Updated 3:50PM ET, February 9th: Samsung’s online store isn’t allowing some people who are trying to order an S22 phone to checkout. If you’re experiencing something similar, try again later, or order through a different retailer.

Samsung’s Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and the S22 Ultra have been announced at the company’s Unpacked event. Each phone has a new design, with new components that put them ahead of 2021’s leading Android phones. As for the S22 Ultra, it absorbed the Galaxy Note’s coolest trick of having an S-Pen built-in. If you want to jump right into our hands-on coverage, you can check out our early impressions with the hardware right here or in the video below.

There’s a chance that you’re already sold on the improvements and changes made to this year’s lineup. If that’s the case, I’m going to get right to it and tell you how to preorder the S22 phones so you can get them on launch day. Though, note that Samsung appears to be having some issues with keeping its online store up and running. Many people have struggled to checkout with their S22 orders. If this is impacting you, hang tight and try again soon.

Order before 2/24 to get preorder bonuses

No matter where you preorder a Samsung Galaxy S22 from, doing so before Thursday, February 24th, will ensure that you get Samsung’s preorder bonus. This includes allowing you to jump up to the next storage tier at no extra cost. For instance, you can get the 256GB model for the price of the 128GB model and the 512GB S22 Ultra for the price of a 256GB model (all S22 models start at 128GB of storage, but only the S22 Ultra goes beyond 256GB of storage). That’s pretty great.

In addition, Verge readers can get $250 of Samsung credit by preordering the S22 Ultra (normally, Samsung gives just $200). The S22 Plus will net you $150 of credit, or $100 with the S22, which you can use toward the purchase of the Samsung Freestyle projector or the Galaxy Watch 4. Lastly, you’ll be able to get 25 percent off the new Galaxy Tab S8.

We might not get another Apple event this year.

While Apple was initially expected to hold an event to launch its rumored M2-equipped Macs and iPads in October, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman predicts Apple will announce its new devices in a series of press releases, website updates, and media briefings instead.

I know that it probably takes a lot of work to put these polished events together, but if Apple does pass on it this year, I will kind of miss vibing to the livestream’s music and seeing all the new products get presented.

California Governor Gavin Newsom vetoes the state’s “BitLicense” law.

The bill, called the Digital Financial Assets Law, would establish a regulatory framework for companies that transact with cryptocurrency in the state, similar to New York’s BitLicense system. In a statement, Newsom says it’s “premature to lock a licensing structure” and that implementing such a program is a “costly undertaking:”

A more flexible approach is needed to ensure regulatory oversight can keep up with rapidly evolving technology and use cases, and is tailored with the proper tools to address trends and mitigate consumer harm.

If you’re using crash detection on the iPhone 14, invest in a really good phone mount.

Motorcycle owner Douglas Sonders has a cautionary tale in Jalopnik today about the iPhone 14’s new crash detection feature. He was riding his LiveWire One motorcycle down the West Side Highway at about 60 mph when he hit a bump, causing his iPhone 14 Pro Max to fly off its handlebar mount. Soon after, his girlfriend and parents received text messages that he had been in a horrible accident, causing several hours of panic. The phone even called the police, all because it fell off the handlebars. All thanks to crash detection.

Riding a motorcycle is very dangerous, and the last thing anyone needs is to think their loved one was in a horrible crash when they weren’t. This is obviously an edge case, but it makes me wonder what other sort of false positives we see as more phones adopt this technology.

Ford is running out of its own Blue Oval badges.

Running out of semiconductors is one thing, but running out of your own iconic nameplates is just downright brutal. The Wall Street Journal reports badge and nameplate shortages are impacting the automaker's popular F-series pickup lineup, delaying deliveries and causing general chaos.

Some executives are even proposing a 3D printing workaround, but they didn’t feel like the substitutes would clear the bar. All in all, it's been a dreadful summer of supply chain setbacks for Ford, leading the company to reorganize its org chart to bring some sort of relief.
