This week, Samsung previewed an early version of its highly anticipated foldable smartphone. And Royole, a Chinese company, launched its own take on the concept just days before. Other manufacturers, including Huawei, are rumored to be joining the fray next year too.
But let me tell you before you get too attached to these products: You probably won’t be buying one. Foldable phones are a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist, and — from what I’ve seen so far — a clunky one. They will dominate the headlines next year and perhaps the year after that, and then they’ll go the way of 3D televisions and portable VR.  Read more…More about Samsung, Foldable Phones, Tech, Smartphones, and Big Tech Companies

The rent, even for incoming members of congress, is too damn high in Washington D.C.
At 29-years-old, newly-elected congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York’s 14th Congressional District is the youngest woman ever elected to the House of Representatives. She says she also faces the same challenge a lot of people her age deal with: the cost of balancing a job in a new city with paying rent.

In a chat with the New York Times after her historic win on Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez said she can’t afford to move into a D.C. apartment until she gets paid as a congresswoman.

The doctored video of the interaction between CNN’s Jim Acosta and a White House intern, which was posted by the Trump administration and originated from Infowars, hardly pleased many of us, including Jimmy Kimmel.
“She should be forced to resign for that,” Kimmel said on Thursday. “She intentionally disseminated doctored video footage to discredit a reputable journalist … Sarah Huckabee Sanders should be fired and sent to live in a JOANN’s Fabrics store.”
Also in the line of fire was Kellyanne Conway, who also took the side of the intern. It’s “so ridiculous,” in fact, that Kimmel decided to take his qualms straight to Conway herself. Read more…More about Politics, Trump, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Entertainment

Late show hosts Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel have both referred to Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ decision to share a doctored video as a fireable offence.
Colbert tore into the White House press secretary on The Late Show Thursday for tweeting the doctored video of the moment during Trump’s “press tantrum,” when CNN’s Jim Acosta held onto the microphone when an intern was dispatched to try and take it from him. Acosta’s press pass was revoked, with Huckabee Sanders accusing the reporter of “placing his hands” on a White House intern during Trump’s press conference.
Acosta called it a blatant lie, as did CNN, and Colbert. Read more…More about Donald Trump, Stephen Colbert, Trump Administration, Jim Acosta, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders
