By Arshad Mohammed WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's proposed 28 percent budget cut for U.S. diplomacy and foreign aid next year would preserve $3.1 billion in security aid to Israel but reduce funding for the United Nations, climate change and cultural exchange programs. The budget proposal for the fiscal year beginning on Oct. 1 is a first shot in a battle with Congress - which controls the government purse strings - that will play out over months and may yield spending far beyond Trump's requests. Congress, controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans, may reject some or many of the proposed cuts to the U.S. State Department and Agency for International Development (USAID)...

Apple's iPhone 7 Plus features a screen that measures 5.5 inches diagonally. While nothing is set in stone at this point, multiple reports from reliable sources suggest that the Galaxy S8 - the smaller of the two flagship phones set to be unveiled by Samsung two weeks from today - sports a display that measures 5.8 inches diagonally. On paper, it seems like these two smartphones should be relatively similar in size, no? Well, as we can see in a new hands-on comparison video, Samsung's bold new Galaxy S8 design is even more impressive than we thought when you line it up next to Apple's flagship phablet. With the Galaxy S8, Samsung has managed to stuff a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display into a...

A source briefed on the matter told VentureBeat on Monday that the scheduled release date for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ has been pushed back to a week to April 28th. As VentureBeat notes, this can't technically be considering a delay since the phones haven't actually been announced yet, but with all of the leaks and rumors that backed up the April 21st date, it seems likely that Samsung has decided to adjust its release timing slightly with just weeks to go until the reveal event. The source didn't provide any specific reasoning behind the internal delay,...
