Read and listen, listen and read through Legimi and Samsung galaxy S7

Samsung to the company with Legimi has prepared a sensational offer that simply can not be missed. In my case, I found time to read again - because it was never so comfortable before.

Take some time with Facebook, exchange a few messages with your friends, launch your favorite game, and then possibly a news app - this is a stereotype daily usage pattern for your smartphone. According to research conducted by the O2 network operator, making calls a few years ago has come to a much deeper plan. Why? The answer here is an analysis of Pew Research Center - so we use more and more phones, but the main goal is not for us to communicate with people, but ... avoid boredom. Small computers resting in our pockets are to be portable entertainment centers, which will make even a morning train trip to work will not be a katorga.

I admit - I got into this trap myself, and until recently I spent most of my time on social media and information applications. Truth, from time to time I was tempted to see the use of these tens of minutes a day for a bit more readable, but eventually the intentions were fulfilled by nothing. The books did not fit into the bag, the electronic prices were so high that buying them specifically for the smartphone just frightened, and the e-book reader did not have.

My inner funnel was very happy with it - occasionally only my conscience was troubled, because after all, I complained that I do not have a moment to read the new King, but all the gossip from the news section of the life of the stars "I already knew because I had nothing to do." Well, I've been fighting with each other for the last year. Recently, however, there was a spark of hope - I gave the opportunity to service Legimi and suddenly I found that on the phone you can conveniently and cheaply read books, listen to them, and even collect a large library of both bestseller and niche beads.

Thousands of books at your fingertips

Why did I decide to give it a try? Well, Samsung has entered into a partnership with Legimi, so all Samsung mobile owners receive up to half a year free Legimi unlimited subscription. So it happened that I'm one of those lucky people. Let's return to the merits - if you do not know it, Legimi is a service similar to the recently triumphant platform of streaming music. Instead of works, however, it offers books - tens of thousands of items available for rent "for a fraction of the traditional price.

I have to admit I'm delighted. Even before installing the application I was impressed that this platform was created by Poles - it …

LG G6 LG recalls how to make decent flagship

At a press conference in Barcelona LG has shown the world its latest flagship smartphone - the LG G6. Model very important for LG, because to show that coolly received by LG G5 customers was just a work accident that will not happen again.

The LG G6 will not find either a module, a rechargeable battery, or many other solutions that would have been G5 strengths, but ultimately contributed to the failure of this little experimental smartphone. Instead, they have put on more proven solutions and functions that people actually want and need. This does not mean, however, that the G6 is a boring and reproductive phone, because LG designers would not be themselves if they did not allow themselves a bit of madness.

Let's move on to details. The first thing that comes to mind with the new LG news is its 5.7-inch screen with very unusual 18: 9 aspect ratios and an unmatched 2880 x 1440 resolution. This display is therefore narrower and longer than other 5.7-inch displays. For what? With this impressive and narrow frame, the phone is less than 72 mm wide, just like typical smartphones with a 5.2-inch screen. In other words, for a device with such a long diagonal display it is surprisingly handy. Such proportions also make the bar with the on-screen buttons bother less than usual because apps, games, and movies can easily display in their typical 16: 9 aspect ratio, and the navigation bar does not take away valuable space. And the screen of such proportions can be divided into two perfectly square parts, which will appeal to those who like to display two application windows side by side.

Significantly improved with regard to G5 has been the quality of workmanship and appearance. The LG G6 looks much nicer, more elegant, with no bizarre camera lenses, and is made from better quality materials. The side frame and buttons are metal and the back is covered with glass. The LG G6 is also the first waterproof flagship of this brand, so it's a daunting moment in the lake. Unfortunately, the waterproof and improved quality of performance was at price - unlike the last few flags of this brand, LG G6 battery can not be replaced "on the fly." The LG G6 is therefore the epitome of the end of an era, as no bigger smartphone maker is producing flag-carriers with easily replaceable batteries.

Actually, the only G6-like G5 is the dual rear camera. Just like last year's model, the new LG has one 13 MP normal camera and one ultra wide angle lens that sees a lot more and gets very interesting fisheye effect, but at the expense of image quality.

A few moments spent with us with the LG G6 is optimistic. It seems that the LG engineers have …

Vladimir Putin closes Roscosmos

The Russian Federal Space Agency Roscosmos has ceased to exist. It was solved by the very president of this country Vladimir Putin. Of course, this does not mean that Russia is abandoning the dream of conquering outer space. The president's decision is related to transforming the agency and gaining more control at the government level.

Russian Roscosmos, the federal space agency, has just ceased to exist, dissolved by Vladimir Putin. But one who would think that Russia would no longer send people into space would be mistaken. The president's decision is the end of annual activities aimed at organizational changes, which are to significantly improve its operation.

Roscosmos was often criticized for the erroneous decisions of the agency's management so far. They have led to the loss of several spacecraft, as well as misuse of up to 92 billion rubles (about $ 1.8 billion) in air, mostly due to ubiquitous corruption.

The agency will be redeployed on January 1 next year and this time it will be managed at the government level to better utilize the available budget and will complete the construction of a new spaceport near the China border.
