The South Korean giant finally took the wraps off the much awaited Samsung Galaxy S10 series. The 10th iteration of Samsung’s Galaxy Series smartphone includes the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10E. As a Successor to last year’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, we also have the affordable Galaxy S10E in tow.

The new Galaxy S10 series is the result of the company’s years-long effort to eliminate bezels and increase one-handed use. The Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus features a 6.1 and 6.4-inch display respectively. Though the screens are larger than the predecessors, the phone size is just a tad more. In fact, the Galaxy S10 Plus is slightly shorter than the S9 Plus despite having a 0.2 inch larger display.

The displays are identical with 1440-pixel full 19:9 OLED panel with Samsung’s Dynamic AMOLED branding. The screens come with a punch-hole cutout that holds the front camera. The S10 has a circular one while the S10 have a wider hole for two front cameras.

There is also a new in-display fingerprint sensor that uses ultrasonic waves. The company claims that it is the most advanced sensor on the market and more reliable, harder to spoof and to have a higher performance than the optical-based scanners. The body is made of Aluminium with curved sides though the S10 Plus will also be available with a ceramic back option.

The smartphones house the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Samsung’s Exynos processor in some regions. It features between 8GB and 12GB of RAM and up to 12GB internal storage with further expandable memory option. The S10 Plus goes as high as 1TB internal storage.

In the optics, both the smartphone feature a triple camera setup with a 12MP wide-angle lens, 12MP telephoto lens and an ultra-wide 16MP lens. There are a couple of new features like the “Scene Optimizer” that can identify 30 different settings and a “Shot Suggestion” feature to fix poorly framed photos. There is 4K UHD recording support and can also record in HDR10+. On the front, there is a 10MP sensor while there is an extra 8MP sensor on the S10 Plus. Though the Portrait Mode feature is also available on the S10, it will not be as advanced like on the S10 Plus.

The smartphones run on Samsung One UI on top of Android 9 Pie. The “un-programmable” Bixby button is still there and comes with new routines. The S10 gets a 3,400 mAh battery while the Plus variant gets a 4,100 mAh battery. They come with Wireless Charging support and have the ability to charge other secondary devices like the new Galaxy Buds wireless headphones through the rear panels. Connectivity options Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, LTE Cat.30 and 2Gbps LTE which is not 5G to be clear.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus will be available for pre-order from February 21 and will start shipping from March 8. The S10 and the S10 Plus will come at a starting price of $899.99 and $999.99 respectively. As a part of a pre-bonus offer, customers will be getting a pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds.

Entrepreneur and DJ: Meet Christian Deciga

Published

Everipedia is the “encyclopedia of everything” of the internet. It can be viewed as an extension of Wikipedia, but it varies in a few notable ways. It is the more open alternative to Wikipedia that Paul Graham, founder of Y Combinator, requested be built in his “Startup Ideas We’d Like to Fund” blog in July of 2008. Everipedia provides incentives for editors to edit and create articles actively and ensure that they are accurate. Editors are rewarded with “IQ,” which is a cryptocurrency and the basis of the blockchain platform that Everipedia is built on. Apart from rewarding editors for their contributions, Everipedia also generally focuses on articles that Wikipedia deems “non-notable”. They do not believe in censoring any topics and offer more relaxations in their guidelines than English Wikipedia. Additionally, since this is a global decentralized encyclopedia built on the EOS.io blockchain, it means that the government cannot censor the website’s content. Presently, Everipedia has over a million page views a month, global active editors in places such as Nigera, Venezuela, and Korea.

Everipedia may have millions of visitors to the site now, but this was not always the case. Early on in their journey, the founders of Everipedia had difficulty finding investors and driving traffic to their website. This was when Christian Deciga stepped in. In October 2015, while studying to attain a bachelor’s degree in computer science at California State University, San Bernardino, he met Mahbod Moghadam and Sam Kazemian of Everipedia during a tech talk at nearby Cal Poly Pomona in October 2015, Deciga became interested in the project. In December of 2015, he dropped out of university and moved into the company’s first headquarters in Westwood, Los Angeles (PH2 at 972 Hilgard Ave. on UCLA campus) to become a founding member and work on the project full time. Due to clever ways of making Everipedia articles go viral without paid marketing on social media platforms, and other unique tactics, Deciga helped drive more traffic to the website during its early days. With his efforts, soon Everipedia began to see millions of page views a month. The growth had spiked from less than 80 concurrent users on Google Analytics to over 1000 users concurrently. Everipedia articles were also being used as sources by news publications (The New York Times even cited an Everipedia entry during President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign). He was dubbed “Christian Christ”by Mahbod Moghadam as his tactics helped bring traffic to Everipedia. Hence, Deciga’s efforts and work ethic gave Everipedia a fighting chance that it needed to take off to the next level and reach milestones.

With the help of Deciga’s efforts, the founders had data and impressive traffic numbers to show to their investors. By the end of that same year, the Everipedia team grew bigger and better, and the Westwood penthouse was filled with people working on this project.

