The Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon Smartwatch

 

 

 

The Apple Watch 2, Samsung Gear 3, the LG Watch Style or the ZenWatch from Asus are just a few of the many wonderful options on the smartwatch market right now, but Louis Vuitton plans to take over this segment in the near future, in style. That’s what they do best, right?

The French luxury label has just unveiled the incredible Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon, representing the brand’s unique approach to smartwatches. The company’s iconic timepiece, the Tambour, has been beautifully converted into a digital wonder, displaying a 42 mm case that’s wider near the case back, with concave sides and the same stylish look we’ve been used to.

 

Available in either a brushed, satin finished stainless steel case, or a black PVD-finished stainless steel version, the watch sports a sapphire crystal with a fixed 24-hour flange ring underneath it. It’s even water resistant to 30 meters, although an IP rating has yet to be provided.

 

The Tambour Horizon benefits from Google and Qualcomm Technology expertise, running on Android Wear 2.0, which means you’ll easily get e-mail and text alerts, it could count your steps and it comes with a wide variety of additional apps. In terms of display, Louis Vuitton’s smartwatch has an AMOLED touchscreen and a resolution of 390 by 390 pixels.

There are no fancy animations on this watch, to save battery – which, by the way, promises about a day’s worth of excitement. Pricing for the Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon smartwatch in steel starts at $2,450, while the black version will retail for $2,900. 

 

Destiny 2 beta error code: Termite hits PS4 launch

Destiny 2 beta error code: Termite hits PS4 launch, Bungie asks for more logins

The Destiny 2 beta is playable for those with a PS4 Pre Order code, with more players from the Xbox One arriving tomorrow.

The new playable version of Destiny 2 is in testing phase, meaning that there could be a lot of bugs hitting players when trying to play.

The first big issue appears to be a Destiny 2 Termite error message, which is apparently linked to those trying to log into the beta.

“The Destiny 2 Beta has begun on PS4 and we are actively monitoring reports as player population rises,” a message from the Bungie support team explains.

“We are monitoring reports of Termite error codes as the population of the Destiny 2 Beta rises. Please continue your attempts to login.”

The new message appearing when players are trying to login, reads: “Failed to download configuration files from Bungie servers, please try again.”

Here’s the solution given by Bungie on how to fix the issue:

“If this is the first time you’ve received this error, please try that activity again and resume what you were doing before the error occurred. If you encounter the issue a second time, please exit Destiny and relaunch the game.

“If you are seeing this error message after exhausting all troubleshooting resources please delete, then re-install Destiny on your console.

“If you re-install and still have this issue, please start a new topic on the #Help forum and let us know which error code you received, what platform you are playing on, and what you were doing when it occurred.”

Players will be hoping to avoid re-installing the beta, as it’s a chunky 15GBs.

There will also be the added problem of more players trying to download the game, meaning a longer wait to start playing again.

How to retrieve the Destiny 2 Beta Client Download Code:

  1. Sign-in to Bungie.net – Create or sign into a Bungie.net account using PlayStation 4 or Xbox Live credentials
  2. Redeem the Early Access Pre-order Code – Enter the Destiny 2 Early Access Beta Code provided by the retailer on Bungie.net/redeem
  3. Retrieve the Destiny 2 Beta Download Code – visit your redeemed codes page on Bungie.net and select your console of choice
  4. Redeem the Destiny 2 Beta Client Download Code – Log into a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One console to redeem the Destiny 2 Beta Client code

As you can imagine, the Destiny 2 beta is going to have plenty more bugs, here’s some to watch out for:

  • Players may experience a variety of networking error codes when attempting to play the Beta
  • Bungie will be testing server stability throughout the Beta, which may cause error codes to appear periodically
  • Location names sometimes do not appear during Crucible gameplay
  • Players sometimes are Kicked to Orbit after witnessing a black screen when entering a Countdown match
  • Players may sometimes be placed at the beginning of the Inverted Spire Strike Activity when joining in progress
  • Sandbox balancing is still taking place: Some weapons or abilities may have higher or lower damage than intended
  • Not all content has been localized in all languages

Walmart Gets Backlash for Selling “N***er Brown” Wig Cap Online

Walmart Gets Backlash for Selling "N***er Brown" Wig Cap Online

Walmart is under fire for the description of a product on the Walmart.com website that allegedly contained a racial slur.

A brown wig cap that was listed and sold by a third-party vendor has reportedly been removed after several people attested to coming across the n-word while skimming the product’s text. “Jagazi Natural’s Full Cap Weaving Net Durable Stretchy Weaving Net Weaving Cap Wig Cap – Size M (N****r-Brown),” a screen shot that has been circulating the internet reads. The Arkansas-based retailer initially edited the text, but it was eventually removed once the controversy broke out.

An apology over the incident was issued by Walmart’s Director of National Media Relations, Ragan Dickens, who stated: “We are very sorry and appalled that this third party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace. It is a clear violation of our policy and has been removed, and we are investigating the seller to determine how this could have happened.”

Rick Ross Attempts To Squash Drake Beef, But Meek Mill Says It’s Still On

Rick Ross Attempts To Squash Drake Beef, But Meek Mill Says It's Still On

(FreshAsFrankie) It seems Meek Mill either didn’t get the memo that his beef with Drake was squashed or chose to discard the message. Regardless, don’t expect those two to collaborate on new music anytime soon.

The confusion stems from a recent interview Meek’s boss, Rick Ross, did with “Best Seat In The House.” He said that he had met Drizzy face-to-face and worked things out.

“We actually sat down. Shout out to J. Prince,” Ross said. “It was really just [bosses having a conversation]. We wasn’t even discussing anything negative because by the time we get in the room, it’s so much other things going on that it’s already let’s get on some money. But I had to just make sure we sat down to have some sort of understanding.”

TMZ reports that despite an “understanding” being reached between Ross and Drake, sources close to Meek say there’s been too much bad blood spilled for him to mend the rift.
