Google's drone delivery service targets 2017

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] [SOUND] What's going on, Brian Tong here with your Googlicious, for everything Google that we can pack inside of a show. Let's jump into it this week, and Google is standing by Chrome OS, and they made sure there was no confusion with the new blog post. After a Wall Street Journal report last week claimed that Google was planning to merge Android with Chrome OS and completely phase out Chrome OS. It also claimed that Chromebooks, as they're known right now, would get a new name to The new OS. Well, none of that is happening. Google made it clear they've been working to bring the best out of both operating systems and there are no plans to phase out chrome at all. And in more news, the tech giant announced the official date For project wing. It's their initiative to deliver goods to consumers via drones by sometime in 2017. The project was initially run inside Google X, their secretive project research lab but is now believed to be under the control of the larger company, Alphabet. Now, their earlier work Have been testing drones in Australia with custom design drones that can hover and winch down packages for delivery. Competition is fierce in this space with Amazon and Alibaba working on drone deliveries themselves. Now, Amazon says, its octocopters Can send 2.3 kilograms of goods, within 30 minutes of an order being placed. And Alibaba ran a three day trial of drone deliveries around its offices in Asia earlier this year. [SOUND] All right, the Nexus 6P has been in consumer's hands for the past couple of weeks. And like every phone, it's also going through it's own torture test. YouTube user JerryRigEverything does everything from scratching it, to burning it, because that happens all of the time, and then proceeds to bend it with his bare hands. We haven't seen an overflow of Nexus 6P phones being bent from sitting on them, but there's a point where these torture tests become just a bunch of eye candy more than anything else. So what about a phone that could actually survive one of these tests and live to tell about it? Well Motorola is claiming their new Droid Turbo 2 has the world's first shatterproof display for a smart phone, and their claims look pretty legit. Now on this video by Tech Rack, you drop the phone and it survives. But then takes a hammer to the screen, not once or twice but multiple times until it shuts off. The screen never shatters. It has indentations and marks on it but it never shatters. That's pretty sweet and a good sign for the future but I'm not buying a phone just because it won't shatter and I know many of you are in the same boat. [SOUND] Okay, OnePlus revealed their second phone of the year with the OnePlus x. You know, the phone CEO Carl Pay hyped up as the best OnePlus phone. Almost immediately after the OnePlus II was announced. But the reality if that it's a smaller size phone at a 5.5 inch screen, and an even cheaper unlocked handset at that, with expandable storage for a $249 price tag. Now it also takes design cues from the Apple iPhone 4 With glass panels on the front and back and that metal trim that we know. And for those hold outs or long time fans of BlackBerrys the new BlackBerry Priv which is the first BlackBerry handset powered by Android will be available on AT&T in the U.S. on November 6. This includes its sweet looking smart slide keyboard And it's a potential turning point for BlackBerry if this design resonates with enough of its users. Now an unlocked version will also be sold by BlackBerry and is only compatible with GSM networks. All right that's gonna do it for this week's show.
