Free Uber rides offered in Nassau, Suffolk on Thanksgiving Eve

Uber is teaming with Mothers Against Drunk Driving to provide free rides across Long Island on Thanksgiving Eve — typically one of the busiest drinking nights of the year.

The ride-hailing company will provide two free rides, up to $15 apiece, to Nassau and Suffolk residents and visitors from 9 p.m. Wednesday through 3 a.m. Thursday.

Thanksgiving Eve is known as “Blackout Wednesday” and is often associated with binge drinking and a large number of DWI arrests.

“We hope that Long Island residents decide to leave their cars at home on Wednesday and use options like Uber to get around,” said Sarfraz Maredia, general manager of Uber for the tristate region.

Richard Mallow, executive director of MADD, called the holiday season “one of the most dangerous times of the year on the road because of the increased frequency of drunk driving.”

In 2016, there were 394 alcohol-related crashes with injuries — 35 with fatalities — in Suffolk, according to data from the Institute for Traffic Safety Management and Research. In Nassau, there were 313 alcohol-related crashes with injuries, 22 with fatalities, the data show.

In total last year, there were more than 9,600 DWI arrests in Nassau and Suffolk, according to institute data.

“Drunken driving kills too many in our communities and this important initiative will save lives,” said Nassau County Executive-elect Laura Curran.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said the free rides would “incentivize residents to stay off the road.”

Ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft began legally operating across the state in June.

Long Islanders can access the free rides through Uber’s cellphone app by navigating to the menu, tapping “payment” and entering the promo code “SAFERIDELI.”

New free iPhone X camera app lets you refocus after you take a shot, like a Lytro camera – BGR

It seems like every new flagship phone that launches these days instantly steals the “best camera” crown until the next flagship phone comes along. Samsung’s Note 8 arguably stole the crown over the summer until the iPhone 8 Plus came along, then the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were widely regarded as the best camera phones until early November when the iPhone X was released. Apple’s dual-lens rear camera setup on the iPhone X is quite similar to the iPhone 8 Plus, but it adds dual optical image stabilization, which helps dramatically with zoomed photos and with the quality of Portrait Mode photographs, which mimic DSLR camera by creating a blur effect on the background known as “bokeh.”

As great as Apple’s new Portrait Mode features are though, there are still some features Apple hasn’t baked into its iOS camera software. Now, one of the coolest missing features has been added to the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone 7 Plus courtesy of a new app.

Remember Lytro? The company is still around with some niche products, but it made waves when it announced its first camera. The odd looking camera let you capture a photo, transfer it to your computer, and then refocus the image at will after the fact. So if you wanted to change the focus from a person in the foreground to a mountain in the background, for example, you could do it in just a few clicks.

There are a bunch of apps of varying quality that let you accomplish something similar on iOS and Android devices, but we’ve never seen anything that offers results like a new app called Focos, which is a free download on the App Store. This awesome app uses Apple’s new Portrait Mode features to offer photos that come closer than ever before to DSLR quality. The app also offers a tap-to-refocus feature with far more impressive results than anything we’ve tested.

Of note, Focos is a free download but you’ll need one of two subscription plans starting at $1.99 to take full advantage of its features. The app’s full description can be read below, followed by a download link.

Focos brings DSLR-like photography to your dual-camera iPhone with large aperture and real bokeh effect, which most photographers have always desired.

DPReview, “Created by the same indie developer behind the apps Colorburn and MaxCurve, Focos takes your iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus or X’s Portrait Mode shots and makes them look more professional by adding more realistic and customizable bokeh effects. The results should ostensibly look better than what Apple is generating with its own Camera app, but at the very least they’ll be more customizable so you can find a more appropriate effect for every photo.”

As a beginner having no prior photo shooting experience, you can take professional-grade pictures with this app at a go without expert skills.
As a professional, you’ll be amazed at professional options available in this offer for you to simulate any type of lens including the top-level or defective ones.

– Press shutter to take pictures with the depth of field without painting or making selection.
– True 3D imaging.
– Large aperture and real bokeh like in DSLR with expensive lens.
– Import existing portrait photos and edit the bokeh effect again.
– Tap to focus after shooting.
– Various diaphragms generate different bokeh spot effects.
– Professional options simulate the pro lens such as creamy, bilinear, swirly and so on.
– View the portrait photos in 3D mode and add the depth filters intuitively.
– Simulate rainy, snowy or foggy weather with depth filters.
– Video tutorials and easy to use.
– Essential tool for iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X having dual cameras.

It is strongly recommended to download this app for those devices with dual cameras.
All sample photos in screenshots and trailers were taken by iPhone 7 Plus.

Samsung Offers Free DeX Station or Gear VR with Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note8

Samsung has kicked off a new promotional campaign that bundles either of the company’s two major smartphone peripherals – the DeX station or the Gear VR headset – with the company’s latest smartphones. The move enables Samsung to increase sales of its hardware and popularize its smartphone-based productivity as well as VR platforms.

For a limited time, Samsung is bundling a DeX or a Gear VR with its Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8 Active, as well as Galaxy Note8 smartphones purchased directly from Samsung.com. The manufacturer normally charges $99 for the DeX station and $129 for the Gear VR, so the promo campaign makes a lot of sense for those who had plans to get one of the devices. There are certain terms and conditions to be met, but the main one is to buy one of the aforementioned smartphones directly from Samsung and include one of the devices into the cart before making the purchase.

This is not the first time when Samsung is bundling DeX or Gear VR with its new smartphones, but it is noteworthy that the company is re-launching the campaign in the middle of the Galaxy S8’s life cycle and ahead of the holiday season. By offering free DeX or GearVR hardware with its latest smartphones, Samsung is killing two birds with one stone. Firstly, it sells a high-end smartphone. Secondly, it popularizes its productivity and VR platforms.

The DeX may not look like a big deal at the moment, but it is an important effort for the company. At present, the DeX allows to run select apps on the big screen and use a keyboard and a mouse to control them. In the future, Samsung plans to enable users to run various Linux applications on its smartphones (through its Linux on Galaxy app), essentially bringing a host of productivity programs to its platform and creating a rival to Microsoft’s Continuum.

Meanwhile, the Gear VR is a strong contender to be the most popular VR platform and offering it for free to owners of advanced smartphones means getting new customers that are willing to pay for content. Samsung’s sales of the Gear VR headsets in Q2 2017 totaled 568,000 units, leaving behind headsets from Sony, Oculus VR, HTC and others, according to IDC. Analysts from the latter believe that bundle deals greatly help Samsung to drive adoption of the Gear VR and therefore it is logical for the company to run various promotions, especially as new contenders are either entering the scene, or are about to.
