For the past couple of years, I’ve been a mostly happy Pixel 2 XL user, after jumping over from an iPhone 6. advertisement advertisement The camera has held up so well that Google barely changed it in last year’s Pixel 3. Google Assistant is faster and more capable than Siri, and its integration with Google Photos means that the Google-powered Lenovo Smart Display in our kitchen is always up to date with new pictures of the kids. Being confident that I’ll get access to new versions of Android without delay is also a nice perk. And I even enjoy the new gesture navigation system in Android 10 despite the fact that it shamelessly rips off the iPhone. Yet whenever I tell people that I enjoy using Android more than Apple’s iOS, it’s always with the qualification that I’m only talking about phones. On every other surface—from tablets and smartwatches to streaming TV players and VR—Android seems to be in disarray, with no clear … [Read more...] about The new Pixel is the iPhone’s peer.

Uber is slowly rebuilding its reputation after ousting CEO Travis Kalanick who built a successful but hostile corporate culture. The company has released ads with new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi riding an Uber to promote a fresh start. And now, through a rebranding led by global brand consultancy Wolff Olins, we’re seeing what Uber looks like if it’s not built upon the iconography of Silicon Valley bravado, but a new set of ideals: safety, accessibility, and global ambitions. advertisement advertisement “In the U.S., it’s like the cola wars,” says Forest Young, creative director at Wolff Olins, of the competition between Uber and Lyft to be American consumers’ No. 1 pick for ride sharing. “Unfortunately, with all the communications being so focused on this competitive mind-set, a lot of people are blind to the impact of Uber in other parts of the world.

“Trucks have been the same for a very long time,” said Elon Musk as he unveiled Tesla’s latest offering on Thursday night: the Cybertruck, an electric pickup truck that is barely recognizable as a truck. “We wanted to do something different.” advertisement Built with a stainless steel exoskeleton—strong enough that a sledgehammer bounced off the door during a demonstration on stage, and Musk showed a video of a bullet bouncing off the steel in another test—the highest-end version of the truck can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in as little as 2.9 seconds and tow more than 14,000 pounds. (A separate test on stage, meant to demonstrate that the car’s transparent metal glass was unbreakable, failed when someone hurled a large metal ball at an allegedly shatterproof window—and it shattered.) One battery option has a range of 500 miles.
