Girl’s Samsung Galaxy S4 Cell Phone Explodes on Fire Under Pillow

A 13-year-old North Texas girl was awoken in the night by a smoldering cell phone on the other side of her pillow, but the cell phone manufacturer says she did something they warn users about. Ariel Tolfree loves using her Samsung Galaxy S4. “It’s really like, nice and pretty,” said Tolfree. “It’s high tech.” Every chance she gets, she texts her friends and gets on social media apps like Instagram and Twitter.

But during FOX 4’s visit with her, she had to borrow her dad’s S3 phone, because her phone is burned so badly, it’s barely recognizable.

”The whole phone melted,” said her dad, Thomas. “The plastic, the glass. You can’t even really tell that it was a phone.”

Tolfree says her phone slipped under her pillow as she fell asleep, and the smell of something burning woke her up in the night.

“I didn’t think much of it, so I went back to sleep, and then I woke up again and it was more prominent,” said Tolfree.

Her dad suspects the phone overheated, causing the battery to swell and start a fire.

The Tolfree family had seen FOX 4’s recent series of reports on swelling baby monitor batteries, which led to a nationwide recall.

The Tolfrees contacted Samsung, and then FOX 4.

“We have a reasonable expectation that the products we buy are going to be safe,” said Thomas.

A spokesperson for Samsung says their products are safe, and pointed out that the battery inside the phone was a replacement unit and not an original Samsung part.

Nevertheless, the company does agree there is a need for consumer education when it comes to rechargeable batteries. That’s exactly why they post a warning in their user guide, which specifically states covering one of their devices with bedding or other material could restrict airflow and cause a fire.

Tolfree and her dad, though, didn’t read that warning.

“If anything, they should put a big warning on it, like a cigarette label, if that’s the case,” said Thomas.

Tolfree says she doesn’t think people should sleep with their phones and instead, should put them on a nightstand.

The Samsung spokesperson said they take any instance of a battery fire very seriously.

They have requested the burned phone be sent to them so they can fully investigate.

In the meantime, the phone, the bedding, the mattress and pillow will all be replaced by Samsung.

iPhone 6 Rumored to Arrive in September, in Two Sizes

iPhone 6 Rumored to Arrive in September, in Two Sizes

It’s been a little over 10 months since Apple released the iPhone 5s. This means that more than enough time has passed to start demanding: When’s the next one coming out already?!

Well, calm yourself down, eager iShopper. If the latest prominent rumors prove reliable, we could be seeing the iPhone 6 in less than two months.

Mark Gurman of Apple specialty site 9to5Mac reported that Apple is tentatively planning an iPhone 6 unveiling event for the second or third week in September. This isn’t something Apple officially told him, of course; the secretive company would never divulge its future plans. Gurman’s report comes from his anonymous sources.

That might ring a little sketchy to you, but there are plenty of reasons to put faith in the rumor. First: Gurman is generally trustworthy when it comes to Apple rumors. He’s not batting 1.000, but he gets way more right than he gets wrong. He has earned a reputation as one of the most reliable Apple reporters going. On stature alone, you could put stock in the mid-September rumor.

But there is supporting evidence beyond reputation to buttress that rumor, too. As I’ve written many times before, Apple tends to release its iPhone in predictable one-year cycles. The new iPhone comes out one year after the last. A year passes; the next iPhone arrives. For the past three years, the updated iPhone has debuted in the fall. It stands to reason that this one will, too.

And Gurman isn’t singing the September rumor alone: Other reputable sources have pegged it as the month we’ll see the iPhone 6, too. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been impressive with his Apple predictions in the past several years, has written that the “consensus” indicates a September-October release for the next iPhone. The Wall Street Journal also expects a mid-September debut.

Mark it down: We’ll probably see the new iPhone by the end of September.

The other major rumor surrounding the next iPhone concerns its screen size –– or screen sizes. Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal both recently reported that Apple plans to unveil two new iPhones. One of the iPhones will have a 4.6-inch screen, they say; one will have a huge 5.5-inch screen. Both would be substantially larger than the iPhone 5s, which features a 4.0-inch display. The thinking is that a larger iPhone would better appeal to smartphone shoppers in China, who have been more drawn to large-display phones from Samsung and LG than they have been to the relatively svelte iPhone 5s.

