Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price drops to a crazy low $650 in the latest eBay deal

As good as it is (and it’s a darn good phone, as we discovered months ago when reviewing it in great detail), the Galaxy Note 9 was never worth $1,000. Fortunately, both Samsung and third-party retailers like Best Buy and Amazon seemed to acknowledge that fairly quickly, trying many different ways to sweeten the deal in the face of intensifying competition.Right now, you can get the S Pen-wielding powerhouse from its manufacturer with a bunch of gifts valued at over $300, while Best Buy’s early Black Friday deal lowers the handset’s actual price by $300 with Verizon and Sprint payment...

Frigid planet detected orbiting nearby star

A frozen and dimly lit planet dubbed a “Super-Earth,” may be orbiting the closest single star to our solar system, astronomers said on Wednesday, based on two decades of scientific observations. The planet, estimated to be at least 3.2 times more massive than Earth, was spotted circling Barnard’s Star, a type of relatively cool and low-mass star called a red dwarf, about 6 light-years away from our solar system, comparatively close in cosmic terms. It is believed to orbit Barnard’s Star every 233 days. Planets orbiting stars beyond our solar system are called exoplanets. Nearly 4,000 have been discovered. The...

Android Pie is still at 0 percent, but Google expects its expansion to outpace Oreo soon

Originally unveiled with the Android O build back when the Oreo name wasn’t even official, Project Treble basically aimed to make it easier and faster for manufacturers to update devices to a new OS version.But to be perfectly honest, we haven’t really noticed an improvement in Oreo delivery times compared to the spread of Nougat or earlier Android flavors. Some OEMs have done a better job than others updating their new and old phones, contributing to a modest 21.5 percent combined market share for Android 8.0 and 8.1 as of October 26.Things look even worse for Android Pie, which still...

Leaked Moto G7 press render showcases waterdrop notch and dual cameras

The Moto G6 series is just seven months old but that isn’t stopping Lenovo from preparing its next-generation devices. And just over a month after a bunch of CAD-based renders revealed the Moto G7’s design, today an official press render has leaked out confirming the updated look.Just like the Moto G6, the Moto G7’s body is carved out of both glass and aluminum. However, the more traditional 18:9 display has been replaced by a much taller panel that adopts a small, waterdrop-like notch. This is paired with slim side bezels and a significantly smaller chin that no longer includes a...

Worries over CO2 emissions from intensifying wildfires

Rising numbers of extreme wildfires could result in a significant increase in CO₂ emissions, scientists warn.That could mean attaining the Paris climate agreement's goal of keeping global temperature rise well below 2C could become harder, they say. Present emission-cut pledges by countries are projected to increase the average global temperature rise by more than 3C by the end of the century.That would lead to dangerous climate change impacts, experts say.These include sea level rise, drought, wildfires, among other extreme events. "We can't neglect the emissions from wildfires," says Ramon Vallejo, a scientist specialising on fire ecology with the University of...

Moto G7 with Snapdragon 660 and 4/64GB memory on board passes FCC

That's not the first time we see the Moto G7 at FCC, but it's a more complete listing now. And it appears that this time around, the devices have different model numbers XT1965-3 and XT1952-2 - perhaps designated for different carriers or markets. More interestingly, the listings feature a Snapdragon 660 paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of memory. There's also a schematic of the phone itself revealing NFC support and dual-camera setup - not all that surprising, to be honest. According to the sheet, the Moto G7 will be offered worldwide with no significant difference between the SKUs...
