These screen protectors will keep your new Galaxy S21 FE screen safe

Like the original S21, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE features a flat screen, 120Hz refresh rate, and the brilliantly bright colors of a Samsung-tuned AMOLED display. Nothing would break my heart more than seeing such a beautiful screen shattered and spiderwebbed, and that's why the best Galaxy S21 FE screen protectors — especially tempered glass ones — are essential. We've rounded the best of them, so please, let's keep your screen safe.

Easy-read films

Guard your cameras

Spigen Glas.tR Optik Tempered Glass Camera Lens Protector (2-Pack)

Invest in proper protection for your Galaxy S21 FE

If you break, crack, scratch, shatter, or otherwise damage your phone screen, your shiny new flagship turns into a low-profile paperweight. We avoid this with two things: a wonderful, protective case and a sturdy screen protector. Thanks to the popularity of the Samsung S20 FE, we have plenty of excellent options available for the Galaxy S21 FE right out of the gate.

ZAGG and OtterBox are offering great name-brand protection, with the InvisibleShield Glass Elite offering a ClearPrint coating that helps fingerprints dissipate and keep your glass pristine, a tall feat these days as we spend more and more time on our phones. Installation is also easier than ever and no one is more grateful for that than I am.

Tempered glass makes for the best Galaxy S1 FE screen protectors

There are two main types of screen protectors: tempered glass and plastic films. Plastic films used to be all we had to choose from, but these days tempered glass screen protectors are plentiful and popular. Why? Impact absorption.

Quick physics lesson: If your phone falls face-first on the ground, the kinetic energy built up by the drop gets transmitted into the ground through the surface of the phone that makes contact. That kinetic energy combined with the ripples and flexes caused by the force of the fall is what makes screens break, and PET films are too thin to absorb that force.

Tempered glass screen protectors, on the other hand, have more mass and often the same hardness as the screen. So when the phone falls, the kinetic force breaks the tempered glass screen protector — but leaves the original glass underneath intact and operating. We sacrifice the replaceable glass to save the important glass and digitizer underneath

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
