Huawei’s new MateBook X Pro laptop has incredibly tiny bezels

Huawei isn’t bringing a new flagship phone to Mobile World Congress this year, but it does have a trio of larger-screened devices to show off. First up is Huawei’s new laptop, the MateBook X Pro. Like last year’s MateBook X, it has an attractive design with even thinner bezels around the display — Huawei claims a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. The touchscreen is 13.9 inches diagonal and 3000 x 2000 resolution for a Surface-style 3:2 aspect ratio. As the bezels are incredibly small, Huawei has built the webcam into the keyboard of the MateBook X Pro, to avoid the awkward camera position found on devices like Dell’s XPS 13. Photo… Read More

How the Supreme Court Could Reshape Employment Law

During Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination hearing last year, then-Senator Al Franken asked the nominee whether he had read a recent New York Times series about the use of arbitration to thwart consumer complaints against corporations. Gorsuch said he had. “It made me think about a little bit of history,” he added. “It used to be back at common law that arbitration was disfavored because it was thought that everyone should go to trial, trials were the norm, Seventh Amendment and all that. And then in [1925] Congress passed a law called the Federal Arbitration Act … Congress expressed a judgment that people should arbitrate their disputes. It made a… Read More

Pepperell holds off Fisher to win the Qatar Masters

DOHA, Qatar — Eddie Pepperell survived a tense finish to win the Qatar Masters at the Doha Golf Club on Sunday for his maiden European Tour title. The 27-year-old Englishman held off a spirited challenge from compatriot Oliver Fisher, who needed a third successive birdie on the 18th hole to force a playoff, but had his putt from six feet slip past the hole for a par. Pepperell shot a 2-under-par 70 for a four-day tally of 18 under 270, while Fisher, who started the day tied for the lead, could only manage a 71. Sweden’s Marcus Kinhult (68) finished third at 16-under. The No. 154-ranked Pepperell made things difficult… Read More

What we learned in the Warriors’ emphatic win over the Thunder

There will not be a sweep. The Warriors, after losing in embarrassing fashion to the Thunder in the teams’ previous two matchups, found redemption Saturday, blitzing Oklahoma City with stifling defense throughout and a trademark third-quarter run to win 112-80. Kevin Durant led the way for the Warriors with 28 points, Stephen Curry chipped in 21, and Nick Young came off the bench and scored 16 points in what might have been the mercurial guard’s best performance since opening night. The Warriors will now head to New York for a week-long road trip against Eastern Conference opponents, but they’ll fly happy, knowing that they’ll no longer have to wonder if… Read More

Kurtenbach: Why I don’t think Zaza Pachulia intentionally fell on Russell Westbrook

I have seen all the evidence, and I have listened to impassioned arguments on both sides of this case. My verdict is in: Zaza Pachulia didn’t intentionally fall on Russell Westbrook. Now the Oklahoma City guard and the NBA’s reigning MVP wants you to believe that Pachulia, who has a reputation for being a dirty player, deliberately fell on his legs in the third quarter of Saturday’s game between the Thunder and Warriors. That’s an allegation that Pachulia has denied, but given his reputation, that denial isn’t getting much run. Nor, frankly, should it. His reputation as a dirty player is well-earned, and the NBA should take a long look… Read More

Fire Escapes: Great For Urban Ambiance, But Mostly Useless

Tony wooed Maria from one in West Side Story. Rosario Dawson belted from one in Rent. They became just another piece in a gritty urban jungle gym for the kids in The Get Down. Police procedurals regularly feature guys fleeing (or entering) by means of them. Fire escapes, the clunky metal accessories to buildings constructed in response to industrial building-code reform, have become an iconic part of the urban landscape. They serve purposes as numerous as their pop-cultural cameos. Part emergency exit, part makeshift patio, the fire escape has played an integral role in shaping the development of the cities whose buildings bear them. It continues to impact the urban… Read More

CCS wrestling: Gilroy in dynasty mode; Bells’ Jaquez shines

SAN JOSE — If Saturday night is an example of what’s to come, it’s safe pencil in Gilroy as the Central Coast Section boys wrestling champion for years to come. The Mustangs made it 16 team titles in a row with 373.5 points — shattering the previous mark of 297 — while finishing atop the podium 10 times in the 14 weight classes. “Gilroy is a powerhouse,” Bellarmine junior Victor Jaquez said. “They’re going to be a powerhouse for a long time and all we can do is try and knock them off. But they’re amazing.” Gilroy is ranked No. 4 in the state according to The California Wrestler in… Read More
