Info Influx: Get the Most Accurate Information through BeepBeep Nation

The Internet provides many answers to any one question that we have, guaranteed 24/7. Sometimes, however, it happens to provide too many. Sifting through all 14 pages of a Google search for a simple keyword can sometimes feel like too much effort, especially if you’re in a hurry and need the most accurate information as soon as possible. Though of course it’s helpful to have extensive research, there are instances when we simply do not have the energy and time for it.

Our brains need shortcuts. In psychology, these mental shortcuts are called heuristics. Heuristics help us make sense of the world in an efficient way, so we can take a practical course of action. Everywhere we look, there is a piece of information to be taken in, but our brains can only process so much. If we analyze every single thing, then we would never make a decision or deal with a particular situation. And everyday of our lives, we need to make hundreds or thousands of little decisions. This is why our mental shortcuts can help us make quick yet good choices.

Since we now have access to the Internet and the influx of data within it, how do we begin to streamline our decision-making? One app that can provide us with digital shortcuts is BeepBeep Nation. By connecting people who need help and others who can provide that help, it offers cheap and easy solutions to its users daily problems, including how to get the most accurate information efficiently. A requestor just needs to send out a beep asking a certain question, and he can get the freshest answers from several helpers in a few minutes.

The whole process takes a total of three convenient steps. First, you have to specify a location for your question. It might be where you are at the moment or somewhere else that’s relevant to the information you’re asking for, like a place you’re soon visiting and need some details about. Second, you have to type your question. It should help to be as concise and precise as possible. And lastly, tap the Beep button. Afterwards, waiting for helpers to respond shouldn’t take that long.

How do we know that we’re getting accurate information? Say perhaps you beep this question: “Which is the best dessert place in New York?” The helpers that will give their answers are real people located in New York. The information isn’t previously stored in some review site or search engine, so the answers you will get are real-time.

This feature is most useful when you beep a question that might have variable answers, depending on the time of day. For instance, you beep this: “Is the Tim Hortons at Robson Street open now?” Whether today’s a Monday or a Saturday, and whether it’s currently 7.a.m. or 11 p.m., will all affect what the correct response is. Since review sites or search engines give you data previously processed and stored by computers, the real-time answers you get might differ. On-the-spot responses provided by BeepBeep Nation may be a tad more helpful, as they come from people who are actually in the area and who can physically check if that Tim Hortons branch is indeed open on your behalf.

BeepBeep Nation also has ways to assist you in figuring out which helpers can provide the most accurate information. Users of the app have a green bar below their profile photo called Beep Rank, and it tells how much help they have previously given in the past, as well as how good the help was. A tip for getting the most accurate information from BeepBeep Nation: once you have enough responses, count them. The more people recommend the same place, the higher the chance it is what you’re looking for. Tallying can help you check the reliability of the information.

So nowadays, whether you’re looking for a chill and cozy place to take your date out or wondering if your favorite kind of cheese is currently available at Whole Foods, you no longer have to spend a ridiculous amount of time poring over your search results.

BeepBeep Nation has made the acquiring of the most accurate information as efficient as possible. The BeepBeep Nation app is set to launch soon in selected cities worldwide. Created for BeepBeep Nation users, the EMINENT (EMN) token fuels the app. Pre-sale of the ICO is currently live, plus cool bonuses. Check it out now!

Google Breaks Record As Biggest Clean Energy Buyer

While countries like Australia rely almost entirely on renewable energy, rural communities still bank on eco-boxes. Nonetheless, things may be taking a positive turn sooner rather than later. After acquiring 536 megawatts of wind power, Google is now the largest corporate purchaser of renewables.

Google’s “electricity consumption is considerable, but for them to meet that already by buying renewable energy is a huge achievement,” [said] Kyle Harrison, a New York-based analyst at BNEF.

Considering its following, Google hopes to inspire other agencies to go green. Already, tech giants like Apple are shadowing the feat in an attempt to go 100% renewable. Overall, Google has procured 3,186 megawatts of power.

“Google is buying renewable energy across three continents, and has paved the way for dozens of other companies,” Harrison said.

Many others jumping on the bandwagon likely won’t surpass Google as number one consumer, but hey. It’s a trend that’s hopefully here to stay.

Alphabet Testing Burrito Deliveries By Drone

Now that drones have proven themselves vital in the technological universe, gadget firms are pushing its limits even further. From delivering blood transfusions to restoring forests, drones are now making more conventional deliveries. Thanks to Alphabet, Australians will be receiving spontaneous burrito bags by — you guessed it — drone.

Project Wing has teamed up with Mexican food chain Guzman y Gomez, along with pharmacy chain Chemist Warehouse to allow customers to order items through a dedicated app. The drones are then sent off to collect goods from the stores’ loading sites and dropping off to the testers at their homes, traveling at up to 120 km/h.

Part of Project Wing, the drones are giving Alphabet the breakthrough they’ve been after. The company is targeting the Australian Capital Territory, which is a 40-minute round trip to the nearest store. Gauging from the success of rural deliveries, Alphabet is challenging the precision of its drones.

Project Wing is training its drones to deliver items anywhere, using its sensors to identify new obstacles and each time that it does so, improving the onboard algorithms and its capacity to pick out a safe spot for delivery.

While accuracy is a must for any drone-related activity, I wouldn’t mind a splattered burrito. Anyway, it’s all about taste.

Alphabet Shipping Internet To Puerto Rico By Balloon

In devastated Puerto Rico, faulty cellphone service is a pressing issue. While Tesla is working to revive the territory’s power grid, loved ones are having trouble reaching others abroad. But the country in crisis is getting the help it needs, thanks to Google’s parent company. Alphabet is bringing Internet back to Puerto Rico by balloon.

Project Loon was born in Alphabet’s moonshot X division, with the aim of serving the half of the world’s population that is still without internet access. It has launched several successful pilot projects, but has yet to be deployed commercially on a wide scale.

30 balloons will be hovering over Puerto Rico for up to 6 months. A single balloon can power up to 5,000 square kilometers of coverage. Project Loon, which is currently active in Peru, will be useful in easing communications between groups.

“Some people, even though we’ve documented the fact… that we’ve delivered food and water, it hasn’t gotten to some of them. Now, it could be for a whole host of reasons. One of them could be that they couldn’t hear it; the information didn’t get to them.” [said governor Ricardo Rosselló.]

As compared to the existing setup in Peru, Loon will experience some turbulence in Puerto Rico. It currently lacks a wireless network — but with Alphabet’s previous successes, shouldn’t be too big of an issue.

Pixel Buds Can Translate Conversations

When Translate One2One launched back in June, it was the latest translation technology of its kind. Not to be undermined, Google recently launched a translation device of its own, in the form of Pixel Buds.

The translation software allows users to both listen to and speak in foreign languages using their smartphone. For listening services, holding down the earbud will translate another language into the user’s chosen language.

The gadget supports 40 languages and hosts a slew of additional features. As Google does, the Buds will retail for £159 (approximately $210) — or perhaps you’d prefer to sell an organ.

“With Pixel Buds, we’re excited to put all the power of the Google Assistant into a pair of headphones you can take with you everywhere,” said Google product manager Adam Champy, “so you can easily control your tunes, get walking directions to the nearest coffee spot or have a conversation with someone from another country without ever pulling out your phone.”

Alongside the release of Pixel Buds is the Pixel 2, which is a state-of-the-art smartphone. If you also choose to invest in the Google Lens smart camera, you may be the proud new owner of a pocket-sized cyborg.
