“Coffee chain giant Starbucks has hopped on an internet craze for “unicorn food” by launching a limited edition iced drink in the US, Mexico and Canada. It says its Unicorn Frappuccino – a brightly-coloured confection of ice, mango syrup, “creme” and “sour blue drizzle” – changes colour when mixed. Some social media users said they wanted to try the drink, while others didn’t seem so keen. And there were queries on Twitter about the food dyes used in the drink.”

“The Galaxy Note 8 could be getting a dual camera system similar to the iPhone 7 Plus or LG G6, per an investor note obtained by 9to5Google from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo apparently says that the Note 8’s camera will be “the most important upgrade” in the upcoming smartphone, with 3x optical zoom, optical image stabilization on both lenses, and the ability to take both 12-megapixel wide angle and 13-megapixel telephoto shots. Kuo also claims the “Note 8’s dual-camera will be much better than that of iPhone 7 Plus and likely match that of OLED iPhone,” referring to a top-of-the-line model he expects Apple to introduce later this year.”

“Verily, formerly Google’s life sciences arm, is launching today a four-year study called Project Baseline to find out why people transition from being generally healthy to getting sick. The Silicon Valley-based company is working with its partners, Duke University and Stanford Medicine, to enroll 10,000 participants from diverse backgrounds at half a dozen study sites in California and North Carolina. The researchers are recruiting some people in good health, and others who are at high risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease, and outfitting them with sophisticated health trackers and sequencing their genomes, among other things. The goal for the study, said Verily’s chief medical officer Jessica Mega, is to “create a map of human health.”


“Reliable iPhone leaker Sonny Dickson just shared new design schematics for the upcoming iPhone. The most interesting thing is that the leak clearly shows a spot on the rear of the device for the Touch ID sensor. Rumor has it that Apple is going to release three new devices in September — upgraded versions of the iPhone 7 with better specs, and a brand new phone with a new form factor. This leak shows this top-of-the-line phone. It features two cameras on the back. This time, they could be oriented vertically instead of horizontally. This isn’t really groundbreaking.”
