They show official art of Ganondorf from Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom

Today a new trailer has been released for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdoma game that has the most die-hard fans of Nintendo, and we have been able to see a lot of content in just three minutes. And of course, what caught the most attention was finally the official reveal of the villain Ganondorf.

This made the Japanese company itself share an official art of the character on its social networks, having quite interesting details that can lend themselves to the well-known theories among fans. And the appearance he has on this occasion is very similar to that of Wind Waker, but with some details of Twilight Princess.

Chek out:

Remember that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom goes on sale on May 12 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

Editor’s note: The truth looks very imposing, but there is still the question if it is a version of the past, or if it is the skeleton that appears in the first trailers that somehow managed to regain its power.

Oppo R9 and R9 Plus are here

Oppo is another of those companies that They are joining Xiaomi and that phone battalion Chinese to show us that there is another way of doing things without forgetting a great design, hardware with great features and a very affordable price for a large number of users who do not want to pay €700 to have the latest in technology.

We can see this in its two new announced phones: the Oppo R9 and the R9 Plus. Two smartphones that we already have here and that are the flagships of that manufacturer for this year 2016. The Oppo R9 is the smaller of the two with a 5.5 inch screen, while the R9 Plus reaches up to 6 inches. Both are characterized by an identical design by having almost the entire metal body and quite remarkable hardware by using the MediaTek Helio P10 MT7655 chip in the first, while the second is switched to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 chip.

Two phones focusing on the camera

The smaller of the two, the Oppo R9, has a 5.5-inch screen with 1080p resolution and its CPU we found a MediaTek Helio P10 MT7655 which takes us up to a clock speed of 2.0 GHz. The largest, the Oppo R9 Plus, has a screen that reaches 6 inches with the same resolution, although with a lower pixel density. Its chip is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652, one dedicated specifically to mid-range devices.

What they do find is in the amount of RAM with 4 GB and in storage with 64 GB. But what draws the most attention about these two phones that reach the medium-high range but which it turns out can be close to the high in several details, is their cameras.

In the Oppo R9 we have a 13 megapixel rear with an f/2.2 aperture and 4K video recording. In the Oppo R9 Plus, we are going towards a 16 megapixel one with F72.0 aperture and the Sony IMX 298 sensor, which we can complete with phase detection autofocus. A surprise is the number of megapixels, although these are becoming less and less important, with 16 and an angle of 78 degrees. They also have features like Beauty 4.0 to improve the photos we take with these cameras.

Your other details

At the moment we don’t have any signal about some technologies that Oppo presented at the MWC, such as MEMS-based optical image stabilization or SuperVOOC fast charging.

The battery of the two terminals is 4,210 mAh for the R9 Plus and 2,850 for the R9. By having VOOC based technology, Oppo claims that two hours of battery life will be provided for only 5 minutes of charging.

As for the design, nothing. We are surprised to see some very evident similarities with Apple phones. Something that we are already used to but if we had to look for phones that were good looking, the two new ones from Oppo would pass the casting tests. One of the details is the integration of a physical home button that hides the fingerprint sensor.

Oppo R9 technical specifications

  • 5.5″ screen 1080p resolution
  • Helium P10 Chip
  • 4GB RAM
  • 16 MP rear camera
  • 13 MP front camera
  • 64 GB internal storage

32 kilometers of solar roof for the new bike path built in South Korea

South Korea boasts the world’s first bicycle lane with 32 kilometers of solar roof, as an energy solution to power road lighting and charging points for electric vehicles

If we thought that the possibilities of technology photovoltaic in the urban design of cycle paths were exhausted with the SolarRoad experimental project built in the Dutch city of Krommenie, we were wrong. In South Korea have taken a giant step in combining solar energy with this sustainable means of transportation, by building the first bicycle lane with solar roof of the world.

As we can see in the video recorded with the help of a drone, the kilometer long structure of photovoltaic cells far exceeds 100 meters of the experimental section of the Dutch city. The bike path not only stands out for its cover, but also for the intelligent use of the space occupied by the median which usually separates the two directions of circulation of a dual carriageway. In this case, the separating plant hedges have been replaced by a double circulation platform for exclusive use for cyclists covering the interurban route of 32 kilometers that separates the South Korean city from Daejeon with Sejong.

