Visitor, will the next big thing be a Hoverboard?


Dear Visitor,

Welcome to our November 2015 Newsletter.

Dell Chromebook 13

Chromebooks have been on the market now for a long time.  When most of us think of a Chromebook, we think of a budget laptop that compromises either graphics or speed to give the brand a competitive price.  Dell’s Chromebook 13 is changing that industry standard though.  Their newly announced Chromebook has a price of $429 and with this price Dell provides you with a quality made Chromebook.  The Dell has a sleek attractive design and is portable with a twelve hour battery life, which means no problem working on the go without an outlet nearby.  When comparing Chromebooks, Dell’s Chromebook 13 is a great value for a quality product, other similar Chromebooks like the Pixel cost around $1000.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow

The new Android version is out and if you compare the aesthetics to its predecessor you may not be able to tell a huge difference.  This is because Google’s focus was not on the aesthetic design this time, but was set on making the OS run smoother and drain less battery.

The new OS features an addition called “Now on Tap.”  This is similar to the previous versions “permissions” but it does a better job showing the user what their apps are trying to access and do.  This version of the OS is also more customizable than the previous featuring the “System UI” tuner, which allows you to customize your android the way you want. 

Overall the Android 6.0 Marshmallow is a move in the right direction from 5.0, Google wanted to achieve a smoother OS and did just that.

Kangaroo Portable

The Kangaroo is a phone sized Windows 10 desktop PC.  The concept is similar to the PC-on-a-stick, but comes with less of the limits.  The Kangaroo is shaped more like a phone rather than a stick and solves one of the biggest problems these micro PCs have: ports.  It comes with two USB ports and one HDMI.   The larger design also make the Kangaroo more powerful than most of its competitors. 

The self-powered system comes with an Atom x5 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.  This makes it comparable to an entry level laptop or a mid-level Chromebook. 

The Kangaroo is ideal for the user that needs portable computing with displays available when needed.

Xiaomi 'Hoverboard'

Xiaomi, a Chinese smartphone company is making waves in the field of movement.  Through their investment into Ninebot, a scooter-maker company (recently acquired Segway), Xaiomi is releasing its self-balancing scooter.  Named the “hoverboard” the company is providing a hands free way to glide through malls and across the pavement.  The remarkable thing about this product is its price.

The “hoverboard” is being sold for just $316.  The board has also been designed to communicate with an app that will give you user feedback about the scooter.  At $316 it is much cheaper than a Segway.
