The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is heavier, has a matte finish across all colorways, and a larger camera bump. Both the body and display are protected by the latest Gorilla Glass Victus, and the phone has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. The “Contour Cut” design of the camera feels intentional and looks very dramatic in person.

It looks like PlayStation could be planning to develop and expand its mobile gaming offering, if a recent PlayStation Studios job listing is anything to go by. The job listing, shared on the ResetEra forums (via IGN), is for a new Head of Mobile at PlayStation Studios. According to the job description, Sony Interactive Entertainment is looking for someone based in San Mateo or Los Angeles to “own and develop the mobile games strategy for PlayStation Studios” and be “responsible for building and scaling a team of mobile leaders and will serve as the Head of this new business unit within PlayStation Studios.”Although the listing talks in general terms about the Head of Mobile having to lead “all aspects of the expansion of our game development from consoles and PCs to mobile & Live Services”, it also mentions a particular “focus on successfully adapting PlayStation’s most popular franchises for mobile.”

Soulstorm’s messy start nearly made me give up - I’m glad I didn’t
Technology

“Not again,” I mutter as yet another of my Mudoken followers meets its untimely death at the jaws of a ravenous Fleech. While I could simply choose to forget about this particular overall-wearing, smartmouthed lackey – after all, all the Mudoken followers look the same – I still choose to restart from the checkpoint and make an effort to save him from his unfortunate demise. After all, ‘Raymond’ as I call him, maybe has a Mudoken partner at home, waiting for him to come home after a long day of following around his savior Abe. Yes, it’s worth restarting. I never expected to care for Raymond. In fact, as I started Oddworld: Soulstorm, I played through gritted teeth and tirades of swear words. Rather than choosing to restart at each checkpoint, I grimaced each time I was forced back to another – more time I had to spend trying to get through this clumsy game with its awkward platforming and fiddly controls.

The state of Android Auto in 2021: Test driving Google’s app in the VW ID.4
Technology

Google’s Android Auto started off with a bang in 2014. The app promised that your car’s infotainment system could communicate with your phone, and vice versa. Finally, you could make your car’s display just as powerful as the one in your pocket!However, things didn’t go as smoothly as Google likely anticipated. Manufacturer adoption of Android Auto lagged far behind that of Apple’s own system, known as CarPlay. Even the cars that did have it faced limitations, such as a lack of wireless support and a dated interface. It wouldn’t be until 2019 that Google would finally push a UI overhaul to the system as well as some upgraded features, including wireless connections.Related: 15 best Android Auto apps to get the most out of itNow, things are looking back up for Google. More manufacturers than ever support Android Auto. As the years go on, there won’t be many Android smartphones that don’t work with it wirelessly out-of-the-box, either.

Please stop doing this when you create a new password
Technology

One of the things that often goes hand-in-hand with the countless hacks and data leaks we’ve written about in the past, and which continues to dominate cybersecurity news headlines, is the frequency with which people keep making the same dumb password-related mistakes over and over again.One of the most egregious mistakes that people make — and the reason so many people’s account credentials end up being found in the hands of hackers, thanks to sites like Have I Been Pwned — is the re-use of passwords across multiple accounts. According to a new survey from the UK’s National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), another involves people using their pet’s name as an account password.

The best true crime shows on Netflix
Technology

Not content with turning its entire subscriber base into couch potatoes, Netflix also appears to have transformed the majority of us into armchair detectives. Previously dominated by amateurish re-enactments, bone-dry talking heads and countless zoom-ins of the same photos, the true crime genre has now become the kind of cinematic, highly engrossing TV that starts conversations at the watercooler (or it did pre-Covid, anyway). From wild tales of cult life to a whole host of unsolved mysteries, here’s a look at 10 original series which, rightly or wrongly, have made real-life criminality must-see entertainment. Where else could we start than the genesis of the streaming generation’s true crime fixation? What’s interesting is how much Netflix trusted viewers to commit to the oft-exasperating case of Steven Avery, a man who after serving an 18-year jail term for crimes he didn’t commit, then finds himself convicted of the deadliest.
