What in the world is going on over at Samsung in the wake of the Galaxy Fold delay ? The whole situation keeps refusing to normalize, and instead gets weirder nearly every day. The latest is that iFixit has decided to honor a Samsung request to pull its Galaxy Fold teardown off the internet, even though Samsung apparently didn’t ask iFixit to do so directly. This oddity follows AT&T’s seemingly arbitrary decision to email a potential ship date for the Galaxy Fold despite the fact that Samsung hasn’t officially set a new release date. By requesting that iFixit pull the teardown, Samsung is apparently willing to risk the Streisand effect when it comes to people clamoring to see the innards of its device. Here’s part of iFixit’s statement... C.

Intel has clarified that it bowed out of the mobile 5G marketplace earlier this month, and now we know why: according to CEO Bob Swan, the company had concluded that there just wasn’t money in the business after Apple and Qualcomm settled their ongoing dispute — a settlement which meant Qualcomm would provide modems to Apple once again. "In light of the announcement of Apple and Qualcomm, we assessed the prospects for us to make money while delivering this technology for smartphones and concluded at the time that we just didn’t see a path," commented Swan in an interview with The Wall Street Journal . Once Apple made up with Qualcomm, Intel bailed on mobile 5G. The news that Intel had exited the 5G modem business came just hours after...

Amazon revealed today that it’s working to offer free one-day shipping as the default for Amazon Prime customers, instead of the free two-day Prime shipping primarily offered today. “We’re currently working on evolving Prime two-day to Prime one-day,” says chief financial officer Brian Olsavsky during the company’s first quarter 2019 earnings call. The new free one-day shipping method should be different from today’s free same-day and free one-day shipping, which usually require you to order at least $35 worth of items. The free one-day shipping also won’t come at an additional cost to consumers, besides the required Prime membership subscription. “We’re already starting down this path,” explains Olsavsky. “We’ve expanded the number of...

The internet is full of spoilers, making it a dangerous place to hang around if you’re trying to steer clear of what happens in Avengers: Endgame, Game of Thrones , or any other TV shows, movies, or video games that you’re still catching up on. Even when you think you’ve got things under control, Google’s autocomplete feature has spoiled things before . URLs can contain spoilers , too. In addition, trolls can embed spoilers in unrelated content. When Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, the film’s biggest plot twist was hidden within a misleading video titled something like “LMAO funny Madden 16 glitches.” (Needless to say, there were no funny Madden glitches to be found.). Of course, the most logical suggestion for avoiding them is...

The New York attorney general’s office has opened an investigation into Facebook after it was discovered earlier this month that the company had the email contacts belonging to over 1.5 million people without their consent. "It is time Facebook is held accountable for how it handles consumers’ personal information," Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement.

Amazon wants to continue its dominance over e-commerce, but it can only grow so much. In its first quarter earnings posted today , Amazon revealed record-high profit, more than double what investors predicted, and revenue was in line with Wall Street expectations, at $59.7 billion. But the company is again entering a period of high spending that, coupled with its slow revenue growth, may prove an obstacle down the line. It’s clear Amazon is still an extremely profitable company, as the third most valuable corporation on the planet after Apple and Microsoft. But CEO Jeff Bezos is continuing to invest heavily in artificial intelligence, the smart home, and physical retail, bets that won’t pay off for quite some time. As a result, Amazon is...

Facebook is banning personality quiz apps, which have for years been able to collect and store a great deal of information about their users. The ban comes a year after the Cambridge Analytica scandal , where it came out that the data firm had acquired information on up to 87 million people through the quiz app “thisisyourdigitallife.”To be clear, personality quizzes themselves were not the problem here. While they offer an easy way for unscrupulous developers to gather masses of data — after all, they’re premised on handing over personal information — the problem was that Facebook allowed developers, for many years, to collect information on friends of friends and never thoroughly enforced policies to ensure that the data was kept...

Much has been made of the World Health Organization’s new recommendations that caregivers restrict the amount of time young kids stare at screens. But the guidelines are less about the risks of screen time itself, and more about the advantages of spending time doing pretty much anything else. The recommendations are broadly about physical activity and sleep for children under five years old, and are an attempt to create healthy habits during a critical developmental window. Among the recommendations for tummy time and active play, the WHO also spells out that between the ages of two and five, children should spend no more than an hour a day plopped in front of a screen. And children under the age of two shouldn’t engage in sedentary... Cont.

Battle royale video games are not really power fantasies, especially if you’re one of the majority of players on the losing end of a match. Being dropped onto an island with fellow scavengers and scrounging around for what little firearms and ammo you can get your hands on creates a tense, anything-can-happen atmosphere. You’re supposed to feel vulnerable all the time. That’s not the case in Fortnite ’s big Avengers: Endgame crossover event . The limited-time game mode is all about feeling overly powerful — like a superhero — to spectacular effect. Whether you’re on the side of humanity, wielding one of the many heroic weapons taken from the Marvel universe, or whether you’re part of Thanos’ army — with its jetpacks and energy weapons... Co.

