One of the biggest arms races for smartphones in the last couple of years, and easily the biggest area of improvement, has been the camera . Apart from the latest models running on Android OS, Android P, Google has also included hardware-based security in the form of the Titan M Security chip, which is better than Google Pixel 2 series and has added more LTE bands for better usage, including support band LTE band 71 for Pixel 3 .
At its hardware event in NY on Tuesday, Google launched its 2018 flagship Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. Google has confirmed previous reports , affirming its new Pixel 3 and 3XL smartphones will only feature gesture-based navigation controls.
Google's official United Kingdom storefront now lists two different versions of the Pixelbook pen and the new one looks a lot like another product we are expecting to see next week in NY. Pixel's end-of-the-year product cycle will again put it under a severe disadvantage over other flagships that featured earlier this year. The phones will come in black or white and the white version could have a green power button, giving it a new look.
Today, serial leaker Evan Blass shared the best shot yet of the new Pixel Slate tablet, including the keyboard case it will likely ship with. Again. The Google Home Hub will set you back $149.99. Leaked images suggest it's more or less what you'd expect: a large tablet strapped to a speaker.

With disappointing sales figures since HomePod was released February 9, Apple may be looking at broadening the range to appeal to more price-conscious consumers. However there is no such confirmation yet. But the Touch Bar has been widely regarded as an inessential feature that increases the price of the MacBook by an additional $300.
Apple also tailored the new iOS to be able to get you complete weekly reports of how you use your device, what sends you notifications , what time you spent on different apps, among other thorough statistics. Meanwhile in January, two of Apple's major shareholders, Jana Partners LLC and the California State Teachers' Retirement System, who own a $US2 billion stake in Apple, published an open letter asking the company to address the issue of phone addiction among children.

As we saw in the game's "multiplayer reveal" trailer , there are health bars (!) and health regeneration won't be automatic. You read that right - this one's all about the multiplayer.

Players will have access to mechanics, weaponry, and killstreaks from previous games such as the RC-XD and what makes this probably the most unique...

We're guaranteed to find out more about the title there. With so many post-apocalyptic works in the ecosystem, it will be a welcome take.

The great thing about Mother's Day is that it always falls on a Sunday which for most of us means that we're not working. More than 100 years later, the public view of Mother's Day might stray from what the late Anna Jarvis envisioned when she started the Mother's Day movement.
The ethical conundrum When making the hair appointment for Lisa, the Assistant never tells the salon employee that she's speaking to a robot.

The Explore page will feature buttons at the top of the page that are labeled by interest, which users can swipe through to view more tabs. The users can also minimise the video screen during a conversation and continue to chat while browsing the app.
There are also updates for the Gmail mobile apps, including high priority notifications to help you to focus on what needs to be dealt with first . But wait-this is not possible to do with regular emails, so how does Gmail enforce this confidentiality with emails sent to people who aren't themselves using Gmail ? The ability to forward, copy, download, or print messages can also be removed.
Zia will have several deals and special items on Record Store Day , with some proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Clubs. "It's a good thing, Record Store Day ... Lo-fi king Mac Demarco has two separate records up for grabs and of course you can't miss indie classics from the likes of Wolf Alice and The Courteeners; they're essentials to any collection and we're not against fighting to get our hands on them!

What's particularly striking about the experience is how well done the storytelling is. Nope! You can grab it if you have the XP, it's just showing you how strong the attack will be with your current stats, and how likely its additional bonuses are to be activated when the skill is used.
Google is great at so many things, but one thing that eludes them is having a proper chatting app. Hangouts is not that popular, they killed off Google Buzz years ago and now Allo might be following suit. Duo is a video chat app, while Allo was a text messaging service. The major advantage of sticking to Android Messages is because it comes pre-installed on nearly all Android devices by default.
Sen. Lindsey Graham pitched a rare hardball question to Zuckerberg Tuesday: Is Facebook a monopoly? The 33-year-old CEO was put on the spot and at times he looked vulnerable as well . With profiling questions coming to the fore lately, Fraser took the opportunity a couple of weeks ago to download his Facebook data. "There is nothing that prevents a political party in Canada from using Facebook or any other advertising platform to micro-target people".
Super Mario Brothers and Street Fighter: The Movie had wildly convoluted plots to justify the adaptation. And anyway, this is no mere refit of San Andreas . Plenty of movies have dredged up our anxieties of death and destruction in American cities since 2001, but few have re-created them with such faithfulness, and even fewer in service of a giant flying wolf.
Epic said at first, "We have identified an issue with our email service becoming backlogged". We apologize for this inconvenience. The servers for the online game have been taken offline by developer Epic Games-and there's no indication as to when they'll be back up.
