Ara Wagoner 1 Mar 2021 0 Source: Samsung Almost two months after debuting at CES , Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook 2 is out in stores now. Samsung tried to rein in the extravagance and the premium price tag from the original Galaxy Chromebook and instead gave us a mid-range Chromebook in a premium package in this second edition. While I think it might be the most visually striking Chromebook that we'll see in 2021, I'm not entirely sure you should rush out to buy it on day one, and today's reviews seem to agree with my initial assessment.

Samsung is the biggest TV-maker in the world and it had a very successful 2020 as people stayed home and invested heavily in home entertainment. Its follow-up for 2021 is a TV lineup heavy with "lifestyle"-centric screens, expensive image quality innovations and, yes, a shelf. The company's Unbox and Discover virtual event on Tuesday covered home entertainment products already announced at CES -- including the Neo QLED TVs, a slimmer version of The Frame art TV , a solar-powered remote , a game status screen , an AI-based personal trainer and new soundbars -- but Samsung made a few new announcements, too. Here's a roundup of the TV news Samsung unveiled Tuesday: A new size of MicroLED TV, 76 inches , will debut in the future. It's the smallest size yet, undercutting the 88-, 99- and 110-inch dimensions already announced.

Every TV you can buy these days is oriented for horizontal, "landscape mode" images, but numerous phone apps work best with vertical images, also known as portrait mode. One of the most popular such apps is video-sharing social network TikTok , home of pasta recipes , happy animals and election misinformation . Samsung says most of its 2021 smart TVs will get a TikTok app in the US later this year, as part of the company's global partnership with TikTok announced in its Unbox and Discover event. The app launched on Samsung TVs in the UK last year and the company says it will come to other markets later in 2021. Every Samsung TV will get the app but two models are uniquely positioned (pun intended) to take advantage of vertical video. The Sero, launched last year in the US , is a TV whose screen can actually rotate from landscape into portrait mode and back, thanks to a built-in motor. Samsung says TikTok's video will "fit perfectly" on the TV in … [Read more...] about Samsung TikTok app for smart TVs coming soon to the US
This summer the easing of coronavirus stay-at-home restrictions means you might get to spend some time at the beach or the park after all. Even so, the resumption of normal life won't happen all at once . Chances are you're still going to be at home more than usual and, yes, watching more TV than ever. And now Samsung has a TV that lets you do it on the veranda. Dubbed The Terrace, the new QLED television starts at a hefty $3,500 for the 55-inch size and goes up from there. That's roughly four times the price of an equivalent indoor Samsung TV and 10 times as much as budget models cost, but for the outlay you'll get something designed from the ground up to survive outdoors. The Terrace is water- and dust-resistant, rated to IP 55 -- enough to withstand "contact with harmful dust" and "low-pressure water projected from a nozzle." For reference, the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra are both rated higher, to IP 68, but to be … [Read more...] about Samsung’s The Terrace costs $3,500.
