First up, the phone: it's dubbed Pixel, which comes as a surprise to no one. There's a new material design with rounded icons and Google Assistant right on the home screen (where you probably can't get rid of it). In addition to being shiny, the phone includes:

Google's Chromecast Ultra does 4K for $69

While $69 is not a huge price to pay for a streaming media stick, the price difference between the Ultra and the regular Chromecast is significant. If you need a reason to justify paying an additional $35, perhaps Google's plans to launch 4K content on Google Play Movies & TV in November will do the trick.

EXCLUSIVE-Yahoo secretly scanned customer emails for US intelligence-sources

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Yahoo Inc last year secretly built a custom software program to search all of its customers' incoming emails for specific information provided by U.S. intelligence officials, according to people familiar with the matter.

Google Wifi offers modular, customizable home networking

Google revealed Wifi today – not the underlying tech, of course, but a new piece of hardware that wants to make it even easier to bathe your whole home in wonderful, soothing connectedness. Google Wifi is a new router, which basically is a tiny device that can pair up with others to create a more robust, more far-reaching home network that will ensure more reliable performance across the board.

Here's everything Google announced today, all in one place

It seems like only yesterday that Google was just a software company. Search and web apps, Android and Chrome. The industry giant’s first moves into hardware were small; it first worked with partners like Samsung and LG to build phones, tablets, and Chromebooks, then timidly branched out into creating its own designs. Well, Google isn’t timid about hardware any longer. In a 100-minute event on Tuesday, the company unveiled an entire line of products made not by hardware partners, but by Google’s own robust in-house product teams. And connecting all of the pieces together, of course, is Google’s speech-controlled, AI-powered Assistant. Here’s everything the company unveiled.

Google Home is finally ready to rumble with Amazon Echo. It goes on sale today for $130

It’s got a more elegant design, for one. You’ll be able to choose between different brightly colored bases, from purple to light blue to gray. We said previously that Home looks like a cross between a large salt shaker and a small vase, and that still stands. Echo’s not unpleasant, but it would maybe feel more at home on the Death Star.

4Chan Is Going Broke Because of Ad Blockers

Since buying the site from its founder Chris “moot” Poole almost exactly a year ago, Nishimura has tried to maintain the status quo, something he has experience in. (Nishimura is best known as the founder of Japanese imageboard 2Chan, the site that influenced 4Chan’s birth.) Now he claims he failed to do so. Does this signal the imminent death of one of the most hated sites on the internet?

What to Expect at Google's Oct. 4 Event

Those partnerships will bear new fruit on Oct. 4, when Google is expected to unveil the latest version of its Nexus/Pixel phones alongside a host of other consumer tech devices. PCMag will be bringing you live coverage from the event, which kicks off at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET, and while we don't know exactly what Google has in store, we have several pretty good guesses.

Google Daydream View takes VR into overdrive

The Daydream View is "really easy to use," Bavor said. It has a clickable touchpad at the top, and "hidden inside are a bunch of sensors that respond to how you move." As with Samsung's Gear VR, there are no cords attached to the Daydream View. When you're not using the device, you can store the included controller in the same part of the headset that holds your phone.

Google's Pixel phones arrive with full-res photo and video storage

Google has announced that its new smartphones, dubbed Pixel , will come with unlimited cloud storage for full-resolution pictures and videos. That's a big deal if you plan to take advantage of the devices' 4K shooting capabilities, as well as the large files produced by the 12.3-megapixel camera . It's worth noting that the company already offers something similar with Google Photos , but that only applies to high quality media, rather than full resolution.

The Google Pixel vs. the competition: Ready to rumble

We may be saying goodbye to the Nexus name, but we're not saying goodbye to the things we've come to expect from Google's premiere phones. The new Pixel still offers everything you'd expect in a flagship, including a highly-rated camera , a fingerprint sensor and the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack . But, with so many current phones offering similar chipsets, features like Google Assistant could make all the difference. We'll take a closer look at some of the bells and whistles in our eventual review, but for now there are specs to chew over. Check out the table below to see how the Pixel measures up on paper to some of its leading competition .

