Google Pixel 5 Automatically Turns on Reverse Wireless Charging When Connected to USB Adapter

first_imgGoogle Pixel 5 has a cool new charging feature that has just been spotted. Apart from being a phone with a spectacular camera, the Pixel 5 was advertised by Google as being a powerbank on the fly with its reverse wireless power-sharing feature. But unlike many other phones that support wireless power-sharing, it has recently been discovered that the Pixel 5 can automatically turn into a Qi wireless charging pad when it’s plugged into a USB Type-C power adapter.The details of the feature [spotted] by 9to5Google are on a support page created by Google. The Google Pixel 5 offers the regular reverse wireless power-sharing when it comes in contact with another phone or accessory – like the Pixel 4 or the Pixel buds – that supports the functionality; but one has to manually enable this feature by going into Settings > Battery > Battery share or by adding a toggle switch for it in the quick drop-down menu.- Advertisement – On the contrary, when plugged into a power source and charging, the Pixel 5 automatically enables the power-sharing feature for a short period to detect and charge any Qi-compatible device placed on its back. If no compatible device is detected within 30 seconds, the feature turns off automatically. The Google Pixel 5 also turns off the feature on its own when the receiving device is fully charged, but also if the power transmission is not optimum because the receiving device is not placed on the Pixel 5 correctly, or if the receiving device reaches a high temperature. A user can also manually turn off the feature from settings or set a minimum battery level for the Pixel 5 after which the feature will turn off.A recent teardown of the Google Pixel 5 had revealed how the phone is capable of supporting reverse wireless power-sharing despite its aluminium body. It reportedly has a cut-out right in the middle of its aluminium shell that lets the wireless charging coil work without any hindrance.The Google Pixel 5 was launched on September 30 along with a 5G version of the Pixel 4a. But both the Pixel 5 and the 4a 5G are limited to 5G markets and are not likely to come to India or Singapore anytime soon.- Advertisement – Why are smartphone prices rising in India?

Biden makes his first remarks to the nation as president-elect.

first_img“What is our mandate?” he said. “I believe it’s this: Americans have called upon us to marshal the forces of decency, the forces of fairness, to marshal the forces of science and the forces of hope in the great battles of our time.”Senator Kamala Harris, the vice president-elect, spoke first, telling voters that they had chosen “hope and unity, decency, science and, yes, truth.” She invoked her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, who came to the United States from India at the age of 19, and paid tribute to the women “who throughout our nation’s history have paved the way for this moment tonight.” The message, as it was throughout the campaign, was rooted more in a sense of values than in an especially ideological viewpoint, an approach that helped him build a broad coalition throughout the campaign but that will be tested in partisan Washington.Yet Mr. Biden grew impassioned as he insisted that for all of the tensions in the country, Americans still wanted to see their leaders find common ground. He promised to bring steady leadership and experience to meet the staggering crises facing the nation, most prominently the coronavirus. – Advertisement – WILMINGTON, Del. — Joseph R. Biden Jr. addressed the nation for the first time as president-elect on Saturday night, delivering a message of unity and trying to soothe the extraordinary divisions that defined the last four years in American politics.“Let this grim era of demonization in America begin to end here and now,” he said.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – In remarks before a drive-in audience in Wilmington brimming with longtime friends from Delaware, his home state, he directly appealed to the tens of millions of Americans who backed President Trump’s re-election, seeking to make good on his central campaign promise of bringing the country together. “For all those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight,” Mr. Biden, speaking at the conclusion of his third run for the presidency, said. “I’ve lost a couple times myself. But now, let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again.”He added, “This is the time to heal in America.”- Advertisement – “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” she said. “Because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities.” Mr. Biden’s optimistic speech, flecked with references to faith and American history, came 48 years to the day after he was first elected a senator from Delaware. He spoke from a flag-bedecked stage outside the Chase Center on the Riverfront, an event center near the Christina River, where he invoked themes that shaped his presidential campaign. last_img read more

Automated test for West Nile screening of donors approved

first_img Though the number of transfusion-transmitted WNV cases has decreased dramatically since testing began, a report in the Feb 2 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report detailed the cases of two South Dakota patients whose disease probably came from a single infected donor whose screening tests were negative at the time of donation. The CDC said the cases underscore the importance of clinical recognition, effective WNV blood screening strategies, and investigation coordination. The Procleix TIGRIS system, developed by Gen-Probe, Inc., San Diego, and marketed by Chiron Corp., Emeryville, Calif., was approved by the FDA on Mar 2 and uses Gen-Probe’s Procleix WNV assay, which is already being used in the company’s semiautomated screening system, Gen-Probe said in a March 2 press release. Mar 9, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The first fully automated test to screen donors of blood, tissue, and organs for West Nile virus (WNV) was recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The automated system allows blood centers to process 1,000 individual blood samples in about 14 hours, Gen-Probe said. Blood testing sites typically use pooled samples to screen for WNV, then switch to individual donor testing once predetermined WNV prevalence triggers are met, the company said. “This is the latest step forward in what has been a very successful industry-government effort to keep blood safe from the emerging threat of West Nile virus,” he said in the press release. Mar 2 Gen-Probe press release WNV was first detected in the United States in 1999 and has since become endemic. For the 2006 season, 4,256 cases of West Nile virus have so far been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); 1,449 cases involved West Nile encephalitis or meningitis, and 165 were fatal. People usually catch WNV from the bite of a mosquito that has picked up the pathogen from an infected bird or animal. Most people experience no symptoms or only mild illness, but the virus can cause serious infections of the brain and nervous system.center_img Mar 2 FDA press release Development of a WNV blood test began in 2002 when researchers discovered that the virus could be transmitted in blood, and nationwide screening for the virus began in 2003. Testing detected about 1,400 potentially infectious blood donations from 2003 to 2005, according to the CDC. Feb 2 MMWR article on South Dakota caseshttp://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5604a4.htm CDC 2006 West Nile virus figures See also: The advantages of a fully automated system are that it can reduce the potential for human error, speed up donor screening, and enhance the safety of blood and tissue products, said Jesse Goodman, MD, director of FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, in a March 2 FDA press release.last_img read more
