When I started university at the age of 17, I chose to do IT because my university of choice didn’t offer economics. In my first semester, I was introduced to programming, that was far from my expectation, I thought only CS students did heavy programming, but boy how was I wrong. In my second semester, we started learning C++, I decided I would master C++, but that was no easy task. Sometimes as humans we are obliged to stay in a place where there is no pressure, anxiety, or stress, but sometimes it is these complications that help us grow…

For the last five years, every MacBook Pro looks the same. They all come with a digital touch bar, thunderbolt ports, and no HDMI or SD card slots. The most presumably annoying part is the thicker horizontal and vertical borders of the screen. It has been a course of concern for most people but not all.

Be it your physical health or your mental health. We are all fighting the same battles. In this article, we will be discussing two problems we face in our daily healthcare and how to solve it as developers or programmers. As the saying goes, a problem half stated is a problem half solved.

Long periods of sitting.

Reading is never easy, and it becomes very tiresome when there are no pictures in a blog post. Readers like to see images in the articles they read. Images are a huge deal when it comes to writing a post as a writer.

Though I started writing on Medium a month ago, I have seen my fair share of what images can do. I am not all that experienced as many writers on Medium, but I have had over to 10k views with eleven stories. From how I see it, images play a significant role when it comes to blogging.

We were all surprised and thrilled by the performance of the M1 Soc when it came. The M1 shattered records for the best single-core Mac out there. It is one of the best multi-core notebook laptops in the market. Many iPad fans wondered, would Apple include the Apple-made silicon inside the upcoming iPad Pros due to its staggering performance? Well, let’s find out.

We didn’t know until the release of the iOS 14.5 beta. According to 9To5Mac, the iOS 14.5 beta code made references to a chip called 13G. But searching through the list of current iOS devices, no device…

Apple silicon is changing our perspective on how ARM CPU's perform, until last year I didn’t even know ARM can outperform an x86 chips so well.

The M1 chips Apple used in its 13-inch laptops was one of the greatest innovations the Cupertino company has made. …

After a seven-month journey, Perseverance started its high speed descend towards the red planet on February 18th, 2021. Onboard the Perseverance was a little helicopter called Ingenuity. It will be the first unmanned helicopter on another planet. Its sole purpose is to do a series of flight tests on Mars.

The helicopter weighs 1.8kilograms but the atmosphere of Mars is about a hundredth the density of the earth’s atmosphere at ground level, and its gravity has only a third of our earth’s gravity. Ingenuity must overcome all these challenges not to mention the power and communication limitations.
