The Samsung Galaxy Note has been the centerpiece of the company’s summer phone launches for years, but times have changed. There won’t be any new Note this year, and instead Samsung will focus on the new Galaxy Z Flip and Fold, as well as a stylus to work with those devices. We’ll also see a new flagship wearable device (and a new OS for it) and a new pair of true wireless stereo headphones. At least that’s what the rumors say, so check out our latest guide on what will debut next week.

Additional VR support for all major PS5 games?
On Tuesday, Sony reportedly revealed more details about the headset at a developer summit, teasing details beyond performance, resolution, and simplified cabling.
Apparently codenamed Next Generation VR (NGVR), it could contain controllers with capacitive touch sensors that detect the distance to your fingers – like the sensor on Nintendo’s JoyCon – but much more sophisticated. The headset appears to offer 110-degree enlarged views, with flexible zoom and eye-tracking to improve resolution wherever you look.
Sony has told the developers that it is planning additional VR support for all AAA releases so that you can play them either in VR or on TV, although it is unclear if this would mean a first-person view, for example Resident evil 7 or Hitmanor simply viewing with a headset what you see on your TV.

The company is offering a $ 100 discount to early risers.
The Heatworks Tetra tabletop dishwasher was first introduced in in the old days, back to CES 2018, and until the car hits the market.

Just fill its onboard water tank, add a dedicated detergent cartridge and turn it on, with the company claiming that it uses a lot less water and energy than washing dishes.
Unfortunately, its small size means you’ll be able to wash three levels of crockery per cycle, but if your home can’t fit a full-sized appliance it might be worth taking a look at. Continue reading…
The researchers say they looked at “systemic flaws” in Facebook’s ad library.
Facebook has found itself in deep water again after the closure of accounts used by a group of New York University political advertising researchers. The project was designed to explore, by scanning the company’s extensive advertising libraries, how political advertisers target individual users. The social network said it had no choice but to block the team after it violated the site’s data collection rules. Meanwhile, NYU said Facebook was prompted to act because it didn’t want third parties to find problems with its systems. Continue reading…
It is cheaper with a large range.
Nissan unveiled 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 Leaf S with a 40 kWh battery costs $ 27,400 or $ 28,375 including destination taxes – that’s $ 20,875 if you’re eligible for the $ 7,500 federal tax credit.
