This is CNet and here are the stories that matter right now. The bulletin of the atomic scientists moved its famous clock closer to doomsday. The non-profit group decided this year to move the clock toward the end of humanity from three minutes to two and a half with midnight signaling the apocalypse. They pointed to unsettling comments about nuclear weapons by US President Donald Trump and rising global temperatures as reasons for the shift. Ford issued a pair of recalls for two very different vehicles. Approximately 8,000 of it's popular F-150 pick up trucks have instrument clusters that may lose functionality in cold temperatures. The second recall is much smaller with just 18 Ford Focus and C Max vehicles needing inspection and repair to body apron joints. All affected vehicles will receive fixes at no charge. And finally, a photo and a tweet may have revealed the final look and release date of Samsung's upcoming flagship device. Blogger Evan Blass who has a reliable track record of leaking information on unannounced phones tweeted a picture he claims is the Samsung Galaxy S8. He also suggested a release date of March 29, 2017. When contacted, Samsung declined to comment. Stay up to date with the latest by downloading cnet tech today app in the Apple app store.
