The assessment is on the quality of life: It is the 30-year build out of 4,500 residences into Bishop Ranch. This will create a permanent civic, educational and transportation travesty.

App code hints that Google might launch a Pixel 4a alongside the Pixel 4

Might we be seeing a Google Pixel 4a appear earlier than we thought? Right alongside the Pixel 4 at the same unveiling perhaps? That’s what a codename found in the upcoming Google Camera app suggests. 9to5Google did some digging and found a reference to a “needlefish” device, alongside the “coral” and “flame” codenames that we think are linked to the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL phones. This is mostly speculation at this point, but that “needlefish” name has popped up before alongside a reference to Qualcomm, suggesting that the device is some kind of Android gadget with a Snapdragon chip inside. Facebook plans another PortalGoogle Pixel 4 XL… Read More
