We were able to make some plays down field. "We have been telling youi that he is the best quarterback in football in the league. He was examined in a tent on the sidelines but did not go to the locker room. "That was huge", Brees said.

Dell also promises to include it in most of its new PCs this year including next-gen XPS, Vostro and Inspiron series. Dell has also been trying to push improved integration amongst its devices, which is why they have shown off a new app at the CES that syncs notifications and certain functions between their Windows laptops and both Android as well as iOS smartphones. To download Dell Mobile Connect, and for more information regarding the service, users can visit the official site here.

Called the Mobile Connect app, it basically pushes notifications from a user's smartphone to a laptop and even mirrors some of the apps on the display. Take note that the page states that Dell does not "guarantee that this app will run on all Android devices". For Android, there is support for Android 5.0 through 8.0, and in the Apple ecosystem, there is support for iOS 10 and iOS 11. You don't have to use Windows' People app to do so; instead, you can simply access your phone's contacts. The app uses both: Bluetooth for command and control, and Wi-Fi to transmit the bulk of the data. However, you are still forced to split your time between your phone and the PC as they are fundamentally different from each other, and don't really work well together most of the time.
