    Yeah I mean don't get me wrong, when Win10 works, it works great. I love the UI and I always did my main app development on a Win 10 VM and never really had issues on it. Just doesn't seem to play well on my laptop

    Don't have anything useful to say wrt the display problems (sorry), but I've also had generally positive experiences with Win 10. I actually willingly switched to Win 8 back when it first came out and always preferred it to Win 7, too. Whenever I have to use a machine with 7 it feels slightly less responsive overall, but maybe it's my imagination.

    Samsung Suddenly Exposes Radical New Galaxy Smartphone

    Pretty incredible. Samsung is working on tech to hide cameras and sensors behind an OLED display panel so they are completely hidden when not in-use. Say goodbye to notches and hello to bezel-less displays

    Theyre also revolutionizing how in-display finger print scanners can work, and looking into tech to use the screen itself as a single giant surface to conduct sound

    Just got an Amazon Fire Stick (yey for watching Netflix without my PS4 sounding like a small plane). Any other apps that are necessary or can someone point me to the discussion if it's happened before?

    I've never used one, but let me know if it got YouTube back. I've been interested in getting a 4K one since they're so affordable, but no YouTube is a deal breaker for me (in case you weren't aware, Google and Amazon have been having very childish fights for years now)

    Yeah I read about not having YouTube unless it's on the browser but they do have an app now that comes up when you access through Silk. Was going to got the 4K for for £39.99 which was a good deal. Going to the stick of my parents because they want to be able to watch Netflix and Prime. Looks be you get what you pay for.

    Any app recommendations, be it apk or app would help

    I tweeted out that it reminds me of a logo for a middling hotel chain

    Why do companies do this? Do they just get too big and have design teams that need to justify their existence?
