Google's Pixel 6 might play interpreter on your next vacation

According to the latest Pixel 6 leak, the Pro will have fast charging at up to 33 watts.

Tuesday's iPhone 13 announcement brought out plenty of opinions, but the phrase I've seen repeated the most often is, "it's boring." While I admit that most of the presentation fell flat for me, largely because I'm not really interested in switching to an iPhone, there were two segments that highlighted exactly what it is I wish I could get from the phones I do buy: better video creation.
