The new ZenBook 13 includes discrete graphics in an ultraportable package

  The new ZenBook 13 includes discrete graphics in an ultraportable package We’re still waiting on Intel and AMD’s new partnership to help mainstream thin and light laptops with discrete graphics, but in the meantime Nvidia’s GeForce MX150 is the best blend of power and performance when portability is a priority. Asus now claims to have created the “thinnest laptop on the planet” to include discrete graphics: the ZenBook 13 UX331 (as seen on Engadget).Asus also offers an MX150 in its Flip 14 two-in-one, but this new ZenBook 13, which was originally announced last year, is only 0.5-inches thick and weighs 2.5 pounds. The 1080p screen is a touchscreen, but there are no convertible hinge shenanigans.

Intel's upcoming XMM 8000 series modems will power 5G in notebooks in the second half of 2019, the company announced today. That'll include machines from Dell, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft. (Yes, that means we'll see a 5G Surface next year.) You can expect their mobile network speeds to be blazing fast, naturally, but they'll also take advantage of 5G's low latency. That'll led you do things like play online games with the same responsiveness as a wired network connection.

To give us an idea of what 5G will look like in a laptop, Intel will also be showing off a 2-in-1 concept at Mobile World Congress next week. There aren't too many details about that device yet, but Intel says it'll demonstrate the power of 5G by streaming live video. Perhaps we'll see them running multiple 4K streams at once -- something the company has demonstrated on desktops over the last few years.

Intel expands bug bounty to catch more Spectre-like security flaws

  Intel expands bug bounty to catch more Spectre-like security flaws It might not always spot exploits, but it can ask for help.The higher bounty stems in part from the complexity of demonstrating exploits. Unlike most purely software-driven attacks, the speculative execution tricks behind Meltdown and Spectre require extensive know-how.

And as Mobile Word Congress is now just a couple of days away, Intel has just announced its plans to bring 5 G to mobile PCs next year. The company expects the first 5 G -connected PCs to be launched in the second half of 2019 , which should give some time to carriers around the world to build their 5 G

LastPass rolls out Android Oreo autofill to the public. Intel will bring 5 G to laptops in 2019 . Apple is reportedly developing water-resistant AirPods. 5 G will be a key part of the company's "Always Connected" PC plans.

While the tech world is holding its breath to see how 5G transforms our phones, it has the potential to signifcantly impact how we use PCs, as well. Integrated LTE connectivity is still a rarity in laptops today. But if the 5G networks are as fast as we expect, and Intel's modems make it easy for manufacturers to integrate 5G, there's a good chance we'll see even wider adoption. The new cellular technology is exactly what Intel and Microsoft need for their vision of "Always Connected" PCs -- machines with incredibly long battery life and integrated network connectivity.

Intel has also signed up for a partnership with China's Unigroup Spreadtrum to integrate its 5G modem in its 2019 mobile platform. While that's not exactly a major brand to start with, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw more phone makers partnering with Intel soon. Qualcomm has had a huge headstart with its X50 5G modem, which will be powering devices from Sony, LG, ASUS and more companies next year. So, thanks to the competitive push, we expect to see Intel kicking its 5G plans into high gear soon.

Clubs see timing of FFA expansion call as cynical

  Clubs see timing of FFA expansion call as cynical There is little love lost between the FFA and the clubs and bodies representing the A-League and second tier clubs see expansion call as ploy to impress FIFAThe Australian Association of Football Clubs, the body leading the push for a second tier for the professional game, was shocked by the FFA's failure to mention the prospect of a second division in the announcement that A-League expansion was firmly on its agenda.

Not to be outdone by Qualcomm on the always-connected PC front, Intel has revealed that it’s collaborating with leading PC manufacturers to bring its new 5 G modem to laptops next year. The company is working with Dell, HP

But rival chip maker Intel says 2019 will be the year 5 G -capable always-connected PCs hit the streets. Personally I’d love to have a 4G or 5 G modem in my laptop … if it was a one-time cost. Intel is also partnering with chip maker Spreadtrum to bring phones with Intel ’s 5 G modem and

NRL in talks to take regular-season game to US in 2019 .
It has been talked about for decades but the NRL’s pipedream of playing a regular-season game on US soil could finally become a reality in 2019, according to CEO Todd Greenberg. Rugby league’s long-promised plan to tap into the giant American market is set to begin with a controversial one-off Test between England and New Zealand in Denver this year.While several clubs have already expressed concerns over the mid-year international, Greenberg says it’s now a matter of when – not if – a bona fide NRL game is played stateside.
