A killer app would help. Beat Saber seems like a good start. Beat Saber is one of the smash hits of the virtual gaming world, relatively speaking. The musical fitness game is one of CNET’s favorite VR games for good reason: it’s addictive, active and wonderfully tuned. It’s even an arcade game. It’s also going to be a launch game for the Oculus Quest when it arrives later this spring, Facebook revealed on Monday.The Oculus Quest is a fully wireless, standalone VR system that allows full six degrees of freedom (6DoF) room motion. That’s a perfect pairing for the arm swinging of Beat Saber. My early experiences with the Quest were promising, and it seems to be aiming for a Nintendo Switch-like gaming focus at launch. As to how well it works on a mobile system? We’ll follow up when we can. Meanwhile, check out the trailer below.

first_imgVivo India under fire for sacking employeesFacebook/VivoIndiaChinese smartphone manufacturing firm Vivo has come under fire after it sacked about 20 employees on Tuesday, July 25. Following the layoffs, over 100 employees gathered at the brand’s Greater Noida manufacturing plant and protested against the company and even clashed with its security personnel.The employees of the organisation said that those sacked were not given prior notice and had no alternate jobs to fall back on. The employees were reportedly told to wind up after lunch as there was not enough work for them. There were also rumours that the firm was gearing up to lay off more number of employees after which the tensions are said to have escalated.”Believing the information, the employees stopped their work, and started gathering inside the premises. They soon started raising slogans against the company management. The officials tried to pacify them but they did not listen,” the Times of India quoted an official as saying.The protesting employees are said to have vandalised the Greater Noida office premises and broke some equipment. Some of them are also said to have stolen mobile phones. The Greater Noida police then had to step in and control the protest and six persons were arrested. The police are also going through the CCTV footages to identify others.”The police team conducted a search at the company premises and arrested six persons. The accused were produced in court and sent to judicial custody,” Nishank Sharma, CO II, Greater Noida, told the daily.Post the clash, the Vivo office remained closed on Wednesday, and the officials said that they were assessing the damage and carrying out maintenance and repair work.Meanwhile, speaking of the layoffs, Vivo India said that they were in tune with the company’s business decision. “We look at staffing the right size in various divisions to improve productivity.

Prince Harrys inadvertent diss towards brother William Duke of Sussex makes insulting

first_imgPrince Harry and Dr. Jane GoodallThe Duke and Duchess of Sussex Official Instagram (sussexroyal)Meghan Markle’s Vogue issue seems to be more trouble than it was worth. Reportedly, Prince Harry appeared to make a “tactless” jibe directed at Prince William and Kate Middleton in Meghan Markle’s Vogue edition amid an ongoing alleged feud between the royal couples, a commentator claimed.There have been reports of an alleged feud brewing between the couples Cambridge and Sussex. And Prince Harry’s comments in the September issue of Vogue may have only added fuel to the fire. In the interview with Dr. Jane Goodall featured in the issue, Prince Harry stated that he won’t be having more than two children as he is thinking about the environment. Now, it is known that Harry’s elder brother Prince William has three children.Prince Harry’s comments may be construed as a dig at Prince William’s Family planning, maybe even his disregard for the environment.  Meghan MarkleThe Duke and Duchess of Sussex Official Instagram (sussexroyal)Prince Harry said: “I think, weirdly, because of the people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve been fortunate enough to go to, I’ve always had a connection and love for nature…..I view it differently now, without question.”He added: “I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…”He went on to say that he plans to have a maximum of two children. Now, the brothers have been growing apart for a while now. But they have always supported each other and refrained from snide remarks. Not that Prince Harry’s remarks are snide, far from it, in fact. But the public could see it as a lack of unity between the two Royal couples. We hope that Prince Harry and Prince William are able to put aside their differences and work together.last_img read more
