Samsung Gear 360 camera now in stores: here’s where you can buy them

Samsung has long made it easy for consumers to get their hands on its Gear VR headset, sometimes even throwing it in with a new Galaxy smartphone purchase. But the camera to create content for VR? Not so much. That changes today with the wider availability of the Gear 360 camera. Formerly available only through online purchase, the handy 360-degree camera can now be bought from select brick and mortar stores across the country, making it even easier to craft content to be viewed on VR headsets.

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Tempting fate, not to mention courts and lawyers, once again, Samsung has officially taken off the covers its self-described stylish desktop PC, the ArtPC Pulse. And it’s pretty much as we heard and seen it to be, including that oddly familiar cylindrical design. Of course, Samsung would argue how the ArtPC Pulse is so radically different in design as well as features. And, to some extent, it might be right, as the canister PC does have one thing Apple’s equivalent doesn’t: a somewhat modular design.

Galaxy Note 7 battery fire testing was Samsung’s own doing

Galaxy Note 7 battery fire testing was Samsung’s own doing

There's still a lot of mystery surrounding the Galaxy Note 7's battery disaster. Samsung is still trying to figure out the cause of the spontaneously combusting batteries, and it's still unclear why the second round of supposedly safe Note 7s had the same problem as the first batch. Today, however, we may be getting a little insight into how these battery flaws went undetected in the first place.

How to make Galaxy S7 90% into a Galaxy Note 7 (with less fire)

Galaxy Note 7 owners who've turned their device in for Samsung's recall can turn to the Galaxy S7 for aid. While the Galaxy S7 isn't quite as powerful as its larger relative, it is capable of quite a bit. Samsung seems to be on board with this idea with $100 in credit for a new Samsung phone to Note 7 returners. Now they've begun bringing in software features, too.

AT&T has a new service that will fix the screen of some iPhone and Android devices.

Samsung brings Note 7’s software features to the Galaxy S7

Samsung brings Note 7’s software features to the Galaxy S7

The Galaxy Note 7's short, bitter-sweet life is now officially over. But Samsung is now looking to make the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge a bit more appealing to those customers suddenly left without a phone, not only with a $100 credit, but also by porting some of the Note 7's best software features to the smaller handset. It may not fill the hole left in the heart of former Note 7 owners, but at the least the S7 is known not to explode at random.

Galaxy Note 7 will cost Samsung billions up to Q1 2017

Galaxy Note 7 will cost Samsung billions up to Q1 2017

It is, of course, no surprise that the Galaxy Note 7, from its production, recall, and now discontinuation, isn’t going to be cheap for Samsung. But now the company is telling the public just how much that will cost it, at least in terms of profit. Or rather, how long it will suffer the consequences. While the actual effects might be longer lasting, Samsung expects that its operating profits will take a massive hit all the way up to the first quarter of 2017.

The Galaxy S7 recall that didn’t exist

The Galaxy S7 recall that didn’t exist

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is not subject to a recall at this moment, but a bunch of device users think it is. The Galaxy Note 7 is subject to recall, completely and thoroughly, regardless of the device's color or carrier or country or operation. Unfortunate for Samsung is the fact that this is the first year in which both the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S series shared the same number, for continuity's sake. Because of that, one has been mistaken for the other in a big way.
