Xiaomi Mi Max 2 unboxing, testing & users review

The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is a well-designed and well-built device. Its performance is decent and it offers great battery life. If you like to watch videos or read books while on the go then the phone is an absolute pleasure to use. Its only flaws are the MIUI ROM which lacks some Nougat features and the camera which isn't great in all conditions. If you're looking for a quality device with a solid feel, but you don't like to shell out big bucks, then the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 should be on your wish list. Everything very good except the display's oleo phobic coating wears out fast then grease and fingerprints are your nightmare. Also the bottom speaker started to make noise after a year and a half or so of owning it. Xiaomi is a privately owned company that designs, develops, and sells smartphones, an Android-based OS, and other consumer electronics. Xiaomi also makes fitness trackers, TVs, air purifiers, and tablets. It has a skin for its Android phones and tablets – MIUI. The company largely sells its phones via flash sales in India.

This Nuclear Robot Could Tunnel for Alien Life on Europa3m13s

This Nuclear Robot Could Tunnel for Alien Life on Europa

At the American Geophysical Union’s conference in December 2018, scientists gathered from around the world to present their concepts for future space missions.There were dragonfly inspired drones for Titan, probes designed to take the temperature of Io’s volcanoes, but perhaps the coolest of them all: a tunneling worm robot designed to bore through Europa’s icy shell. The bot was designed by NASA’s COMPASS team, a group of engineers tasked with ideating system designs for space exploration missions. And Jupiter’s icy moon, Europa, is a prime target because there might be life there. For years, scientists have suspected Europa has an iron core, a rocky mantle, and a global ocean of liquid water. And, in 2013, the Hubble Space Telescope observed possible evidence of plumes of water on Europa’s surface, suggesting it’s geologically active. Scientists even think there could be hydrothermal vents on it’s seafloor supporting all kinds of alien life. This video, " This Nuclear Robot Could Tunnel for Alien Life on Europa ", first appeared on seeker.com .

Veken Mini RC Drone Quadricopter Review

I was 100% prepared to be let down by this mini drone, but my expectations have been MORE than exceeded. I'm shocked by all the flight options there are (even though they take a while to get the hang of) and how easy it is to control right out of the box. Very cool - and the LED lights are a plus! It comes with regular AA batteries for the remote control and two rechargeable batteries for the drone itself. The charger is a simple USB plug that you can plug the batteries in to in order to charge - really easy to figure out. There are simple flight options - one joystick controls the height, the other banks - and more advanced options - hold in the right top trigger to do a rise and flip - as well as incremental adjustments using some of the many small buttons on the controller face. It'd be nice if they were labeled better, but it's a small enough controller you will learn it by feel. All in all, I'm really impressed at what I got for the cost. I've had other "mini quadricopters" that did not last a day, and so far we've had a lot of fun playing with this. Still a bit too complicated for the 4-year-old to control, but both her and the 1-year-old love to watch it fly.

Little girl helps dad review remote control car5m21s

Little girl helps dad review remote control car

So far, I've been very impressed with this little RC vehicle. It's fast, easy to control, and the girls love it! It drives really well on medium-length carpet, which was what I was worried about initially - I wanted to make sure we could use this inside! It comes with two 9v batteries for the controller and 2 rechargeable battery packs for the car. I like that the batteries are rechargeable, but I would have preferred a non-rechargeable battery option as well. Rechargeable batteries eventually fade, and I'm not sure how high of quality these are. It would have been nice to have the option for 4 AA batteries in the vehicle itself as well. In our usage, the batteries seem to last long enough for some playtime - maybe 15 minutes or so. It's obvious when the batteries are starting to fade as the steering noticeably become less sharp and then the car eventually slows to a stop. The product description says it's "easy enough for a 5-year-old" - Leighton is 4 and she does pretty well (though steering while driving is a bit difficult for small hands), so I'd say that's accurate.

