Lilium unveils five-seater air taxi prototype after a successful maiden flight for its latest jet

Lilium which is basically a startup which is based on Munich and is known for developing air taxi services. They have finally unveiled their five seated prototype. They have also announced that the companies maiden flight was successfully completed in the month of May. This is not the first time that Lilium Jet which is a company making all-electric jets have taken off and landed with the help of all the extensive ground testing. Lilium has finally ended up releasing a video with the two seated version of the flight two years ago.

The prototype which has been made is a full scale and all the 36 jet engines were responsible for the takeoff and landing of the plane. The company has claimed that the cruise flight is extremely remarkable and works well. In a call, the Chief executing officer of the company Daniel Wiegand the test flights was a little behind the schedule but this will definitely be going to change the urban mobility problem. The jet performed perfectly according to the company which helped Lilium team get the much-needed validation.

Since the design is not like the aircraft but still it can hold five passengers is impressive. The technology which the company is using is very impressive and the fully vertical mobility is what makes it so much interesting. This transport is going to make things easy for everyone and the transportation cost will also become very less.

The company has claimed that the speed of the air taxi is 300 km/hr. The company is also claiming that the air taxi that they have designed is capable of completing longer trips which makes it very promising in the future. It is also calculated that the flight will require about 10 percent of the 2000 horsepower which is maximum for the cruise flight.

Lilium said:

 “This efficiency, which is comparable to the energy usage of an electric car over the same distance, means the aircraft would not just be capable of connecting suburbs to city centers and airports to main train stations, but would also deliver affordable high-speed connections across entire regions”

The first flight was on the 4th of May 2019 at 8:03 local time Munich, Germany. According to the Chief executing officer, the Lilium Jets were all remotely controlled. It has also been confirmed that the flights were given all kinds of clearance before they were tested. The flights were also certified with the aircraft safety standards. The next move for the country will be trying to develop a flight with horizontal take off.

It has also been revealed that the company desires to be fully functional by the year 2025. The trial services for the company will start much before that. The company is now backed by Tencent; LGT which is an international private banking and management group; Atomico and many more including co-founder of Skype and Twitter.

Lyrics On Google’s Results Page Will Appear With It Source Page

Google was recently accused by Genius for copying their lyrics. Since this is a serious accusation, Google is definitely not sitting idle. In response to this, Google has decided to soon attribute the third-parties providing lyrics. This will let you know where the lyrics have come from. Not just that, but it will also direct any complaints directly to the third-party providers instead of Google.

In their defense, Google has also stated that they do not crawl or scrape sites to find lyrics. Instead, they license the lyrics from outsiders. The lyrics are also automatically updated as soon as any corrections or changes are made to it.

One of the main suppliers of lyrics to Google, LyricFind has claimed that they have not copied any lyrics from Genius. The company even argued that the exact lyrics are available in other sites as well. They claimed that they have taken the lyrics from another company that was using Genius lyrics without the company’s permission.

However, this hasn’t solved or calmed the issue at Genius’ office. But this definitely shows the messiness involved in lyrics search. There are several companies that provide lyrics and it is actually not possible to find out who’s’ honest and who’s not.

Picture-In-Picture Mode Tested By Apple TV Beta

The upcoming beta version of Apple tvOS 13 is expected to come with a surprise. The company is planning to introduce its newest feature picture-in-picture mode. This will allow users to browse while watching a video at the same time. The release of the feature was not announced by the company at the time of WWDC keynote that took place earlier this month.

The PnP feature is not going to allow you to stream or watch video on top of another video. Instead, it will shrink a screen to a small box while you watch the main screen in the background. You can thus, navigate the whole operating system without pausing or stopping your show. With the help of on-screen controls, you will be able to easily switch from the video thumbnail to the rest of the screen. You can even move the thumbnail to different corners or even close it entirely. The release of the PnP feature on Apple TV is a mark of expansion. It was first introduced in ios 9 which was then launched as a multi-tasking feature for iPad.

Other than the PnP mode, tvOA 13 will also be made compatible with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers. Along with that, you will also be able to read lyrics on the screen while you listen to your favorite track. In addition, it will also provide multi-user support for each person’s profile.

Google accused by Genius for copying its lyrics data

Most often we rely on Google lyric’s results instead of using individual lyrics sites. If you think you are the only one doing that you are wrong. Genius has recently accused Google of copying its lyrics data. Not just that, but the company has also claimed that Google has hurt its website traffic. As stated by Genius, the evidence can be found in the apostrophes. The apostrophes are deliberately alternated between curved and straight lines to form a watermark. The watermark represents ‘red-handed’ in Morse code. Genius has found over 100s of Google’s lyrics that include the exact apostrophes.

Google, however, has clearly denied any such activity as stated to the Wall Street Journal. Google is one of those companies that takes copyright issues very seriously. As stated by LyricFind to the Wall Street Journal that their staff does not source lyrics from Genius. Both the companies Google and LyricFind have clearly denied any matches with the lyrics of Genius.

No formal actions are taken yet but Genius has still claimed that Google is violating both its terms or service and antitrust law. The company claims that they have alerted Google in 2007. If Genius tries to file a case, it may not get much success in it as they don’t own the lyrics. They are only allowed to display them on their platform.

Google in its statement to Engadget:

 “The lyrics displayed in the information boxes and in knowledge panels on Google search are licensed from a variety of sources and are not scraped from sites of the web. We take data quality and creator rights very seriously and hold our licensing partners accountable to the terms of our agreement. We’re investigating this issue with our data partners and if we find that partners are not upholding good practices we will end our agreements.”
