LG to unveil new Gram laptops at CES 2020

More powerful than before

LG, maker of value-for-money Gram laptops, will unveil new additions to the family at CES 2020. These new laptops will keep the lightweight footprint while boosting the performance with new Intel chipsets.

Powering the new Gram laptops are Intel’s 10th-gen processors with Iris Plus graphics. These should boost performance of the LG Gram 17, the flagship model in the 2020 lineup of Gram laptops. Aside from a new powerful chipset, it has a 17-inch display with 4K resolution — one-upping the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro. LG claims that it has 96% of sRGB coverage, which is enough for discerning users. It also comes with 80Wh battery, up to 24GB of memory, and a super fast SSD storage to cover the basics.

Then, there’s the LG Gram 15.  It has a 15.6-inch display but only the FHD option is available at launch. However, it should deliver long battery life to the laptop since it carried over the 80Wh battery. Like the Gram 17, it has up to 24GB of memory and a super-fast SSD storage.

Finally, LG also made a 14-inch variant that will appease most users — the LG Gram 14. It will also come in a 2-in-1 form factor, the LG Gram 14 2-in-1. Both variants get FHD screens, and a large for its kind 72Wh battery. The traditional Gram gets up to 24GB of memory while the 2-in-1 max out at 16GB. Like the rest of the lineup, they come with a SSD storage.

All devices also get a backlit keyboard. Connecting peripherals will not be a problem since all laptops come with an USB-C Thunderbolt 3, two USB 3.1 Type-A, HDMI, and even a microSD card reader. All Gram laptops also come with a fingerprint scanner for security, and a MIL-STD compliance for durability.

At launch, all three will come in either White or Dark Silver variant. Surely, there’s more to the 2020 LG Gram laptops, so stay tuned for the rest of specifications which LG will announce at CES 2020 in January.

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!

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.
