Google has made the Pixel C Android tablet official at its product launch event today, marking the first time Google has made its own tablet instead of relying on a partner.
 
Just yesterday, information about the Pixel C was leaked and, as expected, the company has launched the device alongside its new Nexus smartphones today. The device is made from aluminum and shares some of the design elements of the company's Chromebook Pixel laptop line.
 
Under the hood, the Pixel C is powered by a Nvidia Tegra X1 quad-core CPU, Maxwell GPU and 3 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The tablet's 10.2-inch screen features a 2560x1800 resolution, which translates to a density of 308 pixels per inch. Additionally, the display features a 500 nits brightness rating, which would enable better viewing outdoors. Pixel C also features a USB Type-C connector similar to the Nexus devices.
 
The interesting addition to the Pixel C tablet is the support for a detachable keyboard accessory that draws inspiration from the Microsoft Surface line and the recently announced Apple iPad Pro. The only difference here is that the accessory simply attaches to the tablet magnetically instead of using a docking mechanism. Just as the Surface and the iPad Pro, the keyboard accessory will not come as a standard inclusion but will cost an additional $149.
 
Google has priced the new tablet at $499 for the 32GB model and $599 for the 64GB version without the tablet accessory. The company hasn't revealed the availability of the device yet but has assured that it will go on sale before the holiday season.

Microsoft BandWith recent details of the Microsoft Band 2 leaking this begs the question, are fitness trackers and other wearables just a fad or are they the future?

According to ABI Research by 2017, there will be 169.5 million wearable health and fitness devices on the market worldwide, up from 21 million in 2011 and this trend appears to be on the rise with many players competing for the is ever expanding niche market.

The number of players in this market is ever expading with players like Fitbit, Jawbone, Microsoft band and many others offering diverse experiences with their products which include full health statistics as seen by the Micorosft Health vault and many others.

Sure the fitness folks may be all in with these trackers but the general public is still skeptical with issues such as charging frequently still plaguing its wider adoption. Some of these issues are also seen by the smart watch market and still to be solved.

With technology rapidly evolving the fitness trackers provide great use in the health sector but not wider adoption else where. Some companies have gone on to suggest that the future lies with implantable devices sparking apocalyptic blog posts over the web. Even as chips get smaller, faster and more efficient, the trackers will be become smaller and cheaper too making them accessible to a wider audience but will face stiff competition from implantable technology which is being pushed by companies to provide solutions for biometric authentication and other medical uses.

The future may not incidentally lie in wearables but more with implantable devices as mainstream media and companies are starting to adopt early use cases like animal tracking, biometric authentication and others with legislation also strongly pushing for its adoption, the future may come sooner than we expect or think and maybe....just maybe the apocalyptic bloggers are onto something

acer revo buildBuilding your own computer is starting to come back in style thanks to initiatives like Phonebloks and Google's Project Ara, and now Acer is bringing that idea to the desktop. It's introducing a new PC today called the Revo Build Series, which starts as a small core block and can then be built upon by adding new bricks on top of it. Imagine having a vertical tower of Lego pieces, only with every piece you add, the tower gains a new ability.

Blocks include speakers, a projector, and a wireless charging dock

Acer calls these add-ons "blocks." It'll initially be offering blocks with a 500GB hard drive, a 1TB hard drive, a wireless charging dock, a speaker unit, a GPU, a projector, and a microphone. Additional blocks will be "rolled out gradually," but Acer doesn't say how often or what's coming next. It doesn't even say the price of these
