You are reading the article Daily Authority: 🔮 Android 12L = Pixel Foldable? updated in November 2023 on the website Cancandonuts.com. We hope that the information we have shared is helpful to you. If you find the content interesting and meaningful, please share it with your friends and continue to follow and support us for the latest updates. Suggested December 2023 Daily Authority: 🔮 Android 12L = Pixel Foldable?

So today at Android Dev Summit, we announced a feature drop for Android 12 that is purpose-built for large screens, we’re calling it 12L, along with new APIs, tools, and guidance to make it easier to build for large screens. We also talked about changes we’re making to Google Play to help users discover your large-screen optimized apps more easily. Read on to see what’s new for large screens on Android!

Expectations, phrasing:

Google’s being careful not to announce this as a separate operating system like iPadOS is separate to iOS.

But more exciting is that Google’s probably working on this because it has a bigger screen device coming: like a tablet, or probably more accurately, a new foldable phone.

Look at this timeline:

There’s no exact final date for the final release, but you could reasonably assume a March/April release, which may well coincide with a larger-screen Google phone, tablet, or foldable.

It also, confusingly, will mean that it is coming out at about the same time as the first Android 13 developer preview, meaning multiple Android beta releases at the same time.

But just as Google confuses with its disjointed efforts on things like messaging, social, the latest Google Pay fiasco, we’ve been here before: Google half attempted a tablet interface with Honeycomb back in 2011-12 but developers didn’t really bother supporting it.

Google’s let us down enough times that we can all be skeptical, but if it releases hardware to go along with the 12L software next year, that’ll be a big step towards a commitment.

By the way, we got a bunch of votes on a poll about what should be the next Google Pixel product, with more than 50% voting for a Pixel Watch.

Next up, and what got my vote, was a Pixel tablet at only 16% of votes.

Throwback Thursday

This is too good: 52 years ago tomorrow, the first internet message was sent via ARPANET, a DARPA-funded research effort at UCLA in 1969, by Leonard Kleinrock, a professor of computer science at the university, and one of the names of the early internet. (His co-academics, Irwin M. Jacobs, Andrew Viterbi, worked with Kleinrock on early internet era tech, but later went off to found Qualcomm.)

Anyway, for the 50th anniversary, Los Angeles Magazine had a fun chat with Kleinrock. A couple of quotes from a Q&A:

Q: What exactly is ARPANET?

Leinrock: Sputnik went up and caught the US with its pants down. The government realized it needed a network that would allow computers to communicate and share resources. I had figured out the mathematical theory when I was a grad student at MIT. The theory was there, the need was there, now these two were going to come together. ARPANET was a series of high-speed lines connected to computer “nodes” at various universities.

Q: [When sending the first message] what happened?

Leinrock: I had one of my software developers with me, and we decided late one night to make the first connection. In order to log in to the remote computer at SRI, you had to type “LOGIN.” The first message sent on the internet on October 29, 1969, was “LO” — because the network crashed after the first two letters. Samuel Morse had a good message ready with the telegraph. Armstrong, too, up on the moon. Those guys were smart. We had nothing. There wasn’t a camera here. Not even a voice recorder. But we ended up with the most potent message possible. “LO,” as in “lo and behold.”

Brilliant, I reckon.

Cheers,

Tristan Rayner, Senior Editor.

Daily Authority: Surface Duo 2 🤔

Really, though, the failure was how strongly Microsoft pushed the device. 

In the end, and despite the launch getting pushed back many months, it was still way too much for a first-generation product. Reviews were not good. 2/5 from us is pretty bad.

It had hardware problems despite Microsoft’s exceptional Surface line of laptops and tablets.

And it had software problems that ranged from odd to unbelievable for a shipped product, despite Microsoft employing tens of thousands of engineers, though of course, not many work on Android devices.

Microsoft did later cut the price to $999, and continued to patch and improve the software experience.

Still, that’s first-gen tech for you, and credit to Microsoft for trying. (No one was forced to buy it, after all.)

And, apparently, credit to Microsoft for trying again because now there’s a Surface Duo 2:

The first leaked images of the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 landed yesterday, courtesy of an unknown YouTuber, as you can see above.

So unknown is the YouTube channel Tech Rat that well, it’s hard to be certain if what we see is anything much.

But, Windows Central stepped up to confirm the reports that suggested what you see is what’s expected to come out of Redmond. Editor Daniel Rubino said: “Let us clarify: it is a prototype, but also a near-final design. This is what they are going for.”

