When was the last time you went to the shops, bought a newspaper, sat down and read it from cover to cover?
I honestly can’t remember the last time I did that. It was probably for a college assignment or something. Ask someone ten or fifteen years ago and they would’ve probably thought the fact that someone like me existed was absurd. But that’s the thing about technology: It’s ruthless.
It will devour everything in its path, all in the name of moving forward and while that’s brilliant, it’s also incredibly scary. I studied Journalism and during my four years in college, my lecturers all insisted that the newspaper will always be around as a medium. Then I see stories like these, and videos like these and suddenly, I’m not so sure anymore.
The same could probably be said about film. With how accessible, portable and amazing 360-degree cameras have got over the years, is this the beginning of the end for traditional rectangular filmmaking?
An interesting report has popped up from Reuters that claims South Korean Electronics giant Samsung has a plan in motion to sell refurbished versions of their high-end flagship smartphones.

A few days ago, we highlighted an interesting video from YouTuber JerryRigEverything which saw the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note7 undergo various stress tests to determine its durability. It was a very painful but also pretty useful video because it showed us just how scratch-resistant the new Gorilla Glass 5 screen was.
If you want the TL;DW version, it wasn’t particularly scratch resistant. Clearly a big problem for Corning, then. Well, back then we only saw JerryRigEverything’s side of the story. Now, thanks to AndroidAuthority, we get to hear Corning’s side.

When MDEC announced that coding would be integrated into Malaysia’s national school curriculum, I was a little disappointed to see that many were caught up with how the program would fail rather than see how much benefit this would bring to our youth.
Perhaps the negativity was justified because when it was first announced, details were a little scarce and the overall direction and how it was going to be implemented was a little too vague. Today though, at the launch of the My Digital Maker program, MDEC and the Ministry of Education (MoE) got together and went into further detail on exactly how coding would be implemented into our national school curriculum.
