  1. Just watch the first 30 seconds: Samsung Galaxy X Infinity Flex Display phone: everything you need to know about the foldable smartphone Here's how Samsung plans to convince you to pay £1,000+ for an OLED display that folds-up like a paperback In the face of tougher competition from the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, and OnePlus, Samsung promised to unveil something entirely new for its next flagship smartphone, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy X. And on 7 November 2018, at the Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco, it did just that. Taking to the stage at the conference, Justin Denison, SVP of Mobile Product Marketing, first talked through the challenges of developing a folding display before producing a prototype of the Samsung Galaxy X from his pocket to applause from the crowd. The phone itself doesn't have a name yet, but the display does. Samsung is calling it the Infinity Flex Display. Recent comments by Samsung's President and CEO of IT & Mobile DJ Koh suggest the phone is going to be the first in a series of foldable handsets, so it's no exaggeration to say this is going to mark a big change in the market. Samsung also recently confirmed that it is working on foldable laptops. And its rumoured to be working on foldable tablets, too. Well, if you've cracked the engineering challenge of folding screens – and it appears that Samsung has – then you might as well put them in everything. Folding 4K TVs next? Samsung Galaxy X first look The Samsung Galaxy X folding phone was shown off at Samsung's Developer Conference at Moscone West in San Francisco on November 7. Although we got a look at the phone in both its unfolded and folded forms Justin Denison explained on stage "we've disguised some elements of the design but trust me, there's a device inside here and it is stunning." "The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience," added DJ Koh. You can watch a re-run of the event below. Hint: fast forward towards the end unless you want to hear lots of developer talk about software first. Samsung Galaxy X release date At the November 7 unveiling, no release date was given for the new handset, but Denison did say "we'll be ready to start mass production in the coming months." So all the release date rumours leading up to the event still seem right – the Galaxy X won't launch until 2019. Samsung previously hinted its first foldable handset might be unveiled on-stage at CES 2019 in early January, or MWC 2019 in late February, two of the biggest tech expos. But in terms of actually buying one? Immediately after CES reveal sounds extremely unlikely and after a MWC perhaps still a little optimistic. We're guessing a public release date of March/April 2018 at the earliest. Samsung Galaxy X price Again, Samsung declined to give a price when it showed the somewhat-disguised Galaxy X on 7 November. But one thing is for certain – this is going to be a very expensive gadget. Considering this is the first foldable handset from Samsung, it isn't likely to be cheap. The current rumoured cost is a cool £1,365 or $1,775 – that's the current exchange rate for 2 million won, which is the mooted Korean price. Given the maxed-out Galaxy Note 9 already costs £1,099 ($1,249.99) – and that only has one screen – the upcoming folding smartphone will likely carry a hefty price tag. Californian technology firm Royole recently launched a folding phone, which has a single OLED screen – not the two coming to the Galaxy X, and that still topped £999 ($1,300). So if you want the coolest smartphone of 2019, you'd better start saving for it. https://www.t3.com/news/samsung-galaxy-x-release-date-price
  2. Let's see if the self-proclaim-innovator Apple would copy the foldable screen technic?
  3. It's a developer reveal i.e. not meant for consumer. The one he had showcased is a prototype. Mass production of the final product will start soon. The final product will probably debut on MWC 2019 (aka consumer reveal) in late February.
  4. English bulldog bites off Scottish man’s peanut butter smeared genitals A SCOTTISH man has had his peanut-butter smeared genitalia bitten off by an English bulldog. Paramedics were unable to recover them for reattachment. News Corp Australia Network November 3, 20188:12am AN ENGLISH bulldog has been euthanased after biting off his Scottish owner’s testicles, which had been coated in peanut butter. The 22-year-old man, who has not been named, was found fully clothed and lying in a pool of blood in his Haddington, East Lothian, apartment. He was rushed to hospital where he was put in an induced coma for several days. He returned to consciousness and co-operated with police. Authorities say nobody else had been in the apartment at the time of the attack. The dog, named ‘Biggie’ after gangster rapper Biggie Smalls, was found covered in his owner’s blood. “Inquiries are continuing to establish how a 22-year-old man sustained significant injury to his groin area,” a Scottish police spokesperson said. “However, as part of this investigation the owner of the dog, which is believed to have been involved, has voluntarily signed documentation consenting to the destruction of the animal.” A neighbour old theDaily Record that Biggie was an “an absolute angel.” “Biggie is such a nice dog. He isn’t aggressive or anything, and he’s quite small. He’s fine with other dogs. The dog is an absolute angel. I was happy to be around him. He gets a bit freaked out by noise but he loves having his belly rubbed.” Neighbours reported hearing the bulldog barking at around 4am and again at 8am on the October 7, the day of the incident. A loud party was reportedly heard coming from the address. However, The Times reports police believe no others are believed to have been involved in the incident. Police arrived at the scene about 2.30pm. Local media reports the man’s genitalia were not able to be recovered for reattachment. https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/news-life/english-bulldog-bites-off-scottish-mans-peanut-butter-smeared-genitals/news-story/8b63718ca68265bffdecbf27b71593b8

