Does It Still Make Sense To Buy A Gaming Phone In 2022?

Netflix with ads might not come with offline viewing

Netflix's upcoming ad-supported tier might not be the best streaming option for commuters and other viewers who frequently watch on the go. Developer Steve Moser has discovered text within the code of the service's iPhone app that says Downloads available on all plans except Netflix with ads. If viewers can't download content to their devices on the tier, that means they won't be able to watch their shows or movies while offline. Netflix neither confirmed nor denied the absence of offline viewing with the offering, but it told TechCrunch : We are still in the early days of deciding how to launch a lower priced, ad-supported option and no decisions have been made. So this is all just speculation at this point. Back in July, Netflix co-CEO and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos admitted in an earnings call that the upcoming subscription option will not include all of the service's licensed content at launch. The company still has to renegotiate deals with studios to be able to offer their shows and movies alongside ads. Similarly, the absence of offline viewing might also have a legitimate reason other than Netflix wanting to compel the tier's subscribers to pay more for premium membership. As TechCrunch notes, it could be technically challenging to serve ads with offline content. In fact, Netflix won't be the only streaming platform with an ad-supported option that doesn't come with offline viewing. HBO Max's and Hulu's, for instance, don't have a download function either. Based on Netflix's statement, though, things could still change by the time the tier launches early next year.

There are two vulnerabilities addressed, according to the document. A Kernel issue described as an application may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges, along with a WebKit issue described as processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution. For both of these issues, Apple says they are aware of reports that the issue may have been actively exploited. Here are the security notes for the update: Kernel Available for: iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation) Impact: An application may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges.

Nintendo is reportedly investigating claims of sexual misconduct

Nintendo may respond quickly to allegations of sexual discrimination and harassment at its American division. A Kotaku source has reportedly shared a company-wide message from Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser revealing that the Switch creator is actively investigating the misconduct claims. The firm will always look into assertions like these and encourages workers to report violations, Bowser reportedly said. We've asked Nintendo for comment. The company has previously reacted to incidents elsewhere in the industry, however. In November, Bowser said the accusations behind the Activision Blizzard scandal were distressing and disturbing. Days later, Nintendo pledged to increase the number of female managers. Several female game testers told Kotaku that they'd faced multiple forms of harassment and discrimination at Nintendo. Senior-ranking testers allegedly made unwanted advances and comments. Anti-LGBT remarks, pay gaps and attempts to suppress criticism were also part of the workplace culture, according to the allegations. Female workers are believed to be underrepresented at Nintendo as a whole (37 percent), and particularly among contract-based game testers (10 percent). It's too soon to know if any investigation will lead to firings or reforms. If accurate, however, the scoop is a reminder that misconduct complaints haven't been limited to one developer. Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft and others have had to address concerns as well it may reflect cultural issues across the industry.

Apples iPhone 14 event will reportedly be held a week earlier this year

Mark Gurman of Bloomberg reportedly has the inside track on the timing of Apples September event. According to the industry insider, Apple is aiming to hold this years big iPhone and Apple Watch event on Wednesday September 7, the first Wednesday in the month and the earliest an iPhone event has been held since it moved from June to September in 2012. We had expected the iPhone event to be help on Tuesday, September 13, as per its usual timing. Other than the earlier date, the report says that Apple is expected to stick to its typical patterns this year. That means announcing the new Apple Watch at the same time as the new iPhone lineup, and potentially other products like AirPods and a new iPad (though that could be announced in October instead). Also in keeping with prior releases, you can expect the new iPhone to go up for preorder on Friday, September 9, with availability in stores a week later on September 16. The report claims that some retail stores have been told to prepare for a major new product release on September 16. The event is expected to be a pre-recorded, polished, online streaming affair as it has been for the last few years, rather than a live in-person presentation. Invitations for the live stream will likely go out on Tuesday, August 30. The iPhone 14 is expected to switch things up a bit from the last few releases. According to rumors, the regular iPhone 14 will replace the mini variant with a Max model, and will continue to use the A15 chip, albeit the slightly more powerful version found in the iPhone 13 Pro models. The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have an always-on display, new pill + hole front camera layout, a big new 48MP rear camera sensor, and a new A16 chip.

