Nvidia stocks are down 18%. Team green blames the miners. Seems like they're on the gamer's side again, doesn't it?
But there's more to it. Nvidia apparently expected the mining craze to last longer. So they turned all their machines on overdrive and churned out as many 1060's as they possibly could. And then it all stopped, dropped and rolled. Now they're sitting on excess stock they have to move before they can release the RTX 2060. Now while this isn't great news, the question is "how long"?
Well, 3 to 6 months before their stock is cleared, according to CEO Jensen Huang. They're also worried about the second hand market, actually, with the majority of miners offloading their second-hand, mined cards at very attractive prices.

Samsung keeps at it. With a behind-screen camera in development and talks of a new foldable phone, the S10 looks to be an interesting addition to their lineup.
Following the likes of Apple, Samsung is looking at expanding their specific model offering, something that hasn't been done in a while. We all remember the slightly cheaper "mini" models that were released in years past. They were smaller, less-specced versions of the bigger phone, at a more affordable price. Samsung has stopped this since the S5 Mini, after which the A series seems to have taken up this space.
However, this might be returning with the S10. Not the Mini naming convention, nor the physically smaller phones per se, but at least in specs the S10 will offer more choice. Codenamed "Beyond", it is clear that Samsung has big plans for this model series. They seem to be aiming at a wider market, with triple cameras on the rear of the phone and it may even have the under-screen camera on the front as...
