Galaxy S11 ‘Final’ Design Reveals Stunning New Camera Design [Updated]

Truculent (if famously accurate) industry insider, Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) has now revealed what he understands to be the ‘final configuration’ of the Galaxy S11’s stunning new quad-camera. Originally mind-boggingly scattered, the new look ties in with the more symmetrical design fellow insider Ice Universe tipped earlier this month.  Noting that his previous renders were “based upon a first stage prototype”, Hemmerstoffer has now the revealed massive rectangular camera hump of the Galaxy S11 will indeed feature a square telephoto lens (expected to house a 48MP sensor with 5x optical zoom which gives the unit its ‘Hubble’ codename) alongside primary (108MP), wide-angle (48MP) and time-of-flight (ToF) sensors.  12/30 Update: @OnLeaks has followed up his initial tweet, revealing that Samsung has made minor adjustments to the shape of the camera module since early prototypes leaked. “[It] is just a tiny bit less wider and a tiny bit more elongated” he states. This mighty array also uses pixel binning technology to create smaller final images with larger 2.4μm pixels for greatly improved low light capabilities. The unit itself is ca...

Will the Tesla Cybertruck be able to beat gas trucks for home power supply?

Gas generators still own the portable, emergency home-backup power space. Ten years ago there was a lot of hope and hype for using all the energy stored inside EVs’ batteries to power your entire house, but it hasn’t come to pass. No EV maker will sell you a bidirectional charger, outside of Japan and a handful of small utility pilots. Meanwhile, the 2020 Ford F-150 will come with the option for its own built-in, onboard gas generator. And aftermarket companies, like Indiana’s Real AC power, offer sleek, chassis-integrated generator systems (pictured above) for internal combustion engine (ICE) trucks. EV makers ceded this space for unknown reasons. But now Tesla CEO Elon Musk has teased a 240V AC power outlet on the Cybertruck, something neither Rivian nor Bollinger have announced. We don’t know how many watts we can expect, though. So will the Tesla Cybertruck finally offer EV enthusiasts a path to navigate societal collapse? Or are we stuck with settling for “head’s up, you’re going to lose power” messages? North American homes, on average, draw slightly above 1kW on idle, but that spikes with appliances like microwaves, electric ovens, and dryers. An electric hot water tank w...

Farm delinquencies rise, market prices stay low across North Iowa, country | Mason City & North Iowa

CERRO GORDO | If there’s been a subtle but disruptive trend in agricultural economics the past few years, it’s been the upward creep of farm loan delinquencies twinned with low market prices for corn and soybeans. At the end of 2015, loan delinquencies (accruing loans that are 30 days or more past due) hovered around 0.20 percent, according to the Farm Credit Administration. In 2016, that number inched up to 0.26 percent of total accruing loans. The next year the number did edge back down but only by 0.1 percent. Farm Credit Services of America, which operates 42 retail offices within Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming, hasn’t released more up-to-date numbers for its area, but there is concern from insiders and agriculture businessman that things will get worse across multiple sectors. Through the end of September 2018: Nonaccrual loans (loans 90 days past due still accruing interest) stood at 82.15 percent (compared to 81.18 percent in 2017) and total delinquencies as a percent of total loans and interest was at 0.57 percent (down by .05 percent from 2017). In actual dollar amounts, that’s $162,626 for loans 30 or more days past due. Those “...

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free Mobile, dont la part de marché au 3e trimestre atteint 11% avec 7,435 millions d’abonnés. Le groupe Iliad, maison-mère de Free, se porte toujours aussi bien. Au 3e trimestre, son chiffre d’affaires a atteint 944,2 millions d’euros, soit une hausse d’un peu plus de 15% sur un an. Sur les 9 premiers mois de 2013, la croissance de l’opérateur est de 22,5% à 2,7 milliards d’euros de CA. C’est dans le secteur de la téléphonie mobile que la croissance est la plus forte au dernier trimestre (+34,7%), avec 321 millions de chiffre d’affaires dégagés. Free Mobile ne communique en revanche pas sur sa rentabilité. En termes de conquête, le 4e opérateur mobile a attiré 640.000 nouveaux abonnés, portant le parc total de clients de Free Mobile à 7,435 millions. Cela représente 11% de part de marché. « Le Groupe a accéléré sa conquête d’abonnés sur les utilisateurs ayant une consommation modérée (forfait mobile à 2€/mois) » commente Iliad. Mais si Free a continué de gagner massivement des clients, Reuters précise néanmoins qu’il s’agit du « nombre de conquêtes d’abonnés le plus faible depu...

