Google is working on an AirTag competitor

Codenamed “grogu”

Published

on

Since its launch, the AirTag has created a whirlwind of controversy because of how the tracking device was used (or misused). Today, the general consensus is that the AirTag offers more benefits than potential drawbacks. Everyone now wants in. Google, according to a recent finding, is reportedly working on its own AirTag competitor.

Via Kuba Wojciechowski and Mishaal Rahman on Twitter, Google is developing quite a bit in the tracking device segment. The developers are currently expanding the lineup of Fast Pair to include support for more locator tags like the AirTag. However, besides support for other devices, the development also includes references to a first-party tracking device.

The device, “grogu” as it’s currently called, is under development by the Nest team. It will include on-board speakers and Bluetooth LE support.

Google has not hinted at any developments to confirm any upcoming tracking device. With the currently available information, it’s impossible to check what the final product will be called or what features it will come with.

A Google-based tracking device will still be a godsend for users, though. Currently, only Tile offers an alternative to the Apple-based AirTag. Besides allowing users to keep track of their misplaced devices, a tracking device is now an essential must-have for travelers to make sure airlines don’t accidentally misplace pieces of luggage.

Sony brings back the Walkman

There are two new models

Published

Sony Walkman NW-ZX707

What is a Sony Walkman? For those who don’t know, ‘Walkman’ is essentially Sony’s branding for their line of portable music players. It had versions that played cassette tapes, CDs, and mp3 files. Now, in the era of streaming, the Walkman is making a comeback.

Two new models

Sony Walkman NW-ZX707

Sony is adding two models to the lineup. These are the NW-ZX707, and the NW-A306. Yes, Sony’s robotic nomenclature is alive in well even in the Walkman line.

The NW-ZX707 has a 5-inch display, enhanced battery life, balanced connection, and Wi-Fi compatibility for downloading and streaming. Updated components from high-ends models were used on the device. This is to make sure it delivers high sound quality.

It integrates a DSD Remastering Engine where PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) audio is resampled into an 11.2 MHz DSD (Direct Stream Digital).

Then, there’s the NW-A306. It’s a much more compact modern Walkman. It has a 3.6-inch touch screen as well tactile physical music controls for those who like to feel them buttons.

This new walkman is made with premium aluminium milled frame and weighs only 7oz.

High quality sound

Sony Walkman NW-A306

Naturally, high quality sound is the name of the game for this pair of devices. Walkman’s independently developed S-Master HX digital amp technology was used to make it compatible with native DSD format.

What it does is reduce distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies. This results in a rich and full-bodied sound, further enhanced by a new high-quality sound lead-free solder.

The NW-ZX707 and the NW-A306 both use Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), and DSEE Ultimate™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) which upscales compressed digital music files in real-time. The evolving algorithm now delivers even greater benefits for CD-quality (16-bit 44.1/48kHz) lossless codec audio.
This restores subtleties and dynamic range providing a richer and more complete listening experience.

Battery life

The NW-ZX707 has a battery life of up to 25 hours of 44.1kHz FLAC playback, up to 23 hours1 of 96 kHz FLAC High-Resolution Audio playback, or up to 22 hours2 even when streaming.

The NW-A306 has a battery life of up to 36 hours1 of 44.1kHz FLAC playback, up to 32 hours1 of 96kHz FLAC high-resolution audio playback, or even up to 26 hours with streaming service apps.

Price and availability

The NW-ZX707 retails for PhP 44,999 while the NW-A306 is priced at PhP 19,999. They will be available in select Sony Authorized Dealers nationwide starting February 10, 2023.
