Galaxy Fold pre-orders canceled at Best Buy, but there’s a silver lining [Update]

Toward the end of April, Samsung made the decision to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold after it became clear that the device had some design flaws that made it easy to damage the phone's delicate display.

Best Buy is now handing out PlayStation Classics as free bonus items

At this point, it's probably safe to say that PlayStation Classic has flopped. The idea behind it was solid enough, as there's definitely a nostalgia-fueled demand for retro consoles like this, but when the PlayStation Classic released, it became clear that Sony's execution was at least a little off.

Not only were they terribly late to the game, they were also considered too expensive for what little they offered. Since then, Apple has updated the HomePod with additional features that could at least make that $350 price tag worth your while. Now it is offering an even cheaper option for those who don’t mind purchasing refurbished products.
