Are you ready for the Samsung Galaxy Fold?THE Samsung Galaxy Fold took the thunder away from the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup during early Thursday’s Unpacked 2019 event in San Francisco. The first bendable smartphone released by a major tech company is supposed to go on sale late April with a $1,980 or over PHP102,000 price tag. This can mean that our wallets may have folded on the Fold right at this point. But in an era where people hold on to their smartphones longer, the Galaxy Fold is still a leap. To which direction, only time will tell. But it’s safe to assume that bendy launches are bound to happen sooner than expected. Interestingly, Samsung did not allow journalists to play with the Fold. Unlike the tenth anniversary smartphone S10, which we has the chance to play with during the simultaneous Unpacked event before dawn last February 21 at Shangri-La The Fort, where Samsung gathered local media and industry partners like Smart Communications to experience the S10 … [Read more...] about Are you ready for the Samsung Galaxy Fold?

By Joshua Fruhlinger WSJ Fri., Feb. 1, 2019 JUST LAST YEAR, I bought a 65-inch 4K TV. It has a gorgeous picture: deep blacks and dynamic, true-to-life colors. I can finally watch all that 4K ultrahigh definition (UHD) content newly on offer from Netflix, Prime Video and iTunes. It’s a glorious thing, and it feels a lot like the early days of high definition: Everything is deliciously detailed, real, beautiful. While gloating to a friend about the refreshing resolution on my relatively new TV, regaling her with an enthusiastic account of watching “Planet Earth II” in envelope-pushing ultra-definition, a curious grin crossed her face. “But aren’t 8K TVs available now?” she interrupted. “Aren’t they a lot better? Shouldn’t I just wait for that?” It was an excellent question, and I was crushed. Things are accelerating at shocking rates when it comes to TV technology. HD had a strong run after it was widely … [Read more...] about 4K vs. 8K: Which TV is Right for You?

You Can’t Always Tell From the Labels Supported by Despite federal legislation passed 15 years ago, food labels don’t always alert consumers to allergens that may be present in packaged goods. ByEric Athas Jan. 28, 2019 When you’re shopping for someone who has a food allergy, a trip to the grocery store is like a police investigation. Each product must be scrutinized. Labels are examined, each ingredient studied. My 5-year-old son, Alexander, is allergic to almonds and hazelnuts, so my wife and I spend a lot of time trying to decipher food labels. If you miss something, even one word, you risk an allergic reaction. Although federal law requires manufacturers to include allergen warnings on prepackaged foods, it’s not always clear which products … [Read more...] about Which Allergens Are in Your Food?

Around 14 years ago, the photographer Bill Bamberger came across a basketball hoop in Nags Head, North Carolina, while he was driving down the coast in his home state. There wasn’t anything particularly special about it, but he liked how the yellow of the hoop post matched the bright shutters on the rental house next to it, and he liked that he could see the hoop as part of the coastal landscape. As he traveled around the U.S. and abroad for work, he began taking more images of the same type of courts: Free of people, and fully immersed in their local context. That first photograph became a series of over 22,000 images collected under the title HOOPS, around 70 of which will soon be on display at the National Building Museum in D.C. Most of Bamberger’s work focuses on people and communities; one of his most well-known series, Closing, documents workers in the final days of a furniture factory in Mebane, North Carolina. Photographing basketball hoops “was a chance to … [Read more...] about These serene photos of global basketball hoops take you on a trip around the world
