Daily News Roundup: Know When to Fold ‘Em

The first reviews of the Samsung Galaxy Fold—the company’s $2000 folding phone—landed a few days ago. Yesterday, some of those same review units were already broken.

Review units of Samsung's folding phone are breaking, and it's a potential fiasco that threatens the company's fragile reputation

Multiple journalists say that their early review units of the new Samsung Galaxy Fold have broken within days of getting them. The buzzy device is expected to be the first foldable smartphone from a major manufacturer when it officially launches next week — though experts we spoke to say that it wouldn't be crazy for Samsung to delay the launch. But if the hardware issue is widespread, it could be a nightmare for the company, and highlights the risks of rushing to be first. And it comes just a...

Samsung's $2,000 Galaxy Fold Units Are Failing Left and Right With Disastrous Display Issues

Four Samsung Galaxy Fold review units in the hands of major US tech journalists all experienced device-breaking display failures today. AndroidPolice: Steve Kovach of CNBC, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, and Dieter Bohn of The Verge have reported major failures of their phones' display panels, just two days after receiving them. To say this is a disaster for Samsung is probably underselling it. Well-known YouTuber MKBHD claims to be having similar problems, but hasn't posted any images. Bohn and Kova...

Some reviewers say their $2,000 Samsung Galaxy Fold foldable smartphones are breaking after just two days of use

Four reviewers of Samsung's Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone are complaining that the phone's display has broken after just two days of use.  The issue seems related to taking off a plastic film cover from the Galaxy Fold's display that's not designed to be removed — but at least one reviewer said his Galaxy Fold's display still broke even after keeping the film on the display.  Another reviewer said a bulge developed under their Galaxy Fold's display, eventually breaking it. This issue doesn't...

Apple is rumored to release a pair of high-end headphones this year, and they will probably be a huge hit like AirPods (AAPL)

Apple reportedly plans to release a pair of high-end over-ear headphones in 2019.

Apple's HomePod is too expensive, too limited, too late to market, and few people are buying it (AAPL)

Apple has cut manufacturing orders for HomePod. The smart speaker is more expensive than its rivals but has fewer functions. Apple missed the expected Christmas launch date, and now Amazon and Google's speakers are leaving it in the dust. Apple's HomePod smart speaker is too expensive, its functions are too limited, and it launched too late for the Christmas/holiday season, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports, and that's why few people are buying it. Some store locations sell as few as 10 HomePo...

iOS 12 Said to Feature Animoji in FaceTime, Deeper Siri Integration, and Do Not Disturb Improvements (mac rumors)

Apple's alleged plans to double down on the quality of its iPhone, iPad, and Mac software platforms, rather than rush to introduce new features, have been revealed in more detail by Mark Gurman at Bloomberg News. The report claims that Apple's software engineers will have more discretion to delay features that aren't as polished, with the company essentially shifting to more of a two-year roadmap for iOS and macOS, rather than trying to release major feature-packed upgrades every single yea...

Investigators no closer to unlocking mystery of Las Vegas gunman’s motive

By KEN RITTER, MICHAEL BALSAMO and SADIE GURMAN LAS VEGAS  — Those seeking to know the motive of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock have had little more to chase than hints and shadows. Paddock led such a low-key, private life that no one seemed to know him well, and those who did had no sense he was capable of the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. Where other mass killers have left behind a trail of plain-sight clues that help investigators quickly understand what drove them to ...

The iPhone 8's rumoured face-scanning tech could be a major step backwards for Apple (AAPL)

The upcoming iPhone 8 might ditch the fingerprint scanner in favour of facial-recognition technology. It sounds futuristic, but it could be a massive pain to use.

American Medical Association: New ACA Repeal Bill Would Still Do 'Serious Harm'

The United States’ largest advocacy group for doctors on Wednesday said the latest iteration of Republicans’ bill to repeal and replace Obamacare would eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions and result in millions of people losing their coverage.

State Charges Still Possible For Baton Rouge Officers In Fatal Alton Sterling Shooting

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Justice Department’s decision not to charge two white Baton Rouge police officers in the shooting death of a black man may not be the final legal chapter in a case that reverberated far beyond Louisiana’s capital. The department’s decision doesn’t preclude state authorities from conducting their own investigation of Alton Sterling’s fatal shooting last summer and pursuing their own criminal charges in the case. A person familiar with the Justice Department’s decision ...

Apple made a huge mistake when it decided not to take on Microsoft's Xbox and Sony's Playstation (AAPL)

The Apple TV is one of Apple's most perplexing products. Its design is lacking, its content is undistinguished, and much of its software, like the TV app or the iPhone remote, seems unfinished.  Bloomberg ace Mark Gurman wrote on Thursday about the current Apple TV's development process, and how the vision for the product has been scaled back over and over again. "I signed up for revolutionary. We got evolutionary," an Apple source told him.  But the most interesting detail to me was that Apple ...

Apple CEO Tim Cook's answer about the future of the Mac was missing one important word (AAPL)

In a question-and-answer session on Apple's internal employee network on Monday, Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked a simple question about the Mac, Apple's line of desktops, according to a transcript obtained by TechCrunch.  Cook was asked by an Apple employee:  "We had a big MacBook Pro launch in October and a powerful upgrade to the MacBook back in the spring.

There will never be an Apple Car (AAPL)

After about two years of steady speculation, it now looks as if the mysterious Apple Car will never actually make it to the road. According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and Alex Webb, Apple "has drastically scaled back its automotive ambitions, leading to hundreds of job cuts and a new direction that, for now, no longer includes building its own car, according to people familiar with the project." Citing unnamed sources, Gurman and Webb also report that the "Project Titan" team is being dismantled...

NASA lost contact with its STEREO-B spacecraft twenty-two months ago during a routine 72-hour test. On Sunday, the spacecraft reconnected with NASA roughly 189 million miles away from Earth.
