The Morning After: Tuesday, May 2nd 2017

Hey, good morning!

It was a day of leaks and, erm, green tights. We got glimpses at the next Surface laptop, and that (eventual) Fitbit smartwatch, which, looks like other smartwatches. The first lump of extra Zelda content has been teased in detail: hopefully, you like dressing up like Mr. Tingle.


Expect to see more of this later.Pictures of a ‘Surface laptop’ leak out ahead of today’s Microsoft event

At around 9:30AM ET today, Microsoft will show off some of its plans to take on Chromebooks for students. That is expected to include a cloud-focused focused version of Windows 10 and some new hardware, like this laptop. Pictures and specs for a 13.5-inch laptop leaked out last night via Twitter, so all we really need to know now is what’s inside and how much it will cost. Stay tuned.


‘Tingle’ and ‘Majora’s Mask’ options are coming to Link’s wardrobe, as well as a new Hard Mode.
First ‘Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ DLC adds more reasons to replay

For players who’ve already traversed every corner of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s open world, the company has added more details of its first DLC expansion. Due sometime this summer, the company will add a ‘Hard Mode’ where enemies are powered up by one level, have higher maximum levels and they slowly regain health — oh, and enemies and chests can be found in the sky.


The ‘mother of WiFi’.

“Bombshell” is a comprehensive look at Hedy Lamarr’s storied life

Hedy Lamarr’s, regardless of what you know her for, achievements are many. This new documentary, Bombshell, makes that clear. She was a hardworking actress, a determined producer, a patriotic supporter of American troops, a wife (many times over), an unpredictable mother and an icon of Hollywood glamor. But one title Lamarr never got real recognition for during her lifetime was that of inventor. It was her wartime invention that earned her the title of “mother of WiFi.” She came up with a method of sending radio signals by making them jump between channels called frequency-hopping out of a desire to help the Navy deploy radio-guided torpedoes without enemy interference during World War II. Unfortunately, Lamarr’s beauty and scandals kept many from appreciating her technological achievements.


Let’s talk.How to be a human being in the comments: A refresher

So it has been a long time since we last posted comments guidelines and standards. To put it in perspective, the last time we talked comments with y’all, the iPhone 5 hadn’t been released, Android fans were using Jelly Bean and Facebook had just gone public. A lot can change in the course of nearly five years, but one thing that’s remained constant is our dedication to our readers. To that end, we wanted to take a minute to answer some questions, explain some features and, frankly, lay down the law when it comes to the comments section and our social channels.


The future of AR may be closer than it appears.Avegant’s light-field tech gives hope to a mixed-reality future

One thing we’ll need for augmented reality to make the next big leap is the ability to display multiple focal points at once, mimicking the way we see real objects. Light field technology could fix that if only someone had a workable solution — enter Avegant. Nicole Lee tried on the company’s prototype headset, and says it felt like putting “a 100-inch TV in front of my face.” So far, it’s less vaporware than Magic Leap and has a wider field of view than Microsoft’s HoloLens.


The company’s troubled smartwatch looks very retro.

Fitbit’s upcoming smartwatch and wireless headphones leak out

Fitbit’s long-time-coming smartwatch has leaked and appears to swap out the clunky octagonal design of its Blaze fitness tracker for a more traditional square face. It also features a metal unibody case, which adds some colorful accents around the screen. Fitbit will also be taking on Apple’s BeatsX wireless headphones with its own pair, codenamed “Parkside.” It’ll hang around your neck and feature a slight metallic accent. We don’t know much about its features yet, but based on the leaked images it looks like a typical pair of wireless earbuds.


Better sound than the Amazon Echo, but at a higher price.
Apple’s Siri speaker could be the ‘one more thing’ at WWDC

Analysts believe that Apple will introduce its Siri-equipped speaker (possibly Apple’s “first home AI product”) at its Worldwide Developer Conference in early June. And to no one’s surprise, it would be pitched as a premium alternative to the Amazon Echo — a subwoofer and seven tweeters would deliver “excellent” sound. Naturally, there will be tight integration with other Apple devices. The main problem? You might be waiting a while. Kuo understands that it’d arrive sometime in the second half of the year.

But wait, there’s more…

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
