Samsung takes a dig at Apple's $19 cleaning cloth with new offer

The promotion is currently live only in Germany.

What you need to know

  • Samsung is running a new promotion in Germany that takes a jab at Apple's $19 cleaning cloth.
  • The company is giving away a free cleaning cloth to the first 1,000 people who sign up for the offer.
  • It remains to be seen if Samsung will expand the offer to other countries in the future.

Apple unveiled a ton of new products at its "Unleashed" event last month, including MacBook Pro models with M1 Pro and M1 Max processors. It also announced a $19 cleaning cloth to clean your Apple products.

Samsung has now launched a new promotion that takes aim at Apple's cleaning cloth. As spotted by the folks at Galaxy Club, the promotion is now live in the Samsung Members app in Germany. The first 1,000 users who sign up for the offer will receive a free cleaning cloth for their Galaxy phone.

Samsung says the "must-have" accessory measures 20 x 20cm in size, which makes it slightly larger in size than Apple's cleaning cloth. Just like any other microfiber cloth, you can also use the Samsung cleaning cloth to clean your PC monitor or tablet.

The promotion appears to be available only in Germany right now, and it isn't clear if Samsung plans to offer its cleaning cloth to users in other countries as well.

This isn't the first time that Samsung has taken a dig at Apple. Back in 2017, the company poked fun at the iPhone X's notch. It also made fun of Apple for removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from iPhones. However, just months later, Samsung released the Galaxy Note 10 series without a headphone jack.

Samsung had even mocked Apple last year for selling the iPhone 12 series without a charger in the box. It later deleted those posts and decided not to include chargers with its best Android phones to cut costs and also "help the environment."

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1
