[Update: Unboxing video] Galaxy Watch 3 hands-on video confirms specs, hardware and software additions – 9to5Google

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 has now leaked in a hands-on video showcasing the updated design and confirms the internals plus several new hardware and software additions.


[Update 07/28]: The Galaxy Watch 3 has now appeared in a proper unboxing video courtesy of YouTuber The Mobile Central ahead of its unveiling at Unpacked 2020 next week alongside the Note 20 series, Tab S7/S7+, and Galaxy Buds Live.

The unboxing video showcases the Mystic Bronze colorway, which comes complete with a bronze-style strap. It’s a far greater (and higher resolution) look than the previous glimpses, with the 41mm crown being particularly small when compared to the Galaxy Watch Frontier Edition and the previous generation. The color is one of the most impressive new addition.

The rotating bezel showcases the same Galaxy Watch setup that we’ve all come to know and love, but you can get a proper look in the full video below:


This short hands-on video has been uploaded to YouTube by TechTalkTV and while the three-minute video doesn’t throw up many major surprises, it does confirm a lot of what we already knew plus gives us a proper look at the brand new hardware.

We get a glimpse of the 41mm version of the Galaxy Watch 3, which comes with a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with a physical outer bezel. That bezel looks as though it has been shrunk down quite substantially compared to previous generations, while the buttons are far flatter than previous models too.

The design feels like a revision of previous Galaxy Watch models but with some important revisions. The rotating bezel will let you control much of the UI — which is a core selling point of the device. IP68 water and dust resistance plus 5ATM ratings mean that this smartwatch will be ideal for active wearers.

This short video also confirms that the Galaxy Watch 3 will come with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. The stainless steel frame and leather strap are also showcased, which was also known thanks to rating board listings over the last few weeks.

One notable addition is that of an ECG measurement sensor and blood pressure monitor. Again, all of these additions ensure that the Galaxy Watch 3 can keep pace with the Apple Watch Series 5 in terms of features.

We were expecting to see the Galaxy Watch 3 ahead of the Note 20 series but it looks like it will be unveiled alongside the upcoming flagship smartphones. Let us know what you’re hoping for from the Galaxy Unpacked event down in the comments section below.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, seen here in March, spoke on the House floor Thursday to address vulgar and sexist comments she says were directed at her by a Republican colleague.

Updated at 1:26 p.m. ET

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to the House floor Thursday morning to admonish the insults hurled at her by Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., earlier this week.

Yoho confronted Ocasio-Cortez on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, Ocasio-Cortez said, calling her “disgusting” for linking poverty to crime rates in New York City.

“I was minding my own business walking up the steps, and Rep. Yoho put his finger in my face. He called me disgusting. He called me crazy. He called me out of my mind. And he called me dangerous,” she said.

The congresswoman said she told Yoho his comments were rude and walked away to cast her vote. Then, as The Hill first reported, Yoho was overheard using a vulgar insult often aimed at women.

“There were reporters in the front of the Capitol, and in front of reporters Rep. Yoho called me, and I quote, a ‘f*****g bitch,’ ” she said.

Ocasio-Cortez said Yoho was accompanied by Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas, who did not interject on her behalf but instead joined in on insulting her. Williams has denied hearing or participating in the incident.

Ocasio-Cortez, a key voice in the progressive movement and a frequent target of Republicans, said that kind of verbal abuse isn’t new and she’s concerned about an increasing acceptance of dehumanizing and misogynistic language toward women.

“This issue is not about one incident. It is cultural. It is a culture of lack of impunity, of accepting of violence and violent language against women and an entire structure of power that supports that,” she said.

Watch her remarks here. (Note: The video includes the profanity.)

Yoho reflected on his comments a day earlier on the House floor. Without naming Ocasio-Cortez, Yoho apologized for the “abrupt manner of the conversation I had with my colleague from New York.”

He said he “cannot apologize for my passion” over the issue of poverty, having experienced it himself.

