Come to think of it, it's cheaper than most iPad Mini 4 deals too! The short version? If you're after a good value new iPad, this is seriously worth considering. Where to pre-order the new iPad 9.7 If you want to lock down your new iPad 9.7 pre-order straight away, then your only option for now is direct from Apple. Expect other retailers to get their own stock a week or so after Apple's first batch of orders ship out. Ready to order a new iPad now? Then you better get on over to the Apple US or Apple UK store while stocks last. How big is the new iPad? The new iPad has a 9.7-inch retina display. In terms of dimensions, the height and width is the same as the iPad Air 2 (240 x 169.5mm). It's slightly thicker though at 7.5mm, compared to 6.1mm, which is a bit of a modest increase. It's also about 30 grams heavier than the Air 2 (about the weight of a bag of crisps).

Smartwatches, VR headsets and Bluetooth speakers can all take a back seat, wireless in-ear headphones are the latest must-own tech accessory. With smartphones moving away from classic cabled connections, the need to cut the cords is growing. That's where the $199.95 (169.99 / AU$299.95) Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear Wireless headphones come in, as the last pair of audio enablers to tick all the right cable-cutting boxes, with Bluetooth 4.1 and aptX abilities making it easier to shun the traditional 3.5mm audio jack. These are part of a new breed of wireless in-ear headphones, however. Ones untroubled by degraded sound, latency issues and woeful battery life. Theyre also a pair of headphones that are entering an increasingly crowded market, with this neckband style design having been adopted by everyone from Bose and Beats to Samsung and LG.

Do we smell more rap beef??? Kendrick Lamar just dropped a new song called The Heart Part 4 (bless), and it didn't take long before Twitter started speculating that the 29-year-old was taking shots at Drake and Big Sean on the track! In it, the m.A.A.d city artist seems to play off Drizzy's Pound Cake by rapping: "Tables turned, lesson learned, my best look/You jumped sides on me, now you 'bout to meet Westbrook Go celebrate with your team and let victory vouch you/Just know the next game played, I might slap the shit out you" Later, he might be referencing Big Sean's album Hall Of Fame by saying: "Hoe, Jay Z Hall of Fame, sit your punk ass down (Sit yo' punk ass down)" Regardless of the recipient of the shade, K. Dot is definitely going IN! Related: Drake & Kid Cudi's Beef Lives On! Ch-ch-check out the best reactions online (below)!

Russian-backed forces in the Donbas attacked Ukrainian troops with mortars, artillery, small arms, and tanks over the last 24 hours, Ukrainian Ministry of Defense spokesperson Andriy Lysenko said at a press conference on March 24. No Ukrainian soldiers were killed in the attacks, but three were wounded, Lysenko said. The Donetsk area remains the most active, with 42 shelling incidents recorded over the past 24 hours. Repeated heavy clashes were recorded at frontline positions to the south-west and east of the city of Avdiyivka in the government-held part of Donetsk Oblast, in particular near the Butovka coal mine and the village of Kamyanka. “The occupants are using tanks and mortars, and the shelling takes place both day and night,” Lysenko said. “The peak of the fighting came between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., when the militants were shelling several of our defense lines at once.

The UK is lagging behind the rest of Europe, so what do mothers in other countries receive? In Depth Friday, March 24, 2017 - 4:15pm British mothers have one of the least generous maternity pay deals in Europe, according to new research. The UK was ranked 22nd out of 24 European countries that offer statutory maternity pay, in a survey by the Trades Union Congress. TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady said that many parents in the UK were forced back to work early "to pay the bills". But the Department for Work and Pensions dismissed the TUC and claimed the UK maternity leave system was "one of the most generous in the world". What are women in the UK entitled to? Most employed mothers are entitled to 52 weeks' maternity leave, of which 39 weeks are covered by statutory maternity pay. For the first six weeks of maternity leave, statutory maternity pay is usually paid at 90 per cent of average weekly earnings.

Apple has just begun accepting orders for the new 9.7-inch iPad and (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on its online store in the United States and dozens of other countries and regions around the world. The new 9.7-inch iPad is equipped with a faster Apple A9 chip and brighter Retina display compared to the iPad Air 2, which has been discontinued. It is also somewhat thicker and heavier than the iPad Air 2 since it lacks a fully laminated display with anti-reflective coating in order to keep costs down. The tablet's tech specs are otherwise identical to the iPad Air 2, including a display resolution of 2,048‑by‑1,536 at 264 PPI, 8-megapixel rear iSight camera, 1.2-megapixel front FaceTime camera, two speakers, Lightning connector, 3.5mm headphone jack, Touch ID with Apple Pay , and Bluetooth 4.2. The new 9.7-inch iPad starts at 329 for a 32GB model with Wi-Fi, making it the cheapest new tablet that Apple has ever sold.

The MINI John Cooper Works Clubman finished the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds, according to the factory, the top speed is 238 km/h. In everyday life, JCW drivers are likely to enjoy the early torque, as the 350 Newton meters are already available from 1,450 up to the 4,500 rpm mark. The top performance is also in a remarkably wide range, because the 231 HP can be enjoyed at every speed between 5,000 and 6,000 crankshaft revolutions per minute. At the side of the powerful engine MINI is a specially tuned sports suspension, which is separated from the chassis of the weaker models in terms of kinematics and component stiffness. The top model does not have any modifications to the tried and tested basic design with the single-joint front axle and multi-link rear axle, but the tighter design of the spring and damper elements still provides for a richer road situation.

Besides docs, you can create slideshows, drawings, spreadsheets, and more. 3. Grammarly I dont care if you’re Mark Twain, everyone is bound to make mistakes when writing. Whether it’s a silly spelling error or poor grammar, it’s impossible to catch everything. But Grammarly will do just that (or pretty darn close to it). Add it to Chrome, and Grammarly will monitor everything you write, point out any issues, and offer advice on how to resolve them. It goes above and beyond Word and will make you look like an expert even if your writing skills are lackluster: The cool thing is that it will also scan your emails before sending them out so you dont look like an idiot when corresponding to customers or clients. I highly recommend it! 4. Word Counter Word count is kind of a big deal, especially if you’re writing long-form content and need to reach a specific number of words.

Gold and silver producer Klondex Mines Ltd (TSE:KDX, NYSE:KLDX) expects to lift total output for 2017 by around 36% from the previous year. The miner produced a record 151,007 gold equivalent ounces from its Nevada operations last year, exceeding the high end of management's expectations. Cash costs per gold equivalent ounce sold were $637, and within the expected range of between $600 and $650 per ounce. Irons in a few fires Klondex owns 100% of two assets - the Fire Creek mine and, around 100 miles away, the Midas Mine and ore milling facility, both in Nevada, USA.

Surprise #2. The center support appears to be solid wood. (You can see edge grain and I doubt they veneered it.) Given that this part will never be seen, I'm surprised they didn't use less expensive plywood. While a single piece of 3/4" plywood might sag over the span, I think if they doubled it up it would do fine. There must be some production reason why it was more economical to use solid wood. Surprise #3: Now that I could see that the legs are actually shaped like sketch 2 above, it surprised me to see that they were actually one piece of solid wood, not some composite pieces that had been veneered. The telltale is the change in grain on sides of the legs perpendicular to each other. In the image below, you can see it's going from face grain on surface D to edge grain on surface E. (It was quite dark so I've lightened the photos artificially in an effort to reveal detail, sorry for the poor quality.