So here we are — it seems real. 

Mostly, the leak shows a key new development, which is a redesigned rear, now housing a camera module. 

It’s still a prototype, apparently, but the original Duo didn’t have a rear camera at all. And while this version looks a lot more generic-smartphone-like and odd, if it does now sport three lenses, that’s likely a much-improved camera.

That’s a good sign for one of the worst features of the Surface Duo, in that the camera struggled in lots of conditions, though things improved over time, just as OnePlus does with its own releases as well.

The idea of the Surface Duo was that dual-screen glory of popping a workspace on one display, something else on the other, and being more productive, locked in, and able to work in different ways. Just like Samsung promises with the Galaxy Z Fold series…

In any case, price, availability, and exactly what Microsoft has done to haul the whole Surface Duo line out of the mud, should all be interesting when the time comes.

This seems not good:

Ouch.

The “good” news is that 2023’s climate crisis coverage has been a little better (Twitter).

But we’re basically on the brink and still ignoring the path we probably have to take before it’s just normal for your local area to be flooded, on fire, in extreme drought, or blown away by winds. Or all at once. 

Sorry! I’m usually full of optimistic hopes about our ability to throw money at technology solutions. The UK government is spending a billion pounds on new ideas and longer-duration energy storage contests and so on (pv magazine). But it’s all so early-stage, whereas this climate thing is progressing, you might say…

Have a good one,

Daily Authority: 🦅 Drone Delivery …Delivers!

Tristan Rayner / Android Authority

👋 Good morning! Nothing quite like a cozy sleep while there’s a bit of a storm outside, eh?

Delivering on a promise

A couple of days ago I linked to a paywalled piece about delivery drones: the short story being with the FAA on board through evolving (and less dense) regulation, deliveries by drone are picking up.

Drone deliveries were a sort of talking point in the mid-2010s. I think a lot of people either watched or heard about Amazon doing this via 60 Minutes in 2013, as promised packages would hit your door at rapid speed.

The Amazon Prime Air video, where the first full customer delivery happened in December 2023, which Jeff Bezos tweeted, was a big moment as well which felt like progress.

Then came the inevitable desert of drone deliveries: the hype was too big, things were slow. A 2023 pitch by Amazon executive Jeff Wilke said drone deliveries would happen “within months.”

A grim picture was painted by Wiredin 2023 about Amazon’s Prime Air struggles in the UK.

But things are happening:

The latest is that Wing, a real, active drone-delivery service that’s part of Alphabet and has been active in Australia and Finland, is launching a new run in the Dallas-Fort Worth area via Walgreens:

“Walgreens … will stage deliveries from a store parking lot in the town of Little Elm, Texas. Using Wing’s drone-delivery app, customers will be able to select from 100 items, including over-the-counter medicines and household essentials, a Walgreens spokesperson said.”

Deliveries are via a rope and hook system: The Wing drones speed along at 65mph, carrying up to 3.3 pounds of goods. A person attaches the delivery box to the drone hook, the drone reels it in, and then lowers packages to the ground for pickup in the same way.

It’s great that getting prescriptions, for example, can happen rapidly and easily, and pet prescriptions are possible via non-Walgreens options via Wing.

There’s a mention of getting ice cream too, which is true 2023 living.

Others:

The thing about drones is that they’re not really in cities, but more regional and rural areas, a reverse of usual tech trends.

The likes of Zipline have been buzzing in medicine to places like Kenya and North Carolina, vaccines to Ghana, and Walmart goods to Arkansas.

Manna does 2,000-3,000 daily flights in Ireland.

There’s plenty more, but the general sense is that there are a bunch of places where these drones are entirely normal.

But the FAA requires pilot oversight, and built-up cities aren’t part of operations yet, meaning the vast majority of people are wondering where their drones are at.

This is clever: The New York Times has a new WordleBot, which will give you some welcome feedback on your strategy/passive-aggressively insult your strategy.

The idea: “I’ll examine your puzzle and tell you what, if anything, I would have done differently.”

So in short, you complete the Wordle as you would normally, then open up the Wordle bot page for some feedback.

The people at Mashable are upset by this which I enjoy:

“My coworker, Mashable Australia editor Caitlin Welsh was equally offended by such a rigid approach to strategy, not because she made a bad guess, but because she did in fact have a strategy, and WordleBot was just too ignorant to see it. ‘Sorry WordleBot,’ she said, ‘my third guess today did exactly what I intended it to, which was confirm letter placement? It was not ‘wasted!’”

