This is CNET, and here are the stories that matter right now. T-Mobile and Sprint have finally signed a merger deal, with both companies set to join forces under the T-Mobile name and current CEO John Legere. The $26 billion deal will bring together the third and fourth largest carriers in the US to compete against Verizon Wireless and AT&T. After years of talks and rumors, the deal is now expected to close by the first half of 2019. Apple could soon release it's very own VR headset according to sources at the company. The device would be capable running both AR and VR technology with an 8k display for each eye. And would wirelessly connect to a dedicated box powered by a Custom Apple processor. The project, code named T288, is slated for release in 2020. Apple has declined to comment and finally the Blue Origin new ship and rocket successfully blasted into space on Sunday. Reaching an altitude of three hundred and fifty thousand feet before safely landing a few minutes later. The space company, run by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, is hoping to send paying passengers on sub-orbital flights in the coming months. But the rocket's only passenger on Sunday was a dummy named Mannequin Skywalker. [MUSIC] Stay up to date with the latest by downloading the CNet Tech Today app in the Apple or GooglePlay Stores.
