That’s just one of the fascinating philosophical views the CEO shared during the first of his public talks he’s promised as part of his 2019 […]

  • Samsung’s Galaxy Fold might only launch on two of the big US carriers
    by Jacob Kastrenakes on February 20, 2019 at 11:01 pm

    Samsung’s very fancy foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold, will be available on two carriers when it launches in the US in a couple months: AT&T and T-Mobile. As for everyone else? Samsung hasn’t said, but for now, it sounds like the initial model of the Fold won’t launch on Verizon and Sprint. It’s not clear if that means the Fold outright won’t work on those two carriers, but that may be the case. Verizon and Sprint rely on a different mobile technology for their 3G networks, and it’s possible the Fold just doesn’t include support. Sometimes, unsupported phones can still access LTE on Verizon and Sprint, but it isn’t guaranteed. Perhaps Verizon gets the 5G version? This is a particularly surprising detail given that Verizon is getting an... Continue reading […]

  • How the Samsung Galaxy S10 measures up against the iPhone XS and the Pixel 3
    by Shannon Liao on February 20, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    Where the Samsung Galaxy S9 phones last year felt mostly iterative, the latest S10 devices are some of the company’s biggest changes yet, with the company’s modus operandi being to win over customers that didn’t shell out for an upgrade last year. The latest S10 flagship phones are packing a punch — they have more RAM, larger storage options, newer Snapdragon processors, better screen resolution, and Wi-Fi 6 support. That means that for almost the same weight and dimensions, these phones should be faster and better for streaming Netflix in HD while on the go. There are three rear cameras rather than two and the S10 Plus has dual selfie cameras as well — along with a built-in Instagram mode. While that all sounds impressive, the past...

  • Staffing Industry Class Action Report—Part I
    by Nick Montgomery on February 14, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    Staffing firm clients have increasingly adopted policies limiting the length of assignment of staffing firm workers as way to protect against the kind of "retro-benefits" claims faced by Microsoft. Some client policies appear to be based on the erroneous belief that, after working for a certain period of time, staffing firm employees are automatically eligible for coverage under the client's benefits plans. To help dispel some of the common misperceptions, ASA has developed an issue paper that discusses the basic principles of law that apply to employee benefit plans and the steps clients can take to avoid retro-benefits exposure.
