World predicted to end in 2017 thanks to a total solar eclipse hitting America and the UK

World predicted to end in 2017 thanks to a total solar eclipse hitting America and the UK : A Christian website has claimed that next year’s eclipse will bring about the end of the world

The eclipse will plunge countries into darkness and spark the end of the world, doomsayers from Christian website Unsealed have alleged. A total eclipse is expected to spread across America on August 21 2017, with western Europe experiencing a partial eclipse.

It will be the first total eclipse to travel from one coast of America to the other, for almost a century. Conspiracy theorists have pointed to passages from The Book of Revelation to support their predictions, the Daily Star reported.

They have highlighted passages describing a woman clothed in the sun, with the moon at her feet. Scripture says the woman will be hunted by a Satanic seven-headed dragon looking to eat her unborn child.

It is said the child will be born and taken unto god, before an army of angels defeats the dragon. Conspiracy theorists have also pointed to the birth of Israel as a state, which began in 1947, to support the theory.

They give significance to mention of this in accounts of the end of the world and say that next year will mark a biblical generation – 70 years – since it happened. Unsealed also highlights predictions of twelfth-century Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel, who reportedly said the end of the world would come in 2017.

But, the doomsayers do hint at some uncertainty in their predictions as they’ve also said that scripture warns “no one knows” the hour of the apocalypse. Sourcethesun

Microsoft Surface Phone is Secretly being Manufactured? Samsung Galaxy S Killer Coming in Q4 2017 (RUMOR)

#MicrosoftSurface #SurfacePhone – Microsoft Surface Phone is Secretly being Manufactured? Samsung Galaxy S Killer Coming in Q4 2017 (RUMOR) : Bits of information about Microsoft Surface Phone has finally surfaced one by one.

Microsoft Surface Phone is currently being tested?

Taiwanese electronic corporation Pegatron is said to conduct tests on Surface Phone handset. For those unfamiliar with the company, it is the manufacturer who helps Apple crafting the iPhone components in highly secretive procedures, Bloomberg reported.

According to a local source, Pegatron has begun the trial production for Microsoft Surface Phone. The report corroborates Satya Nadella’s statement about working on an ultimate mobile device that will make all Surface devices more connected. It indicates that the company’s goal to bring business-centric phones into live, could be plausible.

The test reportedly includes more than one variant of Surface Phone, all rocking Snapdragon 835. There are two RAM options, 4 GB and 6 GB. According to the Forbes, the devices will support Continuum which allows them to be connected via HDMI port and open apps on the device.

Microsoft Surface Phone to be Galaxy S8 Competitor?

It’s been rumored that Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi 6 will be the devices sporting a Snapdragon 835 chip. As it will be built on Samsung’s very-own 10-nanometer technology – many have assumed that Galaxy S8 will be the only smartphone to have the chipset under the hood in 2017.

However, Surface fans can expect a different appearance and probably performance as Microsoft is said to equip the device with a 5.7-inch screen and 20 MP rear shooter. Microsoft Surface Phone might come out as a fairly unique device, unlike the rest as Nadella hints at a product that’s not defined by the current market leaders, Trusted Reviews reported.

Microsoft Surface Phone Release Date Delayed?

The Redmond-based company does not confirm any leak or release date speculation but reports suggest that the Surface Phone might be introduced in Q4 2017. However, tech crowds doubt whether 2017 is the right time for a Surface Phone release and here is why. Source: universityherald

Surface Phone Reportedly Enters Trial Production

#SurfacePhone #Microsoft – Surface Phone Reportedly Enters Trial Production : There is now another reason to believe that Microsoft could soon be launching its long-rumored Surface Phone. A new report fresh from Taiwan is already spilling the beans on the secretive operation that’s being carried out by the Redmond giant for the development of its superior handset.

On Monday, MSPoweruser obtained information from The Commercial Times of Taiwan about the Surface Phone’s whereabouts. According to the Taiwanese publication, the Surface Phone has already entered trial production under ODM Pegatron, the same company that manufactures Apple’s iPhones and Microsoft’s Surface Studio.

No other pertinent information was provided by the publication. What’s only clear for now is that the Surface Phone could arrive some time next year or in early 2018. Knowing that Microsoft is already conducting trial productions is already a good sign that the handset could be arriving no later than 2018.

For consumers who are still wondering why the Surface Phone is taking a lot of time to make, Ubergizmo says the reason behind this has to do with Microsoft’s desire to offer the “ultimate mobile device” when it launches its new flagship smartphone. There are already speculations that this smartphone is going to be capable of running x86 apps on Continuum mode.