Bike path with sunroof

The structure of photovoltaic panels that covers the upper part of the bike lane fulfills a dual function. While the shade generated by the sunroof protects cyclists from the direct action of the sun wave rain During pedaling, the surface integrated by the silicon photovoltaic cells generates enough energy to cover the energy demands of the bike. Lighting system of the highway and the energy supply of the charging points of electric cars. Unlike the case of Krommenie, not only is the length of the route exceeded, but the annual performance of the SolarRoad estimated at 50kWh per square meter is also far exceeded.

Another notable aspect of this innovative infrastructure lies in the security of cyclists on the road. So that they can circulate with complete peace of mind, it has been decided to close the bike lane laterally with a structure of side fences that act as protection against possible accidents due to road departures, while minimizing the psychological sensation of vehicles passing at full speed just a few centimeters from the user.

Taking advantage of the median of a highway is an interesting exercise in use of existing infrastructure for the integration of interurban stopover cycle paths. If it is also complemented with innovative solutions and creative production solar energy to power electric car charging points and related roadside facilities with 100% clean energythe savings can be important.

Logically, the investment necessary to cover the 32 kilometers of the bike lane with millions of photovoltaic cells is very high, which may raise certain doubts about the economic viability of the project. Still, the promoters of the world’s first solar roofed bike lane claim that it is profitable in the medium and long term. An aspect that could be optimized shortly with the latest advances in photovoltaic cells low cost and high efficiency that come

Brendan Iribe: Oculus Rifts could be free in the future

The Oculus Riftthe sinful dream of every gamer, in the future they could be free, the CEO of Oculus, Brendan Iribe to the microphones of Edge

The lower the price the greater the audience

My motto is The lower the price, the bigger the audience. I am obviously referring to the Oculus Rift. I would like to offer it for free in the future. At the beginning it won’t be like this, we still aim to sell it at a cost of 300 dollars, but I plan to further reduce the cost until it reaches zero with collaborations and strategies.

If Microsoft and Sony decided to subsidize us to use the sensor on their consoles, we would have enough money to offer it for free or with monthly payments ranging from 10 to 100 dollars. We are currently still working on the development kit which you can already purchase for the same amount mentioned above, but being a developer version, don’t expect full compatibility with all the titles. Furthermore, I inform you that the final product, when ready for the market, will be better than this and will fully support your PC.

Virtual reality

The Oculus Rift is a virtual sensor that allows the player to use two lenses (one for each eye) to play, which means that it is no longer necessary to play while looking into a display, as it will be like being inside a game, where the camera will be managed by the movement of our head.

For years we have always talked about virtual reality and not just in films. How many times have you imagined finding yourself in the game and being the protagonist? Whether I can say, I fought side by side with the Templars in the Crusades, I flew a plane or I escaped from the Slender. With Oculus it is possible to get closer to this fantastic virtual world. The headset will be available for now only on PC at a cost of $300 as soon as it is ready (most likely in 2014).


LG presents the first 5-inch display with Full HD resolution

We talked about it a few weeks ago, mentioning some initial characteristics, and today, finally, LG presented the first one to the whole world 5-inch display with Full HD resolution. The first example of display for mobile devices with 1080p resolution was presented during the apt event of Boston Display Week. Currently the first prototype of FHD display produced by LG it is not installed in a smartphone to be able to evaluate its potential, but is simply installed on the wall and protected by a case.

The features of this display they are unique in their species and it will certainly be exciting to be able to look at them up close and appreciate the quality, definition and sharpness of the images shown, even behind a display case.

As we now well know, this 5 inch display made by the South Korean manufacturer, as well as having a rFull HD resolutionthat is, a 1080pwas made with AH-IPS technology (Advanced High-Performance In Plane Switching), which improves the viewing angle compared to the current one IPS.

Furthermore the display can boast a pixel density record-breaking, no one has surpassed it yet, that is, well 440 ppi. Obviously these small images that we have reported do not do justice to the display qualitybut certainly with the continued development of LG and other large market giants, within a few months we will be able to see the first examples of Android smartphones with Full HD display.



