Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.
We're finally ready to put a bow on SXSW 2018, while the SEC announced charges for the Theranos scandal and Drake logged on to play a little Fortnite with Ninja.
Logitech G's latest PC speakers aren't just focused on sounding good -- they can also create a light show around your desk with four RGB LED lighting zones, which can display around 16.8 million colors. Together with Logitech's Gaming Software, the LIGHTSYNC technology will match the colors of what you're seeing on screen, even if you're looking at a movie.
Theranos, as well as CEO Holmes and former president Balwani are said to have raised more than $700 million from investors through "an elaborate, years-long fraud." This involved making "false statements about the company's technology, business and financial performance." Holmes will have to pay a $500,000 fine and return 18.9 million shares in Theranos that she owned, among other penalties.
While you were asleep Tyler "Ninja" Blevins teamed up with Drake, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Travis Scott for some Fortnite, and, shockingly, people wanted to watch. At one point, over 600,000 people were watching live, well above the old concurrent record for an individual streamer that had been set at 388,000 just a month ago.
Today, the Hello and the previously announced Nest x Yale Lock are officially available for $229 and $249 respectively. Oh, and there's the new Nest Temperature Sensor, which helps control the temperature in more rooms around the house. The products are a bit pricey, but our hands-on time showed how well the ecosystem can work with them all put together.
Yup, you heard that right.
While in Austin, we checked out the Bose AR glasses that overlay audio on the real world, the build-a-vibrator workshop hosted by Crave, a rousing speech by London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Ready Player One's suite of VR games, HBO's Westworld in real life, Samsung's adorable AI assistants, and much, much more. And that's not even mentioning all the barbecue.
But wait, there's more...
