Spotify's big stock debut, Mozilla releasing AR/VR FirefoxToday's major tech stories include Spotify's soaring stock debut, Mozilla's AR/VR version of its Firefox browser and HTC Vive VR headset update reviews.
This is cnet and here are the stories that matter right now. Spotify's stock has spiked after making a debut on the public markets. Its opening price of $165.90 a share puts its valuation at around $29.5 billion, and that's up from 19 billion. You can find Spotify's ticker name on the New York Stock Exchange as simply SPOT. Mozilla is making a mixed reality version of its Firefox browser that it's calling Firefox Reality. The browser will work on VR and AR hardware, although there's no immediate release date. The idea is to get Firefox into your AR or VR headset and browse like you would with a computer version, but with special accessibility controls for the different environmental challenges. Look for Firefox Reality coming soon. And speaking of VR, reviews of the HTC Vive Pro are in, and it's getting craze for its improved ergonomics, usability, and higher quality screens. So what's the bad news? Well, it costs $800 with none of the sensors or controllers it needs to function. When it's all said and done the Vive Pro should only be considered by hardcore enthusiasts.
