Sony has rolled out a beta update for the PS4 and there are two features in particular that take center stage. We finally have support for external hard drives for upto 8TB of space.

There are some more features lined up for the next update and personally, I’m looking forward to some sweet custom wallpapers.
Jawbone, a company that manufactures headphones, Bluetooth speakers and fitness trackers is reportedly shutting down their consumer business. The main reason behind this is a lack of sales revenue from that sector, so they’ll be shifting their focus completely to medical products and services for the health industry. The wearables market is pretty competitive these days.
And speaking of wearables, we finally have the official announcement for Google’s Android Watch 2.0 and LG’s new smartwatches. With Android Pay and Google assistant integration, these new watches have a lot of features backing them up. For the full details of what the LG smartwatches have in store, check out our article in the description below.
Things took an unexpected turn for Apple over the past week. In cooperation with the UAE Ministry of Economy, 88,770 iPhone 6s smartphones will be recalled due to a manufacturing problem. While this may not be as hazardous as the Note 7 of 2016, your phone shutting down without warning is still pretty annoying.
Tesla is coming to the middle east. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla is expected to make an appearance at the launch event of Tesla here in the UAE. It is reported that Musk will also be attending the fifth edition of the World Government Summit and that he will be one of the speakers at the event. Look forward to more news on that next week.
