एक आयरन मैन सूट को उड़ाने के लिए एडम सैवेज को क्या चाहिए


मैं निष्पक्ष था के पहले एपिसोड से प्रभावित हुआ सैवेज बिल्ड, जो अब डिस्कवरी चैनल पर प्रसारित हो रहा है। यह मूल रूप से एक शो है जो एडम सैवेज (से) को देता है मिथबस्टर्स) वह जो चाहे करे। इस मामले में, वह एक वास्तविक जीवन में आयरन मैन सूट बनाने का प्रयास करता है। SPOILER ALERT: वह ज्यादातर सफल होता है। यह टाइटेनियम में आयरन मैन कवच के टुकड़ों को प्रिंट करके और फिर उसके ऊपर ग्रेविटी इंडस्ट्रीज से जेट सूट को जोड़कर पूरा किया जाता है। हाँ, वहाँ एक वास्तविक जीवन उड़ान सूट है। यह कई छोटे जेट इंजनों का उपयोग करता है ताकि मानव को उड़ान भरने के लिए पर्याप्त जोर दिया जा सके। यहाँ मेरा पिछला विश्लेषण है जो उड़ान के लिए आवश्यक शक्ति को देखता है। (आप एपिसोड को मुफ्त में देख सकते हैं, कम से कम अभी के लिए।)

लेकिन क्या एक सामान्य इंसान इस चीज़ को उड़ा सकता है? शायद। ऐसा हो सकता है। एडम ने इसे आजमाया और इस जेट-संचालित सूट को उड़ाना सीखना शुरू किया, लेकिन वह टाइटेनियम आयरन मैन कवच पहनने की अतिरिक्त कठिनाई के साथ इसे उड़ाने के लिए तैयार नहीं था। इसके बजाय रिचर्ड ब्राउनिंग (ग्रेविटी इंडस्ट्रीज के संस्थापक) आयरन मैन पायलट थे। एक वास्तविक फ्लाइंग आयरन मैन को देखने का दृश्य प्रभाव महाकाव्य था।

अब कुछ भौतिकी के लिए। आप इस उड़ान सूट को कैसे नियंत्रित करते हैं? इस सूट में पायलट की पीठ पर एक मुख्य जेट इंजन होता है जिसमें प्रत्येक हाथ पर दो छोटे जेट होते हैं। इसका मतलब है कि पायलट केवल आर्म पोजिशन में बदलाव करके और जेट इंजन के जोर को समायोजित करने के लिए भी सूट को नियंत्रित नहीं कर सकता है। यह एक शांत डिजाइन है।

आइए देखें कि आप अलग-अलग गतियों के लिए अपनी बाजुओं को किस तरह से (उस दिन के लिए जब आप पायलट हों)।

मँडरा और ऊर्ध्वाधर गति

जब शुरू होता है, तो पायलट अपनी बांहों को एक कोण पर रखता है। इसका मतलब है कि मानव पर अनिवार्य रूप से चार बल हैं। पीछे के जेट से नीचे की ओर गुरुत्वाकर्षण बल और ऊपर (और थोड़े कोण पर) बल होता है। अंत में, आर्म जेट्स से दो एंगल्ड फोर्स हैं। यहाँ एक सरल बल आरेख है जब सूट एक हॉवर (स्थिर और जमीन से दूर) में होता है:

ठीक है रुको। इससे पहले कि हम इन बलों के बारे में बात करते हैं, चलो कुछ बहुत ही बुनियादी भौतिकी पर चलते हैं। सबसे पहले, गुरुत्वाकर्षण बल है। आरेख पर, यह इस प्रकार दिखाई देता है मिलीग्राम कहा पे मीटर मानव पिंड का द्रव्यमान है और जी गुरुत्वाकर्षण क्षेत्र है। पृथ्वी की सतह पर, गुरुत्वाकर्षण क्षेत्र में लगभग 9.8 न्यूटन प्रति किलोग्राम का परिमाण है।

लेकिन बल भी क्या करते हैं? सबसे बुनियादी बल-गति संबंध यह कहता है कि किसी वस्तु पर कुल वेक्टर बल (शुद्ध बल) वस्तु के त्वरण के समानुपाती होता है। इसका मतलब है कि एक पायलट को जगह में मंडराने के लिए, कुल बल शून्य होना चाहिए। यदि शुद्ध बल ऊपर की दिशा में है, तो मानव ऊपर की ओर गति करेगा।

चूंकि हमें शुद्ध बल की आवश्यकता है, इसलिए निम्न समीकरण के रूप में शुद्ध बल लिखें:

इस समीकरण के लिए कुछ महत्वपूर्ण नोट हैं।

  • चर पर "तीर" का मतलब है कि वे वैक्टर हैं। वैक्टर सूचना के एक से अधिक टुकड़ों के साथ चर रहे हैं। यदि आप चर के इन दो भागों के बारे में "परिमाण" और "दिशा" के रूप में सोचना चाहते हैं, तो यह बहुत बुरा नहीं है। लेकिन यह वास्तव में महत्वपूर्ण है कि ये वेक्टर मात्राएं हैं।
  • यही वजह है कि मिलीग्राम सकारात्मक और नकारात्मक नहीं? अहा! यह एक सामान्य छात्र त्रुटि है जो मैं देख रहा हूं। गुरुत्वाकर्षण क्षेत्र के लिए वेक्टर दिशा (जी) नीचे बताया गया है। वह पहले से ही चर में है। आपको इसमें एक और नकारात्मक जोड़ने की ज़रूरत नहीं है – जो कि सभी समीकरणों को गड़बड़ कर देगा।
  • ओह! "बाएं" जेट बल पायलट के दाईं ओर है! नहीं, मेरे चित्र में, पायलट स्क्रीन का सामना कर रहा है। पायलट पीछे नहीं है, आप पीछे हैं।
  • शून्य पर तीर क्या है? वह शून्य वेक्टर है। यह सादे शून्य से अलग है। शून्य वेक्टर सभी दिशाओं में शून्य न्यूटन का एक बल है। इसमें एक शून्य x- घटक, एक शून्य y- घटक और एक शून्य z- घटक है। मेरा विश्वास करो – शून्य वेक्टर महत्वपूर्ण है। ज्यादातर परिचयात्मक पाठ्यपुस्तकें इससे बचती हैं।

