If you’ve been waiting for a big price drop on any of the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones, B&H Photo has you covered with up to $200 off on the cost of an S10E, S10, or S10 Plus. Each phone is currently $100 off, and you’ll be able to click a coupon on the product page to take off an additional $100, totaling a $200 discount at checkout. There are a few color variants to choose from, too.

This means that the S10E with 128GB of onboard storage, which usually costs $749.99 (the same price as an iPhone XR), is now $549.99. So if you’re already an Android user, or just want a powerful phone that’s smaller than the iPhone XR, the S10E is worth checking out.

With the two discounts, the S10, which normally goes for $899, is $699, putting it on par with the cost of the OnePlus 7 Pro. Both phones are great, though there are tradeoffs with each. The S10 has a headphone jack and works with the full range of GSM and CDMA carriers in the US; the OnePlus 7 Pro works only with T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon. However, the S10 misses out on the OnePlus 7 Pro’s smooth 90Hz refresh rate display. So if you’re looking for a new phone with great features, you have a hard choice to make.

If you want even more screen real estate and a dual front-facing camera array, the S10 Plus starts at $799 (once the discounts are applied) for the phone with 128GB of storage. Until the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 10 releases, it’s one of the best big phones that you can buy, especially for this price.

These discounts apply to Galaxy S10 phones with larger storage capacities as well, but since each of them offer microSD support, there’s little reason to spend the extra money on a more capacious phone instead of a high-capacity microSD card — especially when B&H Photo prices a SanDisk 400GB microSD for $67.99.

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.

Get ready for some Netflix news.

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.
