2018 Toyota Camry Review

2018 Toyota Camry Review is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.
The 2018 Toyota Camry XSE is an amazing-looking sedan with a spacious, beautiful interior and options that add our favorite driver convenience features. With stylish body lines and an optional two color interior the new Camry turned heads and caught the attention of a surprising amount of people. To go along with the bolder look, the SE and XSE come with a sportier suspension and the XSE can be equipped with a 3.5L engine.
This is not your father’s Camry.
If you are simply looking for a stylish new sedan that starts at an affordable price with packages that add must-have car features, the Camry needs to be at the top of your list. The only thing missing from the 2018 Toyota Camry is support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Toyota is adding support to some models, but it is not a feature on the 2018 Camry.

What’s New
The Toyota Camry is completely redesigned for 2018. The new Camry features a longer wheelbase, dramatically upgraded exterior styling and a new rear suspension. You’ll also find distinct styling differences depending on the trim level you pick.
2018 Toyota Camry Trim Levels & Features
The 2018 Toyota Camry is available in five trim levels and there are two engine options. The five trims are L, LE, SE, XSE and XLE. The main differences are in the features available and packages you can add, but if you pick the XS or XSE, you also get an upgraded suspension that is sportier. All trims are available with a 2.5L four cylinder engine and you can opt for the 3.5L V6 on the XSE and XLE trims.
2018 Toyota Camry Tested
This is the all new Toyota Camry XSE.
While the 2018 Camry shares many aspects across the trim levels it is important to note the subtle differences. I spent a week testing the 2018 Toyota Camry XSE with the 3.5L V6, Driver Assist Package and Navigation Package. The 2018 Camry XSE with the 3.6L starts at $34,950 and, as tested with a special paint color, two tone body color and metallic roof and accents plus delivery, it came to $39,253.
2018 Toyota Camry Tech
The 2018 Toyota Camry technology and infotainment isn’t up to par with the competition because it lacks Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. This means you cannot put your apps, music and messages on the screen for easier use while driving. Toyota is finally adding support for other cars, but the 2018 Camry isn’t on the list. This means you will need to use the Entune 3.0 system that is standard on the Camry.
The Entune system isn’t bad, but it lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
With Entune you can connect your phone with a USB cable or by Bluetooth to stream music or make calls, but you still need to interact with the phone to pick music and use Navigation. Toyota opts for the Scout GPS Link app to add navigation to the Camry, which removes the need to pay for map updates, but it’s still not as useful as Google Maps or Apple Maps integrated as part of CarPlay or Android Auto.  The Premium Audio option is good, but lacks enough punch to be great.
Inside you’ll find a decent number of USB ports to charge devices as well as an optional Qi wireless charging dock that allows you to charge newer smartphones without a cord.
I love the heads up display on the Camry. it’s one of the easiest to see and it is even visible with polarized sunglasses on. The Camry includes available WiFi powered by Verizon, which allows you to connect up to five devices to your car for Internet access. It also allows Remote Connect, which lets you use your phone to locate your Camry and remote start it.
2018 Toyota Camry Safety
The new Camry includes a lot of standard and optional safety features.
The 2018 Camry comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense, which includes many of the new car features I recommend looking for in your next car. These include:

Pre-collision system with Pedestrian Detection
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
Automatic High Beams
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

This is in addition to the available Birds Eye View cameras, parking sensors with rear cross-traffic braking and optional blind spot monitoring. I found the radar cruise control to be very useful while testing the Camry and appreciate the abundance of standard safety features as well as the availability of the optional features on most models. The entry Level 2018 Camry L misses out on many options, but the LE can be equipped with most of these features.
2018 Toyota Camry Driving
The 2018 Camry XSE is fun to drive thanks to a 3.5L V6 and a sportier suspension.
The 2018 Toyota Camry XSE is fun to drive. With the 3.5L V6 and sportier suspension it’s got enough pep for daily driving and it’s fun on the open road. It’s not as fun as jumping into a Honda Civic Type R, but it is a nice car to drive.
An eight speed transmission shifts smoothly, delivering power when you need it. You can also use paddle shifters to shift on demand. There are three driving modes: eco, normal and sport. In sport mode the shift points change slightly. Even when you are already at speed, there is enough power left to give you a satisfying pull when you press the gas to the floor.
Ultimately the 2018 Camry checks all the boxes for a daily driver that is comfortable to drive, easy to keep in your lane and still offers a little fun on a windy road.
2018 Toyota Camry Design & Interior

