Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, 5G Galaxy Z Flip will launch in August 2020

Image
Samsung is expected to launch two new foldable smartphones in the second half of the year. An affordable foldable handset model is expected to hit the market next year, industry insiders said on Sunday. Samsung is expected to present the Galaxy Fold 2 and the 5G variant of the Galaxy Z Flip together with its flagship phablet Galaxy Note 20 at an event in August, the news agency Yonhap reported, citing the industry sources. But his affordable foldable smartphone, probably called the Galaxy Fold Lite, is unlikely to make its debut at the event, they said.
The South Korean technology giant was said to have released a version of its foldable smartphone that costs almost half the price of a normal Galaxy Fold. Technical experts have predicted that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a 7.7-inch screen and a 6.23-inch cover display when unfolded, both of which are larger than the 7.3-inch or 4.6-inch displays of the predecessor. Samsung is expected to use ultra-thin glass (UTG) for the Galaxy Fold 2,…

How to switch from Android to iPhone without losing everything 


We explain how to transfer contacts from Android phone to iPhone. How to transfer applications from Android to iPhone. How to transfer photos from Android to iPhone. And, yes, how to transfer music from iPhone to Android. Basically, how to switch from Android to iPhone, right? 
If you're an Android user considering switching to an iPhone, you may be concerned about the transfer process. The good news is that the transfer iPhone contacts to Android phone really could not be simpler. It turns out that Google is good at these things. And the files are very similar. The basic principle consists of a backup or cloud or a desktop machine, and then sync with iPhone. So let's get into it.

Transfer contacts from Android to iPhone: Google use the simplest form 
There are two ways to transfer contacts from Android to iOS. We will outline the bottom two, but if you've been using your Android phone for any length of time,…

Apple One-Click Link U2 remove junk from iTunes Marks fault Marketing Textbook

Execution is everything

Musical tastes are personal. And it seems that force-feeding people a new album from U2, unsolicited, doesn’t go over well.
Apple giving away U2′s new Songs of Innocence is in itself not a bad thing. But there are two problems. One, the album is poorly reviewed – think Paul McCartney “Wonderful Christmastime” rather than Abbey Road. Two, because the album simply appeared in purchased music – and because iTunes (cleverly enough) displays what you’ve purchased from iCloud – it showed up in people’s collections when it didn’t belong.
So, we’ve learned something. This doesn’t work. And as always, you can’t really buy marketing. That is, sure, Aphex Twin rented a blimp, but in the end, they had more successful viral marketing because they let their fans choose to spread their new release. U2 tried to force that promotion, and even though Apple and U2 are loved by many people, the combination comes across as corporate and inauthentic. Peter Cohen shouts at the Inter…

Microsoft In Talks To Buy Shoutcast And Winamp From AOL

Image
Looks like the llama may not get off so easily after all. AOL yesterday announced that it was shutting down Winamp, media playing software for Windows and Android devices that it picked up through its 1999, $80 million acquisition of Nullsoft in 1999. But today Techcrunch has learned that AOL is talks with Microsoft to sell Winamp, along with Shoutcast, a media streaming service also developed by Nullsoft. We have also learned that AOL has been planning to announce the closure of Shoutcast next week.
AOL has declined to comment for this story, and we are still waiting to hear back from Microsoft with a response. From what we understand, the deal is not yet finalized, with AOL and Microsoft still working out the price. It could also be very wishful thinking from those intent on trying to save both services.
AOL did not give any guidance yesterday on what would happen with Shoutcast.

If this is correct, it would represent an interesting, and strange, twist in the story.
