There’s never been more time to catch up on that huge list of worthy movies you’d love to watch, wrap up the final series of an iconic 2000s show, or simply watch the one and only season of. Marvel’s Inhumans on Disney + and laughter and to laugh.
I tackled a list of games that have been around for a long time on my Switch and PlayStation, and moved on. Mass Effect Andromeda is my latest achievement, brought to the fore thanks to the new remastered series. I wrote down my thoughts in detail , but the summary is that it’s probably going to disappoint you if you’re a fan of the show, but there is love and care here, spread across what is arguably a game, a plot, and a universe. too thin.
There are still months to go inside, and although new games are finally starting to appear after delays related to the pandemic (I just started Bravely Default 2), there is enough time to tackle another game (or show) in your backlog. If you haven’t started it already, may I suggest Control?

Pro models will get most of the good stuff, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple will launch four iPhone models in 2021, in the same sizes as the 2020 lineup. That means the mini variant will stay for at least a year – rejoice.
Major upgrades, in addition to energy-efficient 120Hz displays and better cameras, could include bigger batteries and smaller display cutouts. Alas, Kuo said the iPhone . Continue reading.
A better balance between premium and practical
Samsung’s new Chromebook is much easier to recommend than the original, according to associate editor Nathan Ingraham, who reviewed the new machine this week. The company made smart choices, which resulted in a computer that should satisfy more potential customers. We wish the battery lasted longer, and there are much cheaper Chromebooks out there, but if you don’t mind spending more on quality display, sound, and industrial design, the Galaxy Chromebook should be considered.

The Pixel 4 and 4 XL will get dual camera support for ARCore in the coming weeks.
Google’s augmented reality animals and other virtual 3D objects in research may appear more realistic on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL in the coming days. The Google Play Services for AR app, which unlocks experiences created using the tech giant’s ARCore SDK, has been updated with “Dual Camera Stereo Depth on Supported Devices.” An update to Google Developers’ ARCore-enabled device list has indicated that dual camera support is on the way, especially for the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL. It’s just a bit of a mystery why the Pixel 5 hasn’t received the same treatment yet. Continue reading.
This is the first time in almost a year.
For the first time in nearly a year, all 270 Apple Stores in the United States are open. When the pandemic first spread to the United States, Apple temporarily closed some of its retail outlets and said at the time that it planned to reopen on March 27, 2020. While many stores reopened a few months later, some stores mostly remained closed.
Now, just over a year later, stores in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio have reopened to the public. Many sites still operate with restrictions. Some stores only offer in-person purchases if you make an appointment, while others only offer express pickup and tech support. Continue reading.
However, Chrome and Drive are still waiting for a refresh.
Google updated the Gmail iOS app for the first time in months, along with Meet, Sheets, Docs, Calendar, and Tasks. Along with the tasks that now support widgets on iOS 14, these are minor updates focused on bug fixes and performance improvements. This is the first time that Google has rolled out new versions of these apps since Apple began forcing third-party developers to submit. – maybe why Chrome still stands. Continue reading.
The Neutron will carry small satellites to the mega-constellations.
Rocket Lab is developing a larger rocket that can carry much larger payloads than its reusable Electron rocket. At 131 feet tall, the Neutron launcher will be more than double the size of its predecessor, and also ahead of it in lift capacity: it will be capable of carrying 8 metric tons in low earth orbit compared to the 660- Electron. book capacity.
Designed for a future of mega-satellite constellations, the new rocket would take multiple satellites for services like precise mapping and next-gen internet. The Neutron’s larger payload means it can take several small satellites in batches to specific orbital planes, creating a “more focused approach to building” the massive projects, said Peter Beck, founder and CEO of Rocket Lab. The Neutron’s lifting capacity means it is expected to be able to carry 98% of all satellites slated for launch through 2029. Continue reading.
