Alors que la première itération du Gear VR est d’ores et déjà sur le marché, il pourrait y avoir une nouvelle version dans un proche avenir.Le Gear VR existe depuis plus longtemps que vous le pensez peut-être, en raison des éditions de développement en cours de production bien avant le lancement officiel du produit aux consommateurs, à la fin de l’année dernière. Mais alors, est-ce vraiment le Gear VR 2 ?

    Bien que le Gear VR 2 puisse ne pas être disponible avant quelques mois, nous pouvons voir une version améliorée de l’actuelle Gear VR dans un proche avenir, prête à être utilisée avec un smartphone Samsung. Selon une fiche produit enregistrée sur le site d’import-export indien Zauba, un Gear VR ayant le numéro de modèle SM-R323 a été expédié de Corée du Sud pour des tests.À titre d’information, l’actuel casque Gear VR est connu sous le numéro de modèle SM-R322, et les éditions précédentes (développeur et innovateur) étaient respectivement connues comme SM-R320 et SM-R321. Tout changement dans le numéro de modèle suggère de nouvelles fonctionnalités et de design, mais pour le moment nous ne savons rien sur les secrets que détient le SM-R323. Cependant, nous pouvons spéculer sur au moins un.

    Samsung a conçu le Gear VR pour qu’il fonctionne avec plusieurs de ses smartphones haut de gamme, et qui se connecte à l’aide d’un connecteur micro USB. Mais, comment faire si le Galaxy Note 7 utilise un port USB Type-C ? Cela pourrait finir par être la différence entre l’actuel Gear VR et le SM-R323, afin de s’assurer que Samsung puisse encore proposer son casque de réalité virtuelle avec sa future phablette. La firme sud-coréenne a même été jusqu’à fournir gratuitement un Gear VR à toutes les personnes qui ont précommandé le Galaxy S7 et le S7 edge, et pourrait faire de même avec son futur flagship.Si les rumeurs sont exactes, le Galaxy Note 7 devrait être annoncé au début du mois d’août, au moment où la nouvelle itération du Gear VR pourrait faire son apparition. Rien n’est officiel pour le moment, mais je vous tiendrais informé.Le successeur du populaire Mi Note de Xiaomi, le Mi Note 2, est prévu d’être libéré un peu plus tard dans l’année. Malheureusement, les spécifications et les images concernant l’appareil ne se sont pas révélées dans de multiples spéculations et rumeurs.

    Mais durant le weekend passé, GizChina a publié des informations sur le dispositif. Celles-ci suggèrent que le Xiaomi Mi Note 2 pourrait être intéressant. Attendu cet été, le futur flagship de la société mettra en exergue trois variantes : une version standard avec un écran d’une résolution 1080p, soit 1 920 x 1 080 pixels, et une version haut de gamme avec un écran incurvé 2 K. Ce dernier arriverait dans des options de stockage de 64 ou 128 Go.Les modèles haut de gamme disposeront d’un écran incurvé de 5,7 pouces, et une double caméra à l’arrière de 12 mégapixels chacune. La version la plus abordable aura 4 Go de mémoire vive (RAM), et une caméra de 16 mégapixels à l’arrière — ce qui ne signifie pas de double caméra, mais une résolution plus élevée.Pour résumer, on aurait donc un modèle avec 4 Go de RAM et 32 Go de stockage interne, ainsi qu’un écran 1080p, un autre avec 6 Go de RAM, 64 Go de stockage, un écran 2K incurvé, et enfin un modèle avec 6 Go de RAM avec 128 Go de stockage et un écran 2K incurvé.

    Le Mi Note 2 haut de gamme devrait également être doté d’une technologie Force Touch », que l’on devrait également retrouver dans le futur smartphone Nexus de Google, ainsi que la technologie 3D Touch, qui est apparue avec l’iPhone 6 et l’iPhone 6S Plus. Pour ceux qui ignorent à quoi sert la technologie, sachez que Force Touch permet aux utilisateurs d’interagir d’une autre façon avec les applications, comme prévisualiser un site ou un mail en appuyant plus fortement sur l’écran. Cela signifie que vous ne devez pas complètement ouvrir une application pour obtenir certaines informations assez rapidement.En ce qui concerne les similitudes entre les appareils, ils devraient tous disposer du processeur Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 ou 821, d’un capteur d’empreintes digitales à ultrasons sous l’écran, une puce NFC, et une batterie d’une capacité de 4 000 mAh compatible avec la technologie de recharge rapide Quick Charge 3.0.Bien sûr, la tarification va varier. Le Mi Note 2 le moins cher devrait coûter 2 499 Yuan (337 euros) pour 4 Go, et 2 999 Yuan (405 euros) pour 6 Go de RAM et 64 Go. Enfin, la version du Mi Note 2 avec 6 Go de RAM et 128 Go de stockage coûtera 3499 Yuan (472 euros).

