In the source article, there was an interesting comment about how this whole overheating issue may be a big conspiracy by Samsung to herd people towards the Exynos processor.

At this point, looking at the data provided from this side-by-side comparison, I'm only left with more questions. The tests run by the source are experiences that a normal user would find themselves in when using a Snapdragon 810-powered smart device, but I would like to know what stress tests were being performed that even prompted LG to state that there were overheating issues initially.

Check out my full article below.

In a recent study using side-by-side comparison, online blog STJS Gadgets Portal is reporting that overheating issues with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 may be blown out of proportion. The comparison...

Hubble Observes Jupiter & 3 moons transiting

A relatively rare "triple occultation" of Europa, Callisto & Io was visible to astronomers late last month. Not only are we able to see three of the four Galilean Moon, but we're seeing their shadows on the face of the planet at the same time! 

The +Hubble Space Telescope team chose to observe this event that happens once or twice a decade and wow amd I glad they did! 

This is a small version of the animation that came from stills taken by Hubble. It's also the topic of today's #HubbleHangout  at noon Pacific/3pm Eastern! RSVP to the event here: http://goo.gl/cccsZV

I really enjoyed writing this article. I had to suppress my laughter the entire time... And that picture from Science Over A Cuppa had me rolling!

Story
Tagline
I'm getting slightly irritated.
Introduction
If you're looking for the legend, you've probably typed his name wrong in Google and wound up here.

In 2011, Joseph bought his first smartphone: Sprint's variant of the Samsung Galaxy SII, the Epic 4G Touch. And the rest, as they say, is history. 
Joseph has been an occasional journalist since his college years at the University of Oklahoma, where he was an opinion columnist for the OU Daily. His main interests have always been science and technology, especially gadgets. 
He lives in Oklahoma City with his wife of nearly 10 years. They have two dogs and two cats and, being animals, are jobless and do not support the family income.
Bragging rights
I once convinced my father to crawl under a rattlesnake infested boulder to retrieve a cell phone I conveniently dropped under it.
