Galaxy Note 9: Real photos, display glass cracks

Today we're having a peek at a couple of photos of the Galaxy Note 9 in some rough condition. Below you'll find the pair of images, both looking a lot like the Galaxy Note 8 (pictured first in this article held in-hand). That's to be expected, as we've seen enough pre-release renders and schematics to choke a giraffe. What's interesting here are the details that normally wouldn't matter - like the crack in the frontside glass.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is coming to Nintendo Switch

Earlier this year, Ubisoft brought South Park: The Fractured But Whole to the Nintendo Switch. The game's announcement came as something of a surprise, as it was made with no plan to bring the game's predecessor, South Park: The Stick of Truth, to the Switch as well. Ubisoft seems poised to fix that oversight, announcing a Switch version of The Stick of Truth in a roundabout fashion.

Essential’s $200 camera now costs $19

Essential put its 4K 360 camera up for sale overnight on a massive discount - as if they were having a fire sale. OH MY GOD IT'S A FIRE... sale, if you know what I mean.

Mario Tennis Aces update addresses the tyranny of Bowser Jr

Mario Tennis Aces update addresses the tyranny of Bowser Jr

Bowser Jr. is a character with very few redeeming qualities, both specifically in Mario Tennis Aces and across the broader Mario library. On the court, he's seen by the player base as an overpowered character who is a little too good at everything, and in other Mario games, he's a whiny brat who only seems to be concerned with causing trouble. The little punk is kind of cute though, which is about the only positive thing you can say about him.

Instagram may soon let public accounts remove followers

As it stands, those of us with public Instagram profiles don't really have a way to quietly rid ourselves of annoying followers. They can be blocked, of course, but when you do this, they aren't able to access your profile at all, leading them to quickly find out they've been blocked and potentially confront you about it. You can also set your profile to private, but plenty of users would prefer to avoid doing that just to stop harassment from a few unsavory people.

EU slaps Google with $5 billion fine, says Android violated antitrust laws

Google has drawn the ire of the European Union once more, earning itself a massive €4,342,865,000 fine ($5.05 billion) for what the EU views as antitrust violations.

Android’s best launcher just jumped the shark

This week the folks behind Apex Launcher just completely lost their minds. Or they completely lost their minds if you ask their many thousands of users, many of whom just dropped majorly negative reviews on their app on the Google Play app store. This isn't entirely without precedent, but it's a good time for a reminder. When you update your Android launcher, you're going to want to be careful not do erase user settings in the process.

The 2018 Range Rover Supercharged LWB is SUV royalty

The 2018 Range Rover LWB isn’t bulletproof, but you certainly feel that way from behind the wheel. LWB here stands for Long Wheelbase, and means more length added to what’s already the largest model in Range Rover’s line-up.
