HP, like every other Windows-bent PC firm, has made its mission to outdo Microsofts own Surface line, especially in the workplace. The second attempt from HP, unveiled in Barcelona at MWC 2017 , seems better suited than ever to enamor employees and IT leaders alike. This is the HP Pro x2 612 G2, the second version of HPs business-focused take on, say, its HP Spectre x2 line of consumer-grade, 2-in-1 computing devices. For a starting price of $979 or 899, the Pro x2 612 G2 comes equipped with Intels 7th generation (Kaby Lake) line of fanless-focused Y series Core processors as well as a 12-inch, WUXGA+ (1,920 x 1,280) touch display and a built-in fingerprint reader for secure Windows Hello logins through Windows 10 Pro. Intels processors on offer, however, start with a Pentium Y series chip, then graduate to a Core m3 CPU before entering the beefy Core i5 Y and Core i7 Y chips.
How Sweet It Is

It is so freaking good. We’ve been eating it for ages now (thanks mostly to Eddie, who started making it once a week last year) but especially lately, in these last few weeks as I’ve been shooting a plethora of those random recipes for the book, we’ve heavily relied on it. It comes with the yeast packet and all you have to do is add water and let it rise. Sometimes I’ve even thrown some dried herbs and parmesan into the dough. It’s so customizable. And easy, especially for Eddie, who isn't used to making my own dough recipe ten million times. Just look at that fluffy heap of love! So stretchy and silky, just how I like it. Kneading that kind of dough is one of the best feelings in the world. Right?! Okay, BUT! My favorite part of this pizza?! The one that can't be ignored? Eeeeep. These truffled mushrooms. GUYS. I can’t even explain the flavor here.

This particular model wont be available in the United States, but other regions will be able to use cellular data without your phone nearby, as well as being able to make and receive calls, all of which should be especially useful for anyone who wants to leave their phone at home when running or cycling. Its also worth noting that both models feature built-in GPS, a suite of sensors, like a continuous heart rate monitor, NFC capability for Android Pay support, and a barometer that measures altitude. Huawei Watch 2 price Huaweis debut smartwatch wasnt exactly the most affordable wearable, especially since it was angled as a premium offering. The same rings true for the Huawei Watch 2 and Watch 2 Classic, which start at 329 Euros (around $350/280/AU$450), though exact pricing in these regions hasn't been confirmed.

4 one f/1.8 IP68 dust and water resistance Android 7.0 Nougat with Google Assistant Mid-March 2017 release date LG G6 review: Design, key features and first impressions Inevitably, that long screen translates into a pretty tall phone, but it isnt quite as awkward a shape as you might expect it to be. That’s thanks to the super-narrow bezels above and below the phone. Indeed, with a screen border that’s barely there on the right and left hand side as well, the screen on the LG G6 occupies almost all the front panel, a move that makes for a fabulous-looking smartphone, especially with its curved corners. In the hand, it’s a great-feeling handset, bordered by a metal frame and backed with glass that’s curved along the edges. It feels a little like the Samsung Galaxy S7 to hold, and that’s a very good thing. It still has a fingerprint reader that doubles as the power switch and it’s still situated on the rear.

And thats what LG is finally trying to do with the G6. While theres part of me that loves the idea of a modular phone, that fondness comes with reservations. A phone that splits apart to let me add in a host of new features while offering the security of carrying a second battery to swap in is fun and techy, but to the outsider who just wants a phone that doesnt get in the way day-to-day, it wasnt that appealing, especially as LG panicked and gave up on the modular idea almost instantly. The LG has upped its design language to better rival Apple And it seems that LG has finally got the message: the mass-market buyer, the one who doesnt care if a battery is replaceable, is the bigger catch here. Yes, LGs now playing in an identical space to Apple and Samsung without the same marketing spend but its not completely without hope.

We want to make sure that nonpartisan ethic remains at the forefront. The solution, however, is not to have this overly legalistic approach towards censoring people's Facebook pages but talking about why we think it is a good thing to keep our politics out of the foxhole and how that in turn keeps the military above the fray, especially in times of great political discord.

It wasnt just the ubiquitous deification of Trump that was so jarring. It was the degree to which his worldview was accepted, championed and cheered by conservative speakers and attendees with no obvious connection to the new president. Consistently, anti-trade rhetoric drew the loudest ovations, especially when packaged as part of a broader assault on “globalism,” a particular hobbyhorse of Bannon and the Breitbart crew. Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, CPAC’s governing body, swore he wasnt worried about the appearance of Trumpism subjugating the traditional right. “Trump voices that are added to CPAC are wonderful because it will help us win,” he told me. “We have to have more people. We can be a very pristine conservative movement—and be very small and make no difference.” The push for intellectual and ideological diversity is commendable, save for the inconvenient reality that it was nowhere to be found.

