Four picks into this year’s draft haul, the Browns have finally landed a quarterback.

Cleveland selected Notre Dame star DeShone Kizer with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Kizer is the first quarterback selected in the second round by the Browns in the common draft era (since 1967).

At nearly 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, Kizer offers prototypical size as well as the arm talent to make every NFL throw. Many scouts believe he’s the most physically gifted quarterback in this year’s draft class.

That said, he comes with questions about his accuracy, field vision, mechanics and decision making under pressure. He slumped severely enough against Stanford last season to earn a first-half benching.

“He is the classic boom or bust,” one AFC evaluator told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “In terms of arm strength, athleticism, talent, intelligence, he’s the highest-end guy. At the same time, he’s also the one with the most flaws.”

The NBA gets high-tech with VR, drones and futuristic dreams

This past weekend, something kind of incredible happened; basketball aficionados from across the globe were able to don high-tech goggles to live-stream stereoscopic virtual reality of a highly paid athlete receiving a bounce pass from a custom-designed drone to perform a highly technical slam dunk.

This is the NBA in 2017.

New technologies have always played a major role in how sports organizations attract new audiences and build closer ties between players and fans. This past weekend, the NBA’s tech initiatives were on full display in New Orleans at the sight of the NBA All-Star game.

The new technologies powering efforts on the floor were awesome and plentiful but when I arrived I was interested about the combination of using new tech to enable crazy experiences on the court while also drawing on technologies that allow viewers at home to get closer than ever to the action.

This all centered around a dunk. The NBA Slam Dunk Contest defending-champ, 21-year-old Orlando Magic player Aaron Gordon, was set to perform one of the craziest dunks yet, a high-flying drone-assisted shot that relied on the most intimate of communications between man and machine.

Marissa Mayer will walk away from Yahoo with $186 million

Mayer, who has failed to turn the Internet pioneer around in five years as CEO, is expected to step aside when Verizon completes its $4.5 billion purchase of Yahoo.

 She has a total of 4.5 million shares of Yahoo stock and options, plus restricted stock that will vest when the Verizon deal goes through, according to a filing on Monday. Yahoo said last week it expected the deal to close in June.

Once Mayer pays to exercise her options, she’ll be left with $186 million, based on Yahoo (YHOO, Tech30) stock’s closing price of $48.15 a share on Monday.

She will also get a $3 million golden parachute — cash severance that accompanies the sale of the company. The companies announced the sale in July 2016.

Here’s what future Las Vegas might look like

Las Vegas represents possibility, optimism and temptation. It’s a city with lights running through its veins and creativity pumping in its heart. That said, it’s really no surprise that Vegas also happens to be a city that is fully embracing technology. 

Below, we explore what some of today’s most exciting technologies may mean for the next ten years of this larger-than-life slice of America.

Vegas VR 

A high-tech mindset isn’t new for Vegas: The city has long played host to the annual CES event, a launch pad for some of the world’s most innovative and disruptive technologies. And virtual reality, one of the hottest buzzwords in the tech industry, has been hogging the spotlight of CES’ stages for the past several years.

The Vegas VR app and 360 video tours on GeoVegas are proof positive that Vegas and VR are a match made in virtual heaven, but there are many more immersive possibilities for the future. Think: fully virtual casinos where you can choose your own adventure, scenery and companions; entire concerts experienced front-row from the comfort of your hotel suite; and virtual reality restaurants that enable you to dine wherever in the world you desire.

The latest futuristic sex doll is teaching men all the wrong things about consent

Leave a comment

.

If you don’t touch or pay attention to Samantha, she will eventually give up. Touch her on the hip, and she’ll tell you she’s always there for you. Touch her on the shoulder, and she’ll say “I’m yours.” Touch her mouth or her chest and she might switch from “romantic” to “sexy” mode.

Samantha is a sex robot that needs to be seduced. “There’s a certain amount of things that you need to do before she’s actually ready for sex, basically,” engineer Sergi Santos said about his creation. But the gamification of sexy hardware designed in a woman’s likeness is not romance — in fact, it downplays the idea of consent. After all, Samantha is programmed to say yes.