RUMOR: Jet Set Radio reboot will be announced soon

A new game of Jet Set Radio could be revealed very soon. In April 2022, a SamaGame report emerged claiming that a “reboot” of Jet Set Radio budget was in development along with a “reboot” of Crazy Taxi.

At the time, the report noted that the games would be ready in two or three years. That was a year ago. Now, our first look at this assumption reboot unannounced has appeared online. Combining this leak with the previously provided timeline, it’s possible that an official reveal is very close.

The fact that game footage is leaking online suggests that there is footage ready to be shown and perhaps being prepared for it. And even if this is not true, this leak could accelerate plans for an official reveal.

Of course, sega could reveal the reboot on their own terms, but leaks often speed up game reveals. Who knows if sega will reveal it on his own or give the revelation to Geoff Keighley and Summer Games Festival.

However, there is little doubt about the validity of this leak. And SamaGame is also an excellent source. Combining the report and the leak, everything seems to suggest that the reveal will officially happen in the coming months, if not sooner.

That said, for now, this is just speculation. At the time of publication, SEGA He has not commented on the matter, nor on the leaked images. In other words, we don’t anticipate this changing, however, if it does, we’ll be sure to update the story accordingly.

In the meantime, we will also keep an eye on any further developments and update the story as necessary in this regard.

Fury Roads Survivor, the Apocalypse arrives at Milan Games Week (and on Switch)

During the Milan Games Week 2022 we had the opportunity to try the new version first hand Fury Roads Survivor: it’s about the version for Nintendo Switch, whose release date is not yet known, but which we can say is already very solid from a build point of view. The title of One or One Games is already available on mobile, however this new “skin” of the game will not be identical to the title we know, because it contains new tasty features, which enrich everything without distorting the main concept.

The development of this new version is natural consequence of the success of the game, thanks also to the great results in terms of sales, and the low cost. Coming to Switch is clearly taking work from a gameplay perspective.console optimizationbut this is also giving the development team the opportunity to optimize various factors, such as difficulty balance.

Fury Roads Survivor is still strong on its iconic graphicssome polygons that did not go unnoticed during the fair and which made the game recognized by those who have already spent pleasant hours with their mobile device.

The biggest news is undoubtedly the multiplayer, which can be applied either by driving two different cars or the same one (in that case, the player roles will be divided). In this way Fury Roads Survivor becomes choral experiencequick, which will get you into the loop in company.

Furthermore, on Switch the game will see some richer maps from the point of view of the distribution of objects (the various barrels that we can collect), maps which have been reduced to 3 for now, but with more coming soon after launch free updates. Obviously the game will be continuously supported, and the maps are not the only content that will be expanded.

As regards the usable cars Instead, there are over 60: some will be available immediately, others we will have to unlock them using game currency. In addition to the great classics, the racing cars that we have come to know on mobile, there are also dozens of cars inspired by pop culture, each with its own characteristics and performances. Will you be able to recognize them all?

The public response to the Milanese fair was incredible: theIndie Dungeons it was flocked by thousands of visitors, many of whom also had the opportunity to try out the game on the pitch, trying to beat the best records. Furthermore, on Saturday, a meeting was organised tournament of the game. “It was nice to see those who recognize the game, thanks to its iconic nature, it’s a great satisfaction,” Gioele, one of the developers, told us, “we are also happy with the players’ response, they are happy both to play together in multiplayer and to new control system, more suitable for the game”.

After ours Practice Testwe can absolutely confirm what was said: the build is solid, the gameplay is genuinely streamlinedand above all the more will depend by the player’s skillnot only when driving (or with a firearm, if you play in co-op), but also in predict where to go or how to use the map. Depending on your car you will have to choose in advance when to steer, how to manage the barrels to heal yourself, and above all try not to get stuck in the various objects on the map (or on the walls): it goes without saying that a level of comfort in the controls is therefore fundamental, and this switch version completely succeeds. There choice Of do not understand touch commands it was desired and winningas it poorly fits the purpose and philosophy of console gaming.

As we anticipated at the beginning, we still don’t know when this new version will be available for purchase, but from what we have seen so far, we can only be confident. Appointment at the release, or why not, at some other occasion even before it.

