  1. Samsung Galaxy Fold: Broken screens delay launch Samsung has postponed the release of its folding smartphone, days after several early reviewers said the screens on their devices had broken. The company said it had delayed the launch of the Galaxy Fold to "fully evaluate the feedback and run further internal tests". In April, several early reviewers found the display on the Galaxy Fold broke after just a few days. Samsung has not said when the £1,800 ($1,980) device will go on sale. A new launch date will be announced in the "coming weeks". In a statement, Samsung said it suspected the damage experienced by some of the reviewers was caused by "impact on the top and bottom exposed areas of the hinge". It also said it found "substances" inside one of the review devices that may have affected its performance. Launch events due to take place in Hong Kong and Shanghai this week have also been postponed. The Galaxy Fold was due to be released in the United States on 26 April, and in the UK on 3 May. The South Korean tech giant has said it is investigating what went wrong with the broken review units. In some cases, reviewers had peeled off a layer of the screen's coating, mistaking it for a disposable screen protector. "We will also enhance the guidance on care and use of the display including the protective layer," Samsung said in a statement. The South Korean company has worked hard for the past two and a half years to win back consumer trust following its Galaxy Note 7 debacle. Millions of those devices had to be recalled due to reports of exploding batteries. Samsung previously said the Galaxy Fold had sold out on its website, but it declined to say how many phones had actually been sold. Chinese rivals Huawei and Xiaomi are also developing foldable smartphones, but neither company has announced a release date yet.
  2. Gorillas Perfect Their Selfie Style Two gorillas have been snapped apparently mimicking human behaviour, in a remarkable selfie with a park ranger who helped rescue them as babies. The photo, taken by a worker at Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo, swiftly went viral after being shared on Facebook. "Another day at the office..." Mathieu Shamavu wrote alongside the image, which has been shared more than 20,000 times. Female gorillas Ndakazi and Ndeze appear to be naturals in front of the camera; one stands proudly in a power pose with her feet wide apart, while the other leans forward to make it into the shot. "Those gorilla gals are always acting cheeky so this was the perfect shot of their true personalities," Virunga National Park wrote on Instagram. "Also, it's no surprise to see these girls on their two feet either -- most primates are comfortable walking upright (bipedalism) for short bursts of time," it added. The park, which stretches along the northeast region of the country, is home to 22 primate species, including three great apes. It's estimated that 1,000 mountain gorillas inhabit the site. More than 600 rangers work to safeguard wildlife at the park, a 3,000-square-mile site that has frequently seen violence and outbreaks of conflict. Several rangers have been killed there, and two Britons were kidnapped on the site last year.

    How Dogs Are Like Men

    How Dogs Are Like Men Both take up too much space on the bed. Both have irrational fears about vacuum cleaning. Both mark their territory. Neither tells you what’s bothering them. The smaller ones tend to be more nervous. Both have an inordinate fascination with women’s crotches. Neither does the dishes. Both farts shamelessly. Neither of them notices when you get your hair cut. Both like dominance games. Both are suspicious of the postman. Neither understands what you see in cats.
  4. A Sad Obituary in Scotland A very popular man dies in Aberdeen and his old widow wishes to tell all his friends at once, so she goes to the Aberdeen Evening Gazette and says, 'I'd like tae place an obituary fur ma late husband ...' The man at the desk says, 'OK, how much money dae ye have?' The old woman replies, '£5' to which the man says, 'Ye won't get many words for that Mrs, but write something and we'll see if it's ok.' So, the old woman writes something and hands it over the counter. The man reads 'Peter Reid, fae Peterheid is deid.' He feels sad at the abruptness of the statement and encourages the old woman to write a few more things, saying, 'I think we cud allow 3 or 4 more words fer yer money.' The old woman ponders and then adds a few more words and hands the paper over the counter again. The man then reads - 'Peter Reid, fae Peterheid is deid. Ford Escort for sale.'
  5. Divorced Barbie Doll One day a father gets out of work and on his way home he suddenly remembers that it's his daughter's birthday. He pulls over to a Toy Shop and asks the sales person, 'How much for one of those Barbie's in the display window?' The salesperson answers, 'Which one do you mean, sir?’ ‘We have - Work Out Barbie, Shopping Barbie, Beach Barbie, Disco Barbie, Ballerina Barbie, Astronaut Barbie and Skater Barbie, all of which cost $19.95 each and we also have Divorced Barbie, for $265.95’ The amazed father asks: ‘It's what?! Why is the Divorced Barbie $265.95 and the others only $19.95?' The annoyed salesperson rolls her eyes, sighs and answers: 'Sir...Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken's Car, Ken's House, Ken's Boat, Ken's Furniture, Ken's Computer, one of Ken's Friends.'
