Seems like Cubot is really branching out with the scope of their production and now ventures even into the smart wearable land.The first step into it is pioneered by the Cubot V1 smartband, which will offer a display for showing the time and the values gathered from the pedometer, calory counter and other sensors, just like the Xiaomi MiBand 2.The company claims about 30 days of a possible standby time.The new Cubot smartband is also equipped with the MMA8652 accelerometer for precise movement tracking.The band is made in cooperation with the german company Bayer and should be hypo-allergenic, permeable and knowing the Bayer ecology standpoint it s also surely made properly with that in mind.Metal clasp will guarantee firm securing around the wrist so the smartband can sustain even some extreme sport activity.Cubot V1 will also be waterproof and dustproof and the charging is done through universal micro-USB port.You can check how Cubot V1 looks and how it functions either in the following video or also here.

SaultFor centuries, astronomers have been enchanted by the planet Jupiter, that roiling sea of clouds punctuated by a glowering red eye.Using the Very Large Array in New Mexico, a team led by the University of California, Berkeley, has produced a map of Jupiter s atmosphere down to 100 km 60 miles depth, revealing the gas giant s noxious, ammonia-rich clouds and atmospheric circulation patterns in unprecedented detail.But it s also a mere taste of what s to come later this summer, when NASA s Juno Mission begins probing into the entirely unexplored region at Jupiter s core.Alternating ammonia hotspots and deserts helps explain why, when NASA s Galileo probe made its suicide plunge into Jupiter s atmosphere in 1995, it recorded nitrogen levels much higher than planetary scientists expected.Whatever processes caused Jupiter to be enriched in heavier elements may have laid the groundwork for the formation of Earth, Venus, and Mars.But we can t be certain until we have a better idea of what s really cooking inside our friendly neighborhood gas giant s core.
When it comes to the future of television 4K might be stealing a lot of the limelight, but it might be High Dynamic Range HDR that brings the big leap in image quality we've been waiting for.HDR creates a wider gamut of colors, allowing for a more vivid imageThe result is an image with darker blacks and lighter whites, leading to more detail in the overall image.Whereas on a standard display everything below a certain brightness is the same shade of black, an HDR display's range goes further, allowing you to tell the difference between something that's really really dark, and something that's just dark.4K is the biggest trend in viewing hardware today, and for good reason – it delivers four times the normal amount of pixels than 1080p, presenting finer detail and better textures.HDR might have the potential to make TV shows and movies look amazing, but this potential doesn't mean a thing unless production companies actually start filming and producing content in HDR.The company has been looking past 4K for some time now, and recognizes HDR as the next development in viewing potential.
In our glowing review, we said of the game: "Intelligent, fresh and endlessly enjoyable, Doom is more than a tribute to its beloved progenitor.Blaze's iconic yellow helmet can be found inside a hidden cave while playing the 6th mission "Kadingir Sanctum."It is also a reference to an earlier Easter egg in Doom 2, in which four sprites of the little guy were found hanging from a ceiling at the end of level 32.Doom 3's Soul Cube weaponDoom 3's Soul Cube in the latest Doom BethesdaIn Doom 3, the powerful Soul Cube, powered by killing enemies and absorbing their souls, was the only weapon capable of destroying "Hell's mightiest warrior" – the Cyberdemon.To trigger these Easter eggs, players need to find a hidden lever that, once activated, will play a jingle and open a secret door leading to a section from the classic Doom and its sequel.However, jumping onto the ledge will lead you inside a hidden tunnel where you will find a secret, grim birthday party, complete with a skeleton wearing a party hat, a "Happy Birthday" balloon and a cake beside him.
In this photo released by the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, the remains of tiger cubs and a bear are laid out at the "Tiger Temple" in Saiyok district in Kanchanaburi province, west of Bangkok, Thailand, Wednesday, June 1, 2016.A Thai national parks official says authorities have found 40 dead tiger cubs in a freezer at a Buddhist temple that operated as an admission-charging zoo.The cubs were found in a freezer where the temple staff kept food, said Anusorn Noochdumrong, an official from the Department of National Parks who has been overseeing the transfer of the temple's 137 tigers to shelters.The temple's Facebook page said in March that the temple's former vet had decided in 2010 to stop cremating cubs that died soon after birth.Calls to the temple's office were not answered.The temple, a popular tourist attraction, has been criticized by animal rights activists because of allegations it is not properly set up to care for the animals and flouted regulations restricting the trade of tigers.
The smartphone is blue and red with the club insignia in 18k gold plate.That means it has a 5.5-inch FHD display, 2GHz MediaTek Helio P10 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 13MP camera, and 16MP front camera."The F1 Plus is all about snappiness, style and speed, so there's no better partner for it than the phenomenal FC Barcelona.We're proud to bring users one of our most eye-catching devices ever, while paying tribute to the world's greatest football club," said Sky Li, VP of Oppo and Managing Director of International Mobile Business.Oppo also ships the special edition smartphone in a case that has laser printed signatures of five of the players from the team on the inside.It's a shame to cover the beautiful blue color with the case, but I guess that is better than dropping your fancy smartphone and breaking it.
Now, fresh warnings have been voiced by Kelli Burns, a communications professor at the University of South Florida, who teamed up with US-based news organisation NBC to investigate whether the Facebook mobile application is listening to users with the intent of serving up tailored advertising.In one experiment, Burns turned on the microphone feature and discussed a desire to go on a safari holiday.Less than a minute later, according to NBC, one of the most prominent ad-based posts on her Facebook feed was centred on a safari trip.Despite the professor remaining sceptical that Facebook is constantly listening to users, she said it is becoming increasingly concerning how much personal data the platform can access."If you choose to turn on this feature, we'll only use your microphone to identify the things you're listening to or watching based on the music and TV matches we're able to identify.Still, the murmurs persist.

