Home / News / See some Galaxy S9 super slow-mo videos here! Between the adjustable aperture and the option to record “super” slow-motion videos, it’s hard to say which of the two Galaxy S9 camera features Samsung is prouder of. For the regular consumer, slow-motion videos make for better marketing material, and Samsung has certainly not been shy about touting how its new flagships can take awesome slow-mo clips. For those who haven’t been keeping up, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ can take slow-motion videos at 960 frames per second – that’s the slowest you can go on any smartphone out there with a motion detection feature that automatically captures slow-mo clips every time there’s movement in the frame.Galaxy S9 super slow-mo videosThat’s not all.

It’s easy to look at the new Galaxy S9 and S9+ and say Samsung didn’t even try this year, but that couldn’t be more wrong. Yes, the glass-and-metal Android sandwiches are virtually identical to last year's Galaxy S8 and S8+, right down to the same screen sizes and rounded corners. But take a closer look and you’ll see everything — especially the camera — has changed for the better, even if the design is still essentially the same. SEE ALSO: The world of Android is about to change in a big way Stale-looking or not, the S9 and S9+ are still distinctly Samsung phones. They’re iconic in the way iPhones are, and I dig it. Once again, Samsung is launching its flagship phone in two screen sizes. The S9 has a 5.8-inch display and the S9+ has a larger 6.2-inch screen. Both models sport 18.5:9 aspect ratio Super AMOLED displays and have the same 2,960 x 1,440 resolution.

February 23, 2018 - Written By Daniel Golightly Following the announcement of C-V2X (Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything) trials conducted between six different companies back in January, Qualcomm has taken to its official newsroom blog to discuss its role in pushing vehicle-to-everything into the mainstream. More directly, the company says it is working with industry leaders ranging from Tier-1 suppliers and cellular module manufacturers to software solution providers and automakers to promote the commercial viability of V2X solutions. Moreover, bolstered by its current run of testing and validations trials, the company revealed that it plans to see its chipset implemented in both production vehicles and roadside infrastructure beginning in 2019. Tests are being operated in Germany, France, Korea, China, Japan, and the U.S. According to the company, its chipset has been proven to be the most cost-effective solution to date through analysis conducted by P3 North America.

Security researcher Troy Hunt recently launched a new service called Pwned Passwords that makes it easy to see if your passwords have been leaked on the Internet. The team over at AgileBits Inc. liked the idea so much that they’ve created a proof of concept that integrates the service into their popular password manager, 1Password. The proof of concept is available right now for anyone with a 1Password membership. To give it a whirl, first sign into your 1Password account, then click Open Vault. From there, you’ll want to enter the following sequence – Shift-Control-Option-C (or Shift+Ctrl+Alt+C on Windows) – to unlock the proof of concept. It’s worth noting that even if you get a positive hit on a password, it doesn’t necessarily mean the associated account was breached. It’s possible that someone else could have been using the same password which of course indicates that your password wasn’t very strong. Also of note is the fact that … [Read more...] about 1Password can now check to see if your passwords have been leaked online
Excited for Black Panther? So are we. Which is why we're rolling out obsessive coverage with Black Panther Week. The overwhelming feeling most experienced after leaving Black Panther was: we want more. Now. None of us wanted to ever leave Wakanda — and we never have to in our imaginations.

February 21, 2018 - Written By Daniel Golightly That testing of 5G networks is ramping up is hardly news but, thanks to a new report and infographic from VIAVI Solutions, getting some perspective on that is now much easier. The increase in testing activity has jumped almost three-fold from last year, with as many as 72 separate companies now testing the technology in preparation for its launch. 28 of those companies are reportedly in field trials, while the same number have announced plans to begin field trials. While 5G is expected to be a serious boost to mobile data speeds, a few outliers in the report have claimed speeds in excess of 70Gbps. Meanwhile, the vast majority of the companies are reporting test speeds of between 10Gbps and 25Gbps – including the U.S. carriers, which all fell between 10Gbps and 12Gbps. Beyond that, as many as fourteen network equipment manufacturers are said to be involved in field trials as well. Testing is occurring across a huge range of … [Read more...] about VIAVI Report Details Massive Growth In 5G Preparations
There has been a ‘sharp increase’ in the threat of credential abuse in recent months, putting companies and individuals alike at risk of being hacked, new research has claimed. A report by Akamai Technologies analysing more than 7.3 trillion bot requests per month found that in the last three months of 2017, the attacks made up more than 40 per cent of malicious login attempts. The report says that hackers are looking to add enterprise systems as a part of their botnet by exploiting remote code execution vulnerabilities in enterprise-level software. “A key motive of attackers has always been financial profit. In the past few years, we have seen adversaries move to more direct methods to achieve that goal such as ransomware,” said Martin McKeay, senior security advocate and senior editor, State of the Internet / Security Report. “Crypto mining offers attackers the most direct avenue to monetise efforts by putting money immediately into their … [Read more...] about 2017 sees huge increase in bot traffic and crime