The first thing I noticed when I stepped outside to look at the new Camry is how nice it looks. The 2018 Camry XSE with a Midnight Black Metallic Roof and Wind Chill White body paint is an epic combo and the body lines accentuate the sporty look of the car. On the rear of the XSE a dual exhaust is split into a quad tip system that looks great. From the front to the back, the Camry XSE looks fantastic.
I found the Camry comfortable for long drives thanks to a very configurable driver seat. The back seat is slightly smaller than the previous model, but still comfortable. If you regularly drive taller passengers around, you may want to look at the Mazda6, which has a little more headroom. The Camry seats 5, with one passenger in the middle of the back seat with limited legroom.
The 2018 Camry XSE I tested came with a red leather interior that looks very nice. The interior quality is very nice with soft touch materials throughout the cabin and a nice build quality. There is a lot of cargo space in Camry Trunk, though it is a little smaller than previous models.

You Need These 10 Must Have Car Features: Find Out Why
Smart Cruise Control

Do you hate constantly adjusting your cruise control, or giving up on cruise control because of traffic or due to a driver in front of you who keeps changing speed? You need a smart cruise control system.
Smart cruise control goes by many different names. You may see it listed as Radar Cruise, Adaptive Cruise or Intelligent Cruise control. Whatever it is called, it will allow you to set your cruise control and then stay with the flow of slower traffic.
Here’s why we love it and why you need it. You get on the highway and set the cruise at 76 miles per hour. You also set the distance you want kept between you and the car in front of you. There are typically three or four settings so you can be close or keep a lot of space. Now you simply steer and your car will go 76 mile per hour when traffic allows it or there is no one in front of you. When someone is in front of you going 73 mph, the car automatically slows down to keep you the distance you choose from that car. This is indispensable in traffic and on long road trips. 

Not all smart cruise control systems are the same. Some of work at all speeds, while others only work above a specific limit. Some systems can bring you to a complete stop in traffic and then restart without you needing to touch a pedal. 
You can find adaptive cruise control on cars as cheap as $18,500 like the Toyota Corolla, and as an option on many cars below $30,000. Even on pricier cars you may need a higher trim level or special package to get this feature.

Casio Digital Compact Cameras Are No More…

According to a report on the Nikkei website, Casio are withdrawing from the digital compact camera market after posting a loss of 500 million Yen in the financial year to March 2017.
We last reviewed a Casio camera way back in 2011 (the EX-ZR100, pictured), as the company quietly withdrew their products from the UK and other countries, but they continued to sell digital cameras in Japan.
Now Casio have realised “that future market expansion can not be expected” even in their home country, announcing plans to focus on high value added camera products instead – anyone interested in a Casio mirrorless camera?

Google has spoken: say goodbye to Nougat on new devices

Fact: the Android update situation is disastrous. Launching a new device with an outdated version of the operating service is bad practice. Google has finally said enough is enough, and no more devices intending to launch with Android Nougat will be certified. 

I knew that about every 10 seconds someone falls victim to a ransomware attack.
You too?

No more new smartphones with Nougat
Google is moving forward. The company has decided to start fighting the fragmentation of its smartphone operating system with some weapons that should be effective in the long run.
As you probably already know, to officially use Android on a device with Google Mobile Services (GMS) support, manufacturers must follow the rules (CDD – Compatibility Definition Document) to ensure the compatibility of their software with all Android APIs, and to guarantee an experience for users and developers consistent with the entire ecosystem. To be certified, devices and their software are tested through the Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) which verifies the application of these rules.

