Samsung Flow is not a new app, but the basic gist is that you can use your Galaxy phone's fingerprint scanner to unlock your Tab Pro S Windows 10 device. It also allows you to do other things like see and interact with your phone's notifications on the desktop and transfer content and activity between the two (where supported). Thus far, this has been limited to a single tablet, but Samsung is apparently planning to expand this to all Windows 10 devices soon. Read More Samsung Flow will soon allow you to unlock any Windows 10 device with your Galaxy's fingerprint scanner was written by the awesome team at Android Police .

It goes without saying that the interior design of cars that look they way they do on the outside should be equally radical, and the SM does not disappoint once you open the door. The inside features a single spoke steering wheel, scorpion-like ribbed leather seats, and a brushed metal surface atop the center console that provides the backdrop for that too-cool shifter; I had a hard time watching the road instead of that complex chrome cylinder during every gear change. So the next time someone tells you that France is only good at hoisting white flags, tell them to read a history book, and preferably one with some Citroens. They certainly deserve a place in it.

U.S. President Donald Trump visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington on Tuesday, calling it “a beautiful tribute to so many American heroes.” The new president read the names of several prominent black figures from American history, saying, “I'm deeply proud that we now have a museum that honors the millions of African American men and women who built our national heritage, especially when it comes to faith, culture and the unbreakable American spirit." He pledged “to do everything I can to continue that promise of freedom for African Americans and for every American. So important, nothing more important.” His visit came as the U.S. celebrates its annual Black History Month during February. Trump said the fight for racial equality in the United States depicted at the museum “is a meaningful reminder of why we have to fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its very ugly forms.

Full Metal Furies immediately puts me in the mind of those old coin-op arcade games based on franchises like X-Men and The Simpsons . Or even more recent examples, like The Behemoth's wonderful brawler, Castle Crashers . Well. This one comes from Cellar Door Games, the talented indie team behind Rogue Legacy . The earlier game twisted the "roguelike" genre with its unusual (and completely engaging) approach to long-term play: each "life" was the next generation in a family line, with different genetic traits tweaking how subsequent generations played. Full Metal Furies ' trailer describes the game as "not your typical brawler." The trailer is mostly focused on looking cool, but check out Cellar Door's website if you're curious to know more about how this game stands apart. Read more...

Why would Trump select someone who clearly has ties to the elite, hedge funds, and Goldman Sachs, all of which he claims to oppose? Why Steven Mnuchin Is a Strange Choice for Trump After graduating from Yale University, Steven Mnuchin began his business career at Salomon Brothers in the early 1980s and then started working for Goldman Sachs in 1985. Prior to the election, Trump had criticized his Republican competitor Ted Cruz for his connections to Wall Street and because his wife had worked for Goldman Sachs. Trump went so far as to call out both Cruz and Hillary Clinton for their connections to Wall Street in one debate, stating that the guys at Goldman Sachs have “total control” over them. And he wasnt lying; Hillary was scrutinized for her paid speeches to Goldman Sachs, which you can read about here . Interestingly enough, Hillary considered a high-ranking Goldman Sachs banker, Gary Gensler, for the position of Treasury Secretary, the same position Trump selected Mnuchin for.
