Dell’s New Commercial PC Lineup Helps Bring Ideas to Life

first_img1Based on Mar 2016 Principled Technologies test report, “Dell SupportAssist Provided Proactive Support for Hard Drive Failure”, commissioned by Dell. Testing conducted in the United States. Actual results will vary. Full report: http://facts.pt/Cr3tEy CES has seen many “world firsts” over 50 years, and at #ces2017 we’re doing our part to keep that history going with more than 25 new PC innovations that will enable our customers worldwide to unleash their creative potential and bring fantastic new ideas to life.Prior to the holidays, I met with dozens of media and analysts so they could preview the new devices. I knew that we had a great lineup of products to unveil, but was pleasantly surprised at the enthusiastic reaction we received. Several commented that they’re clearly seeing the benefits of Dell’s privatization shining through in this latest batch of new products. Because we no longer need to worry about justifying our product development expenditures to Wall Street, we can push the envelope on product design and take the time we need to bring new systems to market that we know will exceed our customers’ expectations.The latest result is an updated commercial PC portfolio that incorporates the best aspects of our thin and light consumer product designs without compromising on the security, manageability and productivity demanded by our commercial customers. Our upgraded selection of Latitude and OptiPlex business products include all-new designs that not only meet today’s business needs, they’ll also help address tomorrow’s evolving workplace challenges. We’ve refreshed our entire commercial portfolio with 7th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors, updated professional graphics options throughout the portfolio, and maintained our industry lead in delivering the world’s most secure and manageable PCs. Our lineup also provides the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C connectivity options for extremely fast data connections and power provided through a single cable.“Intel and Dell have a long history of delivering amazing computing experiences for both consumers and businesses,” said Navin Shenoy, SVP and GM of Intel Client Computing Group. “We’re excited to see the performance, responsiveness, and reliability of 7th Gen Intel Core and Intel Xeon processors on display across Dell’s new lineup of laptops, desktops, and workstations.”Latitude: Inspired by XPS, Tailored for ProfessionalsWith an emphasis on creating beautiful products that people will be proud to carry, the new Latitude ultrabooks and 2-in-1s are not only sexy, they also deliver extremely high performance.For the ultimate “no wires” experience, we’re previewing at CES the new Latitude 7285 2-in-1 with WiTricity magnetic resonance wireless charging capabilities and WiGig docking. That means you can move quickly between meetings without the hassle of hooking up power cords and other cables at every stop. Grab the Latitude 7285 2-in-1 and immediately walk away from your desk without disengaging any wires or a physical dock. Return to your desk, set the Latitude 2-in-1 on the power mat, and your PC will begin charging immediately. Also, if you take advantage of a WiGig dock, your content will appear simultaneously on your external display. We believe the Latitude 7285 is the world’s most versatile 2-in-1 because it can be used as a traditional notebook or as a tablet in either detached or 360 degree convertible mode giving owners incredibly flexible options for how they prefer to work. We’ll have more to share about this incredible device during Dell EMC World in May, so stay tuned for more details.“Dell continues their drive to be first to market with relevant new technology. This collaboration between Dell and WiTricity is making the wireless workplace a reality for customers around the globe,” said Alex Gruzen, CEO, WiTricity. “The Dell Latitude 7285 2-in-1 not only enables a more productive working environment, but accelerates establishment of a resonance-enabled wireless charging ecosystem.”We’re also introducing the Latitude 5285 2-in-1, the world’s most secure and manageable 2-in-1.

World Athletics to rule on Russia ahead of Olympics

first_imgYevgeny Yurchenko is the new head of the Russian athletics federation Loading… World Athletics is to decide Thursday whether to start the procedure of reinstating the new-look Russian athletics federation, as well as initiating the process to allow Russian athletes who test clean to compete under a neutral banner at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. High jumper Mariya Lasitskene has attacked Russia’s handling of the doping crisis Russia has been suspended by World Athletics (then known as the IAAF) since 2015 over repeated doping scandals – a ban upheld 12 times – and has been fighting for readmission. The last report by World Athletics’ Task Force, in November, led to its decision-making Council suspending the process of reinstating RUSAF over charges against its officials that they obstructed an anti-doping investigation. The Council also put a freeze on the system of allowing Russian athletes to compete as “Authorised Neutral Athletes”. Those decisions prompted wholesale change at RUSAF, which has a newly-appointed head in Yevgeny Yurchenko.Advertisement Coe, Yurchenko said, “will initiate the process of issuing to Russian athletes neutral status permits for their participation in international tournaments”, with RUSAF’s membership reinstatement with World Athletics “set to be launched”.That promises to be good news for three-time high-jump world champion Mariya Lasitskene, who has been vocal in her criticism of the former RUSAF regime for its handling of the scandal.Lasitskene, pole vault world champion Angelica Sidorova and men’s 110m metres hurdles star Sergey Shubenkov held a meeting with Coe last week, reportedly on relaunching the so-called “ANA scheme”, which allows eligible Russian athletes to compete as neutrals at events.Moscow’s case has been made more complicated after the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in December imposed a four-year ban from all international sporting competitions on Russia over what it considers a state-sponsored programme of doping, a suspension the country took to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).CAS, the world’s highest sporting court, will now have to decide whether to confirm the WADA ban, or listen to Russia’s case against the sanction. A ruling is not expected before May, with the Tokyo Olympics scheduled to start on July 24, in just 134 days.The International Olympic Committee said CAS had to make a clear-cut decision, with no room for “any kind of interpretation”, over whether Russia was to be banned not just from Tokyo, but also the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing and the 2022 football World Cup in Qatar.

In one of his first conciliatory moves in the stand-off, Yurchenko sent two letters to World Athletics, the first “concerning our cooperation and in regard to scandalous situations, which had left an impact on our relations for many years”. Yurchenko said he had agreed with accusations made by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) against RUSAF on the wrongdoings in the case of high jumper Danil Lysenko, in which “forged documents and false explanations” were provided as an alibi to his whereabouts, as required by anti-doping rules. In January, the AIU, the independent anti-doping watchdog for track and field, recommended World Athletics maintain the exclusion of RUSAF and the freeze on Russian athletes competing under a neutral flag unless it failed to provide evidence in the Lysenko case, which had proved to be a tipping point. – Negative consequences – Yurchenko, who also apologised for the negative consequences from the Lysenko case, said his second letter was sent to World Athletics chief Sebastian Coe.last_img read more

Rotary to host march for international peace

first_imgThe day is meant to be an opportunity to make peace in our own personal relationships, as well as to reflect on and take action to end the larger conflicts of our time. Participants are encouraged to gather at the Northern Alberta Railways Park at 11:15 a.m., where acting mayor Bud Powell will read a proclamation on behalf of the City of Dawson Creek. The march will then proceed to Peace Park, where students and teachers from Notre Dame School will perform the “Song of Peace.” A “Peace Prayer” will then be read, followed by the raising of the United Nations flag.Rotarian Fred Feddema said the local clubs have recognized the International Day of Peace with an event for the last 10 years or so.“One of Rotary’s ideals is to foster fellowship and good will throughout the world, and so peace is one of the avenues we try to promote,” he said. “We try to encourage peace amongst ourselves and our neighbours, and certainly other countries.”- Advertisement -Peace Park was built by the Dawson Creek Beautification Committee as a tribute to international peace.The International Day of Peace, or “Peace Day,” was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly, and the first Peace Day was celebrated in September, 1982. In 2002, the General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace.Peace Day is celebrated by millions worldwide with events ranging in scale from private gatherings to public concerts and forums. The public is encouraged to participate by doing something as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation, or by getting involved in larger events.Advertisementlast_img read more
