The U.S. Army Special Operations Command is planning to tell Android to stand down.

Glowing reviews for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge have been translated into stellar sales for Samsung.

The South Korean company’s latest handsets have been so successful this year that they’ve helped itĀ overtake Apple to become number one smartphone maker in the U.S.

The developers behind Lumi, a news curation service and new mobile app, want to change how you discover news. Instead of asking you to pick topics from a long list, like Apple News or Flipboard, Lumi uses magic background algorithms to offer you news stories that actually match your news reading habits.

The service uses Twitter and Facebook to discover your browsing preferences and then presents you with news stories, one at a time, asking you to swipe left (no) or right (yes) like a dating app to help refine what it sends to you. It’s like Tinder for news hounds.
