puts it is that these companies
offer you shiny treats in exchange for minutes of your attention
and bites of your personal data, which can then be packaged up and sold. So to say that you don't use social media
should not be a large social stance, it's just rejecting one form
of entertainment for others. There should be no more
controversial than saying, "I don't like newspapers,
I like to get my news from magazines," or "I prefer to watch cable series,
as opposed to network television series." It's not a major political
or social stance to say you don't use this product. My use of the slot machine image
up here also is not accidental because if you look a little bit closer
at these technologies, it's not just that they're
a source of entertainment but they're a somewhat
unsavory source of entertainment. We now know that many
of the major social media companies hire individuals
called attention engineers, who borrow principles
from Las Vegas casino gambling, among other places, to try to make these products
as addictive as possible.

That is the desired
use case of these products: is that you use it in an addictive fashion
because that maximizes the profit that can be extracted
from your attention and data. So it's not a fundamental technology, it's just a source of entertainment,
one among many, and it's somewhat unsavory
if you look a little bit closer. Here's the second common objection I hear when I suggest that people
quit social media. The objection goes as follows, "Cal, I can't quit social media because it is vital to my success
in the 21st century economy. If I do not have a well-cultivated
social media brand, people won't know who I am,
people won't be able to find me, opportunities won't come my way, and I will effectively
disappear from the economy." Again my reaction is once again: this objection also is nonsense. I recently published this book that draws on multiple
different strands of evidence to make the point that,
in a competitive 21st century economy, what the market values is the ability to produce things
that are rare and are valuable. If you produce something
that's rare and valuable, the market will value that.

What the market dismisses,
for the most part, are activities that are easy to replicate
and produce a small amount of value. Well, social media use is the epitome of an easy to replicate activity
that doesn't produce a lot of value; it's something that any six-year-old
with a smartphone can do. By definition, the market is not going to give
a lot of value to those behaviors. It's instead going to reward
the deep, concentrated work required to build real skills and to apply
those skills to produce things – like a craftsman – that are rare and that are valuable.

To put it another way:
if you can write an elegant algorithm, if you can write a legal brief
that can change a case, if you can write a thousand words of prose that's going to fixate
a reader right to the end; if you can look at a sea of ambiguous data and apply statistics,
and pull out insights that could transform a business strategy, if you can do these type of activities
which require deep work, that produce outcomes
that are rare and valuable, people will find you. You will be able to write your own ticket, and build the foundation of a meaningful
and successful professional life, regardless of how many
Instagram followers you have.

This is the third comment objection I hear when I suggest to people
that they quit social media; in some sense, I think it might be
one of the most important. This objection goes as follows, "Cal, maybe I agree, maybe you're right;
it's not a fundamental technology. Maybe using social media is not
at the core of my professional success. But, you know what? It's harmless, I have some fun on it
– weird: Twitter's funny – I don't even use it that much,
I'm a first adopter, it's kind of interesting to try it out, and maybe I might miss out
something if I don't use it.

What's the harm?" Again, I look back and I say:
this objection also is nonsense. In this case, what it misses is
what I think is a very important reality that we need to talk about more frankly, which is that social media brings with it multiple, well-documented,
and significant harms. We actually have to confront
these harms head-on when trying to make decisions about whether or not
we embrace this technology and let it into our lives. One of these harms
that we know this technology brings has to do with your professional success. I just argued before
that the ability to focus intensely, to produce things
that are rare and valuable, to hone skills the market place value on, that this is
what will matter in our economy.

But right before that, I argued that social media tools
are designed to be addictive. The actual designed
desired-use case of these tools is that you fragment your attention
as much as possible throughout your waking hours; that's how these tools
are designed to use. We have a growing amount
of research which tells us that if you spend
large portions of your day in a state of fragmented attention – large portions of your day,
breaking up your attention, to take a quick glance, to just check,
– "Let me quickly look at Instagram" – that this can permanently reduce
your capacity for concentration. In other words, you could
permanently reduce your capacity to do exactly the type of deep effort that we're finding to be
more and more necessary in an increasingly competitive economy. So social media use is not harmless, it can actually have
a significant negative impact on your ability to thrive in the economy. I'm especially worried about this
when we look at the younger generation, which is the most saturated
in this technology.

