Google Assistant is present along with a launcher that's made for a touch screen, but you still get the desktop version of websites so it still works as a bona fide productivity machine. And, of course, Google is using AI to do other fancy things like screen incoming calls and provide a transcript on the screen in real time. It comes in three colors-Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua, and Sand.

If you don't want to buy from Verizon, you can buy the phones unlocked directly from Google or other select retailers for use on almost any American carrier. The primary aim of the Hub is to control your smart home with a single device. It even wakes you up gradually with a smart alarm clock feature and connects to your Google Home devices and Nest devices to work as a pocket-sized hub for your house. Google is calling it a "Molecular Display". It's essentially a speaker with a 7-inch tablet screen on the front that runs a variant of the Google Assistant Smart Display software launched earlier this year. In addition, Google will debut Titan Security for phones and Duplex with this third-generation line. This feature will initially be available later this year in New York, Atlanta, Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area to help people book restaurant reservations and will roll out to other USA cities in the future.

So, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are clearly simply refinements of what's come before. A separate stylus, the same one from the Pixelbook, is also available for $99. The Pixel Slate calls for $599 (about £459, AU$847) before asking for another $199 (about £152, AU$281) for the Pixel Slate Keyboard cover. Inside, you have your choice of an Intel Celeron, M3, Core i5, or Core i7 with 4, 8, or 16GB of RAM.

Borderlands 2 VR Heading To PlayStation VR in December 2018
Perhaps the biggest change, however, is that Borderlands 2 VR will be exclusively a single-player game, with no co-op being offered.

From left - the Google HomeHub, Pixel Slate tablet and Pixel 3 phone. On Monday it announced both the data breach and the closure of Google+ over the next 10 months, putting an end to the not-so-popular social network. There's no Bluetooth but just Wi-Fi 802.11ac. However, the latter feature won't launch until later this year. Whether or not you're a user of Google+, the fact that the company made a decision to withhold the information should give you pause, and force you to consider if you can depend on Google to notify you if or when even more serious data breaches occur. But if youre going to buy a Pixel 3 or 3 XL, you might want to just grab the Pixel Stand instead – thats Googles official wireless charger. Both phones have high-end specs including a Snapdragon 845, 4GB of RAM, and 64 or 128GB of storage. They're both basically like any other tablet, with smoothed aluminum casings and fingerprint readers for security.

The Pixel 3 has an FHD+ flexible OLED display at 443ppi, whereas the larger one sports a QHD+ OLED display (with a notch) at 523ppi. There is no headphone jack again on either of these two devices.

Liu pitches the Pixel Slate as having the "best of both worlds" when it comes to both mobile and desktop computing. The Pixel Slate uses a similar proprietary method to all the rest with magnetized pins, but the screen seems to slide all over the display when in this use case.

Kerr gets ejected from preseason game on goal
There was as much a sense of relief that they'd gotten the job done as there was pure joy for winning the championship again. Kerr dished out a few high fives on his way off the floor and took off for the locker room.

The Google Home Hub is available in four colours (grey, pink, white and turquoise) and will be available for pre-order on 22nd October for $149.

Ryan Reith, who leads device research at tech consulting firm IDC, said Google did not change enough in the Pixel 3 for it to stand apart from more well-known competitors.

Anti-feminist #HimToo movement hilariously backfires with viral meme
The hashtag #HimToo was first used for men who came forward to say they were victims of sexual misconduct, the magazine noted. When you take an overbearing mother and then factor in this insane divided political landscape, however, anything goes.