Apparently the failure is in the Internet Explorer rendering engine known as Trident or also known as MSHTML, which uses Microsoft Office documents. According to the company, victims receive a file in the ‘.docx’ format and They are tricked into opening it and thus stealing their information.

They achieve this thanks to the automatic execution they perform after downloading the file, and it sends them to a malicious web page that contains an ActiveX control that destroys ‘malware’ on the computer in order to infect the system.

It is for this reason that Microsoft assured that it is necessary to activate its standard antivirus, Microsoft Defender and Microsoft Defender for Endopoint, which help detect and protect against the vulnerability. It also helps fix the issue in one of the upcoming monthly security patches.

Recently, reports were released indicating interest in making an American version of the program, which could change the original story in certain aspects to adapt it to that audience. This is something that USA has done with other series, the most notable being Mighty Morphin Power Rangerswhich was taken from Super Sentai.

As reported by the media, Jeff Sneider from the podcast The Hot Mic , Netflix is looking to remake this western version of Squid Game and will be produced by David Fincher (Seven, Zodiac, Gone Girl). Although, at this time there is not any type of deal being closed that is currently in circulation.

Advantages and disadvantages of 5.5-inch mobile phones

exist 3 types of users: users who want a large mobile phone, users who want a small mobile phone and users who doubt whether one size or another is better. In this article we will analyze the advantages and disadvantages of 5.5-inch mobile phonesin case you are one of those doubtful users and it is clearer which is the best option when buying a smartphone.

Advantages and disadvantages of 5.5-inch mobile phones

Throughout these years we have been going from large mobile phones to small mobile phones, and then from small mobiles to large mobiles again. What’s going on? Why do some users look for larger screens and others smaller ones? In this article we will analyze it and see what to choose and why.

In my opinion, I prefer the large screens from 5.5 inches and up. Below I will tell you from my point of view what are the advantages and disadvantages of having a mobile phone as large as 5.5 inches or more. Let us also remember that this is the size that Apple has also opted for, despite being small mobile phones:

Advantages 5.5 inches

  • More screen to enjoy multimedia content: without a doubt the great advantage of having a large mobile phone is that we have more screen to enjoy multimedia content (watch movies, watch music videos, photos…) and of course, play the best games, since gambling is not the same for a regular size screen than for a large one that allows us much more.
  • Better application management: Having a large mobile phone will also allow us to better handle many applications, such as office automation. Being able to edit documents on a large screen is great because we have more space to do it, which makes it a more comfortable task that will allow us to despair less than from a small mobile phone through which we would not see anything.
  • Ideal for users who cannot see fine print well: If we give our parents or someone older a 5.5-inch mobile phone, they may throw it at our heads because it is huge. However, to use it you will not have to stretch your phone all the time or pick up your glasses to be able to send a WhatsApp. We could also solve this with a smaller mobile phone, but changing to larger font for accessibility, for example.
  • Easier to write: By having a large screen we can write more comfortably and quickly. If you find it difficult to write on your small phone, you will surely notice the change if you go to the minimum 5.5 inches.

Disadvantages 5.5 inches

  • More difficult to transport: It is clear that having a large mobile phone has limitations, such as being difficult to transport from one place to another. Being a girl it’s easy because we carry a bag, but boys have it more complicated. Although the truth is that a 5.5-inch cell phone fits in the front pockets of most boys’ pants (although many believe not).
  • The battery drains faster: It is clear that the more screen we have, the more battery we use. Normally manufacturers make it proportional so that if a user purchases a large terminal, he will have more mAh of battery so that the battery lasts longer proportionally. However, it always ends sooner. This depends on the use and how we have our device optimized.
  • Does it take longer to load? This depends more on the terminal than anything else. Normally, if the mobile phone is 5.5 inches it has a larger battery capacity, so it is normal that it takes longer to charge than a smaller one. However, it can come perfectly with fast charging and leave us speechless.
  • Is changing the screen more expensive? Normally, if we want to replace the screen because it has broken, it is more expensive if it is larger, although this is not true for all cases because it also depends on the quality. But what is clear is that if a 5.5-inch one breaks, you will have to go to the checkout and pay more.
  • More difficult to operate with one hand: It doesn’t have to be if you have big hands, but otherwise you might notice that you drop it more easily or simply find it difficult to handle it with one hand to unlock it or write on it. Yes, it is true that it will be difficult for us to handle it with one hand, it is not a myth, but it also gives us other things.

