Samsung Galaxy Fold assessment: damaged dream

This is going to be a weird review.It’ll be weird because, as I’m sure you’ve heard, several reviewers have experienced their Galaxy Fold review unit screens breaking a day or two after receiving them.

15 sport streaming companies you may strive earlier than Google Stadia arrives

Streaming games from remote internet servers could be the future of the video game industry — or part of that future, anyhow. By removing the need to own a PC or console to play the latest, most demanding blockbuster games, the medium as a whole could become more accessible. That is, if you have a good internet connection.
