iPhone 8 sales a disaster. I predicted it. Next up iPhone X will also be a disaster because:
1. Apple won't be able to manufacture enough
2. Customers who will buy iPhone X will be frustrated by the display nudge and by the lack of fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. To the point that customers will not recommend it to their friends and returns might even be high as customers will not be overly happy to have paid $1000 for that.

LG's Plastic OLED isn't as super as Samsung's Super AMOLED... probably because Samsung has a bunch of years head-start, Samsung started to ship their AMOLED in 2008 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_N85

Google's ARM SoC (placed on Pixel2/XL PCB as a secondary chipset working in parallel with the Snapdragon 835 chipset?) is called Pixel Visual Core which Google will enable as a developer option in its preview of Android Oreo 8.1, before updating the Android Camera API to allow access to HDR+ for third-party camera devs. They call this an Octa-core Image Processing Unit (IPU) with a ninth core the ARM Cortex-A53 core that runs, Google says it can handle HDR+ duties, resulting in HDR+ performance that is “5x faster and uses less than 1/10th the energy”. While to be used to speed up HDR+ for a start, it may be used for other real-time offline machine learning features in the future.

Great job Huawei with your PC Mode! I hear the Phoenix OS team may have collaborated with Huawei to make it work. Is it HDMI over USB Type-C alt-mode? (as I filmed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JybuuDNuDRY0) Is that cable used one that directly takes the USB Type-C to HDMI? Did Huawei/Hisilicon include HDMI or DisplayPort on the Kirin 970 SoC for use with their USB Type-C alt mode? And can Type-C docks be used to output display and add USB Host ports and other things like SD card reader and power delivery at the same time? I just wish the Huawei Mate 10 had the fingerprint reader on the back like every other Mate since Mate 7 (why put it at the bottom?? Isn't there plenty enough space to keep the fingerprint reader on the back?) and I wish Huawei would price it at €499 or below, and not at €699. Comon Huawei, don't you want to sell more than 10 million pieces of it? Wasn't there supposed to be a Mate 10 Lite with exactly the same specs just perhaps the €499 retail price and with a 1080p LCD instead of the 2K RGBW LCD display? I think it's good there is a headphone jack on the Huawei Mate 10 but it's disappointing that there is no headphone jack on the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Is it really impossible for them to make Mate 10 Pro waterproof with the headphone jack still there? And how about releasing a €299-€499 Huawei Matebook X style Lapdock that runs off the Mate 10 and thus does not come with any Intel CPU etc and to sell it at below €499 preferably closer to €299 for the most excellent keyboard, mousepad and display Lapdock. With some sort of smartphone grip stand same as used in cars to carry the phone right next to the laptop display when holding all with one hand. And does PC Mode work over Chromecast and Miracast/WiFi-display if you want to do it wirelessly? It should, right? Google and Huawei and Samsung should have some kind of fund of €10 Million to help third party app developers so they can spend the engineering required to optimize a whole bunch of important apps to look best in full productivity mode. And that NPU AI Processor, I wish it was promoted and somehow supported by the dual camera system to do Project Tango like real-time smooth and precise 3D depth augmented reality support? I really wish there would be support for an indoor Google Maps where users collaborate to add augmented information and recognition of everything in every store everywhere to use that AI capability to help users augment the world. Is that dual camera setup and the AI processor enough to enable full real-time 3D capturing like in Project Tango?

Yes Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn must cancel Brexit. If Theresa May is trapped and cannot cancel it then Jeremy Corbyn must somehow take over power in a new snap election and he must cancel Brexit.

Thanks Google for nothing in the robotics market. Google can't even release a Chromebook or a phone correctly. How are they going to release a robot?

iPhone manufacturing and sale to be banned in China. Good luck getting it made in the USA with Trump. There will be no layoffs all manufacturing at Foxconn can instantly be shifted towards Android Snapdragon and Android Hisilicon Powered Smartphone manufacturing instead.
