The vice president of hardware at Sony Interactive Entertainment recently gave an interview with interesting revelations. While not saying so directly, Masayasu Ito does not close the door on a PlayStation 5 Pro in the future.

Masayasu Ito believes Sony should be able to keep up with technological developments. In this sense, the launch of PS4 Pro was the method found by Nippon to be able to introduce this mid-life evolution of the PlayStation 4.

Sony believes console life has shrunk

In the interview given by Masayasu Ito, he talks about the longevity that consoles have in the market. If years ago it was normal for a console to persist in the market for 7 years 10, today things They are different.

With rapid advances in technology, Ito believes that the life of a console has shrunk to 6 to 7 years. Is this an indicator that a possible PlayStation 6 could reach 2027 at most?

This is the conclusion we can draw from the statements of the vice president of hardware at Sony Interactive Entertainment. But until we reach 2027, a PS5 Pro may be released.

Judging from what was the PS4 Pro, this possible console will simply include minor changes to keep up with the market. Maybe when the market has taken 8K in force there is reason for a hardware upgrade.

PlayStation 5 will already be a super capable console

The idealization of a PS5 Pro is still too early by today’s industry standards. These days, 4K is the strong bet of the market and PlayStation 5 will be more than capable of delivering us games in that resolution in a fluid way.

To this will contribute its processor developed by AMD based in your Ryzen. Your graphics will also be AMD’s responsibility, this time based on its Navi technology and with support for ray-tracing.

Attention! Bug on Android is frustrating users using PIN code

Last September, some Pixel users who use the PIN code to unlock their Android could not sign in to their device. Two months later, it seems that this bug has not been fixed and is now affecting third-party smartphones.

There are users of smartphones from Sony and OnePlus who are starting to complain about the same problem. This bug is apparently affecting models running Android 9 or Android 10.

Users cannot access your smartphone by its PIN code

The bug in question occurs when users try to use your PIN code to enter your smartphone. After validating your code, the smartphone screen turns off and then back on the lock screen, as if nothing had happened.

That is, if you have no other method of authentication enabled or available, you will be unable to access your device. A scenario that can be problematic for those who really need to use their smartphone.

Problem will stem from a process of validating your password

Recent Discoveries maintain that the cause of this bug is a method called “Synthetic Password Key”. In short, this method compares the code you entered as stored in the system.

It appears that this procedure is not being completed, returning a null value. It is this null value that is causing Android to crash.

As far as we know, this problem is not widely dispersed in the market, affecting a small group of users. Even so, it is important to alert you to using various smartphone unlocking methods whenever possible.

Google has said that it is aware of the issue and has already referred the case to the appropriate department. However, a solution has not yet been shipped to market.

Amazon has a habit of making celebrity voices such as singers or actors available in its Alexa smart column, to vary from the standard voice. The most recent addition is Samuel L. Jackson, whose “voice” can be added to the column catalog by 99 cents. All in English only is clear.

This way, Amazon Alexa users can now have Jackson’s voice answering music requests, weather status and all sorts of questions. Just ask Alexa to introduce you to Samuel L. Jackson or buy your voice manually.

Samuel L. Jackson’s voice has been recreated with technology

Instead of recording a ton of pre-made sentences, Amazon used a neural network that converts text to voice. Of course, the actor had to spend hours in the studio recording audio to create a sound base. However, the end result is a kind of deepfake vocal.

Comedy video “predicted” the actor’s voice on Alexa

In 2017, the comedy YouTube channel 80 gumdrops has released a video about a family that just bought an Amazon Alexa. The funniest part is that the column comes with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson by definition. During the video are played several sentences of his most iconic movies, complete with profanity and all.

Alexa will have an option “uncensored”

Samuel L. Jackson is known for his characteristic voice and a great use of profanity in his roles. As such, Amazon includes an unfiltered version of the voice, where the answers will be much more explicit. This option can be enabled or disabled in Alexa settings.
