Look, we re just going to go ahead and say it: the Jet Black iPhone 7 and the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus are the most gorgeous smartphones that have ever been created.This is not open to debate.There s simply nothing else like the sleek glossy finish of Apple s Jet Black iPhones, which reflects just the right amount of light to appear as though the glass face of the phone wraps straight around to the back of the device.The Jet Black iPhone 7 and the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus are the most gorgeous smartphones that have ever been created… for about 3 minutes after you first remove one from the box.After that, Apple s Jet Black finish starts to scratch and scuff like crazy, and it s also a magnet for grease and grime.Apple didn t exactly admit how delicate its Jet Black finish is when it unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last September, but it did post a disclaimer on its website.

Next month, it will grow to include information about reading times at local libraries and information about city council members and upcoming council sessions.The Alexa skill was made by the Los Angeles Information Technology Agency, and its creators want to explore ways a virtual assistant can prompt participation in democratic processes and deliver government services.We have a tremendous knowledge base online and on the web and we re in the process of coding those aspects so that you can access it through a virtual assistant,  Los Angeles Information Technology Agency CIO Ted Ross told VentureBeat in a phone interview.At a date to be announced, the city plans to bring 311, a service to connect people with essential city services, to Alexa.In Los Angeles, you can call 311 to schedule a building inspection, request graffiti removal, locate non-emergency police services, or report the location of a dangerous beehive.Currently, 311 services are available by phone, as well as through a website and app.The Los Angeles ITA also wants to use voice-enabled assistants like Alexa to collect information from city residents and to allow them to complete city services like the kind found on 311.The staff is in the process of shortlisting the kinds of skills that can be completed quickly and that make sense when using voice as a user interface.Some things are very detail-oriented.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify in court on Tuesday, January 17 for a potentially explosive lawsuit that claims the Oculus VR startup he acquired for $2 billion was based on stolen technology.The more than two-year-old suit against Facebook by game maker Zenimax has culminated with a public trial by jury in a Dallas court that began on January 9.Zenimax is seeking $2 billion in damages against Facebook, which is the amount the social networking giant initially paid to buy Oculus in 2014.Representatives for Zenmiax confirmed to Business Insider that Zuckerberg will take the stand on Tuesday, followed by Oculus cofounder Palmer Luckey later in the week.The trial began on January 9; Oculus CTO and former Zenimax employee John Carmack was the first to testify on January 10.Facebook tried to argue that Zuckerberg shouldn t have to answer questions about his acquisition of Oculus, but the case s judge overruled the request.Luckey s testimony will be his first public appearance since he admitted to secretly funding a political group that created anti-Hillary Clinton memes in September.At the center of the lawsuit is Oculus CTO John Carmack, who previously ran a video game company within Zenimax called id Software and is best known as the mastermind behind video games like Doom and Quake.Zenimax has accused Oculus executives of knowingly stealing its software and trade secrets through the hiring of Carmack and five of his employees from id Software.It claims that Carmack violated his employee agreement with Zenimax by sharing confidential information that Oculus then used as the basis for its VR software.A lawyer representing Zenimax, Tony Sammi, went so far as to call Facebook s acquisition of Oculus one of the biggest technology heists ever during opening remarks to the jury on January 10.Facebook contends that Zenimax s claims are without merit, and that Zenimax only filed the lawsuit because it passed on investing in Oculus before Facebook bought the company for $2 billion and an additional $800 million in employee retention payouts.
