Google Pixel 2 to Launch in Oct
August 02, 2017 – Google Pixel 2 is scheduled to be launched this Oct. The major highlight of this will be the Google Assistant and smart capabilities. Google has hinted that the new phone will have a better camera and finished look, but we’ll have to wait a bit to find out for sure.
Things we know for sure are:

Gmail Gets New Updates
September 19, 2017 – Yes! Gmail too has rolled out some updates. Finally!!!
Google’s latest development is an update for Gmail that will turn addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses into links.
This will make the life of users lot easier. Like if you send someone an address it will come as a link, and when you click it it will take you directly to Google Maps.
Facebook to End Sketchy Political Ads
September 21, 2017 – Mark Zuckerberg recently announced that “We’re going to bring Facebook to an even higher standard of transparency.”
Which means Facebook will now show the page that paid for an ad, will help you to visit the advertiser’s page, and will showcase all of the ads that the page is currently running to any audience on Facebook.
Until Next Tuesday…
