Xiaomi launches the Mi Speaker, a smart speaker with Google assistant

From Xiaomi, we had already known many smart speakers, of all possible sizes and formats, but they all had the same problem, they had Xiaomi’s XiaoAI voice assistant, completely useless for us because we had the voice assistant in the Chinese language.

But today we have met a new speaker that has arrived in India with the Google assistant, which maximizes the chances that it will arrive in Spain in the near future since in this way it would be equated with so many other speakers with this assistant in our country.

Features of the Xiaomi Mi Speaker

We are facing a speaker that reminds us of a lot of the classic Amazon Echo, with a cylindrical shape and the notification LED in a ring at the top, it is practically a visual clone. It offers everything we can expect from one of these speakers, albeit with Xiaomi’s unmistakable stamp.

It has a powerful 12W speaker, with 63.5mm drivers, so it is undoubtedly a speaker that is characterized by a high-quality sound compared to its competitors. In addition, its Texas Instruments processor is capable of offering high fidelity sound in combination with the sound algorithms used.

It has DTS sound, something like the HDR of sound, optimizing the audio with a richer, more defined sound with clear voices and strong bass without distortion.

Undoubtedly what interests us most, in this case, is that despite being a Xiaomi speaker, it offers us the Google assistant, which allows it to be compatible with thousands of Internet of Things devices with which we can control the smart home using voice commands.

When we say that it looks like a clone of the classic Echo is that it is so, because we also have several buttons at the top to be able to raise and lower the volume, as well as stop and resume playback, or mute the microphone.

At the moment, the version that has been put on sale in India is available in Hindi or English. Of course, it has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, to be able to be connected to the Internet and receive commands both live voice and through the app hundreds or thousands of kilometers away.

An interesting function of these speakers is that we can use them together in two units to improve the stereo sound of our Xiaomi TV. And they also have Chromecast integrated to be able to send our favorite content through them, such as Atresplayer for example.

A speaker that at least in India comes at a very competitive price if we compare it with that of its competitors, about 40 euros to change. This is practically half the price of a standard Amazon Echo or Google Home, which is usually around 90 or 100 euros.

Thanks to the Apple Watch, Police Managed to Find a Woman Who was Kidnapped

Thanks to the Apple Watch, Police Managed to Find a Woman Who was Kidnapped

Currently, many electronic devices are equipped with GPS (Global Positioning System) technology. It also turns out to be able to help the police when looking for people who are missing or kidnapped, such as the incident that happened to a woman in Texas.

Based on information from News 4 San Antonio, the beginning of this incident occurred when a woman was arguing with a man named Adalberto Longoria. The debate was also witnessed by his son.

It is known that the woman’s child heard her mother’s voice screaming before she found her mother was not there with Longoria. As a result, the child tries to call his mother.

The mother apparently picked up the phone from her Apple Watch and informed her that she had been kidnapped by Longoria. Then the child tries to contact the police and ask for help.

Because the Apple Watch used by the woman was still active and the GPS feature was still on, the police immediately rushed to the location where the woman was kidnapped, namely in a parking lot near Hyatt city.

This is not the first time a kidnapping case has been rescued by electronic devices such as smartphones and smartwatches. That’s why activating the GPS feature while traveling will be useful because we can’t know what’s going on out there.

After waiting for a long time, iFixit has finally released the results of their teardown process to Apple’s latest AirPods Max headphones. The result of the teardown makes iFixit give a score of 6 out of 10 which is pretty good.

This is also the first AirPod device to score more than 0 because so far iFixit has provided an improvement score for the AirPods and AirPods Pro of 0 because the earbuds are difficult to put apart.

Coming back to the AirPods Max, iFixit says that almost all the components of the AirPods Max come with bolts so they only need to remove the bolts and components like the battery, motherboard, and speakers are easy to remove.

In addition, the earcup system that can be removed using magnets makes users not have to bother when they want to replace their dirty or damaged earcups.

Even iFixit is quite impressed with Apple where it turns out that the headband of the AirPods Max can be removed easily with the help of the SIM Ejector Tool alone.

Apple also deliberately made a port for the headband with a shape similar to the Lightning port which is usually found on the iPhone and iPad.

Perhaps because of its ease of repair, the price of Apple’s AirPods Max can be expensive. The reason is that the AirPods Max is sold for $550, where at that price, we can buy headphones from Sony like the WH-1000XM4 and there are still some leftovers.

The Google Assistant hits the Sense and Versa 3 smartwatches. With Fitbit OS 5.1

The Google Assistant goes to Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 smartwatches. The feature is introduced by the Fitbit OS 5.1 update. Previously, Amazon Alexa was made available for watches.

The Google Assistant is currently hitting Samsung Smart TVs. Meanwhile, the function is also provided to selected Fitbit smartwatches. This is done with the Fitbit OS 5.1 update that is now available. Versa 3 and Sense watches get it. Let’s see what the new update offers.

The Google Assistant available with the Fitbit OS 5.1 update gives you interesting possibilities on smartwatches. These include answering calls or dictating text messages that will then be sent to the recipient. Here, however, you must have a phone with you, because requests are processed directly on the smartphone.

Google Assistant with Fitbit OS 5.1 only on Verse 3 and Sense smartwatches

It is worth adding that the Google Assistant with the Fitbit OS 5.1 update was made available for only two smartwatches. These are mentioned in Verse 3 and Sense models. For comparison, the previously released Amazon Alexa hit Verse 2 and 3. For now, there is also no response option thanks to the built-in speaker. This functionality is to be added next year.
