Google Pixel 2, one year later review: Ancient-looking powerhouse

The Pixel 2’s design hasn’t aged gracefully, but everything else has.

Google’s Pixel 3 series is nearly upon us, and when the new phones are announced on Tuesday, they’ll be replacing the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL from last year. Before that happens, I want to take a look back at the former of those two devices and see how the regular Pixel 2 is holding up a year after it was first released.

Google Pixel 2 XL, one year later review: The most consistent flagship

A year old, and a year better.

The Pixel 2 phones were announced close to a year ago, with few substantial changes from the 2016 Pixels. Despite some early teething issues with the Pixel 2 XL’s screen, the phones have proven to be solid choices for anyone buying a phone in most of 2018. But competition hasn’t stood still in the last year, and we’re close to seeing the Pixel 3. How well have the phones stood  [Read More…]

Sony won’t host a PlayStation Experience this year

This is rather surprising to say the least.

Every year, Sony hosts an event called the PlayStation Experience where the company reveals new games and other details about upcoming projects. It’s become somewhat of a tradition that even Xbox One owners have been urging Microsoft to adopt. Unfortunately, there won’t be a PlayStation Experience this year.

Today, on the PlayStation Blogcast, Sony Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden announced its cancellation. According to a report by Polygon,  [Read More…]

No, Google won’t be releasing a Pixel Watch this year

Instead, Google’s focusing on helping third-party brands with their own watches.

Ever since a rumor surfaced this past May, it’s been expected that Google would debut its first Pixel-branded smartwatch alongside the Pixel 3 this fall (a Pixel Watch, if you will). Recent developments in Wear OS have led us to believe that 2018 would finally be the year, and now…

… it’s been confirmed that there is no Pixel Watch.

During IFA in Berlin, Tom’s Guide  [Read More…]

Bad news watch fans, no Pixel Watch this year

With all the work Google has been putting into Wear OS previously Android Wear year after year, they have yet to put out an official branded watch. Over the years, Google has put out phones, tablets, Chromebooks, and smart speakers. Still, here we are in 2018 and there has been no official smartwatch from Google.

As a big fan of smartwatches myself, I have anxiously been awaiting the release of a Pixel Watch. Unfortunately, it looks like I and everyone  [Read More…]

Eletrolux announces Google Assistant support for smart ovens early next year

What’s the point of a smart home if Google Assistant support isn’t available? Is a product truly “smart” if you can’t tell your Google Home to control it?

Existentialism aside, Electrolux announced that future smart ovens will feature Google Assistant support. While the smart-ifying of common household appliances is often frowned upon (as they get more complicated, more annoying, less secure, and potentially even less reliable), this one makes sense.

How many times have you left the house and realized you  [Read More…]

A Bloomberg article about the upcoming Apple iPhone launch dropped a little Pixel knowledge on us today. According to the article the Pixel 3 launch event will take place on October 9 at a media event in New York City.

There are several reasons this is news. The first being that no official statement has been given about when or where the Pixel 3 phones will launch. The second reason would be this bucks the trend of the previous Pixel  [Read More…]

Sorry, a Moto Z3 Force is not coming this year

Motorola unveiled the Moto Z3 yesterday, but instead of getting fans excited, it caused quite a disappointment.  Except for the 5G Mod, the Moto Z3 represents a minimal upgrade over last year’s Moto Z2. It’s even powered by the same processor, the Snapdragon 835 and costs less than the middle-range Moto Z3 Play ($ 499 vs $ 480).

But it’s okay. A more powerful Moto Z3 Force is coming, right? A flagship to compete with the likes of the Samsung  [Read More…]
