Huawei is the manufacturer of the new Nexus 7

This year, Google has launched two new smartphone models, Nexus 5X and 6P. Many wonder what the web giant plans for tablets, specifically the latest generation of Nexus 7. If you believe in media reports, its creation will probably be entrusted to the Huawei Chinese company.

The compact Nexus 7 debuted in 2012, and a year later its next generation was launched by Asus. So it is high time for a new model, which, if you believe the latest rumors, will appear in the next calendar year, however, will no longer come from the Taiwanese factories of Asus. This time the creation of this device, the web giant will probably entrust the Huawei Chinese company.

What’s more, the media claims that the work on the device is already advanced enough that its premiere can take place at next year’s Google I / conference. Unfortunately, the same sources are still silent about the technical specifications of the device so far, so it’s hard to say what the equipment will be.…

$1 million vacuum cleaner

Not-so-famous Go Vacuum brand has announced it is launching a limited series of one hundred gold-plated vacuum cleaners. The 24-carat casing should be considered as an investment because gold prices have been on the rise for a long time and no one is expecting a reversal of this trend.

Washington resident Justin Haver came up with the idea of ​​a gilded morning vacuum cleaner as he walked into the bathroom and “had the impression that his vacuum cleaner flashed.” The brilliant businessman told the Daily Mail: “The high status and prestige associated with having such a vacuum cleaner have an intangible asset.” Well unless that’s it, because as far as material is concerned, the million-dollar price of each piece seems a bit overdone.

The “one-of-a-kind” vacuum cleaner would be a paradox if it were to encourage cleaning. So expensive gadgets would buy those who can afford to help keep the house clean. Perhaps GoVacuum GV62711 rich people will simply … have. The more that the target group consists of people who “already have a yacht at sea, a rare car model in the garage, and a private jet.”…

Galaxy Note 4 will receive an improved fingerprint reader

According to the latest reports, the latest business model of the Galaxy Note 4 phablet, which will soon be on sale, will be equipped with a slightly improved fingerprint reader technology for user authentication.

It seems that Samsung has adapted to the fingerprint scanning technology of modern smartphones and is beginning to install it in more and more devices. The Korean giant first introduced it to the Galaxy S5 and then moved it to the Galaxy Alpha.

Now they hear that it will also implement it in the latest model Galaxy Note 4, which will soon be introduced to the store shelves. The source that disclosed this information claims that the same business model of the phablet will use the same Natural ID technology that is present in the already mentioned Galaxy Alpha.

And that means that for the scanner to work, the user must slide his finger at the bottom of the screen towards the Home button. Many smartphone owners consider this to be a little intuitive and far from ideal. Samsung apparently thinks otherwise, as it will continue to hold on to it.

The source also revealed that the scanner will offer several features already known for the Galaxy S5, namely unlocking the screen, private mode, account verification and making payments via PayPala.

There will also be two completely new. The first one is the so-called. Fingerprint Shortcuts, an option to create shortcuts by assigning features or fingerprint applications to each of our fingers. In other words, we can assign a browser to one finger, so after using it and unlocking the phone screen, instead of the main screen, we will be transferred directly to the web browser.

Another new feature is Web Sign-In, so the ability to automatically log in to certain pages with our password saved by dragging your finger on the Home button. This solution can be safer and much more convenient for the user.…

Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 the most powerful graphics card in the world

Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 is the latest graphics card from the Maxwell family, which is also currently the most powerful graphics card on the market – it delivers smooth play in any 4K game, even the most demanding! What’s more, the GeForce GTX 980 is also a chip that has a fantastic power-to-performance ratio … and it’s a total competitor in the performance category.

GeForce GTX 980 is the new front-line model of the latest Nvidia series. The codename for its architecture is “Maxwell”. With its premiere on the market also appeared its weaker, (which does not mean that poor!) GTX 970 The rival for the new top model, however, is not the competition (it does not have any card in the arsenal that can fight the GTX 980) but … GeForce GTX 780 Ti, the layout of the previous generation. It turns out that the most powerful single-processor system is the AMD Radeon R9 290X – but it is clearly weaker even with GeForce GTX 970.

By default, the GTX 980 works with 1127 MHz clock (with Boost 1216 MHz) for the core and 1750 MHz for the memory. On board the most powerful Maxwell is mounted as much as 4 GB – it is of course the fast memory type GDDR5. It is worth adding that the timing will depend mainly on the manufacturer of the graphics card itself: for example, Gigabyte is already selling the standard Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 G1 Gaming, which is clocked up as standard with the 1228 MHz and 1354 MHz games in Boost. .

Performance of the latest Nvidia baby is impressive. Compared to the most powerful graphics card of the previous generation, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti speaks more than 15% performance increase. In turn, with respect to the GeForce GTX 780 nearly 30% increase in performance. When added to this, the fact that the latest Nvidia baby will be available at the same price as the GTX 780 Ti … the case seems obvious.

This mega-performance can still be lifted. The new GeForce GTX 980 cards are spinning “crazy” – from 1127 MHz (with Boost 1362 MHz), you can easily upgrade up to 1378 MHz (with a 1.5 GHz Boost!). New Maxwell circuits have crossed, so the magic limit of 1.5 GHz is just amazing.…

Portable HIV test

Researchers from Imperial College London, in collaboration with DNA Electronics, have developed a portable HIV test. The device called HIV-1 is a pocket-sized laboratory that tests blood samples for its presence.

HIV continues to pose a huge threat to human life. Especially in developing countries where access to modern laboratories makes it difficult to detect. Researchers from British Imperial College London, with the help of DNA Electronics engineers, have developed a portable test that can quickly and easily detect the presence of the virus in the blood.

The product called HIV-1 is a portable laboratory of the size of a typical pendrive that performs a blood sample. Data is then transferred to a connected computer or mobile device displaying results.

Of course, the tester is a one-off, but very accurate. During clinical trials on 991 blood samples, up to 95% accuracy was obtained. However, the average duration of such a test was about 21 minutes, so the result is known very quickly.…

Galaxy S6 with new fingerprint sensor?

The closer to the official presentation of the latest Samsung flagship, the more it appears on the network leaks on it. Recent reports suggest that the Galaxy S6 will be equipped with a brand new fingerprint sensor, similar to the technology used in Apple devices.

Biometric technology has become a reality in our smartphones and more and more models have fingerprint readers. The device will also have the upcoming Galaxy S6, although it is said to be a slightly different version than previous devices in this family.

The Galaxy S5 has a biometric sensor, but it’s a technology different from that found in Apple’s hardware. The user has to move the fingerprint over the sensor to scan the fingerprint, which is a bit cumbersome. The manufacturer wants to change that and in January he claimed that the Galaxy S6 will come with a touch sensor.

It looks like the new sensor reports are true. You can see it in the picture of the Galaxy S6 presented this week by T-Mobile operator, where it can be seen that it was built into the Home button.…