  8. No he's not. DailyFail twisted his words. Michael Buble Shuts Down Rumors of Retirement From Music 10/18/2018 by Associated Press Michael Buble is shutting down rumors that he’s going to retire from music, saying he was misquoted in a recent interview. Buble told The Associated Press on Tuesday (Oct. 16) that he is not planning on retiring anytime soon. He disputes an Oct. 13 interview published in the Daily Mail that said he would quit music after the release of his upcoming album Love, due Nov. 16. The report suggested the Grammy-winning singer was stepping away from music for good following his son Noah’s cancer battle, but Buble said the story is false. “I’ll keep going until the news of my death comes out, which will probably be fake too,” he said with a chuckle. “At that point, you’re really famous now. Things are really going well on this record. Buble is hanging with Elvis. ... Buble and Elvis having fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches together.” The Canadian singer took a two-year break from public life to spend time with his family before recording his eighth studio album. He and his wife, actress Luisana Lopilato, have two sons, Elias and Noah, together and welcomed a baby girl named Vida Amber Betty in July. The singer said he learned about the report after receiving text messages from a couple friends. In reply to his friends, he told them: “Consider the source.” Buble called the Daily Mail report “negative energy.” As a public figure, he said he understands it comes with the territory but still doesn’t want to deal with it. “I’m not strong enough to deal with it, so I don’t deal with it,” he said. “By the way, those friends that wrote me, I said to them ‘Thank you so much for caring about my well-being. Do me a favor, don’t share it with me. Send me pictures of your kids and tell me how you’re doing, because I much rather know about that.’” https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/8480545/michael-buble-shuts-down-rumors-of-retirement-from-music

  10. Westlife confirms reunion with new tour and music – but one member's missing Will you be missing this band member? October 04, 2018 - 10:35 BST Ainhoa Barcelona Westlife fans, rejoice! The boy band are reuniting six years after their split, with new music and a tour lined up. Kian Egan, Nicky Byrne, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan made the announcement in a video posted on Facebook, although former member Brian McFadden, who left in 2004, will not be joining. The video shows the four lads sitting on stools and greeting each other as they walk into the room, with Nicky apologising for being late. "I missed the train," he says, laughing. "So, we do it on three, or just start?" asks Shane. "Let's do it on three," says Mark. Shane counts the group in before they say, "Hi, we're Westlife!" "We'll be seeing you soon," they say at the end of the clip. The reunion marks 20 years since the band first formed in 1998. During their career, they reached 14 UK number one singles and had seven top-selling albums, known for their hits including Uptown Girl, Flying Without Wings and Fool Again. After splitting in 2012, Kian, Nicky, Mark and Shane embarked on solo careers, as did Brian who had left years before. This week, it was confirmed that Brian will be taking part in Dancing on Ice next year. Kian, 38, also made headlines after winning I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2013. Speaking to HELLO! after his jungle victory, the singer, who shares three children with wife Jodi, said: "Being away from my family made me look at our lives. I was on top of the world and the only other time I'd felt like this was when we had Koa." He added: "I'd love to have a mini Jodi. I'm so lucky to have her and Koa and if we can give him a brother or sister, why wait?" Kian and Jodi went on to welcome two more sons – Zekey in 2015 and Cobi in 2017. https://www.hellomagazine.com/celebrities/2018100463063/westlife-confirm-new-music-tour/

