You might think you love your iPhone 7, but you definitely don’t love it more than one Ukrainian man who recently made a great sacrifice to get one: giving up his very name. 

The possibly-too-hardcore Apple fan, formerly known as Olexander Turin, actually changed his name to iPhone Sim (sim means “seven” in Ukrainian) to win an iPhone 7 from a local electronics store. 

An Apple iPhone 7 costs about $850 in Ukraine, so when the store offered a free unit to the first five people to change their name to iPhone 7, according to the AP, the 20-year-old Mr. Sim rushed to change his legal name, which costs just about $2 in Ukraine.  Read more…

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
