Hands-On With the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge
March 02, 2015
You want fancy? Samsung Electronics is going to give you some fancy. I recently got a chance to play around with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, two upcoming flagship models the smartphone manufacturer introduced on Sunday. Both are clearly an effort by the electronics company to address criticisms about the real and perceived quality of their upmarket devices. If you haven't been paying superclose attention to the vicissitudes of the smartphone market, here's the fast version of the past year or two: Samsung's good fortune, in part, has been due to the company's success making phones for every kind of customer and doing so at a lower cost than its competitors. Indeed, the company's victories in the marketplace led many to wonder whether Apple would have to reverse course and, instead of focusing almost entirely on the higher end of the market, start making a line of less-expensive phones.

LCD screens allow digital watches to retain usability
March 01, 2015
In The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, humans are described as "so amazingly primitive they still think digital watches are a good idea." In these days of cellphones and "smart watches" that tell you about texts and let you make calls, the digital watch may look a little outmoded. However, while no longer as popular as they once were, digital watches are still a useful piece of everyday technology. According to a PC Magazine timeline on the history of the digital watch, the first digital watch used gears and springs, just like an analog clock, but displayed numbers instead of moving hands to indicate the time.