CBD Oil UK: The Best CBD Oil Brands In The UK (2020)

CBD oil is rapidly becoming a popular self-care alternative to traditional pills and doctor visits. But despite its numerous health advantages and benefits, CBD oils are still ill-understood by many of the public in the United Kingdom, making it difficult to determine which CBD oils provide the best benefits and which you should spend your time and money on. To that end, we’ve reviewed the 7 best CBD oils in the UK to provide you with a plethora of options for your needs. Whether you enjoy CBD as a general relaxant or take it for a specific health purpose, we’re confident that there’s a great oil for you waiting just below. But first, let’s go over what CBD is and why it’s become so popular. Although it’s just one of over 100 compounds (also known as cannabinoids) found in the hemp plant, CBD oil is one of the most important. The name “CBD” is short for cannabidiol, and it’s derived mainly from the flowers, leaves, stem and stalks of the hemp plant. CBD’s raw, concentrated form is extracted from the plant, then diluted sharply with a carrier oil, like hemp seed oil or coconut oil. Though CBD does contain a very small amount (0.2%) of the primary psychoactive compound THC, it’s n...

December 2, 2019 — Smartphones are evolving into new point-of-care (POC) diagnostic tools, changing the way

December 2, 2019 — Smartphones are evolving into new point-of-care (POC) diagnostic tools, changing the way many common health conditions are initially diagnosed. The technical capabilities of these phones have become so advanced that they can compete with technology once thought to be only the domain of physicians’ offices and hospitals. Research groups and startup companies are developing apps and technology that turn smartphones into tools that can diagnose eye disease, perform home-based urinalysis, diagnose ear infections and respiratory disease, and help women learn about their reproductive health. For example, engineering scientists at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, developed a way to use a smartphone’s camera to help women with family planning and reproductive health monitoring. Researcher Zhendong Cao took advantage of how the camera can distinguish up to 16 million colors and perform the same kind of diagnostic testing as a microplate reader. One indicator of a woman’s reproductive health that could be tested was estrogen. Cao changed the camera software so that it analyzed the colored pixels and ultraviolet light...

Dell has made some of the very best laptops in the business – most often, these

Dell has made some of the very best laptops in the business – most often, these are members of the premium consumer XPS range. Even so, an addition to the much more business- and security-focused Latitude family will also be worth a look – and the Latitude 5500 is one of the best-specced models you can get, at least without tipping over into the truly premium 7000 series. At 359mm wide and 20mm deep when closed, this is a chunky notebook by modern standards. That does mean room for a number pad next to the keyboard, which can be very helpful for number-crunching work, but considering both the dimensions and the 1.8kg weight it’s the kind of laptop we’d rather leave in a locker than carry home each night. Even so, it’s been put together well enough. With the exception of the plastic underside, there’s aluminium bodywork throughout, minimal flex to the screen and a firm hinge. Inkeeping with the Latitude series’ proclivity for security, it also gives you a choice of biometric sign-in options. First is the webcam, which is compatible with Windows Hello for facial recognition. This worked just about instantaneously for us, even when wearing ...

Dell’s Reveals OptiPlex 7070 Ultra: Putting a Modular PC In A Monitor Stand

All-in-one desktop PCs have a number of advantages compared to regular desktop machines when it comes to dimensions, style, lack of cable clutter, and other. Their main drawbacks are tight integration that an AIO implies, particularly the need to fully embed a system behind a monitor or within the base of a monitor, resulting in AIO PCs living up the name. Dell, however, has decided to take a different approach with their new OptiPlex 7070 Ultra. The AIO system not only puts the “system” component in a new place – the “back” of a monitor stand – but Dell has made the system component modular, allowng system modules to be swapped in and out as needed, and has further done the same for the display panel as well. Dell’s modular AIO PC platform consists of several basic components: a compute module that packs CPU, memory, and storage; a display stand that can house the compute module; and a monitor with VESA 100 mounts. In fact, because the display stand is just a shell to hold and mount parts, the compute modules can be attached to any display even without a stand from Dell. The first compute module that Dell intends to offer is the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, a 0....

See Emma Stone’s pearl engagement ring from Dave McCary Page Six Style New York Post Page Six Style Decider

“SNL” segment director Dave McCary announced on Wednesday that he and Emma Stone are engaged, sharing a photo of the happy couple — and the Oscar winner’s ring — on Instagram. The 31-year-old actress’ new sparkler is the Kataoka Winter Pearl Ring from hip NYC jewelry shop Catbird, which retails for $4,780. Made in Japan, the unique design features an 8mm untreated Akoya pearl in place of a traditional diamond, which is set on a solid 18k gold band studded with tiny stones in a snowflake motif — a perfect pick for a winter engagement. A favorite of celebrities like Meghan Markle, Taylor Swift and Emma Watson, Catbird is famous for its dainty, feminine gold and diamond pieces and stacking rings. Stone isn’t alone in choosing an unconventional design; according to Kathryn Money from Brilliant Earth, non-diamond center stones are gaining popularity. “Gemstone engagement rings are a distinctive choice that has remained popular among couples and celebrities. Kate Middleton, Penelope Cruz and Jessica Simpson all sport engagement rings featuring gemstones,” Money told Page Six Style. “A recent study from Brilliant Earth found that one in five adults would prefer an engagement ring featu...
