This will allow the forest officials to drive back the animal once again to the forest without causing any harm to the villagers. Samir Sinha, field director of the Corbett Tiger Reserve also found this technology of great use and said that it will make a huge difference.

Pradeep Vyas, director of the Sundarban Biosphere Reserve also consider the drone technology quite useful as it will help in generating huge information, which is not possible by humans.

It will supposedly enhance the battery life for all wifi devices. The report has been published in Popular Science.battery charging apps

More Details

The report also reveals that the chip works by reflecting a signal constantly sent out via a personalised router. Therefore, in absence of an own signal, the chip could help devices last much longer than what we see now. Tang has gone on air saying, “Because you are only imprinting on a wi-fi signal, you are not generating it and do not need power.”

Touching New Speeds

The main issue that had been holding back such a chip mechanism was isolation of a fixed signal that was being reflected back since the original signal also underwent constant reflection. As for the speeds on wifi using this chip, the makers claim to have touched

Buzz is strong that this will be touted as a competitor to Surface Pro 3 from Microsoft.

Expected release date: 2015’s third quarter

Best rumor heard: The beefier iPad will be a collaboration product of IBM and the Cupertino giant.

 Apple TV: Apple might design and launch an internet based TV sometime this year. In fact, the makers are creating it to aid live as well as custom-based demand program streaming. Rumor mills point out that Apple’s TV will support video games and have an App store too.

Expected release date: End of 2015

Best rumor heard: Seems like Apple has got its design drafts ready but is currently finding it tough to get hands on the right content/cable partners.

iPhone 6c: If Apple’s tradition is some benchmark, then we will see a new iPhone in the coming months. However, it’s unlikely that the iPhone 7 will see the light of the day this year. However, rumors have it that they are working on a 4-inch iPhone 6 that would be released before the year ends. Note here that the iPhone 7 would come with inbuilt Beats Music App and see some suite improvement.

Expected release date: Last quarter of 2015.
