12 Dangerous Android Apps You Need to Delete Immediately

12 Dangerous Android Apps You Need to Delete Immediately

Pay attention to the list of the most suspicious apps you may come across in Google Play. Delete them from your phone immediately to protect your personal data and extend the life of your phone. Their creators promise the apps will optimize your device, extend the life of your battery and protect your phone from viruses. Some of them are even supposed to be lie detectors and defragmentation devices. In fact, all they give you is ads, and what they do is get access to your data and kill your battery. Considering the huge number of apps created every single day, not even Google can keep track and check the safety of all the new programs. So the security of your device mostly depends on you!

They can only analyze how much space certain programs take up, use your phone's resources and collect your personal data. -You will want to delete this app because it consumes tons of data since it’s full of ads and causes a massive drain of your battery. -Battery savers and fast chargers can’t really change the speed of your gadget charging, but can give you endless apps even on lock screen. -If you don't want these apps to get access to all your data, avoid them at all costs.

UNSETTLING Discoveries That Might Change History

UNSETTLING Discoveries That Might Change History

You might not think so but history isn’t something that is set in stone. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #7 - Life On Mars Since it has been introduced, we as a society have gotten used to the idea that Mars and probably other planets once had life on them. Although this is something we’ve come to accept to be true, did you know that there is a whole new side of Mars’ history that we didn’t even know about? Although Mars doesn’t look like it now, NASA members have seen evidence on the planet’s surface that leads them to believe that there was once a massive ocean covering a large portion of the northern hemisphere. With that much water, they say that the planet could have been both warm and wet which is an even better breeding ground for life than previously thought. #6 - Akrotiri On Thera The preserved excavation site pictured here is Akrotiri on Thera, a rich ancient city that could possibly be the source of the famous Atlantis. Just like what had happened to the poor people of Pompeii, the Aegean city of Akrotiri was also coated in a thick layer of ash preserving it throughout the ages. The eruption occurred in 1620 BC and wasn’t truly discovered until the 1960s. This almost perfectly preserved city shows an abundance of wealth that include some astounding paintings depicting Bronze Age life. This discovery gave the world a whole new look and understanding of the Mediterranean sea trade as well as Minoan art. #5 - Oracle Bone Writing There has been a recent discovery that could mean the Chinese were among the first to discover the Americas. Scattered around the southern United States was a collection of 82 old stones that don’t look like they fit in with anything else from the surrounding native cultures. The messages on the rocks are messages written in Chinese oracle bone script. Oracle bone script is one of the oldest forms of Chinese writings known. When deciphering these messages, words describing a journey seems as though it was written by people exploring a new world. If this is true then that means that the Chinese landed in North America over 3,000 years ago. #4 - There Are More Mayan Cities The strange squarish platform pictured here is thought to be a huge Mayan city that was discovered by a 15-year-old named William Gadoury. This Canadian boy has a theory that Mayans chose to place their cities by following the constellations. After establishing this theory, he figured that there must be another undiscovered city in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and judging by this picture, it looks like he may be right. The place in question hasn’t been seen in person yet but there have been curious sighting from space which is prompting an expedition. #3 - There’s More To King Tut’s Tomb Being lovers of ancient Egyptian history, we love the fact that there could possibly be more to King Tut’s tomb. When re-examining the chambers of the tomb with laser scans, Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves found what appeared to be not one but two additional, untouched chambers within the tomb. One of the chambers is thought to be hidden behind the wall you see in this picture. After being asked what he believed was behind door number one, Reeves said that he believes, and hopes, that it is the final resting place of Queen Nefertiti. Don’t worry, they aren’t going to just bring in a wrecking ball and smash in a wall, when they are ready to reveal what’s in the hidden tombs, they’ll most likely only drill tiny holes so they can insert cameras to look around. #2 - The Costa Rican Spheres If the sphere pictured here looks familiar it's because they have been a hot topic since they’ve been seen all around Costa Rica, sitting out in the sunshine, hanging out underwater, or like the one pictured here, almost buried completely under the dirt. It turns out that these spheres were left adorning certain towns and buildings depending on the person or people’s importance or title. The process it took to actually create these near perfect stones was such a lengthy and involved one that these stone couldn’t be given to just anyone, they had to have some sort of major social standing. #1 - Metal Books The two ancient books you see here are actually ancient texts in the form of metal books. The collection found was a total of 70 of these tiny books that measured to be about the size of a credit card. On the pages of these books are symbols, characters, and markings that are believed to possibly unlock some of the most questioned secrets of some of the first days of Christianity. The things these books say could end up changing the way we understand the Bible. Although it appears as though some of the markings refer to a Messiah, a Crucifixion, and possibly even a Resurrection, no one has been able to understand the full context of the language written.

