Samsung previews new 55″ Series 8 LED TV

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: October 15, 2009

A new 55" Samsung Series 8 LED TV is coming out and they'll still be as thin as 1.2 inches. We've had the Series 7 before and this new one adds new features that could well replace a separate media player. Well, that's if you consider the fact that you can now hook up an external HDD via USB to the LED TV and play movies from there or use the internal storage that's been bumped up to 2GB. Despite Samsung's claim that their LED TVs are internet-ready, I still think it's a little crippled. There's ethernet connection and WiFi…

Web hack can factory reset Samsung phones

Relevance: 94%      Posted on: September 26, 2012

If you're using a Samsung smartphone with TouchWiz including the Galaxy S2 and some Galaxy S3 models, be aware that there's a web hack that can trigger a factory reset on your beloved smartphone. The web hack is actually a malicious code that is hiding inside a web page and gets triggered when visited using the stock browser (except Google Chrome) of a TouchWiz-based phone. The malicious code then spawns the dialer and enters a bad USSD code with the sole purpose of nuking your device back to its factory default. To give you a refresher on USSD codes, one…

Samsung launches 15-inch Series 9 ultrabook

Relevance: 91%      Posted on: June 19, 2012

Last night, Samsung Philippines launched their 2nd-generation ultrabooks with the latest Intel Ivy Bridge processors. They also showcased a 15-inch Series 9 ultrabook and a 13-inch super-affordable Series 5 ultrabook (under Php30k). Incidentally, we've actually seen these ultrabooks a couple of weeks ago in the floors of the Computex. The 15-inch Series 9 ultrabook packs an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. The 15-inch display only has a resolution of 1600x900 pixels though. It's got a matte finish, aluminum body that's only 14.9mm thin and weighs just 1.65kg (3.63lbs). Not bad for…

55″ Samsung B8000 Series 8 LED TV

Relevance: 90%      Posted on: December 6, 2009

Samsung Philippines previewed their newest 55-inch LED TV last October, the inch-thick Samsung B8000 Series 8. They sent me one to test out for a week and I'm curious how that internet connectivity feature works. I've tried and review the Series 7 LED TV here before and the 40-incher was great. This Series 8 I am using right now is 55" and way bigger (it dwarfs my 42" and 32" LCD TV at home). (Shown beside the Samsung B8000 is a 42" LCD TV.) Asrock's local distributor sent me an HTPC last week and I have yet to unbox it.…

Samsung Series 7 laptop goes slim and sexy

Relevance: 89%      Posted on: August 31, 2011

If you didn't like the construction of the Samsung Series 9 laptop, I'm sure you'll probably drool over the recently announced Samsung Series 7, with its sleek aluminum body. Price starts at $999 (probably be Php49,999 when it hits the Philippines), the Series 7 laptop comes with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. That chrome finish on the lid and brushed-metal finish on the palm rests, all made with aluminum, gives the Series 7 laptop a really cool and sexy look. Too bad they are only available in 14-inch and 15.6-inch form factor (which is a bit too big…

Samsung 9 Series Notebook is Super Thin!

Relevance: 88%      Posted on: January 8, 2011

Weighing in at 2.89lbs, the Samsung 9 Series barely bested the Macbook Air 13.3 at 2.9lbs. And the specs are pretty impressive too. Local reps of Samsung have actually told us about this upcoming unit back in December, claiming it will be thinner the the Mac Air so I'm not that very surprised to see this announcement. Samsung 9 Series 13.3" display at 1366×768 Intel Core i5 Processor 2537M @ 1.40 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.3 GHz) Intel HD GT2 Integrated Graphics 4GB DDR3 RAM 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD) Windows 7 Home Premium/Professional (64 bit) WiFi 802.11b/g/n WiMax…

Samsung Series 9 comes in 11.6″ too!

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: March 27, 2011

When Samsung launched their ultra-thin Series 9 laptop in the Philippines last week, they only showed the regular 13.3" variant. I thought it's such a waste they didn't include a 11.6" variant that would go head-to-head with the 11-inch Macbook Air. Turns out they did a 11-incher too (as reported here) with better specs than the Mac Air equivalent. The specs is similar to the 13.3" Series 9, though with lower SSD capacity: Samsung 9 Series 11.6 11.6″ display at 1366×768 Intel Core i5 Processor 2537M @ 1.40 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.3 GHz) Intel HD GT2 Integrated Graphics…

Samsung to Issue a Patch for SwiftKey Hack

Relevance: 85%      Posted on: June 18, 2015

In the wake of the controversy revolving around the vulnerability of the pre-installed SwiftKey keyboard app on some Samsung smartphones, the South Korean company has issued a statement to Android Central about their plans of rolling out a patch to mitigate the risks of the said keyboard exploit we reported yesterday. According to a mobile security company, NowSecure, hackers can take advantage of the vulnerability of the SwiftKey on some Samsung smartphones to snoop in on user’s voice calls and SMS, inbound and outbound. The security firm has added that the exploit can potentially allow hackers to install malware without…

Computex: Samsung Series 5 Ultra Convertible

Relevance: 85%      Posted on: June 6, 2012

Samsung new entry into the ultrabook category is the Series 5 Ultra Convertible -- a superthin notebook with touchscreen panel and lid that flips back up to 360 degrees. This isn't the first of ultrabooks that can make a 360-backflip since we've already seen this in the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga back in January during CES 2012. I'm not quite sure what the complete specs of this convertible ultrabook but I reckon it will be similar to the configuration of the original Samsung Series 5 ultrabook that was released in the Philippines a couple of months ago. Samsung points out 5…
