Lenovo has announced a wide range of new tablets and hybrid hardware, all running either Android or Windows 8.1.Follow the links below for a detailed overview of Lenovo’s latest device announcements, all of which fall into its Yoga range of versatile hardware.The standout feature of Lenovo’s Yoga Ultrabooks has always been the clever hinge, which allows the screen to be folded over to create a tent-like stand, rotated around to keep the keyboard out of the way, or laid flat for a tablet-like experience.For the Yoga 3 Pro, Lenovo has redesigned the hinge, likening it to a metal watch band, and building it from 800 pieces of steel and aluminum.Storage is managed by a 256GB SSD, plus there is a 4-in-1 card reader on the 12.8mm chassis.It’s joined by two USB 3.0 sockets, and a Micro HDMI port.
It can dance, walk, play football and do kung-fu – but only when commanded via its companion app.UBTech Alpha 1 Pro – Design and FeaturesThe Alpha 1 Pro comes fully assembled and with minimal accessories in the box – just a mains charger and a Mini USB cable.Or perhaps the scheming love-child of Honda Asimo.Alpha s probably about as big as you re expecting – certainly as I was expecting.There s an awful lot of white plastic here, broken up only by the black plastic and silver metal of those 16 servos at all the joints.

It s been a while since we last heard from Alcatel and TCL but the brand are still in business and today have just announced news of a new all metal phone.To the best of our knowledge this is the first all metal phone from Alcatel in fact we don t remember an Alcatel/TCL with even a metal chassis .The new model will be called the Flash Plus 2 and will feature a 5.5-inch FHD OGS display, 3000mAh battery and fast charging technology.Mediatek provide a Helio P10 chipset, and the phone will come in either 2GB 16GB or 3GB 32GB memory options, with both models having support for up to 128GB SD cards.Like many other new smartphones the Alcatel Flash Plus 2 has a fingerprint scanner, this time in a physical button on the chin of the phone.There is also a 5 mega-pixel front camera and 13 mega-pixel rear with dual LED flash.Pricing is actually very good with the phone costing from $160 for the basic version rising to only $190 for the 3GB RAM model.Best of all the Alcatel Flash Plus 2 will officially go on sale in the Philippines, Malaysia, Monaco and Thailand to start with other markets coming soon.
Britney Spears is following Katy Perry into the mobile games world Photograph: Denise Truscello/Associated PressIn 2015, global music sales were $15bn £10.3bn .Perry s game was a high-profile flop, with Glu saying publicly that the lack of actual music made it less appealing to fans.From the lyrics that match your chosen genres for songs when recording my trap-metal single Becky With the Good Hair my character was belting out lines like Cloven hooves trod the land to preposterous EDM DJ Skwirl-X remixing my Brexit Music For a Film track with a synth solo of his own in the middle , there are genuinely laugh-out-loud snippets.There s the odd jarring moment too.At one point, my male character is given a choice of either slapping or kissing my female rival mid-argument, with no alternative options.The fact that you can name your character s songs – which are then shared with the world – could give Glu some moderation headaches too.
Metal that is not burned at the cremation may in the future be made alive. Metal parts remaining after cremation of the dead will now become part of the cycle. Today, Parliament is expected to decide on the metal that is not burned at the cremation and separated from the ash to be recycled. With the current management excavated more than 20 tons of scrap metal, including prostheses and kistbeslag, the bottom of the cemeteries. It can affect human health and the environment in a harmful way, and therefore the government wants to make it possible to recover metal objects that are not burned at the cremation. Under the proposal, any surplus krematorieägaren get from recycling go to the Swedish Inheritance Fund.
In combination with the latter are a pair of clasps on either side to make the Bermuda portable, although it runs off mains power only, from a little wall-wart transformer.Related: Rega Planar 3 2016 reviewOut of the box, the four leg holes underneath are plugged with plastic bungs, so the Crosley Bermuda can be sat on a table or sideboard, but there are four rather nice, ebonised-wood legs supplied that screw into the holes and make the Bermuda freestanding.The tonearm has none of the sweeping grace of the old Dansette units – it s just a metal tube with a cheap-looking plastic headshell and a little metal counterweight.Ouch.Just don t expect anything approaching high fidelity – the sonics are more akin to a mid-priced Bluetooth speaker than an entry-level micro hi-fi.As with the Cruiser II, I feel like Crosley should invest more in the turntable components and hike up the price a little.
