Production of the new Xbox Series X has not yet fallen victim to the corona virus. That while many factories in Asia were closed for a long time.

That says Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in an interview with CNBC. At the moment, the game console is scheduled for sale around the end of 2020, presumably just before the holidays.

“The production chains are starting up again,” said the CEO. “That is not a problem for us.” The recent mass production of home work kits would prove, according to Nadella, that Microsoft has its production projects in order.

Nevertheless, the new Xbox can suffer from the corona virus, Nadella said. If the United States and countries in Europe suffer from a long lockdown period, this will probably also affect the economy. This could result in far fewer people being able to afford a new Xbox this year.

Faster and more beautiful
The new Xbox Series X is a more powerful game console that can load games much faster. With the help of ray tracing, games also contain hyper-realistic reflections. In recent months, Microsoft has spotted all the console innovations, including the tower-like design.

In the meantime, Sony is working on a competitor. The PlayStation 5 should also be released around the end of 2020.

Apple is expected to reopen its physical stores in the first half of April. The buildings were previously locked due to the corona virus.

Officially, the tech giant has not yet confirmed this, but retail boss Deirdre O’Brien has discussed the plans internally. A staff memo came to 9to5Mac after a leak.

The tech giant recently reopened its stores in China, where the number of infections has fallen sharply after a lockdown period. Now the company would consider similar steps in other countries.

“We’re going to reopen all our retail locations outside of China,” O’Brien promises. “We expect some locations to reopen in the first half of April.”

The question remains which stores will open first and where to wait a little longer. According to the top woman, this depends on the situation in certain areas. In some countries, shops simply cannot open yet, because everything is completely locked.

The Netherlands
Many shops are still open in the Netherlands. Hospitality, hairdressers and casinos are obliged to close their doors, but many other locations must take measures at most here. Some chains, however, err on the side of caution. At IKEA, for example, you can only pick up orders.

Apple could open its stores in our country again, but the question is whether the tech company will consider this wise in our country in April. O’Brien promises that more information will be shared once specific opening days for the first stores are determined.

Apple’s first AR glasses will be released in 2022 “ Apple may launch its first AR glasses in two years. These glasses combine augmented reality with virtual reality.

Apple is expected to release the first version of its AR glasses in 2022. That contrasts sources against the Taiwanese newspaper DigiTimes, which has connections with Apple suppliers.

In 2022, Apple would release glasses that work with both virtual reality and augmented reality. With VR you immerse yourself in a complete virtual world, while with the AR you add digital elements to the real world.

In 2023, Apple will probably come with glasses that are made purely for augmented reality. Those glasses are likely to get a lot smaller, so users can wear the product all day long.

Officially, Apple has not yet released anything about AR glasses. Apple CEO Tim Cook has already stated several times that he is very enthusiastic about AR. In 2017, he said he expects AR to ‘become as important’ as the smartphone.

With the latest update for iPadOS, it is possible to use a trackpad, turning an iPad into a laptop.

Apple has released new software updates for all of its devices. Most notable this time is the update for iPadOS. Version 13.4 adds support for trackpads. This means that a cursor appears on the screen and the iPad can be used as a laptop.

According to Apple, this cursor cannot be compared to cursors on laptops. The iPad pointer should be more aware of the apps being used.

Magic Keyboard
Apple unveiled a new Magic Keyboard last week specifically for this feature. This keyboard has a trackpad and can be connected to the older model in addition to the new iPad Pro. Logitech has unveiled a Combo Touch keyboard with trackpad that works with other iPads.

Also new to the iPadOS and iOS updates are more Memoji stickers and the ability to share folders in iCloud. With watchOS 6.2, it is now possible to make in-app purchases without an iPhone. The latest update for macOS Catalina, version 10.15.4, extends the Screen Time capabilities to limit the use of communication apps.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has bought 1,255 medical fans. He will give them away for free to organizations that need them to fight the corona virus.

Musk reports this on his Twitter account. Medical fans are of great importance in the treatment of seriously ill corona patients.

“China had a surplus, so we bought 1,255 fans made by ResMed, Philips and Medtronic.” All models purchased would be approved by the US medical watchdog.

