The grim truth about the Galaxy S6 and bloatware

BGR - do, 03/26/2015 - 19:45

Samsung hasn’t completely fixed the bloatware issue with its flagship Galaxy models, Gizmodo reports after it found that the Galaxy S6 has “as much bloatware as ever” with 56 pre-installed applications, even though the company seemed to promise a different approach to the whole bloatware matter.

Ellen Pao vs. Ellen Pao: who will the jury believe?

The verge - do, 03/26/2015 - 19:41

The most excruciating moments in the last leg of the gender discrimination trial against Kleiner Perkins happened Tuesday afternoon when Lynne Hermle, Kleiner’s formidable attorney, walked away from the podium to deliver parts of her summation a few feet closer to Ellen Pao. Outside the courtroom, Pao seems light-hearted, impish even. In the elevator last week, a reporter loudly kvetched about sitting through the month-long trial, and Pao piped up: "It’ll be over soon!" From the plaintiff’s table, however, Pao can be inscrutable.

"Plays it close to the vest" was a critique in one of Pao's performance reviews, and Hermle has quoted it to the jury a number of times. (Like "aggressive," when applied to Pao, Kleiner Perkins meant it as a...

Antarctica's ice melt has been accelerating in the last two decades

The verge - do, 03/26/2015 - 19:00

Ice floating along the coast of Antarctica has been melting more quickly over the past two decades, according to a study published today. The findings provide a more comprehensive perspective on how warming oceans have reduced ice volume, though it's difficult to say how soon sea levels could rise as a result.

The study, published in the journal Science, measures the thickness of Antarctica's ice shelves — floating sheets of ice that extend from glaciers out into the ocean. Using satellite radar data collected from 1994 to 2012, the authors found that ice shelves melted steadily in West Antarctica over the 18-year period, with losses accelerating by 70 percent after 2003. That’s significant because ice shelves play an important role in...

Rihanna just released a new single, Bitch Better Have My Money

The verge - do, 03/26/2015 - 18:02

Last night, Rihanna began teasing the debut single from her upcoming album — likely titled R8 — and this morning, she released super-teasey snippets of the song through the selfie video app Dubsmash. Now, the entire track, "Bitch Better Have My Money" (named after AMG's 1991 album), is available to stream.

The song has Rihanna asserting her place on top, hiatus be damned. She slides over a clattering wind-up beat, stuttering her words in that way that makes big pop songs so good for chanting while driving windows-down through your hometown. R8, which doesn't have a release date yet, will be Rihanna's first LP since 2012's Unapologetic.
