Samsung glamor days over as it fights to save mobile market share

People pose with mobile devices in front of projection of Samsung logo in this picture illustration taken in ZenicaBy Se Young Lee SEOUL (Reuters) - For four years Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has basked in the success of its Galaxy smartphones, making billions of dollars competing with Apple Inc in the premium mobile market. The coming years are set to be more somber for the South Korean tech giant, as it is forced to slash prices and accept lower margins at its mobile division in order to see off competition from rivals including China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and Xiaomi Inc in the mid-to-low end of the market. Behind Samsung's reality-check is the fact it is stuck with the same Android operating system used by its low-cost competitors, who are producing increasingly-capable phones of their own.

Here’s What Google’s Secret Car Company Is Called
It registered a subsidiary in 2011

The media has written countless words about Google’s self-driving car project for years, and the company even publicly presented a prototype last year. But few knew until Monday that Google created a limited liability company to legally operate the project.

The company registered Google Auto LLC, in 2011 when it switched from using Toyota Prius cars to Lexus SUVs, according to documents obtained by The Guardian. The LLC is listed as the manufacturer of all 23 of Google’s self-driving Lexus cars, and was used to apply for each car’s vehicle identification number (VIN).

Presumably, Google decided to register a subsidiary to protect itself — and its financial assets — in the case of trouble. The company’s Lexus cars were recently involved in crashes.

While Google Auto is registered as a passenger vehicle manufacturer in the U.S. and abroad — and was even licensed last year an automaker in California — Google said in January that it will be looking for established automakers as manufacturing partners. Google hasn’t named any such partners yet, however.

Periscope’s new Couch Mode lets you watch an endless stream of live video
Screen Shot 2015-08-03 at 4.00.25 PM
Periscope is introducing a new way to consume video. With “Couchmode”, you can quickly flip through videos on Periscope just like you would while sitting on your couch when watching TV. Get it? It’s punny. Good job, Periscope. If you want to give it a go, head over to periscope.tv/couchmode. Currently available for the desktop, Couchmode still displays videos in portrait mode, but adds a small arrow in the top right to forward you along to a new video. It’s all very random, too; you don’t get to choose where your next video comes from. LIVE on #Periscope: From @periscopeco…
