Malaysia's opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim says he has enough support from MPs to form a government [Lim Huey Teng/Reuters] 23 Sep 2020 Malaysia’s opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim on Wednesday said he had secured a “strong majority” from lawmakers to form a new government, seven months after a power grab within the ruling coalition brought down the administration elected in May 2018. Anwar said he had been “approached by a number of MPs from various parties” who were unhappy with the existing leadership of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin. Sitting next to his wife, Anwar told a news conference his support from lawmakers “means that the administration of Muhyiddin has fallen” and insisted that his government had the mandate of the people. He declined to reveal the numbers ...

Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 do so with the Health Monitor app. Kris Holt, @krisholt5h ago 4Comments 79Shares  Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 users in the US can take electrocardiogram (ECG) readings starting today through the Samsung Health Monitor app. Samsung said in early August the feature was coming to the devices after it received FDA approval. The ECG app was already available in South Korea. You can use the app to monitor your heart rhythm for irregularities and conditions like atrial fibrillation. The ECG feature doesn’t detect heart attacks, however. To use it, first make sure your watch has a snug fit and place your arm on a flat surface. After you open the Samsung Healt...

Samsung's Galaxy S20 FE is a flagship for people who can't afford flagships $700 gets you a colorful, powerful 'Fan Edition' phone. Chris Velazco, @chrisvelazco8h ago 22Comments 86Shares Samsung Unlike the last two we've sat through, today's Galaxy Unpacked isn't all about a pricey new Samsung flagship phone -- instead, the star is a relatively cheap one. (Emphasis on "relatively.") After weeks of spot-on leaks, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is here, and for Samsung, this launch couldn't come soon enough. We'll get to why that is soon -- for now, it's important to note that the Fan Edition is a fascinating blend of premium and mid-range. It packs the same Snapdragon 865 chipset used in the original S20 series, except it's paired wi...

A bike for those who love the Triumph name. Nick Summers, @nisummers7h ago 7Comments 107Shares  For many, the Triumph name is synonymous with classic British motorcycles. Circular headlamps, long leather seats; the kind that Steve McQueen rode during the climactic finale of The Great Escape. But Triumph actually started out in 1884 as a pedal-powered bicycle manufacturer. The company’s motorcycles came a little later and the bike business was ultimately sold off and shuffled between a few different owners including Raleigh. It’s felt like an eternity since I’ve seen a new bicycle with the Triumph name. That’s all changed with the Trekker GT, an e-bike designed by the Triumph Motorcycles team in the UK. Partly designed, anyway. Triumph ha...

UN General Assembly: US-China tensions flare over coronavirus

News
22 September 2020 Media captionTrump, Xi Jinping and Guterres address the UN General Assembly Tensions between the US and China came to the fore of the annual UN General Assembly in New York, with US President Donald Trump blaming China for the spread of coronavirus. He called for China to be held "accountable" for the pandemic.  In his speech, Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country had "no intention to enter a Cold War with any country". Ties between the two world powers are strained on a number of fronts. This year's summit at New York is largely being held virtually, with world leaders providing pre-recorded speeches. The new format meant some of the geopolitical theatre normally on offer at the key UN meeting was absent. Each country was represented by...
