Google’s NEW PHONE with special Bonus: PIXEL but not Nexus!!

Today, Google announced its brand new member – PIXEL. Google’s first software and hardware build mobile that has been in rumors since months. So this is that day! Pixel was launched during the Google Live Event that’s  happening as we post this, but you are lucky enough to get its specs –

Phone by Google – Pixel

With Pixel, they obsessed over every detail, from the industrial design to the user experience. They carefully sculpted the surfaces of the phone, and rounded the edges to make it easy to grip.

  • 2.5D Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 on the front display and back glass.
  • The aerospace grade aluminum body.
  • The glass on the back also features Pixel Imprint, our fingerprint sensor.  You can even swipe it to access your notifications.
  • BEST BATTERY –  up to seven hours in 15 minutes.




Meet personal Google Assistant

Pixel is the first phone with the Google Assistant built in. With your Assistant, you can have a natural conversation with Google to find answers or get things done on the go.

Say “Ok Google” or touch and hold the Home button and your Assistant is ready to help. Ask it for a brief update on your day or to play a video on YouTube. Look up traffic on the way home from work or when the nearest pharmacy closes.
You can even say “show me my camping photos with Andrew” and it’ll instantly display the photos you’re looking for. Your Assistant can also offer help with what’s on-screen in any app. So if your friend texts you to meet up at a new restaurant, you can just say “navigate there”.

The best smartphone camera!

The Pixel camera is not only the best smartphone camera Google ever made, it’s the highest rated smartphone camera anyone has ever made.

Their DxOMark Mobile score of 89 is a great example of what’s possible when great hardware meets great software. Pixel puts cutting-edge computational photography in an ultra-fast and easy-to-use camera.

  • Pixel has a 12.3MP camera.
  • Featuring an f/2.0 aperture and big 1.55 micron pixels to capture lots and lots of light.
  • Pixel’s camera lets you take stunning photos in low light, bright light or any light.
  • Catch action shots as they happen with Smartburst, which takes a rapid-fire sequence of shots and automatically selects the best one.
  • Use Lens Blur to achieve shallow depth of field and bokeh effects, making your subject pop.
  • You can capture dramatic landscapes or make faces glow with new exposure controls.

And as a special bonus for Pixel owners, we’re including free unlimited storage for original quality photos and videos at full resolution in Google Photos.

Google suspends Project Ara DIY smartphone

Google suspends Project Ara DIY smartphone

 Google has suspended work on Project Ara, its modular smartphone.

The project, which the company launched in 2013. was designed to let users buy a basic phone and add different modules like a keyboard or other sensors,

Google had announced during its developer conference I/O in May, its intentions to have a developer version ready to ship in the autumn.

It will now concentrate on its other phones, tablets and other hardware lines, reports Reuters.

Project delays

Project Ara has suffered numerous setbacks since it began life as a Motorola venture, which Google owned before later selling.

The idea was to create a smartphone which could be customised to owners’ tastes with interchangeable “modules” including screens, cameras and processors.

In 2014, a trial was announced in Puerto Rico, centred around providing buyers with a smartphone frame and a range of 20 to 30 clip-on modules.

However, this pilot scheme was delayed and eventually cancelled last year, with the team blaming “lots of iterations” in the design.

In May this year, Google said a new version of the modular phone would be less customisable than originally planned.

The main display and processors could no longer be swapped – a redesign Google said offered more space for other parts with more unusual functions.

Modular handsets

Modular phones could help consumers upgrade their handset without having to buy an entirely new model, as well as reducing technological waste.

However, the individual components are expensive to manufacture.

LG released the modular LG G5 phone earlier this year to a lukewarm response.

On launch it only supported two additional modules – a high-definition audio processor and a camera grip. The battery can also be exchanged, but doing so causes the phone to reboot.

“Project Ara went against every lesson the smartphone market has learnt over the years, eliminating the removable battery for example,” says Ian Fogg, senior director of mobile and telecoms at analysts IHS.

“The original concept of making all modules user-changeable is an incredibly hard thing to do.

“By redesigning it so only certain modules were swappable dramatically simplified the project, but it undermined the point of how important swapping those bits out was to the consumers. It went right against every bit of industry wisdom.”

HoloVit let you watch and create holograms at home

HoloVit let you watch and create holograms at home

Remember that time CNN made Wolf Blitzer talk to a hologram of Jessica Yellin which made America ask the question, why would we ever need holograms? No? Blocked it out? Well lucky for you, a company called HoloVit wants to reinvigorate that nightmare give you the ability to watch and create holograms in your home.

The HoloVit is a hologram kit that supposedly lets you watch holograms using your smartphone, tablet, or laptop with an additional screen, although it is very light on technical details. According to the company, you can “watch hundreds of online videos as hologram shows” although it doesn’t say where those videos came from. HoloVit says it’s also building a holographic game, and you can create your own holograms, using a recording set featuring giant black tarp that looks very professional.

HoloVit

Does all of this sound dubious? Totally. The Indiegogo page is very light on any kind of specifications as to how this will work, other than this totally reassuring sentence:

After recording the video, face the HoloVit screen toward your tablet or smartphone and play the video. This creates a hologram.

Given the lack of details, anyone who backs this product is buying into this crowdfunding campaign essentially on faith (or more faith than usual). But who knows, maybe HoloVit is like the also-secretive company Palantir and will end up turning into a Silicon Valley darling.

Or not. Probably not.

Nextbit’s Robin now in spicy red

Nextbit’s Robin now in spicy red

We figured a red Nextbit would be announced sometime soon, and today we got our confirmation. The company behind the Robin phone (still so pretty!) confirmed that a red version of the phone will go on sale today on Nextbit.com. This summer “ember” edition will cost $299. The specs of the phone remain the same as the original device that came out earlier this year.

Nextbit is also releasing a software update to its beta users that will let them store videos in the cloud, just as they do with photos. A broader August update will include Android security patches and thermal tuning that will keep the phone cooler.

How to download iOS 10 Public Beta today-Explained!

In addition to the macOS Sierra Public Beta with Siri, you can now try out iOS 10, too — but beware the beta.

Via Apple’s Public Beta portal, iOS 10 can be found in public preview for all users. Just keep in mind that it’s very beta, so it’s best left to devices that you don’t use daily (like an old iPhone).

You’ll have to sign up for Apple’s Beta Software Program, which registers your Apple ID. There’s also a long waiver (which you won’t read) essentially saying that you’re downloading beta software, so don’t get huffy if your phone doesn’t work normally.

From there, you’ll have to register your device in the program, which is as simple as heading to Continue reading “How to download iOS 10 Public Beta today-Explained!”
