In 2012, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the body that oversees internet addresses, expanded its list of generic top level domains (gTLD), thereby allowing companies to apply for new extensions. Amazon, not too surprisingly, wanted the .amazon domain, but the eight countries believe this exclusivity could impact on matters of their sovereignty.The issue heated up in 2018 when ICANN removed the Will Not Proceed status from Amazon s application. Last week, the organization said it would grant Amazon s request for the name following a 30 day period of public comment.

Under the concessions model, a mobile carrier has exclusive access to street infrastructure owned by local authorities. If another carrier wants to use the same structure, it pays a fee to the provider whose agreement is already in place.Paul Ceely, director of network strategy with the BT Group, said in a statement: While the concessions model made sense in the early 2010s when it first came into common use, the market and regulatory landscape have changed, and it s become clear that exclusivity agreements act as a barrier to further 4G and 5G investments.
Following the unwanted exclusivity of China only initial release, we were happy to see Vive Focus make its way westward. Still, with geographical change the original problems remained, how to justify a $600 price tag for a 3DOF headset, when the rest of the device is so well made and tailored for so many different businesses. There is a 6DOF controller dev kit out there somewhere, but those are hardly worth the hassle of getting separate parts. Hence the Vive Focus Plus headset. The initially decent device is getting the dev kit addition to make it a complete, hassle free standalone set available in 25 markets worldwide. As with many plus editions of anything, improvements range from subtle to game changing. 6DOF controller belongs to the latter, though we would argue it is more like leveling the playing field rather than changing the game altogether. As for the subtle, they are a plenty. The most noticeable is the way headset looks. The ergonomics has been slightly improved according to HTC, and the color scheme freshened up to include black amp; white interplay. Sound has also been improved to include ultrasonic tracking, while lenses in Vive Focus Plus headset are completely new. What remains the same however, are the processing power and resolution; it is still AMOLED 1,660 x 1,660 per each eye with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC running the show. Going back to the controllers, there are two instead of one on original Focus, and both come with improved functionality of added buttons and triggers.
The company says as demand for the GT outstrips supply six to one (6,506 people applied to own one of the first 500 cars), it s decided to increase the production run from 1,000 to 1,350 cars.

Image credit: Epic GamesFortnite is no doubt the most popular online battle royale game, and it is soon coming to Android devices. Recent rumors have suggested the game to be unveiled alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on August 9. There is also a good chance that the game will be Galaxy Note 9 exclusive for the first 30 days, with the exclusivity being expanded to other Galaxy S series of smartphones for 3 months. However, after that period of time, the game is said to be available for download on Android devices. But there is a catch.
Although Fortnite is a free to play game, Epic Games offers in app purchases that can be acquired by purchasing V Bucks. V Bucks can be used in Fortnite to buy items like the Battle Pass, skins, dances, emotes, gliders, and pickaxes. Epic Games has reportedly made over $1 billion through these in app purchases, and the massive revenue they;ve generated is a big reason the company is opting to not distribute the mobile game via the Google Play Store, as we first reported. Instead, the game will be available on Epic Games; website for select devices after the Galaxy Note 9 exclusivity period is over. Samsung is hoping to entice young gamers to buy the Galaxy Note 9 by offering a special Fortnite promotion.XDA Junior Member thesbros, an expert at data mining, found evidence for this promotion from Epic Games ' own website. He did so by querying the entitlement API, which is responsible for determining if a user is "entitled " to certain promotions and services. For example, if you have the entitlement "Fortnite Android " on your Epic account, then you will be able to access the mobile game on your supported Android device. Within the JSON output are strings that explicitly mention a "Samsung Preorder 15000 V Bucks Promo " entitlement. The only Samsung Galaxy device that we know will be available soon for pre ordering is the Galaxy Note 9. 15,000 V Bucks is about $150, which is within the $100 $150 range that rumors stated would be the value of pre order promotions.
;Will these 1,000 buses fly in air,; a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar asked the Delhi government and the Delhi Transport Corporation, after noting that purchase orders were issued without finalising a plan for parking space. Stressing on the need for low floor buses, the bench said: ;We will not let this exclusivity (against handicapped persons) to persist in Delhi.; On an apparent lack of a plan to park the buses proposed to be procured, the court said: ;We are unable to understand what would be the fate of these buses.; It told the Delhi government that ensuring parking space was ;not like buying buses or potatoes;.The court said that land is not something you cannot manufacture and hence the concern should not be the cost, but optimal use of the land. Unconvinced by the government and the DTC 's claims, the bench asked the Delhi chief secretary to "forthwith " convene a meeting of high level officials and to place before the court an action plan on the nature of parking spaces, their design, the timeline within which the construction would be completed and their location. The bench said it wants the action plan by February 28, the next date of hearing, and failure to do so would result in a stay on the tender as well as the initiation of contempt action against the officials concerned.
First on the list of improvements to the Galaxy S9 will be the inclusion of the Snapdragon 845 processor. Qualcomm;s 10nm will add a great deal of performance and power to an already impressive smartphone series, ensuring that the Galaxy S9 outperforms its Galaxy S8 predecessor.There have even been reports that Samsung has signed an exclusivity deal with Qualcomm, meaning that the processor will only feature in the Galaxy S9 over the next few months. This would certainly up the ante in the Galaxy S9 vs iPhone X war.

