One of the most hyped features of the latest iPhones is MagSafe, which allows you to magnetically attach accessories and wireless chargers.

Although rumors suggest that it could come to more Apple devices like the iPad Pro this year, it seems that the iPhone SE 3 might not bring this feature.

This information comes from the Japanese publication Macotakara, which has provided accurate information on future Apple products in the past.

Apparently, the new mid-range iPhone is going to have the same design as the iPhone SE (2020), and it will have wireless charging but no MagSafe.

What the next model will bring with respect to the 2020 model is 5G connectivity, which is an improvement over the previous model.

Rumors point to the iPhone SE 3 coming out sometime in 2022, two years after the last model.

Perhaps in the future, when our electronic devices carry almost inexhaustible batteries made of "graphene" or some other unexplored material, we will fondly remember the days when we carried portable batteries.

Until that happens, however, Handy Geng has chosen to create the ultimate power bank, a 27,000,000 mAh monster that uses an electric car battery to store and deliver electrical power through various plugs on its end.

To give you an idea, this capacity is enough to fully charge an iPhone 13 daily for more than 15 years.

The vehicle's battery is mounted on a wheeled cart along with what appears to be the car's charging unit or a grid inverter.

The set looks like a giant version of an external battery, with a curved sheet metal casing and white hard cardboard panels.

In the video we can see that, after charging a huge number of phones, he recharges an electric scooter, just before settling down by a river to fish, next to his washing machine, his television and his electric pot for cooking.

Microsoft and Sony have gone shopping. A few days ago, Microsoft bought Activision Blizzard for $67.8 billion, and Sony responded by buying Bungie, creators of Halo and Destiny.

Could either company try to buy Nintendo? Microsoft tried a long time ago, but Nintendo had no interest in being bought.

According to Bloomberg, Microsoft tried to acquire Nintendo 20 years ago, but the company laughed at Microsoft as it did not entertain the idea of being bought.

“Steve had us meet with Nintendo to see if they would consider being acquired. They laughed out loud. Imagine an hour of someone laughing at you. That's how the meeting went," says Kevin Bachus of Microsoft.

Is Nintendo now too big to be bought?

Nintendo has a market capitalization of $57.93 billion. That means Nintendo is actually smaller than Activision Blizzard, which has a market cap of $61.56 billion.

Even if Nintendo were to sell for more than its market capitalization (as Activision Blizzard did), the company would still be sold for around $60 billion, something Microsoft has shown is not out of reach.
