APPLE WARNS THAT EACH PRORAW FILE IS APPROXIMATELY 25MB IN SIZE. THIS FORMAT STORES MORE INFORMATION AND DYNAMIC RANGE, GIVING YOU ADDITIONAL FLEXIBILITY WHEN EDITING EXPOSURE AND WHITE BALANCE. ACCORDING TO APPLE, PRORAW ALLOWS YOU TO COMBINE APPLE COMPUTER PHOTOGRAPHY FEATURES LIKE DEEP FUSION AND SMART HDR WITH THE TRADITIONAL BENEFITS OF RAW SHOOTING.

PRORAW WORKS ON ALL FOUR IPHONE 12 PRO AND 12 PRO MAX CAMERAS. IT USES ADOBE DIGITAL NEGATIVE FILE FORMAT AND CONTAINS INFORMATION FOR 12-BIT COLOR AND SUPPORT FOR 14 STOPS OF DYNAMIC RANGE.

5G MAY MEAN YOU'LL NEVER NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR AGAIN

THE TECHNOLOGY CAN HELP DOCTORS PREVENT NEUROLOGICAL DAMAGE, SAVE LIMBS AND DETECT STROKES. IT MAY ALSO ALLOW HEALTH CARE TO BECOME MORE PERSONALIZED AND EFFICIENT. WITH 5G, TECHNIQUES LIKE X-RAY VISION AND ROBOTIC, REMOTE SURGERIES, ETC., CAN BECOME A REALITY.

FOR EXAMPLE, USING 5G, A PHYSICIAN CAN EASILY AND QUICKLY SEND IMAGES FROM BIOPSIES - AT AN AVERAGE SPEED OF 1 GIGABYTE PER SECOND. THIS ALLOWS COLLEAGUES IN DIFFERENT BUILDINGS OF THE HOSPITAL COMPLEX TO QUICKLY VIEW TEST RESULTS AND MAKE A DIAGNOSIS IN THE SHORTEST POSSIBLE TIME. PREVIOUSLY, THE PROCESS TOOK LONGER AS DOCTORS HAD TO MOVE BETWEEN BUILDINGS TO OBTAIN TEST RESULTS.

WHEN YOU CAN'T MAKE IT TO A MEDICAL FACILITY OR WANT TO AVOID THE CROWDS IN AN EMERGENCY ROOM, 5G COULD BECOME THE KEY TO GETTING TREATMENT. AR AND VR COULD ALSO BE USED TO TRAIN MEDICAL STUDENTS. SUCH A THING IS POSSIBLE WITH OLDER TECHNOLOGY, MICROSOFT'S PRICEY, BUT 5G MAKES THEM MUCH MORE RESPONSIVE AND REALISTIC.

GOOGLE WANTS ITS VIRTUAL ASSISTANT IN EVERY ROOM OF YOUR HOUSE

IN GOOGLE'S MODEL HOME, MOST APPLIANCES ARE EITHER INTERNET-CONNECTED OR PLUGGED INTO A SMART PLUG THAT LETS YOU TURN THEM ON WITH A VOICE COMMAND. COMMUNICATION IS CONSTANT AND EVERYWHERE — BETWEEN ROOMS AND FAMILY MEMBERS WHO AREN'T IN THE HOUSE.

DO NOT BE MISTAKEN ABOUT GOOGLE'S VOICE ASSISTANT USAGE (THAT IT IS AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY IN SMARTPHONES RUNNING ANDROID), BECAUSE ONCE YOU ENTER THE APP STORE ON YOUR IPHONE, YOU CAN ALSO USE IT. ARE YOU READY TO GIVE UP SIRI AND TRUST GOOGLE ASSISTANT ENTIRELY? HMM ... THERE IS SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT. BUT, OF COURSE, WE WILL BE ABLE TO USE THE ASSISTANT NOT ONLY IN SMARTPHONES, BUT ALSO IN OUR TABLETS, WHICH IS NO LESS CONVENIENT.

THE FUTURE GOOGLE IS SELLING CAN SEEM UNNECESSARY AND SOMETIMES PRICEY, BUT IT COULD BE INCREDIBLY CONVENIENT FOR A BUSY FAMILY. UNLESS THE POWER GOES OUT. THEN THEY'D JUST HAVE TO SWEEP AND PARENT ON THEIR OWN.

POST PANDEMIC LIFE: VIRTUAL EVENTS COULD BE HERE TO STAY

THE JOYS OF ATTENDING CONFERENCES PRE-COVID WERE SPONTANEOUS MEETINGS, CORRIDOR CHATS, AND PARTIES WITH LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE. THIS WAS ALL BUT GONE AFTER THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC CAUSED EVENTS TO BE CALLED OFF AND GATHERINGS LIMITED TO ONLY A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE.

ACCORDING TO DW, THE BENEFITS OF IN-PERSON EVENTS SHINE THROUGH IN TERMS OF HUMAN INTERACTION, WHICH HAS BEEN SORELY MISSED DURING LOCKDOWN. HOWEVER, ONLINE CONFERENCES BRING MORE PEOPLE TOGETHER, WITHOUT THE LIMITS OF SPACE, ALL WITHOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE OF FLYING THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO ONE PLACE.
