Samsung has the edge, Planet Fitness makes the gym more comfortable, and Microsoft brings back MS-DOS

Samsung’s Blade Edge is cutting-edge tech

The Samsung Blade Edge is an elaborate stunt, and the description of this unusual device goes into a lot of detail. What is it? It’s a special version of the Galaxy S6 Edge, with an edge so sharp it doubles as a chef’s knife. The body is ceramic, while the blade has a super sharp diamond-edge, along with a handy foldable handle. Samsung promises a 50 percent speed increase in chopping, cutting, and slicing. A finger-detection system keeps your pinkies in place, and a human blood sensor automatically calls the cops if you start using the Blade Edge on the sous chef. Check out the full description for a lot of geeky, techy fun.
