%name Philips Ambilight was the greatest thing to happen to TVs, and this kit brings the same feature to your TV by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Marvel cut an entire ‘Battle of the Sky’ from the end of ‘Avengers: Endgame’

There has been so much written about Avengers: Endgame since it hits theaters in April (and for months before that), you might have assumed there weren’t any secrets left to learn about the Marvel Studios epic. Well, you would have been incorrect, as Sean Gunn (Kraglin in the MCU and brother of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn in real life) revealed in an interview that a massive action sequence was cut from the film.

Report says iPhone sales will continue to sink despite the upcoming iPhone 11 release

%name Report says iPhone sales will continue to sink despite the upcoming iPhone 11 release by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Over the past few years, analysts and investors have been anticipating a monster iPhone refresh cycle that has yet to manifest. The first false alarm, so to speak, came with the 2016 release of the iPhone 7. At the time, industry observers thought that the record-setting wave of iPhone 6 buyers in 2014 would result in an even greater upgrade cycle once those initial two-year contracts expired.

The next false alarm came with the 2017 iPhone X release. At the time, many anticipated that the iPhone’s new form factor would spur an avalanche of upgrades. Things, however, played out a little bit differently. The iPhone X didn’t set any sales records, and the subsequent release of Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup actually saw a decline in year-over-year iPhone sales.

One of the most hyped Galaxy Note 10+ features isn’t all it’s cracked up to be

%name One of the most hyped Galaxy Note 10+ features isn’t all it’s cracked up to be by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

In our review of the Galaxy Note 10+, we noted that one of its standout features was its support for 45W Super Fast Charging, but we weren’t able to test it ourselves. In fact, even if you bought a Galaxy Note 10+ today, you would not be able to test the functionality either unless you picked up a 45W charger separately.

The Galaxy Note 10+ comes with a 25W charger in the box, but if Samsung is charging $49.99 for a first-party 45W charger, it must be a significant upgrade over the included charger, right? Not according to a test from Thai tech blog DroidSans (via SamMobile), which shows negligible differences between the two.

Why Spider-Man 3 might launch before Avengers 5 even if Sony and Disney strike a deal

%name Why Spider Man 3 might launch before Avengers 5 even if Sony and Disney strike a deal by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Sony shocked MCU fans earlier this week when it confirmed the rumors that said the studio failed to extend its MCU deal with Disney. Sony, hoping it can make blockbuster Spider-Man movies on its own without the MCU, didn’t agree to Disney’s proposed terms for a future deal. As a result, Spider-Man is no longer a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s the kind of move that will affect both studios, especially if they don’t find a way to compromise. And it’s Sony that will have a more daunting task creating a successful MCU alternative around Spidey — Marvel can easily move forward with new Avengers adventures that don’t include Spider-Man. Now, it looks like Sony might be under pressure to make Spider-Man 3 and release it long before Avengers 5 hits theaters.
