2-in-1 PC

A 2-in-1 PC known as a 2-in-1 tablet, 2-in-1 laptop, 2-in-1 detachable, tabtop, laptop tablet, or 2-in-1, is a portable computer that has features of both tablets and laptops. Before the emergence of 2-in-1s and their denomination as such, technology journalists used the words convertible and hybrid to denominate pre-2-in-1 portable computers: Convertible denominated those that featured a mechanism to conceal the physical keyboard by sliding or rotating it behind the chassis, hybrid those that featured a hot-pluggable, physical keyboard. Both pre-2-in-1 convertibles and hybrids were crossover devices that combined features of both tablets and laptops; the 2-in-1 PCs comprise a category, a sibling to both the pre-2-in-1 convertibles and hybrids. Models of 2-in-1 PC were each denominated either a 2-in-1 convertible or 2-in-1 detachable and despite borrowing the terminology of the pre-2-in-1 PCs, the two species of 2-in-1 PCs are distinct from the two species of pre-2-in-1 PCs because 2-in-1 PCs have additional features of traditional laptops.

2-in-1 PCs consist of portable computer components within light and thin chassis, exemplify technological convergence. They are convenient for media consumption and non-intensive tasks in tablet mode yet useful for content production in laptop mode. 2-in-1 convertibles are tablets with the ability to rotate, fold, or slide the keyboard behind the display. On most devices, the hinge is situated at the keyboard junction. However, the Dell XPS Duo is unique in that the display sits in a frame that allows the screen to be spun. 2-in-1 detachable are devices with detachable keyboards. In most cases, the keyboard part provides few, if any, additional features. However, the keyboards of some detachable provide additional features similar to those of a docking station such as additional I/O-ports and supplementary batteries. For instance, the Surface Book can leverage the discrete GPU in the keyboard upon the keyboard's connection; when connected to the keyboard, the display of the detachable can either be free-standing on the hinge or require external support in the form of a kickstand.

Novel ways of providing external support include the bending frame and locking mechanism of the HP Spectre x2. Though the keyboard is bundled with the purchase of a 2-in-1 detachable, it is deemed an optional accessory by manufacturers in order to minimize the starting price of a device. In such cases the 2-in-1 detachable is displayed with its complementary keyboard in advertisements and promotional materials; this is true for all devices of the Surface Pro lines. 2-in-1s fall in the category of hybrid or convertible tablets but are distinct in that they run a full-featured desktop operating system and have I/O ports found on laptops, such as USB and DisplayPort. The most prominent element is the keyboard that allows the 2-in-1 to provide the ergonomic typing experience of a laptop. While 2-in-1s fall in a category distinct from laptops, they loosely parallel the traits of the Ultrabook device category, having light and thin chassis, power-efficient CPUs, long battery lives, they are distinguished from traditional Ultrabooks by the inclusion of a touchscreen display and a concealable or detachable keyboard.

The earliest device that can be considered a 2-in-1 detachable is the Compaq Concerto from 1993. It came preinstalled with Windows 3.1 and Windows for PEN, had a cabled detachable keyboard, battery powered stylus. Mainstream attention for 2-in-1 PCs was not achieved until nearly two decades when many manufactures showed devices, at that time referred to as "hybrid" devices, at CES 2011. While Packard Bell, Acer and HP all had Microsoft Windows based 2-in-1s by 2011, Lenovo released the first well reviewed Windows 2-in-1: The X220t variant of the ThinkPad X220; the 13-inch device included a digital stylus housed within the chasis, somewhat ruggedized construction, a multi-touch screen with a twist and fold hinge. Microsoft started its own line of 2-in-1s with the introduction of the Surface Pro series, the first of, released in February 2013, it had a 10.6-inch display, Intel Core i5 CPU, included the Pro Pen stylus and a detachable keyboard that doubled as a protective screen cover. In 2015 Microsoft introduced the Surface Book series, similar to the Surface Pro series, features a detachable keyboard cover and Surface Pen stylus.

Samsung entered the 2-in-1 PC market with the release of the Windows-based Samsung Galaxy TabPro S, released in March 2016. It had a 12-inch display, Intel Core m3 CPU, a first-party keyboard attachment, a TabPro Pen, its successor, the Galaxy Book, was released in February 2017. Coming in a 10.6-inch model and a 12-inch model, the Galaxy Book has an improved detachable keyboard and include an S Pen. Google entered the 2-in-1 market after it announced the Pixel Slate in October 2018, it features a 12.3-inch display. It includes two USB-C ports; the featured Pixel Keyboard and Pixelbook Pen are sold separately. Since 2012, a number of other prominent laptop manufacturers, such as Dell and Sony have begun releasing their own 2-in-1s. While the iPad Pro has optional Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil accessories, Apple has yet to release a true 2-in-1 PC with a full desktop OS, citing the quote below. In April 2012 Apple's CEO Tim Cook, answering to the question of the researcher Anthony Sacconaghi about a possible hybrid of iPad and MacBook, compared a 2-in-1 to a combination of "a toaster and a refrigerator" that "doesn’t please anyone": 2-in-1s are natively supported by the Windows 8, 8.1 and 10, Chrome OS operatin

