The Samsung Galaxy Home is still relevant

Published

on

The connected speakers are on the rise, and many manufacturers want their share of the cake. This is the case, of course, for Samsung as well – even if the South Korean giant has still not marketed its Galaxy Home.

During the packed event, Samsung announced its new Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, a new S Pen and the Galaxy Book S notebook. Many people were waiting for news from the Galaxy Home connected speaker. Samsung had announced the device a year ago but it has since had delays. Recently, the South Korean giant mentioned possible commercialization around the second half of this year, maybe during this quarter. The latest news seems that the manufacturer is still working hard on this device.

The Samsung Galaxy is not dead

“We are continuing to refine and improve the Galaxy Home before launch, and we look forward to sharing the details with Galaxy fans very soon,” said a spokesman at Engadget. The launch date and the price of the device are still a real mystery but at least we know that it is still relevant. Let’s just hope that this Galaxy Home does not have the same fate as the Apple AirPower.

The South Korean giant is working on fine-tuning everything, including Bixby

When Engadget tested the smart speaker at CES last January, it became clear that Samsung needed to work on the Galaxy Home again, and on Bixby, before it could be marketed. It is always interesting to look at how long a company takes to refine a product. Samsung will wait before marketing, but the more they wait, the more the brand will give ground to already well-established giants such as Amazon, Google, and Apple.

New keyboards on the next MacBook

Published

on

The very problematic Papillon keyboards have apparently been a bad enough experience for Apple to decide to switch to a new mechanism.

For several years now, Apple has had problems with its keyboards called “butterfly” which have a proprietary mechanism. The Cupertino company, however, seems ready to move on.

Finally a panacea?

Inaugurated during the marketing of the 12-inch MacBook in 2015, the keyboard “butterfly” is causing malfunctions. These include a character appearing twice on the screen after a single press and a phenomenon blocking the key in the aluminum body of the computer. The second version of the keyboard appeared in 2016 on the MacBook Pro, but did not correct its mechanical errors. Apple has tried again, in 2018, to review the keyboard, without more success.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that these problematic keyboards will disappear this year in favor of new ones. Apple would retain the backlight enjoyed by users, but is working on a longer activation point – the keyboards “butterfly” being too short and often not appreciated by users. The analyst believes that Apple may have resorted to a fiberglass structure to bring more strength.

According to Kuo, the MacBooks would be the first to enjoy it, and the MacBook Pro would benefit from them from 2020. Still, according to the analyst, Apple could change manufacturers and opt for Sunrex rather than Wistron, which currently produces the Papillon keyboards for the firm.

Amazon Music is growing faster than Spotify

Published

on

Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music are three big names in the music streaming market. While Spotify ranks first, it turns out that Amazon Music is growing faster.

For the moment, Spotify is the leader in the music streaming market. Apple is catching up fast. The latest news is that the Apple brand platform had 60 million subscribers. However, it seems that a third guy could invite himself to the party: Amazon Music is showing rather insolent growth.

Amazon Music is growing faster than Spotify

Amazon Music reported growth of about 70% in 2018 and today accounts for about 32 million subscribers. While these figures are still far from those of Apple and Spotify, if this growth can be maintained, the giant e-commerce American should be back rather quickly. Spotify, on the other hand, is growing more slowly, “only” 25% a year.

Will Amazon Music manage to worry about Spotify and Apple Music?

Amazon Music is rather late in this market: the service was launched in 2016. In the same way as Apple Music, Amazon has the advantage of being able to count all its Echo customers for which Amazon Music has been optimized. It also seems that Amazon’s music streaming service is particularly attractive to the elderly. The over 55s account for 14% against only 5% at Spotify.

According to Amazon Music director Steve Boom: “We are not necessarily fighting for the same customers as others. In order for the industry to reach its full potential, it is impossible to be confined to the 15 to 22 age group.” According to rumors, Amazon would plan to launch a high-fidelity option for Amazon Music and the giant would work on a new generation of Echo devices offering better audio quality.
