Keyboard cover for Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ goes on sale tomorrow from Dutch online store

Remember that QWERTY keyboard case for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ that we showed you last week? The accessory might remind you (not in form, but in function) of Ryan Seacrest’s ill-fated TYPO, which was designed for the Apple iPhone. The cover offers a physical keyboard for those who find it frustrating to type on the Galaxy S6 edge+’s 5.7-inch screen.

While the Galaxy S6 edge+ won’t be announced until August 13th, a Dutch online store called Central Point has started offering the keyboard case on its website. Including VAT, the price of the accessory appears to be the equivalent of $63 …

IT Business Products : Solve for Tomorrow

Samsung launches $1 million educational initiative designed to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education and foster the development of sustainable innovation.

Students love technology. Teachers love feeling appreciated for their hard work and dedication.

Now, teachers across the United States can submit an application for a chance to participate in Samsung’s “Solve for Tomorrow” video competition. The program will reward the schools of winning teachers, and their students, with a variety of Samsung electronics, Microsoft and Adobe software, and DirecTV educational programming valued at more than $1 million. As part of Samsung’s Hope for Children initiative, this effort promotes math and science education designed to foster sustainable innovation.

Support for STEM Education

Recently, STEM education has become a national priority, as it is increasingly apparent that U.S. students are not advancing in math and science at the same pace as other countries. To address this urgent issue, Samsung, a leader in global technology, is devoted to being part of the solution.

“Samsung has achieved unprecedented success this year, and recognizes the importance of leveraging these accomplishments to encourage U.S. students to pursue studies and careers related to STEM,” said David Steel, EVP of Strategic Planning and Corporate Communications at Samsung Electronics America. “It is our goal to educate students and teachers on the importance of STEM, while providing them with the resources necessary to advance technology in schools and sustainable innovation in their communities. Samsung’s `Solve for Tomorrow’ allows us to take an active role to move closer toward a goal that is critical to America’s future.”

Inspiration Through Education

As a means of inspiring enthusiasm for STEM studies and improving the technology gap in classrooms, Samsung has invited 6th – 12th grade teachers to create a video with their students that answers the question: “How can science or math help improve the environment in your community?”

Through October 24th, teachers can complete an online application to be selected to participate in the video contest. To create videos responding to the contest question, fifty classroom respondents will receive free Samsung hardware and Adobe video editing software.

In January, 2011, Samsung and its partners will select the top 25 videos, all of whom will receive technology prizes (out of up to 500 submissions). That spring, the top five finalists will be invited to an event announcing the grand-prize winner at the Samsung Experience in New York City. A celebrity spokesperson will be involved in the final stages of the program.

A Team Effort

In addition, Samsung is partnering with The National Environmental Education Foundation, which works to raise awareness about the importance of environmental education, improving educational opportunities, and connecting community resources with schools. NEEF is a leading authority on environmental education and, in working with Samsung, will aim to help Samsung’s “Solve for Tomorrow” create a measurable impact on children’s ability to use STEM for solving practical environmental problems.

Since its inception in 2004, Samsung’s Hope for Children and its partners have donated more than $10 million in technology and other prizes to over 300 winning U.S. schools. This year’s partners include Microsoft, DirectTV, Adobe, and the National Environmental Education Foundation.

Student Kaylynn Hobson and Principal Colter Barnes of Kokhanok School in Kokhanok, Alaska, provided insight into their project and life in Kokhanok, which is a fly-in-only village of 300 people. The students investigated the Spruce Bark Beetle epidemic, which is attributed to global warming and is devastating their local forests. Using algebraic equations, they determined there were 7 million dead trees that needed to be removed from the forests to stop the epidemic. They also recommended environmentally friendly uses of the dead wood, including using it to build homes, heat homes and power homes through the use of Thermal Electric Generators.

Student Jonathan Jackson and Principal Angie Pepin from the South Shore Charter Public School in Norwell, Massachusetts, were invited to the stage to discuss the subject of their video. The school has 535 students and 85 faculty members from 35 towns—with the farthest 37 miles away. After calculating the CO2 emissions of the commuters, the students recognized the need to reduce their carbon footprint. Their solution was the “veggie van,” which runs on vegetable oil. The students have proposed purchasing a new van to further develop their shuttle system.

The Environmental Science class at the Patchogue Medford High School in Medford, New York, conducted a study about the water in their community. The town of Patchogue decided to expand their water treatment plant to reduce the nitrates and phosphates that were flowing into the bay and killing shellfish in the area. The mayor asked the students to study how the water changed following the completion of the water plant. “I’m a firm believer in learning from experience,” said teacher Bob Borowski, pictured with student representative Saad Amer. “But in order to do that, you need the technology to bring out into the field.”

The students of Wheeling High School in Wheeling, Illinois, represented by student Preston Harvey and Principal Dr. Lazaro Lopez, collected exhaust from a tail pipe then performed experiments to determine the amount of carbon the average driver emits. They recognized the relationship between carbon emissions and global warming, and suggested alternative forms of transportation to help save the planet from global warming. “It’s projects like these that have students engaged and feel connected to what they’re going to be doing when they leave school,” said Lopez.

Student Ben Whitenack and teacher Mike Lampert from West Salem High School in Salem, Oregon, discussed how the students from their school recognized that hydro-electric energy was killing salmon through dams as they traveled up the river. The students resolved to save the salmon by promoting eco-friendly energy alternatives to the dams and partnered with a local elementary school to study the water quality necessary for the salmon to survive. In addition, the students built and raced solar-powered cars to learn about solar energy (Whitenack is pictured above with one of the cars he brought along) and engineered wind turbines to learn about wind energy.

Watchers, carers, and administrators: the smart homes of tomorrow

How smart should a smart home be before it's worthy of the name? To date, perhaps the term has been too readily applied to homes that are merely high-tech. Automated systems, remote control of appliances from mobile devices, TV and phone over IP—these are all welcome breakthroughs. These technologies are almost synonymous with the smart home and so-called intelligent buildings in general, but …
