Google thought we’d all forget about the headphone jack. It was wrong.

Pixel 2 vs. iPhone

Unlike Apple, which dedicated plenty of time to its “courageous” move to kill the 3.5mm headphone jack last year, Google never really addressed the matter on stage, preferring to quietly hint at it. It talked about better front-facing speakers, and it introduced Pixel-branded smart wireless earphones without explaining why they’re really needed.

Everyone in the audience who followed the Pixel 2 rumors already knew that Google was about to become "courageous," just like Apple. But Google didn’t quite copy Apple here. Instead, Google killed the headphone jack quietly, with no witnesses.

The worst part of all? One of Google’s “fixes” is even more expensive than Apple’s.

‘Stardew Valley’ and 9 other games coming to Nintendo Switch this week

Nintendo Switch new games

Today is the day that Nintendo fans have waited months for: Stardew Valley is finally available on the Switch eShop. The 2D farming simulator was one of the biggest surprise hits of 2016, and now Switch owners can take the game with them wherever they go. But Stardew Valley isn't the only new game to hit the Switch this week. In fact, by next Tuesday, 10 new games will be available on the eShop, including some other big indie hits.

First up, we have Axiom Verge, a side-scrolling action-adventure game that draws inspiration from the likes of Metroid and Castlevania. It too was well-received back when it launched in 2015, and should be perfect for the Switch.

Check out the Google Pixel Buds real-time translation demo that blew everyone away

pixel buds translation

Google's big product showcase yesterday was absolutely packed with exciting announcements. There was the new Pixel 2, a pair of new Home speakers, and even an incredibly high-end convertible Chromebook, but even as the event was winding down, Google tossed in one more announcement that, for some, stole the show: Pixel Buds. The all-new wireless earbuds are poised to take on Apple's AirPods, but they have a secret weapon: real-time translation.

Everyone knows that Google is the king of translation, and it's putting its money where its ears are with an absolutely incredible real-time translation feature that allows you to communicate with someone speaking a different language and have their speech filtered through the Pixel Buds and converted into your native tongue. It's pretty wild, and Google's on-stage demo is something you absolutely have to see.

The Uber app can secretly spy on iPhone screens

Uber app privacy issues: iPhone

The Uber app for iOS has been given a unique privilege on the operating system which allows the app to spy on the iPhone's screen, a researcher has discovered. ZDNet reports that the Uber app can read the screen buffer in iOS, allowing it to view and potentially record anything on your iPhone's screen without your knowledge.

Uber isn't doing this illicitly: Apple granted the app the permission. According to researchers, it's the only third-party app out there that has the ability to read the screen buffer.
