Are you planning to watch Google I/O this week?

After months of rumors and speculation surrounding Google’s hardware plans for 2023, it’s finally time for a grand debut. Google I/O is set for this Wednesday, where we’ll get an in-depth look at Android 14, plenty of talk about AI, and of course, all sorts of new hardware to get excited about. It’s also a truncated event, taking place over just one day rather than spread throughout a week. That should make it easier to watch, so we want to know if you’ll be tuning in.


Let’s focus on hardware. We already know the Pixel Fold will be there thanks to this week’s tease on social media. That said, there’s plenty to learn about Google’s first foldable, including pricing and a release date. It remains to be seen whether Google will manage to undercut its competition, or if we’ll be looking at another foldable that costs nearly $2,000. Either way, you’ll want to keep your wallet next to you during the keynote.

We’re also expecting to see the Pixel 7a, potentially with a day-and-date release that allows shoppers to buy one right after I/O wraps up. Google’s last midrange device has remained an unbeatable deal, so to say we’re excited would be an understatement. There’s also the Pixel Tablet, which seems due for a follow-up announcement following last year’s unveiling. And who knows — if history is any indication, we could even see an early tease for the Pixel 8 before its own arrival later this fall.

It’s not just about hardware though. Expect plenty of details surrounding Android 14, along with the expected launch of its second beta that, with any luck, will be a lot less buggy than its first. Google’s also certainly going to focus on the

Best meal planning apps in 2023, tested by our editors

We all know we should make healthy food choices, but it can often be challenging to manage all the details involved in maintaining a balanced, nutritious diet every week. Meal planning apps can be the missing link, providing a cost-effective and efficient way to customize an appealing weekly menu.

“Meal planning apps help [people] save time and money and provide variety in the diet,” explains Jaime Coffey Martinez, a registered dietitian and owner and founder of Nutrition CPR, a health and wellness center. Martinez has more than 20 years of experience in the fields of medical nutrition therapy, weight loss, functional medicine, sports nutrition, corporate wellness and fitness, private nutrition coaching and pharmaceuticals. Martinez says meal planning apps “can help [people] track their progress and promote healthier eating habits, with an ability to customize and tailor needs to reach specific goals.”

To help you choose the best meal planning app for you, we tested five apps: Eat This Much Premium, BigOven Pro, Mealime Pro, Meal Prep Pro by Nibble Apps and Paprika Recipe Manager 3 by Hindsight Labs.