For your reference, here’s the iPhone 5s next to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, which boasts a 5.7-inch display. That’s the kind of screen size upgrade we could be looking at should these rumors prove true.

image

This one, however, doesn’t seem quite as concrete. Analysts and reporters disagree on the timing of the two iPhones. Some say they will be released together; others believe the larger will lag behind by a couple of months; a few predict the larger could be delayed until next year. (This talk of delays arises from the apparent difficulty of bulk manufacturing the display for the 5.5-inch iPhone.)

All of this disagreement seems to be a sign that not even Apple knows its plan with 100 percent certainty at this point. Tech companies’ plans can change quickly, especially if there are manufacturing difficulties from suppliers. If you can’t make tens of thousands of new iPhones, and have a good stock ready for a September release date, then you delay the thing until you do.

Longtime Apple watchers might remember a similar situation in 2011. Almost everyone expected Apple to release two iPhones that year, too: The iPhone 4s, which would be the same size as the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 5, which would be larger and thinner. When only the iPhone 4s came out, disappointment followed. Where was the larger iPhone?

2014 could be a repeat, with only one new iPhone arriving on time. Granted, that iPhone could boast a substantially larger screen, from 4.0 to 4.6 inches, so the grousing about “It looks the same!” wouldn’t be as pronounced.

To sum up: The iPhone 6 will likely have a larger screen than the iPhone 5s. Whether it comes with an option for a much bigger screen, we don’t quite know yet.

How to buy cars in Cambodia

Love searching and buying new cars for your life? In Cambodia to buy car it is not difficult to do. In the city of Phnom Penh, we properly can see many car shops around the city both the new and second hand cars.

To buy cars in Cambodia, people have done different ways.

  1. People just spend time to go from car shops to shops to take a look and check up about cars the would like to buy by spending a lot of time to do so. After that they could take all the information they got from different shops to compare each other before reaching the last decision.
  2. People buy cars though cars dealer, a person who is the broker between the seller and buyer. People just asked the dealers to go and find cars as they would like and when he/ she found a cars, he/ she will contact the buyers and they can come to see and check it up. And finally, if the buyers like the car they will buy it. This way, the buyer and seller must pay commission fee to the dealer. This ways, it is sometimes, at risk. The dealers are often hard to trust, they can cheat us and we can get bad cars.
  3. Some people would like to search for buying cars on the Internet. They don’t often go to check up at the shops, but instead they look for on the Internet, when they see the one is their favorite they just go or contact the seller online or phone.

I found a Facebook page of a car company in Phnom Penh that it always updates about the new cars in their shops with price lists. I thinks it can be helpful for you guys if you would like to buy a car for your own to see and check it up.

How is education sector going to be changed in the next 5 years in Cambodia?

If we talk about the education system in Cambodia for the last decade, it has been in very low quality if comparing to other countries in its region and also we can see many complications and crises in the education sector that have been forbidden educational growth.

There are many factors have consisted in the Cambodian education system that leads to low ground quality such as:

  • Low salaries for teachers: Recently this year, teacher’s salaries have been increased that can provide a little bit better for teachers’ livelihood, but it still not plentiful for them to focus on providing quality teaching to students. In the last decade were worse than now.
  • Teachers didn’t fulfill their morality and pedagogy. Because of lacking of their livelihood, teachers started to forget about their morality and pedagogy as teachers and practiced things that teacher should not do. “Teacher” is counted the most worth in Khmer society and good model for all students and they were paid with very high salary in the past before Pol Pot regime, but now are very different.
  • And also corruption has happened in almost areas of educational system such as during exams in semesters and the final exams that happened once a year. This corruption caused education in Cambodia to be so weak. Students who their parents are rich, they do not study hard, just give money to teachers when exams that’s it.

This year, there is another hopes to restore the educational quality in Cambodia. An anti-corruption unit was created in Cambodia in order to fight for corruption in all images and in all institutions. And recently, this unit has been focused on stopping corruption in the education sector of Cambodia, especially, taken measure for the final exams coming very soon.

But, the question that many Cambodian people have been asking, I believe, How good this unit will perform in the longer future and it will be an effective or not?