If you lose your ability
to sustain concentration, you're going to become less and less
relevant to this economy. There's also psychological harms
that are well documented that social media brings,
that we do need to address. We know from the research literature
that the more you use social media, the more likely you are
to feel lonely or isolated. We know that the constant exposure to your friends carefully curated,
positive portrayals of their life can leave you to feel inadequate,
and can increase rates of depression.

And something I think we're going to be
hearing more about in the near future is that there's a fundamental mismatch between the way our brains are wired and this behavior
of exposing yourself to stimuli with intermittent rewards
throughout all of your waking hours. It's one thing to spend a couple of hours
at a slot machine in Las Vegas, but if you bring one with you,
and you pull that handle all day long, from when you wake up to when you go
to bed: we're not wired from it. It short-circuits the brain, and we're starting to find
it has actual cognitive consequences, one of them being this sort of
pervasive background hum of anxiety. The canary in the coal mine for this issue
is actually college campuses.

If you talk to mental health experts
on college campuses, they'll tell you that along with the rise
of ubiquitous smartphone use and social media use
among the students on the campus, came an explosion of anxiety-related
disorders on those campuses. That's the canary in the coal mine. This type of behavior
is a mismatch for our brain wiring and can make you feel miserable. So there's real cost to social media use; which means when you're trying to decide,
"Should I use this or not?", saying it's harmless is not enough. You actually have to identify
a significantly positive, clear benefit that can outweigh these potential,
completely non-trivial harms. People often ask, "OK, but what is life like
without social media?" That can actually be
a little bit scary to think about.

According to people
who went through this process, there can be a few difficult weeks. It actually is like a true detox process. The first two weeks can be uncomfortable: you feel a little bit anxious,
you feel like you're missing a limb. But after that, things settle down, and actually, life after social media
can be quite positive. There's two things I can report back
from the world of no social media use. First, it can be quite productive. I'm a professor at a research institution,
I've written five books, I rarely work past 5 pm on a weekday. Part of the way I'm trying
to able to pull that off is because it turns out,
if you treat your attention with respect, – so you don't fragment it;
you allow it to stay whole, you preserve your concentration – when it comes time to work you can do one thing after another,
and do it with intensity, and intensity can be traded for time.

It's surprising how much
you can get done in a eight-hour day if you're able to give each thing
intense concentration after another. Something else I can report back
from life without social media is that outside of work,
things can be quite peaceful. I often joke I'd be very comfortable
being a 1930s farmer, because if you look at my leisure time, I read the newspaper
while the sun comes up; I listen to baseball on the radio; I honest-to-god sit in a leather chair and read hardcover books at night
after my kids go to bed. It sounds old-fashioned,
but they were onto something back then. It's actually a restorative, peaceful way
to actually spend your time out of work. You don't have
the constant hum of stimuli, and the background hum of anxiety
that comes along with that.

So life without social media
is really not so bad. If you pull together these threads,
you see my full argument that not everyone, but certainly
much more people than right now, much more people
should not be using social media. That's because we can first, to summarize, discard with the main concerns that it's a fundamental
technology you have to use. Nonsense: it's a slot machine
in your phone. We can discard with this notion
that you won't get a job without it. Nonsense: anything a six-year-old
with a smartphone can do is not going to be
what the market rewards. And then I emphasized the point
that there's real harms with it. So it's not just harmless. You really would have to have
a significant benefit before you would say
this trade-off is worth it. Finally I noted,
that life without social media: there's real positives associated with it. So I'm hoping that when many of you
actually go through this same calculus, you'll at least consider
the perspective I'm making right now, which is: many more people
would be much better off if they didn't use this technology.

Some of you might disagree, some of you might have scathing
but accurate critiques of me and my points, and of course, I welcome
all negative feedback. I just ask that you direct
your comments towards Twitter. Thank you. (Applause).

Dual Screen Smartphone? – Front AND Rear Displays Tested!

So here's a new one for you, a smartphone
with two screens. This is the Nubia X – an Android smartphone
that comes with two built in screens, one on the front, and one on the back. You know we couldn't let this one slip by
without a full on durability test. Let's get started. [Intro] So supposedly if you want to work this contraption,
there are two fingerprint readers on the sides that when gripped allow whatever's displayed
on the front screen to slip over onto the back panel while retaining full functionality. You can run the whole phone from back here. When the rear screen is turned off, it looks
just like a normal phone.

