Google leverages its AI smarts to beat Apple in the camera game

Google's "Pixel Buds" are designed for use with their Pixel 2 smartphone, which was unveiled at the conference this Wednesday along with a range of other hardware announcements. But Google's Pixel Buds could become the go-to device based on pricing and name recognition. Pixel 2 comes in two sizes, with the same great features in both.

The uncomfortable mode of Pixel 2 can be activated from this menu.

But Pixel Buds will only work on Google devices.

DxOMark has given the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL a score of 95 in exposure and contrast, 86 in colour, 98 in autofocus, 73 in texture, 59 in noise, 64 in artifacts, and 88 in flash, 32 in zoom and 45 in bokeh, taking the over image (photo) score to 99.

"We want to provide a little more information about headphone options for the Pixel 2".

Was US shooter originally targeting Las Vegas festival headlined by Lorde?
Police found the guns and ammunition in the room being used by suspected shooter Stephen Paddock at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday afternoon, sheriff Joseph Lombardo said "he had to have some help".

As reported by Android Police, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have the ability to automatically switch on Do Not Disturb when you start driving. Now, there is another good news for Pixel 2 buyers.

The Pixel is Google's flagship phone, created to show off the best possible version of the company's Android mobile operating system. At least the feature is optional so you can disable it if it's causing too many problems.

Google Clips is also one of the company's latest products. While design, stock Android OS, and cameras are among the highlights, Google also announced unlimited Photos storage for lifetime in their original resolution. The combination of optical and electronic video stabilization enables remarkably smooth video, even when you're on the move. It also has a 13-megapixel front-facing camera with soft LED flash and a secondary 2-megapixel camera. Called the Google Home Mini - which Google said is smaller than a donut - it is a rounded disk covered in the hottest new technology material: fabric.

"It's an incredible application of Google Translate powered by machine learning - it's like having a personal translator by your side", Payne said at the event. While it might seem that we have got a step closer to Star Trek's fabled universal translator, if you haven't already used Google Translate (and if you haven't, you really should) you should know that the app can already do this function anyway.

The company has also listed a set of compatible headphones, and points out "if you are looking to buy another pair of USB-C headphones that isn't on the list, please make sure they are compatible with digital audio and other standards". Well, actually just Action Launcher for now. All you supposedly need do is hold down on the right earbud and tell Google Assistant what language you want to "speak".
