When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold, it didn't just announce another phone -- it kicked off a revolution in the way we interact with mobile devices.But the Fold soon suffered screen breakages and other glitches, and the revolution stalled.It's been nearly four weeks since we've heard any details from Samsung about the Fold.An AT email to customers suggested that the phone would come next month.Consumers, industry players and reviewers alike are waiting with bated breath.If Samsung wants to ensure that the Fold is free of problems, it should spend the appropriate time and resources on fixing everything, regardless of internal deadlines or pressure from carrier partners, consumers or the press.

Last month, a spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station carrying, among other cargo, small cube-shaped robots called Astrobees.The devices are designed to operate in the space lab’s unique microgravity environment, offering assistance to the astronauts located on the ISS.In its most recent update on the matter, NASA shared an image of the Astrobee robot ‘Bumble’ on the ISS alongside some details about how it and its ‘Honey’ companion are operating.As with their counterparts on Earth, astronauts can benefit from robots designed to take over certain tasks that would otherwise use up precious time better suited for complex tasks.NASA points out on its website that robotic assistants can work to improve the space station’s efficiency by assistant with some ‘routine duties’ like taking inventory, moving around cargo, and using cameras to document experiments.The Astrobee is described as a free-flying system — it was made specifically to operate in the ISS’s microgravity environment.

Most air and car museums show their machines like still-life art.From early biplanes to Model T's, muscle cars to WWII fighters, here's a look at some of the incredible machines at WAAAM.The white hangars of WAAAM could be any industrial park, and unlike other air museums there's no multitude of aircraft scattered outside.One of the docents was nice enough to show me through part of the museum and answer some questions.Hearing that almost all the aircraft and automobiles at the museum were actually flyable/drivable blew my mind.These are 100-year-old wooden airframes and in some cases the sole remaining example of their type.

Alongside news of the Rescue Rangers film, the Hollywood Reporter dropped one more bombshell last night, in the form of a well-sourced rumour about the future of Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie: in particular, its villains.According to the report, Reeves is still working on his script, but it’s said to have, at this stage of development, at least two villains: The Penguin and another mystery villain.Catwoman is also rumoured to play a role in the story, though whether it’s as a villain or something more complicated is not known.The Penguin hasn’t seen a big-screen adaptation since Batman Returns in the early nineties, so he would make an interesting choice.Though it’d also be lovely to see a villain or two we’ve never seen before.The Batman is roughly scheduled for a 2021 release, and Robert Pattinson is apparently in the lead for the headline role.

A common misconception: “Internet security isn’t important, I’ve got nothing to hide anyway.” Your conversations may be trivial for now, but you never know when you and your friends or colleagues discuss matters that could be of value to someone else who shouldn’t be eavesdropping.From top-secret agendas like the Russian probe and Cambridge Analytica, to marketing uses that bring you targeted advertisements.From rants about work to things we want to buy.Here’s how it works to keep your messages secure:Two keys are generated when you boot the messaging app: a private key and a public key.The private one is exclusive to your phone, while the public key is available to anyone you message.

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe will arrive in the US this fall, with base, S and Turbo versions initially available at launch.But in typical Porsche fashion, more variants will be offered in the not-too-distant future, the next of which will be a Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid."You can expect a hybrid version," a Porsche executive told Roadshow during a media event for the Cayenne Coupe in Austria on Saturday.It's unclear exactly when this model will launch, but it's safe to assume it will follow the other three gasoline-only variants.It's also safe to assume the Coupe E-Hybrid will share its powertrain with the standard, electrified Cayenne.That means we can expect a turbocharged, 3.0-liter V6 paired with a 14.1-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery and electric motor, for a total system output of 455 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

Echo VR developer Ready at Dawn explained in a short blog post how the game will work with the inside-out tracked Touch controllers on Oculus Rift S.The developer also praised the higher resolution display of the Rift S, claiming it makes it “easier to read name tags and help pick out snipers from far away.”Whereas the original Rift used external USB sensors for tracking, the Rift S uses five onboard cameras instead.The headset tracking works using advanced computer vision algorithms, but the controller tracking operates in a similar way to Rift- the cameras track the infrared LEDs under the plastic of the tracking rings.Like Windows MR headsets, these cameras use wide angle fisheye lenses.The problem for Echo VR

