The 12.3-inch convertible device is the second Chrome OS-powered tablet ever made, after Acer’s Chromebook Tab 10, and it comes with a detachable keyboard and trackpad, as well as a stylus – making it appear quite similar to most laptops. The whole thing comes in at a light 1.4kg, and measures just 15.3mm in thickness.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 7th-gen Intel Kaby Lake Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM (with an option to double it), 32GB of storage, stereo speakers, and a large battery that promises up to 10 hours of use on a single charge. There’s also a 2400 x 1600 pixel (Quad HD) display, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel snapper on the front, two USB-C ports, a microSD card slot for adding up to 256GB more space, and yes, a headphone jack.

A rare signal from the early universe sends scientists clues about dark matter

  A rare signal from the early universe sends scientists clues about dark matter Radio astronomers have made an unprecedented discovery: telltale fingerprints from the earliest stars in the cosmos, pressed into the afterglow of the universe's birth.This computer-generated image shows the structure of the cyclonic pattern observed over Jupiter's south pole. Like in the North, Jupiter's south pole also contains a central cyclone, but it is surrounded by five cyclones with diameters ranging from 3,500 to 4,300 miles (5,600 to 7,000 kilometers) in diameter. Almost all the polar cyclones (at both poles), are so densely packed that their spiral arms come in contact with adjacent cyclones.

HP ’s Pro x 2 convertible is boldy taking on the iPad in the world of retail and other verticals. It ’ s also taking on the iPad in areas where the popular tablet dominates. HP ’s Pro x 2 is ready for industrial work with its Rugged Case accessory. Along with all these configuration choices, HP is offering

HP has announced a brand new take on the Chromebook that it hopes will give the iPad Pro a run Alternatively, HP also offers its own goofy origami keyboard cover for a slimmer all-in-one package. By comparison, the iPad Pro costs way more and doesn’t include the keyboard cover nor the stylus.

While it’s pretty and everything, the Chromebook x2 has its work cut out for it in contending with the iPad Pro. It runs Chrome OS, which is primarily designed to provide a desktop experience. However, the platform now supports Android apps, so that’ll allow for a wider range of apps on it – but that may not be enough to draw folks away from the offerings on Apple’s App Store.

We’re also yet to see the x2 in action and measure its performance in terms of running productivity apps, as well as image and video editing tools. There’s also the question of how well its stylus and display work together; Apple’s got that bit sorted, to the point that the iPad Pro is a compelling alternative to dedicated hardware for creating digital art.

Still, at close to half the price when compared to the $1,067 package of an iPad Pro, an Apple Pencil, and a Smart Keyboard, the x2 is worth keeping an eye out for. At $599, it’s more expensive than most other Chromebooks, and nearly as much as a decent Windows laptop. We’ll have to wait and see if HP is onto something when the device hits store shelves on June 10.

Scott Disick Has 'Come to Terms' with the Fact That Kourtney Kardashian Has Moved on: Source .
Scott Disick is no longer “hung up” on his ex Kourtney Kardashian. After officially calling it quits in 2015, both Disick and Kardashian have moved on from their nine-year relationship. Disick is dating 19-year-old Sofia Richie while Kardashian is with Younes Bendjima. And a source tells PEOPLE that the parents of three are finally in a “good place.” “Scott and Kourtney are on better terms,” the source says. “He was hung up on Kourtney forever and really wanted to make that relationship work, but he’s finally come to terms with the fact that she’s moved on.” Disick and Kardashian share sons Mason, 8, Reign, 3, and daughter Penelope, 5. Along with improving his relationship with his ex, the source says Disick has also slowed down his hard-partying ways. “He’s not partying like he was just a year ago and seems to be in a healthier place mentally and physically,” the source adds. “Everyone in the family is really happy with how he’s doing lately.” Disick was most recently seen celebrating his 35th birthday with Richie in St. Barts with his kids. The couple has been officially dating since last September after initially sparking romance rumors a year ago. “Scott and Sofia have a super solid relationship and seem really happy together,” the source says. In recent months, the relationship appears to have gotten increasingly serious, with Richie spending plenty of time with Disick and Kardashian’s children. A source previously told PEOPLE Kardashian “trusts” Richie with the kids. “The kids are allowed to spend time with her,” the source said. “Sofia likes having them and helps Scott. So far, the kids are giving Kourtney good reports about Sofia.
