We here at Reno iPhone iPod Repair love everything “tech” related. Smart Phones, Smart TV’s, Smart Cars (when are we going to get a Smart Car of the Super variety i.e. McLaren?), and everything else Smart or tech. That is why we had to share this video of Armatix Smart Gun from YouTube:
This could either be a really really good thing, or a really really really bad thing.. We are sure it is going to be a little bit of both through the process. With new technologies there are going to be nay sayers mixed in with the advocates, but we are just excited that it involves guns.
We’ll get more on this soon. Hope you enjoyed the video let us know what you think via twitter or facebook!
Short Answer? No… (See Video Below) There are cases when a new sim is required, but there are also times when you can just cut your old one down to size!
Do I need a New Sim Card for my New Phone?
The other day I was inquiring about insurance on a Samsung Galaxy 6S. The unfortunate incident happened while I was at the local watering hole one night. That’s the end of the story because that is all I remember. I put my phone in my pocket, paid my tab, and remember unlocking my bicycle to get home.. Then there is a lapse of about 15 minutes.. I came to a few blocks from my house no worse for the wear. At least I thought.
Looking for my mobile device the next morning I realized that it did not make it home with me. Calling the Cantina proved useless. In fact it sounded like the girl on the other end knew exactly what happened, but she failed to indulge me with any details.
At any rate, after my pride of loosing a $700 phone had recovered I put in a claim. My phone was lost (or stolen..) after all and that’s what insurance is for. I had an older Samsung Galaxy S5 lying around luckily which I would use until the Edge returned. This is when I ran into the cell network scam of a life time. $15 for a sim a new sim card? Ok.. Ok.. My old phone hadn’t been used for a while, but it would not fit back into the insured phone once it arrived. Why? Because the sim would be to big. The newer sim cards are great because they “break down” in a sense. The break away design allows them to get smaller depending on the sim tray they will be fitting into (but they will not get any bigger FYI).
So I paid the money… Had this new sim card in my old phone, and when my new phone would arrive I could simply break it out of it’s outer shell if you will and drop it into the micro sim trey. Done.
Then more Crazyness…
My wife wanted to use the new phone and for good reason. She hasn’t had a new device in some time, and why should I get another chance at it when I’m constantly loosing things (plus she paid the deductible). Point taken.. But her sim card is to big. I’m not paying another $15 for a different sim so she can use the phone… Then the search lead me to the following video:
Will Dominoes Pizza start using Robots and Drones for Delivery?
It’s true, minimum wage has been on the rise these past few years. That’s great for people! However; our US economy still has plenty to be hungry about. Some companies are already thinking about a way to keep operation costs down.
What’s cheaper then paying a hardworking high school kid $15.00/hr? A robot that will deliver pizzas for $15.00/week!
Dominoes Pizza Testing First Robotic Delivery System
We don’t know for sure if this is Pizza Giants motive here in the US, and this Robot is under Dominoes Pizza Australia’s watchful at at the moment. So will the US even see this pizza technology on our shores? We don’t know, but with the way politics are going these days it could be sooner then later.
Here in the US Dominoes pizza has their $5.99 deal, and that gets our families business every other week or two. Dominoes Pizza has always been on the forefront of Pizza Technology in my opinion. Their Dominoes Pizza App (Pizza for Apple) and their online ordering process is light years a head of the rest of the pizza world. Picking your pizza making theme with music and dialog is kinda fun…
So when we saw the robotic Pizza Delivery system got a green light for testing in Australia we knew they were for real. Check out this development video they published online:
It sounds like “DRU” will be sidewalk surfing down the streets for local delivery Down Under soon. If it passes all the major tests with 100% accuracy it could get put into production. We are looking forward to seeing the results as live beta testing is happening right now.
Once we hear more from Dominoes Pizza we’ll keep you posted!
