For Sale – HP ENVY x360 15.6″ for sale or trade

Hi,

Model No: 15-aq100na

I have a HP Envy X360 laptop which is less than a year old. It is the 15.6″ screen version which is too bulky for me. I’m looking to sell or trade for a portable type 13.3″ laptop of a similar spec such as the smaller HP Envy or Surface or something similar but still powerful enough for multi-tasking, slim line, SSD, Windows 10 etc.

I don’t have the box anymore unfortunately so it will only come with a charge cable. I will make use of another laptop box for delivery though. The outer case has a few marks from use which I can take a photo of if there is interest. The inside, including the screen is in excellent condition. It’s a really nice laptop with a great touch screen and speakers but unfortunately I’m after something I can use for work which is portable.

Laptop specs,

  • Folds all the way back on itself for tablet mode;
  • Touchscreen;
  • 15.6 inch
  • 240gb SSD Drive (I’ve changed the 1tb HD/128gb SSD to a new SSD drive)
  • Intel Core i5 2.5 GHZ processor
  • 8GB RAM

  • 2 x USB
  • 1 x USC
  • SD Card Reader
  • Aluminium body, silver
  • backlit keyboard (very nice!)
  • Bang and Olufsen Speakers
  • Windows 10 installed
  • HP Charger

Let me know if you have a portable laptop and you are after something with a bigger screen.

Microsoft Hackathon 2018 winning team: ‘Think bigger – and believe you can change the world’ – Stories

The Hackathon, a company-wide event in its fifth year, had more than 23,500 global participants this year – twice the number from the first Hackathon in 2014. Hackers teamed up on more than 5,850 projects this year, up from 4,760 projects last year.

Winning projects have led to successes, including Seeing AI, the Xbox Adaptive Controller and Learning Tools, just a sampling of the projects initially driven by a team’s spark of passion. Motivation to participate in what is now the world’s largest private hackathon often comes from employees with family members or friends who are coping with various physical hardships, and who can be helped by technology.

The Hackathon began – and has continued – as a way to engage employees worldwide in both a learning culture and in a growth mindset, and to encourage great ideas from people in all roles  across the company.

“We’re getting better at hacking as a company, and we’re seeing a higher percentage of the projects that come out of the Hackathon that have potential business value to our company, which is exciting,” Ramos says.

While many people think hackathons are “just for dreaming up flying cars or smart toasters,” he says, many of the hackers say having fun is the No. 1 reason why they participate.

The winning team’s project “is a product that is a natural for Microsoft,” Ramos says. “It leverages our commitment as a platform and productivity company, and it capitalizes on something that we feel is unique to us.”

It’s “also an idea that this team has a passion for,” he says. “There are a lot of great ideas in the Hackathon – and so, when a great idea also meets up with a great team of people, that’s a nice combination as well.”

AT&T Spark highlights big changes in networking market

SAN FRANCISCO — AT&T is revamping more than its massive network to deliver high-speed, low-latency 5G services to businesses and consumers. The company is also remaking its relationship with networking vendors.

At the heart of the change is an open-source-first policy that has redefined the role of tech vendors that historically supplied the service provider with proprietary hardware and software. Now, AT&T is telling its suppliers, which include Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung, they have to become software developers and system integrators.

“There is a place for all of those hardware vendors in this new ecosystem to become integrators, to become hardeners,” Amy Wheelus, vice president of AT&T’s Network Cloud, said this week during an interview at the service provider’s 5G AT&T Spark conference.

A hardener, which is a word Wheelus takes credit for, is a tech company that bolts features onto open source software, such as security and the management applications necessary to troubleshoot and fix network problems. Open source technology, such as OpenStack and Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP), is the foundation of AT&T’s Network Cloud, a cloud computing platform under construction to support future 5G applications.

Work like AT&T’s, which is also underway in other service providers’ data centers, is changing the relationship between carriers and networking suppliers, said Rajesh Ghai, an analyst at IDC.

“There’s a big architectural change that is happening in telcos today,” he said. “[And] there will be a huge systems integration and services component to it.”

The wish list from AT&T Spark

What AT&T and other service providers want matters to networking vendors. That’s because the suppliers’ largest customer base — enterprises — is gradually trading their on-premises software for applications running in the cloud. The trend is shrinking the enterprise market, while increasing the buying clout of cloud providers — such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft — and service providers preparing for massive 5G rollouts.

As a result, AT&T, Vodafone, Verizon and other large service providers “are going to be much more prescriptive in how we want [technology] to evolve,” Wheelus said.

For AT&T, that means commodity x86 hardware for running all Layer 4-7 network services, such as routing, load balancing and firewalls. AT&T is using ONAP to turn those services into virtualized network functions. Under the VNFs is the OpenStack cloud computing platform.

