Google Pixel 3: what's coming next?

  Google Pixel 3: what's coming next? The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are only just making their way out to buyers, so it seems like the perfect time to consider what Google might be planning for 2018 - a Pixel 3 and a Pixel 3 XL? Despite some screen issues, the verdict seems to be that the 2017 Pixels were a solid step forward from the 2016 Pixels, which themselves were pretty decent smartphones. Google knows it needs to keep innovating with the likes of Apple and Samsung around, though.

The comparison currently shows a few rows of basic specs, which you can expand by tapping on the downward arrow for an extensive list of features.

The feature seems to have rolled out to most users by now, with several members of the TNW team showing the comparison.

It’s a small touch, but a genuine time saver when you want to quickly look up device specs (something I do several times a day). Here’s hoping it expands to other devices soon.

Google adds salaries to its job search tool .
Google already has some tools to help you find a job, but there's been a missing ingredient: salaries. The updated search also lets you narrow the available jobs to within a specific distance. And if you're ready to apply, you can choose where you submit your application if there's a choice. That's particularly helpful if you already have a profile at a favorite career page and would rather not spend ages recreating it somewhere else.
