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.
When they weren't failing to find the droids they were looking for, or challenging Sith Lords publicly about their hokey religion, the Empire must have managed to do something.Just to be entirely clear, we're absolutely not backing any kind of fascist totalitarian state - but they did manage to assemble a few moon sized death stars, overthrow a republic and take out an army of mythically impressive Jedi.Well we don't have Death Star rays that can do it in one fell swoop, but nuclear weapons are definitely the most insidious weapons that we do have on planet Earth.Stand up Prism, the technology that governments brought in under the radar to monitor all of our communications and store it.The Empire would love Prism, and whistleblower Edward Snowden would no doubt be dealing with a squad of Stormtroopers right now if the Grand Moffs weren't far, far away.We all know that R2-D2 would have been far better at flying the X-Wing than his master and his hokey religion and it's pretty clear that Darth Vader wouldn't have been troubled by Han Solo if he wasn't lumbered with incompetent humanoid pilots, so we reckon drones would be high up on the Empire's wishlist.

While previous spy shots of the entry-level electric car "appeared to be flat, spartan, and lifeless", the website says the production version feels "refreshing" and "expansive" because of the lack of dials and buttons.As there are no dials behind the steering wheel to show your road speed, Mashable says you need to focus on the touchscreen in the centre console to see how fast you're going.TechCrunch concludes that the Model 3 "is a well-designed, mid-sized sedan that managed to simplify the Tesla design ethos with luxury in mind and without making it feel any less a part of the Tesla family."Prices are expected to start at around £30,000 "after government grants", says the Daily Mail, although UK deliveries are not expected until next year.The cheaper model comes with a battery range of 220 miles.Tesla Model 3: Performance version to arrive 'next year'
A heads-up display, which projects information such as the car's speed and battery life in front of the driver, could prevent drivers from looking at the 15ins display while driving and therefore help them focus on the road.Despite its focus on autonomous technology, the driving experience in the Model 3 “remains enjoyably analogue”, says Car magazine, while the vehicle's acceleration performance easily matches its more expensive sibling, the Model S.Drivers may find themselves using only their right foot to drive the Model 3, thanks to its regenerative braking system, which automatically applies the brakes when coasting in order to charge battery.The batteries themselves come in two different options, says Top Gear - offering a 220-mile-per-charge range or 310 miles per charge.As there are no dials behind the steering wheel to show your road speed, Mashable says you need to focus on the touchscreen in the centre console to see how fast you're going.TechCrunch concludes that the Model 3 "is a well-designed, mid-sized sedan that managed to simplify the Tesla design ethos with luxury in mind and without making it feel any less a part of the Tesla family."
the Swedish people's party president Anna-Maja Henriksson, according to the sote-reform is causing a strange situation of their municipalities, who have taken care of their mission and their finances so well, that have managed to keep the municipal tax rate to low, write the New English.the Sote-reform may well stay half way, estimates Henriksson New Finnish municipal election in an interview.He was astonished, why the basic in the Finnish social affairs and health minister have nothing to say about the social and health sector reform."Who was last heard of when some basic Finnish minister had said something important to the social and health care reform."This is now the industry's largest reform, and it is a little amazing that it only the minister of social affairs and ministry of health, which is this issue of opinions on this issue seems to be a basic service of the minister."the Sote-reform is taking the municipality except a significant portion of the obligations is also significant money in the pot.
In an update coming soon, drivers will be able to access all of Android Auto s functions straight from their cellphone in any car.That means people who can t afford a brand new ride or an aftermarket head unit will still be able to use Google Maps, voice controls, and messaging simply by mounting their mobile on the dashboard.Better yet, the system can be managed with OK Google commands, a process known as hotwording.Using Android Auto in a 20-year-old hooptie sounds pretty great, but the app itself is set to acquire a few new features including Waze.Read more: MyHyundai could be the first carmaker-specific Android Auto appFinally, as we reported earlier today, automaker-specific apps are coming to Android Auto.The first of the batch is called MyHyundai you won t believe who makes it , and it adds exclusive functions like Roadside Assistance, monthly vehicle reports, maintenance alerts, and even a Valet Mode.
Closing the gap between what Apple's iPad offers for content-creators looking to replace their laptop with a tablet, Android N's ability to show two apps on-screen simultaneously will bring a new degree of usability for hybrids like Google's own Pixel C. Meanwhile, there'll be changes to how notifications are managed in Android N too.On Android N tablets, there'll be the ability to float a second window - picture-in-picture style - so that you can carry on watching a video, holding a video call, or monitoring Twitter while simultaneously doing something else on your slate.Unlike Apple's iOS, however, multi-window won't be limited to tablets, and will instead be supported on phones.You'll be able to split the screen in two - the line runs across the center of the screen when you're holding it in portrait orientation - and then pick from other apps to have displayed at the same time.For notifications, meanwhile, there'll be more granular control over what shows up in your status bar.Tablets running Android have, though often equipped with keyboard, struggled when it comes to multitasking in comparison.
