Just Get a Damn Set-Top Box and Free Yourself of Your TV's Crap Software

Planned obsolescence is annoying regardless of which smart gadget you’re talking about, but it particularly grinds my gears when it comes to TVs. Sure, you don’t have to destroy your wallet for a decent 4K smart TV anymore—but I know plenty of friends and gadget nerds who do shell out for something a ‘lil nicer for…Read more...

I Sure Hope Samsung's Rumored Bean Buds Are Real

'Quit Trying To Make Quibi Happen'

Devindra Hardawar of Engadget, writing about Quibi, a new streaming service that launched today: Nobody asked for Quibi. Nobody, that is, except for Jeffrey Katzenberg, the founder of Dreamworks Pictures and famed Hollywood producer. Where other mobile video startups failed, like Samsung's long-forgotten Milk Video and Verizon's own Go90 (RIP), Katzenberg figured he could succeed by pouring money (somehow he's raised $1.75 billion so far!) into top talent and well produced shows. At CES in Janua...

Galaxy Chromebook reviews

Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook is unusually fancy and handsome for a platform usually associated with cheap, low-end machines, at least outside of Google's own flag-carrier devices. How does it stack up? The Verge says its no good because despite the pretty case, high-end hardware and 4k screen, it's unreliable and has poor battery life. Engadget thinks it's likeable enough, but also complains of the poor power management. Wired, however, gives it 8/10, describing it as "everything you could ever w...

How to record audio on an Android using a built-in app on your device

You can record audio on Android using an easy-to-use built-in audio recording app on most devices, though the exact app tends to differ device to device.

I'm a loyal iPhone user, but I switched to Samsung's Galaxy S20 and found 5 things I liked better compared to the iPhone 11 Pro (AAPL)

I typically use an iPhone, but after temporarily switching to Samsung's Galaxy S20 I found several advantages that Samsung offers over Apple. Samsung's new phone stands out for its ultra-fast display, edge-to-edge design, and amusing camera features. Plus, like all Android phones, the Galaxy S20's software generally offers more customization and personalization. Some of those perks come at a trade-off, however. The Galaxy S20 has a more subtle camera cutout than the iPhone, but Apple's facial ...

The teardown was done by XYZone, a Shenzhen-based company that disassembles smartphones and identifies the suppliers of their components.

Samsung will buy back your Galaxy S20 in 2 years for half of the original price, which is more than you'll get with most trade-in offers

  Samsung's Galaxy S20 buy-back program means you'll get 50% of what you paid for the phone if you return it to Samsung within two years.  It makes sense if you plan on keeping your Galaxy S20 for two years before upgrading to a new Samsung phone. If you get a new phone every year, you'll get a better deal by trading in your phone with Samsung instead.  For the buy-back program, you have to buy the phone directly from Samsung, and it has to be in good shape when you return it.  Samsung has s...

Apple is reportedly worried that people won't have the money to buy new iPhones this year, and it's an ominous sign of what's to come for people's finances (AAPL)

Apple may be considering delaying the iPhone 12's launch because it's concerned that consumer demand for smartphone upgrades may be low following the coronavirus outbreak and economic fallout. That's according to a report from Nikkei Asian Review, which was published last week. Apple's reliance on China means it's likely been bracing for a worst-case scenario far earlier than most, and its moves have largely preempted broader changes and developments. The iPhone 12 is expected to be Apple's bi...

Samsung Display To End All LCD Production By End 2020
