ASUS believes a woman with a computer is better than a woman with a kitten

cwuddfwusaeargf Welcome to another episode of Social Media Managers Who Are Having a Bad Day. On todays episode we present Asus‘ assertion that a “cute girl” with a cat worse than a “sophisticated lady” with a Zenbook 3(tm) laptop. On the surface this argument might be a little specious – after all, cats are pretty cool – but what is Asus really saying? *GRABBING… Read More

This is the droid your household has been looking for

ASUS New Zenbo Robot
For as much as people talk about (and rightfully get excited about) smartphone advancements, we don't often hear about technological strides in the field of robotics. Truth be told, this has always struck me as odd given that many robots today possess capabilities that have seemingly been lifted from science fiction novels. Boston Dynamics, of course, famously has a lineup of impressively capable and equally terrifying robots, many of which are designed to look like and act like animals. And we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the ASIMO robot from Honda, a technological marvel that Honda touts as the "world's most advanced humanoid robot." The most recent entrant onto the list comes from ASUS, of all companies. Earlier this week, ASUS chairman Jonney Shih took the stage at Computex and introduced the world to Zenbo, a $599 household robot that looks and acts like a real-world version of Wall-E.

The craziest new Android flagship you’ve ever seen does the one thing the iPhone 7 can’t

Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe Price
There’s no question about it, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 is one of the best Android phones money can buy this year. But Asus has come up with a phone that’s not only cheaper than Samsung’s newest flagship, it also packs crazy hardware and specs that should offer an amazing performance. The new Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe has specs so impressive that it could easily power up an ultraportable laptop. We’re looking at 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of built-in storage – and before you ask, yes, it's the same kind of speedy flash memory that’s found inside Samsung’s Galaxy S7. And yes, you can further expand it via microSD storage. Better yet, Asus seems to have discovered the secret recipe for fixing the worst thing about the iPhone's design: The company has crafted an all-aluminum design that removes the ugly antenna lines from the equation.

Amazon Now Sells Its Very Own ARM Chips

ASUS and LG mock Apple’s ‘bumpy’ iPhone battery case

lg-asus-apple-fun

Earlier this week, Apple launched its very first official battery case for the iPhone 6/6s. It’d be an understatement to say that it got some attention on social media, mostly from people who couldn’t believe the design-focused company released something so hideous. In fact, you’ll be hard pushed to find someone who has something good to say about the way the case looks.

Not to miss a good marketing opportunity, ASUS and LG were among those mocking the battery case and using it to sell the benefits of its own products. ASUS was keen to point out that, even with the battery case attached, the iPhone 6 is still no match for the ZenFone Max. ASUS claims its 5000mAh battery-powered smartphone can handle 2 hours more video playback, 2 hour more internet use and 12 hours more talk time than a case-equipped iPhone.

Meanwhile, LG took a slightly different line with the V10, ribbing the Apple case’s ‘bumpy’ design. Incidentally, LG’s V10 has a 3,000mAh battery which you can fast-charge up to 50% in just 40mins. :

It’s no surprise to see the companies exploiting a weakness in Apple’s armor to fuel their own marketing efforts, and the Cupertino-based company could certainly have tried to make it a little harder. Right now, the humped battery case is an easy target.

One thing no company has mocked is perhaps the one thing that has impressed all of us: iOS integration. When an iPhone has a Smart Battery Case attached, it displays both the phone and case’s battery levels in the notification drawer’s ‘Today’ view. What’s more, it charges the iPhone automatically and charges via Lightning cable. Those are some convenient features, for sure. Whether or not you’d want a ‘bumpy’ case in your hand to gain those features is another matter entirely.
