Galaxy Tab S3 review: Much better than I expected!

I ordered the Galaxy Tab S3 the moment it became available back in May but couldn’t really get around to writing this review, up until now. Before purchasing the tablet I knew exactly what I was buying, I didn’t really expect much out of this device. It comes with a stunning screen, so it was perfect for my media consumption, and an S-Pen, which really got me excited as I was looking for a stylus for note taking. After using the device for the past 2 months, it is safe to say that the Tab S3 has exceeded my expectations.

Terminator: rise of the machines – real world Facebook edition!

The machines have made their own language! Well… no, they weren’t actual machines, but rather chatbots. The news has been all over the internet, Facebook AI developing their own language to better communicate with each other. Seems scary doesn’t it? Not really… they are just chatbots (for now), so I guess the most they could do is talk us into extinction.

Virtual Reality – A beginner’s guide!

Source: Samsung

A friend recently contacted me with an issue he was facing at work. He needed help coming up with an idea that might help special needs children have fun and perhaps learn at the same time. Some people, myself included, recommended the use of Virtual Reality. Some might wonder about the benefits of using VR to entertain and teach special needs children. Well it’s quite simple, VR is already being used in Healthcare, clinical therapies, and anxiety disorder treatments. Nevertheless, each case is different, and we should be careful when using VR with children (I’ll leave that to specialized personnel/therapists). But when considering virtual reality and all the options out there, one is left pondering and confused in front of all the possibilities out there. The article is not only meant for my friend, but for anyone looking to try out Virtual Reality. The question to ask is a simple one with many possible answers. Which VR headset should you buy?

Google Assistant and Siri: An AI death match

During the first day of Google IO, Google announced that it’s launching the Google Assistant on iOS.

The assistant is available on iOS (USA only for now) as an application that will be able to perform certain tasks, as it does on Android, but with some exceptions to certain OS functions. That means you will be able to make calls, send messages, and play songs, but not set any alarms.

Users have to open the Google Assistant app to activate it, as the home button can not be remapped. Users can also add a widget to make the launching of the Google Assistant faster and easier.

How to save your parking location on Google Maps

On April 25th, Google rolled out a new update to Google Maps that allows users to save their parking location. The new update will allow you to save parking location, edit it, and share it with friends.

To save your parking location:

  2. Tap on the blue button that indicates your location
  3. Tap on “Save your parking”

Doing so will save your parking indication, which will be indicated with a “You parked here”. “Parking Location” will appear at the bottom of the screen, and tapping on it will allow you to edit your parking location (notes such as exact parking spot), take a picture of it, and share it with friends.

Google Assistant disappeared? This is how to get it back!

Google assistant began to roll out to android phones in the Middle East just recently, but not without problems. One problem that is common and that many people are encountering is that Google Assistant seemed to disappear shortly after being activated. Users would long press the home button launching Google Now instead of Google Assistant. Suddenly Google Assistant would disappear off the device without a trace. This is due to a change in the language settings in Google Now and probably the system language. The only way to get it back is to launch Google Now and go to settings, from there you should change the search language to “English”. You should also make sure that the system language is set to “English” as well. A couple of minutes after that and Google Assistant should miraculously reappear.

Bixby has been officially announced!

Today Samsung officially announced their new intelligence interface, Bixby, that will be on all new Samsung devices. The rumors about the launch of Bixby in the upcoming Galaxy S8 surfaced back when Samsung filed for the “Bixby” trademark at the beginning of this year.

In a press release, the company announced this new AI in the S8, as well as provided a bit of description on what this digital assistant can do (press release).  Bixby’s main competitor won’t be Siri or Cortana, but rather Google’s own Google Assistant that has been now made available to most android devices.

Will Samsung’s Bixby be any different from its failed S Voice? In theory, Bixby is indeed very different, offering more and doing more. But this all can’t be confirmed until the Galaxy S8 is released.