    Le premier smartphone Android de BlackBerry n’est peut-être pas un best-seller, mais les dirigeants de la firme ont suggéré que le Priv est juste le premier de plusieurs smartphones sous Android que l’entreprise va lancer.Maintenant, VentureBeat rapporte qu’il pourrait y avoir au moins trois smartphones BlackBerry sous Android prévus cette année. Mais, un seul aura la caractéristique qui rend le Priv si spécial : un clavier physique.La publication provenant de VentureBeat a été relayée par Evan Blass, également connu comme @evleaks sur Twitter. Ce dernier est plutôt populaire du côté des rumeurs et spéculations, et sa source serait une personne informée sur les plans de l’entreprise ». Évidemment, et comme pour chaque rumeur, il est nécessaire de prendre celle-ci avec des pincettes.Pour l’instant, voici ce que Blass a à dire sur les trois smartphones. Il convient de noter que ceux-ci sont connus par des noms de code, Neon », Argon » et Mercury », et auront probablement des noms différents à leurs sorties respectives.

    Le premier, connu sous le nom de code Neon », a un écran de 5,2 pouces d’une résolution full HD, soit 1 920 x 1 080 pixels, d’un processeur Snapdragon 617 de Qualcomm, de 3 Go de mémoire vive (RAM), de 16 Go de stockage interne, et d’une batterie de 2 610 mAh, compatible avec la recharge rapide Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0. À l’arrière, on retrouverait une caméra de 13 mégapixels, et en façade on aurait un capteur de 8 mégapixels. Le châssis serait en aluminium et en plastique souple, et arriverait entre juillet ou août de cette année.Le Argon » aurait un écran de 5,5 pouces avec une résolution de 2 560 x 1 440 pixels, un processeur Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 4 Go de RAM, 32 Go de stockage interne, une batterie d’une capacité de 3 000 mAh compatible avec la technologie Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. À l’arrière, on retrouverait une caméra de 2 mégapixels, et en façade on aurait une caméra de 8 mégapixels. Sous la tranche inférieure, un connecteur USB Type-C serait incrusté. Le smartphone disposerait d’un capteur d’empreintes digitales, et arriverait en octobre.

    For now, the MacBook Air will remain the best laptop you can buy, just as the old plastic MacBook was when the Air originally launched in 2008. The new MacBook is a glimpse at the future, but you'll probably want to wait until the rest of the world catches up.Chromebooks are the fastest growing segment of the laptop world, and it’s easy to see why: They work, and they’re cheap. They make for great secondary or travel notebooks, and the best of them — like the 1080p display-packing Toshiba Chromebook 2 — can even work as a primary machine if you use them right. The problem with them, as always, is that they run Chrome OS. Google’s worked hard to add a bunch of offline features to its platform’s largely web-dependent services, but at its core, the OS is still, mostly, a browser stretched to scale. For many, only Windows or Mac OS, with their full desktop applications, will do.

    Apple isn’t in the business of selling things for cheap, but to answer that call, various Windows manufacturers are pumping out notebooks that are priced like Chromebooks, yet run full Windows 10. We’ve previously recommended things like the Asus Eeebook X205TA, and HP’s Stream notebooks have proven popular in the past, but now Acer is jumping into the fray with the Aspire One Cloudbook. It starts at just $170 for an 11.6-inch model, with a 14-inch option available for $250. Whichever one you choose comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed. After testing a $190 configuration – which uses a faster 64-bit architecture instead of the $170 model’s 32-bit one – for the past few weeks, we feel comfortable recommending it for people who’d like the easiness of a Chromebook, but with Windows’ various perks. Again, it won’t replace that new MacBook you’ve been craving, but it’s plenty suitable for something to throw in a bag or peruse around the house.

