Upcoming Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will run Google's own AI-focused Tensor chip
Google's Pixel 5 smartphone was surprisingly unambitious, an affordable mid-ranger rather than a high-end flagship, prompting some to ask if the company was quietly planning to step back from manufacturing its own Android handsets. But no; after months of rumors, the company has decided to give a pre-launch "sneak peek" at an upcoming Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, complete with a brand new "Tensor" system-on-a-chip designed in-house to vastly accelerate AI and machine learning capabilities.

Google's Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will use AI everywhere
Smartphone launch season is typically in the fall, but Google has unexpectedly early news to share today. The company just announced that not only is the Pixel 6 coming this fall, but it'll feature the very first system-on-chip designed by Google. The chip is called Tensor and it leverages the company's AI expertise to enable more powerful and better integrated machine learning on devices. At a demo event to show off Tensor's prowess, I was able to check out the Pixel 6 with the company's chief of hardware Rick Osterloh. I wasn't allowed to take pictures or video, and Google hasn't shared all of the phones' specs, but I can tell you about a few new features.

First, there will be two lines: Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Google hasn't shared the actual dimensions yet, but the Pro, which is larger, felt similar in size to a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. They both look like the leaked renders we've seen, except shinier and three-dimensional. There's a band about an inch tall on the rear in black, lime green or peachy red, and below that sits a horizontal camera bump that stretches across the case. According to Google's blog post, the sensors and lenses were improved and "are now too big to fit into the traditional square."

Yes, when you place the Pixel 6 on a table there's still a slope because of the bar, but since it's not off to a corner like on prior Pixels (or Galaxy phones or iPhones), the phone won't wobble from side to side. The rest of the back is black, pastel green or pastel peach correspondingly.

For the Pro line, the colors are more subtle with less contrast between the sections, but they have what Osterloh called "high gloss metal accents" along the edges. The camera bump also gets this shiny treatment on the P

For Windows security, what we have is a failure to communicate
Microsoft last week reported $60 billion in profit and $165 billion in sales for its most recent quarter — with a staggering increase in cloud revenues. But that good news comes in a year when not a day goes by without reports of another security issue, another ransomware attack. Yes, Windows 11 will require hardware that should bring with it better security, but it comes at a price. Most users have systems that won't support Windows 11, so we'll be stuck using Windows 10.

There seems to be a big disconnect between the reality (and financial success) of the Windows ecosystem and the reality for its users. We need more security now, not later.

[ Related: What enterprise needs to know about Windows 11 ] For many people, malware often infiltrates systems via phishing lures and enticing links. Microsoft could serve users better by recommending security solutions we have on our systems now that aren't enabled. Some of these settings don't require additional licensing, while others are gated behind the holy grail of Windows licensing — the Microsoft 365 E5 license. While a user can purchase a single E5 license to get the included security enhancements, it raises a concern that Microsoft is starting to make security an add-on to the OS rather than built in. I remember when Microsoft talked up "Secure by Design," "Secure by Default," and "Secure in Deployment and Communication" (also known as SD3 C). Now, instead, it is touting security solutions
