Samsung to unveil new Galaxy and Ativ Windows devices on June 20


 Samsung to unveil new Galaxy and Ativ Windows devices on June 20Only a few months after Samsung debuted its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, the company is gearing up to launch a new set of devices.
Samsung announced this morning that it will hold an event in London on June 20, where it will highlight new Galaxy (Android-based) and ATIV (Windows-based) gadgets. For those not local, it’ll be livestreamed at Samsung’s mobile YouTube page.
There’s a chance we could see a new Galaxy Note smartphone — the Note 2 was announced last August — and perhaps a refresh of the company’s Galaxy tablet line. Over the past few years, Samsung has been increasingly focused on its Note tablet lineup, but the company could potentially refresh its Galaxy Tab slates with a lower price to compete with other cheap Android tablets.

As for Ativ, Samsung’s brand for all of its Windows devices, we could potentially see Samsung explore new tablet and Ultrabook designs. Its Ativ smart PCs sport removable screens, so they can function as both tablets and notebooks. At this point, I’m excited to see what Samsung comes up with for the Windows 8 Ultrabook ecosystem.

Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now.

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
