Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

In order to maximise mobility - something that's more important than ever with this new tiling feature in mind - Microsoft teamed up with workplace expert Steelcase to create a system of rolling stands and easy-to-use mounts. This, and the fact that there's a smaller 4K option, is similar to what Google's been offering for a year and a half with Jamboard. Panay says the device is sleeker, more agile and critically, more affordable than its predecessor (although Microsoft hasn't yet revealed pricing). The Surface Hub 2's specially engineered hinge allows it to spin 0 to 90 degrees while dynamically adjusting the orientation of content on the screen. The one on the Surface Hub 2 takes some cues from those on Surface Studio and Surface Book, said Seiler, but is still unique, as it is designed for "dynamic rotation".

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard and Office 365 have all been optimised to run on the interactive whiteboard, and the new Surface Hub 2 also comes with 4K cameras that rotate with the device, along with integrated speakers and far-field microphones.

Today May 13 SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF (KRE) Rises 0.02%
A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. Looking at some moving average levels, the 200-day is at 55.5, the 50-day is 59.19, and the 7-day is sitting at 58.5.

Microsoft today showed off the Surface Hub 2, doubling down on the massive conference room computer concept first introduced three years ago, amid what it calls a "new culture of work".

Microsoft launched Surface hub back in June 2015.

Gap apologizes to China for offense caused by T-shirts
The company said it respected China's "sovereignty" and would implement "rigorous reviews" to prevent a repeat of the incident. Mercedes-Benz also apologized in February for using a quote from the Dalai Lama in a post showcasing a sleek luxury model.

Coming in at 50.5-inch with a 4K+ display, the new Surface Hub 2 boasts a handsome design with tiny bezels that offer an immersive collaboration experience. This will also allow users to share and work on different apps side-by-side. Imagine how much your team could get done being able to work simultaneously across Microsoft Whiteboard, PowerBI, PowerPoint, and a full view video call. The original Surface Hub advanced this mission, making it possible to join a meeting or open a whiteboard with one touch.

This feature is a truly magical experience. By announcing it almost a year early, Microsoft is possibly aiming to outpace its competition and rope in a few businesses who typically order such devices in advance.

Vote today in school board and budget election
Voters in the Mamaroneck and Rye Neck school districts will be deciding budgets for the 2018-19 school year Tuesday. In New Rochelle, the budget will need at least 60 percent of voters to approve the spending plan in order to pass.

Microsoft says that it will be testing the Surface Hub 2 with select commercial customers this year, and the device would become available for purchase for everyone in 2019.