Indeed, LinkedIn claims on its website to have over 433 million registered members.Attempts to contact the seller failed, but the administrators of LeakedSource, a data leak indexing website, claim to also have a copy of the data set and they believe that the records do originate from the 2012 LinkedIn breach.Only 117m accounts have passwords and we suspect the remaining users registered using FaceBook or some similarity."Hashing is a one-way operation that generates unique, verifiable cryptographic representations of a string that are called hashes.When the 6.5 million LinkedIn password hashes were leaked in 2012, hackers managed to crack over 60 percent of them.LinkedIn users who haven't changed their passwords in a long time, are advised to do so as soon as possible.

Android Pay is now available in UK allowing you to complete contactless payments from your Android phone.We got the chance to test out the tech at a coffee shop in Central London as well as on the London Underground – and the tech works great.Sadly there's no word on Android Wear support for Android Pay yet, something Apple has managed to include on its Watch device.Android Pay allows you to make payments up to £100 as well, but anything above the £30 limit will require you to enter your pattern, PIN or fingerprint.It's currently trialling a feature called Hands Free where you can walk into a store and just say "I'd like to pay with Google" to make your transaction.Google is also launching Android Pay Day, a service that offers exclusive codes and deals to customers who use the service.
The company added that it will contact the affected members to reset their passwords too.According to a report on Vice s Motherboard, a hacker going by the name of Peace is attempting to sell account details, including the emails and partially hidden passwords, of 117 million LinkedIn users on the so-called Dark Web.LinkedIn is also quick to reassure its users that this isn t a fresh hack, though that will be of little comfort.Yesterday, we became aware of an additional set of data that had just been released that claims to be email and hashed password combinations of more than 100 million LinkedIn members from that same theft in 2012.We are taking immediate steps to invalidate the passwords of the accounts impacted, and we will contact those members to reset their passwords.It seems no company or industry is safe from the clutches of hackers, with the likes of Home Depot, Time Warner Cable, Ashley Madison, and SendGrid all suffering in recent times.Motherboard conversed with someone at LeakedSource who claimed that they managed to crack 90 percent of the LinkedIn passwords within three days.Though LinkedIn says it has hashed and salted its stored passwords for several years now, one potential problem of old passwords emerging online is that people often use the same credentials across many services.
GIFMany of us spent a good portion of our college years battling it out in Mario Kart.Those carefully-honed skills aren t exactly a big seller on your resume, unless you happen to be one of four Colorado State University students who created a real-life version of the game, complete with weapons and power-ups.It s called Junkyard Battle Racers.Undergrad engineering students Alex Zenk, Katie Johnson, Floyd Bundrant, and Jacob Gover managed to use what they d learned in their mechatronics class to create a pair of interactive go-karts that turn racing into more than just a test of their driving skills.These randomly assign the kart with either a speed boost, a shield, or a pair of weapons that can be used against other racers.But when hit by a death beam, the brakes are applied as well, bringing the kart to an immediate stand still giving your opponent the chance to race ahead.
While there are indeed some small businesses, especially startups, that follow that culture, every organization has leaders, managers, board members, and what not.Instead, everything DAO does is determined through "contracts" and computer code.And despite that somewhat nebulous description, DAO has already managed to raise more than $100 million from investors.DAO's purpose is to help fund startups and business creating applications for the Ethereum platform.DAO operates entirely based on programs, with code written by Stock.it, one of the more prominent Ethereum organizations.Business themselves might also be a bit apprehensive about the idea of an organization that can operate without or with barely any human control.
Fossil fuels are choking the atmosphere, and their supplies are dwindling - which means the combustion engine is on a limited lifespan.The market then, is crying out for more alternatives to come to the fore, and currently second place in the renewable, eco-friendly race is hydrogen.In the UK, for example, there are only four publicly accessible Hydrogen refueling points - all of which are based in and around London.Hydrogen is an exciting new technology, but it's currently crippled by lack of infrastructure.Early verdictI managed to clock up some decent mileage during my weekend with the ix35 Fuel Cell and it was an enjoyable one.Normal drivers aren't Hyundai's main focus though.
Photo courtesy Samuel, Son & Co. We ve got about 600 sales professionals and right now I couldn t accurately tell you who is doing what and where in this organization.The company also worked closely with Oracle and Deloitte to ensure payroll processes conformed to Canadian standards, managed differing payroll cycles, and complied with payroll regulations for both union and non-union employees.For example, we have 22 different vacation plans in our Canadian workforce and 12 different 401 k retirement plans in the US with limited difference between them—why?I see huge value in putting more decisions and activity into the hands of the employees and line leaders, he says.For example, if the company deadline for entering information on annual pay increases coincides with testing of the next bundle of code, Busch s team needs to build a timeline that accommodates both deadlines rather than just pushing off testing, as had been the practice with upgrades to on-premises software.Once all data is on the same platform, Busch eventually wants to present the consolidated data in a dashboard allowing executives to easily compare workforce and productivity data points across the company s operating sites.
In 1982, a tainted drug caused a handful of young Californians to become mysteriously frozen, unable to move.There was this big argument that broke out on the ward, remembers William Langston, chief scientific officer and founder of the Parkinson s Institute, a clinic and research center in Sunnyvale, California.In time, two more frozen patients, Connie and Toby, found their way into Langston s clinic.A mass spectrometer adds charges to molecules and then separates them according to their mass using a magnetic field, creating a spectrum from a complicated chemical mixture.He managed to do this successfully for a while, but he got sloppy with one batch.Connie s response to levodopa was limited, suggesting that her illness may have been too advanced to benefit from the procedure.
