%name Verizon’s sweet new BOGO deal lets you score a free iPhone XR, Pixel 3 or Galaxy S9 by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Verizon is launching another one of its BOGO deals on top smartphones starting today, a limited-time offer that makes leading handsets available for free or at a discount when you purchase another phone at full-price.

The BOGO (buy one get one free) promotion comes on the same day Verizon’s Apple Music promotion begins. In terms of the latter, the company is going to start offering free Apple Music as part of its Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited plans — an outgrowth of a promotion that actually began last year, when Verizon started offering unlimited subscribers six months of Apple Music for free. Customers responded favorably, so the deal is now being expanded.

Next-gen iPhone XR to offer a huge boost in cellular performance

%name Next gen iPhone XR to offer a huge boost in cellular performance by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

If you thought the leap from 3G to 4G was incredible, the forthcoming rollout of 5G will be nothing short of astounding. The data speeds afforded by 5G are genuinely hard to believe and will undoubtedly impact the way we use our devices in a fundamental way. Now, the good news is that 5G phones will start arriving en masse later this year. The bad news, if you’re an iPhone owner, is that Apple reportedly won’t embrace 5G until 2020.

In the interim, though, Apple reportedly has something cooking for its next-gen iPhone XR. According to a new research report from Barclays (via MacRumors), the next iteration of the iPhone XR will offer improved cellular connectivity thanks to a 4×4 MIMO antenna design.

Twitter just disclosed the existence of the kind of privacy bug you’d normally expect to hear coming out of Facebook, which has been dogged repeatedly by this kind of thing over the years. Now it’s Twitter’s turn, with the social network acknowledging today an issue affecting the “Protect your Tweets” feature associated with some accounts. Turns out, some Android users who enabled that setting — which sets their tweets to “private” — actually had their tweets displayed publicly. For a shockingly long amount of time, almost five years.

LG is about to unveil a new flagship phone unlike anything else we’ll see in 2019

%name LG is about to unveil a new flagship phone unlike anything else we’ll see in 2019 by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

We have almost reached the edges of the phone when it comes to display size, but smartphone makers this year will continue to increase screen-to-body ratios. The best example is the Galaxy S10, a highly anticipated Android flagship that will feature an Infinity-O display with very tiny bezels. The only other way to extend a phone’s screen is to go for a foldable design — mobile devices that can operate in tablet and smartphone modes. Samsung is also doing that in 2019, although the Galaxy F will reportedly be released with limited availability and a sky-high price tag. But new reports say that a new LG phone, not necessarily the LG G8 that should be unveiled at MWC 2019 next month, might feature a totally different design unlike anything else we’ll see this year.

%name New ‘Spider Man: Far From Home’ footage explains one of the first trailer’s biggest mysteries by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Sony finally released the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer we’ve been waiting for, and in hindsight, I wish I hadn’t seen it. That’s because Sony is trying too hard not to spoil Avengers: Endgame while simultaneously sneaking in tiny teasers that basically ruined the whole thing. I wouldn’t blame you if you had plenty of questions for Peter Parker and the gang, because Sony included plenty of information that still needs explaining. For example, how is it that Aunt May knows about Parker’s secret identity? And how come she and Happy seem so friendly together? Also, how does Peter get his costume back, considering that he left it at home? It turns out there’s more Far From Home footage that we didn’t see, and it offers us an answer for the big mystery surrounding Peter’s spider suit.