ISS spacewalk interrupted by suit malfunction

A Russian cosmonaut just dealt with a rare spacesuit problem. As CNN 's Jackie Wattles observed , mission control ordered Oleg Artemyev back to the International Space Station's airlock after encountering a suit issue. While the exact nature of the trouble wasn't clear as of this writing, NASA commentators noted a slight fluctuation in the suit's battery power. Artemyev returned safely, plugged into the station's power supply and resumed operations. We've asked NASA for comment. In a statement to Space.com , spokesperson Bob Navias said Artemyev never was in any danger when the anomaly occurred around 12PM Eastern. Artemyev and fellow Russian Denis Matveev were in the midst of outfitting the ESA's robotic arm with cameras and other equipment changes. Happening now: Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev has repeatedly been ordered by mission control to get back to the ISS airlock during a spacewalk because of an issue with his spacesuit. Drop everything and start going back right away Jackie Wattles (@jackiewattles) August 17, 2022 While this appears to have been a mild incident, it may have produced unpleasant flashbacks. Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano's suit leaked during two spacewalks (the first initially went undetected) in July 2013. During the second sortie, Parmitano's helmet filled with water and made it difficult to breathe his calm return to base may have helped save his life, according to a NASA report. The incident led the agency to pause all non-emergency spacewalks until it isolated the cause (a clogged filter) and took steps to prevent future crises. Artemyev's issue might not lead to a similar review. However, it underscores the continuing fragility of space exploration. Even a seemingly minor issue can become serious in space, and mission teams don't want to take any chances.

There are three Apple Watch models in the works, including the new Apple Watch Series 8, a refreshed Apple Watch SE , and an all-new Pro version of the Apple Watch that is expected to feature a larger body, updated design, and more rugged build. There are also plans for a new low-cost iPad , updated iPad Pro models, a Mac Pro with Apple silicon chips and more, but these devices could be saved for a second October event. If Apple does indeed move ahead with a September 7 event, we can expect to get official invites approximately one week before, perhaps before the end of August. Apple has already been preparing the pre-recorded event, indicating that it will again take place virtually rather than in person. That said, there could be an in-person component with some members of the media invited. Gurman says that Apple has told some retail employees to prepare for a new product release on Friday, September 16, which suggests the new iPhone and Apple Watch models could see a release on that date.

iOS 16: How to Lift Subjects From Images on the Web

In iOS 16 , currently in beta, Apple has made it possible to isolate the subject of a picture from its background so that you can copy it to the clipboard for use elsewhere. This feature also works for images on the web. Keep reading to learn how it works. With iOS 16, Apple has enhanced its Visual Look Up capability for photos to such an extent you can now drag subjects right out of images, and it works not only in the Photos app, but also Safari. That means you can isolate subjects from images you found on the web and then share them in another app. In Safari, find a webpage with an image that contains a clearly-defined subject. Long press on the image and select Copy Subject from the popover menu. Now, exit Safari and then launch Messages, Mail, Notes, or another app that accepts images. In the chosen app, long press on the input field and tap Paste in the popover menu to insert your isolated subject. Note that this feature doesn't work in third-party browsers like Chrome or Firefox. Also, it uses advanced machine learning and image analysis, therefore it is only available on phones with the A12 Bionic or newer chip. The A12 Bionic processor debuted in 2018 in the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR, so you need to be using one of these iPhones or a later model for it to work.

iOS 16: How to Share Safari Tab Groups

In iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 , currently in beta, Apple allows you to share Tab Groups in Safari. Keep reading to learn how it's done. Introduced in iOS 15 , Tab Groups are designed to make organizing and preserving open tabs more manageable in Safari without having to have those tabs active. In a Tab Group, you can easily collect and save related tabs, whether the webpages are being used to help you plan a trip or to work on a project. And in iOS 16, you can share those tabs with colleagues, friends and family, allowing multiple people to contribute links and work together. To share a currently open Tab Group in Safari, tap the Share sheet icon (the square with an arrow pointing out), then simply select a person to share it with. Once you've sent an invite using Messages, you can see who has access to the Tab Group by tapping the user profile icon in the top-right corner of the tab browser interface.

