Apple faces competition with iPad challengers

0

Once upon a time, people who craved a tablet computer bought an iPad.

But Apple faces its strongest slate of challengers this holiday season, with several tablets besting the trendsetting iPad on price and features.

There are still plenty of reasons to get an iPad — either the full-size iPad Air starting at $499 or the iPad Mini at $399.

Versions of both are available for $100 less, but you get a slower device with a lower-resolution screen.

Whichever one you get for your loved one, the iPad offers this:

• An unmatched selection of high-quality apps, many of them adapted for the tablet’s larger screen. Many apps for Android tablets are simply phone apps blown up, while the Windows app store has a smaller selection.

• A screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio. That’s the standard size for photos and older television shows, and it displays more content when Web surfing with the tablet held horizontally.

• Great syncing with other Apple devices, if the recipient of your gift has any. When setting up an Apple TV streaming device, for instance, you can simply place your iPad near it and bypass screens of prompts. Directions on the Mac’s new Maps app can be sent to the iPad with two clicks.

Italian stallion Lamborghini LP 610-4 officially unveiled

0

Italy has given the world some rugged and grunt road cruisers like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Maserati. But the craziest and maddest creation from the land of sports car makers is definitely Lamborghini. Right from the rear mid-engine Miura to sharp-edged Countach, the Italian sports car manufacturer has turned innumerable heads on its innovations. A recent addition to the list is Huracan, the successor of modish looking Gallardo. The company has officially unveiled its newest weapon in sport cruise warfare, called the Huracan LP 610-4. The name itself is bewildering, meaning “Hurricane” in Spanish and aptly suffices the robust looking car, barbed with carbon fibre.

Technologically, Huracan is more sound than its predecessor and holds an immense strength to blaze the tracks. A mid-mounted 5.2-litre V10 engine tapped under the hood develops a humongous 602 bhp of power output with 560 Nm of peak torque. Such amount of torque is capable of dragging a giant wildebeest on the ground and being produced in an automobile, it will certainly thrust Huracan into a missile trajectory. The car also possesses a potential of reaching 0-100 kmph in a minuscule 3.9 seconds, with a top speed attained at over 320 kmph. Lamborghini also introduces its first 7-speed, dual clutch gearbox with this car, named Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF).

The 4-wheel drive of Huracan LP 601-4 is spectacularly comforted by the nimble body design of its hybrid chassis, claimed to be blended with aluminium and carbon fibre. Interiors give a hint of the traditional Lamborghini style with all consoles wrapped in fine Italian fabrics. A toggle at the base of steering wheel helps you chose between the three dynamic modes, comprising performance of stability control system, torque partition in 4 wheels and the efficiency of engine. Wheels are mounted with ceramic carbon brakes, which is standard and an option of magnetic suspension is also available with Huracan.
