Samsung’s Galaxy Note has been the center of the company’s summer phone launches for years, but times have changed. There is no new Note this year, and Samsung will instead focus on the new Galaxy Z Flip and Fold, as well as the pen to work with these devices. We’ll also see a new feather that can be worn (and a new OS next to it) and a new pair of real wireless stereo headphones. At least that’s what the rumor mill says, so take a peek our latest guide on which will debut next week.

Optional VR support for all major PS5 games?
Sony reportedly revealed more details about the headset at a developer summit on Tuesday, revealing details besides performance, resolution and simplified cabling.
Apparently codenamed next-generation VR (NGVR), it could feature controllers with capacitive touch sensors that sense the distance to your fingers — like sensors on Nintendo’s JoyCon — but far more sophisticated. The headphones will obviously offer a larger display of 110 degrees, with flexible scaling resolution and eye contact to improve resolution where you look.
Sony has told developers that it is planning optional VR support for all AAA releases, so you can play them either in VR or on a TV, although it’s not clear if that will mean a first-person perspective, like Resident Evil 7 or Hitman, or simply a headphone-based display on what you would see on the TV.

The company is offering a $ 100 discount for early birds.
The company Tetra table dishwasher Heatworks was originally introduced previous times, back to CES 2018, and so far it has been necessary for the machine to reach the market. His (not exactly) new concept is to wash dishes from the kitchen table, without the need for plumbing. Just fill his water tank, add a custom detergent cartridge and run it, and the company says it consumes much less water and energy than washing dishes.
Unfortunately, its small size means you’ll only be able to clean three-seat dishes per cycle, but if your home can’t accommodate a full-size unit, it might be worth a look. Keep reading.
The researchers say they examined “systemic flaws” in the way Facebook’s ad library worked.
Facebook found itself in deep water again after shutting down accounts used by a team of researchers from New York University that deal with political advertising. The project is designed to explore, crawling through the company’s extensive ad libraries, how political advertisers target individual users. The social network said it had no choice but to block the team after violating the website’s data scraping rules. NYU, meanwhile, said Facebook was called upon to act because it did not want third parties to find problems in its systems. Keep reading.
It is cheaper with a longer range.
Nissan has introduced its 2022 Leaf with more standard features and a lower base price making it the cheapest electric vehicle in the US. The new base model, the Leaf S with a 40 kWh battery, costs $ 27,400 or $ 28,375 including a destination fee — that’s $ 20,875 if you qualify for a $ 7,500 federal tax credit.

Intel hasn’t had a great five or six years, and its own processes have failed just as competitors jump ahead with new manufacturing processes.

In the latest episode of Increased, our silicon expert Chris Schodt goes into what’s going on and explains why, if Gelsinger succeeds, we’ll all be talking about 20-Angstrom chips in the near future.
