Say hello to the new Google Assistant in this new chat app

Google Allo is the new chat app to have for Android and iPhone users alike. It has the Google Assistant built in and it’s rolling out since a couple of days across the world. Germany for example got it yesterday available. I have been using it a couple of days so far and must say that as for now it is absolutely fine.  Surely It does the things you would expect from a proper messaging app: it sends pictures, it lets you share stickers, it works with group chats either.

But that is nothing new, so why would you switch away from another messaging platform? Well, the one thing Allo has over the competition is itself, Google. Well, better that it packs the new  Google Assistant direclty in it. Google Assistant is quiet funny put also partially annoying for me so far. Fortunately, talking to the Assistant in Allo is not complicated at all. You type your query, it answers, you type follow-up questions, and it answers those. It’s very, very good at web search; it also knows your upcoming flights from Gmail and your calendar and various other things you’ve told Google. It can tell you what restaurants are nearby and help your narrow down your preferences. If Google Search or Google Now is good at it, you can basically trust that the Google Assistant is good at it, too.

 

But is this ability to have conversations with what might be the smartest smart bot aout there right now realy enough to get you and your friends to switch away from whatever you are currently using to Allo ? Well, it is not for me, majorly because most friends don´t use it.

 

 

Allo is tied to your main phone number which you enter on setup, but you can switch your SIM card out while traveling and continue to use the service without any problems. As long as you don’t active Allo on another device with the same number at least you will be able to access the service.

What I think where Google has missed out on something is the integration of Duo into Allo.  In my opinion Video calling is the one feature that is not available on WhatsApp or Messenger as of yet, and if Google had managed to bake it into Allo, it would have gotten a decent advantage over its rivals.  But that is just my 2 cents…

And while Google hopefully works on that integration, I have the very hard task of convincing my friends and family to switch to Allo. I will report back later on how that worked out.

Conclusion

A nice messaging app with hopefully a bigger future then Hangouts. If you get enough of your friends on baord of this messanger you will enjoy it.
Get it on Google Play

Reviewed: Rodizio Baumhaus, Hannover

I had been out with some friends to try out the Rodizio Baumhaus in Hannover. It is a fully in wood build house which give the whole thing a lot of charme. Rodizio is a Brazilian Churrascaria which is basically an all you can eat Restaurant.  The grilled meat is served fresh from the stick at your table. The service staff cuts of the desired slices of meat directly at the table with a very sharp knife. Periodically, the staff offers different sorts of meats to try out.

While that sounds great it took ages until some Cortadores (Waiter) make it to the table again. We might have had bad luck sitting outside and hence missing the most runs, bit we had been there 3 hours and did not really get much to try out.  The most meats tasted very good while some had been already cold and not been on the grill for long enought time. Something you wouldn´t expect on a 24,90€ pricetag.

The side dishes had been alright, the trick is to eat not too many sides while waiting for the meat to come around, else you are full before the second round. What was brilliant however was the banana bread they served as a free complimentary startet. This bread and the different dips had been amazing. I would have loved to take some home with me.

Overall it is a pretty cool location with super friendly service, but unfortunately we had been unlucky with the meat and timings of it. Luckily the location and the brilliant service has saved them the total result. I will go back there at a later stage to see if we had been out of luck this day.

You Need This Mini VW Bus !

A pretty need tool to go for groceries with your kids. This VW Mini Van.  This is the electric ride-on Volkswagen bus that conveys children over driveways and sidewalks in groovy finery at 4 km/h. With the distincitve features of the real-life model—twin decorative windshield wipers, bumper, folding side mirrors, and red/white trim—this ride-on is equipped with working headlights and two opening side doors.

Its range is limited to about an hour-and-a-half of driving on an eight-hour charge, so if you’re going up the country you’ll want to bring a spare battery with you. But at least it’s 100 percent electric, so you don’t have to worry about any shady emission cheating going on here.

On 250$ the price is not too bad as well for this cool Van [LINK]

Movie Review: The Magnificent Seven

the-magnificent-seven-0aA classic film reinvented with the cinematography of today.A well vision movie about the Old Wild West, the rustic feeling, the vibe, the scenery and the history re-imagine for viewers who love the nostalgia of cowboys and the west.

The movie started with Sam Chisolm, a well rounded gun man & bounty hunter (played by Denzel Washington) was hired by Emma Cullen, a simple farmer women (played by Haley Bennet) to get revenge and get back her hometown that was taken by the notorious industrialist Bartolomew Bogue, (played by Peter Sarsgaard). For that reason, Sam recruit camaraderies, to join and help him fire guns to this town stealers until they get what they deserve.

The first part of the movie, the recruitment of the six, is a bit long and makes the story line slowly develop until it reach the climax, which then they make it short, making it less entertaining.

They have casted top actors in which helps the movie and their characters create  well built personalities.

The end part and the climax is well directed,dose of action , gun fights, bullet shots and explosion, with talented actors who can do justice for their part making you feel every scene worth watching.

I would say the movie, ” Magnificent Seven” is a classic movie in modern vision, with perfect scenery shot of the Old West, well played characters that make the movie interesting,and a nostalgia of the movies enjoyed by the good old days.

Acme Blog Movie Rating:  3.0 Stars

The Magnificent Seven is starting in UAE cinemas on 22.09.16. Check out the Trailer below:

Google Maps’ new shining blue beam guides Android users travels from now…

Google has replaced the tiny Maps arrow on Android OS with a beam that actually can way better represent the way you are facing. When you fire up the updated app, you’ll now see a blue beam that shines towards your destination like a flashlight.

compass_blogpost_screenshot

The beam also tells you how accurate your phone’s direction is at any given time. The narrower the beam, the more accurate the direction. The wider the beam, the more likely it is that your your phone’s compass is temporarily uncalibrated, which means that its sensors aren’t working as they should be. This can happen by doing something as simple as charging your phone or walking by a metal pole, which most of us do everyday. Thankfully, there’s a really easy fix. Any time you want to get back on track – not just when you see a prompt or notification – simply move your phone in a figure 8 motion a few times. This should immediately result in a more accurate direction.

Once you master the curving motion, you’re one step closer to having a more accurate compass when you use Google Maps on your Android phone.