AT&T also wants makers of Layer 4-7 software to rethink the design of their products. For example, rather than selling load balancers for specific purposes, AT&T wants one product that it can configure for multiple tasks using open source orchestration tools, like Ansible and YAML.

“We don’t need eight different load balancers from eight different companies,” Wheelus said. “I need one load balancer, and then I fine-tune it.”

5G hype vs. reality

Is [there] a hype cycle? Yeah, maybe it’s a hype cycle.
Amy Wheelusvice president of AT&T’s Network Cloud

While revamping its network for 5G, AT&T is rolling out 5G radios and other infrastructure in U.S. cities. By early next year, AT&T plans to have 19 cities wired for 5G, including Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

What’s missing, however, are the applications that will deliver services that take advantage of 5G’s unique capabilities. At Spark, AT&T and its partners showed marketing videos touting the potential for better home gaming and entertainment and innovation in medicine and manufacturing. But none of the services exist, and it’s not clear how they will become a reality.

“Is [there] a hype cycle? Yeah, maybe it’s a hype cycle,” Wheelus said at AT&T Spark.

Nevertheless, AT&T claimed it is making progress on future products at its 5G development centers in Atlanta, Palo Alto, Calif., and Plano, Texas. The 5G infrastructure rolling out in the 19 cities is where AT&T will eventually test the services under development.

“We’re just getting standards-based equipment [for the cities],” Wheelus said.

With so much experimentation underway, no one can predict whether the billions of dollars AT&T and the rest of the tech industry are spending on 5G will generate a healthy return on investment. One of the first indicators will be the success of mobile services built for 5G-enabled smartphones, which analysts predict will arrive in 2021.

The potentially more lucrative services for businesses — the kind that is shown today in slick videos at 5G conferences — will take longer to hit the market. Those products are unlikely to be widely available until 2025, analysts said.

Amazon, Intel, NBCUniversal spill buying secrets at HR Tech 2018

LAS VEGAS — Amazon’s talent acquisition organization has more than 3,500 people, including 2,000 recruiters, and is very interested in testing out new technology. That is probably welcome news to vendors here at HR Tech 2018. But Amazon and other big HR technology users warned against being dazzled by vendors’ products and recommended following a disciplined and tough evaluation process.

“I think it’s important to stay abreast with what’s happening in the market,” said Kelly Cartwright, the head of recruiting transformation at Amazon. “I’m really, really passionate about doing experiments and pilots and seeing whether or not something can work,” she said, speaking on a talent acquisition technology panel at HR Tech 2018.

It’s important to “block out time and take those [vendor] calls and listen to what those vendors have to say because one of them actually might have a solution for you that can be a game changer,” Cartwright said.

A warning about new HR tech

But Cartwright also had a clear warning for attendees at the HR Tech 2018. It won’t help to make the investment in a new technology until “you really clarify” what it is you want to use it for, she said.

What has to happen first in investigating HR trends and new technologies is to “start with a clear problem that you’re trying to solve for,” Cartwright said. She illustrated her point with example questions: Is the problem improving diversity in the pipeline? Or is it ensuring that there are enough potential candidates visiting your recruiting website?

Endorsing this approach was Gail Blum, manager of talent acquisition operations at NBCUniversal, who appeared with Cartwright on the panel.

Blum said NBCUniversal may not always have the budget for a particular new HR technology, but vendors increasingly are offering free pilots. Companies can choose to take a particular problem “and see if that new tool or vendor has the ability to solve that,” she said.

New tech that doesn’t integrate is next to useless

Critical to any new HR technology is its ability to integrate with existing talent systems, such as an applicant tracking system, Blum said. She wants to know: Will the system have a separate log-in? “That’s always something that we ask upfront with all of these vendors.”

“If you are requiring everyone to have to go to two different systems the usage probably isn’t going to be great,” Blum said, who said that was their experience from some previous rollouts. If the systems don’t integrate, a new technology addition “isn’t really going to solve your problem in the end,” she said.      

There was no disagreement on this panel at HR Tech 2018 about the need to be rigorous with vendors to avoid being taken in by a shiny new technology.

We ask really invasive questions of the vendors.
Allyn Baileytalent acquisition capability adoption transformation leader, Intel

If Intel is going to partner with a talent vendor “it’s a long-term play,” said Allyn Bailey, talent acquisition capability adoption transformation leader at the chipmaker.

“We ask really invasive questions of the vendors,” Bailey said. “The vendors really hate it when we do it,” she said.

But Bailey said they will probe a vendor’s stability, their financing and whether they are positioning themselves to gather some big-name customers and then sell the business. “That freaks me out because my investment with that vendor is around that partnership to build a very customized solution to meet my needs,” she said.
