Google Music Beta on iOS Devices

Google Music Beta

Google Music Beta can now run on iOS devices mainly with HTML5 Web interface which will facilitate the users in listening to their favorite songs. The application has not been quite popular among the masses and the Google has been trying to make it a part of everyone’s life.

The users will have to sign in the Music Beta account through iOS device and then they can access on the web application.

They could access the library where they would be provided with the options of artist, album, song, genre and playlists. They can access the search option and could find out their favorite songs.

To take the Google Music Beta Web app on your iPhone you will have to download the app through music. google. com. As you will access the web might ask you about your convenience over increasing of the Database Size.

However, there are a few drawbacks of this application as it does not has a music store where you can save your songs and can only listen to those uploaded from the PC. Also, one cannot remove any song and albums.

The application can be played on Safari chrome but needs a little upgrading to overcome the faults it possess.

It’s also free for up to 20,000 songs. Apple’s iCloud will almost certainly offer a better overall experience, but it comes with only 5GB of free storage–enough for about 1,000 songs, give or take.

MUTE Electric Car

MUTE Electric Car

Germany-based Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) is rolling out ‘MUTE’ a purely electric, energy-efficient city car, at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt.

The strategy involved in MUTE was to manufacture a mass-production vehicle at an overall cost on par with that of comparable combustion engine vehicles.

MUTE has been newly developed from scratch. Every part has been optimised for three main factors: efficiency, low overall cost and safety.

With MUTE, researchers from the TU Muenchen have created an agile, sporty two-seater for regional road traffic. It has space sufficient for two persons plus luggage. The L7E certified electric motor, which is electronically limited to 15 kW, accelerates the light vehicle to 120 km/h.

Its lithium-ion battery is designed to guarantee a range of at least 100 km, which can be extended by a reserve zinc-air battery when needed.

Its sporty suspension and the active torque vectoring differential drive ensure good cornering stability and excellent driving performance.

“Low weight is essential for an electric vehicle,” says the TUM vehicle engineer Prof. Markus Lienkamp.

“Greater weight requires more battery performance for the same range, which results in higher costs. Greater weight also results in reduced dynamics for a given power output. But we want a car that is affordable and fun to drive.

MUTE will showcase the TUM’s answer to future challenges in personal mobility at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Germany.
