Samsung Bixby smart speaker in pipeline to rival Apple HomePod

Samsung's Bixby smart assistant may only just be arriving on the Galaxy S8, but the company is already looking at alternative ways to package it - and take on Apple and Google in the process.

A bigger Galaxy Note 8 may answer power-users’ big complaint

What with 4K video recording, increasingly high-quality photos, and games that are becoming huger as they get more console-like, word today that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will bump up its storage options is welcome.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 FE rebirth is imminent

All eyes may be on the upcoming launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but the phone maker's ill-fated Note 7 will beat it to shelves as it gets a post-recall rebirth.

A Tesla streaming music rival to Spotify makes perfect sense

The next Tesla perk could well be the automaker's own streaming music service, with industry insiders claiming a rival to Spotify and Apple Music is being explored.

Following the aborted Note 7, the glowing reviews and then unexpected battery-related recalls of which proved to be one of the more impressive trajectories in gadget releases of recent years, the new Note 8 has plenty to prove.
