The furniture designer Karl Zahn is known for his animal-shaped wooden toys and delicate mobiles, but for his recent collaboration with the Brooklyn-based lighting company Roll & Hill he has created two new fixtures: Bounce, a folded disc, suspended from the ceiling, which casts a soft glow projected from a lamp positioned underneath, and Cora, a pendant with eight LEDs and a bronze finish. The pieces debuted at the Milan Furniture Fair and reflect Zahn’s interest in earthy, elemental materials such as walnut and brass.

LG Unveils The G4 With Monster 16 MP Camera And Leather BacksThe G4 is LG’s peak of the line, and it proves. Not only does it have
eradicator specs, but LG has also gone out of its mode to deliver a
three-years-in-the-making trait like LG is garnishing the back of the
phone in actual leather .It’s not unheeded of. Samsung has use
leather-felled plastic on its phones for years, and Motorola proposed a
version of its Moto X in leather also. But for the LG G4, this isn’t
phony leather or some hard-to-get alternative. LG is fully imagines that
selling millions of leather-dressed G4s, although it’s proposing more
conformist plastic backs, too, with any metallic or ceramic end.
NOIDA ROHIT SHARMA उत्तर प्रदेश के नॉएडा में लूट में नाकाम बदमाशो ने ब्यापारी का अपहरण कर मांगी फिरौती। लेकिन पुलिस की सूझबूझ से ब्यापारी सही सलामत ही नहीं बचाया बल्कि तीन अपहरण कर्ताओ को गिरफ्तार कर फिरौती का दो लाख रुपया भी बरामद कर लिया। आप को बता दे नॉएडा के सेक्टर 27 अट्टा मार्केट में आटे का कारोबार करने वाले राजेंदर सिंह अपनी कार से अपने गांव बुलंदशहर जा रहे थे तभी पीछा कर रहे आधा दर्जन से ज्यादा बदमाशो ने सिकंदराबाद के आगे गाड़ी को ओवर टेक कर गाड़ी रोक ली और राजेंदर कुमार को गन पॉइंट पे लेकर 12 लाख रुपये निकालने को कहा जब राजेंदर की गाड़ी और उसकी तलाशी के बावजूद पैसा नहीं मिला तो राजेंदर का बदमाशो ने अपहरण कर 12 लाख रुपये घर से मंगवाने को कहा। बदमाशो की माने तो उन्हें सूचना मिली थी की एक ब्यापारी 12 लाख लेकर बुलंदशहर जा रहा लेकिन बदमाशो को राजेंदर के पास कुछ नहीं मिला लेकिन बदमाशो का वसूल था की विना पैसा लिए वो वापस नहीं जाते इसी लिए उन्होंने अपहरण कर 12 लाख की फिरौती मांगी लेकिन 6 लाख में बात तय हुई
You’ve probably never heard of Huawei. With a brand name that few recognise and which many who do can’t pronounce, the Chinese company has struggled outside developing markets – but that may be about to change.
Its new flagship P8 Android smartphone – thinner than an iPhone 6 – could be about to put Huawei on the map.
As one of the largest mobile infrastructure companies in the world, and known for devices that take advantage of new technologies such as 4G first, Huawei’s now aiming to mirror the success of Google’s Nexus series – a top-end experience at a mid-range price.
The P8 has a rather understated design in aluminium and glass. It looks a little like an iPhone 5 from the back, but also rather resembles the Argos MyTablet with white inlaid glass at the top of the back plate.
Unfortunately the resemblance doesn’t stop there. Despite being thin and well made with smooth sides and a solid back, the finish to the aluminium looks slightly cheap.
The back also sounds hollow when tapped with a finger, which is surprising given that at 6.4mm thick the P8 is one of the thinnest phones going – the iPhone 6 is 6.9mm thick and the Samsung Galaxy S6 6.8mm.
The 5.2in full HD screen fills most of the front, with thin bezels at the sides. It’s bright, crisp and good. It’s not quite up to par with the fantastic quad HD screen fitted to either the LG G4 or Galaxy S6, but is easily as good as similar screens fitted to the HTC One M9, for example.
With a small body and a 5.2in screen, the P8 is one of the most manageable top-end smartphones available at the moment, although people with smaller hands will still struggle to use it one-handed.
