Guy proposes to girlfriend. Drops ring in gutter. New York Police tracks him down and saves the day

This guy mistakenly dropped the ring in a gutter while proposing to his girlfriend.

Nothing can come in between of you and your happiness when your love is true. And what happened to this couple in New York just proved it.

A man proposing to his girlfriend at the famous Times Square in New York was in for a rude shock when the ring slipped from his finger accidentally and fell into the gutter right below his feet.

The man tried a little bit to extract the ring out of the gutter but unfortunately couldn’t, so the upset couple just went their way and forgot about the ring.

The entire scene was captured in a CCTV footage by a camera installed nearby. The New York Police Department aka NYPD got hold of that video and immediately got into action. They extracted the ring out of the gutter and then began the real challenge.

They posted the video on their Twitter page and asked people to recognize the couple if they could, because the couple had not filed any request with the police.

Smartphone Users in India Consuming 1GB Data a Day on Average: Nielsen

Smartphone Users in India Consuming 1GB Data a Day on Average: Nielsen

Smartphone users in India are consuming an average 1GB data per day – from an average 4GB a month not long ago – and spending more than 90 minutes on online activities daily across the entry-level, mid-range and premium segments, a Nielsen India report said on Thursday. Additionally, the report said the average selling price of mobile phones is rising too thanks to growing demand for affordable smartphones.

India has emerged among the most preferred smartphone markets in the world owing to affordable handset prices and low-cost data penetration, triggering a huge replacement demand among the customers across segments, the Nielsen Smartphone 2018 report added.

“The advent of high-speed 4G Internet, less-expensive mobile handsets and a correction in call data charges have encouraged the speedy adoption of smartphones in India,” said Abhijit Matkar, Director-Technology IPG – Nielsen India.

To meet the demand of the mass market, new Chinese and Indian handset makers have launched affordable handsets which are under Rs. 5,000.

“This sudden influx of affordable smartphones created a whole segment of new consumers who either upgraded from feature phones or were new mobile users altogether,” Matkar said in a statement.

When it comes to app usage, chat and VoIP apps dominate usage across customer segment followed by browser apps.

Interestingly, uTorrent Beta app dominates across categories when it comes of consumption of data, followed by YouTube across customer segments, the findings showed.

The smartphone users spend more than 90 minutes a day on online activities while the premium segment takes the usage up to 130 minutes per day.

“The price of handsets and data is emerging as a remarkable surrogate for monitoring the ever-widening set of users and their smartphone usage, thereby facilitating business and marketing strategy for better return on investment (ROI)”, Matkar added.

Despite the availability of economically-priced smartphones, average smartphone prices are still increasing.

“In fact, the average cost has steadily risen from about Rs. 7,700 in 2015 to about Rs. 10,000 in 2017,” said the report.

The appetite for data consumption has risen over the last 15 to 18 months. The highest engagement occurs on apps that consume a lot of data like Facebook, WhatsApp Messenger, Instagram, and Google Chrome, the report added.

LG Pay Quick trademarked for Europe, USA, South Korea

Samsung Pay, LG Pay, Google Pay and Apple Pay are some of the services that allow plenty of customers to use their phones instead of cards. Samsung also introduced the Pay mini platform that has a digital wallet for bills and other online payments, but no tap-and-pay option.

The fellow Korean competitor LG is also planning to introduce a similar feature called LG Pay Quick, according to trademark listings.

LG Pay Quick was trademarked with EUIPO, USPTO and KIPO – the intellectual and property offices respectively for the European Union, the United States and South Korea. Expectations are the service to appear first in the homeland of the company where it is currently available.

Although countries from the approved regions support wireless payments from other companies, LG’s service is about to arrive in the United States. One of the reasons is the unusual WMC (Wireless Magnetic Communication) system LG employs instead of NFC like Apple, Samsung, and Google devices.

Phones that have LG Pay enabled are LG G6, LG G7 ThinQ, LG V30, LG V30S ThinQ, LG V35 ThinQ, the latest LG V40 ThinQ, and the midranger LG K10 (2018).

Samsung’s Galaxy S10 trio and foldable phone detailed in insider report

Samsung’s plans for the early part of 2019 have been detailed by company insiders, who spoke to Bloomberg.

The report reveals that Samsung is working on three Galaxy S10 devices, one of which could be a 5G-ready phone, and planning to finally show off its new foldable smartphone.

The Galaxy S10 lineup will consist of three phones. A 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 with dual-curved AMOLED screen, triple cameras on the back (regular, ultra-wide and telephoto), in-display fingerprint scanner and an under the display selfie camera. There Plus model will be essentially the same, but with a larger display.

The entry-level Galaxy S10 will have a flat AMOLED display and will likely get a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The report doesn’t mention cameras but we expect this cheaper Galaxy S10 to have a single camera on the back.

As for Samsung’s foldable smartphone, the report states that Samsung will be looking to dominate a niche market with potential to grow – no company currently offers a foldable-screen phone, although Huawei is hoping to deliver one soon.

The foldable phone was supposed to be shown this year but that seems unlikely at this point.

Finally the insider report claims that Samsung is mulling over ditching the headphone jack but it may push the decision further back.