On the allegation that he used a pejorative, Yoho said, “Having been married for 45 years with two daughters, I’m very cognizant of my language. The offensive name-calling, words attributed to me by the press, were never spoken to my colleagues, and if they were construed that way, I apologize for their misunderstanding.”

Republican responds to calling a colleague “disgusting” & a “f—ing b*tch” w/ “I cannot apologize for my passion” and blaming others.

I will not teach my nieces and young people watching that this an apology, and what they should learn to accept.

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 22, 2020

Ocasio-Cortez said Yoho’s comments on Wednesday prompted her to address the controversy. She described his remarks as making “excuses for his behavior.”

“I could not allow my nieces, I could not allow the little girls that I go home to, I could not allow victims of verbal abuse, and worse, to see that. To see that excuse, and see our Congress accept it as legitimate and accept it as an apology and to accept silence as a form of acceptance. I could not allow that to stand,” she said.

She reprimanded Yoho for using his family members as a “shield” for his foul language.

“Having a daughter does not make a man decent. Having a wife does not make a decent man. Treating people with dignity and respect makes a decent man. And when a decent man messes up, as we all are bound to do, he tries his best and does apologize,” she said.

“I am someone’s daughter, too. My father, thankfully, is not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter,” she went on to say. “My mother got to see Mr. Yoho’s disrespect on the floor of this House towards me on television. And I am here because I have to show my parents that I am their daughter and that they did not raise me to accept abuse from men.”

GOP Senators And White House Still Discussing Final Details Of Coronavirus Aid Bill

Following Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks, Democratic colleagues joined in condemning Yoho’s comments and called on him to issue a formal apology.

“What my colleague from Florida did was unacceptable,” said Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash. “It was violent. It was sexist. And I do believe he needs to apologize. Not because it’s going to make our colleague Ms. Ocasio-Cortez feel any better, but because he too needs to learn what unacceptable behavior looks like and rise to the level of the office that he has been elected to.”

Speaking to reporters later on Thursday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said he thought Yoho’s response was sufficient.

“In America, I know people make mistakes. We’re a forgiving nation. I also think when someone apologizes, they should be forgiven,” he said. “I don’t understand that we’re going to take another hour on the floor to debate whether the apology was good enough or not.”

Asked if his party had a “women problem,” McCarthy said there are more women in the Republican Party running for Congress than at any other time in history.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Launches Political Group To Boost Progressive Candidates

In her weekly press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called Yoho’s comments a “manifestation of attitudes in our society” and noted that she has been called offensive names for the past 18 years.

“The word I use for them is ‘condescending’ in addition to being disrespectful,” Pelosi said.

“There’s no limit to the disrespect or the lack of acknowledgement of the strength of women and nothing is more wholesome for our government, for our politics, for our country, than the increased participation of women and women will be treated with respect,” she said.

New video offers hands-on look at iPhone 12 dummy units in all three rumored sizes – 9to5Mac

The iPhone 12 is expected to be available in three different sizes: 5.4-inches, 6.1-inches, and 6.7-inches. Ahead of the expected announcement this fall, the YouTube channel iupdate has shared a detailed hands-on video with all three rumored iPhone 12 form factors.

As a recap, Apple is expected to introduce four different iPhone 12 variations, including a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models, and a 6.7-inch option. All four are expected to feature this design similar to the iPhone 4 and iPad Pro, as well as OLED and 5G connectivity.

The hands-on video illustrates much of what previous reports have indicated about the iPhone 12 lineup. For example, reports had suggested that the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 model will have a height that is “midway between the original iPhone SE and iPhone 8,” while the 6.1-inch version will be midway between the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 will be “slightly taller than the iPhone 11 Pro Max.”

One of the most interesting things to note here is that the body of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 is physically smaller than the iPhone SE 2, even though it features a larger display. This is, of course, due to the fact that the iPhone 12 features a near-bezeless design, where as the iPhone SE 2 features large top and bottom bezels with a home button.

