By Heekyong Yang and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - Keen to make its foldable smartphone the next big thing, Samsung Electronics Co <005930.KS> will depart from its usual policy of keeping product plans highly secret and provide some details of the phone's key features for app developers this week. The goal is garnering critical feedback as new technologies will require developers to tweak apps to make sure they run smoothly when the phone folds out into tablet form. Samsung needs to get the foldable phone right - hoping it will reverse steep declines in profit for its mobile division and restore some of the premium cachet its brand has lost to Apple Inc <AAPL.O>. The move also underscores a new level of caution in product planning after a costly recall for its fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 in 2016. "Unlike our flagship products, the foldable phone is a completely new concept in terms of design and user experience, which requires a different approach," said a Samsung official … [Read more...] about Changing tack: Samsung to reveal some features of foldable phone this week

The White House announced that it is sending four top economic hands, led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, to China next week in the hopes of negotiating a resolution to the escalating trade conflict that has rattled shares of the aerospace giant. And the administration named an acting head of the Export-Import Bank - the lending facility derided by conservative critics as the "Bank of Boeing" - that has been hobbled by vacancies since 2015. But the company's shares slid nearly 4 percent amid a broader bloodbath for industrial stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average tumbled for the fifth consecutive day, its longest losing streak in more than a year, falling 600 points at one point before recovering slightly to close down 1.7 percent.

The mayor has now raised more than $5.7 million in his bid for a third term, state campaign finance records show.Friday’s heavy haul was made possible by businessman Willie Wilson recently giving his campaign $100,000. Wilson’s move erased state-imposed limits on how much much candidates can raise from a single donor.Under state law, individual donors are limited to a $5,600 contribution to a single campaign. … [Read more...] about Emanuel flexes fundraising muscle with $1.7 million deposited in a single day
