And Why it’ll be Difficult to Stop

On April 20, Apple unveiled some of their next generation of products, pretty much all of which were powered by their M1 chip. This includes the next-gen iMac, along with the iPad Pro. When you factor in the previously released M1 MacBook Air and Pro, and the M1 Mac mini, this now totals to 5 different devices you can get the M1 chip with.

And perhaps the best part for Apple is that this number could probably double within the next few years.

But Why’s the M1 Chip Such a Big Deal?


A $20,000 Truck Makes a Pretty Compelling Argument

On Tuesday, Ford pulled the covers off of their new Maverick pickup truck. It’s now the smallest truck they make, measuring only 200" in length and weighing “just” 3700 pounds. To put that into perspective, that’s more than 40 inches shorter and around 1300 pounds lighter than a comparable F-150.

While sheer mass may not be the Maverick’s strong suit, it has two things that no other truck on the planet can currently achieve. Firstly, a starting price of just $20,000 and, secondly, managing up to 40 mpg in the city!

Why This Truck Proves Gasoline Cars’ Relevancy


With Promising Future Models and a Commitment to Reducing Gasoline Vehicle Production, Hyundai Could Become a True EV Threat

It would be an understatement to say that Hyundai has been completely reinventing themselves, as of late. This reinvention has consisted of the introduction of countless new models, refreshes, along with heavy investments into EV and Hydrogen Fuel-Cell development.

Amongst its sea of models, Hyundai currently sells two electric vehicles, with one more just around the corner and plenty to come in the near future. While just two electric offerings might not sound too impressive, it’s the future of Hyundai’s EV lineup that has many, including myself, extremely excited.

How They Do it and You Can Too

Robocalls. There’s practically nothing good about them. They’re annoying, frequent, and normally end up leaving a bad taste in your mouth.

And while a vast majority of the population chooses to be annoyed by them, a small number of people have learned to embrace these irritating calls. Why? Because every time they pick up the phone and manage to get enough information out of the robocaller, they essentially get a good amount of cash delivered straight into their bank account.

Here’s how:

These Calls are Actually Illegal


Tesla is No Longer Alone in Any Market

On May 19, Ford pulled back the curtain on the electrified version of their most iconic truck, the F-150. Appropriately named the F-150 Lightning, this truck boasts a range figure of up to 300 miles, 0–60 in less than 4.5 seconds, up to 10,000 lbs of payload capacity, and a starting price of just a hair under $40,000.

And perhaps the worst statistic for Tesla? It’s set to get into consumers’ hands for the 2022 model year.

Google Versus the Competition

This is the third and final part of the How Google Works series. In the previous parts, we went over how Google and their products have grown and evolved over the years, along with how they earn their money and how both Google’s data centers and employees work together to provide a seamless experience.

The last part of this series will go over how Google stacks up against the competition, and how one of the largest tech companies in the world manages to stay competitive.

So What Happened?

In the early 1900s, electric cars were quite a common sight. They were quiet, much more refined than the early gasoline motors, you didn’t have to manually crank the car to get it started, and you didn’t have to smell any exhaust. It seemed like electricity would be the future of automotive technology, and that there was practically no reason to buy a traditional gasoline vehicle.

That is, until the electric car lost its edge.

As the years went by, many factors, such as electric starters, cheaper oil, and the fact that battery technology had pretty much plateaued during this…


Monetization and What Goes on Behind the Scenes

This is the continuation of the “How Google Works” series and it will cover more factors that contribute to how Google works. While the first part focused on Google’s growth as a company, this 2nd part will focus on Google’s monetization, and all the different areas they get money from, along with everything that actually allows it to function on a daily basis, such as the data centers and employees.

The Evolution of the Search Engine and Their Other Services

This is the beginning of a 3-Part series breaking down how the largest search engine on the planet functions on a daily basis. In this series, we’ll go over how Google has evolved since its introduction in 1998, Google’s other services, how they earn their money, and finally all the things that go on behind the scenes to give people a smooth experience.

In this part, we’ll look at how Google has changed over the years and everything it’s resulted in today.

Nevertheless, It’s a Double-Edged Sword

Technology is both a blessing and a curse. On paper, technology provides us with plenty of conveniences and gives us the ability to do things that weren’t before possible.

In reality, however, it has come at a cost.

This cost is that technology has become amazingly addictive, serving as a distraction in most people’s lives. In other words, technology has made us lazy and unproductive due to its added conveniences, keeping us from unlocking our full potential.
