Samsung Brings S-Pen To Its New Chromebooks

This is the latest pair of Chromebooks from Samsung. Being one of the early Chromebook maker, Samsung is certainly no stranger to Chrome OS powered hardware, but the duo announced yesterday is different; they are designed with Google Play in mind which means, in addition to Chrome OS staples, you will be able to experience Android apps on these two devices too. While being a laptop/tablet hybrid isn’t new, it does boast a Chromebook first: a stylus. Now, that’s something refreshing, particularly because it is no ordinary stylus; it is a digitized pen, meaning your S pen experience on Samsung’s smartphones is now available on Chrome OS and this also means you get to enjoy pressure sensitivity when making its 0.7mm pen tip do your bidding.

Meet Notebook Odyssey, Samsung’s First-ever Gaming Laptop

Samsung isn’t exactly the name for gaming hardware, but that hasn’t stop this other South Korean electronics giant, Samsung, from diving into it. The company’s first-ever gaming laptop, Notebook Odyssey made its debut yesterday and boy, does it look all business. It even as a specially designed logo to show it does indeed mean business (think: ASUS ROG). Coming at 17.3-inch and 15.6-inch, Notebook Odyssey is, expected, Samsung kind of sleek and touting quite a few delightful features which include an advanced cooling and ventilation system known as HexaFlow Vent, 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GTX1050 graphics with up to 4GB VRAM, up to 300 nits backlit anti-glare FHD display, ergonomically curved keycaps, backlit WASD keys (15-inch model only), and customizable backlit color of individual keycaps (17-inch model).

Modder Wins As YouTube Unblocked GTA V Galaxy Note 7 Bomb Mod Video

Remember the hilarious game mod that turns the Stick Bomb in GTA V into a Galaxy Note 7? Yes. That video. The video wouldn’t have drawn much attention of the Internet if not for the take down notice by YouTube filed by Samsung Electronics America. The incident goes to show how petty Samsung is amidst what-could-be the tech blunder of the decade. As mentioned in a post last week, Samsung wasn’t amused a bit and had abused YouTube’s reporting tool for infringement materials to prevent others from watching this clear-as-day parody video.

Clearly, Samsung Is Not Amused By GTA V Galaxy Note 7 Bomb Mod

Since the fiasco of the exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the subsequent failed replacement, the Galaxy Note 7 has been the victim of a barrage of Internet memes with hilarity that could rival Kanye West sleeping meme which, you may recall, took the Internet by storm back in February. The Internet sure knows how to rub it in and if we may say so ourselves, pretty damn good at it too. While Internet memes provided us with much fun at the expense of someone else’s misery, one Grand Theft Auto V modder’s poke at the whole Samsung boohoo takes the biscuit.

Samsung’s Cylindrical PC Quietly Creeps Into Market, Cost A Cool $1,200

PC makers haven’t been thinking out of the box, like quite literally, until recent years. Previously, PC chassis is nothing more than an rectangular box, but that changes when the trash can-like (but sleek) Mac Pro came onto the market. Even then, it took other mainstream makers a couple of years to came up with their own designs that challenge the status quo – starting with the MSI Vortex, and now, Samsung has also joins the non-boring shape PC movement with its own avant garde ArtPC Pulse Premium Desktop Computer (DP700C6A-X01US), which quietly creeps into the marketplace without much fanfare, or press brief.

Galaxy Note7 Recall Due To Battery Issue Could Be A Lucky Break For Apple

You know what they say about one man’s pain is another man’s joy? Well, this is clearly the case with the recent debacle involving exploding (think, it’s more like melting) Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphone. With Apple due to announced its next iPhone this coming week, it puts Samsung in the position of the man in pain and Apple, as the man who could be benefiting from this unfortunate event. And likely, this so-called exploding Galaxy Note7 couldn’t have come at a better time for rival Apple. So far we have yet hear any reaction from the Cupertino tech giant, but I am very sure, Tim or someone would hint about this incident at the keynote next week.

Samsung’s New Gear S3 Smartwatch Inches Closer To Being A Real Watch

Samsung must have heard wind that LG is pushing out its new smartwatch at this year’s IFA Germany, because less than a year since the announcement of the round dial face Gear S2, the South Korean electronics maker is already pushing out the third Gear smartwatch, Gear S3. Still sporting a round form factor, the Gear S3 now takes on a more real watch approach in the looks department. Specs are, naturally, bumped up, starting with a tad larger circular Super AMOLED display coming in at 1.3-inch. Resolution, though, remains as 360 x 360, which means ppi sees a drop to 278, as compared to the predecessor’s 302, but I am sure there’s no cause for alarm.

Holy Smoke! Samsung’s New Galaxy Note7 Has Retina Scan!

It is rumored that the next Apple smartphone will not have an audio jack and possibly, retina scan to unlock your phone, and if those were true, then Samsung may have beat the Cupertino tech company at it.

And oh, it has a water resistant body also and an all-new more sensitive S Pen that works when watered.

Look, Now There’s Olympic Games Edition Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Too

Words has it that Olympic Games is no longer as prestigious as it used to be. In recent decades, such international games have been marred with rumor of corruptions, slow construction and other negativities, but that doesn’t stop businesses from wanting a piece of the quadrennial game. Not surprisingly, South Korea giant Samsung is one of them. Being the “Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Wireless Communications Equipment,” it is only natural that the electronics maker has at least one piece of limited edition hardware to show, which in this case, it is an Olympic themed Samsung flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition.