The 2in1 tablet Chuwi Hi12 is one of the best options among the Cherry Trail tablets especially thanks to the excellent 2160 1440 pixel resolution screen and the useful, but rare 3:2 aspect ratio.But until today one of the lacking features has been the stylus support, well not anymore because the Chuwi HiPen H1 just launched in order to fix that.Chuwi HiPen H1 is an active stylus designed specifically for the use with the Hi12 tablet and on paper it looks really good.Featuring 256 pressure levels software adjusted even 512 levels , aluminum metal body with 1.2mm/1.6mm writing tips, under 2mm precision limit, 30-degree writing angle support and palm supression control technology just does the trick.The pen has two buttons capable of mimicking the mouse buttons and being powered by the dry AAAA battery it can be used for up to 250 hours.The auto sleep function helps to preserve some power so the battery exchange won t be a common occurence.Chuwi HiPen H1 is a pretty handy addition to the Hi12 tablet accessory family and with the official retail price of $29.99 it s also nothing crazy expensive and out of the reach.So for those looking to use the great 12-inch tablet screen fully with some active stylus then this is the way to go.You can get it for example here for even a dollar cheaper.
Google Home is still in the early stages of development but here s everything we know at this hour.Users will be able to customize the base through a variety of different colors of either fabric or metal.Its three primary tasks are to provide music and entertainment throughout a home, manage everyday tasks on your behalf and make the power of Google search accessible via voice commands through what s called the Google assistant.As such, you ll be able to control your lights, thermostats, switches and more simply by using voice commands.Again, basic tasks like checking the weather or seeking out facts on Wikipedia will be possible but you ll also be able to ask complex tasks like how much fat is in an avocado or the jersey number of your favorite athlete.You can even ask follow-up questions in which Google will understand the context and return the correct answer.

The Cubot Cheetah is the first fruit of the cooperation between the Cubot and Cheetah Mobile companies and i m sure many of you have installed some app from this chinese software leviathan, because they claim to have over 600 million of non-chinese users.Looking at the official Cheetah Mobile website the numbers are pretty staggering, 635 million of mobile network users and total worldwide users of some of their products in billions.So it s only quite logical the first reason the Cubot Cheetahphone being interesting is the support of huge company behind it and 10 GB of free cloud space coming with it.According to Cubot statement the second reason is great full metal build of the phone with polished GPS equaling the best navigations.Third reason would be the Samsung sensor used for the 13 MPix rear camera with PDAF so the photos should be better and without noise even in low light conditions.Fourth reason in favor of the Cheetah is built-in gyroscope for the 3D gamers on the phone and the fifth the hardware specs of the phone meaning octa-core MT6753 processor paired with 3 GB RAM, 32 GB of storage and 5.5-inch FullHD resolution display.The final decision is of course up to the potential customers and the official retail price of $199.99 could be little too high no matter the benefits, but as far as we know Cubot is planning some sale event for the Cheetah with lowering it to $149.99 which is much easier to stomach.We will keep you informed once we know more.
Musk, co-founder of SpaceX, first published his sketches for the Hyperloop in August 2013.On 11 May, in the Nevada desert, an independent company named Hyperloop One held the first public demonstration of its technology.A metal sled shot along a 900-metre open-air track in 1.1 seconds – although without any of the complexities of low-pressure tubes that a real system would need.On Friday, a student team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology became the first to show off their pod, at an event in Cambridge, Massachusetts.The MIT designs, which rely on magnetic levitation, won an interim prize from the competition in January.The Hyperloop is once a concept, now very much in development , says MIT team captain Philippe Kirschen.
A new smartphone has launched called the Alcatel Flash Plus 2 and the smartphone is aiming at the mid-range shopper wanting high-end design for their money.What remains unchanged is that we will consistently follow the mission of Flash at its birth and stay connected with the young Internet consumers who enjoy sharing and pursue quality.We will get to know their specific needs through continuous interaction to create high quality smart hardware that is fun and enjoyable, offering the users a lifestyle of seeking our true selves, " said Albert Wong, General Manager, Flash 3C Limited.That means scanning the pointer finger can launch an app different from scanning the thumb or pinky.Sound uses an AKM4375 audio decoding chip with an IRD digital sound filter and a NXP980 power amplification chip to make 3.6W of power for the speakers.The screen is a 5.5-inch FHD unit and the main processor is a Helio P10.
Meet James Young, a 25-year-old gamer who lost an arm and a leg in a DLR accident three years ago.In a scarcely believable twist of fate, gaming giant Konami last year was on the lookout for an amputee it could turn into Snake, the bionic-armed, bad-as-fuck lead character from Metal Gear Solid V.James is their man.BBC Three s new two-part documentary Bodyhack: Metal Gear Man follows James as he gains an incredibly-advanced prosthetic limb and adjusts to life as a part-human, part-robotic being.Though his new arm can be customised with all manner of gadgets, including drones, lasers and a bionic hand, it isn't completely under James' control.Bodyhack: Metal Gear Man is now available to watch through the channel s website, YouTube page and iPlayer, though we've embedded the first part above.Prepare for nothing you ve ever seen before.