What do users prefer?

Each user is a world. Normally, if we focus on ages, we see that young people prefer large terminals, however, once they reach an age they already opt for smaller ones, perhaps because of transportation or because they simply think it is too big and they are not going to get the most out of it. so much juice

In my case I have a Nexus 6 5.96 inches. The truth is that it is not as big as it seems, since it takes advantage of the edges very well, and from top to bottom it is practically the same as the iPhone 6s, which is 5.5 inches. Why do I prefer a minimum 5.5-inch mobile phone? By the following:

  • More screen -> more possibilities.

A large mobile phone allows you to do everything, even do without a tablet because you can edit files, play games, take it anywhere and do everything you want without limits. That’s why it’s called a phablet. Definitely, 5.5 inches is the size I recommend to everyonebecause once you try it you will not want to go back to a mobile phone with a smaller screen.

What cell phone do you have? Does it seem exaggerated to you to have a mobile phone that is 5.5 inches or larger? It must be taken into account that 5.5 for many is the perfect size and there are even few terminals larger than 5.5 inches on the market.

Nicolás Rojas, CEO and co-founder of Imagine Apps, commented on the microphones of La Nube
What are the tips that companies should follow to create applications that are successful in the market. Furthermore, he pointed out that a very common mistake is creating an App without a clear objective.

“The main problem is developing it without a specific purpose. Create it because everyone is doing it. You have to think very carefully about the problem that this application seeks to solve.”he commented.

He emphasized that “an application is not for any company”, Well, you must think about whether this way benefits the client or the user.

“Put yourself in the shoes of the end user, what the client wants. It is common for disappointment in the application to be high, If you don’t see what you want in two clicks, you’re going to delete it,” he added.

Besides, He highlighted that entering the application should be easy, “We have to think about whether all the screens we have are really necessary, many times the answer is no.”

“When you try to be very innovative, you become extravagant. Maybe that works against you and the person becomes distracted. It is always good to ask for feedback from both users and experts,” he concluded.

Apple is the only brand that is growing in the computer market Carlos Oliveira October 10, 2023

Market analysis agency Canalys recently published a new report on the global computing market. In the data for the third quarter of this year, only Apple managed to grow.

Between July and September of this year, the global computer market was in the red with a general contraction. However, the source reports a reverse trend on the part of Apple, with this being the only brand to improve its performance.

Apple grows 1.7% when all your competitors fall

Analyzing the metrics published by Canalys, we see an Apple isolated in the green with a growth of 1.7% compared to the same period in 2021. This means that the American technology was sold about 8 million copies.

However, these figures place Apple in fourth position in the market with a share of 11.5%. That is, although it was the only one that registered effective growth in the third quarter of the year, it was not the one that sold the most computers during that period.

It is interesting to note that IDC also reports similar behavior, although with very different values. For this market analysis agency, Apple grew an impressive 40.2% in the same period, placing more than 10 million computers on the market.

The reason for this discrepancy is not well known, as both market analysis companies supposedly use similar metrics. In any case, the trend is the same and only the American giant sold more than the previous year.

For both institutions, this positive performance is due to the excellent work done by Apple with its M1 and M2 products. Furthermore, the recent presentation of the new MacBook Air with M2 has only consolidated the growth trend of American technology.

Lenovo continues to be the one that sells the most computers in the world

At the top of this hierarchy is, according to Canalys, the Chinese company Lenovo. This company comfortably leads the world computer market, despite its 16.3% contraction.

Despite this value, the Chinese company sold 16 million 880 thousand copies in the third quarter of 2022. This gave it a market share of 24.3%, very far from HP, which occupies second place.

This recorded an even steeper drop of 27.8% for a market share of 18.3%. In third place we have Dell with a market share of 17.2% after a contraction of 21.2%.

In total, the computer market sold 69,423 million units in the third quarter of 2022. This represents a drop of 17.7% which, according to Canalys, is due to the global macroeconomic situation and the current geopolitical situation.

