Once installed, this material allows writing that'll stay in-place for an indefinite amount of time - and can be removed with a single tap of a button.

Samsung Chromebook Plus LTE released: Worth it?

The Samsung Chromebook Plus LTE for 2018 was put on sale today - so let's take a look at what's new. This isn't an all-new device - it's more of a refresh with a bump.

New Apple Pencil 2018 charges wirelessly, has laser engraving

New Apple Pencil 2018 charges wirelessly, has laser engraving

The new Apple Pencil does away with the Lightning charging oddity of its first iteration, choosing instead a wireless charging solution. This new Apple Pencil has one flat side so it can securely attach to the side of the new iPad Pro, which also has a flat side (four flat sides, actually). There, a wireless charging panel under the side of the iPad Pro allows the Apple Pencil to charge.

Huawei MediaPad M5 lite brings a stylus to mid-range

Apple's Pencil-enabled 2018 iPad will hopefully start a new trend in tablets. Samsung, ironically, seems to have gone the other way and forgotten to give its newest Galaxy Tab A slates an S Pen. If you are searching for an affordable Android slate with that exact feature, you might want to look at Huawei for salvation. That's because its new MediaPad M5 Lite might exactly be what you need.

Paper app makers FiftyThree now belongs to WeTransfer

Years before Apple came out with the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil, very few companies dared to oppose what the late Steve Jobs said about styluses, that nobody would want them. In 2012, a startup named FiftyThree launched not only an award-winning Paper sketchbook app exclusively for the iPad then nascent but also a popular Pencil stylus. Now six years later, the company is no more, having been acquired by someone you least expected: cloud-based file transfer company WeTransfer.

Galaxy S and Galaxy Note merger makes perfect sense

Galaxy S and Galaxy Note merger makes perfect sense

With the upcoming launch of the Galaxy Note 9 and news of the Galaxy S9’s lackluster sales numbers, it’s not entirely surprising to hear murmurs of Samsung axing one or the other product lines. Of course, that still depends on how well or how badly the Galaxy Note 9 performs in comparison. It might, however, be more beneficial to simply merge its two flagship phones completely, whatever name it comes up with. That might even mean axing the non-Plus model as well.

Galaxy Note 9 S Pen features found in Galaxy Tab S4 firmware

Galaxy Note 9 S Pen features found in Galaxy Tab S4 firmware

Yes, that title sounds equal parts confusing and equal parts ironic. Features for an unreleased smartphone found in software for an unreleased tablet. And yet that is the wonderful discovery that was unearthed from the firmware of the Galaxy Tab S4, which may launch after the Galaxy Note 9 at least. And although the pieces of new information don’t drastically change anything we have heard so far, it at least gives us a better picture of what this new Bluetooth-enabled S Pen will be able to do.

Galaxy Note 9 colors leaked, Bluetooth S Pen confirmed

Galaxy Note 9 colors leaked, Bluetooth S Pen confirmed

It seems that the Galaxy Note 9 turned from boring Galaxy Note 8+1 into an overnight sensation thanks to rumors about its S Pen and, more recently, its larger than usual (for Samsung) battery. And, indeed, the S Pen keeps on giving. New details, that is. Thanks to the stylus, we might now know what colors the Galaxy Note 9 will come in and, thanks to the FCC, we now also know that the stylus will indeed have Bluetooth functionality.

The Galaxy Note S Pen has plateaued and that’s perfect

The Galaxy Note S Pen has plateaued and that’s perfect

At first, the Galaxy Note 9 sounded like it was going to be yet another unexciting 2018 flagship like the Galaxy S9 earlier this year. Then came the rumors of a new S Pen feature that did stir up interest in next month’s phablet. It is definitely quite an improvement, considering there hasn’t been any significant change in the S Pen for years (the spring-loaded ejector doesn’t count). Suffice it to say, the S Pen may have reached its peak maturity, which makes it the perfect time to transform it into a more refined and more serious tool.

Galaxy Note 9 S Pen: 4 new features Samsung could add

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 needs to distinguish itself from the rest of the smartphone world, and it seems a new and boosted S Pen is how it will do that. Set to be unveiled in early August, the new Note 9 isn't expected to stray too far from other Android flagships - including, indeed, Samsung's own Galaxy S9+ - across much of its spec sheet. Its pop-out stylus, though, could make all the difference.
