New Chromecast would make for a streamy September

Tech Industry
Apple and Amazon just came out with new tv media streamers and Google may be next. I'm Bridget Carey. This is your Cnet update. [MUSIC] Google may soon reveal a new version of its Chromecast video streaming stick. Now just the other day Amazon came out with a new fire tv stick and box. The stick cost 50 dollars and the box is 100 Earlier this month, Apple revamped the Apple TV, which is coming out in October for $150, but as for Google, it has not released a new version of the Chromecast in more than two years. And since the first one came out, it's been a hot seller for the low Low price of $35. The Chrome cast is able to stream music and video through your TV and you control it from a smartphone or tablet. Google is holding an event to showcase new products to the press on September 29th and we expect to see two new Nexus smartphones. Those would be the flagship phones for Android Marshmallow. But another report from 9TO5 Google says, we'll also gonna see a new Chrome cast at this event. It cites internal documents that indicate it has a new look and support for faster wi-fi and it may have some sort of new home screen. Meanwhile, it seems Apple is taking more steps in testing a self driving car. The Guardian reports. The paint document indicates that apple senior legal cancel had a meeting last month with several members of california D and D's specialised in soft driving cars, the department said that the medium with apple will to review the D and D's economist dual core regulation According to the report. Google has been testing various types of self-driving cars for years now and Uber is also getting into the space. Although Apple has not confirmed anything publicly there has been speculation about Apple working on self-driving cars for quite some time. California law requires that any car that doesn't need a human operator must be registered with the State before it can be tested on public roads. Microsoft may not have its own self-driving car, but it is working on putting Cortana in the car. A Microsoft executive told the crowd at a conference in Taiwan that the company has created a concept car. That uses Cortana voice controls and projects a display onto the windshield to perform quick tasks and searches. That's of course according to the Tai Pei Times. Also in Microsoft news, we now know the new Xbox One Elite controller is gonna go on sale on October 27th. That's the same day that Halo 5 Guardians launches. The beefed up controller costs $150, and it lets gamers do some pretty specific customizations to the triggers and thumb stick. And there are interchangeable rear paddles. And there's also news for folks who still have an Xbox 360. In a system update, Microsoft Bumped up the free cloud storage, now everyone has two gigs.
