admin no comments

first_imgThis week, women entrepreneurs from around the world are gathering in San Francisco for the 8th annual Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) Summit. Representing 20 countries and more than 20 industries, these business leaders will share best practices, collaborate on business opportunities and formulate action plans for the advancement of women entrepreneurs.Dell is committed to advocating for entrepreneurs, the engine for innovation, economic growth and job creation globally. With this year’s Summit theme, “Real Opportunities, Real Solutions,” attendees will take deep dives on topics including emerging technology trends, alternative methods of finance and how to approach business in changing political landscapes.The festivities will kick off with a keynote by Nely Galan, entrepreneur, Emmy Award-winning producer and women’s empowerment advocate. More than 10 other influential women entrepreneurs will be onstage to share their advice and lessons learned. Some of these speakers include:Nicola Blackwood, former member of parliamentCarolyn Rodz, founder of Circular Board, a collaborative accelerator for growth-oriented female entrepreneursAmy Millman, president of Springboard Enterprises, a non-profit venture catalyst for women-led companiesEileen Gittins, CEO and co-founder of Bossygrl, a starter kit for female entrepreneurs, enabling women of all ages to create and grow real businesses, via their phonesMichele Perras, director of global ecosystem at Pivotal and advisor and mentor at Alchemist Accelerator, where she works with early-stage B2B/SaaS startupsLeah Busque, co-founder, executive chairwoman and former CEO of TaskRabbit, which was valued at over $100 millionAnd many more passionate women entrepreneursFostering a powerful community of women entrepreneurs and leaders starts with our girls, so we are thrilled to bring back the DWEN Girls’ Track developed for ages 12-16. Few programs today equip girls with the skills to pursue their career interests and passions. This is especially true when it comes to Science, Engineering, Math and Technology (STEM) – fields often dominated by males and now critical to building a successful business. As DWEN connects female entrepreneurs with networks, sources of capital, knowledge and technology, the Girls’ Track invests in girls so that their path to entrepreneurship can be a guided one.WE Cities 2017 Ranks Top 50 Cities for Women EntrepreneursAt DWEN Summit, we’ll be releasing results from our 2017 Women Entrepreneur Cities Index (WE Cities) – a unique global study commissioned by Dell to assess and compare cities around the world in terms of their ability to attract and foster high-impact women entrepreneurs.This year’s WE Cities ranks the top 50 cities – expanding on last year’s count of 25 – for women entrepreneurs based on five key pillars: market, culture, capital, talent and technology. This analysis provides data-driven research and clear calls to action to improve the landscape for women entrepreneurs, which in turn dramatically lifts a city’s economic prospects. For further analysis of results, check out the full report.Since its inception, DWEN has fostered a community of like-minded women who are looking for opportunities to grow their businesses. Every year, I am so inspired by the women (and girls!) attending DWEN Summit, and I expect this year will be no different as we welcome our largest and most diverse group yet. You can follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #DWEN, or by following @DellInnovators.Video highlights from the 2017 DWEN Summit are now available to watch here:last_img read more

