Audi Audi’s Q8 SUV is a fairly sophisticated piece of kit. Thanks to the wonders of platform sharing with the likes of Porsche, Bentley and Lamborghini, it has a chassis that punches well above its weight class, but in standard trim, it wasn’t exactly setting the world on fire with its 3.0-liter V6 engine.Well, we in the US may be destined to live with that somewhat pedestrian powerplant, but the folks in Europe are getting something with a little more spice in the new SQ8, according to an announcement made Monday by Audi — a 4.0-liter twin-turbo diesel V8 that makes 664 pound-feet of torque and 430 horsepower.”Wait a minute,” you may be saying. “Didn’t Audi have some, shall we say ‘issues’ with diesel in the recent past?” Yes, it did. Its 3.0-liter TDI engine was among those called out for diesel emissions cheating, but this new 4.0-liter mill is a different animal entirely. It uses a hot-V layout — similar to Mercedes-AMG’s beloved 4.0-liter V8 — for better response, and its turbochargers get further spooling help from an electrically driven compressor.In addition to this monster motor, the SQ8 gets a ton of other technological toys to help it hide its girth and make it more fun to drive. This is especially true of the top-tier Vorsprung trim — getting its name from Audi’s racing motto “Vorsprung durch Technik” or “Progress Through Technology.”sq8-9Enlarge ImageThe Q8’s pleasant but staid interior gets a little sporting up in SQ8 trim, particularly if you go for the top-tier Vorsprung model. Audi The Vorsprung models get four-wheel steering, active roll stabilization (made possible by the 48-volt electrical system that all Q8 models get) and a special sporting rear differential for its Quattro all-wheel drive system. Will the SQ8 handle like a 911? Likely not. Will it be way more engaging than a car of its size and weight should be? We’re betting yes.In addition to all the technological go-fast stuff, the SQ8 gets a whole host of interior changes and a few exterior changes to differentiate it from its more pedestrian cousins. The interior changes include sport seats with integrated headrests and in the Vorsprung model those seats get heating and cooling as well as massage functions. The rest is typical Audi S stuff — lots of black leather and Alcantara, diamond stitching, etc.The SQ8 will be available in the UK starting in July, but Audi hasn’t made mention of pricing, though we expect it to be, uh, “robust.” Also, we’ve had no word on whether Audi will bring some flavor of SQ8 to the US (likely without the cool diesel engine).

first_imgHONG KONG: Dressed in black, hundreds of protesters marched in silence on Wednesday to 19 foreign consulates in Hong Kong to deliver letters urging representatives to exert pressure on the Chinese President at the upcoming G20 summit in Japan. “We will urge the countries to pressure China at the G20, to raise concerns over Hong Kong, to defend Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy and free trade environment, and to protect the rights of their citizens to do business and to live in Hong Kong,” the demonstrators said, reported Efe news. Also Read – Shahid Afridi joins ‘Kashmir Hour’ in military uniform Advertise With Us The protest plan came after China’s Assistant Foreign Minister Zhang Jun said on Monday that his country will not allow protests in Hong Kong to be discussed at the summit as it was an internal affair of the Asian country in which “no foreign country has a right to interfere.” “This proves that China wants to avoid Hong Kong issues, and that is why Hong Kong people should seriously call on foreign countries to raise this issue that (Chinese president) Xi Jinping wants to avoid – to force Xi to review the current policy for Hong Kong,” the demonstrators said.

The campaign reached its original target of HKD 3 million in 10 hours, with over 20,000 donors. Advertise With Us The ad is an open letter asking foreign citizens to pressure their government before the summit, which will be attended by Xi and Hong Kong Financial Secretary Paul Chan. “Now we need your support: that our voices to be heard in your governments and consulates; that freedom prevails at the next G20 summit and beyond. We can save ourselves if we act now,” the letter by the protesters said. After visiting the 19 embassies of those countries with representatives taking part in the summit, the protesters are to join a rally organized by the Civil Human Rights Front at 8 pm. One of the coordinators, Jimmy Sham, said the theme of the protest will be “Free Hong Kong, democracy now.” The organisers will invite various professionals to announce a joint declaration in several languages and will speak about the relationship between Hong Kong and the international community.last_img read more

