Mac Drag-and-Drop App ‘Yoink’ Gains Continuity Camera Support and New Shelf Actions

Multiple Reviewers Facing Broken Galaxy Fold Devices After Just Days of Use

Samsung this week provided reviewers with Galaxy Fold devices for some hands-on time, and it appears the folding smartphone may be suffering from some serious flaws. Three of the reviewers who received a Galaxy Fold have already experienced failures, all of which focus on the display.

The Verge’s Dieter Bohn says that his Galaxy Fold device broke after a random bulge appeared on the display, perhaps from a piece of debris that had gotten into the hinge. The debris, or whatever the bulge was, pressed into the display hard enough to break it.

Disney CEO Bob Iger Staying on Apple’s Board, Will ‘Continue to Monitor’ Situation

Disney CEO Bob Iger has sat down with CNBC’s David Faber to discuss a wide range of topics, including the company’s upcoming streaming service Disney+ and how that will impact his position on Apple’s board of directors.
