Samsung takes a dig at Apple's $19 cleaning cloth with new offer

The promotion is currently live only in Germany.

What you need to know

  • Samsung is running a new promotion in Germany that takes a jab at Apple's $19 cleaning cloth.
  • The company is giving away a free cleaning cloth to the first 1,000 people who sign up for the offer.
  • It remains to be seen if Samsung will expand the offer to other countries in the future.

Apple unveiled a ton of new products at its "Unleashed" event last month, including MacBook Pro models with M1 Pro and M1 Max processors. It also announced a $19 cleaning cloth to clean your Apple products.

Samsung has now launched a new promotion that takes aim at Apple's cleaning cloth. As spotted by the folks at Galaxy Club, the promotion is now live in the Samsung Members app in Germany. The first 1,000 users who sign up for the offer will receive a free cleaning cloth for their Galaxy phone.

Samsung says the "must-have" accessory measures 20 x 20cm in size, which makes it slightly larger in size than Apple's cleaning cloth. Just like any other microfiber cloth, you can also use the Samsung cleaning cloth to clean your PC monitor or tablet.

The promotion appears to be available only in Germany right now, and it isn't clear if Samsung plans to offer its cleaning cloth to users in other countries as well.

This isn't the first time that Samsung has taken a dig at Apple. Back in 2017, the company poked fun at the iPhone X's notch. It also made fun of Apple for removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from iPhones. However, just months later, Samsung released the Galaxy Note 10 series without a headphone jack.

Samsung had even mocked Apple last year for selling the iPhone 12 series without a charger in the box. It later deleted those posts and decided not to include chargers with its best Android phones to cut costs and also "help the environment."

How to get the Microsoft experience on a Chromebook

Microsoft's dedication to Android translates to a great Chrome OS experience, too. Once upon a time, to get the best experience for Microsoft services, you needed to buy a Windows laptop . If you were on a budget laptop with lower specs, though, performance was slow, all tasks were tedious, and your productivity suffered. These days, though, the best Chromebooks offer excellent performance and less maintenance at lower price points.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones .

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
