Samsung may have inadvertently teased the design of the Galaxy S8 in two new videos posted to YouTube.The company s screen-manufacturing arm, Samsung Display, has published two short advertisements showing off the capabilities of its displays.But what s interesting is that the handset depicted in both videos looks very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks we ve seen so far.The most notable feature is the lack of Home button, which is a design change widely tipped to be introduced on the Galaxy S8:It s expected that Samsung plans to integrate the functionality of the Home button into the display.This would involve embedding an optical fingerprint sensor below the glass on the phone.

When you're on a dating website like Match.com or idly swiping on Tinder, generally you're more likely to match with — and also speak to — someone who is intellectually similar.Apparently, we're more willing to let our standards slide as time passes, as the study found that people get less fussy about finding someone who has the same level of

In November 2016, the Las Vegas Strip got a brand new Taco Bell Cantina — the latest, and arguably greatest, in the fast food chain's new line of upscale restaurants, as it wages war on Chipotle."This flagship restaurant is our ultimate expression of the Taco Bell brand, and lifestyle," Taco Bell CMO Marisa Thalberg said in a press release at the time.Located right on the world-famous Las Vegas strip, this restaurant goes a little bit above and beyond your average Taco Bell.Not only is it super-swanky inside, it also serves alcohol including slushies made from its famous Mountain Dew Baja Blast soda, with an optional shot of liquor .Better yet, it's open 24 hours.We knew we had to swing by while we were around Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show, especially after a cab driver told us that it was the hottest ticket in town.Here's what it was like: View As:

With dozens of smart home products on the CES show floor, who would have guessed a trash can would be what everyone was talking about?GeniCan is a stick-on attachment for your trash can that uses a barcode scanner and voice recognition to help you compile grocery lists based on what you re throwing away.Simply scan an item before tossing it into the trash and GeniCan automagically adds it to an accompanying smartphone app.If the item doesn t have a barcode, or it s unreadable, you ll just hold the item in front of the scanner and wait for the prompt.Once GeniCan asks what you re throwing away, simply tell it, and it ll add that to the list as well.Better still, you don t even have to leave the house to buy these grocery items.

An artificial intelligence AI developed by an unknown entity has been annihilating some of the world's best Go players online over the last few days and people are desperate to know who is behind it.The AI, being referred to simply as "Master," has played more than 50 games against top Go players and won every single one of them.Go is a complex game that has been notoriously difficult for computers to crack because of the sheer number of potential moves.It is a two-player turn-based strategy game where each player puts down either black or white stones in an attempt to outmaneuver and surround the other player.It's easy to pick up but takes years to master.The games — being played on Tygem, an internet Go server owned by South Korean company TongYang Online — have caught the attention of Reddit users and a thread is calling on the AI's creator to reveal themself or indeed themselves."This whole thing is just really cool," wrote Reddit user Open Thinker."I hope we learn who the author s are soon."So a mysterious AI, 'Master', is trouncing top Go players online 50-0, likely superhuman, and no one knows who created it.

The scheme could put an end to having to plug in a carNew technology for electric vehicles could see the end of having to navigate plugs and wires for refuelling after Ford unveiled a wireless system that will let drivers charge their cars by simply pulling up in a parking space.The wireless charging technology, which to date has only been available for smaller gadgets such as phones and smartwatches, means that electric car drivers in Europe can park-and-charge without the need of a plug.The company said the system has been designed to prevent drivers from forgetting to recharge and to allow small fuel boosts even when time is tight.Innovative services can be as important to customers as the electrified vehicles themselves, said Hua Thai-Tang of Ford s electric vehicle division.We are investing in solutions to help private customers as well as commercial fleet owners seamlessly incorporate these new vehicles and technologies into their lives.

Recently on Twitter I came across this photo:It's not HORRIBLE, but it's not great either.First: The text overlapping the image is white but the sky and mountains in the background are also a light color, making it hard to read the title.Second: There is no branding on this image.There is a website, sure, but it looks incredible unprofessional."121 Posts tagged content creation".

My gf is currently wrapping up a Masters in Marketing in Turkey.She's thinking of pursuing a PhD in Marketing afterwards.She graduated with a Bachelors in Arts International Relations from Canada.She's been working in the industry for the last 3 years as well, but she's finding the opportunities are not awash, either in Turkey or Europe.What are your thoughts on doing a PhD in Marketing in Turkey/Europe, with regards to future employability, opportunities that it would open, and future prospects?I'm a STEM graduate, working in technology, and my view is far too narrow to be helpful for her.

A moulin, or drainage passageway, inside the crater on the Roi Baudouin ice shelf in Antarctica.A "crater" in Antarctica once thought to be the work of a meteorite impact is actually the result of ice melt, new research finds.The hole, which is in the Roi Baudouin ice shelf in East Antarctica, is a collapsed lake — a cavity formed when a lake of meltwater drained — with a "moulin," a nearly vertical drainage passage through the ice, beneath it, researchers found on a field trip to the area in January 2016."That was a huge surprise," Stef Lhermitte, an earth science researcher at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and at the University of Leuven in Belgium, said in a statement.See Photos of the Meltwater Lake Crater in Antarctica Combining their fieldwork with satellite data and climate modeling, the researchers found that East Antarctica is more vulnerable to melt than was previously realized.

