Path of Exile Mobile announced by Grinding Gear Games, and it looks great

In the wake of last year's announcement for Diablo Immortal, it was clear the mobile gaming scene was ripe for a quality ARPG release, and Grinding Gear Games has just swept in to announce Path of Exile Mobile. The title is being developed in-house, and the developers say this mobile version will buck the platform's "bullshit trends," which plays directly into Blizzard's snafu last year. Amazingly Grinding Gear Games is very aware of mobile gaming's downsides, and so has gone out of its way to release a trailer that states the company is concentrating its efforts on making a good game that avoids the evil garbage mobile games are known for.

Google video shows off a Pixel 4 Motion Sense DJ setup — it's as awkward as it sounds (Update: Making of)

We first saw Google's Project Soli radar at I/O a few years back, and it seemed magical. The version that just launched on the Pixel 4 is somewhat... less magical. It only does a few things, and it doesn't even work in many parts of the world. Google is trying hard to convince us that Motion Sense is useful, though. Its latest attempt comes in the form of a DJ "music experiment," and it's impressively bad.

John Legere won't be going to WeWork after all, staying with T-Mobile

Legere reportedly staying put

According to CNBC, the allure of turning WeWork around wasn't enough to sway John Legere from his magenta throne.

Sources who asked not to be named claimed that Legere "has no plans to leave the company." Furthermore, he was never the first choice for the job, they say. Given the intertwined nature of SoftBank between Sprint and WeWork and the upcoming T-Mobile/Sprint merger, it's possible that a move between the two companies could be seen as a potential conflict of interest — not that it matters now.

Google helps you practice pronouncing new words with mobile Search

How do you pronounce quokka? Pronunciation can be difficult to perfect, especially with a language containing as many silly, varied rules as English. Practice, though, helps solidify a skill. Google has provided pronunciation guides since April of this year. Now, they'll also give you the chance to vocally practice your pronunciation of American English, and, "soon," Spanish.

Google reveals The Claw, a phone mount for the Stadia controller

Earlier today, two Google Stadia team members hosted an AMA on Reddit to answer people's questions about the upcoming Stadia game streaming service. Although the Q&A session dampened some of our enthusiasm for Stadia by revealing a bunch of missing day-one features, the AMA contained a pleasant surprise: Google made a phone mount for the Stadia controller, and it is called "The Claw."

(Update: Fix coming) Pixel 4 Snapchat, Instagram videos plagued by maddening 'clicking' sounds

At launch, no Pixel is without its issues, and the most recent problem might sound a bit familiar for those of you that remember the Pixel 2. A minority of Pixel 4 owners are experiencing what is alternately described as a popping, clicking, or tapping sound in videos recorded through third-party apps like Snapchat and Instagram.
