Intel has a mysterious black Surface Book in its latest video

Intel unveiled its 8th generation Core processors earlier today, which will launch on laptops first. As part of the launch, Intel has produced a promotional video of what to expect from the next processors, which will bring quad-core chips more broadly to laptops. MSPoweruser has spotted that the video includes what appears to be a black Surface Book.

Microsoft currently manufactures a gray Surface Book, and the company hasn’t used black on its Surface line since the Surface Pro 2 nearly four years ago. The mysterious device in Intel’s video could be a marketing render, but it does include the exact same eject key found on the keyboard of the Surface Book and the unique fulcrum hinge that Microsoft uses on its laptop.

Google’s Inbox can finally show multiple email accounts at once

Google Inbox has a new “all inboxes” view on Android, allowing you to see all of your inboxes without tapping back and forth.

So far, there isn’t a way to filter or sort through the All Inboxes tab, but maybe disorganized…

Google is reportedly planning to unveil a miniaturized version of its Home smart speaker at a hardware event dedicated to the upcoming Pixel sequel, according to a report from Android Police.

The mini Home speaker would likely be positioned as an Amazon Echo Dot competitor. That would allow you to hook up traditional audio systems with voice control, string together multiple Home units, and access Google Assistant throughout your house without spending an additional $129 on a standalone Home speaker.

Also rumored to be at the event is a new Pixel-branded Chromebook, the…

Here’s what the 2017 solar eclipse looked like from space

The 2017 solar eclipse has come and gone! Now, it’s time to stare in awe at all the amazing images captured by NASA, the European Space Agency, their satellites, and the luckiest folks off Earth: the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

Yes, while you were pinching and zooming on your phone trying to nail the perfect Instagram moment, space agencies around the world were gathering the kinds of eclipse images that we could never dream of capturing ourselves.

To wit, there are already plenty of great images of shadow that the Moon cast across the country. Let’s start with a few GIFs and videos of that, made from images captured by GOES-16, a satellite that launched into orbit last November:
