The Galaxy S10 is the talk of the town right now, that is, if your town like hot smartphones.

%name Google Maps will get you to where you’re going with a Lime electric scooter by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Electric scooters are a big thing right now, and Google Maps is about to integrate Lime support right inside the app, which is a massive win for the scooter startup. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Google’s parent company Alphabet and Alphabet’s Google Ventures arm are investors in Lime. Furthermore, GV partner Joe Kraus is Lime’s COO and sits on the board of directors.

%name Vitaminwater will pay you $100,000 if you give up your smartphone for a full year by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Let’s be honest: there’s a good chance that you’re reading this article on a smartphone right now. There’s also a good chance that you’ve been somewhat tethered to your smartphone from the moment you woke up this morning. In today’s digital age, and thanks to social networking apps like Facebook, there’s no denying that our reliance upon and addiction to smartphones has grown by leaps and bounds over the last decade.

With that said, do you think you could go a full day without using your smartphone? How about a week or, say, a month? How about a full year? While most people would likely scoff at the idea of trading in their smartphone for a flip phone for a full year, what if someone was willing to make it worth your while? What if someone was willing to pay you $100,000 to give up your smartphone for 365 days? Well, now we’ve got ourselves a hypothetical worth exploring.

Well, that didn’t take long.

When you’re one of the premiere technology companies on the planet, aligning yourself with brands that so blatantly rip off other companies certainly isn’t a good look.

Puma is bringing back its 1980s ‘smart shoes’ because why not

%name Puma is bringing back its 1980s ‘smart shoes’ because why not by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

When Puma launched its “RS” computerized sneakers way back in 1986, the company thought it might be the dawning of a new era in smart wearables. Things didn’t quite go as well as planned, however, and the shoes fell onto a heaping pile of gadgets that were just way too far ahead of their time.

Today, wearable technology is common, so Puma has decided it wants to take another crack at its innovative smart shoes, and it’s doing so with a reissue that stays true to the original (now retro) design.

Authorities think agents from China’s Ministry of State Security hacked Marriott

%name Authorities think agents from China’s Ministry of State Security hacked Marriott by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

We’re starting to get a clearer picture of who authorities believe is responsible for the massive hack of the Marriott hotel chain in recent weeks that compromised the data of more than 500 million customers.

According to new reports from The New York Times and The Washington Post, the hackers are suspected to be affiliated with China’s Ministry of State Security. While authorities caution their findings are still inconclusive, they say the methods of the hackers, along with a variety of clues related to the hack, tend to suggest it was state-sponsored, which is yet another headache in the already fraught relations between the US and China. Both countries, you’ll recall, are still locked in the makings of a tariff-fueled trade war, and the CFO of leading Chinese tech company Huawei has been arrested in Canada ahead of possible extradition to the US.

%name Smartphone camera designs are about to get even crazier by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

When the Galaxy S10 launches in February, it will be available in four versions, reports say, complete with four distinct camera setups. We’re looking at combinations of single and dual-lens selfie cams, as well as multi-lens rear cameras — that’s anywhere from two to four cameras on the back.

But a new leak tells us smartphone camera design is about to get even crazier in 2019, with one of Samsung’s most significant competitors working on a different multi-lens camera module for next year.

Russia is treating the space station hole like a forensic investigation

%name Russia is treating the space station hole like a forensic investigation by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

The strange hole that was found months ago in the Soyuz spacecraft attached to the International Space Station continues to be a major focus for Russian space agency Roscosmos. When it was first discovered, it was thought to be damage from a tiny space rock, but it quickly became clear that it was actually a hole that had been drilled prior to the spacecraft ever leaving Earth.

Russia was quick to boldly claim that it was likely intentional sabotage, but Roscosmos hasn’t made any definitive announcement regarding when the hole was drilled or by whom. To aid in its investigation, Russia conducted a planned spacewalk yesterday so that cosmonauts could inspect the damage from outside and gather samples. It’s becoming an unprecedented “whodunnit,” and it’s happening in space.
