Entry-level Galaxy S10 to have Infinity-O screen, side-placed fingerprint scanner

Samsung should announce a trio of new Galaxy S10 flaghips next year - two models with curved 5.8-inch and 6.44-inch displays - and a third with a flat 5.8-inch display. Thanks to leaker Ben Geskin we may have some new clues to clarify that last one. Dubbed the budget Galaxy S10 with model number SM-G970F, the most basic device in the lineup will have a flat Infinity-O display, a fingerprint scanner on the side (not an in-display one), a dual camera and come with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM coupled to 64GB or 128GB of storage. According to Geskin...

Satellite images show how the Camp Fire destroyed entire towns and killed dozens of people

A satellite view of Paradise, California, on November 8, 2018. The Camp Fire is now the most destructive and deadliest California wildfire in the state's history. It scorched the entire town of Paradise, which was home to about 27,000 people. Satellites orbiting the Earth took pictures of Paradise and the nearby town of Magalia before the fire hit and while the area burned. Paradise used to be a small town in the foothills of California's Sierra Nevada mountains with a population of about 27,000 people. That is, until Friday. Within about 24 hours after the Camp Fire broke out, practically...

AI software helped NASA dream up this spider-like interplanetary lander

Using a new type of design process, engineers at software company Autodesk and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory came up with a new interplanetary lander concept that could explore distant moons like Europa and Enceladus. Its slim design weighs less than most of the landers that NASA has already sent to other planets and moons. Autodesk announced its new innovative lander design today at the company’s conference in Las Vegas — revealing a spacecraft that looks like a spider woven from metal. The company says the idea to create the vehicle was sparked when Autodesk approached NASA to validate a lander...

Essential shows signs of life with launch of $149 headphone dongle

Essential isn’t dead, not yet at least. The handset maker from Android co-founder Andy Rubin, who’s now at the center of an explosive controversy over the mishandling of sexual harassment claims at Google that prompted a worldwide employee walkout, has quietly released its next product. It’s the $149 magnetic headphone jack adapter Essential promised way back in September 2017. The company first announced in June that the accessory would start shipping in the summer, but it apparently missed that deadline. The product is officially called the Audio Adapter HD, and it’s quite pricey at $149, which is about 30 percent...
