the surprisingly lackluster rise of vr porn


"vr is the biggest niche since milf," naughty america chief information officer ian paul said. "if you want to write it off as just a niche, and it arguably still is a niche, it's a huge niche. it's a niche that's on fire. so it's a force to be reckoned with, and it needs to be watched very very carefully, because it can easily go from being the biggest niche to the mainstream, to the dominant force in the industry, just like that."to hear darling and paul talk about it, the business of vr has come a long way since my gastrointestinal odyssey. according to pornhub, its collection of 2,600-plus vr videos (up from 30 in 2016) pulls in 500,000 views daily. with viewership and production apparently on the up-and-up, i assumed the user experience had kept pace. so i dusted off my gear v...

wrc 6 review (ps4) - playstation lifestyle


mindtwang|1h ago|review|1|psls: "wrc 6 offers up a decent alternative to dirt rally, specifically for fans that want a more forgiving take on the sport of rally racing, but there’s still a lot of room to improve. if the series really wants to be the rally game that most players flock to, it’ll need to offer up better tutorials, and teach players how to understand their co-driver. on top of that, there’s a general lack of polish (from technical issues to visual fidelity) that keeps the game a solid notch below the competition in its own racing niche. there’s still some fun to be had, but there’s far better racers on playstation 4." ps4wrc 6playstationlifestyle.netread full story >>playstationlifestyle.net

history - why doesn't anyone write great symphonies any more?


all musical forms, from gregorian chant to hip hop, are most closely associated with a particular time and place, they go in and out of popularity. older forms become a niche product, created and appreciated by a select few, not the masses.the problem with symphonies is that they require a full orchestra, and thus are one of the most expensive musical forms possible. so they cannot survive as a niche production. i'm sure people still write them, but it isn't financially worth it to produce them if only a few people show up to see them. paul mccartney wrote a symphony recently --he's wealthy enough to self-finance an orchestra, and famous enough to fill seats --but it wasn't considered "great." (you can hear it here if you are interested.)however, as phillip suggested, new symphonic-s...

suvidha providers are adding niche products & services before gst roll out, tech


as the july 1 deadline for the goods and services tax (gst) rollout draws closer, companies working to be service-providers are readying a plethora of value-add niche products and services to help potential clients make the transition to the new regime.the competition between these companies is intensifying as india gets ready for the electronic upload of more than 2 billion invoices onto the gst network (gstn). a result of this competition is that it would give taxpayers many choices apart from the main government portal, and ease the compliance process.explaining how this works, pramod varma, advisor to gstn, says: “the gstn, the main agency in charge of the technological infrastructure for gst, is a big shift from the (existing) government (model of) building out a monolithic portal f..

the key to a family farming renaissance? niche crops.


in the pastoral uplands of northern carroll county, md., farmers used to raise cattle, corn and soybeans — a model that has long been under economic assault by agricultural industrialization.stanton gill says the small farm can secure its future by adopting a growing plan opposite to the aims of the big guys. vast acreages of grain, a practice called monoculture, define much of midwestern farmland, but gill prefers to grow a diversity of fruits and vegetables. this harks back to the face of the family farm in previous centuries, except gill has brought a contemporary twist: he grows novel and unusual varieties destined to find a niche in the rich, urban-centric local food movement.his property, falcon ridge farm, lies between westminster and the mason-dixon line and is not just a figurat..

santa monica, ca — july 14, 2017 — as the auto industry tries to adjust to selling cars in a declining market, the popularity of suvs is giving niche luxury brands a boost, according to the latest luxury market report from edmunds. bmw, mercedes-benz and lexus all lost market share during the first half of 2017 compared to the first half of last year, while brands such as audi, infiniti and jaguar gained. through the end of may, jaguar's sales were up 115 percent, infiniti's sales were up 24 percent, and both audi and lincoln were up 6 percent. "when the legacy luxury brands first began offering affordable smaller vehicles, it was seen as a risk to their brand image, but they were quickly rewarded with new customers and growing sales," said edmunds executive director of industry an...

new york: wal-mart stores, the 800-pound gorilla of retail, is running hard to catch up in an increasingly crucial segment where it is neither the biggest nor the best: e-commerce. the company, founded in 1962 by sam walton, has been gobbling up smaller and niche players in e-commerce in an effort to reach online shopping market leader amazon. whether those efforts are paying off will be a focal point when wal-mart stores reports quarterly earnings on thursday. a bit more than half of all funds spent online in the united states now goes to amazon, according to the bank macquarie. part of amazon's success stems from its breadth of offerings, which includes the kindle that people use for reading and the prime service that broadcasts popular television shows, said krista fabregas, e-commerce.