Nougat, you’re fired / © AndroidPIT

By the end of March Google will have finally stop the certification of new devices with Nougat on board. New smartphones released from now on will have to use Android Oreo as their operating system if they want to pass the test, receive the certification and then be able to use Google apps.
Project Treble for all
This leads to another good thing: all the devices presented with Oreo on board must also support Project Treble, the new modular update system from Google. Project Treble is the company’s weapon for trying to reduce fragmentation, which won’t be immediate of course, but in the near future. 
The effects of Project Treble should already be noticeable once Android P is released, helping manufacturers to release faster updates for smartphones.

Android P could arrive faster thanks to Project Treble. / © AndroidPIT

The bad news is that the block of certifications arrived very late, 7 months after the official release of Oreo and the  first preview for Android P developers. For example, last year Google blocked the certification of smartphones with Android Marshmallow in favor of Nougat in January 2017, 5 months after the official release of Android 7.0.
Google is fighting fragmentation one bit at a time
Google has more tricks up its sleeve. In addition to Oreo and Project Treble, Google also has Android One and Android Go that should help to spread the latest versions of Android and fast, even on mid-range or low-end device. The Android Enterprise Recommended program should also encourage manufacturers to update smartphones quickly, and over a longer period of time.
It only took 11 years and countless versions of the operating system to force Google to tighten the rules regarding software and updates. I am well aware that the only weapon Google had available to push its operating system on giants Apple, BlackBerry and Nokia (Symbian) was to leave it available to as many manufacturers as possible without too many restrictions, after years and the widespread use of Android, Google should have been strict with manufacturers.

Is it really so difficult to use more resources to keep devices up to date?  / © AndroidPIT

Google needed as many partners as possible to push its new platform, but now it has the upper hand. Google no longer needs to please manufacturers to convince them to use Android, it will be the phone manufacturers that will need to play by the rules. After all, it is the most popular mobile operating system in the world.

Opinion by Luca Zaninello

Google should centralize updating versions of Android, as Apple does with iOS
What do you think?

Will we ever see Google lose the top spot because of its actions? It’s hard to say, but the path we’ve taken is the right one, even if it is too late to fix a problem that affects more than 90% of the millions of Android devices out there.
How do you think Google should deal with the fragmentation problem?

Facebook’s Internet.org has connected almost 100M to the ‘internet’ – TechCrunch

Facebook is getting the developing world online, even as the developed world criticizes its privacy practices. Mark Zuckerberg said today on Facebook’s Q1 2018 earnings call that “our Internet.org efforts have helped almost 100 million people get access to the internet who may not have had it otherwise.” That’s up from 40 million in November 2016.
Internet.org uses its Free Basics app with access to low-bandwidth services and Express Wi-Fi hotspots operated by local merchants to give people connectivity. Facebook is also testing its Aquila solar-powered drone, which will be able to beam bandwidth down to users in remote areas.
Most recently, Facebook is reported to be seeking government approval to test Aquila for delivering LTE access in New Mexico. Facebook has also experimented with using lasers and satellites to get bandwidth into places without decent mobile networks.
However, Facebook has received backlash from some who believe that Free Basics violates net neutrality because it doesn’t give completely unfettered access to the open web. That led the app to be banned in India. Yet others believe that some internet is better than none for those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg also described a payments experiment within Messenger as a way to drive connectivity. He said that in the Philippines, Facebook has worked with mobile financial services firms and carriers to let people buy data plans through Messenger. Zuckerberg explained that since these carriers have to invest less in retail locations to sell the data, it can actually charge around 10 percent less for the same data plan, thereby letting more people afford data.
In the long run though, Facebook not only needs to build out the technology, but also the trust of the community if it wants to achieve its mission to get everyone online.

