The Radiocube is a neat idea that will be debuting at CES 2008 (I won't be there, so hopefully the rest of the Giz guys will keep their eyes peeled for it.) There are no buttons on the wi-fi device, and not even an on-off button, so how the devil does it work?It's simple—and it all depends on how you stand the dice-like gizmo. The Radiocube's creator, Cambridge Consultants, reckons that we only listen to four stations at a time. So, four of its six sides correspond to the stations, the fifth is a speaker, and the sixth the equivalent of an Off button. Once you've programmed it to your four fave sites (something they say will be revealed next month in Vegas, baby) stand it on any of the four sides and there you go, the show of your choice.

This results in a smarter, more intuitive experience that feels very different from the hardware-driven approaches employed by many of Google’s competitors. 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.
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.
