Debris from SpaceX’s failed Falcon 9 launch washes up in England


When SpaceX’s Falcon 9 broke up in the skies above Florida’s Cape Canaveral, pieces of the rocket fell into the sea, presumably never to be seen again. It’s been almost five months since Elon Musk and co. confirmed a faulty strut had caused the accident, but yesterday debris from the failed launch finally washed ashore — not on the Eastern US seaboard, but thousands of miles away in a cluster of islands just off the southwest coast of England.

LG has no plans to release the V10 in Canada


LG V10 Hands On-5

LG has been making some major news in the past week; let’s try to recount some of it: A canceled Urbane 2, a flagship campaign, a major management restructuring, a new mobile processor, and even a massive monetary investment.

The news we are now reporting on however, is sure to sound somber to some. LG Canada, via a reply on Facebook, has now confirmed that the new V10 will not be released in the country.

Here is the original post that user Jason Schabler asked LG Canada:

LG are you going to update the status of when the V10 is coming to Canada , before xmass or ? By not responding I assume you want people to look elsewhere for their cell phone fixes and needs. I know for one if the V10 does not come to Canada soon Samsung wants my business. Cheers. J

And here is the reply:

Hello Jason, Thanks for your excitement and interest in LG and our products! Unfortunately, there aren’t any plans to bring the V10 to Canada. We encourage you to check out some of other amazing phones, like our flagship LG G4. It boasts a highly-reviewed camera, quad-HD screen and offers an incredible visual experience. Thanks again, Anna, LG Canada Social Media Team.

What to think…

While this news will no doubt disappoint those, like Mr Schabler, who were holding out in hope, do note that there have been times in the past when social media teams have posted inaccurate information. One such example, earlier this year, saw a Sony Twitter account proclaiming only Z-series devices would be updated to Lollipop, something that was quickly rendered inaccurate as other lettered models began to receive it.

Still, given that this is the only official answer that has been given from LG about the matter, it should be taken as the company’s official stance until proven otherwise.

…and why to think it

Released last month, the LG V10 packs some of the same advanced hardware seen in the spring’s G4, but adds in new features like a metal frame along the sides of the device and a secondary ticker display. It is also extremely resistant to damage from drops, as we found out first hand. Given that it’s the company’s secondary flagship of the year, and in some ways higher than the G line itself, one might think a glorified global roll-out would be a proper priority.

LG V10 Hands On-3

While this is just speculation, it’s quite possible that the phone has not been faring as favorably as some might have foreseen. Reports had already came out of Korea shortly after launch there that suggested this was happening. Perhaps more telling though, LG itself has not released any PR statements to make prominent proclamations of people purchasing the product. The restructuring details alluded to at the opening of this piece would further this belief, as sales of the phone are arguably not significant enough as to calm the nerves of the smartphone segment’s performance and viability.

Wrap Up

LG V10 04

What do you think about this news? Are our Canadian readers upset by it? Were you planning to get the V10, or had you already set your sights on something else? For that matter, are customers in other countries bothered by this development, given that Samsung also decided to deny availability of one of its most proper products to an entire part of the world’s population?

Perhaps the larger, looming and lingering question though: for those in Canada who wanted the device, will you now take to importing it if you haven’t done so already?

ICYMI: Plant-powered lamps, livestreaming AI and more


ICYMI: Plant-Powered Lamps, Livestreaming AI and More

Today on In Case You Missed It: A coder from the Netherlands used a live webcam feed for a walk around Amsterdam, running neural network code that identified everything in view. Despite some obvious set-backs (it thought the creator was wearing a suit when he really wore a zip-up hoodie, natch), it impressively identified boats in a river and stacks of bikes. Researchers in Peru invented prototype lamps that run off of the bacteria of living plants. And a new security system for the camera-hacking adverse works by setting up a motion-detecting mesh network.

Microsoft Lumia 950 review: Not a flagship, but a first step


After years of misguided attempts at mobile, Microsoft is ready for a fresh start. While Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 mostly just looked like their desktop counterparts, Windows 10 Mobile aspires to something even more substantial. This time, Microsoft tried to build a mobile platform — and a phone — that can seriously replicate some of those big-screen experiences. Rather than just peck out emails and rough drafts on the new Lumia 950, Windows 10 makes it possible to connect a keyboard, mouse and display and let Universal apps like Word and Outlook to get more done.

Microsoft doesn’t think the Lumia 950 is a new phone as much as it a symbol of something new — a standard-bearer for a kind of mobile computing that won’t be contained by a single box in your pocket. Their vision is ambitious, and who knows! They might be right about all of this. For now though, it’s clear Microsoft still has plenty of work to do.Slideshow-342927

The offer applies to all Chromecast models and can be redeemed in at least the US, Puerto Rico, Malaysia, and a number of European countries. Additional countries should be able to snag the deal too, so it’s worth a shot if Spotify is live in your region.

Spotify Premium usually costs $9.99 per month. Alternatively, Google Play Music has a three month free sign-up offer for Chromecast owners as well.

If you don’t own a Chromecast, you can grab a pair of them for just $50 from the Google Store. Spotify is also currently offering 90 days of Premium for just $0.99 anyway, so you don’t really need Google’s hardware to enjoy ad-free music streaming. This offer is good until January 2nd 2016 and should apply to all 60 countries that Spotify is available in.

Sony Working on App to Stream PS4 Games on Mac and PC


Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida has announced on Twitter that the company is working on an official Remote Play app for Mac and PC, enabling users to stream and play PS4 games on desktops and notebooks, per The Verge.

MacBook-Pro-PS4

Remote Play is currently limited to various Sony devices, including the PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV and newer Xperia-branded smartphones and tablets. All new PS4 games must be compatible with Remote Play, except for games that use peripherals such as PlayStation Move.

http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsWhile owning a PS4 gaming console will still be required to play games like Fallout 4 or Destiny on a Mac or PC, the expanded Remote Play app will move Sony games one step closer to true cross-platform playability.
