    Galaxy Note 10 Plus review: the luxury phone

    (slow music) This is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus. You know the Note, right? It was the first big phone, but now every phone is big. Then, it was the most powerful big phone. But nearly all big Android phones have really great specs now. So what’s left for the Note? Samsung will tell you that there are a bunch of things. But really, there’s just one thing: the S Pen, the stylus. See, the Note starts at $1,100, which is hundreds of dollars more than comparable phones, even phones that Samsung makes.

    Galaxy Buds review: everything but the basics

REP was conceived back in 1994 by a Dutch software engineer Martijn Koster, and today it is the de facto standard used by websites to instruct crawlers. Googlebot crawler scours the robots.txt file to…
