Now now, can we not upset them, they get a bit delicate when defending the thousand pound emoji machine.

Re: CES Las Vegas 2018

Not sure the reporter of that article is an Apple fan either (after reading this comment)..

"With Apple hiding itself away in Cupertino, CES is Samsung's big opportunity to steal the smartphone limelight for a change".

So not to worry. Tinfoil hats not required...joy

Re: CES Las Vegas 2018

@Glory1 I was actually looking at the S8 the other day. Getting the itch for a new phone! Do you have the Plus or regular 8? 

 

@viridis OK so we're not quite there yet. I would imagine 8K in the home is a while off considering 4K's not main stream yet.

Re: CES Las Vegas 2018

Well actually there's more options in the home for 8k than in cinemas, mostly gaming monitors and displays with pro-sumer grade cameras hitting 6k now.

Re: CES Las Vegas 2018

I have the S8 plus @Martin-O2 as I wanted the larger screen. I stream a lot on my mobile so the bigger the screen the better. Also viewing my games on the bigger screen (in full screen) is way better as well. But that's just me. I think whether you choose the standard or the plus, the S8 is a great phone. But I have to admit that if my old Note 4 hadn't been so knackered, and I could have hung on a few months longer, I would have gone for the Note 8.

@viridis We just have to wait for the content creators to catch up then! 

 

@Glory1 Nice I was leaning towards the Plus for the bigger screen. I think I'll get another few months out of my S6 but I knackered the battery by using the wrong charger so it drains super quick which can get annoying.

Re: CES Las Vegas 2018

If you want a bigger screen then the Note 8 would be even better than the S8+?

@gmarkj I haven't had a proper good at the Note 8 yet! I'm definitely a Galaxy S fanboy but could be swayed by the Note 8!

Re: CES Las Vegas 2018

I wish I was there, but it is so far, so expensive and I'd be surprised if I saw more than a tenth of what was on show.  Maybe one day, but without SWMBO who would utterly hate it.

 

I was astounded when I looked at the web site to find an enormous list of new launches, mostly not covered in the tech press. https://www.ces.tech/Media/New-Product-Launches

 

I'm in the market for a new laptop, and fancied a 2-in-1 but they are so small and underpowered.  Imagine my delight to read these:

 

grin Dell announces new XPS 15 2-in-1, the most powerful and smallest of its kind, boasts serious horsepower with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processor with Radeon™ RX Vega M graphics . Also covered here.

 

grin  HP’s updated Spectre x360 15 is one of the first laptops to get Intel’s new AMD-powered chips.  Also covere here.

 

smile  Not quite big enough perhaps is the 14 inch Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (2018).

 

dog Who wouldn't want an Aibo, Sony's dog re-worked and re-released.  Unfortunately, it sells for 198,000 yen, or about $1,800, along with a subscription that costs 2,980 yen ($27) a month subscription or 90,000 yen ($800) for three years.

 

robot Segway’s Loomo bot has a straightforward value proposition: you ride it like a hoverboard to the store, and then you hop off, load it up with cargo, and have it follow you home.

 

flash  One I really like the idea of is Powerspot, an emitter that allows you to use electronics nearby while getting your power wirelessly.  No more wires and plugs, no more finding the sweet spot on that powermat/Qi charging pad.

BTW, great news that Powermat has joined the Qi consortium, so before long there will only be one wireless charging at very short range technologies.

 

remote  Razer may have solved the "turn your phone into a laptop" problem. This is Project Linda.

 

I guess from that you could say that yes, I am following CES!  Bouncy