लेकिन अगर आप जेट का जोर नहीं बदलते हैं, तो आप मँडरा से ऊपर की ओर तेजी से कैसे जा सकते हैं? कुंजी जेट हथियारों का जोर कोण है। मान लीजिए कि पायलट हॉवरिंग मोड में है। इसका मतलब है कि y- दिशा में शुद्ध बल शून्य होना चाहिए। नोट: जब हम केवल बलों के घटकों के बारे में बात कर रहे हैं, तो वे एक आयामी हैं और इस प्रकार वैक्टर नहीं हैं। तो, इस होवर के लिए हमारे पास y- दिशा में 4 बल हैं। वहाँ पीछे जोर और गुरुत्वाकर्षण है – लेकिन फिर दो हाथ जेट से ऊर्ध्वाधर बल का एक घटक है। मुझे इन आर्म जेट्स में से सिर्फ एक ड्रा करना है।

किसी भी वेक्टर बल को अलग-अलग बलों में विभाजित किया जा सकता है। बल को एक भाग में तोड़ना उपयोगी है जो कि x- दिशा में इंगित हो रहा है और y- दिशा में एक भाग है। (इसके अलावा आप z- दिशा को वास्तविक जीवन 3 डी में है के बाद से कर सकते हैं।) चूंकि x और y एक दूसरे के लंबवत हैं, ये घटक एक सही त्रिकोण के किनारे बनाते हैं। इसका मतलब है कि आप मध्य विद्यालय में सीखे गए उस त्रिकोणमिति सामान का उपयोग करके इन घटक बलों का परिमाण जान सकते हैं। बल के x- और y- घटक जेट इंजन थ्रस्ट एंगल पर निर्भर करते हैं।

बड़ी बात, ठीक है? हां, यह बहुत बड़ी बात है। अब आप देख सकते हैं कि ऊपर की ओर कैसे तेज करें। आपको अधिक ऊर्ध्वाधर जोर की आवश्यकता होगी। जेट इंजन थ्रॉटल को बदलने के बिना, आप बस अपनी बाहों को अपने शरीर के करीब खींच सकते हैं। ऐसा करने से एक बड़ा बल कोण उत्पन्न होगा (ऊपर चित्र में a) बल का अधिक से अधिक y- घटक उत्पन्न करने के लिए। अब एक शुद्ध ऊपर की ओर बल जा रहा है और आप तेजी लाएंगे।

यह हाथ आंदोलन एक्स-दिशा में जोर को भी बदलता है। इसे घटाता है। लेकिन यह ठीक है क्योंकि आपके पास दो हथियार हैं। हथियारों पर दो जेट इंजन एक्स-दिशा में बल उत्पन्न करते हैं। लेकिन जब से वे विपरीत दिशाओं में होते हैं, ये बल रद्द कर देते हैं। इसलिए जब तक आप दोनों बाहों के साथ एक ही काम करते हैं, आप ठीक हैं।

आगे जा रहा है

कोई सिर्फ मंडराना नहीं चाहता। यदि आप आयरन मैन हैं, तो आप हमेशा वास्तव में उड़ना और स्थानों पर जाना चाहते हैं, है ना? आगे तेजी लाने के लिए, आपको अपने जेट हाथों को पीछे की ओर करने की आवश्यकता है – बस थोड़ा सा। बैक जेट के कोण के आधार पर, आप सीधे अपनी भुजाओं को इंगित करने में सक्षम हो सकते हैं। यहाँ एक आरेख है, जो लौह पुरुष की ओर से देख रहा है:

ध्यान दें कि अब पीछे जेट से बल का एक आगे का घटक है। यदि जेट हथियार पीछे नहीं धकेलते हैं, तो पीछे वाले जेट के लिए बल का यह एक्स-घटक एकमात्र बल होगा जो आगे बढ़ाएगा। पायलट तब गति करेगा। यदि कोई अन्य ताकतें नहीं हैं, तो उड़ान मानव इस स्थिति में गति में वृद्धि करना जारी रखेगा। एक बार वांछित गति से आप अपनी भुजाओं को वापस उसी स्थिति में लाएँगे, जिस पर मँडरा रहे हैं। याद रखें, एक स्थिर गति से चलते समय आपको शुद्ध बल की आवश्यकता नहीं होती है – आपको इसे तेज करने की आवश्यकता है। ठीक है, अगर आप पर एक महत्वपूर्ण एयर ड्रैग फोर्स अभिनय है, तो यह आपके बलों को थोड़ा बदल देगा। मैं सिर्फ अनुमान लगा रहा हूं कि आप अपनी पहली कोशिश में सुपर-फास्ट उड़ने वाले नहीं हैं।