After the purchase last Friday, all copies were shipped to Los Angeles via airmail. “Whoever wants a free fan should let us know,” said the millionaire. Earlier, Musk donated 50,000 masks in Los Angeles. In addition, another 250,000 are said to be ready to ship to hospitals.

Earlier, Musk was still quite skeptical about the corona virus. An American Tesla factory closed only after protests, with Musk saying the consequences of the panic will be greater than those of the virus itself.

Millions of mouth masks
Large tech companies are increasingly fighting the corona virus. It was recently revealed that Apple had donated millions of face masks to hospitals in the United States and Europe.

Chinese Alibaba founder Jack Ma also recently donated 1 million masks to American hospitals. In addition, he also gave away 500,000 test kits to identify the disease.

Google hopes to attract more indie games to the streaming platform Stadia, by making the small game makers a bit easier.

The range of games on streaming service Stadia is limited, but Google hopes to offer more variety by motivating small studios to also bring their games to Stadia.

With Stadia Maker, experienced and independent game makers get money and extra hardware to create their projects. In addition, Google is partnering with game engine Unity, which will support game makers with technical assistance.

This news was revealed at the annual Games Developer Summit. This year, this event will take place virtually in connection with concerns about the corona virus.

The largest model of the iPhone 12 would have a stabilized camera sensor, so that all lenses can be stabilized.

That says the usually reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, reports MacRumors. The new iPhone would use sensor stabilization, the so-called sensor shift. The entire sensor is stabilized, instead of the lens, as is the case with current iPhones.

The result is the same: If the iPhone is not held steady while taking a photo or video, the lens or sensor corrects that. That prevents blurry images. The advantage of the new method is that it works regardless of the lens. The image stabilization of the current iPhone 11 Pro models does work with the primary lens and telephoto lens, but not with the ultra-wide angle lens. This would be the case with the iPhone 12.

However, the sensor stabilization would only be in the largest variant of the iPhone 12. That model would get a 6.7 inch screen, in addition, Apple would release iPhones with a 5.4 and 6.1 inch screen. In the past, new camera techniques were also first introduced only in the largest iPhone. For example, the iPhone 7 Plus was the first with a double lens on the back.

Periscopic zoom lens
According to Kuo, the iPhones of 2021 would all or almost all be equipped with sensor stabilization. The first iPhone with a periscopic zoom lens will follow in 2022. Such a lens is already used by Huawei and Samsung, among others.

Such a zoom lens then protrudes from the phone, but runs parallel to the back. Mirrors shine the light through the lens onto the sensor. The iPhone 12 is expected in September.

There are some things you didn’t know you missed in your life. A good example of this is a new video from Immersion VFX, in which the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars franchises meet!

In the video we see how the famous society from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring still has to compete against orcs in the well-known Mines of Moria scene, but with lightsabers instead of swords. And that’s surprisingly well done. Even the arrows that are shot have a glowing lightsaber point!

Not everyone will be equally charmed by a video like this. A well-known scene like the Mines of Moria is almost perfect for the fans and no lightsaber can change that. As an innocent experiment, it is of course super fun to see what certain films would look like with the most famous weapons in film history. You can watch the video below!

Huawei has announced its own digital assistant for the European market under the name Celia. The assistant speaks English, French and Spanish and is standard on the P40 smartphones that the manufacturer will release next month.

Celia may include voice commands for things like operating system functions or performing searches, the announcement said. In addition, there is a possibility to start a translation function, where conversation partners can speak in different languages ​​and the software translates the speech.

New Huawei smartphones no longer have the Google Assistant on board, the digital assistant of the search giant. Huawei’s P40 phones will not be able to use Google services due to the US government’s continued trade ban. Cortana from Microsoft and Alexa from Amazon would probably run on the phones.

Celia redirects users to the Huawei browser that comes standard on the phone during searches. Huawei plans to support more languages ​​in the future, but when that will happen is not yet clear. Huawei announced Celia at the presentation of the P40 smartphones on Thursday. Celia is the international version of the Huaweis Chinese-language assistant Xiaoyi. It has been known for a year and a half that the manufacturer wanted to release Xiaoyi internationally.