Klipsch's tiny T10 wireless earbuds arrive as a $2,500 'bespoke' model

Klipsch has finally delivered the T10 true wireless earbuds it was supposed to ship in fall 2020... but they've changed a lot in the past two years. The company and Ear Micro have released the T10 Bespoke Ear Computers (yes, really) as a hand-built custom design aimed squarely at luxury buyers who refuse to own the same earbuds as everyone else. You can ask Klipsch to build the charging case using materials like gold, leather (vegan and otherwise) and wood, and the bud frames using pearl or ceramic zirconia. You can ask for special leather motifs, and even have jewelers add precious stones or carvings. The T10 has some technical prowess to match the luxurious exterior, at least. Klipsch touts 96kHz/24-bit audio when using the LDAC codec, and believes the dual Cadence/Tensilica DSPs, class-D amps and Sonion transducers will make the most of your music. Despite the incredibly small bud size, you can expect nine hours of listening per charge as well as active noise cancelation. Klipsch And yes, Klipsch knows it would normally be ridiculous to spend a fortune on earbuds whose batteries rarely last more than a few years. The T10 design is built to be repaired and upgraded with relatively little effort. Provided Klipsch remains committed to support, you could keep using your one-of-a-kind audio indefinitely. You will pay a steep premium, as you might have guessed. Klipsch estimates typical T10 prices between $2,500 and $5,000, and you can easily pay more to add gems and other unique touches. That's a lot more than the $649 the company targeted back in 2020. However, this might make more sense. Klipsch already has the $199 T5 II to court mainstream buyers who would otherwise turn to AirPods or Galaxy Buds , and it's not clear the original T10's promised AI features would have justified the price. The finished product targets a niche but largely unserved group the same upscale audience that wouldn't flinch at a $3,400 Louis Vuitton smartwatch or an electric supercar .

How to Cancel Your Netflix Subscription on iPhone, iPad, and Desktop

Are you done with Netflix? This article explains how to cancel the streaming service on iPhone and iPad as well as on desktop. With living costs on the rise, more and more people are looking for ways to cut costs, and one of the main reasons people have been turning away from Netflix is that the service has increased its prices. In January 2022, Netflix increased the prices for all of its plans: The basic standard definition plan went from $8.99 to $9.99, the Standard HD plan went from $13.99 to $15.49, and the 4K Ultra plan went from $17.99 to $19.99. Recently, Netflix also said that it is working to monetize the 100 million+ households that are currently enjoying, but not directly paying for, Netflix. In other words, password sharing between households could soon become a thing of the past. Whatever your reason for quitting the service, you're not alone. Netflix in the second quarter of 2022 lost 1.3 million subscribers in the United States and Canada. Keep in mind that Netflix is working on a lower-priced ad-supported tier which is set to launch in early 2023, but until then, here are the ways you can cancel the service if you've had enough. How to Cancel Netflix on iPhone and iPad If you signed up to Netflix using your Apple ID through your iPhone or iPad when it was still possible to do so, that's how you'll have to cancel the subscription. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. Tap your Apple ID banner profile at the top of the menu. Tap Subscriptions . Select Netflix in the list that appears. Choose Cancel Subscription , then confirm at the dialog prompt. Note that the cancellation becomes effective at the end of your current billing period. Note that your membership might renew if you don't cancel your subscription more than 24 hours before your renewal date, as per Apple's policy. How to Cancel Netflix on the Web In Safari or another browser, head to Netflix's website on your iOS device or a desktop computer. Sign in, then tap the three-line menu icon in the top-right corner of the webpage and select Account . Scroll down if necessary and select Cancel Membership . If you're on iPad or a desktop browser, the option will appear near the upper left of the browser window. Note when the cancelation will take effect from, then select Finish Cancelation . Netflix says that if a customer chooses to resubscribe within 10 months of quitting the service, their profiles, favorites, preferences, and account details will still be recoverable.

Adonit Neo Pro Stylus Mimics Apple Pencil Features for $44.99

Stylus-maker Adonit has introduced the Neo Pro , the first iPad stylus that can be magnetically stored and wirelessly charged on the side of an iPad, just like the second-generation Apple Pencil . Few existing third-party styluses are able to be magnetically attached to the side of an iPad, and the Adonit Neo Pro appears to be the first to also wirelessly charge on the side of an iPad like the Apple Pencil. Most powered third-party stylyses for the iPad have to be charged via a USB-C port. The Neo Pro costs $44.99, considerably less than the $129 Apple Pencil. While it has similar functionality to the Apple Pencil with features like tilt sensitivity and palm rejection, it does not have pressure sensitivity. When connected via Bluetooth, the Neo Pro can display its battery status in Apple's iPadOS battery widget. The stylus features a replaceable spiral tip, a click-to-turn-on button on the top, and up to nine hours of battery life. The Adonit Neo Pro is compatible with the 11-inch iPad Pro , the third-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro or newer, the fourth-generation iPad Air or newer, and the sixth-generation iPad mini . The stylus is now available to pre-order in Space Gray and Matte Silver.

