Samsung launches its PRO Series with two variants

For my bad eyes, BIG is BETTER.

That's exactly what the PRO series by Samsung Galaxy featured when it launched the 12.2" Galaxy Note PRO and the 8.4" Galaxy Tab PRO. Both variants boast of a WQXGA display with 4 million pixels for crisp, vibrant color display.

The Galaxy Note PRO is HUGE!!! At 12.2" of screen real estate that is less than an inch shy of my 13" Macbook Air's screen! It runs on an Octacore processor and has an 8mp rear camera and a 2mp front camera. It comes ready with 32GB internal storage, upgradable to 64GB with a memory card. It runs on a 9500 mAh battery. Wow, really powerful. I'd need to upgrade all my power banks if I had this one! And of course, like the Note 3 smartphone and the Note 10.1 tablets, the Galaxy Note PRO has the S-Pen and the same features.

What a wide, wide, wide screen area!
Because it is that big, the Multi-Window feature is really neat to work with -- imagine 4 windows open simultaneously without putting a strain on your eyes. Watch a video or movie on one window, have your social media network in another and still have 2 windows for work-related stuff.

That's an iPad Air on top of the Galaxy Note PRO. WHOA!!!

Wanted by Google: a Pokemon Master!

This has got to be the most fun and best time-waster April Fools Day idea from Google.

This morning, I saw some tweets talking about a new YouTube video from Google so I followed the link. Check it out here.




As it turns out, Google's April Fools video was not just an entertaining video.  There is an actual game embedded inside Google Maps that lets you scan the world looking for, and capturing, Pokemon!
