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.
There are many areas of marketing technology that are considered “hot” right now.And yet MarketsandMarkets forecasts that the global event management software market alone is expected to grow from $5.10 billion in 2014 to $7.78 billion by 2019.Despite all the event creation, promotion, attendee check-in, and management solutions available — both at the low end and within the enterprise — many companies still run their respective seminars and conferences exactly as they used to decades ago.In B2B circles, the days of stapling business cards to manually completed “lead sheets” are still with us.Even now, with smartphones and tablets as prevalent as they are, double-entry of attendees is rife, and sales reps have no clue when an “important person” walks into the conference hall.Today, Attend wants to change that for good with the release of a new mobile app that augments its existing event management platform.
Us defense secretary Jim Mattis warned on Friday the North Korean nuclear weapons use and insurance at the same time the United states support a firm in South Korea.any attack on the united states or our allies we will be destroyed, and any use of nuclear weapons against him in reaction, which will be effective and withering , Mattis said the South Korean ministry of defense visit at the end.Mattis's comments come amid concerns that North Korea may be preparing a new missile test, which, in turn, could be a challenging thing to Donald Trump's new government, told Reuters news agency.North Korea against regular threats naapuvaltioonsa South Korea, which is, in turn, the United states allies.North Korea conducted more than 20 test launch of a missile last year as well as two nuclear test despite UN opposition and sanctions.North Korea will continue missile launches, his nuclear weapons programme development, as well as threatening behavior and rhetoric , Mattis said.
unfortunately, it's not the sort of thing that you'll want to carry around with you.It's a small gadget that looks to be roughly the size of an iPhone 6 case.Not much has changed since the announcement back in January.The Pocket-VR viewer has a retail price of $70, which might seem a little pricey, when compared to the Google Cardboard.However, instead of being constructed from a paper material, you're getting a hard plastic shell that you can easily take with you anywhere.You can find the viewer available now in both iPhone 6/6s and Galaxy S7 flavors.
Fujitsu has launched a new global campaign in an effort to demonstrate how its products and services can help harness the power of data.Using the tagline Shaping tomorrow with you , the campaign features an online film showcasing different industries implementing Fujitsu technology.Interestingly, the film was shot live, in-camera and released without any post-production.To achieve this, the film s creators mcgarrybowen and Found Studio used 3D projection mapping and holographic technologies to transform a white set into a series of live-action scenarios.Jane Briers, creative director at mcgarrybowen London, said: "We had a real opportunity to make the medium of projections part of the message itself, and bring to life the theme of 'digital transformation' in a way that had never been attempted before.
The updated app was quietly pushed live yesterday, and Google has now officially confirmed that Android Pay is available for anyone in the U.K., assuming they have a compatible NFC-enabled device.Similar to Apple Pay, Android Pay lets users purchase goods in physical retail stores by associating their MasterCard or Visa card with their device and swiping their phone against a contactless terminal at the point of sale.It can also be used to pay for things within third-party apps, including those by JD Sports, Deliveroo, Zara, Kickstarter, Airbnb, and YPlan.Crucially, Android Pay can also be used on London s public transport network, including the Tube and buses.The Internet giant launched its Apple Pay competitor last May, but so far, the feature has only been available in the U.S. Google did confirm back in March, however, that Android Pay would be landing in the U.K. some time in the next few months.The company has now confirmed that it will be launching in Australia and Singapore soon, with more countries added to the mix in the coming months.So it sounds as though the U.K. is serving as the launchpad for a major global rollout across 2016.Google had previously confirmed that eight banks would be on board for launch — Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M Bank, MBNA, and Nationwide Building Society, though it did note that more would be added.Barclays was also slow to embrace Apple Pay, which has been available in the U.K. since last summer.
Netflix really wants to show you how fast or slow your Internet connection is, and to do so it has launched a new website at Fast.com that conveys the real-time speed of your connection to the Web — it s designed to give people greater insight and control of their Internet service.It looks like Netflix procured the Fast.com domain last month and, according to a filing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office USPTO , it s in the midst of trademarking the Fast logo.It works globally, on mobile Internet or domestic broadband, and it displays the speed of your connection, in megabits-per-second, at any given moment.The launch comes just a few weeks after Netflix introduced new cellular data controls to let users tweak the quality of their video streams, so that those on patchier connections can select lower-quality streams.Fast.com does seem like a random product on the surface, especially given the myriad of existing speed-test tools online, but Netflix wanted something of its own, that works in real-time, and which is devoid of any annoying distractions such as ads and other bells-and-whistles.Netflix s new speedtest tool actually links directly to Speedtest.net to allow you to compare the results and we can confirm they are accurate .We all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider,  said David Fullagar, vice president of content delivery architecture at Netflix, in a blog post.Using Netflix servers, fast.com works like other globally available tools including speedtest.net, and the results should be similar in most cases.
