Google throws shade at the iPhone 13 using its old Nexus account

Long-live Nexus.

What you need to know

  • The Google Nexus Twitter account has sent its first tweet in four years.
  • Google continues teasing the upcoming Pixel 6 amid the new iPhone 13 launch.
  • OnePlus and Samsung have also joined in, poking fun at Apple's new smartphone.

Apple unveiled its new iPhone 13 on Tuesday, and of course, Android manufacturers are taking a moment to poke fun, most notably Google, who is preparing for the launch of its own flagship Pixel 6.

However, the company did not go through normal channels to tease Apple about its newest flagship. Instead, the company appears to have resurrected its old Google Nexus Twitter account with a simple tweet.

The tweet is notable in that Google has not been active on the Nexus Twitter account in roughly four years, moving its hardware-related tweets to the @MadeByGoogle account. And since the account is private, only those that follow it are able to see it.

Google has also updated the Pixel 6 splash page with a new image of its upcoming flagship. It shows the silver Pixel 6 Pro, giving us our best look at the device display.

That said, Google wasn't the only company poking fun at Apple. Manufacturers of some of the best Android phones also had their moment. OnePlus joined in by highlighting one of the most common phrases spoken whenever a new iPhone launches:

Of course, we can all go on about what features the iPhone stole from Android, but unfortunately, we don't have all day.

Samsung also chimed in, poking fun at the relatively unchanged design of the new iPhone 13 while highlighting its latest foldables like the Galaxy Z Fold 3:

While Apple is rumored to be working on a foldable device, experts say we shouldn't expect it until at least 2023 while Samsung will continue to dominate that market.

The new iPhone 13 models feature the new A15 Bionic chip, brighter displays with 20% smaller notches and dynamic 120Hz refresh rates, improved cameras for better low-light and video recording, longer-lasting batteries, and larger storage tiers.

What are your thoughts on the new iPhone 13 or any of the other devices that Apple announced today?

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
