A group of enthusiasts called SUP3R5 has announced the pre-sale of a special edition of the Sony PlayStation 5 for those who love to indulge in nostalgia.

However, almost immediately after the start of accepting orders, more precisely, 18 minutes later, it was announced on the official SUP3R5 page on the Twitter social network that all versions of the consoles were already sold out – both with and without an optical drive. Separately offered DualSense controllers also exploded very quickly – in 20 minutes.

Recall that the unofficial modification of the PlayStation 5 Retro Inspired is made in the style of PS2 and is complemented by a DualSense controller in the same style. The kit was priced at $ 649. A total of 304 kits are planned to be released. The DualSense Retro Inspired controller was separately available for $ 99. Volumes are limited to 500 pieces.

As the creators of the project noted, they are “horrified” by the level of demand – in total, 54 thousand applications were submitted from users. Yes, this is a couple of orders of magnitude more than the planned volume of supplies. The possibility of issuing additional batches has not yet been announced.

Deliveries are scheduled to begin in late spring 2021. The manufacturer’s warranty must continue for such a console. But for the controller, the modification will invalidate the warranty.

The One UI 5.0 skin based on Android 13 is supported by many Samsung smartphones, but the Galaxy S9 and Note9 are not on this list.

The mobile developer community XDA Developers reported that Android 13 and One UI 5.0 are now available thanks to the unofficial Noble ROM 3.0 ported to the Galaxy S9, S9+ and Note9. Developer AlexisXDA used the Android 13 firmware for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note10 Lite to create a version suitable for 2018 flagships.

Noble ROM 3.0 is currently only available for Galaxy S9, S9+ and Note9 versions based on Exynos 9810.

Of course, you can use such firmware only at your own peril and risk, being well aware of what you are doing and what to do if something goes wrong.

Bergamo will be released in the current half of the year, that is, in the next few months. AMD does not yet provide more accurate data. Recall that these CPUs will have the same SP5 performance as Genoa, but the configuration will include only Zen 4C cores instead of full-fledged Zen 4. AMD has not previously said much about Zen 4C, but it is known for sure that these are not small cores, like in Intel, and the core of the same architecture, but with a number of changes.

Integrating ChatGPT into Teams will speed up translation from language to language, which will improve productivity and user experience. Premium also announced end-to-end encryption of audio and video calls, and the application itself will be available as part of the Microsoft Office 365 package or separately.

That being said, while most of the smart debriefing features are available today, Microsoft specifies that some of them will not appear until the second quarter of 2023. And some features will only be in the premium version – for example, subtitles with text translation, increased security, and so on. Microsoft Teams Premium will also enable webinars so companies can launch events with registration waitlists, customizable start and end times.

Microsoft launched a 30-day trial of Teams Premium in December 2022 in Early Access. So far, the price is $7 per month until June 30th. Then the cost will rise to $10 per month.