Meet the New XPS 13: Stylish, Powerful and Better by Every Measure

admin no comments

first_imgTechnology has become an expression of style for those who use it – though fashion can be fickle. One thing we do know is elegance never goes out of style.First unveiled at CES 2012, the XPS 13 immediately enhanced the legacy of XPS as the world’s most celebrated laptop and winner of more product awards than any other line in Dell’s history, most recently named a CES 2018 Innovation Award Honoree.And how did it garner this latest honor? Vision and a lot of hard work.In reimagining the XPS 13, Dell took inspiration from the realm of fashion, where rose gold remains a trending color and white accents have been growing in popularity, seen everywhere from watch bands to sneakers. However, when turning our XPS white, we strived to achieve elegance and invested more than a dozen people, 11,520 hours and 50 trials to create a new system that was as stunning inside and out. The Dell design team didn’t want to simply paint a system white – they wanted to use authentic materials and make sure the system looked as beautiful on day 1,000 as it does on day 1.With the desire to give its white palm rest a weaved appearance, the team considered different materials beyond the color limits of traditional carbon fiber. The solution? An innovative new crystalline silica material with the white color literally woven in, like a fabric, in nine composite layers.  Dell is the first to use this woven glass fiber in a laptop.“An innovative new crystalline silica material with the white color literally woven in, like a fabric, in nine composite layers.ShareComplementing the new rose gold aluminum shell of the XPS 13, the alpine white glass fiber weave is elegant to the eye and silky to the touch. Durable as it is beautiful, atop its soft-textured lattice is titanium oxide for a pearlescent sheen and UV and stain-resistant coatings to prevent yellowing or staining over time. In fact, if you get a pen mark or other stain on the white interior you can just wipe it off. And with a heat resistance superior to metal, woven glass fiber also stays cooler to facilitate longer performance.Interesting fact: The glass fibers in one palm rest, if laid end to end, would extend for 117,500 miles, nearly enough to stretch halfway from Earth to the moon. Now that’s one giant leap.We not only worked to create the most beautiful laptop on the market, but extended that design ethos to its matching white power cords and USB-A/USB-C adapter. And moving from style, to lifestyle, we invested in sustainable recycled ocean plastics and bamboo packaging so you can purchase with confidence knowing that Dell is doing its part to help the planet.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XChLUIP8kDw&feature=youtu.beBesides its head-turning exterior, the all-new XPS 13 is better by every measure. Now, even more portable as the smallest 13-inch laptop on the planet, its stunning InfinityEdge display fits this 13-inch laptop in an 11-inch frame. It’s a full 30 percent (3.4mm) thinner as well as lighter, starting at just 2.7 pounds, making the XPS 13 the ultimate in mobility and durability.Running Windows 10 and powered by the latest Intel 8th Generation Quad Core processor, XPS 13 delivers superior mobile performance with fast booting SSDs up to 1TB. You can also expect the longest battery life of any 13-inch laptop, with almost 20 hours on FHD, up to 11 on UHD (Mobile Mark 14).While we made the system smaller and lighter, we were able to increase the performance by 2x, over the previous XPS 13 launched in 2015, and maintain the world’s most powerful 13-inch laptop in its class. So how did we do that? We have the most innovative performance and thermal engineering at Dell.“…we were able to increase the performance by 2x, over the previous XPS 13 launched in 2015, and maintain the world’s most powerful 13-inch laptop in its class.ShareWe developed Dell Power Manager to let you customize your balance of battery life, charging, thermals and acoustics and Dynamic Power Mode that intuitively delivers maximum power as needed, for such tasks as video rendering applications and advanced spreadsheets, while intelligently monitoring and managing system temperatures. This means the XPS 13 has sustained high performance while competitors performance declines with continued use, making the XPS 13 the most powerful 13-inch in its class (Tested by Principled Technologies in December 2017 using the Cinebench CPU (multi-core test)).As for thermal engineering, XPS 13 is the world’s first laptop built with GORE™ Thermal Insulation, the same silica aerogels that have been used in high-tech science and extreme engineering environments to diffuse and dissipate heat, such as insulation on the Mars Rovers and Hyper Velocity Particle capture in the Stardust Probe. This material directs heat out of the device, keeping your system cool while it works hard.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIHVfZX9tXANow with a higher resolution display, incorporating 2.5 million more pixels with 4K Ultra HD compared to the previous QHD+, the 100 percent sRGB display on the XPS 13 gives you great, saturated and accurate color, whether for graphic professionals or watching your favorite Netflix show. In fact, Dell knows people today use their PCs to stream content, so the XPS 13 also delivers an unparalleled immersive cinematic experience with richer colors and details, crisper and stronger audio, and reduced buffering, so you really can watch Netflix and chill.Activated by voice, touch or facial recognition, access to the new XPS 13 comes through a triad of biometric doorways. Log in with a look or a touch with the infrared camera and optional fingerprint reader in the power button for Windows Hello, or talk to your device from across the room, with four integrated digital microphones and Microsoft’s Cortana voice recognition capabilities.The new XPS 13 is available globally beginning today on Dell.com, Microsoft.com and at your local Microsoft Store, starting at $999.99. Dell is also offering an Ubuntu-based developer edition with Linux preloaded starting at $949.99 beginning today on Dell.com in the US, Canada and Europe as well.I can confidently say the new XPS 13 is the most stunning system we have ever created with the perfect blend of elegance and performance. If you are attending CES, please come check it out at the #DellExperience at the Yardbird in the Venetian or give me your feedback at @AzorFrank.The XPS 13 is just the first of many exciting announcements we will be making at CES 2018.

