first_img Dell Intel Meet Alienware’s Aurora and Dell’s G5 gaming desktops 0 4:40 Sarah Tew/CNET Although IFA 2019, Europe’s largest consumer tech show, doesn’t start until Sept. 6, Dell is already getting its big news out. The company’s top ultraportable laptop, the XPS 13, will be updated with Intel’s 10th-gen 14nm processors, including a six-core Intel Core i7-10710U. In fact, most of Dell’s Inspiron lineup will be flipped to the new chips as well. To be clear, these are not the 10th-generation 10nm Ice Lake Core processors that you’ll find in Dell’s XPS 13 two-in-one, the world’s first Project Athena-verified laptop. Instead, these are 14nm Comet Lake CPUs that include the aforementioned six-core i7 and a speed bump in supported memory up to LP4x-2933, LPDDR3-2133 and DDR4-2666 (the XPS 13 uses up to 16GB DDR3 2,133MHz). Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3 are in the supporting chipset, unlike Ice Lake, which incorporates those into the CPU die. 26 Photos Post a comment Share your voice The current XPS 13 earned a CNET Editors’ Choice award earlier this year due to its overall design, features, performance and lengthy 12-hour battery life. The new six-core processor should help it retain its title as “the most powerful 13-inch laptop in its class” by boosting its speed while still letting us work through a flight or binge-watch shows from morning to night.  The updated Dell XPS 13 will be available Aug. 27. 02-dell-inspiron-14-7000Dell’s new Inspiron 14 7000 weighs less than 2.5 pounds. Sarah Tew/CNET Several of Dell’s Inspiron laptops will be updated with the new 10th-gen Comet Lake processors and joined by a new Inspiron 14 7000. Though the Inspiron models don’t typically have the premium touches of the XPS line, the 14 7000 is build from lightweight magnesium alloy to keep its weight under 2.5 pounds (1.1 kg). An updated hinge design lets you open it one-handed and there’s a new lid sensor, so the laptop will boot the instant you lift the lid. Other upscale touches include a fingerprint reader, narrow bezels around its 14-inch FHD display — available with or without touch — and a 100% sRGB color gamut. It’ll be available with an optional Nvidia GeForce MX250 discrete GPU, too.The new Inspiron 14 7000 is currently expected to be available in October.  A few simple tweaks make the Dell XPS 13 a near-perfect… Tags Computers Now playing: Watch this:last_img read more

first_imgIsraeli military launch a missile from the Iron Dome air defence system, designed to intercept and destroy incoming short-range rockets and artillery shells, from a position in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon on 29 May 2018. Photo : AFPIsrael’s military struck more than 30 “military targets” in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday in response to a barrage of rocket and mortar fire from the Palestinian enclave, the army said.Army spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists the rocket and mortar fire at Israel was the most extensive since a 2014 war as was Israel’s response.”We just concluded a significant aerial strike where we struck more than 30 different military targets belonging to terrorist organisations,” Conricus said.”Amongst those a tunnel and different components of military infrastructure belonging to Hamas and to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.”Early Tuesday, a barrage of mortar shells from the Gaza Strip were fired at Israel. Most of the some 28 mortar shells were intercepted by Israeli air defences and no injuries were reported.Later in the day, Israel said it intercepted further projectiles fired from the Gaza Strip.There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but there was speculation the mortars were fired by Islamic Jihad in revenge for a recent incident that left three of its members dead.Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Gaza Strip, said in a statement “what the resistance carried out this morning comes within the framework of the natural right to defend our people”.Tuesday’s incidents came after weeks of deadly demonstrations and clashes along the Gaza-Israel border, beginning on March 30.They peaked on May 14, when at least 61 Palestinians were killed as tens of thousands of Gazans protested and clashes erupted on the same day of the US transfer of its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.No Israelis have been killed.last_img read more

first_img“His power came from some great reservoir of spiritual life else it could not have been so universal and so potent, but the majesty and beauty of the language with which he clothed it were all his own.” — Claude Bragdon. The musical play titled Paighamber staged at India Habitat Centre is inspired by the classic The Prophet, written by Dr Kahlil Gibran. The plays revolves around the character Anannt, portrayed by Harsh Mayar. The entire act was divided into many chapters dealing with love, marriage, children, joy and sorrow, buying and selling, crime and punishment, reason and passion, pain, good and evil, beauty, religion, and death.

first_imgOctober 21, 2009 2 min read This story appears in the November 2009 issue of Entrepreneur. Subscribe » Wireless internet access, for all its charms, remains a fickle friend. Not everyone can afford a 3G mobile broadband-equipped laptop, and Wi-Fi hotspots are neither ubiquitous nor always reliable. (When Wi-Fi access runs slow at the coffeehouse, count the accusing stares that shoot back and forth over the lattes as everyone tries to figure out who is watching Hulu.)Like so many things, wireless internet would be better if you could have it to yourself. You may be able to with the MiFi 2200 Wi-Fi device being offered by Verizon Wireless and Sprint. The MiFi is a pocket-sized router/modem made by Novatel Wireless that converts a 3G signal to Wi-Fi. That allows Wi-Fi devices within 30 square feet to link to the internet, provided it has the MiFi’s network access code.Michael Ross, director of business distribution for Verizon Wireless, says the MiFi could be valuable when a business needs a temporary office. “For example, if a small-business construction customer needs to be on the job site, a MiFi set up in an administrative trailer could mean the administrative assistant is accessing company e-mail, the project manager is using a laptop to get to the internet for information, and the operations manager is reviewing behind the firewall inventory shipment schedules,” he says. (Presumably, no one here is watching Hulu.)The MiFi costs $100 from Verizon Wireless and Sprint, and the monthly service plan is similar to what you would get from a 3G plan: 250 MB for about $40 (some 3G plans offer only 50 MB for that price), or 5 GB for about $60. It offers about five hours of full internet use, and 40 hours on standby before needing a recharge.Capable of supporting as many as five connections, the MiFi can be a bridge for all those with multiple Wi-Fi accounts, mobile broadband accounts and devices to be connected to the internet at the same time. You could even share the signal with someone you don’t know at all, if that’s how you roll. –D.O.
