1. Remove or reinstall an application that takes up a lot of disk space
First, if you’re not too often use an application, you can remove it. From all the applications you use frequently enough, there may be among them who have a lot of data that is actually not important.
By opening the tab usage (usage) in the general settings (general settings), you can see which applications are most frequently used. It seems clear that the application of photos, music, and podcasts takes up a lot of disk space. But the disk space consumed by applications, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram maybe more.

Google reportedly brewing an incubator project that is specifically intended for their employees. This information was first known from The Information report some time ago.
Incubator project called ‘Area 120’ is made to ensure the best talent Google do not need to get out of the company.
So, Google employees will be able to develop their ideas with the support of Google, including funding.
Google executives called responsible for the project is Don Harrison and Bradley Horowitz. Unfortunately, detailed information about the program is still very small.
However, based on information from an anonymous source, the program allows Google employees to keep working while continuing to develop pioneering project.
Through this program, employees who accepted the proposal can focus entirely on completing the pilot project. Therefore, the originator of a pilot project need not worry about losing a job at Google, when a pioneering project did not go well.
After several months of development, startups can then be established as a new independent company. Google’s move to launch this program is called to prevent the departure of their best talent to the company’s competitors.
Previously, Google has just lost Regina Dugan Head of the Advanced Technologies and Projects Group who participated in Project Tango and decided to leave to Facebook last month.
News burglary iPhone perpetrators in San Bernadino makes some people wonder about the security of his cell phone. Technology experts, Tyler and private detectives from Hairford Investigation, Ton Hairford, has solved many cases of digital devices during his career.
Hairford assess that the iPhone is a phone safest on the market. But the fact that the system could be compromised by the FBI, raises its own concerns.
“Apple device, or a Mac computer, never susceptible to PC viruses like most,” he said.

For those of you who have seen the Star Wars movies may already be familiar with 3D hologram message that is sent through the droid R2-D2 or BB-8. On the other hand, maybe not a few who feel that communications technology is only in the film.
However, today in fact one of the famous technology company, Microsoft, has successfully developed similar technology. Microsoft has just introduced a new communications technology called ‘Holoportation’.
Although no intact as in the movie Star Wars, this technology allows users to communicate with others via a 3D hologram technology. So, two people from different places can communicate directly and as if it were in the same place.
To do so, the project which was launched by Microsoft Research’s Interactive 3D, users should use the augmented reality HoloLens. Thus, the user will see a person in the form of a 3D hologram of the display in HoloLens.
In addition, to provide a better experience, Microsoft is also preparing completeness camera that allows users to see, hear, and interact with other people holograms in real-time.
Not just to communicate instantly, Holoportation also allows users to record conversations via hologram had to watch at a later time. In fact, users can also change the size of the hologram is displayed and adjusted as required.
Unfortunately, Microsoft has not revealed more information about the completeness of the camera used. However, some have referred to Microsoft’s technology is promising, because it is able to bring a new way of communicating that do not simply rely on video only.
In addition, although still in the development stage HoloLens Project Director Alex Kipman already using Holoportation for practical purposes. On one occasion, Kipman invite a NASA scientist Jeff Norris to talk about HoloLens of a separate place through technology Holoportation.
For your information, HoloLens is Microsoft’s augmented reality device that has been sold since March 20 last. However, for now Microsoft has introduced HoloLens aimed at the needs of application developers. At the inaugural device, Microsoft equip HoloLens with some programs, such as Holo Studio, Skype, and Holo Tour.