The huge cache of personal data comes from a hack of the website four years ago that was previously thought to have affected only a few million accounts.LinkedIn said it was trying to assess which accounts had been affected and invalidate their passwords to prevent hackers accessing users accounts.Although encrypted, the set of passwords had not been cryptographically-sealed with an additional security measure known as a salt , making more common passwords relatively easy to decode.The data release actually contains 167 million account details including email addresses, although only 117 million passwords are included.It said that passwords are now salted, meaning in the event of any future breach, they would be less difficult to crack.One ultra-secure one won't be any good if someone finds itWhile combining upper and lower case passwords with numbers to alter a memorable word - M4raD0na - is often advised, these are more easily cracked than you might thinkGood advice is to make a memorable, unusal sentence: "I am a 7-foot tall metal giant" is better than "My name is John", and use the first letter of each word with punctuation: "Iaa7-ftmg"Alternatively, you can use a password manager such as 1Password, which can generate secure passwords and store them onlineThe best way to protect yourself is to use two-factor authentication, which will send a text with a code or use an app to verify your log-inIf your LinkedIn password has not been changed since 2012, now is probably a good time, and the same goes for any other websites which you use the same password for.
1955 Porsche 550 SpyderMonterey Car Week is one of the most prestigious gatherings on the motoring calendar, showcasing the best of automotive engineering and design traced through the ages.Auto shows, historic races, and auctions are all part of the week s agenda, yet apart from the Councours D Elegance, The Quail is the most exciting event.2016 Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus; James M. Glickenhaus – New YorkScuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 003CS was first shown at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show.The weekend after the race, it was driven from Turin to Como, Italy, and displayed at Villa d Este.1934 Packard Chassis Coachbuilt Body; James Hetfield – CaliforniaIt all began with a stack of sheet aluminum and an idea to inject some American custom car swagger into classic coach-building design ideology.It s a delicate balance with undeniable rhythm and flow, masterfully executed by some of the most gifted hands in metal shaping.
Most 3D printers print layers over and over again until a full object takes shape.The machine uses a high-intensity laser that heats tiny silver nanoparticles to form metallic shapes.The 3D-printing technique was developed by a team of Harvard researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and the Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.The key to unlocking this new approach to printing metal was balancing the intensity of the laser and its proximity to the nozzle.This kind of delicate metal printing is particularly useful because of its freeform capabilities.The filament can be shaped into virtually any type of metal structure, which researchers expect will be useful in developing wearables, sensors, and even circuitry parts.
News today that Nokia will license its name for the next ten years to a new line of phones and tablets, only running Google's platform rather than Windows 10, seemed initially to be the perfect opener to Google I/O 2016, but it also raises one big question: does anybody still care about a Nokia device?Today's licensing deal isn't the first such move by Nokia - the company lent its branding and some design oversight to an Android tablet a couple of years ago, though it never officially reached western markets, and dabbled in Android phones with the short-lived Nokia X - but it is the most significant.As well as provisionally securing the Nokia brand from Microsoft to use on more basic phones, HMD global also has acquired "certain related design rights" from the Windows maker; it's too soon to say whether that means the distinctive polycarbonate and metal design we'd grown familiar with from Lumia will be returning, but that's likely to be the hope among Nokia fans.More importantly, the Android OEM space has condensed down: Samsung still succeeds, as much by its marketing budget as its phones, but new names like Huawei have - with the heft of Google and the Nexus project behind them - been propelled into the market with an alluring combination of affordability and high-end specifications.The Chinese phone-maker is notable not only for the quality and low price of its devices, but the huge fanbase it has cultivated along the way.In a best-case scenario, that could look like the sleekest Lumia, pack the photographic abilities of a PureView, and undercut the Nexus 6P on shelves.
It starts strongly, though: very few Windows 10 PCs can claim to be as sleek as Dell's latest effort.The narrow main section shows off slick bezelled edges, the metal-coated base offers impressive versatility, and a decent selection of internal components point to a PC that's highly capable.The stand is double-hinged, which means it squats down with a reassuring motion and enables the screen to be used in a horizontal position.The iMac lacks dedicated display outputs and it has only four USB connectors, although it does include two highly-desirable Thunderbolt ports that video creatives won't want to be without.The aerial included is a single-band 2.4GHz model that connects only to the 802.11bgn standards; Apple kits its desktops out with dual-band 802.11ac hardware.The Dell s viewing angles are fine and the panel s uniformity levels are consistent, with no big deviations or obvious backlight bleed.
