Disney finished filming its live-action Mulan remake half a year ago but hasn’t had the chance to schedule a safe theatrical release. Now, Disney is giving up on the silver screen in favor of at-home streaming. Mulan comes to Disney+ on September 4th, but you have to pay an extra $30 to unlock it on your account.
If you like your racing games serious, you know that the only “real” way to play is with a wheel. Those who prefer to simulate rather than merely play can pour thousands of dollars into an advanced gaming setup, and Logitech is here for them, with the $400 G923 Racing Wheel. It’s up for pre-order now and shipping later in August.
Samsung is pushing Android tablets further than ever with its 11-inch Galaxy Tab S7 and 12.4-inch Galaxy Tab S7+. The new devices, which cost $650 and $850 respectively, are the first tablets with smooth 120 Hz displays and 5G compatibility. They also come with a free S Pen stylus—yay!
The original Galaxy Fold is an aspirational device at best. The idea of a phone that becomes a tablet is tantalizing, but the hardware just wasn’t up to snuff. Between failed review units and a tiny external display, it was the flagship you should skip. Now the Galaxy Z Fold fold two solves some of those problems.
After multiple rumors and weeks of leaks, Samsung just unveiled a pair of its newest accessories at today’s Galaxy Unpacked event. We’re talking, of course, about the Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Buds Live. Let’s start with the Watch.
Samsung’s bi-annual smorgasbord of flagship products was held today, announcing (among many other things) the latest Galaxy Note phones. This year’s refresh is christened the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, following the naming conventions of the Galaxy S20 series in February. Both are packing giant screens, stylus pens, and 5G radios.
When the second the Turboant X7 electric scooter was offered up for review, I jumped at the chance. This not-quite-pocket rocket is currently retailing at $449.99 and, if you ask me, is worth every cent. Why? Because the money you’ll save on city travel with this little beast is going to pay for the Turboant X7 many times over.
Recently, Wyze announced a new optional Cam Plus subscription for its security cameras. With Cam Plus, your Wyze Cams can start recording to the cloud when they detect a person without any cooldown periods. It’s a service very similar to Nest Aware, but they aren’t identical, and those differences matter.
With the ongoing global pandemic, remote learning is quickly becoming a choice more and more parents have to make. Today, Google announced new features for Assistant and Nest Hubs that should help with schooling at home. Family Bell will give your school day structure, and new commands can help start the day off right.
Sharing links, files, and photos on Android phones is about to get a lot easier. Google is launching its Nearby Share tool, which lets you share content between local devices without copy-pasting links or exchanging contact info. Nearby Share is available on select Pixel and Samsung phones today and will arrive on other devices (including Chromebooks) in the coming weeks.
If you’re a fan of Alto’s Adventure or Alto’s Odyssey, we’ve got good news: Team Alto is releasing both games together as The Alto Collection on August 13. The bundle will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store on that date and sometime later for the Nintendo Switch.

Apple is refreshing its 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs with new processors and better webcams. They may look the same on the outside, but with standard SSDs across the line and new configuration options, your choices are better than ever.
So long Google Play Music, we barely knew you. Well, that’s not true—we’ve known you for almost nine years, and you’ve come pre-installed on about a billion Android phones. But you won’t be around much longer: Google is retiring Play Music in October, in favor of the shiny new YouTube Music.
Every few weeks, the fledgling YouTube Music gains new features that we assumed it already had. This week’s smorgasbord includes Google Maps integration, a dedicated YouTube Music app for Android TV, and personalized music suggestions on Nest smart speakers.
Wyze has bee saying for some time that a new subscription service was on the way, and now it’s official. The new Wyze Cam Plus service combines the features of Complete Motion Capture and Person Detection into one subscription for a modest $15 a year.
Google’s SVP of Devices and Services Rick Osterloh published a post on the company’s Keyword blog today, reminding everyone that Google would very much like to buy Fitbit. Which we already knew, and which doesn’t really include any new information. In fact, Google doesn’t seem to want to talk about Fitbit much at all: the post is mostly about Europe.
Microsoft has been making a big push into the rapidly-growing cloud gaming segment with its xCloud beta service. Said service will be out of beta and ready for primetime in about six weeks, shedding its name to simply become a part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. On September 15th it comes to Android phones and tablets in 22 different countries.

Lucky for you, we rounded up a solid list of beginner-friendly (and budget-friendly) turntables, and some basic accessories for storing, playing, and cleaning your new vinyl collection.
Portable batteries are one of my favorite accessories, but they’re also admittedly pretty unsexy. They’re not as glamorous as a new mouse or set of true wireless earbuds, but that doesn’t mean a solid portable battery is any less of a must-have for literally everyone. So, if you don’t have one, you probably should. Here’s why.
