If you’ve been living under a rock for the past month or so, there’s something you need to know: Sony Pictures Entertainment was hacked. Just about everyone with an Internet connection or a TV is aware of the Sony hack — we even know exactly how the hackers broke into Sony’s internal network — but there are still plenty of things that people don’t know.

For one, it’s still not exactly clear who the culprit is, though President Obama and the FBI are convinced the perpetrators have ties to North Korea. And amid all the chaos, there are also many revelations from the thousands of documents that have leaked, and new ones continue to pop up every day.

Samsung fans around the world are still waiting patiently — or impatiently, in many cases — for the latest and greatest software to be released for their Galaxy smartphones. As big as Samsung is, the company is typically very slow to release Android software updates, but this time around it looks like things will be a bit different for Samsung fans.

Android 5.0 Lollipop builds for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 and other phones began leaking shortly after Google released its Lollipop update to partners, suggesting that Samsung may be among the first vendors to issue the update for its phones.

Now, another new leak shows Android Lollipop on each of Samsung’s top three smartphones.

There’s nothing wrong with the iPhone 6. It’s the best smartphone not only in the world, but ever made. It’s gorgeous, it’s luxury-level premium, it’s the phone Apple wishes they could have made 7 years ago — it is completely perfect. Though, as someone who has always bought the best available iPhone, it kind of hurts that there’s one a bit better.