1. Public views on climate change and climate scientists

An analysis of peer-reviewed scientific articles published in 2013 and 2014 found virtually all authors supported human-caused climate change; just 0.2% rejected that view. See James Lawrence Powell, 2015, “Climate Scientists Virtually Unanimous Anthropogenic Global Warming is True”, Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, vol. 35 (5-6). An analysis of peer-reviewed articles published between 1991 and 2011 found 97% of articles to take a position consistent with human-caused climate change. See John Cook et al, 2016, “Consensus on consensus: a synthesis of consensus estimates on human caused global warming”, Environmental Research Letters, vol. 8 (2). Surveys of scientists have also found strong majorities in agreement on the causes of climate change. See Bart Verheggen et al, 2014, “Scientists’ Views about Attribution of Global Warming”, Environmental Science & Technology, vol. 48 (16) and P.T. Doran and M.K. Zimmerman, 2009,”Examining the Scientific Consensus on Climate Change”, Eos, vol. 90 (3). A Pew Research Center survey of members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) found 93% of members with a Ph.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 review: Image editor boosts its photo-manipulation features

Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 is a mature product that gets new and enhanced features on a yearly basis while keeping an elaborate and engaging interface consistent and easy to use. If you are a photo enthusiast who seeks special effects goodness without the learning curve, Photoshop Elements is the ticket. While I found at least two of the new guided edits less than compelling, improvements to the Organizer were uniformly useful.

Pixel leaks keep flowing on the eve of Google's big event

Everybody keeps spilling the beans on Google's upcoming Pixel phones. After a UK retailer and a Canadian carrier posted about them early, it's now Verizon's turn. Gizmodo has spotted listings of the upcoming devices on the carrier's Enterprise website , where you can find both the Pixel and the XL under its smartphone section. They also come with a short description of the devices' features, including a mysterious one called "Google Magic." We'll probably find out what that is at Google's big event. Serial leaker Evan Blass (aka evleaks) has also tweeted out an image of the devices for Verizon, and it looks like they will be available in silver/white and blue.

The Politics of Climate

One thing that doesn’t strongly influence opinion on climate issues, perhaps surprisingly, is one’s level of general scientific literacy. According to the survey, the effects of having higher, medium or lower scores on a nine-item index of science knowledge tend to be modest and are only sometimes related to people’s views about climate change and climate scientists, especially in comparison with party, ideology and concern about the issue. But, the role of science knowledge in people’s beliefs about climate matters is varied and where a relationship occurs, it is complex. To the extent that science knowledge influences people’s judgments related to climate change and trust in climate scientists, it does so among Democrats, but not Republicans. For example, Democrats with high science knowledge are especially likely to believe the Earth is warming due to human activity, to see scientists as having a firm understanding of climate change, and to trust climate scientists’ information about the causes of climate change. But Republicans with higher science knowledge are no more or less likely to hold these beliefs.

The inside story of the Google phone

In a nationally televised commercial that premiered last month, an empty search box sitting against a stark white background slowly morphs, becoming taller and skinnier. As Redbone croons “Come and get your love,” the lines take shape and the outline of a phone emerges. It is, of course, the Pixel, a new phone “made by Google.” The metaphor damn near hits you in the face: the search box once defined Google, but now Google needs to be something more.

Google just announced a souped-up Chromecast

In late September, Chromecast's main competitor Roku announced its new lineup of media streaming devices. There are now five new Roku streaming boxes to chose from with varying features, one of which has been dubbed a "Chromecast killer." The new $30 Roku Express has similar features as Google's Chromecast, like 1080p streaming and app support, for $5 less.

Google is getting back into making phones. Google debuted its two newest flagship phones--the Pixel and the Pixel XL--at an event in San Francisco, CA today. Like the older Nexus-branded phones, the new Pixel phones will run a stock version of the Android operating system. From a design and specification standpoint the two phones are similar to other current flagship smartphones on the market. The first two features that Google focused on during the announcement were the built-in Google Assistant and the improved camera software. USA TODAY

With Messenger, encryption will only be applied when users specifically ask for it, similar to Google's Allo or Telegram. That, undoubtedly, will mean that the vast majority of conversations go unencrypted. Most users won't know or care about encryption. However, it has to be said that offering some protection is better than none at all — especially when it means end-to-end encryption is now available for another 1 billion users.

I'm not sure how all that equates to the smell of a new Mac, but enough people have been hyped about this candle for it to sell out on the website.
