Apple reminds iPhone X owners they're using an OLED display

  Apple reminds iPhone X owners they're using an OLED display Cupertino is dealing with OLED technology's technical limits for the first time.The company explains that the "slight shifts in color and hue" when viewing the screen off-angle (read: not straight on) are perfectly normal. It also says OLEDs exhibit slight visual changes with long-term use, such as showing remnants of a high-contrast image displayed on the screen for extended periods of time even when it's already showing another image.

Now that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are available, we already know that the cameras offer arguably the best experience on the market today. The devices tout a single 12.3MP sensor but also feature both Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS)

Google has explained how they achieved the better results step by step. You can head over the source link provided below and read how Google achieved super smooth stabilization through Pixel 2 . Pixel 2 XL screen facing unresponsive edges, Google working on fix 4.

Google Explains How © Google Explains How "Fused Video Stabilization" Works On Pixel 2 The Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL have truly amazing cameras. For a point and shoot setup, both handsets are at the top of the market, easily. They are also very impressive when it comes to video capture as well.

And this epic performance is helped along (in a big way) by Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), which ensure shots and video come out looking amazing, regardless of where you’re shooting.

In a bid to demonstrate just what a difference these two technologies make when shooting video, Google has released some footage that was shot on the back of a motorcycle.

Google Assistant can ID that song for you

  Google Assistant can ID that song for you You don't need to have a Pixel 2 to get a built-in song identifier anymore: Google has finally given Assistant the ability to compete with Shazam. Next time you hear a nice tune playing, you can simply ask Assistant "What song is this?" and it will reply with the title and artist. It will also toss in an info card with the title of the album where you can find the track, the date it was released and embedded links to Search, YouTube and Play that make it easier to get the song or to listen to it again.

We recall that Google has decided to point to a combination of optical image stabilizer (OIS) and EIS, realizing what was called Fused Video Stabilization . With a blog post on the developer blog, the Google team has decided to explain how engineers have come to that solution and what aspects

Google explains how they combined three different techniques to create Fused Video Stabilization for the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. How to Unlock Bootloader and Root the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

As you can see, without Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), the footage looks terrible, is shaky, and would be, in most cases, unusable. Once you switch it on, however, it’s a different story entirely – it looks almost cinema-grade in how smooth it is.

Google calls this combination of technology Fused Video Stabilization, which it recently detailed over on its official blog:

“With Fused Video Stabilization, both OIS and EIS are enabled simultaneously during video recording to address all the issues mentioned above. Our solution has three processing stages as shown in the system diagram below. The first processing stage, motion analysis, extracts the gyroscope signal, the OIS motion, and other properties to estimate the camera motion precisely. Then, the motion filtering stage combines machine learning and signal processing to predict a person’s intention in moving the camera. Finally, in the frame synthesis stage, we model and remove the rolling shutter and focus breathing distortion. With Fused Video Stabilization, the videos from Pixel 2 have less motion blur and look more natural. The solution is efficient enough to run in all video modes, such as 60fps or 4K recording.”

You can read the full breakdown of the tech over on Google’s blog right now. Be warned though: it’s pretty technical and definitely not for the fainthearted or those averse to technical reports.

I tried out Google’s translating headphones. Here’s what I found. .
Google’s Pixel Buds won’t put translators out of business, but they're better than a phrase book.The most important thing you should know about Pixel Buds is that their full features only work with Google’s newest smartphone, the Pixel 2. While they’ll function with other phones, you must have a Google Pixel phone — last year's Pixels, the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL (which, buyer beware, have had some early quality-control issues) —  to access the Pixel Buds’ marquee feature: real-time translation.
