Having spent my summer trying out the eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S, I looked forward to trying out the next model—the eufy RoboVac 30C. It promises to rectify the few complaints I had with the earlier model. Metaphorically revving up the suction power, I took it for a spin.
The premium Chromebook market has exploded over the last couple of years, and Samsung helped push that charge with the Chromebook Pro and Plus. It recently revamped the Plus model with updated internals, and now it’s adding LTE to that platform.
If you’re not familiar with the Chromebook Plus, here’s a bit of backstory for you. The original Chromebook Plus was launched at CES in 2017 alongside the Chromebook Pro. Samsung has since revamped the Plus hardware with an updated processor for improved performance, calling this new version the Chromebook Plus V2. Super original.
Now, however, it’s announcing yet another change to that platform with the Chromebook Plus V2 LTE. That’s a tasty little name that just rolls of the tongue, isn’t it? It otherwise features the same innards as the other V2—Intel Celeron 3965Y processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB of storage—though Samsung says it worked closely with Google and Intel to get LTE on board for this new model.
This marks one of the first higher end Chromebooks to add LTE—in fact, the last high-end LTE-enabled Chromebook that comes to mind was the Chromebook Pixel. But I digress—it’s great to see a snappy little Chromebook like the Plus show up with LTE.
While band information isn’t available, Verizon will be selling the Chromebook Plus, so it’s pretty clear that there will be at least one option in the US. It’s unclear if the Plus LTE will be compatible with other carriers, but the full release is coming on November 2nd so hopefully we’ll learn more then.
The Chromebook Plus V2 LTE will cost $599 and be available from Best Buy, Verizon, and directly from Samsung.
When the Xbox One first came out, it wasn’t backwards compatible with any older games. That changed in 2015 when they started rolling out selective compatibility for Xbox 360 games, but original Xbox games have been left out of the loop. Until today.
There’s a persistent rumor that Facebook, using the app on your phone, is covertly listening to everything you say and using the things you say out loud to send you incredibly targeted ads. Facebook may do a lot of shady things, but I have bad new for the conspiracy theorists: it just isn’t true.
