To the max
If you’re in the Google services fan club, start saving because they dropped a new smart speaker dubbed the Google Home Max cranks it up. $399 for a loud speaker with some smarts built in.
Capture the moment
Would you clip a camera to your shirt or jacket so it can randomly take pictures when it thinks it’s a good moment? I don’t know either. The Google Clip is that camera and they’re betting there’s a market for a $250 clip on camera. The fact it chooses when and what to capture on its own is creepy cool.
A better pixel
It’s like Google was pissed off at bezels because the Pixel 2 XL almost forgot them. $649 for the Pixel 2 and $849 for the Pixel 2 XL.
Unlimited photo storage until the end of 2020
Let me translate that for you
(Inserts Google Pixel Buds into ears). $159 for real-time translations in your ear. This is how Google will beat Apple in hardware, a single trojan horse like this product. What google has that Apple doesn’t? AI assets from it’s years of search development as well as the HTC engineering team it just bought. Sure these things look like shit but who cares, anyone with an androind phone are going to want these.
Sounds like a human
Google’s AI can almost perfectly mimic human speech. This is great news because I hate directions being read to me by a emotionless robot.
The mini is confirmed
$49 and it’ll be sitting on my desk as soon as it’s available. If it works as advertised it’ll make its way to my kitchen and patio. It’s cute, cloth covered, and small enough to not make a scene.
Wally world in da house
In August, Google announced further partnership with Walmart that will allow Google Home users to shop for more than 2M products from Walmart all from the comfort of their Home. The service is live and users will get a $25 credit on their first purchase. Let’s hope they can put some pressure on Amazon.
Pixelbook is refreshed
I’ve never seen one of these in the wild, probably because it’s a $1000 chrome OS laptop. Sure it’s premium, and a very handsome Facebook machine but I still have a hard time understanding who this is for… (dumb rich and curious)
