Aug 12, 2018

NEW YORK – It’s another big week for earnings. Home Depot and Walmart will release their financial reports.

People are turning away from typical Instagram filters in favor of A.I. and companies are cashing in. Apps like Krome Photos offer people doctored photos for between $3 and $12, placing you anywhere in the world. Experts say the travel photos, real or not, have an increasing influence on others’ travel plans, according to Cheddar.

Get ready for “Mixtape Monday.” Apple Music is rolling out a new feature that compiles the top 25 songs your friends have been listening to. The “friends mix” will be released every Monday. Users must be connected through apple music.

Wyclef Jean has already made his mark in both music and politics and now he is getting into tech. In an interview with Cheddar, Jean stated, “I am going to develop the first hip hop guitar. This is a whole new instrument definitely software based but, with actually real strings and everything.”
