Samsung confirms its Bixby-powered smart speaker is on the way


Following the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 yesterday, the company’s mobile chief, DJ Koh, confirmed that a Bixby-powered smart speaker will be launched soon. Koh told CNBC, “Maybe soon we will announce it. I am already working on it. As I mentioned I wanted to provide a fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices, and I want to be moving quite heavily on it.” That confirms The Wall Street Journal’s scoop from July about the upcoming device – and rubbishes The Korea Herald’s subsequent report about the project being shelved. A Samsung speaker makes a lot of sense…

Monument Valley II is headed to Android at last


Following the release of Ustwo Games’ Monument Valley II on iOS last June, the incredibly artistic puzzler is almost ready for Android users. The game is now listed on Google Play and you can pre-register to be notified when it launches (Ustwo hasn’t announced a release date yet). The original Monument Valley costs about $4 in the store, so expect to see a similar price (if not a bit higher) for the sequel when it’s out. In case you haven’t tried it before, I highly recommend Monument Valley for its beautiful art style and clever puzzles full of Escher-inspired spaces…

Google’s Pixel 2 flagship phones might launch on October 5


Google is expected to unveil its Pixel 2 premium phones on October 5, according to tipster Evan Blass, who’s usually on the ball about this sort of thing. The device will improve on its predecessor from last October with a new Snapdragon 836 processor, which Android Central believes will be a tweaked version of the formidable 835 chip that we’ve seen in the OnePlus 5 and Xiaomi’s Mi 6 this year. Google's second-generation Pixel handsets, powered by Snapdragon 836 SoC's, will be unveiled on October 5th. — Evan Blass (@evleaks) August 24, 2017 As was the case with the first…

NASA wants to spend $3B drilling into a volcano to save the United States


If the Yellowstone Caldera ever erupted, the consequences would be devastating. Having last erupted over 70,000 years ago, the Caldera, a bowl-shaped structure formed by previous evacuation of lava, could be a ticking time bomb. “Ticking,” in this case, is relevant. We have no way of knowing when Yellowstone will erupt again, but scientists don’t believe it to be an imminent threat, at least not in our lifetimes. That’s not stopping NASA from putting a plan together to ensure the threat posed by Yellowstone never comes to fruition. Based on previous eruptions, we could assume lava won’t be much of…

Here’s how our favorite apps have aged over the years


Apps can change drastically in what seems like a very short span of time. Just ten years ago, the word “apps” would probably not have conjured such an instant reaction in any of our brains. Now, though, apps are a major part of how we communicate, entertain ourselves, and interact with the world. Many apps have come and gone over the years, and some that were incredibly popular at time of launch aren’t even available now. But some have stuck around for several years. They’ve evolved so much since then that seeing the previous iterations of some of them can…

Scientists developed unhackable communication based on underwater teleportation


Researchers at Shanghai Jiao Tong University recently published a paper claiming they’ve sent entangled light particles through seawater, something that’s never been done before. The team was able to transmit particles over three meters of seawater in an isolated environment. While this isn’t exactly going to secure communications across the seas – yet – it’s first step in bringing the quantum internet solution to a globe that’s covered in oceans. It’s interesting because it’s basically teleportation. Quantum entanglement is a highly complex process that involves shooting a laser through a crystal optic to create entangled photons. TNW covered the successful…

Ex-CIA operative wants to buy Twitter and #BanTrump


If Twitter is a mouthpiece, Donald Trump owns the lips blowing hot air into the business end of it. He’s criticized celebrities, pouted about SNL skits, berated journalists, and even threatened war, all while managing to keep his tirades under 140 characters. And some Twitter users, it seems, have had enough. A new GoFundMe campaign hopes to buy the platform with a singular goal in mind: to shut up Donald Trump. Trump has fully weaponized Twitter: it’s not something that just happens “online.” Time and again his use of this huge global platform has major consequences in the real world.…

How hackers are using social media to hack


Hackers think social media is the best thing ever. Not only has it attracted longtime hackers, but it has also created new ones. It’s just so easy! Individual social media platforms have been hackable since their introduction. But, believe it or not, social media was a small net at one time. Now that social media platforms have multiplied and attracted hundreds of millions to their universe, they’re inviting hacking attacks. The problems that exist According to a 2016 study by The University of Phoenix, 84 percent of U.S. adults claim to have at least one social media account and, “as…
