Google Home is still in the early stages of development but here s everything we know at this hour.Users will be able to customize the base through a variety of different colors of either fabric or metal.Its three primary tasks are to provide music and entertainment throughout a home, manage everyday tasks on your behalf and make the power of Google search accessible via voice commands through what s called the Google assistant.As such, you ll be able to control your lights, thermostats, switches and more simply by using voice commands.Again, basic tasks like checking the weather or seeking out facts on Wikipedia will be possible but you ll also be able to ask complex tasks like how much fat is in an avocado or the jersey number of your favorite athlete.You can even ask follow-up questions in which Google will understand the context and return the correct answer.
You probably ask Google 100 things every day - but now you're going to do it with your voice instead of your keyboard.Just say "We want to bring the kids to this one" and it'll bring up PG-friendly showings and ask if you want to book a ticket.Say yes and it'll buy your tickets, putting a QR code on your phone so you can walk right through the lobby and into the theatre.Check - just ask for an album and it ll start playing on one speaker, and you can set it to stream to every Google Home speaker at once, multi-room style.With no buttons, subtle LEDs and removable fabric shells that mean you can customise each speaker to match the room it s in, Google Home looks that little bit slicker than Amazon s Echo.Google is still tweaking the design and features, but expect to get your hands on Google Home later this year.

Google Levis Wearable JacketTouch-sensitive clothing has been one of the promised inventions coming in just a few years for a while now.DON T MISS: Apple s stores have gone from serious to absurd in 15 yearsThe project falls within the domain of ATAP, Google s skunk-works special projects division, and is codenamed Project Jacquard.The touch-sensitive panel is woven directly into the fabric of the jacket, and Levi s says it is as tough as the rest of the material — most importantly, it s even washable.That same band houses LEDs, which help with the notifications.All in all, it looks like a slick way to deal with basic phone functions, without having to pull your handset out of your pocket.It reminds me a lot of the Pebble smartwatch, which has limited functionality but can be used without even looking, thanks to the physical buttons.
This year, the two have announced that the Jacquard jacket will soon be available for sale.The Jacquard smart jacket looks like your average denim jacket, but will allow wearers to answer phones, access navigation, control music, and more.The conductive fabric is sewn into the arm, and turns the cuff into a swipeable surface you can use to control apps from your jacket.Google and Levi s say the jacket is designed for the commuter, so cyclists can keep their eye on the road and simply tap away at their jacket sleeve to control apps.Whether this is the most optimal way to use apps while you re commuting is to be determined, but it does give us an interesting glimpse at the direction of smart clothing.Price and availability have not been disclosed.
This week the folks at Google's Advanced Technology and Project group aka ATAP have announced their first Project Jacquard release.This is touch-sensitive material - textiles that can sense when your skin comes in contact with it.So says Paul Dillinger, Levi's VP of Innovation.He detailed the jacket to a crowd this week at Google I/O 2016, Google's yearly developer conference.Google's Jacquard technology is used to create a wearable platform on which developers can develop and users can expand usability by adding connected apps, devices, and features.There's also a Jacquard app - coming soon as well - for connections to apps.
Google's ATAP division likes to pioneer surprising things, including the Project Ara modular phone and Project Tango 3D-mapping phones and tablets - and its latest creation is a wearable device.Actually, it's a jacket.Long story short, the Levi's Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket features touch-sensitive fabric on a cuff, which acts like a trackpad on your wrist.With taps and swipes on the jacket, you'll be able to answer or decline calls, change your music playlist, get audio directions or tips on nearby locations via your headphones, and interact with apps like Spotify, Google Maps, and Strava.The touch tech is subtly built into the fabric, so you don't have to worry about having a silly looking, enlarged cuff in view at all times, but you will need to remove the Jacquard chips before popping the jacket in the washing machine.You'll be able to get your hands on the Levi's Commuter x Jacquard jacket in spring 2017, although no price has been announced.

Your blacks and your whites clothes can be are tricky items in the washing machine.The good folks at Consumer Reports have some tried-and-tested tips to stop your black clothes from fading and your white clothes from becoming dingy.Pat Slaven, Textile Engineer at Consumer Reports, has some simple recommendations that anyone can follow.For black clothes, turn them inside out before putting them in the machine, always use only cold water, and never put them in the dryer.For white clothes, mark a fill line in the detergent cap to know the right amount each time; and use bleach *only* on 100% cotton clothes, not any other fabric.Check out the full video for other tips, like using the sun to naturally bleach your whites—it s an awesome demonstration.!
The government is introducing a thing it calls the Bus Services Bill, a framework that wants to fix the country's piecemeal approach to bus operations and hand back more controlling power to local councils.The new law will see "enhanced partnerships" put into place between bus companies and local councils, with some areas given the power to introduce their own bus franchising schemes -- like they have in that London we're always going on about -- to open up competition while also maintaining overall control of the network.This would end the deregulated approach that's in place across much of England, where bus companies get contracts and can then do whatever they like with routes, timetables, tickets, seat fabric choices and whatnot from thereon.Regions with elected mayors will be able to introduce this all by themselves under devolution powers, with other areas needing to seek permission from the Transport Secretary first.Roads Minister Andrew Jones said: "Good bus services can help cut congestion and deliver better journeys for hard-working people, helping them get around and get on.We are determined to increase bus usage and these measures are designed to give councils access to a range of powers to help deliver regular, reliable services for all."

Will.i.am has a chequered history of making pieces of consumer technology that nobody really wants.There are some redeeming features.They use magnetic clips to snap together but then, so do plenty of cheap headphones .They re constructed using metal and woven fabric, so they ll probably feel quite nice in use.And Apple promises superior surround sound and deep bass, though you ll need to try them out to make sure for yourself.The headphones are exclusive to Apple.
Even after I checked out those reviews and posted about it, you readers were skeptical, saying things like:But then there was this.It s the most hooked into cultural stereotypes.You have to think about sweat, support, chafing, straps, slippage, and then looking cute.The first time I tried it, I put it on top of one of my most supportive bras.Exactly as advertised:Convinced I was imagining it, I slipped the band off while I was chugging up a hill, and the bouncing came back.It rides right under your armpits, so I would have expected stains or smells on those spots on the band, but the fabric either wicks the sweat away or hides it well.
