See Galaxy S8 release details in top-end renders

On the Galaxy S8 front this morning a series of images were "leaked" by a fellow by the name of Veniamin Geskin. These images show the Samsung Galaxy S8 in all its massive glory, complete with a full lack of a home button up front. This version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 would also be sporting two display "edges" flowing down its side, not unlike the Samsung Galaxy Edge lines of the past.

So far, CES 2017 is about refinement

While generally we see a collection of new or otherwise daring devices at the Consumer Electronics Show, CES 2017 is about improving what works. This can be seen best in the collections of devices shown by Acer, Lenovo, and HP, the lot of which revealed a set of notebooks, displays, and keyboards improved incrementally from years past. It's as if the entirety of the PC industry has finally caught Apple "Just a bit better each time" fever.

The Google Pixel shipping nightmare (and Verizon’s XL role)

Google and Verizon are not doing a very good job handling supply and demand with the Pixel. In a Reddit thread 2,888 messages long (at publication time), potential Google Pixel smartphone users discuss delays in shipment and inconsistencies in stories from Google and Verizon. This situation is unique in that Verizon is selling the same phone as Google is supplying AND selling.

iPhone 7 cuts MAY be slowing

Sources report that Apple's production of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be cut by 10% in the first quarter of 2017. Let me be up front about this report right away - we're working with parts production numbers, which could indicate several things.

Behold: This North Korean tablet is the worst tablet of all time

Let me introduce you to the worst tablet ever made - a new tablet by the name of "Woolim" made for citizens of North Korea. This isn't the sort of device you'd be able to pick up at a local Electronics Department Store - nor is it available to every citizen of the country's totalitarian dictatorship. Instead, made for what would appear to be "someone with money," according to researcher Florian Grunow, suggesting that this tablet is not meant for "the normal working class."

Galaxy S8’s AI assistant update may to put Siri to shame

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is tipped to feature a voice assistant called Bixby that's so advanced, it'll work in nearly every native app. "We are developing a key major interface which will bring about a totally new paradigm; an open AI platform." said Samsung Electronics’ Vice President Rhee In-jong. "The current Galaxy smartphones need separate applications for users, for instance, to order pizza or coffee. But, the new AI platform will enable them to order (or do) things directly without going through separate applications."

Microsoft is about to fix Windows laptops’ biggest frustration

The gloves are off with future Windows notebooks, so says Microsoft and their hardware requirements for Windows 10. This month at the WinHEC event in Shenzhen, China, Microsoft said that future touchpads would need to be far more precise than previous Windows machines. Instead of touchpads that far under-perform compared to the top models, future machines will need to have Precision Touchpads right out the gate.

We can safely assume it'll be more powerful than the Galaxy S7, for example - a device that already has more power than any mobile app on the market today can make use of.
