Verizon's Galaxy S8 offers even more limited functionality when using Bixby

If you’ve been reading our Galaxy S8 review, then you already know that Samsung’s own personal digital assistant, Bixby isn’t yet ready for prime time.

Bixby, Samsung’s new AI assistant, is one of the key features of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The fact that Sammie has decided to add a dedicated physical button for Bixby on each of the new flagships speaks for itself, but many were disappointed to find out that the virtual helper will only speak English and South Korean upon release, and probably won’t come with a full range of functionalities.

There are still a bunch of folks who find it hard to part with the Note 7, and there are even online groups and threads for owners of active Note 7 units, and Samsung apparently will be targeting those in the final acts of the Vikings Note 7 saga.

Spotify and Waze form an unlikely partnership, integrate their respective apps' functionality

There’s nothing quite like a road trip: it gives you the thrill of going on an adventure to lands unknown, and forces you to spend more time with your loved ones (though whether that is a good or bad thing is up for debate). But the best part is always the soundtrack: even when that one person plays the worst, most insufferable noise, the act of travelling together somehow makes it bearable, and even fun.

It appears Waze and Spotify are also aware of the magic of road trips, and have launched an unusual partnership to accommodate for it. A new feature …
