  1. Samsung has unveiled its latest monster: 108 megapixel camera module with which it aims to put an end to the camera competition once and for all. Surprisingly to many this module has been jointly developed in collaboration by Samsung and Xiaomi. Module is named Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX and is expected to bring us major improvements to low-light scenarios, something that Samsung cameras have famously underperformed on so far. Mass production is starting now in August and first phones speculated to be using it are suspected to be be Xiaomi Redmi phones, but this is yet to be confirmed as neither Samsung or Xiaomi have yet to reveal any models with this monster of a camera in it. https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-takes-mobile-photography-to-the-next-level-with-industrys-first-108mp-image-sensor-for-smartphones https://www.engadget.com/2019/08/12/samsungs-108-megapixel-mobile-sensor-closes-in-on-mirrorless-ca/
  2. Everyones favorite chinese smart device manufactorer Huawei has announced their new operating system: HongmengOS, also known as HarmonyOS. Modularized, open source operating system developed by them since 2012 aimed to be Android alternative. New operating system will also take off major amount of pressure from Huawei with possible US sanctions effecting them in the future too. Sanctions would not have any effect on using this operating system. According to Huawei HarmonyOS is Cross-platform support includes smartphones, smartwatches, computers and other smart apparel and virtually any iot-devices you could possibly think of. This is very interesting move from Huawei with all the recent accusations on spying - releasing the new operating system as Open Source will do wonders to alleviate any possible concerns and call the "they're spying" accusation bluff quite majorly. https://twitter.com/HuaweiMobile/status/1159730902341234688?s=20 https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-harmonyos-1017511/ https://techcrunch.com/2019/08/09/harmonyos-huawei-release/

    Develop your own chromium based browser as video project. Something completely bonkers, not serious one.

    Tamagotchis are making comeback with Bandai releasing all new fancy "modern" versions now. I would love to see Linus review them in nostalgy-trip video.
  5. Addiction to gaming is now officially a mental health problem. WHO has approved video game addiction as officially recognisable mental health problem as Gaming Disorder under subcategory ICD-11 as diagnosis which is described as follows: "Disorders due to substance use or addictive behaviors" alongside alcoholism, gambling addiction, and, curiously, a section devoted to harmful cannabis use dependence." The addiction itself is classified as follows: 6C51 Gaming Disorder Gaming disorder is characterized by a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behaviour (‘digital gaming’ or ‘video-gaming’), which may be online (i.e., over the internet) or offline, manifested by: impaired control over gaming (e.g., onset, frequency, intensity, duration, termination, context); increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities; and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences. The behaviour pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning. The pattern of gaming behaviour may be continuous or episodic and recurrent. The gaming behaviour and other features are normally evident over a period of at least 12 months in order for a diagnosis to be assigned, although the required duration may be shortened if all diagnostic requirements are met and symptoms are severe.

    Gaming setup powered by human sized hamsterwheel or bicycles hooked up to dynamos. Just think of Linus gaming while several staff members are powering the rig on bicycles or the hamster wheel.
  11. WinRAR bug found in February is being used by malicious parties to spread malware already! One begins to wonder is this just something that affects Pirates in form of Bad Karma and poetic justice... Or are the rest of us gonna get hit too https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/03/nasty-winrar-bug-is-being-actively-exploited-to-install-hard-to-detect-malware/ https://securingtomorrow.mcafee.com/other-blogs/mcafee-labs/attackers-exploiting-winrar-unacev2-dll-vulnerability-cve-2018-20250/

    Thermal Grizzly Carbonaut. You did video of some graphite pads couple years back, would be great continuation.
  14. Samsung has released their new Galaxy A8s which has the camera embedded inside a hole on its screen on front side Initially they're only releasing it in China. It's curious to see what kind of applications we're going to see from other manufactorers in regards of the Front facing camera and getting rid of the notch. Punching hole in the screen seems quite radical, but definitely less noticeable in use than "The Notch" did.
