Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: What The Heck YouTube? And Other Thoughts

By Tim

Today’s video is more about me asking questions about YouTube than anything else. I am the first to admit when I can’t find an an answer on my own and ask for help, so if anyone knows the answer to the first section of the video, leave a useful comment!
The second portion of the video is simply me venting a bit about co-workers and commenters on YouTube in general.

Nothing technical is this video, except that related to YouTube. The behavior described in the video is confined to only my personal YouTube account.

In the second second section, you might recognize a few things I describe about arrogant asshats in general, including co-workers and YouTube commenters.

Below is the promised video. If you have an answer to my question, please leave a comment!

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!

Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 10.5 Leaks in Fresh Live Pictures, Gets FCC Certified

By James A.

Samsung isn’t only leaking the Galaxy Tab S4 these days, but also a new Galaxy Tab A model. It’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 10.5, which leaked via the FCC itself. As you’ve guessed probably, the device got certified and leaks ensued.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 10.5 is expected to offer a 10.5 inch screen with narrow bezels and a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The device appeared over at the FCC with the model number SM-T590. It has narrow bezels only on the sides, but the top and bottom are pretty thick. The fingerprint scanner is nowhere to be seen and neither is a Home button, just like on the Galaxy Tab S4.

Samsung could be going all out on iris scanners this year, it appears. The device is also said to feature dual speakers at the bottom, flanking the USB Type-C port. That’s all we know so far and we can’t help but wonder if we’ll get an Exynos CPU inside or Snapdragon. Samsung also leaked the Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 and Advanced2 XL exactly one week ago, in live pics too, so it’s an entire series of devices, that’s just bursting to come up.

At least a few of them are probably meant for IFA 2018, while others are expected on August 9th, when the Galaxy Note 9 is inaugurated.

In order to qualify, the customer must prove he/she is enrolled in a college, or they’re the parents of such a person. Teachers and faculty members can also get the offer, but they have to prove that teaching is their job. The iPad Pro is sold for $629 for the 10.5 inch model or $779 for the 12.9 inch unit. As far as the bundled gift goes, it’s a pair of free Beats Power3 Wireless earphones.

Another promo gives you the Apple Pencil for $89. Of course you can also apply a pre-paid Apple Store Gift Card for this offer as well and even trade gadgets. If you go to Apple’s Back to School website, you’ll have to type in your info about the phone, tablet, computer, watch you want to surrender in order to get cash for a purchase.

Apple may give you up to $290 for a smartphone, $250 per tablet and $1000 tops for a computer. Another Back to School bundle has the Pro Apps together for $199.99. Those are Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4 and MainStage 3.

Apple Prepping 11 inch iPad Pro, New Macs, MacBooks and More for Fall 2018

By Radu Iorga

After yesterday’s release of new MacBook Pro models, the leak floodgates are open and reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo unveiled a real stampede of novelty onto us. No longer with KGI Securities, the analyst remains as prolific and visionary as ever over at TF International Securities. Let’s see the Fall 2018 roadmap he predicted.

We’re not going to focus on iPhones, Apple Watches or others, just tablets and PCs. So, the main thing that interests us is the iPad Pro model with Face ID and no Home button. Is have an updated 12.9 inch screen probably with a notch and also there’s a brand new 11 inch iPad. I imagine there will be more RAM inside, the latest Apple Axx CPUs and some camera bumps. It’s supposed to replace the 10.5 inch model.

The quantity of Apple Pencil patents this year and the fact Samsung is bringing a new S-Pen may also mean we’re about to see an Apple Pencil 2.0. Kuo predicts new Macs too, with improved CPUs, plus new MacBook models, an iMac with a seriously bumped up screen and a surprising product: a low price notebook. It’s not going to be a MacBook Air, but it could be “Air-ish”.

Apple is also scheduled to go full scale with AirPower and updated AirPods production. If all of these are real, we’re looking at a very wide gamut of tablets to pick from: 7.9 inch, 9.7 inch, 11 inch and 12.9 inch iPads, not to forget the 10.5 inch one. In spite of diagonal hikes, the bodies are expected to be compact and bezels narrow. Ming-Chi Kuo is usually spot on with rumors and we expect him to be right again.

I should highlight that the new Apple Pencil is my own prediction and not Kuo’s.

PC market appears to have grown for the first time since 2012

By Peter Bright

PC sales were up year-on-year in the second quarter of 2018, the first such increase since the first quarter of 2012. Market research firms Gartner and IDC both reported growth in the market, of 1.4 and 2.7 percent, respectively.

The two companies track numbers differently: Gartner includes Windows-based tablets but excludes Chromebooks and non-Windows tablets, whereas IDC includes Chromebooks but excludes all tablets, even those like the Surface Pro that are used and sold as PCs.

Gartner reports that the growth was driven by increased business sales and that consumer shipments declined. IDC similarly pointed to the “business-driven refresh cycle” as a reason for the increase. This mirrors Microsoft’s financial reporting; the software giant distinguishes between business and consumer sales of Windows and Office, and the general pattern over the last few quarters is that business sales have been robust even as consumer demand continues to soften. Enterprises are migrating to Windows 10, and they’re buying new hardware to do so.
