  1. device

    A contrivance or device may be either good or bad. A cheat is a mean advantage in a bargain; a fraud, any form of covert robbery or injury. Imposture is a deceitful contrivance for securing charity, credit, or consideration. A stratagem or maneuver may be of the good against the bad, as it were a skilful movement of war. A wile is usually but not necessarily evil.

    E'en children followed with endearing wile.

    Goldsmith Deserted Village, l. 184.

    A trick is often low, injurious, and malicious; we say a mean trick; the word is sometimes used playfully with less than its full meaning. A ruse or a blind may be quite innocent and harmless. An artifice is a carefully and delicately prepared contrivance for doing indirectly what one could not well do directly. A device is something studied out for promoting an end, as in a mechanism; the word is used of indirect action, often, but not necessarily directed to an evil, selfish, or injurious end. Finesse is especially subtle contrivance, delicate artifice, whether for good or evil. Compare FRAUD.

How to use device in a sentence?

  1. Kristoffer Lawson:

    The hardware that's on the devices is high end. I mean we're talking high resolution screen, we're talking battery, we're talking a pretty good CPU, GPU. Premium material is made out of wood so the device price itself if you compare the price of an iPhone is actually pretty low, but the reason why people are so excited about this is that it is really the first no hassle sharing social collaborative computer out there. So in the SOLU environment you no longer have to install applications, you no longer have to worry about hard drive space, you don't have to worry about back-ups, it takes care of everything.

  2. Abraar Karan:

    Right now, it's extremely confusing navigating the mask market ... there are no really great, cheap, affordable, scalable options that are reusable that also provide high filtration, that you can easily find, so, we're thinking about [delivering] a kit that includes a high-filtration mask and also may include some kind of a device that can help with the fit of other masks.

  3. Illustrator Joe Eisma:

    I personally am not a fan of fridging as a plot device, and I wouldn't have agreed to draw a book that had that as a plot element, i just hope folks will give Some Twitter users a chance to tell Some Twitter users story.

  4. Moira Gilchrist:

    You know, for example, a message may come up: 'Hey, you haven't used your iQOS device today,' have you stopped smoking, or is it because you've gone back to combustible cigarettes?

  5. Pete Cunningham:

    In addition to being the world's first smartphone to integrate thermal imaging it's also the world's most waterproof phone, you can take this to depths of five meters waterproof. It's also designed to be dropped from 1.8 meters onto concrete without smashing, so there's lots of other rugged credentials that means we deliver it in this size. I think over time you'll see the ability to reduce the thickness of the device as well.
