Young Millionaire Is Giving Away Money On The Internet

Money, money, money: Dutch millionaires hit a high They aren’t necessarily known for flashing their cash, but the number of millionaires in the Netherlands has reached a 10-year high.   Dutch statistics office CBS tracks the number of people declaring assets of more than €1million to the taxman and found that at the start of 2016, this included 112,000 households.   This is the highest figure since 2006 – and the numbers have increased, even if inflation is taken into account, reports the office. The data, compiled on behalf of…

Český milionář rozdává svůj majetek

Rakouský milionář rozdal svůj majetek, peníze mu prý nepřinesly štěstí Rakouský milionář Karl Rabeder (48) se rozhodl zbavit se majetku, protože mu prý peníze stejně ke štěstí nepomohly. Například jeho alpskou vilu v hodnotě 1,7 miliónu eur (cca 42 miliónů Kč) vyhrála v tombole prodavačka biopotravin.   Devětačtyřicetiletá výherkyně z jižního Německa si koupila jeden lístek za 99 euro (2450 Kč) v netradiční tombole, kterou Rabeder zorganizoval. Milionář, který chce darovat celý svůj majetek v hodnotě kolem 3 miliónů eur (74 miliónů Kč), prý dospěl k poznání, že luxus ho nikdy nečinil šťastným. Teď žije ve dvoupokojovém bytě a cítí…

Facebook prepares to push Oculus VR headsets for businesses

09-oculus-go

When Facebook pitches its Oculus virtual reality headsets to the masses, it talks of their ability to make you feel as though you’re inside a game, visiting another planet or scuba diving next to massive blue whales, without ever leaving your couch. Its next act might be to take that other-worldliness to your work. Via a job posting, Oculus VR is looking for a software expert to work in its Seattle, Washington offices to help build special versions of its $199 Oculus Go and $399 Oculus Quest mobile VR headsets…

Best Black Friday 2018 deals on Apple products: $250 iPad, free iPhone XR, $250 HomePod

Looking to buy some Apple gear this year? Same old story: premium prices, infrequent sales, minuscule discounts. Ah, but Black Friday is just around the corner. Even Apple products go on sale that day, right? Perhaps: Apple just announced its Four-Day Savings Event, which kicks off on Friday, Nov. 23. We don’t know yet whether that will bring actual discounts or just Apple’s usual (cough, lame, cough) gift-card bonuses. But here’s what we do know: There are deals to be had elsewhere on a variety of Apple items. Below I’ve…

Samsung’s leaked Odyssey+ headset: A reboot for Microsoft’s VR ambitions?

samsung-odyssey

I thought the original $499 Samsung Odyssey might be the Windows VR headset to beat — but VR in general hasn’t been an immediately huge success, and we’ve barely heard a peep out of Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality since we discovered the first round of headsets were kind of a mixed bag to begin with. Mostly, we’ve seen price cuts. But as Variety and Road to VR discovered earlier today, Samsung doesn’t seem to have given up on the idea just yet. Thanks to a filing at the FCC, we now know…

To stop copycats, Snapchat shares itself

Evan Spiegel has finally found a way to fight back against Mark Zuckerberg’s army of clones. For 2.5 years, Snapchat foolishly tried to take the high road versus Facebook, with Spiegel claiming “Our values are hard to copy.” That inaction allowed Zuckerberg to accrue more than 1 billion daily Stories users across Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook compared to Snapchat’s 186 million total daily users. Meanwhile, the whole tech industry scrambled to build knock-offs of Snap’s vision of an ephemeral, visual future. But Snapchat’s new strategy is a rallying call for…

Apple blocks Google’s internal apps on iOS devices

Apple is preventing Google from running its internal apps for employees on iPhones and iPads — a move similar to one it took against Facebook earlier this week. The news comes a day after it was reported that Google’s Screenwise Meter app, launched in 2012, invited users 18 and older to earn gift cards in exchange for letting Google monitor and analyze their data. The company sidestepped the App Store and took advantage of Apple’s developer enterprise program, which is designed to let companies internally distribute apps, according to TechCrunch.…

Wear OS: What’s new and what’s coming soon

  At this year’s Google I/O, Google’s smartwatches aren’t invisible like Daydream VR, but they’re definitely laying low. One domed demo space has a number of Wear OS watches running the latest software feature, Tiles, which I had a chance to finally use. But that’s not what things were like last year. A year ago, Google seemed to have big plans for Wear OS. Software updates brought a new, improved interface. New Qualcomm processors promised better performance and sports modes. A wave of new watches started to appear.  There have…