Let's see what happens when we scratch test
both screens. This Nubia X comes with a builtin screen protector
which is nice. I'll pull that off. The interesting thing with this phone is that
there's no notch, there's no front facing cameras or sensors that need to be hidden,
which allows the whole front of the phone to light up edge to edge, as a display with
pretty much no bezels. As we see from the scratch test, the front
is made with tempered glass, scratching at a level 6, with deeper grooves at a level
7. We've got to be fair to both screens though. I'll grip the sides and flip it around. The rear screen has a much lower refresh rate
than the front screen, and has kind of a yellow tinge to it. It's also covered with a screen protector. I've found that the yellowness is just a blue
light filter that can be removed. I'll show you that in a second. The blue backing on the phone is kind of like
reflective film that acts as a 2-way mirror, that hides the second screen when it's turned
off.

And once again we get scratches at a level
6, with deeper grooves at a level 7. The rear screen is covered with the same glass. Part of what makes the front screen so bezel-less
is how small this earpiece is. I almost missed it. It's barely the thickness of my razor blade. The sides of the phone sound and look like
anodized aluminum. You can see the silver color shining through
under the blue coating, even here on the blue power button. One possible weak point in the frame is this
flattened portion where the fingerprint scanner resides.

It looks suspiciously like the design flaw
we saw on the iPad Pro, and we know how that one turned out. This phone has 2 of them, one on either side. I'm kind of nervous. The top of the phone has more metal and what
looks like an IR blaster up top for changing the channels on your TV. On the other side we have the SIM card tray,
volume rocker, and another flattened fingerprint reader…because why have just one fingerprint
reader when you can have two? Two is kind of the theme of this phone.

There are 2 SIM card slots as well, which
pair nicely with the two screens. Just one USB-C port down here at the bottom
alongside the loudspeaker holes. You might be thinking to yourself, 'Jerry,
why in the world would anyone want two screens on their phone?' Well let me tell you. There are no front facing cameras on the Nubia
X, just these two dual rear cameras: a 16 megapixel and 24 megapixel. One regular and the other one for that portrait
mode stuff. So when you want to take a selfie, you get
to use the powerful rear facing cameras while seeing your face at the same time. It's an interesting solution to the notch
problem, but also a solution that actually works. I'm impressed with the ingenuity – I genuinely
did not see this one coming. Like dual everything else on the phone, there
are two fingerprint scanners. You can use one or set up both for added security. And even with the damage inflicted on the
right side, the phone can still sense and unlock my fingerprint. Not too shabby, but at least there's a backup
if one ever fails. Now here's where things get interesting.

This front screen is a 6.2 inch 1080p IPS
LCD, meaning that after about 10 seconds we see the pixels getting hot, turning off and
going black, until the heat is removed, and then they slowly recover. They do recover completely though. Checking the back screen though, is where
we see one of the brilliant parts of the Nubia X design. An LCD screen when turned on has light shining
through every single pixel, even the black ones. So the whole display lights up. An LED screen or an AMOLED screen does not
have light shining through the black pixels, so you really can't tell when the screen is
on or off because the blacks are so black and emit no light. The Nubia X is using a 5.1 720p AMOLED screen
on the back, an LCD on the front, and AMOLED for the rear. You can see the pixels going white and not
recovering. Both technologies on one single device – burn
test justification. Checkmate on the haters.

The rear screen can act like an always-on
display without showing the actual edges of the screen. This provides the aesthetic illusion that
there's no screen at all on the back panel. Whether the screen is lit up or not, you can't
really see the rectangular edges due to the super black AMOLED pixels. It's interesting how all these innovative
smartphones keep popping up out of nowhere. No complaints from me. Here's a quick look at the rear display with
the blue light filter turned off. It looks completely normal and has as good
of quality as the front screen. I'm not sure why the Nubia X had that setting
turned on right out of the box. I think it looks pretty good. All of these awesome gimmicks though mean
nothing if the phone can't survive in your pocket for a few years. Here on my channel we put phones through years
of abuse in just a few minutes. It's time for the bend test. The dual fingerprint design on both side rails
might just be fatal.

