Ford GT: Get Some Knowledge of the Car’s Technology and Features

The announcement of Ford GT is one of the biggest revolutions of the automobile industry. While all the others are planning for it till now, Ford like always who stays ahead of technological skills has already declared it.

When Ford Motor, the automobile manufacturer promised to deliver a supercar with 440kW power, it was too astonishing for the world. However, Ford has already expanded our expectations with the announcement of the specifications for the 2017 Ford GT edition. This car is powered by a 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 engine with EcoBoost technology, and the model can easily deliver up to 647 horsepower along with 550lb feet of maximum torque. As the total weight of the vehicle is much lower, it gives an added boost. The weight of the car as per the makers claim 3054 lbs and can reach a top speed of 216 miles per hour. The car uses 20-inch Michelin Pilot Sports Cup 2 rubber wheels that comes with carbon ceramic braking. The powertrain is attached to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox for transmission. That is enough to impress a car lover!

Automakers have been making the shift to electric assist in recent years to make cars more energy efficient and easier to equip with computer-controlled self-steering systems. Skilled drivers though like their own involvement and brands like Ferrari and McLaren have stuck with it for just this reason. The GT has a gigantic rear wing which moves to reduce drag and increase the downforce and act as an air brake while it is needed. The active suspension system of GT can also lower the ride height by 15mm when it is in a special Track mode to further improve its handling.

Though exactly how the suspension adjustment works is not yet revealed by Ford Performance Chief Engineer Jamal Hameedi, but it is known that it involves a rocker and two springs.

The Competition and Comparison

The 2017 Ford GT is going to give a tough competition to the Ferrari 488GTB and the McLaren 675LT. The McLaren car weights less and is crowned with a more powerful engine under the hood. The McLaren 675LT, on the other hand, is powered by a 3.5-liter twin turbo V8 engine that produces 666 horsepower with 516 lb feet of maximum torque. The top speed of the car is pegged at 205 miles per hour, and it weights about 2982lbs. The Ford 488GTB is charged with 660 horsepower with 561 lb feet of torque and has a top speed of 205 miles per hour.

The production of the GT is being handled by Canada’s Multimatic which is based in Markham, Ontario. As per the news from the makers, the cars are being built at a rate of 250 per year, and the first samples have already been delivered. Along with the 500 GTs already sold, there has a list of 6,006 names who want to buy the next 500.

Fast & Furious 8: See the Cars will be Displayed!

The eighth Fast & Furious movie also titled as Fast and Furious 8, is hitting theaters in this April. Now as the movie is known for is excellent action sequences and awesome cars, the car fanatics always get intrigued to know which cars will be coming on the screen now! As the posters too, display some of the vehicles now, it is time to take a quick look at the cars of Fast & Furious 8.

Plymouth GTX

Dom played by Vin Diesel, driving Plymouth GTX in the movie. He has always been a muscle car person. It is reported that this will not be a normal GTX, but will come up with a different engine (LS3). The GTX has a NOS cylinder, which is kind of a trademark and something we have seen Dom using a lot in his previous F&F movies.

Nissan IDX

Showcased at the Tokyo Motorshow in 2013 Nissan IDX is one of the most stunning cars of the film. There is a rumor that the company will make a production version of the IDX. Now coming to the film, there is still no news who will use the car or for what purpose it will be used. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson calls the car “a $2 million Nissan prototype” and has posted a video on the social media and that is making this car most curious of all.

Corvette Stingray

Corvette Stingray will be driven by Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). It has been finished in red and features much wider tyres, and of course, there is a place to mount the camera at the back. Letty has always shown driving muscle cars, and this one does do justice to her.

Subaru BRZ

Subaru BRZ is also not sure of its owner in the movie. But as it is an RWD car and fitted with skinny tyres, that makes it is easy to make the car go sideways. It is fitted with a wide body kit and has been slammed, so we can be sure to see this one in some of the fighting scenes.

Bentley Continental GT

Roman played by Tyrese Gibson has always been known to drive flashy cars. It receives a dual tone paint finish with white and red, massive chrome rims has been lowered and gets a new body kit. But it is true to grab your attention at any cost!

Rally Fighter

A custom built car which will be driven by Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) in the movie, is built and has been raised by Local Motors. It will have massive off-road wheels, a bull bar up front which is finished in red and has the height of an SUV.  It has a muscle car looks and rightly fits the lady!

Apart from the above-said cars, there are also a Ram truck which looks like a weaponized farm vehicle hanging off the back and also the “Zombie cars” of Cleveland, Mad Max on ice in Iceland and of course the Muscle cars in Cuba. They are all part of this stunning film to add the glamor and power!

Should you Buy the iPad Air 3?

