11 essential VR apps every Oculus Quest owner should download first

TwitterFacebook

So you’ve just bought yourself an Oculus Quest. Hello, wireless VR with head and hand-tracking! 

You’re probably going to download a bunch of games (we highly recommend Beat Saber, Sports Scramble, and SuperHot VR to get you started). But there’s a whole lot more to do in VR on the Quest beyond slicing rhythm cubes and dodging bullets in slow-motion.

With the right app, you can do stuff your parents could only dream of doing, like running your Windows PC (all of it) in virtual space, or…

Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition violated children’s privacy, say advocacy groups

TwitterFacebook

Privacy concerns surrounding Amazon’s Echo line of smart speakers are nothing new, but it’s a different ballgame when children are involved.

Several advocacy groups collectively lodged a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission on Thursday, accusing Amazon of farming personal data from children using the Echo Dot Kids Edition released last year. Amazon denied the accusations, claiming its practices were fully compliant with federal laws, according to the New York Times.

‘Top End Wedding’ reinvents the rom-com in Australia’s stunning Northern Territory

TwitterFacebook

You’ve never seen a rom-com like this.

Sure, Top End Wedding treats you to the stereotypical elements of the genre: going home, family drama, car trouble, a right-at-the-gate airport scene, and one hell of a bridesmaids troupe.  

But it’s not set in Love Actually’s London, You’ve Got Mail‘s New York, or My Best Friend’s Wedding‘s Chicago. It’s set in Australia’s Northern Territory.

Apple shuts down screen limiting apps, but its own version is flawed

TwitterFacebook

With Apple’s iOS 12 arrival in September, iPhone users saw “Screen Time” features make their way to  phone screens to counter-intuitively help them spend less time on their phones. But Apple’s built-in phone addiction fighting tool isn’t necessarily the best way to decrease screen time.

Although users could finally track phone and specific app usage while also limiting the amount of time spent on the phone and in apps, it didn’t instantly eliminate the problem. For parents, it offered a way…

‘Bring Your Kids to Work Day’ didn’t go so well for Sarah Huckabee Sanders

TwitterFacebook

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders probably thought holding a mock press briefing on “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day 2019″ would go smoothly but, hoo boy, was she wrong.

While Sanders was fine hosting a group of kids (mostly the children of the White House press corps), she hasn’t hosted an actual press briefing for actual reporters in 45 days which is a new record

Kids of WH Press Corps members are getting ready for a briefing with @PressSec. Their parents have…
