It looks like some protective case manufacturers don t keep their non-disclosure agreements with the companies, so after Samsung s Galaxy S8, today it s time to see new leaked images of LG G6, inside a – brand new- protective case!The images below come from the well-known case maker Ghostek and show a – not mentioned- smartphone inside a protective case, that looks a lot like the upcoming G6 flagship model.From the looks of it, the phone must be quite thin, with a fingerprint sensor and a dual camera set up on the back side, but without any annoying camera bumps thank God .The latest rumors insist that LG G6 will be made out of metal and pack a 5.7 inch 2880 1440 pixel touchscreen, with IP68 certification water proof .The Korean flagship is expected to use a powerful Snapdragon 835 SoC along with -at least- 4GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage.It will be announced during MWC 2017 in Barcelona, but this is more than one month away, so we should just be patient and wait.

I ve owned the fourth-generation Apple TV for over a year now.You can even use it to enter passwords, which is a huge time-saver.- Multimedia loads and buffers quickly, and it all looks great, which is pretty close to a cable TV experience in terms of image quality and responsiveness.Of course, Apple should be nailing the Apple TV

First of all, you should know that Turbo League has nothing to do with hit game Rocket League.This mobile game might look, feel, sound, move and generally riff on the name of 2015 s cars-meet-soccer surprise hit – but it s got nothing on it.However, that won t matter to many people, who will find this to be an addictive cult game, in which the ridiculous premise of monster trucks smashing a ball around a soccer pitch feels quite normal.Still, the problem with Turbo League is its controls.Like any good sports game, the console game Rocket League thrived on its smooth movements, and quick reactions led to lightning-fast matches and sudden, unexpected victories.There s nothing like that in Turbo, mostly because you re dealing with a touchscreen, often the bane of good mobile gaming.

There are few more dreadful feelings like letting one slide out, only to realise your expelling of noxious gas is about to singe the nostril hairs of fellow inhabitants.However, what if simply by using your phone you could just as quickly mask the aroma of last night s dinner by activating a scented air freshener?That s sort of, but not really the pitch of Moodo, which is currently seeking your backing on Indiegogo.The smart device can harness up to four fragrance capsules at a time and will even allow homemakers to create fragrance playlists depending on the event or the time of day.By mixing the crystal filled capsules like Precious Spices, Eucalyptus Nights and Sandal Wood, there are over 400,000 scent possibilities, which were created by a leading French perfumer.The makers, Agan Aroma, say users will be able to create scenes like wood cabin or ocean breeze and save them to a profile.

Tarnita and her colleagues' paper in suggests that we're probably seeing an unusual interaction between plants and termites, both attempting to maintain access to water in dry areas.Using a computer model that accounted for both plant and insect life cycles, the researchers were able to reproduce the exact patterns we see in fairy circles.Speaking to the , Tarnita marveled, "It's an amazing thing that you can get such clean, beautiful geometric patterns.Such tiny creatures doing their thing very locally every day end up producing these unbelievable large-scale patterns... To me, it's mind-boggling that nature can do that."Kaplan added that Princeton chemist Salvatore Torquato identified the fairy circle patterns as "hyperuniform," a state often seen in substances whose semi-organized atomic structure puts them halfway between a crystal and a liquid.

Astronomers have discovered an immense surge of energy coming from a cosmic particle accelerator located about 2 billion light years from Earth.It's powered by interactions between a supermassive black hole and the colliding galaxy clusters Abell 3411 and Abell 3412.Using several telescopes, researchers have traced extremely energetic particles back to a giant black hole shooting out matter, and this material is then caught up in the galaxy merger, flinging the particles away with even more power.The research team compared the process to launching a rocket into low-Earth orbit and then sending that rocket out of the solar system with another rocket blast."We have seen each of these spectacular phenomena separately in many places," study leader Reinout van Weeren, a fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics CfA , said in a statement."This is the first time, however, that we 've seen them clearly linked together in the same system."

It s hard to write to write a review of Glittermitten Grove without giving it all away, but if you ve heard of the game, you re probably clued in to its secret.So I m just going to come out and say it: Frog Fractions.If that means anything to you, you re probably getting excited now.This surreal, bizarre and wonderfully weird free-to-play browser game from 2012 blew minds everywhere.On the surface, it was a simple educational game: a frog, a lily pad and a bunch of insects.But stick with it, and it revealed itself to be one of the weirdest games ever seen, taking in everything from underwater realms to porn outlets.

Foldable phones seem inevitable at this point, with everyone from Samsung to Microsoft said to be working on flexible mobile devices.And now, perhaps unsurprisingly, it looks like LG has some bendable ambitions of its own, as a new patent details a clamshell device with a display on the outside.The patent, uncovered by GSMinfo, demonstrates a design where the screen is on the outside of the folding parts, so the phone can be used even when folded.In its folded position, the device is said to be the same size as a standard smartphone, while the unfolded position would see it transform into more of a tablet.This follows the design of several recent patents from Samsung and Microsoft which detail handsets that can be folded into larger tablet devices.LG's own design is for a smartphone with a screen size of 5 inches, that would transform into a tablet with a display size of 7 inches.

Former Apple engineer Bob Burrough says CEO Tim Cook has converted Apple "from a dynamic change-maker into a boring operations company."CNBC interviewed Burrough about his claim, and he explained why he thinks Apple's current internal culture differs from its culture when Steve Jobs lead the company.Burrough worked at the company for more than seven years as a software engineer under both Jobs and Cook, according to his LinkedIn profile.Burrough tweeted about his former employer as part of a thread conversation.When Apple analyst Horace Dediu disagreed with Burrough's tweet, Burrough replied that the changes in Apple's internal culture aren't easy to see from outside the company.Here's a screenshot of part of the thread where he discussed Cook's effect on Apple's culture:And here's Burrough's comment to CNBC:"At Apple in 2007, organizationally it was the Wild West.I was hired under a particular manager but for the first two years worked on projects that had virtually nothing to do with that manager's core responsibility.That's because the organization wasn't the priority — the projects were the priority."It was the exact opposite of 'not my job.'It was 'I'm here to solve whatever problems I can, irrespective of my role, my title, or to whom I report.'

Up to 50-hour battery lifeWhat are the Beats Solo 3 Wireless?Plastic and fairly unconvincing synthetic leather are used for the frame and pads, and on my review pair the glossy finish doesn t exactly hide the plastic construction.However, just like last time I used a pair of Solos I ve been pleasantly surprised by how they fare for longer listening.The aim is to give you the kind of system-level integration Bluetooth speakers have so far lacked.How much people should have to pay for this sort of convenience is up for debate.