Justin Reid could be an even better NFL safety than his brother Eric Reid

Justin has learned a lot from his brother Eric, a Pro Bowl safety who is currently a free agent.
When you’re a younger sibling, sometimes it can feel like you’re walking in the shadow of the older sibling. Well, what if your older brother was a five-year NFL veteran, and you were an NFL hopeful at his same position? Justin Reid is a former Stanford safety and current NFL Draft prospect. His older brother is Pro Bowler Eric Reid, former free safety for the San Francisco 49ers who’s now a free agent.
Justin is the youngest of Eric and Ryan, the middle Reid brother.
The three grew up in a pretty rivalry-friendly household. In an interview with NBC Sports, Eric said Justin being treated differently as the youngest child egged him and his brother Ryan on:

“He was the baby, so my parents always treated him like a baby. Me and Ryan hated that, so we would always go that much harder on him,” the now 25-year-old Eric told NBC Sports Bay Area from the 49ers locker room after a recent practice. “Whether it was video games, sports or whatever. We just always made sure we beat him into the ground.”
Justin may have been smaller than his older siblings, but he was every bit as competitive. And he had a plan for payback.
“Whenever we weren’t around, he would just practice, practice, practice until he got better than us,” Eric said.
At age 12, Justin landed his first knockout in “Dragon Ball Z,” one of the brothers’ favorite video games.
“One day, I could never beat him any more at video games,” Eric said through a smile. “I was like, ‘OK. I guess I’m not playing that any more.’”

Justin said that he’s learned a lot from Eric, who has admitted that his younger brother is now faster than he is. It’s only fitting that Justin pursue an NFL career at safety like Eric. But they’re not the same in every respect.
Justin’s brother Eric’s free agency has been an intriguing one.
That’s partially due to his kneeling during the national anthem the last two seasons in San Francisco in protest of the oppression and injustices faced by people of color in the United States. He was one of the first players to join Colin Kaepernick, who started the movement during the 2016 preseason.
Reid has been one of the more outspoken NFL players since the movement started, and wrote a powerful op-ed in the New York Times detailing why he and Kaepernick have protested.
He’s still looking for a team after becoming a free agent this offseason, and during a visit with the Cincinnati Bengals, wasn’t willing to commit to not kneeling anymore:

During his visit, ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio reports that kneeling during the national anthem became a topic of discussion with owner Mike Brown:
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Brown personally met with Reid when Reid visited the Bengals on Monday. Brown, according to the source, initiated discussion regarding the issue of kneeling during the anthem. The conversation almost exclusively centered on the topic, with Brown explaining that he intends to prohibit it — and with Brown at one point asking Reid for his response.
Reid, caught off guard by the line of questioning, wasn’t willing to make a commitment on the spot. Last month, Reid said he’s currently not planning to kneel or otherwise demonstrate during the anthem. But Reid, who is considering other options for bringing attention to societal issues he considers to be important, hasn’t made any final decisions, and he wasn’t willing to do so at the direct request and behest of Brown.

But just a couple days ahead of the draft, San Francisco 49ers GM John Lynch said there’s a possibility that Reid could return to the team.
Reid’s activism will likely continue, but his NFL future could be up in the air, as we’ve seen with Kaepernick. At the very least, he’s taken a visit with a team this offseason, while Kaepernick recently had one cancelled with the Seahawks after he also declined to commit to stop kneeling during the national anthem.
In March, Justin told The Guardian that the teams he met with have not asked him about his brother’s protests.
“We each have our own beliefs,” Justin said via the newspaper. “He felt like that’s what he needed to do. I have my own ways that I feel like I’m going to go about it. I’m not as much of a vocal person in that situation. I don’t really like drama. I don’t want to deal with that.”
At Stanford, Justin began playing for the Cardinal as a true freshman in 2015.
He played in all but two games in his three seasons at Stanford. His best season was in 2017, when he was named a second-team All-American and put up 99 total tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, and five interceptions. Here’s his scouting report via New York Giants blog Big Blue View:

In another draft Reid might be in the conversation as the top safety in his class. However, the presence of Minkah Fitzpatrick and Derwin James will push him down boards some.
But while he doesn’t quite have their versatility and utility, Reid is a good free safety prospect in his own right. He has the versatility to come down and cover slot receivers as well as play as a true free safety in a single-high look, which should give freedom to his future defensive coordinator.
While Reid is not a perfect analog to Tyrann Mathieu, that versatility and the playmaking ability he showed this past year are traits that James Bettcher maximized in the Cardinals’ defense. Reid would make an intriguing addition to the Giants’ secondary along with Landon Collins, and bring a skill-set that Darian Thompson and Andrew Adams don’t share.

