Amazon debuts a generative AI-powered playlist feature
Amazon Music is joining Spotify in starting to offer a generative AI-powered playlist feature. For now, Maestro is available in beta to a small number of Amazon Music users in the US on iOS and Android.

Folks who are included in the beta will see Maestro on the home screen after they update to the latest version of the app. They can also access the tool by tapping the plus button to create a new playlist.

The idea is to use natural language prompts to create any kind of playlist imaginable. Your prompts can include sounds, activities, emotions and even emoji. Amazon suggests you might ask Maestro to whip up a playlist of songs that sound like the robot emoji (in which case you'll probably hear a bunch of Daft Punk tracks). Other prompts the company suggests include "?? and eating ??," "Make my ?? a genius," "Myspace era hip-hop" and, bizarrely, "Music my grandparents made out to." Ewwww.

Based on those ideas, it does seem that Maestro is more or less ready to handle whatever prompts you can throw at it, though Amazon notes that the tech is still in beta. As such, Maestro might not always get things right immediately. The company also says that it has safeguards in place to prohibit offensive language and inappropriate prompts.

The Morning After: Samsung is, once again, shipping the most phones in the world
Samsung reportedly shipped 60.1 million smartphone units worldwide in Q1, representing 20.8 percent of the global market share — and first place. Meanwhile, Apple shipped 50.1 million units for 17.3 percent of the market share. Both companies, however, saw a decrease from Q1 2023. Apple saw an almost 10 percent drop, while Samsung's hit was less than one percent.

Apple nudged Samsung out briefly in 2023, but it's back to business as usual. The IDC's takeaway is that the world of smartphones is strengthening (what does that mean?), with a boost to higher-priced phones—true for both Samsung and Apple.

Xiaomi rounded out the top five brands with 40.8 million units, Transsion with 28.5 million units and OPPO with 25.2 million units shipped. Never heard of Transsion? It's a global smartphone powerhouse based in China, responsible for phone brands including Tecno, Itel and Infinix.

Transfer C drive to new SSD in Windows without reinstalling

The C drive, also the system drive, is the main hard disk partition that contains the Windows Operating System, system-related files, settings, installed applications, logs, and other related data.

However, as it is used longer, the system disk (C drive) will store more data and gradually wear out. As your system drive is full and its storage reaches its limit, you must replace it with a new system disk to expand the capacity.

Get MSI's ultrawide OLED monitor for $779, its lowest price yet

The MSI MEG 342C is comparable to other 34-inch OLED monitors from Dell and Samsung, with a standard 3440×1440 resolution and a subtle 1800R curve to its panel. With a 175Hz refresh rate and a lightning-fast .03ms response time, it's ready to tackle even the fastest multiplayer games with the perfect blacks and vibrant colors that OLED brings to the table.

Other highlights of the spec list include DisplayPort 1.4 and double HDMI 2.1, plus USB-C video and four extra USB-A ports for accessories. An integrated KVM switch can handle multiple machines in picture-by-picture or picture-in-picture mode. The screen supports AMD FreeSync and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 and, naturally, it includes a little RGB bling around the back.

MSI includes "OLED Care" features to prevent burn-in with pixel shifting, refreshing, and automatic dimming on static screens. It also comes with a three-year warranty that explicitly covers burn-in. The regular price is $999 and this "limited time offer" from MSI's US store doesn't have a specific expiration date, so get an order in quickly if you're ready to buy.
