We all know that Segways are far from cool, but skateboards generally do meet the requirements for things that we'd be seen on in public. What happens if you combine the two? You get the iSlide concept, a weird-looking skateboard loaded up with fuel cells and the balancing mechanism of a Segway. You'll need at least some balance to ride it, but it does sound like fun. I'm still not sold on how cool it'll make you look, but as long as photos of Woz playing polo on it don't come out, it should stay at least a few steps above the original Segway if it ever officially comes out.

After first announcing the Mate 20 at IFA last month (and throwing some serious shade at Apple on Twitter), the time has almost come for it to finally be unveiled. And as it happens, you can watch all the action right here.
The history of smartphone improvement has largely relied on companies cramming faster or more powerful components into the now ubiquitous glass slabs we carry around. But the Pixel 3 is something else. Instead of focusing on things like a brighter screen, tons of RAM, or multiple rear cameras, almost all of the Pixel 3's advantages come from a software-first mindset.

And while this isn’t Google’s first attempt at something like this, this third Pixel (we evaluated both it and the Pixel 3 XL) is the device that really pulls all of Google’s efforts together and makes it feel special.