10 Amazing Robots That Really Exist

10 Amazing Robots That Really Exist

Top most amazing and coolest ROBOTS The family of robot animals from the German developer of robotics Festo is growing. The company presents many new robots, for example: a swarm of ants that can interact with each other, as well as butterflies and dragonflies, which are characterized by all the ease and grace of these insects. When they were created, the company focused not only on their appearance, but also on behavioral characteristics. The ants coordinate with each other all their actions and movements. Each ant, that is 13-centimeter long, has on its belly a radio module, through which precise coordination is carried out. As for butterflies-robots. The weight of each butterfly is only 32 grams, this includes two servos, a pair of small batteries, and a laser-made casing. After one charging that lasts fifteen minutes, butterflies will be able to flutter for about 4 minutes. And their flight looks very impressive. There’re not just butterflies, but a whole system that consists of ten high-speed infrared cameras installed in a room where butterflies fly. They track the infrared markers installed on the robots, transmitting data in real time to the central computer; so that’s how coordination of butterflies is going in the space. You can hardly distinguish these bionic butterflies from the real ones in the room where they fly. Robotic seagulls and dragonflies that can fly just like their living relatives. The seagull was developed in 2012. Later, a dragonfly, that can hang in the air no worse than its natural counterpart was invented. All the details of the dragonfly were made on a 3D printer, and you can control this miracle with a smartphone. Through these developments, the company could edge out the development market of flying drones, but it doesn’t need it. The technology of flying and hovering in the air is worked on these two prototypes. The kangaroo robot. At the core of the BionicKangaroo is the mechanism of "recuperation" - it uses the energy recovered from one jump to help it make another. Real kangaroos quickly got tired and could not jump for a long time without this mechanism. Springs that store mechanical energy on the landing and give it away on the next jump are used in this project. BionicKangaroo that weighs 7 kilograms and highs one meter can make a jump of 80 cm in length and 40 cm in height. The power supply system, that forces it to move, is a pneumatic accumulator. The robot is controlled by a special bandage that reads myoelectric signals from the human forearm. Robot shark. This unmanned underwater facility - a robotic shark length of about one and a half meters and weigh up to 45 kg. Like a real fish, the robot uses the tail to move and control its movement. The robot moves in a fish way, so it is very difficult to distinguish it or at least isolate it on the background of a real marine fauna. It can swim above and dive to depth. Such shark can rich an enemy ship unnoticed. She can spy, repair ships, and arrange sabotage. The robot-spider. From the beginning it is worth mentioning that the spider model was printed using the 3D printer. The engine is integrated with the servo motors of the paws, three in each: the resulting system provides simple control of flexible, plastic movements with convenient coordination from the control panel. He was shown in one of the series of MythBusters. Underwater robot-snake. The mechanical snake is designed to perform maintenance and repair of various mechanisms on the seabed, mainly on oil platforms. It is capable of replacing costly autonomous underwater vehicles, easily slipping into places where cumbersome robots can not reach.

Top 10 Coolest Mini Cars You Won't Believe Actually Exist

Tiny mini cars are awesome, and economical. They can also be quite fast. Some amazing new scientific car inventions and breakthroughs in mini car design has been made, so lets find out! Subscribe for more! ► https://goo.gl/pgcoq1 ◄ Stay updated ► https://goo.gl/JyGcTt https://goo.gl/5c8dzr ◄ For copyright queries or general inquiries please get in touch: [email protected] Credit: https://pastebin.com/2t6ss7CY Be Amazed at these tiniest mini cars in the world! Heinkel Kabine - After WWII, Germany wasn’t exactly awash with resources. They therefore had to get clever by making do with less. The solution? Use three wheels instead of four. Peel Trident - The Isle of Man is a tiny British island whose flag is made up of three joined legs – which probably explains our next microcar. Tata Airpod - Cars that run on compressed air have been around for a while – the French were the first to have them in the late 19th century. Lumeneo Smera - What do you get when you combine a car with a motorcycle? Something only the French would think of. Brütsch Mopetta - Going back to Germans, microcars, and three wheels, there’s the Brütsch Mopetta – named after its easy-to-pronounce designer, Egon Brütsch Fahrzeugbau, which explains why everyone just calls him “Brütsch.” Renault Twizy - Want an actual microcar that’s environmentally-friendly and currently available? Myers Motors NmG - Ever fantasized about riding around in a banana? Then look no further than Myers Motors NmG’s “Sparrow” – though fans prefer “NmG.” BMW Isetta - The “BMW” tells you it’s German, but the “Isetta” tells you it was Italian built. Impressive though that sounds, it has its limitations. Peel P50 - According to the 2010 Guinness World Records, this is officially the world’s smallest car. Pea Car - If driving a banana isn’t your thing, then how about peas?

