The Galaxy S9 you can’t buy will be faster than most Android flagships this year

%name The Galaxy S9 you can’t buy will be faster than most Android flagships this year by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

A few days ago, we saw a bunch of Galaxy S9 benchmark scores pop up, including leaked and official ones. It started with a leak showing Geekbench scores for the Snapdragon 845 version of the handset, which were quickly confirmed by the early Snapdragon 845 reviews that hit the web.

Immediately after that, the first Galaxy S9 Geekbench benchmark for the Exynos 9810 version was leaked, suggesting that the international model will be a lot more powerful than the US-bound one. A fresh leak reinforces that idea. Samsung’s new chip seems to be much closer to Apple’s A11 Bionic than the Snapdragon 845. That means the Galaxy S9 you can’t buy in the States might be faster than most of this year’s Android flagships, as many of them will be powered by Qualcomm’s mobile platform.

Samsung’s screen-carrying drone will save you from ever holding your phone

%name Samsung’s screen carrying drone will save you from ever holding your phone by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Wouldn’t it be cool to be able to control a drone with your eyes or voice? Samsung, apparently, is considering the creation of such flying devices, which would be able to interpret your gestures, but also eye movements, and voice commands.

It may be a while until we see such devices in stores if that ever happens. A more grim possibility for the technology is advertising, the kind of ad experiences that follows you around in stores or on the street. What’s certain is that Samsung is studying pairing displays with drone technology.

WSJ report that the iPhone is floundering in Asia is way off base

%name WSJ report that the iPhone is floundering in Asia is way off base by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

A new report from The Wall Street Journal relays that the iPhone X’s hefty $1,000 price tag is hindering adoption in a number of Asian countries. In turn, Asian consumers are increasingly turning to more wallet-friendly alternatives from Chinese-based smartphone manufacturers such as Xiaomi.

While iPhone market share in countries like Thailand and Vietnam have either remained steady or declined, the market share for rival devices have increased dramatically.

If simply playing Super Mario games isn’t enough and you want to dig deeper into the history of the franchise, look no further than the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia, which Kotaku says is coming stateside later this year. First released in Japan a few years ago, the Mario Bros. tome will be published by Dark Horse Books in the United States, which is the same publisher that handled Nintendo’s three Legend of Zelda books in recent years.

In the middle of last year, Elon Musk announced that he had “verbal government approval” to build a Washington DC to New York City Hyperloop that would shuttle passengers between the two cities in just 29 minutes.

The plan was classic Musk-level audacity, but one thing that was also quintessentially Musk was the lack of details. “Verbal government approval” doesn’t mean much, and without any hard plans or route guidance to go off, most people filed the plan away in the Things Elon Says drawer.

Apple ‘didn’t test the HomePod enough,’ design experts claim

%name Apple ‘didn’t test the HomePod enough,’ design experts claim by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

The HomePod, a $349 smart speaker that signaled Apple’s opening salvo in the war against Amazon Echo and Google Home, is off to a bad start. Despite reviews that stressed fantastic sound from such a small speaker, the HomePod failed to sell out, likely hurt by a poor voice assistant and a lack of standard features like multi-room pairing.

To make bad things even worse, it was revealed last week that the speaker can leave a white ring on some wooden surfaces. Apple tried to downplay the issue, saying that it’s ‘not unusual‘ for a speaker to do that, but by that point, the ‘Ring of doom’ narrative was already too strong.

There’s something wrong with NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter

%name There’s something wrong with NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

NASA has had an incredible streak of good luck as of late with spacecraft that have far outlived their expectations. Cassini at Saturn, the Opportunity rover on Mars, and several other pieces of high-tech space hardware have performed for much longer than was initially expected of them. Unfortunately, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which was launched in 2005 and has delivered more data on the Red Planet than any other Mars mission, is starting to cause some headaches.

According to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the spacecraft has been put into “precautionary standby status” after it alerted its handlers of low battery voltage. The craft is equipped with solar panels that power its instruments, but when it swings to the dark side of the planet it relies on rechargeable batteries to keep it up and running. Now, NASA has to figure out exactly what is wrong, and do so from over 30 million miles away.
