Did Uber Steal Google’s Intellectual Property? | The New Yorker
The bigger question: are any of these companies operating with any sort of ethics? "You don’t need to know that history to build on what they made. In technology, all that matters is tomorrow."

Google AI Blog: See Better and Further with Super Res Zoom on the Pixel 3
Digital zoom using algorithms (rather than lenses) has long been the “ugly duckling” of mobile device cameras. (via Pocket at October 15, 2018 at 04:13PM )

Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL review: the best camera gets a better phone • The Verge
Dieter Bohn likes the camera and thinks it scratches easily and yada yada but this I found worthwhile:
<p>By far, the coolest software feature on the Pixel 3 (which is also coming to the Pixel 2) is Call Screening. When a phone call comes in, you can tap a button to screen it. When you do, a semi-robotic voice will speak to your caller and ask them why they’re calling. You watch this happen via text in real time on your screen, and the caller’s response is similarly transcribed for you as they speak.

When the call is active, you can tap a few pre-canned buttons to ask follow-up questions, hit a button to answer, or hit a button to hang up. It’s seriously useful and seriously impressive. Like everybody else, I get a ton of spam calls, and I sometimes feel like those unknown numbers might actually be real. It’s richly, darkly satisfying to know that I’m forcing a robocall to talk to a Google robot.</p>

Dan Seifert, a senior editor at The Verge, <a href="">raved about this feature</a> on Twitter. Though "there's a lot of spam calling, let's make it easier to screen them" slightly reminds me of the American solution to the fact that it's years behind getting electronic payments between people sorted out, and so relies on cheques a lot.

Solution: produce software that OCRs the cheques. Not "sort out the electronic payment system"?