Amazon Testing Drone Delivery System

Amazon Testing Drone Delivery System

Support My Channel By Shopping on Amazon! http://amzn.to/2atadUZ SUBSCRIBE https://goo.gl/OXghgH https://www.facebook.com/deejay.gabriel.7 Amazon's chief executive has revealed that the company is testing a new service involving delivery by mini-drones to get packages to customers in just 30 minutes. Jeff Bezos appeared on CBS television's 60 Minutes programme in the US where he played a video from their website showing tiny robotic devices, called 'octocopters', picking up items in small yellow buckets and whizzing them through the air. "I know this looks like science fiction. It's not," Mr Bezos said. "We can do half-hour delivery ... and we can carry objects, we think, up to five pounds which covers 86% of the items that we deliver." The mini-drones are powered by electric motors and could cover areas within a 10-mile radius of fulfillment centres, thus covering a significant portion of the population in urban areas in the US. The retail giant's ambitious project still requires additional safety testing and federal approval but Mr Bezos estimated that Amazon 'Prime Air', as it would be called, would be up and running in four to five years. They operate autonomously and drop the items at the target locations thanks to GPS coordinates transmitted to them. "It's very green, it's better than driving trucks around," said Mr Bezos. Amazon said the octocopters would be "ready to enter commercial operations as soon as the necessary regulations are in place," noting that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was actively working on rules for unmanned aerial vehicles. It projected a more optimistic timeline than Mr Bezos himself for the project to be activated, saying the FAA's rules could be in place as early as 2015 and that Amazon Prime Air would be ready at that time. Mr Bezos hinted that part of the motivation behind the mini-drones was to make sure Amazon remains on the cutting edge of the retail industry. "Companies have short life spans ... And Amazon will be disrupted one day," he said. "I would love for it to be after I'm dead." It is not known if there are plans for the service to be launched outside of the US.

BMW Smart Transport Robots

BMW Smart Transport Robots

BMW Smart Transport Robots. Autonomous driving also plays an increasingly important role in logistics. An initial fleet of ten self-driving Smart Transport Robots (STR) is transporting components through logistics at the Wackersdorf plant. What is unique is that the self-driving transport robot does not need floor-mounted induction loops for navigation, but moves freely through the logistics hall, powered sustainably by pre-used batteries from the BMW i3 and is able to transport containers weighing up to 500 kilograms. The STR measures the distance to wireless transmitters to calculate its exact position and route. Using sensors to identify and react to critical situations, it is able to share the route with humans and other vehicles. After five months of prototype operation, the project will be transferred to pre-series production, where the ten STRs will be used for the first time in everyday operations and perform transport assignments independently. In the next phase of development, a 3D camera system will enable even more precise navigation. The BMW Group has launched this project in conjunction with the Fraunhofer Institut IML in Dortmund. The BMW Group will increasingly rely on innovation, digitalisation and sustainability for logistics in the future. A fully-networked supply chain, autonomous transport robots and the use of existing vehicle information for the delivery process will make logistics even more flexible and efficient. Every day, a total of 30 million parts need delivering to the right place at the right time, so that around 9,000 new vehicles can be produced at the BMW Group’s 31 production locations worldwide. “Logistics is the heart of the BMW production system – and the use of innovative and digital technologies will become a key factor in our complex logistics processes,” according to Jürgen Maidl, head of Logistics for the BMW Group production network. He continued: “At the same time, sustainable, resource-efficient solutions are also important to us. We are already testing the technologies of the future in a whole series of pilot projects.” From augmented reality goggles to autonomous transport systems to electric-powered trucks, the BMW Group is testing a wide variety of different technologies and innovations. Marco Prüglmeier, project manager for innovation and industry 4.0 for BMW Group inbound logistics: “We have a clear vision of the future and are already exploring the technologies of tomorrow. We have identified potential for innovation in all phases of the logistics process, from inbound delivery of parts to our plants to outbound delivery of new vehicles to dealers all over the world.” The BMW Group supply chain consists of a globally distributed supplier network, with close cooperation with various logistics service providers. In the future, full data transparency throughout the supply chain will enable us to know where each item is and whether it will be delivered on time. This information allows us to respond immediately if there is any delay. If, for example, a truck is involved in an accident, the Connected Supply Chain automatically calculates alternative courses of action and initiates corresponding measures. At the same time, the status of process-critical parts can be monitored by sensors, using so-called “condition monitoring”. This enables early identification of damaged parts and whether a replacement delivery is needed, thereby reducing costly extra runs and alternative processes and allowing any errors in the process to be resolved.

