GTA V smashes several Guinness World Records

By Don Reisinger, CNET

Grand Theft Auto V's success over the past month has been huge, but according to Guinness, it's also been ground-breaking.

Guinness on Tuesday announced that Grand Theft Auto V has set six world records since its launch, adding to its previous title of "most viewed trailer." The game, which launched last month, has become the best-selling action-adventure game of all time, the best-selling video game, and the fastest entertainment property to ever net $1 billion. The game also has reached the heights on revenue generated in a 24-hour period.

Samsung Galaxy Round: The First Curved Smartphone

Samsung announced today its Galaxy Round, the world's first smartphone with a curved display. The phone uses Samsung's flexible screen technology, but the phone itself doesn't actually flex or bend. Instead the 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen has a slight curve, or smile, to it, which Samsung says offers a "comfortable hand-grip feeling."

The curved display doesn't just offer aesthetic and comfort improvements, Samsung says. With the Roll Effect, users can tilt or roll the device on a table to check missed calls, remaining battery life and more. Additionally, Samsung has built in "one-hand operation features," which bring some settings or controls to the sides of the screen.

But before you get too excited about holding the curved screen in your hand, the Round will be available only in Korea for now, and according to The Wall Street Journal, it will cost a whopping 1,089,000 won, or $1,013. It will launch there in a "Luxury Brown" color this month.

Given the price tag and the limited launch, Samsung seems to be experimenting with the curved display technology as competitors such as LG also gear up to mass produce flexible displays and batteries for smartphones. That ultimately means your phone is going to stay flat for a while longer.

Tattooed Jesus billboard angers Christian faithful worldwide.

A billboard featuring a depiction of Jesus Christ with tattoos and the website jesustattoo.org has ignited a debate in around the world over the limits of decency and religious icons.

The billboard advertises the site JesusTattoo.org, a site that features a video of Jesus removing tattooed words off customers’ bodies.

The words removed include “useless,” “addicted” and “outcast.” The Jesus then adds new words like “freedom,” “brave” and “accepted.”

The website’s creators say the site is meant to share the “life-changing gift of peace and acceptance if you choose to build your relationship with Jesus.”