How to save battery for Motorola Moto e5

Without a doubt, saving battery on the Motorola Moto e5 is a good solution if you often run out of battery on your Motorola Moto e5. Indeed, with these times and when we see how much we use our cell phones, saving a little battery is not a luxury. Everyone has already found themselves in the battery compartment in the middle of the night or during a crucial moment. If you no longer want this to happen, here is a brief summary of all the tips that will save battery on your Motorola Moto e5. So the bottom line is that we are eager for battery saving tips.

Reduce the brightness of the Motorola Moto e5 screen

The Motorola Moto e5 screen and the backlight are probably the two things that consume the most energy on the mobile. Since you will need to use the screen, the most efficient way to save battery power on your Motorola Moto e5 is to reduce the brightness. To do this, we suggest that you reduce it manually and do not set it to automatic adjustment.

Close apps you don’t use

Apps are a major source of power consumption on the Motorola Moto e5. Therefore, we suggest that you close all applications that you do not use. Besides that, it’s also great to close apps that are running in the background by going to the application manager. Some apps are greedier than others.

Turn off 4G when you are not using it

Whether 3G or 4G is enabled on the Motorola Moto e5, battery power is used. In fact, one of the best ways to save battery power is to turn off 3G when you’re not using it. You will notice that it gains a lot of autonomy.

Use as few widgets as possible

These lovely widget devices are proving to be very useful but not very good for battery life. So the less there is, the better. We suggest you delete all of them and encourage the use of the applications.

Disable useless notifications

Apps send larigot notices and these are not necessarily important. On top of that, notifications use the battery lightly. This way you can also delete notifications that are not useful to you.

Reduce the use of the vibrator

Another thing to correct is the use of the vibrator. Contrary to what many believe, the vibrator consumes more battery than the ringtone of your Motorola Moto e5. Therefore, you will be able to promote the ringtone with the vibrator, if it is possible for you.

Mentors, the entrepreneurship volunteers

They are not looking for fame or money. They don’t expect recognition either. They were entrepreneurs before and now they altruistically contribute their knowledge to guide an entrepreneurial project to success. That is the goal of mentors, and their reward.

For those immersed in the world of startups and entrepreneurs, the figure of mentors is part of the ecosystem. The name comes from Mentorcharacter from Homer’s Odyssey who He was the advisor of Telemachus, and which has survived to this day as a synonym for guidance, not only for people but also for companies that are starting out. «The mentor is that person who has experience in what an entrepreneur wants to achieve with his business and embarks with him on his adventure,” says Francesc Hinojosa, CEO of Eureka Experts and Eureka Startups. A guide that can be essential for the project to develop with certain guarantees of success and come to fruition. And these expectations are not free but are based on the fact that the vast majority of mentors have been entrepreneurs before, with their business successes and failures. And for that reason alone they have knowledge, personal experience and a vision that can provide approaches, solutions and help entrepreneurs grow in a more effective way What if they did it alone. «A mentor can help detect needs and define strategies in those areas in which they have more experience. But a mentor is not a coach, although sometimes he acts as a coach,” explains Sylvia Lorente van Berge Henegouwen, from Mobile Jazz and mentor at the Startupbootcamp business accelerator.

This outside experience must serve to avoid mistakes and save entrepreneurs disappointment. “It is an opportunity to share your own experience with new business leaders in order to help them be more successful faster and avoid the mistakes you yourself made,” says Luke Angell, Director of Business Development at Vittalia Internet and also a mentor. at Startupbootcamp.

However, having been an entrepreneur is no guarantee of being a good mentor. And in addition to knowledge and experience, an analytical approach, honesty and sincerity, willingness to help and generosity are required. «As a mentor, based on my experience, I try to help business growth and personal to my mind, helping in the rethinking of approaches, in the validation of alternatives, always basing the relationship on trust, transparency and honesty”, details Helena Torras, VP Operations Abiquo & Board Director, Managing Partner PaoCapital and mentor in Wayra, StartupBootCamp, Menorca Millenials and Barcelona Mentoring Program.

