How the Galaxy S8 compares to the competition

Samsung has finally taken the wraps off the Galaxy S8, its game-changing flagship smartphone for the year. It's unlike any other device we've seen before in terms of design and functionality, and it promises to mark a major change in the way that smartphones look and feel and work.

Ex-Christie associate gets two years in prison in 'Bridgegate' scandal

Bill Baroni, 45, the former deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, was found guilty in November of plotting to close down access lanes at the heavily used George Washington Bridge in 2013 in an act of political retribution. Prosecutors said the massive traffic jam they deliberately created in the town of Fort Lee was intended to punish its Democratic mayor for refusing to back Christie’s re-election bid, as the governor’s aides tried to burnish his bipartisan credentials in advance of his run for president.