The Diploma just finished without any attractions amongst the people and what about the grade 12 final exams? Is it going to be serious or not that this unit claimed that will make no corruption anymore during the exams.

My last question and doubt, what is educational quality going to be in next 5 years? And does this unit will perform fairly for its long journey?

A Foreigner’s teaching Khmer!


This is the first time for me to see the foreigner teaches Khmer language. I feel a little bit surprised and would like to admire this guy on how talent is he!

I have met many foreigners that can speak and write Khmer language very well, and they even knew many hard words that we’re Khmer can’t understand its meaning, but not foreigners teach Khmer.

So, when you guys watch this video (I quote from Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDIZKvf_RjM), it can be an encouragement for you during you are studying Khmer, when you feel bored or stress to learn this language, or someone would like to learn it, because there are many foreigners would like to learn Khmer language, but they failed. Trust that you guys can do it, because this guy has done very well.

Nothing that we can do, when we focus on it and try the best for it.

What Happens to Your Online Accounts After You Die?

When you die, should your loved ones have access to your Facebook, Gmail, and other online accounts?

A group of influential lawyers says yes, unless you specify otherwise in a will. The Uniform Law Commission, whose members are appointed by state governments to help standardize state laws, was expected to endorse a plan Wednesday to automatically give loved ones access to — but not control of — all digital accounts unless otherwise specified.

To become law in a state, the legislation would have to be adopted by the state’s legislature. But if it does, designating such access could become an important tool in estate planning, allowing people to decide which accounts should die when they do.

The plan is likely to frustrate some privacy advocates, who say people shouldn’t have to draft a will to keep their mothers from reviewing their online dating profile or their spouses from reading every email they ever wrote.

What Happens to Your Online Accounts After You Die?

“This is something most people don’t think of until they are faced with it. They have no idea what is about to be lost,” said Karen Williams of Beaverton, Oregon, who sued Facebook for access to her 22-year-old son Loren’s account after he died in a 2005 motorcycle accident.

The question of what to do with one’s “digital assets” is as big as America’s electronic footprint. Grieving relatives want access for sentimental reasons, and to settle financial issues. A person’s online musings, photos, and videos — such as a popular cooking blog or a gaming avatar that has acquired a certain status online — also can be worth money. Imagine the trove of digital files amassed by someone of historical value — say former President Bill Clinton or musician Bob Dylan — and what those files might fetch on an auction block.

“Our email accounts are our filing cabinets these days,” said Suzanne Brown Walsh, a Cummings & Lockwood attorney who chaired the drafting committee on the bill. But “if you need access to an email account, in most states you wouldn’t get it.”

Ginger McCall, associate director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington, said a judge’s approval should be needed to protect the privacy of both the owners of accounts and the people who communicate with them.

“The digital world is a different world” than offline, McCall said. “No one would keep 10 years of every communication they ever had with dozens or even hundreds of other people under their bed.”

Most people assume they can decide what happens by sharing certain passwords with a trusted family member, or even making those passwords part of their will. But in addition to potentially exposing passwords when a will becomes public record, anti-hacking laws and most companies’ “terms of service” agreements prohibit anyone from accessing an account that isn’t theirs. That means loved ones technically become criminals if they log on to a dead person’s account.

Several tech providers have come up with their own solutions. Facebook, for example, will “memorialize” accounts by allowing already confirmed friends to continue to view photos and old posts. Google, which runs Gmail, YouTube, and Picasa Web Albums, offers its own version: If a person doesn’t log on after a while, her accounts can be deleted or shared with a designated person. Yahoo users agree when signing up that their account expires when they do.

But the courts aren’t convinced that a company supplying the technology should get to decide what happens to a person’s digital assets. In 2005, a Michigan probate judge ordered Yahoo to hand over the emails of a Marine killed in Iraq after his parents argued that their son would have wanted to share them. Likewise, a court eventually granted Williams access to her son’s Facebook account, although she says the communications appeared to be redacted.

Enter the Uniform Law Commission. According to a draft of the proposal, the personal representative of the deceased, such as the executor of a will, would get access to — but not control of — a person’s digital files so long as the deceased doesn’t prohibit it in the will. The law would trump access rules outlined by a company’s terms of service agreement, although the representative would still have to abide by other rules including copyright laws.

