Forgive me for passing up the chance to beat the exploding battery joke into the ground. Let's get straight to the point: Samsung's once dominant flagship phablet is back after a two year hiatus. Sporting a stunning extra-widescreen 18.5:9 display, the new Galaxy Note8 is bigger and more engaging than ever before, and it packs a larger power pack than any Note besides the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 too. But a lot has changed since 2015 -- especially when you consider that starting at $1499, the new Note8 is now more expensive than ever.

That means there are two questions it needs to answer: Does the Galaxy Note8 still make sense in 2017, and can it possibly be worth $1499?

It seems like Apple and Samsung are constantly parrying each other. Samsung launches the Galaxy S III; Apple launches the iPhone 5 a few months later. Apple launches a new iPad; Samsung launches one of its new Galaxy Tabs a few months later. Now we have Samsung's answer to Apple's iPad Mini: the Galaxy Note 8.0, but is it worth buying?

What you need to remember about batteries is that inside of them is a volatile mix of chemicals, carefully harnessed to keep your gadgets alive. You'd be forgiven for thinking the worst thing that can happen to them is that they run out too fast, but really the most concerning thing is when they malfunction and, well, explode.

Got a Samsung Galaxy SIII? Maybe a Galaxy Note II? Well listen up because there's a new boogeyman on the loose. According to a thread at XDA Developers, there's an exploit out there that can let Android malware apps get at all your physical memory, for the purposes of stealing your data or deleting it or whathaveyou.
