A unit with the same Core i5 processor and a larger 240GB SSD goes for $1,099 (912.93 and AU$1,699), while the largest 500GB SSD variant comes in at $1,199 (996 AU$1,899). The BlackBook Zero 14s with faster Intel Core i7 CPUs start with a 240GB SSD model for $1,249 (1,037.54 and AU$1,949), with a larger capacity 500GB Core i7 model landing at $1,349 (1,120.61 and AU$2,149) and the largest capacity 1TB SSD Core i7 model costing $1,549 (1,286.75 and AU$2,549). Design With a body honed from a black sandblasted metal alloy composite, this 1.4kg (3 pound) clamshell is around 15% heavier than the lighter 2-in-1s and Ultrabooks that youd generally pit it against. It might seem counter-intuitive for an ultraportable unit to intentionally pack on the pounds, but when you consider that its extra weight is mostly due to the sturdy metal chassis and its fractionally bigger 14.

The reason for this divide of opinion is that the Samsung Galaxy series TouchWiz overlay, which sits atop Android, has been maligned for years as too overbearing. Well, for years Samsung has been refining the experience, making it lighter to use and look at, and this year it's cleaner than ever without losing the Samsung 'look' that many of its users will be accustomed to. This means the fonts are smoother, the menus more clean and natural-looking (with little recommendations of other things you might be looking for in the settings menu a nice touch), and even the symbols for navigating through the phone have been altered to offer a more premium look. (Well, we say premium they look more like ancient runes or hieroglyphics. But hey, that's what's there). Samsung Galaxy S8 colors: what options will you have? Design Right, that's the big changes out of the way so let's get on to how this thing looks.

According to our sources inside Munich, the new 3 Series will be lighter than its predecessor by a considerable margin. Using lightweight materials throughout its chassis and body, the new sedan will be looking to reclaim its number one spot in the segment as it has over the last 40 years. Built under the code G20 , the new 3 Series will officially be available for sale in early 2019.

These still left it feeling secure on the face and the headset feels slightly lighter too. It allows you to move your head around with ease and there's no issues of wires, which are a big problem with the HTC Vive. Putting the Galaxy S8 inside the headset also didn't make it feel too heavy. You can easily move the straps with Velcro to ensure it's close enough to your eyes, while there's padding on the inside to keep it comfortable around your face. This isn't something you'll want to wear for hours at a time though, so the design is comfortable for a few minutes rather than long gaming stints like you may expect from the PlayStation VR. The focus adjuster on the top might need a bit of tweaking, especially if you're a glasses wearer. Despite the impressively low latency and high resolution, virtual reality is still at a point where some people will come away feeling a tad queasy, so it's important that you're always using Gear VR at optimum clarity.

In short: Bixby currently isn't as good as Google Assistant, which is thankfully also on the phone. The final big change is to the UI and some people still won't be happy, while others will.

Semiconductors are the cornerstone of modern electronics. They're used in solar cells, light emitting diodes (LEDs), microprocessors in laptops and cell phones, and more. Most of them are made of silicon, but silicon has its limitations. So for decades researchers have been exploring new materials with properties that make them good candidates for better, lighter, and cheaper energy-efficient lamps, solar cells, and even – someday, perhaps – solar energy-harnessing "paint."

The latter, in all likelihood, will describe the car with the combination of high equipment level and Kia’s new 1.0-litre, 99bhp turbocharged petrol engine – which we’ll drive later.The GT Line styling kit adds extended front and rear valances and side sills to the standard Picanto’s already-relatively-pumped-up form, as well as exterior trim finishers for the grilles and sills that can be had in red, satin chrome or black. Chromed twin exhaust tips also feature.As we reported earlier of the cheaper 1.0-litre version, the new Picanto is based on a widely overhauled body-in-white that’s longer in the wheelbase and shorter in the front overhang than the last version was – as well as 40 per cent torsionally stiffer and 21kg lighter. Stiffer anti-roll bars, re-tuned springs and dampers, an all-new torsion beam rear suspension system and a quicker steering rack are key parts of the chassis overhaul.

Apple's pursuit for thinner, lighter, bezel-free phones knows no limits, and its quest for the sleekest device possible looks set next to focus on the fingerprint scanner. A new patent shows the company once again turning its attentions to the possibility of embedding an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner into the display of its future phones, whether that's the iPhone 8 or beyond. It's the second time we've heard evidence of such a system being employed, adding weight to the potential inclusion of the feature further down the line. Grimey, greasy grabbers So, what's the benefit of this method rather than a physical Touch ID button? As well as the space saving efficiencies, Apple considers the ultrasonic tech as "the most accurate but least common finger-scanning technology." It states that: "Contaminants such as grease, lotion, dirt, sweat, and food particles on a finger can degrade a captured fingerprint image, which can prevent a fingerprint sensing device from matching the captured fingerprint image to a known fingerprint image.

planes could be made by graphene within the next ten years. We have talked a lot about that, it is this one the material. A super thin material that is 200,000 times stronger than steel and a thousand times lighter than paper apparently. The cost of getting people wherever you go is the fuel, so the less you can do that is better and better for the environment as well. Mike, thank you for being with us, Article 50 day.