    Westlife confirms reunion

    Talk about ugly... Westlife Origin: Kian Egan, Markus Feehily and Shane Filan, along with fellow Sligo men Derrick Lacey, Graham Keighron, and Michael Garrett, were part of a six-member pop vocal group called Six as One, changed in 1997 to IOYOU. The group, managed by choreographer Mary McDonagh and two other informal managers, released a single titled "Together Girl Forever" which was written by Feehily and Filan. Louis Walsh, the manager of fellow Irish boy band Boyzone, came to know the group after he was contacted by Filan's mother, but the group failed to secure a BMG record deal with Simon Cowell. Cowell told Walsh: "You are going to have to fire at least three of them. They have great voices, but they are the ugliest band I have ever seen in my life." Three members of the band (Lacey, Keighron and Garrett) were told they would not be part of the new group, and auditions were held in Dublin where Nicky Byrne and Brian McFadden were recruited. The new group, formed on 3 July 1998, was renamed Westside but that name was already in use by another band, so it was changed to Westlife. In Westlife – Our Story, Byrne revealed that, unlike the others in the group, he was keen to change the name to West High. McFadden also changed the spelling of his name to Bryan to make it easier to sign autographs. Boyzone singer Ronan Keating was brought in to co-manage the group with Walsh. The band then released an EP titled Swear It Again.

    Westlife confirms reunion

    Poor Brian... Brian McFadden says his former Westlife bandmates are blocking a full reunion He says a 'major offer' was on the cards. By Joe Anderton 28 April 2018 It looks everyone is reuniting at the moment, but one group who seemingly won't be getting back together in their entirety is Westlife. Brian McFadden, who quit the boyband in 2004, has said that although there was 'a major offer' for them to return as a five-piece, his former bandmates have blocked that from happening. "I was offered a big multi-million pound deal. It was the other boys in Westlife who said 'no'. They didn't want me back," Brian told The Irish Sun. "How does that make me feel? It makes me pretty upset because I didn't realise they still had those feelings towards me." Brian's quotes come a day after The Mirror reported that Brian posted a series of (now-deleted) tweets discussing the deal and the rest of the group's reservations about Brian returning to the band. "Dear fans and people who have supported us when we had bloody nothing," he wrote in the post, "Your [sic] the kings and queens who are us and we love you." "But I completely Underatand that the group see them selfs as a four piece.but let's be honest. Ego is destroying a full Westlife reunion [sic]." He later clarified what he meant, in another tweet that has also now been deleted. "For the record. I have spoken to senior members of the westlife project saying a major offer is on the table for a 5 man reunion," he shared. "That's fine but you have to respect the wishes of shane mark nick and Kian. If they only want to be a four piece I respect that." One tweet that managed to escape the culling on Twitter was this one, in which Brian responded to a fan saying that there was "nothing [he] can do" about making Westlife a five-piece group again. "Pal o would love us to sing the old songs but they've got a complex against me," he wrote. "Nothing I can do." A spokesperson for Brian told Digital Spy: "Brian has never had any desire or intention to join the Westlife reunion, since leaving the band his focus has always been his solo career and he has a new solo album coming out later this year, which coupled with performing with his good friend Keith Duffy as Boyzlife is where his energies currently lie. "The solo album is a work of love and a new direction for McFadden, he's currently in the studio rehearsing, writing and recording between Boyzlife gigs. He has a lot of fun on the road with Keith and is extremely passionate about his forthcoming release, which will feature some great collaborations and a series of solo shows planned for later this year and early 2019. "Brian is also committed to his personal relationship and a charity venture he is currently planning for this Xmas. There is little time in his schedule to have any concern over the Westlife reunion." Both Louis Walsh and Shane Filan have publicly said that they consider Westlife to be a four-person group now, with the latter specifically noting that Brian has been out of the group longer than he was in it. "We all had a good relationship with Brian, then he just left the band very early on. And I don't think we would ever reunite with him," Shane said earlier this week. "I honestly see Westlife as being four people now. The four people who started and finished Westlife are what I consider the band. Brian has been out of the band longer than he was in it. If we ever reunited down the line, it would only be the four of us." http://www.digitalspy.com/showbiz/news/a855878/brian-mcfadden-says-westlife-bandmates-blocking-full-reunion/
