Samsung CEO says he pushed Galaxy Fold launch ‘before it was ready’

Samsung co-CEO DJ Koh says he pushed the Galaxy Fold to market “before it was ready,” leading to the device’s delay just days before it was supposed to ship out to customers. “It was embarrassing,” Koh told a small group of reporters, according to The Independent. The Galaxy Fold, which would have been the first major release of a foldable smartphone, was supposed to come out in late April. But as reviewers started testing the phone in the weeks prior, several noticed that the screen could be easily destroyed, either by debris slipping in or by user error. “We are in the process of recovery.” The phone has been delayed since then. Samsung has promised that the phone will still …

Filed under: Earnings/Financials,Government/Legal,Green,Tesla,Technology,Crossover,Hatchback,Sedan,Bikes,Electric,Luxury,Performance WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is expanding its efforts to block the use of Chinese technology in advanced vehicles, denying additional requests by Tesla for tariff relief on key components of its electric vehicles, and rejecting ride hailing company Uber’s petition to waive tariffs on electric scooters.

A computer virus has thrown Philadelphia’s court system into chaos

Since May 21st, a virus has shut down Philadelphia’s online court system, bringing network access to a standstill. The problems started unexpectedly: suddenly, no one could seem to access the system to file documents. “It wasn’t working,” says Rachel Gallegos, a senior staff attorney with the civil legal aid organization Community Legal Services. “I thought it was my computer.” As Baltimore deals with a devastating malware attack, the Philadelphia court shutdown is raising similar questions about how cities can respond when crucial services are suddenly lost. The outage has now stretched on for weeks, forcing attorneys to use paperwork filed in person and raising difficult questions about who is slipping through the cracks of the broken… Continue reading… Read more: …

Shazam can now identify songs playing through your headphones on Android

Shazam can be an incredibly useful app, able to identify songs and find lyrics for them just by listening to the audio. But one big annoyance has been the software’s inability to ‘hear’ music playing through a device’s headphones. Instead, users have to play the song through internal speakers or find a way to direct the sound to their phone or tablet’s microphone. Not any more. A new feature called Pop-up Shazam in the latest Android version of the app works with audio played through headphones with Shazam working in the background. When identifying music this way, Pop-up Shazam appears like a floating chat icon in your phone’s UI. It bubbles to the top of your current screen, and once …

You can now use an Android phone as a physical security key for two-factor authentication on iOS

Google is expanding the ability to use an Android phone as a physical two-factor authentication security key to include iOS devices (the feature previously launched in April, but only worked with Chrome OS, macOS, or Windows 10), as noted by 9to5Mac. Due to limitations on how iOS works, the process is slightly different here: instead of using Chrome to communicate with the device (as used for the PC versions), the Android phone links up with Google’s Smart Lock app instead. The net result is that once it’s all set up, when you log into your Google account on an iOS device, the app is able to ping the Android phone over Bluetooth. Then, users can confirm that they are, in …

This is Google’s Pixel 4

Google just tweeted an image of the Pixel 4, a smartphone that the company isn’t expected to ship until October. The tweet comes after renders of the device were published in recent days, revealing a change in design language from Google’s previous devices. “Wait ‘til you see what it can do,” the Pixel team tweeted. The official image clearly shows at least two rear cameras and a third sensor of some kind in a large camera bump on the phone’s back. There’s also another tiny dot at the lower right of the camera module, which could be a microphone. Is the secondary lens for portraits or a wide-angle perspective? Who knows. Apart from that, we see what looks to be …

How to block ad tracking on your iPhone

A recent article in The Washington Post by Geoffrey Fowler described the author’s shock when he discovered just how many of his iPhone apps were collecting and uploading information about his usage while he slept. As we all know by now, data is a huge commodity these days. If you use a phone, laptop, or any type of computing device (unless you’re a security expert or a high-end hacker with access to sophisticated blocking tools), you’re paying for your apps by contributing marketing and other info to the companies that supply them. As Fowler’s article demonstrates, iPhone users are not immune to this, no matter how much Apple assures its customers that it’s looking out for their privacy. But there …
