NVIDIA graphics cards could return to Apple computers

NVIDIA published a job listing looking for an engineer to “help produce the next revolutionary Apple products”, and of course this made us assume that either both companies are in talks to use the new NVIDIA graphics cards in the next generation of Apple laptops, or they already have an agreement to do so.

In the past, Apple used to offer its computers with both AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards, but for several product generations the people in Cupertino limited their options to either use an Intel integrated graphics or a dedicated AMD, leaving NVIDIA out of the equation. This appears to have changed, or at least it may be assumed since otherwise it would be absurd for NVIDIA to publish such job listing.

Lenovo goes for a touch keyboard on their new Yoga Book.

Lenovo’s new Yoga Book is the company’s new 2 in 1, a market which they are leaders in and that they have been wanting to improve.

The most interesting and eye catching feature of the Yoga Book is the Instant Halo Keyboard, which is none other than a touch panel on which a keyboard is displayed, since the laptop doesn’t have a physical keyboard. This keyboard also serves as a touch panel and a tablet capable of sensing 2048 pressure levels which can be used with a stylus.

iOS 10, iPhone 7 and the new MacBook Pros at the September 7th Keynote

iOS 10, iPhone 7 and the new MacBook Pros at the September 7th Keynote

A week from now, Apple will have another one of their highly anticipated presentations where they will without a doubt update their smartphone line. The iPhone promises interesting changes and a more powerful processor, but it won’t come alone.

iPhone 7 or iPhone 6 SE

It still isn’t clear what the name of Apple’s new phone will be, but we do know for certain some of the new features and changes it will bring to the table. One of the main ones will be the addition of a double sensor which will allow you to take pictures with more depth of field options and new hardware effects with which we will be able to mess around. The main sensor will also certainly improve to compete with other flagship smartphone cameras like the new seventh generation Samsung Galaxy.

New Apple

Another change, and a very polemic one for that matter, is that the new iPhone will get rid of the headphone jack. An analog connection that’s still appreciated by many people but that is easily adaptable to the digital jack on the phone. This will allow the new iPhone to gain a bit more room on the inside, and will take it one step further into the future, forgetting about analog remains.
