Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to feature an in-screen fingerprint reader

  Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to feature an in-screen fingerprint reader With the Galaxy S9 now fully unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2018, the mobile industry is now already looking forward to Samsung's next flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 9 .What's more, information about the new Note's current status has already started leaking, with a particularly juicy leak pointing towards a fingerprint reader in the display.

That's exactly the case with its flagship board, the Raspberry Pi 3 , which has today been upgraded to offer more speed in every sense of the word. For projects requiring faster networking speeds, the Model B+ delivers dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connectivity and gigabit ethernet over USB

You’ve just received a brand new Raspberry Pi 3 – the latest, most powerful version The Raspberry Pi 3 : Faster , Better, with Perhaps the biggest draw for the Raspberry Pi 3 is the inclusion of wireless networking and Finally, there’s also the huge benefit that the built-in wireless connectivity delivers .

The company typically waits over a year to refresh its range, and even then improvements can be very subtle. That's exactly the case with its flagship board, the Raspberry Pi 3, which has today been upgraded to offer more speed in every sense of the word.

The key improvements on the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ are its processor and networking capabilities. The Model B+ sports a 1.4GHz quad-core Broadcom BCM2837B0 processor (compared to the 1.2GHz BCM2837 chip in the Pi 3), which the company says has come as a result of improved power integrity and thermal design.

Raspberry Pi that became the third highest selling computers with over 14 million units sold. The latest Model B+ offers 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connectivity for projects that require fast networking speeds.

With upgraded processing power and improved network connectivity, this new iteration continues the legacy of affordable computing for all ages. On the networking side of things, Raspberry Pi is introducing a few enhancements that DIYers should notice. The Model B+ delivers dual-band Wi-Fi

For projects requiring faster networking speeds, the Model B+ delivers dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connectivity and gigabit ethernet over USB 2.0, which supports up to 300Mbps (three times the speed of previous boards). Bluetooth 4.2 and Bluetooth Low Energy support make it easier for tinkerers looking to create their own IoT hubs or interact with other devices in their smart home.

Lastly, the Model B+ comes complete with Power over Ethernet (PoE), which hasn't officially been supported until now. Component manufacturers have created their own workarounds, but the Raspberry Pi Foundation will launch its own dedicated PoE HAT to make use of it in the near future.

As expected, the Model B+ fits the same dimensions as its predecessors, allowing hobbyists to utilise peripherals and cases that they already own. The price remains the same too, meaning it'll cost $35/£30 at the usual suppliers.

656ft power station chimney brought down in controlled explosion .
The Kingsnorth demolition was delayed from earlier in the month due to snow. Construction of the oil-fired power station begin in 1963. The site was commissioned in the early 1970s and was the only dual-fired power station in the country able to burn oil and coal. It was capable of producing 2000MW of electricity – enough to power more than 1.5 million homes.The chimney removed steam and other gases from the plant’s boilers and became a familiar landmark on the Kent landscape. When the site closed in December 2012, it had operated for 42 years and generated 310TWh of power.
