  1. Business Opportunity in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that I believe is guaranteed to be as challenging and exciting as CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    It is my hope that one day Ruvol may surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It is for this very reason that the great Bobby Fischer introduced his so-called “Fischer Random Chess,” where the starting position of the pieces is “randomized” to make the memorization of openings impracticable. Fortunately, it is also for this reason that I invented Ruvol where “every game” has been calculated to be a challenging one to play.

    HOW IS RUVOL PLAYED and HOW YOU CAN MONETIZE IT?

    I detailed everything in my YouTube video. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcqth0m3-R0

    BIG MONEY POTENTIAL IN RUVOL!

    It is worthwhile to note that the people who play chess will be the same people who will play Ruvol. In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. Even just a small percentage of these 800 million is good enough to earn big money from Ruvol either as an ONLINE GAME BUSINESS or as a PHYSICAL PRODUCT DISTRIBUTOR.

    Thanks and God bless!

  2. Worked fine for a few months and then an update rendered this smart display into useless pile of garbage. Sometimes it won't detect the hot word, at other times it will be listening for no apparent reason. The overall sucess rate is at about 30-50% now – waaaaay below industry averages and totally unaceptable. Unless you're right next to the device, yelling at the top of your lungs – forget it.

    To add to the frustration, both Lenovo and Google support have been extremely unhelpful. I have been sending feedback through the device itself for months now – not a peep back. Numerous reports via the google home app – silence. Posts here in the Lenovo forum – just as useful.

    Bottom line – I cannot recommend this device unless you love the sweet pain and frustration it has to offer. Avoid like the plague!

  3. These things are a waste of money. I mean how many people are really going to watch Youtube TV on this for any length of time let alone any videos or music when you have so many other options to play back content on better outputs with video and sound? You can Chromecast practically anything from a basic GA to a TV. All I see here is a glorified face chat device and something a person MIGHT find useful for culling recipes in a kitchen but neither is a necessity for the cost.

  4. Thanks for the video. By the way, most will not care about it matching the room decor. Like who cares about that! It’s function over form. Also, dump the super hero stuff. You are an adult now.

  5. Didn't take long for retailers to start marking these to clearance. I got my 10" at my local Walmart for $90. Worth it at that price IMO.

  6. Adding the mini speakers and lightbulbs is complicated.  They didn't pair.  I'll probably take the speakers and bulbs back and get my money back.  Very disappointed in the accessories for the Lenovo Smart Display.  I bought 2 for Christmas.  I can only imagine the problems with trying to setup a thermostat or doorbell camera accessories.  It's nothing more than an expensive unit to check recipes, watch YouTube videos, set timers and alarm clock.

  7. Lol bass ..: Bro just go get a subwoofer if you want the Punch , and if you don’t like bamboo look in the back paint it or put some lights to match your room ambiance 😉😂🤣🤣

  8. The downside to this smart display and the JBL display is that Google stated there will be features that won't be released/made available to them. Guess they're saving those features for the Google Home Hub. The downside to the forthcoming Google Home Hub is apparently it doesn't have a camera, (will find out for sure next week) so video calling is out. Downsides on both sides…

  9. Awesome Review, got mine, and I love it. Love the camera shutter feature the most, this way I don't have to cover my cameras using post-its lol!

  10. Love this. Bought the 8" and the 10". Super simple to setup and the daily routines are awesome. Video calls work great and change the dynamic when calling love ones. Connects to Spotify and Youtube. Great home assistant!

  11. I love how they added the mic and camera shutter. I bought this, and probably one of the best gadget I've bought aside from my phone. I used to cover all my cameras with post-its but I guess there's no need to do that for this.
