There’s an annoying Galaxy S10 bug that keeps killing the battery

%name There’s an annoying Galaxy S10 bug that keeps killing the battery by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Following the disaster that was the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung has managed to avoid any other major controversies with its smartphone releases in the years since. But just days after the launch of the Galaxy S10 series, some users have begun to complain about an issue that is causing their batteries to drain at an accelerated rate.

As pointed out by SamMobile, some S10 owners have claimed that the phone’s display is turning on while sitting in their pocket due to the Tap to Wake feature. If the screen is constantly turning on and off while you’re walking around with the phone in your pocket, the battery is going to deplete itself earlier than it should.

MySpace accidentally deleted every song, photo, and video uploaded before 2016

%name MySpace accidentally deleted every song, photo, and video uploaded before 2016 by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Before Facebook dominated the social networking landscape, there was MySpace. Remember Tom? Remember having a list of your top 8 friends? Remember obnoxious personal pages with flashing lights, auto-playing music, and a seemingly endless stream of quizzes? It seems like a lifetime ago, but there was a period of time back in the mid-2000s when MySpace was the world’s largest and most popular social network.

Famously, MySpace quickly became irrelevant once Facebook decided to allow non-students to join back in 2006. MySpace’s demise can also be traced back to a number of questionable product decisions from the company’s higher-ups. As a prime example, Facebook offered users a clean and straight forward interface while MySpace decided to stick with a design principle that can properly be categorized as anarchy. All that said, you may have completely forgotten that MySpace is still around, though the site these days is more of a music-oriented entity than anything else.

A huge fireball exploded in the Earth’s atmosphere and almost no one noticed

%name A huge fireball exploded in the Earth’s atmosphere and almost no one noticed by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

When a space rock comes speeding down towards Earth it usually makes headlines for obvious reasons. Even smaller objects that appear in our sky have a habit of producing brilliant light shows, so you’d imagine that a space rock explosion ten times as powerful as a World War II-era atomic bomb would get a lot of attention, but you’d be wrong.

As BBC reports, in late 2018 the most powerful meteor explosion of the past half decade went virtually unnoticed by just about everyone. Now, after further investigation, NASA is officially logging the event as a fireball explosion, and it was the second most powerful of the past several decades.

Last week, Marvel and Disney dropped the second Avengers: Endgame trailer and it contains several interesting details about the movie. The new trailer confirmed a bunch of leaks we say time and time again, and it also seemed to support a popular time travel theory for the film. The second trailer has already been watched some 268 million times, which is enough to make it the second-most watched trailer ever in the first 24 hours — the #1 spot is held by, you guessed it… the first Endgame trailer. But many of us watched that trailer wrong, and we all missed a few crucial details, including a huge spoiler.