But there are also other necessary characteristics that mentors must possess, such as knowing how to listen, excite and convince (in short, communicate) and be patient. Empathy is also essential “to understand what lies beyond the business project and the people who lead it. It is also necessary to be very realistic but drink from the entrepreneur’s passion and know how to manage time and emotions. The mentor must, ultimately, provide balance«, highlights Lali Oms, businesswoman and mentor.

And what do entrepreneurs and startups expect from mentors? Well, let them guide you in “the development of a business in its entire process: from the conceptualization of the business model, through market analysis and even finding partners for the launch of the product,” indicates Roc Fages, partner at Lead To Change and startup mentor. such as Memora, MyABCKit, Gonnafit, Rehavitat and Hardrones.

And all this advice includes, above all, the creating contacts and in many cases attracting investors. “Entrepreneurs are looking for guidance, advice and contacts and introductions in the mentor’s network of potential investors, clients and partners,” says Angell, who has mentored startups such as The Social Coin and Plytix.

Without remuneration

And all this in exchange for nothing, since in most cases there is no remuneration for this work. Mentors are altruistic profiles, board and advisory volunteers, whose objective is to add value to startups. “I don’t charge anything, it’s part of personal enrichment, I allocate a part of my time to helping others, just like they did with me before,” he points out. Torras, who has served as a mentor for startups such as Marfeel, Treeveo or Cookbooth. In general, this altruism is part of the role.
«If I had to charge for it, I would completely lose the meaning of being a mentor, which is having the personal satisfaction of being able to help young people with advice and information that I would have liked to have had when I started entrepreneurship and had to make my way completely alone,” recalls Óscar Fuente Castrillejo, general director and founder of IEBS Business School and mentor at Seedrocket.

And the compensation or consideration for mentors in many cases is simply personal satisfaction: “I don’t do it for a specific reward. My reward is helping startups avoid the mistakes I’ve made and accelerate them on their path to success,” says Luke Angell, mentor at Startupbootcamp.

Others want to return the favor that was done to them, a tribute to the Law of Karma: «Many entrepreneurs and figures in the sector helped me in my beginnings, and I want help in the same way. Besides, I think that The mentor mentee relationship is very enriching for everyone.«comments Helena Torras, who also clarifies that «there are companies in which you end up dedicating a lot and you really influence, positively, their destiny, and you would like, even if it were, a symbolic percentage of the company, so that when they are successful, they form part of it.” Some mentors, after the incubation process, end up being part of the startup’s board of directors. But that is another story.

In this sense, for Sylvia Lorente van Berge Henegouwen, “when there is remuneration there is involvement with personal interests, so we can go from a mentor role to a management role. Both necessary, but perhaps not in the same person.

In any case, anyone who becomes involved as a mentor seeking reward or recognition “is doing it for the wrong reasons,” says Angell. So that mentors do not even aspire to social recognition as consideration. «When you offer your time you do it knowing that your role is to give without having to receive anything in return. If you have that attitude, there is nothing that is unpleasant,” says the Startupbootcamp mentor. «If I expected something in return then I might have been disappointed. “If it is true that I have ever felt that my work has not been valued to the extent of the impact it has had, but I don’t care, it is not what I am looking for,” he remarks. Oscar Fuentementor of startups such as Palbin, Reallylatebooking, Infantium, Chicfy,, Brandrain and Edukame.

And mentors, in general, do not need social recognition. «The best recognition is the success of your business projects and those you mentor. Being a mentor is an honor and a responsibility just as it is being a professor at the University. There is an important part of vocation,” says Lali Oms, who has served as a mentor for mostly industrial companies, which she indicates have fewer opportunities to enter mentoring circles although the results are faster.

The reward for these volunteers is when the mentors’ suggestions and advice lead to what they want. Luke Angell calls it a “Eureka moment”, which represents a great advance for the founders. «See how companies survive thanks to your contributions and performances or that when you give them ideas or suggestions and you think that they are not listening to you, then they tell you that they have applied it and that they have had a before and after, which makes the remuneration you get in return much more valuable than money,” highlights the general director and founder of IEBS Business School and mentor at Seedrocket.

Limits, a necessity

One of the most complicated parts is find out what kind of guidance, advice, start up support most needed. «Many startups have so many problems to solve that they have to know where to start, others think that they know what they need. But in reality it is something else, which is often difficult to communicate to the founders,” comments the business development director at Vittalia Internet.

