The next Samsung smartphone to receive the beta version of the “approaching perfection” One UI 4.0 shell may be the Galaxy Z Fold3. At least the source says that in the near future, Chinese users of this model will be able to try out the shell.

Moreover, we are talking about the Galaxy Z Fold3, and not about its Chinese counterpart W22 5G. Given Samsung’s past scenarios, users from other countries will be able to join the beta shortly after China. Recall that a stable version of the shell, at least for devices of the Galaxy S21 line, may come out in December. Insider Ice Universe previously said that the shell is approaching perfection. Actually, he also shared information about the Chinese beta test. Ice Universe very often shares information about future innovations and announcements from Samsung and other companies. …

GTA fans are angry. The donated classic parts turned out to be “unplayable” with modern versions of Windows

Published

on

As it turned out, the classic games Grand Theft Auto III, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas are “unplayable” due to the lack of updates that allow playback on modern equipment.

Recall, recognizing the failed launch and removing the remaster of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition from its platform, Rockstar promised to release updates to improve the performance and graphics of the collection. In addition, the classic versions of Grand Theft Auto were gifted to all players who purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for PC. Buyers of console versions are not eligible for classic parts. This promotion will continue until July 1 of next year.

According to popular blogger Ben Turpin, free classic GTA games are “unplayable” on modern Windows. He wrote that these PC versions have not been updated since their initial releases in the early 2000s, and players cannot download mods to improve them due to software limitations.

Specifically, users are unable to install the Silent Patch and RE3 mods, which enhance GTA III and Vice City, add a rotating camera, support for Xbox controllers on PC, and reduce load times between game locations to zero.

It is currently unknown if the developers will update the legacy PC ports for the three original games in the future.

US regulator unhappy that Tesla allows drivers to play games built into the car while driving

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), expressing concern over driver distraction accidents, said it is in discussions with Tesla to update its electric vehicle software that allows users to play video games on a touchscreen mounted in front of the dashboard.

Tesla has added the games to a software update that was downloaded to most EVs this summer.

“Distraction accidents are a cause for concern, especially in vehicles equipped with many convenient technologies such as entertainment screens. We are aware of the driver’s problems and are discussing this feature with the manufacturer, ”the source quoted the NHTSA statement.

NHTSA has reported that driver distraction is the cause of a significant number of road deaths in the United States.

By adding games, Tesla warned users that “driving while playing is for passengers only.” However, the driver can play by simply pressing a button to pretend that the passenger is about to play.

Gartner predicts that the average price of a new car in the US and Germany will exceed $ 50,000 by 2025

According to Gartner, by 2025, chip shortages and trends such as electric traction and self-driving will force half of automotive OEMs to develop their own chips. This will give them control over product development plans and the supply chain.

“The automotive semiconductor supply chain is complex,” said Gaurav Gupta, vice president of research at Gartner. “In most cases, chip makers have traditionally been third-tier or even fourth-tier suppliers to carmakers, so it usually takes time for them to adapt to changing demand from the automotive market. The lack of transparency in the supply chain has heightened the desire of car OEMs to have more control over semiconductor supply. “

Analysts point out that the current shortage of microcircuits is mainly related to products made with relatively old technology using 200mm wafers, and this makes it difficult to expand production capacity.

Manufacturers are expected to move to the OEM-Foundry-Direct model of in-house chip development. It is not unique to the automotive industry and will become more widespread as the semiconductor market changes. It’s about contract manufacturers providing access to advanced manufacturing processes and cutting-edge intellectual property. These measures facilitate the development of microcircuits.

Gartner also predicts that the average new car sales price in the US and Germany will exceed $ 50,000 by 2025. This will lead to an increase in the volume of repair and modernization of old cars. Analysts expect that the market for new cars will not only not increase, but even contract in the face of rising prices.

“This price increase is likely to reduce overall vehicle sales and increase the market for parts and upgrades as people strive to extend the life of existing vehicles,” said Mike Ramsey, vice president of research at Gartner.
