Google’s New Product Google Hire Might Prove To Be Disastrous For LinkedIn ?

Google has always created some or the other news and so it is a smart company. Currently, Google has come up with the new project and that is Google Hire. This is a smart thing and now it seems that Google has converted this into its own applicant tracking system. It can be briefed as ATS. This is kind of a competition for the counterparts as in Indeed, Monster, Linkedin and so on.

Google Hire is yet to come on the public platform. But the portal is already there and the job applications are invited. The job providers or the employers have been given access to these profiles through their Google Accounts. However, since this is just the beginning there has been doubts in the mind of people that is there anything specific that Google is going to do with the applicant’s search history? If yes, then this will be a big show down and it will be a bit bad.

How will this tool function?

It seems that Google Hire will work as a recruitment tool and that the employees will send across the resumes; employers will be able to check them out and would appoint them if the job is there. Based on the experience and expertise of the employees, there would be job hire process. However, these things are not yet out. It’s still a question that what kind of options are available for the job seekers.

As per one of the Google’s Spokesperson, Google Hire is something where the process of application and job hiring would be quite smooth.

The G Suite users will be able to check out the applications online and most of the solutions would be sought on the web. There is a sample page folder on the portal and you can just check out the listings. At this point in time the UI looks quite simple and this portrays something like LinkedIn. Some of the market experts feel that Google is up to creating a smart applicant tracking system which will benefit both job seekers and job providers.

The question is that will Google make the information easily available to the rest of the people? Well, if such smuggling happens then it will be quite bad. But as per the past things that Google has come up with, it has never shared the private information and so this is a biggest benefit. This is a big shock for LinkedIn. So, how are things going to be post Google Hire? Well, the updates on these things are yet to come. So, just check out how Google can make things quite easy. Google would never come up with the product unless and until there is a solid plan. But these days you will see that the competitors still feel bit low due to this innovative tool. Just wait and watch what are the other updates in this field and how are things going to be.

 

 

 

 

 

LG To Launch A New Set Of “Indian” Phones By Diwali! Check Details !

LG, the South Korean Consumer Electronics master has now once again planned to get good smartphone business; now, it has a very good strategy for the same.

Yes, LG Electronics India is planning a new and affordable range of smartphones that have various features which would fulfill local requirements.

Ki Wan Kim, the MD of LG Electronics stated that the feedback of the customers would be taken into consideration and new products will be launched as per that.

He told that some new products are being prepared and they will be very different from those that exist. He has the eagerness for knowing more about Indian products in the consumer market.

Moreover, when someone asked him as to when these phones would be launching, he said that it would be somewhere around Diwali.

New phones are being benchmarked by the company; attempts are being made for adding some “Value proposition” so that customers can avail the same at affordable prices.

Kim stressed on 1 fact and i.e. the products should be differentiated so that more and more people are interested in buying the same. On the other hand, Samsung, which is the rival of LG has various features in customization for customers. These include “S Bike Mode” which helps 2-wheeler owners to attend calls without any distraction i.e. with automated replies.

However, he said that the number of models will be limited and they will be launched in selected regions only. The main aim is checking on the feedback and then expanding the investments.

Currently, there are 10 models that LG has in the Indian market between price range of Rs 8k to Rs 55k. currently, the smartphone business in India isn’t that vast and hence, some newness needs to be added to the same.

He said, “It is too small and even 10 times bigger would be nothing in number. Even 1,000 percent growth is nothing. It is not the time to talk about what our goal or target is.”

Kim also admitted about making mistakes and said that the company made assumptions that since they had gained success in air conditioners, refrigerators and washing machines, customers would readily go for smartphones as well.

He said that it’s not just to select models globally from the platform and add to the shopping list for launching in the market; lot of hard work is needed for the same.

Currently, LG Electronics India uses the Greater Noida plant to produce smartphones. Production in the Pune unit has stopped; earlier it was used for the CDMA phones.
If there is increase in demand, then in few months, mass production would be set up in Pune once again without any investment as such.

Researchers Launched Edible Batteries Which Could Give New Meaning To Medical Science

Usually, when we talk about batteries, the only things to come to our mind are lead, lithium and chemicals. Basically, we can think only and only of hazards. However, what if we tell you that now, you can get edible and safe batteries? Won’t you feel excited? Yes, there’s actually a revolution like this and you will be surprised to know more.

Gone are those days when digestible and edible batteries were just in dreams. Some researchers at US’ Carnegie Mellon University have made edible batteries from melanin (Skin pigment) and other parts of skin; a device of 5 milliwatt can be powered and that too for an impressive 18 hours.

Christopher Bettinger leads this team and says these edible batteries don’t cause any sort of harm; since human parts are used for the same, medical procedures that are complex in nature, can be conducted with great ease.

Want to know about the creation?

Well, we all must have heard of Melanin. It is a pigment that’s found in hair, eyes and skin. It has the capability of absorbing UV rays and protecting us. Moreover, they also have the capability of unbinding as well as binding ions.

With this powerful melanin, edible batteries have been developed. You can consume it and keep it in your body for 18 hours. Iron and copper that are abundant inside the body are used for this creation; it is the melanin pigment that acts as a negative and a positive terminal. Talking about the cathode, 600mg of melanin is used.

Researchers are also testing Pectin, a gelling agent which creates edible batteries.

Drastic change in medical science!

Thanks to these edible batteries that now, a device can be inserted inside the body that reacts perfectly to medical emergencies. These medical emergencies can be observed too; earlier, doctors had to wait for the occurrence but now, things will be changed. A lot of time will be saved and many deaths can be avoided.

For example, vaccine can be released for killing viruses or a life saving drug can be released in the intestine, to save the life of patients. Pacemakers also have batteries but many a times, they are quite toxic. Insulation is needed so that they don’t harm the body. Lot of risks and dangers are there due to toxic batteries; the body can be damaged. However, with edible batteries, the risk is really low.

Medical experts also suggest that these batteries can help in treating cancer; in cancer, the time is very important and such batteries work instantly.

This biodegradable battery looks like a capsule and is enclosed in a shell that’s made up of gelatin. Good therapies can be delivered for fighting various diseases with good safety and precision. After a person swallows the pill, the battery would come in contact with ions and current flow will be activated.