Most Expensive MISTAKES Ever Made!

Check out the most expensive mistakes ever made! From losing winning lottery tickets to business deals gone terribly wrong, this top 10 list of epic fails resulted in a lot of money being lost! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "AMAZING Lost Treasures That Were NEVER Found!" video here: https://youtu.be/op9ZYFAh1uE Watch our "WORST Military Mistakes Ever!" video here: https://youtu.be/bDFVyeuZ2yA Watch our "SURPRISING And Interesting Facts About Money!" video here: https://youtu.be/ONpChSPqVc4 13. Star Wars Merchandising When George Lucas persuaded Fox to release his film Star Wars: A New Hope, the company was not entirely on board. In fact, they were convinced that the film would flop. It’s a miracle the movie was made in the first place! In order to save a little money, the studio came up with what they thought was a clever solution. They persuaded Lucas to pass on an additional $500,000 in directing fees. In exchange, Lucas kept all of the licensing and merchandising rights for himself. The movie, however, turned out to be a major, culture-shifting hit. In 1978, more than 40 million "Star Wars" figures flew off the shelves, reaching a gross sale of more than $100 million. The notoriety and love for the movie only grew with time. It didn’t even matter if a new movie was coming out, the toys continued to sell. For example, in 2011, a year where there was no new "Star Wars" movie, "Star Wars" toys brought in more than $3 billion. No so good for Fox, but George Lucas became a billionaire! 12. Mars Climate Orbiter In the late 1990s, NASA developed the Mars Climate Orbiter to study the climate on Mars (like its name suggests). The purpose of the orbiter was simple and no one really expected anything to go wrong. It’s also the general assumption that NASA checks and double-checks everything. Well, with the orbiter, something small but critical slipped through the cracks. On Sept. 23, 1999, the Mars Climate Orbiter crashed into the red planet. Why? Because of math. Specifically, because of a conversion error in the math. One engineering team in charge of the orbiter used metric units. Since most of planet Earth uses metric, that probably didn’t appear to be a problem, except that the United States is one of a handful of countries still on the Imperial System. A second team of engineers used feet and inches and the math was not properly converted. This caused the navigation in the orbiter to go a little awry. After nearly 10 months in space, the Mars Climate Orbiter came too close to the planet’s surface on the day it was supposed to enter Mars’ orbit. In a written statement, NASA said, “People sometimes make errors.” This error cost $125 million and countless hours of work. 11. The Millennium Bridge The Millenium Bridge in London opened in June, 2000. The designers called it a “pure expression of engineering structure” and were extremely proud of their cool, sleek bridge that cost 18.2 million pounds. It was the first bridge to be built over the Thames in more than 100 years and around 80,000 people crossed it on its opening day. Unfortunately, it had to be closed right away. Why? Because it wobbled. As more and more people started walking on the bridge, it started to sway. To keep their balance, people started planting their feet wide and walking in near perfect unison. Engineers used “lateral suspension” in building the bridge. This innovation allows bridges to be built without tall supporting columns. When a large number of people walked on the bridge, it caused a phenomenon known as “Synchronous Lateral Excitation”. Essentially, it swayed and twisted in regular intervals. As people started to walk in unison to adapt to the movement of the bridge, it just made it worse! The engineers blamed the “synchronized footfall” for the failure of the bridge. It was closed and engineers installed dampers and springs to absorb the shock of all the pedestrian feet. The repair cost another five million pounds. Today, the Millennium Bridge still carries the nickname of the Wobbly Bridge, even though it doesn’t wobble any more. 10. Destruction of 150-year-old guitar Quentin Tarantino’s Western The Hateful Eight is famous for several reasons but I think one of the most important scenes is when Kurt Russell’s character breaks a guitar. There was nothing particularly special about the acting of that moment, it was all about the musical instrument. In the movie, Jennifer Leigh’s character strums a guitar and everyone told her to be super careful with it. It turns out the guitar used in that shot was a 150-year-old rare guitar rented from the Martin Guitar Museum in Pennsylvania. Russell’s character is like, give me that guitar! And he snatches it from her hands and smashes it on a post. Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Robots sorting system helps Chinese company finish at least 200,000 packages a day in the warehouse

Chinese delivery firm is moving to embrace automation. Orange robots at the company's sorting stations are able to identify the destination of a package through a code-scan, virtually eliminating sorting mistakes. Shentong's army of robots can sort up to 200,000 packages a day, and are self-charging, meaning they are operational 24/7. The company estimates its robotic sorting system is saving around 70-percent of the costs a human-based sorting line would require.
