Samsung embraces Google with first-ever Galaxy Chromebook

A new Galaxy!

Samsung has a new Galaxy and it’s now what you usually expect. Instead of a phone, we’re being introduced to a 2-in-1 — the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook.

The company believes this is a modern solution to modern challenges in mobile computing. It combines the best of Samsung’s Galaxy tech such as an AMOLED display and built-in-pen support, with the simple and fast Chrome OS.

Show it off

Eye-catching isn’t something you say often about laptops or 2-in-1s but the Fiesta Red variant definitely wants to be noticed. It’s only 9.9mm thick but is made from durable aluminum so you don’t have to worry about it suffering from too much wear and tear.

If you prefer a color that isn’t screaming too much, there’s the quieter Mercury Gray.

Regardless of what color you choose, your eyes are going to be glued on the device’s AMOLED display — a first on any Chromebook. That same display offers 4K UHD resolution with only 3.9mm of bezel. So thin, they’re barely there.

Later in 2020, a variant with HDR4001 will come along. This promises high-contrast graphics along with Ambient EQ capabilities. A combination that will bring you a view that’s vivid but easy on the eyes.

Get things done

Powering the device is the latest 10th Gen Intel CoreTM i5 processor along with Intel Wi-Fi 6. It’s got you covered in terms of speed and performance but there’s more.

The built-in pen lets you write, draw, and navigate Galaxy Chromebook quickly and efficiently. Google Assistant is also readily available whenever you need it.

Ports-wise you get two USB-Cs, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a UFS/MicroSD combo slot. RAM can go up as high as 16GB while storage is up to 1TB SSD.

You, of course, get the best of Chrome OS. This means instant access to your Google Drive files synced across all your Android devices. There’s also Click-to-Call and Messaging apps along with other Samsung smartphone features that you can access directly on your laptop.

Pricing and availability

The Galaxy Chromebook will be available in Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray in the first quarter of 2020, starting at US$ 999.99.

Sex tech is for everyone, not just for men

CES 2020 encourages sex positivity

Published

on

Startup Lora DiCarlo graced the headlines last year for having its award revoked by the committee behind the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The startup believes it was unjust and fought for its right to be part of the annual show.

This year, Lora DiCarlo is the talk of the town once again, not because of an issue, but for being in the spotlight of CES 2020. Lora DiCarlo paved the way for sex tech to be out in the open, particularly companies with devices geared for women’s sex, health, and wellness.

Sex tech isn’t new, but sex being taboo in this modern yet surprisingly conservative society took the spotlight away from their devices. In case you’re wondering, sex technology mostly ventures on innovations to enhance our sexuality and sexual experience.

Breaking barriers

In 2017, men enjoyed VR porn as if it was that revolutionary, while sex toys and vibrators that offer solutions to enhance our experiences and relationships aren’t getting the splash they deserve. Thankfully, CES 2020 is taking a step forward in ending sexism and encourage sex-positivity. After all, sex is part of human nature.

Ever since Lora Haddock DiCarlo — the founder of Lora DiCarlo — fought for their right to be at CES, I was astounded and followed her journey. I’m all ears for women speaking up, especially with the goal of making a change in our society.

Lora DiCarlo’s Osé won an innovative award and was later revoked by CES. Eventually, Lora DiCarlo got the award reinstated while fighting for sex tech to be recognized in a separate category.

Now that DiCarlo and her company sparked a controversy, sex tech are now in the spotlight of the annual show held at Las Vegas. DiCarlo didn’t expect herself to be at the forefront of change, but it elevated her profile and grew her business.

Pleasure is at the forefront

At CES 2020, Lora DiCarlo showcased their first device once again — the Osé — is a personal massager which produces blended orgasm by mimicking movements of a human partner. It’s that revolutionary, hence, gaining an innovation award. I mean, just imagine a device pleasuring you the way a human partner does — It’s astonishing!

Lora DiCarlo’s Baci

Additionally, Lora DiCarlo unveiled two more devices: Baci and Onda. Baci is a micro-robotic device which stimulates the feel and motion of human lips and tongue, while Onda mimics the motion of human fingers. Even though it’s meant for women, I can’t wait to actually try one!

More sex technology to solve our needs

DiCarlo’s fight enabled other companies and devices to get noticed and join the spotlight. Satisfyer showed-off Satisyfer Connect, an app that can be used remotely with a long-distance partner. Lioness delivered its second-generation vibrator tracking data to improve orgasms.

Furthermore, Womanizer exhibited their products and Pleasure Air Technology — a combination of suction and pressure waves — which brings a mindblowing, orgasmic experience. While all of these talk about pleasure, Morari introduced a “band-aid” that withholds pleasure, solving the premature ejaculation issue prevalent with men.

2020 might just be the beginning, but CES showcasing sex technology is a huge step forward in encouraging a sex-positive society. If you’re still iffy about this technology, remember that you’re not the target audience and that you were born because your parents had sex.
