Google’s Pixel Has a 2-Year Software Update Promise, and That’s Exactly Why It’s Not Going to Be My Next …
This isn’t the first time Google is delivering a stock-Android running smartphone whose price starts at $649.

Nintendo has had trouble with third-party software support on its consoles for decades, but it’s promising to change that (again) with the Switch.
Earlier this morning, the publisher revealed the new Nintendo Switch console in a three-minute trailer. The video detailed a console that can transform from a home device that you connect to your TV into an on-the-go handheld that is more advanced than a Vita. Switch runs on Nvidia’s mobile architecture, and that means developing for it is likely fairly similar to building software for an Android tablet.