Something else important to point out is that the camera array on these dummy iPhone units is not final, nor should the design of the notch be taken as final. iPhone 12 molds and CAD drawings have hit the web in the past, but these did not factor in a smaller notch design simply because that change doesn’t affect case makers. These dummy units fall into the same category.

As for the camera, rumors have suggested that the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will feature two cameras on the back, with ultra-wide and wide-angle lenses. The same setup is expected on the lower-end 6.1-inch iPhone 12, while the higher-end iPhone 12 Pro models are expected to feature wide, ultra-wide, and telephoto lenses, alongside a LiDAR Scanner.

Check out the full video from iupdate below and let us know what you think of this design down in the comments!

Microsoft will end its video game streaming service, tells everyone to use Facebook instead – CNBC

Gamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins high-fives fans as he arrives to the Epic Games Fortnite E3 Tournament at the Banc of California Stadium on June 12, 2018, in Los Angeles, California.

Microsoft is giving up on running its own video streaming service for playing games, Mixer, and encouraging people who watch and create content for it to move to Facebook’s competing service. 

The choice shows Microsoft opting to step back from a portion of the game software market where it has failed to gain dominance, although the company remains focused on game development, console hardware and a cloud service for playing games that run on remote servers. It also plans to release a new version of the Xbox video game console later this year.

The move comes less than four years after it acquired Beam, the game streaming start-up that Microsoft rebranded to Mixer in 2017. The Beam acquisition followed Amazon’s 2014 acquisition of Twitch, which has remained dominant.

With people staying home to reduce spread of the coronavirus in recent months, Twitch users spent more time watching people play games, but the increase was not as pronounced for Mixer, despite being smaller, according to a an analysis of data from privately held Stream Hatchet by the Streamlabs, a company whose software helps people run their videos on Twitch and other services.

“Ultimately, the success of Partners and streamers on Mixer is dependent on our ability to scale the service for them as quickly and broadly as possible,” Phil Spencer, the Microsoft executive  vice president in charge of the company’s gaming efforts, wrote in a blog post on Monday. “It became clear that the time needed to grow our own livestreaming community to scale was out of measure with the vision and experiences we want to deliver to gamers now, so we’ve decided to close the operations side of Mixer and help the community transition to a new platform.”

Microsoft sought to grow the Mixer user base by signing deals with major creators, including Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, to come over to the service. Matt Salsamendi, a co-founder of Beam, announced his departure from Microsoft in October 2019. 

The Mixer service will remain available through July 22, and after that the homepage will redirect to the Facebook website fb.gg. The ability to stream to Mixer from the Xbox One will go away, although gamers will be able to keep streaming to Twitch.

Facebook has been expanding its efforts in gaming in recent years as it looks to find new markets outside of online advertising. It acquired virtual reality headset maker Oculus for $2 billion in 2014, and began selling the Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S VR headsets in May of this year.

In November 2016, Facebook announced Instant Games, consisting of light games for the Facebook and Messenger apps that are built on the HTML5 software stack. The company launched Facebook Gaming, its Twitch rival, in 2018, making it possible for users to livestream their gameplay to others on the social network. The company claims that over 700 million users engage with gaming content in some fashion each month.

Facebook and Microsoft see opportunities to work together more, including around the cloud streaming service xCloud, which is in preview.

“Imagine a scenario where people can instantly move from watching a Facebook Gaming creator’s livestream to jumping in and playing the game with their closest friends, all in one click,” Vivek Sharma, head of Facebook Gaming, wrote in a blog post. “Project xCloud can help change the way people discover games by expanding our Playable Ads format, enabling Xbox games on your mobile device. While scrolling News Feed, people could try out awesome games from Xbox Game Pass immediately, further blurring the line between discovery and play.”

Similarly, Spencer wrote that Microsoft is keen to introduce the ability to let people click to play from Facebook Gaming and Instagram.

‘Do You Feel Any Remorse?’: Video Shows Ex-MPD Officer J. Alexander Kueng Confronted At Grocery Store – CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A video posted to Twitter shows a fired Minneapolis police officer — who was charged in George Floyd’s death and later released from jail — being confronted at a grocery store over the weekend.

