👋 Welcome to Thursday! That’s really all I have to say on the matter.
There are probably more than two types of Switch players, but these are the two I know:
Back to the new Switch Lite. Numerous publications had the chance to go hands-on, and here’s what you get.
Yet it’s no longer a Switch:
What’s not to like?
🕵️♂️ Big new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 render leak ahead of August 7 reveal (Android Authority).
🔥 Google Prime Day: Pixel 3 and 3 XL will be heavily discounted on Prime Day, gift card with 3a XL (AA).
