The Samsung Galaxy S20 needs to fix this one big problem with the Galaxy S10

If rumors are to be believed, the Samsung Galaxy S20 is set to be one of the most impressive devices of the year, with incredible specs in the camera, hardware, battery and design departments. What's wrong with the Samsung Galaxy S10 wireless power sharing? When I was at a concert with a few co-workers, one of them needed to charge their Samsung Galaxy Note 10, so I offered my fully-charged Samsung Galaxy S10 5G with its reverse wireless charging to give the Note a boost. The Samsung Galaxy S20

Latest iOS 13.3.1 beta lets you fully disable location tracking on the iPhone 11

Apple often makes a point about how much it cares about user privacy, and a new feature coming in iOS 13.3.1 is specifically intended to give iPhone 11 owners extra peace of mind about one area of privacy in particular – location tracking.

Leaked image offers another hint of 100x digital zoom on the Galaxy S20 Ultra

Not only that, but the image posted by tipster Ishan Agarwal on Twitter makes another mention of the 100x digital zoom that's supposedly coming to the most powerful and most expensive S20 in the range. It appears that the Galaxy S20 Ultra is going to have a very impressive quad-lens camera attached on the back. Digital zoom, meanwhile, uses software trickery to make educated guesses about details in images, and where pixels should be put as a picture gets bigger. It's not considered as good as o

Still using Windows 7? It’s time to move on, but kudos

The venerable operating system will no longer receive security updates from Microsoft (unless, as happened with Windows XP in 2017, something truly dangerous is found) so it's time to say a fond farewell and upgrade to Windows 10. It might be easy to tease anyone who's still using such an old operating system, but if you (or a family member) are still using Windows 7 for day-to-day computing then I'd argue that's actually something to be respected. Upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 is a str

Verizon’s plans to connect rural US in a 5G era

The Verizon 5G network is based around high-speed but small-area millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies, and its expansion throughout 2019 was restricted to cities - leaving it unclear if, or when, rural US will get the next-gen network. If you like congregating with your fellow humans en masse, the carrier will continue to blanket stadiums, airports, and public areas with mmWave 5G, which it sees as aligning with the 'follow the traffic' philosophy. When Verizon describes its 'nationwide 5G,' thi