According to the Twitter post, the confrontation occurred at the Cub Foods in Plymouth. In the video, J. Alexander Kueng is confronted and confirms his identity to the person filming, who asks Kueng why he’s “comfortably shopping” as if he didn’t do anything.

“I wouldn’t call it ‘comfortably,’” Kueng responds. “I would just say ‘getting necessities.’”

When the person filming says he shouldn’t have the right to buy groceries — or be out on bail — he responds, “I can understand that. I’m sorry you feel that way.”

The video continues with the person filming asking Kueng if he has any remorse and informing others in the store of his identity. He later says he just wants to pay for his stuff and go. As of 1:30 p.m., the video was viewed more than 1.4 million times.

Kueng was one of the officers — including Derek Chauvin, Tou Thao and Thomas Lane — that responded to the call about the alleged use of a counterfeit $20 bill on Memorial Day at Cup Foods on East 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in south Minneapolis.

Chauvin has been charged with second- and third-degree murder, and third-degree manslaughter. The other officers, have been charged with aiding and abetting both second-degree unintentional murder and second-degree manslaughter in connection to the fatal restraint of George Floyd.

Hennepin County Jail’s roster notes that Kueng was released Friday at 7:27 p.m. His bail had been set at $750,000. Lane was previously released on June 10. All four are expected to make their next court appearance on June 29.

Bodycam video shows officer punching Alabama store owner who called 911 to report robbery – NBC News

Authorities in Alabama showed body-camera video Monday of a police officer punching a liquor store owner who called 911 to report a robbery in March.

The owner of the store, Kevin Penn, of Decatur, suffered a broken jaw in the confrontation March 15 and was charged with obstruction after refusing to put down a gun, NBC affiliate WAFF of Huntsville reported.

Let our news meet your inbox. The news and stories that matters, delivered weekday mornings.

The video shows the officer striking Penn after a brief argument.

Penn’s lawyer, Carl Cole, told AL.com that Penn showed the gun to the officers to make sure they knew he was armed. He then removed the clip and ejected the bullet from the chamber, Cold told the site.

Decatur Police Chief Nate Allen told reporters that the officer punched Penn “when he became more agitated and angry” and put his hand over a gun on the store counter.

“That’s what caused the immediate charge of the officer,” he said.

Asked whether it was proper procedure to punch someone, Allen said the department’s policies require using the least amount of force “to get the job done.”

“I’d much rather have a punch than a shooting,” he added.

Allen said a suspect was later apprehended for shoplifting at the liquor store. The officer who punched Penn is on administrative duty during an internal investigation, he said.

Video shows off-duty officer rescuing hiker trapped in California whirlpool – NBC News

An off-duty state patrol officer rescued a drowning hiker using a rope and a stick this weekend after he became trapped in a whirlpool in the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada mountains.

Video of the incident, posted by the Madera County Sheriff’s Office, showed the 24-year-old Fresno man struggling to grab the line in swift-moving water before he is eventually pulled to safety.

Let our news meet your inbox. The news and stories that matters, delivered weekday mornings.

In a Facebook post, the sheriff’s office said the water, overwhelmed with snow runoff, was flowing at 50 to 80 cubic feet per second.

“That’s about like 50-80 basketballs full of water every second,” the office said.

The incident occurred at Angel Falls in Sierra National Forest, between Fresno and Yosemite National Park, at noon Saturday, authorities said.

The hiker, who had been walking along a creek, misjudged how fast the water was moving when he decided to cross, the sheriff’s office said. He was swept into a whirlpool and held under before an officer with the California Highway Patrol rescued him.

The officer, Brent Donley, happened to be hiking in the area and was trained in search-and-rescue techniques, the sheriff’s office said.

“This Search and Rescue call could have ended very badly if not for his help,” the sheriff’s office said. “Please — if you are planning on visiting the mountains — do not attempt to cross swift water and make safety part of your plan.”
