A free software update turns your Nest Cam IQ Indoor into a Google Assistant speaker.
Fitting, since that's where the new sedans will be produced.
For $35 a month, the beta version of this game streaming service needs to stop tripping over itself.
Conspiracy theories surrounding the Florida school shooting are spreading rapidly Facebook and, at one point, propelled a video to the top-trending spot on YouTube.
Google clearly has a goal of putting the Google Assistant just about everywhere. Today you can find it in smartphones, tablets, laptops, TVs, watches, smart speakers, headphones and soon, smart displays. There's one place you haven't seen the Assistant, though: a camera. Today Google is fixing that by updating the Next Cam IQ with Google Assistant support. The device is now basically a mini Google Home with a camera on top.
The Nest Cam IQ is Nest's top-of-the-line indoor camera, with a 4K sensor and an outrageously powerful (for a camera) six-core processor. All that power is put to work crunching that 4K video feed down to a more reasonable 1080p size, with the 4K sensor used to power the "12x digital zoom" feature available for its app. The Nest Cam IQ has always featured a microphone and speaker for remote communication, and now it will also be put to work to power your usual Google Assistant commands.
With the update, you'll be able to speak the usual "OK Google" commands, and the blue ring around the Nest Cam IQ will light up to show it's listening. Just like every other Google Assistant device, it supports questions, smart home commands, making shopping lists, buying stuff, controlling Chromecasts, and a score of other things.
Some users claim right-wing beliefs have been discriminated against by the crackdown.
It's just a set of chairs built into the cargo area, but I'm surprised nobody's done this before.

The Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality rules will officially come off the books two months from now, as the FCC is set to take the final step necessary to make the repeal official.
The FCC voted to repeal the rules on December 14, but the repeal takes effect 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. The Federal Register publication is scheduled to happen on Thursday this week.
That means the repeal will take place on or about April 23. But the lawsuits to overturn the repeal can get started this month or in early March.
Arm's Kigen software will allow for SIM cards in IoT devices, meaning they could get online without Wi-Fi, and eventually, maybe, through 5G.
Mitigation for chip design vuln

BELLEVUE, Washington—Virtual reality has been a thing for years, yet for some reason, it has had a lack of real-time strategy (RTS) games. To this, I can't help but say, what gives? Managing a giant army à la StarCraft seems like a nice fit for VR's mix of hand-tracked controllers and first-person twists—while also minding VR's limits. Stand above a battlefield (or, if your room is cramped, sit without losing the effect). Use your hands to become a war puppeteer. Enjoy a refreshing control and perspective alternative to ancient, mouse-driven menus.
It's a VR no-brainer... that nobody has truly attempted until this week.
Unlike other RTS-ish games in VR, this week's Brass Tactics is the first full-blown take on the genre to see a retail release. It's not perfect—indeed, it has a couple of glaring issues ahead of its Thursday launch—but Brass Tactics is clearly a few steps above "just good enough." It functions as a pure, solid RTS, while it also comes packed with nice VR touches. Best of all, thanks to a free, unlimited, works-online demo version, every single VR owner out there (even outside the Oculus ecosystem) can try it for themselves—and try it they should.Clear RTS skies
