Google wants to charge you £3 more for a slightly improved dongle

Google releases an improved headphone jack adapter with better battery life

Even after making relaxing of Apple for removing the headphone jack in 2016, Google ended up removing the port itself accurate one yr later. "Witchcraft", you cry, but no: Google says this is absolutely true when compared to the performance of the existing Pixel 2 headphone adapter. Because of this, customers have to use adapters if they want to use headphones and other wired audio accessories that offer a 3.5mm connection. Not only is Google hosting the press conference at a later date than expected, but the event was also moved to NY. Meanwhile, one much anticipated device is not expected to be presented, as Google has confirmed in an interview with Tom's Guide that it will not be releasing a new version of their Pixel Watch this year.

Last week, Google started sending out invitations to the press for its next big hardware event, set to take place in New York City. It's also ever-so-slightly smaller than the 2017 adapter, measuring in at 3.67 in. long, 0.46 in. wide, and 0.3 in. tall, and weighing just 0.17g. This change is reportedly due to a more power-efficient design.

Swedish election: Nationalists ‘make gains’ in early exit polls ZlotoNews
The leader of a far-right party that campaigned with an anti-migrant message says the party has "won" Sweden's national election. That could prove fatal for the Alliance, with the Liberal and Centre parties repeatedly ruling out a deal with the far-right.

Of course, the search giant is trying to justify the premium by claiming the new adapter provides "38% more playback time and has a 53% improvement on plug-in latency than previously available Pixel 2 headphone adapter". We'll see if the company will carve out a few moments to talk about an updated dongle.
