YouTube Red and Google Music may eventually merge to one service

Google has been looking into some kind of unity for the streaming services that it offers. Currently, if you sign up for Google Play Music, you'll get YouTube Red included for free (and vice-versa), which gives access to exclusive content, removes ads from YouTube, and lets you download YouTube videos to watch offline. YouTube's head of music, Lyor Cohen, has confirmed that Google Music and YouTube Red need to be merged in order to educate consumers and bring in new subscribers. This should come in some sort of unification and/or rebranding of the subscription service. In a...



Galaxy S8 to bring new version of Samsung’s signature ringtone

Samsung has joined forces with Grammy Award winner Jacob Collier for a new version of its recognizable tune Over the Horizon. In its 2017 version the ringtone sounds the richest you've ever heard. What makes Samsung's tune unique is that it's always evolving each year.

In his version Jacob Collier is full of different layers with a mix of contemporary jazz, pop and dance. In his rendition Collier uses 16 instruments including drums, a bass...

Deal: save a few quid off an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus with a 1-month contract

You'll have to trade many portraits of Her Majesty to grab an iPhone 8. Carphone Warehouse has a slightly better deal than the £700 that Apple charges - you can get the 64GB phone for £660 and a one-month contract on Vodafone, O2 or EE. That single month will cost you between £14.5 and £17. You don't get much data or call time, but you can switch to a better plan in 30 days. Keep in mind that most subsidized deals for the iPhone 8 typically ask for £50 a month for two years, so you'll get over the £700 SIM free price pretty quickly. If you're interested in more storage, the 256GB...



Samsung Galaxy J6 is in the works, Geekbench reveals

Samsung seems intent on massively expanding its J-series of smartphones this year. We've already seen the upcoming Galaxy J4 and J8 in benchmarks, and now it's time to gawk at the Geekbench listing for the yet-unannounced Galaxy J6, identified by its model number SM-J600F. This being a member of the J line, it's a mid-ranger of course. It comes with the Exynos 7870 chipset, which interestingly powers the Galaxy J5 (2017) as well. It has a 1.6 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and is built on the 14nm process. Since it supports a maximum screen resolution of 1,920x1,200 we expect the J6 to have...