ओह, इस त्वरण के दौरान आपको अपनी बाहों को समायोजित करना पड़ सकता है। यह संभव है कि आपकी भुजाएं पीछे की ओर झुक कर आगे की ओर झुकें, आप लंबवत बलों को बदलते हैं। चिंता मत करो, बस क्षतिपूर्ति करने के लिए एक बड़ा ऊपर हाथ जेट बल देने के लिए अपने शरीर के करीब अपनी बाहों को खींचें।

घूर्णन और पक्ष की ओर बढ़ने के बारे में क्या? बग़ल में गति ऊपर के समान है। आप बस उस दिशा में एक शुद्ध बल चाहते हैं ताकि तेजी आए। जब आप रोकने के लिए तैयार होते हैं, तो आपको अपने आप को धीमा करने के लिए शुद्ध पिछड़े बल की आवश्यकता होगी।

रोटेशन के लिए, आपको पायलट पर शुद्ध टोक़ पर भी विचार करना होगा – जहाँ टोक़ एक घूर्णी बल की तरह होता है। लेकिन बहुत आगे कूद मत करो। बस इसे अभी के लिए बुनियादी रखें। एक बार जब आप मँडराते हैं, तो हम टोक़ और घुमाव के बारे में बात कर सकते हैं।

2019 सुबारू वनपाल: क्या आप अपनी कार की जासूसी करना चाहते हैं?


2019 सबारू फोर्सेटर कंपनी के DriverFocus विकर्षण शमन प्रणाली को डिबेट करता है; उन्नत नेत्र ट्रैकिंग तकनीक के माध्यम से कार चालक की थकान, व्याकुलता या अधिक संभावना, बोरियत का पता लगा सकती है। मुझे लगता है कि यह उस क्षण का भी पता लगा सकता है जब चालक इंजन के एंकोरेलिंग ड्रोन के कारण ट्रान्स में फिसल जाता है … Ommmmmm।

जबकि इस कार के कई हिस्से उत्तेजक हैं- फॉरेस्टर टूरिंग के लिए मूल्य / फीचर मैट्रिक्स ($ 35,270, जैसा कि परीक्षण किया गया है) फ्लैट-आउट का कमाल है- 2.5-लीटर, 182-hp फ्लैट-फोर और लगातार चर संचरण (CVT) से प्रदर्शन ) काफ़ी अच्छा लगता है। एक प्रणाली जो उनींदापन का पता लगाती है वह एक आत्म-सूजन वाले घाव की तरह लगती है।

जाहिर है, मैं ऐसी किसी भी चीज़ के पक्ष में हूं जो मदर अर्थर्स को आगे के ट्रैफ़िक में डुबाने से रोकती है। लेकिन मुझे कहना होगा कि आंखों की गति पर आधारित एक सुरक्षा प्रणाली आश्चर्यजनक रूप से अंतरंग है, यहां तक ​​कि घुसपैठ भी। मैंने देखा जब मैं अपनी पत्नी के साथ ड्राइव कर रहा था कि सिस्टम बातचीत के दौरान मेरी आंखों की पुतलियों को पंजीकृत करेगा और डैश पर चेतावनी का संकेतक फेंक देगा: "आइज़ आइज़ ऑन रोड।" टीना जैसी थी। उह-हुह, देखिए? कार, ​​तुम मेरे साथ शुरू नहीं करते

1998 से मॉडल-वर्ष के बाद से फॉरेस्टर की यह पांचवीं डिजाइन पीढ़ी है, लंबे समय से बच्चों के लिए पहली जीन-फॉरेस्टर में कल्पना की गई है – योसेमाइट में वह जादुई रात, याद रखें? – बड़े होकर अपनी खुद की खरीद लें (माँ और पिताजी की पुरानी ड्राइविंग करें) अजीब होगा)। यह कहने के लिए कि फॉरेस्टर को क्रॉसओवर एसयूवी के ka-jillions के टेम्प्लेट को कॉल करने की लालच है, लेकिन निश्चित रूप से विशेषताओं के इस विशेष वेन आरेख वाली कारों को बनाने के लिए कोई और नहीं गया: पूर्णकालिक, यांत्रिक ऑल-व्हील ड्राइव; पर्याप्त बर्फ़बारी ख़त्म करने की मंजूरी; गुरुत्वाकर्षण के निचले केंद्र को प्रदान करने वाले सामने के सामने क्षैतिज रूप से विरोध किया गया इंजन; और बेहतर रोड-होल्डिंग चरित्र।

Edmunds.com के अनुसार, टोयोटा के बाद उद्योग में दूसरे सबसे बड़े मालिक ब्रांड के प्रति वफादारी के साथ, सुबारू ने इस पूरे वाहन गर्भाधान का स्वामित्व किया, जिसने लगातार 83 महीनों की मासिक बिक्री में वृद्धि दर्ज की। ये सुबारू के किले के पत्थर हैं।

लेकिन quirky आईपी तरह का मालिक सुबारू भी है। ब्रांड की यांत्रिक विशिष्टता के कारण, कारों को विकसित करना कठिन होता है और इसलिए कम और कोई उत्सर्जन नहीं करने वाले बाजार में तकनीकी अप्रासंगिकता का जोखिम होता है।

उदाहरण: लगभग सभी सबिज़ की तरह, फॉरेस्टर में एक मजबूत ऑल-व्हील ड्राइव सिस्टम है, जिसमें इलेक्ट्रो-हाइड्रॉलिक रूप से सक्रिय केंद्र अंतर विभाजन टॉर्क होता है और इसे हर समय फ्रंट और रियर एक्सल पर भेजा जाता है। शानदार, अपराजेय, व्यवसाय में सर्वश्रेष्ठ। समस्या यह है कि इस तरह की प्रणाली एक विशिष्ट अंशकालिक, ऑन-डिमांड AWD प्रणाली की तुलना में अधिक घर्षण नुकसान को जन्म देती है, और यह लाभ का माइलेज है। नए फॉरेस्टर की औसत ईंधन अर्थव्यवस्था को 29 mpg संयुक्त रूप से रेट किया गया है, और यह केवल अच्छी तरह से थ्रॉटल किए गए इंजन के माध्यम से प्राप्त होता है।

