Pocophone F1 : Snapdragon 845, double appareil photo et 6go de RAM

Xiaomi a choisi comme slogan pour son smartphone low cost "Master of Speed", et on comprend pourquoi. Malgré son prix riquiqui, l'appareil tournera sur l'un des SoC les plus plébiscités du marché : le Snapdragon 845.

Une puce qui sera équipée de pas moins de 6Go de RAM et de 64 ou 128 Go de stockage selon le modèle choisi ? la version la plus généreuse ne coûtant que 40€ de plus à l'achat. Pour couronner le tout, l'appareil embarque une généreuse batterie de 4000 mAh.

Le smartphone de 6,18 pouces répond également aux exigences de design d'aujourd'hui en adoptant la controversée encoche sur sa face supérieure. Un bandeau qui accueille notamment un APN frontal de pas moins de 20 MP, pour des selfies en haute définition.

À l'arrière, une lentille Sony de 12MP s'accompagne d'une autre de 5MP, produite par Samsung.

Un smartphone low cost qui ne fait pas l'impasse sur les fonctionnalités

Outre sa fiche technique admirable pour ce prix, le Pocophone F1 fait également la part belle aux fonctionnalités.

Ainsi, l'appareil est doté d'une technologie de refroidissement inédite appelée LiquidCool. Autrement dit, c'est tout un système de watercooling qui se charge de réguler la température du smartphone ! Une innovation "300% plus efficace que les solutions de refroidissement classiques non liquides", selon Xiaomi.

Enfin, se loge également dans l'encoche du smartphone un détecteur de proximité ainsi qu'une lentille et un flash infrarouge. Tout cet attirail étant mis à profit par la technologie de déverrouillage de l'appareil par reconnaissance faciale qui, grâce à l'infrarouge, fonctionne également dans l'obscurité.

Le Pocophone F1 sera disponible le 30 août prochain au prix de 359€ pour la version 64 Go, et 399€ pour la version 128 Go. Si vous décidez de vous le procurer avant le 30 septembre prochain, une offre de remboursement de 30€ vous est également proposée.

The Flash is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

Flash Superhero

The Flash is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, the original Flash first appeared in Flash Comics.

Thus far, four different characters each of whom somehow gained the power of have assumed the identity of the Flash. Before Wally and Bart's ascension to the mantle of the Flash, they were both Flash protégés under the same name Kid Flash Bart was also known as Impulse.

Golden Age

The Flash first appeared in the Golden Age Flash from All-American Publications, one of three companies.

Silver Age

Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, this Flash was Jay Garrick, a college student who gained his speed through the inhalation of hard water vapors.

The Other Age

DC Comics successfully revived superheroes, ushering in what became known as the Silver Age of comic books. Rather than bringing back the same Golden Age heroes, DC rethought them as new characters for the modern age. The Flash was the first revival, in the aptly named tryout comic book Showcase.

This new Flash was Barry Allen, a police scientist who gained super-speed when bathed by chemicals after a shelf of them was struck by lightning. He adopted the name The Flash after reading a comic book featuring the Golden Age Flash. After several more appearances in Showcase, Allen's character was given his own title, The Flash, the first issue of which was resuming where Flash Comics had left off. Barry Allen and the new Flash were created by writers Robert Kanigher and John Broome and cartoonist Carmine Infantino.

Painting

Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a surface (support base). The medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush but other implements, such as knives, sponges, and airbrushes, can be used.

In art, the term painting describes both the act and the result of the action. Paintings may have for their support such surfaces as walls, paper, canvas, wood, glass, lacquer, clay, leaf, copper or concrete, and may incorporate multiple other materials including sand, clay, paper, plaster, gold leaf as well as objects.

Mode of creative expression

Painting is a mode of creative expression, and the forms are numerous. Drawing, gesture (as in gestural painting), composition, narration (as in narrative art), or abstraction (as in abstract art), among other aesthetic modes, may serve to manifest the expressive and conceptual intention of the practitioner.

Non-traditional elements

Modern artists have extended the practice of painting considerably to include, for example, collage, which began with Cubism and is not painting in the strict sense. Some modern painters incorporate different materials such as sand, cement, straw or wood for their texture. Examples of this are the works of Jean Dubuffet and Anselm Kiefer. There is a growing community of artists who use computers to paint color onto a digital canvas using programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter, and many others. These images can be printed onto traditional canvas if required.

Mont Blanc
or Monte Bianco

Mont Blanc or Monte Bianco, both meaning "White Mountain", is the highest mountain in the Alps and the highest peak in Europe outside of the Caucasus range.

The first recorded ascent of Mont Blanc was on 8 August 1786 by Jacques Balmat and the doctor Michel Paccard. This climb, initiated by Horace-Bénédict de Saussure.

History

Now the summit is ascended by an average 20,000 mountaineer-tourists each year. It could be considered an easy, yet long, ascent for someone who is well trained and used to the altitude. From l'Aiguille du Midi (where the cable car stops), Mont Blanc seems quite close, being 1,000 m (3,300 ft) higher. But while the peak seems deceptively close, La Voie des 3 Monts route (known to be more technical and challenging than other more commonly used routes) requires much ascent and descent before the final section of the climb is reached and the last 1000 m push to the summit is undertaken.

