Verizon has just announced a couple of changes to its network, including a new 500MB plan for $ 30, the addition of 3G mobile hotspot to Prepaid Unlimited, and Travel Passes for prepaid users that’ll make visiting Mexico and Canada a little bit easier. This news comes after last month’s addition of 500MB of LTE per day to Go Unlimited customers in the same two countries.
A man who claims to be a time traveler from the year 2030 has apparently passed a lie detector test when giving a handful of predictions about the future.
The man, known only as “Noah,” insists that he must remain anonymous and that his face must be blurred. Noah also claims that he is 50-years-old, but has taken an “age rejuvenating drug” to make himself appear 25.
Noah has previously given some predictions about the future in an interview with YouTube channel Paranormal Elite. But this time around, another YouTube channel, Apex TV, has subjected Noah to a lie detector test while he gave many of the same predictions.
Among them are forecasts about Trump being re-elected president, humans reaching Mars in 2028, and the introduction of robots that can independently operate a home. Noah added that artificial intelligence will be “huge,” phones will only get bigger, and that a Google Glass-like device will “take over” within the next decade.
Interestingly, Noah also said that time travel has already been invented but is being kept secret — and will only be made public in the year 2028. Also, someone named Ilana Remikee is apparently going to be president in 2030.
Noah claims to have hard evidence proving all of these predictions, but can’t give us it because of “paradoxes.”
Is It Fake?
The general scientific consensus is that time travel into the past isn’t possible. But suspending disbelief, there are other issues with these predictions.
Polygraph (or “lie detector”) tests are notoriously easy to beat, and their value as instruments capable of catching untruths is becomingincreasinglyweaker. According to the American Psychological Association, “most psychologists agree that there is little evidence that polygraphs can accurately detect lies.”
It’s also a bit suspicious that “Ilana Remikee” doesn’t show up in any Google queries or vital record searches. To be president in 2030, one would have to have been born in the U.S. (natural-born-citizen clause) in 1993 in order to be 35 (the minimum age) in 2028 (the closest election year to 2030). That person would be 24- or 25-years-old currently.
Super Mario Run arrived on the Play Store nearly a year ago, after a brief exclusivity period on iOS. It quickly became a hit, and gained a spot on our best Android games of 2017 list. Now it has passed 100 million installs on the Play Store.
The game has been updated a few times since release, and the full unlock price has dropped to $ 4.99 at least once.
Google has published its monthly analysis of Android market share today, and we have some big news. For the first time in history, the most used version of the OS is now Nougat – which launched in August of 2016, almost 18 months ago. It takes the crown from Marshmallow, in fact its predecessor. Nougat is now at 28.5% of the pie (up from 26.4%), while Marshmallow dropped to 28.1% (from 28.6% last month). Lollipop completes the podium, still commanding 24.6% of the market at this time. While all the older versions of the OS lost market share, Oreo is still gaining. At the same…
A new month means new Android platform distribution numbers, and this month’s stats show that a milestone has been reached.
Google today posted its latest Android distribution figures, showing which versions of Android accessed the Play Store during the 7-day period ending February 5. Android Oreo (8.0 and 8.1) combined for 1.1 percent, the first time that we’ve seen Oreo break 1 percent usage.
Usage of Android Nougat (7.0 and 7.1) grew this month compared to last month, finishing at 28.5 percent in February. Android Marshmallow (6.0) wasn’t so lucky, slipping half a percent to finish at 28.1 percent usage.
Android Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1) usage fell this month, too, ending up with 24.6 percent. Android KitKat (4.4) usage also fell, finishing at 12.0 percent.
Rounding out this month’s Android distribution numbers is Android Jelly Bean (4.1-4.3) dropping to 5.0 percent usage, Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) slipping to 0.4 percent, and Android Gingerbread (2.3) dropping to 0.3 percent.
