Zoom is an easy-to-use videoconferencing tool with a generous free tier. With people around the world isolating indoors to protect themselves against the spread of the coronavirus, it has never been more popular.

But its popularity has also attracted trolls. The phenomenon of “Zoombombing,” in which an uninvited guest uses Zoom’s screen-sharing feature to broadcast porn and shock videos, has been on the rise.

LG appears to be embracing the mantra “go big or go home.” The LG V60 ThinQ 5G is not only physically enormous, it’s a big gamble for LG in the face of stiff competition from Samsung and others. The V60 marks the third phone from LG to feature an optional second display that transforms the phone into something akin to a foldable. Further, LG is seeking to make a stand on pricing by undercutting other flagships by hundreds of dollars. The result? A new phone that clings to old ideas while still moving the bar — even if just a

Of course, the competition has been keeping a keen eye on Xiaomi’s rise and has mounted a strong counteroffensive. Realme

The new coronavirus doesn’t just kill by storming lungs and other organs. It also kills by besieging health care systems.

If left to swirl in a community unchecked for a few weeks, the virus can whip up a tsunami of cases that crash

Apple customers who didn’t pick up devices dropped off for repairs within two days of the company closing all of its retail stores will have to wait to pick them up until the stores reopen, an Apple spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider.

When Apple announced on March 14th that it would be closing all retail stores outside China due to the coronavirus pandemic, the company said customers had a two-day window to retrieve any repairs. Apple tried to contact customers via phone and email to tell them they needed to pick up their devices, but any products that didn’t

In difficult and frightening times, it’s normal for a certain amount of confusion and misinformation to spread. The existence of social media and hyperpartisan “news” outlets undoubtedly exacerbate the problem, but even those are just exaggerated versions of things that have been with us for some time.
