As of January 29th, Comcast’s broadband market share is now greater than 50%. More →

Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge expected to include Gear VR support

Against all odds, the Gear VR turned out to be an incredibly cool accessory.

SamMobile’s sources say that both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S Edge will support the virtual reality display when they launch later this year. More →