Dan Kadar has Reid as the No. 64 overall prospect in this year’s class, so don’t count him going relatively early out.
At the NFL Combine in February, he had impressive numbers, tying for second among safeties with his 4.4 40-yard dash, and he was third in the 20-yard shuttle, as well as the three-cone drill. Depending on where he gets drafted depends partially on where teams want him — he’s listed as a free safety but played cornerback at Stanford, too.
Playing safety in the NFL is in Justin’s genes, so he could have a chance to have a career like his older brother’s — or maybe even a better one.

Liverpool fan left in critical condition named as Sean Cox | UK news

A Liverpool fan left fighting for his life after allegedly being attacked by Roma fans before a Champions League semi-final football match has been named as father-of-three Sean Cox.
Cox, a businessman from Dunboyne in County Meath, Ireland, suffered serious head injuries after being assaulted outside the Albert pub, next to the Kop end of Liverpool’s Anfield stadium, on Tuesday evening.
Merseyside police said that two men from Rome, aged 25 and 26, had been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Witnesses reported that the victim fell to the ground after being hit with a belt.
Cox’s family members have flown to Liverpool to be with him at Walton Neurological Centre, where he remains in a critical condition. Friend Damien O’Reilly, a local councillor, said Cox was heavily involved in the local community. “Everyone is just in shock and we are praying for a speedy recovery,” he said.
It is understood Cox had travelled to Liverpool with his brother to watch the game. A GoFundMe page, set up to raise money for any medical bills, had raised nearly €3,000 (£2,620) by Wednesday afternoon.
Roma said in a statement it condemned in the strongest possible terms “the abhorrent behaviour of a small minority of travelling fans who brought shame on the club and the vast majority of Roma’s well-behaved supporters” after clashes outside the stadium.
The Italian club said it was cooperating with Liverpool FC, Uefa and the authorities, adding that its thoughts were with the victim’s family.
Merseyside police confirmed that nine men, aged between 20 and 43, were arrested for various offences before and after the game, in which Liverpool beat Roma 5-2.

Ch Supt Dave Charnock said: “The vast majority of the 52,500 fans attending the game were well-behaved and went to watch a good game of football. However, a minority of fans from both Liverpool and Roma were involved in isolated pockets of disorder in the city centre and near to the ground.”
BBC footage of an altercation between fans showed men carrying belts, and one with a hammer. Journalists at the game reported seeing a group of Roma fans use a side road to enter an area where Liverpool fans were gathered, before violence broke out.
Charnock said detectives were also investigating the use of flares outside the stadium before the game. “A number of those in the crowd that had gathered to greet the Liverpool team coach were in possession of flares and work is ongoing to identify those responsible and to establish if offences have been committed,” he said.
In a statement on Wednesday, Uefa said it was “deeply shocked by the vile attack”. It added: “The perpetrators of this ignominious attack have no place in and around football and we trust they will be dealt with the utmost severity by the authorities. Uefa is waiting to receive full reports before deciding on potential disciplinary charges.”
Liverpool FC said it would offer the victim and his family its full support, and called on supporters and those who attended the game to respond to Merseyside police’s appeal for information.
On Tuesday night, there was an increased police presence around the stadium after Manchester City’s team bus had its windows smashed by bottles and cans before the quarter-final earlier this month.

