Huge Changes To TV Cricket In Australia, With Kerry Packer’s Channel 9 Losing Out.

Despite the timing it is NOT directly related to the ‘ball tampering‘ scandal, THOUGH Steve Smith could end up, ironically, as “Fox Sports” commentator. That is how I got to learn about it. Smith was in New York talking to “Fox Sports”. There is no shame these days.

Channel 9, Kerry Packer’s station, is losing rights to Test Matches after 40-years — bar the 2019 Ashes in England, which was exempt, because it had been previously negotiated.

“Fox Sports” has muscled in.

End of what was a long era.

So much of cricket today, One-Day Internationals in colored clothing and T20, can be traced back to Kerry Packer and his “World Series Cricket” in the late 1970s. I hated Packer for what he did to my beloved cricket at the time. Decades later, when everything was finally patched up, I grudgingly forgave him since he wasn’t all bad. He must be rolling in his grave.

Anywho … Now you know what is happening Down Under.

Is My Google Pixel 2 Visual Core Enabled — I Got The OTA February 2018 Update Today.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. I went looking for it twice once I had read about the OTA February 2018 update. Got, around 4:15pm. Took some time to install.

Click to access “Android Central” coverage.

Click pictures to ENLARGE.

I took these pictures a few minutes ago.
The ‘Visual Core’ should have active.

I read about the February 2018 ‘Over the Air’ (OTA) security update for the Google Pixel 2 and how it was supposed to enable the ‘Visual Core‘ (for enhanced image processing) this morning.

So, I checked whether I had had the update. I hadn’t. I couldn’t get it either. But, I tried again around 4:15pm and it started downloading, 50MB. Took a few minutes to install.

I can’t say I have noticed any difference in the images the Pixel 2 has taken since. I will have to keep on trying.

Since I bought my Pixel 2 directly from the Google Play store I am supposed to get OTA updates ahead of others. So, it might take some time before you all get it.

Stay tuned.
