  • Computers, tablets, video game systems, stereo equipment and televisions are all high worth investments which you want to save from damage when you are shifting home or office.
  • Hire a professional company and be organized about the cords and remotes, suggest experts.

How to Pack electronic Device while Shifting?

Here are some easy tips to pack any electronic device-

Rahul Pillai, CEO, Interim Relocations, suggests:

* Save the original boxes and packing materials for repacking.

* Essential packing materials: Electronics are usually very fragile and sensitive, so make sure you use enough bubble wrap, cushioning material and packing paper. Avoid using newspaper for packing, because the electronic device will not be safe under this protection.

* Check the temperature in storage. Sensitive electronics such as computers and televisions may need to be stored in climate-controlled units. Seek advice from the manufacturer or your storage facility.

* Mark the cartons: Clearly mark ‘fragile’ on the outside of cartons with breakables or delicate electronics. Also, mark ‘this side up’ on items containing electronic devices.

Hansraj Budhiraja, CEO, AB Sea Container Pvt Ltd, said:

* Organise your cords and remotes: Take photographs of how cords are connected to their devices for easy reassembling later on. There’s nothing more frustrating than untangling wires and trying to figure out which electronic device they belong to.

Wrap up your cords neatly and label them so you know which cord belongs to which device. You could also use colored stickers on each cord and the same color sticker where the cord connects to the electronic device. This will save you the hassle of trying to figure out what fits where.

* Knowledge of packing: If you are lacking in knowledge regarding the packing of an electronic device, it would be better to read the user manual for the same. This will instruct you in the best manner so that nothing goes wrong during the process.

* Moving inventory list: Make a list of the components in each box. Make sure you have got all the parts before you start assembling.( IANS)

Apple Inc. to Sell Mac Computers With its Own Main Processors: Bloomberg Report

Report: Apple Plans to Sell Macs With Own Chips

Apple Inc. plans to sell Mac computers with its own main processors by next year based on the chip designs currently used in its iPhones and iPads, Bloomberg reported Thursday.

The iPhone maker is working on three Mac processors based on the A14 processor in its next iPhone, suggesting the company will transition more of its Mac lineup away from current supplier Intel Corp., the report added, citing people familiar with the matter.

Apple Inc. started using Intel’s processors in 2006 and a year later all Mac computers featured its chips. Since then, Intel has made chips for other Apple products such as modem chips for its iPhones.

Apple has always relied on outside suppliers for its modem chips, a crucial part that connects devices like the iPhone to wireless data networks.

In a bid to make its own chips, Apple bought a majority of Intel’s modem business last July for $1 billion and settled a long legal battle with supplier Qualcomm Inc. over the chipmaker’s patent licensing practices.

Apple’s Mac computers generated $7.16 billion in revenue in the last reported quarter while Intel’s PC unit that includes modem chip sales recorded $10 billion in sales in the last quarter.

Demand for PCs Rise and Shipments Fall Due to Coronavirus Pandemic

Work from home has increased demand in the production of PC and laptops.

As the world began dealing with a massive remote workforce coupled with millions of kids taking classes online at home during the COVID-19 lockdowns, demand for PCs soared in Q1 2020 but the health crisis caused severe delays in production and logistical issues, leading to worldwide PC shipments falling over 8 percent (Year-on-Year) in the first quarter this year – the largest decline since Q1 2016.

In the Q1 (January-March) quarter, vendors shipped 53.7 million desktops, notebooks, and workstations, according to market research firm Canalys.

Lenovo led the market with 12.8 million units shipped, HP came second with 11.7 million units, followed by Dell at 10.5 million units.

Apple, however, was hit the hardest in Q1, as its shipments fell over 20 percent to 3.2 million units.

“The PC industry has been boosted by the global COVID-19 lockdown, with products flying off the shelves throughout Q1,” said Rushabh Joshi, Research Director at Canalys.

“But the PC market started 2020 with a constrained supply of Intel processors, caused by a botched transition to 10nm nodes,” he added.

This was exacerbated by factory shutdown in China for a larger part in Q1.

“The slowdown in supply met with accelerated demand, as businesses were suddenly forced to equip a new remote workforce, placing urgent orders for tens of thousands of PCS, said Doshi.

Children too needed their own PCs as schools were closed and classrooms went online.

In India, Chromebooks and business laptops started disappearing from the shelves even before the 21-day lockdown was announced from March 24 midnight, as millions of Indians across the spectrum began working from home as corona-positive cases began emerging from various offices from early March.

A Lenovo spokesperson told IANS that there has been an uptick in demand for laptops and other accessories in the social distancing times.

“Inevitably, given the rise in the need for remote and flexible working from businesses around the world, we have seen an increase in demand for laptops and supporting accessories,” said the spokesperson.

Industry insiders informed that HP Inc has also seen a huge demand and its work-from-home products were completely sold out in the country.

However, the PC, print and laptop majors are now facing the supply issue as retail outlets are shut, online platforms selling essential items like groceries while demand is still coming from all the quarters.

According to Ishan Dutt, in Q2, few businesses will be spending on technology for their offices, while many homes will have been freshly equipped.

“A global recession has begun — businesses will go bankrupt, will millions newly unemployed. Even governments and large corporations will have to prioritize spending elsewhere,” Dutt said in a statement.

Find Out How AI-Based ‘Smart’ Systems Help in Communication Amid Pandemic

AI-based 'smart' communication way to go during a pandemic

Daily life during a pandemic means social distancing and finding new ways to remotely connect with friends, family and co-workers via Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based smart systems could play a major role in keeping our conversations on track, say researchers.

According to the study, published in the journal Computers in Human Behavior, humans having difficult conversations said they trusted artificially intelligent systems – the ‘smart’ reply suggestions in texts – more than the people they were talking to.

“We find that when things go wrong, people take the responsibility that would otherwise have been designated to their human partner and designate some of that to the artificial intelligence system,” said study first author Jess Hohenstein from Cornell University in the US.

“This introduces a potential to take AI and use it as a mediator in our conversations, for example, the algorithm could notice things are going downhill by analyzing the language used, and then suggest conflict-resolution strategies,” Hohenstein added. The study was an attempt to explore the myriad ways – both subtle and significant – that AI systems such as smart replies are altering how humans interact.

Choosing a suggested reply that’s not quite what you intended to say, but saves you some typing, might be fundamentally altering the course of your conversations – and your relationships, the researchers said. “Communication is so fundamental to how we form perceptions of each other, how we form and maintain relationships, or how we’re able to accomplish anything working together,” said co-author Malte Jung.

“This study falls within the broader agenda of understanding how these new AI systems mess with our capacity to interact,” Jung said. “We often think about how the design of systems affects how we interact with them, but fewer studies focus on the question of how the technologies we develop affect how people interact with each other,” Jung added.

The researchers said they sought to explore whether AI could function as a “moral crumple zone” – the technological equivalent of a car’s crumple zone, designed to deform in order to absorb the crash’s impact.

“There’s a physical mechanism in the front of the car that’s designed to absorb the force of the impact and take responsibility for minimizing the effects of the crash,” Hohenstein said. “Here we see the AI system absorb some of the moral responsibility,” Hohenstein added. (IANS)
