LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On January 7, 2014 Local Time, the world's largest annual consumer technology event - International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) opened in Las Vegas. Lenovo, which grabbed 50 CES innovations awards last year, showed up with 23 all-new models, among which the most attractive were the multi-mode product family represented by convertible PC Yoga 2 Pro and high-end products led by the world's lightest 14in Ultrabook ThinkPad New X1 Carbon.
Now single-formed devices have been unable to satisfy users' diverse use demands. From the perspective of enhancing user experience, Lenovo has launched a series of innovative multi-mode products, thus opening up new market space: in the laptop field, Lenovo first launched Yoga 360-degree convertible PC combining flip-open laptop and tablet PC. Yoga 2 Pro exhibited at 2014 International CES was upgraded on the basis of Yoga. Besides four use modes like laptop, stand, tent and tablet, Yoga 2 Pro also provides several control modes like voice, gesture and touch screen, bringing perfect human-machine interactive experience. In appearance, Yoga 2 Pro weighs only 1.39Kg, 10 percent lighter than Yoga and reduces to 15.5mm in thickness. The thin appearance enables you to handle it with only one hand easily. In performance, the industrial top 3200*1800 HD screen refines pictures. Intel's latest Haswell processor boosts performance while reducing power consumption. The nine-hour duration can satisfy all-day working needs.
In the tablet PC field, Lenovo has taken the lead in renovating the standardized modeling of tablet PC and launched the world's first multi-mode Yoga tablet PC. Its innovative scroll stand creates three intelligent use modes: reading, standing and touch screen; in the desktop field, upgraded smart desktop - Horizon 2 combines three modes: table PC, digital TV and AIO.
To achieve all-round breakthrough in the high-end market, at 2014 International CES, Lenovo launched new products like Beacon family cloud center bringing all-new family cloud experience through smart connection and wireless sharing, as well as VIBE Z, a flagship smartphone under the high-end smartphone brand--Lenovo VIBE. Among them, ThinkPad New X1 Carbon, tailored to high-end business people and frontier technology professionals, was most eye-catching. Through applications operated by users, New X1 Carbon's innovative all-new self-adaptive keyboard can perceive user demand, pre-estimate user behavior and switch among multiple keyboard using solutions, thus accomplishing the perfect combination of minimalist design and humanistic experience. With a resolution of 2560*1440, an increase of over 25 percent from the previous edition, the WQHD screen of New X1 Carbon may be rated as luxurious visual configuration, and the 14in screen embedded in the 13in case enhances portability and vision. Also, it reduces to 1.27 kg in weight and 17.72mm in thickness, renewed a record of 14in laptops. Additionally, New X1 Carbon inherits the classic of ThinkPad and can be matched by OneLink dock to extend functions; provides choice of 3G/4G wireless communication; and enhances fingerprint recognition security through NFC (optional); and features "Rapid Charge" with a battery life of 9 hours to better meet users' work needs.
At 2014 International CES, Lenovo also launched ThinkPad 8, the fastest-ever Win8 convertible PC of the ThinkPad family. The all-new high-performance server, desktop network storage device Lenovo EMC px4-400d, ultra-high-definition 4K display Lenovo ThinkVision Pro2840m, as well as Lenovo Y and Z laptop series and C560 AIO blending elegant design and advanced technologies in personal life have all achieved breakthroughs in innovative design and performance.
Lenovo has maintained strong momentum in recent years and led the global PC market for two consecutive quarters. In the broad sense, Lenovo ranks 2nd in the "PC + tablet PC" field in the world. Also, it has achieved fruitful results in PC+ transition and has become the world's third-largest smartphone vendor and fourth-largest tablet PC vendor. Lenovo's appearing at 2014 International CES with a wide variety of multi-mode devices and high-end star products shows its tremendous innovation strength and boosts industrial development.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