Setting boundaries is also important. «It is not an unlimited open bar service but rather a high impact work for entrepreneurs. You have to set limits for yourself and also set them with the entrepreneur to avoid complicating your life and reaching situations of saturation. We are non dispensing mentors with unlimited capacity,” comments the CEO and founder of IEBS Business School. Along the same lines, Torras comments: «I establish the limits. How many companies can I mentor in each accelerator and how much time can I dedicate to them?

It is important to define priorities: «You have to structure the time you want to invest, define well at what points you want to add value so as not to end up involved in everything. and define the ways that allow optimization of interactions and time invested. Understand well where the company comes from and where it is going, without judging too quickly based on our personal experience,” explains Sylvia Lorente van Berge Henegouwen, who currently serves as a mentor for Zolertia.

Another aspect to Avoiding the confusion of a mentor with a business coach. «This last figure is for a specific period of time, and on a regular basis, with a company to help set up the business model. A mentor gets the job done more punctually, and with specific recommendations on specific topics,” says Roc Fages. Although sometimes there are also delicate situations “in which it is not only a business decision, but the mentee raises emotional issues,” Torras clarifies.

And, as Oms explains, sometimes the success of a company can be that two partners do not constantly fight. “And the mentor’s work has to be more about coaching than anything else to guarantee future success.”

To improve

Although the honesty and sincerity They are one of the main qualities that a mentor must have, the Lead To Change partner warns that in Spain the mentor is still expected to be condescending to those advised. «If you want to learn, you must say things exactly as you think.. If something is wrong, you must be very honest«.

As a suggestion, Angell says that it would help a lot if incubator and accelerator programs could better explain to startups how to use a mentor to reduce the time spent trying to figure out how to work together, and be able to use it more to solve specific problems.

Other proposals for improvement go through link two types of mentors for each project. «The business mentor and the senior manager mentor of an organization. Business mentors would have to be established businessmen with successes and failures behind them. If they only have successes they are a danger, if they only have failures they slow down innovation. Management mentors from large companies provide global visions“Your support, advice and relationship is vital for many projects,” explains the businesswoman and mentor. Lali Oms.

And perhaps the most basic: clarify the differences between mentor, consultant, advisory board, board of directors, intermediary, business coaches…and the thing is that currently, the word mentor includes many things, too many. «The mentor performs the functions of the figure of the reference person that we all haves: someone you can trust, who tells you few things, but clear, forceful, meaningful and focused on the solution,” he concludes. Roc Fages.

What does MSQRD offer us?

MSQRD It is a completely free application that has been successful for some time in the Apple iOS operating system for its mobile devices such as the iPhone and iPad.

Then, just by clicking on the camera button we can either take a still photo of the mask applied to our face, or best of all, record a video message in which we transform, thanks to the aforementioned masks, into the selected character.

Once the photograph has been taken or the video has been made with the mask of our choice, just by clicking on the end recording button we will be shown a preview screen of the video or photo, from which we will be able to share or save our creation easily with just Click on the arrow-shaped icon pointing up.

However, according to leaker Ice Universe, everything will change. The well-known leaker claims that, compared to the Snapdragon 8+Gen 1 processor, the new Snapdragon 8 generation 2 improves CPU performance by 10%, energy efficiency by 15%, GPU performance by 20% and even performance AI up to 10%.

But the most important thing is that Snapdragon 8 generation 2 It comes to solve the overheating problem registered in its predecessors. According to rumors, the new chip will at this point be more similar to the Snapdragon 835, which received excellent reviews in its day.

Apparently, the results have been quite satisfactory, since energy efficiency can be improved by at least 15%.

Remember that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor uses Samsung’s 5nm process, but the upgraded version, Snapdragon 8+Gen 1, now uses TSMC’s 4nm process. It seems that Qualcomm will use this TSMC 4nm process also in the new Snapdragon 8 generation 2 chip.

Immediately after Qualcomm’s announcement, the race for smartphone brands begins to see who first manufactures the smartphone equipped with the new processor.

For now, it seems that Xiaomi will win this race with the new Xiaomi 13 series that will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen chip and that could be launched in the Chinese market during the month of November.
