Galaxy S9 Specs

Upcoming Samsung devices may make water bounce right off

Upcoming Samsung devices may make water bounce right off

By on September 27, 2016 at 4:55 PM.

If we can overlook the unmitigated disaster that is the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung has, by and large, had a pretty good year. The company’s S7 lineup proved to be extremely popular both with reviewers and consumers, and leaks surrounding next year’s Galaxy S8 are pretty intriguing.

As we highlighted earlier today, some rumors claim that the S8 will feature a 5.2-inch 4K display and will come jam-packed with a 3.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 6GB of RAM and more.

But the Samsung Galaxy S8 isn’t the only Samsung smartphone we’ve seen make waves in the rumor mill this week. According to a report from TechRadar, Samsung’s 2018 Galaxy S9 may take water resistance to the next level thanks to a recent deal the company recently inked with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), an R&D lab that falls under the purview of the U.S. Department of Energy.

Donald Trump Vs Hillary Clinton Debate

Watch Stephen Colbert skewer Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s debate performances

Watch Stephen Colbert skewer Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s debate performances

On account of all the media hype surrounding last night’s Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, CBS yesterday aired a live taping of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert so that Colbert could really dive into the circus-like atmosphere that underscored the entirety of yesterday’s debate.

Hitting the nail on the head, Colbert opined that the debate lived up to the hype and it didn’t take long for Colbert to start delivering a few laugh out loud zingers and ridiculous observations.

Best Wireless Router For Gaming

These two devices will give you the ultimate home Wi-Fi network

These two devices will give you the ultimate home Wi-Fi network

As much as some people might hate to admit it, slow home internet service isn’t always your ISP’s fault. In fact, your internet service provider probably supplies you with much faster download and upload speeds than you’re actually taking advantage of. What’s the problem? Some people insist on using cheap Wi-Fi routers — or, even worse, they use the built-in Wi-Fi on their cable company’s router — that can’t keep up with fast internet speeds.

Lucky for you if you fall into this category, Amazon has a big sale going on right now on two devices that will combine to give you the ultimate home wireless network. Check out the NETGEAR Nighthawk X4 Ultimate Gaming Router and NETGEAR Nighthawk X4 AC2200 WiFi Range Extender, which are both being discounted from now through the end of the day on October 7. Oh, and we’ve got a little bonus for you if you REALLY want to speed things up. More →

iPhone 7 Headphone Adapter

How not to lose that annoying little headphone adapter that came with your iPhone 7

By on September 27, 2016 at 3:04 PM.

How not to lose that annoying little headphone adapter that came with your iPhone 7

If you have an iPhone 7 or an iPhone 7 Plus, you’ve probably noticed by now that something is missing from this year’s iPhones that had been present on every single iPhone up until this point. That’s right, the standard 3.5mm headphone jack you used to plug your headphones and aux cables into is no more. Shocking, we know.

Okay, so Apple’s move to ditch the standard audio port didn’t come as much of a surprise following months of rumors suggesting that would be the case. Even still, there are some people out there who are very annoyed at Apple’s decision, regardless of how “courageous” it may (or may not) have been. But if you own or plan to purchase an iPhone 7 — or any iPhone in the future — it’s time to get over it. You can either use the Lightning headphones in the box, buy a new pair of Lightning headphones, buy wireless headphones, or use the headphone adapter that came in the box with your iPhone. If you decide to go with that last option, we’ll show you how to make sure that you don’t lose it. More →

DJI’s tiny new drone shoots 4K video and fits in your hand

DJI’s tiny new drone shoots 4K video and fits in your hand

Easy-to-fly drones that shoot 4K video are old news now. So, following electronics best practice, the next thing to happen is making them smaller. Much smaller.

That seems to have been the guiding principle behind the design of the DJI Mavic Pro, a brand-new drone from the best-known consumer drone maker. It shoots 4K video, streams live images back to the controller, and has nearly half an hour of battery life. Those are all specs on par with much bigger drones, but thanks to foldable rotors, the Mavic Pro will fit into a small backpack.

‘Safe’ Galaxy Note 7 explodes, burning owner (and Samsung)

Samsung is doing well at recalling and replacing millions of potentially explosive Galaxy Note 7 devices, but that recall could all be for nothing. According to a report, a theoretically safe Note 7, bought over the weekend in China, burst into flames and injured the owner. That’s not good.

Bloomberg Quint spoke to a Chinese man, 25-year-old Hui Renjie, who had a Note 7 delivered from an online retailer over the weekend. But according to Renjie, the device exploded on Monday morning, damaging his MacBook and burning two of his fingers.
