Mark Zuckerberg just signed the death warrant for the smartphone

Facebook also launched a virtual world, called Facebook Spaces, created to let users of its Oculus Rift VR headset hang out with their friends wherever they might be.

"We see the beginning of a new platform", Zuckerberg said. (Sorry, F8 has nothing to do with "Fate of the Furious.") Zuckerberg will likely talk about artificial intelligence, chatbots and other gee-whiz topics.

Facebook Spaces is an app for the Facebook-owned Oculus VR goggles.

Facebook is having the event third straight year and the last year saw its CEO providing a road-map for the next decade.

Small plane crashes next to Lisbon-area supermarket; 5 dead
It fell onto a lorry in the vehicle park below, which was delivering produce to the supermarket, killing the driver. The plane came down near the Lidl Supermarket in Tires near the coastal town of Cascais 20 miles west of Lisbon .

The announcements will cover a variety of Facebook products and services, from the Facebook app and Messenger, to the company's other interests - like virtual reality. Mark Zuckerberg took to the F8 stage to explain that phone camera's are the "primitive versions" of the glasses or contact lens AR experiences many hope to eventually achieve.

Messenger will also let people chat with outside businesses as a group. In January, the company began testing Delegated Account Recovery, a tool that lets you use your Facebook account to log in to another app if you forgot your password.

Which makes sense, assuming you're into the idea of wearing a computer on your face (and you're okay with Facebook intermediating everything you see and hear, glitches and all). Facebook Spaces launches in beta for Oculus Rift and Touch today, which can be download it now from the Oculus Store. However, the social network is now trying to integrate the experience into our phones.

The Platform's main focus is on two new tools. Facebook has relocated from smaller conference quarters in San Francisco to the convention center in San Jose, making room for about 4,000 attendees, almost double from past year, and a technological Disneyland of splashy interactive demos and displays.

Detroit Police Officer Shot in Head, Another Wounded in Shooting
The officer officer was struck in the face and is now listed in critical condition at Sinai Grace Hospital. She didn't know the family at the home and said they hadn't been there long. "We are optimistic", he said.

So it doesn't exactly register as a surprise that during his F8 presentation on Tuesday, an uncharacteristically animated Zuckerberg went so far as to gratuitously borrow language from Snapchat, which in September announced its first hardware product-Spectacles-and rebranded itself as a camera company. In March, for instance, it introduced Facebook 360 for Gear VR.

According to the Securities and Exchange Commission filing released by Facebook, Zuckerberg had about 9.6 million fewer shares at the end of March, compared to the a year ago.

While the new tools and features are impressive, analyst Jan Dawson of Jackdaw Research cautioned that that "most of them won't be in users' hands anytime soon". "And providing communication to people who don't have that is a way to do it".

Filing an Extension? Don't Forget to Pay IRS
Thompson said. "So while filing for an extension is a simple process, filing your return by the original due date is advised". Each return reflects tax paid by one or more individuals, so it's unclear how many people paid penalties for lacking coverage.
