When enabled, the RAM Plus feature occupies a specific part of the phone’s internal memory in order to boost the apps’ performance on Galaxy devices. However, all Galaxy fans don’t find RAM Plus feature useful, so Samsung has now added an option to disable the virtual RAM.

Mark Zuckerberg: Apple’s Vision Pro is ‘not the one that I want’
At WWDC23, Apple introduced the Vision Pro as the vision of the future of computing. Meanwhile, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg says (without mentioning Vision Pro) that it ‘could be the vision of the future of computing, but like, it’s not one that I want.’
According to TheVerge, Mark Zuckerberg cited in a companywide meeting that Apple’s device didn’t present any major breakthroughs in technology that Meta hadn’t “already explored” In addition, the CEO hinted that Meta’s Quest 3 headset will be much cheaper, at $499.

Mark added that the Quest is about “people interacting in new ways and feeling closer” while also “about being active and doing things.” “By contrast, every demo that they showed was a person sitting on a couch by themself,” he said of Apple’s WWDC keynote earlier this week.
For a long time, Facebook’s parent company has been trying to position itself as a leader in the virtual and augmented reality space. Just a few days before Apple’s announcement of Vision Pro, Meta unveiled their Quest 3, which will start shipping this fall.
You can read Zuckerberg’s full remarks about Apple’s headset below:
Apple finally announced their headset, so I want to talk about that for a second. I was really curious to see what they were gonna ship. And obviously I haven’t seen it yet, so I’ll learn more as we get to play with it and see what happens and how people use it.
From what I’ve seen initially, I’d say the good news is that there’s no kind of magical solutions that they have to any of the constraints on laws of physics that our teams haven’t already explored and thought of. They went with a higher resolution display, and between that and all the technology they put in there to power it, it costs seven times more and now requires so much energy that now you need a battery and a wire attached to it to use it. They made that design trade-off and it might make sense for the cases that they’re going for.
But look, I think that their announcement really showcases the difference in the values and the vision that our companies bring to this in a way that I think is really important. We innovate to make sure that our products are as accessible and affordable to everyone as possible, and that is a core part of what we do. And we have sold tens of millions of Quests.
More importantly, our vision for the metaverse and presence is fundamentally social. It’s about people interacting in new ways and feeling closer in new ways. Our device is also about being active and doing things. By contrast, every demo that they showed was a person sitting on a couch by themself. I mean, that could be the vision of the future of computing, but like, it’s not the one that I want. There’s a real philosophical difference in terms of how we’re approaching this. And seeing what they put out there and how they’re going to compete just made me even more excited and in a lot of ways optimistic that what we’re doing matters and is going to succeed. But it’s going to be a fun journey.
Netflix sees subscribers spike in the US, courtesy of new password sharing policies
Netflix has seen a huge spike in new subscribers in the US, following its new password-sharing policies. Data analytics company Antenna reports that Netflix recorded a significant increase in subscribers in the four days after it notified users about its paid sharing policies.
According to the data, daily signups rose to 73,000, marking a 102 percent increase over Netflix’s previous 60-day average. The streamer also added 100,000 subscribers on May 26 and 27. This is a huge development Netflix reported once the Covid-19 lockdowns went into effect in March and April 2020.
Average daily Sign-ups to Netflix reached 73k during that period, a +102% increase from the prior 60-day average. These exceed the spikes in Sign-ups Antenna observed during the initial U.S. Covid-19 lockdowns in March and April 2020. https://t.co/2CNU67kQST

Netflix password-sharing policies
The new password-sharing policies ask Netflix subscribers to pay an extra $7.99 per month to share their account with up to two people who live outside their household. There were reports that the platform may face a huge cancellation, but signups surpassed the cancellations.
Earlier this year, the OTT platform released paid sharing in several countries including Canada, New Zealand, Portugal, and Spain. Notably, Netflix revealed during its recent earnings call that its subscriber base in Canada is “now growing faster than in the US.”

In the landscape mode, One UI 5.1.1 continues to offer the same US as One UI 5. All functions are same and there’s no change in their icons too. However, the improvements may reflect in user experience instead of visible tweaks.
