Google Call Screen: Everything you need to know

Google not only recently announced two new Pixel phones, but the company also unveiled a new call screening service launching first with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that will surely help you deal with calls from unknown numbers or people you’d rather avoid. Call Screen answers incoming calls, asks the person for more information and gives options throughout the screening process to better handle the call. The entire experience is well done, impressive and easy to use.

Facebook is reportedly working on a TV camera that can stream video

Earlier this month, Facebook announced Portal, a camera-equipped smart device that’s meant to compete with Amazon’s Echo Show. But the company’s hardware ambitions apparently go far beyond that: Cheddar is reporting that Facebook is working on a TV camera that would offer Portal-like video chatting on a bigger screen and allow users to stream content from Facebook Watch.

Congratulations Palm, you’ve launched the stupidest product of the year

Stop looking everyone, the stupidest product of the year has arrived. It’s the Palm (2018), a device that should never have got past the point of conception, and certainly never have actually been made. It’s so baffling, even those that made it don’t know what it’s for. However, heads were nodded, budgets allotted, boxes were ticked, and production lines were fired into life. And now it has been vomited into the world.

Apple fattened up its bagel emoji and now people are happy

Food lovers feel strongly about their bagels. Some fans of the boiled and baked bread product took offense at Apple’s new emoji rendition of a bagel. Apple seems to have heard their cries of anguish because it’s now released a redesigned, more appetizing version.

Discord’s game store is open to everyone

Discord is marching further onto Steam’s turf by opening up its game store to all users. The store arrived in August in a limited beta, and now everyone can pick up games directly from the app. The curated store includes recognizable titles such as Celeste, Into The Breach, Dead Cells and Subnautica along with a number of exclusives. Games featured in the First on Discord program will only be available on PC through the app for 90 days — developers get a showcase for their games, and Discord gets some limited-time exclusives.

Battlefield 5 Story Trailer Is About Rising To The Occasion

Battlefield V returns to World War 2, which means a lot of focus on the heroism of a just cause, the Greatest Generation, and all the imagery that entails. The single-player story trailer embraces that spirit wholeheartedly with a cinematic presentation that intermingles personal sacrifices with the bombastic moments that come in a theater of war.
