Companies will never stop trying new things when it comes to our tablets and laptops. While Apple could get bigger on the dimensions of the iPad – see below – Lenovo has added an attachment to its new Yoga tab. It might even be a horse, but the idea of hanging up your tablet is what’s new. We’ve seen kickstands on other tablets, the Nintendo Switch or, let’s not forget, the terribly conceived HTC Thunderbolt, where the charging port is placed so you can’t charge the thing when using the charger.
Lenovo’s 13-inch tablet shouldn’t have such problems, but the idea of suspension has some interesting use cases if you use your imagination. (A hard Monday, I know.) I could see people using it to guide the kitchen, with the table hanging on the tool hooks. It also means that your electronics won’t take up space on the counter and tomato sauce and the like will be less likely to be hit.
You can also, perhaps, attach it to hooks for hats or table top fasteners on trains or planes – depending on the dimensions. In addition, the tablet can double as a secondary display: You can hang it from the wall in your small work installation from home. Usage cases are here, but the device is expensive for an Android tablet at $ 680. I’m intrigued by the prospect, though – and it’s something I’ve never said before about Lenovo.

YouTube has been criticized for posting videos documenting China’s alleged abuses against Uighur Muslims in the country’s Xinjiang province. Reuters reported that YouTube took a dozen videos from Atajurt Kazakh Human Rights, and at one point rebuked the channel itself, for allegedly violating the site’s anti-persecution policy. The takedowns have followed reports from unnamed parties.
YouTube told Engadget that videos documenting human rights abuses were allowed on the site, and it was aware that Atajurt had no sinister intentions when showing ID cards. However, he argued that the rights group did not have enough “didactic, documentary, scientific and artistic content” to allow an exception to its policies, showing mainly identity cards, which break a rule against the display of rights. sensitive personal information.
