The Huawei MateBook 14 wants to be your new work buddy

Huawei leaps to the stage with this year’s MateBook 14 Notebook, fired up with AMD’s 4600-H processor. With a 307.5mm width and a height of 15.9mm, the MateBook 14 is one of the thinnest laptops you can get your hands on. It’s sleek and stands out with a premium look and feel. At only 1.49kg, the MateBook 14 is lightweight and easy to tag along where you can work comfortably. The trackpad is big and spacious, making it easier to navigate around. The 14-inch screen is incredible. It features 2160×1440 resolution, bright, and excellent viewing angles. The bezels are also razor-thin, giving more screen space. It also happens to be a touch screen, armed with buttery response of today’s smartphones. No need to navigate the trackpad or mouse for simple tasks, like scrolling pages up or down. The hinges are solid and sturdy. You’d need two hands to pry open this laptop and for me, that’s good. You can punch the keys at a rapid pace without experiencing any wobbling. One of the most important things I personally look into for choosing laptops, is the keyboard. Besides having sufficient and comfortable travel between keystrokes, it’s a personal preference to have that “snappy” feel to it. I’m sure I’m not alone in the world with that keyboard preference. And it’s a delight to report the MateBook 14 has that “snappy” feel in its keyboards, making typing an enjoyable experience. When working at night with the lights off, the MateBook 14 features a backlit keyboard. The MateBook 14 is only a new component in Huawei’s entire ecosystem. To bridge mobility and workflow, the Huawei Share allows you to transfer files between the laptop and Huawei smartphone seamlessly. So, if you need to hurry off, just tap your Huawei phone into the MateBook 14 and you can keep on working while outside. The MateBook 14 is a strong addition to Huawei’s laptop lineup. If you’re looking to get a solid laptop for work or for online learning, the MateBook 14 is worth checking out......»»

Paul Lee sees himself in fellow Manileno Fran Yu

Fran Yu was born and bred in Manila and played for University of the East. His journey has parallels to Paul Lee who is also proudly from the country's capital and suited up for the Red Warriors. Of course, while Lee starred for most of his time in red and white, Yu moved on from Recto and ultimately took his talents to Colegio de San Juan de Letran where he finally broke out. Still, a common thread ties the two together. Lee said so himself. "Nung unang nakita kita sa UE, para talagang naalala ko yung sarili ko sayo. Alam mo yung sobrang payat, parang butiki sa eskwelahan, parang pinagtatawanan sa court," he said in The Prospects Pod last Friday. He then continued, "Pero talagang tinrabaho mo then kitang-kita naman sa nangyari ngayon, nag-Finals MVP ka, nag-champion ka." Yu was reed-thin coming out of Chiang Kai Shek College. Famously, one comment from the internet even questioned where he came from - and, essentially, just who he was. In Lee's eyes, however, all that only became additional fuel to the now-Knight's already burning fire. And the "Angas ng Tondo" reminded Yu to keep doing just that. As he put it, "Kailangan, yung fire mo na yun, hindi mawawala sayo kasi yun yung pinakaimportante. Gawin mong motivation lagi yung mga nanlalait sayo before." He then continued, "Kasi yun yung pinakamasarap kapag, kunwari, nakarating ka na kung nasaan man ako ngayon. Lagat ng nanlalait sayo dati, mahal na mahal ka na ngayon." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
