I guess you must know by now the “red tint” issue that has been plaguing some (not a lot) Galaxy S8 owners around the world, who have complained of reddish tints on the screens of their new smartphone, as you can see from the image above.Samsung has already admitted the issue and recently confirmed that a fix will be released via an upcoming update soon (this week presumably), but today the independent testing company Consumer Reports made a relevant announcement, saying that the problem is “not that serious”.Join GizChina on TelegramAccording to them, they managed to get their hands onto 8 different Galaxy S8 devices, 4 of which had the red tint.Their testers confirmed that the only way one could “see” the difference was when two devices are positioned next to each other, but this surely doesn’t justify the issue.Samsung has already issued a statement saying that it is possible to calibrate the display  manually through Settings.You have to tap on Display and then on Screen mode, where you just tap on Color balance and “play” with the RGB toggles, until the issue disappears.Some users however mention that this solution has no effect on their displays, so they will have to wait until the official bug fix from the Korean company.Note also that according to Consumer Reports this problem is no reason for refund or device exchange.Share this:TweetMorePocketShare on TumblrEmailPrint

Murthy, a holdover from the Obama administration will continue to serve as a member of the Commissioned Corps.An emailed statement from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offered little explanation.It’s not unusual for holdovers from previous administrations to be asked to resign but the Trump administration has famously been slow to nominate replacements so far.It has also drawn controversy over several high-profile dismissals that are still shrouded in scandal.Acting Attorney General Sally Q. Yates was also controversially fired for refusing to order Justice Department lawyers to defend Trump’s illegal immigration ban.With no nominee for the surgeon general position, the decision to replace Dr. Murthy certainly raises questions about why he needed to resign so suddenly, late on a Friday when news is often dropped to avoid raising attention.

One of the many challenges of colonizing Mars is that the planet is lacking many of the natural resources we rely on here on Earth.We’ll need to bring as much of what we need to survive as possible, but you can only pack so much into a spaceship.So scientists are developing ways to utilize at least one of the red planet’s most abundant resources: dust.We’ve had a hard time coming up with reasons as to why everyone needs a 3D printer here on Earth, but on Mars the machines could be used to manufacture tools, spare parts, even entire structures, habitats, and vehicles, given there’s no hardware stores for astronauts to visit if we eventually send humans on the 34 million mile journey.But 3D printers don’t make things out of thin air.You’ve probably seen an affordable consumer-friendly 3D printer at work, melting and extruding thin lengths of plastic to build up a model.

When there’s a clear value exchange or concrete reason for information sharing, consumers will do it — but typically not without some hesitation.A new survey by YouGov, conducted for [24]7 in March, asked more than 1,000 US adults about their feelings on a range of customer-experience issues tied to personalization and privacy.The survey data can be spun either as a win for personalization or as a partial repudiation of it.Personalization was broadly defined in the survey as any of the following: “e-mail, age, location, browsing history, preferences, previous purchases, etc.” There was a clear hierarchy of reasons for sharing information.The top three responses were deals, customer service improvements and self-checkout (payments).A small minority (15 percent) were interested in targeted ads.

My problem with gaming laptops has always been twofold.Second, the starting-at price is never the ending-up at price.So even when say, Origin PC announces that its EON15-S series laptops will start at $999 instead of the price of a used car with moderate mileage and windows that still work, I'm either excited or skeptical.The base model of the EON15-S will have a 15.6-inch screen with 1920x1080 resolution, which is better than most of the cheaper laptops out there.The processor is an Intel Core i3-7100H, which is better than running your gaming laptop with a lawn mower engine, but not better than spending a few bucks more to boost the processor up to Core i5 CPU.The included 120GB SSD can be upgraded to 6TB of storage with some m.2 SSDs.
