|Google Insider Leaks Stunning Pixel 4 Design|
Consumer TechI write about technology's biggest companies
Google’s new Pixel 3a is by far the best sub-$500 smartphone you can buy. But the Pixel 4 is where all the most excitement lies and now it’s easy to see why.
Google Pixel 4 concept based on leaks
In a new tweet, SlashLeaks, the site now run by remarkably accurateleaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, has revealed the Pixel 4 has an all-new design. And it shows Google will finally give the Pixel range some style with a perfect hybrid of the Galaxy S10+ and iPhone XS, following years of wrapping great tech in dated chassis.
Slashleaks obtained its images via case maker Skinomi, which is so confident in its sources that it is already taking pre-orders from customers. The bad news, however, is Skinomi is only selling a screen protector at this stage so we don’t get a look at the back of the phone. With Google widely expected to move the Pixel range to dual or even triple cameras (my understanding is dual), that’s a key point of interest.
Google accidentally confirmed the Pixel 4 back in March but, until now, the key details have largely remained a mystery. This is in complete contrast to the Pixel 3 which, arguably, was the most leaked smartphone of last year.

So at this point, we merely have a wishlist. Google nailing the design was one, but it is also essential that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL come with more RAM than their predecessors, larger storage options and bigger batteries. Google’s Pixels still have the world’s best point and shoot smartphone cameras, while rivals have increasingly gone for gimmicks, but the rest of the phone now needs to step up.
You’ve cracked one piece of the puzzle Google. Now with Apple and Samsung both struggling, it’s time to deliver on the rest.

Xi will have to make a deal because companies who are leaving in trickles will flee like mice on a sinking ship.
China thought it was going to continue to sell its junk to us while we sit back and let them rip us off from stem to stern. Now was the time to make a deal in our interest. Low inflation, low interest rates, and full employment. If Xi saw 1 million people protesting in Hong Kong as a threat what do you think will happen when 1/2 billion people can't put food on the table. A deal is coming and Trump will easily be re-elected.

|here handyman... escalating tensions between China and Taiwan. China believes Taiwan is theres and is saying loud and proud they will take it back... with force if necssary... Educate yourself... this article is a week old|
Tensions between Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China (PRC) are surging to an alarming extent. The latest indicator is the recent exchange of heated rhetoric between Gen. Wei Fenghe, China’s Minister of National Defense, and Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council, the Taiwanese government’s chief policymaking body dealing with cross-strait relations. As Taiwan’s self-proclaimed protector, Washington should be extremely worried about these developments.
Speaking on June 1 at the Shangri-La Dialogue, an annual multilateral conference on Pacific security issues, Wei warned against efforts either in Taiwan or foreign countries to thwart China’s goal of reunification. Moreover, “any underestimation of the PLA’s resolve and will is extremely dangerous.” Wei added ominously that, “If anyone dares to split Taiwan from China, the Chinese military will have no choice but to fight at all costs, at all costs, (sic.) for national unity. If the PLA cannot even safeguard the unity of our motherland, what do we need it for?”
The Mainland Affairs Council responded with equally harsh and uncompromising language. In a statement issued the following day, the council reasserted that Taiwan has never been a part of the PRC and would never accept Beijing’s control or threats. It accused China not only of “challenging international norms and order,” but added the gratuitous slap that Beijing’s claim to seek peaceful development was “a lie of the ages.” Lest anyone not fully grasp the extent of Taipei’s hostility toward the PRC, the statement went on: “We need to remind the public that the Chinese Communist Party is practicing anti-democracy, anti-peace between the two sides of the strait and further resorting to war. This is the main cause of the tension in the Taiwan Strait and the region, and it is the source of danger and provocation against peace and stability.”
There are multiple signs from various sources of growing U.S. backing for Taiwan’s de facto independence. Congress certainly is stepping up its support. By a unanimous voice vote in early May, the House of Representatives passed the Taiwan Assurance Act, which expresses firm support for Taiwan while urging Taipei to increase its own defense spending. The legislation also recommends that Washington continue “regular sales of defense articles” to Taiwan and back Taipei’s participation in international organizations—something Beijing emphatically resists.
