    Samsung's latest laptops have a refreshed, modern look that makes them way more appealing

    2 monthes ago - By Business Insider

    Samsung announced new laptops at CES 2019 that finally look as good as those from rivals like Apple or Dell.
    If you've never thought about Samsung laptops as an option before, the new Notebook 9 Pro might change your opinion.
    The new Notebook Flash is inexpensive at $350, but it looks better than anything else you can get for under $500.

    Google apps are coming to Bixby

    2 monthes ago - By Tech Crunch

    Bixby took centerstage at today's big Samsung CES presser. The company has been pushing to make its smart assistant a kind of connective tissue across devices, and the the fruits of that labor may finally be taking shape this year.
    Third-party partners have been a long promised addition, and the company just announced a pretty big one. Sure Google's pushing its own assistant, but the company will also be bringing some of its top apps to Bixby. The list includes Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps and Google Play.
    The news follows today's earlier announcement that Samsung TVs will be compatible...

  • Samsung just announced a 98-inch 8K TV because why not

    2 monthes ago - By Tech Crunch

    TV makers love to use CES as a launch pad for TVs that they don't actually expect a ton of people to buy. This year's “eh, why not?” swing from Samsung: a 98-inch 8K QLED TV.
    “Wait, is there even anything to watch in 8K yet?”
    Nope, not really. Hell, even content natively shot in 4K still isn't as common as anyone would like. There's always upscaling (Samsung says they've built some pretty fancy, machine learning-based upscaling here) - but if nearly everything you're watching is upscaled anyway, you probably would've been better off waiting a few years and saving a small mountain of money...

  • Samsung TVs are getting Google Assistant compatibility this year

    2 monthes ago - By Tech Crunch

    Google continued its unstoppable takeover of CES 2019 by announcing that Samsung TVs will soon offer Assistant compatibility. The feature, which is arriving later this year, will give users the ability to adjust volume, change channels and switch image input.
    Compatibility requires a separate piece of Google Assistant hardware - like a Home, Home Hub or third-party smart display or speaker. No surprise the announcement doesn't include native Assistant support, but it's still a nice win for Google.
    Samsung, for its part, still has a lot of its eggs in the old Bixby basket. For all of the...
