Sophia is a humanoid style robot that was developed by Hanson Robotics, a Hong Kong based company. It was orginally developed for use in nursing homes but since 2016 the company has been hoping that humanoids such as Sophia could become something a part of everyday life. Sophia was unveiled at the South by Southwest Festival in Texas in 2016. 2016 was a big year for Sophia as the robot would become an official citizen of Saudi Arabia and then late in the year be named the Innovation Champion for the United Nations; the first non human to be named a U.N. official.

Google's parent company in Alphabet, Inc. is responsible for the AI technology that makes Sophia and other Hanson Robotics humanoids function. Sophia has made numerous appearances on national television news and talk shows as well. As expected, Sophia made a huge splash and had a huge turnout at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show.

The most notable difference between Split AC and Window AC is in their structure and variation. A Split AC has two primary components, a condenser away from its evaporator, which rests inside the furnace. A simple window AC is a joint structure of all its parts in one unit. The inside unit is installed in the target room, and it works by taking inside warm air and throwing out the cold air as the output.

While the outdoor unit, known as the compressor, is installed outside the target room and is attached to the internal unit through drainpipes and electrical cables. The interior unit utilizes less space for installation, and they are much quieter than window ACs. A window AC requires less effort for its installation.

The correct answer is that the diode is forward biased and conducting, according to my research. This is because the anode (or the positive side of the battery) has more power. It should allow the current to flow. However, if the polarities (or the charges) were reversed, it would be reverse biased and not conducting. When a battery is put in backwards, it simply doesn’t work - as many things do when they’re not used correctly.

This said, this could be wrong. The specific information needed is not easily available on the web, and for the uninitiated, makes little to no sense. When looking into this kind of a problem, it is better to go to an electrician or someone who knows what they’re doing.

Overclocking is the process by computer developers to be able to stack all of the hardware that they can into one device in order to get the maximum amount of processing speed. When a computer is larger and has more processing capacity, more fans are needed in order to cool down the computer. Fans can be found on all computers and they are there to cool down the computer. With space very small in a very overclocked computer, liquid helium is able to get into all of the spaces inside of the computer so they all will be assured of being cooled down. With all of the parts of the hardware being compressed so tight, a regular fan miight not be able to adequately cool down the parts. Liquid helium can be able to cool down the parts and that is the reason that the Intel i9 processor and hardware setup uses liquid helium.

The reason that the United States is so scared of Huawei is that the company and its foothold in the smartphone and electronics industry is one where it could dictate how the U.S. smartphone industry will operate. Huawei is a major supplier of the equipment that makes smartphones work. This means that any smartphone that is made in the United States is certain to have some kind of Huawei technology in it. With the so called trade war that is brewing between China and the United States, Huawei and the Chinese government could raise the prices of these technologiesif the U.S. were to place huge restrictions and levies on Chinese imports. If this were to happen that would mean that the prices of smartphones in the United States would rise dramatically. The smartphone industry and market is a strong one in the U.S. so the reason that the U.S. is scared of Huawei because they are afraid that they could raise the prices of their services and products thus meaning that smartphone prices would rise and would most likely put a devestating hurt to the U.S. smartphone market.

The iPod was a victim of the ever so increasing in the innovations of the computer and mobile industry. Going online and downloading music was a groundbreaking thing when it first came out to the consumer public well over 10 years ago. With smart technology becoming more and more of the norm these days, people and their ability to access music is easier. BlueTooth technology can also be noted as one of the reasons of the downfall of the iPod. One now can simply put a BlueTooth in their ear, link it to their smartphone and have access to all of the music that they want. Then one can certainly say that the smartphone brought an end to the iPod. Smartphones can store thousands of music titles just like an iPod could. The smartphone became the new fad and with any new fad the old ones are most certainly shown the door or at least collecting dust on the shelf.

A flagship killer is a term that is widely used in the smartphone industry. A flagship product is one that is usually touted as the best product that a company produces. A good example is the iPhone X. At the moment, the iPhone X is the flagship product of Apple and its smartphone sector. A flagship killer is a product that is developed that is made to closely emulate the flagship product of another company. The flagship killer of the iPhone X would be the Samsung Galaxy 8. The Galaxy 8 was made in direct competition to the iPhone X. It has the similar specs and look but the thing is that the Samsung Galaxy 8 costs lest. That is the main goal of a flagship killer product. The product is sold cheaper but at the same time itlooks, feels, and is able to produce like a product that is widely used and popular. The flagship killer concept has been in the smartphone industry for a long time. It fosters competition but it also opens the door for cheaper materials which could be looked at as not up to par or not as high quality as some of the major flagship products.

The reason that air conditioners are so expensive is that there are a lot of different parts that make an air conditioner to be able to do what it does. There are all kinds of electronic parts that are involved and then are the things such as freon and copper tubing that needs to be used. R-22 is the standard freon that is used in air conditioners and there are huge government restrictions on it. This means that only qualified people should be the ones who work with freon. It is a volitile gas and it certainly is one reason that air conditioners are so expensive. Then there is having the air conditioning installed. Some people need help with installing a window air conditioner so there is a good chance that the company they bought the AC from will install it but at an extra fee. Standing air conditioners are always more expensive than the traditional window AC. Then there is the smart technology which can be found in air conditioners these days and that too drives up the price of an air conditioner. Air conditioner's are so expensive because there is so much technology and other stuff that makes the AC operate that it garners a steep increase in the retail price.
