Apple vs. Samsung: Who makes the better phone?

  Apple vs. Samsung: Who makes the better phone? It's clear who's selling the most phones, but who's making the best phones? From performance and design to ecosystem and security, we dare to compare the two companies and their products. The numbers don't lie.Gartner's recently published report revealed that Apple is now the worldwide leader in smartphone shipments, passing Samsung for the first time in five years.

If you're wondering when Apple will hold its next event, Siri may have the answer. Ask the digital helper: "When is the next Apple event?" and it will respond with "the special event is on Tuesday, April 20, at Apple Park in Cupertino, CA. You can get all the details on Apple.com." MacRumors, which spotted the reply, says the virtual assistant is providing it in certain instances on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and HomePod.

While it's an open secret that Apple is planning an event for later this month where it's expected to debut a new iPad Pro, Siri has seemingly leaked the date ahead of confirmation. We won't have to wait long to find out if the info is correct, though. Apple normally sends out invites to the press a week ahead of the proceedings, so it should make it official later today.

James Van Der Beek's Family Feels 'Blessed' After Adopting Dog

  James Van Der Beek's Family Feels 'Blessed' After Adopting Dog New kid on the block! James Van Der Beek‘s family welcomed an adorable new addition to their family, and they are so excited. Kimberly Van Der Beek revealed via Instagram on Thursday, March 4, that she, the Dawson’s Creek alum, 43, and their kids Olivia, 10, Joshua, 8, Annabel, 7, Emilia, 4, and Gwendolyn, 2, adopted a dog. “We have been incredibly blessed to welcome Theo into our home. His foster parents @haileysani and @tabv saved his life and gave him so much love and we are so very grateful!” she captioned a series of photos and videos of the actor spending time with the new family pet. “And now having @thezendogla here to help us ease into this new union makes it all feel blessed and real.” She continued: “It’s a process that involves patience and love, and we’re here for it! To all the dog lovers out there please watch Dog: Impossible on Disney Jr. Its a game changer and @thezendogla helps you meet your dog where they’re at so that you can learn and grow together.” Kimberly, 38, shared a photo of the Connecticut native sitting on the floor with their new pooch. She also posted several clips of him walking Theo on the leash and one of him and the dog cuddling on a set of stairs. The addition of a new family member brought some much-needed joy to James and Kimberly, whose 4-year-old daughter, Emilia, was rushed to the emergency room following a fall.

The event itself is expected to be a virtual affair starring the iPad Pro (in two sizes) and possibly featuring the AirTags Bluetooth tracker. Apple's next premium slate reportedly features a Mini LED display on the flagship 12.9-inch model, but supply chain issues could see it ship later than planned and in limited quantities. Reports suggesting Apple was interested in the display tech for its productivity-oriented iPad Pro and MacBook Pro (also rumored for an upgrade later this year) first emerged in 2019.

Thank you for the memories, Siri Remote .
Few Apple products have engendered as much rage as this very good remoteTechnically called the Siri Remote, the super-slim minimalist remote launched in 2015 alongside the fourth-gen Apple TV (now known as the Apple TV HD). It was the third remote designed by Apple to control your TV and the first one to include a touchpad or microphones. The Siri Remote was named for the big Siri button below the touchpad and was meant to make the digital assistant a more natural part of the way you interacted with your television. It didn’t do that for me, personally, but I may be an outlier on all things Apple remote. I just used it as a remote to control my TV.
