Senior analyst at Digitimes Research Luke Lin has been keeping an eye on Apple’s supply chain and believes he has the floor plan of the next generation iPhones. He divides them by screen size and type, but memory capacities also play a role. The successor to the iPhone X will stick to an OLED display of just about the same size – 5.85″. However, Apple managed to get the bill of materials down 10% from the $ 412.75 of the current model. The OLED display accounted for a big chunk of that. Which is why there was a 5.85″ LCD model in development, but that was paused for the Lunar New Year…
Finding the cheapest flights can be tricky, especially since prices tend to fluctuate rapidly and so many third-party services like Expedia, KAYAK and Priceline exist and are vying for your business. There’s an innovative new tool on the block now though, and according to Business Insider it’s specifically designed to exploit 100% legal loopholes in an effort […]
Magic Leap is planning multiple editions of its augmented reality glasses for different levels of consumers and professionals, with the cheapest starting at the price of a “higher-end mobile phone to higher-end tablet,” says company president and CEO Rony Abovitz. “I think we’re trying to establish certain tiers — we’re not going to be a single-product company over time,” Abovitz told an audience during an interview at Recode’s Code Media conference today.
Abovitz says the Magic Leap One, a “creator edition” headset that’s supposed to be coming out this year, falls somewhere in the middle of Magic Leap’s price range. “We will have a product line in that price point probably for the company’s history, and we’ll probably have some above…

Amazon’s new Kindle Oasis has some cool new features. It’s waterproof, but it also supports Audible, if you have have a set of bluetooth headphones or speakers handy. According to a listing on Amazon, it looks as though that functionality is coming to its cheapest kindle model as well.
According to the Kindle’s product page (via The Digital Reader), it will support Audible “in the coming months.” It looks as though it’ll do something similar to the Oasis: because the device doesn’t come equipped with speakers, users will have to pair the device with their own via bluetooth. The page notes that the feature will be available as an over-the-air-update at some point in the near future.
Unfortunately, it looks like it’ll only be the Oasis…
Anyone on the fence about buying the Tesla Model S 75 with rear-wheel drive should make a decision soon, because Tesla will discontinue that model after Sunday, September 24.
The company told Electrek in July it would say goodbye to the cheapest Model S, but didn’t give a specific date. Now, both Electrek and Business Insider are reporting this Sunday to be the cut-off date.
At $ 69,500, the rear-wheel drive Model S 75 was the most affordable Tesla vehicle available, but it’s now on its way out to make room for the currently in-production Model 3. Starting at $ 35,000, the Model 3 will soon be the only vehicle Tesla offers with single rear-wheel drive.
“Model 3 is a smaller, simpler, more affordable electric car,” Tesla explains on the Model 3 page. “Although it is our newest vehicle, Model 3 is not “Version 3” or the most advanced Tesla. Like Model S, it is designed to be the safest car in its class.”
If consumers want a Model S, they’ll have to choose between the 75D, 100D, and P100D, which are all dual-motor all-wheel-drive sedans; the 75D will become the cheapest Tesla model at $ 74,500.
This isn’t the first time Tesla has discontinued one of its cars. In 2016, both the 85-kWh Model X and the rear-wheel drive 90-kWh Model S were cut off to make room the current Model S line-up.
Tesla will stop making the rear-wheel drive Model S 75 after this coming Sunday, September 24th, as was first reported earlier today by Electrek. The car, which starts at $ 69,500 and is currently the cheapest Model S available, will be on the company’s website through the weekend. It will also sell out the rest of the inventory around the country, and then it will be gone.
At that point, the dual-motor Model S 75D will become the cheapest Model S at $ 74,500. That also means every Model S and Model X will come with dual motors — one on each axle — and the only rear-wheel drive car Tesla will sell will be the entry-level versions of the Model 3.
Whenever someone asks me when the best time to visit Amsterdam is, my first suggestion is anything but mid-September and late April. There is a good reason for that: Those tend to be peak days – and this means costlier vacations. So it makes sense to avoid them; and this is precisely what OffPeak.io helps you do. OffPeak.io is a stylishly designed website that helps you identify the most suitable days for affordable vacations. To accomplish this, it sources hotel room price data and displays it in easily digestible visuals so you can quickly find the cheapest dates to visit a place.…