That means, for example, that a widow can read her deceased husband’s emails but can’t send emails from that account. And a person can access music or video downloads, but not copy the files if doing so violates licensing agreements.

Williams said she supports letting people decide in their wills whether accounts should be kept from family members.

“I could understand where some people don’t want to share everything,” she said in a phone interview this week. “But to us, losing (our son) unexpectedly, anything he touched became so valuable to us.” And “if we were still in the era of keeping a shoe box full of letters, that would have been part of the estate, and we wouldn’t have thought anything of it.”

Facebook Now Lets You Save Links, Places, Music, and More for Later

Keeping up with Facebook’s News Feed can often feel like a losing battle, especially when you’ve got friends who bombard the stream with links several times a day. No one has time to read all that on the spot, and thankfully Facebook is completely aware of those time constraints. Since most people can’t spend the entire day on Facebook, today the company is introducing a new Save feature that makes getting back to links and other shared content much easier. It’s rolling out to all users on iOS, Android, and the Web over the next few days.

Aside from links, you’ll also be able to save places, music, movies, and TV shows that your friends are posting about. Facebook will compile all of these saved items together in a new section that’s being added to the More tab on mobile. And revisiting that stuff from a desktop browser should also be easy thanks to a link that’ll soon appear in the Facebook sidebar. From here you can share those items with friends or archive links once you’ve finally found free time to read them.

Facebook Now Lets You Save Links, Places, Music, and More for Later

There’s no offline access to content, so Facebook Save isn’t going to replace Pocket or Instapaper anytime soon. Nor does it offer the organization that Pinterest users are accustomed to. You can’t make your own lists of saved items since Facebook automatically puts everything into buckets for links, places, music, and so on. It’s super basic by design.

It’s hard to see a practical reason for saving Facebook pages belonging to bands or TV shows; links and places are clearly where the new feature makes the most sense. But Facebook, always eager to experiment with new features, also runs the risk of people missing this latest one entirely or quickly forgetting about it. To help prevent that, the company says you’ll sometimes see reminders for saved content pop up in the News Feed.

5 things you must be aware of when coming to Cambodia

1-    Mosquitoes bite: Mosquito bite in Cambodia can cause two kinds of diseases: Dingus Fever and Malaria, It is very dangerous for foreigners when getting this both diseases, but the Dingus Fever is more dangerous for you. Mostly the foreigners who got Dingus Fever, it is hard to cure in Cambodia; mostly they are brought to Thailand for a better treatment.  So if you guys come, you must protect yourself from mosquitoes bite. If you stay in cities sometimes, it is not so challenged with Dangus or Malaria, because you stay in the hotel, but you can face mosquitoes bite when you get out where mosquitoes access. So what can you do to protect yourself from mosquitoes bite? If you stay where the mosquitoes confrontation you must sleep under dipped mosquitoes net. You can find mosquito net everywhere at the chemists’ store in Cambodia. So just get one with you. And if you go out day time or night time, you should use mosquito ripeilion over your skin to protect you from mosquitos bite. Imagine if you get one of these diseases while you are in holiday, it will not be happy for you ha!

2-    Travel and Traffic: Traffic in Cambodia is a little bit crazy especially in the towns. There are many motorcycles and vehicles on the roads or street and there is no any lane set up for motorbike or car, they just go together messily. So it is so easy to cause road accident. And in countryside or provinces roads are not wide so it is also easy to cause road accident. Road accidents rate in Cambodia are higher than other countries in ASEAN. So, if you guys travel around during your days in Cambodia, you should be aware of this. If you travel on motorbike or with motor taxis, you must wear helmet properly on. I encourage you to get tuk tuk (a kind of taxi transportation) are safer than motor taxi or get taxi meters when you go around (only in Phnom Penh).

3-    Street foods: Street foods are considered to be the cheapest everywhere in Cambodia. Some tourists, they would like to try street foods that can make them more fun and experienced for their traveling and you can do the same, but it can be harmful for your health. I won’t encourage you to try them, but if you have experiences doing it before in another countries and it didn’t harm you, so you do it.