The news about the Surface Phone entering trial production comes less than a week after Microsoft CEO Natya Nadella opened up on how the company is planning to make a spectacular comeback in the smartphone scene.

“We don’t want to be driven by just envy of what others have, the question is what can we bring? That’s where I look at any device form factor or any technology, even AI,” Nadella said. “We will continue to be in the phone market not as defined by today’s market leaders, but by what it is that we can uniquely do in what is the most ultimate mobile device.”

Nadella’s recent statement paved the way for fans to believe that the “ultimate mobile device” the CEO mentioned in the interview was actually referring to the Surface Phone. Source: yahoo

2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Almost Looked Like This

2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Almost Looked Like This : We are all looking forward to seeing what the new Jeep Wrangler will look like. Although we have already seen our fair share of spy shots, we still do not have a clear picture of what the Jeep Wrangler will look like.

The prototype you see here was one of the Jeep Wrangler design that Jeep ended up rejecting. While this will not be the final production model, many believe that most of its features would actually make it to the final model.

We know that Jeep plans to keep the box on frame design for a little while longer although new spy shots do suggest that the vehicle will be coming with a more aerodynamic design this time. That mean longer hood and steeper windshield.

Jeep is also looking to incorporate more aluminum into the Jeep Wrangler to reduce the overall weight of the car. It was reported that the Wrangler will now come with an aluminum hood as well as aluminum doors.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL: Microsoft Will Ditched It Like 900

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL: Microsoft Will Ditched It Like 900 : Microsoft made it clear that some of their older devices like the Lumia 900 would still get the new Windows 10 OS when they first announce it but a long wait, they came out to announce that the Lumia 900 will not be getting the update.

Unlike the Windows 10 OS which is actually pretty good, the Windows 8 OS that the Lumia 900 was running on was actually pretty buggy and the users were all looking forward to getting rid of it but that did not happen.

Not only were they stuck with the old OS but some users also reported that some of their apps started going missing. Apps like Zune was taken out and users were slowly but surely left with a device that was close to being useless.

While we do not know when Microsoft will come out with a new OS to replace the Windows 10, some people believe that the Lumia 950 will not be getting the update when the time comes.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date: Leaks Revealed Massive Storage, Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor

Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date: Leaks Revealed Massive Storage, Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor : Samsung Galaxy 8 is arriving in early 2017. This newest smartphone from the leading Korean tech company is expected to mark the company’s comeback after experiencing failure with the release of the Galaxy Note 7.
Likewise, with the recall and discontinuation of the Note 7 units, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will now serve as the company’s flagship phone.

The unit is an Android device which was described as the most powerful smartphone to come from Samsung yet. Now, prior to its official release, there have been reports that Samsung Galaxy S8 will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor which was recently unveiled. Its internal storage measures 6GB of RAM and it is expandable up to 256 GB.

This size is quite remarkable and far from the Galaxy S7 which only has 4GB of RAM and 32 GB storage. What’s more, based on leaked info for Samsung Galaxy S8, it will feature a more advanced hardware that offers extraordinary technology.

To be exact, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is said to be fitted with ultrasonic sensor for fingerprint detection through the glass. Another leaked detail is that the S8 will come with Viv, a really smart AI voice assistant similar to the ones used in Google and Apple systems.

In addition, leaked details suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to be the company’s biggest mobile unit to date. It was reported that it will be sporting a 6.2 inch edge to edge screen display. This means, the unit may be almost bezel-free.

Finally, sources shared that Samsung is likely to unveil the Samsung Galaxy 8 at the Mobile World Congress that is taking place in Barcelona, Spain. The event is set to begin on Feb. 27, 2017 and will end on March 2. Samsung usually releases its latest products during tech events. Thus, many are guessing that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be one of the items that will be revealed during the MWC 2017. Source: gamenguide

iPhone 8 Will Become the Best-Selling iPhone in History, Top Apple Analyst Says

iPhone 8 Will Become the Best-Selling iPhone in History, Top Apple Analyst Says : And because of that, top Apple KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo estimates that the iPhone 8 would be the best-selling iPhone ever, with the OLED screen and the wireless charging to be the most compelling features for buyers.

Specifically, the Apple analyst says that he learned from sources from the supply chain that Cupertino wants to build between 120 million and 150 million iPhone units in the second half of 2018, and if all of them are sold, the next-year model will become the most successful iPhone ever.

“To our understanding, while demand visibility in 2H17F is as yet unclear and presumed pull-in demand may change anytime, upstream suppliers may be around now setting ramp-up targets for new iPhone pull-in of somewhere between 120mn and 150mn units in 2H17F, exceeding previous iPhone 6, 6s and 7 cycles of 110-120mn, 100-110mn and 90-100mn units, respectively.

