While the overall InSight mission has been granted an extension, the mole has ended its portion of the mission.

Apple Music, Podcast apps might be coming to Microsoft Store

It has been less than two years since Apple retired the venerable iTunes, both the brand and the app. But while Apple itself has already moved on with its separate apps, those on Windows are still living in the past with an old version of iTunes. That, however, may soon be a thing of the past, too, if these rumors of Apple Music and Apple Podcasts coming to Windows have meat to them.

Galaxy Book Flex2 5G is the Galaxy Book Flex 5G, now available in the UK

Samsung doesn't always have the best naming conventions, especially when it suddenly skips a number for no apparent reason. At the virtual IFA 2020 event last year, it announced its Galaxy Book Flex 5G, boasting of a few firsts for any Samsung laptop. That was followed by silence, at least until now. On the heels of its Galaxy S21 event, Samsung is finally making that 2-in-1 convertible available, at least in the UK and under a bumped up Galaxy Book Flex2 5G name.

Despite its heavy use, the Internet portal turned Desktop app hasn't seen much action in terms of design. The latest update doesn't exactly overhaul Battle.net but it does finally let it catch up to its peers.

Spotify Car Thing at the FCC looks very different

Every music and audio provider naturally wants to be anywhere it would be safe to listen. Cars are definitely one of those places, especially compared to watching videos or even looking at notifications. Thanks to automotive infotainment platforms like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, it's almost too easy for these services to become available to drivers and passengers. Spotify, however, might be cooking up something a tad different but its "Car Thing" might end up looking more like a weird abomination than something like a Spotify for Cars.
