So much has been happening in the tech world that as soon as you have bought iPhone's latest release, a new one is scheduled to be unveiled in a few days.
The pacing of news is almost lightning fast, thanks in part to the advent of social media.
Here's what's going down in the tech world.
Moto Z2 leaked?
Promotional material for an unannounced modular phone has been spotted on an official Chinese Motorola webpage by smartphone watchdog site Androidheadlines.com. The photo was taken down shortly after posting, but not before fueling speculation. Could it be Moto Z2 or Moto Z2 Force? Motorola has yet to comment on the matter, but growing up with the brand, we know one when we see one.
Messenger ads are the worst
People complaining about pop-ups isn't new. What makes online advertising more annoying is its nature. Take for instance, the commercials in the updated Facebook Messenger application. According to TechCrunch, they're "huge, interrupt the user experience, and irrelevant." Zuck might be slowly turning into Tony Stark, but he needs to address these minor issues first.
The next Google Pixel XL?
Android Police has released images of what seems to be the next line of Google's pixel phones. It essentially looks like the original version, only "more refined all around" as per The Verge. The rumored next XL reportedly borrows features from LG G6 (aspect ratio), Samsung's Galaxy S8 (overall aesthetic), and HTC (squeezable sides), which did the first iteration.
Logitech's astronomical acquisition
The global computer accessory provider will have another item to advertise other than its trusty mice, after purchasing headset company ASTRO Gaming for $85 million. According to The Verge, Logitech made the move to "gain a better foothold in the console market." Its vice president, Ujesh Desai, believes that ASTRO is the "perfect complement to Logitech G's focus on PC gaming."