Airbnb starts testing anti-party tech in the US and Canada

Airbnb is starting to test anti-party technology in the US and Canada. It announced a permanent ban on all parties and events at host properties worldwide back in June . Airbnb brought in such rules on a temporary basis after the COVID-19 pandemic hit to abide by social distancing restrictions. The company began trialing similar tech in Australia last October. Airbnb says it was able to reduce the number of unauthorized parties in areas where it was using the tools by 35 percent. It's now rolling out the system more broadly in that country. The anti-party tools look at several factors to detect potentially high-risk reservations. They consider elements such as how long the prospective guest has had an Airbnb account, how far away the listing is from where they're based and their history of positive reviews. The system will also bear in mind the length of the trip and whether someone is trying to make a booking during the week or over the weekend. It may, for instance, flag a planned stay of one or two nights over a weekend in the same city where the guest lives. Airbnb says that users who are precluded from staying at an entire home because of these measures can still book a hotel room or a private room. The host is more likely to be at the property in the latter case. The company says it's trying to tackle unauthorized parties to the best of its ability. This system builds on tools that had a narrower focus on guests aged under 25, particularly those who wanted to stay nearby and didn't have positive reviews. Airbnb notes that the tools can't entirely prevent parties from taking place at listings. It has a tip line for neighbors to contact staff if they believe a party is taking place at a nearby host property or they have other concerns. We anticipate that this new system will help prevent more bad actors on our platform while having less of a blunt impact on guests who are not trying to throw a party, Airbnb wrote in a blog post. While we are consistently willing to make trade-offs in the interests of building trust, our goal is to make these systems as precise and fair as possible to support our hosts and guests. Looking ahead, the company says it will detail the results of the test in the US and Canada and reveal other measures it plans to take to stamp out unauthorized parties.