    Still, this is a sub-$200 laptop, and it has the specs to match. It runs on a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Celeron processor, alongside 2GB of RAM and just 32GB of flash storage. (The 14-inch version has 64GB, but you get 1TB of OneDrive storage for a year either way.) All of that is fairly modest, and it means that you can’t fire up too many applications or browser tabs at once. As its name implies, you’re usually better off using the Cloudbook in the cloud – much like how you’d use a Chromebook. Windows isn’t as fast as Chrome OS in that regard, but if you treat this like the cheap beater laptop it is, it’ll be fine. You definitely can use desktop applications here, however. The Cloudbook comes with a free year of Office 365, for instance, and legacy programs like Word run exceptionally smoothly. It’s totally possible to get quick bits of work done with this, and the device’s superb, clicky, and well-spaced keyboard only helps that. We used it to type this review, in fact.The rest of the Cloudbook is about what you'd expect from a solid budget laptop. Relatively speaking, the whole thing is built well, with a flexible hinge and no sense of creakiness outside of a little loose bit in front of the trackpad. Its all-gray body isn't what we’d call attractive, but it's thin and light, and its soft brand of plastic feels nice to the touch. The trackpad itself is spacious and responsive for an 11-inch machine, though it can feel mushy when clicking down.

    The 1366x768 TN display isn’t sharp or particularly colorful, but its matte finish at least holds off glare. The cheap speakers and webcam are what they are. Its battery lasts a solid 8 hours or so per charge, however, and the 14-inch model can get an exceptional 12-14 hours. There isn’t much software bloat, either. As we’ve said before, buying a budget laptop is about accepting compromises, but the Cloudbook generally makes its sacrifices in the right places. If you want the utility (and price) of a Chromebook but prefer Microsoft’s flavor of software, the Cloudbook is a worthwhile buy. You’ll get a great keyboard, travel-friendly design, and better offline support (Office and Cortana included) for your troubles. Don’t expect the world, but you could do much worse for less than $200.If the netbook ever truly died, it sure didn’t take long for PC makers to resurrect it. Microsoft watched as Apple’s iPads and Google’s Chromebooks ate away at the low-cost computing market those Windows laptops once dominated, but now that the thirst for affordable tablets has slowed, and the capacities of cheap PC hardware have grown, manufacturers are going back to the well.

    In today’s context, though, these new machines aren’t reborn netbooks so much as they’re Microsoft’s response to Chromebooks. With their limited storage, modest internals, and dirt cheap MSRPs, they’re meant to be secondary or travel devices, things you’d give to your kid or take on the flight when you want to give your XPS 13 or MacBook Air a breather. And as with Google’s devices, their weak specs push you toward basic tasks in the cloud. You’re mostly using them to browse the web and stream a couple videos.The difference is that these things run full Windows 10, so, if you need it, you can still use traditional desktop apps like Word and Excel. Now, because Windows still has to work on devices nine times as expensive, these cheaper notebooks aren’t nearly as fast as the best Chromebooks – which are wholly Web-focused – in practice.But that’s the bet Microsoft is making: Enough people will trade some speed and, in some cases, better hardware for the flexibility and added productivity potential of a desktop OS. That nearly all of these machines come with a free year of Office 365 only solidifies the sales pitch.

    Affordable laptops like the HP Stream 11 and Asus Eeebook X205TA helped carve out this market, and we’ve previously touted the Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 11. After a little more testing, though, we’d currently recommend the Lenovo Ideapad 100s to anyone interested in this kind of device. Its 11.6-inch model currently retails for $171.75.All the conceptual ideas noted above still apply here. Nobody will call the Ideapad 100s strong – videos in Microsoft Edge (which tends to run better on Windows 10 than Chrome and such) take a moment to load, gaming is just about impossible, and trying to run more than a handful of apps simultaneously brings the whole thing to its knees. Photo editing isn’t exactly fun, either. That’s what a 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor and 2GB of RAM will do to you.Use it in moderation, though, and the Ideapad is surprisingly fluid. There’s hardly any lag once everything’s up and running; we could, say, take notes in a large Google Drive doc, browse Business Insider, and stream a 720p YouTube video all at once without much trouble. Desktop apps like Word and Evernote are perfectly agreeable, too. Again, if you need to, you can absolutely get lighter work done on this thing. The performance here is never anything more than “fine,” but it won’t make you tear your hair out. That’s a positive in this market.

