Virtual reality has never been so… real. Companies like Google, Samsung, HTC and Oculus are going all in on this technology. The only issue is that content can be limited. But what if the most popular video streaming services supported 360-degree video?

Cortana has been is currently known as the exclusive digital assistant for Windows Phones. It is known to be Siri and Google Now’s direct competitor, but who says Cortana can’t get along with others? Microsoft is not ruling out the possibility of this service coming to other platforms.
In an interview with Reuters, Eric Horvits, managing director of Microsoft Research, says the company is planning a bigger roll out of Cortana, later this year. In addition, “people familiar with the project” also say a standalone app will be coming to Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.

Flying experiences can be very polarizing. Some are great, while others are pretty horrible. Don’t you hate it when you get to your seat and you have no charging ports? Or when a flight has no WiFi? There is no reason to go through that in 2015.
This is why Google has partnered with Routehappy to bring you better information via Google Flights. This service can now tell you which flights offer WiFi, charging ports or spacious leg room. Go check it out before you fly again.
Opinion: Seriously, guys. I hate when planes don’t offer WiFi. It’s my #1 complaint every single time it happens. Give me all the nasty peanuts you want, but offer me internet!
