The Morning After: An Early Look at Logitech’s New Gaming Handheld

Earlier this month, Logitech said it was working on a gaming handheld to connect to your favorite cloud gaming service. Now leaked images of them have danced their way across the internet. The image looks like a slimmer Steam Deck (or Switch), showing icons for Xbox, GeForce Now, and Steam, as well as Chrome and YouTube. On the one hand, it’s a lot like so many of those clip-on brackets that fit your existing smartphone, like the . On the other hand, if this provides an affordable way to play AAA titles on the go while preserving your smartphone’s battery life, Logitech could sell a bundle. (And while you’re waiting for it to launch, you can always do that, since Logitech upgraded that one, too.)

The disc model now weighs the same as the digital model at launch.

The PlayStation 5 was famous at launch, which was a problem for the company that made it (and those who supplied it). But the Sony that put the console on its feet is starting to pay off, with an updated model.

Very similar to the Glorious GMMK Pro, the 75 is a 75 percent tenkeyless deck with Holy Panda X switches, DCX keycapa, and a dial. Be warned, although Drop normally strives for affordability, a pre-built version will set you back $349 or $399 depending on the color you choose.

Two telescopes are better than one.

This is a new image of the Phantom Galaxy (M74), 32 million light-years from Earth. The image offers an unprecedented look at a spiral galaxy that first enchanted astronomers in 1780. What’s even cooler is that the image is a composite, collecting data from both the brand new James Webb and the very old Hubble space telescopes. It’s a testament to Hubble’s longevity, Webb’s enhanced strength, and the value of friendship and teamwork.
