It should have been Samsung’s glorious achievement, being the first to make the foldable dreams real.But whether it was due to hubris, haste, or truly inescapable limitations, the Galaxy Fold has turned out to be quite a nightmare for the manufacturer.The Galaxy Fold is still coming to the brave souls who pre-ordered the $2,000 prototype but they’ll have to wait more than a month to get it.It could have been worse.Samsung could have shipped the Galaxy Fold to consumers before the problems started to pop up.It may not be as life-threatening as the Galaxy Note 7 but, given the money involved, it would be just as scandalous.

This document shows statistics on crimes reported to the FBI, as well as total crimes committed on the internet in the calendar year 2018.This year saw nearly twice the amount of estimated total financial loss through the year VS 2017, easily the biggest jump since tracking these statistics began.The amount of complaints received by the IC3 over this last half-decade of reporting seems to be going up rather slowly – but certainly not dropping off at any point.It might just be that people don’t know to call the FBI’s IC3 when they’re the victim of internet theft.The latter option tracks with findings throughout the report.Many modern scams still use email

Every Roku player comes with a Roku remote that should already be paired to work properly right out of the box.To pair the remote with your Roku player, restart the Roku player, then press and hold the reset button in the remote's battery compartment for at least 3 seconds.Roku players — both streaming boxes and streaming sticks - turn your ordinary television into a smart TV.In other words, they let you stream content from hundreds or even thousands of online channels on your television.Instead of watching Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and the like on your phone or tablet, you can sit on the sofa and enjoy those channels on your TV.And while your Roku player comes with a small remote control that almost always automatically works properly right out of the box, there are situations in which that might not be the case.

Giz UK's Good Guy of the Day Award goes to Transport for London, whose new designs for the priority seats on the underground go some way to reminding people how to be decent human beings.The seats are getting new fabric to make them more obviously different to the others, and will be emblazoned with messages like "Someone may need this seat more," "Be prepared to offer this seat," and "Not all disabilities are visible."Today marks the start of @TfL Priority Seating Week.Check out the new designs for priority seats on the Jubilee Line, and don't forget to 'look up' and offer your seat to someone who may need it more.https://t.co/zpg1XgV6Lp jubileeline tfl London pic.twitter.com/U3jqjBWGWgThe priority seats have been on the tube for yonks, but they don't work especially well because some people don't know (or pretend not to know) that you're supposed to give them up for people who need them more, while others feel awkward asking, and most people are so busy looking at their phones that they wouldn't notice if a woman was literally in labour in front of them.

Just when you were wondering when Samsung would deliver its replacement for the ginormous Galaxy View 18.4-inch Android tablet, along come apparent renders of its smaller -- 17.5 inches!-- successor, the Galaxy View 2.Obtained by SamMobile, the photos show a circular cutout rather than a handle, and a folding design rather than a kickstand.(Though Samsung may not want to hear the word "fold" for a while, thanks to the big issues with its new wonderphone, the Galaxy Fold.)According to the site, the tablet attained Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification late last year and appeared in the Geekbench database in January equipped with Samsung's Exynos 7885 CPU and 3GB of memory, Leaked renders usually come out as a product gets close to launch, so we may see this soon.Samsung didn't immediately reply to a request for comment.

has just released the results of its annual survey of the UK's phone networks, and for an impressive eighth year on the trot, Vodafone came out worst.The survey includes 13 UK networks and asks more than 6,000 Which?members about their network's standards for value, customer service and tech support.The bottom three were Vodafone, EE and O2, with the top score going to GiffGaff.Vodafone managed to come bottom by amassing rubbish one-star ratings for its customer service, value and tech support, with a fifth of customers rating its service as 'poor.'Most of the networks that did well were the smaller 'virtual' networks like the relatively-unknown Utility Warehouse and Plusnet Mobile, which came second and third respsectively.

Motor vehicle crashes are the most common cause of emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths related to traumatic brain injury among people aged 15 to 34, according to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Aerospace and mechanical engineering professor Samy Missoum, who is also director of the Computational Design Optimization of Engineering Systems, or CODES Laboratory, and graduate student Seyed Saeed Ahmadisoleymani recently published a paper in Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering that details a new method for calculating the probability of a TBI due to a car accident."We have developed the first steps of a method to assess the probability of TBI based on crash conditions, such as impact velocity and angle."Other approaches are purely computational -- for instance, using finite element models, which are mathematical tools to predict how a system like the brain will behave when subjected to external forces.He uses experimental data to simulate how a dummy moves in a car crash and applies motion data from the simulation to a computer model of the brain to see how it would be affected.This fusion of data provides the basis for a method researchers hope will eventually be able to calculate the probability of TBI after a car crash.

U.S. carrier Sprint took rival network AT to court earlier this year after the latter introduced fake 5G branding on several phones using its network.Now, it turns out that the two networks have agreed to settle the lawsuit, but with AT reportedly allowed to keep using its so-called 5G E branding.An AT spokesperson told the Dallas Business Journal (h/t: The Verge) that the two companies have “amicably settled the matter.” This statement was echoed in an official emailed response sent to Android Authority.Furthermore, a source told the outlet that AT will be allowed to keep using the controversial branding.It makes for a disappointing turn of events from a consumer point of view, as 5G E isn’t real 5G at all.The carrier used 5G E as a marketing term for its 4G LTE network, despite this network using the same technologies as rival carriers.

Despite a fruitful start to 2019 for most FTSE 100 index stocks, the mood of many investors will have been tempered by further uncertainty over the prized dividend at Vodafone (LSE:VOD).The most valuable income stock in the top flight continues to trade with a yield above 9%, reflecting persistent fears in the market that its debt pile and burden of 5G investment will force the dividend to be cut for the first time since it was introduced in 1990.This is reflected in their continued support for a stock they believe has the potential to reach 250p - trimmed today from 268p - a level not seen since the summer of 2015.In a note to clients, Deutsche said it sensed a shift in the balance towards more favourable news at the start of the new financial year - even if competition in the European telecom markets remains fierce.Source: TradingView Past performance is not a guide to future performanceIn particular, the broker believes the the debt fears created by the May 2018 purchase of European assets from Liberty Global will give way to more positive sentiment around the benefits the deal will have for free cash flow, and a dividend not presently covered by earnings.

Rumour is the OnePlus 7 will arrive on the 14th May, and that there will be at least two different iterations of the phone coming along for the ride.Which is very unlike OnePlus, but hey.There's a lot we still don't know about what's on the way, but a brand new leak may tell us exactly what to expect in both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro people are expecting to see.48MP F1.7 + 5MP Depth (Rear)(I don't have infos about them)It seems like the Pro is going to get all the best features, with the new 30W warp charge fast-charging system, a bigger battery, a triple-lens camera system, a slightly bigger screen, and resolution beyond the usual 1080p OnePlus has gone with the past few years.
