Android 12 might debut on October 4th

Android 12 has taken longer to bake than many of its predecessors, but the end might finally be in sight. XDA editor-in-chief Mishaal Rahman claims Google plans to release the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) version of Android 12 on October 4th. As the company often releases polished public releases at the same time as AOSP, that hints Pixel owners may get their upgrade starting that day.

If the timing holds up, this also sets expectations for the Pixel 6 launch. Google can’t really ship its new range-topping phones without Android 12, so it’s unlikely to formally debut the Pixel

Cross-gen software is still Sony’s Achilles’ Heel | Opinion

As the launches of Sony and Microsoft’s new consoles approached last year, it was easy to feel a bit cynical about the extent to which Microsoft was focusing on backwards compatibility and on the idea of Xbox as an ongoing, evolving platform rather than a series of sharply divided hardware generations. We all knew, after all, where Microsoft’s big weakness lay.

Having failed to effectively manage and invest in its first-party studios for many years, the company was racing to cobble together a development and publishing operation that could

Until 2023? Parts Shortage Will Keep Auto Prices Sky-High | Ohio News

By TOM KRISHER, AP Auto Writer

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Back in the spring, a shortage of computer chips that had sent auto prices soaring appeared, finally, to be easing. Some relief for consumers seemed to be in sight.

That hope has now dimmed. A surge in COVID-19 cases from the delta variant in several Asian countries that are the main producers of auto-grade chips is worsening the supply shortage. It is further delaying a return to normal auto production and keeping the supply of vehicles artificially low.

And that means, analysts say, that record-high consumer prices for vehicles —

INNO3D Launches iChill Black RTX 3080, 3080 Ti Graphics Cards

INNO3D today extended its Nvidia RTX line-up with the addition of two solutions packed to the gills with built-in watercoooling. The INNO3D RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti iChill Black have been built on a hybrid cooling philosophy, which pairs a watercooling block that keeps the GA102 chips inside these high-performance graphics cards cool. A single 90mm fan is in charge of keeping the high-wattage GDDR6X memory subsystem under temperature control. A dual-heatpipe system is responsible for moving the heat produced from the memory chips through to the heatsink array. Stylistically, the cards are painted in an unsurprising black throughout
