Even though it is almost October, the major technology companies continue to surprise us with announcements of brand-new items. It was Google’s time to showcase its newest products this week, and they did not disappoint.
Google has introduced the Pixel Watch, the firm’s first wristwatch release since it acquired the wearable startup Fitbit. The new Pixel 7 phone is, of course, also part of the mix, but the Pixel Watch is an entirely separate product.

Julian suggests that you watch the show Cyberpunk: Edgerunners on Netflix. Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World is a book written by Mark Kurlansky that comes highly recommended by Mike.
Both the book Meme Wars: The Untold Story of the Online Battles Upending Democracy in America by Emily Dreyfuss, Joan Donovan, and Brian Friedberg and the 24-part CNN documentary from the 1990s about the Cold War are highly recommended by Lauren.
Meme Wars: The Untold Story of the Online Battles Upending Democracy in America was written by Emily Dreyfuss, Joan Donovan, and Brian Friedberg.
