Fresh leak shows us just how ridiculously hot the Galaxy Note 7 is going to be
This phone seriously can't get here soon enough...
Movie critics have a difficult job. Remaining objective and viewing a film through the target audience’s eyes is no easy task, because we all inherently have biases when it comes to matters of opinion. In the case of big-budget blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, critics by and large seem to have failed pretty miserably. The movie was panned by pros, earning it an abysmal 27% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. While their terrible reviews may very well have impacted audience sentiment, they did precious little to actually dissuade anyone from seeing the movie — it racked up nearly $873 million globally at the box office, making it the 46th highest grossing film in history.
And speaking of history… history is now repeating itself and giving us another gentle reminder that movie critics are pretty much useless. More →
There have been many Galaxy Note 7 leaks revealing everything we could possibly want to know about the handset ahead of its upcoming announcement. Yet a fresh leak brings us the best look we’ve had so far at the new smartphone, and the accompanying report shares more details about its launch.
It seemed as though this day would never come, but it has: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said something so remarkably stupid that he actually had to pretend he wasn’t being serious at the time.
The run up to the 2016 presidential election in November will go down as one of the most bizarre and, quite frankly, sad times in the recent history of American politics. No matter who wins come November, we all lose. Of course, there’s losing and then there’s losing. And speaking of losing, an interesting series of events unfolded this week that forced Trump to finally walk back one of his ridiculous comments — something we really never thought we would see.

Congratulations, you’ve cut the cord. Your monthly expenses just got slashed big time, leaving you with an extra $1,200 in your pocket each year, minimum. Of course now comes the task of ensuring that you’ve got plenty of content available on all the screens in your house. Set-top boxes are great and smart TV’s have apps like Netflix and Hulu available, but there are a million other sources of content that you won’t be able to access on a smart TV or a device like the Apple TV.
Check out the Actiontec My Wireless TV WiFi / HDMI Multi-Room Wireless HD Video Kit, which lets you set up a media server anywhere in your home and beam high-quality 1080p video straight to any TV. More →
If you’re looking for fully encrypted chat apps, then WhatsApp is one app to consider. Installed by more than one billion users, the app offers end-to-end encryption, which means that nobody can access your chats and calls history without having access to your device. However, a security researcher discovered that WhatsApp doesn’t protect your privacy as good when it comes to deleted chats or chats that were backed up. While that sounds like a bad thing, meaning that anyone could theoretically access them (again, physical access to your device is still needed), you shouldn’t freak out about it just yet. More →

Something incredible happened last week during the Republican National Convention. No, it wasn’t when Ben Carson tried to convince America that Hillary Clinton was in league with Lucifer. It also wasn’t when “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” blasted through the Quicken Loans Arena following Trump’s acceptance speech, as an absurd number of balloons tumbled from the sky.
The most celebrated moment of last week was the return of “Stephen Colbert.”
Most Galaxy Note 7 rumors so far have indicated that Samsung is going to launch a single phablet version, and when it comes to design, it won’t be a flat-screen model. Reports claimed that Samsung is only looking to sell a Galaxy Note 7 edge model this year which would feature a dual edge display, just like the Galaxy S7 edge. However, more recent leaks suggested that a flat Galaxy Note 7 might be in the works, or that Samsung at least considered one.
A brand new report, however, says that the phone will have a dual edge screen, but it’ll be a “barely-curved” display. More →
Remember kids, you shouldn’t try everything you see on TV at home, no matter how cool it sounds. That’s especially true if you’ve just hit the jackpot and won $3 million in a lottery. More →
In an interesting but not altogether surprising turn of events, Apple is reportedly recalibrating the focus and underlying goal of its long-rumored car initiative. According to a new report from Bloomberg, the primary focus of Apple’s car-oriented R&D will now center on developing advanced software capable of powering self-driving cars of the future. In turn, Apple will divert some attention away from its original goal of developing and manufacturing a branded car of its own.
To help push things along, the report adds that Apple recently tapped Dan Dodge to join Project Titan, the not-so-secretive name of the company’s automotive team. While not a household name, Dodge represents an intriguing and exciting hire for Apple. Prior to signing up to work at 1 Infinite Loop, Dodge served as the top dog within BlackBerry’s automotive software division. And before that, Dodge served as both the founder and CEO of QNX, a company that BlackBerry acquired outright a few years ago.

T-Mobile has the cheapest prices and best perks in the industry, and certainly the most sweary executive. But for one of the things that matters most to customers — good customer care — AT&T actually pips the “Uncarrier” to the flag.
The latest edition of the J.D. Power satisfaction survey ranks AT&T as the network with the best overall customer care experience. T-Mobile finishes second, with Verizon and Sprint rounding out the best of the rest.
