My Favorites from Chief Keef and 300 this Year

| Entertainment, Fun & Sports | No Comments

Chief keef and his clique, 300, totally destroy rap music’s downfall by keeping the gangsta feel to it while adding new elements from Chicago, bringing attention back to the rap game and getting his pocket fat at the same time.

His collaborators, especially SD, Lil Reese, or Montana of 300 do not stay low around him either, as they all have big hits in the whole U.S and their own city, Chicago.

In this article, i am going to talk about my favorite songs by them.

So here i go:

1 – Lil Reese – US

When i heard the bass drop in the 20th second, goosebumps took over my whole body. The instrumental gives a feeling of financial superiority over your enemies, a sense of invincibleness and pure narcissistic pleasure.

The producer of the instrumental, Young Chop itself, picks this beat as the second favorite of his beats, and describes it:

“Epic. I love that beat. When I was making that beat, it was more of a futuristic, but I had to go back in there and switch it up and make the kicks more hooder, more heavier. The beat was really different, and I just made it to how it sounds right now.

“I really didn’t even use a keyboard. I used the damn—you know the regular keyboards for the computer? That’s what I made that beat on. That’s what I make half of the beats on, like ‘3Hunna,’ ‘Don’t Like’ were all made on the keyboard like that.

“I taught myself [the keyboard]. You know in school they gave you a music class? That shit was just stupid. It was not teaching me. It wasn’t telling me about what I wanted to do. It was some whole other orchestra type shit, like opera. I’m like, ‘No, I don’t want to hear that.’ But I put it in my beats.”

Overall a great song.

2 – KP ft. Chief Keef  – Choppa Go Bang

KP made an appearance in Chief Keef’s song “Choppa Go Bang” and he just gone hard. The song gives you a feeling of war, being in the military, and erases the empathetic feelings from your mind with violent and hateful verses.

This is one of the songs i will take in my mp3 when i will be going to army the next year.

3 – Lil Reese & Chief Keef – Traffic

The video was weird and i got 200 upvotes in YouTube for the following comment:

“Lol reese gives chief keef an i wanna f*** you eye like no other”,

And exactly, the way lil reese was staring at chief keef was like that, but that is excusable because he was on that lean as  you can see from his eyes. Anyway overall a catchy and great song to listen in a party.

4 – Wacka Flocka Flame & Chief Keef & Bo Deal – Murda

“I got life in the trunk, thirty stacks in ma pocket” is what sounds in my head as i bob my head to a song that i am not even listening to now. Purely hypnotical and gets you going.

 

Thanks for the read and keep it up!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

British Student Develops iPhone Software to Turn Table Top into Complete Keyboard

| Software | No Comments

Here is a good news for all iPhone users as a British computing student at Goldsmiths named Florian Kraeutli has reportedly develop unique software. By using the software, any table top can be converted into a full sized keyboard that is invisible. The tool analyses vibrations when fingers tap the surface. The software is named as Vibrative that makes use of iPhone’s 3D accelerometer for measuring the attributes of every tap that is made on the table. The vibrations cause strength and frequency, which is compared with the ‘training data’ for working out the exact location.  This location is then converted into a virtual keyboard where the user can type.

The system is designed in such a way that it is successful to determine the keys a user intends to type almost every time (around 80%). To ensure the words are accurately spelled, the system feeds data into a dictionary that is auto correct.

British Student Develops iPhone Software

Some people are saying that the signals are not that strong. Even Kraeutli also said the same thing. He said that the system is a proof that using iPhone as an invisible full fledged keyboard on a table top is possible. Once the sensitivity of the accelerator is improved the quality of signal and accuracy will also increase. He also elaborated on why the prospect of this system is higher if the smartphone accelerators are made more sensitive. The accelerometers in the smartphones are made less sensitive so that the devices can store more battery power. The software now works better on the surfaces that are smaller because more vibrations are made on such surfaces with every tap.

While elaborating the usage of the software, he said that it is important to make the system learn diverse patterns of vibrations of every surface on which it is being used. However, it is not necessary to teach the software of the different patters of individual keys. He also demonstrated the usage of the technology on a video. Kraeutli made use of a paper where “keyboard” is printed for the purpose of training the system and then typing a text message. He also demonstrated that for a tough typist, how the paper is not necessary. When Vibrative is properly trained, it can be used directly onto a wooden tabletop. The initiative of Kraeutli has won appreciation and the software seems to be useful by many experts.

Those who haven’t checked the video where Kraeutli is shown to train the keyboard software, are amazed on how he did it using iPhone as Apple do not permit the way how the iOS keyboards function. It was revealed that Kraeutli made use of an iPhone 4 that is jailbroken and thus he demonstrated the system without any issue of Apple’s restrictions. As the Android smartphones do not have such constraints, keyboard app technology such SwiftKey have flourished.

Now, it is to be seen how this software is further developed so that the smart phone users can use a table top like surface as a virtual keyboard easily.

Asus EeePC 1015PEM

| News | No Comments

Although tablets are becoming more and more popular, Asus isstill betting on their new line of netbooks to cause a stir in the market. The Asus EeePC 1015PEM is their first ever netbook to be provided an Intel Atom N550 that has a speed of 1.5 Ghz. There are also some good and bad features but overall, it is fine if you look at the price.

 

The design of the EeePC 1015PEM is a decent one. The curves on it actually make it look more appealing to users. In order to avoid smudging, the palm rest area and lid are matted.

 

The EeePC 1015PEM is in no way made for HD viewing or 3D gaming. It only has a 10-inch screen which is the smallest that inexpensive notebooks can go.Simple web browsing and office work can still be done without any problems regarding display. Still, it would have been great to see a 1366 by 768 resolution on this netbook. After all, they did upgrade the processor. Too bad they overlooked the display.

 

It is also becoming a trademark of Asus not to provide a full size keyboard. The EeePC 1015PEM is equipped with a 92% size keyboard which is small compared to the rest of the 10-inch netbooks on the market. The touchpad is a different story as it is bigger than the ones found on other netbooks. The mouse buttons could use some tweaking as they are a bit resistant. In time, though, one can get used to it.

 

At the price of $380, one cannot really expect much features from the Asus EeePC 1015PEM. It has the standard VGA, ethernet and 3 USB ports. It also has a multimedia card reader. More importantly, it has a 5400 RPM hard drive that has a capacity of 250 GB. This is usually the benchmark of 10-inch netbooks. There are some known to provide only 160 GB of storage so 250 GB is not totally bad. The 1GB ram available is the lowest that netbooks can provide and is what you get on this device. Evidently, there is still a performance increase thanks to the dual-core Atom N550.

 

One of the main reasons why people purchase the EeePC 1015PEM is its energy efficiency. It has a 63Wh battery inside that managed to last 8 hours and 13 minutes. That is a huge achievement considering that two cores are running at the same time.
