    Incognito Mode on Google Chrome lets you browse the web without maintaining a history or saving information like cookies and form inputs. Now, Google might be planning to rename the feature to 'Private Mode' Users have started noticing that the 'Open in incognito tab' option has been changed to 'Open in private tab,' which could signal that Google is about to change it for everyone. It looks like the change might be server side as the option didn't seem to have changed for us as they still read 'incognito' for me. However, things might remain as they are like before since these kinds of tests are nothing new to Google.  The Chrome Help page already has 'private' references quite heavily, so that could be a sign of things to come. This change comes after recent change to Keep which got re-branded to 'Keep Notes.' Source

    Apple introduced AirPower which is its multi-device wireless charger last year, but the product never went on for sale despite rumored September launch. However, a user guide included with the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max has references about the AirPower, suggesting that Apple has not yet shelved the much-anticipated charging mat.  But they definitely mention it in the new iPhone XS Max manual pic.twitter.com/qJO7kVc8bi — Gavin Stephens (@ccgavind) September 20, 2018 The user guide included with the iPhone XS and XS Max clearly shows a passage mentioning the AirPower. It reads: "Place iPhone with the screen facing up on AirPower or a Qi-certified wireless charger. You can also use the Lightning connector to charge iPhone and connect accessories." It is unclear why Apple mentioned AirPower in the manual, it perhaps suggests that the company might have had plans to ship the charging accessory alongside the new iPhones. Apple didn't mention anything at its 'Gather Around' event though rumors suggested that it might. It's been more than a year since the device was first announced. Apple wants to give users the ability to place any of their devices anywhere on the charging mat to begin a charge and the ability to charge the iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods ...

It is also rumored that Google might be launching an accessory called 'Pixel Stand' which is a charging accessory for Pixel 3.  The tear down of the latest version of the Google app reveals a possible first look at the Pixel Stand. A brief animation within the app is currently hidden shows off a phone on a dock going through a slideshow of pictures. While it doesn't exactly show all the details about the product, it does give brief details.   The dock will likely work when the phone is in portrait orientation; lining up with the earlier leaks. The animation further reveals that it will also include some sort of slideshow function; similar to Google Photos “Photo Frame” functionality on smart displays. Another animation in another version of the Google app teases a notification functionality. It shows messages, alarms, calendar notifications, and music. However, the exact functionality is still a mystery. Google is all set to unveil its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones on October 9th. Source

    Google might be testing new Color Pop, along with manual bokeh effects.  as some users are reporting to have gotten the new editing tools The Color Pop keeps the focus of the photo in color and desaturates the rest of the shot. The manual bokeh lets you do something similar by blurring the background instead of desaturated. It also lets you tap to change the focus and adjust the strength of the blur effect. Google is probably testing these features together because the underlying processing is similar. Photos will have to know the difference between the subject and background. This feature will only work with regular photos, not those taken with depth effects enabled. Since it is in the early stages of testing, the feature is currently buggy; the Color Pop seems particularly rough. This means that there might a lot of work that needs to be done before these features roll out widely to everyone. Source | Via
