What is the difference between Viber and Skype? Well, after the recent updates you cannot fight the feeling that Viber has become the purple Skype. On the other hand, this is very similar to a situation when Twitter has become to resemble Facebook in an unprecedented way with is latest account’s page updates.
We do not say this as if it’s something wrong. We just want to know what is the main picture we are missing? Now, you can install the Viber on your desktop computer or laptop. You can transfer calls to your phone. In addition, you can make video calls, which is undoubtedly a great thing and change.
So, what is going to happen now? How these changes are going to affect our choice of the most preferred communication app? Are we on the same page when we say that the modern apps have become too much similar to each other? What is next? WhatsApp will introduce calls, as well.
Do you see the point? Nowadays, you can tell a difference between the apps more because of their colors, and less because of their features. However, there is a limit to your so-called clone updates. One day your app forgets who it really is. And then there is nothing left than to develop the brand new app.
The Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (DK2) is definitely one of the highly anticipated gadgets in this year’s IT world. We are not talking only about gamers, but also the numerous experts from different fields cannot wait to get their hands on this VR (Virtual Reality) tool. Thea possibilities are literally endless.
On the other hand, we are eager to see how the entire Oculus Rift concept will function under the new guidance of the Facebook management team. As you already know Facebook has acquired this VR pioneer with an obvious goal to improve the satisfaction of its users. How exactly? It is left to be seen.
It is worth mentioning that Facebook is not the only major IT league players, who has one of its business eyes on the VR field. Sony is also very active with its VR project with an indicative name – the Project Morpheus. Something is definitely going on in the world of VR tools. Maybe, this is the next big thing.
You do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that the virtual reality can ensure real profits in the real world. The funny thing, though, is its price. The DK 2 will be available for a price between $200 and $400, which is cheaper compared to the newest model of an iPhone or Samsung smartphone. Very real, indeed.
Google drives, and for what is worth, Google flies as well. One very serious rumor has it that Google is deeply involved in the drone stuff. What is the reason for it? Some say that the recent Twitch switch directed by Amazon triggered some nerves in Google. They want to strike back with a vengeance.
It comes without saying that Amazon was eager to turn the next page with the drone-based delivery of ordered goods. Google plans to do something similar with a couple of differences. The first one is related to the very purpose of Google air forces. It is rather humanitarian than commercial one.
You certainly recall Facebook, which airborne ambition was driven by a desire to provide the Internet in the most remote areas. Google drones are supposed to save lives and ease pain of people in trouble you simply cannot reach the other way. However, there is a catch and a serious limitation.
While Amazon drones are supposed to touch the ground during the delivery, the drones made by Google will drop it after you this way or another. Who knows, maybe we are very likely to witness some dog fights between Amazon and Google drones first hand in not so distant future.
