It's been a slightly quieter week when it comes to Glastonbury festival news this week but there's still been plenty for fans to talk about, discuss and hope for. From last weekend's awful news about an icon of rock 'n' roll passing away, to early weather predictions, scheduling clashes possibly ruling legends out of the running and calls for Lady Gaga to light up the Pyramid Stage - there's still lots to digest. If you missed last week's news about Ed Sheeran, the death of a circus...

If you wanted to invoke American farming with colour, which colours would you pick? The chances are they would be the familiar green and yellow of a John Deere tractor. It's a name that has been synonymous with US agriculture since the 1830s, when the blacksmith whose name appears on the tractors produced his first steel plough blade. The words American icon are thrown around for many things, but in the case of John Deere there are few modern brands with as much history to back up their claim to it. A trip across the prairies then is to drive past Deere products in use from most of the last century. They will still supply parts for machines they made before WW2, and farmers will remain loyal to the brand throughout their lives. Well... That used to be the case. In recent years a new Deere has had all its parts locked down by DRM, such that all maintenance tasks on the tractors must be performed by Deere mechanics with the appropriate software.

The best bit of the P10 Plus camera, though, is found on the camera taskbar at the top. Alongside the flash is an aperture icon, which is where the double camera comes into its own. Tapping this turns on Wide Aperture mode, which lets you take very cool SLR-like photos. Even better, when you take a photo in this mode, you can refocus it later by opening it in the native gallery and tapping the part youd like to focus on. Not overly useful (or new), but very cool. Theres also a Portrait mode, which is like beauty mode but for the main camera, as well as Artistic mode in the selfie cam which, again, gives an SLR-ish image by blurring the scenery behind your head. Were not huge fans, but lots of people will think it looks expensive and amazing, so it was a good thing to include. Low light performance on the main cameras is very good, even without the assistance of flash or Night Shot mode.

Instagram is upping user security with the option of two-factor authentication. The security feature, which has already been adopted by many technology and social media companies, has been a long time in coming for the popular Facebook-owned photo-sharing app. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to your Instagram account, making it more difficult for hackers to access usersaccounts because it requires more than a password. If you choose to use the tool, you will need to enter a special code each time you log in. To get two-factor authentication set up, simply tap the gear icon on your profile and choose the new option. Instagram is also toning down your Instagram feed by blurring photos that do not violate its rules but are deemed sensitive. The move was a bid to foster a safe environment for its users and builds on its community guidelines .

Amy, whose real name is Suhaimi Abdul Rahman, will be taking to the catwalk at the Asia Islamic Fashion Week event at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. “This will not be my first time walking the runway,” says Amy who hails from Johor Baru.

But this event will be different for him as it will be the first time Amy will be showcasing his own label and wearing his own designs. Four years ago, the singer took his first steps into the fashion world after noticing that vendors at the local night markets were selling replicas of the high songkoks that he used to wear in his concerts, and calling them Amy Search Songkok.

InstaSafety Also in the vein of a protected browsing experience, Instagram is also adding a must-have security feature for any app worth its salt: two-factor authentication.

Two-factor authentication can be accessed on Instagram's options menu, found on your profile page behind a gear-shaped icon. While hiding sensitive images helps Instagram users from stumbling upon something they might rather not see, we argue that this feature goes a step further in protecting folks from the less-than-savory realities of the Internet.

Android O is actually here! After diving into Google's blog post and downloading an Android O image , we fired up our developer tools and loaded the new version of Android onto a sacrificial device. There are a few new interesting features, lots of UI tweaks, and plenty of odd bugs and unfinished areas. Let's dive in. Notifications: Snooze, channels, and a terrible new ambient mode My favourite new feature in Android O is the ability to do system-wide notification snoozing. If you don't want to deal with a notification right now, just pull it to the side a bit, which will unveil a new "clock" icon. Tap it, and the notification will be automatically snoozed for 15 minutes. You can tap on the drop-down menu to increase the time to 30 minutes or an hour. This is really handy, but I'd like to be able to customise the times here. I'm sure some people would like a few hours, or maybe a "tomorrow" option. A "type in your time" option would be fine, too.

One small change you will notice in Android O is the ability to manually type the date and time when selecting a time. When, several versions of Android ago, Google changed the date and time picker from text-based to a monthly calendar and rolling clock, things did indeed look better and more interactive. However, that made precise minute selection more tedious and annoyed people who prefer text entry to fancy graphics and animations. In Android O, the time picker (in Calendar, Clock, etc) gets one small added icon at the bottom left: a keyboard.
