Verizon Google Pixel 2 XL discounted by $300 at Best Buy

Among the new devices, there were two new Google Pixel 3 smartphones, the Pixel Slate tablet, and a new Google home hub. Google has announced some interesting new software features that will help further improve camera performance on Pixel 3 and 3 XL, and, in particular, it was tested earlier this week.

Among other things, Pixel 3 can answer phone calls on its own, inquire about the nature of the call, and inform the user through text (this feature will be available initially only on devices that will be released in the US). There's a trick behind it. Also launching later this year, those using the Pixel in New York, Atlanta, Phoenix and San Francisco/Bay Area, will be able to use the Google Assistant Duplex technology to book a reservation at a restaurant. This will allow the Assistant to interact with the caller to find out what they want. The Pixel 3 starts at £739 and the Pixel 3 XL costs at least £869, both depending on whether you choose 64GB or 128GB of storage, but even the most capacious XL is more affordable than the cheapest iPhone XS. So they still look normal. The latest tidbit reveals some of the changes made to Google Assistant Button through Pie 9 update. Something that was not good for many.

As expected the Pixel 3 doesn't sport a headphone jack and you need to rely on USB-C for your music and charging needs. You can easily hide it on the device and use it as a full-screen phone.

OPEC cuts forecast for global oil demand growth in 2019
Before the re-imposition of USA sanctions, Iran was India's third-largest oil supplier behind Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Wednesday's cuts represent about 6.5 percent of the nation's daily output of 11.1 million barrels of crude.

This video by reclusive filmmaker Terrence Malick showcases the stabilization built into this device. the video includes a lot of close-ups and the camera never seems to stop moving, yet everything does stay sharp.

The Google Pixel is slightly larger overall.


"Super Res Zoom" will give you better close-up photos without losing the detail. These Duplex features are definitely USA only (for now at least) coming to the Pixel 3 first, with the Pixel 1 and 2 getting access in November.

Djokovic outguns Anderson in Shanghai
Anderson had a chance to take an early lead against Djokovic but he overhit a forehand on set point in the 12th game of the match. The other semi-final tees up Novak Djokovic against young German star Alexander Zverev , just the second time they will have met.

Both phones represent a melding of a front and rear glass panel with an aluminium frame. It should be said, of course, that the Pixel 3 does have the superior front sensor-a dual-lens 8MP camera. The Pixel 3 will have a new chip, called Titan, to store keys to the most sensitive information, including those needed to unlock the phone and descramble stored data.

The iPhone XR has a 7-megapixel selfie camera that takes advantage Apple's True Depth camera system.