When it launches this summer, Allo will offer an incognito mode that switches on an end-to-end encryption system known as Signal, designed by the privacy-focused non-profit Open Whisper Systems.And in the wake of Apple s landmark fight with the FBI over the encrypted iPhone of San Bernadino killer Syed Rizwan Farook, the move represents another step in Silicon Valley s shift toward user-controlled encryption in defiance of law enforcement.Allo s incognito mode represents a far more limited approach to encryption than Whatsapp s, Apple s, Viber s, or even what it s offering with Duo: Unlike with those apps, you must purposefully turn on incognito mode to send encrypted Allo messages; the app doesn t hide all messages by default.But Google s launching its encrypted communication apps as new tools that may or may not catch on, rather than Whatsapp s far bolder move to turn on encryption for its existing, massive userbase.Gmail and Google Hangouts, meanwhile, still lack end-to-end encryption, leaving them open to government surveillance orders.Allo and Duo s new security features, in other words, are Google s baby steps towards a fully-encrypted future, not the sort of bold moves to elevate privacy above profit or politics that some of its competitors have already taken.
After a seven month wait Google has now brought Android Pay to the UK, meaning you can finally use your Android phone to pay for your coffee in the morning.You'll need to be with a participating bank though, with options limited to Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M Bank, MBNA and Nationwide Building Society for now.NatWest and Santander have confirmed to techradar support will come at a later date, while those with Barclays can use the bank's own contactless payment app instead.Earlier this year Google launched a public trial - in Silicon Valley, of course - for a system called Hands Free, which will allow you to make payments by just saying "pay with Google".In the meantime, get yourself set up on Android Pay by download the app from the Google Play Store.Just remember you will be using real life money before you get carried away with swiping on every reader in sight.
"We have an aggressive plan for new launches in the coming years," says CEO Michaela Holtz Breakit have previously written about säkerhetsappen Zeifie that allows the user to alert people nearby who also have the app. Through a connection to Facebook, choose the app out which people should be alerted to the scene, as friends or friends of friends. The idea got refreezes company behind the app, co-founder Michaela Holtz, when she began to self-defense, and heard how the women talked about that they should get panic. In total, the new issue 22.75 percent stake in the company. Round is open until 17 June or until it is fully subscribed, to assist in the new issue and valuation Zeifie Finnish investor Innovestor, which also goes in with a sum in the company. With Innovestor as partners and new shareholders, I look forward to a continued high pace, says Michaela Holtz said in a statement.

Netflix has unveiled a free tool for measuring Internet speed — no subscription needed.All you have to do is go to Fast.com, and the tool will measure your Internet speed at that particular moment, whether you re on mobile or broadband.We all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider, David Fullagar, Netflix s vice president of content delivery architecture, wrote in the post.When you re experiencing streaming issues, fast.com allows you to check the download speeds you re getting from your Internet service provider.Fast.com works like similar tools out there, and Netflix s site even provides a link so you can compare its results with speedtest.net.But Netflix points out that its tool has no ads.This rollout comes a couple of weeks after the company launched a way for its subscribers to control their data use when they watch Netflix.That move came in response to complaints over Netflix throttling video streams to mobile users.In addition, Netflix has an ISP Speed Index that measures average monthly speeds of actual Netflix streams during prime time hours.
Russian space agency Roscosmos has released an impressive rocketcam video shot from the Soyuz-2.1a which last month became the first mighty lifter to depart the country's new Vostochny cosmodrome.The edited highlights footage shows the rocket leaving the pad, the separation of two of its four liquid-fuelled boosters, then core stage separation as the third stage engine fires.The curved structure that's seen falling away about eight seconds later at around 1:16 is one of the aerodynamic panels which "connected the second and third stages", as Spaceflight Now helpfully explains.Finally, the Volga upper stage, with its satellite payload visible, is released into the wide black yonder.The Volga features a restartable hypergolic fuel motor, which in this case was later fired twice to place three satellites into their final orbits.It's just about visible in the ground-based footage of the Vostochny launch at 5:28 , but here's a beautiful example captured during the lofting of Europe's Sentinel-1A satellite in April 2014 fast forward to 2:18 :Vostochny cosmodrome is still a work in progress, but the facility will ultimately host 10 launches a year, reducing Russian reliance on Baikonur in Kazakhstan.
