Boeing Brings It With Software Fix of the 737 MAX Franchise

Aviation gets a major technological upgrade.

That should be a no-brainer for vehicles meant to fly high in the sky with a bunch of humans. Think about it. This is where technology really should play a massive role in the development of excellence, safety, efficiency and more, but the fact is Boeing has a lot of hoops to jump through with respect to U.S. regulation.

The Issue Is the Boeing Automated Flight Control System


Who knew people would be a little iffy about that? Planes that can fly themselves? Who needs pilots? After all, everyone's going crazy over self-driving vehicles, machine learning and automation -- smart cities and self-lacing sneakers. But planes? Why are people iffy about that??

It's a plane -- in the sky. Combustion. Pressure. Danger. Anyone see Apollo 13? That's up in space, of course. But for all intents and purposes, people pay money to fly on a plane, and if something goes wrong with a system designed to fly on its own, honey, we have problems.

So naturally there will be some hoops to jump through. But all in all, this makes the aviation industry quite the hotbed for technological advancement, plus pilots will have quite the easy job in flying these suckers in and out of clouds, plus landing.

In the past five months, of course, Boeing has been under major scrutiny -- with two deadly crashes to answer for. Washington lawmakers undoubtedly and understandably want to know what's up as the crashes may have been caused by those same automated systems.

Currently the FAA (Federal Aviation Industry) hasn't approved the anti-stall upgrade and other software fixes just yet. But if Boeing keeps pushing for it, they'll get exactly what they want. The question: will we be ready to get on a plane that could potentially fly us into a freakin' mountain?

And Here We Have Another Story About How Technology Plays a Major Role in Safety

More importantly, bear in mind this important fact: our pilots do matter. They need the training necessary to not only monitor those systems, but to take over when necessary. Machine automation only goes so far: the rest have to be taken care of by us. Wouldn't you agree?

Extra computer training: not only do our pilots need to know how to operate a plane, but they also need to know how to work with a complex computer system -- almost IT style with troubleshooting experience. This is doubly important given the fact they'll be thousands of miles in the air with a computer system that could crash, randomly, and they just can't call up the help desk and submit a "ticket."



Thankfully Boeing Will be Getting Their 737 (and Counting) Pilots Trained in Computer Tech

That and some serious modifications, tweaks and new best practices in place -- long story short, we have an entire industry evolving from the ground up, for good reason. It's too ensure we don't ever have nasty crashes like this happening again. Those were the days when the random crash occurs because the pilot's drunk or sleepy. Now crashes are occurring because tech's faulty.

Anyone want to go flying? I'll still fly. Plenty of safety measures in place. And I believe in technology. Do you? SIGN UP FOR A VIGYAA ACCOUNT AND BECOME A TECHNOLOGY INFLUENCER WITH YOUR OWN OPINION and be sure to CHECK OUT THE DATA DRIVEN INVESTOR FOR MORE INSIGHTS

There are different kinds of models are available in the global smartphone markets and this stuff is increasing day by day. But the constructive use of a phone is going far behind. So we will suggest you keep it kind and valuable for yourself and others while using a smartphone.

They expect that their motivation behind inventing latest technological framework is only to facilitate the customers.

Well coming back towards our main topic that is a smart and productive use of a phone. As we all know that people socialize on cellphones as much as online, cyberbullying can be mobile too. So there is a heavy need to treat people on phones and the web the way you would in person. In this way, we would expect that the risk of being bullied goes down. Be aware, too, of people randomly taking pictures at parties, in locker rooms, etc. these are the hidden cameras that are quite hard to find out. As most of us may not want to be tagged in social-network photo albums of others without our permission, so get ready to deal with it.

Productive use of Honor 20

One of the major drawback that has emerged slowly but with a wider scope is setting among youngsters. The vast majority of kids are smart today. They don’t like such stuff and even don’t take, send, or post or store nude photos of themselves or peers on their phones. But we can see that some people do and they are indulging in such activities intentionally or unintentionally. So this is a warning for such users who do so can be charged with production, distribution, or possession of child pornography, a serious crime. Due to excessive and uncontrivable use of a smartphone, they can also be subjected to jokes, bullying, blackmail, expulsion from school, loss of a job, etc. and the images can circulate forever. Just don’t go there and don’t try to cross your limits.

Today the smartphone options and latest technological devices have shrunk the space between people. We are like machines and even don’t care about the value of presence. For example, if you do a lot of texting, consider the impact that being “elsewhere” might be having on the people around you. If you will not pay attention to your guests at your home, it would be very impolite. Your presence and real presence during meals, at parties, in the car, etc. is actually a sign of respect and appreciation for others.

Try to facilitate your guests as possible as much because you will get the same respect in return in the future. We know that sometimes while sharing the joy of Honor view 20 price we all would be lost and couldn’t pay attention but you have to still manage the things.
