Samsung doesn’t make official battery cases for its phones the way that Apple does, so third-party companies are usually swooping in to fill the void. After equipping the spring flagships Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8 with some of the best value-for-money battery cases, ZeroLemon is at it again, this time equipping the high-ender of the Android spring, Samsung’s Galaxy S9+.
It appears that 2017 was a great year for Apple, Google and mobile users alike, at least according to the latest report from research company SensorTower. The report claims mobile users spent no less than $58.6 billion on apps and games last year via in-app purchases, subscriptions, and premium apps on both the App Store and Google Play.

According to today’s Wall Street Journal, Apple has seen the time between announcing a new product and shipping it rise to 23 days during the past six years.

Let’s face it: 2017 was the perfect year to stress eat a Baconator and Frosty. Wendy’s not only helped us feed our feelings, the mastermind behind the Wendy’s Twitter account provided emotional comfort when the fourth Spicy Chicken Sandwich just didn’t cut it.
The fast food chain has shown no mercy when it comes to its competitors. With its witty clapbacks, Wendy’s kept our mouths watering as it continued to serve up beefy burgers with a cold side of shade.
Here are some of Wendy’s most brutal tweets from 2017: Read more…
Just as we thought, anyone who wished to get an iPhone X come next Friday, will be able to do so… depending on the price they are willing to pay. In the few short hours since Apple’s preorders went live, eBay was literally flooded with “any color, any carrier” offers, complete with screenshots of the order confirmation as a proof.
