Samsung Series 3 Chromebox gets a redesign

by 21 comments

Samsung launched the original Series 3 Chromebox back in May last year along with the Chromebook. The Chromebox was a desktop PC similar to the Mac mini. But perhaps it was a bit too similar, as the design was almost universally slammed for being a clone of the latter.

It still has the same 1.9GHz Intel Celeron B840 processor, Intel HD Graphics, 4GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB flash storage. But the design has now been changed to a very simplified white, monolithic shape that frankly looks like something placed upside down. Read more »

by 25 comments

Samsung put a number of exclusive features on their high-end Android devices, like Smart Stay and Smart Rotate. Now, using the GMD Smart Rotate app you can replicate both of those features on a non-TouchWiz device (or on a lower-end Samsung).

The free version of the app implements Smart Rotate – it uses the front-facing camera instead of the accelerometer to rotate the screen.
