Samsung Gives Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 a Jelly Bean Upgrade

If you've got one of Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 or Galaxy Tab 2 devices, we know what you're doing this weekend. Most likely, you'll spend at least a little time checking out some of your device's new features.

Samsung Electronics just announced plans to update both devices to Android 4.1 (aka Jelly Bean). The upgrade will be available to U.S. users of the WiFi versions of the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 2.

Galaxy Note 10.1 users will get the most goodies, including a new collection of features known as the Premium Suite. The upgrade boasts better multi-tasking and productivity, as well as improved S Pen support and the ability to easily open and resize multiple apps and even view them across the screen in layers.

Part of those perks will include the new Multi Window feature for a dual view, while running two apps side by side. The Cascade View will allow users to freely resize, move and pin selected applications in multiple views, all while running them simultaneously or while operating the home-screen.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 users will see a noticable difference after getting the upgrade.

Some of the S Pen features will include Air View, so users can quickly preview content without having to actually open it. That means you can preview video while scrubbing, preview email attachments without opening, preview photos without opening the album, and more. There's also something called Quick Command, which allows the S Pen to activate applications and services that are used most often, using command shortcuts and preset S Pen strokes. Other S Pen features include enhanced handwriting features for notes, memos and email, as well as new ready-to-use templates, photo notes, and much more.

If you aren't familiar about what this device can do, check out our Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Review. Both Ian White and Chris Chiarella seemed very impressed with what this device could do, calling it "a very credible option, particularly for those who require a tablet for more than just consumption of content."

"Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 created a new category by delivering content creation capabilities in addition to content consumption," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of consumer IT product marketing at Samsung Electronics America. "However, we always strive to deliver unexpected value to our customers. By providing not just Jelly Bean, but dramatic improvements to the multitasking and S Pen features on the devices, we're ensuring that the Galaxy Note 10.1 remains at the forefront of innovation.

Yeah, there doesn't seem to be as much fanfare over the Galaxy Tab 2 getting the upgrade, but both the 10.1 and 7.0 will get Android 4.1 as well. (That said, we loved the device in its original form. Check out the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review for more information.) Across all of the devices, Samsung is promising a better user interface, faster response times and performance and just a better user experience overall. Everyone's got to love that! Well, not the non-WiFi users. The upgrade won't be available to them just yet, and Samsung hasn't said when that upgrade will be made available.

Galaxy Tab 2 users will also reap the benefits of a better user interface and better overall performance.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

System of a Down - Toxicity Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit a slice of hyperactive, politicized nu-metal from 2001.
Toxicity came out one week before September 11th, 2001. Its lead single, “Chop Suey!,” famously landed on a Clear Channel blacklist of songs to avoid broadcasting in the wake of the attacks on the World Trade Center. “Chop Suey!” contained the word “suicide,” so it joined Dave Matthews Band’s “Crash Into Me” and Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’” on a roster of tracks that might conceivably remind listeners of the recent national trauma.
