The COVID-19 pandemic has made it clearer and more evident that the electronic chip segment is one of the most important in the entire technological world. As a result, many manufacturers are currently investing even more in this sector, as a way of guaranteeing stock and long-term production.

In this sense, Samsung will now invest US$356 billion in chips, but also in biotechnology and Artificial Intelligence.

Step by step, functionality by functionality, iPhones are being equipped with the best on the market. Apple doesn't do it just for the sake of it, it has to have quality and, above all, it has to be a balanced resource so the battery doesn't become (again) a problem. One of the news that is said for the next iPhone 14 is the always-on. For this, Apple may introduce a 1 Hz display refresh mode.

Always-on, for those who don't know, is the feature that keeps the screen always with information, as it has existed for a few years on the Apple Watch and already in several Android devices that take advantage of AMOLED screens.

According to Público, cancer deaths rose 20% worldwide in the space of a decade. Therefore, and because the search for a cure has been incessant, this news about the first patient injected with a virus that aims to eliminate the problem is to be welcomed with open arms.

The video game market currently has several options available to the consumer, from the simplest and most affordable models, to the most robust and, of course, also more expensive equipment.

But there is now a new pawn on the scene, and it is the AYN Loki handheld console where the player can choose different models, one with a 12th generation Intel Alder Lake processor, and others with an AMD Ryzen 6000 CPU.

When This War of Mine by 11 Bit Studios was released in 2014 it was a breath of fresh air that came into the world of video games.

One of the main points of interest of This War of Mine was the fact that it is a game about an armed conflict, but whose focus (and all its emotional weight) is solely centered on the role of survivors.

Now after more than 8 years, the Final Cut edition appears and we have already tried it, for Xbox Series X.
