Samsung Galaxy Note 10 could be a smartphone without buttons, but it will not be

And good! Do you remember the concept of Meizu Zero ? The smartphone was a minimalistic minimal body. He did not have physical buttons because he used panels to react to squeezing. He did not have a charging port because he only used wireless charging. There were no openings for speakers, because the loudspeaker was a screen. He did not have a minijack, but this is not a big surprise. A similar, but not so extreme, way was to go Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Just yesterday leaks said that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will not have any buttons. Samsung had to replace them with a squeeze-sensitive frame, similar to the HTC and Pixelach smartphones. Note 10 was also supposed to be deprived of Minijack. Today we know that some of these revelations will not come into effect. According to leaker @UniverseIce , Samsung tested Note 10 variant without buttons, but the device did not pass internal tests. The final vers

Imagine that Wi-Fi routers are illegal. Nightmare? Until now this was the case in Cuba

Your own Wi-Fi in Cuba will finally be legal. The island authorities have legalized private Wi-Fi networks and introduced permission to import routers. No internet or illegal antennas, smuggled equipment and translation of pissed off tourists that you can not give them a password for Wi-Fi, because Wi-Fi in the hotel is simply not there - all this is about to go away to the past. In Cuba, the era of very limited Internet access is ending. The era only begins a little limited . Internet? Who needs the internet in communist paradise? The world of Wi-Fi benefits can be enjoyed for twenty years. From the perspective of the government of Cuba, everything looks different. If it is known that it is worth only to listen to the leader and his party, the only legitimate news is provided by governmental media, and rampant American propaganda is rampant, you can actually conclude that this whole internet is seriously overrated. Slowly, however, they even see that the libera

Polish scientists have a great idea for detecting skin cancer. This is the T-Skin project

Polish scientists have something to be proud of. Thanks to their knowledge and experience, a device for non-invasive and instant detection of neoplastic lesions on the skin may soon be created. The T-SKIN project , because of it, received funding in the ninth edition of the LIDER program organized by the National Center for Research and Development. A team of dr inż. Works on the device. Agnieszka Siemion from the Faculty of Physics, Warsaw University of Technology. What is T-Skin? The device will be based on optical modules containing diffraction structures. The phenomenon of diffraction is that the wave, when encountering an obstacle, bends, and thus - the direction of its propagation changes. Using this feature, Polish scientists want to create an illumination and skin imaging system (in this way it will be possible to identify tissues with neoplastic changes) and to focus radiation in a spot with high power density. The radiation will be reflected at differ

My girlfriend is sitting in front of a huge TV and ... watching a movie on a smartphone

I enter the apartment, at first glance, everything is fine. My better half sits in the living room and watches the show. However, some detail does not suit me. Well, despite the fact that there is a large 65-inch TV in front of it, despite the 14-inch laptop lying next to it, even though it has an iPad at its fingertips, it prefers to watch the series on his smartphone. Unfortunately, I can not understand it. To avoid it, I often watch the video content on my smartphone. I do, however, in a longer journey or public transport, or in the queue to the doctor or in the bedroom. In short, where I do not have easy access to my own TV with great home cinema. In the meantime, it turns out that my girl rejects it in the name ... well, what? Convenience? After all, it can transfer the watched series to a bigger screen with one icon on your smartphone. Mobility? After all, he is sitting at home, and progress in the screen synchronizes between the devices. Nothing prevents h

Pearls from the past: Disney s Hercules forced me to cry, covered with a demo on PSX. Surprising how few people know this game

Children are terrible. They do not have a developed social sensitivity. They can be ruthless for their peers. They also blackmail emotionally. I used such blackmail myself, trying to force the poor, beloved parents of Disney's Hercules. Yes, I fixed myself on the demo of a great platformer, that getting the full version was a matter of life or death for me. Although 20 years have passed, I remember it today. A black disc, which when inserted into the drive the first PlayStation displayed a psychedelic menu on the CRT TV. This is called Demo One - a collection of demo versions included on the CD included in the console. Demos varied depending on the region and date of purchase of the console. I had several Demo One albums in the collection, but I particularly remember the fifth revision, burned to the Polish market in Austria. It was thanks to this disc that I discovered Hercules. On the screen dread horrible graphic spots on the fashion of the former Windows

