Wireless charging is officially "a thing" again now that Apple made it cool. Even Google is back on wireless charging with the Pixel 3, although it has its own fast wireless charging standard. Wireless charging may also be coming to Chrome OS, according to a new commit in the open source code.

Spotted by Chrome Unboxed, the Chromium Gerrit now includes the following commit.

Google Home Hub may launch in Canada soon, as Smart Displays add French Canadian support

0 comments

In the past couple of years, Google has only added new language support for Assistant on a product when that particular product went officially on sale in the dialect's corresponding country. For example, the Home speakers began speaking Italian a few days before they launched on the Store in Italy, same for Spanish and Spain/Mexico, Chinese and Taiwan, etc... you get the gist. So upon seeing that Smart Displays can now speak French Canadian, it's easy to extrapolate that the Home Hub may soon be coming to Canada.

It sure looks like Google's $599 Celeron Pixel Slate is dead

0 comments

The watchful folks over at 9to5Google have been keeping an eye on one of Google's least-loved products in recent memory, the Pixel Slate, and have noticed something a bit odd: the Celeron models are nowhere to be seen. They've been out of stock on the Google Store - the only place these models were briefly available - since shortly after launch, four months ago.

The $599 and $699 versions of the Pixel Slate brought sub-iPad Pro pricing to Google's prosumer tablet, even if it turned out that the tablet itself beat the iPad in pretty much no sense that mattered.

Samsung rolls out Pie to the Note FE (AKA, the non-explosive Note 7)

0 comments

Samsung launched the Note 7 in 2016, but the phone was on sale for less than two months before repeated issues with battery fires resulted in its cancelation. The phone came back in 2017 as the Note FE (Fan Edition) in select markets. Even though Samsung would probably prefer to forget this whole incident ever happened, it's still pushing a Pie update today.

Samsung cobbled together the Note FE using unopened Note 7 units and spare parts from the original production.

YouTube kills plans for two premium original shows, will move away from paid show model

0 comments

The YouTube logo is displayed.

One of the major perks of paying for YouTube has been access  to its original content. Programs like Cobra Kai or Unicorn Island have brought existing YouTube personalities to the fore in new and interesting ways. That may be changing, though, as YouTube is reportedly axing its high-end original programming.

According to unnamed sources, YouTube has stopped accepting pitches for expensive scripted shows and has canceled existing projects like Origin and Overthinking with Kat & June.

Google Maps city, state, and country borders are back again on Android

0 comments

There was a magical time, many moons ago, when Google Maps had a neat superpower. If you searched for a city or country or state, it would highlight its borders, making it easy to discern which parts were inside of it and which weren't. Then, that mystical ability disappeared, leaving geography buffs and detail-oriented users confused. The feature appears to be back now, though it's not completely reliable.

Previously, if you searched Maps on Android for a city, township, county, district, state, country, you got a pin in the middle and...
