Welcome to alphabet city, this is the show that covers everything related to Alphabet Inc.
The company that owns lots of other companies like Calco, Woon, and a little company called Google.
I'm your guy Iyaz Akhtar and you are the excellent audience.
Today we're talking about a settlement, the plastic Pixel, your comments and more, but first up The S10.
Again, let's go to Galaxy Gateway.
There's a new Wall Street Journal report with even more details on the Galaxy S10.
It says some of the same stuff we've heard before like expect three versions to hit around February This report has more info on the fourth version that will arrive in spring.
This would be a 5G S10 with a 6.7 [UNKNOWN] screen.
And a total of Six cameras.
Two on the front.
Four on the back.
Now what are all these cameras for?
The general sources say the cameras will, quote, promise richer photos and better spatial perception, end quote.
I really hope that means 3D tracking and not hokey 3D photos.
[UNKNOWN] published images of what it says are the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus glass.
A protective film, it looks like the S10 will have super teeny bezels on the top and the bottom.
Ice Universe also says Samsung's tech to put a whole in the active display is exclusive to the company, so we probably won't see it elsewhere for a bit.
Here's one more tidbit from that Journal article, Samsung was also kicking around the idea of reverse wireless charging.
For some of its phones.
That would allow the phone to wirelessly charge another device like maybe headphones or a watch or even another phone.
The Huawei May 20 pro already has this feature by the way.
Let's go to uptown updates.
The Guardian reports that Google has settled a racial discrimination claim with the contractor of Morocco descend.
The contractor apparently complained to Google about being profiled and, quote, accused of acting like a terrorist while conducting.
Conducting undercover research for Google in retail malls.
End of quote.
The nature of his workmate, the contractor did not have Google identification as he walked around malls to acquire data.
he told the Guardian, quote.
Someone asked me point blank if I was a terrorist because I was walking around with a laptop and a backpack.
It was so humiliating.
End of quote.
The Guardian says, Google paid the contractor 4,000 British pounds Around $5,100 US to settle things.
It's slide show time I guess.
Wilsa.com published pictures of what it says is the mid-ranged pixel David talked about last time.
What do we call this thing?
It's code name is Sargo, but it's also being called the pixel free light.
Let's take a look at it in all it's boring glory.
Yep, looks like a Pixel.
There's just one camera on the front instead of two.
And here's another pic and another.
You've gotta say this for Google products, they are generally inoffensive in design.
Let's go to Comment Cove.
This is the part of the show where we shine a spotlight on the most amazing audience in the world.
Jameel asked why is Google getting rid of all their robotics divisions?
That's a good question.
Over the years, Google has acquired a lot of companies.
A number of those got passed off to Alphabet to determine what to do with them.
To me, it's look like Google's current hardware track is in the smart home.
Will that eventually lead to a smart home robot?
Probably, but I bet it won't be a bipedal robot like Shaft was working on.
Unpronounceable name says, Can you include me in the next video?
Yes, and a number of you seemed to enjoy the Shaft joke from last week, while others think the humor was cringey.
I agree with all of you, the jokes are absolutely terrible.
I'll have a word With my script writer, also known as me.
Thanks to everyone writing in and surviving my awful sense of humor.
