Samsung Exynos 5 Octa does support LTE, so why isn’t it in our Galaxy S4?

CNETAnalysis: At its Galaxy S4 launch event a couple of weeks back, Samsung somewhat glossed over the new handset’s octo-core processor, despite it being a world-first for a smartphone. We would soon find out why. In the aftermath of the Broadway extravaganza, the company revealed that the US and UK, would miss out on the Exynos 5 Octa S4 and would have to settle for quad-core – albeit much improved quad-core. Most observers had assumed it was to ensure Brits and Yanks, among others, had a faster phone, but also access to the faster internet too, as the LTE version of the device runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon E50. However, in a post on its @SamsungExynos Twitter feed late on Thursday, the company confirmed that the new Exynos 5 does support LTE on all frequencies. The tweet reads: “Update: The Exynos 5 Octa supports LTE and all 20 bands.” So what gives, Samsung? Supply shortage? Confirmation that LTE support is not a factor seems to suggest that its a supply issue preventing the Exynos 5 Octa going global on the S4 handset. This remains unconfirmed but, if true, it would represent somewhat of a failure on Samsung’s part to get all their ducks in row before the Galaxy S4 goes on sale on April 26. It does mean that an eight-core Galaxy S4 variant could potentially be rolled out once Samsung amps-up production of the phone, but Samsung is staying mum on that too. The perceived benefits of the Octa 5 processor are efficiency rather than speed. The tech is built on ARM’s big.LITTLE framework, meaning there are four cores for handling the power-sapping and four for handling the phone’s mundane tasks, which will result in smoother performance and better battery life. Octa-core? Quad-core? Does it matter to you? Let us know in the comments below. Related Stories Nvidia’s Tegra 4i uncovered: it’s Tegra 4 for the masses

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Ding Dong Bubble Gum Releases Animated Full Song 2015

All hail the Ding Dong Bubblegum Super Cat! The latest superhero in the line of brand-inspired animated characters.
Last year, Hilal aired a 1 minute story, showing the animated Super Cat fighting off the mice aka gooneys, who attempt to steal her Ding Dong bubblegum. The video, meant to be a teaser, cuts off with a ‘To Be Continued’ sign.

Now, we see the rest of the story….
Super Cat is back and she’s kicking mice butt, facing multiple obstacles, using her trusted bells and outsmarting her ‘nephew', the Lion.
All this and she manages to take back what’s rightfully hers… the bubblegum!
The best thing about Ding Dong is that the “Cat” in the ad has always been the same. Talk about consistency.
An extended version of the song has been introduced but still goes along the same lines of “Aik billi moti taazi thi, jo mazay se ding dong khati thi”
All in all, a fun video to watch about the age-old brand that most people consider as part of their childhood.
