Samsung’s latest trolling campaign shows that it might be more afraid of Huawei than Apple

%name Samsung’s latest trolling campaign shows that it might be more afraid of Huawei than Apple by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Samsung loves to mock the iPhone every chance it gets, even if that means having to delete its commercials when they no longer make Galaxy phones look good. Well, Samsung is at it again, but this time it’s taking a hit at an Android rival that might be even more threatening than Apple.

Not only is Apple a huge source of revenue for Samsung, but the iPhone doesn’t really threaten Samsung’s position at the top of the mobile market. You know which company does, though? Huawei, which could potentially have topped Samsung much faster if it weren’t for the US government’s ban against the company. And now that the Mate 30 has arrived, the Korean company felt the need to respond in the only way it knows how: Trolling.

Feast your eyes on this ‘dead’ nearby galaxy, thanks to Hubble

%name Feast your eyes on this ‘dead’ nearby galaxy, thanks to Hubble by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Galaxies come in all shapes and sizes, and the galaxies most pleasing to the eye are always in the most recognizable shapes. Dramatic spirals with outstretched arms, bursting with newborn stars are always a jaw-dropping sight, after all. Messier 110 is most definitely not in that group.

Messier 110 is what is known as an elliptical galaxy. It doesn’t have well-formed features, and it’s not a swirling mass of eye candy. It’s just a big blob of stars hanging out around the nearby Andromeda galaxy. As far as galaxies go, it’s rather small, but NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has a certain knack for making even “small” destinations in space look larger than life.

If you’re not too busy playing Apple Arcade on your brand new green iPhone 11 Pro this weekend, you should know there are three new movies worth watching, although two of them are really only for fans.

You loved the TV series so much they made a movie, and that movie is finally coming out this weekend. It’s Downton Abbey, of course. Speaking of things you may have loved once, Rambo: Last Blood also premieres this weekend — but it’ll launch on streaming services in the coming months. Perhaps the most interesting new movie of the week is Ad Astra, a crime/space story starring Brad Pitt.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings wishes this Amazon show was on Netflix

%name Netflix CEO Reed Hastings wishes this Amazon show was on Netflix by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

You don’t often hear Netflix executives, and certainly not the streamer’s highly competitive CEO Reed Hastings, talk too much about “the one that got away” and about losing out to rivals who outbid them for the next hot show to license. That’s partly because of much content is already available on Netflix, meaning the losses don’t matter as much the way they might for a smaller player. Netflix is also such a massive juggernaut that’s transformed popular culture, such that talent (including at least one former president) is constantly beating down Netflix’s door, not the other way around.

Nevertheless, there’s at least one show Netflix’s chief executive will publicly admit he wishes was on Netflix instead of a rival. It’s on Amazon, which outbid Netflix for the show, and the show is Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s critically acclaimed comedy Fleabag.

iPhone 11 may be a lot more popular than anyone expected

%name iPhone 11 may be a lot more popular than anyone expected by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Leading up to the iPhone 11 introduction at last week’s media event, there was a sense that this year’s iPhone lineup would be something of a stop-gap measure before the release of the iPhone 5G in 2020. To our pleasant surprise, however, the iPhone 11 is arguably one of the most exciting upgrades we’ve seen in years, thanks in large part to advanced camera technologies and impressive features like Night mode.

What’s more, Apple made the entry-level iPhone 11 a tad more affordable with a sticker price of $699, or $399 with an eligible trade-in. Taken together, demand for Apple’s iPhone 11 models appears to be much stronger than many initially anticipated.

New code in iOS 13 points to Apple’s ongoing work on a pair of AR-powered glasses

%name New code in iOS 13 points to Apple’s ongoing work on a pair of AR powered glasses by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Over the past few years, one of the more intriguing rumors involving a new Apple product has centered on a pair of Augmented Reality glasses the company was supposedly working on. In addition to the usual speculation from the rumor mill, there was also concrete evidence that Apple was making a concerted effort to hire a large number of engineers with vast experience in various technologies related to augmented reality.

Amid rumors that a pair of AR glasses or headset was in the works, developers a few weeks back found a STARTester app in one of the latter iOS betas that includes a head-mounted mode designed to replicate the user experience of some sort of augmented reality hardware. Notably, the mode itself has two options, one called “worn” and the other called “held.”
