Apple Watch series 4 was announced yesterday and it is definitely looking sleek and stylish. With that new curved OLED display it is looking better than ever! Can’t wait to get our hands on one. #applewatch
Today was the announcement of the brand new iPhone XR. Very similar design to the more expensive iPhone XS model, it has many of the same features for a considerably lower price. We can’t wait to get our hands on one! Which model are you going to buy??? #iphonexr or #iphonexsmax
@djiglobal has released the new Mavic and it comes in two options! The Pro and the Zoom! It’s a big choice. Personally we like the pro because of the @hasselblad camera but they are both unbelievable! Comment below which one you would buy
DELIVEROO OPENS SHARED KITCHEN
Food delivery startup @deliveroo_au opened its first shared kitchen in Paris earlier this week. Deliveroo first launched this concept of shared kitchens called Deliveroo Editions in London last year.
The company is starting with 12 kitchens in a warehouse. So far, 8 restaurants have agreed to make a deal with Deliveroo.
Is this going to be the future of the hospitality industry?
INSTAGRAM STORIES NOW HAVE MUSIC
The right music can make a boring photo or video epic, so @instagram is equipping users with a way to add popular songs to their Stories. Thanks to Facebook’s recent deals with record labels, users will be able to choose from thousands of songs from artists including @brunomars, @dualipa, and @calvinharris. The launch could make Instagram Stories more fun to post and watch in a way that copyrights won’t allow on Snapchat, while giving the app a way to compete with tween favourite @musical.ly.
THE TOP 8 CHINESE PHONES
It’s time to stop dismissing Chinese phones as knockoffs. We’ve all seen the endless parade of iPhone clones, yes, but over the past couple of years, manufacturers from China have stepped up their game in a big way, turning out devices that are innovative, attractive, and straight-up desirable in their own right. If you don’t think there’s any reason to pay attention to Chinese phones, it’s because you haven’t been paying attention.
Here is a list to look into
1 VIVO NEX S
2 OPPO FIND X
3 XIAOMI MI MIX 2S
4 HUAWEI P20 PRO
5 MEIZU 15
6 VIVO X21
7 OPPO R15 PRO
8 XIAOMI MI 8
INSTAGRAM HAS BIG NEWS “Today, we have two big announcements to share. First, @instagram is now a global community of one billion! Since our launch in 2010, we’ve watched with amazement as the community has flourished and grown. This is a major accomplishment — so from all of us at Instagram, thank you!
Second, we’re announcing our most exciting feature to date: IGTV, a new app for watching long-form, vertical video from your favourite Instagram creators, like @laurdiy posting her newest project or @kingbach sharing his latest comedy skit. While there’s a stand-alone IGTV app, you’ll also be able to watch from within the Instagram app so the entire community of one billion can use it from the very start.” #igvt#instagram#inovation
AMAZON LAUNCHES AN ALEXA SYSTEM FOR HOTELS
Alexa is coming to your hotel room. @amazon this morning is announcing a new program called Alexa for Hospitality, designed to bring its voice assistant technology to everything from chain hotels to vacation rentals. The system can be customized to include key guest information, like checkout time or pool hours; allows guests to request services like housekeeping or room service; and can be configured to control “smart” hotel room functions, like adjusting the thermostat or raising the blinds
TEACHING COMPUTERS TO PLAN FOR THE FUTURE
As humans, we’ve gotten pretty good at shaping the world around us. We can choose the molecular design of our fruits and vegetables, travel faster and farther and stave off life-threatening diseases with personalised medical care. However, what continues to elude our molding grasp is the airy notion of “time” how to see further than our present moment, and ultimately how to make the most of it. As it turns out, robots might be the ones that can answer this question.
Computer scientists from the @universitaetbonn in Germany wrote this week that they were able to design a software that could predict a sequence of events up to five minutes in the future with accuracy between 15 and 40 percent. These values might not seem like much on paper, but researcher Dr. Juergen Gall says it represents a step toward a new area of machine learning that goes beyond single-step prediction
THE NINTENDO SWITCH
What? The @nintendo Switch, the convertible console formally known as the NX. The product walks the line between a home and portable console, courtesy of a docking tablet and a pair of detachable controllers that work in a number of different configurations. It also features out-of-the-box multiplayer functionality, connecting up to eight devices via Wi-Fi.
If your looking for a new console, or some new games to play! Get your hands on the Switch, you won’t regret it!
THE ROBOT REVOLUTION IS JUST BEGINNING
@jiborobot, a so called “social robot” is just the latest example of a clear phenomenon: A new generation of exponentially more intelligent and capable robots is on the way.
Jibo says “Jibo is technology you can relate to. Advanced facial and voice recognition technology allow this personal bot to learn up to 16 different people, helping him create personalized experiences with each interaction”
PRIDE APPLE WATCH FACE
A beta version of iOS 11.3 hinted that @apple would have a special pride face for the Apple Watch.
According to code found in iOS by @9to5mac, the watch face was inspired by the rainbow flag and will move if you tap the display. 9to5Mac also found video assets within watchOS which show the bands of color moving as the watch itself is moved, and the movements should be different every time.
The new pride face will be available Monday, June 4th at 12PM PST, meaning it will likely be announced and made available during WWDC.
ROBOTS WILL DELIVER YOUR FOOD
The future of food delivery is here! @kiwicampus is a revolutionary delivery system using robots to deliver food directly from the counter at your favourite restaurants to your front door. At the moment there is still some human interaction involved in the process but the people at Kiwi Bots are always working to make it more efficient.
Stay tuned for more tech updates and let us know in the comment section what you want to know more about in the tech world.

TALKING ABOUT TESLA AUTOPILOT
Engineers inside @teslamotors wanted to add robust driver monitoring systems to the company’s cars to help make sure drivers safely use Autopilot, and Tesla even worked with suppliers on possible solutions. But the executives, @elonmusk included reportedly rejected the idea out of worry that the options might not work well enough, could be expensive, and because drivers might become annoyed by an overly nagging system. Stay connected for more updates! #tesla#autopilot #🚗
