It’s the end of another week, and Google had an event on Oct 4, where they introduced a number of hardware products. The three products that caught my eye were the Pixel phone, Google Wifi, and Google Home.

What was also interesting to me was the emergence of Artificial Intelligence, throughout the product portfolio. Something we hear more and more of and finally starting to make it into mainstream products.

If you missed the announcement this week, I have a link below from Techcrunch that sums up the major points, along with other community posts. Enjoy!