I experienced the NBA’s virtual reality future and it’s pretty damn cool

I spent an evening with the NBA’s VR crew for the playoffs and they might be onto something here.
I have to admit, I was pretty anti-virtual reality before heading into Bankers Life Fieldhouse ahead of Game 4 between the Pacers and Cavaliers. Sure, I had heard about virtual reality. I had even seen Reggie Miller wear the headset on TNT just a few nights prior.
But I still didn’t quite understand it. Why would I watch a game with a mask on my face, while also being isolated from the things I enjoy about a game, like watching with friends or following along on Twitter?

But I will try anything once. That’s why I was at Game 4 anyway: To try out some virtual reality. Thanks to Intel and the VR team, I had a chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at how it all works.

I first met with Intel exec Nadia Banks, who took me to the VR truck in the broadcast compound, a very typical broadcast truck with lots of screens, dark rooms, and cold temperatures.

The only difference was the guy in front corner with a VR headset on. He’s looking straight at me with that thing, except he doesn’t see me at all because he’s in the VR world. I was going to have to get used to that pretty quickly.
The Samsung VR headset was pretty easy to use, honestly. Since there wasn’t a live game on at the time, I could choose between several replays to watch. I chose to watch back part of Game 3 between the Cavaliers and Pacers. I jump in at a random spot during the game and immediately feel Kevin Love flying down the lane right right at me. I felt like I was about to take a very unwanted charge.
OK, so this is VR. Got it.
I continued to work through the different camera angles available to me. The VR headset does not limit anyone to whatever angle TNT chooses for the average person. I can make my own experience. Courtside seats right at the halfcourt line? Yes please. Suite level? Sure, why not.
Intel has five cameras throughout the arena, including one under each basket. The camera that’s under the basket can show you a lot, like that Kevin Love moment I was talking about. It’s also a 180 degree camera, so it’s picking up everything from left to right and not just in front of you. That’s how VR quickly becomes an immersive experience.

Brad Mangin

My next step was to spend some time with broadcasters Sarah Kustok and Kevin Ray. Each VR game has a broadcast crew, just like any other TNT game. The difference is the 180-degree cameras give fans more access than ever, so the broadcast team cannot call the game traditionally.
“For us to call a game as we would but also giving insight and telling a viewer where to look,” Kustok said. “There are things that we can see in the building, maybe its discussions between a player and a coach. That extra part of the action is where we can let the viewer know they have the opportunity to choose what they see. We watch the court and the monitors and let the fan know they’re seeing a guy like LeBron James coming down the lane. Here’s a replay and LeBron is going to be coming right at you. For me it’s fun. You get to see a player coming on straight at the basket.”
When a viewer watches a game in VR as opposed to anywhere else, they will actually experience what they once couldn’t even see from their couch.
“The technology is amazing because it gives you that 360-degree dimension that watching on a normal broadcast you can’t get,” Ray said. “You see it from any number of angles, and then somebody like Sarah, an analyst, can break it down in three different aspects. ‘Here’s what the ball handler is seeing, here’s what his defender is seeing, and here’s what the weak side defender is seeing.’”

