Moto G7 Plus leaked again, this time revealing 27W fast charging support, red colour option

first_imgThere have been so many leaks and reports on the Moto G7 series that almost nothing is left to the imagination. Earlier this week, some hands-on images of the Moto G7 Plus leaked out that showed off the waterdrop display and dual cameras. Now, we have yet another set of leaked images that give us a few more key details about the upcoming phone. It seems the G7 Plus will come with a 27W TurboPower fast charging support, which is quite interesting.A 27W fast charging support would be a major jump compared to current Moto phones that support TurboPower charging. This info is mentioned on the sticker on the Moto G7 Plus taken out of the retail box, leaked by TudoCelular. The box and unit shown in the live images seem pretty legit, but these are still leaks and they should be taken with a pinch of salt. The live images once again show off the Moto G7 Plus’ waterdrop display on the front, which sees thinner bezels all around and a droplet notch. The glass back panel is shown in a deep red colour, which could be one of the colour options. The rear panel once again gives us a good look at the dual camera system and the fingerprint sensor embedded in the Moto batwing logo.The retail box also mentions that the 16MP main camera on the back will get OIS support, which is always nice to hear. This along with a “faster” fast charging support sound like interesting upgrades to the Moto G line. There is no information yet on whether the same features can be expected on the regular Moto G7 as well.advertisementThe Moto G7 Plus is said to sport a 6.2-inch display with a FHD+ resolution. It will be powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 chipset with up to 6GB of RAM. The retail box mentions 4GB of RAM, which is likely the base mode. A 16MP + 5MP dual camera system is expected on the back, while the front will see an 8MP camera, as per past reports. Rumours say the Moto G7 Plus will come with a 3,000mAh battery, which seems unlikely for a Plus-sized model. A capacity between 3,500mAh to 4,000mAh sounds more plausible.Motorola is set to announce the Moto G7 Plus along with the Moto G7, G7 Play and G7 Power on February 7 at an event in Brazil. The phones should make their way to India soon after.ALSO READ | New Moto G7 Plus live images show off waterdrop display, dual camerasALSO READ | Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Play and G7 Power full specs and design revealed on Motorola’s websitelast_img read more

GAME PREVIEW HD Sevilla celebrate v LiverpoolBarcelona and Sevilla starred in a number of unforgettable clashes last season, with Jorge Sampaoli on the Andalucians’ bench and imposing a fast and furious playing style to help them into the Champions League.Neither Sampaoli nor Luis Enrique will be there on Saturday, but a similar game can be expected at Camp Nou. Sevilla’s big problem since Berizzo replaced his compatriot has come in front of goal. Plenty of chances have been created but the likes of Wissan Ben-Yedder and Luis Muriel have been wasteful, leaving Sevilla with just 11 goals from their opening 10 games. That is less than Lionel Messi alone has scored in La Liga, but Valverde will nevertheless be wary against a team that, when in form, is capable of giving any side in Europe a rough 90 minutes. Barca’s eyes, meanwhile, will be fixed on Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan has endured a rotten patch of form so far this season, but his quality is undeniable and it should only be a matter of time before the goals return. Valverde and all of Barca will be hoping that day is Saturday, as they seek three points that would prove great evidence of the Catalans’ title credentials even at this early stage.last_img read more

