SAMSUNG's rumoured foldable Galaxy X smartphone is at the centre of a massive leak that reveals its potential release date. The bendy device could be unveiled in February of next year, according to South Korea's financial newspaper The Bell. If accurate, that implies the next-generation handset will take the stage at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 trade show. It would also also see the Galaxy X beat Apple's rumoured foldable iPhone to market. The report gives us some juicy new details about the sci-fi smartphone, which was apparently shown off to the tech giant's partners at CES in January. That device (which may have been a concept rather than the final product) had a fold-in design with three 3.5-inch OLED displays. One of those screens is found on the outside of the handset, with two displays on the inside. The insane origami-style phone folds together to form a 7-inch screen at the front, claims the report – although it may be between 6 or 7-inches if we take … [Read more...] about Samsung’s foldable Galaxy X smartphone release date REVEALED?

ASIDE from being a game of the year contender, GOD OF WAR is also crushing it on the sales charts. Released April 20, it sold 3.1million units in just three days to become the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive ever, according to Sony. Comparably, the current best-selling PS4 title of all time is Uncharted 4, with 2.7 million copies sold in its first week and 8.7 million in total sales. In second place on the all-time PS4 sales list is Horizon: Zero Dawn, wich has flogged 7.6 million games since its release in 2017. But God of War's stellar start could see it leapfrog both those excellent exclusives to the top of the leaderboard. The latest instalment in the action-adventure series, God of War shifts its backdrop from ancient Greece and into Norse mythology. That, of course, brings with it an exciting new legion of creatures, monsters and raging deities for players to defeat. But while the blistering action remains, the storyline is more sensitive this time round, featuring a … [Read more...] about God of War is officially the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive game of all time after shifting 3.1million copies in three days
A DRONE capable of remaining in the sky for an entire YEAR at a time is being developed by British firms. The solar-powered craft will be used for surveillance and to provide communications in remote areas. Described as a High Altitude, Long Endurance unmanned aerial vehicle, it offers a significantly cheaper alternative to conventional satellite technology. A wingspan of 35 metres and a weight of just 150kg allows it to operate at high altitudes for extensive periods of time. It harnesses the sun’s rays during the day to charge a battery that will allow it to operate overnight. Known as PHASA-35 (standing for Persistent High Altitude Solar Aircraft), it’s a collaboration between two British firms - BAE Systems and Prismatic. It uses proven, long-life battery technology and ultra-lightweight solar cells to potentially maintain flight for up to 12 months. Its first test flights are expected next year after a quarter scale model completed a successful maiden flight last year. … [Read more...] about A drone capable of remaining in the sky for an entire YEAR is being developed by British firms
Jamie Dimon is arguably the best-known banker in the U.S. He's been front and center for many of the major financial events of the last two decades, among them the financial crisis of 2008. He had taken the helm at JP Morgan Chase just four years prior. Described by The New York Times as "America's Least-Hated Banker" in 2010, which may be damning with faint praise, Dimon has emerged relatively unscathed, even as his company paid a $13 billion fine for its part in the 2008 crash. Dimon sat down with CBS News' Jeff Glor for a wide-ranging interview on Wednesday, as JP Morgan Chase prepared to launch 70 brand new locations in the Washington, D.C. area, which the company is touting as a major jobs achievement. It comes in a year where tax reform is seen by many as having handed a gift to the executive class in America. How does Dimon see it? JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon says recession is coming, but not soon "I don't think it's gone to executives, per se," said Dimon "Over … [Read more...] about Jamie Dimon: “I don’t think I’m suited” to the presidency

This is unsettling. The help is getting surly. We were in Brooklyn heading to a favorite Mexican dive when a pal, Demetri, asked about a movie we’d seen recently. My wife, Wink, happened to be using the voice recognition system on her phone at the moment, and suddenly came a stern rebuke along these lines: “There’s no need to talk to me like that.” Demetri, startled, mumbled a good-natured apology, but the voice evidently was too miffed to reply. Why an inquiry about “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” prompted disapproval, we’ll never know. A modern mystery, one of many, and another reminder of how easy it is to get in trouble. A short while later, news stories appeared regarding Alexa, the voice inside Amazon’s Echo personal assistant. Users claimed Alexa had been laughing at them for no reason. “It was really creepy,” tweeted one. “We unplugged her,” reported another. The tech geniuses at Amazon said a … [Read more...] about Is it smart to have artificial intelligence?

If you squint a little in the direction of the horizon, you might see spring, or hope, or whatever distant promise keeps you going. 2018 is still trudging into high gear but it's already exhausting, and as usual, we turn to our screens. Without the Olympics to unite the country and world, we're back to much-needed news breaks that favor streaming instead. Here's what you can watch on Hulu in March. SEE ALSO: 10 TV shows we can't wait to see in 2018 Top pick: Dirty Dancing It's only streaming for a month, so don't miss your chance to watch the 1987 classic over and over during March. You may think "Hey, didn't they remake this for TV last year?" and you'd be right, but you'd have your finger on the trigger of a very specific film/TV fan's worst trauma, so the right thing to do would be to dismiss the thought and start this one again from the beginning. Relish Johnny and Baby's illicit and undeniable attraction and the simple chemistry that brings them together. For all of … [Read more...] about What to watch on Hulu in March
I saw Black Panther twice over the holiday weekend and both times times I was asked by the (in one instance white) people I saw it with what I thought. The first time I took a long pause, looked off into the distance for a bit, and eventually said something like I respected how relatively radical it got away with being despite ultimately adhering to a mainstream superhero movie template. The second time, I had polished that academic thesis of a statement down to the much friendlier, “Black Panther is like Zootopia but better.” Black Panther is a fantastic, deceptively layered film that reveals itself more and more to you over time, the exact opposite of basically every other Marvel movie. And because of that thematic depth intertwined with the car chases and armored rhino brawls, there’s already been an embarrassment of riches when it comes to written criticism for the film. From our own review here on Geek.com to this nuanced take from Film Crit Hulk to the … [Read more...] about Black Panther is Mainstream, and That’s Okay!
hifiduino The LG V20 isn’t due to launch until tomorrow, but the company has been busy tantalising us with some of the phone’s upcoming features. Most intriguingly is the inclusion of the first ever “Quad” DAC packed into a smartphone. The term has led to a fair bit of confusion, with some wondering if LG is counting the number of outputs, or if there’s multiple DACs for different audio paths. I assure you that this isn’t the case, but a proper explanation is far more complicated. Of course, that’s what I’m here for. We are pretty certain that the LG V20 will be using the latest ES9218 component from ESS Technologies. The company’s press page features LG’s V20 statement, followed a few days later by a release about the company’s new ES9218 Quad DAC for mobile products. A pretty easy connection to make. Delving into the press release reveals that the ES9218 is a 32-bit 394kHz and DSD512 capable … [Read more...] about What is the LG V20’s “Quad DAC” and how does it affect audio quality?
