Folding phones are finally here. So what's the point in them?

Adaptable presentation innovation is on the cusp of turning into a Very Big Deal in the tech business, in showcasing and research terms, if nothing else.

Samsung's driving the field with regards to PR buzz, however adaptable presentation creator Royole was the main organization to get a collapsing telephone under the control of the tech press, Xiaomi has quite recently prodded its new model and LG's good to go to dispatch a top of the line TV that folds down into a container incorporated with its base, which serves as a Dolby Atmos sound bar.

Producers clearly think adaptable is a fabulous thought, yet the squeezing question is how much true intrigue the equipment truly has.

Matthew Cockerill, inventive executive and head of studio London at Swift Creatives, says that, past the undeniable advantage of putting greater cell phones in our pockets, "with an incipient innovation there are in every case a bigger number of inquiries than answers. This innovation is a development…

Lenovo Smart Clock mit Google Assistent – CES 2019

In a sense, Lenovo is double-tracked at this year's CES. While the group shows on the one hand new tablets with Amazon Alexa - whereby the assistant is retrofitted here by dock - there is on the other side a smart clock for your own four walls with the Google Assistant. Lenovo deliberately takes a different route and shows a device for the nightstand or the side board and no smartwatch.

The Smart Clock can be controlled on the one hand via touch, on the other hand also via voice. So you can hear music via "Hey Google", set alarms, check your Smarthome or even check your calendar or your e-mails. The watch offers many features in a comparatively small case and a - spoiler - for me surprisingly low price.

Let's start with the size. Measuring 11 x 8 x 8 cm, the back-flattening clock features a 4-inch IPS display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. You can operate the watch via your finger. The watch weighs 328 grams.

Rolls-Royce Ghost - the time machine

Is the most expensive car automatically the best? When you play a round of auto quartet, the answer to that question is pretty simple. For most of the time, the expensive exotic cars are the ones with which you can get the most stitches. If you look at the pure data of the Rolls-Royce Ghost, this certainly does not have the worst chances for the quartet. But how is the Rolls-Royce Ghost in reality? We had the opportunity to test the Ghost for two weeks to answer that question.

Specifications Rolls-Royce Ghost
Let's start with the data that is most important to the auto quartet, even though on closer inspection they actually do not say much about the car - as we'll see later in this article.

The Ghost is a big car. With dimensions of 5.4 x 1.95 x 1.5 m (L / W / H) and its design, it reminds a little of a motor yacht. Also, the curb weight of 2,500 kg makes it clear that it is a car from a different class. It is powered by a 6.6 Lite 12-cylinder engine with 570 hp and a torque o…