In other words, ramp-up for 2H17F pull-in may exceed the previous peak for iPhone 6, and hit a historical high,” the analyst was quoted as saying.

Wireless charging on the 4.7-inch iPhone 8

We’ve known for a while that the iPhone 8 could come with a new model, and now Ming-Chi Kuo reiterates the same plans. In addition to the standard 4.7- and 5.5-inch iPhones, Apple is expected to introduce a third configuration that could come with a curved OLED screen, but its dimensions are still unclear.

Some sources claim it could feature a 5.5-inch display, others point to 5.7 inches, but there are also rumors that the new iPhone might actually be 5.2 inches in size.

The analyst claims that the 4.7-inch iPhone could also feature a glass casing and wireless charging, and this confirms that Apple still bets big on the standard iPhone model, although it’s still pushing for better sales of the Plus. The next-generation iPhone is likely to go live in September 2017, so expect more such rumors to see daylight in the coming months. Source: softpedia

Google Pixel Phone Review, Latest News & Update: New Pixel Phone Will Be Launched In 2017

Google Pixel Phone Review, Latest News & Update: New Pixel Phone Will Be Launched In 2017 : Google Pixel XL and Pixel phones are one of the best smartphones to date. Google Pixel was able to surpass all smartphone competitors of this year 2016. For this reason, speculations spread that Google might be working with another Pixel phone for 2017.

Google Pixel Phone is rated as one of the top smartphones despite not having an elegant design. Critics say that Google Pixel phone 2017 is better than its successor, leading consumers to ask, what specs should we expect in this anticipated phone?

Google Pixel Phone was released last October 2016 with an 5.5-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 1440 x 2560 pixels, Corning Gorilla Glass 4, Android OS, v7.1 Nougat, Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 821 and Quad-core processor.

It has no memory card slot but its internal memory has 4GB RAM. Critics believe that the Google Pixel Phone 2017 can surpassed the specs of the 2016 model.

The Google Pixel phone has also its weaknesses that Google Pixel Phone 2017 should not forget to improve, such as, the boring design, high price and non-water resistance. According to Techno Buffalo, this Google device still remains one of the best smartphone in 2016 despite some of its shortcomings. The popularity and positive feedbacks elicited from its users have eventually led to the discontinuation of Nexus 6P.

As added by the same publication, aside from the attachment that will grow between the phone and its users, Google Pixel phone’s battery life and awesome camera specs will make the digital experience more excellent and worth the price. Well, this is actually what the phone users are looking for in the specifications.

New technologies come rapidly, gadgets improvements and innovations are every company’s goal. Google Pixel Phone 2017, although it has not been confirmed, this unit is expected to come with new technology to remain at the top of its competitors.

Google Pixel Phone 2016 is expected to deliver its successor in the last quarter of 2017. These phones are anticipated to address the current issues on Google Pixel phones such as software and hardware integration in which some critics see as a failure. Source: gamenguide

Apple to Remove the Home Button on Bezel-Less iPad – Report

Apple to Remove the Home Button on Bezel-Less iPad – Report : A new report from Japanese blog Macotakara and citing people with knowledge of the matter indicates that Apple is getting ready to ditch the home button on at least one of the upcoming iPad models, with some thinking that this is done in anticipation of a similar change planned for the iPhone.

Specifically, the source says that future iPads could come in three sizes, namely 9.7, 12.9, and 10.9 or 10.5 inches – information regarding the size of this last model is still contradictory, but there’s a big chance that Apple could go for 10.9 inches and achieve a bigger difference versus the 9.7-inch model.

Smaller or no bezels at all

One of the changes Apple is aiming for is a bezel-less design, or at least one that has substantially smaller bezels as compared to the existing models. A very small strip at the top of the tablet is very likely in order to hold the FaceTime camera, but the bottom bezel is likely to go away completely because of the removal of the headphone jack.

This could all lead to size changes for the revamped iPhone lineup, and the Japanese source claims that the 10.9-inch iPad is likely to be 7.5mm tick, just like the iPad Air and the iPad Mini.

The 12.9-inch will most likely measure 7.2mm, 0.3mm over the existing generation, probably because Apple is moving part of the technology that’s currently in the bottom part under the display for a bezel-less approach.

As with everything Apple, these are all just rumors for the time being, but Macotakara has a solid track on Apple leaks, so there’s a good chance that there’s some truth behind these words. We’ll hear more about Apple’s plans in the coming months, as the unveiling of the new iPads is likely to take place in the spring. Source: softpedia