Screen: 5.2in full HD LCD (424ppi)
Processor: octa-core Huawei Kirin 930
RAM: 3GB of RAM
Storage: 16GB + microSD card
Operating system: Android 5.0 “Lollipop” with Emotion UI
Camera: 13MP rear camera with OIS, 8MP front-facing camera
Connectivity: Dual-Sim LTE, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS
Dimensions: 144.9 x 72.1 x 6.4mm
Huawei’s own silicon
Like Samsung, Huawei designs and makes its own processors. It’s Kirin 930 has similar specifications to Qualcomm and Samsung’s latest, but with slightly less powerful graphics processors.
The P8 feels snappy, if not quite as quick as the fastest-feeling Android smartphone the Galaxy S6. Performance all round was solid, only stuttering slightly with some graphically heavy gaming.
I never noticed the phone getting overly hot, which is impressive given how thin it is. Equally impressive is how good the battery life was. Performing general duties, including hundreds of push notifications, email, Twitter, music streaming and an hour of browsing, I got a good two days out of the P8 between charges.
I also found it got and maintained a stronger 4G signal than any other smartphone I have tested.
The standard P8 only has 16GB of storage built in, most high-end smartphones now come with 32GB in 2015. It has a microSD card slot for adding more storage for media, but it also doubles as a secondary Sim card slot, allowing users to have two phone numbers and two services attached to one phone.
Dual-Sim support is extremely handy for those with personal and work numbers, saving needing to carry two phones, as well as those traveling and using a local Sim card.
Android, but not as you’d know it
The P8 is an Android smartphone running version 5.0 Lollipop. But Huawei modifies Android to look very different calling it “Emotion UI”.
There is no app drawer, which means that every app is forced onto the homescreen pages, much like an iPhone. The apps can be placed in folders and the homescreens behave like standard Android with moving wallpapers and widgets.
The notification tray looks and behaves differently. Some apps have multiple notifications – Gmail, for instance, clusters all messages together, but a secondary notification shows each one individually.
Various themes are available, which change icons as well as colours and backgrounds. Most app icons have a coloured background, which looks a mess; standard Android uses transparent background instead. Other apps have custom icons, which look a bit warped, such as Instagram.
The P8 also has a few phone management tools baked in for clearing apps from the RAM. With 3GB of RAM installed, they’re a bit of an overkill, but good for those obsessed with cleaning and tweaking.
Another interesting addition is a power monitor that warns you when an app is consuming battery power in the background. It rates apps in milliampere hours – a measure of battery capacity – recommending shutting down any app that uses more than 40mAh when not in use. Again this seems like overkill, but could be useful for those trying to eke out every last hour our battery life and the notifications can be turned off if they become annoying.
The 13-megapixel camera is one of the best currently available. It’s not quite as sharp as the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the LG G4’s camera, but has solid low-light performance and good detail.
The camera app, however, is very iPhone-like. A simple photo selector on the left, with options to enable HDR and a load of other features buried behind a menu.
The front-facing camera does a solid job for selfies, although its beauty mode can create some horrifyingly alien-looking images.
The 16GB version of the Huawei P8 comes in champagne or grey, costing £360, which is around £200 less than most of the competitors, Samsung, LG, Sony, HTC and Apple. Samsung’s mid-range Galaxy A5 costs £349.
The Huawei P8 is a high-end device that costs the same as a mid-range smartphone. It is very thin, light and made of metal, with a solid camera and a decent processor.
It also has dual-Sim capability and good battery life, but it lacks a little polish and its alterations to Android aren’t the best.
With the P8 Huawei has proved that it is a smartphone manufacturer worth paying attention to, and the P8 is certainly worth considering, especially given it costs significantly less than rivals.
Pros: very thin, solid build, decent camera, good battery life and performance
Cons: lack of premium finish to the body, software modifications are a little unpolished and change Android significantly
Google has launched out the advanced for its Messenger App, which was updated last year in November, as well as it is a small but practical with new feature.
The Messenger v1.3 permits to consumers’ for quick answer of messages
exact from the notification panel. After the download, users would
perceive no disparity in the notification ping when a message appears.
On pressing the ‘Reply’ option consumers would see a full screen
quick reply superimpose beside with a dialog box and keyboard at the
base for typing out a reply. Right beneath the dialog box there is as
well an option to unfasten the full conversation in the Messenger tool.
