Definitely a beauty and a beast

Dell’s flagship laptop — the XPS 13 — is well-loved by Windows users. From going through so many changes over the past few years, Dell refined it further with the XPS 13 (2019). But no one’s stopping the American company from making an even better laptop.

This 2020, Dell unveils the newest XPS 13 — which is even more refined and improved, but still a beauty and a beast. For starters, this beaut prides itself with a 6.8 percent bigger InfinityEdge 4K display, a smaller form factor with a 91.5 percent screen-to-body ratio, and longer battery life up to 19 hours. It’s also equipped with the latest 10th-Gen Intel Core processor.

The XPS 13 still marries aesthetics and function. It has an elegant and lightweight design, combined with a body made of aluminum and carbon fiber or woven glass fiber.

Moreover, this flagship laptop is equipped with advanced technology and security features. Its power button still acts as its fingerprint reader. It also uses Windows Hello for an easy log-in and an infrared camera for facial unlock. With its built-in mics, the XPS 13 can also respond with Cortana even if you’re 14 feet away.

Ports-wise, the XPS 13 has two Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ports that can charge your laptop, connect it to multiple devices, and enjoy data transfers up to 40Gbps.

Aside from pushing technology forward, Dell cares about the environment. The American company ensures the XPS 13 is power-efficient, free of cadmium, lead, and mercury, and recycle-friendly.

Pricing and Availability

Dell’s newest XPS 13 will retail for US$ 999 and will be available on January 7, 2020 in the US, UK, France, Germany, and Sweden. It will come to other regions in February. There’s also the Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition which will retail for US$ 1,999.99 and will be available starting February 4, 2020 in the US, Canada, and various European countries.

Sex tech is for everyone, not just for men

CES 2020 encourages sex positivity

Published

Startup Lora DiCarlo graced the headlines last year for having its award revoked by the committee behind the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The startup believes it was unjust and fought for its right to be part of the annual show.

This year, Lora DiCarlo is the talk of the town once again, not because of an issue, but for being in the spotlight of CES 2020. Lora DiCarlo paved the way for sex tech to be out in the open, particularly companies with devices geared for women’s sex, health, and wellness.

Sex tech isn’t new, but sex being taboo in this modern yet surprisingly conservative society took the spotlight away from their devices. In case you’re wondering, sex technology mostly ventures on innovations to enhance our sexuality and sexual experience.

Breaking barriers

In 2017, men enjoyed VR porn as if it was that revolutionary, while sex toys and vibrators that offer solutions to enhance our experiences and relationships aren’t getting the splash they deserve. Thankfully, CES 2020 is taking a step forward in ending sexism and encourage sex-positivity. After all, sex is part of human nature.

Ever since Lora Haddock DiCarlo — the founder of Lora DiCarlo — fought for their right to be at CES, I was astounded and followed her journey. I’m all ears for women speaking up, especially with the goal of making a change in our society.

Lora DiCarlo’s Osé won an innovative award and was later revoked by CES. Eventually, Lora DiCarlo got the award reinstated while fighting for sex tech to be recognized in a separate category.

Now that DiCarlo and her company sparked a controversy, sex tech are now in the spotlight of the annual show held at Las Vegas. DiCarlo didn’t expect herself to be at the forefront of change, but it elevated her profile and grew her business.

Pleasure is at the forefront

At CES 2020, Lora DiCarlo showcased their first device once again — the Osé — is a personal massager which produces blended orgasm by mimicking movements of a human partner. It’s that revolutionary, hence, gaining an innovation award. I mean, just imagine a device pleasuring you the way a human partner does — It’s astonishing!

Additionally, Lora DiCarlo unveiled two more devices: Baci and Onda. Baci is a micro-robotic device which stimulates the feel and motion of human lips and tongue, while Onda mimics the motion of human fingers. Even though it’s meant for women, I can’t wait to actually try one!

More sex technology to solve our needs

DiCarlo’s fight enabled other companies and devices to get noticed and join the spotlight. Satisfyer showed-off Satisyfer Connect, an app that can be used remotely with a long-distance partner. Lioness delivered its second-generation vibrator tracking data to improve orgasms.

Furthermore, Womanizer exhibited their products and Pleasure Air Technology — a combination of suction and pressure waves — which brings a mindblowing, orgasmic experience. While all of these talk about pleasure, Morari introduced a “band-aid” that withholds pleasure, solving the premature ejaculation issue prevalent with men.

2020 might just be the beginning, but CES showcasing sex technology is a huge step forward in encouraging a sex-positive society. If you’re still iffy about this technology, remember that you’re not the target audience and that you were born because your parents had sex.
