Google has made yet another big-ticket purchase by buying the fitness giant Fitbit. Google has just announced that it has bought Fitbit for $2.1 billion. It seems like the company wants to gain traction in the fitness segment as it did with the Pixel in the premium smartphone segment. Just yesterday a report by Reuters had claimed that Google was in talks to buy the fitness tracker company.

Google has pulled the wraps from Pixel 4 and 4 XL at an event held in New York. The latest Pixel phones come equipped with a radar sensor that is used for Motion Sense feature.

Thanks to numerous leaks and exclusive APK files we know what Pixel 4 might have to offer. As always some people who managed to get hold of the demo units posted pictures and videos on social media. However, some of them want to make a quick buck and have listed the Pixel 4 demo unit on Shopee, a Malaysian auction site.
