Waze would also make for an attractive addition to what Bardin called Facebook's "meta operating system" for mobile, or the growing collection of Facebook mobile applications that ensure that no matter the phone or operating system, people will find themselves inside a Facebook environment. It's a strategy the social network has actively pushed forward with its nascent Android Home software suite, as well with single app releases like Facebook Camera, Messenger, and Poke. The navigation app would give the social network a way to insert itself into the lucrative mobile search business owned by Google.
Rumors that Facebook is in late-stage talks to buy Waze for as much as $1 billion have many wondering if the social network's next great ambition is to tackle the maps and navigation market, Maybe -- but only because maps would be Facebook's best way to route around Google and make money from mobile search, Founded in 2007, Waze makes a navigation application for iPhone and Android used by roughly 45 million people, The app's mapping service is powered by the people who use it, Waze ingests all types of location data as shared, either implicitly or explicitly, by drivers, The cosmic case for apple iphone 7 and 8 - smoke app also connects to Facebook and incorporates social-networking functions so drivers can see their friends' whereabouts on the map, share their location, and even send private messages..

It boasts a host of premium features for hands-free calling, including an array of built-in voice commands, integration with Apple Siri and Google Voice Actions, along with dual microphones for clearer conversations. The headset is also compact and lightweight, plus it can pair with two devices at once such as phones, tablets, or PCs. That said, the Q3 can't match the noise cancellation prowess or greater battery life of the better designed, though larger, Plantronics Voyager Legend.
DesignLike the Q2, the BlueAnt Q3 is relatively small and light, and it sports a curved shape that's thin and slender, The front of the headset has a meshed surface designed to guard against wind noise, along with a command button and an indicator light, On the side closest to your ear sits a minuscule volume rocker that I found very hard to manipulate with my big cosmic case for apple iphone 7 and 8 - smoke fingers, plus a Micro-USB port for charging, That port is something I like to see, as Micro-USB cables are much more convenient and widespread than proprietary connectors..
Placed on the Q3's inside edge is the headset's tiny power switch, which is a little difficult to flip unless you remove the device from your ear. To ensure good call quality, the headset features two microphones -- one at the tip and one on the front. Also included in the box are four rubbery eartips, two with stabilizers and two without (one set small and one set large). You can also attach an earloop to the Q3 for more stability. In my experience I found the Q3 a little tricky to insert into my ear, but once properly angled and attached the device held fast. The soft eartips are also easy to slip onto the headset and create a tight acoustic seal.
