Two new HTC-built phones from Google have just been officially unveiled. The difference between Google’s Pixel & Pixel XL mainly comes down to the size & resolution of their screens. The Pixel gets a 5-inch 1080p display & the XL gives you a 5.5-inch Quad HD panel display. Both run Google’s Android software on a Snapdragon 821 processor and have Google Assistant built-in as well as supporting Google Daydream VR.

It’s inevitable. Sooner or later you’ll find yourself in a warm, gently lit studio attempting to touch your toes while breathing deeply.

And it’s not just primal, it’s functional: the grain gives you grip. And when you’re twisted up in wheel pose, you’ll need it.
The sleek & minimalist Desk 02 from St.Louis-based Artifox design studio is every bit as functional as it is good looking.
