Orsted reports that the world’s largest wind farm, Hornsea 2, is now fully operational. The 1.3 GW offshore wind farm consists of 165 wind turbines located 89 km off the Yorkshire coast, which will help provide more than 1.4 million households in the UK with affordable, clean and reliable renewable energy.

The wind farm is located next to sister wind farm Hornsea 1, which together could power 2.5 million homes and make a significant contribution to the UK government’s goal of 50 GW of offshore wind power by 2030.

Hornsea zone, an area of ​​the North Sea covering over 2000 km2should also include Hornsea 3. The 2.8 GW project is planned to follow Hornsea 2 as the UK government awarded a contract earlier this year.

Orsted currently has approximately 8.9 GW of offshore wind power in operation, approximately 2.2 GW under construction and approximately 11 GW of dedicated capacity under development, including Hornsea 3.

A strange gaming laptop without a discrete graphics card and not at all with Windows. Lenovo is preparing the release of the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook

A strange gaming laptop without a discrete graphics card and

Lenovo is preparing a gaming laptop of the IdeaPad Gaming line, which, firstly, does not work under Windows, and secondly, does not have a discrete graphics card.

A strange gaming laptop without a discrete graphics card and not at all with Windows.  Lenovo is preparing the release of the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook

The full name of the novelty is the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook, and here it is already clear that Chrome OS acts as the OS. But the operating system here is just one of the oddities of this gaming laptop. The second, as already mentioned, is the lack of a discrete graphics card. What’s more, it’s not just some Ryzen 7 6800U, whose iGPU is so powerful that such a laptop could hardly be called a gaming laptop. Instead, Intel processors serve as the heart here: Core i3-1215U or Core i5-1235U. Recall that their graphics cores are very modest in their capabilities, so you don’t even have to think about some modern demanding games. Moreover, the laptop also has a screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, which creates an additional load on the GPU.

As a result, it is completely unclear why the laptop is gaming, but here even the design is the same as in other Lenovo gaming models.

As for the rest of the parameters, the novelty is equipped with a 120-Hz IPS screen with a diagonal of 16 inches, a 512 GB SSD, 8 GB of RAM, a pair of USB-C ports, a pair of USB-A, microSD, Wi-Fi 6 and an aluminum cover.

Price data is not yet available.

Geely becomes a co owner of Aston Martin

Chinese holding Geely has acquired a 7.6% stake in the British sports car manufacturer Aston Martin. The amount of the transaction is unknown, but judging by the current value of the shares, it could be about 66.3 million pounds (73.8 million dollars).

It is noteworthy that Geely managed to complete this deal only the second time: the Chinese wanted to buy a stake in the British company back in 2020, but Aston Martin then refused their offer.

The purchase of Aston Martin shares has already been confirmed on the Geely official website. The Chinese holding said in a statement that “Geely can contribute to the future success of Aston Martin.” “We look forward to exploring opportunities to work with Aston Martin”, said Zhejiang Geely CEO Daniel Donghui Li.

The Chinese have not yet disclosed the purpose of participating in the capital of Aston Martin, but it is obvious that the purchase of shares will open up access to technologies and developments that could later be useful for the Lotus brand, another British company in the Geely portfolio.

Previously, Geely bought a 10% stake in Mercedes-Benz Group AG and a 34% stake in the Korean division of Renault SA. In addition, the Chinese holding owns the brands Geely Auto, Volvo, Lynk & Co, Geometry and Zeekr, London Electric Vehicle Company, a London electric taxi and van manufacturer, and Terrafugia, a flying car developer.

By popular demand, a long-awaited feature has appeared on the Windows 11 taskbar

“Based on your feedback, we’ve added a link to Task Manager when you right-click on the taskbar,” Microsoft’s Amanda Langowski and Brandon LeBlanc said in a statement.

In addition, Insiders have received access to the function of rearranging icons in the notification area, however, not all participants in the Early Access program will be able to use this feature yet.

In addition, on the Dev channel, Microsoft has begun rolling out new customizations for widgets. It is now possible to show the widget board when hovering over an icon in the taskbar.

And on the Beta channel, they reintroduced a special version of the taskbar for devices with touch screens. This panel will only appear when you disable or fold the keyboard on 2-in-1 devices, that is, when you need to use only the screen.

It is not yet clear when these features will appear in the release.
