Samsung Bixby smart speaker launching in August. will be cheaper than Google Home

Samsung expected to release a premium Bixby-powered smart speaker alongside the Galaxy Note 9.
The Wall Street Journal says the speaker will be bowl-shaped with legs on the bottom and lights on top (hope those lights are shaped like eyes for the proper Batteries Not Included experience). It will also apparently have a sound shifting feature that will be able to play audio in the direction of the person talking to it. It might work something like the S-Ray concept Samsung demoed at CES earlier this year; see the trailer for the tech below.The speaker will presumably use the upcoming Bixby version 2.0. The new version of Samsung’s AI assistant has long been rumored to feature on the Galaxy Note 9, so it would make a lot of sense that the speaker would also come with the latest version (if they launch simultaneously).
While previous rumors suggested Samsung would release different versions of its smart speaker at different prices, this wasn’t mentioned by The Wall Street Journal in the latest report. However, considering both Google and Amazon have released cheaper versions of their respective smart speakers, it wouldn’t be surprising if Samsung eventually does the same.

If the $300 price-tag is correct, the speaker would be competing with —although slightly cheaper than — high-end devices such as the Apple HomePod ($349.99) and Google Home Max ($399). As well as a more attractive price, Samsung could give its speaker an edge by integrating its wealth of existing products.

If your hair identifies you with any group, subculture, area, ideology or thought, then it’s mistaken for gambling. The thought is to be presentable, and hopefully barely engaging. The average gambler is superstitious, and ultimately not very sensible.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Bing Apps for Windows 8 get major updates

Late least year, Microsoft rolled out a half dozen Bing Apps for Windows 8 users, each one focused on a specific category, such as travel and sports. The apps were designed to offer “immersive vertical experiences,” and now, about six months later, a big line of updates for them is being pushed out. Users can grab the updates now by heading into the Windows Store and selecting the updates notification.
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d