UploadVR reports that HTC confirmed the exclusivity for the Japanese market. The report adds that the manufacturer pointed out that the new HTC Link isn't a Vive product.Based on preliminary leaks, the VR headset will support six degrees of freedom (6DOF) tracking which is rumoured to be a highlight feature. It is also said to come with camera and controllers which will have lights on them which could be tracked using an external sensor, a similar setup earlier seen on Sony's PlayStation VR.

HTC Vive;s official said that the strategy employed by Oculus is hurting the VR industry as it;s forcing developers to exchange short term cash for potential long term success. Oculus; focus on platform exclusivity is hence limiting the availability of many VR titles and consequently hurting the VR industry, Breton claims, noting how these issues are even more pronounced due to the fact that Oculus holds a relatively small percentage of the overall VR market. HTC Vive;s executive added that this approach prevents developers from scaling their products to fit the overall market and is consequently stopping them from growing sustainable, long term development studios. On the other hand, Breton said that HTC is only interested in collaborating with studios focused on contributing to the overall VR ecosystem as the Taiwanese company believes that quality content is the key to fueling the adoption rates of this emerging technology.Apart from investment strategies, Oculus and HTC also differ in terms of marketing their hardware. The Facebook owned company recently discounted the price of its head mounted display, but HTC explicitly stated it has no intentions to follow suit in the near future as the firm believes people will be willing to pay a premium price if their money allows them access to high quality content. Overall, only time will tell which approach ends up being the correct one in the end, but as things stand right now, the VR industry is bound to become even more competitive over the course of this year.
After three months of Apple exclusivity, Super Mario Run is warping to Android. The game will launch on March 23, according to a Nintendo tweet on Friday.Super Mario Run is an important part of Nintendo's mobile strategy, and one that Nintendo will need to leverage. iPhone and iPad players downloaded the game 40 million times in its first four days. That being said, only 5 percent of players were reported to have paid the $10, 8 or AU$15 to unlock the full version. Bringing the game to Android will expose it to a much wider audience, but we're left to wonder whether Nintendo waited too long after the hype ended to bring these players on board.
Under Google's leadership, Motorola was perhaps the best manufacturer when it came to Android updates besides Google, of course. They often released Android updates for unlocked devices at the same time as, or shortly after, Nexus devices. Unfortunately updates don't seem to be much of a priority anymore, with Lenovo now at the helm.The Moto Z Droid and Z Droid Force, the Verizon exclusive models of the Moto Z, started to receive Android 7.0 in November. For an unknown reason, the normal unlocked Moto Z sold in the United States was left out even while unlocked models in other regions received Nougat. Some suggested that Motorola had a timed exclusivity deal with Verizon in the United States, and while it seems plausible, it was just a theory.
