Google might launch a reborn Chromebook Pixel and smaller Home

Do you still have a Chromebook Pixel-shaped hole in your heart months after Google pulled the plug? Good news — Google might be bringing it back. A source speaking to Android Police claims that a “Pixel-branded Chromebook” will launch alongside the next Pixel phones at an event this fall. Details are scarce, including whether or not this is the fabled laptop that would run Andromeda, the long-rumored cross between Android and Chrome OS. That system was supposed to be a convertible PC with a tablet mode, a 12.3-inch display and an optional Wacom stylus, but there’s no certainty that this design is the one that launches. We certainly wouldn’t count on the originally planned $799 pricing.

This wouldn’t be the only hardware bonus in store. Reportedly, there would also be a smaller version of the Home smart speaker. Although there isn’t much to say about that, either, it stands to reason that this would be a competitor to Amazon’s Echo Dot, which ditched all but the most basic of built-in audio in the name of price.

Android Police‘s sources tend to be accurate, but we’d take this scoop with a grain of salt as there’s a lot that could change. However, it would make sense for Google to launch both products. Now that Microsoft’s Surface Laptop and Windows 10 S are gunning after Chrome OS, Google might want a riposte that gives Surface buyers a reason to think twice. Likewise, Google may want to expand its smart speaker roster before Amazon conquers the space with its rapidly growing lineup. One thing’s for sure: if any of this is true, Google is going to be very, very busy toward the end of the year.

Elon Musk says Tesla's new Semi trucks are BAMFs.

Yes, for those of you at home, that's the widely known acronym for "Bad Ass Mother F***er."

Musk playfully threw out the acronym as a "scientific term" Tesla's development team used as they designed the new big rigs. The name sounds ridiculous — but the specs, if they wind up being legit, are actually pretty impressive.

Musk claims the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just five seconds, well faster than traditional diesel trucks. That's the cab by itself or with an empty trailer loaded on. Read more...
