The AirPods and Pixel Buds have features I wish they’d steal from each other.

It’s all about the camera, the feel, and the speed. (P.S. I’m trying this daily thing out to see how people like it. Let me know if you are into this or if it’s just too much.)
Apple has hired Google’s chief of search and artificial intelligence, John Giannandrea, a major coup in its bid to catch up to the artificial intelligence technology of its rivals.

I’m a few days into Android again, and it really struck me already how little passion I feel for this platform. The types of experiences that make me really appreciate iOS and macOS just aren’t here. There are some surface-level customizations that are nice, but the third party (and even first party Google) apps are just so lifeless.
