Samsung's new parental control app Marshmallow has nothing to do with Android Marshmallow

Samsung just launched an app late last night for parents to keep track of their children's smartphone usage, but this one has an interesting twist. Instead of just being forced to follow whatever guidelines are set by the parent, this app relies on positive reinforcement via your offspring's initiative. They set their own limits, and the app rewards their self-control and independence. That's actually pretty awesome.

An unlocked Galaxy S8 Plus with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is headed to Hong Kong

Samsung graciously upped the Galaxy S8's base storage to 64GB this year, but it's sticking with 4GB of RAM. You want more?

It looks like the fix for the S8 and S8+'s red-tint woes may soon be upon us. An update has started rolling out back in Samsung's home market.

[Deal Alert] Get a Verizon/unlocked Galaxy S8 with warranty for just $699.99 ($56 off) from a reputable eBay seller

The still-new Galaxy S8 is arguably the best phone on the market right now. The gorgeous Infinity Display and Snapdragon 835 are features that competitors just can't match. That being said, at $756 + tax for the Verizon model, it's on the higher end of the market. Even though it's been less than a week since pre-orders have been arriving on tech enthusiasts' doorsteps, you can save a pretty significant chunk of change by purchasing one from a Top Rated Plus seller on eBay.
