Google Pixel 2 is no doubt the highlight of Google’s October 4 event, but apart from the drool worthy smartphone, Google has also announced several noteworthy gadgets and these include a mini version of Google Home called, well, Google Home Mini, a super sized Google Home called Max, a new Pixelbook, an updated Daydream View, as well as a thing called Google Clips, which is basically a very tiny camera that’s designed to seamlessly pipe clips to your phone. The latter is probably a ‘test’ gadget before Google decides if it is here to stay like the Google Home. Continue reading New Gadgets From Google To Coax Money Out Of Your Wallet
There is little doubt that Google is onboard the trend train set by leading mobile phone makers. With the newest Pixel phone, it has caught up with edge-to-edge display and at the same time, the company’s first wireless earbuds appeared to have taken a leaf out from Apple’s book. I am no iSheep, but that’s the fact. However, at least the Mountain View search giant’s variety, called Google Pixel Buds, is hell less of an eyesore compared to Apple’s weird dangling stick earbuds. Google chose to take cue from the industry with its Pixel-branded earbuds. Continue reading Google’s Wireless Earbuds Is Corded, But Clearly Less Uglier Than AirPods

The denim jacket you see is from denim apparel maker, Levi’s. It may not look like much, but it could very well be the most high-tech jacket after the real-life Marty McFly’s self-drying jacket. Called Commuter Trucker Jacket with Jacquard, this outwear is the first product to feature Jacquard technology, a connected apparel platform developed by Google ATAP (Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group).

Our favorite mad garage inventor, British plumber-turned-YouTube-inventing-celebrity, Colin Furze, is back and this time, he have received a special request from Google. The search giant wanted the madcap inventor to create something which could be used to advertise the Mountain View tech company’s search. In other words, the creation should be usable as a vehicle to promote using the products from Google’s advertisers and for companies to use them to sell. For a man who has an insatiable appetite to create, it is only natural for Furze to take up the challenge. Continue reading Madcap Inventor Show You How To Make A Jacuzzi On Wheels… With BBQ
When it comes to mobile phone color, I usually would abstain from white. Not because it is easily dirtied, but because with a white device, more often than not, it will be paired with a white front which, IMHO, upsets the color balance since the display is black when not turned on. However, I might just change my stance if this is what a white Google Pixel 2 will look like. In the latest leak posted by Droid Life, the purported white Google Pixel 2 features a white majority back matched to a black glass section and surprisingly, it comes with a dash of orange… on the power button. Continue reading Latest Google Pixel Phone Leak Had Me Drooling Over The White Version
We usually don’t do rumors and if we did, it is almost always about Apple iPhone, but looking at how the smartphone industry have shifted so far, you know, Google getting into the hardware making itself, we think it is time that we dish out some rumors on the upcoming Google Pixel 2. Anywho, what you see here is a render based on the rumors and leaks that have been floating around the Internet over the last couple of months, courtesy of Android Police.

Well, what do you know? Using your phone’s camera is going to even more fulfilling soon. No. We are not talking about new selfie technology that will make you look prettier (although that can be deemed fulfilling too); it is a lot more than that. It is a new vision-based computing capability found in a new initiative called Google Lens. Notice how Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai never refer Google Lens to as a product, but an initiative at this year’s Google I/O? And that kind of make me skeptical, but more on why later. Now, on why Google Lens is awesome. Continue reading Google Lens And WorldSense Standalone VR Headsets Announced
It makes sense to want to integrate Augmented Reality on glasses, but a video camera on the bill of an otherwise ordinary hat? Now, that sounds kind of goofy, but that doesn’t stop Internet search giant, Google, from going ahead and hat it patented. And guess what? They actually got it (the patent) and why the hell not? Because, who in the world would patent a hat with a video camera stuck to the bill? I don’t know. Maybe, Google? According to a report, Google managed to secure the patent on Tuesday (February 28, 2017) for a removable hat-mounted camera (officially “Wearable camera systems”). What the camera can do needs no further elaboration. Continue reading Google Granted Patent For Video Camera-equipped Hat. Wait, What?!

Tech staff: “Alright, zooming in.”
Detective: “There! He is the guy we are after!”
If the above scenario sounds familiar, it is because similar scenario has been on countless TV shows and Hollywood movies, and both you and I know it ain’t true. This scenario only exists in a perfect world, which for the record, ours isn’t it. All those zoom-in-and-still-clear-as-day resolution images depicted in TV shows and movies are nothing more than a tech fantasy.
