Google is testing the Project Loon waters with some improved technology. That’s for the future, though, we know you may just want a new gadget, and we also have some news on those.
Google’s Project Loon proved not to be as “looney” as we expected. The Search Giant has been able to provide internet in limited markets, but the plan is to bring reliable internet to places that would otherwise not be able to enjoy such commodity. This would be done with balloons that float around the stratosphere, sending internet-friendly waves down to earth.
So far speeds have been a bit limited, though. Google is trying something new with their latest Project Loon endeavor. They brought Brazillian school Linoca Gayoso internet for the very first time! That was not the only accomplishment – the Search Giant also managed to test LTE speeds with this Project Loon launch.
Opinion: It seems almost unbelievable that Google can work out LTE speeds in these balloons, floating miles upon miles above us. I do have to wonder if these LTE speeds are slower than what we may experience in our cities, though.
Looking to get one of Samsung’s amazing new tablets? The Samsung Galaxy Tab S line of tablets is looking quite amazing. We went to check them out at the Samsung Premiere event, where we gave the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 our hands-on treatment.
Those planning to purchase one of these tablets will be happy to learn they will go on presale tomorrow, June 17th, in the USA. They will cost $399 and $499, relatively, which is not a bad price for such stunning devices.
Opinion: I am thinking very hard about signing up for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. Those specs and resolution are astounding. And though the price is higher, I feel like it’s very worth it.
No manufacturer has managed to really offer PC gaming expeirences in a mobile device. The NVIDIA Shield is a great Android gaming device, but it doesn’t come close to a PC gaming experience (even though they do offer PC streaming).
SteamBoy Machine Team says they can accomplish PC gaming in a portable device with their SteamBoy console. This device would sport a quad-core CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and a 5-inch touchscreen. The company is only teasing the device for now. More details should be coming soon.
Opinion: We deem such a device very possible, especially considering how small Steam machines are becoming. Of course, it won’t be as powerful as a PC, but the company claims it will be able to run “most games currently available”.
