SpaceX Inspiration4 launch reaches another space travel milestone

SpaceX Inspiration4 launch reaches another space travel milestone

Elon Musk has always envisioned space travel to be as economical as air travel, though naturally still more expensive. SpaceX's mission is to make that true not just for government-funded missions and research but also for commercial space tourism. The company has already gotten most launches and landings down to a "T," but there are still some goals to be checked off from its list. At least two of those have been completed now that the Inspiration4 mission is underway, transporting four civilians around the Earth for about three days at a record-breaking altitude.

That might not matter much to Android manufacturers who can't use the chip anyway, so Samsung, Xiaomi, and others are fighting in a different arena. At least for Samsung, that might not be an issue if this new information about the upcoming Exynos 2200 with AMD graphics is right on the mark.

Deathloop has a stuttering problem on PC, but a fix is on the way

If you head to the Steam page for Deathloop at the moment, you'll find a user rating that seems to be at odds with the critical reception the game received. Even though the PC version currently has a rating of 88 on Metacritic - nearly as good a rating as any publisher or developer can hope for - the Steam user reviews fall into the "Mixed" category. Apparently, a number of the negative reviews can be blamed on a stuttering problem many PC players are experiencing at the moment.