व्यवसाय के लिए खुला परिवार के अनुकूल वनपाल की अधिकतम कार्गो क्षमता 70.9 क्यूबिक फीट होती है, जिसमें सीटें मुड़ी हुई होती हैं।

सुबारू

एक और उदाहरण: स्टाइल। वैश्विक स्तर पर नए सिरे से डिज़ाइन किए गए फ़ॉरेस्ट, अगले छह वर्षों के लिए वे जिस कार का निर्माण करेंगे, वह लगभग वैसी ही दिखाई देगी, जैसा कि वे पिछले छह वर्षों से बना रहे हैं। जब आप इसे पार्किंग स्थल के रूप में देखते हैं, तो स्वयं लगाया गया प्रतिरूपण वास्तव में आप पर कूद पड़ता है। इसके डिजाइनरों ने भी फॉरेस्टर के अनुपात में एक अजीबता को संहिताबद्ध किया है, जिसमें सूजन वाली, एसयूवी जैसी यात्री और कार्गो स्पेस, एक कृत्रिम की तरह सेडान की नाक पहने हुए है।

इसलिए यह कहना पर्याप्त नहीं है कि वनपाल सुस्त दिख रहा है और थोड़ा सुस्त है। यह इन गुणों को ब्रांड वैल्यू के रूप में ग्रहण करता है।

अन्य क्षेत्रों में विवश होकर, सुबारू के विपणक ने फॉरेस्टर के मूल्य प्रस्ताव को शून्य पर अपरिवर्तनीय रूप से बढ़ाया है। कृपया टूरिंग ट्रिम लेवल पर विचार करें, जिसमें DriverFocus के साथ-साथ सूबे का सेंसर आधारित ड्राइवर सहायता भी शामिल है; नेवी के साथ 8-इंच, ऐप-आधारित इंफोटेनमेंट टच स्क्रीन; ऐप्पल कारप्ले और एंड्रॉइड ऑटो के साथ हरमन कार्डन ध्वनि प्रणाली; चमड़े की सामग्री; गर्म सीटों के पीछे की सीटें; वाहन में वाई-फाई हॉट स्पॉट; और मनोरम सनरूफ। टूरिंग में एक्स-मोड सिस्टम भी मिलता है, जिसे कार की पहाड़ी चढ़ाई और पहाड़ी-वंश प्रदर्शन में सुधार के लिए डिज़ाइन किया गया है।

अपने रोल को कम करें भारी-भरकम फॉरेस्टर लाइन से संघर्ष करता है, 60 मील प्रति घंटे तक पहुंचने में लगभग 10 सेकंड लगते हैं।

तस्वीर:

सुबारू

फोई ग्रैस टूरिंग मॉडल के लिए 3,588 पाउंड के अंकुश के वजन के साथ फीचर्स को जोड़ा गया है, जो इसे हर फाइबर को छलनी करते हुए 9.6 सेकंड के 0-60 मील प्रति घंटे के त्वरण पर रखता है।

इसलिए नया फॉरेस्टर विशेष रूप से त्वरित या तेज़ नहीं है, और यदि आप इसे मुश्किल से संशोधित करते हैं, तो यह स्प्रिंग भेड़-कतरन की तरह बह जाएगा। और टर्बोचार्ज्ड संस्करण की प्रतीक्षा न करें – यह नहीं आ रहा है। लेकिन फॉरेस्टर टूरिंग काफी तेज और शांत है। यह लगभग कहीं भी एक एसयूवी जाएगा, इसमें 1,500 पाउंड रस्सियों की क्षमता है, और यह गिल्स को लोड करता है। कार में आपको और क्या चाहिए?

मुझे ऐसे देखना बंद करो।

अमेज़ॅन पर सैमसंग गियर एस 3 स्मार्टवॉच ड्रॉप्स को $ 180 के तहत नवीनीकृत किया गया


क्लासिक और फ्रंटियर 0302 पर सैमसंग गियर s3 स्मार्टवाच समाचार हाथ
मलारी गोकि / डिजिटल ट्रेंड्स

ऐप्पल स्मार्टवॉच के बाजार पर हावी हो सकता है, लेकिन अगर आप एक एंड्रॉइड प्रकार के तकनीकी विशेषज्ञ हैं और आपके पास Apple वॉच से सबसे अधिक लाभ उठाने में मदद करने के लिए iPhone नहीं है, तो गेम में वास्तव में केवल एक ही बड़ा नाम है आपके समय के लायक: सैमसंग। सैमसंग अभी भी एंड्रॉइड स्मार्टफ़ोन पर आने के रास्ते को आगे बढ़ाता है, इसलिए यह कोई झटका नहीं है कि यह तकनीकी दिग्गज आज भी सबसे अच्छा एंड्रॉइड-आधारित वियरब्रांड उपलब्ध कराता है; यदि आप नवीनीकरण खरीदने के इच्छुक हैं, तो हमारा एक सर्वकालिक पसंदीदा, सैमसंग गियर S3, अभी भारी छूट पर बिक्री पर है। हालाँकि, यदि आप उस तरह की चीज़ में हैं, तो हमें बहुत कम Apple वॉच डील मिली हैं

सैमसंग गियर S3 वियर OS (पूर्व में Android Wear) पर चलता है और सॉफ्टवेयर की एक व्यापक श्रेणी के साथ संगत है, जिसमें सबसे लोकप्रिय फिटनेस और स्वास्थ्य ऐप से लेकर ऑडियो स्ट्रीमिंग सेवाएं और बहुत कुछ है। यहां तक ​​कि अगर आपके पास एक आईफोन है, तो आप इसे अपने गियर एस 3 के साथ सिंक कर सकते हैं – एक फर्मवेयर अपडेट के लिए धन्यवाद, यह स्मार्टवॉच अब एंड्रॉइड और आईओएस दोनों डिवाइसों के साथ काम करती है, इसलिए ऐप्पल की भीड़ पीछे नहीं रहती है। गियर एस 3 की सबसे अच्छी और सबसे सूक्ष्म विशेषताओं में से एक इसका आसान घूर्णन बेजल है। यह ऐप्स को इतनी आसानी से और सहज रूप से नियंत्रित और नियंत्रित करता है कि कुछ समय के लिए उपयोग करने के बाद, आपको आश्चर्य होगा कि प्रत्येक स्मार्टवॉच एक के साथ क्यों नहीं आती है।

यह वेयर ओएस स्मार्टवॉच दो स्वादों में आती है: पुराने स्कूल "क्लासिक" डिज़ाइन, जिसमें एक गोल स्टेनलेस केस और लेदर बैंड, और अधिक स्पोर्टी "फ्रंटियर" मॉडल है जो एक कठिन गनमेटल-रंग के आवास और रबर कलाई का पट्टा समेटे हुए है। दोनों बहुत अच्छे दिखते हैं और आधुनिक शैली के चौकोर आकार के वियरबल्स से एक स्पष्ट प्रस्थान है जो आज आम हैं, और आपको डाउनलोड करने योग्य डायल चेहरों का ढेर – डिजिटल रीडआउट से लेकर अनुरूप एनालॉग वॉच हाथों तक – जिसमें से चुनना है।

सैमसंग गियर एस 3 लगभग $ 300 की सड़क कीमत में बसने से पहले $ 350 के लिए सेवानिवृत्त हुआ, और केवल हाल ही में इन एंड्रॉइड स्मार्टवॉच $ 250 से नीचे गिर गए हैं। अमेज़ॅन ने पेशेवर रूप से मॉडल (दोनों में) नवीनीकृत किया है पारंपरिक दिखने वाला S3 क्लासिक साथ ही साथ बीहड़ S3 फ्रंटियर) बिक्री पर फिलहाल $ 180 के लिए, यू.एस. वारंटी कवरेज के साथ पूरा करें। यदि आप वास्तव में एक नया खरीदना चाहते हैं, हालांकि, तो आप वर्तमान में कर सकते हैं $ 229 के लिए गियर एस 3 फ्रंटियर स्कोर करें – अभी भी हम देखे गए सर्वोत्तम मूल्यों में से एक हैं।

एंटी-स्पैम सर्विस Truecaller में फ्री वॉयस कॉलिंग फीचर – TechCrunch शामिल है


Truecaller, एक ऐप जो अजनबियों और स्पैमर्स से उपयोगकर्ताओं की स्क्रीन कॉल की मदद करने के लिए जाना जाता है, वह अपनी सेवा में अभी तक एक और फीचर जोड़ रहा है क्योंकि यह अपने ऐप को स्टेटस में बदल देता है। स्टॉकहोम-आधारित फर्म ने आज कहा कि उसके ऐप का इस्तेमाल अब मुफ्त वीओआईपी-संचालित वॉयस कॉल करने के लिए किया जा सकता है।

कंपनी ने मंगलवार को TechCrunch को बताया कि उसने अपने एंड्रॉइड पर मुफ्त वॉयस कॉलिंग सुविधा शुरू करना शुरू कर दिया है उपयोगकर्ताओं। यह आने वाले दिनों में सभी एंड्रॉइड उपयोगकर्ताओं तक रोलआउट की उम्मीद करता है। यह सुविधा, जो वर्तमान में केवल दो उपयोगकर्ताओं के बीच कॉल का समर्थन करती है, जल्द ही इसके iOS ऐप पर आ जाएगी।

भारत जैसे उभरते बाजारों में, जहां 100 मिलियन ट्रूकॉलर के 140 मिलियन उपयोगकर्ता रहते हैं, मुफ्त वॉयस कॉल सुविधा के बाद लंबे समय से मांग की गई है। 2016 के अंत तक, भारत में वॉइस कॉल काफी महंगे थे, दूरसंचार ऑपरेटरों ने अपने सबसे बड़े लाभ जनरेटर के रूप में पारंपरिक कॉल से राजस्व की गिनती की।

लेकिन पिछले ढाई वर्षों में, भारत के सबसे अमीर व्यक्ति मुकेश अंबानी के स्वामित्व वाले टेलीकॉम ऑपरेटर, रिलायंस जियो के बाद भारत में लाखों लोगों के लिए चीजें नाटकीय रूप से बदल गई हैं, मुफ्त वॉयस कॉल और कम कीमत वाली डेटा सेवाओं के साथ अपना नेटवर्क लॉन्च किया। रिलायंस जियो पहले ही 300 मिलियन से अधिक उपयोगकर्ताओं को राष्ट्र में शीर्ष तीन टेलीकॉम में से एक बनने के लिए तैयार कर चुका है।