Archetype: Rabea is an all-in-one virtual guitar rig thats also a synth

Neural DSP is best known for its high-quality amp models, whether thats its $1,850 Quad Cortex floor modeler or plugins for your DAW. Its latest offering is the 139 (roughly $142) Archetype: Rabea plugin. The Archetype series is a collection of artist collabs where Neural builds out a set of amp sims and effects to capture the essence of that particular musicians sound. While a variety of artists across genres have worked with the company, the Archetype series has definitely trended toward the heavier end of the spectrum, with names like Megadeth, Meshuggah and Gojira getting involved. Rabea Massaad definitely falls into that category with his band Frog Leap , and backing up Stormzy . But Archetype: Rabea adds an interesting new wrinkle to Neural DSPs formula a synth. Before we get to the synth part, lets run through the core features. There are three amp sims in Archetype: Rabea clean, rhythm and lead, which cover everything from bright Fender chimes, to death metal chug, to unadulterated shred. There are around 100 presets included that make dialing in tones simple. Neural takes a very skeuomorphic approach to interface design, and if youve ever used a guitar amp before (which Ill assume you have if youre reading this), youll feel right at home. All three amps sound pretty good right out of the box and its easy to tweak them to your liking. Archetype isnt just a handful of amp sims bundled together, though. You can combine those amps with various different speaker cabinets, simulated different mic placements, and theres a four-band EQ for further fine tuning the tone. The bottom end is quite tight and the distortion satisfying. I dont think anyone is likely to mistake Neurals plugins for a real-deal tube amp. But thats kinda beside the point, as long as it sounds good. The sound straight out of the box is very full and sounds great on its own, but needs heavy EQing to sit right in a mix. Also, the amp sims can get quite noisy, almost like youre standing right in front of a real cranked amp. Thankfully, theres a noise gate builtin make friends with it. The whole point of Archetype is to be a complete guitar rig, so you also get a bunch of effects with each installment, too. Rabea comes with a compressor, octaver, overdrive, fuzz, delay and reverb pedals, as well as pitch shifting and doubling effects. Again, while these cover a wide variety of tones, they really excel at the heavier end of the spectrum, which is where many other digital amp and effects sims can fall flat in my opinion. All of the effects are pretty solid, but the octaver and reverb are easily my favorite. The octaver lets you blend in both an octave below and above what youre playing, and has both a vintage and modern mode. The former is great if youre looking for that dirtier, glitchier old-school vibe. The reverb has a freeze function, with independent pitch control which when combined with the octaver and doubler delivers truly lush pads that will drone on forever. You can even change the pitch while youre playing over it to create progressions. Its a fascinating way to start sketching out ideas for songs, but its not really practical for performing. Neural DSP But what really sets Archetype: Rabea apart is the Overlord Synth. Its a dual oscillator, monophonic, subtractive synth that follows the pitch of your guitar. This is a first for Neural DSP, and the company claims its a world-first, though I couldnt independently confirm that claim. What I can say is that there are pitch-tracking guitar synth pedals and MIDI guitars that can control synths, there are also pitch-tracking tools that you can pair with a softsynth to control it with a guitar, but I wasnt able to find an all-in-one pitch-tracking guitar synth VST. The sound engine itself is nothing too fancy: two oscillators with four waveshape options, a low pass filter with four different modes, a fairly basic arpeggiator, and a pair of envelopes to control the amplitude and filter. You can coax dreamy and delicate plucks out of it, but it really shines as a synth bass machine. Because the options are limited, even someone new to synths should have a fairly easy time coming to grips with Overlord. Of course, the big question is how well it tracks input from your guitar. And Im happy to report that its nearly perfect. Now, its monophonic, so you cant play big synth chords the way you might with a MIDI controller, but it had no trouble keeping up with groove metal riffs and mid-tempo pentatonic solos. The demos on Neurals site even make it sounds like it can handle finger tapping, but my finger tapping skills are basically non-existent. There was rarely a stray note, or odd abrupt cut off. Its easily some of the best pitch-tracking Ive seen in a plugin. There is the occasional artifact when sliding around the neck, but once you adjust your playing style its pretty to minimize them. All sounds in this demo, other than the drums, are created using only a guitar running through Archetype: Rabea. Engadget Archetype: Rabea demo track The real magic starts happening, though, when you combine all these various elements together. You can blend in the synth with your guitar, pitch the oscillators one fifth and one octave below, turn on the doubling effect and create just a massive wall of sound. You can then freeze that using the reverb pedal, retune the synth to play the same note and an octave up, and solo over that drone in equally bombastic style. Archetype: Rabea is basically guitar tone maximalism at its finest. If youre already a fan of Neural DSPs products, Archetype: Rabea is an easy sell. Its a high-quality virtual guitar rig with a truly excellent synth built in. Even if youre primarily interested in the synth side of things, the 139 isnt too bad. Yes, the synth is fairly basic, but you get a handful of effects to process it, and the pitch tracking is top notch. Youre probably gonna pay at least $99 for any decent commercial synth plugin , so an extra $40 to be able to natively control it with your guitar is a small price to pay.

Apple One Included With EE's Revamped 'Full Works' Phone Plan in UK

British carrier EE today announced that it will soon become the world's first carrier to bundle Apple One as a free perk with a phone plan. In a press release spotted by 9to5Mac , EE said Apple One will be included with its newly revamped Full Works plan starting August 31. The plan will include Apple One's individual tier, which normally costs 14.95 per month in the UK and includes access to Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and iCloud+ with 50GB of storage. EE's existing Full Works plan already included Apple Music, Apple TV+, and Apple Arcade individually, so the only addition is the complimentary iCloud storage. More importantly, it sets the stage for other carriers to bundle Apple One around the world. On a standalone basis, Apple One allows customers to subscribe to multiple Apple services through a single plan with unified billing and for less money than subscribing to all of the services individually. More details are available in our Apple One guide .

