Before Samsung’s latest smartphones were unveiled it was rumored that the company has a rather strict diet plan for its TouchWiz software. It was rumored to remove all bloat from the software and even limit the number of apps that would be pre-installed on the devices. Two of Samsung’s services appear to have made the cut because Milk Music and Milk Video will both be pre-installed on Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge when they hit the market next month.

If you want to use all of the features that an Android Wear smartwatch offers then you are required to hook it up to an Android smartphone. Most smartwatches aren’t 3G or 4G enabled so they need to feed off the data connection from the smartphone. There is no official support for the iPhone yet but Google has never outright denied that support for the iPhone is impossible.

It was first rumored last year that Samsung is going to ditch the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, a processor that is going to power many flagships this year, in favor of its own Exynos 7420 processor. Rumors had everybody believing that this had something to do with the overheating issues that the Snapdragon 810 was facing. It later turned out to be more of a business decision on Samsung’s part, to reduce its reliance on Qualcomm, and the company’s CEO has offered an explanation of sorts on this matter.

Netflix is one of the most popular online video streaming services that operates in a handful of markets. The company isn’t as strict about blocking users from outside of supported markets like some of its rivals, Hulu is a good example, so Netflix loves in Australia and New Zealand have always been able to access the service by taking advantage of a couple of loopholes.
