Samsung's newest handset, the Galaxy Note 7, was released to stellar reviews followed by its very sudden downfall. While many claim the phone was Samsung's best yet, reports of the device catching fire tainted the company's image. Then, a recall was hampered by the "fixed" phones also catching on fire. Samsung may have to wait until the 2017 release of their Galaxy S8 before it can salvage from the flames whatever is left of the brand. But in the meantime, POTUS will have something to say about the South Korean company.

If you have an iPhone, stop what you're doing and update it to the latest operating system, iOS 9.3.5 (to do this, go to your Settings app, tap "General," and then "Software Update." Then tap "Download and Install"). Why? As Motherboard reports today, security researchers have found a new malicious program that can secretly bypass the security on your iPhone and capture almost all of your data, including all your texts, phone calls, emails, even burrowing into your Facebook and Gmail apps.

Apple is no stranger to the billion-with-a-B milestone. The computer company counts its profits in billions, its app download figures in billions and the amount of shade CEO Tim Cook throws at FBI director James Comey in billions as well.
