The idea is to make the presentation of images a little bit richer and have a little more context than the simple sharing available through most methods and platforms.

Developer Storehouse Media changed that this week with the release of the Android version of the Storehouse app. Read more

Samsung has released a new video showing some of the manufacturing steps used to produce the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Samsung notes that production of the device required some engineering firsts, like adding the curve to the Gorilla Glass. Samsung notes that the industry’s hardest glass had to be heated up to 800 degrees Celsius in order to be curved for use on the device. Meanwhile, the “aerospace-grade” aluminum is carved with diamond encrusted tools and the texture of the device is applied using microscopic ceramic grains. Samsung also notes the colors used on the Galaxy S6 edge each have their own custom reflection pattern.
