Chuwi V10HD Dual Boot Tablet Officially Announced, Comes With Windows 8 and Android

By James A.

chuwi-v10hd-dual-boot

The concept of a dual boot tablet is not new, but the Chuwi model below is and it comes with Windows 8 and Android. The device is named Chuwi V10HD and it appears that its maker is using the relaxed Windows licensing to release a rare kind of product.

This dual boot slate can switch easily between operating systems and it comes with a 10 inch 1920 x 1200 pixel display, as well as 3G and WiFi connectivity. The product can pass from one OS to the other easily and relies on an Intel Bay Trail 64 bit processor, clocked at 1.83 GHz and accompanied by 2 GB of RAM. The tablet is priced at just $276, that sounds very nice and one aspect I’m curious about here is the battery capacity.

We also know this model has 3G supports, WiFi, Bluetooth and its design is actually pretty nice, with glass at both the front and the back, which would make it an uniquely designed slate. Fingers crossed for this product getting to Europe or US soon!

Yahoo killing off Yahoo after 20 years of hierarchical organization

By Peter Bright

Yahoo’s homepage as it appeared in 1996 with the directory front and center.

As part of an ongoing effort to streamline and focus its business, Yahoo today announced that it was retiring its namesake product.

In January 1994, Jerry Yang and David Filo, graduate students at Stanford University, created a hierarchical directory of websites, “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web.” In March of that year, they gave it the name “Yahoo!,” for “Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle.”

In the early days of the Web, these categorized, human-curated Web listings were all the rage. Search engines existed, but rapidly became notorious for their poor result quality. On a Web that was substantially smaller than the one we enjoy today, directories were a useful alternative way of finding sites of interest.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Gets First Unboxing Clip Posted Officially (Video)

By Radu Iorga

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-4-unboxing (1)

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 was sold out on Korean preorders a few days ago and today it’s available in South Korean stores. As people are getting more and more excited about the phablet, here’s an unboxing video or two to detail what’s inside the package.

You can watch here a 2 minute Korean unboxing video done by SamsungTomorrow, a PR arm of the company. The phablet comes inside a 100% recyclable box, that contains the usual USB cable, charger, headphones, headphone plugs, the battery, spare S Pen tips and manuals. Of course, packaging may vary depending on the region, but basically this is what you should be getting with the phone.

 

Notice how the theme of the box has changed now and it’s no longer a wooden imitation. The Note 4 looks a bit thicker than I imagined and keeps the general design lines of its last two predecessors. It’s a Quad HD device with a Super AMOLED panel, 3 GB of RAM and an Exynos 5433 chip in the Korean version, while other parts of the world will get a Snapdragon 805. Last I heard, the worldwide rollout of the product happens in mid October and Europeans will get it with a price tag of around 800 euros.

Folks in USA will spend about $299 on it with a 2 year contract.
