Google Pixelbook 

Is it a laptop ? Is it a tablet ?  Or is it a chromebook ? Well the short answer no , thats because it does all of this as the new PixelBook  bridges the gap between the pixel c and the Chrome OS powered laptops as it features support for the web based OS and Android apps making it versatile for almost any occation . The device on paper goes toe to toe with the Apple Macbook and Microsofts own surface fleet with its hardware specs , but software might still be in its infancy (but casual or mostly web content users would probably not notice the difference and in some sorts prefer the pixelbook as the Android app intergration gives it an edge over their Apple and Windows countrrparts) . The device , which is expected to start at $999 .

Specs
12.3" IPS LCD ,2400x1600 resolution(235ppi)
Aluminum unibody with a Gorilla glass 5 insert - 11.4"x8.7"x0.4"
10 hour battery
Dual USB C ports , headphone jack
Optional wacom stylus (Pixelbook Pen)
*Intel Core i5,8GB ram , 128GB SSD (base) -$1000
*Intel Core i5 ,8GB ram , 256GB SSD -$1200
*Intel Core i7 ,16GB ram ,512GB NVMe SSD -$1650

Google Clips

This is Google's first automatic camera . The system , which is designed to capture unique moments based on you and whats around you might sound a bit  Orwellian ,but the whole system only sends out data if you want to share it only ,so it is safe for home(plus it has a light when it starts recording) . The camera basically scans its surroundings for anything of importance and tracks its movements  - eg : your cat throws your phone off the table . And it compiles the event and saves it for you in the form of a photo , a gif or a short video . This is great if you have small children or pets and no camera or phone around you to capture those special moments . And if you place it right , the unit will also capture you in frame as well - something you can't do in a conventional family video . Overall the automatic camera design is quite good for a first gen product. The Google clips camera costs $249

Specs

*130 degree field of view
*15fps (gif speed)
*16GB native storage
*manual shutter button
*wifi direct for sharing to Android or iOS device
*3 hours of usage

Google Pixel Buds

Just a simple pair of earbuds ? Well ..no ...the new Pixel buds go beyond what conventional earbuds do and is a smart ,wireless accessory which would complement your phone as it features access to the Google assistant , so with one tap , you can ask your assistant anything , including direct translations (see below for a quick demo)

Home Max
Designed around 2x 25w woofers , the Max is the most powerful smart assistant speaker yet . The system works similar to the mini and offers 4 LED's when the assistant is listening , the microphone placement also allows your speaker to hear you even when the bass drops . Pricing is said to be $399.
