Samsung’s Galaxy S6 smartphone is expected to feature a new design and improved build quality, some of the aspects that were criticized in preceding Galaxy S models. While the South Korean company has yet to announce the handset, Samsung did tease a new design direction for its “innovative” upcoming flagship, saying after its recent quarterly earnings report that future handsets will be made using new materials.
Samsung’s holiday quarter wasn’t as devastating as the previous quarter, which saw the company’s profit plummet 60% on-year, but the company’s fourth-quarter report still showed steep declines in profit and revenue as Samsung continues its struggle to steady the ship.

While Gronk is a gregarious, hard-partying lug, Lynch is often hilariously unfriendly during media interviews and will often respond with a single sentence to every question he gets asked.

Tennis legend Novak Djokovic has stared down Federer and Nadal… but he’s never faced a foe quite as fearsome as this. YouTube user timtimfed has created a hilarious video in which a digital Vietnam-era M1 Abrams tank is edited in with footage of Djokovic playing a match at the Australian Open.
