Samsung will announce the Galaxy S8 on March 29

On Sunday the company sent invitations to the press for an event in New York City where it will announce the Galaxy S8, its first major product since the Galaxy Note 7 debacle last year. The event takes place Wednesday, March 29.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S3 is basically just another Note tablet

I don't have any complaints about the Tab S3 as a media machine, either -- it packs a quartet of speakers tuned by AKG and in our brief time with the device, it seemed more and adequately loud, even when surrounded by curious journalists. That 9.7-inch AMOLED screen is easy on the eyes too, with great viewing angles and support for HDR content -- those amplified colors really pop thanks to Samsung's historically great screen tech. Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot of HDR content we could test the Tab S3 with (just a few clips from 1,000 Ways to Die in the West, for some reason), but the difference was immediately clear. If you're already stockpiling your HDR content in hopes of finding the right portable screen for it all, you'll want to keep an eye on this thing.

Samsung and Oculus announce the wand-like Gear VR Controller

The Gear VR controller, which was developed by Facebook’s Oculus division, looks a little like a shrunken Nintendo Wii controller. It sports a prominent touch-sensitive trackpad that doubles as a clickable selection button. Below it are home, select, volume, and back buttons; on the underside is a trigger; and near the bottom is a wrist strap to prevent users from loosing their grip during “vigorous play.”

Samsung's Galaxy Book crams desktop power in a portable body

Like the just-announced Tab S3, both Galaxy Books will support the new S Pen, which can detect up to 4,096 levels of pressure with its fine 0.7mm nib. S Pen fans will find some familiar features here, such as Screen Off Memo and the Air Command shortcut menu for outlining screenshots and annotating PDFs. A new function that Samsung believes will excite artists and designers is the pen's ability to understand the angle at which you are tilting it. So say you are holding the stylus at a 60-degree angle from the screen. Compatible programs, such as Adobe Photoshop, can integrate that slant into your brushstrokes. During my testing, this wasn't working very well: Photoshop thought I was holding the brush upright, even though I was holding it horizontally.

Nokia is back from the dead with a trio of pure Android phones

Nokia’s phones are making a comeback. HMD Global, the Finnish company that licensed the rights to produce Nokia phones, is unveiling a trio of Nokia-branded Android devices today that are designed to cater for the mid-range of the smartphone market. They’re not the premium Lumia-like devices we’ve seen in recent history, but they have one thing in common: pure Android. HMD is taking a fairly unique approach, just like Motorola, to these Nokia phones by offering up Google’s Android Nougat OS in its purest form. That means no bundled third-party apps, no UI customizations, and regular security updates.

Oscars 2017: how to watch the Academy Awards online

It's Oscars time, everyone. Football teams have gone back into hibernation and the fools gold that is the Golden Globes has become a little more than faded memory. Tonight, it's time for the big leagues: the 89th Academy Awards, as Hollywood rolls out the red carpet to take over TV (and Twitter) with incredible outfits, heartbreaking snubs , and Cinderella story upsets in pursuit of those all-important golden statutes.

And while the gigabit technology isn't 5G, it's clear that ZTE wants to wrap itself in the 5G hype, one of the hottest trends in the wireless industry that's supposed to transform our society through faster, more ubiquitous coverage. ZTE calls it a "5uper Generation" (it's pronounced "super") phone and talks about its strength in the 5G and pre-5G fields.

According to TMZ , who first reported the loss (later confirmed by People Magazine ), Paxton died after complications from surgery. The 61-year-old actor had a string of hits with films like Aliens and Twister, and was more recently seen on Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D .

10 Games Every Nintendo Wii U Player Needs

Nintendo's next console, the mysterious NX, may be approaching faster than we think. But buying a Wii U right now will give you access to free online multiplayer, Wii backwards compatibility, and most importantly a slowly growing library of modern Nintendo classics like the 10 games featured on this list. From old favorites like Mario and Donkey Kong, to sexy witches, to trigger-happy squid kids, this console is full of pleasant surprises.

New Nokia 3310 (2017) review

Meanwhile the display feels like a real blast from the past, but it’s a significant upgrade over the old 3310. The new Nokia 3310 has a 2.4-inch, 240 x 320 full color display which is bright, but hardly crisp. Of course you’re paying very little for the phone so it’s not an issue, but don’t go trying to tap the menu items. Touchscreen this ain’t. 

LG G6 pictures: Waterproof, with a whole lotta screen

Sony has sold nearly 1 million PlayStation VR headsets

A sales victory wouldn't exactly be surprising. PSVR requires a much smaller investment than its rivals -- even if you splurge on a PS4 Pro and a full VR bundle , you're spending far less than it takes to get a high-end PC VR headset and a computer powerful enough to handle it. And that's not including the physical space you need for room-scale VR experiences with PCs. Combine that with a healthy game library and console VR is likely to remain the front-runner for a while, at least until prices for headsets and VR-worthy PCs drop to the point where they're no longer luxuries.

