ThinkPad Helix combina una computadora portátil y una tableta con una pantalla mucho más práctica para desmontar y girar

Helix, el híbrido de calidad superior de la marca ThinkPad, se lidera el nuevo salto de la informática móvil con un diseño revolucionario que permite desmontar y girar el dispositivo. Este formato especial ofrece a los usuarios una libertad móvil y una versatilidad absoluta con cuatro opciones de uso exclusivas.

ThinkPad Helix funciona, en primer lugar, como un Ultrabook de alto rendimiento. Para incrementar la movilidad, la tableta de 11,6 pulgadas se puede retirar de la base, convirtiéndose en una tableta Core™ con Intel® de la tercera generación y vPro. Para lograr una comodidad superior, esta tableta pesa 835 gramos, la más liviana de este tipo1. A diferencia de otros híbridos, la pantalla se puede desmontar, girar 180 grados y volver a insertarla en la base. Este modo, denominado modo pie, convierte al Helix en una pequeña central para realizar presentaciones de negocios o disfrutar de una película. Luego, los usuarios pueden bajar la pantalla y colocarla en posición horizontal para utilizarla a modo de tableta, sin desconectar la base para poder seguir aprovechando los puertos y la conectividad.

Además del diseño novedoso, el ThinkPad Helix tiene un nivel de rendimiento y productividad excepcional que será el nuevo parámetro a seguir en este tipo de dispositivos. Siendo un Ultrabook de calidad superior, el ThinkPad Helix tiene una autonomía de hasta 10 horas para garantizar un día completo de trabajo y diversión. La navegación e interacción son muy simples gracias al puntero de precisión que se guarda en la propia tableta, un teclado de tamaño normal y un nuevo mouse táctil sin botones con más superficie útil: ostenta un 20% más que los tradicionales de ThinkPad. Helix tiene la pantalla más brillante de la cartera ThinkPad, con un tamaño de 11,6 pulgadas, alta definición e IPS de 1080p para lograr una visualización clara, nítida y vibrante en casi todo tipo de ambientes.

Para conectarse prácticamente en cualquier lugar, ThinkPad Helix viene con la opción de LTE2 inalámbrica de alta velocidad y por primera vez en este tipo de dispositivos, con tecnología de comunicaciones en campo cercano o NFC, por sus siglas en inglés, que permite compartir datos sin problemas con un simple toque para vincularlos. Además, Helix garantiza la fiabilidad de la marca ThinkPad, con seguridad mejorada y funciones de gestión para las grandes empresas, entre ellas Intel® vPro. Helix redefine las expectativas en cuanto a informática móvil, combinando tecnología innovadora e ingeniería para eliminar la necesidad de llevar una computadora portátil y una tableta.

IdeaPad Yoga 11S: un Ultrabook pequeño pero potente

Ahora los usuarios disponen de otra opción con el nuevo IdeaPad Yoga, uno de los revolucionarios dispositivos que se pueden girar y doblar gracias a una bisagra con movilidad de 360 grados. El nuevo Yoga 11S Yoga viene con una disposición de bajo consumo de Intel con un procesador Intel® Core™ i5 de la tercera generación y Windows 8 para que los usuarios puedan realizar diversas tareas al mismo tiempo y utilizar las aplicaciones del paquete Office, todo en un marco elegante y delgado de apenas 0,68 pulgadas. Al igual que con su predecesor, los usuarios pueden trabajar con el Yoga 11S usándolo a modo de computadora portátil o girar la pantalla para convertirlo en una tableta de tamaño grande. Incluso pueden utilizar el Yoga 11S para ver películas sin ocupar demasiado espacio, colocándolo verticalmente sobre el soporte o con un soporte inclinado por detrás, gracias a las funciones de audio Dolby Home Theater audio e Intel integrado para producir gráficas de alta definición.

IdeaPad Yoga 11S tiene un panel IPS de alta definición de 11,6 pulgadas con un panel táctil para 10 dedos y una función que hasta ahora se podía usar solamente en el Yoga 13: Motion Control permite a los usuarios ver fotografías, videos y demás documentos con sólo pasar la mano frente a la cámara Web. Además, con Lenovo Transition, los usuarios pueden abrir automáticamente aplicaciones como PowerPoint en pantalla completa al utilizar el Yoga en los otros tres formatos: tienda, pie o tableta.

IdeaPad Yoga 11S también tiene la misma cobertura atractiva con pintura de goma y el mismo exterior suave al tacto que el IdeaPad Yoga 13, disponible en gris plateado y color mandarina.

Lenovo ofrece una gama completa de servicios para los dispositivos convertibles, incluyendo actualizaciones de la garantía para servicio en el domicilio del propietario o de la empresa y cobertura contra daños accidentales en productos selectos para reforzar la protección contra los daños provocados por caídas o derrames. Se puede solicitar la asistencia de los técnicos expertos del servicio Asistencia Premium de Lenovo cuando sea necesario, a través de una sesión telefónica o de asistencia remota desde la comodidad de su casa. Además, las pequeñas empresas pueden solicitar una gama completa de servicios complementarios para el Helix ThinkPad de Lenovo. Los clientes pueden elegir entre una cartera de actualizaciones de la garantía, protección contra daños accidentales, conservación de datos y otros servicios de protección sumamente útiles para las pequeñas empresas actuales.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