SpaceIL’s Beresheet spacecraft might not have made the final hurdle to land on the moon, but it could still make a contribution to scientific knowledge.An image of the site of the crash has been captured by a NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) and is being analyzed for information about the lunar soil.The LRO is an unmanned spacecraft which orbits the moon at an altitude of between 50 and 200km (31 to 124 miles).It was original launched to assist with tasks like locating an appropriate landing site for missions to the moon, but now mostly focuses on scientific work like gathering temperature maps and high resolution images.The images above were gathered by the LRO’s Narrow Angle Cameras (NAC).There are two NACs on the LRO, which capture panchromatic images at a 0.5 meter scale over a 5km (3.1 mile) swath.

In 2012, America was halfway through President Obama's time in office.The first Avengers movie came out, and Hunger Games premiered.Hope was high, and Reddit—the Web's "front page"—was where anyone with a cute pet could get thousands of upvotes.Then, in September of that year, Bryan Bundesen posted a picture of his sister Tabatha's cat, Tardar Sauce, an 11-month old tabby with feline dwarfism that perpetually looked annoyed.Memes weren't yet weapons of mass disruption (at least not on the scale that they came to be in 2016) and we still knew what a troll was.Now, Grumpy Cat is dead—the feline's owners announced her passing today on Twitter—and with her goes an era in which the Internet was more a place of joy than hate, uplift rather than harassment.

Google has recently been trying to portray itself as more privacy-focused, such as in an op-ed which CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in the New York Times saying that “privacy should not be a luxury good.”But the reality is that Google, like many internet companies, makes its money from your data.The more data a company has on you, the more accurately it can target advertisements to you specifically.A report from CNBC this week found a troubling example of the way that Google collects data from the services you use without you being aware of it.They found that Google tracks many of your online purchases, even if they are bought from a non-Google affiliated store like Amazon.The “Purchases” page on Google keeps track of many of the purchases that you have made, using digital receipts sent to your Gmail inbox.

It's unfamiliar, at times uncomfortable, and it takes a while before things start to feel normal.But once you get used to it, you almost forget what made you so uneasy in the first place.I've temporarily switched from the iPhone to various Android devices on many occasions over the years, but ultimately I've always ended up choosing Apple's smartphone as my primary device.But after recently swapping out my iPhone XS Max for a Google Pixel 3a XL, I was surprised by how little I missed my iPhone, despite the fact that Google's phone was less than half as expensive.You can set up a separate profile for family members that lets them store their own apps, accounts, and data in a space that's completely separate from yours.So if you hand off your phone to your 9-year-old cousin so that she can play "Angry Birds," you can just switch to her account or a guest account and rest assured that she won't accidentally make a purchase or change your Facebook status.

Hackers and data breaches make headlines on this website and all over the internet every single day.Taking a simple and easy step like turning on strong multifactor authentication turns out to be an incredibly effective way of protecting your online accounts.Researchers looked at multifactor authentication tools like physical security keys, on-device prompts, and text messages to figure out how well these techniques really protect you.This is the tool used by journalists, politicians, human rights defenders and people for whom cybersecurity can be a matter of life and death.Don’t let that 100 per cent mark fool you—it’s not perfect, as Google’s recent recall of its Titan keys over a Bluetooth vulnerability proves—but it’s singularly powerful.Many important online accounts allow you to use authenticator apps like Google Authenticator or, like Gmail, in-app prompts that help prove your identity to the platform.

Verizon, which launched a 5G home service last fall, turned on its network in Chicago and Minneapolis in early April but says the cities will have only pockets of 5G coverage.But a follow-up test in May with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which had the 5G radio integrated into the phone, proved to be a much better experience, with speeds above 1 gigabit per second, or faster than Google Fiber.It's the next (fifth) generation of cellular technology, which promises to greatly enhance the speed, coverage and responsiveness of wireless networks.That lag time can last around 20 milliseconds with current networks.It doesn't seem like much, but with 5G, that latency gets reduced to as little as 1 millisecond, or about the time it takes for a flash on a normal camera.But given the range and interference issues, the carriers are also using lower-frequency spectrum -- the type used in today's networks -- to help ferry 5G across greater distances and through walls and other obstructions.