Air crashes

The mountain was the scene of two fatal air crashes; Air India Flight 245 in 1950 and Air India Flight 101 in 1966. Both planes were approaching Geneva airport and the pilots miscalculated their descent.

Tunnel

In 1946 a drilling project was initiated to carve a tunnel through the mountain. The Mont Blanc tunnel would connect Chamonix, France.

Elevation

The summit of Mont Blanc is a thick, perennial ice and snow dome whose thickness varies. No exact and permanent summit elevation can therefore be determined, though accurate measurements have been made on specific dates. For a long time its official elevation was 4,807 m (15,771 ft). In 2002, the IGN and expert surveyors, with the aid of GPS technology, measured it to be 4,807.40 m (15,772 ft 4 in).

Confucius

was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history.

"Choose a job you love,
and you will never have to work a day in your life."Confucius

The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity. His followers competed successfully with many other schools during the Hundred Schools of Thought era only to be suppressed in favor of the Legalists during the Qin Dynasty. Following the victory of Han over Chu after the collapse of Qin, Confucius's thoughts received official sanction and were further developed into a system known as Confucianism.

Confucius is traditionally

credited with having authored or edited many of the Chinese classic texts including all of the Five Classics, but modern scholars are cautious of attributing specific assertions to Confucius himself. Aphorisms concerning his teachings were compiled in the Analects, but only many years after his death.

Confucius's principles

had a basis in common Chinese tradition and belief. He championed strong family loyalty, respect of elders by their children and of husbands by their wives. He espoused the well-known principle "Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself", an early version of the Golden Rule.

It is generally thought that Confucius was born in 551 BC. His birthplace was in Zou, Lu state (near present-day Qufu, Shandong Province). His father Kong He, also known as Shuliang He, was an officer in the Lu military. Kong He died when Confucius was three years old, and Confucius was raised by his mother Yan Zhengzai in poverty. At age 19 he married his wife, surnamed Qiguan, and a year later the couple had their first child, Kong Li.

Confucius was born into the class of shi, between the aristocracy and the common people. He is said to have worked as a shepherd, cowherd, clerk, and a book-keeper. When his mother died, Confucius (aged 23) is said to have mourned for three years as was the tradition.

Like incandescent lamps and unlike most fluorescent lamps, LEDs come to full brightness without need for a warm-up time.

LED lamp

An LED lamp is a light-emitting diode (LED) product that is assembled into a lamp (or light bulb) for use in lighting fixtures. LED lamps have a lifespan and electrical efficiency that is several times better than incandescent lamps, and significantly better than most fluorescent lamps, with some chips able to emit more than 100 lumens per watt. The LED lamp market is projected to grow by more than twelve-fold over the next decade, from $2 billion in the beginning of 2014 to $25 billion in 2023, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25%.

Like incandescent lamps and unlike most fluorescent lamps (e.g. tubes and compact fluorescent lamps or CFLs), LEDs come to full brightness without need for a warm-up time; the life of fluorescent lighting is also reduced by frequent switching on and off.[citation needed] Initial cost of LED is usually higher. Degradation of LED dye and packaging materials reduces light output to some extent over time.

Some LED lamps

are made to be a directly compatible drop-in replacement for incandescent or fluorescent lamps. An LED lamp packaging may show the lumen output, power consumption in watts, color temperature in kelvins or description (e.g. "warm white"), operating temperature range, and sometimes the equivalent wattage of an incandescent lamp of similar luminous output.

"The space shuttle was often used as an example of why you shouldn't even attempt to make something reusable. But one failed experiment does not invalidate the greater goal. If that was the case, we'd never have had the light bulb."Elon Musk

Flat design is a minimalist UI design genre, or design language, currently used in various graphical user interfaces.

Flat design

Flat design is a minimalist UI design genre, or design language, currently used in various graphical user interfaces (such as Web sites or Web applications). It is contrasted with skeuomorphic design.

Definition and purpose

Flat design is a style of interface design without any stylistic elements that give the illusion of three dimensions (such as drop shadows, gradients or textures) and is focused on a minimalist use of simple elements, typography and flat colors. Designers may prefer flat design because it allows interface designs to be more streamlined and efficient. It is easier to quickly convey information while still looking visually appealing and approachable. Additionally, it makes it easier to design an interface that is responsive to changes in browser size across different devices. With minimal design elements, websites are able to load faster and resize easily, and still look sharp on high-definition screens. As a design approach, it is often contrasted to skeuomorphism and rich design.

History of use

Flat design owes its inspiration mainly to three styles of art, which are the International Typographic Style (also known as Swiss Style), Modernism and the styles emerging from Bauhaus.

The International Typographic style is often considered the most substantial influence on flat design and its emergence and popularization during the 1950s and 1960s is regarded as the starting point of flat design, although it would not make an appearance in the digital world for some time thereafter.

Possible future

Some designers believe flat design to be a fad which will pass in time. Criticisms of flat design include, for example, the lack of drop shadows, which may make it more difficult for users to tell if a button is clickable. Flat design is praised for its adaptability among various uses. The simple styling allows flat design to look good across various applications and screen sizes. Some designers believe that a combination of both skeuomorphism and flat design is eventually where flat design will end up. The adaptability of flat design will create simplicity for users and designers, whereas the minute details of skeuomorphism will allow for more focus on specific features.
