iPhone 8: Everything we know so far about the 10th-anniversary edition of Apple's historic phone

iPhone 8: Everything we know so far about the 10th-anniversary edition of Apple's historic phoneAfter months of speculation, Apple delivered a very modest update of the iPhone lineup back in March. But the new Product Red editions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and the updated iPhone SE, are just the appetizer. The main course will be a dramatically redesigned iPhone -- coming later this year, according to the rumors.
When will we see the iPhone 8 -- or whatever Apple decides to call it? Frankly, the rumors are all over the place. Fall is a good enough guess, given that Apple has scheduled September introductions for every major iPhone since the iPhone 5 in 2012.
This time, however, things could be different. For the 10th anniversary edition of the iPhone, we're expecting Apple to come out swinging with some real breakthrough innovations. And, according to the most recent rumors, some of these hot new technologies could be making it tough for Apple to deliver the goods by September. More on that below.

Understanding Cybersecurity, Beyond the Russian Hacking Scandal

 Concept of being constantly attached to an electronic device into the early hours
It's difficult for anything to cross international borders faster than digital information. But the convenience of technology that allows more than 2.6 million emails, nearly 60,000 Google searches and 8,000 tweets to be sent each second inevitably puts the estimated 3.6 billion global internet users at risk of hacking.
"Our lives are powered by the technology we use. It's how we communicate with the world and interact with the world," says Gadi Evron, an influential cybersecurity thought leader and founder of the cyberdeception start-up, Cymmetria. "Whatever motive you have to use a tool do something, someone else has the opposite."

Apple's annual iPhone launch event has become something you can organise your calendar around, like Christmas or the half-term holidays - every September, usually early in the month, Apple CEO Tim Cook takes to the stage to introduce the year's new iPhones.
This September should be no different and we've already heard plenty of rumour and counter-rumour from the secretive Apple supply chain, suggesting that 2017's event - ten years after the first iPhone launched - is going to be special in more ways than one.

Samsung's Interactive Table is pretty awesome

 Samsung's Interactive Table is pretty awesome
It takes quite a bit to impress me, and while the new Samsung Galaxy S8 is a looker, it was actually an interactive demo that blew me away at the phone's Singapore launch.
The unremarkably named Interactive Table may not sound like much, but it really is a piece of cool tech. The table lets users check out the features of Samsung Galaxy S8 in a pretty amazing way.
You put the phone on the table, which is essentially a large display, and the table then detects where the phone is through the 12 cameras hidden below the screen. Using a round glass marker, you then get to select which of the features of the new phone you want to experience by simply twisting it.

How to switch from iPhone to Samsung

 Samsung Galaxy S8 color scheme?
Are you ready to give Samsung another shot after last year's exploding Galaxy Note 7 scandal? The troubled electronics giant just released its newest flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S8. If you've taken an iPhone detour while Samsung worked out its issues and are ready to return to Android with the Galaxy S8, then you'll want to take a few things with you, namely your contacts and calendar, your texts, photos and music.
Before you get started switching, you'll need to sign up for a Google account if you aren't already using Gmail. You can sign up for a Google account here, which you'll then need when setting up the Galaxy S8.

Samsung is reportedly testing a dual-screen smartphone prototype

According to reports from Korean publications ET News and The Investor, tech giant Samsung will produce a number of prototype dual-screen smartphones this year. The company has already begun production on the device, say the reports, and plans to make between 2,000 and 3,000 units in the first half of 2017.
These dual-screen devices aren’t destined for the consumer market, though, and will instead be a test-bed for Samsung to explore the potential of a foldable smartphone. The prototypes will reportedly be constructed from a pair of rigid, 5-inch OLED displays joined by a single hinge — a design we’ve seen in real consumer devices in the past, like NEC’s Medias W N-05E and the Kyocera Echo

Samsung Electronics says Galaxy S8 pre-orders exceeded S7

Samsung Electronics' Galaxy S8 smartphone is displayed during a media event in Seoul

Pre-orders for Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone have exceeded those of its predecessor S7, mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin said on Thursday, suggesting many consumers were unfazed by last year's Galaxy Note 7 fires.
The S8, which begin sales in South Korea, the United States and Canada on April 21, will be central to the South Korean firm's recovery from the swift withdrawal of the Note 7 phablet.
The new device has been well-received, and some investors and analysts said it could set a first-year sales record for the smartphone giant.
"It's still a bit early, but initial response to the pre-orders that have begun at various places across the world have been better than expected," Koh said at a media briefing.

How to secure your Google account

Google security  Your Google account includes email, photos, Drive documents, YouTube videos, and maybe even a Google Maps review or two. Between all those features, you've got a lot of important information packed away behind a single password. If it falls into the wrong hands, you're looking at a lot of unwelcome consequences.
The good news is that Google takes online security just as seriously as you (should) do. The tech giant offers a variety of account protection and security measures designed to keep unwelcome visitors out while letting you easily log in.
