Samsung had sold around 36 million units of Galaxy S10 series phones last year. With sales off to a disappointing start, it now looks highly unlikely that the company will be able to achieve its 32 million sales target for the Galaxy S20 series. In addition to the coronavirus pandemic, the high pricing of the Galaxy S20 series phones and reduced subsidies from carriers have also impacted sales. … [Read more...] about Samsung is reportedly seeing ‘very disappointing’ sales of Galaxy S20 series phones

NEW DELHI: Tech giant Microsoft has partnered with Google in order to help web developers get their Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) into the Play Store. As reported by Thurrot, the apps created using Microsoft’s PWABuilder tool will now use Google’s Bubblewrap utility and library to generate and sign Google Play Store packages from PWAs. Judah Gabriel Himango from Microsoft said, “We’re glad to announce a new collaboration between Microsoft and Google for the benefit of the web developer community. Microsoft’s PWABuilder and Google’s Bubblewrap are now working together to help developers publish PWAs in the Google Play Store.” The PWAs use emerging web browser APIs and features along with traditional progressive enhancement strategy.

The report further adds that both companies have made interesting progress in … [Read more...] about Microsoft and Google come together to enhance their app libraries
Tasha: Above all else, I’d like to see them veer away from the prequel plans. The MCU has so much momentum because it’s always moving forward. We’re never leaping back in time to fill in the blanks on how stories began after we’ve learned how they end. (The upcoming Captain Marvel will be a bit of an exception to that rule, but it’ll also introduce important new characters to the continuity. We’ll see whether fans take that bait.) The gripe I’ve heard over and over about Solo, in various ways, is that we know how Han Solo’s story ends — we don’t necessarily need every significant moment of his life filled in like a checklist. I don’t entirely ascribe to that philosophy myself — I mostly enjoyed Solo, and especially his first meeting with Chewbacca, and the process of that relationship building. But so often, these prequels are about laboriously explaining things the fans filled in for themselves decades ago, and … [Read more...] about Question Club: Where should Star Wars go after Solo’s box office disappointment?

From its Silicon Valley-like campus near Mumbai, Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani's Jio telecom carrier is emerging as a winner from changes in the way Indian consumers plug into a digital economy made more urgent by the coronavirus pandemic. For Indian shoppers who prefer to order online, it is launching a grocery ordering service with Facebook Inc's popular WhatsApp messaging. For Bollywood fans who would prefer to avoid a crowded theater, it is readying same-day-release on the Jio platform. Those plans had been in the making for months, but the pandemic has given them a shot in the arm. India's 10-week lockdown has also led to a surge in demand for data, boosting Jio's phone and broadband offerings. And, over the past six weeks, the digital business of Ambani's Reliance Industries Ltd, known as Jio Platforms, raised a striking $10 billion from global investors. The investments, including $5.7 billion from Facebook and money from private equity firms Silver Lake, Vista Equity … [Read more...] about Amid pandemic, investors bet on Reliance Jio and its giant-killer playbook