Crab ice cream

Crab ice cream is a flavour of ice cream with crab. Invented by the Japanese and known to them as Kani aisu, it is described as having a sweet taste, it is offered in some food establishments ice cream parlours, such as Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck restaurant, the Venezuelan Coromoto, which offers the largest number of ice cream flavours in the world. Crab ice cream is a Japanese creation; the island of Hokkaido, Japan, is known for manufacturing crab ice cream. According to Heston Blumenthal's recipe for crab ice cream, it is made by freezing for half an hour a mixture of stock made from crab, with an alternative being prawns, a little milk powder, a dozen yolks of egg, some sugar. Crab ice cream is described to be sweet in flavour to the majority of people, although some may taste otherwise as it has been proven that taste is affected by the brain's expectations. Blumenthal has compared crab ice cream to "frozen crab bisque". Crab ice cream is made by Heston Blumenthal, a renowned chef and owner of the Fat Duck, in Berkshire, England, as a dessert item on his restaurant's food menu, although he admits that it is difficult to convince customers to try it.

He made it once for testing by food scientists in June 2011, for an ice cream occasion at the Royal Institution in June 2001. Heladería Coromoto, a Mérida-based ice cream shop, which has the biggest variety of ice cream sold in the world, offers "Cream of Crab" as one of its ice cream flavours. In its country of origin, crab ice cream is marketed in Japanese as Kani aisu. A Delaware-based ice cream parlor once attempted to make their own crab ice cream, but the end product was deemed a failure. List of ice cream flavors List of crab dishes List of seafood dishes

Hadith of Gabriel

In Sunni Islam, the Hadith of Gabriel is the single most important hadith, of the last prophet of Islam. Its narrative contains the best summary of the core of Islam: Islām, described with the "Five Pillars of Islam," Īmān, described with the "Six Articles of Faith," Iḥsān, or "doing what is beautiful," and al-Sā’ah, or The Hour, not described, but signs are given; this hadith is found in both the Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī and the Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim collections and is known to express the religion of Islam in a nutshell. Muslim scholars named this hadith "the Hadith of Gabriel" because the archangel Gabriel appears to the Prophet and those around him in a human form. Narrated by Abu Huraira, one of the Prophet's closest Sahabah: One day while the Prophet was sitting in the company of some people, Gabriel came and asked, "What is faith?" Allah's Messenger replied,'Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, meeting with Him, His Apostles, to believe in Resurrection." He further asked, "What is Islam?" Allah's Messenger replied, "To worship Allah Alone and none else, to offer prayers to pay the compulsory charity and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan."

He further asked, "What is Ihsan?" Allah's Messenger replied, "To worship Allah as if you see Him, if you cannot achieve this state of devotion you must consider that He is looking at you." He further asked, "When will the Hour be established?" Allah's Messenger replied, "The answerer has no better knowledge than the questioner. But I will inform you about its portents; when a slave gives birth to her master. When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings, and the Hour is one of five things. The Prophet recited: "Verily, with Allah is the knowledge of the Hour--." That man left and the Prophet asked his companions to call him back, but they could not see him. The Prophet said, "That was Gabriel who came to teach the people their religion." Abu'Abdullah said: He considered all that as a part of faith. From'Umar', there is that he said, "While we were sitting with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless with him and grant him peace, one day a man came up to us whose clothes were white, whose hair was black, upon whom traces of traveling could not be seen, whom none of us knew, who sat down knee-to-knee with the Prophet, may Allah bless with him and grant him peace.

Said,'Muhammad, tell me about Islam.' said,'Islam is that you witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, you establish the prayer, you give the Zakat, you fast Ramadan, you perform the hajj to the House if you are able.' He said,'You have told the truth,' and we were amazed at him asking him and telling him that he told the truth. He said,'Tell me about Iman.' He said,'That you affirm Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, the Last Day, that you affirm the Decree, the good of it and the bad of it.' He said,'You have told the truth.' He said,'Tell me about Ihsan.' He said,'That you worship Allah as if you see Him, for if you don't see Him truly He sees you.' He said,'Tell me about the Hour.' He said,'The one asked about it knows no more than the one asking.' He said,'Then tell me about its signs.' He said,'That the female slave should give birth to her mistress, you see poor, barefoot shepherds of sheep and goats competing in making tall buildings.'

He went away, I remained some time. He asked,'Umar, do you know who the questioner was?' I said,'Allah and His Messenger know best.' He said,'He was Jibril who came to you to teach you your deen'." Muslim narrated it
