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.

It is refreshing to see manufactures actually coming up with the Chrome version of their laptops, as we recently reported Lenovo ThinkPad 13 will be offered with Chrome. Although some might question the very existence of Chromebooks it still is a very peppy OS that suits the Internet using needs. I had used the Chromebook for nearly an year and apart from the dearth of apps browsing experience was flawless in fact it was way better than the other operating systems. On the contrary it would be great if Google tweaks its Software for Hardware policy so that the Chrome machines can accommodate both Chrome OS and Windows 10.

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. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. 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 …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