फिर भी, नेटवर्क की गुणवत्ता अभी भी भारत में वांछित होने के लिए बहुत कुछ छोड़ देती है क्योंकि पारंपरिक कॉल अचानक घट जाती हैं और गुणवत्ता के मुद्दों में एक से अधिक बार चलना होता है। Truecaller ने कहा कि उसकी वॉयस कॉल डेटा सेवाओं – मोबाइल डेटा और वाई-फाई पर निर्भर हैं और दावा किया है कि वे पैचवर्क नेटवर्क पर भी तेजी से काम कर सकते हैं।

वॉयस कॉलिंग कार्यक्षमता के अलावा Truecaller आक्रामक रूप से अपने व्यवसाय का विस्तार करने के लिए लग रहा है। सेवा, जो विज्ञापन-समर्थन मुक्त स्तरीय और सदस्यता बंडल प्रदान करती है, ने हाल के वर्षों में संदेश, मोबाइल भुगतान और कॉल रिकॉर्डिंग सुविधाएँ जोड़ी हैं। इस साल की शुरुआत में, इसने एक क्रेडिट विकल्प भी जोड़ा, जिससे भारत में उपयोगकर्ताओं को कुछ सौ डॉलर उधार लेने की अनुमति मिली।

कंपनी के एक प्रतिनिधि ने कहा कि Truecaller ने कुछ महीने पहले फ्री वॉयस कॉलिंग फीचर की खोज शुरू की थी। इसने चार सप्ताह पहले अल्फा और बीटा परीक्षण समूह उपयोगकर्ताओं के साथ नई कार्यक्षमता का परीक्षण शुरू किया। अब इसकी योजना जल्द ही ग्रुप वॉयस कॉलिंग सपोर्ट शुरू करने की है।

नए फीचर के साथ, Truecaller अब व्हाट्सएप के साथ और भी अधिक प्रतिस्पर्धा करता है । फेसबुक के स्वामित्व वाला ऐप भारत में सर्वव्यापी हो गया है, जो ऐप का उपयोग करके भारत के तीन-चौथाई से अधिक स्मार्टफोन बेस के साथ है। व्हाट्सएप ने 2015 में अपने ऐप में वॉयस कॉलिंग फीचर जोड़ा था। पिछले साल, फेसबुक ने कहा था कि दुनिया भर के उपयोगकर्ता व्हाट्सएप वीडियो और ऑडियो कॉल पर प्रति दिन 2 बिलियन मिनट खर्च कर रहे हैं।

फेसबुक को एक बात सही लगी: आज का पैसा हर किसी के काम नहीं आता। हममें से जो विकसित राष्ट्रों में आराम से रह रहे हैं, उनमें प्रवासी श्रमिकों या विदेश में रहने वाले लोगों के कष्टों को देखने की संभावना नहीं है। लालची payday उधारदाताओं और उच्च शुल्क प्रेषण सेवाओं के आधार पर शिकारियों द्वारा लक्षित, और पारंपरिक वित्तीय सेवाओं को छोड़ दिया जाता है, तो गरीब गरीब हो जाते हैं। तुला के पास काम करने वाले माता-पिता से अपने परिवारों को अधिक धन प्राप्त करने और लोगों को क्रेडिट रखने में मदद करने की क्षमता है, भले ही वे अपनी भौतिक संपत्ति लूट रहे हों। यह फेसबुक के मिशन को पूरा करने के लिए दुनिया के सभी न्यूज फीड लाइक की तुलना में छोटा महसूस करने के लिए अधिक काम करेगा।

[Disclosures: Josh Constine temporarily advised a college friend's social location-sharing startup codenamed 'Signal' that was based in San Francisco before dissolving in 2015. This advising role was cleared with AOL and TechCrunch's editors and has concluded. Constine's fiancu00e9e Andee Gardiner co-founded startup accelerator Founders Embassy. Constine's cousin Darren Lachtman is the founder of influencer advertising startup Niche that was acquired by Twitter, and he's since left and founded teen content studio Brat. Constine does not write about Founders Embassy or Brat. Constine has personal acquaintances stemming from college housing circa 2007 with founders at Skybox Imaging (now Terra Bella), Hustle, Snapchat, and Robinhood, but does not maintain close social ties with them nor does that influence his writing. Constine occasionally does paid speaking engagements at conferences, but only those funded by companies he does not cover. Constine owns a small position in Ethereum and Bitcoin cryptocurrencies, does not day-trade, and discloses his positions directly in articles where appropriate. Constine does not do consulting, angel investing, or public stock trading beyond public stock invesments by his parents' estate that he has no role in managing or advising.]

The first time I showed the Palm phone to the TechCrunch staff, they were excited. At the very least, it was a unique take on the category, designed to be a second phone for those moments that didnu2019t require a larger, bulkier device.

But reality set in pretty quickly. The deviceu2019s capabilities were severely limited by a number of factors, including size. The biggest issue, however, was a Verizon exclusive that only let users purchase the device as a second handset tied to an existing account.

Back in April, the company announced that the 3.3-inch phone could be purchased as a standalone device u2014 albeit still through Verizon or US Mobile. Today, itu2019s expanding that, making the handset available unlocked, so it will work with AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and MetroPCS SIMs.

The phoneu2019s available u201cat onlyu201d $350. Thatu2019s cheap compared to many full-sized, mid-tier handsets, but cheapness is certainly a relative concept. It still seems like a lot for a second phone, and while itu2019s certainly adorable, Iu2019d strongly advise against anyone using it as a primary handset. Heck, itu2019s not even all that great as a standalone MP3 player.