Okay, so this sounds like an NBA junkies dream?
At this point, I’m starting to see how VR could be a cool experience for an intense NBA fan. See how the Cavs blew a defensive coverage from three different angles? See how LeBron finds his spots on the court to make his signature passes? See how Oladipo finds the perfect space to get to the rim? I could totally spend a night watching a game like this and listening to Sarah Kustok break down these moments.
But it doesn’t just have to be for junkies
There is another layer of the VR experience: feeling like you’re actually in the arena. There are plenty of reasons fans may want to have the experience of being at a live game. Maybe they live in a city too far away. Maybe they can’t afford tickets. Maybe sitting in a virtual front-row seat (or anywhere else in the virtual building) provides a trip down memory lane.
Virtual reality gives fans the option to select the vantage point they want to see a game from, making it their own experience.
“It does offer us the ability to be more conversational. Someone is watching this by themselves, so we are all together and giving them that experience” said Kustok.
That experience includes not only the player interactions on the court, but also the atmosphere around it.
“With the intensity of the playoffs, its important for us to be in the arena and pick up on the energy of nervousness or anxiety level within the building,” Ray said. “That adds an important element to it.”
Ray said he could feel Cavaliers fans getting nervous in Game 2 as the Pacers mounted a comeback. As a Pacers fan, I can relate.
Okay, but what about a live game. Is this actually better than on TV?
By this point, I have to admit that I caught a little of the VR fever. Now it was time to actually see it in action.
I put my headset back on just in time for player introductions. From my test run, I remember there is a camera option to go right under the basket, where the Pacers are about to unveil their starting lineup.
I immediately flip over and see photographers beside me begin to crouch into position. The Pacers announcer is getting louder. The crowd sounds like actual thunder. Then I see the players running right at me. Thaddeus Young. Bojan Bogdanovic. Myles Turner. By the time the announcer was revved up to yell “from INDIANA UNIVERSITY … VICTOR OLADIPO!” I swear to everything I was ready to chest bump the dude and jump into the huddle.
I was IN THE HUDDLE. I was THERE!
I pulled off the VR headset and felt total shock that I was actually sitting in a dark truck. I wasn’t in the game at all, but my lord did I feel like it.
I went back and forth between the headset and watching the crew work in the truck. At one point, I told Banks that it felt like she was in the game with me at times.
“That’s the future of this, she said. “That’s where it’s headed”
To be able to actually share this experience with friends would put VR on an entirely different level. It’s something that was talked about during the NCAA tournament as well:

“Once the technology catches up to the concept, it’ll feel like you’re at the game with your friends,” Lavin says. “That’s when it’ll work. It’s a no-brainer. Someday these headsets will look like my eyeglasses, and we’ll have everything right there.”

What we’re seeing now is only the tip of the iceberg for virtual reality. The technology is changing so fast; one of these days, we will be able to watch VR with our friends. Instead of laughing on the couch while watching LeBron and Lance go at it, we could actually experience it together?
“I can’t wait to see how this looks in two years or five years,” Ray said. “I think even using this as a teaching tool for players, it becomes huge.”
For those who may lament missing the interaction on Twitter, incorporating a Twitter feed into the broadcast is on the horizon, too. You can already get scores and stats on the VR broadcast at any time by looking left or right. Twitter could be next.
This will likely never be the only way to watch a game, but it can be a fantastic complementary option. From the player interactions to the breakdown of moments, VR is an entirely new way to watch the game. Don’t forget the moments where you feel as if you could block a shot at the rim like you’re Anthony Davis. It’s quite an experience.
VR is the future, and it might be a pretty neat one after all.

The next NBA game in virtual reality is April 25 between the Rockets and Timberwolves. There were be at least 12 additional games available in VR through the end of the Western Conference Finals

Save all the photos, videos, and messages you’ve EVER posted – simple guide on how it's done!

The Facebook Cambridge Analytica scandal has made people all the more paranoid (and rightly so) about just how much information social media services have about us. Since then, Facebook has been in massive damage control mode, panicked that people will flee its services.
Of course, Facebook is more than just Facebook. It also owns WhatsApp and ert_main_wide_image/public/2018/04/screen_shot_2018-04-25_at_3.14.00_pm.jpg?itok=SWyldZQR” alt=”” />

OnePlus 6 launch date revealed: How to buy tickets to the “Speed You Need” event and watch the livestream

Following countless rumours and teasers, OnePlus has revealed when the covers will finally be taken off the OnePlus 6. 
This is unlikely to be the global OnePlus 6 release date, as phones typically go on sale a week or so later, but it will be the first time we’ll get to see the phone’s features, specs and confirm how much it will cost.
OnePlus 6 launch event
 Just six months after the launch of the OnePlus 5T, the OnePlus 6 launch event, dubbed “The Speed You Need”, will take place in London at 17:00 BST on 16 May 2018. The exact location is not yet known.
There will additionally be a livestream, for those who don’t get tickets to the OnePlus 6 launch event or can’t make it to London. The livestream won’t go live until the day of launch, but you can sign-up to watch the stream on OnePlus’ website. 
“Across the past four years, OnePlus has been built and shaped around its Community,” said OnePlus. “To celebrate the announcement of its much-anticipated OnePlus 6, the company will host the biggest ever Community event in its history.”
How to buy tickets to the OnePlus 6 launch event
Tickets for the OnePlus 6 launch event are now on sale from the OnePlus website. 
Early Bird tickets cost £16 (€18) and are on sale between now and 20:00 BST on 27 April. Standard tickets then go on sale from 20:01 BST BST on 27 April, for £30 (€34). Alternatively, you can buy a ‘Plus One’ ticket for £20 (€23) per ticket, minimum order of two tickets.

