Google Forgot These Important Details

On Tuesday, Google held an event in New York where they revealed their new line of product for 2019-2020, and on the top of the list – The Pixel 4.

But it appears as they forgot to few important things that you might want to consider before deciding.

What about Google Photos?

One of the greatest features of all Pixel phones that Google released over the years is the amazing camera. In all previous models, Pixel users got 2 years free of unlimited storage for all of their photos and videos so they will be able to save their precious memories in the highest quality possible. But this time, Google said nothing about this service.

Google home is missing something

Google missed some of the simplest features that Amazon already has on their Echo Dot product, their direct competitor against Google Home.

The Echo Dot has LED screen to show the time, while Google Nest (the successor of Google Home) has an alarm clock, you can’t tell what time it is.

Google Wi-fi

Google managed to create the Nest Wi-Fi – a router with speakers which makes it a great combination between a router and a Google Nest device. But these expensive devices don’t support Wi-Fi 6. While Intel, Apple and Samsung already applied this feature it seems like Google is a step back.

Pricing

Google didn’t raise their prices this time, but it’s still pretty high for the features of their products. The Pixel 4 will cost around $800, which is much more compared to the One Plus 7t which costs $600 and has better processor, bigger battery, bigger screen and more RAM.

Sony Revealed New Details About The Playstation 5

Besides revealing that the official name of the new console is going to be Playstation 5 as expected, Sony says the controllers will have modern Haptic systems inside the controllers in order to improve the game play experience. The controllers will vibrate according to the game. According to Sony, you will be able to feel the difference between a crash of a car and being tackled in the football field or even feel the difference if your character is running in the field or in the mud.

The buttons on the controllers will be sensitive to pressure so game developers will be able to create some sense of resistance while pushing the buttons. For example, if you shoot an arrow, you will be able to feel the resistance before releasing the arrow, in racing games you will be able to feel the resistance of the gas pedal. Sony claims that developers already got a prototype of these controllers so they will be able to develop games that supports it right away.

Jim Ryan, CEO and president of Sony said – the Playstation 5 will have SSD hard drive which allows developers to make lighter games. The new console will arrive with a Blu-ray and 4k disk compartment. The processor will be AMD model Ryzen with 8 cores.

The new console is expected to be released in the holiday time next year, 2020, about a year from now.

Joaquin Phoenix Is Interested in Making Another Joker Movie

Phoenix got many praises for his amazing role in the new movie Joker. The character of the Joker was played by many actors such as Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Jared Leto but the most memorable one was Heath Ledger’s performance in “The Dark Night”. Joaquin got many good reviews not only for the acting in the movie but for they way he made it different from all the Jokers before him.

The next questions many fans what to know is if there is a chance that this will become a franchise or at least a sequel for this amazing masterpiece.

Phoenix said in a interview –

“I wouldn’t have thought of this as my dream role, but now, honestly, I can’t stop thinking about it. I talked to [director] Todd a lot about what else we might be able to do, in general, just working together, but also specifically, if there’s something else we can do with Joker that might be interesting. So, it ended up being a dream role. It’s nothing that I really wanted to do prior to working on this movie.

Todd Phillips, the director of ‘Joker’ said: “One thing I will tell you: I would do anything with [Phoenix], any day of the week. There’s nobody like him. If he was willing to do [a sequel], and if people show up to this movie, and Warners came to us and said, ‘You know what? If you guys could think of something…’ Well, I have a feeling that he and I could think of something pretty cool.”