    While the Ideapad feels swifter than something like the Aspire One Cloudbook, it isn't an immense difference. What sets it apart are its battery life and chassis. The former is very good: about 10-11 hours on a charge with average use. Battery life should always be a plus with such low-power chips, but Lenovo’s made good use of the Atom unit here.The Ideapad’s design is its biggest selling point. For the most part, and especially from the outside, it comes off more expensive than it is. Its colorful frame is fun and sturdy, and its smooth matte finish doesn’t get destroyed by fingerprints. It’s superbly light and compact as well.Its display neatly folds to a 180-degree angle, too, which is a clever way around the unsurprisingly poor viewing angles on its 1366x768 TN screen. If objects look washed out (and they will), just push the whole thing back. The rest of the panel, by the way, is serviceable. It’s not sharp, and its colors don’t pop, but it’s bright and accurate enough to be better than what’s on most sub-$200 Windows machines.

    There are a couple of quirks worth noting, though. In many ways, the Ideapad’s keyboard and trackpad are great. The former is fast, spacious, and comfortable, especially for an 11-inch device, but it flexes a ton. Whole chunks of the board spring up and down as you type, always reminding you that you’re using something cheap. Still, outside of that annoyance, it’s very good.The trackpad, meanwhile, is accurate, but doesn’t support multi-touch gestures. That means no pinch-to-zoom, two-fingered scrolling, or anything like that. Even for an ultra-budget machine, this is a truly strange omission.There are other ways the Ideapad feels $170: The keyboard has no backlight, both USB ports are 2.0 instead of 3.0, the speakers and webcam are rough, and only 17GB of the stated 32GB of flash storage are usable out of the box. (You can help that with a microSD card, at least.)

    For what it is, though, the Lenovo Ideapad 100s works well for casual users or frequent travelers. If you can live without Windows, we’d still recommend a Chromebook to most – the performance gains are noticeable, and Chrome can do more than you might think. If you can’t, though, this is a good value. Jawbone's newest iteration of its 'UP' activity tracker, the UP4, is now available for purchase. And, as a result, its predecessor, the UP3, is discounted 33% (most likely because it's going to be phased out of production). If your looking for a device to help you keep up on your health, and save a little money, the UP3's current price tag is appealing. If you aren't on your smartphone all day but want enough insurance to ensure you can call that late-night cab ride home, an ultra-thin battery like Peri's GoCharge does the trick. Its 3,200mAh of power is good for charging an average iPhone about 1.5 times, which makes it plenty practical for most mobile users' needs. You can also shop the pack for Android and Windows phones. And you can shop even more portable battery packs here.

    Anker's PowerPort Qi Wireless Charger is about the size of a drink coaster. To charge, you simply place your Qi-compatible phone on top and wait for the small LED lights to tell you when the battery is full. This technology isn't compatible with Apple products just yet, however, if you're an Android user who's tired of wires, it's a cool alternative worth considering. It's also just $12, which is slightly cheaper than the last time we highlighted it.The weather's steadily transitioning to fall, and soon our wardrobes will follow suit will heavier fabrics and deeper colors. Zanzara's driving shoes are a perfect complement to the dipping temperatures: Suede is a material people generally wear when it's colder outside. And, right now, the sleek-looking shoes are a cool 40% off. It's a good deal considering summer wares are currently the ones seeing heavy discounts. If messenger bags and briefcases aren't your preferred carrying style, try a backpack. Some packs look too young for men in suits to be commuting to work with, but others like NIID's slim laptop backpack are plenty professional for even the strictest of office dress codes. Its compact design won't take up too much room on crowded subway cars either.