Daily Authority: Tim Cook All

Cook did get drawn on Facebook, dismissing Facebook’s aggressive stance against Apple’s approach to privacy and tracking. 

Cook said he was “shocked that there’s been a pushback to this degree” from Facebook, said he was “appalled” by silent data hoovering by online companies, and with Swisher pushing on some angles, Cook eventually said “Yeah, Kara, I’m not focused on Facebook.” 

Aside from that, ground was covered on two other spaces.

On AR:

Here’s the transcript of this interesting part, a quite revealing quote:

Tim Cook: Well, I can’t talk about anything that may or may not be in the pipeline. But in terms of AR, the promise of AR is that you and I are having a great conversation right now. Arguably, it could even be better if we were able to augment our discussion with charts or other things to appear. And your audience would also benefit from this, too, I think. And so when I think about that in different fields, whether it’s health, whether it’s education, whether it’s gaming, whether it’s retail, I’m already seeing AR take off in some of these areas with use of the phone. And I think the promise is even greater in the future.

Swisher: But it’s a critically important part of Apple’s future?

Cook: It is.

On cars:

Ok some interesting hints here — once again let’s go with the transcript here because there’s good back and forth, and each sentence here tells us something:

Kara Swisher: Mm-hmm. Last question on innovation, self-driving cars. One of the companies you acquired is Drive AI, a self-driving startup. Apple is testing autonomous vehicles. It was, reportedly. Last year, Elon Musk said he offered to sell Tesla to Apple for 1/10 its value. And he said you wouldn’t even take a meeting with him.

Tim Cook: You know, I’ve never spoken to Elon, although I have great admiration and respect for the company he’s built. I think Tesla has done an unbelievable job of not only establishing the lead, but keeping the lead for such a long period of time in the EV space. So I have great appreciation for them. In terms of the work that we’re doing there, obviously, I’m going to be a little coy on that. The autonomy itself is a core technology, in my view. If you sort of step back, the car, in a lot of ways, is a robot. An autonomous car is a robot. And so there’s lots of things you can do with autonomy. And we’ll see what Apple does. We investigate so many things internally. Many of them never see the light of day. I’m not saying that one will not.

Swisher: Would it be in the form of a car or the technology within a car?

Cook: Yeah, I’m not going to answer that question.

Swisher: I think it has to be a car. You can’t just do the tech — you’re not going to let — you’re not Google.

Cook: We love to integrate hardware, software, and services, and find the intersection points of those because we think that’s where the magic occurs. And so that’s what we love to do. And we love to own the primary technology that’s around that.

Thought:

Cook stepping up to a podcast probably isn’t exactly his favorite thing to do in a week, so exploring the reasons he would do it are interesting. 

Certainly, the podcast dives into the Facebook issue a lot, along with the App Store and Epic case as well, and Cook felt the need to be on the front-foot with it again telling us how we should think about the issue.

And as for the Apple Car, there are hints. 

There’s nothing unusual about Cook declining to detail plans for Apple’s automotive play, but the hints there are pretty strongly towards a whole car, not just software. Hardware, software, and services together plays into Apple’s own ecosystem ambitions.

And the quote around autonomy in regards to Tesla being a “core technology” reveals a lot, too.

Apple continues to grow its Apple Watch dominance in the smartwatch market, despite a host of cheap and often cheerful competitors now on the market. But it’s not cheap and cheerful that’s growing, which surprised me:

The data, via Counterpoint Research at Statista, show a market shift towards more expensive watches, “with premium vendors like Apple, Samsung and Garmin helping to shore up the high end”.

“2023’s biggest segment ($101-$200) shrank by 7% pts, while the more premium $300-plus segments grew by 8% pts”

Anecdotally, I’ve heard more than a few people picking up a device to fight the COVID 15, or the weight put on while stuck at home!

Daily Authority: Sony Steps Up The Earbud Game, And More

It’s a big deal because Sony is positioning these as the best in the business, taking on Apple AirPods Pro, the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds, and Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2, all of which are in the price range.

The details:

First of all, the new WF-1000XM4s retail for $280, which is $30 more than the Apple AirPods Pro, which means Sony is serious about what it is offering, and will give iPhone owners plenty to consider given what Apple promises.

Still, the XM4 earbuds pack a new Integrated Processor V1, which offers better active noise-cancelling. The new buds also have dual-noise sensor microphones, which all work to further dampen low-frequency sounds like plane noise or car engines.