What is the cost of Sony Xperia 1? We check prices in stores and operators

The new smartphone Sony, or Xperia 1, goes to the first stores. We check how much the device costs in free sale and what prices have been prepared by the operators. We also look at pre-sales bonuses. Xperia 1 is this year's top Sony smartphone. The device was first presented a few months ago at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona. Later, we could admire a phenomenal screen with 21: 9 proportions during this year's edition of the Polish Electronics Show . Now is the time for its official premiere, which will take place in just over a week. Sony Xperia 1 - prices The new smartphone is another top model in the offer of the Japanese manufacturer. It is not surprising that the company priced it really high - although it did not reach the level of competition in the form of Apple or Samsung. The recommended price for the Xperia 1 phone is PLN 3999. So much will have to pay for the device on June 7, 2019, when it will officially go on sale. Xperia 1

Read while sitting. The new robots of iRobot cost almost PLN 10,000

Despite the fact that since the premiere of Roomba i7 and i7 + models passed less than a year, iRobot does not slow down the pace and showed the next generation of their devices. The Roomba S9 + vacuuming robot and the Braava Jet M6 mopping robot are appliances that can shock not only by their capabilities but also by high prices. iRobot Roomba S9 + at first glance stands out above all in shape. We do not deal here with a round casing known from other Roomba robots, but with a D-shaped one. Thus, the latest model of the iRobot more than its predecessors resembles competitors from the Electrolux or Neato stables . Antoine Garcia, an engineer from iRobot, whom I had the opportunity to talk to, claims, however, that we are not dealing with copying the competition because the US company patented a D-shaped robot already in 2009. What's more, the company still thinks that round robots they are better than others because they have no problems with entering and le

He waited a long time. The Boeing boss admitted that the company made a mistake

From March, Boeing 737 Max do not fly . Airplanes were grounded when the world learned about another disaster involving this model. Two of the same machines falling in just five months are a lot. Too much to just believe that everything is okay and as if you can never give up another Max. In total, 342 people lost their lives in both disasters. The first tragically interrupted flight from Jakarta to Sumatra took place in October 2018, the second took place already in 2019, in March . Both accidents were similar to each other. In both specialists, the sources of the problem are seen in the malfunctioning of one of the angle of attack sensors. Erroneous readings from it triggered the MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System), which was first introduced in 737 Max , and which almost no one heard before the October catastrophe. Misled by bad readings, the system tried to correct the position of the aircraft in such a way that both machines collapsed. Bo

One lock with Huaweia removed - Mate 20 Pro returns to the Android Q test program

Google has restored the Mate 20 Pro smartphone to the list of devices that will access the Android Q beta. This is another light in the tunnel for Huaweia. Huawei has a problem. As a result of the decision of the President of the United States, American companies can not do business with him. Within a few days of Donald Trump's signature, a serious document from the Chinese giant turned in principle to all significant Western partners - not just from America. The situation of the Huawei brand is at least dramatic It was true that at first the company was to be cut off from Western software and equipment overnight, but the United States graciously gave it a 90-day transition period . This did not change the fact that the Chinese had to start thinking about the future, in which they do not have access to Android and Windows systems, or to the technology of such companies as Intel, Qualcoom or ARM . Huawei began to lose not only Western partners, but he was cu

Stop downloading Firefox. Google will not block adblocks in the Chrome browser at all

With the speed of a cat running into a bowl of food after a 15-minute hunger, the world went round the news that Google would block modern adblockers in the Chrome browser . Relax - it will not block. The Chromium engine development team published a draft release at the beginning of the year (DRAFT) of a document describing the planned changes to the API available to developers of extensions for Chrome. This document, known as the V3 Manifesto, aroused a lot of controversy due to the proposed changes, in particular those concerning the previous chrome.webRequest implementation. I will not pretend to understand what it means, which is why I give my voice to Hubert Taler , a programmer who writes for Spider's Web: chrome.webRequest has been used so far by the creators of ad blockers (though not only - it's an API that has many other applications). In short, it allows you to take over the network query (request) and handle it in its own way - login, redire

The Sony Xperia 1 is already in our hands. Feel that it is a smartphone from the top shelf

The premiere of Sony Xperia 1 is behind us and the device came to us for testing. See how it works in practice. This is our first day with Sony Xperia 1, but you can see that the tests will be pleasant. Xperia 1 is a new flagship smartphone, which - as the name suggests - is to be number one on offer. The smartphone is distinguished not only by the top specification, but also the splendid OLED 4K screen and three cameras. Let's start with how the device is in the palm of your hand. The Sony Xperia 1 is not as big as it might seem Looking at the specification, you can come to the conclusion that the Sony Xperia 1 is a huge smartphone. A 6.5-inch screen on paper sounds like a monster that's closer to the tablet than to a smartphone. Nothing could be more wrong. Xperia 1 is certainly a large smartphone, but thanks to the extended screen with the aspect ratio of 21: 9, the device is not as big as it might seem. It is long, definitely longer than other sm
