The first trailer for Exposure — the upcoming, Samsung-branded reality TV show from Hulu that’s one part photography competition, one part Galaxy S21 Ultra advertisement — is here. But for a show that’s been paid for by Samsung explicitly to highlight the power of the cameras on Samsung’s phones, it’s almost suspiciously light on Samsung branding. If you just gave Exposure a cursory glance (or, more likely, stumbled across it on Hulu one night) there’s nothing about it that immediately betrays its status as Samsung branded content. There’s no Samsung logo on the title card, no mention of the Galaxy S21 Ultra or its 108-megapixel camera system, or the various software add-ons that help Samsung’s smartphone stand out from the rest. In fact, Exposure ’s trailer just gives the impression of being a photography-centered competition series, like The Great British Baking Show or Chopped. Look more closely, of course, and the cracks start to show. A photography contest … [Read more...] about The first trailer for Samsung’s new branded Hulu show is suspiciously light on Samsung

The iPhone 12 represents a stark departure from its predecessors, courtesy of a completely refreshed design and some notably improved components. With many an iPhone XR owner due for an upgrade after a long two-year contract, it’s the iPhone 12 that’s likely to be in their crosshairs. So how much of a step up does the iPhone 12 present? And is the iPhone XR still a viable purchase in 2021? The two-year gap between the release of these handsets represents a long time in the smartphone world. Let’s see if Apple has put that development time to good use. iPhone 12 vs iPhone XR price and availability The iPhone 12 landed in shops on October 23, 2020. Prices for Apple’s current flagship range from $799 / £799 / AU$1,349 for the 64GB model, to $949 / £949 / AU$1,599 for 256GB. The 128GB model tucked in-between costs $849 / £849 / AU$1,429.

Why it matters: Many years ago, video games were considered a pastime reserved for younger people—something you "grow out of." That outdated view changed, thankfully, and today we're seeing more people over the age of 50 enjoying games than ever before. According to a new report from GWI (via Gamesindustry.biz ), the number of gamers aged between 55 – 64 (aka Baby Boomers) has grown 32% since 2018. The puzzle/platform genre is the favorite among this demographic (27%), followed by shooters (24%) then adventure/open-world (22%). Looking at a broader age range, it's revealed that 32% of Gen X and Boomers (ages 38 – 64) who use the internet play games every day; that's only 5 percent less than Gen Z and millennials (ages 16 – 37). Another stereotype that no longer rings true is that that most gamers are single males. Just 3% more male participants play games daily than females, and 33% of both sexes are married. Elsewhere, it's found that 86% of internet users … [Read more...] about More Gen Xers and Baby Boomers are playing games
The hard-to-buy PS5 seems to be in stock today at certain online stores in the US, and while we do highly recommend bundles from GameStop, Antonline and Costco (resellers can't profit off of readily available games and accessories so availability lasts longer), you should stay away from overpriced PS5 options as well as scams in which you'll never get the console. No one on social media will sell you a console. Real PS5 restock alerts: Follow @mattswider, our PS5 restock Twitter tracker for notifications when the next PS5 restock is live at all US stores. It's the fastest way to get real-time updates. Do not buy directly off Twitter users – which are all scams – only to the websites Matt points you to. The biggest offender with the household name is Sears , which enables third-party resellers to charge $1,099 or more for a a variety of PS5 bundles. We've seen good bundles go for as much as $800 with three games included, an extra controller and the PS5 camera, but … [Read more...] about Don’t buy this PS5 bundle today – wait for the next restock update
So you’re considering a projector? Perhaps you’re a movie fan who wants to curate their own home cinema night, popcorn and all. Or you’re a gamer who wants to step out onto a distant planet and blast life-sized aliens to smithereens? With the right projector you can do all of these things, and so much more. If you are indeed ready to take the plunge, or are looking to upgrade, there are a few considerations to take into account. Projectors require a little more planning and setting up when compared with televisions. To get the best out of one, you’ll need to attach it to the ceiling, as – unlike TVs – you’ll need distance between the lens and the screen to project. (Unless of course, you go for a short throw model, but we’ll talk a little more on this later.) A ceiling-mounted beamer also eliminates the possibility of shadows cast by passing people or pets. Not all need to be ceiling mounted as smaller projectors can be moved in and out of a room as needed, but Sony’s range … [Read more...] about Should I buy a Sony projector?
