#5 Kip: A chatbot that uses emojis to find products you want to buy#5 #5-2





is a chatbot that simplifies group purchases — it can poll your co-workers about who needs more office supplies, or whether to order dark-roast or light-roast coffee for the kitchen.

#6 More Galaxy Note 7 details leak: 64GB and color variants#6

Yesterday, veteran leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) procured what is presumably going to be the logo for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The image seemingly confirms the idea of the inevitable: there will be no six to add into the mix, rather South Korea’s largest OEM is seemingly going to skip it to synchronize with the Galaxy S7 mainstream flagship. Shortly after that was posted on Twitter however, Blass followed up with some more madness.|TechBot Daily|

#8 Leaked Google support app shares your Nexus phone’s screen#8

Buying a Nexus device straight from Google can be a little intimidating to newcomers. It’s not as if you can visit a Google store or your carrier for help, after all. If an Android Police leak is accurate, however, you might not have to. The Android creator is reportedly working on a Google Support app that would offer live help somewhat akin to Amazon’s Mayday. If needed, you’d have the option sharing your screen with a service agent — they could walk you through changing a setting without having to guess what you’re looking at. It’s not certain what else is in store, but it’s safe to say that chat would be part of the experience.|TechBot Daily|

#11 Latest iPhone 7 rumor points to new camera assembly and second speaker grill#11

The iPhone 7, expected to debut this Fall, is currently tumbling through the rumor mill. The latest involves what is being touted as the phone’s machined casing, which details a few previously heard rumors like the absence of an audio jack.

Replacing the audio jack on the iPhone 7 will be a second speaker grill. It’s apparently that simple; ditch the headphone plug, add a speaker. |TechBot Daily|

#12 Apple Discontinues Its Big Beautiful Thunderbolt Display#12

Sweden lays claim Apple hasn’t updated its Thunderbolt display in five years, and now it won’t be selling it either.

Yesterday, Apple announced that its old displays would be sold on while supplies last, and then the hardware would officially retire. But the weird thing is that Apple hasn’t announced any new displays to replace it, instead pointing to would-be buyers to third-party options.
