As c is reported in the current ie c’t 23/2020, a mutual breakdown of the chip manufacturer panasonic solutions (now supposed by nuvoton technology), however, ensures that according to current state of knowledge translating hdmi-2.1-cape receiver of denon, marantz and yamaha in certain commentators are unable to transfer videos in these ultra-high resolution resolutions to tv free to transfer.

Good vs. Better

Stuttgart, 17. May 2016 – my new bike is here, the ktm 690 duke r. Like my first duke back in 2012 i bought it because i happened to ride it, this time in gran canaria at the prasentation in winter. I didn’t know the previous duke r, and probably that was the problem: my light bike with more power and smart chassis! This was a revelation. In addition, the 2016 model comes with a tft display, which should be fine with me if it (unlike the speedometer before) remains tight, and an electronics package with schraglagenschatzeisen for traction control and the bosch msc (schraglagenabhangiger brake force distributor front. Also these things i have not missed before, because the duke by weight and ergonomics always remained well controllable on slippery ground. But the nuchtern considered small changes apart from the headlines make from the duke with r a completely different motorcycle.


Ktm, for example, is building a lower, narrower handlebar. The upturned handlebar ends on the standard duke never consciously bothered me until i sat on the r, where the handlebars fit like a glove. After that, the standard steering system did not work at all. That the standard brake has its weaknesses, we know, and they love themselves with the cheap mabnahme "other coatings" cheaply loose. Still, it’s a blast how the complete (master pump, hand lever, disc, caliper) one-shelf-high front brake system grips even on the new, not-yet-braked disc.

I haven’t weighed it yet, but it could be that what they said is true: that this bike has become even lighter despite euro 4 and sensor package. To maneuver this bike compared to all its competitors is a relief in the literal sense of the word. Then to ride this for a day on the little roads that stuttgart is surrounded by always shows me how hard others have it. Now the bike came naturally with 0 kilometers on the clock to me and is like the old duke meticulously broken in, so that they also on the highway at permanent 170 km. But as i said, i already know the engine, and secondly, even a single driver notices how much more usable torque comes from further down instead of raving at the chain with an axe, and that thanks to the second balancer shaft, you can suddenly see something in the rear view mirrors at country road speeds without having to hold them.

Weiterstadt, 23. July 2013 – some customers were already surprised: about years the seat leon was only available as a jarring variant. This will now be different: with the current generation since 2012, it will soon be a station wagon next to the funfturer and the threimorer sc "st" give.

More dynamic than voluminous

The sheet-shaped roof acts dynamic. At 4.54 meters, the st funfturige leon surgery around 27 centimeters. If you had used better with a steeper tail, the st could transport more – but the maximum volume should have stood below the elegant line in the specifications. With 587 to 1470 liters, the st is swallowing significantly more luggage than the funfturige leon (380 to 1210 liters) and the short-set exeo st (442 to 1354 liters), but a lot less than the vw-pendant golf variant (605 to 1620 liters to). Maybe the compact is a few nice gimmicks, which qualify him as a van for bulky cargo. So the back seat laths can be unfolded uncomplicated from the pack space. To stowed a very long charge, the back of the passenger seat can be transferred. A double loading floor helps on the one hand the order and on the other hand the comfortable loading and unloading.

Many motors and sports variant with progressive steering

Seat promises for its new combination of economical engines, which are already known from the funftural leon. The tdi and tsi aggregates with a capacity of 1.2 to 2.0 liters and a capacity of 86 to 184 hp works all with direct injection and turbocharging. The strongest motorization in the program, the 2.0 tdi with 184 hp, should be with an average of 4.3 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers, which corresponds to a co2 outlet of 112 grams per kilometer. For the sports variant fr is the adaptive chassis control dcc with the four modes comfort, sport, eco and individual. Optionally, a progressive steering is available for the fr. Depending on the steering movement, the steering control varies here. For example, while parking, less cranking should be of notes and to increase the driving dynamics on winding dashes.

The terrorism

To the annexes of the connection of the 11.9. Come regularly the warnings before new terrorist attacks. So far, they did not have themselves, no concrete stop planes were prevented.

