The Morning After: What to expect from Google’s Pixel 7 event

Google’s big Pixel hardware event kicks off Thursday, October 6, and we’ll finally get all the details on the Pixel 7 series and the long-taunted (and leaked) Pixel Watch.

Google showed a first look at its next Pixel phone back in May 2022. It retains the camera bar style of last year’s Pixel 6 but with an aluminum frame. The base Pixel 7 will have two rear cameras, while the Pro will have three. Pixel phones’ camera capabilities are usually their standout feature, so we’re excited to hear more. Rumor has it that the Pixel 7 family will launch at the same $599 and $899 prices as last year’s phones – which could be even more compelling in a time of rising prices.

Then there’s the Pixel Watch – Google’s first official smartwatch ever. It will be a hardware showcase for Wear OS 3 with tight Fitbit integration. Expect a prominent crown on the side, circular dial, and multiple band options, a la Apple Watch. Can Google match the specs of the current smartwatch king? We’ll report back on all the official details later this week. Stay tuned.

That might sound like a lot, but it’s a bit overwhelming when compared to paid media services like Spotify Premium (188 million users in Q2) and Netflix (220.7 million).

She calls the four-person vehicle a “candidate for FAA certification.”



Wisk Aero has unveiled its 6th generation semi-autonomous air taxi, calling it the “first-ever candidate for FAA type certification of an autonomous eVTOL.” The design looks like a major updated version of the Cora air taxi we saw flying and hovering in New Zealand in 2018. However, even for established aircraft manufacturers like Boeing, it’s a struggle to get that coveted FAA certification – let alone for a new company with a brand new type of aircraft.

The exploit has some major limitations.



Almost two years after the PlayStation 5 went on sale, modders appear to have found a way to jailbreak the console, albeit with some significant limitations. A WebKit vulnerability only works on PS5 systems running firmware version 4.03 or earlier. If you’ve updated your PS5 since last October, you probably can’t try the exploit. It doesn’t seem likely that this jailbreak will be widespread anytime soon due to its limitations and the risk of bricking the console at a time when buying one isn’t that easy yet. You can install ptsure, but you can’t play it.

Privacy advocates have expressed concerns.

A US-UK data sharing agreement has come into effect five years after it was suggested. Both sides claim that the data access agreement, approved in the US through the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data (CLOUD) Act, will assist law enforcement in fighting serious crimes in both countries. Privacy advocates have blasted the initiative for several years. In 2018, shortly after the bill was introduced, the Electronic Frontier Foundation said it “sets a dangerous precedent for other countries that may want to access information stored outside of their own borders, including data stored in the United States.” States are stored”.
