Amazon is on the cusp of owning Whole Foods, the premium grocery chain that it is purchasing for $13.7 billion dollars. The deal is expected to close next Monday. Amazon says shoppers will see “lower prices on a selection of best-selling staples across the stores.”
The New York Times is here to confirm that the premium iPhone model that will debut at the unannounced hardware event next month will be priced right around the $999 mark. That gets you a larger screened device with minimal bezel design, facial recognition security, and wireless magnetic charging capability.
Evan Blass says the date for the next big Google hardware event will be October 5th, and we’ll see the new lineup of Pixel devices that come packing an updated but as-yet-unreleased Snapdragon 836 processor. No word yet on what that improved processor will bring in terms of performance to the next generation of Pixel phones.
Plus, Owen JJ Stone joins in to discuss HTC as it mulls selling off its virtual reality business, Google’s new tool for those who search about depression, the SpaceX spacesuit is shown for the first time, artificial intelligence produced an album, and Kentucky Fried Chicken is using the Oculus Rift for training employees.
