Michelle Obama to start an IGTV show

A Year of Firsts will highlight the journeys of students as they embark on their first year of college. "As a first-generation college student myself, I know how intimidating it can be to take that leap and pursue your educational dreams," Obama said in a statement. "That's why I’m so proud of these students. By sharing their stories, they’re helping others see that the ups and downs of the first year of college are something everyone goes through – and they’re creating a supportive community for others facing similar challenges. "Media company ATTN: is producing the series in partnership with Reach Higher, working with students to document their first year of school as they deal with issues like academic stress, relationships, finances and physical and mental health. The six-episode series will debut in mid-January and end in June.

Intel bridging the gap between laptops and tablets

Forget about foldable phones, 2020 might be the year of the foldable laptop. At this year's CES, which just kicked off in Las Vegas, Lenovo launched the ThinkPad X1 Fold, a PC with a foldable display. And now, Intel has followed up with the Horseshoe Bend, a concept PC with a foldable OLED display that can switch between a 12-inch laptop and a massive, 17.3-inch tablet. The laptop is based on Intel's Tiger Lake processors, which are launching later this year – and that's about all we know regarding its specs. This isn't surprising, since it's a concept device that might not soon (or ever) hit the stores, especially in this exact form. Intel did introduce one clever concept with the Horseshoe Bend: a detachable, wireless keyboard that "fits seamlessly into the device when folded." This is smart: no matter how nice the screen is, typing on it isn't nearly as comfy as typing on a standard keyboard.
