ICC - Testing the level of accuracy of the technology that is used in Cricket.


In modern days cricket umpire often takes the help of technology before taking the decisions. Now a day the ‘REVIEW’- system has a role to play in Cricket. Umpire’s decision has been reversing by taking the ‘REVIEW’. Now the time has come to look up the technologies that are using to take those decisions.

For last few days some technician are busy to take an accuracy test about the technology that is widely used in modern day cricket at the University of Oval. Since 2009 the ball tracking system is designed and operated by Virtual Eye. Basically it judges the LBW (Leg before Wicket) dismissals and the other technical support in cricket.

The DRS (Decision Review System) has several criteria to follow, such as hot spot, snicko and the zing bails. Now ICC (International Cricket Council) has decided to test the accuracy on those technologies. ICC general manager Geoff Allardice is in Dunedin to help the technician. The whole work is leading by the Engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This time they are using lasers to track the ball whether the ball is hitting the stumps or pass the stumps, whether the boll over bounced with the help of a camera over the top of the crease. Animation Research Ltd chief executive Ian Taylor says, Each and every technology has its strengths and weakness, it is good to test the accuracy of those technology so that the errors will come and can work on that errors later.


Testers will find the loop holes and work on that. They will come back with their findings and inform ICC. We all hope soon a better and errorless technology will be introduced in international cricket.

On the 12th of September, Apple introduced iPhone X at an event in Cupertino, Calif, on Tuesday at the Steve Job’s theater. iPhone x also comes with iPhone 8 and iPhone 8+.

AT&T 5G Evolution: A Fake 5G Network!

AT&T announced that, they are planning to release their 5G network in about 20 cities by the end of 2017. However the company has started their operation but it seems a hard way down to the success.
By saying 5G evolution, AT&T is not going to give the full facility of 5G network. On the other hand 5G evolution is not 5G network but it has a better performance than 4G. 5G evolution is actually a new packet of 4G but then again it performs better than 4G. The new network is limited and can only used by Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus user. By using this network people can download faster than they have downloaded before in 4G.

5G Evolution will cover only 20 areas, which include San Francisco, Nashville, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, Austin and Los Angeles. The network is already rolling out in some parts of Austin and Texas. As for hardware, we could see several more devices that take advantage of the new network this year.

Best Samsung phones under 200$ in 2017!

Recently iPhone X has been launched. Also other flagships like Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG G5 are already out there. Google pixel 2 will arrive anytime soon. You'll get the futuristic features like fast charging wirelessly; face ID, Amoled screen and so on. But those phones are really expensive and you know that not everyone is interested to spend his/ her’s hard cash. Most of us use phone to call someone, to text someone, and to use some social networking sites only. People like us are happy with getting good battery life and with good camera performance.

Though many people will likely spend a lot of money to buy some expensive phones to show off without knowing how to use all of these features. Personally, I think it is stupidity to spend lots of money for the phone as I can get important features in affable price. This post is for those who are looking for phones in affordable prices. Today I'm going to show you some Samsung's phones which have a durable battery lif…
