Samsung says half of recalled Note7 phones in US have been exchanged

As it turns out, people don't want to hang onto exploding phones. Samsung initially started the Note7 Exchange Program earlier this month in the United States, offering owners of affected Note7 devices the choice of a fixed Note7 or a S7/S7 edge. Over a week later, the CPSC officially began working with Samsung to handle the recall.

The program appears to be somewhat of a success, with the company reporting "about half" of the recalled devices have been exchanged. Samsung also revealed that 90% of customers exchanging their Note7 opted to receive a new Note7, instead of another Galaxy device.

Samsung didn't reveal any other details about the program, or exchange numbers in the United Kingdom & Ireland program.

Android apps show up in stable Chrome OS for the first time

Android apps on Chrome OS are not a new thing. In 2014, Google announced that it was working with a few select partners to bring certain apps to Chrome OS. Only a small number became available, and it was never really a consumer-facing project. Earlier this year, Google said that the experiment was scrapped in favor of a different system. Android apps would now run in containers, which would open the whole Play Store to Chrome OS users. This new approach would come to only some Chromebook models which had to be running the dev and beta channel builds.

Now, according to both the Chromium Projects page and the Chrome Releases blog, Android apps are coming to the stable channel for the Asus Chromebook Flip and the Acer Chromebook R11 / C738T.

I reviewed the V-Moda Crossfade wireless headphones last week and found them to be one of the best looking and sounding set of cans I've tested to date. They are built with top-shelf materials that justify their premium price tag of $300.

That's not a trifling amount to spend on a set of headphones, and lucky for you guys, one of you won't have to pay a single cent to get their hands on a pair.