VR and AR Gets Easier, More Interesting with Dell

admin no comments

first_imgQuestions were asked in 2017 if virtual reality (VR) was here to stay or if it was just a flash in the pan like previous technologies such as 3D TV. I believe, we can say with some conviction, that this is clearly not the case and it is starting to be more and more pervasive in our lives, Dell has been involved in several VR projects last year across several different areas – media and entertainment with Spider-Man-Homecoming and Dunkirk all the way through to medical innovations in viewing MRI scans and helping with the rehabilitation of patients.With so many diverse applications and more springing up on an almost daily basis then this has gained a strong foothold in our lives. One of the perceived barriers to VR is the cost of the system on which to run it. Dell has also played a strong role here in driving down the costs of systems whilst giving a great experience – the introduction of the Dell Visor and new Inspiron gaming systems are allowing us to hit much lower price point than before.However, as with all things, we are stronger as a team and that is why the Dell Technology Partner Program is key to delivering solutions that are desired by our customers. You are a demanding lot – always needing the best performance at the best prices and well you should be – I was in the market for a washer/dryer and I wanted performance without compromise at a good price (and I wanted them to look good). We are all looking for the best we can get, with the funds we have available. It is always great to get things together as you then only have one supplier to deal with and gives a great piece of mind and so that is why we have made some improvements to give you a better experience.Right now, Dell is the first PC manufacturer to offer the consumer HTC Vive headsets as part of the customer shopping experience. Only with Dell can you get some of the best ‘Ready for VR’ PCs as well as the option of Dell Visor or the consumer HTC Vive headset in one place. These bundles join the existing HTC Vive Business Edition for those looking to develop new immersive VR experiences and have a business level support for critical projects.On the augmented reality (AR) front, we will soon be the first PC manufacturer offering an augmented reality headset from a leader in the space, META. We will have more news and details on that in the coming week and it’s a great partnership that adds to the very tangible benefits of Dell’s partner program. From analyst studies then, AR is going to be a huge driving force in industry – imagine seasoned workers passing on skills of the trade to trainees from the comfort of a warm office whilst seeing what the apprentice is seeing and then pointing out areas that need attention and talking them through it. Imagine looking at IoT sensors and information being displayed dynamically to show where issues could lie for troubleshooting and replacement.“…we will soon be the first PC manufacturer offering an augmented reality headset from a leader in the space…ShareThere is a careful balance in the industry currently where this is about to turn. The addressable market for headsets was deemed small and so quality content was not being developed. On the flip side there was not a lot of quality content and so folks did not buy headsets. Now that the prices have dropped significantly in the last year then this dynamic will change and everyone will benefit. So, we have talked about the consumption of VR above but how does this get created? With the new Alienware Area 51 desktops featuring AMD Threadrippper processing, partners such as Grab Games are developing fantastic new experiences better and faster than ever. Our friends at TrinityVR are not only developing incredible fun new experiences, but their content is another great example of how VR is transforming industries. With DiamondFX, Trinity VR is utilizing a data-backed virtual reality foundation to create a scouting and player development platform for professional baseball teams to standardize batting data across batters, leagues and countries – so not only is it fun but it’s actually helping improve preparation. It also helped me realize that I did not have a future as a professional baseball player…As we look at the new year we also have an eye on our partners and industries using VR/AR to improve lives. What we’re referring to as ‘VR for Good’ helps us rally some great influencers in the VR/AR world that are experimenting and actually achieving life-altering results through the power of these new immersive technologies. While the work we’re collaborating on in the healthcare space certainly yields unmistakable benefits, the work in the education space is equally important as it lays the foundation for the next generation of creators that can absorb the potential of VR/AR in a unique way. Mt Vernon school is a great example of a progressive institution harnessing the power of both Alienware and Precision PCs to cultivate new skill sets in young students.This week we are taking advantage of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to showcase some of the interesting work being done ‘for Good.’ Stay up to date on the latest Dell news by visiting our CES press site here throughout the duration of the show.We also have another look at the Dell PC technology enabling these experiences as we head to the Sundance Film Festival later this month – more on that in the coming weeks.Now I am off for four sleepless nights in Vegas watching faces light up with wonder at the new marvels that are being shown here – and one of those faces will be mine.last_img read more

Mexico vows to press ahead to favor state-owned utility

admin no comments

first_imgMEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico has vowed to press ahead with attempts to limit private power generation after the Supreme Court ruled against President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s attempt to block permits for renewable power plants. The interior secretary said Thursday that the court ruling applied only to a 2020 executive order, and the administration would wage a new court battle over another bill the president sent to Congress this month. The bill would give priority to more polluting, state-owned power plants. It is the latest chapter in a battle over private and renewable energy plants that were encouraged by López Obrador’s predecessors.last_img read more
