Stan Lee Dead at 95
Stan Lee, the creator of iconic Marvel superheroes such as Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Incredible Hulk, has reportedly died at home, at the age of 95.
Lee is arguably the most famous personality in the comic book industry, and has been credited with helping comic books and superheroes enter the mainstream in the U.S.
In recent years, Lee attended countless fan conventions, readings, and meet-and-greets. He also had featured cameos in many Marvel film adaptations.
Despite the fact that many of Lee’s characters were created more than 50 years ago, they have continued to remain among the most famous comic book characters known to the public, and those characters are likely to live on long past his death, especially given the massive success of Disney’s Marvel Extended Universe franchise.
Samsung Leads Race to Foldable Phones
At a recent press event, tech giant and smartphone manufacturer Samsung demonstrated a combination smartphone/tablet screen that folds to create two different screen sizes.
The screen is named the Infinity Flex Display. Samsung has said that the screen will be used with a new smartphone model scheduled for release sometime in 2019.
Samsung is far from the only company that has been developing a foldable device screen, but they were the first to show a prototype of such a screen.
And while it does offer two different options for screen size, the prototype device was also very thick as a result, making it run counter to attempts in recent years to make smartphones as thin as possible.
Certain analysts have predicted that folding phones will ultimately be unpopular with the public, similar to 3D televisions or VR headsets.
