Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.
We’ve seen a lot of phones leaked on Twitter lately, but Google dropping a pic of its own device months before we expect it to launch is a new twist on the genre. Also, we’re powering through to the final day of E3 2019, and it’s time to talk about Wall TVs.
After a purported render of the Pixel 4 popped up a few days ago, Google took the unusual step of directly leaking a pic of its own next phone. A tweet informed us to “wait until you see what it can do,” and if the rumors are accurate then that could refer to an embedded sensor used for advanced gesture control. For now, we’ll just feast our eyes on its frame and curious square camera array.
The Elite 85h is a well-built audio workhorse with amazing battery life and capable ANC, but the overall audio quality isn’t as good as the Sony 1000XM3.
The Wall Luxury is an even more ambitious TV designed for the poshest of abodes. It starts at ‘just’ 73 inches and 1080p, but its MicroLED panels scale all the way to 292 inches and 8K. That’s over 24 feet in the diagonal, folks. Samsung hasn’t detailed the pricing as we write this, but let’s be honest — if you need to ask, you’re probably not the target audience for this behemoth.
From July 10th, when you upload files to Drive or Photos, they won’t automatically sync to the other service. Likewise, when you delete a photo or video from Drive, it won’t be removed from Photos and vice versa.
This year’s E3 is the first time journalists and the public have been able to play with the Genesis Mini, and there are some great games baked in. Highlights include Sonic 2, Castle of Illusion, Shinobi 3, Kid Chameleon and Streets of Rage 2. The only drawback, according to Mat Smith, is that when it comes to the system’s three-button controller, “It feels cheap, lightweight, chunky and… exactly how I remember it.”
The latest update for iMovie for iOS comes with a new green screen effect, better still image support, 80 new soundtracks, graphic overlays and more.
Plenty of games let you explore an alien world. Few have the same charm and distinctive personality as Journey to the Savage Planet, though.
Typhoon Studios, a Canadian developer comprised of former Ubisoft and Electronic Arts employees, calls its game an “earnest comedy.” The team wanted to build a smaller and more light-hearted title that didn’t require hundreds of hours to complete. You might play the game for a couple of hours after work, or breeze through most of the quests over a weekend.
