But now it looks like there might be yet another model introduced to the lineup.

According to a report from Vooks, they stumbled across an FCC filing which suggests that Nintendo could be working on a new controller for the Switch. The device in question has the model number HAC-043, making it one number higher than the SNES controllers which had the HAC-042 model number.

Nintendo Switch Finally Adds Support For Bluetooth Headphones

Nintendo Switch Finally Adds Support For Bluetooth Headphones

Connecting Bluetooth headphones to your phone, tablet, laptop, or consoles is pretty much the standard these days. However, when Nintendo launched the Switch, there was no support for Bluetooth headphones. Instead, Nintendo tried to be clever about it by using an app and some convoluted method to facilitate in-game voice chat.

The company defended its decision back then by claiming that this is because we already have our phones on us all the time, so it makes sense to use it as the medium for communication. It looks like the company could be partially walking back on that because in the latest firmware update, Nintendo has finally allowed Switch owners to pair Bluetooth headphones with the console.

How To Delete Preinstalled Apps On Android

How To Delete Preinstalled Apps On Android

All phones come with preinstalled software. Some of these apps are essential, like messages, the phone dialer, a built-in browser, and so on. However, sometimes to try and differentiate their phones from the competition, Android handset manufacturers usually include their own custom software.

This is meant to make their phones more appealing with exclusive apps and features that other handsets won’t have, but more often than not, these apps come across feeling like bloatware. After all, if you needed it you could probably easily find an alternative as opposed to having it forced upon you.

Nikon Has Plans To Launch An Entry-Level Camera Aimed At Videographers

These days, pretty much all digital cameras can shoot video as well as photos.

Study Finds iPhone Users More Likely To Trade-In Than Android

Whenever you want to buy a new phone, there is the question of what are you going to do with your old one?

According to a recent survey by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, it seems that iPhone owners are more likely to do that than their Android counterparts.

According to the results of the survey, they found that more than 35% of iPhone owners who have purchased a new or used device in the past 12 months either sold off or traded in their older model. It also found that trade-ins were more popular than outright selling it, where 30% traded-in their iPhones, while only 5% sold.

Sony Wants To Build A Robot That Can One Day Win Its Own Nobel Prize

Sony Wants To Build A Robot That Can One Day Win Its Own Nobel Prize

That is something that Dr. Hiroaki Kitano, CEO of Sony Computer Science Laboratories is hoping for the future. His plan is to create a “hybrid form of science that shall bring systems biology and other sciences into the next stage”, which in other words is an AI so clever that it can match today’s top scientific minds.

The problem with most robots is that they’re really only as good as the person who made them, and the software that powers them. This is versus humans where we can think for ourselves, come to our own conclusions, and figure out the solution to problems. Some minds are clearly better at this than others, and that’s what Kitano is hoping to create in the AI space one day, or maybe by 2050.

Android's Joker Malware Has Returned And Users Need To Be Careful

From time to time, new malware is discovered, or in some instances, old malware can actually make a return. This is the case with the Joker malware that was initially discovered on Android devices back in 2017, and now according to the Belgian Police, it seems that the malware has returned.

GTA 5 For PS5 Will Run At 4K At 60 FPS

Many gamers are no doubt eagerly waiting for Rockstar’s GTA 6. We have no idea when that will be arriving, but it seems that the company is more than happy to keep milking GTA 5. As you might recall, earlier this year it was announced that GTA 5 will be arriving on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X in November.

We know that some of you might already be sick of the game, but according to a post on the Sony Germany PlayStation Blog, it was revealed (via translation) that the game will run at 4K resolution at a buttery smooth 60 fps. This is for the PS5, but it’s probably safe to assume that the Xbox Series X should have no problems running the game at similar specs as well.

The Nintendo Switch Has Outsold The PS3 And Xbox 360

Following the disaster that was the Nintendo Wii U, many were understandably worried about how well the Switch would do as its successor. Fast forward to today, it seems that those concerns have all been alleviated because according to Nintendo’s most recent financial results, the Switch has sold extremely well.

According to the figures released by Nintendo, they have shipped 89.04 million units of the console to date. This still puts it slightly behind the likes of the Wii which sold over 100 million, but it means that the Switch has ultimately outsold other popular consoles like the Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360.

Sony Could Have A New PS5 VR Headset In The Works

Sony is no stranger when it comes to virtual reality, but it has been a while since we last saw any major changes or updates on that front. However, it seems that Sony could actually be working on a new VR headset for the PS5 console. This is according to a report from PSVR Without Parole.

The video claims that Sony held a private conference for developers the other day where they detailed a new VR headset that they were working on. The folks at UploadVR have since verified that the event did take place, which while it doesn’t necessarily confirm anything, at the very least corroborates the claims.
