The Mozilla Foundation shares its research regarding mental health apps and their privacy policies and protections. Google announces new hardware at its Google I/O developer conference. Meta's Mark Zuckerberg shares a short demo of the company's next AR/VR headset.
First, Scott Hanselman of Microsoft stops by to share how he successfully published the archive of Microsoft 3D Movie Maker after a developer on Twitter "nerd-sniped" him. Self-proclaimed software necromancer, Foone, is now working to modernize the movie-making tool.
Then, Misha Rykov of the Mozilla Foundation shares the foundation's work on "*Privacy Not Included," a guide that details the privacy practices and protections of smart home hardware, apps, and services. The Foundation's latest focus? Mental health apps.
Then, Mikah recounts the exciting — and numerous — hardware announcements at Google I/O. The company revealed a new Pixel 6 smartphone, a Pixel Watch smartwatch, and true-wireless earbuds with active noise cancelation. Google also shared some details about the Pixel 7 & Pixel 7 Pro smartphones, a Pixel tablet, and augmented-reality glasses.
Lastly, Mikah discusses a new reveal from Meta's Mark Zuckerberg. The company is working on a mixed-reality headset, currently called Project Cambria, that will use high-quality cameras to stream a person's environment and overlay augmented reality experiences.
