Asus is preparing a tablet that is quite unusual and unique in a number of parameters. The model is called ROG Flow Z13 and it is a Windows gaming tablet.
On the teaser image, you can see the inscription stating that we have the most productive gaming tablet in front of us.
But everything is not so simple here. Apparently, the tablet will have a connector for connecting an external ROG XG Mobile video card. Last year, Asus released the very thin and light ROG Flow X13 laptop with this connector. XG Mobile, in turn, was a mobile GeForce RTX 3080 in a small separate case.
In the case of a tablet, it is simply impossible to install any productive 3D card inside, but such a solution will really allow positioning the device as a gaming one. However, in the case of a laptop, the XG Mobile module was sold separately, so the situation may be the same with a tablet. And without an external video card, the gaming capabilities of the new product will be much easier.
Presumably, the ROG Flow Z13 will receive a new Ryzen 6000 APU with a powerful iGPU, but of course, this cannot be compared with a full-fledged video card. The announcement is expected on January 4.
AppStore Blocked Coinbase Wallet App Update
Bitcoin exchange Coinbase has disabled the ability to send NFTs in its Coinbase Wallet iOS app following Apple’s demand for a 30% gas fee.
You might have noticed you can’t send NFTs on Coinbase Wallet iOS anymore. This is because Apple blocked our last app release until we disabled the feature. ????

The developers of Coinbase Wallet have stated that a new version of their application will not be released until they agree to pay 30% transaction fees through the Apple payment system.
“Apple claims that the gas required to send NFTs must be paid through their In-App Purchase system so they can receive 30% [комиссии] from the commission,” wrote Coinbase.
Coinbase representatives tried to convey to Apple that this is technically impossible, since such operations take place on the basis of the blockchain, the technology of which is not supported by the App Store payment system.
“The biggest impact of this change is on iPhone users who own NFTs. […] Apple just made it much more difficult to transfer them to other wallets and give them to friends or family,” the statement said.
Coinbase admitted that this was a mistake on Apple’s part and called for negotiations.
MetaMask co-founder and former Apple employee Dan Finley has criticized the tech giant for “abusing its monopoly.” Moreover, he stated that his company is ready to abandon the Apple ecosystem if the AppStore does not change its mind.
Samsung once again showed everyone how it should be. The company updated Android for the very budget Galaxy A01 from 2019
Samsung continues to show other market players how to update smartphones. This time, the cheapest smartphone of the company, which was released three years ago, received a new version of Android.
We are talking about the Galaxy A01 model, based on Snapdragon 439 and released with Android 10. The novelty, however, did not receive Android 13, but only Android 12 with the One UI 4.1 shell, but for such a smartphone this is still a very significant update. Usually manufacturers first of all stop supporting the most budget devices.
Interestingly, the Galaxy A01 owners in Uzbekistan were the first to receive the update.
Statcounter: Windows 10 market share dropped below 70% for the first time, and Windows 7 still doesn’t give up
The market share of Windows 10 dropped below the 70% mark for the first time, according to the updated Statcounter report for November. Over the past month, the share of Windows 10 has decreased by 1.49%. It was logical to think that the share of Windows 11 would also increase by the same amount, but this is not so.
The share of Windows 11 in November really increased, but only by 0.67% – up to 16.12%. Where did the rest go? Incremental Windows 7! The well-deserved Microsoft OS keeps the fighting spirit and does not give up: in November, its share increased by 0.62% – up to 10.24%.
The shares of Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 are 2.54% and 0.79%, respectively. As for Windows XP, which ended support 8 years ago, it now has 0.4% of the market.
