Huawei MateBook X Pro’s infinity display puts the competition to shame

Huawei MateBook X Pro’s infinity display puts the competition to shame
It may look like a MacBook Pro, but Huawei’s latest goes beyond our expectations. Nearly one year ago I reviewed the Huawei MateBook X a thin, well-built Ultrabook that had a 3:2 display and outstanding audio. Competing in the same class as the Surface Laptop I couldn’t wait to see what the company did next. Today, I have my answer in the form of the MateBook X Pro, a high-end, premium laptop that blurs the line between Ultrabook and performance laptop…

NOAA just prevented SpaceX from showing its rocket in orbit
“SpaceX will be intentionally ending live video coverage of the 2nd stage.” On Friday morning, SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket into space and later deployed 10 Iridium communications satellites into low-Earth orbit as planned. But unexpectedly for most watching, the company’s webcast was precluded from showing the mission in its entirety…

NASA’s Newest Planet Hunter Will Do What Kepler Couldn’t

NASA’s Newest Planet Hunter Will Do What Kepler Couldn’t
On April 16, NASA is planning to launch its Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, or TESS, on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. TESS is an Earth-orbiting instrument meant to spot faraway planets circling some 200,000 stars within 300 light-years of Earth. Astronomers hopes that TESS will help them learn whether or not there are other habitable planets, or even life beyond the Solar System. TESS can’t do this alone, however…

Intel AMD Hybrid Kaby Lake-G Processor Proves Powerful In First Real-World Evaluations
A few months back, Intel revealed that it was working with AMD to being a family of processors to market featuring on-package Radeon RX Vega graphics. This move seemed quizzical considering the bitter rivalry between the two companies in the CPU space, but the partnership appears to have paid off handsomely if the first benchmarks in retail-ready products are any indication…

More evidence suggests LG Q7 may be launched alongside the G7 flagship
LG is still undecided on whether or not to implement the notch to its next flagship, but it looks like it’s determined to bring not one, but two high-end phones to the market. Alongside LG G7, the South Korean company showcased two other phones behind closed doors at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, the Q7 and the V35. The G7 prototype that may have been demoed at the trade fair has already been caught on camera, but we had no evidence that the other two phones exist…

Huawei MateBook X Pro review: Better than MacBook Pro

Huawei MateBook X Pro review: Better than MacBook Pro
Huawei has finally done it. With the MateBook X Pro company has created a laptop that’s a shameless copy of Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro, but that’s easy to forgive because it’s just so damn good. It’s better than the original in numerous ways, and lags behind only when it comes to certain details. I’ve spent roughly 10 days with the MateBook X Pro, mostly using it as my main work machine, and this is the first time in ages that I seriously considered permanently moving back into the realm of Windows laptops…

FCC approves SpaceX plan to launch 4,425 broadband satellites [ Lots of junk around our world are guaranteed ]
SpaceX moves ahead with Starlink but must prevent collisions from space debris. SpaceX yesterday received US approval to launch 4,425 low-Earth orbit satellites, a key milestone in its plan to offer broadband with high speeds and low latency around the world. The Federal Communications Commission issued an order approving SpaceX’s application with some conditions. SpaceX intends to start launching operational satellites as early as 2019, with the goal of reaching the full capacity of 4,425 satellites in 2024. The FCC approval just requires SpaceX to launch 50 percent of the satellites by March 2024, and all of them by March 2027…

Here’s what the Google vs. Oracle lawsuit is all about

Here’s what the Google vs. Oracle lawsuit is all about
A federal appeals court delivered a huge legal blow to Google on Tuesday, but developers are the ones who could end up paying the price. Google and Oracle have been fighting a war in court since 2012 about whether Google stole Oracle’s intellectual property when it adopted Java naming protocols for Android app developers. And after much back and forth, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled in Oracle’s favor…

Spacewalkers accomplish all objectives in six-hour excursion

Spacewalkers accomplish all objectives in six-hour excursion
Two newly arrived space station astronauts, both veteran spacewalkers, ventured outside the lab complex Thursday and installed additional wireless communications gear, replaced a balky camera and its pan-and-tilt mechanism and removed two suspect hoses in the station’s ammonia coolant system. Floating in the Quest airlock module, Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold switched their suits to battery power at 9:33 a.m. EDT (GMT-5), officially kicking off a planned 6.5-hour excursion. The astronauts got off to a late start, delayed about an hour and 20 minutes because of troubleshooting required after Feustel’s suit failed three leak checks. His helmet, gloves and carbon dioxide absorbent canister were removed, the sealing surfaces wiped down and the gear was reinstalled. The suit passed the fourth leak test and the crew pressed ahead without incident…

AMD Ryzen 5 processors get killer Amazon deals with Zen+ CPUs looming – Six cores, twelve threads, a hundred and fifty bucks.
A fresh generation of AMD processors looms on the horizon, and its approach is creating wonderful ripple effects: You can find current-gen Ryzen processors going for wickedly good deals. AMD already dropped Ryzen prices in January, then pushed them down even further this month. Now costs have plunged yet again for two mainstream models if you’re willing to fill out rebate forms. First up: The 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 1600, which we recently used in a mini-ITX Ryzen gaming PC. Amazon’s selling it for $176, or $13 less than its newly reduced price. But a rebate slashes another $20 off, bringing the total down to just $156. That’s not quite as cheap as the low-water mark this sold for during Amazon’s recent one-day PC gaming sale, but that’s an astounding number of cores and threads for the price. This chip originally launched at $220 and was worth every penny even then; Intel’s rival Core i5-8400 costs $179, and its six cores lack multi-threading and can’t be overclocked…

Microsoft is ready for a world beyond Windows – Cloud and AI are Microsoft’s future bets

Microsoft is ready for a world beyond Windows – Cloud and AI are Microsoft’s future bets
”We want to move from people needing Windows to choosing Windows, to loving Windows. That is our bold goal,” said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella three years ago. At the time, Microsoft was unveiling more details about Windows 10, and surprising people with technologies like the HoloLens headset. It was an exciting time of opportunity and optimism that had Microsoft betting on people loving Windows so much that Windows 10 would be running on 1 billion devices within three years. Neither wager worked out — which is fine, because Windows as we know it is no longer critical to Microsoft’s future success…
