Elon Musk is starting a new company (again), and this time it is a biotechnology startup: specifically, to making a computer chip that can be embedded in a human brain.
...but I wish it had a black front, instead of the white.
In an overnight store make-over, Apple announced many new products. The biggest one that caught everyone’s attention is the Product(RED) iPhone. It is the first time Apple announced a red iPhone, and it seems to be a popular colour choice.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in Product(RED) look really good. It isn’t a “jet” finish but is a matt finish similar to the Matt Black iPhone 7, and has a darker shade of red versus other Apple Product(RED) products. It is only available in 128 GB and 256 GB models and can be purchased starting 24th March. Other than that, it is a standard iPhone 7/7 Plus.
Should you buy it? If you like red, consider it. But know that if you are coming from a black iPhone (or obsess over the darker shades), the white front won’t look as impressive. But if you want to make an impact in funding for an AIDS-free generation, definitely get it.
Apple also announced a new 9.7” 'iPad' which replaces the iPad Air 2. It has the A9 processor but it heavier and thicker. Apple also scrapped the 16 GB iPhone SE, upgraded storage options for the iPad mini 4 and announced a new app called ‘Clips’ that seems to be inspired by Snapchat.

NextEV, a Chinese startup, first debut the NIO brand last year when they announced the most powerful electric supercar, the EV9. Now, the SXSW 2107 in Austin, Texas, the company unveiled its Eve concept. Eve should debut in 2020 as a luxury vehicle in the US market.
Right away, you notice the futuristic looks of this car, but it isn’t anything surprisingly new. Faraday Future’s FF91, BMW’s i8 and (another Silicon Valley startup) Lucid’s Air carry a similar design. Eve is designed to maximize comfort; it is aimed at the commuters of 2020 who want complete autonomy of their car while being able to relax or work on the road.
The Galaxy S8 is coming real soon - the company has confirmed its launch date to be March 29th 2017. This year’s revision will be a big step forward for the Galaxy S series in terms of design, as the trailer video (below) shows. So what do we really know about the phone?

And it comes in glossy red and yellow, matte black and dark blue colours.
