Today's world is connected #electronically to provide #information and #services at the tap of a #mobile device. However, only one third of the population in the world is accessible to this technology due to poor #connectivity or high #cost. Telecommunication has different types of #nodes and ways of #propagation between source and end user. Now, they are mostly done through #fiber (wired) and satellites (wireless). Both have limitations area covered and O&O cost. This is where #balloons #technology and #drone technology come in handy. The aim of these technologies is to provide connectivity to remote parts of the world that are not covered at cheaper rates. This article talks of #Airbus company's pursuit in drone technology. #Facebook has abandoned its drone communication project and joined Airbus. This project is still not reached a prototype testing, but seems promising.

#Google #LoonProject has taken a lead with balloon technology. This project has been operating successfully in few areas of the world on real test basis. This project is starting to shift to commercial operation. Main problems of balloon technology are the life of balloons (being 100 days) and the method of retrieval and reuse of the balloon that has fallen or brought down. I would like to know the data on reliability of operation, cost benefits compared existing systems!

Unbridled development in the #cities have encroached the lands of #waterBodies leading to imbalance on the #ecological system. It also causes havoc to the cities with #floods during #monsoonRains. Though delayed in restoring water bodies by civic authorities, I am happy that it is happening in #Chennai.

We are already experiencing in our neighborhood tweeting, chirping, cawing, cooing by #birds early in the morning regularly. These sounds are also heard during the day time irregularly. Happy to realize that an ecological balance is returning to this city. Ecological balance help conservation of energy also!

It is a fact that #battery #cost is the major component of the #electricCar price. It's replacement within four to five years would increase the cost of #maintenance. The #government of #India initiative in pushing electric vehicle for use in government offices is a good idea, but the users (government officials) like to have the versatility of #gasoline cars. It is a trade off that users have to recognize and get attuned to the limitations of #range. Wish that battery price comes down drastically to make affordable long range electric #vehicles.

I updated #AndroidMessages in my #smartphone to version 3.3.043 by side loading. The latest #update was not available in #AndroidPlayStore till now. Messages is trying to be what #WhatsApp is. The following features are noticed by me after the update.

I can use web version of #Messages by staying connected with my smartphone.

I could enable #darkTheme.

I could send #sms, #mms, stickers and emojis. I am not sure whether MMS is supported by my telecom service provider. It requires further investigation.

I can set group sms (and mms) to get reply to the group or to individuals.

Though late, it is welcome development for #Android Messages.

# GA (Google Assistant) is the voice of #machine that I converse irregularly. Though it understands some #actionableCommands and common #informationQueries, it is yet to catch up a lot on full #reliability. As AI (Artificial Intelligence) is infused in GA's #software, it is learning fast and improving. #Debate is more complex than casual #conversation. It requires more knowledge of the subject and also understanding the opponents line of argument. This article claims that a machine with advanced AI is able to debate with a knowledgeable person on a subject. It must be a great achievement for the developers!

This article tries to analyze the causes of #dustStorms witnessed in past few months in the northern and western parts of #India. The phenomenal change and causal factors are explained well. The reasons attributed are increase in #westernDisturbances from the middle-east, dryness of #soil due to global #surface #temperatureRise and change in wind patterns due to #ocean temperature rise. It is a well researched article. Though we can't do anything about #natural causes, we can do something, at least, to control #man-made factors. There should be unity of purpose among #governments, #planners, #activists and common #people!