With a solid flex from the front, we get minimal
bend, but no catastrophic damage, creeks or snaps. The rear screen looks fine. Even when bent from the front, the phone remains
intact and fully functional. No complaints here. The Nubia X is a structurally solid device,
even with all that fragile tech packed in, and while having screens on both sides, this
phone survives. As a side note, if one screen does actually
break, you can always just use the other as a back up since it does come with two. Do you think this phone is the future? Is a dual screen phone a better solution than
a motorized front facing camera? Which one do you prefer? Back to back screens are definitely fascinating. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already. And come hang out with me on Instagram and
Twitter.

Thanks a ton for watching. I'll see you around..

Why I Don’t Use A Smart Phone | Ann Makosinski | TEDxTeen

Translator: zainab Alfaqeeh Validator: Mennatullah Mustafa The last time you used the folded phone It was 3 hours and 24 minutes ago. This is my phone. It opens like this. Many people call this design an "old phone". He was also shot by someone from the airport security. I wanted to say, "No, I just bought it!" I got my first phone in September, Just a month ago, I got a phone. Because I was going to college, and I needed to make long calls. Let's be honest.

I am 18 years old, and have never owned a phone. And I was very fortunate to live On beautiful Vancouver Island Basically everyone out there owns a phone. This means that I lived in middle and high school Without a phone. Carrying a folded phone is not considered traditional nowadays As being a "fashionable kid" but I'm here today to tell you That he picked up the folded phone at the age of eighteen Sure, you are expressed as a – "modern kid" My name is Anne Makusinki, I am 18 years old, I am from Canada.

And you can call me the inventor. Actually, this is funny because when I was a child, I was called "different", And it was because of me, That I wanted to be different, However, it is not clear that I am "different" at present- I dress and talk like others do- In fact, I was somehow preparing myself to be different. So how did I prepare myself to "be different" as a child, It was that my dad didn't bring me a lot of toys at all. I didn't own Timaguchi, Nintebo, Wii, Xbox, none of that. But what they brought me was hot gun glue. And I had to make my own toys. That was my first place to pick, Or almost I was forced to be innovative To solve the first problems that you may encounter as a child It's how to make yourself amused. Anne McCosinki: This is my second invention.

It is called "creativity". What I showed you a while ago is called "invention." Because it is the first thing I made. Now this: Can you see this flat? Poses to be able to balance it. Or I can sit on it, creativity. But I do not prolong my sitting because it is fragile. That was my first experience inventing things. Other than not having too many games, Some of the games I've owned were a little strange compared to my friends' games Here is a picture of me playing with my first set of games It was a small radio, and electronic components.

And it started from here When you introduce the world to me that I make things with my own hands, And I feel that it is a skill that is almost lost in our time It has also actually become high as a job demand If you really do have the ability to make things, instead of writing all the time. I was always doing things and being committed. As a child, I was not allowed to go out often to see plays and things like that, Until I finish all my homework and piano practice- I am sure most of you will understand. My parents come from different backgrounds.

One of them is from Poland and the other from the Philippines. This is really funny, so many parents come to me And they're really worried About whether or not they should give their children toys. What I want to recommend – Not being an expert – But if you didn't give your child that many toys, I think you will be fine, but what I found in my view is that creativity, And making things create with need, Because I didn't have many things to play with. I think it is important to encourage your child Because I know that as a parent you want to give your children the whole world, Give them everything you have. Go back in time, when I was 13 or 14 years old my father was a skater, I used to think I wanted to learn to skate and be cool.

And I got a skateboard. And it's still in the corner of my room, And I never touched it. What happened that I thought was, "Awesome! I own a snowboard. I can skate now" and I left him immediately. If only wheels were given to me, Then I had to get a simple job, and work on it, Doing housework, getting an allowance, saving, Design the table and put it all together, I have rated the whole experience as much more than that Because I'm almost actually a skateboarder now Or something like that.

So I think it's very important, when you are young People should encourage you to your passion But they don't give you everything to begin with. Because I wasn't given that many games, I enjoyed almost everything. I think I smell it here, I was a very beautiful child. I have to be honest with you, I say That I am "culturally" I am not very educated in some aspects. For example, I grew up watching movies from 1920, 1930 And I've never seen action fiction films.

