It looks like Dell needs to call a plumber since there is clearly a leak at the company. This comes after Tom’s Hardware reports that Dell’s Chilean arm accidentally revealed details about the upcoming XPS 13 2-in-1.

The leak even went as far as revealing details of Intel’s upcoming update to the Y-series chip, the Amber Lake.

From the picture above, we can conclude the XPS 13 2-in-1 is actually a refresh of its predecessor, given the general aesthetic look of the machine has not changed that much. It still has the super-slim ‘InfinityEdge’ bezel which makes the 13.3-inch display seem bigger than it actually is.

The screen is a touchscreen (of course) and comes in two variant resolutions, the 1920×1080, and 2560×1440 variants. The laptop also packs a 16GB RAM, and the internal storage ceiling stands at 1TB. It is powered by a 46 WHr battery.

Looking at the processor, like we said earlier, the XPS 13 2-in-1 comes with 8th Gen Intel Amber Lake chip. The chip also comes in two variants; the Core i5-8200Y and the Core i7-8500 chip. That’s all the details that were …read more

Cisco Systems has announced plans to set up a $500,000 innovation hub in Nairobi this September. The company says the hub will be designed to tap the tech enthusiasts in the region.

The hub will take in a cohort of 50 developers per session, and will be holding different groups per year. There will be no pre-defined duration for each session; the length will be on a need basis. The participants will first be assessed for the viability of their digital innovations.

The Nairobi-based hub is just one of the three hubs Cisco is setting up across sub-Saharan Africa. The other two will be in South Africa.

Cisco East Africa and Indian Ocean Islands representative, David Bunei, said, “The innovation centers will be free for use by digital innovations and small medium enterprises. Here they will horn their digital skills, meet, and collaborate among themselves and get experts advice.

How to connect Android devices to your Windows Homegroup

We like to believe we are living in a digital world full of cutting-edge technology. Yet, we sometimes resort to using old ways of doing things simply because leveraging on the cutting edge technology requires us to do a bit of the technical setup processes, and that is just not something for everyone. In this case, we are talking about using Windows Homegroup to access files on your PC/laptop from your Android device.

It really does not make sense to take a USB flash drive to use for transferring files from your computer to your Android device. When merely using the Wi-Fi connection is much more efficient.

Connecting Android to Homegroup on Windows

First and foremost, you will need to install the ES File Explorer on your Android device. Then make sure both your Android device and the computer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Assuming you have already set up Homegroup on your local network, launch the ES File Explorer app on your Android device.

Then swipe from the left to access the Menu. Then select Network > LAN.

On the next screen, tap on Scan, and the …read more
