Google Chrome’s latest update is vital for anyone who shops online

OnePlus Buds review: amazing price, average earbuds

Can’t decide what to watch on Netflix? New feature solves the issue

Netflix is looking to introduce a “shuffle” feature that will queue-up a random episode of a television show – helping those who can’t decide what to watch to jump straight into their favourite show. The new button works in the same manner as the “shuffle” feature in iTunes and Spotify, which plays an album or playlist in a random jumbled order. With its latest update, it seems Netflix wants to recreate the experience of flicking through terrestrial channels and landing on a random episode of The Simpsons, Friends, Top Gear, or Seinfeld that…

Samsung wants to improve Windows 10 speed and battery life

Samsung is purportedly building its own processors to fuel a new range of Windows 10 devices. These custom-designed chipsets will use the same Exynos branding as the chipsets used in some Galaxy S smartphones, like the Galaxy S20 series sold in the UK. Samsung uses a mixture of its own processors and Qualcomm Snapdragon to power its flagship smartphones depending on the country. Both of these chipsets are based on ARM, which is the same architecture that Apple uses for its own custom-designed silicon. For years, Apple has used its…
