Amazon Unveils New Echo Studio With 3D Audio, Plus More New Speakers

Published

on

Among a suite of new additions to its Echo smart speaker family, Amazon has unveiled the high-end Echo Studio, touted as its “best-sounding” of the bunch yet.

Once plugged in, the model’s built-in Alexa microphones automatically sense the acoustics of the surrounding room and fine-tune playback accordingly. The system supports 3D audio, through both Dolby Atmos and Sony’s 360 Reality Audio system, along with Amazon Music HD, the platform’s brand-new tier of high-quality streaming audio.

For the techies, it’s got five drivers: A 1-inch tweeter, three 2-inch midrange speakers, and a 5.25-inch woofer. The device is available for pre-order at $199.99, and will be released on Nov. 7.

According to a release, Amazon is also working with the three major record labels to bring their libraries to the Echo Studio’s 3D format “over time.” Soon, the Studio’s high-quality experience will also be available through Tidal HiFi.

“We love hearing feedback from customers about how they use Alexa throughout their day — whether that’s listening to music, dropping in on a loved one, trying out a new recipe, or playing a game with the family,” Amazon Alexa senior vp Tom Taylor explained in a release. “We hope these new Echo devices will give customers even more ways to access Alexa.”

At its fall 2019 hardware event, Amazon released seven other Echo additions, edging in on competitors like the Sonos One, Apple HomePod and Google Home. Those are the updated original Echo; the wireless Echo Flex; the Echo Dot with an LED clock; the Echo Show 8 with an 8-inch HD screen; Echo Buds wireless earbuds; and two Alexa-equipped products available by invite only: Echo Frames glasses and Echo Loop, a “smart ring.”

The new products come as smart speakers continue to grow in popularity: According to the latest Smart Audio report by NPR and Edison Research, 21% of Americans — or around 53 million people — now own at least one smart speaker.

More about the Echo Studio in Amazon’s promotional video below, where artists like Charlie Puth and Rick Ross test out the system.

A woman has narrated how her effort to make a cheating man sweat, failed.

She said she was talking to a guy then found out he had a girlfriend. To make him pay, she said she found the girlfriend online and sent her a message. They met up and took a selfie which they posted online to let the guy know that they were on to him.

But the unbothered guy flipped it on them. Rather than be remorseful, he reshared the photo and wrote: “Both my girls looking good for real.”

Polish Model Goes Completely Blind After Getting Her Eyeballs Dyed Black | PHOTOS

Poland

A Polish model has gone completely blind in one eye and rapidly failing sight in the other after a tattoo artist made an attempt to dye her eyeballs black.

25-year-old Aleksandra Sadowska from the city of Wroclaw in the west of Poland reportedly went to the tattooist to dye her eyeballs black so that she can look like rap artist Popek, who also had his eyes dyed black.

After the bungled procedure, Aleksandra started complaining of pains in her eyes with the tattooist telling her there was no cause of alarm and then instructed her to take painkillers as it was normal.

But after losing complete sight in her right eye, doctors told the model that the damage was irreparable and that she would soon lose sight in her left eye too.

The Polish tattoo artist, Piotr A, has been arrested is now facing three years in prison for unintentionally severely disabling the woman. He has pleaded not guilty.

During the subsequent investigation, it was discovered that the tattooist had made serious mistakes in the process, including using body ink for tattooing skin, which should not come into contact with the eye.

The woman’s lawyers told local media: ‘There is clear evidence that the tattoo artist did not know how to perform such a delicate procedure. And yet he decided to perform it which led to this tragedy.’

Aleksandra also said: ‘Unfortunately, for now doctors do not give me much optimism for improvement. The damage is too deep and extensive. I’m afraid I will be completely blind.’

She added: ‘I will not lock myself in the basement and get depressed. I have sadness behind me, but I live on.’

Samsung Outdoors Galaxy S20; Reveals It Will Change The World Of Photography As It Comes With 108-Megapixel And 100x Zoom Photos For Yourself

Published

on

Galaxy s20

Samsung redesigned the camera system on all the S20 phones, tripling the sensor size to let in more light. But only the S20 Ultra has a 108-megapixel sensor, 100x AI-assisted zoom and a 40-megapixel front-facing camera.

These pictures are not touched up or edited in any way unless stated. But note that they have been processed by CNET’s content image tool — you won’t see every pixel, but you’ll hopefully see enough to give you an early idea of the S20 Ultra’s camera performance. I also tested the video camera in regular and 8K modes, but those files are huge and harder to share here.

There will be plenty of footage in the final review, though. Keep checking back for new shots!

Galaxy S20 Ultra camera specs
108-megapixel main camera: You need to select the 108-megapixel quick setting to take a super-high-resolution photo, otherwise images resolve to 12 megapixels using nona-binning, which essentially creates one super pixel out of nine individual pixels. Part of the benefit of such a high-resolution image is to get more detail when you crop into a shot.

12-megapixel wide-angle lens: Samsung enlarged the sensor, so this isn’t the same camera as on the Galaxy Note 10 or S10 phones even though it uses the same megapixels. The goal is to let in more light, for better image quality, especially in low light.

48-megapixel telephoto camera: This gets you up to 100x “space zoom,” a feature that uses AI algorithms to take shots at extreme distance. The higher the zoom, the shakier your photo will be (a monopod or tripod is key).
DepthVision camera: I didn’t go out of my way to test this yet, but it’s meant to assist with various camera modes. You can’t take individual photos from it.

40-megapixel front-facing camera: For selfies, you can choose from wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle compositions.
