Re: US Government urges Note 7 users to turn off and stop using the phone

Yeah, that's huge. But I don't see TSA checking all phones to look for the Note 7.

Is the Google Nexus really going to benefit from this?

Was Apple still trying to find another company to manufacture the iPhones? LG or Sony?

I doubt that they would check all but there would probably be an announcement . And If they did Check, they don't let you board the plane. I wouldn't take that risk

If by Nexus you mean pixel then yeah.. I suspect that Google would benefit a little

Foxconn makes Apple iPhones

Re: US Government urges Note 7 users to turn off and stop using the phone

Oh well, doesn't Apple use some Samsung parts?

Samsung makes the battery for the Note 7?

Some parts sure. But Apple specs them out. The phone is assembled by foxconn.

Samsung has two suppliers for this phone. One is a Samsung subsidiary, the other isn't . Phones with both batteries are having problems.

I suspect that the problem might have been partially a manufacturing defect on the battery but there is also something else wrong

Probably the hardest thing would be the pen.
They added the aod additions to my edge this morning. That was fast.

FAA soon to ban flyers from bringing Samsung Washing Machines aboard aircraft as well:

Samsung washing machines recalled because of explosion risk

Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) and federal regulators announced the recall on Friday after reports that the lids of the machines can pop off violently while the laundry is spinning, posing an injury risk. Samsung said it can happen when bedding, water-resistant or bulky items are washed on high speed. The drum can lose its balance, causing excessive vibrations that dislodge the lid.

Samsung was hit with a class action lawsuit over the machines in August. A customer in Texas said her washer "exploded with such ferocity that it penetrated the interior wall of her garage," according to court documents.



Samsung declined further comment about the washing machines.

The company is offering customers free in-home repair, with a one-year warranty extension, or a rebate to buy a new washer, from Samsung or another company, with free installation and removal of the old one. Customers who stick with Samsung get $150 toward their next washer.

Sh1t. I always bring my own washing machine when I travel. Have you seen how much hotels charge for laundry? What to do now?

Re: US Government urges Note 7 users to turn off and stop using the phone

Samsung looks to be disabling charging altogether on the 15th.

In Canada they have disabled cellular, wifi and Bluetooth

Re: US Government urges Note 7 users to turn off and stop using the phone

On a more positive Note (no pun intended...well, ok, a little), it's nice to see the technology being able to disable (most of) the malfunctioning devices.

Re: US Government urges Note 7 users to turn off and stop using the phone

Hoping that the Galaxy Note 8 brings an end to those types of defects. You'd think they would have caught those in testing...but guess not. Cost them a few billion.

If you're read the articles detailing the issue discovered, they note that Samsung has implemented a new 8-point battery check:

It may have caused a delay in the Galaxy S8 release, which is due in April now:
