Post-recession, employees feel pressured to perform well.

Regular occupational problems such as wrist problems due to constant handling of the mouse, slip disc and eye fatigue are common now, but handling stress that arises owing to fear of losing job or to cope with the increasing competition, affects the employee's performance, eventually, taking a major toll on his health, doctors explain.

First thing in this context to discuss is the battery life of our mobile phones with new OS Marshamallow. Some Google reports reveals that there will be 3x better battery life with Marshamallow as compared to Lollipop. So we guess we will now face battery problems with this version.


Its Speed
This new test puts Nexus 6 running on Android Marshamallow and compares it against the boot up time of Lollipop on Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. A very new video gives a peek at the speed of the operating system when compared to Lollipop. So the Marshmallow would be very fast as compared to other previous versions.
Whenever a new operating system version is released, the first comparisons are always made against its predecessor.  Nexus devices are of course always the first few to receive the Android updates, but Galaxy S6 Edge won’t take too long to receive Android 6.0 Marshamallow as well.