You can now use your Android smartphone to pay for items in UK shops.Google announced the British roll-out of its wireless payments service Android Pay on Tuesday.Android users who have accounts with compatible banks will be able to tap their smartphones at NFC payment terminals to pay — much like you can already do with contactless debit and credit cards.It also works for payments within apps.Google is almost a year behind Apple on this one: Apple Pay, available on iPhones, launched in the UK back in July 2015.Business Insider tried Android Pay out at a press event earlier this week.You're held back only by your bank balance.Shops don't need to do anything to take an Android Pay payment — as long as it has an NFC payment terminal, which are pretty ubiquitous across the UK, the payment method will work.Banks that support Android Pay include Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M Bank, MBNA, and Nationwide Building Society.Notably absent from the list is Barclays — which is no surprise.The bank also took an age to get on board with Apple Pay, finally starting support for the service in April 2016, almost a year after its launch.Your phone needs to be running Android 4.4 KitKat and must have an NFC chip for the tech to work.Google director Pali Bhat told Business Insider that he didn't know how many smartphones in the UK are compatible — but that seven out of 10 Android phones globally are.The launch of Android Pay has been a pretty poorly kept secret.Halifax and HSBC both accidentally set their setup website pages live early, and sandwich chain Pret put up signs on its payment terminals saying customers could pay with Android Pay.NOW WATCH: 10 WhatsApp tricks only power users know aboutLoading video...
Android Pay can be used at any wireless payment point so if it supports your contactless card or Apple Pay then you re good to go with Android Pay.Google s new contactless payment service joins an increasing number of apps and services including Samsung Pay and PayPal which are trying to encourage people to move away from using their conventional bank cards as a means of paying.Recently released Android smartphones should come with Android Pay pre-installed but if you think you re missing out you can always head over to the Google Play Store and download the app separately from there.While many of the big players are in there it s hard not to notice the glaring omission that is Barclays.If you have multiple Google Accounts in Android Pay: At the top left of the app, touch your name, then choose the account you want to add a card to.While both are equally secure not all Android phones have this hardware advantage that Apple s products do so Google had to find an alternative solution.
The factory images should arrive shortly for the supported devices: Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus 9 LTE, Nexus Player, General Mobile 4G, and Pixel C.Google launched the first Android N developer preview in March and the second preview in April.In past years, Google has unveiled the next Android version and released the accompanying developer preview at its I/O developer conference, but with Android N, the company is starting much earlier — we re at I/O 2016 and the company is already on the third preview.There are two big features the Android team is highlighting in the third preview: seamless updates like in Chrome OS!The third preview naturally includes everything that inside the first two previews, but these features are being shared for the first time today.Google says that seamless updates are inspired by how Chromebooks apply updates.The next time you restart your Android phone or tablet, it will boot up using the updated system image.Seamless updates are a huge addition that will have massive implications on the Android ecosystem years down the road.Developers will be happy to know that VR mode brings performance enhancements, including single buffer rendering and access to an exclusive CPU core.VR mode lets apps take advantage of smooth head-tracking, stereo notifications, and low latency graphics.Of course, we knew that was the case thanks to Google Cardboard s success, but now the company is baking support and improvements right into its mobile operating system.As you might expect, the new preview also includes a few API changes check out the diff reports and a slew of bug fixes.
Both apps will be available later this summer.It s encrypted, and based on your phone number.Duo works wherever you are, Kay said, and it proactively monitors network quality several times a second and switches seamlessly between Wi-Fi and cellular.Duo also has an interesting and potentially controversial feature: Knock Knock, which shows you a live video stream of the caller before the connection is actually initiated.Not only can you see who s calling, but why they re calling, and what they re up to: A smile, a beach, a newborn baby, Kay said.Here s a closer look at the experience:What does this mean for Google Hangouts, Google s existing video app?

At its I/O 2016 developer conference, Google today launched Android Studio 2.2 preview, the latest version of its integrated development environment IDE .You can download the new version for Windows, Mac, and Linux now directly from the Canary page.If you are already using Android Studio, you can check for Canary updates in the navigation menu Help Check for Update on Windows/Linux and Android Studio Check for Updates on OS X .Google released Android Studio 2.1 just three weeks ago, so this preview is coming very soon out of the pipe.And yet Stephanie Cuthbertson, Google product manager for Android, showed a long list of features that 2.2 brings to the table:On stage, Cuthbertson also shared that 94 percent of the top 125 apps and games in Google Play now use Android Studio.Not bad for an IDE that only launched back in December 2014.
The platform, which was first unveiled in May 2015 and has been operational in the US since last September, allows phones running Google's Android software to make contactless payments through shop terminals, on London s TfL networks and for in-app purchases.For amounts higher than £30, the owner must enter their security code, fingerprint or lock pattern.The launch is far from unexpected, after marketing material confirming Pret A Manger now accepted Android Pay appeared in the popular fast food chain s shops last week.Comparatively, Android Pay and Samsung Pay trail behind with around five million monthly users each, data from Bloomberg found.While Samsung Pay is limited to compatible Samsung devices, around 80 per cent of the world s smartphones run Android, compared to around 17 per cent for Apple s iOS system.In the UK, the Android/iOS split is around 59 per cent to 35 per cent, according to Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.
