LG starts fighting on the next front

Korean electronics manufacturer is developing very dynamically, entering the next market segment with computers and tablets. In the homeland of the well known laptop manufacturer, it prepares the first devices for markets outside of Asia.

CES 2013 will announce the launch of three types of devices from LG, including Hybrid Tablet (Tap-Book), Ultrabook and an all-in-one PC with touch screen. All new computers will work under Windows 8.

The Hybrid Tap-Book is a combination of a tablet with a slide-out keyboard. Touch screen is 11.6 inches diagonal, the device works under Microsoft Windows 8. The LG offer will feature two tap-books: the H160, which can work without recharging for 12.5 hours. The Z160 has all the benefits of a cheaper model and comes with an i5 processor. The tap-books are equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI out, USB port and microSD card slot. The weight of everyone is just 1.05 kg.

LG will also show ultrabooki. The first is the Z360, which despite its rich equipment is only 13.6 mm thick and weighs only 1.15 kg. The Intel Core i5 processor-based processor lets you boot your computer in 8 seconds. Full HD screen resolution, IPS matrix and brightness of up to 300 cd / m2 guarantee high image quality. In addition, the Ultrabook comes with Wi-Fi wireless connectivity, allowing easy transfer of Full HD (1080p) video content without the need for cables.SSD with SATA interface makes it easy to work with large files and documents, greatly speeding up the opening.…

Apple again shows that it is in the mobile device market

IPhone 6S is here! And with him a number of other news, including the new tablet, iPad Pro. Will the newcomers prove better than Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge +?

However, before the show of the latest varieties of Apple phones came, a new refreshed version of the iPad was introduced. Bigger and faster: So in short, you can determine iPad Pro, because this is what is called tablet novelty from Apple. This is the device with the largest screen, which used the operating system iOS. The screen size is impressive: it’s 12.9 inches. Its resolution is 2732 by 2048 pixels. This gives a pixel density of 264.68 PPI. It’s not crazy: compared to today’s smartphones, it’s almost “little”. The size of the tablet itself, however, gives a clear sign: iPad is increasingly tending towards a tool targeted at businesses. It is worth adding that in many industries, its classic version is already successfully used.

The heart of the iPad Pro is the A9X processor almost twice as fast as its predecessor the A8X used on the iPad Air 2. Despite this increase in productivity, the tablet is expected to run for up to 10 hours.

An attractive add-on facilitating the work seems to include a full-size keyboard. Looking at it, it is impossible to get the impression that Apple engineers, by design, stared at Microsoft Surface.

Controlling your new iPad will certainly make it easier for your stylus. Apple’s stylus simply called “Pencil”. It’s a big surprise, because Apple has been defending itself against the use of stylus for years with arms and legs.

New iPad Pro tablets are priced very high. The 32GB version costs $ 799, 128 GB version is $ 949, and the 128 GB version supports LTE connectivity of $ 1079. Prices from space (we estimate the price x4, which included the dollar exchange rate, VAT and brokerage margins).

The star of the evening was without a doubt the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. The world’s most popular mobile phone series has come up with its latest variety. New phones are basically “big updates” hardware predecessors. The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are sold in almost identical cases as their predecessors. The changes are still in the details. The first is a new, modified hull construction that is expected to outlive its predecessors. Does this mean the end of the fear of folding your phone in your pocket while sitting down in a chair? This will surely check many testers just after the appearance of phones in stores. Scratch resistance is expected to increase the new toughened glass screen. It’s an Ion-X, which, unlike its …

NASA to 2016 will use the Russian rocket

After NASA completed the space shuttle program in 2011, NASA is no longer able to send astronauts into space and must use Russian help. And for several more years will not be able to do so.

Currently, American astronauts are heading into space with the help of the Russian Roscosmoz Russian Space Agency, which the Russians lend to their Soyuz ships. Americans want to become independent, so three years ago a Com- mercial Crewing Program was launched, in which the private sector developed its own shuttle.

The original plan was to send the American astronaut himself in 2015, but as a result of budget cuts, the project has already been delayed for two years and is unlikely to be realized soon. NASA had to extend the cooperation agreement with Roscosmost, signed with the Russians in 2009, by 2016, which would cost the US agency an additional $ 424 million.

It can not be ruled out that next year NASA will cut its budget further for its own research, which could lengthen the contract with the Russians several years later.…

Samsung wants to hand out cards in the market for TV applications

Samsung intends to gain a strong position in the minicomputer market in the future. The Korean company has a good starting point, especially in the area of ​​software for televisions that can connect to the Internet.

From 30 to 50 percent of TVs sold by Samsung in the next two years will be able to communicate with the Web, “said KH Kwon, senior vice president, Samsung Media Solution Center. Koreans already have a large number of TVs sold – and that is the success of the application. The company also wants premium software in this area.

Programmers should be used: typically 60 to 70 percent of their revenue comes from their sales; In the end, it is quite a sum. According to data published at the beginning of summer by Steve Jobs, Apple has so far handed over to iPhone application authors over one billion dollars.

Samsung has developed its own operating system for smartphones (Bada), but in the manufactured phones also installs Android; Soon it will do the same with Windows Phone 7. A slightly different way the company intends to deal with TVs: as a market leader, it can use its position to dictate the trends. KH Kwon reported that the company wants to take a good position in selling online ads displayed on television screens.…

Ecological Hyundai Ioniq with three types of drive

Korean Hyundai will be showcasing its latest model, the Ioniq, in January, which will be equipped with a very eco-friendly drive. The vehicle, which will go to Korean salons in just a few weeks, will offer three types of electric and hybrid drives.