Tintri and its VM-aware storageThe company started in 2008 with the idea of providing a storage system particularly optimized for virtualized environments.At the beginning it was VMware-only, but now it also supports Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM RedHat and OpenStack with a similar set of functionalities.This is more like a federation of different storage arrays managed as a single system, and with the addition of smart data and workload placement features to help keep it balanced and efficient – resembling VMware DRS on the compute side.I m not saying it s perfect, though.They offer a seamless user experience and similar granularity to what Tintri promises.The VM-aware storage sales dilemmaVM-aware storage also has another problem: the buyer.
When it came to discussing Peter Thiel s involvement in the ongoing Gawker trial that s raised questions surrounding free speech, Jeff Bezos quoted Confucius: Seek revenge and you should dig two graves, one for yourself.Bezos, naturally, should have strong opinions when it comes to free speech: he s the owner of The Washington Post.Of course, that doesn t mean he s saying these things entirely to protect The Washington Post — the whole case has become a centerpiece for a discussion around a potential test of free speech rights.So he came out swinging on stage at Vox Media s Code Conference on Tuesday.When we win a golden globe, it helps us sell more shoes.They look across more categories, they shop more Featured Image: Linda Davidson/Getty Images

Laptop 2-in-1s never creep past 15 inches, and the thinking seems to be that flipping around such a massive piece of machine would be unnecessarily awkward.Dell has decided to blow up that idea by introducing the new Inspiron 7000, featuring a monstrous 17-inch convertible configuration.For a Windows laptop in 2016, the Inspiron 7000 has all the requisite hardware—your choice of Intel Core processors, infrared cameras to make use of Windows Hello, a USB Type-C port, a FullHD display, and so on.The new Inspiron comes in 13, 15, and yes, 17-inch models, starting at $750.Really, I just want to know if a 17-inch convertible is worthwhile or just a back-breaking beast of machine that weighs an assload.Of course, Dell could ve always made a 17-inch convertible, but did it ever stop and ask if they should?
fotograf: AlamyNär Apple lanserade Apple Watch för ett år sedan var intresset från apputvecklare stort.Realms databas används av 100 000 apputvecklare vilket enligt tidningen ger företaget en unik position för att se vilken typ av appar som utvecklas.Enligt företagets vd Tim Anglade är intresset för Apple Watch minimalt bland utvecklare.Då finns det ett större intresse för nya varienten av Apple TV.Enligt Realms statistik är tio av tusen appar som utvecklas anpassade för Apple TV.Kanske kan en ny version av klockan eller operativsystemet som väntas presenteras på utvecklarkonferensen WWDC i juni väcka nytt intresse för klockan.
Venäjän pääministeri Dimitri Medvedev esittää, että Venäjän pitäisi pidentää ruoan tuontikieltoa vuoden 2017 loppuun saakka, The Moscow Times kertoo."Maataloustuotteiden valmistajamme ovat toistuvasti pyytäneet kauppasaartoa niiden maiden tuotteille, jotka ovat asettaneet pakotteita Venäjää vastaan", Medvedev sanoi Venäjän teollisuudenharjoittajien ja yrittäjien liiton kokouksessa.Kremli asetti kauppasaarron vuonna 2014 vastalauseena ulkomaiden pakotteille, jotka johtuivat Venäjän toiminnasta Itä-Ukrainassa.Lehden mukaan Japanin G7-kokoukseen osallistuneet valtiojohtajat ilmoittivat, että Venäjän pakotteita jatketaan niin kauan kuinnes Minskin sopimus on otettu täysimääräisesti täytäntöön Ukrainassa.
House of Lies - ShowtimeYes, this hilarious, raunchy comedy starring Don Cheadle as management consultant Marty Kaan, who lives by questionable morals and a willingness to do just about anything to win an account, will end after its fifth season this year.Supported by his just-as-ruthless loyal team that includes sometimes love interest Jeannie van der Hooven Kristen Bell , eager protégé Clyde Oberholdt Ben Schwartz and goofy Doug Guggenheim Josh Lawson , they manipulate their way into some of the biggest firms, squashing anyone who attempts to top them.The show is based on the book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time, which was written by Martin Kihn, a former consultant, and the inspiration for Cheadle s character.The series finale will air on June 12.