first_imgRanbir Kapoor, Katrina KaifReutersKatrina Kaif’s personal life is somehow like an open book for everyone to read. She has always been talked about her romantic relationships with Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor but she ended up collecting the scattered pieces of her broken heart twice. But it isn’t in anyone’s control but Katrina, even after going through a terrible phase, picked herself up and pushed through it.She has been in the entertainment industry for over 15 years now and Katrina is now in a position where she can create her own and make things possible. But her past is always the most talked about thing and Katrina, somewhere in the back of her mind, has been introspecting about her life decisions to become more patient and a better version of herself.So when Katrina was recently asked about how she managed to overcome her break-up and strike a work balance, she told Elle India, “Right now I’d say my life is 80% work and 20% personal. But it’s not in our control. Right now, there’s a lot of work happening. I take it as a good thing. It wasn’t in my control when my personal life got over.”She continued, “It’s hard to know exactly why things happened. But I have a different take on it. “Ok fine—it [the break-up] sucks, it’s terrible, this is the worst thing in the world, my life is over. Let’s sit here and believe this, even for just two minutes. Do we feel good about things? No.” But if you really believe in your god, your universe, you’ll feel much better. The reason I feel that I should say this is because there are young girls who might be listening to me. They might find something that helps them. I may see a person and think, “Oh, she’s got everything”, or “Oh, she doesn’t struggle like I do”. But you know what? You don’t know that. Everyone struggles. The most important thing is to learn. We are all trying to work and achieve, in spite of our fears and insecurities. You don’t wake up one day and discover that it’s all gone. You have to push through it.”After winning accolades for her performanc in Zero, Katrina is now gearing up for her big release Bharat opposite Salman Khan that will hit the theatres this Eid on June 5.last_img read more

first_img Could we have seen a glimpse of what we might expect from the next season of Mr. Robot? Maybe, if you count one line of dialogue.Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail took to Twitter recently to show off what looks to be a possible page from the show’s upcoming third season. In the script, lead character Elliot (Rami Malek) is speaking to his psychiatrist Krista (Gloria Rubin). When Krista asks Elliot what disappoints him the most when it comes to society, Elliot lets loose with this line: “Oh, that’s easy. Donald Trump was just elected president of the United States.”Season 3 script leaked pic.twitter.com/NioxetqkDf— Sam Esmail (@samesmail) November 11, 2016If this is indeed a part of the leaked script for season three, it’s a pretty boring reveal. Something related to Angela and her position within the series would have been a much more interesting and fruitful bit of trivia, but this is all related to Esmail’s political leanings of course, and not really related to sending fans a sneak peek of what could be happening next in the show.Esmail himself has not yet confirmed whether or not the fact that Donald Trump has been elected president will actually be a part of the show or just convenient commentary for his thoughts on the election, but we’ll see soon enough whenever the third season does eventually air.It’s been a long and excruciating wait already, and since Esmail has made comments in the past about what he plans to do with the rest of the series we’re all ready to get a move on and see what’s going on with Elliot and the rest of the gang. Previously Esmail has divulged that we will learn about Mobley and Trenton as well as Angela’s motivations. However, there’s still no premiere date set in stone for the critically-acclaimed show just yet. It looks like we’ll be left waiting for quite some time, unfortunately.