ESPN Analyst Thinks Alabama, LSU Look Like Big 12 Teams

first_imgAlabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa throws a pass against Duke.ATLANTA, GEORGIA – AUGUST 31: Tua Tagovailoa #13 of the Alabama Crimson Tide warms up prior to facing the Duke Blue Devils at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on August 31, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)If you watch a given NFL game in 2019, you’ll probably see and hear about the influence of the spread and air raid offense, which has taken a serious foothold in the Big 12. That influence is being felt in the SEC as well, even with programs known best for power in the trenches, like Alabama and LSU.Last year, ‘Bama turned the offense over to Tua Tagovailoa. To get all of the elite Crimson Tide weapons on the field around him, you’ll see the team go four-wide, with All-Conference level talent all over the field.LSU’s adaptation is more recent, with the hire of Joe Brady from Sean Payton’s New Orleans Saints staff, to overhaul the long-dormant passing game. All of a sudden, Joe Burrow looks like a Heisman contender, after being a game manager in 2018.The two teams have put the running games on the back-burner as a result. It has been named as a concern for Alabama, which is 55th in the country at 179.67 yards per game. Two years ago, when it won its last national title, Alabama averaged over 250 rushing yards per game. The divide is even bigger for LSU, which averages just 115.33 yards per game on the ground.On ESPN’s “The College Football Podcast with Herbie and Pollack,” former Georgia star David Pollack discussed this shift, wondering if one of these two “Big 12 teams in the SEC” would win the league, or if it will be his alma mater, which has the look of a classic SEC team.Via Saturday Down South:“I’m just curious who’s going to win the SEC,” Pollack said, “is it going to be a Big 12 team or a SEC team? And I say that because when you look at Alabama, and you look at LSU and you look at their styles of play right now: Lack of running game, throw the ball 30-40 times a game. What are we used to seeing that from?“This used to be in the Big 12. That’s what they do. Spread the ball all around and throw it all over the yard. (People used to say), ‘You don’t have a run game, so you don’t deserve to be in the conversation among the best teams.’ Well who’s the difference? Georgia. Georgia’s the old-school SEC team. They’re gonna literally line up with two tights, and they’re gonna smash you in the mouth. They make no bones about it that they’re going to be physical with play action off of it.“Alabama and LSU are pass-first offenses. Completely shifted from what they used to be, so how intriguing is this going to be? We got the Big 12 within the SEC, and it’s going to be really fun.”Some fans won’t like it, but Pollack is sure to note he’s not among them. It may not be “classic SEC football” when Alabama and LSU face off later this year, but given some of the rock fights we’ve seen in that rivalry, it could be a welcome change.[ESPN]last_img read more

They also beat him with a bat or metal bar.“The man’s teenage daughter, who was also in the house at the time of the shooting and beating, was threatened to be shot by one of the violent perpetrators before her mobile phone was taken to prevent her calling for help. An attempt was also made to set fire to items in the house.“The injured man is currently in hospital receiving treatment for the gunshot wounds and head injuries from being beaten.“This a sickeningly vicious shooting and beating which has left this man with serious and potentially life changing injuries, and a young girl severely traumatised.” A teenage girl offered masked gunmen her piggy bank in order to protect her father, a local police force has revealed.Despite her efforts, thugs shot her father through his arms and legs, and beat him up in a “paramilitary-style attack” at the family home in Garvagh, Northern Ireland.He was beaten with a metal bar on Sunday night, and his daughter was also threatened, with the criminals pointing a gun at her and taking her mobile phone so she could not call for help.The local police force revealed that she offered the gunmen her piggybank so they would leave.PSNI Limavady posted on Facebook: “I don’t care what you think about the rights and wrongs of vigilante criminal thugs in OUR streets shooting people, but what about this innocent young teenage girl?”What this article doesn’t tell you is that the thug chased the young girl upstairs and threatened her when she hid. She came out petrified with her Piggy Bank, HER PIGGY BANK! hoping that the men would take it and leave her Dad alone.”Instead they stole her phone and shot her Dad.

This Brian Boru crown was made with unwanted gold and silver and

first_imgATTENDEES OF THE Dublin Horse Show will this week have a chance to visit a specially-commissioned Brian Boru crown.The crown, which was commissioned by Jewels for Cures (JFC), an Irish non-profit organisation raising funds for cancer research, will be displayed in the library of the RDS from Wednesday.The crown was made from discarded gold and silver and was crafted by Sé O’Donoghue and Da Capo Goldsmiths, based on the design of Brian Boru’s crown.The inspiration for the crown came when Alison McCormick, founder and Director of JFC, overcame her own battle with breast cancer. It was made with gold and silver donated by the Irish people and dignitaries including The Rt. Hon. the Lord Inchiquin O’Briain, descendant of Brian Boru, Sir Michael Smurfit and His Serene Highness Prince Albert of Monaco.A Descendancy Scroll will accompany the Crown as it travels around the world allowing visitors to add their name to the scroll and becoming a part of history while making a donation. This vellum scroll will be kept forever as a memorial for our descendants. For a minimum of €100, a person’s name will be added to the Descendancy Scroll and they will be asked to email an A4 biography to be kept with the historic scroll as a legacy for their descendants.Speaking to TheJournal.ie today, Alison says that she hopes to raise €100,000 for cancer research by touring with the crown.“Some people thought it would be awful and full of rubbishy jewellery, but it looks great and the feedback to it has been incredible.“It is due to go to America after the Horse Show, then it is being donated to Irish people, but I want to take it around Ireland for a year before that.“I was surprised by how good the reaction was. You have that bit of stress. But everyone who has seen it loves it.“It will be an important 21st century historical piece.”Read: Poignant 1914 newspaper turns Irish clocks back to WWIlast_img read more

