Samsung To Put Fingerprint Reader in Screen on Note 9

It's been rumored for the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, but the rumor has once again surfaced that the fingerprint reader will be put behind the front glass on your next Galaxy Note product. There are some issues to this of course, but the current design trend from Samsung is to remove the bezel with their "infinity" display and it looks really nice. The downside is that there is no place for a home button, fingerprint reader or other "old school" ideas - unless you move it to the back or put it behind the screen. I don't have a problem with the fingerprint reader on the S8, but I do see where they are going and why.

9to5Google writes that KGI released a new report that claims that Samsung is going to keep the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone, at least for now. Samsung is apparently ready to keep the scanner on the back of the phone through the Galaxy S9 when it’s released next year, and is aiming to introduce the under-display feature in the eventual Galaxy Note 9.

Amazon vs. Ticketmaster?

Looks like Amazon might be branching out once again as the rumors have it that they are looking to start doing event-ticketing, a market that is dominated by Ticketmaster. I'm sure a little competition would probably be good for the market as Ticketmaster is far and away the biggest and it's hard to feel too sorry for them when you go to buy a $15 ticket and then get smacked with $12 of service fees. The Consumerist breaks down the rumors.

Though many have tried, no online ticket sellers have even come close to touching Ticketmaster. It doesn’t hurt that its parent company is Live Nation, which owns or operates many of the biggest concert venues and promotes the biggest touring acts. Is Amazon one of the few companies with enough size and reach to actually take on Ticketmaster? We might soon find out.

Reuters, citing sources familiar with the matter, reports that Amazon is looking to partner with venue owners to sell tickets to sporting games, concerts, and other events.

Lian Li @ CES 2013

Lian Li was at CES once again this year and they brought a few interesting chassis to the show.  By interesting, I mean a beast, a thermal guru and a train.  Let's start with the beast.  The PC-D8000.  This case supposts the largest motherboards possible and complies to the HPTX standard.  Even with a motherboard as large as 15" x 13.6", you still will have room for 20 (that's right, twenty) 3.5" HDDs.  In addition to that, it has four USB 3.0 ports on the front and all of the other awesome features we've come to expect from the all-aluminum case manufacturer, Lian Li.

PC-D8000 Big Front

 

The PC-V850 is a case that is coming in the near future (hopefully) and it offers the standard Lian Li quality with a bit of a different way to manage thermal issues.  Once the side panel is on, the air intake comes from the rear and the deflector ensures that you are not sucking in hot air from the rear exhaust.  The chassis is sectioned off into several areas that are compartmentalized so that different components don't heat up each other.

 

The last and oddest thing that we've seen from Lian Li is the train PC case.  We've seen some pretty odd cases, that included sea shells, horses and a yeti, but we've never seen a moving train PC.  There is not much else to be said about this.
