[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear 360 (2017) is $115 on Amazon (50% off MSRP) or $113 from third-party sellers

Phones these days have replaced many of the most commonly used portable appliances from the late 20th century.

Fortunately, Samsung's Gear 360 camera (the 2017 edition) is on sale on Amazon right now for just $115.00, which is half-off its current price on Samsung.com.

A minor update just rolled out that restores this simple alternative.

Android P feature spotlight: Google confirms idle apps can't access microphone or camera

Last month, a series of AOSP commits revealed that the next release of Android would block apps in the background from using the camera or microphone. It's a bit surprising that this feature didn't already exist, but recent privacy concerns (like the theory about Facebook listening to users) may have pushed Google to implement it.

As expected, the feature is officially part of Android P; idle applications can no longer access the microphone, camera, or device sensors.
