I like budget airlines! But, how is it possible for airlines to have such low price? This video will explain.

Nokia 216

Microsoft will be releasing Nokia 216 and Nokia 216 Dual Sim. I thought Microsoft will stop making another Nokia phones. But, aside from the fact that smartphones are getting more popularity, there is still a huge market. I’m thinking of getting this new phone — when it’s available in Indonesia. Its “up to 24 days of standby time ” is just tempting. Of course, it’s might be less than that. But, I can accept 14 days of standby time. The overall specifications are not bad at all.

Google’s AI Object Recognition Accuracy: 93%

How’s the accuracy of Google’s AI to identify objects in an image? According to the research report, it’s more than 93%. It’s 93.9% to be precise.

Today’s code release initializes the image encoder using the Inception V3 model, which achieves 93.9% accuracy on the ImageNet classification task. Initializing the image encoder with a better vision model gives the image captioning system a better ability to recognize different objects in the images, allowing it to generate more detailed and accurate descriptions. This gives an additional 2 points of improvement in the BLEU-4 metric over the system used in the captioning challenge.

Google Allo

I just had Google Allo — another messaging app by Google — installed on my Android phone. There are already some messaging installed and used on my daily basis. Well, basically, I only use Telegram (mostly) and WhatsApp. And now, Google Allo. I tried Google Assistant more inside Allo, and it works pretty well. I think the messaging feature will be something I will not be using.

Malaysian man spent 18 days in Changi Airport lounges using 31 forged boarding passes

Malaysian man spent 18 days in Changi Airport lounges using 31 forged boarding passes.

He downloaded images of mobile boarding passes issued by two airlines – Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines – from the Internet, and used an image editing software on his laptop to alter them.

Raejali inserted his name, a false flight number and a false destination on the fake mobile boarding passes, before sending them to his phone. He forged 31 such passes and used them at nine lounges run by five operators.

Find and Remove Duplicate Photos on Flickr

I’m organising my Flickr photos and want to find the easy way to remove duplicate photos that are already in or outside albums. Flickr does not offer the simple tool to work on this task. After searching for a while, there is Flickr Dup Finder 2. It’s a simple tool to search for duplicates and remove them. It’s utilising Flickr’s API and it works really good. At least for now, I already found more than 1,600 duplicate photos.