A huge expanse of cold, Arctic air is sweeping through parts of Canada and the United States.Known as a polar vortex, the weather system is expected to deliver record-setting low temperatures and a particularly nasty wind chill.This visualisation was made from data collected by the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder AIRS instrument onboard NASA s Aqua satellite, and it shows temperature data in the infrared spectrum.From 1 to 11 December, AIRS tracked the cold snap as it swept across North America.The cold air continued to make its way from west to east, reaching into the Ohio Valley and New England on 9th December.These regions are now feeling the brunt of this cold air mass, which is expected to deliver frigid record-setting temperatures this week.

After becoming quite a bit larger than I once was, I ve invested in the Mi Band 2.Here s what I think of this little wearable.Xiaomi weren t the firs to launch a fitness tracker but they ve been the ones to really make this simple wearable tech accessible and easy to use.While the high streets might be full of Fitbits, it s us in the know who have been lured over to the Xiaomi Mi Band, and it s now quite a commons device to see whether you walk around Beijing, London or Madrid!Xiaomi Mi Band 2 strapI reviewed, and loved, the original Xiaomi Mi Band, I wasn t quite taken with the Mi Band 1S, but this new Mi Band 2 is incredible.Xiaomi Mi Band 2 ReviewFor the Mi Band 2, Xiaomi have kept the design of the wearable nice and simple, only adding features that are really useful and would make the wearable even more user friendly.The original Mi Band had a very simple metal face with 3 LED lights that flashed to tell you of a notification or when you reached a certain goal .If you wanted more accurate information you would need to log in to the Mi Fitness app on your phone.For the Mi Band 2, Xiaomi have given the device it s own OLED display which tells you much of the information you want to see while on the go.The display tells you the number of steps you have taken so far, will work out the calories burnt and distance traveled too.A glass face takes up the front of the new Xiaomi Mi Band, which a simple touch sensitive button to flick through the different menus.Mi Band 2 Heart MonitorLike the Mi Band 1S the Mi Band 2 has a heart monitor on the rear and your pulse can be taken by simply tapping to the heart icon and waiting a few seconds.I can also happily report that I haven t had any odd burns or marks which some wearers reported on the Mi Band 1S.One feature the original Mi Bands didn t have, and one that many of us really wanted, was the ability to tell the time.With that OLED display the Mi Band 2 now has the time instantly making this a much more useable device than ever before.Bluetooth is still present so all your data is sync d across to your phone, and if you wear the Mi Band 2 when you sleep the wearable will keep a record of how long you have slept and how much deep sleep you managed.The Mi Fitness App also syncs with Xiaomi s smart scales and together you can create a very accurate exercise regime to keep in shape.Battery life on the Mi Band 2 isn t quite up to the battery life on the original Mi Band, but I ve been getting through 3 weeks of daily use on a single charge, and charging the built in batter to full takes hardly any time at all.The battery life and speed of charge has meant that the Mi Band 2 has replaced my Asus Android Wear watch as my daily wearable.The main brain is removable from the strapAll in all there is nothing that I would change on the Mi Band 2.

Perhaps you re like me and you wasted or spent wisely hours and hours of your youth playing Escape Velocity and its various sequels on an early Mac.If you are in that group, than the Galaxy on Fire series is probably no stranger, either.And if neither of these games sounds familiar, then I ve got good news – there s still time, and the new Galaxy on Fire 3 – Manticore is a good place to start.The third true sequel in the series there was a more multiplayer oriented iteration is like its predecessors, in that it focuses on you flying around space, trading goods, taking missions and shooting down other pilots in a quest to fulfill the game s plot, yes, but also to build your rep as an intergalactic badass.There are loads of ships to buy, upgrades to acquire, and systems to explore, and it s also all doing this on iOS with gorgeous new graphics that look terrific on your iPhone or iPad s high density screen.GoF 3 has a free-to-play, in-app purchase supported model, which isn t my favorite thing in the world, but it s not terribly annoying and you still get the pleasure of wandering a wide open tussling with the locals.

SEOUL— Samsung heir apparent Lee Jae-yong denied his company paid kickbacks in exchange for political favors as lawmakers grilled the nation s top businessmen in a probe of influence peddling that has South Korea s president facing an impeachment vote.During a lengthy session before a parliamentary committee Tuesday, Mr. Lee told lawmakers he wasn t initially made aware of donations by Samsung affiliates to two foundations allegedly controlled by a confidante of President Park Geun-hye.The hearing was an extraordinary hourslong public grilling of South Korea s most powerful business tycoons that began after breakfast and stretched into the night.Mr. Lee bore the brunt of the questioning among a lineup that included Hyundai Motor Group chairman Chung Mong-koo, Lotte Group chairman Shin Dong-bin and SK Group s Chey Tae-won.Mr. Lee on Tuesday pledged to shut an office within Samsung known as the control tower, which spearheads major deals and manages high-level personnel moves within the conglomerate.That entity—formally the Future Strategy Office within the Samsung Group—has been in the spotlight for its alleged involvement in channeling funds to the two foundations.

How to join the networkBots made big headlines in 2016.It seems likely that, just as the web and the cell phone once did, the messaging interface will transform how we interact with the world around us.To do so, however, the bot community must tackle head-on the same issues of interoperability and cross-platform standards that plagued the early days of the web and the cell phone industry.We take it for granted that we can view any website using any browser, and we can send SMS messages to any friend regardless of their phone carrier.Twenty years ago, it was common for Netscape users to be blocked by an optimized for Internet Explorer icon.
