The Morning After: Robot dog maker Boston Dynamics has a new owner


If you haven’t already bought a new gaming monitor in the online shopping chaos we like to call Prime Day, Samsung might have something to halt any rash purchases. It unveiled its latest batch of budget Odyssey gaming monitors, including a flat rather than a curved model that can do 4K at 144Hz. Unlike Samsung’s curvy G9 and G7 models, the new Odyssey G7 28 (G70) has a flat panel and uses IPS rather than QLED tech, which means it won’t be as bright. With HDMI 2.1 compatibility, it can do 4K resolution at up to 144Hz, so it’ll support Sony’s PS5 and the Xbox Series X models at 4K 120Hz with room to spare. Alas, Samsung hasn’t offered prices for this, the most interesting model. However, a pair of new 1080p G3 monitors, with 144Hz refresh rates, will land at the start of July.

Steven Spielberg’s production company, Amblin, has signed a deal with Netflix to make “multiple new feature films per year” for the streaming service. It’s a surprise, given some of Spielberg’s previous statements about streaming movies. In a 2018 interview, Spielberg voiced opposition to streaming movies being eligible for Academy Awards: “Once you commit to a television format, you’re a TV movie.”

Amblin has worked with Netflix in the past. It produced , which scooped up six Oscar nominations this year. This deal will cover at least two films a year. Continue reading.