Apple Silicon Mac Pro Configurations: Everything We Know

Thanks to various reports and the launch of the Mac Studio earlier this year, there is an increasingly clear picture of what to expect from Apple silicon Mac Pro configurations later this year. The Mac Pro is one of the last Intel-based Mac models still on sale and the only remaining Mac product line with no Apple silicon chip options. An all-new model that finally brings Apple silicon to Apple's top-tier Mac for professionals has now been anticipated for over two years. At its Peek Performance event earlier this year, Apple even teased the launch of the Apple silicon Mac Pro , saying hat's for another day. Previously, reports about a smaller Mac Pro model placed somewhere between the Mac mini and the Mac Pro made it difficult to know what to expect from the future of the high-end Mac Pro line, but it is now clear many of these rumors related to the Mac Studio, clarifying what is expected from the next-generation Mac Pro. Multiple reports from Bloomberg 's Mark Gurman about the Apple silicon Mac Pro's chip options and specifications provide a fairly straightforward picture of what to expect from the new flagship Mac. According to Gurman, users will reportedly be able to configure the new Mac Pro with M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme chip options. The device's configurations are likely to look as follows: Mac Pro With M2 Ultra 20-core CPU (16 high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores) Up to a 64-core GPU 32-core Neural Engine 64GB or 128GB of unified memory Mac Pro With M2 Extreme 40-core CPU (32 high-performance cores and eight high-efficiency cores) Up to a 128-core GPU 64-core Neural Engine At least 128GB or 256GB of unified memory At present, the M1 Ultra is Apple's most powerful custom silicon chip available, featuring a 20-core CPU and up to a 64-core GPU, along with a 32-core Neural Engine. Sitting above the Ultra in the chip lineup, the M2 Extreme would presumably surpass these specs to become the top-tier Apple silicon chip for maximum performance. According to these rumors, the M2 Extreme would surpass the top-tier Intel Xeon W CPU option with 28-cores offered in the current Intel-based Mac Pro. The M2 Extreme's known specifications effectively double the capabilities of the M1 Ultra in the Mac Studio, but if it is based on the more advanced 5nm fabrication process behind the current M2 chip, it is likely that there will be a range of other improvements in terms of core technologies, efficiency, and clock speed. The M2 chip delivers an 18 percent faster CPU, a 35 percent more powerful GPU, a 40 percent faster Neural Engine, and 50 percent more memory bandwidth compared to the M1 chip. A similar performance delta between the M1 Ultra and M2 Ultra seems likely. The current Mac Pro is available with up to 1.5TB of memory, a $25,000 configuration option available to $11,999 and $12,999 Mac Pro models with 24- and 28-core CPUs. Since Apple silicon Macs use a shared pool of unified memory rather than the conventional DDR4 ECC memory sticks used in the current Mac Pro, it seems probable that it will be available with considerably less memory. The M1 family of chips follows a clear system for increasing unified memory options, with the M1 offering 8GB or 16GB, the M1 Pro offering 16GB or 32GB, the M1 Max offering 32GB or 64GB, and the M1 Ultra offering 64GB or 128GB. As such, it seems plausible that any new Extreme chip above the Ultra will offer 128GB and 256GB unified memory options. The M2 chip added a 24GB memory option so it is possible that Apple could offer even larger 192GB and 384GB amounts of unified memory with the new Mac Pro. The Mac Pro currently starts at $5,999, with the potential to price it up to over $52,000 in custom configurations. The base model Apple silicon Mac Pro with the M2 Ultra is almost certain to cost more than the high-end Mac Studio with the M1 Ultra, which starts at $3,999. It seems likely that the new base model Mac Pro will continue to start at a price point similar to the current model, but there is no further information about pricing at this time. Beyond its basic specifications, little is currently known about the device's design, ports, and modularity. Apple is expected to introduce the Apple silicon Mac Pro later this year , and it could be followed by a Pro version of the Studio Display with a mini-LED panel and support for ProMotion in early 2023.

