GoPro’s new 360-degree camera will let you shoot first and pick images later

  GoPro’s new 360-degree camera will let you shoot first and pick images later <p>Available at the “end of 2017”</p>GoPro didn’t share any further specs or pricing information, saying only that the camera “will see a limited commercial release by the end of 2017.” In fact, Fusion will be available this summer, but only to “brands, agencies, content professionals” as part of a pilot program. That’s potentially frustrating, even if it’s kind of how GoPro typically treats its camera releases. The company has always sent new cameras to athletes and professionals before they’re released — they just typically don’t tell anyone.

The CRTC ruled that Internet providers must treat all web traffic equally and cannot prioritize some content, like a specific video streaming service, which could give an unfair advantage or disadvantage to some content providers and consumers.

CRTC Chairman Jean-Pierre Blais said in a statement that rather than offering subscribers selected content at different data usage prices, Internet service providers should offer more data at lower prices and give consumers the ability to choose what content they want to consume.

The decision comes following hearings held last fall into the practice, known as differential pricing, that stemmed from a complaint about Quebecor-owned Videotron over the way it bills customers for the data they use.

Videotron launched an unlimited music streaming service in August 2015 that allowed its customers to stream music from specific third-party services without it counting against their monthly data cap.

The CRTC ruled that Videotron must ensure this service complies with the new regulations within 90 days.
