WWDC: Apple launches HomePod, a Siri speaker 'to reinvent home music'

The Independent

Apple has officially launched HomePod, a Siri-powered talking music system for the home. It looks unusual, like a cross between Google Home and the Mac Pro, all wrapped up in mesh. Apple says it has "the power to rock the house", thanks to its use of seven different tweeters, and the huge bass woofer that sits right in the middle. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph. The giant human-like robot bears a striking resemblance to the military robots starring in the movie'Avatar' and is claimed as a world first by its creators from a South Korean robotic company Waseda University's saxophonist robot WAS-5, developed by professor Atsuo Takanishi and Kaptain Rock playing one string light saber guitar perform jam session A man looks at an exhibit entitled'Mimus' a giant industrial robot which has been reprogrammed to interact with humans during a photocall at the new Design Museum in South Kensington, London Electrification Guru Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart talks about the electric Jaguar I-PACE concept SUV before it was unveiled before the Los Angeles Auto Show in Los Angeles, California, U.S The Jaguar I-PACE Concept car is the start of a new era for Jaguar.

Roaming charges are finally being killed off, after the EU forced phone companies to stop hitting people with massive, shock bills. But customers have been warned that they might still have to pay more than they expect and should continue to be vigilant. The roaming charges will come to an end after 15 June. That will mean that people in the UK can take their normal contract – with all its free calls, texts and data – anywhere in the EU, for no extra cost.

Google Glass: Shock update hints at return from the dead

The Independent

A new update for Google Glass has just rolled out, to the surprise of the entire technology community. The futuristic gadget failed to take off because people considered it to be ugly, creepy and overly expensive, and we all believed Google had killed it off for good after it halted sales back in 2015.
