ASUS Zen AiO 27 opens its base, gets versatile

Normally I'd never say an all-in-one machine was "versatile" in basically any respect - they're supposed to be made to be easy to use, primarily. The ASUS Zen AiO seems to be something different. I've not yet gotten my hands on one, so I'm not certain how well it lives up to its claims, but it would appear that it's designed to look nice at the same time as it offers easy access to its innards - that's pretty rare.

Samsung mid-range phones to get wireless charging too

Just after launching the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh made a promise that is both puzzling yet also daring.

Now it seems Samsung will also be adding an existing feature to its mid-range in the form of wireless charging for Galaxy A and even Galaxy J phones.

Huawei has been setting up the stage for its Huawei Mate 20 announcement next month by taking shots at Samsung and Apple.

Tesla wireless phone charger launched and pulled on the same day

Just as its CEO couldn’t make up his mide about taking the company private or not, Tesla seems to also be undecided whether to launch its own Qi wireless charger for smartphones or not. It’s no hoax, unless it was intended to be a red herring. Tesla did put up such a Qi-compatible charging accessory on its online store only to quickly pull it out just as silently as it “launched” it. And, perhaps, that might be for the best after all.
