Zore is a startup which is manufacturing the smart gun lock that helps the users to unlock their gun remotely. To unlock the gun user have to use app or PIN code. If any person tampers your weapon, it gives you an alert as long as you are in the Bluetooth range.

You can also connect through the Zore Bridge, which is Bluetooth Wi-Fi router, where you can plug-in the bridge in the power socket so that you can get the notification or the alerts directly on your phone. There are many unique features in the Zore X lock, and it contains the electro-mechanical dial which is designed to improve the security measures. You can unlock the gun even in the dark.

Yahoos’ Conversational Travel Planner Mobile App For iOS

Yahoos’ Conversational Travel Planner Mobile App

Yahoo today released a new conversational mobile app to plan your trips. The latest application Radar which is launched for iOS is available on the App store for free. This conversational travel planner app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch now helps you in planning trips, has a smart chat bot which makes it easy to interact with. Using machine learning and artificial intelligence Radar provides you additional recommendations, reviews and activities of your planned trip.

Radar then scans your account and provides you all the information about the hotels, upcoming flights and rental cars confirmation receipts.

Radar helps you to explore 16000 US cities with the recommendations included in the app like “sights to see” and “places to eat.” So, once you explore the major cities in US, you can filter the basic suggestions according to your preference through some conversational and pre-populated answers like “Adventurous” or “family friendly.”

As of now, Yahoos’ travel planner app uses data from third-party travel apps like Yelp and Tripadvisor. Conrad Wai, Yahoos Vice President of Product management said VB (Venture Beat) that the app uses additional sources from its search engine. And as it is the first version of the app, it only allows to do research – you can’t book flights or accommodations or make other reservations, or even deep-link into third-party apps. But over the time Radar will learn your preferences and will suggest you much better for the coming trips. Wai told VB, that the app is still in infancy and “Not every kink here is worked out.”

With the mobile revolution in place things are happening on the go. Wai said. “Instead of planning more beforehand as in previous generations, you’re doing it on-demand now.”  According to Venture Beat, Wai believes the app’s simplicity could drive traction: “If I can combine some of the 50 tabs I have [when researching trip planning] on-the-go, it would be great. We’re trying to aggregate, distill, and combine information for the user across the web.”

Yahoo Radar is currently available for iOS devices and there is no plan for Android devices. And the app at present is designed only for the US cities.

Ebook Buyers will Get Refund from “Apple” Price-Fixing Case suit

Ebook Buyers will Get Refund from

The 2012 antitrust case against the Apple and five major book publishers which include HarperCollins, Simon and Schuster, Hachette Book Group, Macmillan, and Penguin is settled three months back by the US Department of Justice. As per the $450 million settlement, the tech giant has started paying off the US customers who purchased e-books from Apple and other e-book retailers in between 1st April 2010 and 21st May 2012.

So, now the giant who started paying the credits as a part of the price-fixing settlement will pay all the eligible customers. Customers will receive credits from e-book sellers, or they opt out of receiving credits they will get a check. A credit of $6.93 will be paid to the customers who purchased a book that was a New York Times bestseller and a $1.57 payment for other books. Apple will send an email to the customers regarding the confirmation of funds by June 24.

“Attorneys say the process is uniquely simple for consumers — credits will be automatically sent directly to the accounts of users at major book retailers, including Amazon.com Inc., Barnes & Noble Inc., Kobo Inc. and Apple. Retailers will issue emails and put the credits in the accounts simultaneously.

If E-book buyers requested a check instead of credit, they would receive a check. If consumers received a credit during the first round of distribution of publisher settlements, and they did not opt out, they will automatically receive credit.”

Looking back into the case, the tech giant, Apple in 2010 accused of fixing the prices of e-books- it has worked with other book publishers in raising the prices of e-books to bring down the supremacy of Amazon in the e-book market. The aim of the giant was to restructure the business.

Is Apple Behind The Decision to Remove Rifle and Pistol Emoji?

While all the major publishers who have colluded with Apple settled the case earlier, Apple alone has fought for years. In 2013 the company tried to convince the court with its statement that the company’s actions were in the interest of customers and competition. But after a few series of appeals were unsuccessful, the company was found guilty in the same year.

In March, the Supreme Court finally declined to hear the case, and Apple was left to pay a $450 million settlement. According to Macrumors, $400 million will go for customers, balance $30 million towards legal fees and $20 million for the states who were also involved in the lawsuit.

Walnuts Beneficial In Reducing Risk Of Colon Cancer: Study

Walnuts Beneficial In Reducing Risk Of Colon Cancer:

A recent study has come up with the finding that consuming 28 grams of walnuts every day can reduce the chances of developing colon cancer by changing the gut bacteria.

According to one of the researchers of the University of Connecticut Health Centre in the US, Daniel Rosenberg, their findings showed that mice that consumed walnuts as 7-10% of their total calories developed fewer colon cancers. The study also showed that this effect was mostly found in the male species, which witnessed 2.3 times lesser tumours when they were given walnuts instead of a western diet.

According to Rosenberg, “There is accumulating evidence that eating walnuts may offer a variety of benefits related to health issues, like cancer. This study shows that walnuts may also act as a probiotic to make the colon healthy, which in turn offers protection against colon tumours.”

In order to understand the importance of walnuts, the team of researchers conducted tests on the fecal samples of mice and examined the communities of bacteria present in their digestive tracts. The tests came up with the finding that consuming walnuts push the gut bacteria towards an ecology that was potentially protective against cancer. The researchers have said that in order to declare walnuts as cancer-preventing agents, more tests need to be conducted on humans also.

Walnuts are considered to be extremely beneficial for the health as they help in healthy ageing and also assist in enhancing the blood cholesterol levels. They contain nutritional compounds, such as, polyunsaturated fatty acids of all the commonly eaten tree nuts, Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids and high levels of Vitamin E, which contains anti-cancer properties.
