New Galaxy A5 could get a curved display

Samsung may Put Curved Display on its Galaxy A5 ,something that right now only its highest-end phones have: a curved screen, according to leaked renderings and rumors that are tied to the phone. Samsung is the only device maker currently selling phones with wraparound displays (LG seems to have stopped, at least for now) -- that makes a curved screen a giant selling point that no other rival can offer. Compared to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung's Galaxy A devices are lower-cost phones with more midrange specs. If rumors of a curved A7 screen are true, we wonder if Samsung would extend the bendable display other other, more basic phones that
Samsung sells. If the A5 for 2017 winds up with a curved screen, it's a good bet that the upcoming Galaxy S8 will have it, too.

The next update to this year's Galaxy A5 is also rumored to have:

5.2-inch 1080p screen with Gorilla Glass 4
16-megapixel front and rear cameras
32GB of storage
3GB of RAM
3,000mAh battery
Water resistance
Fingerprint scanner
Aluminum frame, with glass back cover
USB Type-C port
Dual SIM
Samsung declined to comment on the Galaxy A5 specs for 2017.

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
