Amazon Prime Subscription Falls From $99 To $72 For Today Only

Amazon Prime was introduced in 2005 and originally provided customers with free two-day shipping, but has grown over the years to include a multitude of digital services including streaming movies and music. The yearly subscription fee held firm for nine years, but the added perks to the service (along with increased shipping costs and costs associated with acquiring movies/TV shows for streaming) meant that Amazon had to pass those costs along to the consumer. As a result, the online retailer raised the price of its Prime subscription service from $ 79 to $ 99 in early 2014.

Watch Senior Citizens Have A Hoot Playing Grand Theft Auto V For The First Time

Ever wondered what would happen if a group of senior citizens sat down for a spell to play Grand Theft Auto V? Wonder know more, because the folks who run the REACT channel on YouTube did exactly that, though instead of throwing their controllers down in disgust over the in-game violence and various illegal activities, they enjoyed themselves. Immensely.

Each senior citizen was given 30 minutes of play time in GTA V’s open world. They weren’t given any information other than basic controls. Other than that, it was up to them to explore the environment and play the game however they wish.

Early on, we see them each struggle to maintain control of their vehicles. We also see them follow the rules of the road, like stopping at Stop signs and waiting for red lights to turn green before crossing an intersection. However, it doesn’t take long for the mayhem to begin.

ios 8 camera app 470 75 In Depth: How to edit photos in iOS 8

Your iPhone’s camera is capable of taking amazing shots, but the fun doesn’t end there: you can apply a variety of adjustments and effects to liven up your pictures. Photos in iOS 8 has a bunch of new editing tools and holds its own against costly desktop editing apps.

The tools you’re likely to use most often are crop-and-rotate and, for portraits, Remove Red-Eye. You may also find the Auto Adjust option handy: one tap of this can improve many images.

For more control, you’ll want to get to know the new adjustment options inherited from iPhoto. In Photos in iOS 8 you can manually adjust Light (exposure, brightness and contrast) and Color, and create custom mono conversions. There’s also a range of photo filter effects to add the look of cross-processing, instant-camera shots, or "Chrome" among others. There’s everything you need to freshen up your shots or transform them completely.
