Amazon drive-thru grocery store project tipped

Amazon drive-thru grocery store project tipped

It's no secret that Amazon has grocery-based ambitions, with its AmazonFresh and Amazon Pantry services both being options (the former of the two has limited availability, however). That's not the end of its efforts, however, at least if recently surfaced sources are any indication. Amazon is reportedly looking into a drive thru grocery store service in which customers could simply pull up in their car and have their groceries put in the back, no getting out and shopping necessary.

Instagram for Android has a new edit screen

Instagram for Android has a new edit screen

If you use Instagram on Android, you may be seeing a new edit screen that speeds up the sharing process (and if you're not, try updating the app - some users have had luck doing this). Some users are seeing a new so-called quick edit screen that reduces the editing and sharing process to a single screen. The screen allows those who want the more expansive process to use it, but for everyone else, filtering is reduced to swiping right and left.

Moto G 2015: latest leak details packaging and specs

It is anticipated Motorola will be officially introducing the third-generation model of its Moto G smartphone tomorrow, but the odds are high we won't be surprised by what we hear.

Lenovo S21e-20 Review – an ultrabook with a crazy bezel

At one time netbooks were all the rage, and though that trend has simmered down, the options for inexpensive and relatively low powered machines are as expansive as ever. Chromebooks largely fill the void left behind by netbooks, but if Chrome OS isn't your thing, some PC makers are still releasing small laptops loaded with Windows, and Lenovo is one of them. The latest among the maker's small netbook-like Windows offerings is the Lenovo S21e, a laptop with a small display and price tag, and very big bezel. Does it work as well as its larger siblings? Read our review to find out.

GoFish Cam is an action camera for your fishing pole

You can post a picture of your big catch online, but showing the catch as it took place -- that is, from the moment the fish started eyeing your hook -- isn't as simple.

The camera is pill shaped and attached to the fishing line in such a way that the lens points toward the fishing hook, ensuring every moment is recorded.

IBM’s Watson will analyze your personality

IBM’s supercomputer Watson is trying its hand at discerning personalities, and it bases its guesses on text samples. A demonstration of the technology allows anyone to copy in their own snippet of text and get an assessment based on it — whether your own will prove accurate is another matter. This is the latest example of computers learning to predict and analyze; we saw a different example yesterday via a neural network that is learning to write.

Man flies through tiny mountain crevasse wearing wingsuit

This month GoPro published a video of what it says may have been the most technical and difficult BASE jump ever successfully pulled off. The video shows a man who dons a wingsuit and uses it to soar down a mountain in the same manner as a superhero, flying squirrel, or sugar glider, only with an extra dose of technical precision -- he navigates it through a small crevasse in a rock formation in the mountains, a stunt you'd otherwise only see in the movies.

Walmart’s new smart infant car seat combats heat stroke deaths

Walmart’s new smart infant car seat combats heat stroke deaths

Walmart has decided to tackle the very tragic problem of infant heat stroke deaths that result when a baby is forgotten in the car. Unfortunately, the summer months bring high heat in many states and that heat results in cars that get very, very hot in a short period of time. Routine changes, quiet naps and more have resulted in drivers forgetting they have a child in the back seat, and, tragically, this is often a fatal mistake. Walmart's newly developed car seat combats this using a mixture of sensors, wireless technology, and an audible alarm.