4-    Bargain before buying or doing things: You can be a target of ripping off, because you are tourists and many people think you are rich. So, you must bargain (This not mean for everything, just something with a bigger amount of money). You buy clothes in the market and if the price 10 dollars US, you can give 5 dollars and the seller with put the price down automatically. And if get taxi, you must know the price before getting in if not you can be cheated or ripped off. I used to be ripped off when travelling in Bang Kok by a Thai taxi meters. So, that’s ok to bargain and talk about the price before buying and doing something in Cambodia. It can happen everywhere.

5-    Give money to street kids: I won’t stop you from doing generosity. You properly feel bad when street kids come and plead you for money with a pity gesture and you can throw off 1 or 2 dollars for them. But be careful, sometimes, it is not only one, but it can be a group. When one got money from you, he/she just run away and a few second latter, another one will come to you again and you will be bothered by them and you will not feel good anymore.

5 Tips Every Samsung Galaxy Phone Owner Should Know

Using a Samsung Galaxy phone can make me feel like I’m on a treasure hunt. There are so many hidden features that it can be somewhat overwhelming to find the ones that will truly enrich your experience, versus the ones you should leave in the sand. Consider this guide your treasure map. Most important, I’ll show you how to use the features that will save you time and help you get the most out of your device, whether you own a Galaxy S4 or S5, a Galaxy Mega or mini, or a Note 3.

From customizing those Quick Settings and using your phone as a TV remote to making certain pictures private, these are the tips every Samsung phone owner should know.

1. Speed up your phone
Not a fan of waiting? Disabling the home button shortcut for Samsung’s voice assistant, S Voice, will speed things up. You’ll notice much less of a delay when exiting apps. That’s because your Galaxy Phone is waiting for you to tap the home button twice to turn the feature on — every single time you press it.

5 Tips Every Samsung Galaxy Phone Owner Should Know

To add more time back to your life, double-tap the home button to activate S Voice, and then touch the three dots in the upper-right corner and tap Settings. After that, all you need to do is uncheck the box that says Open via the home key.

2. Run two apps on the screen at once
Samsung has been guilty of throwing lots of gimmicky stuff at the wall (see Smart Scroll and Smart Pause), but Multi Window is an underrated and underappreciated feature. With this function turned on, you can run two apps on the screen simultaneously, giving you serious multitasking power. Plus, you can move content from one window into another.

image

To get started, make sure Multi Window is turned on in the Quick Settings Menu. Then swipe the tab on the left edge of your screen to the right. Now drag app icons from the tray that appears in the top and bottom windows. Now you can attach a photo to an outgoing email just by dragging and dropping it, or browse the Web while you check your texts.

3. Customize the Quick Settings menu
The whole point of Samsung’s Quick Settings menu is to save you time, so it’s in your best interest to take a little bit of time to customize it to your liking. Travel a lot? Then you’ll want the Airplane mode button front and center. Want to save every last bit of juice? Then you’ll want to prioritize Power saving mode or (if you own a Galaxy S5 or newer phone) Ultra power saving mode. I personally prefer S Finder, which helps you find apps, file email, and perform other things on your device.

To make the S5 more your own, swipe down from the top of the screen, and then tap the grid button in the top-right corner. Next, you’ll tap the pencil button (Edit). From there, you’ll be able to drag and drop shortcut buttons to whichever position you like.

4. Keep those backlit keys always on
Maybe you’re a new Galaxy phone user trying to remember what button does what. Or you just hate peek-a-boo. Whatever the reason, there are a lot of people who don’t like that the keys beneath Samsung’s display automatically turn off after a few seconds. If you’d prefer that these keys always be backlit when the screen is on, it’s easy to do something about it.

image

Start by going to Settings and selecting Display. Scroll down and tapTouch key light duration. Now select Always on.

5. Voice control to take photos
Whether you want to take more selfies (I won’t judge) or you just want to eliminate camera shake when you snap that important group photo, your Samsung phone can help. With a simple voice command you can activate the shutter. Choose from “Smile,” “Cheese,” “Capture,” or “Shoot” for taking pictures or just say, “Record video” for capturing footage. These commands work whether you’re using the back or front camera.

image

To activate voice control for the camera, open the camera app and tap Settings. Then scroll until you see the Voice control option, and select it to turn it on. When taking photos, your Samsung phone will tell you to keep the phone steady as it processes your command, which happens fairly quickly.

I found this it can be helpful for all the Samsung Galaxy phones users:
