Speed round:
-Shooting a picture of the sun will literally melt your camera
-Xbox One X is available for preorder now, including a special "Scorpio design" edition
-Android 8.0 Oreo is out and apparently it's pretty good
-The Essential Phone is out too and apparently that's pretty good
-Machines taught by photos learn sexism
