Samsung releases Milk Video exclusively for Galaxy owners

Samsung Galaxy smartphone owners are getting a new feature today. Milk, Samsung’s umbrella brand for media, has a video player launching today, the appropriately named Milk video. The service is designed for streaming of shorter video clips (but not ‘Vine’ short) rather than longer-form content. You might catch a music video, but it’s doubtful you’ll see an uploaded episode of an old TV show. Milk Video may sound a bit like a YouTube competitor, but it pulls content from there (among other sources), so it’s really not.

Samsung and Apple tipped friendly on chips

Samsung and Apple tipped friendly on chips

This week a tip has come in from Korea that Apple may well have made up and shaken hands with Samsung for future chip production. This would be a multi-billion-dollar deal as it would remove TSMC from the equation, pushing Samsung back into the limelight for Apple device innards. Samsung has been a chipmaker for Apple before, but they had a bit of a falling out over the past several years.

Samsung’s “Project Beyond” camera explained in a video

The Samsung Gear VR is already notable and interesting just for the fact that it completely commoditizes virtual reality by turning the headset into just a smartphone accessory, an accessory to an expensive smartphone at that. Samsung apparently wasn't done yet. It is now generating some hpye and interest when it revealed its "Project Beyond", a rather weird looking, tripod-mounted camera that is designed to record the world in complete 360 degrees. And now we have a video explaining how and what for.

Galaxy S6 details begin to flow: here be (Snap)dragons

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been tapped as a turnaround point for the company. They've reached a point where their line of smartphones is popular, but not quite popular enough that they don't need to shake up the industry with a new lead - either an entirely new physical design or something late-breaking under the hood. What you'll find with the Samsung Galaxy S6 isn't another one in a line of devices that look like the design language born of the Galaxy S III. Instead you'll find Samsung bringing Project Zero forward with a new face AND mind.
