Discovery of one billion year old fungi changes our understanding of life on Earth

%name Discovery of one billion year old fungi changes our understanding of life on Earth by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

When scientists search for species that lived hundreds of millions of years ago they’re not always just looking for ancient animals. Life on Earth has changed a lot over time, but sometimes a new discovery reveals a few things that have stayed largely the same.

In a new paper published in Nature, researchers reveal the discovery of tiny microfossils dating back at least 900 million years — and perhaps even as far as one billion years — that prove that some forms of fungi were alive and well much farther back in Earth’s history than previously thought.

Samsung’s next foldable smartphone may avoid the pitfalls of the Galaxy Fold

%name Samsung’s next foldable smartphone may avoid the pitfalls of the Galaxy Fold by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

The age of the foldable smartphone stumbled right out of the gate as multiple Galaxy Fold review units suffered from serious malfunctions before the device could even make it to market. As a result, Samsung was forced to delay the launch of its first foldable smartphone (which still doesn’t have a release date).

With that in mind, it’s worth noting the Galaxy Fold won’t be Samsung’s last foldable phone, and this week, Patently Mobile dug up a recent Samsung patent for a device with similar ambitions, but a completely different design. Rather than have the main screen fold in on itself and slap a tiny screen on the outer shell, the device described in the patent would feature a “fold-out” form factor, with the main display on the outside.

Rotten Tomatoes introduces ‘verified’ ratings as a way to fight trolls

%name Rotten Tomatoes introduces ‘verified’ ratings as a way to fight trolls by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Rotten Tomatoes has announced a change to its audience score system as part of a multi-step plan to fight trolls which has been underway for a while now.

If you’ll recall, there’s been an uptick in trolls rushing to the site to “review-bomb” movies like March’s Captain Marvel, which was hit with a barrage of negative Rotten Tomatoes reviews from users before it had even be released. At one point on the Friday morning of its release weekend, the movie already had earned an abysmal 33% Rotten Tomatoes audience score thanks to trolls who’d left more than 58,000 reviews.

NASA needs your help to bring an asteroid sample back to Earth

%name NASA needs your help to bring an asteroid sample back to Earth by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission has already accomplished a lot since arriving at the space rock known as Bennu late last year. The spacecraft successfully entered orbit around the asteroid, scanned its surface with a laser, and learned a lot about its surface. But its mission is far from over, and eventually, the probe will need to pull off a daring sample-gathering maneuver in order to return material from the rock’s surface back to Earth.

The mission team was surprised to see just how rocky the surface of Bennu was, and the debris-strewn outer layer is going to complicate the already-tricky sample-gathering task. Now, NASA is asking for our help in deciding where it should touch down.

%name This is what the Galaxy Note 10 might look like by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

With May almost over, we’re some two months away from the next major Android phone launch. The Galaxy Note 10 will likely drop in early August, and it’ll come in as many as four versions, according to recent reports, including two differently sized 4G phones, and their respective 5G counterparts.

The Galaxy Note 10 will not share the Galaxy S10’s design, reports keep telling us, but it won’t feature a perfect all-screen design either. We’re still looking at an Infinity-O hole-punch screen design and a multi-lens camera on the back of the Note 10, but both the rear and selfie cameras will have different placements.

Although it could be months or even years before we actually see the next-generation home gaming console Sony has been teasing in recent weeks, the picture of the PlayStation 5 is beginning to take shape. In the same week that Sony showed just how fast the load times on its next console would be compared to the PS4 Pro, the company has seemingly confirmed that cross-play between PS5 and PS4 consoles will be possible.

During a Q&A session at Sony IR Day 2019, as PlayStation executives spoke about backwards compatibility and its relevance to the next generation, deputy president John Kodera revealed that “cross-generation the community can enjoy the games together.” In other words, PS5 and PS4 players can game together.

