Roku has gotten a jump on the holiday shopping season, announcing a range of updates to its streaming device portfolio in addition to a new version of its Roku operation system.

The updates include a smaller and more power-efficient Roku Express player, which sells for $29, as well as a new version of its $99 Roku Ultra with customizable shortcuts that operates as a set-top box. The company’s lineup of products for the fall, which Roku Vice President Mark Ely says offers “something for everyone,” also includes five additional Roku streaming players rounding out the lineup in the US that will be available in a few weeks.

A huge list of Samsung Galaxy phones set to be updated to Android 10 just leaked

%name A huge list of Samsung Galaxy phones set to be updated to Android 10 just leaked by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

A leak earlier this week claimed that Samsung will soon release Android 10 betas for its 2019 flagships, including the Galaxy S10 series and the Note 10 series. That’s hardly surprising, considering that Samsung usually updates its latest flagships to Google’s most recent major Android version. If the rumor is correct, then the Android 10 update for the S10 and Note 10 models might drop a lot sooner than anticipated, maybe as soon as this winter. But a new leak gives us even better news: Samsung is apparently looking to update several other Android phones, although it’s unclear exactly when these devices will get Android 10.

NASA couldn’t find India’s crashed Moon lander, and hope is fading fast

%name NASA couldn’t find India’s crashed Moon lander, and hope is fading fast by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

It’s now been nearly two full weeks since India’s lunar lander, Chandrayaan-2, went quiet moments before what was supposed to be a soft landing on the Moon. Rather than gracefully gliding to a halt, the spacecraft crashed, and its handlers back on Earth haven’t been able to establish contact since.

Last week, NASA said it would do its best to help by targeting the suspected crash site with its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. It was thought that if the LRO could capture a clear image of the downed spacecraft it might provide some additional information and help the India Space Research Organization decide how to proceed. Unfortunately, the LRO’s powerful camera just couldn’t spot the lander, and hope of salvaging the mission is fading rapidly.

iOS 13.1 release date moved up from September 30th to September 24th

%name iOS 13.1 release date moved up from September 30th to September 24th by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

On the same day that iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 were shipped to the public, Apple confirmed that its next major software release — iOS 13.1 — is coming even sooner than expected. At its keynote last week, Apple announced that iOS 13 would launch on September 19th, to be quickly followed by iOS 13.1 on September 30th.

Apparently, that eleven-day wait was too long, as Apple revealed today that the release of iOS 13.1 has been pushed up to Tuesday, September 24th. From anecdotal evidence among our staff and from reading about the experiences of dozens of iOS 13 beta users over the past several months, it’s clear why Apple started pushing out iOS 13.1 betas in the middle of the iOS 13 beta program. Basically, iOS 13 is a bit of a mess.

After a string of beta releases, iOS 13 is finally here and ready for download. The latest update to the software that powers Apple’s line of iOS devices is particularly intriguing given that last year’s iOS 12 release wasn’t heavy on forward-facing features as Apple opted to focus on improving system performance and reliability.

With iOS 13, Apple is back at it with a number of brand new features that should drastically improve the overall user experience for iPhone and users alike. And seeing as it’s been a while since Apple first introduced iOS 13 at WWDC, we’ve compiled a list of the best features Apple managed to pack into iOS 13.
