Taylor Swift has cleaned up at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

The singer picked up eight awards including top artist, top female artist and top album for 1989.

There was also a section of the ceremony dedicated to the premiere of her video for her latest single Bad Blood.

But they did let some other people win and, obviously, Kanye was on hand to add his token controversial moment to proceedings.

One Direction

He may have become accustomed to dominating awards shows, but Sam Smith was relegated to a mere three Billboard awards: top male, top new artist and top radio songs artist.

Having just had an operation on his vocal cords, the singer was forced to make an acceptance speech using cue cards via video message.

Jennifer Lopez

He thanked his fans and asked Taylor Swift to bet $100 on black at a casino.

One Direction were also among the winners, taking home top touring artist and top duo/group.

Zendaya, Hailee Steinfeld, Taylor Swift, Lily Aldridge and Martha Hunt

The four-piece dedicated their first award to “our brother Zayn” but Liam was cut off before he could finish their second speech – leading to #OhNoLiam to start trending.

John Legend

The group was also on hand to give John Legend his top radio song award for All Of Me.

For the record, Taylor’s other awards were: Billboard chart achievement, Billboard top 200 artist, Billboard top 100 artist, top digital songs artist and top streaming song (video) for Blank Space.

Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift

Kanye got booed

The boos had already started before Mr West had started his set – with jeers aimed at his sister-in-laws Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

But several accounts from inside the arena suggest they continued as the rapper closed the ceremony with All Day and Black Skinhead, which were both heavily censored for viewers watching on TV.

This is the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro!

On Detroit’s Belle Isle Park, Chevy finally pulled the wraps off its next-generation Camaro — a hotly anticipated upgrade that GM has been teasing bit by bit over the past several weeks. It’ll go head-to-head against the recently revamped Ford Mustang when it hits dealers in the coming months.

In general, Chevy has hewn closely to the look and feel of the outgoing model, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing: the musclebound lines of the car have aged well over the past several years.

There will be six — yes, six — engines offered, ranging from a 455-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 all the way down to a 2.0-liter turbocharged four. An equally big story might be the new interior — unlike the exterior, the cockpit looks all-new, featuring something Chevy is calling “Interior Spectrum Lighting” that shines a light pipe in any of 24 selectable colors across the dashboard. (It looks awesome.)

There’s even a “show mode” that will randomly cycle through all the colors, just for effect.

There’s a reason that GM took to Belle Isle for this particular unveiling: besides the fact that GM headquarters can be seen a mile away on the Detroit skyline, Belle Isle is hosting a Grand Prix in two weeks’ time where IndyCar drivers will negotiate the twists and turns of the island’s road course.

This weekend, Chevy is using that same course to demonstrate the new Camaro’s chops on the track.

Two Guys With Jetpacks Fly Over Dubai In Epic Video!

jetpack-flight-yves-rossy-vince-reffet-jetman-dubai-3

Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet, the two innovators behind the Jetman Dubai jetpack athlete team, have released an incredible video of their synchronized jetpack flight high above Dubai and the surrounding desert.

jetpack-flight-yves-rossy-vince-reffet-jetman-dubai-1

Rossy, a fearless professional pilot from Switzerland, is a leading innovator in the field of propelled human flight, having created his own custom jetpack after years of experimentation and customization. This flight represents the experience that he and his protege, Reffet, have gathered during years of practice.

The jetpack Rossy designed is the closest that mankind has comes to the jetpacks that we’ve all seen in sci-fi media like The Rocketeer. They need the assistance of another aircraft to take flight, but can gain altitude and sustain flight for anywhere from 6 to 13 minutes at speeds between 180 and 300 km/h.

WhatsApp Call consumes a lot of MB, So which voice calling app uses the least data per minute?

Apps-ban-in-Sindh

Free voice call apps, which use data to place calls, can offer a cheaper way to keep in contact with friends abroad and come to the rescue when you’ve used up your monthly minute quota. However, with multi-gigabyte data plans still often coming at a premium price, the busiest chatters out there could soon eat into their monthly allowance using voice over data calls.

The results

We can instantly spot a huge difference between the leanest and the heaviest data consuming applications. Interestingly, many of the most well-known apps, such as Hangouts, Skype and WhatsApp, consume by far the most data, while KakaoTalk, Nimbuzz and Line all consume comparatively smaller amounts of data. Facebook Messenger also makes a bit of a surprise appearance as one of the most data efficient ways of placing a voice call.

Perhaps a little worryingly for Skype users, the app consumes over 2.7 times the amount of data per minute than the most economical apps. WhatsApp consumers 2.3 times the data of KakaoTalk, while Hangounts and Tango consume around twice the data each minute. Over the course of an hour’s worth of calls, the difference between Skype and KakaoTalk works out to around 33.4MB, which might be a point worth considering if you’re on a more limited data plan and like to talk.

Magic Jack and Viber both consume a little more data than others, but are still much economical choices than the more established apps. These may be the best choice if you’re looking for a balance between call quality and data usage.

Screenshot 2015-05-13 at 9.29.37 PM

To be fair to the big brands, we do know that Skype implements a rather intelligent codec that is capable of various sample and bit rates. We went back to see if switching down to a 3G network, with more limited bandwidth, would make any difference to the data consumed, but the results came back well within the margin for error. We can conclude that a 3G connection is more than good enough for the best voice call quality that Skype and the other apps have to offer on Android, so you’ll probably always find that these apps consume around this amount of data, regardless of a 3G, 4G or WiFi connection type.

While the big companies may be able to spend some cash on extra bandwidth and servers, Kakao, Nimbuzz and Line most likely make use of a lower quality communication to save on expensive server bandwidth, which has the added benefit of saving us data usage too.
