Hololens 2 Hands-On: Mixed reality moves forward at MWC 2019

HoloLens 2 will initially be available for $3,500 in the US, Japan, China, Germany, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Australia and New Zealand, the company announced at the ongoing 2019 Mobile World Congress here on Sunday.

Microsoft says HoloLens 2 will have a lot of practical applications. "While the company has previously licensed tech to the USA military, it has never crossed the line into weapons development". "We did not sign up to develop weapons, and we demand a say in how our work is used". This is especially useful considering that a single headset is typically used by many. "Workers are demanding that our leadership terminate the contract".

Even in this uneasy environment, Microsoft has maintained that it intends to keep working with the military.

Samsung Galaxy A-series launch
It has the infinity-V waterdrop style notch design on the front and is powered by Exynos 7884B SoC with an octa-core CPU. Samsung Galaxy A50 will sport a 6.4-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels.

Adam Schiff ‘Absolutely’ Willing To Go To Court To Obtain Mueller Report
Speaking with reporters last week, President Donald Trump said he had not spoken with Barr about the Mueller report. Waiting for the Mueller report? "I don't know that you can", he told host Margaret Brennan.

Google is adding Assistant to Android Messages
Android is the world's dominant computer operating system, with a more than 80 percent market share according to IDC. The app, which first debuted in 2016, was one of the first products to showcase the Google Assistant .

"We're also clear-eyed about the responsibilities we have as a corporate citizen on the unintended consequences of technology", he added. "We want the people of this country and especially the people who serve this country to know that we at Microsoft have their backs". The company even said previous year that it would help employees who are not willing to work on a certain project that could be used by the government by moving them to a different part of the company. "Our demand has nothing to do with supporting the military or not, and everything to do with creating tools to harm others", a Microsoft employee behind Friday's protest letter told PCMag. This suggested solution "ignores the problem that workers are not properly informed of the use of their work", the letter states.

What's more though is this is not just your standard Kinect that we saw with the current Xbox One, but rather a completely enhanced device that will be integrated with the cloud and make use of Microsoft Azure's cloud AI technology, as well as receive additional sensors like an enhanced depth sensor (as found on the latest HoloLens), 7-microphone array for computer vision and speech purposes.

"We always appreciate feedback from employees and provide many avenues for their voices to be heard", Microsoft said in a statement emailed to FedScoop. And from the looks of things, the company is continuing to remain firm on its position with government contracts.
