Tonight’s Second Video Worth Sharing: Google Pixel 3 XL Review: The Smartphone Camera King

By Tim

Tonight’s second video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the Google Pixel 3XL.

The Google Pixel 3 XL comes with many great flagship specs, but primarily it is the camera that simply blows the competition away.

This is certainly a top notch phone, although far out of my price range, but this is still a great review!

So of course they will be folks who disagree and yes the price is outrageous but it comes with all the extra’s that Apple charges extra for such as a fast charger, the USB to headphone dongle and a set of headphones!

As usual make sure to visit Andrew’s channel and subscribe for more great info!

Let us proceed now to that video!

Pixel Slate review: Paying the “Google” premium for Chrome OS

Pixel Slate review: Paying the “Google” premium for Chrome OS

Google spent a lot of time and effort trying to convince everyone that Chrome OS isn’t just for laptops. The fruits of the company’s labor have been slowly revealing themselves over the past year through software updates and the few Chrome OS tablets that are already available.

But Google officially ushered in the era of the Chrome OS tablet with its own Pixel Slate, which it announced last month alongside the Pixel 3 smartphone. The first Google-made tablet in three years is now available for purchase. And you can think of the Pixel Slate as a not-so-distant cousin of the company’s premium Chromebook, the Pixelbook, in that it appeals to those who have chosen Chrome OS as their primary operating system and demand only the highest-quality hardware for it.

The Pixelbook, while certainly the most Googley Chromebook, has proven to be only one of the best Chromebooks available. Similarly, the Pixel Slate has a lot of things going for it—namely its chic design, support for powerful Intel processors, and a bunch of storage and memory—but it falls into the same traps as the Pixelbook did regarding productivity and price.

Google And ASUS Launch The $85 Chromebit, A Chrome OS Desktop On An HDMI Stick

By Frederic Lardinois

DSC04017

Earlier this year, Google and ASUS announced the Chromebit — a full Chrome OS-based computer on an HDMI stick. Today, the two companies are officially launching this new way of using Chrome OS on any screen with an HDMI port. The $85 Chromebit is a 75 gram (or 2.6 ounces) stick that you can plug into any HDMI port — whether that’s a regular computer screen or that large TV… Read More

Google Search Gets New Tablet Interface, Now With More Cards

By Radu Iorga

Google Search has quietly been updated, in its tablet version, or better said its UI has been revamped. Up until now the layout felt like a combo of the mobile and desktop versions. Google made the launch without a big fuss about it.

The tablet view that debuted at the end of this week, uses card-like results, it’s more clean and clear and better spaced. The top navigation bar is slimmer and there’s a lot of white space to the left and right of search results. The main categories like “Web”, “News”, “Videos” or “Images” remain unchanged. When local results pop up, they take the whole screen apparently.

 

Below (last two images) you can see the old version of the search results, that felt a bit crowded and not very comfy to press especially on a smaller slate. Google was contacted and asked about the change and they said that they “began rolling out a new tablet Search results page, bringing the best of Google Search to tablets” this week. I guess that one day we’ll only have to rely on Google Now alone…

Android 6.0 re-implements mandatory device encryption for new devices

By Andrew Cunningham

(credit: Google)

Shortly after the announcement of iOS 8 in 2014, Google made headlines by saying that it would make full-device encryption mandatory for new Android devices running version 5.0. It then made more headlines several months later when we discovered that the company backed down, “strongly recommending” that Android device makers enable encryption but stopping short of actually requiring it.

Now Google has published an updated version of the Android Compatibility Definition Document (PDF) for Android 6.0, and it looks like mandatory encryption is back with a couple of exceptions. New devices that come with Marshmallow and have AES crypto performance above 50MiB-per-second need to support encryption of the private user data partition (/data) and the public data partition (/sdcard).

The relevant portion of the document, emphasis ours:
