Nintendo offering “simple fix” for disconnecting Switch controllers [Updated]

By Kyle Orland

Enlarge / The small bit of foam in the lower-right corner is apparently the only thing needed to make a Nintendo Switch left Joy-Con start working perfectly. (credit: Sean Hollister / CNet)

Update: Nintendo of America has issued the following statement to Ars Technica that seems to confirm much of what was shown in the original CNET report:

There is no design issue with the Joy-Con controllers, and no widespread proactive repair or replacement effort is underway. A manufacturing variation has resulted in wireless interference with a small number of the left Joy-Con. Moving forward this will not be an issue, as the manufacturing variation has been addressed and corrected at the factory level.

We have determined a simple fix can be made to any affected Joy-Con to improve connectivity.

There are other reasons consumers may be experiencing wireless interference. We are asking consumers to contact our customer support team so we can help them determine if a repair is necessary. If it is, consumers can send their controller directly to Nintendo for the adjustment, free of charge, with an anticipated quick return of less than a week. Repair timing may vary by region. For help with any hardware or software questions, please visit http://support.nintendo.com.

Original Story

After initial reviews of the Nintendo Switch noted widespread issues with the left Joy-Con occasionally losing its wireless connection to the console, hackers have found that opening up the controller and adding a simple piece of wire seems to increase its effective range greatly. Now, Nintendo is offering a similar fix to users who call in to its support line, and the company may be selling redesigned, fixed controllers at stores right now.

Just Another Decent Tablet I Ran Across on Gearbest This Evening. Cube iWork10 Flagship Tablet PC

By Tim

The Cube iWork 10 Flagship is another dirt cheap 10.1 inch tablet that you may want to consider. It is priced at a mere  $150 or roughly $199 if you want to get the keyboard.

Those are fairly stellar prices for a 10 .1 inch table with the following specs:

  • OS: Android 5.1, Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Cherry Trail X5-Z8300 Quad Core 1.44GHz ( up to 1.84GHz )
  • Screen resolution: 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)
  • 4 gb DDR3L Ram
  • 64 gb on-board storage
  • microSD slot supports up to 128 GB
  • USB-C port
  • micro USB port
  • Micro HDMI out
  • WIFI: 802.11b/g/n wireless
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Battery Capacity(mAh): 7000mAh

If you are like me and run a Bluetooth keyboard this becomes very attractive.

Below you will find a video review, keep in mind this tablet has been around for quite awhile…

That is all for this evening,

Tim

Logitech Launches Rugged Keyboard Case for iPad

By Radu Iorga

With every iPad launch there also has to be a launch of an accessory, right? Logitech moved swiftly, unveiling a new rugged keyboard case for the iPad, which you can check out below.

Dubbed “a rugged combo” this is an education oriented accessory, meant to protect the Apple slate from drops and knocks. This case can defend the iPad against drops from as high as six feet and the education focused part means that this device is meant for students, who go on field trips. Apple worked with Logitech on this product, in order to make sure it gets a secure keyboard connection and tough case.

The keyboard is supposed to offer “laptop-like typing” and it connects to the tablet via Logitech’s proprietary connector. Apple’s Education Store will be selling this product later this week. Logitech has previously created cases and keyboards for all iPad generations and they’ve been a longstanding partner for Apple. We don’t have a price for the new rugged case, but I imagine it’s below $100.

Nintendo Switch Was Supposed to Run Android, It Seems, Traces of it Exist

By Radu Iorga

Before the Nintendo Switch was officially announced, speculations ran rampant, saying that the device would run on Android, but in the end it didn’t turn out that way. Or did it? It seems that this choice was pretty close, according to a Cyanogen chairman.

The official revealed on Twitter that Nintendo contacted Cyanogen to make them a ROM, but they refused the console maker in quite violent fashion. Basically they told Nintendo to “stick it”. It seems that the Switch maker wanted a special flavour of Android, basically an Android-based OS, that would be more locked down. This goes against the principles of the platform, which angered Cyanogen.

 

Still, even now the console uses bits of Android for its platform, mixed with a custom kernel. If Nintendo was using Google’s OS, then maybe it could have included a web browser, more apps and video streaming services. There’s no way to confirm or deny these rumors, but it sure sounds like something Nintendo would do. Then again, people may have felt that the Switch was too much like an Nvidia slate if it had Android…

iPad Mini 2 Gets Discontinued

By James A.

Yesterday brought us a more affordable 9.7 inch iPad, which some say it’s sort of an iPad Air 2 Lite, but also a bumped up storage version of the iPad Mini 4. At the same time an older iPad was put to rest, the iPad Mini 2.

Also known as the iPad Mini Retina for a while, this slate has been the most affordable and reasonably powerful 7.9 inch device on the market for a few years now. I own one and I can say it can run any new iOS game like a champ. The battery is also great. The iPad Mini 2 was the first iPad Mini with a Retina Display and it debuted back in 2013.

Apple has been neglecting the smaller tablet segment, ever since the iPad Mini 3 and its introduction of Touch ID. It’s not very clear what plans Apple has for this product segment, although there were rumors that an iPad Mini Pro was in the making. If it’s real it should debut in April, or the fall with the iPhone 8/7s at the latest.

Is there still hope for a smaller powerhouse of the kind?
