Vivo’s new cell phone is the first to use the super-powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

If you’re looking for a new phone and your focus is on power, then the recently announced Vivo X90 Pro Plus might be the handset for you, as it’s the first phone to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

This flagship chipset is expected to power many of 2023’s flagship Android phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S23 and OnePlus 11, but Vivo seems to have gotten there first.

Apple TV Plus becomes more like Netflix – and that makes it that much more valuable

Apple TV Plus has quietly launched an expansion of its film library in the United States, with the streaming service adding for the first time a number of licensed films that are not owned by the company.

In what appears to be an experimental move, the service is currently offering a number of old movies to watch for free to subscribers, including huge hits like Anchorman along with the entire Hunger Games series.

AMD RDNA 3 Custom Graphics Cards Could Follow In Nvidia’s Expensive Footsteps

Custom RX 7000 graphics cards from third-party card makers are set to release later than reference cards and can be quite expensive to boot, if the latest in the GPU vine is to be believed.

VideoCardz (opens in new tab) reports that the Board Channels forum (in China) claims that the only RX 7900 XT and 7900 XTX graphics cards to initially emerge on AMD’s launch day (Dec. 13) will be reference cards.

Graphics card sales plummet – but there are good reasons why

Graphics card sales are in a big slump, at least following the latest numbers from an analytics firm that regularly tracks the world of GPUs.

The headline statistics for the third quarter of 2022 from Jon Peddie Research (opens in new tab) (JPR) provide a pretty miserable preview, with sales of both integrated (in processors) and discrete (standalone) GPUs falling to 75.5 million units. This represents a 25.1% drop compared to the same quarter a year ago (and is a 10.5% drop when compared to the previous quarter of this year, Q2 2022).

Honor Magic Vs release date, price, specs and features

The Honor Magic Vs is the successor to the Honor Magic V foldable phone and looks set to give the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 a real run for its money.

The phone was revealed for China, so we know all the specs and features on offer, and the company has confirmed that it will be sold more widely from early 2023 onwards.

Best blender 2022: blenders from KitchenAid, Ninja and more

Editor’s Note: November 2022

This month we’ve added in a portable blender from ShakeSphere. It’s a great option if you’re always on the go and need a quick smoothie whilst you’re out the house.

With the talk of Black Friday deals starting to become a reality we’re going to start to see some deals spring up. Although blenders might not be the most discounted small appliances during big sale events, it’s still worth checking out KitchenAid mixer Black Friday deals (opens in new tab), and the like, to save some money where you can.

By having the best blender (somewhere) in the kitchen, you are just one step away from making a super delicious soup or nutrition-packed smoothie. They are a quick and relatively easy way to eat healthily on a budget – you’ll just need to wash and chop the ingredients before enjoying.

These versatile counter-top appliances can also be transformed into the best juicers or best food processors, and so much more, so you won’t be limited to just blending and there won’t be the need to go out and buy yet more products to get your fill either. Whilst you may not have much space in the kitchen to home a blender, it would be worth looking out for more portable options which are battery-powered. Although these are single-serve, it solves a problem and means that you don’t go without.

Netflix’s Kaleidoscope is an ambitious TV experiment that will thrill fans by storm

Netflix loves a good experience – and the streaming giant’s upcoming TV test is unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Titled Kaleidoscope, Netflix’s upcoming show is being billed as a crime anthology series – but with a compelling twist. The series, which premieres January 1, 2023, is presented in a non-linear format, with viewers watching the eight episodes of Kaleidoscope in a different order than their family and friends. No two viewing experiences will ever be the same, creating an air of mystery around the theft and leading to countless watercooler-style arguments between you and your fellow Netflix subscribers.

New PS5 games: All upcoming PlayStation 5 game releases

There are so many new PS5 games on the horizon, making it feel like the new console is starting to come into its own. Games like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Final Fantasy 16 and Street Fighter 6 are coming in 2023, adding to the already impressive lineup available on PS5.

New PS5 games, whether exclusive or not, likely won’t be immediately discounted in the Black Friday 2022 period, but we’ve been surprised in this regard before. Still, it’s an excellent time of year to browse Black Friday PS5 deals and stock up on the best PS5 games that have been available the longest.

Our favorite home gadget of the year is back in stock – and at an incredible price

We voted the Ninja Foodi Dual Zone Air Fryer Home Device of the Year at the 2022 Choice Awards sponsored by Sky Broadband. We think it’s the best fryer you can buy, as do many others – and that means it’s been rarer than chicken’s teeth these past few weeks. The smaller version is completely sold out in the UK and sells for silly money on eBay, but if you’re quick you can pick up the 9.6L model for far less than the Ninja scalpers are charging for the smaller one.

It’s worth noting that this air fryer has different names in different markets: it’s Ninja Foodi Max Dual Zone Air Fryer AF400UK in the UK and Ninja Foodi 6-in-1 10-quart Air Fryer with DualZone Technology (DZ401) in the US.

Why is Ninja selling out so quickly?
