There's a 4.6-inch screen on the outside, but a full 7.3-inch display when it's unfolded into a tablet.jpgInteresting "stuff"    When closed the Galaxy Fold is roughly the size of two Galaxy S10 line phones.jpgInteresting "stuff"

Try again. You can always download the image and then do a Google Images search for a source link or you can right-click it and do the search that way. The first way gives you the original highest-res image.

Re: Interesting "stuff" - Cosmic rays and computer glitches - Bit Flip

Worth listening to the podcast and watching the video:   :Thmbsup:
RadioLab - Bit Flip
(Copied below sans embedded hyperlinks/images.)
May 9, 2019
Back in 2003, Belgium was holding a national election. One of their first where the votes would be cast and counted on computers. Thousands of hours of preparation went into making it unhackable. And when the day of the vote came, everything seemed to have gone well. That was, until a cosmic chain of events caused a single bit to flip and called the outcome into question.

Today on Radiolab, we travel from a voting booth in Brussels to the driver's seat of a runaway car in the Carolinas, exploring the massive effects tiny bits of stardust can have on us unwitting humans.

This episode was reported and produced by Simon Adler and Annie McEwen.
Podcast: Listen at the link above or download MP3 file here.

Video: Quite a well-made video.
(The audio track in the video is all/mostly quite good music and worth downloading in its own right, IMHO.   :Thmbsup:  )

Not a problem for me. I use Microsoft for those emails.

I did check and do see some stuff there, but not all.  I'm not sure what they use to determine, as some Stripe purchases from my local coffee shop are there, but not all Stripe purchases.  It seems that they'd have to get permission for this, but I checked in my privacy settings and didn't see anything that would apply.  And I don't see how this is useful for the consumer, as there's no search for your purchases.

It is similar to the way you can see (past) flights on google calendar, ie sourced from confirmation emails in gmail. A security risk? unlikely. Privacy invasion? yes but when using any service the likelihood is there, it's 2019 we surely know this.
Not sure if Microsoft is less guilty just cause there isn't a visible page listing things separately.