first_imgStay on target 8BitDo is best known for producing wireless controllers which resemble old-school Nintendo and Super Nintendo controllers. The company also makes retro-themed controllers with modern features like analog sticks and shoulder buttons. One such device is the N30 Pro Game Controller. Given the peripheral’s popularity, it is no surprise that 8Bitdo has recently released an updated model: the N30 Pro 2. Though not a radical departure from its predecessor, it features enhancements which make it a superior product.The N30 Pro 2 supports vibration and motion controls; two features which were sorely lacking in the original. It also sports new function buttons. With these, users can more easily return to the home menu, enable turbo functionality, and pair the controller with a bluetooth device. The faceplate sports a slightly updated design. There’s now an 8BitDo logo directly above the select button and the N30 Pro name above the start button. Two horizontal lines cut across the bottom of the controller where the analog sticks rest. We’ll get into how these features impact gameplay shortly.8BitDo offers four different designs for the N30 Pro 2. The ‘N’ edition is similar to the original N30 Pro and is inspired by the classic Nintendo Entertainment System controller. The ‘6’ edition has an all-gray body with a black d-pad, red select and start buttons, and colorful face buttons. This controller is reminiscent of the Super Nintendo controller. Then we have the ‘C’ edition, which is an homage to the GameCube controller. Finally, the ‘M’ edition is black all around. You can’t go wrong with any of these different types. They all look equally great.Like its predecessor, the N30 Pro 2 is a compact controller. Its rounded edges ensure you can play for hours without much discomfort. Everything from the d-pad, face and shoulder buttons, and analog sticks respond in a satisfying manner. Each has an appropriate amount of give that makes the controller feel sturdy and responsive. While the controller is relatively light, it doesn’t feel like a cheap piece of plastic. Plus, it’s just a gorgeous device to look at. 8BitDo didn’t have to change much, and I’m glad they kept the overall original design intact.You can pair the controller with the Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, and Android and iOS devices. The included instructions detail how to pair the controller to the desired device. As is usual with 8BitDo controllers, I had no issues pairing the new controller. The only slight caveat is that for PC, I needed to use an 8BitDo wireless adaptor. This is because my PC does not have built-in Bluetooth. I also had the choice to use the included USB cable for PC play. When it comes to Bluetooth devices, you’ll have no problem pairing the controller.Like the N30 Pro, the N30 Pro 2 is a bit too small for my hands. The diminutive size mostly impacts the shoulder buttons. Instead of being two distinct buttons, the shoulder buttons on both sides are actually one button split in the middle. The saving grace is that, since my hands are big for the controller, I’m able to rest my index fingers across the shoulder buttons. Ironically enough, the analog sticks work nicely despite how small they are. The tiny size isn’t a deal breaker, but a slightly bigger variant of the same controller would be great for a future iteration.To test the controller, I played Sonic Mania, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, and Super Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch. For PC, I played Sega Mega Drive & Genesis Classics, Doom (2016), and Monster Hunter World.Old-school games played like a dream. Whether it was platformers, side-scrolling beat ‘em ups, or fighters, everything controlled perfectly. This is really thanks to the d-pad, which feels amazing and is ultra precise. I was particularly impressed by how well the Street Fighter games performed. I pulled of Hadoukens, Sonic Booms, and Screw Piledrivers with ease. In fact, it was easier to play this game with the N30 Pro 2 than it was with my dedicated Hori Fighting Commander controller. The N30 Pro 2 does an exceptional job when it comes to handling classic and classic-playing titles.Playing modern games is somewhat of a mixed bag. Most of the issues I had playing games like Super Mario Odyssey, Doom, and Monster Hunter World were due to the shoulder buttons. This is partly because of their placement, but mostly because of the small size. Playing Super Mario Odyssey wasn’t too bad, but the small size of the controller and shoulder button placement did negatively impact Doom and Monster Hunter World. Using both analog sticks simultaneously feels awkward since they’re so close together. You can still play modern games with the controller, but I suggest sticking mostly with classic titles.The inclusion of vibration is something I really appreciate. I didn’t realize how much I missed vibration/rumble in the original N30 Pro until I tested the N30 Pro 2. If you’ve played almost any game in the last 20 years, then you know how much rumble enhances gaming experiences. The actual rumble itself is strong without being overbearing. Motion controls also work nicely. I had no trouble tossing Cappy around in Super Mario Odyssey with motion controls. You just need to take care when using motion controls. The small controller can easily fly out of your hands.The N30 Pro 2 is a brilliant upgrade of the original N30 Pro. It has all of the same functionality which made that device so popular and includes new features which take it to the next level. Unfortunately, it also has the same issues of the previous controller; most notably, the relatively small size. That aside, this is a wonderful controller I feel confident recommending to folks. Especially those in the market for a solid wireless controller to play old games with. At $40, you really can’t go wrong.Pre-order the N30 Pro 2 at AmazonMore on Geek.com:8BitDo’s New SN30 and SN30 Pro Controllers Pay Homage to the Gameboy PocketResurrect Your Old Gaming Controllers With 8BitDo’s DIY Mod-Kits8Bitdo Launches a New Wireless Controller for the NES Classic Edition Review: The 8BitDo SN30 Pro+ Is an Elite Nintendo Switch Controller8BitDo’s M30 Gamepad Is the Ultimate Sega Genesis-Inspired Controller last_img read more

The company reported net profit after tax (NPAT) of $139.87 million in 2009/10, up 266.5% from its $38.2 million profit in the previous corresponding period. “FLT’s results and achievements in several areas during 2009/10 have surpassed those of any other year,” Managing Director Graham Turner told the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). “Despite the fact that global economic conditions have not yet fully recovered, customer enquiry was at strong levels and more tickets were sold than ever before.”Mr Turner also announced that Flight Centre’s earnings before interest and tax totaled $203.5 million, a 665% increase from $26.6 million reported last year. ”Despite some ongoing volatility,” Flight Centre told the ASX that it expects further profit growth in the 2010/11 period.   Flight Centre has announced an ambitious profit target of between $220 million and $240 million (before tax) for the fiscal 2011 period. “While it is extremely difficult to forecast results at this early stage, we will be disappointed if we don’t improve on last year, given the momentum established in 2009/10 in most countries and most businesses,” Mr Turner said. “After successfully moving away from tiered supplier contracts in recent years, we have again sought fixed margins in our contracts globally for 2010/11 and have generally achieved our goal.” Flight Centre declared a final dividend of 44 cents.
