These are not battery extenders with 45-Watt power draws but offer up to 5GHz of clock speed.
The flagship of the H series is the Core i9-9980HK which can be overclocked beyond its rated 5GHz clock speed, has 8 cores, 16 threads, 16 MB of cache and supports WiFi6.
Intel says the chips have 54% faster 4K video editing and 56% improved gameplay compared to three-year-old computers.
The series is available now in Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Razer, Lenovo, and MSI laptops.
|:37||sl||Nvidia's cheapest GeForce Turing video card, the GeForce GTX 1650 is now available for $149, offering a low-power, 1080p experience for an affordable price. The GTX 1650 joins the GTX 1660 (vanilla) and GTX 1660 Ti, both based on the TU116 GPU. The GTX 1650 ships with 896 CUDA cores enabled, spread over 2 GPCs, clocked to 1665MHz. NVIDIA has opted not to allow the press to test GTX 1650 cards ahead of time so reviews have yet to come. Anandtech says that based on specs though it seems that the Radeon RX570 from AMD is the best comparison, matching price, beating in perofrmance while falling off in features in power efficencey compared to the GTX 1650. Anandtech expects the GTX 1650 to deliver around 60% of the performance of the next card up in NVIDIA’s product stack, the GTX 1660.|

Wing plans to begin routine deliveries of small consumer items from retail partners in two rural communities-- Blacksburg and Christiansburg, Virginia-- within months. Gaining the FAA’s approval as an airline meant creating safety manuals and training routines and implementing a safety hierarchy. The approval will make it easier for other US-owned companies like Amazon to get approval as well. Earlier this month the CASA in Australia approved Wing to make deliveries in the suburbs of Canberra.||https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/23/18512658/google-alphabet-wing-drone-delivery-service-faa-approval-commercial-deliveries|
|:44||pb||Twitter's first quarter earnings report showed revenue of $787 million, up 18 percent from the same quarter last year; and net income of $191 million and earnings per share of $0.25.|
The US accounted for $432 million, or 55 percent, of Twitter’s revenues, with international revenues at $355 million.
MAUs were 330 million in Q1, 6 million fewer users compared to a year ago, but up 9 million from the last quarter.
Twitter says this is the last quarter it will report MAUs as it will focus on the dailies, which the company considers its more valuable number.
Monetizable DAUs were 134 million in the quarter, up 11 percent on a year ago.
28 million came from the US and 105 million internationally, though the US accounted for 55% of Twitter's revenue.
Japan is Twitter's second largest market by revenue.
|:49||.||AT&T and Sprint have settled a dispute over AT&T's controversial 5Ge rebranding of LTE service. Sprint filed a lawsuit against AT&T in February, claiming that 5Ge was misleading causing customers to believe the network was actually 5G. Terms of the settled weren't disclosed, but sources told the Dallas Business Journal that AT&T will likely continue to use the term 5Ge going forward. So it's time for the public service message again. If you see 5Ge on your AT&T phone you are getting LTE service with carrier aggregation, 4x4 MIMO and 256 QAM for faster LTE. You are NOT getting 5G service if you see 5Ge, despite the misleading name. A study by Open Signal in March found AT&T's 5Ge capable phones received service about as fast as T-Mobile and Verizon's LTE , and faster than Sprint's.||https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/22/18511660/att-sprint-5ge-false-advertising-lawsuit-settlement|

To have your packages left in your garage, you'll need a Chamberlain Smart Garage door with its myQ-connected garage-door software. For non-garage options, Key requires an internet-connected door lock and security camera for in-home delivery. In-car delivery requires an active OnStar or Volvo On Call account.||https://techcrunch.com/2019/04/23/amazon-opens-key-delivery-to-garages/|

So I consume fairly large amounts of tech news every week either in the form of podcasts (go go DTNS!) or tech news sites but I came across something today that I’ve never heard of in my life.
I was curious if Wikipedia was downloadable and it turns out that it is. The file is just about 15.4 GiB. At first I assumed it was Gigabytes and then I looked closer and saw the little “i” in there and then looked that up and found out it stands for Gibibyte with a “B” not a “G.” Anyhow, after doing a search on the difference, it turns out the Gigabyte is a base-10 (decimal) term and the Gibibyte is a base-2 (binary) term where Gibi, Mebi and Kibi are called Binary prefixes.
Easiest to explain is with the Kilobyte vs. Kibibyte where it has to do with that extra 24 bytes we are all aware of where 1 Kilobyte is really 1,024 bytes, not 1000. Kilo, Mega, Giga are all nice round decimal numbers. Kibi, Mebi and Gibi are the binary equivalents (i.e.1024, 1024-squared, 1024-cubed, etc.).
