Like many platforms, such as YouTube and (Lord, forgive me for mentioning this website) TikTok, Medium is only getting more flooded with aspiring writers by the day. Currently, Medium has over 175,000 writers and upwards of 85 million monthly viewers. Both of these numbers are guaranteed to keep growing, which simply translates into more and more competition.
With more Medium being more “saturated” than ever before, that sort of begs the question, is it still worth it? Let’s find out:
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.
Ever since Tesla unveiled the Model S back in 2009, automakers have been scrambling towards electrification by whatever means possible. This has brought out dozens of traditional hybrids, plenty of completely electric cars, and plug-in hybrids (or PHEVs).
Utilizing both an electric powertrain, which can usually provide 30 or more miles of electric driving, and a gasoline motor for longer trips, PHEVs are one of the most interesting electrified powertrains yet.
I say the most interesting because, as we see more and more auto manufacturers shift to this method of hybridization, it’s not hard to see how versatile these powertrains…
Algorithms are all around us. They’re in everything from social media apps and search engines like Google, to even the stock market. To put it simply, pretty much every piece of independently working machinery or technology contains an algorithm. Algorithms can even be found in our daily actions.
But what exactly is an algorithm?
To put it simply, an algorithm is a set of instructions put together to solve a problem, which are normally run through a computer. We too, however, have numerous algorithms to help us achieve certain tasks. In fact, it can even be argued that the human…
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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…
