Samsung Now Has A New RAM Chip That Could Allow Up To 6GB Of Memory In Your Smartphone

Everybody loves more RAM, especially in their Android smartphones and tablets. Because seriously, can we have some more? I'll take whatever you can give me. And today, Samsung is continuing in its grand tradition of responding to that demand with a brand-new DRAM design that squeezes 12Gb (not to be confused with GB) onto each chip, for a maximum of 6GB (again, not to be confused with Gb) of total memory in the package. Samsung claims it can fit that 6GB in the space that is required for 3GB currently, so no extra room is needed.

The new chip is also 30% faster than Samsung's older 20nm-process 8Gb chips, and Samsung claims they'll be able to produce in significantly greater quantities thanks to manufacturing changes.

Blizzard Gives Battle.net Authenticator A Much Needed Visual Revamp In Version 2.0

Two-factor authentication is a good way to protect your Internet accounts from the bad guys. Rather than relying solely on a password, you require an additional code sent to your phone via a text message or app. Google offers this to secure your email account, and Blizzard does the same. And it's smart—you didn't spend all of your teenage and young adult years playing World of Warcraft just to watch someone screw around with your character.

Netflix Will Launch In South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, And Taiwan In Early 2016

After launching in Japan earlier this month, Netflix is set to expand its Asian presence in early 2016 by adding 4 countries to its availability map. If you live in South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, or Taiwan, you'll be happy to know that the video streaming service is coming to your neck of the woods (or rainforest) next year. At least you'll no longer be forced to VPN your way to the US to get Netflix working.

This expansion is part of the company's plan to reach more countries and more potential customers worldwide as quickly as possible. Italy, Portugal, and Spain are getting the service next month, and you can guess that more countries will be joining in later on.

Tumi's Global Locator Uses GPS, GSM, Wi-Fi, And Bluetooth To Track Your Luggage And Bags Everywhere

There are dozens of Bluetooth trackers being released or crowd-sourced by companies every month, but most of them suffer from the same issue. Once you're no longer within Bluetooth range, these trackers are useless. Sure, they can do the job for keeping an eye on belongings that should always stay near you, like wallets and handbags, but when it comes to travel luggage, you're inevitably going to be separated by more than a few hundred feet. You need a more robust location system like GPS to be able to follow your bags across vast airports, and maybe even halfway across the world if they get sent somewhere by mistake.
