    Google Pixel 3 XL hands-on in Hong Kong — three days early

    We’re not sure there’s ever been a phone quite as leaky as the Pixel 3 XL. But Engadget’s Richard Lai went one better, spotting the new phone on sale (already!) in Hong Kong and giving it an early look-over.

The 6.3-inch screen has a resolution of 2,960 by 1,440 and the phone comes boxed with all the requisite chargers, dongles and cables.

    Voyager 2 probe may be on the edge of interstellar space

    NASA’s Voyager 2 probe may be close to joining its sibling and entering interstellar space. The vessel has been detecting a five percent increase in cosmic rays since late August, suggesting that it’s close to crossing the heliopause (the edge of the solar wind bubble, aka the heliosphere) and entering the interstellar realm. It’ll be just the second human-built object to have entered interstellar space. Future beyond-the-Solar-System missions may not take place for a very long time, so you’ll probably want to savor this moment while it lasts.

    But wait, there’s more…