LG G6 First Impressions: Back to the Basics

Smartphone design just isn’t as interesting as it used to be ; top phones are all basically beautiful slabs of glass and metal with glimmering displays that make you go “ahhhhh.” Last year, in an effort to combat the boredom, LG launched the G5 , an ambitious disaster of an Android phone, which was most notable for its central gimmick, a “magic slot” which allowed you to plug-in modular accessories, like cameras and speakers. At its core, the tech was poorly designed, but worse was the fact that nobody cared about being able to trick out a phone with modules.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 review

The Tab S3 has a lot in common with 2015's slate, with some good spec upgrades. The screen doesn't look as bright as it could, but the new design and focus on productivity could pay dividends. However, Android still isn't the best operating system for a tablet, and there's not a lot Samsung can do to push past that.

Staedtler and Samsung made an old-school pencil-like S Pen

Along with a pair of new tablets and some 5G equipment, Samsung unveiled a fresh new version of its S Pen stylus that looks incredibly familiar. The new stylus is just like German pencil maker Staedtler's Noris stylud , except it will most likely do everything Samsung's pen can. That includes detecting up to 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, and working with the new slates to write and store memos even when the screen is off, as well as outline screenshots or annotate PDF documents. Nothing was announced on its price and availability yet, but those looking to mask their digital nativeness should be excited by the new option.

DJI's Matrice 200 UAV line is built for work

On the hardware side, the new line offers the same dual battery setup (which provides up to 35 minutes flight time)and 3D integrated imaging as the Inspire 2. Similarly, they can be operated with the dual controller method that allows one person to control the drone's flight while the other operates the cameras. The M200s can carry a variety of imaging accessories including the Zenmuse X4S, X5S or the FLIR-capable XT. They can also handle the Z30, which offers 30x optical zoom plus an additional 6x digital zoom.

32 Amazon's Alexa is now also a Moto Mod

At its Mobile World Congress keynote, Amazon’s Director of Alexa Voice Service Jon Kirk announced that it would partner with Motorola to create a speaker Moto Mod that essentially turns your phone into a portable Amazon Echo. In a concept video, the Mod is stuck to the back of a Moto Z, and users can place their phone screen side down to use it as a speaker. It’ll even have the blue ombre glow around the edges to let you know when you’ve activated Alexa. The Alexa Moto Mod is expected to launch later this year.

The company is also teasing new "in-depth coaching programs," which will span eight weeks and include personalised health and fitness plans.

Samsung Galaxy Book has its sights set on the Microsoft Surface

The Microsoft Surface is a great tablet-hybrid because it totally nails a productivity-centered design that's both powerful and compact. By including the detachable keyboard and S-Pen stylus in the Galaxy Book's base price, Samsung aims for the same target, but as a complete out-of-the-box solution. (With the Surface, you get the pen in the box, but the keyboard is sold separately.)

So we're saluting the films you might not expect to have won an Oscar.

O.J.: Made in America wins Best Documentary at the 2017 Oscars

The seven-and-a-half-hour film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January of last year, and debuted in theatrical limited release last May. The documentary incorporates 72 new interviews with archival news footage to chronicle the entire career of O.J. Simpson, starting with his first season playing football at the University of Southern California and ending with his infamous 1995 murder trial. The documentary sets all of this in the broad context of American sports culture, pop culture, and systemic racism, as well as within the rise of reality TV and recent calls for criminal justice reform.

"Thank you to the Academy. You know there's one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered, one place, and that's the graveyard. People ask me all the time, 'what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola?' And I say exhume those bodies, exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dreamed big and never saw those dreams to fruition; people who fell in love and lost. I became an artist, and thank god I did, because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life. So here's to August Wilson who exhumed and exalted the ordinary people."

How to watch the Oscars if you don't have cable

The same deal applies to PlayStation Vue -- you'll need to live in one of a handful of markets to watch a live stream of ABC and the Oscars. When you go to the PlayStation Vue site, it locates your market and displays the plans available to you. If you are staring at a lineup of its Slim packages, then you don't live in an area where you can get live TV and can watch shows only On Demand (read: after they have aired live). If you live in an area where a live stream of ABC is available, the cheapest $39.99-a-month Access package includes ABC.

Suicide Squad just won an Oscar

Well, it happened: Suicide Squad just won an Oscar. The award went to Alessandro Bertolazzi, Giorgio Gregorini, and Christopher Nelson for Best Makeup and Hairstyling. It’s unusual for a movie like Suicide Squad , which many critics found messy , if not disastrous, to be recognized at the Academy Awards, but this award often goes to the most obvious choice. And Jared Leto’s Joker was nothing if not wearing makeup.

The new Moto G5s trade fun colors for mature looks

When Lenovo/Motorola first revealed the 4th-generation Moto G and Moto G Plus last year, it did so at a surprisingly secretive launch event in India. That was probably just as well: they were perfectly decent mid-range phones that didn't seem to excite the way earlier G's did. The swanky interior of the W Hotel in Barcelona seems to fit the new G5 and G5 Plus a little better. Lenovo still wanted to build a set of reasonably priced mid-range phones, but it's clear the company was angling to give the G series something of a premium makeover. This year is all about cleaner lines and metal bodies, but I wonder if the G5 and G5 Plus didn't lose a bit of character in the redesign.
