Because of course they are.

The IDC says Google shipped only 3.9 million Pixel phones in 2017. That’s good, in that it is double the previous year’s shipments. On the other hand, the IDC says Apple shipped 215.8 million iPhones in 2017, which works out to 4.15 million a week. So Apple ships more phones in a week than Google does in a year.
It’s certainly worth noting that while Apple has been making the iPhone and its various successors for the better part of ten years, Google has really only been serious about moving handsets for roughly a year and a half.
This comparison is ridiculous.
I know I’m super late to the party but Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a beautiful game, clearly has a Gone Home or Vanishing of Ethan Carter vibe to it. 🎮
The broadcast feature on Google Home is the best.
Spending the evening backing up and installing the newest build of Raspbian on my Raspberry Pi. @pyrmont, this is 100% your fault. 😂
Between the Venom Inc crossover and the throwaway issue with Zodiac, getting caught up on Amazing Spider-Man has been a real challenge. I can’t wait until we get a new creative team, which I’m sure will bring some life back to the series. 📚
It’s encouraging to see Harrison Ford involved in any way with Solo. The trailer looked great and Ford’s advisory, particularly his approval of the script, leaves me hopeful.

Seriously, there’s not even a quick tease or jump-scare or over-the-shoulder shot or anything! Take out the title card, and this could quite literally be a trailer for almost any action movie on the planet.
Not exactly the best first impression for a movie that’s so important for Sony and is already on shaky ground with fans.
Nice to see The Verge is still here to remind us how upset they all are about losing the headphone jack on their phones.
This made a ton of sense when it was rumoured several months ago and even more now that Google’s intensified their hardware efforts. As a heavy Google and Nest user, I’m excited to see what this means for both companies.
This week’s pull list is a doozy. 📚