A new year has begun and a new iPad model is about to hit the market. From the rumors we have received, it looks like Apple is finally going to refresh their iPad Air lineup with the new release, the Apple iPad Air 3. However, since there’s already a good number of different iPads in the same 9.7 inch display size, Apple might make the new iPad Air 3 more affordable over the pricier and more capable iPad Pro models. For people who prefer something smaller, the iPad Mini lineup is already there.

With so many lineups and models in the present market, should you buy an iPad Air 3 if it comes out this summer or buy something else?

Possible Release Date

We are looking forward to a March release of the iPad Air 3. The last week of March looks like a sweet spot, because Apple released the iPad Pro 2 on 21st March 2016. However, the news of some chip error is floating on the air and if that is true, the event can get postponed up to June although the possibility is quite less. Nothing creates a hype better than suspense.

Also, another possible reason for a delay is the arrival of a new model; a 10.5 inch new iPad which the world hasn’t seen before. Apparently, Apple is planning on replacing the 9.7 inch lineup thus making the release date a bit delayed.

Pricing

As usual, the pricing would be around $550 for the basic Wi-Fi version, expect beyond $800 if you need the LTE variant of the iPad Air 3. In the UK, the pricing should stay around 400 pounds, depending on availability in the market. This was the pricing structure when the last iPad Air was released in 2014, it’s been long ever since so we can’t be so sure about the iPad Air 3 pricing.

Device Outlook

The iPad Air is already only 6.1 mm thick, an iPad any thinner than this may not be a good idea in terms of rigidity and strength. Although Apple still has a 0.5 mm margin to take care of, but that’s still in dilemma and mostly unnecessary. Although Apple is said to be working on using even stronger aluminum than the existing airplane grade ones they are using right now. For color schemes, a new Rose Gold variant will certainly be unveiled. We aren’t sure, but Jet Black seems like an option to us as well.

Assumed Configuration

There’s no official announcement regarding the iPad Air 3, we can’t say anything for sure. 2048×1536 seems like the perfect display resolution for a tablet that’s around 10 inches in size. iPad Pro has a true tone display with improved color gamut, using that in the iPad Air 3 will bump up the price. If Apple wants to make the Air 3 an affordable tablet, they might just omit the True Tone display and go with the regular IPS LCD they use.

For storage, iPad Air 3 would likely follow the iPhone 7 footsteps.

Conclusion

If you need recommendation on buying the iPad Air 3; go for it. If you need a smaller or larger variant, there are the iPad Mini and iPad Pro variants as well.

One person drive/flies the drone, another person monitors the sensors and the cameras and the third person usually handles the communications and makes calls and contacts with the customers, commanders or other related persons.

Can drones contribute to safety and security?

LG G6 New Features and updates

The LG g6 promises to be this year’s major release from the Korean giant and will look to overturn bigger rivals like Apple and Samsung’s apple carts when they come up with their own offerings later this year. We already know a thing or two about the G6. We learned about a week ago that a stunning new feature had been added to the gamut of new features the LG G6 would have to offer. Apparently, the new phone will feature a new 18:9 display with a superb resolution of 2880×1440 pixels.

The LG G6 will come with a 5.7-inch screen with a QHD+ display, which LG claims will be the future of the smartphone display. Contrary to previous rumours, the 5.7-inch screen will be the standard size of the new phone and not a 5.6-inch one. The new panel of the phone will be slimmer, lighter and more manageable thanks to LG’s in-Touch technology.  This new technology will manage to fuse the display and the touch panel matrices all-in-one body, making the LG G6 physical module eminently slim. LG has officially stated that the new phone will be less than 1mm in thickness. The new display ratio of 18:9 will boost the growing demand in bigger screens while the physical size is still retained. When compared to the standard 16:9 screen ratio, the 18:9 ratio will make the picture actually appear bigger due to a better compression ratio. Although it will not have any significant change in form or function, the horizontal and the vertical elements of the display will be markedly improved.

The LG G6 is also rumoured to sport reduced bezels, which while not rendering them completely extinct, definitely does away with the look. Sources suggest that the bezels are reduced by 20% on the top and by 10% on the corners of the new phone. Keep in mind that the bezel-free display is the flavour of the season. The Samsung galaxy S8 is said to sport a near bezel-less display while the iPhone 8 will look forward to ditching the bezel completely.

LG has also stated that the G6 will sport a better and a newly redesigned outdoor visibility factor; this will be the result of increased transmittance of the new phone. All this and still the LG G6 will still look to reduce the power consumption of the phone by a whopping 30%. The new 4200 mAh battery on the phone will power the phone and the battery consumption of the phone will probably be enough to exceed a day of use.

The LG G6 will have to succeed and do well for LG has reported a loss in the last quarter of last year. To overcome that upset, we believe that the media pundits and the PR machinery that LG has under its aegis will be put to full use while the production and manufacturing departments will work overtime. We are expecting that the G6 will be out at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of February. We ask you to watch this space.
