Gmail On Android Now Lets You Send & Request Money in U.S

Google has announced that Gmail users can now send money via the Gmail app on their Android devices.

The ability to send money via Gmail has been available to Gmail users since 2013, but only through the desktop version of Gmail. Now the Gmail users can do it from their Android Devices also.

Sending money in Gmail is as easy as sending any other attachment. Just tap on the attachment icon and choose whether you want to send or request money.

Recipients are able to receive or request money right from the email itself—without having to install another payment app. They can even arrange for money they receive to go directly into their bank account.

Google says that there are no fees involved on either the sender or receiver side, it is free for both parties.

This feature is currently available in U.S. only .

StEnSEA – A new way of Storing Energy at Sea

Engineers in Germany are testing a promising new design for storing energy.
This project is named “StEnSEA” i-e Stored Energy in the Sea. It involves installation of large storage facilities on the sea floor, in combination with offshore wind farms.

The operation principle is similar to that of conventional pumped storage power plants, but based not on two reservoirs, but a hollow sphere. The inflowing water drives a turbine to generate electricity. When there is a surplus of electricity in the grid, part or all of the water is pumped out of the sphere. The commercial target size per sphere is currently at about 20 MWh per storage unit
Larger storage capacity can be reached, when multiple spheres are connected to a so called energy park

A hollow sphere with an inner diameter of 30m will be submerged to a water depth of about 700m, so the hydrostatic water pressure creates an energy potential. Due to this applied pressure, electrical energy can be generated with the help of turbines and generators as the water flows into the sphere. If surplus power is available (usually during the night), water can be pumped out of the sphere again, thus effectively charging the storage system. This innovative concept uses the sea itself as upper reservoir.

Ultrashort light pulses for fast ‘lightwave’ computers

Extremely short, configurable “femtosecond” pulses of light demonstrated by an international team could lead to future computers that run up to 100,000 times faster than today’s electronics.

The researchers, including engineers at the University of Michigan, showed that they could control the peaks within the laser pulses and also twist the light.

The method moves electrons faster and more efficiently than electrical currents—and with reliable effects on their quantum states. It is a step toward so-called “lightwave electronics” and, in the more distant future, quantum computing

Intel acquires Mobileye for $15.3 Billion

Intel has confirmed that it is acquiring Mobileye, a leader in autonomous driving technology, for $15.3 billion. Accordint to TechCrunch report, it is the biggest-ever acquisition of an Israeli tech company.

The acquisition will couple the best-in-class technologies from both companies, including Intel’s high-performance computing and connectivity expertise and Mobileye’s leading computer vision expertise to create automated driving solutions from the cloud through the network to the car.

The combination is expected to accelerate innovation for the automotive industry and position Intel as a leading technology provider in the fast-growing market for highly and fully autonomous vehicles. Intel estimates the vehicle systems, data and services market opportunity to be up to $70 billion by 2030. The transaction extends Intel’s strategy to invest in data-intensive market opportunities that build on the company’s strengths in computing and connectivity from the cloud, through the network, to the device.

Gmail for Android now lets you send money as attachment

Google has rolled out an update for the Gmail app on Android that
adds the ability for users to send and receive money via email
attachments. After updating the app, you will have to tap on the
attachment icon and choose whether you want to send or request
money. All this is done through the Google Wallet app.
The $ button is present underneath the attachment button that
previously let you attach files, photos and videos to email. You can
receive or request money right from the email itself without
installing another payment app. In addition, you can also arrange for
money to go directly into their bank account. Recipients do not
need a Google email address and only the Gmail app is enough to
complete the entire transaction. With the latest feature, you can
exchange money with more than just other Gmail users. It must be
noted that this feature is free and no charges are levied for sending
or receiving money.
This feature is currently available in the U.S. only on Gmail on the
