Notes for Tech Time Episode 1
- Google continues to track you through services like Google Maps, weather updates, and browser searches — any app activity can be used to track you.
- By turning off Location History, you’re only stopping Google from adding your movements to its Timeline feature, which visually logs where you’ve been.
- But there is a way to get Google to actually stop tracking you: by digging through settings to turn off “Web and App Activity.”
- Tech companies make money by tracking us.
- Are all of these features worth your privacy? (Zuckerberg tapes his camera)
- Companies know more about you than you think.

Magic Leap Specs and Reviews
- Augmented reality goggles.

Pixel 3 Leaks
- Apparently it has a very small battery for the screen size
- Android P has ‘machine learning’ based battery optimization and chipsets become ever more efficient, but apps and games also become ever more demanding
- Galaxy Note 9 has a 4000mAh battery tmah (Large Pixel 3 @ 6.7 Inches is only 3,430mAh)
- Battery life is my most important factor
19:55 Note 9 Release (Crazy Price)
- 128GB of storage in the standard model, a little bit of artificial intelligence, and a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen you can use as a remote control.
Tesla Stock YoYo
- 1000 bucks. (Same as iphone X). More expensive than the Pixel 2 XL ($849)
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor (or Exynos 9 if you’re outside the US),
- a whopping 4,000mAh battery
- 6 GB of Ram (That’s almost as much as my 1800 dollar new mac book pro)
- I like the curved glass. I don’t think I’d use the stylus
