The flexible Samsung Galaxy Fold: all the rumors on design, price, release date, specs

Technology
We have been teased with "foldable smartphones" for a while now. For a couple of years, we've been hearing that Samsung is prepping one, but recently, manufacturers like Xiaomi and Huawei also threw their hat in the ring. And while the concept might sound a bit outlandish, we do remember that the Galaxy Note Edge, which launched back in 2014, was quite eccentric for its own time as well. By the looks of it, the future might just be foldable. And that future might be very, very close. Samsung has teased us time and again with its upcoming Galaxy Fold (name unconfirmed) and it seems we just might see it announced on the 20th of February, just before MWC! Huawei will be close on its tail, too, so we presume Sammy is in a hurry here. So, it's a good time to take a look back at the le
Foldable Smartphones the Next Generation

Foldable Smartphones the Next Generation

Technology
Chinese phone maker Xiaomi recently revealed a device that, at first glance, looks like a tablet. Then it folds up into a phone. While it's just a prototype, it's an example of a trend that's likely to occur in the coming years, as popular device makers begin to sell products with folding screens. The Xiaomi device, as you can see in the video above which was posted to Xiaomi's social networks and later put on YouTube by The Verge, looks like a normal tablet at first. But, later in the clip, the tablet is folded into thirds, with the left and right side bent behind the center. The tablet suddenly becomes about the size of a large cellphone, a form factor that makes sense for some things that a tablet doesn't work well for, like placing phone calls. Samsung also revealed a prot
Artificial intelligence wins over professional Starcraft players

Artificial intelligence wins over professional Starcraft players

Technology
Google's DeepMind won two, five strokes. It is seen as a crucial step forward for AI research. For fans of movies like Terminator, it sounds like a bad idea to train artificial intelligence in winning over people on a battlefield. But that is, nonetheless, what Google is doing. And in December, their artificial intelligence (AI) won DeepMind so convincingly over two professional computer players in the advanced real-time strategy game Starcraft 2. The history of artificial intelligence is marked by a number of decisive victories in various games. And I hope even though there is still a lot of work to be done that people in the future will look back on this as another step forward for AI, says one of the leaders of Google DeepMind, David Silver, to the tech media. - The Verge....
Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp & Instagram Are Merging, According To Facebook

Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp & Instagram Are Merging, According To Facebook

Technology
A Friday report from the New York Times details Mark Zuckerberg's plans to integrate the messaging services of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp by the end of this year or by early 2020 at the latest. Each of the three Facebook-owned apps themselves will still operate independently, but users will be able to send messages across them. So, someone who uses WhatsApp could talk to someone using Facebook Messenger without being on the same app. According to the New York Times, the messaging on all three apps will use end-to-end encryption, which is meant to increase privacy by making sure only those within the conversation are able to access it. Currently, only WhatsUp uses end-to-end encryption by default. Facebook said in a statement to CNBC, "We're working on making more

What Is a Sales Funnel? The Guide to Building an Automated Selling Machine.

Technology
One of the core concepts in the digital marketing industry is the sales funnel. While odd sounding at first, this single core concept can take a business from virtually non-existent and unknown to multi-million-dollar marketing machine with mass saturation, seemingly overnight. In fact, there are skilled practitioners who have built a career around implementing this single concept in business. If you're wondering what a sales funnel is, simply imagine a real-world funnel. At the top of that funnel, some substance is poured in, which filters down towards one finite destination. In sales, something similar occurs. At the top, lots of visitors arrive who may enter your funnel. However, unlike the real-world funnel, not all who enter the sales funnel will reemerge out from...

SEO Tutorial: 12 Immutable Laws For Dominating Google’s Search

Technology
What happens in an internet minute? One year ago. The answer would have been 2.4 million searches on Google performed per minute. Yes. Per minute. This year, 3.5 million per minute. Considering that there are 1,440 minutes in any given day, the sheer vastness of that number, along with the endless petabytes of data it represents, should shock and awe even the most scarcity-minded individual. There is real abundance in the bits and bytes that are floating about in cyberspace. It's an obfuscated layer that can't been seen with the naked eye, but only conveyed by the powerful machines that are humming across the planet. However, this is only a sliver of what's to come.

Why Authoritative Content Is More Important Than SEO

Why Authoritative Content Is More Important Than SEO

Technology
It is a little-known secret that Google and other search engines are making a shift from traditional search engine optimization (SEO) to a focus on quality and authoritative content. While it is still important to optimize your meta data and remain on top of relevant keywords, it can no longer be denied that when it comes to generating organic search results, quality content with a strong focus on authority is now leading the pack. Content that is heavy in SEO is no longer the best method for bringing in the traffic you seek. It has always been said that content is the king of the Internet. With Google placing an increasingly heavy focus on powerful content, marketing professionals are finding that authority is oftentimes more important than search engine optimization....
