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.

Samsung removes UFS 2.1 from the Galaxy S8 spec sheet

Samsung has recently removed UFS 2.1 from the Galaxy S8 spec sheet. This has happened right after Huawei’s memory substitution scandal on the P10 and P10 Plus. To those that don’t know, Huawei installed different memory chips in the two variants, which resulted in users getting very different read speeds. Seems like Samsung has done the same thing.

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop

Microsoft announced today (2nd of May) their new Surface laptop, and no this one doesn’t detach. The new Surface laptop completely abandoned the 2-in-1 design of the Surface Book, for a more familiar clamshell laptop design. The new laptop runs Microsoft’s new Windows 10S, which is designed for students. This new version of Windows 10 is supposed to be more simplified, and only runs apps from the Windows Store.

Okay, so back to the laptop.

A tablet to replace your Laptop?

Back in 2013, Microsoft attempted to replace our laptops with tablets. This was done with the launch of the Surface Pro lineup, a device that is great for students, or even those who are continuously working on the go. They provided tablets with attachable keyboard covers, a stylus, and enough power to do the job. Soon many companies such as Lenovo, Huawei, Acer, Samsung, HP, Apple (iPad Pro), and many more followed down this path. Here is a list of some of those devices with the most interesting of all being the Eve V.

Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus vs. S7 and S7 Edge – is it worth the upgrade?

Looking back at 2016, the S7 Edge was hands down one of the best smartphones, with one of the best designs, which it still is to this date. Things have greatly changed with the launch of the S8 and S8 Plus now. With the introduction of the two new devices, Samsung officially came back swinging after their Note 7 demise, with what might be the best design for 2017. So is this new phone good enough to have users upgrade from 2016’s S7 or S7Edge? Here, I will list some features that give the “edge” to the new devices, as well as other features and specifications that might keep away from ever considering upgrading to the new flagship.

S8 Pre-Order Deals In Lebanon – a letdown?

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus pre-order deals in Lebanon have started and unfortunately, it is a letdown. Comparing this to the pre-order deals that started in the US right after the “Unbox your phone” event in New York, it does seem like a real letdown. The pre-order deal in Lebanon includes a 1-year subscription to beIN sports, 3 months subscription to Shahid Plus, and a 10 GB data bundle for 2 months (Touch and Alpha). The pre-order deal would cost you $799 for the S8 and $899 for the S8 Plus. It is worth mentioning that this pre-order deal is also offered by Samsung Levant.
