When buying a TV-Box, people mainly look at the ability to play streaming services (like Toutube, Netflix, Megogo...), IP-TV and torrents. But it turns out that almost all set-top boxes can also play games. After all, in most cases, it's the same android. In some simple games such as chess, Arkanoid or PacMan can be played with the included remote, but in the racing or shooter is not possible. On the one hand, you can get a gamepad from PlayStation. But a controller that's three times more expensive than the console itself may feel a little strange, don't you think? But you also shouldn't buy some duds from a Chinese basement cheaper than $20 - you will not get any pleasure from playing the games.

Regular readers of gg, are probably aware that since the first announcements of smartphones with flexible displays, I am an apologist for this technology and believe that it will have a great future. As a rule, the opponents of this idea appeal only to one argument - the high price. But we have been sitting here "for a long time", watching as from time to time such arguments float in front of us one after another, on their way to oblivion. The first phones were expensive too. The first smartphones weren't cheap either. That said, the timeline for the adoption and diffusion of new technologies is constantly accelerating (not least thanks to our beloved internet and globalization). A simple (and my favorite example) - from the moment a young Mark Zuckerberg sat down to write code for his startup on campus, to the moment he became a billionaire and a Hollywood movie was made about him, it took only 7 (!) years. The reasons for my irrepressible enthusiasm lie, in fact, in the fact that flexible screens will allow us to bring back the golden age of push-button phones, with all their variety of form factors. And the fact that these new form factors fit perfectly into the existing user experience.

Our most inquisitive readers in the world, of course, already know that Huawei presented a global version of the smartphone Nova 9, and along with it the smart watch Huawei Watch GT 3 and unusual looking headphones FreeBuds Lipstick, whose charging case looks exactly like a tube of expensive lipstick. Of course, all of us are interested in the answer to the main question - what is going on with Huawei, how the company plans to continue living without Google services, and whether it is realistic to survive without these services? I have already had some speculations about this, but after talking to Derek Yu, Vice President of Huawei Consumer Business Group in Central and Eastern Europe, all these speculations have been confirmed to a greater or lesser extent.

Admittedly, the announcement of Samsung Z Flip 3 smartphone did not give me the impression of a revolutionary model, despite the obvious progress compared to its predecessor Z Flip. My personal acquaintance with the newcomer didn't create a sense of a new phase in the bendable screen smartphone category either. Well, obviously, the external screen was enlarged, it began to fit more information. Yes, IPX84-rated water resistance appeared. But, as it turned out, it was just a superficial experience. After a few days of use, I changed my point of view. No, it did not become in my eyes revolution like Z Flip a year ago, but the list of its advantages sums up a very different, user experience, which you should learn about.

TP Vision held a big presentation on August 31, presenting a wide update of Philips AV products. We have already written about the new TWS-headphones Philips Fidelio T1, but the new TVs deserve a special attention if only because the older models of Philips TV always presented a maximum set of modern technologies, seasoned with pleasant bonuses in the form of Ambilight, built-in soundbars Bowers & Wilkins and the use of design materials in the finishing - acoustic fabrics and leather for remote controls.

The very fact that Netflix is launching a video game division is a very good sign for the entertainment industry. In my opinion, it is Netflix that has the best chance of making the qualitative breakthrough in format change and the business models for using those changes that the industry has come close to.

If you need a video recorder, the easiest way is to buy  it on Aliexpress. Does it make sense to buy it there and wait for the parcel from China? In practice, if you are willing to wait from 2 to 4 weeks (most parcels arrive in this time frame), then you can get a good device (all DVRs, anyway made in China), saving in this case to half the cost of the same DVR in our retail

Mechanical keyboards have a lot of advantages over membrane keyboards for people of any occupation and hobby: someone likes to type sheets of text so that his hands do not fall off, someone appreciates the durability of the device, and someone just really likes the characteristic clang that the keys "mechanical" emit when pressed. Today we are going to tell you about ten models of mechanical keyboards that are the most popular on Aliexpress. It should be noted at once that many of the world's leading brands are not represented by brand-name stores, and most of them do not sell their products there at all, so this list will not include keyboards HyperX or BenQ, except that a rare Razer products managed to sneak into Ali through the windows of dusky Chinese stores. But some of them boast much more democratic prices.
