Unicode's president and co-founder Mark Davis announced that 67 new emojis have been marked as "draft candidates" for 2018. This means that they will be voted on in the upcoming months with final candidates included in the Unicode 11.0 launch June 2018.

The next Apple Watch reportedly won’t need an iPhone for data

The Apple Watch is one slick piece of engineering — but it’s not without its faults. Amongst other things: if you want to leave your phone at home, your smart watch is suddenly a good bit less smart. Without an iPhone nearby, it can’t pull data — be it messages or music — over the cell networks.

Do not watch the leaked 'Game of Thrones' episode. Only regret awaits

On the Game of Thrones subreddit, one of the top comments lamented: "I wouldn't have watched [the leaked episode] if I wasn't afraid of getting spoiled elsewhere. To anybody reading who hasn't seen it: if you trust your ability to avoid spoilers elsewhere, get the fuck out of here and wait for Sunday. This episode is worth seeing in HD."

Google Is Developing Technology for Snapchat-Like Media Content

Google is developing technology to let publishers create visual-oriented media content along the lines of Snapchat’s “Discover,” according to people familiar with the situation, upping the ante in a race among tech giants to dominate news dissemination on smartphones.

LinkedIn's new app will match you up with a mentor

It's a feature that's currently being tested internally, LinkedIn tells CNET. When it arrives in the coming weeks, users will be able to list their preferences on the type of advice they're looking for and the kind of mentor they'd like to meet -- someone in a certain area or industry, for instance. From there, LinkedIn will play matchmaker and connect you with any willing mentors that meet your criteria. Mentors can also filter out potential mentees based on criteria like area, industry, and alma mater.

Photos: NASA's eclipse-chasing jets and amazing images of solar eclipses

The solar eclipse on August 21 will cross 14 states and will give millions of people a chance to see a once in a lifetime astronomical event. NASA will send up two WB-57 jets to photograph the eclipse so that a team of scientists can use the data for future research.

Miniature robots capture individual cells | ZDNet

Imagine a doctor who performs surgery so precisely that she removes individual cancerous cells one at a time. Miniature robots could make this kind of accuracy possible. We've heard about tiny robots for medical use in the past, but the technology is still rudimentary.

It looks like Spotify is finally coming to the Xbox

Of note, Spotify isn't available on any Xbox platform — whether you're talking about Xbox 360 or Xbox One — thus far, nor has Microsoft or Spotify indicated that it's coming. A Spotify representative declined to comment on the leaks, and Microsoft offered the following (very teasy) statement: "We’re always working on a number of new experiences for Xbox One owners, many times with great music playing in the background, but have nothing to announce today."

Mozilla CEO says new Firefox browser delivers 'a big bang'

His job now: Get us all to care about Firefox again. Usage of the browser has dwindled in recent years -- though Mozilla says it's now stable with more than 100 million daily users -- and competition is fiercer than ever, with Chrome leading the market. Beard is ready for the fight, readying a new version of Firefox that's due in November and that aims to persuade us that the web is better independent, not under the control of Google and a handful of other tech giants.

Google Pixel 2 might not look like other flagship phones

But harping on what it isn’t sort of detracts from what it is, or at least could be. Why be a “me too” device when the Pixel 2 could stick out with a different design? What’s more, the lack of a dual-lens camera might be disappointing for some, like ex-Googler Vic Gundotra , but today’s Pixel doesn’t need much help in the photo department as is.

Publicly, the three main hyperloop startups greeted Musk’s involvement with optimism, while also trying to demonstrate progress in their own projects. Shervin Pishevar, chairman of Hyperloop One , said Wednesday that his company completed a second phase of testing in Nevada, with a pod reaching speeds of 192 miles per hour traveling a distance of 1,433 feet. (Musk’s original plan laid out top speeds exceeding 700 miles per hour over hundreds of miles.) Pishevar said Musk’s interest bodes well for the field because it brings more attention and credibility. “It’s going to take many, many brilliant minds and commitment from many people to push it forward,” Pishevar said on Bloomberg TV. “I’m a huge believer in him.”

