City Slikkers is a Pervasive Game (alternatively Location Based Game) which takes place in the real-existing city. It is designed to connect a large number of players through-out the world and change the way the surroundings are seen. The central idea behind the concept is to give people the opportunity to symbolically interfere with the everyday urban environment and come into contact with previously unknown people. By introducing a metaphorical recapture of the city?s elements (buildings, squares, streets), a virtual reorganization of the urban space leads to a new relationship between the players and their environment. In the sacred space of the game world, the city is under their control thus giving the players a feeling of superiority. As the playing community will always be a minority they hereby form some kind of elitist, secret society which is based on knowledge, but not financial or political power. The interactions are only accessible through physical movement in the urban space and the use of a mobile device which acts as some kind of third eye. The players are always connected to a server and located using GPS technology. This allows an alternative view on the surrounding world and lets players manipulate objects to see and experience for others in realtime. The players in action form packs, hordes, and gangs. They contrast with the institutionalized and organized space and give it spontaneity and dynamics. To develop into the leading group, players have to team up so that they are able to combine resources and strength.

Refurbished Note 7 will be $250 more affordable than the original.
Samsung announced at the end of last month that it would bring back the Note 7 as a refurbished device in select markets. The refurbished model was spotted undergoing Wi-Fi certification earlier this week, and a report out of South Korea suggests the phone will be available at the end of June.
The refurbished Note 7 will feature a smaller 3000mAh battery, but the rest of the components will be unchanged from last year’s model. Samsung has around 3 to 4 million units of the Note 7, and plans to sell 10% of them — or 300,000 units — in its home market. The phone is likely to be called the Note 7R, and is estimated to go on sale for 700,000 won ($620), which is $250 less than what the Note 7 retailed for last year.
As of now, there’s no information regarding other markets where the phone will be made available, but it is possible Samsung will bring the Note 7R to other Asian countries.
OnePlus’ upcoming flagship is rumored to sport dual rear cameras.
OnePlus is getting ready to launch its 2017 flagship, which will allegedly be called the OnePlus 5. Tetraphobia — the fear of the number 4 — is a common superstition in Asian countries, and in Chinese culture the number is considered unlucky as it sounds similar to the Mandarin word for “death.” Anyway, it looks like OnePlus doesn’t want to jinx its upcoming phone, so it’s skipping a number.
As for the device itself, a render leaked by India Today suggests the phone will have a dual camera setup at the back along with a brushed aluminum body similar to what we’ve seen on the OnePlus 3T.
The render comes from “people who have seen the phone and have possibly worked on the OnePlus 5,” with the publication stating that the device will make its debut within the next two months with simultaneous launches planned for China and India.
Chinese manufacturers have introduced various implementations of the dual …

And the much shorter list of Vauxhall cars:
Some of these models may already have Android Auto – sometimes Google updates the lists after the cars themselves are updated.

Twitter changes the user interface almost constantly on its beta app – I suppose that’s to be expected. The latest new feature in testing is a live counter for likes, retweets, and replies on each tweet. The counter appears to update roughly once a second.
The feature showed up for Artem on Twitter Beta 6.45.0-beta.599, but I am on the same version and don’t have it, so perhaps it’s a server-side test. You can grab that version from APKMirror if you want to check for yourself.
