The hardware in Google's latest phone, developed in house and using parts from flagging former flagship HTC, doesn't look from the outside like a revolution. It is a 5-inch phone (or 5.5-inch for $190 more) with an 820 Snapdragon processor, a 1440 x 2560 display, up to 128GB of storage and a fingerprint reader on the back. If you are confusing it with nearly every other Android smartphone released this year that's OK. They're all basically the same.

After months of rumours we're getting our first look at Google's new phones, the Pixel and Pixel XL. The phones are a huge freaking deal for Google, because they are the first flagship Android phones from the company that don't use the "Nexus" brand name. More than a change in name, the phones reflect Google's biggest ideas yet about how you interact with the device you carry everywhere.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
