BGR, citing some of its sources, claims that the alleged Amazon smartphone will make use of a combination of cameras, sensors and software for interacting with the device. Further, the report notes that the combination will make use of a number of 3D effects on the Amazon smartphone.As reported earlier, the prototype high end model of the rumoured Amazon smartphone is said to sport a total of six cameras: one at the rear, one at the top front panel, while four are placed on four corners on the front. The report also suggested that the four camera units are low power infrared cameras that would work with other sensors on the Amazon smartphone for the 3D effects on the screen.BGR also claims that the Internet retailer will introduce new gesture controls on its first smartphone, such as tilt in different directions while the device is being used to display additional details on the display without even touching the screen.The report further details some of the gesture functions in the yet to be named Amazon smartphone, like if a user performs tilt gesture after searching a place in the maps app, Yelp ratings will appear for various results on the searched place’s map.Another tilt gesture function is said to be used in Amazon’s video store, which is likely to show IMDb ratings on top of movie thumbnails.In addition, apart from sensors and multiple gesture functions, the alleged Amazon smartphone is said to come with optical character recognition (OCR) and other technology which will automatically recognise text and convert it to a digital note if a user captures image of signs and other real life objects with printed text using the device’s primary rear camera.An earlier leak had tipped that the e commerce giant has been working with third party developers to build apps for its 3D interface..

Well, we can predict. I was let known about this upcoming IPO called Affirm through a newsfeed and a brief read up during this weekday lunch perked my interest enough to delve deeper. Interestingly, it is in the payments industry, more specifically the merchant acquiring segment which is in my line of work. I definitely had to research this and understand what is so special about its payment model that it is going for IPO.
Typical of Lustron homes, the small two bedroom home is built as a slab on grade with a metal exterior. The applicant indicated the inefficiencies of the structure, especially in regards to the lack of insulation in the winter. The Lustron home on the property is a unique example of affordable post World War II housing.
