Samsung's Bixby 'Marketplace' is finally out, but it's a barren wasteland

Today, Samsung has revealed its new Bixby Marketplace, which aims to provide "Capsules," akin to Alexa Skills, that better expand the functionality of the company's frequently lambasted voice assistant.

All the way back on June 29th, 2009, a little company named Samsung released a phone just called Galaxy (with no "S") running Google's brand new Android operating system.

Samsung expands SmartThings ecosystem with affordable smart camera, plug, and bulb

Although Samsung has been in the smart home game for a few years now with its SmartThings ecosystem, its lineup has mostly relied on being a central home automation hub that integrates with third-party devices like plugs and lights to automate your home. Until today, the majority of the brand's IoT products were sensors that would act as triggers, but the company is now expanding it with a smart camera, plug, and bulb, which give it a complete range of smart home products.

Save up to $300 when purchasing an unlocked Galaxy S10e, S10, or S10+ from Best Buy

Earlier this month we reported Samsung was offering $100 off on most of the S10 lineup. Unfortunately, this deal wasn't available on the least expensive 128GB variants, which meant the 128GB S10e was the same price as the 256GB version at some retailers. However, the brand just extended the markdown to all handsets, and other retailers are even adding some discounts of their own, letting you save up to $300 on a new unlocked phone.

Back in April, the company already announced that the S7 and S7 edge would receive updates on a quarterly basis rather than monthly, but it's just downgraded the update frequency once again to "other regular."
