Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: What Happened to the Zotac Ci329?

By Tim

Back in May of this year Zotac announced the Ci329 N4100 Intel powered Zbox Nano mini-PC. This is a Gemini Lake version of the previous C series which had Celeron or Apollo Lake processors.

I currently use a ZBox Ci323 with the Celeron N3150 processor and it is totally adequate for what I use it for. It is passively cooled, very fast, considering the low-end CPU and just does everything well.

However last night I was exploring the future a bit and realized I need a new monitor with built in speakers and a VESA mount on the rear. This way I can mount just about any mini-PC to the back and essentially have an All-In-One PC without the all-in-one price tag.

So I started looking at a slightly more powerful Zotac, the Ci327 with the N3450 Apollo Lake processor. Essentially the duplicate of what I currently use, but with a faster processor and faster ram.

So  while comparing specs on the Zotac site I noticed they also had a Gemini Lake N4100 powered ZBox and so I checked the specs on that one as well. The model is the Ci329 and I decided to find a review on it on YouTube. Essentially there were no videos concerning it except some corporate marketing type videos from Zotac.

I found that to be strange, you would think a 3 month gap since they announced this PC to be more than enough to get it on the market. Turns out that I can’t find anyone selling this thing!

So I will leave the details for the video below to explain. Make sure to visit our channel and Like and Subscribe also!

Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablets Now Discounted Till August 25th; Here’s the New Price

By James A.

Even though it’s not time for a Black Friday or any sort of special celebration, Amazon has decided to discount the Fire 7 Kids Edition tablets, for a limited time only. Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition is now priced at just $79.99 down from $99.99 from now till August 25th.

This is meant as a companion device for the little ones, offering access to content, games and services tailor made for the kids. There’s content from Nickelodeon, PBS and Disney, plus much more. And since the young ones tend to move around a lot and also break stuff, the device packs a tough protective case, making it harder for kids to put a dent in the slate’s case or screen.

As far as specs go, the Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition packs a 7 inch screen, 16 GB of storage and a variety of color choices. There’s blue, yellow and pink among them. The product is available with 2 year of worry free guarantee and 1 year of Fire for Kids Unlimited and a bundled Kid Proof Case. A welcome feature is the microSD card slot, that lets you expand storage.

The 7 inch screen is an IPS and offers HD resolution, while the battery life sits at about 8 hours. A quad core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz should be enough for the most basic of tasks, Netflix included. By the way, there’s also a VGA front camera and a 2 MP rear shooter and dual band WiFi. You can get the device here discounted.

Apple Working With New Stylus Suppliers; Fresh Rumors About iPhone Styli Appear

By Radu Iorga

Today’s news about Apple concerns accessories, or better said the stylus. The Apple Pencil has been rumored to come to the iPhone for a bit now and today we learn that Apple has new partners and suppliers in this area.

The Apple Pencil has been working with the iPad Pro for a few years and got support for the cheaper 2018 iPad this year. A report from Economic Daily News from China shows that Apple approved a new stylus supplier from Taiwan. The report claims that the company (Elan) is going to supply touch and pen related chips for the two new iPhone X handsets this year. Those are supposed to be the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Plus, according to the latest naming patterns leaked.

Using a stylus with a 6.5 inch iPhone makes sense, but it’ll be a bit odd on a 5.8 incher. If you ask me, I’m reading more into this partnership than just iPhone action. We’ve been hearing about a new generation of stylus for months now and we’ve also seen a patent that concerns its tip. We could be getting ready for an Apple Pencil 2.0 right about now. The Pencil could stand for being slimmer, offer even more levels of pressure and get some buttons.

We take everything with a grain of salt at the moment, but since screen panels keep evolving, it’s not out of this world to see an iPhone with a stylus. Speaking of which, the next gen iPhones are less than a month away from being announced.

Google Rumored to be Working on Its Own Smart Display Device

By James A.

The Google Smart Display devices are coming in, with companies like Lenovo making moves in this area. For those who don’t know, Google Smart Display is both a platform and a type of device inaugurated earlier this year: a smart speaker with a large screen. Lenovo, LG, Sony and JBL got on board and released their versions and now Google is said to be prepping its very own hardware.

It’s just been two years since Google Home was introduced and Google can’t seem to be enough of its own hardware products. It wants to push Google Assistant more and more and thus, here comes a new machine. They have yet to debut a display totting smart speaker, so that’s the main novelty. The new gadget will be powered by Google Assistant, of course, it’ll play YouTube videos and it’ll be helpful in the kitchen for recipes and the likes.

It’s basically Google’s own version of the Lenovo Smart Display. Nikkei Asian writes that sources from inside Google claim that the big G wants to ship around 3 million units for the first batch of the new model or smart speaker, that comes with a display. That’s a rather large number, in a segment that not even Apple could crack. Amazon meanwhile shipped just 315,000 units of the Echo Show last year.

Lenovo Smart Display has already been appreciated by people in the biz, but we can’t see any future evolution of the device. Yes, I know it’s also useful for videocalls, but… is it?! Google has to make its own unit extra cheap and also offer some incentive for buying it. Maybe throw in a subscription or a cool TV show from YouTube.

Lenovo Tablet 10 Gemini Lake 2 in 1 Device Now Up for Sale, Priced at $449

By Radu Iorga

The Lenovo Tablet 10 is a device you may not have heard of, but it’s actually worth your time. The product is a 2 in 1 machine, that just debuted and it’s up for sale for a mere $449. It’s got a Gemini Lake CPU and a 10.1 inch display.

It also comes with a detachable keyboard and support for pen input, which means you use it as both a tablet and a notebook. Inside there’s an Intel Gemini Lake processor and this is a low power device meant for a long battery life rather than high end performance. The Lenovo Tablet 10 was actually unveiled at CES 2018 in January, but it only was detailed in April and arrived now, so that’s a big delay.

It doesn’t look shabby and I feel it’s superior to some Chromebooks and the rest of the Celeron and Pentium crowd, at least as far as looks go. It has a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and relies on an Intel Celeron N4100 quad core CPU, plus 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of eMMC storage. There’s also a 39 Wh battery in the mix, WiFi ac and Bluetooth 4.1. On the connectivity front, we’ve got USB Type-C, USB Type-A, HDMI and audio jack.

Stereo 1W speakers will provide some acoustics and there’s also a fingerprint scanner and a 5 MP back camera, plus a 2 MP front shooter. It weighs around 1.5 pounds and measures 10.3 inch x 7 inch x 0.4 inch. Lenovo could start selling 4G LTE versions of the device soon and some with NFC, up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of storage. For now it’s just WiFi and $449 in USA.
