Lenovo’s ThinkBook Plus is for multitaskers

Comes with an e-ink cover display

The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus offers an interesting solution to the lack of focus due to multitasking problem. It’s cover is equipped with an e-ink display which will show only show you pertinent information.

Is the solution really another screen? Lenovo thinks so. Albeit, one that’s scaled down. There are a number of things you can do on the 10.8-inch e-ink cover display:

  1. Receive only essential notifications: Calendar appointments, instant messages or important emails.
  2. Jot down notes with the integrated Precision Pen. The notes can be synced with Microsoft OneNote.
  3. Review and add annotations on documents. You can then open the laptop to build on and/or add to those annotations.

The idea is that by limiting your access to a stream of information, you’re likely to be more in the moment. This might be particularly helpful when you’re in a meeting or a focused group discussion where you’re focus is demanded.

Still your reliable ThinkBook

Other than the e-ink cover display, the ThinkBook Plus is pretty much still everything you expect from a ThinkBook. A sleek machine made with the modern workforce in mind. Something that looks different but not too outrageous or distracting.

It’s a 13.3-inch FHD display, Skype-certified Harman speakers, Amazon Alexa integration, Intel’s 10th Gen processor, SSD storage, Windows 10, Windows Hello authentication, fingerprint reader integrated on the power button, and a camera shutter among other things.

Optional accessories

There’s a ThinkBook Plus Sleeve that has an interior foam padding to protect the e-ink cover display. It’s listed as optional but it sounds more like it’s a necessary accessory.

What’s truly optional is the ThinkBook Bluetooth Silent Mouse. It has distraction-free silent buttons, adjustable DPI controls and a blue optical sensor that lets you work on nearly any surface. It will instantly connect with your the ThinkBook Plus.

Pricing and availability

The ThinkBook Plus will be available on March 2020 starting at US$ 1199. Both the ThinkBook Bluetooth Silent Mouse and the ThinkBook Plus Sleeve will follow on April 2020 priced at US$ 39.99 and US$ 44.99 respectively.

Sex tech is for everyone, not just for men

CES 2020 encourages sex positivity

Published

on

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!

Lora DiCarlo’s Baci

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.
