Notes for Tech Time Episode 1

1:05

  • 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.
  • 2.3 billion and 8 years… still haven’t released goggles.
  • Pre-order $2300 ( you could buy 2 Iphone X’s with change to spare)
  • Reviews pretty mixed.  Seems to be geared towards developers.
  • How does it compare with microsoft’s holo lens?
  • Talk about pokemon go (Santa Monica water pokemon)

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
