Samsung announces 2018 Galaxy J3 and J7, available ‘early June’

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

Samsung has announced sequels to last year's budget Galaxy J3 and J7 phones. This year's phones will go on sale "through select retail and carrier partners starting in early June and throughout the summer." Samsung didn't mention a price for either device; only that they'll be "affordable." Last year's J3 was $149.99, while the J7 was $219.99.

The announcement is a little vague, couching specs in uncertain terms — screens are referred to only as "HD," which in all likelihood means 720p; batteries are called "long-lasting" and "powerful;" and there's nothing to be found on processors or RAM — but hey, the devices are budget offerings.

Alexa Announcements one-way voice feature rolling out to Echo devices

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

Amazon is rolling out a feature today that lets users broadcast messages to connected Echo devices. The company is calling it Alexa Announcements, and the functionality is very similar to the broadcast feature Google Home has had since late last year.

Telling an Echo "announce," "broadcast" or "tell everyone" something will make all connected devices on the account relay the message. "Millions of customers already have more than one Echo device in their home," Amazon says, and given that Echo devices have have been able to function as two-way intercoms and make phone calls since last year, this feature seems like a logical step.
