In its mixed bag of second quarter results, HP reported flat notebook revenue, which was actually one of the brighter spots. (In comparison, desktop revenue were down 18 percent.) No doubt recent events have kept notebook sales afloat, and HP is looking to capitalize on the telecommuting surge with its announcement of a fleet of new business laptops, including a refresh of its EliteBook lineup and an expansion of the ZBook mobile workstation family. … [Read more...] about HP launches new EliteBook laptops, ZBook Firefly mobile workstations

Moov wasn't kidding about the head being a good place to capture heart rate. The Moov HR was always within 5 BPM of the Apple Watch Series 2's heart rate monitor. More often, its measurements were within 2 BPM of Apple's device. I'm also not surprised it did not lose signal during a workout (even the Apple Watch does that on occasion) because there's nowhere for the module to move while it's underneath a tight headband. Wrist-bound heart rate monitors move around a lot, and that can cause inaccuracy, which is why wearing them tightly to minimize movement is so important. So while there's more guesswork involved when placing the Moov HR module properly on your head, you won't have to readjust it after it's in position. … [Read more...] about Moov HR review: Everyone should wear heart rate monitors on their heads
Cranking the Volta’s shaft drive feels like pedaling a normal bike — it’s the Zehus Bike+ motor that takes some getting used to. To turn it on, you have to get the bike moving at a walking pace of at least 5 km/h (about 3 mph). Once up to speed, the Bitride companion app will automatically link to the Bike+ motor over Bluetooth. To turn on motor assistance, you have to get up to at least 10 km/h and then pedal backward for three revolutions. This same pedal movement also activates the regenerative braking function to slow the bike down. The longer you backpedal, the more the bike’s speed is converted into energy to recharge the battery. The braking is very gradual. Volta is fitted with hydraulic brakes if you need to stop. … [Read more...] about Byar Volta is a shaft-driven e-bike that might never need charging
Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) measures how quickly the page’s “main content” loads — the bulk of the text or image the page is serving up First Input Delay (FID) measures how quickly the page reacts when you first click on something on the page Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) measures when stuff jumps around on the page — for instance, if ads rearrange the text you’re trying to read They’re measurable in ways that other page experiences might not be, though Google says it may add more metrics to that list over time. They notably don’t include references to ad tracking, though the Chrome team has recently stepped up its campaign against ads that could drain your battery. … [Read more...] about Google search results will take ‘page experience’ into account next year
Around the world, over 30 digital contact-tracing systems are in the works, and for very good reasons put forward by experts. An app can ramp up the speed at which users are warned, and alert those at risk even before they show symptoms and become infectious. The technology can also fill in the gaps of manual contact-tracing: you wouldn't remember, and let alone know the name, of the person you stood next to on the bus, or queued after outside the supermarket. A Bluetooth connection, however, could find them out in no time. … [Read more...] about Contact-tracing app: How much difference will it really make?
