Now that 4K video is becoming more and more normal we need SD cards that can keep up. The current high speed cards can keep up pretty well with 4K, but those 4K files are huge and can take a while to transfer to your PC for editing. The all new Sony SF-G series can read up to 300MB/s and write up to 299MB/s. This means a 10Gb file can transfer in mere seconds! These cards are apparently also great for photographers since they nearly eliminate buffer clearing times. These cards are expected to launch in the Spring in 32GB, 64B and 128GB capacities.

Over the past several weeks we have seen leak after endless leak regarding the design of the S8 and S8 Plus. We have also heard rumor after rumor about the specs for these devices. Today we received a small gift from epic leaker Evan Blass. It looks like their won't be any "Edge" variant as both devices will have dual curved edge displays. Their will be no flat display variant. These phones are nearly identical in their specs minus the Display size and the battery size.

The batteries are expected to be 3,000mAh for the S8 and 3,500mAh for the S8 Plus. These battery sizes may seem a bit underwhelming, but the smaller batteries are in response to Samsung's findings that too large of a battery in too small of a...

As for the US variants of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus they will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The Snapdragon 835 will provide a boost in performance and battery efficiency. Samsung has also just announced the Exynos 9 Series 8895 which will almost certainly be featured in the international variants of the devices.

The Exynos 9 is the first chip to be built on the 10nm FinFET process technology. This allows for 27% higher performance while consuming 40% less power than the previous gen processors built on 14nm technology. The processor will also include an embeded gigabit LTE modem that supports five carrier aggregation. It can support 1Gbps downlink and 150Mbps uplink. This is an octa-core processor and has some special tweaks built in for 3D graphic performance and minimized latency for 4K UHD VR and gaming experiences. This processor is looking pretty amazing.

We are a little more than a month away from the official release of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8. We know just about everything there is to know about this phone, and now we have some intel on a few of the accessories that will release alongside the S8. First up is the all new "Faster Wireless Charger" leaked out by "Roland Quandt" of WinFuture. He has obtained the official model number of the new device (EP-PG950) along with some other details.

The new Qi Charger is supposedly faster than the current fast wireless charger. The charger will feature a Qi base. This base will apparently be capable of charging the S8 and S8+ at 15W with a 9V/1.67A wireless charge and a 10W 5V/2A standard charge. The main difference here is that the charging base will be powered by a USB Type-C cable rather than a micro USB cable.

Roland also had some information regarding the new and improved Gear VR. This will be essentially the same product as what we have seen in the past. Of course it will be designed to fit the S8 and S8+. The updated Gear VR will be model number SM-R324 and will feature a new front cover to hold the Galaxy S8. There will also be a single hand controller that should make VR gaming and simply scrolling around much easier and user friendly.

We have not heard anything so far about cases or battery packs, but you can rest assured that we will see those alongside the release of the devices as well. Samsung fans go nuts over these Samsung...

The video above demonstrates Disney's latest advancements in fully wireless charging solutions. Their "Quasistatic Cavity Resonance for Ubiquitous Wireless Power Transfer" can power up devices with no wires anywhere in a room. The room contains "purpose built structures" made of aluminum. There is also a copper pipe in the center of the room which has capacitors attached to it. This can create about 1900 watts of free flowing non human harming power. The technology is obviously in the very early stages, but research suggest that many of the limitations on the current system are temporary. Disney is no doubt hoping for a future where park guest can enter a line que and their phone will start charging. These types of wireless solutions could also mean that animatronics may soon be able to freely roam the park interacting with guests without the need for power cords. I wouldn't be surprised if Disney is able to license the finished product to other theme parks, malls, and places of business. The future is here folks!

So there you have it. Verizon is officially the last of the four major carriers to update the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. They gained this distinction today as Sprint began the official roll out of Nougat to their Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users. Beta users will be the first to receive the official update from Sprint. If on beta the update will only weigh in at 167mb while the full update for those of you still on Marshmallow will weigh in at 1.2GB. Grab the update by heading to Settings>Software Update>Software Manual Download.

Today we got a handful of photos of the Galaxy S8. These photos show the device powered on and we get a full look at the front of the device. We can clearly see the nearly bezeless display with no home button. We can also see the back navigation on screen button in the bottom right hand corner. Another image shows off the always on display. Another image shows the thickness of the device, and it looks surprisingly beefy. A final image shows the camera and iris scanner placement. The device is like an improved Note 7. I am personally enjoying the design language of this device. What are your thoughts?

The days of CyanogenMod are officially behind us as Lineage OS continues to chug along. While it is not the same it does provide us with what we needed from CyanogenMod which is a pure Google Android experience on devices that otherwise include an OEM skin. One of the main features of CyanogenMod has been the inclusion of the Theme Engine. Theme Engine themes are able to theme every aspect of the rom including the framework. Over time Substratum, based on Sony's Overlay Management System, has really begun to gain ground and many CMTE theme developers had moved their talents over to it.

CyanogenMod Theme Engine may be dead according to sources. During a chat between "sykopompos" the lead developer of Substratum and Lineage it was stated that "Clark" has moved on from CMTE. The fact that Lineage is having talks with Substratum's lead developer is not good for CMTE. It could still be merged into Lineage, but it looks like this is the end for the popular theme manager.
