Samsung Unveils Chromebook 3, a Metal Reinforced Frugal Laptop Offering 11-Hours of Battery Backup

Samsung has pulled the wraps from the Chromebook 3 and this was one of the few launches that was low key and didn’t actually garner much attention. The product itself is a 2.5-pound notebook constructed with reinforced metal body and a 11-inch display set to resolve at 1366 x 768 pixels.


The Chromebook 3 is powered by the Intel Celeron N3050 and will be made available in both 2GB/3GB RAM configurations. On the storage front, the Chromebook 3 offers 16GB of on board storage. The laptop is well endowed connectivity wise as it comes with Bluetooth 4.0, 720p Webcam, USB 3.0 port, USB 2.0 Port and an HDMI out.

The keyboard ergonomics seems something that the Samsung has attended to and as a result the keyboard comes with UL certified keycaps and the display is hinged to offer a tilt of 180-degrees. The best part of the Chromebook 3 is the 33Wh battery pack that is expected to last for a whopping 11-hours.

The Chromebook 3 is expected to hit the shelves in early 2016 and will start selling across multiple sales channel including

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages.

You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …
