Palm Buds Pro is the brand’s latest attempt at staying relevant

Palm Buds Pro is the brand’s latest attempt at staying relevant

Perhaps in a few years or so, there will be fewer people around to remember that Palm isn't just a body part. While the brand still has at least one mobile device under its name, it no longer has the same clout that it did, especially compared to former rival BlackBerry. Palm, under TCL's stewardship, has been teasing a new product that will be launching under its name, with not-so-subtle hints at what it would be. It has finally taken off the veils and announced the Palm Buds Pro, which is too easy to call the black AirPods Pro.

Palm teases its return with AirPods-looking earbuds

Before smartphones that we know and love today came to be, there was already a breed of mobile devices that were already doing wonders in the mobile productivity space. Palm was clearly ahead of that game back then, but it, unfortunately, didn't survive the arrival of these modern-day pocket computers. After changing owners a couple of times and a few failed reboots, Palm has practically vanished from the market. Now it seems ready to make a comeback, but not in the way fans of the brand may have hoped.

Galaxy Buds 2 iFixit teardown hints at a disappointing trend

Galaxy Buds 2 iFixit teardown hints at a disappointing trend

It has pretty much become expected that almost all smartphones, especially high-end ones, aren't built to be easy to repair. They might be designed to survive a few accidents, but repairing them with less than trained hands has never been a priority. That practice has trickled down into the smallest of accessories that are often too easy to lose or too easy to break. Samsung's new Galaxy Buds 2 is no exception and may even point to less favorable changes in the future, at least as far as iFixit is concerned.

Galaxy Buds 2 unofficial unboxing reveals what’s coming next week

Samsung's upcoming products scheduled for next week may have little left to surprise us, thanks to leaks, but those are still all unofficial and, at times, shady.

That's exactly what's happening with what may be the least spectacular device in the Unpacked event next week, as the Galaxy Buds 2 gets unboxed even before Samsung gets the chance to.

Galaxy Buds 2 pairing process gets an odd change

Galaxy Buds 2 pairing process gets an odd change

Bluetooth might be the standard way for accessories to wirelessly communicate with smartphones, but the technology hasn't exactly been easy to use or even reliable all the time. In addition to connectivity issues, the pairing process between devices can sometimes be cumbersome and inconvenient, leading to the creation of technologies to ease that pain. Given that context, it's a bit strange that Samsung is changing what has become a standard process for pairing earbuds into something different and potentially more inconvenient for the Galaxy Buds 2.
