Philips’ new projector looks like one I’d really like to have in my living room

Ultra Short Throw (UST) projectors are the way to go if you want a big picture without taking up too much space and would rather not buy a huge OLED or LCD TV. Philips has ventured into the UST arena before with its Screeneo U3 model, but the company’s new Screeneo U4 seems to strike a much better balance between budget and general concerns.

Available exclusively for pre-order at indiegogo for the affordable starting price of €599/$620, the Screeneo U4, which will launch in August, is competitively priced with some of the best portable projectors we’ve reviewed recently, such as Samsung’s The Freestyle and Xgimi Halo.

Big Gamers News – Bitcoin Is Crashing and Taking the Crypto Market With It

If you have any investments in popular cryptocurrencies, chances are you’ve had a pretty unpleasant few weeks. While most of the news surrounding the current cryptocurrency market crash concerns Bitcoin, its collapse has also dragged down several other coins such as Ethereum.

At its peak, a single Bitcoin was worth nearly $64,400, which means that if you bought $1,000 worth of Bitcoin on November 12, 2021, it would currently be worth around $326 today. Likewise, the price of Ethereum has dropped to $1,112 this week, down from $4,600 in November, and that was the main currency still being mined using consumer graphics cards rather than application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) miners. ).

This is bad news for cryptocurrencies, but potentially good news for other stakeholders who are praying for the market to go down, even if some people have nothing to gain from the Bitcoin crash. One such group is PC gamers and computer enthusiasts who have partially blamed cryptocurrency miners for the rapid inflation of graphics card prices in recent years – but will this continued market collapse provide a fruitful bounty of cheap GPUs?