The Hollywood Reporter says the show “revolves around a down and out Johnny who, seeking redemption, reopens the infamous Cobra Kai dojo. It reignites his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel, who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi.” And each handles their issues through karate.

Google is reportedly building a Snapchat-style news system

"Ever since the beginning of AMP we've constantly collaborated with publishers, and are working on many new features," a Google spokeswoman told The Wall Street Journal . It makes sense that Google would want to jump into the fray, with news delivery becoming an increasingly large part of social media and user behavior. Apple has News, Facebook has Instant Articles, and Snapchat, obviously, has Discover.

Elon Musk reportedly planning to build his own Hyperloop for tunnel system

At the end of August, SpaceX will host its second Hyperloop Pod design competition, which sees teams including university research groups facing off with prototype pods of their own making on SpaceX’s test track. The next arm of the competition is focused on speed, and the stakes seem higher now that it looks like Musk will be developing his own Hyperloop tech to turn his vision of fast, efficient long-distance underground travel into reality.

Martin Shkreli is found guilty of three of eight securities fraud charges

Shkreli’s infamy hung over the more than month-long case, beginning with jury selection when the judge struggled to find potential jurors who didn’t already dislike the man known as “pharma bro.” He is best known for raising the price of Daraprim — a 62-year-old drug primarily used to treat newborns and HIV patients — from $13.50 to $750 a pill. When critics pounced, Shkreli didn’t shrink from the attention but instead relished in it by battling naysayers on Twitter. He repeatedly flashed his famous smirk while refusing to answer questions at a congressional hearing on rising drug prices.

How to use digital transformation to win budget | ZDNet

These gaps are the areas where additional spend is required, and as each directly relates to a needed capability that's linked to a digital transformation initiative, it will ultimately link to the business disruption it's meant to mitigate or create. Instead of financial gymnastics, your transformation budget is two degrees away from the strategic impact it's meant to create. Now, your budgetary debates center on which transformational objective to pursue. If your peers hesitate to fund a key capability, then it should be abundantly clear which transformational objectives become more difficult or impossible to achieve.

Survival shooter 'PUBG' adds ability to honk car horns, chaos ensues

Disney sued for tracking kids on its mobile games

While ad tracking software is commonplace in the App Store, the FTC has strict regulations about how and when internet companies can collect data about children under the age of 13. The lawsuit, filed in San Francisco District Court Thursday, says Disney has violated these rules by using ad tech that potentially exposes identifying information about the children who play its games. ( Silicon Valley fans, will be familiar with the federal rules known as COPPA, which turned Dinesh into a sweaty heap before he pawned the problem off on Hooli.)

Google's next Pixel might look a lot like the old one

Maybe Google feels it doesn't need that trendy addition to make its phone worthwhile. Still, it's bold to not minimize the bezels at least a little bit, especially considering that Google encouraged Android developers to tailor their apps for taller screens with different aspect ratios than the common 16:9. That said, this is just a leaked image, so it's possible the company won't actually use this design when it officially launches the device.

The great American eclipse: A last-minute planning guide

Find a place to stay: At this point, it's not going to be as simple as spending a few minutes online and booking a room in a town along the path of totality. If you call around enough, it might be possible to find a room thanks to a cancellation. Or maybe someone will decide last minute to cash in by putting a room up on Airbnb. But trust me, it's slim pickings right now and "event prices" and shameless gouging are in full effect. Rooms are even totally booked in many towns within short driving distance of the path of totality. According to one site, the entire state of Idaho is essentially out of vacancies for the dates.

It's tremendously exciting, especially when your virus grows strong enough to mutate on its own, as you race against the development of a cure. It's based on a real-world simulation, too.

The iPhone 8 may seriously upgrade its video skills

The rear cameras on the  iPhone 7  and  7 Plus  can record 4K video but only at 30fps. Their front cameras max out at a resolution of 1080p too. The code also includes "front" and "back" identifiers for the 4K, 60fps video support and mentions a "2017iPhone." If these hold true, videos on the next iPhone for both the front and rear facing cameras will look ultrasharp and buttery smooth.