If youu2019re still interested, you can pre-order it today u2014 and Palm will throw in a $30 leather case with neck and wrist lanyards. It starts shipping in six to eight weeks.

So explain this to a dummy…

How can you use it as a second phone when the carriers won’t sell you two valid/live SIM cards that both point to the same phone number?

Three years ago, I met with a founder who had raised a massive seed round at a valuation that was at least five times the market rate. I asked what firm made the investment.

n

She said it was not a traditional venture firm, but rather au00a0strategic investor that not only had no ties to her space but also had no prior investment experience. The strategic investor, she said, was looking to u201cget their hands dirtyu201d and u201cget in on the ground floor.u201d

n

Over the next 2 years, I kept a close eye on the founder. Although she had enough capital to pivot her business focus multiple times, she seemed to be at odds, serving the needs of her strategic investor and her customer base.

n

Ultimately, when the business needed more capital to survive, the strategic investor didnu2019t agree with the founderu2019s focus, opted not to prop it up, and the business had to shut down.

n

Sadly, this is not an uncommon story as examples abound of strategic investors influencing startup direction and management decisions to the point of harm for the startup. Corporate strategics, not to be confused with dedicated funds focused on financial returns like a traditional venture investor like Google Ventures,u00a0often care less about return on investment, and more about a startupu2019s focus, and sector specificity. If corporate imperatives change, the strategicu00a0may cease to be the right partneru00a0or could push the startup inu00a0a challenging direction

n

And yet, fortunately, as the disruptive power of technology is being unleashed on nearly every major industry, strategic investors are now getting smarter, both in terms of howu00a0they investu00a0and how they partner with entrepreneurs.

n

From making strong acquisitive plays (i.e.u00a0GMu2019s purchase of Cruise Automationu00a0oru00a0Toyotau2019s early-stage investment in Uber) to buildingu00a0dedicated funds, to executing commercial agreements in tandem with capital investment, strategics are getting savvier, and by extension, becoming better partners.u00a0 In some instances, they may be the best partner.

n

Negotiating a term sheet with a strategic investor necessitates a different set of considerations. Namely: the preference for a strategic to facilitate commercial milestones for the startup, a cautious approach to avoid the u201cover-valuationu201d trap, an acute focus on information rights, and the limitation of non-compete provisions.

A number of incumbent banks are known to be developing new digital-first products in a bid to keep the new wave of challenger banks at bay and now it appears that the latest to make that move is J.P. Morgan.

n

According to sources, the investment bank has begun recruiting for a secretive skunkworks project within London’s booming fintech industry. Very few details are known about what exactly J.P. Morgan plans to build, although TechCrunch understands the bank is busy hiring high level developers with full-stack and cloud-based dev skills for the new project, along with other personnel.

n

One source tells me that interested candidates are being asked to sign an NDA, and that the project is still in its formative stages. They say the plan is to essentially build a startup within a corporation that will be run independently and entirely separately from J.P. Morgan’s existing technology and businesses. The bank is only hiring for permanent positions rather than contractors in order to keep it “secret,” another source tells me. J.P. Morgan declined to comment.

n

Meanwhile, for the few people I’ve spoken to who have heard about the project there’s speculation that J.P. Morgan is developing a competitor to “Marcus,” the digital bank launched by Goldman Sachs that focuses on savings and offers a competitive interest rate. That would also put it up against challenger banks such as Atom, Tandem and savings marketplace Raisin

n

However, one source tells me they’ve heard that J.P. Morgan’s skunkworks project could in fact be a much more ambitious cloud-based banking platform on which numerous products can be launched. That would be more akin to a core banking SaaS platform or “AWS for Banking,” along the lines of Starling’s core banking product or Germany’s solarisBank or London’s 11:FS Foundry.

Sprint Tracker

Sprint’s new Tracker

n

The Tracker competes with Tile, but instead of Bluetooth, Sprintu2019s device uses 4G LTE, GPS and Wi-Fi location services, so it can be used to track things, people or pets that might travel a significant distance away, compared to a range of 100 ft to 300 ft for Tile (depending on the version). The Tracker is manufactured by Coolpad and users need to pay $2.50 per month for 24 months to cover the cost of the device, plus an additional $5 per month to connect it.

n

AT&T and Verizon both launched LTE trackers over the past year and Apple is also rumored to be working on a tracking device that connects to iPhones, based on an asset package for pairing devices by proximity spotted in the first beta of iOS 13 by 9to5Mac.

Getting an H-1B skilled-worker visa is like winning the lottery u2014 सचमुच: With the number of new visas issued each year capped at 85,000, most of this year’s over 200,000 applicants face disappointment. But if youu2019re already working in the United States, then youu2019ve already won the H-1B lottery, and that makes you a hot commodity.

n

With H-1Bs in short supply, successful companies frequently poach skilled workers. Everyone knows the tech sector thrives on this free exchange of people and ideas, so if another employer needs your skills, why not start working for them?

n

Well, not so fast. H-1B holders can work only for the company that originally sponsored their visa application. So if you want to change employers, youu2019ll need to u201ctransferu201d your H-1B.

n

That process used to be relatively straightforward but not in the Trump era। (Boundless recently underwent this process with an employee, so we understand the pain.) The denial rate for initial H-1B applications spiked over five-fold to 32 percent just in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, up from 6 percent in 2015. Crucially, the Trump administration is targeting u201ccontinuingu201d H-1B applications used by existing employees to either renew their H-1B or switch it to a new employer. Even tech giants like Amazon are now seeing double-digit rejection rates

n

n

The bottom line: The days of getting an H-1B transfer quickly rubber-stamped are long gone, and that makes it vital to do whatever you can to keep the odds in your favor. The stakes are high u2014 if things go south, you could lose your right to live and work in the United States. Hereu2019s what H-1B holders need to know about the right u2014 and wrong u2014 ways to set about switching employers:

n

Donu2019t take your transfer for granted.

n

First, understand that an H-1B u201ctransferu201d is actually a brand new visa application, not a simple handover of your existing H-1B visa from one employer to another u2014 thereu2019s no such thing.

