Google is expected to release today their latest Pixel devices - including the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Early leaks show features will include an AI enabled camera and wireless charging. Also expected to be released is Google's latest tablet - the Pixel Slate, says Cheddar.
Target has a new plan to help you save. The retailer says it will launch a line of household goods under the brand "Smartly." And most items will cost under $2. It will include things like hand soap, paper towels and cleaning supplies. It's a move to take on bargain stores like General Dollar - that continue opening throughout the country.
Netflix is setting up shop in New Mexico. The streaming giant says it has acquired ABQ Studios in Albuquerque and plans on spending $1 billion on production in the next decade. States like New Mexico and Georgia have become attractive to studios because there's more space and fewer crowds, in addition to some pretty serious tax breaks.
