The same source that brought us photos of the Galaxy Note20 Ultra this week has gone ahead and made a video about it. There really isn't too much more to the video from @jimmyispromo than the pictures he's already posted to Twitter, but it does show a pretty realistic Samsung smartphone with an S Pen existing in human timespace.

Facebook rolling out helpful tool for archiving or deleting old posts

If you're like me, you've probably grown up with social media. You've also probably grown up enough to recognize some of your posts don't show the best side of you. With an easily traceable digital paper trail, you might not want those out in the public square.

Well, good news at last: the latest beta will finally let you give dark mode a spin.

Screenshot editing made it into stock Android relatively late as it only recently arrived with Android 9. To make up for this oversight, Google seems to be determined to add isolated solutions to as many of its apps as possible and has already equipped Google Photos and Search with their own markup tools.

YouTube Music finally gets gapless playback through server-side rollout (Update: Wider availability)

If you regularly use YouTube Music to experience songs, either through just the audio or with the accompanying music video, you might have lamented on its inability to properly playback songs with seamless transitions. That sucks if you're trying to sink into a full, continuous LP like Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon."
