Sean Keane/CNET Niantic added a more robust photo mode to Pokemon Go that’ll let you feel like you’re playing a sequel to Pokemon Snap. (Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York should be pleased.)The Go Snapshot feature, which was added to the Android version last week and the iOS one over the weekend, lets you take photos of Pokemon you’ve already caught, using the mobile game’s AR+ mode. img-4095Raichu wanders in CNET’s London office. Sean Keane/CNET “Select a Pokemon and tap on the screen to throw its Poke Ball to that spot. Once your Pokemon is situated in the ideal spot, you can then move around it to find the best angle for your photo,” Niantic said in a statement Feb. 12.”Is your Pokemon distracted or looking the wrong way? Brush across it to get its attention, and it will be sure to face you.”So you can basically get the Pokemon you’ve caught to do your bidding beyond battling, by having them pose for photos. The shots you take will be automatically saved to your device.”We’ve been inspired by the incredible photos Trainers have taken in AR+ mode and exploring new ways to further bridge the digital and physical worlds through Niantic’s enhanced AR technologies” Ryuta Hiroi, Niantic’s product manager, said in the statement. The augmented reality game was released in July 2016 and has been adding features ever since. It grossed more than $68 million in January, according to Sensor Tower. In September, it hit $2 billion in in-app purchases. Niantic on Tuesday is also adding the ability to switch teams. You’ll be able to purchase a Team Medallion from the in-game store for 1,000 Pokecoins to change between Team Instinct (yellow), Team Mystic (blue) or Team Valor (red, clearly the best).First published Feb. 12 at 10:04 a.m. PT.Update Feb. 25 at 7:22 a.m. PT: Reflects that the feature’s been added and highlights the team-switching features.CNET en Español: Get all your tech news and reviews in Spanish.Culture: Your hub for everything from film and television to music, comics, toys and sports.

LPG plot hatched well ahead of Centres notification Police

first_imgKolkata: Police investigation into the LPG dealership scam in which several people were allegedly duped have revealed that the plot for the scam was hatched days before the Union Petroleum ministry came up with the notification for LPG dealership.According to police sources, BJP leader Ranjeet Majumder who was arrested in connection with this case in the month of September, had made plans a fortnight ahead of the Centre’s notification and had e-mailed the same to a number of district presidents of the party asking them to send names of people who are interested in taking up distributorship. The list was prepared on the basis of this e-mail and amounts ranging from Rs 4 to 7 lakh were collected from each person. The entire transaction was done in cash. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe sleuths, on the basis of this e-mail, have learnt that money was collected from more than 234 persons. It may be mentioned that Majumder was arrested on the basis of a complaint lodged at Jorasanko police station by Ashoke Sarkar, a former BJP leader, alleging “criminal conspiracy” that was “hatched” by some “senior BJP and RSS leaders of Bengal”. Sarkar, in his complaint, had urged the police to carry a thorough probe in the matter and punish the offenders as per law. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedAccording to sources, allegations of financial corruption associated with LPG connection against BJP leaders have come up from Murshidabad and Sonarpur in South 24-Parganas and could go up to the tune of a few crores. The central division of Kolkata Police had constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) of nine officers to probe the complaint. The sleuths are also probing the role of some more BJP leaders in connection with the case. Some leaders in Murshidabad district have been quizzed in this connection by the SIT. A senior BJP leader, when contacted, denied the involvement of the party in the matter. “If somebody is found to be involved then he has to take his own responsibility. The party will not stand by him.” It may be mentioned that in January 2017, Sarkar had filed an RTI with Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar Polytechnic in Jhargram, alleging that BJP state president Dilip Ghosh had lied about his educational qualifications. He had alleged that the information furnished by Ghosh in his affidavit for the Assembly election regarding his educational qualifications was false.last_img read more
