Microsoft Surface Neo: release date, news and features

By | October 22nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Microsoft has just unveiled Surface Neo, the much-rumored dual-screen laptop, at its big October press event in New York.

As you might already know, Neo means ‘new’ (being derived from Greek), and this name is undoubtedly Microsoft’s way of exhibiting to us just how fresh and groundbreaking the Surface Neo is.

Though let’s face it, when first hearing the name, nobody thinks of Greece, and instead everybody thinks of The Matrix. And of course, that imparts the device with an instant spoonful of ‘cool’, as it were.… Read the full article

Intel’s curious “The Element” shows up insides a teardown of its latest mini-computer

By | October 22nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Earlier this year, Intel showed off the NUC Compute Element, previously known simply as The Element, and it was one of the best PC components at Computex. But, it was unclear just what sort of product we'd see built around it. Now, the details are starting to come together.

In a recent teardown from Chinese form KoolShare, spotted by Tom's Hardware, we've seen a glimpse of something called "The Element" inside Intel's upcoming NUC 9 extreme. 

By all outward appearances, the NUC 9 Extreme is a fairly straightforward computer, albeit a small one.… Read the full article

IBM questions Google quantum computing claims

By | October 22nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

In a draft paper which was accidentally leaked recently, Google claimed that it had reached “quantum supremacy” but now IBM has publicly questioned those claims in a blog post of its own.

Quantum supremacy is a concept which was originally put forth by Caltech professor John Preskill and in order to reach it, a company would need to demonstrate that a quantum computer could do something that today's classical computers cannot.

In its blog post, IBM's quantum team said that Google's claim of quantum supremacy was flawed because its Sycamore quantum processor had not yet exceeded the capabilities of classical computers, saying:

“Because the original meaning of the term “quantum supremacy,” as proposed by John Preskill in 2012, was to describe the point where quantum computers can do things that classical computers can’t, this threshold has not been met.”

Quantum computer vs supercomputer 

The leaked draft of the Google paper that recently appeared online explained that the company had posed a statistical math problem to its own prototype quantum processor called Sycamore and the world's fastest supercomputer called Summit at the Oak Ridge National Lab.… Read the full article

This could be Apple’s iPhone 12 plan to minimize the notch

By | October 22nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Apple is allegedly testing new Face ID prototypes with new optics – and some are small enough that the company may shrink the notch on its future phones, which could include the upcoming iPhone 12 series.

Apple is working on multiple variations of Face ID components, according to leaker Ben Geskin with follow-up information from PhoneArena. This includes lenses that will make notches smaller – or potentially even tiny enough to fit in the phone’s top bezel. 

What’s more, the new Face ID parts could be faster and more secure – as well as enable scanning from varying angles, including while laying flat. 

The different – and perhaps smaller – notch would only make it to the (assumedly named) iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.… Read the full article

I’ve said it before, but it’s still true, that whenever we have a new video format the movie studios eagerly line up to sell us our favorites all over again—from VHS tape to Laserdisc to DVD to Blu-ray. But today, with movie streaming swamping video discs sales, the line of consumers eager to replace their existing discs is now shorter than ever.
