Galaxy Fold units keep mysteriously breaking, while the iPhone XS survives a shark bite
If you've paid attention to tech industry news to any degree over the past day or two, you're no doubt aware that Samsung is dealing with a bit of unpleasant scrutiny at the moment over reports of early units of its forthcoming Galaxy Fold phone mysteriously breaking. Definitely a bad look for Samsung and suggestive that the company may have rushed its first foldable handset into production, or that there may at least have been some issues around quality control. It was hard not to be reminded of those reports about Galaxy Folds breaking after a day or so of normal usage while watching the behind-the-scenes video that complements Apple's latest "Shot on iPhone" commercial. At one point in the behind-the-scenes footage, which you can watch above, one of the filmmakers is shown basically helpless when a shark snatches up his iPhone. With the phone secure in the shark's jaws, the filmmaker swims after him and ends up successfully retrieving it. And the phone appears to be fine after that. For the new commercial, titled Don't Mess with Mother, Apple hired production company Camp4 Collective to showcase the iPhone XS's video capabilities while capturing scenes from mother nature. The outtakes video includes scenes from a volcano, in the water with sharks and on mountains, the whole thing giving off a thrilling, "you are there" vibe.

Razer's Core X Chroma eGPU cabinet features RGB and Intel's latest Thunderbolt 3 controller
Razer's new Core X Chroma eGPU cabinet adds a bigger power supply, Intel's newest Thunderbolt 3 controller, and probably most importantly: Chroma RGB support.

The original Core X featured a 550-watt PSU to power GPUs. With the Core X Chroma, Razer moves up to 700 watts. That probably sounds excessive, as even fairly beefy GPUs can run with well under 550 watts of power but Razer said folks should remember the cabinet has to have enough power to allocate up to 100 watts for charging a laptop as well.

Besides the PSU bump, Razer has added four USB Type-A ports and Gigabit Ethernet to the Core X Chroma eGPU. The original Core X functioned purely as an external GPU cabinet with no downstream connectivity.