AT&T and Verizon have revealed that upgrade rates have hit all-time lows for the two carriers, with fewer existing customers upgrading their devices, as noted by Bloomberg . The downward trend in upgrades isn’t exactly new: upgrade rates have been trending downward for years, but the record lows recorded by the two the largest carriers in the US paint a stark picture, both for AT&T and Verizon and hardware manufacturers like Apple and Samsung.

We’re approaching a weird weekend of pop culture grief. Thursday, April 25th, marks the release of Avengers: Endgame , the follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War , in which literally half the universe died. Just a few days later, on Sunday, April 28th, the latest episode of Game of Thrones will send the majority of the show’s surviving cast into an epic battle with the undead horde of White Walkers sweeping down from beyond the Wall. Both Endgame and Game of Thrones have something unusual in common: they’re installments of long-running, immensely popular franchises where the audience widely expects they’re about to see their favorite characters die. That’s rare in a cultural environment that thrives on endless sequels, prequels, spinoffs, and.

You can save $200 on Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones at the Google Store until 11:59PM PT on May 6th. Normally $799, the Pixel 3 is selling for $599 , while the Pixel 3 XL, which usually starts at $899, is down to $699 . You can save a bit more money on either if you have a phone to trade in: Google currently offers up to $610 back for the iPhone XS Max. The resale value of most other Android phones is pitifully small by comparison. Earlier this week, Google Fi ran a day-long $400-off price drop on both phones (as long as you also were signed up for Google Fi), so this sale isn’t quite as good. But there’s at least a bit of value in being able to activate one of these phones using any carrier right out of the box. If you’re thinking...

Apex Legends was a massive hit out of the gate , but since then, many players have complained about a lack of content updates, especially compared to the constantly changing Fortnite . Today, in a surprising reveal, executive producer Drew McCoy explained that this won’t necessarily be changing any time soon. “Our long-term goal is to ensure Apex Legends always feels alive and thriving, with a focus on quality of content over novelty or speed of release,” McCoy wrote in a blog post . “At the same time, we want to maintain our culture as a development team and avoid crunch that can quickly lead to burnout or worse.”“We want to maintain our culture and avoid crunch.”The news comes just a day after Polygon reported on the working conditions.

Fortnite creator Epic Games is facing a lawsuit from New York City-based saxophonist Leo Pellegrino, who claims the developer has used his likeness without permission when designing a saxophone dance in the game. The lawsuit was filed today in federal court for the eastern district of Pennsylvania. The emote, called “Phone It In,” lets players whip out the brass instrument and play a quick tune while dancing. Pellegrino, best known for his Brass House band Too Many Zooz, says his “trademark moves have become inseparable from his persona and his life story” and that Epic had not previously asked for permission to use his likeness or “his signature moves.”Pellegrino is represented by Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP, the same firm...

In the first week of April, a Japanese spacecraft blasted a small crater into an asteroid more than 180 million miles from Earth — and now we’ve finally got the first images of its explosive handy work. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, which operates the excavating spacecraft, released before and after pictures of the new crater site, showing a slight indentation in the rock that wasn’t there before. The new crater is the product of Hayabusa2, which has been hanging out around an asteroid named Ryugu since June of 2018. Hayabusa2 is supposed to return samples of Ryugu back to Earth, and so far, the spacecraft has successfully completed part of this mission. On February 21st, the spacecraft moved in close to Ryugu and shot a... Contin.

SpaceX has launched an investigation into what caused the company’s new passenger vehicle, the Crew Dragon, to explode during a test over the weekend , but it’s too early to know how the accident will affect schedules moving forward. Even before the accident occurred, SpaceX had a “large body of work” to complete before it could fly people on the capsule for the first time, according to a NASA advisory panel on safety that met today. Five days after the accident, details of what happened are still scarce. But it’s been confirmed that the explosion occurred while SpaceX was firing up some of the engines embedded within its Crew Dragon. The capsule is equipped with eight small thrusters known as SuperDraco engines, which will be crucial in...

As the recent documentary Horror Noire lays out , most early American horror films featuring black characters play very different for black audiences than for white ones. Traditionally, in American horror stories, people of color have been associated with a monstrous, vengeful, often magical Other that threatens white purity. As POC creators have entered the horror field to add new perspectives, though, innovative new narratives have flipped those tropes. In more recent stories, affluent white people are the sinister nightmare power that seeks to possess, corrupt, and control everyone else by stealing their bodies and maybe their souls. Most famously, that’s the plot of Jordan Peele’s hugely successful 2017 film Get Out . The same broad...
