The vast majority of phones and banks now support contactless payments, but to the annoyance of many, many small traders still only accept cash.
This is beginning to change however, with cheap accessories like the Square reader, and now Samsung is offering an app which does away with even that accessory, using the built-in NFC in your Samsung phone.

It uses Samsung’s Knox feature for security and is supported on the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, Note8, S9, S9+, Note9, S10, S10e, S10+ and at present only appears to be available in Canada. Mastercard and Visa are both accepted, with the main limitation likely being the $100 cap on each transaction.GALLERY

Editing HTML Like A Boss In VS Code
Here’s a seven minute video from Caleb Porzio that focuses on some of Emmet‘s HTML editing features. You might think of Emmet as that thing that expands abbreviations like
table.stats>tr*3>td*3 into glorious, expanded, and perfect HTML. But Emmet has other HTML editing trickery up its sleeve. My favorite is “wrap with abbreviation” (which happens to be
A on CodePen), but there are more, like expanding your selection inward and outward and tag changing.
If you haven’t seen it, the Emmet 2 preview on CodePen is pretty neeeeat. It shows you what you’re about to expand into before you do it:
PS5 Game Install Sizes Revealed, And They’re Enormous
There was hope that the efficiency of the PlayStation 5’s super-fast SSD hard drive would reduce game file sizes, as titles wouldn’t need to duplicate data to ease read speeds. That, apparently, is not quite the case, as the minimum install requirements for a couple of PS5 launch games have been revealed – and they’re enormous.
Demon’s Souls, for example, will eat up 66GB of the next-gen system’s storage space; Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will gobble up 50GB, and if you plump up for the Ultimate Edition – which includes Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered as well – you’ll lose an eye-watering 105GB. That’s already an eighth of the device’s available 825GB.
It’s worth noting that textures will be more detailed on the PS5, so developers may well be saving space compared to PS4 titles, but using it up with higher quality assets. In the case of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered, for example, the original game with all of its DLC installed takes up approximately 75GB on the PS4, compared to roughly 55GB in its revamped form.
Still, it looks like you’re definitely going to have to juggle which games you’ve got installed – although eventually you will be able to expand the system’s storage space. You can find out more about that through the following link: Which SSD Drives Will Be Compatible with PS5?
