Hey y’all technology enthusiasts, Apple has updated its iPad line. The new developments happen alongside launching of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which are red in colour. This is in partnership with the Product Red whose aim is to fight HIV/AIDS. Product Red was started by former U2 star Bono, and it’s aim, as stated above, is to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS, Tuberclosis and Malaria. Hence, some of the proceeds from the Red IPhones will go towards Product Red.
The phones that are officially going on sale this Friday have 32GB and 128GB configurations, though they will still go for the initial prices of $379 to $559. Apple CEO Tim Cook said, “Since we began working with (Red) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products. The introduction of this special edition iPhone in a gorgeous red finish is our biggest offering to date in celebration of our partnership with (Red), and we can’t wait to get it into customers’ hands.”
Last year so many cases of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones catching fire and exploding reported. The phones were immediately scrubbed off the market and though the manufacturers have not released their findings yet, there might be some good news.
A lithium-ion battery containing a fire-extinguishing material has been designed. The material is released when the battery gets too hot. Flame retardant triphenyl phosphate (TPP) is embedded in a shell within the Lithium battery and when the battery gets too hot, the shell melts releasing it. This was done by the Stanford University research team which also carried tests and found out that the fires were extinguished in 0.4 seconds.

Messaging app firm Snapchat on Friday introduced its first hardware product Spectacles that is fitted with an in-built camera.
The sunglasses enable a user to record 10-second video clips which can then be uploaded directly to the Snapchat app via Bluetooth or Wi-fi.
The specs have a button mounted on the frames which when pressed record a video clip while a ring of tiny lights lets people know that you are recording.
The cameras have a 115-degree lens which the firm says more closely resembles a human being’s natural field of view.
The company which re-branded to Snap Inc. said that the rechargeable sunglasses will go on sale later this year at a price of $130 which is roughly Kshs. 13,000.
WhatsApp is the world’s most popular mobile chat app. It has revolutionized the way the word communicates. WhatsApp has made it very easy to transfer text messages, photos, videos and audio files from one mobile phone to another. People all over the world are using WhatsApp in a large number of languages. But the language of those smiley faces is all the same world over.
Many of these WhatsApp symbols are confusing. Most people don’t know the meaning of many WhatsApp icons or symbols. While there are some standards ones (like smile, sad, laugh, cry etc.); many other symbols seem to have no apparent meaning.
It is so important to know what each of these emojis mean, so that next time you do not send your mum that purple heart emoji-did you know it stands for sexual attraction, cringe! Do not make such mistakes ever again.
We got you covered, here is a list of each emoji and their true meanings.
