Scosche's new arm mount lets you watch Netflix in the shower hands-free

Scosche seems to know what it's doing when it comes to making wirelessly-charging phone mounts that don't get in the way of your vehicle's climate control vents.

Pixel 4 supports up to 11W fast wireless charging on third-party chargers

A lot of hubbub was caused by the discovery that the Pixel 3's wireless charging was limited to 5W on third-party pads. Even though the device was clearly able to fill up at 10W with the Pixel Stand, other brands of chargers weren't able to supply that much power unless they were accepted into the Made by Google program. The Pixel 4 eschews this ridiculous restriction and can charge wirelessly at up to 11W, even on third-party Qi pads.
