Valve has released a driver update that should allow Windows to run more smoothly on the Steam Deck (you still need to install Windows yourself, since it ships with the Linux-based Steam OS though). Roku may be preparing to launch a line of smart home products (that are actually rebranded Wyze products). And it turns out Apple’s new car crash detection for the iPhone 14 doesn’t only detect car crashes… it can be a literal life saver, but it could also send an accidental alert emergency services if you’re riding a rollercoaster.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. I would have thought turning off crash detection when the phone is geolocated in a known amusement park would have been obvious. So obvious that I would have imagined that anyone who predicted it was just thinking wishfully.

    Also, it doesn’t look like that updated Raspberry Pi phone actually has a cellular modem. The old one did but since there’s almost no 4g modems with VOLTE capability, none of which can be easily attached to a Raspberry Pi, it doesn’t have one.
    In other words, it’s not really much of a phone.

      1. Hello Brad, did you edit/remove that link because of the issue mentioned above? I can’t find it in this page (I can still find it on twitter, though).
