There has never been a better time to grab a top-end flagship smartphone for an affordable price.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 has launched which means the S9 has been demoted to last-year’s-model status.
This is a very good thing for you. It means you can grab a phone with a stunning screen, superb camera and top speeds all for a price that really doesn’t seem like it should be that cheap.
This is largely thanks to a host of new deals, specifically from Tesco Mobile. You can now save a whopping £72 on the Samsung Galaxy S9, the larger Galaxy S9 Plus and the mighty stylus toting Galaxy Note 9.
The deals go on but there is a catch, you need to be fast as this particular one ends on March 31. After that time there’s no guarantee the prices will be as good. So why should you jump on this now?

Lawsuits are coming for sites and apps that don’t follow web standards

Every founder wants an eye-catching website or app, but it’s easy to overlook a basic fact: not all your potential visitors will experience your content with their eyes. If you haven’t considered whether a user with differing visual, motor or hearing abilities can easily navigate your software, it’s time to get serious about digital accessibility.
As tempting as it might be to prioritize a stunning visual and mobile experience over an accessible design, accessibility is a legal requirement—not an option—for many businesses.
Just ask high-profile founder Beyoncé Knowles. In January, Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment was hit with a class-action lawsuit that includes “all legally blind individuals in the United States who have attempted to access Beyonce.com.” The lawsuit claims that the site’s lack of visual alternatives make the site inaccessible to blind users like the plaintiff and therefore illegal.

If you’re looking for more of a get-work-done-now tablet, the Surface Pro 6 is worth a look. It’s one of Microsoft’s premium devices and is basically a big 12-inch tablet that runs a full version of Windows 10, has a really nice adjustable kickstand, and magnetically connects to the best tablet keyboard on the market ($130, sold separately). Sometimes, you’ll wish it was more comfortable to use in your lap, and Windows 10 still isn’t the best for touch, but it’s more powerful than a lot of laptops, and beats any iPad at work tasks. social experiment by Livio Acerbo #greengroundit #wired https://www.wired.com/gallery/the-best-tablets
La segnalazione è partita da un passante. Panico in via Torino, strada chiusa per un’ora all’incrocio con via Santa Maria Valle, a due passi dal Duomo, dove poco prima delle 8.30 di mercoledì è scattato un allarme bomba, che poi si rivelato falso, per degli «oggetti cilindrici» che somigliavano a dei «candelotti di esplosivo» ritrovati in un cestino della spazzatura davanti a un negozio di dolciumi .
«Erano una dozzina», ha raccontato. I carabinieri e il reparto artificieri si sono precipitati sul luogo insieme alla polizia locale che ha provveduto a mettere in sicurezza l’area. Presenti anche i vigili del fuoco e un’ambulanza, ma soltanto per precauzione.
L’intervento degli artificieri è durato diversi minuti, i «candelotti» erano vuoti. La strada è rimasta chiusa per consentire le operazioni e per permettere agli esperti di agire in sicurezza sull’eventuale disinnesco. Bloccato anche il passaggio dei tram lungo la via.
