Top 'everyday emergencies' for parents - including tantrums and sibling squabbles
Exasperated mums and dads have to deal with up to six “family emergencies” a day, research has found – from bumps and bruises to sibling squabbles and tantrums.Children falling over and grazing themselves topped the list of “everyday emergencies” for 21%, followed by sibling squabbles (18%), and running late for appointments (17%).And 17% of the 1,000 mums and dads polled, who have children aged 0-16, also admitted they struggle to understand their children's homework, and have disagreements with their youngsters about bedtime.Other daily conundrums to make the top 10 list included leaving the house without snacks in tow (15%), rescuing beloved toys or comforters (15%), and losing internet connectivity when watching a child’s favourite show (15%).And it emerged that 88% of parents turn to tech to help solve these continuous challenges.Vodafone commissioned the research, in recognition of its network being relied upon by the 77% of emergency services who have connectivity contracts with the provider.The study also found when solving these everyday problems, 38% will use their smartphone for assistance, while a third (32%) phone friends or family members.And 28% seek advice from a voice-controlled personal assistant, such as Amazon Alexa, or WhatsApp groups with other parents.In fact, mums and dads turn to tech to manage five out of six of these little “everyday emergencies” in a 24-hour-period.And a child turning three years old emerged as the peak time where turning to tech is most common.At this point, parents laud technology solutions such as apps that help them keep in touch with their child’s school or nursery (33%), online booking platforms to arrange medical appointments for children (26%), and online shopping apps

Samsung's new Galaxy Z smartphones can 'fold in half just like a piece of paper'
iPhone: Samsung has launched two incredible new smartphones that make Apple's handsets look old hat.The South Korean tech giant today announced the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, both of which use amazing folding screen technology to fit easily into your pocket.It's the fourth generation of Samsung's folding phones, so if you've wanted something a little different from the generic black brick everyone else has, this might be your best opportunity yet. READ NEXT: WhatsApp users could be fined for sending 'banned' messages The Fold4 has a vertical hinge which lets you turn it from a phone into a tablet, while the Flip4 is more like a classic flip phone that folds into a square in your pocket.The difference between the new Samsung devices and old flip phones is that they are completely touchscreen, and feature some powerful hardware and cameras to boot.Conor Pierce, vice president of Samsung UK & Ireland, said: "With our all-new Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold4 devices, we've pushed the limits of what's possible with two radically different smartphone experiences that allow people to express their individuality—because there's no one-size-fits-all for foldables anymore."The Z Flip 4 is designed for selfies, with the phone folding at different angles to act as a tripod for group photos. It's slimmer than the previous model and boasts quicker charging.Meanwhile, the Z Fold 4 is more of a workhorse, featuring a really powerful processor, three cameras (one at 50MP), and a nifty multitasking tool.

Real-life Dr Dolittle AI could soon 'let dogs talk to us' like one-year-old babies
Dogs seem to have an awful lot to say, but have you ever wondered what they're actually on about?Soon, you might not have to, as a range of companies are working on Dr Doolittle tech that could let you chat with your favourite hound.One South Korean company, Petpuls, began shipping an AI-powered dog collar last year that analyses their barks to measure their emotional state. READ NEXT: WhatsApp users could be fined for sending 'banned' types of message if caught out However, that's just the beginning, as some organisations are going even further by building full human-animal translation tools.Another firm, Zoolingua, was founded in 2018. It's been working for some time on a mobile app that can translate dog body language and sounds to English using machine learning.The only obstacle in the way is that training an AI to understand dogs at this stage requires humans to interpret what a dog's behaviour might mean before feeding this data to the AI.Dogs are actually much better at understanding human language than you might think.According to one study from researchers at Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary, dogs can associate objects with language and even learn a vocabulary of 100 words at about the same rate as a baby.The researchers found that six border collies were able to pick out old and new toys by name over a week, and that they could even recall the words after two months.Of course, any dog owner that's ever uttered the dreaded W-A-L-K word can tell you that.One California firm, the Earth Species Project, is even working on AI that could one day help humans decode animal communication for all species.
