Anyone want to spend $8,200 on a gaudy, non-existent Game of Thrones-themed Samsung Galaxy Fold?

What do you get when you mix a popular TV show, a coveted smartphone from a popular brand (that isn't Huawei), and a customization company that wants to bank on both? A special Samsung Galaxy Fold, Game of Thrones edition, that you could pre-order now, for the lowly sum of $8,200. There are supposedly only seven of these, so if you absolutely must have one, you better start looking for Benjamin Franklins under the sofa cushions and making sure you have the full price ready for your pre-order.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S4 is down to $498 on Amazon ($152 off)

Most Android tablets on the market are either average at best or overpriced. Although the Galaxy Tab S4 might be one of the top contenders around, its initial MSRP was relatively steep, at $650 for the 64GB variant or $750 for the 128GB version. However, thanks to a deal on Amazon, you can save $152 on both versions, making the tablet a much more interesting bargain. Both storage options are on sale, down to $498 and $598, which is among the lowest prices they've been.

Galaxy S10 5G: Samsung's best phone is one you should not buy

Samsung released three versions of the Galaxy S10 earlier this year, but the "best" model wasn't available until now. The Galaxy S10 5G has officially launched in the US as a (temporary) Verizon exclusive. Samsung pitches the S10 5G as the most desirable member of the S10 family regardless of your access to 5G, but it comes with an inflated price of $1,300. Reinforcing this, Verizon is willing to sell the new S10 variant to anyone, even if you don't live near a 5G market.

I had the chance to test the Galaxy S10 5G in a 5G market. It does offer a ton of features, all GS10 phones do.

Tech destroys the walls between our personal and work lives—I'm fighting to rebuild them

I am weirdly zealous about separating my work life from my personal life. My sanity, such as it is, depends upon not having anxieties about my job bleed into my home life, and keeping the chaos and distractions of my personal, family, and creative life from disrupting my work time. After over a decade of almost exclusively working from home, I’ve put a lot of thought and effort into how I can configure the various components of my Google-powered digital life in a way that is efficient and deliberate rather than stressful and schizophrenic.

But as more aspects of our lives become enveloped by the technological, the easier it is for the demands of our jobs to shove their way into our hours off the clock.
