All Pixel Phones Guaranteed to Get Timely Updates; Amazon Wades Into Music Streaming; More in Five for Wednesday


  1. Some people interested in Google’s new phone — the Pixel — were worried that purchasing the device through Verizon would delay delivery of Android updates. To the delight of many potential Pixel purchasers, that won’t be the case.
  2. Into a fairly crowded marketplace strolls another music streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited. If you’re a Prime subscriber, it will set you back $7.99/month; if you’re an Echo user, the price drops to $3.99. Wow.
  3. Anker (you may know them as makers of pretty awesome mobile chargers) is entering the automotive goods market. First out of the gate: a heads-up display.
  4. In Wired, President Obama talks about artificial intelligence and the future of technology.
  5. If you knew that the person generally recognized as the first computer programmer lived over 150 years ago, you’d want to know more, right? Here you go: a documentary on “the Countess of Computers,” Ada Lovelace.
