Samsung launches two laptops that look set to compete with the MacBook Pro

Samsung launches two laptops that look set to compete with the MacBook Pro On Sunday, Samsung announced the Notebook 7 and Notebook 7 Force, a pair of laptops that are being compared to Apple's MacBook Pro lineup right down to the keyboard font used. Just before the annual Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, Samsung revealed a range that looks designed to go head to head with Apple's MacBook Pro range -- at least from the outside. Like the Apple version, the Samsung Notebook 7 comes in 13-inch and 15-inch flavors; the Notebook 7 Force is only available as a 15-inch model. The former has diamond-cut edges like those of the MacBook, as well as a comparative display with bezels nearly as narrow.

Apple CEO Tim Cook didn't just try to inspire Stanford University graduates with his commencement speech on Sunday. He also took a few shots at Silicon Valley.

Cook's speech called out Silicon Valley, which he says traces its roots back to Stanford, for taking credit without accepting responsibility. He brought up data breaches, privacy violations and false promises of miracles. Although the Apple CEO didn't name specific companies, he did have a term to what these businesses are producing.

"It feels a bit crazy that anyone should have to say this, but if you've built a chaos factory, you can't dodge responsibility for the chaos," Cook said. "Taking responsibility means having the courage to think things through."

Apple CEO Tim Cook had a few words of wisdom for Stanford ' s 2019 graduating class. During his commencement speech at Stanford University on Sunday Without naming any specific companies, Cook threw shade at Silicon Valley for thinking "good intensions excuse away horrible outcomes."

He continued on about the chilling effect of digital surveillance.

"In a world without digital privacy, even if you have done nothing wrong other than think differently, you begin to censor yourself," he said. "Not entirely at first. Just a little, bit by bit. To risk less, to hope less, to imagine less, to dare less, to create less, to try less, to talk less, to think less."

Privacy has been a focus at Apple in recent years. At its annual Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this month, the company revealed a new security feature called Sign In with Apple that will let users provide their Apple ID instead of an email address as a way to keep their personal information safe and prevent them from being tracked.

Some of the companies founded by Stanford graduates include Google, WhatsApp, YouTube, Intel , Netflix, Instagram, LinkedIn and Yahoo.

Apple didn't immediately reply to a request for additional comment.
