This week’s top news include reports that Netflix may acquire Roku, the June 2022 feature drop for Pixel phones, the FCC’s expected approval of the Chromecast HD, and more.
A recent article claims that among Roku staff members, speculations have been circulating that the firm would be purchased by the dominant streaming service Netflix. A $13 billion buyout would apparently be necessary, but it would give the service a solid foundation in the hardware industry.
It certainly makes perfect sense for Netflix to acquire Roku in the competitive streaming industry of today. Roku has apparently been hunting for a purchase for years, and since both businesses are struggling as a result of heightened competition, they can greatly support one another.
This week, Google released an update for all Pixel phones that included all the improvements from the June Pixel Feature Drop. Digital vaccination cards, At a Glance updates, and a new tool for making music videos are all part of this release. Our Damien Wilde has put together an excellent summary of all that is new.

The same stock problems, though, are plaguing Motorola MA1 at Best Buy , just like they do for Amazon and Target. At the time we published this article, the product was completely out of stock, however it was recently available. The product was has been in stock as of June 3 for at least an hour, which surpasses the few seconds that other vendors are able to achieve. But the pent-up demand caused even that to swiftly run out.
Apple highlighted the new features fans can anticipate from iOS 16 during its WWDC event this week. We examined some of these iOS 16 upgrades in further detail and contrasted them with features that have already been available in Android.
