Amazon Prime Day, the company’s annual Black Friday-like sales event for Prime members that first launched in 2015, is coming soon. The company today announced that Prime Day 2017 is set for Tuesday, July 11, 2017, and that current Prime members can get an early start on shopping by logging on the previous night, Monday, July 10 at 9:00 p.m. EDT (6:00 p.m. PDT).

Apple’s going big on augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) with iOS 11, and it appears those plans include the Apple Maps app. It was discovered this week that Maps locations which currently support “Flyover Tours” will now have a VR mode called just “Flyover” (minus the Tours). When accessed, the user sees the traditional Flyover view, but instead of the predefined tour video, the view responds to the user’s movement and the position of the iPhone. While currently providing a VR view, it appears that future plans call for AR too, as you’ll get a warning while using the app if there isn’t enough light for the camera. Check it out if you’re running the iOS 11 Beta.

So right off the bat let’s acknowledge that this isn’t cool stuff (darn predefined content categories), but it’s certainly interesting. Last November, a man opened fire inside the Crossgates Mall in Albany, NY. Now that the suspect has been convicted, police this week released surveillance footage from inside the Apple Store located near where the incident took place. The silent surveillance video shows the panic of holiday shoppers and Apple employees as they run for cover, something of which modern Apple Store designs unfortunately provide very little. Still, if you’re ever in a situation like this, try not to trample each other, especially those with strollers, OK? Check out the video and story over at ABC News.
