Preview: Samsung Electronics Brings The Freestyle to Singapore

Tuesday, January 11th, 2022

Following the announcement of The Freestyle at CES 2022 less than a week ago, Samsung Electronics shipped a unit of The Freestyle to Singapore for a sneak preview for Singapore media.

The Freestyle is a 100-inch smart TV in disguise and includes a projector, speaker and ambient light rolled into one.

The Freestyle is a 100-inch smart TV in disguise and includes a projector, speaker and ambient light rolled into one.

Samsung describes The Freestyle a portable projector, smart speaker and lighting device all rolled into one.

To me, it’s essentially a 100-inch smart-TV rolled into a lightweight (830g) and portable “canister” that you can carry around to a BBQ or a hotel staycation.

Driven by Samsung’s Tizen OS and controlled by a remote control, it doesn’t have an in-built battery so you’ll either need access to a wall outlet, or a USB-PD battery bank that can put out 20V and 50W.

So without having to lug a 100-inch TV around, you can just fish out The Freestyle, plug it (USB-C port) into a power source – in front of a flat surface (which can be a wall or the ceiling) – and you’re in business … you have effectively a 100-inch smart TV in front of you to stream content from the Web.

There is an in-built 360-degree speaker included.

#tech4WorkFromHome: Dell Latitude 9520 2-in-1 Laptop Computer

Sunday, January 2nd, 2022

The core of most #WorkFromHome workspace is the computer, around which everything else is built around. It’s important to start on the right foot and get a good computer that has the performance and connectivity to anchor your entire #WFH setup.

The Dell Latitude 9420 2-in-1 is a great desktop replacement for #WFH that can be brought on the road with its compactness, long battery life and 5G LTE connectivity.

What does one look out for in a home computer for #WorkFromHome?

For me, it must have the performance to handle most work-related activities, ranging from basic tasks like word processing and surfing the Web (for accessing emails, research and other cloud-based activities), to more demanding photo editing and video editing for content production.

I eschewed desktop computers a long time ago, in favour of notebook computers for space saving and the flexibility of bringing them on the road.

The disadvantage of a small display is easily overcome at home with an external large monitor.
