    Samsung Unpacked 2024 in Paris

    Samsung Unpacked 2024 in Paris

    It’s time for the summer Olympics and also the gadget Olympics? Who can outdo Samsung when it comes to launching new products every year? At its second Unpacked event of 2024, Samsung showed off seven different devices: the Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Watch Ultra, Galaxy Buds 3, Galaxy Buds 3 Pro, Galaxy Watch 7, Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6. Many of these look familiar, sure, but Samsung copying Apple copying Samsung copying other smaller companies is a tired, old tale. Our hosts Cherlynn Low and Sam Rutherford dig into all the highlights from Samsung’s event in Paris this week, as well as some other news in streaming services.

    The 2024 Razrs make a compelling case for foldables

    Motorola is still trying to reclaim the glory of its original Razr phone with its latest foldables. The new Razr and Razr+ are more stylish than the previous models, and at $700 and $1,000 respectively, they're surprisingly affordable for devices with massive folding OLED screens. In other news, we chat about Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange being freed from prison, Rabbit's massive security hole in the R1 AI gadget, and a horrific Sora AI commercial from Toys "R" Us.

And they dive into other new features they're looking forward to, like the iPhone mirroring in macOS Sequoia and iPadOS 18's surprisingly cool Calculator app.

BRING BACK LIVE STREAMS Great blend of nerdy and informative

I watch live on YouTube with the chat and podcast gang. Great time. Very informative.

Good content except for…

Cherlynn’s voice. I’m sure she’s proficient at reporting new tech news but they need to lower her levels when she talks. She goes from normal tone to an annoying teenage voice that goes too high and too fast which i cannot stand. Davindra is very good and rest of the podcast Crew but please giving her the mic.

Love it!