Man has simple solution if YouTube demonetized your channel4m27s

Man has simple solution if YouTube demonetized your channel

If YouTube recently shut down your monetization then you need to watch this. Without 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in a twelve month period, they will not allow your channel to be monetized. That means your videos won't earn you a dime. But there's a very simple way around this policy. A YouTube uploader explains how you can start earning again for views on your YouTube channel immediately. But restoring the earnings from your videos is only a small part of the good news. You’ll make far more than you ever did by doing almost the exact same work that you were always doing. It starts with a platform called Rumble. When you upload your videos on Rumble and chose "exclusive video management" it allows Rumble to file a copyright claim on your video. This means ads will be placed on the video and the views will earn you money again immediately. Rumble receives the revenue from the ads on your video and they give you 90% of those earnings. But that 10% commission they take is not going to worry you at all when you see how Rumble is actually going to earn you many times more than you were earning on YouTube. This former YouTuber was making a few dollars a month until he discovered Rumble. Now, he's making well over $1,000 each month by uploading videos. The reason that Rumble far surpasses YouTube for earning potential is that they pay their content creators 60% of ad revenue compared with the mere 15% that YouTube pays. AND Rumble promotes your videos in many ways. They market your videos to major platforms such as MSN, Yahoo, AOL, and many more. This creates exposure and views that you would never see on your YouTube channel. As if that weren’t enough , Rumble also makes use of YouTube for your benefit by placing approved videos on their Rumble Viral YouTube channel which has over 800,000 subscribers. This subscriber base is growing by more than 1,000 every day. The potential for earnings here are also enormous. Another way that they market videos is to license them to agencies looking for content for commercials and TV shows. This can be extremely lucrative for content creators. The process is the same in many ways. You upload videos and collect money from ad revenue. But when you upload to Rumble, they do the hard work for you. There is one difference with Rumble that needs to be understood. There is an approval system that ensures quality content is given full promotion. Obviously this benefits everyone and is the reason why Rumble can demand higher ad revenue. This allows them to match video content with advertisers for targeted marketing. Understanding this approval process and how to get the promotion that you need for maximum earnings doesn’t have to be confusing. Rumble offers accessible support from their staff, a community forum with members who are motivated to help each other, and your very own Rumble Coach. In this video, David McNab offers to coach you and help you build your channel the way he did. Restore your earnings on your YouTube channel right away, and start earning many times the revenue on top of that. Email David at mojo_videos@hotmail.com. YouTube demonetizing your channel isn’t the end of your earnings. It’s just the start.

The Practicality Of Diamond Shapes On Measuring Tape2m58s

The Practicality Of Diamond Shapes On Measuring Tape

Of course you know what a tape measurer is used for, but most people have no idea what those tiny black diamonds are for. It's one of those things that we've all seen, but likely wouldn't be able to tell you what it's used for. This might come in handy the next time you break out the tools to get some renovation work done on your home. One of the most mind-bending has to be the black diamonds which are on some versions. They usually sit above the numbers, nestled into the lines which show segments of an inch. It's pretty obvious they aren't just for decoration, but you probably have no idea what they are actually for. Well, turns out they are used by people who make a living in construction. It stands to reason those who make money for building will need tape measures that are a little more in depth than those of us who just get them out to check our height. The black diamonds are actually called truss marks (also known as stud or joist marks). A truss is a framework, usually meaning rafters, posts and struts which support a building. So those innocuous little marks actually help professionals with truss layouts, meaning it speeds up the process of knowing where each section of whatever you're laying should go. Unless you use a measuring tape daily, you may have never even noticed those small diamond-shaped details on the top scale. And, even if you have, we bet that you only have a best guess as to what they might mean.They’re not just cute, they’re also super helpful! What do these black diamonds mean anyways? The black diamond is meant to signify the center area between studs in a home or building. The symbol will always be set at the 19.2-inch mark, but to best use it to its advantage, you must first take the time to understand the “8-foot rule.” Unless you use a measuring tape daily, you may have never even noticed those small diamond-shaped details on the top scale. And, even if you have, we bet that you only have a best guess as to what they might mean.They’re not just cute, they’re also super helpful! What do these black diamonds mean anyways? The black diamond is meant to signify the center area between studs in a home or building. The symbol will always be set at the 19.2-inch mark, but to best use it to its advantage, you must first take the time to understand the “8-foot rule.” As the man in the video says: “Many tape measures add red numbers (or some other graphical standout) every 16-inches, a very common spacing for studs in house framing. This spacing allows for six supports in each 8-foot length. If you want to locate a center between the studs, the black diamond is your best bet”. The woodworker goes on explaining: “If you divide the 8-foot space we have been using by 5 we get a spacing of 19.2”. The black diamonds on the tape measure represent that spacing. The first black diamond is at 19.2” and after that black diamonds appear at 38.4”, 57.6”, 76.8” and 96”, or 8-feet. That is one less stud for every 8-feet of wall, counting the beginning and end studs”. Pretty cool, huh? Basically, if you know that your walls were built following this standard stud placement formula, then, instead of breaking out that cumbersome stud detector, you should be able to just use your measuring tape to locate them. Let's take a look at the video, shall we?

Bionic bartender never complains of long shifts

While cruising with Royal Caribbean on the Harmony of the Seas ship, Vivian just happened to stumble across The Bionic Bar. To order a drink, guests need to use one of the tablets found at any of the tables. Once in the Bionic Bar menu system, guests have the choice of selecting from pre-defined drink recipes, or creating their own concoctions. And there you have it, your drink made specially for you by a robot. Not quite the personal connection as some bars, but fun nonetheless!