    Then there’s the obvious power-related stuff. Regardless of what gadgets you bring on your travels, it can never hurt to have a few spare microUSB and/or Lightning cables around in case one gets misplaced along the way. Again, Anker has reliable and affordable options here with its PowerLine microUSB Cable and Lightning-to-USB Cable.Likewise, if you wind up in a hotel room that doesn’t have enough outlets to charge all your devices, a small power strip like Belkin’s SurgePlus Mini Charger can come in handy.Finding steady internet on the go (or in a spotty hotel room) is a notorious hassle, but you can bypass much of that annoyance with a mobile hotspot. If you can’t or don’t want to use your phone as such, Verizon’s Jetpack MiFi 6620L is a dependable, consistently well-reviewed option. Like most MiFi routers, it’s not cheap, but Verizon’s network has long been the fastest and most expansive in the country. If you live on the road, it could be a wise investment.Finally, your gear will be more prone to disasters when you’re outside the confines of your home. As such, it’s worth another reminder that you should really go out of your way to backup your data before heading off. If you’re working with a handful of important files in particular, bringing along a spare flash drive is a simple and space-efficient way to keep them safe.

    The differences between most USB sticks aren’t enormous, practically speaking — just make sure you buy a USB 3.0 one — but the SanDisk Extreme gets you proven fast read/write speeds and a fair amount of space at an affordable price. With a 4.6 rating after 1,800 Amazon reviews, it’s shouldn’t let you down. If the netbook ever truly died, it sure didn’t take long for PC makers to resurrect it. Microsoft watched as Apple’s iPads and Google’s Chromebooks ate away at the low-cost computing market those Windows laptops once dominated, but now that the thirst for affordable tablets has slowed, and the capacities of cheap PC hardware have grown, manufacturers are going back to the well.In today’s context, though, these new machines aren’t reborn netbooks so much as they’re Microsoft’s response to Chromebooks.

If you can live without Windows, we’d still recommend a Chromebook to most – the performance gains are noticeable, and Chrome can do more than you might think. If you can’t, though, this is a good value. During Monday's big event, the biggest glimpse at Apple's future came not from the Apple Watch but from the company's new laptop, the ultra-thin MacBook.

    It's gorgeous, and people were going bonkers over this thing, even though it will sell for a hefty $1,300 or more starting April 10.First, there's the price. You're paying a premium because Apple pulled off some engineering magic and created a beautiful computer that is not much thicker than an iPhone yet powerful enough to run a full desktop operating system. In fact, it is $300 more expensive than the cheapest MacBook Pro but has weaker specs. (The Retina MacBook Pro starts at the same price as the new MacBook). It is not the best deal on paper unless you value design and portability over everything else.Then there are the ports. Or, rather, the lack of ports. The MacBook has only one: a special USB C port that is designed for charging the computer, connecting video cables, and plugging in accessories. That means you will not be able to transfer files using a traditional USB stick, and you will have to get a special adapter for a lot of other things.macbook usb c portApple

    Finally, I'm not a fan of the fact Apple did away with the MagSafe charger in favor of USB C. If you're like me, you have a habit of tripping over your laptop's cables. Apple's MagSafe charger is a brilliant solution: It holds the charging connector firmly in the laptop but will not do any damage if you yank it out. When I was in college I did some major damage to my old PowerBook when I tripped over its charging cord. I have a feeling there will be more than a few damaged USB C chargers from new MacBook owners. USB C charging feels like a step backward.But let's rewind a bit. The new MacBook reminds me a lot of the first MacBook Air that launched in 2008. That computer was underpowered, had very little storage, and had minimal ports. It was light, thin, and beautiful, unlike any laptop anyone had seen at the time, but it was also way too expensive for what you got. As with the new MacBook, the original MacBook Air was a marvelous feat of engineering that most people probably didn't need to buy.

    Two and a half years later, the MacBook Air was the best laptop in the world. Apple improved everything from the processing power to design to battery life. Today's MacBook Air is even better.I bet we'll be having a similar discussion about the new MacBook in two or three years. It's ahead of its time now, but eliminating ports and going fully wireless in favor of an ultra-portable design will be the new norm. Eventually you will not need to plug a zillion accessories and projectors into your computer. Everything will be wireless.Plus, traditional computers don't need to be as powerful for the stuff most people need to do, hence the exploding popularity of Chromebooks. The new MacBook is Apple's answer to that burgeoning trend. People use their laptops to email, check Facebook, do some word processing, and maybe stream some movies. You don't need a beast of machine to do all that. And if you can get one with a high-resolution display and knockout design, something like the new MacBook is really appealing.
