Samsung awarded $6.4 billion CHIPS Act grant to build 'semiconductor ecosystem' in Texas
The Biden administration just announced a preliminary agreement to award Samsung up to $6.4 billion in grants as part of CHIPS Act funding. This money will complement the $44 billion in private investment that the company has promised to spend in the state to build a "semiconductor ecosystem."

This money will be spent to finish a "leading-edge" campus in Taylor, Texas that will focus on research and development of advanced logic technologies, manufacturing and, perhaps most importantly, packaging. When it comes to chips, packaging refers to providing power, inputs and outputs. It's a highly specialized process that's typically done overseas, which means that even chips built on US soil have to get shipped to another country and then mailed back. Samsung's dedicated packaging facility should eliminate some of these headaches and strengthen the overall supply chain.

The money will also go toward an expansion of Samsung's pre-existing facility in Austin. Taylor and Austin are only 40 minutes away from one another, leading the Biden administration to suggest that the combination of both facilities will turn "Samsung's existing presence in Texas into a comprehensive ecosystem for the development and production o

Rode's $90 MagSafe mount lets you attach pro lights and mics to your iPhone
Modern iPhone cameras are extremely capable video recorders, but typically require accessories like lights and microphones to ensure professional results. Audio gear manufacturer Rode just announced a pair of gadgets intended to simplify this process, so streamers won't have to build a cumbersome rig in the computer room or haul one to an outdoor space. 

The Rode Magnetic Mount is exactly what it sounds like. It's a MagSafe mount with a pair of connection points for accessories like the aforementioned lights and microphones. There are two adjustable cold shoe arms that allow people to use the phone in portrait or landscape mode. For the uninitiated, "cold shoe" refers to metal connection brackets that lack power, whereas "hot shoe" would refer to metal connection brackets that feature electronic contacts.

It's not just for iPhones, as any smartphone snuggled into a MagSafe-compatible case should work. The Rode Magnetic Mount is made from high-grade aluminum, so it's on the pricier side when compared to the endless barrage of similar products on Amazon. It costs $90 and begins shipping on April 24.

Rode Rode also announced the Phone Cage, which promises to "turn your smartphone into a professional filmmaking rig." This is basically a beefier version of the aforementioned accessory, with five col
