Ultima Thule: The first close photos and icy new info

An entirely new kind of space body was seen over the past few hours - and what a strange sort of space matter it is! This is Ultima Thule, the latest space object detected and photographed by NASA's New Horizons mission. This was the same mission that gave us our closest-ever look at Pluto - now it's headed beyond - out into the Kuiper Belt!

Galaxy S10 just leaked in ‘photos’ with 3-cam back

Galaxy S10 just leaked in ‘photos’ with 3-cam back

Overnight it would appear that the Samsung Galaxy S10 made its way into the hands of a couple of different sources internationally. While we cannot guarantee the veracity of these photos - and/or very good renderings - it would seem that at least that we're getting closer to the final product. If these do indeed show the Galaxy S10, we can safely assume we're seeing the Galaxy S10 Plus, not just the base model. It's expected that the Galaxy S10 will have two back-facing cameras, while the Galaxy S10 Plus will have three.

Google Photos Live Albums has a limit Google didn’t mention

Google Photos Live Albums has a limit Google didn’t mention

When Google announced the Home Hub, it didn't brand it as a smart display. It advertised it more as a smart digital photo frame, one that could display smart home controls as much as it could your kids' or pets' photos. In fact, one of Google Photos' new features was designed especially for the Home Hub, as well as other smart displays. But while Live Albums have now launched to the public, it reportedly came with a maximum limit that Google is only telling users now.

Apple Photos adds For You tab with smarter sharing in iOS 12

Apple Photos adds For You tab with smarter sharing in iOS 12

Apple's WWDC keynote for 2018 is all about software, and one of the apps that's due for some enhancements is Photos. Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi spent a brief time covering what's new for Photos in iOS 12 (at least compared to the amount of time spent talking about new AR features), but don't take that to mean that the app isn't getting some significant updates. In fact, Federighi had a lot to reveal about the future of photos, even though he only spent a few minutes of his larger presentation talking about the app.

Nude app uses AI to automatically hide your most sensitive images

Nude app uses AI to automatically hide your most sensitive images

It's a horror story for the modern world: you show someone an image on your phone, only for them to start browsing uninvited. You snatch your phone away, hoping they didn't stumble across one of the intimate photos that may be residing, fully exposed, on your handset. Artificial intelligence may be the solution to this problem, and it comes in the form of an app called Nude.

Why Google Pixel 1 may become Priceless

Why Google Pixel 1 may become Priceless

Today we found out that the Pixel 2 does not have the exact same "Unlimited Google Photos Uploads at Original Quality" deal that came with the first-generation Pixel. One year after launch, I remain positively shocked that Google's continued their Unlimited Google Photos Uploads at Original Quality deal with the original Google Pixel, to be entirely honest. I thought there's be some sort of catch - sort of like the catch that's included with the Pixel 2.

Google Photos suggests to archive photos of receipts, docs

While people love taking photos with their smartphones, not everything we capture would probably fit in what many would consider “photographs”. Thanks to the ubiquity of smartphones, it has never been easier to capture anything and everything, which means you eventually accumulate cruft in your photo albums. Thankfully, Google Photos, with some intelligent help from Google Assistant, can now suggests which of your photos you may want to archive and which ones to keep on your phone for quick access.

More HD photos of Rey’s Lightsaber (and its true identity)

Today we present the best look at Rey's Lightsaber we currently have available - up close and personal with a nice set of photos. These images come with a bit of confirmation of information passed down this week by the keeper of the canon for Star Wars: Pablo Hidalgo. Before there's any confusion when the first wave of The Last Jedi toys are released in stores - the name "Rey's Lightsaber" is a simple re-naming of a lightsaber we already know very well.

GOES-16 satellite delivers first batch of stunning high-res Earth photos

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s weather satellite GOES-16 has sent back its first ever batch of photographs, and in them we get a high-resolution look at our own planet.
