Samsung MWC 2018 Liveblog
Mobile World Congress isn’t always a huge show for Samsung (last year we got a couple of tablets and some vague 5G news), but this year the company’s not messing around. Between the many teasers and seemingly endless deluge of leaks, the Galaxy S9 is all but announced at this point.
Nokia’s banana phone from The Matrix is back
Unlike the 3310, the 8110 will ship with LTE support across Europe, with dual-SIM versions available too. Inside there’s a Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. While the banana phone looks big in pictures, it’s relatively small with just a 2.4-inch QVGA display and a 2-megapixel camera at the rear. You’ll even get access to a revamped Snake game, and an impressive 25 days of battery standby.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is a curved glass Android flagship with no headphone jack
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered by Qualcomm’s 835 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. At the center is a 5.5-inch pOLED display (2560 x 1440) that looked like it had good viewing angles and calibration during my brief look at the device. HMD is also using a dual-camera system at the rear with a 12-megapixel primary camera and ZEISS optics. The front-facing 5-megapixel camera also has a wide-angle (84-degree) lens for selfies, and of the software will support HMD’s “bothie” mode to take a photo using both the front and rear cameras simultaneously.
FCC's Ajit Pai gets NRA award for 'courage under fire'
Net neutrality is the idea that all traffic on the internet is treated equally. In 2015, under President Barack Obama, a Democrat-led FCC passed rules that barred broadband companies from slowing or blocking access to certain websites or services. It also prohibited internet service providers from charging companies a fee to access customers more quickly.

Tesla Will Install Charging Stations for Free at Your Workplace
For workplaces, this offers a way to have electric vehicle charging installed at very little cost while offering employees a convenient way to charge their cars while at work. In this case, it's the employer who would most likely pick up the energy bill, but that could be offset by green energy tech investment. However, for apartment blocks it seems more likely the tenants would need to pay for their own energy. Even so, having the option to own and easily charge an electric vehicle overnight will be welcomed.

Manafort Left an Incriminating Paper Trail Converting PDFs to Word | Hacker News
We all leave huge incriminating paper trails to some extent. This is why privacy is so important, because we’re all committing crimes in theory. That being said Manafort looks very very guilty and his crimes, which are financially based, I think are even more reprehensible in this era of global austerity and low economic growth. Back to the privacy point, we are currently going through NIST 800-53 at work. We only need 800-171 but we thought the 800-53 standard would make us a better organization. So many things I didn’t think of. Do you have a micro-cut shredder first of all? Those Enron-esque cross-cut shredders don’t cut it anymore with open source machine learning that can easily reassemble those documents. Also, do you have an access code for your printer so the document only prints when he/she is up there, and doesn’t get left throughout the day in the tray for prying eyes? Also are your servers currently sitting in inventory up high on the shelves in case water gets into the building? So many things...

Apple devices at repair facility have called 911 over 1,500 times
Apple is working with local police to remedy a surge in unintentional emergency calls to 911 that are originating from the company’s distribution and repair center in Elk Grove, California. The influx of calls has been ongoing for months, averaging 20 accidental calls a day and totaling over 1,600 since October. 911 dispatchers hear silence and intermittent employee chatter when the calls come in.

Get ready for the Galaxy S9, Samsung's answer to the iPhone X
Take, for instance, the display. Apple removed its physical home button on the front of the device to stretch the screen across the entire front of the display. Samsung had already done that with the S8 and its "Infinity Display." Apple also integrated an OLED display for the first time with the iPhone X, allowing for a thinner screen that shows blacker blacks and more vibrant colors. Samsung has used OLED screens in its Galaxy S smartphones since the beginning of the line.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ hands-on: The devil is in the details
One final update on the camera -- the front 8-megapixel camera and the iris scanner now work together for more reliable unlocking via what Samsung calls "Intelligent Scan." According to the company's reps, the iris scanner isn't as effective in bright light as it is in the dark. With the new system, the S9 will try to sign you in with your eyes by default, but when that fails, it will use facial recognition. Unfortunately, we didn't get to test out this feature during our demo, so we'll have to wait till we get our hands on a review unit to try it.
Opinion: Killmonger's Rage Is the Hard Truth of Black Panther - IGN
Watching Michael B. Jordan’s powerful performance as Erik Killmonger reminded me of that trip and how, like the nation of Wakanda, I failed to use my resources to help someone in need. I began sympathizing with Erik for his tenacity and willingness to provide aid at any cost. Sure, it was the wrong way to go about it -- violence only begets more violence -- but from his point of view, Erik saw his quest for revenge as a necessary act. Because of my personal connection to his frustrations, he is the first villain I truly identify within the MCU. Sure, Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal of Loki has always been stellar, but it’s hard for me to relate to a demi-god with daddy issues.
Paris Goes To Court To Protect Its Pedestrian Spaces
Fortunately for the vast majority of Parisians who have benefited from Hidalgo’s plan, the mayor shows no sign of giving way. She’s criticized her opponents by claiming that for them, “car traffic takes priority over public health” and that “an urban motorway is worth more than a park in the center of the city”—neither of which could be further from the truth, and should not by any means form the basis of public policy.

