The Nokia 6: Nokia’s First Android Smartphone

Shipping with a SnapDragon 430 system on chip (SOC) and aluminium unibody the new device features 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of on-board storage alongside microSD support, a 16 megapixel main camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Nokia 6 runs on Google’s Android Nougat platform with Dolby Atmos sound processing and is manufactured by Foxconn. It will be sold exclusively in China through online retailer JD.com.

HMD in December took over the Nokia feature phones business and struck a licensing deal that gave it sole use of the Nokia brand on all phones and tablets for the next decade and HMD will pay Nokia royalties for the brand and patents, said Yahoo! Finance.

Why the S&P 500 index should reach 2.4K

Market is in a rising trend, but is now testing the ceiling of the trend channel. Further rise to 2406 or more is signaled  from a rectangle formation by a break up through the resistance. The index has support at points 2190.

ATmega328P-PU

ATmega328P-PU is commonly used in many projects where a simple, low-powered, low-cost micro-controller is needed. It is designed for use in industrial automation and home and building automation.

Seriously, why are these Microcontroller units (MCUs) so affordable? If you search the internet, you’ll notice that the modern version of the design dates to the 1980s. However, these things will help you in moving from an Arduino Prototype into an actual PCB.

If you are building your own Arduino you will need to burn the bootloader. You may also have a malfunctioning bootloader and need to reinstall the bootloader.

Even if you are new to Linux distros, you probably know that is generally not a good idea to use the same tools for domestic purposes and for professional work.

General Purpose:

macOS, Windows, Ubuntu, Fedora, Remix OS

Mobile:

Android, iOS, Windows, Ubuntu, Sailfish OS

Alternative workstation:

Mint, Phoenix OS, Debian, openSUSE, CentOS

Lucas Numbers

Édouard Lucas (1842 – 1891) is known for improving and expanding the Fibonacci series. Lucas worked in the Paris observatory and later became a professor of mathematics in Paris. Similar to the Fibonacci, the ratio between two consecutive Lucas numbers converges to the golden ratio. Lucas numbers appear in nature often enough to prove that they reflect some naturally occurring patterns.

Try following example at compilejava.net

public class Lucas {

   public static void main(String args[]) {
      int x,y,z,max; //Declare four integers
      x=2;
      y=1;
      max=10000;

      while( max > x ) {
         System.out.print(x+", ");
         z=x+y;
         x=y;
         y=z;
      }
   }
}

Lucas numbers (beginning at 2): L(n) = L(n-1) + L(n-2).

2, 1, 3, 4, 7, 11, 18, 29, 47, 76, 123, 199, 322, 521, 
843, 1364, 2207, 3571, 5778, 9349, 15127, 24476, 39603,

C++ Game Programming with SFML

Simple and Fast Multimedia Library (SFML) is a software development library designed to provide a simple API to various multimedia components in computers.

According to some experts, SFML is so easy to get started and is therefore a good choice if you are a beginner. I strongly recommend learning C++ with a mentor. C++’s greatest strength is how scalable it could be, so games that are very resource intensive are usually built with it. If you, on the other hand, prefer simplicity over control or don’t program much, you may prefer to choose another engine.

Download the 32-bit version for Visual C++ 2014 if you’re using SFML with the Visual Studio IDE (Visual C++ compiler).
