Apple TV-4G_Remote-PRINT

If you’ve ever used a smart TV or a set-top box chances are you’re not quite happy with the way text entry goes. It can be a pain in the sitter to input text on most of these devices and often they leave you wishing for voice dictation. The new Apple TV didn’t have this feature when it first came out last year, making text input just as painful, but Apple is finally making things right.

galaxy-s7-edge-front-live-image

There’s a lot of excitement these days about the new handsets that some of the biggest companies on the planet are going to unveil next month. Both Samsung and LG are going to show off their new flagships on February 21st. Just yesterday what appeared to be the first live image of the Galaxy S7 leaked online and now we’ve what appears to be the first live photo of the Galaxy S7 Edge.

It’s easy to distinguish between this device and the Galaxy S7, it has a dual-edge curved display much like the Galaxy S6 Edge, however, the display is a bit bigger than its predecessor as per rumors. It certainly seems so in this photo.

We can also see that an AnTuTu benchmark test has been run on this particular handset and it scored an impressive 134704, it should be noted that this score is a bit higher than the one we’ve already seen for the Galaxy S7 about a week ago.

Other than that, it doesn’t look like Samsung has made any radical design changes to this year’s flagship smartphone. For the most part it does look like its predecessor, simply put, it looks good.

Obviously, it can’t be said for sure if this is the real deal of just some prototype Samsung tested at some stage of the production process. We’ll find out for sure come February 21st when the real Galaxy S7 Edge is formally unveiled.

The feature might not mean much to people who just have one account but if you’re in the social media business and handle Instagram for your clients, or if you have a small business and would like to easily access its Instagram account, then account switching is definitely going to make your life a lot easier. Instagram has finally rolled out this feature to both iOS and Android.

whitehouse

Most people aren’t happy with the Wi-Fi in their home.

You’d think that the White House will be exempt from this problem, because it’s the White House after all, but you’d better think again.