Two pieces with essentially the same mechanism, one vertical, the usual orientation for mobiles, and one in answer to the question “can you make one horizontal?” yes you can. It is true to say that these are mobiles and are in essence very simple but if it was good enough for Alexander Calder then it’s good enough for me.
is going reasonably well, I am having fun being sidetracked away from my own work by other installs and waiting for the panic.
Until we humans grow into superhuman with an ability to communicate with each other through brainwaves, we will have to rely on possibly the last invention of communication technology; mobiles.
Mobiles may be known as a communication device, but does more than communication for us. Therefore, mobiles are more often referred as a smartphone. No doubt about us being straddled between tech age and…
kraftwerk opens up a whole new dimension in freedom and independence when it comes to supplying your mobile electronic devices with energy. Why? Because kraftwerk enables you to generate your own energy using a small, handy device – in such large amounts that you can run your iPhone, tablet, or even your GoPro camera for weeks!
It looks and acts like a battery pack but kraftwerk is actually the first hand-held fuel cell generator that can regenerate energy in less than 3 seconds. And it can power all your mobile devices for weeks.
kraftwerk, which translates to “power station” in German, is the product of eZelleron, an engineering team that spun out of German research firm Fraunhofer Gesellschaft. So far the company has raised almost half its $500,000 goal for kraftwerk in just three days on Kickstarter. Three people have even pledged $10,000 to get distributor rights for the product when it becomes available.
The largest external battery packs will only free you from the grid for so long before you need to plug in and recharge. Kraftwerk isn’t just another battery, even though it might look like one. This tiny 200g device is actually a self-contained fuel cell that runs on standard lighter gas and can charge an iPhone 11 times with just a tiny puff. After opening a Kickstarter campaign in early January, Kraftwerk has almost doubled its $500,000 goal.
Hardware Kickstarters are always a little more worrisome than those for software or services. A lot of things can go wrong in the manufacturing process as a project comes together, but the engineers at eZelleron have already developed the technology and have a working prototype to show off. It only takes three seconds to fill the reservoir in the Kraftwerk, which is much faster than charging a giant lithium-ion battery, but why go back to hydrocarbons?
largeFor all the disadvantages hydrocarbons have, they come with extraordinary energy density. That’s why the cost of renewable energy still hasn’t caught up to good old-fashioned internal combustion. Of course, Kraftwerk is a fuel cell, so it’s not actually burning the lighter gas (sometimes called camping gas LPG fuel). Instead, it’s using a chemical reaction inside the fuel cell to harvest the hydrogen atoms from butane generate power. eZelleron is fond of calling this a personal power plant, which might be grandiose, but not necessarily wrong.
• kraftwerk is your very own portable power plant:
• Amazingly small and highly efficient
• Completely independent of any power grid or wall outlet
• Supplies power reliably – anywhere and at any time
• New and pioneering fuel cell technology
• An invaluable advantage both in everyday life and even when traveling to the ends of the earth
From what the company is saying about the process, Kraftwerk sounds like a very small, efficient solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). The reaction of hydrocarbons (in the form of butane) and oxygen inside the fuel cell gives you power (and a tiny bit of heat), but the exhaust from this system isn’t bad. It’s just water vapor and carbon dioxide, not unlike the exhaust coming from you. It’s apparently also safe to take on an airplane. If the carbon output bothers you, there are eco-friendly LPG fuels available that are made from renewable sources.
You can charge anything that connects over USB with the Kraftwerk, but it only has the one port. That’s probably because the sustained power output is just 2 watts, with peak power of 10 watts. That’s enough to charge a phone or tablet, but some newer devices can accept up to 15 watts with Qualcomm Quick Charge enabled. Capacity is hard to measure compared to lithium-ion cells, but a full tank in the Kraftwerk should give you the equivalent of roughly 20,000mAh. However, you won’t lose anything to lithium-ion inefficiency as you would with a battery.
The Kraftwerk still has a month to go, but it’s closing in on $1 million. This is going to be a big one — all of the early bird deals are gone, so you’re looking at $99 for a single Kraftwerk. It’s pricey, but you can get a lot of efficient power from it — a single can of $5 lighter gas can refill the Kraftwerk a few dozen times. If you jump on this, eZelleron expects to start shipping final units in December 2015.
