The former comes to mind when you see the shape of the console with its 7” HD touchscreen, the latter is reminded of by the supported game library. Still, the console has a very original, recognizable style, with controls integrated on both sides of the screen and the overall design a bit futuristic.

In iOS 14.5, users for the first time got an option to block tracking within any single app. Now Google follows the same route with its mobile platform.
