GoPro slides as Google announces its tiny Clips camera

So the camera captures attractive, spontaneous images. Plus capturing moments of your kids (or pets, we don't judge) is priceless. There is no audio recording here, though, so you shouldn't expect it to replace the need for a smartphone camera completely. This AI component also learns which people (which must mean faces) you know, and focuses on snapping pictures of them.

Mark Cuban is considering a run for president
Cuban admitted it would make sense to run if he could strategize effective solutions that people could get behind. Trump fired back in February, before the All-Star Game, saying on Twitter, "I know Mark Cuban well".

Google's pitch for Clips is that it respects privacy via looking like a camera and featuring indicator lights to make it clear when it's taking a photo. If you don't trust the software and want to guarantee that a particular picture is taken, Clips has a manual capture button, too.

Velocys PLC (VLS) Stock Rating Reaffirmed by Numis Securities Ltd
Inspiration Healthcare Group plc, formerly Inditherm plc, is a supplier of medical devices mainly in areas of critical care. Numis Securities Ltd's price target would indicate a potential downside of 12.88% from the company's previous close.

With machine learning, Google says that Clips will get better over time. Simply swipe to save or delete your clips, or choose an individual frame to save as a high-resolution still photo. It also doesn't use any kind of network connection, so it's not broadcasting the stuff it captures anywhere. This is a feature to comfort users that are anxious about security and privacy. Google is now giving free, unlimited storage for photos and clips in original quality. Clips was designed and engineered with these principles in mind.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Donald Trump a 'moron'
A person familiar with conversation also disputed that the vice president sought to coax the secretary of state into not quitting. The White House said as recently as Monday that Tillerson still has the president's full confidence. "He loves this country".

The Google Clips is set to be sold for $249 (about RM1000), with no release date announced. You can use one to quickly capture moments from your everyday life or record special events, hands-free. Given that the camera is geared toward parents and pet owners, having this kind of structural silo is hugely important. The Google Clips product manager, Juston Payne, described how the device inherently looks for "the good" moments to capture.
