Google Area 120 creates a Game Builder that feels like a game itself

Anyone who has played a video game may have had one or both of two thoughts. Either they think they can do one better or they get inspired to create their own. Unfortunately, many of those ideas remain just that, ideas, because of the high entry to barrier in game development.

2019 iPhone cases will highlight what Apple will try to hide

It seems that square camera bumps are in. At least if you ask Apple and Google. Although Huawei can perhaps be credited/blameed for starting that trend but few probably expected the two biggest tech companies to follow. And even fewer probably expected both Apple and even Google would put the unusual design on the corner. And yet that is exactly what will happen in a few months though Apple is believed to use some magic to make those two to three cameras nearly invisible.

CERN to move away from Microsoft because license fees have skyrocketed

Windows may still be the operating system on desktops and laptops, by choice or not, but Microsoft's biggest profit comes from the wholesale licensing of the OS on enterprise, government, and educational computers. Those, however, are slowly losing ground especially with the latter two categories. That has mostly been because of the increasing costs of Windows licenses. That has caused not only governments but even CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory, to move away from Windows and proprietary software at large.

Galaxy Note 10 coming in late August with slim bezels

The Galaxy Note 10 was at the center of controversy because of some of the changes that Samsung will allegedly be introducing in this year's S Pen phablet. Fortunately for Samsung, it seems that Google has now taken the spotlight with the Pixel 4. It seems that we won't have to wait long to finally see what the Galaxy Note 10 has in store but, at least based on this new leak, it might not be all that bad if super thin bezels are your thing.
