Samsung’s HMD Odyssey is the best way to experience Microsoft’s Mixed Reality

S-1-of-4-796x417.jpg
When Microsoft announced its entrance into the VR headset market, its partner products were attractive and relatively inexpensive, but didn’t live up to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive in terms of pure image quality and specs. Enter Samsung’s HMD Odyssey, a $499 headset that can compete with the best of them. I’ve been living with the Odyssey for the past couple of months, spending many an hour immersed in Microsoft’s mixed reality world. The Odyssey’s combination of some of the highest resolutions around and OLED technology makes it one of the more pleasant VR experiences I’ve tried. For comparison, the…

Video shows how insanely fast the new Tesla Semi truck can accelerate

TwitterFacebook

Tesla’s all electric truck doesn’t care about speed limits. 

YouTuber Richard Fielder caught the recently unveiled semi-truck driving through a residential street earlier this week. When it passed the 25 mph speed limit sign, it accelerated so quickly that its tires started smoking. 

The company’s site brags that its Semi can “provide maximum power and acceleration and require the lowest energy cost per mile.” It can reach 0-60 miles per hour in only 20 seconds, even when it’s fully loaded. 

Looking at this video, we believe it. And if you’ve ever been stuck behind a semi at a light, you’ll appreciate the Tesla’s capabilities. Read more…

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update reaches 85 percent of PCs

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is now on almost all Windows 10 PCs, reaching 85 percent of machines according to the latest numbers provided by AdDuplex.

One swallow doesn’t make a summer, but the rollout of version 1709 suggests that Microsoft has found its rhythm for these updates. In response to a range of annoying problems around the deployment of version 1607, the company was very conservative with the release of version 1703. Microsoft uses a phased rollout scheme, initially pushing each update only to systems with hardware configurations known to be compatible and then expanding its availability to cover a greater and greater proportion of the Windows install base.

Version 1703 was only installed on around 75 percent of Windows 10 PCs when 1709 was released. 1709 has already passed that level, and we’re still some weeks away from the release of 1803. Microsoft hasn’t yet announced when that version will be released, but based on the releases of 1709 and 1703, we’d be very surprised to see it before around mid-April. The new version also doesn’t yet have a name; we’ve hoped that Microsoft would just stick with version numbers (as the year-month version numbers are easy to understand and compare), but so far the company hasn’t said anything on the matter.