VIP segment leading stronger than expected performance for SKYCITY

first_img Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in August 70% of Macau gaming market driven by 400,000 premium players: brokerage SkyCity sees 900 New Zealand casino workers strike for second straight weekend RelatedPosts Load More New Zealand-based gaming operator SKYCITY Entertainment Group says it expects to record better than expected revenue in the six months to 31 December 2018 due to strong growth in its International VIP segment and improved performance at flagship property SKYCITY Auckland.The company will announce its final results on 13 February 2019. In a filing to the Australian Securities Exchange early Tuesday, SKYCITY said it expects to record normalized EBITDA growth of around 10% to NZ$189 million and normalized profit after tax of NZ$97 million, up 11% over the same period in 2017.However, it warned that actual results would be down on normalized increases due to a low win rate in VIP of just 0.98% – well below the expected win rate of 1.35% and the 1.70% win rate it achieved in the prior year period.SKYCITY previously reported a 10.4% rise in net profit to NZ$169.9 million in the year ended 30 June 2018 on the back of a rapid recovery of the company’s VIP sector following the arrests of 19 Crown Resorts employees in mainland China in late 2016.last_img read more

Will the vAMP replace the CD

first_img Citation: Will the vAMP replace the CD? (2008, January 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-01-vamp-cd.html The vAMP MP3 player by MediaStreet. The new device, called the vAMP (virtual album MP3 player), is like a cross between a CD and MP3. Technically, it´s an MP3 player, but it comes pre-loaded with a particular album, and you buy it in stores. The vAMP doesn´t have a screen, but it has a front sticker containing album art and a back sticker containing the track listing and liner notes. MediaStreet claims that it´s the smallest (0.7 ounces) and thinnest (3 mm) fully functional MP3 player.The vAMP has 1 GB of space, so consumers can add additional songs to the device, as well as transfer the vAMP´s pre-loaded songs to a computer. Consumers will also have access to Beyond.FM and MyDigitialContent.com to download songs.The vAMP has a suggested retail price of $27.99 each (or you can buy a blank vAMP for $19.99). It may be about the cheapest MP3 player you can get, but it´s still quite a bit pricier than a single CD or downloading individual songs. Nevertheless, MediaStreet and the music stores are hoping that the vAMP and a compelling marketing campaign will lure music fans back into stores. Certainly, the device provides a more tangible collectible item than single MP3s. But whether people who already own iPods will be interested remains to be seen.via: ChipChick While some people might argue that the CD has already been replaced by the MP3, music stores want to think otherwise. The digital device manufacturer MediaStreet has recently announced a product that it hopes will replace the CD and get music fans back in stores. This document is subject to copyright.

Micron Decides to Kill Lexar Brand

It’s a brand that’s been around for over two decades and always appears in search results when looking for portable storage. But it won’t for much longer as parent company Micron is killing the brand.Lexar started life in 1996 when it was spun off from Cirrus Logic and is based in Milipitas, a city in Santa Clara County, Calif. As well as the Lexar name itself being well-known, the company owns the very popular JumpDrive trademark associated with its USB flash drives.A year before being acquired by Micron Technology in 2006, Lexar won a lawsuit against Toshiba who had copied its flash memory technology. Compensation from that case amounted to $380 million. Do a search for Lexar today and you’ll still find a wide-range of flash drives, SD cards and CompactFlash cards. Many of these are now presented under the Lexar Professional name.As to why Micron decided to kill the brand, Jay Hawkins, consumer products group vice president at Micron Technology, explains in a blog post that, “The decision was made as part of the company’s ongoing efforts to focus on its increasing opportunities in higher value markets and channels.”Existing Lexar customer will continue to receive support for the products they have purchased, but we shoudln’t expect to see any new Lexar products appearing or new stock of existing lines shipped. However, this may not be the end of the Lexar name. Micron is making it clear they are open to selling all or part of the Lexar business.
