Samsung - staying true to form - went on a trademark-filing rampage recently, snatching up trademarks for six new devices, described in the documents only as "Mobile telephones; Smartphones."

The newly-trademarked device names include Lunge (SN 85621870), Galaxy Forge (SN 8561866), Galaxy Wield (SN 85621864), Galaxy Mission (SN 85621859), Galaxy Rivet (SN 85621854), and the Galaxy Victory (SN 85621853).

Considering these are just trademark filings, there's no way of knowing when (if ever) we may see smartphones with these names, or what the devices will be like.

April 15th is right around the corner. If you're not one of the early birds that files your before Spring, your procrastination is about to pay off. H&R block has introduced a new app for Android phones that allows you to enter W2 information into your tax return by taking a photo of the document. Taxes just got fun! Or, at least, a little less tedious.

Truth be told, it almost seems inevitable that filing taxes would become largely automated.

We don't tend to associate words like "scanning," "PDFs" and "documents" with fun. After playing with Handy Scanner, though... well, we still don't. Sorry. That headline was a lie. Scanning documents is, however, a breeze with this freemium app. Breezy enough that you won't want to go Office Space on your scanner, and that's fun.

Handy Scanner is very straightforward. Take a picture of a document that you want scanned.