Don't kill me, this is not a must watch For some reason, the fact that I don't own a phone as a teen, It limited my chat time with people. But I've never felt like, "Oh my God I'm feeling lost not having a phone." And some teenagers here might know, that this is called "FOMO," Meaning: Fear of failure. I never felt it, because I was keeping what was given. What should I strive for. So what should I do in my spare time? Well, when I was in middle school, I definitely wasn't a "wonderful child", you think. I wasn't the child who would say, "I too wanted to hang out with them." That is because, that in middle and high school You are criticized a lot, My confidence was first undermined by my appearance. I had short hair, glasses, braces, and wore masculine clothes, I didn't have cool things. They introduce people to me and say, "Oh, how handsome you are!" I reply "Thanks!" And I go my way. So, I was definitely a little lonely, But I looked at some people with my life.

While many teenagers are fans of modern pop stars, actresses or actors, I respect that very much. I have some too – The ones I revered were a little different, and I couldn't always communicate with them. For example, my family has a gift, She is the assistant at the "Ravi Chanca" archive. Ravi Shankar was a musician Who brought all Indian culture and music from East to West In the 1960s and 1970s it helped generate the hippie movement. He worked with George Harrison. We got an advantage when we were kids by traveling to California, And every summer, I would learn from him, and learn from his love and passion With what he was doing, he brings it and introduces it to people Who have never seen anything like this before. This was something he loved so dearly.

That inspired me and one day, we went to visit his family in India. I was very shocked at the poverty there. That was my first time ever to try something as well. I was almost eight years old, and that was a huge shock to me. Another time, we went to visit some families in the Philippines, And I saw houses like this, You don't see it permanently in Canada, where you come from. I was stunned. I did not adjust; I knew there were problems in the world, And I wanted to find a way to fix it easily.

But I never expected that I could get any of this done Because I was just a normal teen no one looked like her Except for the untouchable duo who were with me. The two things I loved doing were noticed by my parents They were plumbing and modern work So I was registered with something, the popular high school kids were doing – Just a joke – it is a science fair. This is me in sixth grade. I look like Harry Potter. In any case, I was very proud of this project.

I compared laundry detergents. So, I started doing the project, And I began to proceed with the effort harvesting phase. I was inspired to do my project, when one of my Filipino friends told me That she failed in her academic stage Because she could not afford the electricity costs. She didn't have lights to study at night. It took me back to my childhood days when I ran into trouble From the start, for myself: finding a way to entertain myself I made my own inventions and games. But here was my girlfriend's problem. "Well, why don't I invent a way to save her?" So for that, I made something You might know me, he is "Girl Scout", It is a flashlight that works at the temperature of the human hand. From that I embarked on a whole new journey Where I finally learned to become confident in what I am, And the number one reason for that, to be honest, I never thought that someone was enthusiastic about my project.

It goes to places like Google Science Fair It feels great to see people inspired by what I did. This year I presented my newest invention, called eDrink. This is a coffee mug that is used for extra heat for your hot drinks While you wait for it to cool down a little, this heat turns into electricity So you can eventually charge a phone or iPad from that temperature. Just because you're in college, considered a "college student." This does not mean that it is the only thing to be.

Not that you think, "You know, I'm in college." Stay like this, do nothing else. You can follow what you like to do, and start high school. When I was in middle school, I started making things with electronics. You can do whatever you want. All your dreams are possible. But you have to start and work on it, even if 20 minutes of your day. This is what I wanted to stress today When you don't have much, you have opportunities and time to innovate. When you have a little to start with, Your mind has been designed to handle and solve various problems Also solve people's problems and affairs. I think it's important to emphasize, especially in today's society Where excessive, like buying this and getting that, This is the latest edition of the fashion I gotta wear, And throw all that I have, " something like that. I really think that's going to cause controversy But I totally believe that lack of communication helps creativity.

But you hold your phone, without even thinking about it, Often, look at it for a few seconds or a minute. Thinking that you are looking at your phone in a hurry. However, if you count every minute, every second You'll find you've spent the day on your phone, that's terrifying. Really, it reduces your enjoyment, So you can use your time effectively, If only I would have had one thing to do today, For everyone who owns a phone or any electronic device, In the coming times when you carry your phone, Think of all the possibilities that fall under "turning off" your phone not "turning it on". Thank. (clap).
