Samsung currently dominates the foldable smartphone space. But a number of other companies including Motorola, Huawei, and Xiaomi also sell foldables. And Apple? Rumor has it the company is working on foldable iPhones, but it’s unclear if or when they’ll be available for purchase.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. Foldable phones are a trendy, yet another stupid idea. Flex cables are already prone to die after a certain time because of mechanical fatigue, let alone screens. Just a new way to ensure you have to throw away your phone sooner than later and buy another one, generating more e-waste in the process.

    1. Phones brought most of stupid gadget ideas of XXI century, that’s what they are for. Making people show themselves like they are cool while they are not in the process, but brain and market are two powerful foes to fight against. Let’s be pleasant finding it out 🙂
