The Magic Editor feature on the Pixel 8 exemplifies perfectly the kind of tech that we create not because it’s particularly desired or useful, but because we can and it’s cool. There is no interest here in capturing and celebrating the beauty of the human experience as it really is. Forgotten also is the social responsibility of creating a record of our reality for future generations. No. We can and it’s cool so let’s do it is the extent of the thinking being presented. It’s a sad lack of values.
