Nintendo is fixing the screenshot glitch affecting Minecraft on Switch

Nintendo Switch screenshot glitch

This past weekend, some Nintendo Switch owners were surprised to discover dozens of screenshots on their consoles that they didn't remember taking. As it turns out, many of those Switch owners bought the recently released Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition, which apparently shipped with a strange bug that caused the Switch to randomly take screenshots on its own. Thankfully, Nintendo is on the case.

Bose’s Solo 5 is the easiest way to get killer sound out of any TV

Bose Sound Bar Price Amazon

In our quest to find the best products at the best prices for our readers, we've focused plenty of attention on the sound bar category. The logic is obvious here: sound bars are the simplest and most affordable way to get good sound out of your TV. Of course, as is the case with anything else, not all sound bars are created equal. We have just a few favorites, and there are two at the $250 sweet spot that are consistently at the top of our list.

One is the VIZIO SB3851-C0 38-Inch 5.1 Channel Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer and Satellite Speakers, which is a perfect affordable option for a living room where you definitely want surround sound. For any other room in the house though, our pick is the Bose Solo 5 TV Sound System. This single-unit solution is by far the easiest way to get killer Bose-quality sound out of any TV, and it's so affordable that it costs less than a pair of Bose's noise-cancelling headphones.

Here are some key details from the product page:

  • Single sound bar provides better sound quality compared to your TV.The Solo 5 TV sound system is an easy solution, with advanced technologies that deliver the clear audio your TV can’t.
  • Dialogue mode to make every word and detail stand out
  • Bluetooth connectivity to wirelessly stream music from any of your devices
  • One connection to your TV
  • Universal remote controls TV, bass, Bluetooth connections and more

Bose Solo 5 TV Sound System: $249.00

Hands-on: Accell’s USB-C to HDMI 2.0 adapter connects the MacBook Pro to 4K displays @60Hz [Video]

A few weeks ago we reviewed Aukey’s USB-C to HDMI Cable for the MacBook Pro. It worked, but since it featured HDMI 1.4, it only allowed for connecting to 4K displays at 30Hz max.

While such an adapter works well for watching movies with lesser refresh rates, 30Hz is not the ideal refresh rate for working on a computer monitor. Such a refresh rate can often lead to headaches and eyestrain, not to mention the choppiness and laggy cursor movement.

Accell’s new USB-C adapter promises to address this issue by including HDMI 2.0. How is this possible when USB-C only supports HDMI 1.4b? Watch our hands-on video inside for the details. more…

The iPhone 8 could be delayed by Apple’s battle with Qualcomm

iPhone 8 delay: Apple vs Qualcomm legal battle

Apple is currently engaged with an unusually harsh battle with Qualcomm, one of the key companies that designs internal components for the iPhone. Basttles between Apple and its suppliers normally don't last long: iPhone contracts are often the lifeblood of small suppliers, and losing Apple's business will put most companies out of business.

But Qualcomm, the manufacturer of the processor inside every Android phone worth talking about, is one of the few companies that can stand up to Apple. The two companies are currently engaged in a fight over patent licensing: Qualcomm wants Apple to pay it for its designs used inside the iPhone. Apple says that Qualcomm's demands for licensing the patent are unreasonable, and has instructed its manufacturers (like Foxconn) not to pay royalties to Qualcomm for the time being.