The U.S. is no longer a nation of immigrants, apparently
According to CNN , the agency’s director, L. Francis Cissna, sent a letter to employees explaining the shifting mission on the grounds that the agency is responsible for ensuring “that people who are eligible for immigration benefits receive them and those who are not eligible—either because they don’t qualify or because they attempt to qualify by fraud—don’t receive them” and that “those who would do us harm are not granted immigration benefits.” Cissna also noted that the agency will “ answer to the American people. ”
Apple is working on high-end headphones that may launch as soon as this year
Kuo says the headphones will have a new design, but doesn't go into specifics. It sounds like the headphones will be similar to the over-ear headphones Apple makes through its Beats subsidiary. They would also build on the success of AirPods, Apple's wireless earbuds and carry the Apple branding, not Beats branding.

Our readers are obsessed with these robot vacuums
It’s 2018 and robots have officially taken over—or at least they're in charge while they roam around our floors, picking up everything from dirt to pet hair. Like most technology, robot vacuums are there to make our lives a little bit easier with scheduled cleanings at the press of a button—some even have smartphone apps. This makes those weekly (or monthly, we don't judge) deep, whole-house cleanings less strenuous and time consuming.

There was still influence in some areas by the conquered Gaulish tribes on the language of their conquerors. We don’t really have anything of Gaulish language left, but we can reverse engineer some things from their descendants. You see, the Celts that we think of now as the people of the British Isles were Gaulish, originally (in the sense that anyone’s originally from anywhere, I guess) from central and western Europe. So we can look at, for example, Old Irish, where they said tó to mean yes, or Welsh, where they say do to mean yes or indeed, and we can see that they derive from the Proto-Indo-European (the big mother language at whose teat very many languages both modern and ancient did suckle) word *tod, meaning “this” or “that.” (The asterisk indicates that this is a reconstructed word and we don’t know exactly what it would have been but we have a pretty damn good idea.)

Windows phone reborn: Microsoft patent hints at foldable touchscreen smartphones
The magnets themselves are bar shaped and mounted on an axis that allows them to rotate so that whenever the device is closed the polar opposites will meet and stick to each other. The patent specifically mentions the two halves being able to close with the screen either to the inside or the outside, making rotating magnets a necessity for invisible and reliable closure.

And even with the lulz, they haven't undermined their message. Instead, their channeling even the smallest bits of humor toward their greater goal: change in gun control laws in the hopes of making these school shootings a thing of the past.

And what they said is that it's kind of a dangerous cyber environment, that Wi-Fi may not be all it's cracked up to be. Communications may not be what you expect in terms of security. But I think, essentially, you can bring it down to this, and that is, if you're going to be visiting the games, if you're going to be there as a participant, as a corporate visitor, whatever, the responsibility for your cybersecurity, whether you're communicating with friends or you're communicating with your company back home, that responsibility is yours, and you have to do some things to make sure that you're not leaking information unnecessarily.

Trusting the Autorouter
An autorouter is a magic tool that many think of as a way to allow an engineer to complete a PCB design with just one click. Sadly, this is a misconception. An autorouter is an EDA tool add-on intended to reduce the cost of producing a finished PCB layout, but an autorouter is just a tool, and it will do what the designer tells it do…. therefore the designer needs to understand how the autorouter works in order to direct it properly.

Nintendo now allows Switch user reviews on game pages
Nintendo has offered game recommendations for Wii games in the past, but this appears to kick things up a notch. They won't always be helpful -- people tend to leave product reviews when they're either ecstatic or furious, so you probably won't see many nuanced, moderate takes. Nonetheless, it's nice to have an official user review option, whether you're determined to share your thoughts or just want an alternative to store pages and professional reviews.