In the coming years we should expect a much larger number of vehicles equipped with electric motors, which significantly better protect the environment compared to current solutions. One such model will be the Hyundai Ioniq, which will officially debut in South Korea in January, but will later be showcased at the Geneva and New York car showrooms.

Hyundai Ioniq is a compact vehicle that will be equipped with three types of drive. Korean engineers have developed a fully electric, plug-in hybrid diesel engine and electric-hybrid hybrid for this model. What’s more, it will be the first car in the world in which all will be installed in a single body.

Ioniq is based on a completely new platform designed specifically for new types of drive and so the fully electric version will be equipped with a high capacity lithium-ion battery pack. On the other hand, standard hybrid and plug-in hybrids will receive an internal combustion engine of unknown capacity, as well as electric assisted motors.…

Cooler solar cells will give you more energy

Modern photovoltaic panels are quite inefficient, and one of the factors that cause them is heat. The higher the temperature, the lower the efficiency of the cells and the less electricity they produce. University of Stanford researchers have devised a solution that prevents them to heat up.

Cheap energy from the sun would be an ideal way to supply our homes if the current photovoltaic cells are not very efficient. In large part, it is responsible for the same sun, emits light in which the infrared spectrum is also present, and heat negatively affects the performance of the cells, greatly reducing the efficiency of energy production.

However, the Stanford researchers have developed a special, transparent coating consisting of patterned silica that is applied to the cell. This layer separates the visible spectrum of light, that is, those responsible for energy production, from thermal radiation. This makes the cells cooler and thus more photons can be changed into electricity.

Professor Shanhui Fan, head of the team responsible for the invention claims that the new coating has helped reduce the cell temperature by about 5.5 degrees Celsius, thus increasing their efficiency by about 1 percent. That’s a lot, considering that most of the cells now have a performance rate of 7 percent.…

The first Android One smartphones are presented

At yesterday’s show in New Delhi, Google unveiled a trio of new smartphones developed under the Android One. The Karbonn Sparkle V, Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498, and Micromax Canvas A1 are cheap and will often be updated.

So far, the biggest problem for smartphones on Android was that the manufacturer quickly forgot them and stopped providing system updates, leaving the user with expensive hardware whose functionality became increasingly limited over time. The solution to this problem is a Google-initiated program called Android One, which aims to support the construction of not only cheap mobile phones, but also frequently updated.

There are three smartphone models in India today: Karbonn Sparkle V, Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498, and Micromax Canvas A1, which will cost $ 106, $ 104 and $ 103, respectively.

We’re talking about mid-range hardware, with 4.5-inch 480 x 854 pixel touchscreens. Although the technical specification has not yet been fully disclosed but unofficially it is said to be equipped with 1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core processors, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of usable memory.

All three models will also receive a 5 megapixel camera with a 2 megapixel front camera.

They will also have 3G, Bluetooth and WiFi, a 1700 mAh battery, two SIM cards, and an Android 4.4.4 KitKat installed. However, their greatest advantage will be the frequent updates of the operating system, which will increase the functionality of these handsets.…

End of BitTorrent Now

BitTorrent’s entry into the legal content distribution market has been a failure. BitTorrent Now service has been closed down and work has lost an undefined number of employees. The service has remained on the market barely two months.

BitTorrent, the creator of the most popular file sharing system, has been seen as supporting piracy for years. The company wanted to get rid of this patch and in July hired Jeremy Johnson and Robert Delamar as deputy directors and launched a completely new BitTorrent service. It was a service that distributes legal films and music from independent producers.

Unfortunately, it has not survived too long. The media is reporting the release of previously hired deputy directors, as well as many other employees, as well as the closure of BitTorrent Now.

There is no official statement on this issue, so it is not clear exactly what causes such a major change and reshuffle. Unofficially, however, it is said that launching BitTorrent Now turned out to be a costly project, which eventually lost control. Too much spending made the company stand on the brink of bankruptcy and had to carry out a major restructuring.…

New technology will replace stitches after surgery

Shortly after the surgery, or in the case of injuries, the seams can become completely redundant. Several students from Brunel University in Uxbridge have devised a special design that will replace stitches without leaving a trace on the body.

Students developed a device concept called Suture, which in a very simplistic way, serves to close the wounds. Its job is to spot injuries or wounds after surgery, but it does not do it with standard seams used for decades but in a different way.

The device, which is only a project for the year 2030, uses heavily concentrated high frequency ultrasound to clog the torn skin without leaving a scar after.

Andrew Guscott, the head of the project, believes that his invention will become a basic surgical device because it not only allows tissue to be clamped but also cut, so it can replace a typical scalpel.…

“Comet of the Century” is alive and well, it is just approaching the Sun.

ISON Comet, also called by some comets of the century, warms not only the scientists but also the amateur astronomers. Yesterday (November 27), the SOHO satellite managed to register an object approaching the sun.

All the noise around the comet is due to the fact that on the way back, it will be extremely close to Earth. The most optimistic estimates say that it may even be as clear as the full moon. However, one thing must be fulfilled – the comet must survive the meeting with our star.

At this moment, the comet is approaching the sun, but it is not known whether the sun has not fallen under the influence of solar energy. This will only appear when it starts to bother you. For scientists, such a course of events is not undesirable as it would allow them to observe its nucleus.Millions of people all over the world hope that the comet ISON will survive the close-up, successfully turn around and head towards our planet, giving us the chance to observe this unique phenomenon.…