The buds now support Sony’s own LDAC high-quality audio, while lower quality SBC and AAC are included too.

Sound quality is right up there and even better if you use the equalizer software included.

They’re smaller, but there’s better battery life, too. Our sister site SoundGuys ran some tests and found they lasted for around 7 hours and 43 minutes. That’s really solid.

The case is about 40% smaller overall, too.

Still, they’re $50 more than the previous XM3 model, making them a real premium device.

Reviews:

Our sister site SoundGuyshas reviewed the new buds as one of the best on the market, rating them an 8.2, and even better with a touch of equalizer adjustment.

The Verge awards an 8.5 and takes some marks off for a lack of Bluetooth multipoint, which only Jabra really does in the TWS market.

CNET (8.8) and Engadget(86/100) both worry that they might not fit smaller ears with the size.

My problem is the potential for losing them. I’ve only lost one earbud before, and haven’t since. But it’s such a common experience that I worry that spending $280 on these is an over-investment, especially if you use them day in, day out. 

I’d probably rather spend the cash on the trusty old-school-big over-ear WH-1000XM4 headphones which came out late last year.

For a specific use case, for example, when you travel on planes and want something sleek but with great ANC, these might make sense.

China has a herd of elephants wandering through the countryside, raising hell on an unusual march.

16 Asian elephants have been on the move through China’s south-west since March last year, on a trek of around 300 miles.

Wildlife authorities don’t know exactly why the elephants left their natural habitat but while on the move they’ve marched a path of impressive destruction, causing at least 6.8m yuan ($1.07m) in damages to buildings and structures.

In China, the journey of the elephants is followed 24 hours, with a team of eight people tracking the elephants both on the ground and by drone from the air. Millions tune in to watch them online, too.

This week though, things got a little hairy: “410 emergency personnel, 374 vehicles and 14 drones were deployed on Monday with more than two tonnes of elephant food, in continuing efforts to lead the elephants away from human areas, and to evacuate people in their path,” wrote The Guardian.

But what’s adorable is that the elephants got tired out, and took a nap, with video showing the herd taking a rest, along with a baby elephant shuffling about to find a comfy spot (CNN).

Daily Authority: Toyota’S First Ev Tease, Canoo, And More Tech News Today

Toyota isn’t saying much beyond the name X Prologue and this little microsite to go with it.

We do know Toyota has previously talked about its plans to reveal an electric SUV like the Rav4, aimed at the European market sometime in 2023. Given the timing of the launch of the X Prologue is on European time, maybe that’s it.

As we’ve talked about before, Toyota has been slow to release pure battery EVs vs hybrids but that’s now changing. Great!

It can carry around a 606-pound/275kg payload, plus the driver/rider.

It will debut at SXSW Online (South by Southwest) on March 17.

This is exciting for urban transport; I see non-electric versions of these around Berlin and they’re much, much faster for delivery.

The only problem I see is security, which probably means they won’t be for delivering packages but more hauling from point-to-point.

Nothing against Canoo, but this just looks so odd that it feels …unlikely?

I definitely don’t dislike the design, though, and Canoo is hyping up what it can do; “This is like no truck you’ve ever seen,” said Canoo executive chairman Tony Aquila in an interview. “It’s the size of a Ford Ranger, can take the payload of a full-sized pickup and the turning radius of a Prius.”

Per Engadget: “The specs promise more than 200 miles of range on a charge, with up to 600 HP and 550 lb-ft of torque in a dual-motor configuration, and a payload capacity of up to 1,800 pounds. At 76 inches, it’s one inch taller than Tesla’s Cybertruck but notably shorter than GMC’s 81.1-inch tall Hummer EV.”

No final specs or pricing yet, but pre-orders open Q2, apparently.

“Ottens, who studied to be an engineer, started working for Philips in 1952. Eight years later he became head of the firm’s recently introduced product development department. Within a year he and his team had developed the first portable tape recorder of which over a million were sold.

Two years later he revolutionised the old reel-to-reel tape system by inventing the cassette tape. 

‘I got annoyed with the clunky, user-unfriendly reel to reel system, it’s that simple’, Ottens said later. The new carrier had to be small enough to fit into his jacket pocket, Ottens decided, and he had a wooden model made to determine the ideal size.

In 1963 the first plastic encased cassette tape was presented at an electronics fair.

The tapes were quickly copied by the Japanese but in different formats. 

Ottens managed to make a deal with Sony to use the mechanism patented by Philips to introduce a standard cassette which was then rolled out globally.”
