🐈 Good morning and welcome to the Daily Authority on Tuesdays. I’ve spent the last few afternoons playing Spiritfarer, and it’s the perfect cozy game for the fall season. Also, the main character has a cat named Narcissus, which really seals the deal.

Battery bonus for S23 Plus, Ultra


For those who are looking forward to the Galaxy S23 series launch, which could happen sooner than expected, we have good news this morning. Galaxy S23 Plus and S23 Ultra battery info leaked, and it’s particularly great news for the Plus variant:

  • The Galaxy S22 Ultra already has a decent 5,000mAh battery.
  • However, the S22 Plus disappointed with its smaller 4,500mAh battery, a downgrade from its predecessor.
  • The S22 Plus had a nominal capacity of 4,370 mAh and a typical capacity of 4,500 mAh.
  • Good news: according to a Dutch media galactic clubIt seems that we can expect a nominal battery capacity of 4,565 mAh for the Galaxy S23 Plus and a typical capacity of 4,700 mAh.

Don’t forget the S23 Ultra

Not so good news for the Galaxy S23 Ultra:

  • The Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to have a nominal battery capacity of 4,855 mAh and a typical capacity of 5,000 mAh.
  • That’s in line with the S22 Ultra, but given that a 5,000mAh battery is big for a flagship phone, we’re pretty pleased with this news.
  • That said, the S22 Ultra’s battery life was pretty average. Hopefully Samsung will make some significant tweaks to increase battery life with the S23 Ultra.

📺 Hulu is going up in price next week: The streaming service will raise its rates on October 10, so you’ll pay $1 more per month for ad-supported plans and $2 more per month for ad-free subscriptions (the edge).

mr griff's house in the attic

I am not afraid, you are afraid. Ok, so I’m a little scared…

A Reddit user by the name of “Mr Griff” discovered the decaying remains of an old house in his attic.

  • Complete with intact windows, peeling floral wallpaper, lamps, and abandoned belongings, it looks like something straight out of a horror movie.
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre-esque abode apparently used to be a two-story building: the owners had a store on the ground floor and lived upstairs.
  • Later, the upper floor of the house was sealed and a large attic was built around it, while the ground floor was converted into a church.
  • This discovery recalls the not-too-distant history of “disappointment rooms,” a common practice in which family members (often children) with mental or physical disabilities were kept out of sight, supposedly for their own good and the good of society.
  • This practice continued well into the 20th century in the US and UK, spawning works of fiction such as Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre and the flop of the 2016 horror film The Disappointments Room.

While we’re on the topic of being scared, check out our selection of new and upcoming Halloween streaming movies and shows, plus the 11 best shows to stream this Halloween.
