Good morning. News-packed week is just warming up for what’s to come in the next few weeks – with Microsoft Design (May 24-26) and Apple WWDC (June 6-10). We’ve got Google, a bunch of vacuuming, big advertising, and Twitter decisions to follow (now at a new level). Enjoy reading, recommend Interfaces to your friends and see you in the next issue – Henrique.
PS: Thanks for the comments over the past week – they were great and many of them made sense for what we thought of the future of the article.
PS 2: We are 3 years old and forgot to celebrate!
GOOGLE I / OEA GAMES
Much of what Google reports on the annual Google I / O presentation makes us think that the future (albeit a bit dystopian) is pretty cool.
Although it’s preparing for the world (not to mention the crooked moments of the metaverse) with a lot of reality – now in real time, not years ago with Google Glass not true – or with mirror patterns that translate the words into real. time (it is a period where presentation technology can not be provided want to cry).
Or even when editing maps of some of the world’s capitals and allowing access to public (!) Places, one of the “oooooh” moments of significance.
But it all has to do with the non-new concept that Google calls “ambient computing”. It is the Nest Hub with the screen that acknowledges you and responds to commands without having to say “OK Google” or all the hardware presented at the event.
Nothing sells, but almost everything at a price, from a smartwatch to a headset, from a mid-range to high-end smartphone. Everything Apple already does with its mix of devices and software, without the ambient name of computing and running Android 13.
There is even promise for betting on tablets, including software upgrades (after all, foldable smartphones are tablets) and previous generations of hope with future announcements. ahead of 2023 on tablets by Google. The tablet has not yet come out, not good, but it was once considered ugly.
I remember the Nexus 7 (the one that sparked the battle between Asus and Google in Brazil and only happened as a result of the fire of the existing product market, but that’s another story). people).
My first iPod was a 1st generation shuffle, one that looked like a large flash drive. Then I also had a couple of iPod nanos (models with video, of course), another challenge of people having a clip to attach to my pocket and I ended up stuffing with the iPod touch ( do not ask for generations) who are with me. much until smartphones came into place.
Now, almost 21 years after the first iPod, the product market – which is not widely understood today – comes down the line in design, with media reports announcing that the model will end up being sold until the product is marketed.
There is a gadget that is changing the world and that we are nostalgic about (wait for the little iPod blanket, since the Mac OS Finder is already there).
An iPhone with a USB-C connector? That’s what Dinah’s parent industry analysts say will happen in 2023. Or just prepare for the European Union’s proposal to standardize chargers from all manufacturers.
But if you, dear reader, have the money to buy the recently announced top-of-the-line Xiaomi 12, you may choose which one: the boss, for R $ 9,500 (expensive over 128 GB iPhone 13 Pro), or directly import into sites always recommended by youtubers, for R $ 3,500?
Our theory of integration like, which has been through groups and discussions between journalists and stakeholders, is that for the matrix it does not matter – only sales , regardless of where the money comes from.
In time: next week realme announces its flagship GT2 Pro, with excellent specifications. Is it expensive?
WHO WILL USE
That 5G, already delayed, will be more delayed for broadcasts in Brazilian cities?

This week, Elon Musk said so Trump can come back, because this is possible.
It also creates a false controversy about the app use straws – is a roulette wheel randomness which rotates around the man’s head. It looks like you saw Twitter yesterday – but this is 2022, not 2011, where the better naivete gets.
The excuse for the delay is that the number of counterfeits on the platform is checked. As of yesterday (12), Twitter market value has fallen by US $ 9 billion since the announcement of the purchase and the head of Twitter has started to roll.
On the other hand, it is worth reading the profile of the guy who takes care of the Musk family’s finances.
Errr, there is a clone / depth of Elon Musk in China. Not even the first know if it is real or uproar – we bet on the uproar.
