New Dell XPS 13 and Inspiron 7000 Black Edition fix problems… Mentioned Above Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series Laptop -FNCWSBB0013B Review • Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 (2016) review: The king of budget laptops has arrived 16 Photos The new pen notch manages to avoid getting in the way of cooling the system. Air is blown out through the hinge, preventing the vents from being blocked when it’s on a softer surface like a pillow. The cooling is adaptive too, adjusting depending on how the computer’s being used. 1:55 Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition is made for pen lovers $649 All the cool new gadgets at CES 2019 Post a comment Now playing: Watch this: 85 Photos The Black Edition’s keyboard was redesigned also with a power button that doubles as a fingerprint reader. Dell said the change freed up enough space on the 15-inch laptop to allow for a number pad. Narrower bezels around the displays shrank the overall footprint. But if you want it significantly smaller, a 13.3-inch version will also be available. Dell did not say what components would be used in the Black Edition and pricing wasn’t immediately available. We’re expecting more details in May. A silver model without a pen garage will also be on sale.

Sarah Tew/CNET For its new Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition, announced at CES 2019, Dell created a new hinge design that allows you to store the computer’s full-size active pen right at the top of the keyboard. Drop the pen in the garage and it magnetically holds it in place. The hinge rotates so the pen remains accessible regardless of the position the screen is in. Close the screen to the keyboard and the pen is safely stowed inside. A pen garage is a seemingly small innovation, but having to hunt for a pen when you want to use it is a big sticking point for two-in-one users. And as the market for premium models continues to grow, this slight design difference could give Dell an edge on competition such as HP’s leather-clad Spectre Folio and the Lenovo Yoga C930 with its 360-degree soundbar hinge.

Cricketer Yuvraj Singh has announced investing in Housing.com’s co-founder and former CEO Rahul Yadav’s new venture. But the details of the deal have not been not disclosed.After being fired by the board members of real estate services provider Housing.com in July, Yadav has recently started Intelligent Interfaces.”Proud to back Rahul Yadav and Intelligent Interfaces (ii) in helping the Government govern 100x better with the help of technology. Get ready for the (r)evolution! (sic)” the cricketer posted on his Facebook account.Yadav’s new venture has also raised an undisclosed amount from Flipkart co-founders Sachin and Binny Bansal. Micromax’s Rahul Sharma and Paytm’s Vijay Shekhar Sharma have also invested in Intelligent Interfaces, according to a report by india.com.In July, Housing.com had ousted Yadav citing his objectionable behaviour towards investors, partners and the media.”The board believes his behaviour is not befitting of a CEO and is detrimental to the company,” a source close to the developments had said.Yadav, 26, a final-year dropout from IIT-Bombay, had created a fair amount of controversy at the company before he was fired. Yadav had quit the real-estate startup in May, criticising the board members in his resignation letter. Later, he did a U-turn by withdrawing his resignation and apologising to the board.Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh launched YouWeCan Ventures earlier this year to invest in Internet start-ups in the country. So far, the venture has reportedly backed start-ups including Edukart (education), Healthians (healthcare), Vyomo (beauty services) and Moovo (logistics).
The second span of Padma Bridge is installed on Sunday. Photo: Satyajit GhoshThe second span (superstructure) of the much-hyped Padma Bridge was installed between pillars 38 and 39 on Sunday morning, reports news agency UNB.With the installation of the second span around 8:30am, a total of 300 metres of the Padma Bridge is now visible, said the engineers concerned.A concerned official said now it will be possible to set up more than one span in every month.Earlier on Saturday, the second span of the bridge could not be installed due to the depth and strong current in the river.“The installation process of the 150 metres span has been started on Saturday morning. The floating crane carrying the 150-metre span weighing 3,140 tonnes could not reach the pillars for depth and strong current in the river,” said Mir Faruque Hossain, surveyor of the project.The work of Padma Multipurpose Bridge became visible with the installation of a 150-metre first span on the pillars 37 and 38 on September 30 last.The construction work on the country’s largest bridge started in December in 2015 and it is expected that the mega construction will be completed by December this year.A total of 41 spans, each 150 metres long, will be installed on 42 concrete pillars of the 6.15-km bridge, according to the engineers concerned.

Register Now » September 28, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Threats in Tesla’s rearview mirror are closer than they appear, but Elon Musk isn’t flinching. He’s “glad” for the competition. In fact, he wishes big car companies would put the pedal to the metal already.“I’m glad to see these announcements of these other companies,” Musk said of the increasing number of competitors revving up electric car plans during an interview with the Danish newspaper Børsen. “I hope they move even faster than they announce.”The visionary entrepreneur has all but begged traditional automakers to enter the battery-powered vehicle race for years now, from the pages of GQ to the heart of Motor City, and just about any time he commands the media spotlight, which is often.Related: Apple’s Tesla Challenger Could Roll Into the Market By 2019Musk, currently overseas to cut the ribbon on Tesla’s first European assembly plant, recently noted that seven long years have passed since his Palo Alto, Calif.-based startup unveiled the Roadster, its inaugural luxury electric sports car. Now, in a warming world circled by an estimated 1.2 billion cars — only about 2.5 percent of them electric, fuel-cell or battery electric — the billionaire is cooling off on outright condemning the auto industry for being asleep at the sustainable wheel. His approach today seems more honey than vinegar.When asked by Børsen how he feels about taking on auto and energy industry giants, Musk acknowledged that it’s challenging, yet pointed to how widely his car company has grown in spite of being a disruptive outsider. “It can be quite difficult at times,” he admitted. “The big car companies and the big energy companies have quite sharp elbows, so, at various times, they try to squash small companies like Tesla, but generally I think we have the popular support.” Related: Stephen Colbert Tries to Figure Out if Elon Musk Is a Superhero or Something More Sinister (VIDEO)The Børsen interviewer noted that some other high-end carmakers, specifically Porsche, are gaining traction. Musk responded by underscoring the “ideological motivation” behind why he launched Tesla Motors in 2003 in the first place: to stop human extinction by popularizing sustainable transportation. If all else fails, pack your SpaceX spacesuit, it’s Mars or bust.“The reason that we’re doing Tesla is to try to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport, to have there be more electric cars on the road,” Musk said, “and, to that end, we actually open-sourced all of our patents. Any e-car company can use our technology. It’s no problem. They don’t even have to pay a fee to us.”Share and share alike, and eat your heart out, Apple. Musk welcomes the challenge, late in the game as it is. Without more electric cars from more competitors on the road, he fears for the future of our world and our species, that is if artificial intelligence doesn’t annihilate us first.
