New study suggests Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is more breakable than the iPhone 5s

The Galaxy S5 can do plenty of things that the iPhone can’t, but even with IP67 certification, Samsung still hasn’t built a more durable phone than the iPhone 5s. The Associated Press shares the latest results from SquareTrade’s durability tests, which put the iPhone 5s just half a point ahead of the brand new Galaxy S5. According to SquareTrade, the relative small size of the iPhone 5s gives it an edge over the 5-inch Android phones which have begun flooding the market. An iPhone owner is simply less likely to drop his or her phone. More →

For those who don’t know, Google X is Google’s top-secret lab where teams of engineers are tasked with thinking way, way, way outside the box for solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. Not coincidentally, many of these projects also have the potential to boost Google’s bottom line but there’s certainly no guarantee they’ll do so. In fact, as a new profile of Google X in FastCompany makes clear, there’s a very good chance they’ll crash and burn. More →
