A federal class action lawsuit has been filed in Chicago and it alleges that donations made via PayPal’s Giving Fund platform may never reach the intended charities. PayPal claims its charitable platform raised more than $7 billion last year. Giving Fund enables individuals to make donations to “over a million charities” but the lawsuit alleges that only a fraction of those charities actually see any money because they’re not registered with PayPal. It further adds that donations made to non-registered charities are held by PayPal for six months before they’re transferred to other not-for-profit organizations.

It seems Samsung can’t catch a break. Despite the fact that the company has confirmed when it’s going to officially launch its next-generation flagship smartphone, the leaks keep on coming in. We’ve already seen a couple of leaked hands-on videos and pictures of the Galaxy S8 and now we’re seeing more. The latest pictures show off Samsung’s new flagship smartphone in all its glory.

The latest leak comes from tech publication BGR which claims to have obtained actual photos of the Galaxy S8. The device we see in these pictures appears to be very similar to the renders we’ve seen so far. The bezels are absolutely minimal and there’s no home button, the device actually has on-screen buttons which according to recent reports might be customizable.

We also get to see all four sides of the handset including the ports on the bottom. As far as the specs are concerned, it’s well known that the Galaxy S8 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. It’s going to have a 12 megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera with a flash and fingerprint sensor placed on either side.

Additional features include a personal assistant called Bixby, a USB Type-C port, and a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. Samsung is going to officially unveil the Galaxy S8 on March 29th and that’s when we’ll know how much it costs and when it’s going to be released.

HMD Global, the Finnish company that’s making phones and slapping Nokia’s name on them, took us all on a walk down memory lane last week when it announced a successor to the original Nokia 3310 featurephone that came out over a decade ago. The new Nokia 3310 is still a featurephone but it has been updated a bit so that it’s more of a modern classic. Many would just give into nostalgia and pick one up but if you intend to do that and you’re based in the United States, think again. The new Nokia 3310 won’t be coming to the United States immediately, at least not officially, because it simply won’t be able to work in the country. It uses technology that’s not supported by carriers in the U.S.
