On October 2nd the giant tech company, Microsoft,
will hold a big event that will be streamed live, which is already unusual for
Sources and rumors tell that it might be one of the most
important events the company had in years.
We hope Microsoft
will share more than just the new Surface computers.
We will probably see new models for the successful surface
computers such as Surface Pro 7, Surface Book 3 and Surface Laptop 3.
Microsoft might share new details about the “Project
Centaurus” – small folding laptop based on a new operation system called
Windows Core OS.
There is a possibility than Microsoft will also share
details about a secret project called ‘Andromeda’ – cell phone \ tiny computer based
on Core OS.
This operation system is source for all the rumors due to
the fact that it intended for devices that needs light OS, good battery usage
and that can keep active and connected to the internet all day long, even if
the device is not in use.
According to sources, Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO will
attend the event – very promising.
About 15 years ago tech companies took pride in making small
cell phones, but now it seems like we prefer tablet size phones.
Samsung tried to get the best of both worlds, making a phone
with relatively big screen but with folding function so it will fit in your pocket
– Samsung Galaxy Fold.
Galaxy Fold comes with 7.3-inch screen that will allow you
to run 3 apps at the same time with a unique feature of split screen.
It has 6 cameras – 1 in the front, 2 on the sides and 3 in
the back. It has one of the largest batteries for a smart phone – 4,380mAh.
We are still not sure about the price but it should be
pretty expensive – about $2,000.
The president and CEO of Samsung Electronics, DJ Koh said –
“The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that
defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design. We’re excited to release
this pioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for
themselves. Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the
Samsung Galaxy Fold’s revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive
screen without sacrificing portability. This is what we call innovation of new
mobile experience in action.”
And what about the release date?
It is already available in South Korea since September 6th,
and will be released in the UK on September 18th.
Few reporters got access to the new smart phone but weren’t
happy about it-

It seems like the reporter didn’t follow the user manual and
took off a protective layer that shouldn’t be removed at all. Samsung released
a statement regarding those issues and said –
“A limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were
provided to media for review. We have received a few reports regarding the main
display on the samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in
person to determine the cause of the matter. Separately, a few reviewers
reported having removed the top layer of the display causing damage to the
screen. The main display on the Galaxy Fold features a top protective layer,
which is part of the display structure designed to protect the screen from
unintended scratches. Removing the protective layer or adding adhesives to the main
display may cause damage. We will ensure this information is clearly delivered
to our customers.”

LLC, one of Lebron’s companies, has filled an application to trademark “Taco
A company owned by Lebron James, LBJ Trademarks LLC, has filed a trademark for TACO TUESDAY.
The filing indicates Lebron intends to continue offering his popular 'TACO TUESDAY' posts on social media and launch a podcast under the name.
As it stated in the application – “advertising and
marketing services provided by means of indirect methods of marketing,
communications, namely, social media, search engine marketing, inquiry
marketing, mobile marketing, blogging and other forms of passive, shareable or

JUST IN: LeBron James leaves no potential business opportunity on the table. Over time, he has sought to own “Taco Tuesday.” He has now filed to trademark the phrase for social media posts and a show of that name. First discovered by @JoshGerbenpic.twitter.com/IXNduvilzR
It’s seems like his move to the Los Angeles Lakers wasn’t entirely
base on basketball but on business as well as the good of his family.
Lebron started shooting Space Jam 2 in July and his son,
Lebron James Junior, who is known for his great potential, will play in Sierra Canyon
HS alongside the son of NBA legend Dwayne Wade, Zaire Wade.
This was the official statement – “Two of the three
occupants were trapped in the vehicle. The remaining occupant and owner of the
vehicle, Kevin Hart, left the scene to his nearby residence to get medical
attention. The driver was located in the driver’s seat of the vehicle and
determined not to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the
collision. Hart and Black sustained major back injuries as a result of this
collision and were transported and treated at nearby hospitals (Northridge –
Hart, UCLA Westwood – Black).”
Matthew McConaughey is back to his University in Texas which
he graduated in 1993 after getting a degree in film. Now he is a full-time film
professor at the Department of Radio-Television-Film in the Moody College of Communication.
McConaughey has already been a visiting professor in the
past 4 years but now he got an official recognition as Jay Bernhardt, Dean of
Moody College said: “We are proud to welcome Professor McConaughey to
officially join our world-class faculty. Matthew cares deeply for our school
and our students, and we are thrilled that he shares his time and talent to
help prepare the next generation of media leaders and innovators.”
The famous actor is has appeared in about 50 movies and tv
series, won an Oscar for his memorable role in “Dallas Buyers Club” and his role
as a broker in wall street in “The Wolf of Wall Street”.
The new professor published a statement – “It’s the class I
wish I would have had when I was in film school. Working in the classroom with these
students gives me a chance to prepare them. Making movies, turning words on
paper into film, is both a science and art – no matter the time or generation.
The elements of truth and genuine joy for the process are timeless. That will
always be our classroom focus.”
We are sure most students just appreciate the fact that they
can learn from one of the best actors in Hollywood and only the future will
tell if McConaughey could pass his knowledge to the next generation and will be
able to shape our culture through his students.