Anyone who buys a ticket to the OnePlus 6 launch will also be given a “swag bag” with exclusive The Speed You Need event items and will be sent a mystery gift when they buy a OnePlus 6. For comparison, the swag bag at the OnePlus 5T event included a OnePlus backpack, T-shirt, stickers and a coupon for the OnePlus 5T.
“While this is OnePlus’ biggest Community event ever and everyone is invited, the reason for putting tickets on sales is due to the limited number of seats available,” said OnePlus. “To ensure no-one misses out, OnePlus is asking people to buy a ticket in advance.”

2018 release date, specs, price, latest news and rumours

iPhone X Plus (2018): Release date, specs, price, latest news and rumours
Following on from the iPhone X, Apple is thought to be lining up a handful of new phones to release in 2018, including the iPhone 9 and iPhone SE 2. We could also be getting an iPhone X Plus, too, if the rumours are to be believed, so here’s everything you need to know, including all the latest and iPhone X Plus release date, specs, and price rumours.
The iPhone X was one of our favourite phones last year, so it’s safe to say we’re excited about the potential release of an iPhone X Plus in 2018.
One of the first teasers we’ve had comes to us via an investor note from Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang (H/T AppleInsider), which suggests that three iPhones are indeed incoming in 2018 under the codenames ‘Jaguar’, ‘Porsche’ and ‘Rolls-Royce’.
‘Jaguar’ supposedly refers to the more affordable LCD iPhone being developed, which could be called the iPhone SE 2 in its final incarnation, while ‘Porsche’ is allegedly the 5.8-inch OLED 2018 iPhone – likely the iPhone 9.
But it’s ‘Rolls-Royce’ were really interested in here – and not because we’ve got a big night out planned in Ibiza.
It’s because Zhang is tipping the ‘Rolls-Royce’ to be a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone, which slots nicely in with our hopes of seeing an iPhone X Plus released this year.
Moreover, the note says that the device will be offered with an ‘iPen’, which could be the oft-rumoured Apple Pencil 2 we’re expecting to see unveiled at some point this year.
Apple has long been linked with bringing stylus support to its iPhone range, so this all sounds pretty reasonable to our eye. And if it does indeed reveal its biggest handset to date in the iPhone X Plus, it’s the obvious place for the new accessory to land.
Here’s when we think such a phone might come out and how much it could set you back.

iPhone X Plus (2018) Release Date and Price: When is the iPhone X Plus coming out?
We don’t know for sure, but based on Apple’s traditional iPhone release patterns, the smart money is on sometime in autumn 2018.
The Cupertino-based company typically holds a dedicated iPhone launch event in September, so that’s the month to mark on your calendar.
However, if the firm is indeed planning to release no less than three iPhones this year, there’s every chance we could see one of them announced at WWDC 2018 to help showcase iOS 12 – of the rumoured new Apple devices, the cheaper LCD iPhone SE upgrade seems most likely.
In terms of pricing? Well, we can tell you the 2018 iPhone X Plus won’t be cheap.
Given it’s Apple and the iPhone X starts at an eye-watering £1000, you can expect the iPhone X Plus to cost at least a grand, and probably a fair whack more.
The price differential between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is £100 (they cost from £699 and £799, respectively), so an almost oligarchic £1100 starting price for the iPhone X Plus isn’t at all out of the question.

That’s all we know for now, but stay tuned, as the iPhone X Plus rumour mill is just getting started.
