Apple Siri Speaker expected for WWDC 2017

Apple Siri Speaker expected for WWDC 2017

Last week, we heard that Apple could introduce a Siri-based smart speaker as early as June. Today analytics firm KGI is saying that it expects the same reveal, along with making some predictions about what kind of hardware we'll see in it. Get ready to potentially spend some money though, because if there's one theme to KGI's predictions, it's "premium."

Windows 10 Cloud is almost here: Should Chromebooks be worried?

Windows 10 Cloud is almost here: Should Chromebooks be worried?

Don't expect the Surface Book 2, Surface Pro 5, or even a Surface Phone at Microsoft's event this week, but do expect its answer to Google's Chromebook. Anticipation for what the software giant will do next with its premium Surface range has never been higher, not least because it was a disappointing glitch in an otherwise healthy financial quarter. It looks, though, like we'll have to wait a little longer to see how Microsoft will address that, because the company is too busy going back to school.

Next PlayStation console to debut in 2018, predicts analyst

Next PlayStation console to debut in 2018, predicts analyst

The PS4 Pro has barely been out for six months, so it's hard to imagine another new game console from Sony in the near future. However, if the release of the PS4 Pro itself, along with the upcoming Xbox Project Scorpio, has shown us anything, it's that Sony and Microsoft are no longer sticking to a 5 to 7 year lifespan for their systems. With this in mind, it should come as little surprise that there's a new report on the next PlayStation launching as early as 2018.

Could a Google Pixel 2 XXL make you forget the Galaxy S8+?

Could a Google Pixel 2 XXL make you forget the Galaxy S8+?

A Pixel 2 XXL with a Snapdragon 835 chipset and pure Android could take on the Samsung Galaxy S8+ later this year, if tidbits turned up in the code are to be believed. The smartphone is believed to be the third in a three-strong range of Pixel 2 handsets for 2017, and internally codenamed "taimen" in keeping with Google's fondness for fish. While it won't be the first device to reach the market with Qualcomm's latest chipset, there may well be a few reasons why Android fans opt to catch the Pixel 2 XXL and throw back the rest.

Amazon’s Echo with a screen tipped for May reveal

Amazon’s Echo with a screen tipped for May reveal

Amazon may have split opinion this week with Echo Look, which encourages Alexa to watch you getting dressed, but it seems it's not letting that slow the roll-out of new smart assistants. Echo Look is the fourth product on Amazon's virtual shelves to use Alexa, following the original Echo smart speaker, the Tap portable Bluetooth version, and the compact and more affordable Echo Dot. As soon as next month, though, we could see a fifth addition to the line-up.

Reboot-rebooted, new iOS 11 Apple Music tipped for iPhone 8

Apple is preparing a second attempt at rebooting Apple Music, it's reported, with a big push into video joining the subscription-based streaming audio. The update will come roughly two years after Apple Music first launched, and mark a sizable bet on streaming video that will see several big-name celebrities contributing content. Only last year, Apple redesigned Apple Music considerably, in part to bring the company's curated playlists to greater prominence.

Apple AR glasses possibly confirmed by a leaked report

Apple AR glasses possibly confirmed by a leaked report

Did Apple's augmented reality prototype accidentally injure one employee's eyes? That's one potential explanation being juggled for a mysterious incident report at the iPhone company, after a cache of such filings were inadvertently leaked. The handiwork of an Environment Health and Safety contractor, the document was presumably intended for internal eyes only, but was mistakenly distributed first among employees and then snuck out to Gizmodo.

Chrome with built-in ad-blocker may target the most obnoxious ads

Google is planning to add a built-in ad-blocker to Chrome, according to sources, and it will target the Internet's most obnoxious types of advertisements. These sub-standard advertisements include things like videos that automatically start playing and advertisements that won't disappear until a long countdown timer is finished. The sources indicate that Google hasn't ironed out all of the details yet, and that it may not ultimately go through with the feature.

The Galaxy S8’s ergonomic compromise is giving me iPhone 8 worries

The Galaxy S8’s ergonomic compromise is giving me iPhone 8 worries

If all goes according to plan (or, at least, the rumor machine's version of the plan) Apple's anniversary iPhone 8 will be a huge departure in design. After three years of iterative iPhones, the new model - one of three expected to launch later in 2017, alongside updated versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus - will usher in a huge number of changes. Curved glass and OLED displays; reworked dual cameras; and tiny bezels. I'm excited, certainly, but I'm also worried, and I'm not alone.
