Samsung FlexWash+FlexDry laundry system mixes 4 machines in 1

Will CES 2017 bring the Mac accessories Apple can’t be bothered to make?

CES 2017 is almost upon us, and while the annual Consumer Electronics Show will be dominated by vast televisions and, increasingly, car tech, it's the smaller gadgets I'm most looking forward to.

Samsung flaunts UHQ 32-bit audio tech in new speakers

Samsung may have just recently acquired the HARMAN half of the Harman Kardon pair, but we won't be seeing the fruits of that investment just yet.

Make no mistake, however, as these are just as buzzword-filled as any Harman Kardon product. For 2017, it seems that Samsung's buzzword will be "ultra high quality 32-bit audio" that aims to trump the current "hi-res audio" hype.
