Tech Talk-New Tech and Tech News

Technology Matters

    Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy S-7 and S-7 Edge.  Also out, a first-ever virtual reality device – a camera capable of taking 360-degree pictures and videos.  It’s the “Gear Three-60.”
    The camera can shoot v-r images and transfer them to the phone for editing.  The finished product can be viewed with a Gear V-R headset.
    The Gear Three-60 goes on sale later this year.  No price yet.

    If you can order that from Amazon you may pay for shipping.  The minimum amount to enjoy free shipping has increased from 35-dollars to 49-dollars.  Those with a Prime membership, costing 99-dollars, will still enjoy free shipping.

    There’s a new way to pay for a new phone or whatever.  Mastercard is launching technology to let you approve online purchases with a selfie.  The company says selfies and fingerprint scans are safer than typed passwords.
    Download the Mastercard Identity Check app.  You take a selfie each time you buy online.  Mastercard makes you blink — to show you’re taking the pic as you shop.
    The fingerprint scanner is easier.  Especially if you have a new iPhone with the technology already built in.
    Mastercard is also researching ways to use your heartbeat and scans of your eyes to authenticate purchases.

    After a day phone shopping, ordering on Amazon and paying with your face, its time to relax with a little exercise.  One that involves drinking.
    A California mother posted a 15 second video dubbed “The Wine Workout.”  She shared the vid on Facebook and it blew up.  She posted other video minus the adult beverages, but this one is a hit.
    April Storey says she’s received both positive and negative comments about the wine workout.
    She says the point is you can workout every day, anywhere and use anything.  Just don’t forget the corkscrew.
