Why get the Samsung S Pen for the Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphone?

When you think of the Samsung S Pen, you traditionally think of Samsung Galaxy tablets and the Note line, which the Pen has historically been used with. But S Pen support for the S21 Ultra smartphone has opened up a whole new world of possibilities, and marked the first time Samsung is offering support for the stylus outside of its popular Note series.

The S Pen helps with everything from jotting down notes to sketching, providing the benefit of better precision than you'd get from a fingertip. It's also helpful for more easily and smoothly navigating websites and documents, selecting items, and more from the phone's generously sized screen.

There are a lot of other cool things you can do with an S Pen. However, keep in mind that not all of the S Pen functions that work on a Galaxy Note device will work on the Ultra S21, including those that require Bluetooth support, like gesture features for controlling slideshows and skipping songs. But for navigating menus, writing things down, taking notes, or making sketches, an S Pen is a valuable tool to accompany the S21 Ultra smartphone. And it's worth grabbing one of the best S Pen cases to go along with it. We love Spigen's case in this regard, thanks to how seamlessly it integrates the Pen into the side, along with Spigen's reputation for quality. But there are other options worth considering, too, and some accessory kits that will help prolong the lifespan of the Pen so you can use it for years to come.

With that said, if you don't necessarily need a case that integrates an S Pen holder, there are plenty of other Galaxy S21 Ultra cases from which to choose.

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop

When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G