Best Oven Mitts

%name Best Oven Mitts by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Of all the essential kitchen tools out there, over mitts are likely the most often neglected. People tend to buy cheap mitts at a local store and then continue to use them long after they start falling apart. Rather than continuing to use the same stained, tattered old mitts that you’ve been suffering with for years, perhaps it’s time for an upgrade. Not all over mitts are created equal though, which is why we put all the top options to the test in order to pick out the best of the bunch.

Best cloth mitts

Cloth oven mitts have come a long way in recent years. In fact, many high-quality cloth mitts offer the same amount of heat protection as silicone mitts. High-quality doesn’t have to mean high prices though, and there is no better evidence of that than the Bestjoy Flame Retardant Oven Mitts. These sleek mitts have a diamond stitch pattern and are heat resistant to 425°, making them ideal for home use. Cook with these oven mitts just one time and you’ll wonder why you waited so long to replace your ratty old mitts.

Oven Mitts Flame Retardant Mitts Heat Resistant to 425° F Black Color 2-Pack: Price too low to display

Best silicone mitts

Silicone oven mitts are all the rage right now, due in part to the fact that people seem to think that silicone inherently offers better heat protection. While that isn’t necessarily true, silicone mitts do offer another big benefit over cloth: they’re much easier to clean. Anyone in search of a fantastic pair of silicone mitts should pick up the Homwe Extra Long Professional Silicone Oven Mitts. They feature a fantastic design, great grip, quilted cloth lining for comfort, and a wonderfully affordable price tag.

Silicone Oven Mitts with Quilted Cotton Lining – Professional Heat Resistant Kitchen Pot Holder…: Price too low to display

Best glove-style mitts

While traditional oven mitts are certainly the most common type of heat protection in the kitchen, they’re not the only option. People looking for heat protection that can stay on your hands and even protect you while you prep should check out these Extreme Heat Resistant Oven Mitt Gloves. In addition to providing heat resistance up to 1,472° and anti-slip silicone studs on the interior side, they also protect your fingers from accidental knife cuts.

Best Bluetooth Speakers

%name Best Bluetooth Speakers by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Bluetooth speakers are hugely popular right now, but not all speakers are created the same. The key is finding the perfect balance between sound quality, portability, and price to suit your budget. There are countless options out there these days, and it can easily be overwhelming. We have tested dozens upon dozens of different models over the years, and here you’ll find the best ones we’ve found.

Best Affordable Bluetooth Speaker

The Cambridge Soundworks OontZ Angle 3 Bluetooth Portable Speaker is the best affordable wireless speaker out there. It punches well above its weight, with sound quality typically found in far more expensive options. It also has upgraded 100-foot Bluetooth range so you don’t have to worry about wandering with your smartphone, and it’s IPX5 water-resistance to protect against splashes.

OontZ Angle 3 (3rd Gen) – Bluetooth Portable Speaker, Louder Volume, Crystal Clear Stereo Sound…: $25.99

Best Mid-Range Bluetooth Speaker

Anker is a brand that’s known for offering terrific quality products at affordable prices, but we still weren’t prepared for how impressive the Soundcore Flare Wireless Speaker by Anker is the first time we tested it. This compact speaker offers full, well-tuned sound that’s still crystal clear even when the volume is cranked up. The Soundcore Flare speaker also has surprisingly deep bass for such a compact speaker, and it even has built-in LED lights so you can put on a show while you listen.

Portable Bluetooth Speaker, Soundcore Flare Wireless Speaker by Anker, Waterproof Party Speaker…: $59.99

Best Premium Bluetooth Speaker

If you want the best in the business, look to a company that has been making incredible audio products for decades. The Bose SoundLink Revolve+ Portable & Long-Lasting Bluetooth 360 Speaker is a top-of-the-line portable Bluetooth speaker in every regard. From sound quality and 360-degree audio projection to jaw-dropping 16-hour battery life, the Revolve+ is as good as it gets.
