Rugged Samsung Galaxy S8 Active receives a green light from the FCC

Image
The rugged version of Samsung's latest flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, has been certified by the FCC. The AT&T exclusive landed on Geekbench recently, revealing that it will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset.

Last year, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active featured a 4000mAh battery, topping the 3000mAh cell inside the Samsung Galaxy S7.

Best kickstand cases for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+

Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ feature two of the largest displays available on flagship phones in 2017, measuring 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches, respectively.

We Should All Bow Down To Dinosaur Jr.

Source: riotfest.org --- Friday, June 30, 2017
They never had any massive hits like Nirvana or Pearl Jam; they never so defined a sub-genre, nor generated as many direct copycats, as My Bloody Valentine did with shoegaze; they never had quite the tastemaking cachet of Sonic Youth. So, what is it about Dinosaur Jr. that makes them a big deal? What is it about them that still makes record store clerks quiver, that still brings countless guitar-loving souls to bellow their hallowed name from the mountaintop? Well, for starters, every band mentioned above, among countless others, dipped deep into Dinosaur’s well of ideas to fill their own respective buckets. In fact, J. Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph basically provided the blueprint for ’90s indie rock half a decade early, given that they were maybe the first post-punk band to make long hair, Neil Young worship, loud/quiet/loud dynamics, ennui-laden vocals, and wicked guitar solos safe for a generation weaned on hardcore–and the fact that …

If you ever loved 'Doctor Who,' now is the time to watch

There are a dozen very good reasons why you might have stopped watching Doctor Who. Maybe you're a holdout from the classic series, which ran from 1963 to 1989. Maybe you loved Christopher Eccleston in the role and couldn't stand David Tennant; maybe you're a die-hard Ten fan who loathed Matt Smith. More likely, you've been turned off at some point in the Peter Capaldi era. No doubt you love the grumpy old Scot himself, but showrunner Steven Moffat's increasingly twisty scripts, reset-button endings and preference for jokes over satisfying plot points have left many former fans with Who fatigue.  Read more...