8. A wide-angle front-facing camera The wide-angle lens on the back of the LG G5 is a genuinely useful addition, especially as it's an optional one, with a more conventional 16MP sensor also included. It's just a shame that innovation didn't extend to the front of the handset. The LG V10 has two on the front but only one on the back, for the LG G6 we'd like to see two cameras on both the front and back. 9. A brighter always-on display Like the Samsung Galaxy S7, the LG G5 has an always-on screen and in some ways it tops Samsung's offering, as it gives you notifications for all of your apps. Trouble is, it's so dim in this mode that it can be hard to actually see what it's trying to notify you of. Making it brighter could have an impact on the battery life, but it's a problem that we'd like to see solved for the LG G6. 10. A final layer of polish Ultimately there's not a huge amount wrong with the LG G5, but it also just doesn't fully come together as a cohesive whole.

THIS week we get thoughts and views from Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association (Margma) president Denis Low Jau Foo. How has your life experience made you the leader you are today? I was born into a big family, nine brothers and five sisters. Life was very tough especially when your parents are not able to make enough money. So, as a child, we were taught to be independent and that anything that you want and your parents can't afford, you have just had to go out and make some money doing odd jobs after school and weekends. It also makes you think economically. And this is where my business aspect/perspective started a long time ago for me. It also made me realise that knowledge is important and that one needs to read and hear a lot to understand things better and to have a wider perspective of everything. I was fortunate that the public library in Penang was very well equipped with many books touching on many kinds of subjects and stories.

Otherwise, it's a very useful referenceespecially if you are working on a bunch of different bikes and need to learn about different fuel systems. [ Buy ] Motorcycle Handling and Chassis Design by Tony Foale Tony is (in my opinion) a legend in the field of chassis design. He seems to have been working on making bikes handle since before most of us were born. There are lots of free articles on his website and these prompted me to buy his book many years ago. However, be warned: This book is heavy on engineering math. It’s an incredibly interesting read, but it's better if you understand the math. On top of that, at current prices of around $150 it’s expensive. But I would consider it essential if you're interested in building your own frame. Mine is the 2002 edition, but Amazon has the later 2006 edition. Motorcycle Tuning Chassis by John Robinson This is a great book for the racers, as the focus really is making motorcycles go fast around corners.

If you do get a PDK make sure it has the Sport Chrono pack [for its sportier gearshift strategy], and if you want to drive using the paddles, get one with the Sport Design steering wheel [the standard PDK wheel has buttons]. ‘I’d also consider the specials at the end of gen-one 987 production: the Boxster RS60 and the Cayman S Sport. These are great cars, but hard to find. ‘I love the 986 Boxster S, too, especially the Anniversary models at £10,000-12,000.

By now we should all be accustomed to the way that Donald Trump twists almost everything to make it about him -- personally -- and not about whatever issue is at hand. This is especially true when he takes questions from reporters, who may be the only people in his life who consistently challenge him, and even more particularly when the issue is bigotry.

We are happy with their visit,” she said, adding that the home currently houses 45 children, five senior citizens, and eight staff. Thalia Thin, 19, who was crowned the Miss Tourism Queen of the year Malaysia 2016, said she felt satisfied with the visit as she could give back to society. “I’m more privileged than some of them in certain sense, so why not give back to them,” the Taylor’s American Degree Transfer Programme student said.

Unless it’s a terrific example, he’ll probably talk you out of an F355, because the type became over-valued earlier in its life so keenly priced cars can be hard to find, and the early F1 paddle shift gearboxes in most cars are crude by modern standards. The mid-2000s F430 is another good option (prices start around £80k) and there are plenty of them about, although again, he says, six-speed manuals are rare. Over at HR Owen, Thom will probably point you at an entry level, low-miles 2009 California at around £100k (or £109k for a 2011, or £115k for a 2012). It’s Ferrari’s most versatile model, and is ideal as a first Ferrari. Thom especially rates Ferrari’s dual-clutch transmission (DCT) models; the California is the first of these and benefits from the consequent refinement and ease of use. Front-engined cars? Thom recommends the four-wheel-drive FF two-plus-two, although you’re still talking £150k for one of those, and might be better off with an approved 612 Scaglietti (there are a few about) or a 599 if you can stump £30k more and dont need rear seats.