Ten years is a special date, which is why security authorizations want to be particularly safe or use the anniversary to draw attention to the alleged threat and thus the need for security precautions with budgets, staff and legal macers.

Icann as a censor?

From the virtual strain prostitution to the online red light district?

The waves around the pro and contra of an internet top level domain (tld) .Xxx for the so-called "adult industry" have been high for more than six years, have led to a variety of controversial debates and are partly not subject to hypocrisy. But the project is just like the procedure an interesting case study about today’s understanding of internet governance. In the ultimate decision for the introduction of .Xxx had the state internet corporation for assigned names and numbers (icann) at the beginning of april at their 28. Meeting in lisbon the choice between plague and cholera. In a decision against .Xxx dorrhte her a million-heavy legal proceedings of the applicant icm registry. With a yes for .Xxx had emanated icann in an open conflict with governments. Icann has opted for peace with governments, but not only risks the legal impact exchange but also a new debate on its mandate and the role in internet world policy.

When icann published a call for new generic top level domains (gtlds), a consortium under the name icm registry and applied for new generic top level domains (gtlds) .Xxx. The applicant’s argument was first simple and obvious. The internet is full of pornography. It would be better if you could congratulate the providers scattered on many top level domains scattered suppliers under one roof and in this way from a kind of uncontrolled virtual strain prostitution make a more controlled online red light district. This was used for the youth protection as well as the billion industry, which stands behind the online sex business, argued stuart lawley, ceo of icm. On the one hand, by filters, the sex sides at end users who wish to be blocked, better blocked and the sex industry could better monitor what z.B.

On the other hand, the online sex industry was able to emerge from the schmuddeleck, legal farms were stronger accepted and you could do better against black sheep in the industry.

Ride impression from the ford fiesta st200

Ride impression from the ford fiesta st200

Goodwood, gb, 24. June 2016 – with more power, chassis fine grinding and some optical delicacies in the special model st200 congratulates ford to the 40. Birthday of the fiesta series. The edition limited to 500 copies should be delivered even in short. 4000 euro surcharge worth a serial st?

Ford brings with 147 kw / 200 hp more from the 1.6-liter four-cylinder than the "normal" st – therefore the designation. Much more important: the maximum torque rises from 240 to 290 nm and for up to 20 seconds are even 15 hp and 30 nm in addition to the overboot. This increase is not only readable at the performance data – at the sprint from the stand to tempo 100, the st200 is 6.7 seconds two tenths faster than the st – but also quite lackable.

More thrust, coarse elasticity

When accelerating from low and medium speeds, the engine develops after the power more thrust. This saves you in the city and on the road so some gear changes. For this purpose, the overall replacement was tensified at the st200 with respect to more lively from 3.82 to 4.06. When the little kolner is in rolling, in the city traffic, the third of six goes almost always fits, on uberlandfahrten usually the fourth switching stage of the clean to switching to switching. Little relevant in everyday operation: the topspeed rises from 223 km / h to 230 km / h.

Barcelona, 13. October 2016 – citroen’s most successful car haves c3. Since its market introduction 14 years ago, the small car was sold around 3.5 million times all over the world.

We have briefly tried citroens new air paddles with the smallest otto motorization.


After the idiosyncratic c4 cactus achieved considerable success, especially in the youngest clientele, citroen now expands his concept on the small c3. The most conspicuous thing is the so-called airbumps in the treatments, which should have already prevented in the cactus so many delle. As arranged at the cactus in three levels, the lighting elements are now: narrow led daytime running lights up, round headlights in the middle and fog lights below. The frontschurze labat the c3 appears high, chrome-plated bars from the brand logo to the daytime running lights, broader. Black b-suits suggest a continuous window surface, painted on request citroen the roof differently or with motifs. The tail prague now surrounding jerk lights, and the c3 is now a bit of edgy, robust and cheating.

Capture as "engine of the year" award-winning pureech aggregate is in the preserved power levels with 68, 82 or 110 hp, the latter with stop-start automatic.
