When Diandra Toyos was shopping at Ikea with her mom and three kids, she had a strange feeling that something was seriously wrong. Call it a mother's intuition or just being an observant parent, but strangers in the couch department were giving this mom a bad vibe. What happened next will send chills down any parent's spine and Diandra is sharing her story to warn everyone about what could happen if families aren't careful. "I noticed a well dressed, middle aged man circling the area, getting closer to me and the kids," she wrote on Facebook. "At one point he came right up to me and the boys, and instinctively I put myself between he and my mobile son. I had a bad feeling." Diandra explained
Body positivity blogger Ana Carolina Rojas has nothing to hide, not even the hate she receives from trolls. Rojas was minding her own business, enjoying a beautiful, warm day of sunbathing and sharing it with her followers when a troll attacked.
Michael Strahan’s role at “Good Morning America” is still ruffling feathers at the morning show. Sources claim fellow anchors on the show are sick of ABC bosses giving him preferential treatment. “They roll out the carpet for [Strahan] while seasoned talent is treated like dirt. He’s been given a lot of opportunity, flexibility, when the others who have been working there longer don’t get that kind of treatment,” a source said. Strahan signed a special deal that allows him to continue to analyze football at “Fox NFL Sunday” and host ABC’s “$100,000 Pyramid.” But he was forced to drop most of his lucrative endorsement deals when he joined the morning show. Meanwhile, pop anchor Lara Spencer, “feels

Look, we've said this a million times before and the odds are fairly good that we'll say it a million more times: Samsung loves to copy Apple. The two companies battled in court for years because of it. Not that we needed any proof beyond what we can see with our own eyes, those court battles uncovered a number of internal documents that showed the great lengths Samsung went to in its efforts to copy Apple. Remember the top-secret 132-page manual that explained how Samsung set out to copy Apple's iPhone pixel by pixel ? Of course you do. Samsung continues to take inspiration from Apple's products to this day (that Jet Black Galaxy S8 sure is pretty), and it's no mystery why. Apple copies things from other companies as well, but it's still the top trend-setter in the consumer electronics industry. Of course, people tend to get carried away with their accusations that Samsung is copying Apple, and such is the case right now with the company's just-announced Galaxy S8+ . Last week, popular Apple blogger John Gruber posted a quick note on Daring Fireball about a Galaxy S8 leak. "Looks like Samsung is beating Apple to the 'hardly any chin or forehead' punch," Gruber wrote. "The top and bottom have bezels, but they’re so small Samsung couldn’t print their ugly logo on the front, finally moving past one of the worst aspects of every other Samsung phone to date." Fair enough. But it was the last line of his post that made me raise an eyebrow: "Are they really going to call the bigger model the 'Plus'? They’re really going to rip off Apple’s naming?" Hmm. I have seen similar comments made by a number of Apple bloggers over the course of the past few weeks, and also by Apple fans on Twitter and elsewhere. It's obviously true that Apple differentiates its larger flagship iPhones with "Plus" branding, and the company has done so since 2014 when it debuted the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Of course, there's just one tiny problem: Samsung had a phone named "Plus" all the way back in 2011. Last time I checked, 2011 came before 2014. Yes, back in July 2011 Samsung released the Galaxy S Plus , a lovely little phone powered by a cutting-edge single-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Scorpion processor. It shipped with Android 2.3.3 and it even had WiMAX support! Anyway, the point is yes, Samsung has a long history of copying Apple - but there are enough real examples of Samsung's plagiarism out there that people shouldn't have to make things up.
