Bixby, Samsung’s new AI assistant, is one of the key features of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The fact that Sammie has decided to add a dedicated physical button for Bixby on each of the new flagships speaks for itself, but many were disappointed to find out that the virtual helper will only speak English and South Korean upon release, and probably won’t come with a full range of functionalities.

So, when will Bixby be updated with new capabilities and languages? Until recently, no one really knew, but the support page of Samsung Germany might have just given us the …

Best tablets (Spring 2017)

Tablets are certainly undergoing some huge transformations: the darling form factor of the early 2010s, in recent years it has become obvious that people do not buy as many tablets as manufacturers thought and the once that they purchase, they certainly do not upgrade every two years or so. Much like traditional laptops, tablets have a longer life and the upgrade cycle is much longer.