A number of promising women’s health tech companies have popped up in the last few years, from fertility apps to ovulation bracelets — even Apple has jumped into the subject with the addition of period tracking built into the latest edition of the watch. But there hasn’t been much in the way of नवोन्मेष in women’s sexual health for decades.

In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is now a 40-year-old invention and even the top pharmaceutical companies have spent a pittance on research and development. Subjects like polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis and menopause have taken a backseat to other, more fatal concerns. Fertility is itself oftentimes a mysterious black box as well, though a full 10% of the female population in the United States has difficulty getting or staying pregnant.

That’s all starting to change as startups are now bringing in millions in venture capital to gather and treat women’s health. While it’s early days (no unicorns just yet) interest in the subject has been jumping steadily higher each year.

To shine a better light on the importance of tech’s role in spurring more innovation for women’s fertility, we asked five VCs passionate about the space for their investment strategies, including Sarah Cone (Social Impact Capital), Vanessa Larco (NEA), Anu Duggal (Female Founders Fund), Jess Lee (Sequoia) and Nancy Brown (Oak HC/FT)।

Buying a car is painful. Dealerships are the worst, and the options are endless. The rise of the Internet produced powerful tools for shoppers, but in the end, most buyers still have to trudge down to a car lot.

For this series of articles, TechCrunch spoke with several founders and investors attempting to rethink car buying. It’s clear these startups are the underdog in this fight. Most consumers buy cars the same way as their grandparents did and for good reason. Dealerships nationwide fought for years to enact laws and regulations that protect their businesses.

Several young companies are attempting to put the dealership online. Companies like Carvana, Shift, Vroom and Joydrive are putting the entire car buying process online, allowing customers to buy, trade-in and even test drive vehicles without talking to a salesman in an oversized golf pullover.

Tesla sells directly to consumers while Volvo, BMW, Mercedes and others are launching subscription options to give owners even more flexibility.

Three services dominate this space, and they were all founded in 2013. Carvana, Shift, and Vroom hit the market at the same time but have experienced different paths. One thing is clear though: it takes hundreds of millions of venture capital money to build an online dealership.

Emily Melton, co-founder and managing partner, Threshold Ventures (formally known as DFJ Ventures), points to consumeru2019s changing expectations and an optimized process across all kinds of vehicles. She co-led Shiftu2019s Series A in 2014.

Matt is a Managing Editor at TechCrunch.

nn

He started at TechCrunch as a freelance writer in 2008 and moved up the ranks to become the Managing Editor in early 2017. Born and raised in the heart of the automotive world, he has a special place in his heart for mobility startups and gadgets.

nn

At TechCrunch he manages the editorial side of the company's events including TechCrunch Disrupt, TechCrunch Sessions and the company's various worldwide events. Previously he was a freelance writer at Engadget and EngadgetHD where he hosted podcasts until he was removed from that role after saying a swear word. He's very sorry and promises it won't happen again.

nn

His passions include emails, run-on sentences and following through with action items developed during a conference call. And woodwork.

Truecaller, an app best known for helping users screen calls from strangers and spammers, is adding yet another feature to its service as it bolsters its super app status। The Stockholm-based firm said today that its app can now be used to place free VoIP-powered voice calls.

n

The company told TechCrunch on Tuesday that it has started to roll out the free voice calling feature to its Android users. It expects the rollout to reach all Android users in the coming days. The feature, which currently only supports calls between two users, will arrive on its iOS app soon.

In emerging markets such as India, where 100 million of Truecaller’s 140 million users live, free voice calls has been a long-sought after feature. Until late 2016, voice calls were fairly expensive in India, with telecom operators counting revenue from traditional calls as their biggest profit generator.

n

But in last two and a half years, things have changed dramatically for hundreds of millions of people in India after Reliance Jio, a telecom operator owned by Indiau2019s richest man Mukesh Ambani, launched its network with free voice calls and low-priced data services. Reliance Jio has already amassed over 300 million users to become one of the top three telcos in the nation.

Yet, the quality of network still leaves much to be desired in India as traditional calls drop abruptly and run into quality issues more often than one would like. Truecaller said that its voice calls rely on data services — mobile data and Wi-Fi — and claimed that they can work swiftly even on patchy network.

The addition of voice calling functionality comes as Truecaller aggressively looks to expand its business। The service, which offers both ad-support free tier and subscription bundle, has added messaging, mobile payments, and call recording features in recent years. Earlier this year, it also added a crediting option, allowing users in India to borrow a few hundred dollars.

A representative with the company said Truecaller began exploring the free voice calling feature a few months ago. It began testing the new functionality with alpha and beta test group users four weeks ago. It now plans to introduce group voice calling support soon, the company said.

With the new feature, Truecaller now competes even more closely with WhatsApp । The Facebook-owned app has become ubiquitous in India with more than three-quarters of Indiau2019s smartphone base using the app. WhatsApp added voice calling feature to its app in 2015। Last year, Facebook said users around the world were spending 2 billion minutes per day on WhatsApp video and audio calls.

The Stockholm-based firm said today that its app can now be used to place free VoIP-powered voice calls. The company told TechCrunch on Tuesday that it […]
