According to Bloomberg journalist and insider Mark Gurman (Mark Gurman), the demonstration took place some time ago at the Steve Jobs Theater. About a hundred people attended the presentation.

Gurman himself says that this “significant gathering” is a “key milestone” ahead of the headset’s public announcement in June. The presentation was intended to rally Apple employees around the company’s new platform.

Thus, despite the rumors that the headset development team itself is urging management to postpone the launch for several years, the announcement will take place at WWDC in the summer.

Apple is making changes to its stores as it prepares

Apple is reportedly preparing to launch some new products. The company allegedly informed retail teams that it would be revamping physical stores in addition to holding media briefings.

Apple is making changes to its stores as it prepares for new product announcements

In particular, changes are made to the interior design of stores, marketing banners are placed, and old demo products are replaced with new ones.

There is no data yet on what these products are, but presumably we are talking about the new iPad Pro with OLED screens, which we recently learned will be ultra-thin, as well as an updated MacBook Air based on the M3 SoC.

The announcement is expected to take place on March 7, but it is not yet clear in what format. Perhaps fresh press releases will simply appear on the Apple website.

A relatively silent liquid cooling system without a pump Testing

Liquid cooling systems, like air cooling systems, also make noise. It is formed primarily due to the operation of the pump. The German company Wieland has developed a prototype of liquid CO without a pump, and there is already a review of it on the Internet.

The famous overclocker Der8auer tested this device, comparing it with the classic liquid CO from Corsair, and using the same fans for a more correct comparison.

It turned out that the pumpless system is quite viable. Yes, under maximum load, in this case in the form of the Cinebench R23 benchmark, the Corsair cooler did better, gaining 8 degrees (70 degrees versus 78 degrees). However, firstly, both results are quite good, taking into account the test 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X, and secondly, in games there was no difference between the COs at all, that is, there will be no difference in average loads.

But in terms of noise level, of course, the Wieland prototype is significantly ahead. That is, if you use some very quiet fans, the system as a whole will be relatively silent. Additionally, the reviewer says the system could be improved by, for example, closing the gaps on the sides of the radiator and using a copper cooling plate instead of the current aluminum one.

As for the principle of operation, we are talking about the principle of a thermosyphon.

Adaptive suspension increased ground clearance all terrain tires Lexus NX 2024

Lexus has announced the updated NX crossover in its home market in Japan. There are not so many innovations, and basically they are all concentrated in the Overtrail version, which is completely new for this model. This Lexus NX is the most off-road in the range.

It’s certainly not nearly as extreme as the new Lexus GX Overtrail, but the NX Overtrail should perform better off-road thanks to new 18-inch alloy wheels shod with all-terrain tires. By the way, due to this, the ground clearance increased by 15 mm. The crossover also received special settings for the adaptive adjustable suspension, due to which the car should shake less on uneven surfaces.

Externally, the Lexus NX 2024 Overtrail can be easily distinguished by its combination paintwork with black elements (wheels, grille, door handles, mirror housings and roof rails) and a body painted in Moon Desert color.

The Overtrail version is available for the crossover versions: NX350 (with a 2.4-liter engine), NX350h (a hybrid based on a 2.5-liter engine) and NX450h+ (a rechargeable hybrid based on a 2.5-liter engine). The power plants and engines themselves have not changed in any way.

As part of overall updates for all 2024 Lexus NXs, engineers retuned the suspension for greater ride and comfort, and increased chassis rigidity by adding additional bracing. The sound insulation has also been improved. All models receive illuminated rear door handles, two USB-C ports on the center console, and the 14-inch touchscreen media system, previously only available on the top-end NX450h+, is now standard on the NX250 and NX350h models.
