Pixel 6: Google cuts prices to break into the smartphone market

Posted on Oct. 19, 2021, 7:30 p.m.Updated Oct 19, 2021, 10:07 PM

For the moment, Google is still struggling to establish itself in the smartphone market. The Californian firm remains far behind its competitors Samsung and Apple, which dominate the market for high-end laptops, while Chinese companies (Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo) are taking over for cheaper mobiles. The software giant hopes to change the situation with its Pixel 6 smartphone, presented this Tuesday.

For the first time, Google presents two models, the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. This strategy is directly inspired by that of Apple, which has been declining its iPhone Pro version for two years. The Pixel 6 will cost at least 649 euros in Europe and the premium version 899 euros. Prices significantly lower than the latest models of its two big rivals.

A “very aggressive” price

“This is a very aggressive starting price for the Pixel 6,” said Google’s hardware director, Rick Osterloh, on the Mountain View campus. “We recognize that we are not in a dominant position. The premium smartphone market is dominated by two players and we need to gain the trust of consumers to sell our products to them. “

As the pressure against planned device obsolescence increases, the California giant promises that the new Pixel 6 will benefit from software updates for five years. This is more than its competitors in the Android universe, Samsung, Oppo and Xiaomi, who commit to updating their software for four years. “We would be happy if users keep them for longer,” comments Rick Osterloh. “It lowers the total cost for our customers and it’s better from an ecological point of view. “

For Dan Ives, analyst at Wedbush, this strategy could prove to be a winner for the group. Cutting the prices of its smartphones is “the right choice at a key moment for Google” which is still struggling to assert itself as a manufacturer of electronic equipment, believes the expert. “Its market share should increase, even if it faces a very competitive environment. “

House chip

Much like its rival Apple, Google decided to develop an internal chip, which gives it more control over the end product. Both smartphones contain a Google Tensor chip. Originally, this chip was developed to accelerate artificial intelligence systems, before being adapted for smartphones. It should make devices up to 80% faster, according to the California firm.

“We have spent several years developing Google Tensor and its technology is fundamentally based around artificial intelligence,” says Rick Osterloh. “Tensor was built to bring this cutting edge technology directly to our users. “

“Machine learning”

Among the new features of the Pixel 6 is the ability to erase, in the background of photos, people or elements of scenery such as electric wires. The smartphone also allows you to dictate text messages that are written as you go, or to translate text appearing on panels, for example, using the camera. So many examples of the use of machine learning in everyday life.

Combined with another chip, dubbed “Titan M2”, the Tensor processor also aims to better protect the privacy of Pixel users. “When we designed the Tensor chip and the whole product, safety was a central concern,” says Rick Osterloh.

The director of hardware also spoke of the difficulties Google faces in sourcing semiconductors. This shortage has affected the production of laptops in the Chrome OS universe, as “it has affected everyone,” he says. The shortage could last a year, or less, in case “some economies start to slow down.”

In September, it was reported that Xiaomi is trying to accelerate the acquisition process of the German automaker Borgward’s factory in Beijing. Xiaomi can adopt a dual-factory production model when entering the auto industry. Meaning, on the one hand, the company can acquire real production capabilities through the acquisition of other automakers and immediately go into operation. After that, Xiaomi can build its own factories to ensure enough demand.

Borgward’s factory acquisition allows the smartphone brand to afford a quick entry into the automotive market. The annual output of the Borgward factory in Beijing is 180,000 vehicles.

If you are offering mobile at the service center, get the original bill. Often service centers also charge money to replace parts from software updates. So find out what the problem is with the mobile and take the original bill to replace the parts.

Often when you go to the service center you can’t fully tell what the problem is with the phone. In that case, you can make a list of them and go to the service center and tell them about it properly.

“Squid Game”, a $ 900 million jackpot for Netflix

Posted on Oct. 18, 2021, 12:30 p.m.Updated Oct 18, 2021, 4:20 PM

“Squid Game” is only in its first season, but the South Korean series is already undeniably the new goose that lays golden eggs. Netflix.

This dystopian soap opera where characters in debt clash in fatal trials to try to win a fortune already represents $ 891.1 million in economic “impact value” estimated by Netflix. Not bad, when it costs $ 21.4 million, or about $ 2.4 million per episode, Bloomberg reported on Monday, referring to an internal document.

Unlike traditional TV channels or movie studios, a subscription video-on-demand (SVoD) service like Netflix derives its revenue from its entire catalog and not from a single production. But indicators exist, even if they are not shared with the producers. This precious “impact value” that Netflix uses internally to gauge the performance of its programs is one of them. In a letter sent to Bloomberg, a lawyer defending the interests of the Los Gatos firm warned against the release of this type of confidential data.

132 million spectators

This series, released in mid-September, is already the biggest hit in terms of viewing on the platform. Netflix estimates that 132 million people watched at least two minutes of “Squid Game” in the first twenty-three days of its broadcast, confirming that this series is making the best start in the history of the platform ahead of “La Chronicle of the Bridgertons ”.

According to Netflix estimates, 89% of people who started watching “Squid Game” watched more than one episode, 66% of viewers – or 87 million people – watched the series in its entirety, Bloomberg reports. In total, the public spent 1.4 billion hours watching this program! Viewing figures that sound like a validation of Netflix’s strategy to strengthen its audiences by becoming the first American studio to massively export non-American programs.

Enough to potentially breathe new life into the momentum of the world leader in video streaming, which in the first half of the year recorded the smallest increase in the number of its subscribers since 2013. Netflix, which has a valuation of $ 278 billion and is listed on the Nasdaq at New York will present its financial results for the third quarter on Tuesday.

Wonders of the Stone City on the Xinjiang Plateau

Shenshi Stone City is formed from the process of weathering, consisting of countless giant granite blocks that have been carved by nature into the shape of animals and people.

Shenshi Stone City in Xinjiang. Video: CGTN

Shenshi Stone City (meaning Sacred Stone) is located in Cat Moc Nai County, Xinjiang Autonomous Region, on the northern slopes of Mount Saur, at an altitude of 1,400 – 2,000 m, covering an area of ​​more than 400 square kilometers. Mount Saur is the eastern wing of the Tarbagatai range on the border between China and Kazakhstan. The granite rocks here are shaped like sheep, pangolins, turtles, elephants or even humans. Due to the difference in height, the granite rocks in Shenshi seem to be scattered randomly as if thrown from above.

Although circular granite beaches are quite common in eastern China, especially in the southern coastal region, they are very different from those in Xinjiang. The eastern rock fields are the result of weathering in hot, humid subtropical conditions. For this reason, the surface of granite is not easily transformed into soft sand, but often has a very thin layer of red clay.

However, the rocks at Shenshi are the product of weathering that takes place during cold weather in temperate regions, in which external forces include wind, snow, freezing and melting water. This process causes the granite to be smoothed while still having a solid texture. The rock surface is rarely covered with soil or vegetation.

Shenshi Stone City also has a large number of granite caves, formed from the collapse of cracks in the rock. The caves have many large niches and natural stalactites.
