People are also unwilling to spend on luxuries anymore, or are they?
A lot of people play games, but sometimes having to balance time for work and study and gaming, it means that some people end up playing less than they do. However, with the coronavirus pandemic and with people being in lockdown, it appears that more people are playing games than ever.
When Disney Plus and Apple TV Plus were announced with prices cheaper than what Netflix has been charging its customers, it was starting to feel like Netflix could be in trouble.

Siri was probably one of the first digital assistants to be launched on modern smartphones, but unfortunately as much as it was heralded at its unveiling, reality proved to be a much different story.

Cross-platform play is a feature that seems like a great idea on paper. Imagine a game that can be enjoyed with other gamers regardless of what platform you are running on, doesn’t that sound like fun?

There have been some conflicting reports on the success of the iPhone X, where there are some who claim that the phone isn’t doing so hot to the point where some of Apple’s suppliers are reportedly slashing production of components.