Now, with a 30 million venture investment from Michael Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital Fund backing the project, Everipedia has plans to continue growing internationally and further its mission based on knowledge and DeFi (decentralized finance). The founding team, which includes Deciga, has plans to launch more decentralized dApps on the IQ network.

The latest dApp released on the IQ network is an easy to use prediction market called PredIQt. The knowledge market allows users to purchase and trade shares in the outcomes of future events. Users can earn money by correctly predicting whether or not any given event actually happens.

In addition to powering a decentralized global encyclopedia, the IQ token now also powers knowledge markets and the additional DeFi applications that will be built into PredIQt.

But this is not all for Deciga. Apart from being an entrepreneur and investor, Christian Deciga is also an electronic dance music producer and DJ who is receiving producer mentorship from his North Garland High School classmate and established EDM artist Juyen Sebulba of the duo Psycho Boys Club signed to Yellow Claw’s Barong Family label.

What Irritates the Outlander Series Actress Claire Fraser about her Co-Star?

Published

It is obvious that co-stars working with each other for so long will have problems with one another. The Outlander franchise presents such a case.

The Outlander season 5 ended with lots of stuff going on causing its fans to be dumbstruck whether it’s the kidnapping and rape of  Claire Fraser ( Caitriona Balfe) by Lionel Brown  (Ned Dennehy) or being her family plotting against themselves. But as it came out to much surprise for the fans, there is a lot of stuff going between the members behind the scene too.

Based on the books of  Diana  Gabaldon the series’ first season was premiered by the STARZ network in 2014. The story is a pretty decent blend of historical fiction, romance, and especially science fiction which tingles a sensation for all those sci-fi enthusiasts.

The story is about a married combat nurse from the great war who mysteriously time travels back to 1743 where her life is threatened. The protagonist is trapped in two different time frames centuries apart. She must do everything possible to stay alive. With its five seasons released it had become one of the most popular shows by STARZ. The success and popularity of the Outlander franchise is now forcing its producers to plan of making its spin-off.

The fifth season of the series is rather devastating for the fans as well as for the protagonist Claire( Caitriona Balfe) as she was kidnapped by Lionel Brown  (Ned Dennehy)  and raped, all because she educated Lionel’ s wise about reproductive health who was being abused by him. This hurt Lionel’ s manly ego which caused him having grudges with the protagonist. She was by her husband but later on even before everything could remain calm for a while, it was seen that her family members were working against themselves.

What Irritates the Outlander series Actress Claire about her Co-Star?

But these conflicts don’t remain hidden out for long. It is obvious that two people working with each other so long will have issues. The issues will come out in public someday.  Caitriona and Sam were asked about the stuff they don’t like about each other. Responding to this query  Caitriona said: “His timekeeping can sometimes irk me when I’m left standing waiting for him quite often.” However later she even confessed that due to her bossy attitude maybe irks him about her. She added, “I probably boss him around a bit so that probably irks him about me.”

But she also revealed that she and Sam sorted things between them early itself. She said: “But we made a very conscious decision in the very beginning when we started the show that we were the only two people who would understand each other’s experience.

She believes that they have worked and supported each other throughout the series. She said”And that we had each other’s backs throughout this because we didn’t know what it was going to be, but we knew that we had to stick together as a team. We have done that and it’s so important.”

Claire appreciates that she had such a partner in this series.”I can’t imagine having done a show of this magnitude for this long without having a partner with us, and it’s made it easier 100 percent, and I’m very grateful for that.”

Anna Kendrick’s Love Life Episodes Are Now Hitting HBO Max A Lot Sooner?

Published

on

Love Life is the first scripted series for adults to go out on the HBO Max streaming service. It is amiable, light, and – flaws aside – easily bingeable.

What do we know about Love Life?

The story focuses on Darby played by Anna Kendrick. She is a young woman whose perfectly rom-com career rise in the art musuem and auction-house world in New York City.

We then follow Darby from her feckless and underemployed youth toward an adulthood marked by a bit more melancholy. This, with a lot of care.

 

“Love Life” is amply watchable. The Magnus plotline’s sprawl defying the rules the show itself has set forth. It kind of  epitomizes this : He’s a character more compelling than anything else on screen. But his awfulness makes Darby’s ongoing tolerance seem beyond relief only if there weren’t so much time to fill and she weren’t a central character who’s defined by her lack of definition.

The series is too low-fi to generate the sort of fireworks for the HBO Max launch that, say,” The Morning Show” did for Apple TV Plus at launch . It is also not quite a HBO show.

What do we know about the release of Love Life?

Love Life’s first three episodes premiered to a generally positive audience response. Since the viewers were liking what they were seeing, HBO Max  execs decided to drop remaining episodes of Love Life in batches instead of dropping weekly episodes. So, episodes 4-6 will debut on June 4. The remaining four episodes will be released on June 11.

 

Here’s what Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, had to say :

“HBO Max audiences have fallen in love with Love Life. It’s wonderfully gratifying to see that fans have immediately connected to the show and we are accelerating the release of episodes to meet their demand for more. We thrilled to see Love Life emerge as one of the top performers of all content on Max and we love to be able to reward viewers who started watching on day one.”

For more on this, stay hooked.