A glimpse into the gambling landscape in India

Online gambling is quite popular among Indians. With smartphones having become affordable, everyone has one. Therefore, many people access online sites such as Casinowings . However, the gambling landscape is quite complex. The lack of legal regulations leaves casino enthusiasts with no options other than assessing foreign sites. What is the current situation like? What does the future hold for the Indian gambling market? Let's find out! Regulations Sites like Bettingguru have gained extreme popularity among users. They play their favorite games from the comfort of their own homes at their own pace. However, many wonder whether playing online is regulated in India. The Public Gambling Act of 1976 is adopted by various states in India, meaning that the residents can play. The government regulations classify the games as games of skills and games of luck. However, the gambling regulations are somehow complex. To make things clear for you, we will explain it further. Skill-based games require the player to invest skills in playing. They will need analytical skills and prior experience to play such games. This type of game is allowed. Cricket betting is an excellent example of a skill-based game. You will need to analyze the stats, make predictions, and use your knowledge to make a bet. On the other hand, chance-based games aren't allowed. They rely on pure luck to win. Slot games as an excellent example of games of chance. You don't need any period experience or skills to play a slot game. However, they are approved within Sikkim and Goa. Is online gambling legal in India? The government has issued the Public Gambling Act of1976. A total of four states were accepted, which are Sikkim, Goa, Nagaland, and Daman. This makes online gambling legal in these states. Users are free to access online sites and have some fun. Horse race betting is legal in India. It counts in skill-based games, as bettors need prior knowledge to place a bet. You can bet on horse racing in many states such as Punjab, Kerala, West Bengal, and others. The market Residents in India like to enjoy some of the popular card games. Andar Bahar is a popular choice among residents. However, they do like classic card games such as blackjack and poker. Although slot games enjoy vast popularity worldwide, they aren't that popular in India. Conclusion Since phones aren't a luxury anymore, a huge part of casino users has one. The cheap and fast internet connection services are another major factor in the development of the industry in India. Given the favorable circumstances, the market had tremendous growth . With this, many prominent names in the industry worldwide have invested in the development. The predictions for the future are promising. However, it is unsure whether the government will update the regulations and allow gambling. It's considered that this would inject funds into the domestic economy and open many employment opportunities for Indians.

iPhone 14 Pro Models Likely to See $100 Price Increase, Says Analyst

iPhone 14 Pro models will likely see a $100 price increase compared to iPhone 13 Pro models, according to Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives. iPhone 14 Pro render by Ian Zelbo based on rumored design While the base iPhone will stay at the same price we believe a $100 price increase on the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max is likely in store given component price increases as well as added functionality on this new release, said Ives, in a research note obtained by MacRumors today. Last week, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said iPhone 14 Pro models would have price hikes, suggesting they will be more expensive than iPhone 13 Pro models. Kuo did not reveal exact pricing, but he said that the average selling price of the entire iPhone 14 lineup, including the lower-end models, would increase by about 15% overall. In the U.S., the iPhone 13 Pro starts at $999 and the iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at $1,099. If a $100 price increase proves to be accurate, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would start at $1,099 and $1,199, respectively. Ives said the price increase would be due in part to increased component prices and new features/functionality. iPhone 14 Pro models are rumored to feature a new pill-shaped cutout and hole replacing the notch, a faster A16 chip, faster RAM, an upgraded 48-megapixel rear camera with support for 8K video recording, and an always-on display that shows the time, date, and iOS 16's new Lock Screen widgets and battery percentage icon. It's possible the iPhone 14 Pro will start with 256GB of storage , helping to soften the blow of the price increase, but one analyst believes 128GB is still likely . Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 14 series in September as usual.

Australia's top court rules Google isn't a publisher

Google has prevailed in its long-running battle over potentially defamatory web links. Australia's High Court has ruled Google wasn't the publisher of a link to a 2004 story in The Age that allegedly tarnished state lawyer George Defteros, who represented people implicated in the Melbourne gangland killings and briefly faced charges himself. As The Guardian reports , five of seven court justices found that the search result link merely facilitated access to the story Google didn't play a part in writing or distributing the content. The High Court also rebuffed Defteros' claim that search results encouraged users to visit a story. Someone who found that link was already searching for relevant content, the justices said. Some of the justices said the case might have been different if it had been a sponsored link, but that Google's appeal didn't require an answer on the subject. Defteros sued Google in 2016, accusing the company of defaming him. Google pulled the link in December that year, and lost its initial court fight, but tried to overturn the ruling by arguing that it could have been held liable for the content of any page it linked to it was worried it would have to act as censor for the internet at large. The company didn't succeed with that first appeal, and in 2020 a Victorian supreme court ordered that Defteros receive $40,000 in damages. Google asked the High Court to intervene in January. The decision could a wide-ranging impact on internet firms operating in Australia. They might not have to worry that search queries or other automatically-generated links could get them into legal trouble. A complainant would have to show there was a deliberate attempt to promote an unflattering piece.
