New Nvidia Shield TV to support Google Stadia: report

It appears Nvidia’s rumoured upcoming Shield TV refresh will be more exciting than we first thought.
The Daily Fix, citing an anonymous source, claims the new Shield TV will feature Stadia support, allowing the device to take advantage of Google’s upcoming gaming platform to stream video games.
What’s more, the website says Nvidia will launch the new Android TV device in November to coincide with the release of Stadia.
The website also reports that Nvidia plans to release a version of the Shield TV that doesn’t come with a controller in the box. Instead, this variant of the Shield TV will be compatible with the Stadia Controller, which recently went up for pre-order separate from the Founder’s Edition.
News of a new Shield TV first made its way online earlier this week. Initially, it appeared the device would represent a minor refresh, with the major upgrades being a slightly faster Tegra X1 chipset and Android 9 Pie support out of the box.

Twitter removing precise location tagging due to limited use

Twitter has announced that it is removing the ability to add a precise geotag to tweets.

Most people don't tag their precise location in Tweets, so we're removing this ability to simplify your Tweeting experience. You'll still be able to tag your precise location in Tweets through our updated camera. It's helpful when sharing on-the-ground moments.
— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) June 18, 2019
With the feature, users were able to share precise location details like longitude and latitude. The feature was originally introduced 10 years ago, with Twitter intending for it to be used as a way to discover tweets based on the location they’re sent from.
That said, Twitter will still allow users to add a precise location when taking a picture through the in-app camera feature. Further, as TechCrunch notes, users will be able to add location to tweets through i..

This could be our first look at the Nintendo Switch Mini

It looks like more fuel has been added to the ‘Switch Mini’ fire thanks to China-based accessory maker HonSon.
Backing up rumours Nintendo is working on a smaller version of the Switch that first appeared in Nikkei and The Wall Street Journal, images of a variety of accessories specifically designed for Nintendo’s still unannounced Switch Mini have appeared in the accessory manufacturer’s online store.
It’s important to keep in mind the image included in the listings could be just a mock-up of the often rumoured console. As a result, the pictures aren’t a reliable indication that a new version of the Switch is on the way.
That said, the fact that HonSon is already selling Switch Mini accessories indicates that the company likely received product size information and schematics for the new console. This is standard practice in the technology industry, particularly when it comes to smartphones.
Nintendo is rumoured to have plans to release two new versions of the Switch, with one console..
