Android 8.0 Oreo now rolling out to OnePlus 3/3T with OxygenOS 5.0 update

The update will first be rolled out incrementally and then expand to more users. OnePlus recently announced the 5T as its latest flagship handset, and while the phone does have a lot to offer, one area of annoyance lies with the fact that it won’t receive an official build of Android Oreo until some point in 2018. However, if you own a OnePlus 3 or 3T, an over-the-air update for Oreo is rolling out now. An open beta for Oreo on the 3/3T began in October, but this update is…

US Ambassador to Russia Attacks Moscow’s Pending Restrictions on US-funded News Agencies

The U.S. ambassador to Russia on Sunday attacked Moscow’s move toward forcing nine United States government-funded news operations to register as “foreign agents” as “a reach beyond” what the U.S. government did in requiring the Kremlin-funded RT television network to register as such in the United States. Ambassador Jon Huntsman said the Russian reaction is not “reciprocal at all” and Moscow’s move toward regulation of the news agencies, if it is implemented, would make “it virtually impossible for them to operate” in Russia.

Fireman’s kin seek honor for grandfather who died in 1935

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City firefighter Tom O’Brien had been battling a blaze in Manhattan for two hours on Oct. 27, 1935, and knew something was wrong as soon as he got back to the firehouse. Reports indicate he complained of a booming headache and decided to “self-medicate” with a bottle of booze before heading to his bunk to sleep. He never woke up. Now, 82 years later, O’Brien’s heirs are going to court seeking an honor they say he was unfairly denied: … Read the referenced story here:…

From the Editor’s Desk: How far can OnePlus go with community-driven software and hardware?

It’s always a tough balance between listening to customers and having a central vision. OnePlus held its first ever in-person launch event in New York City this past week. The OnePlus 5T clearly wasn’t a groundbreaking product deserving of a launch event in itself, but OnePlus used this gathering more so as an opportunity to talk directly to fans and curious onlookers alike. Presenters took an inordinate amount of time talking about things the company had already done. Talking about the history of how OnePlus phones are made, and how…

Skyrim VR review: A clumsy, hilarious trip through a familiar world

This is probably not what it feels like to be Dragonborn. From the moment Bethesda announced the seemingly immortal Skyrim would be getting a VR version, there have been a lot of questions. Building a game for VR and building a game for 2D screens require a lot of very different tools and design concepts, but the folks at Bethesda are no strangers to VR concepts. This is the first of several huge VR titles planned over the next couple of months, and with the addition of multiple DLC from…
