There may be some good news for iPod fans – Apple's music player may be getting a revival of sorts soon. If reports are true, Apple may be releasing new generation iPods, sporting new colors sometime in the middle of July. This tidbit was brought to the attention of Belgium-iPhone's Jerome, who saw some interesting images when he updated his iTunes software recently to version 12.2.
Upon updating his iTunes, three images or photos of iPods appeared, all of which were not available currently in the Apple Store or any retail store. The three iPods apparently came in colors that were not part of the iPod lineup and these were a light gold iPod nano, a bright pink iPod Shuffle and a dark blue iPod touch.
The images may not suggest any apparent hardware or feature changes, but at least consumers can expect more varied hues to choose from. It also indicates that Apple is looking at refreshing its iPod line. The last major update the iPod line received was when the hue "space gray" was renamed as "slate" in 2013. more >>

The smartphone which may be the Samsung Galaxy A8, has already passed through the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) and the Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center or TENAA. This raises expectations that the handset maybe coming sooner than later.
Another report on a French website NoWhereElse included a video of the device, together with details about the new phone's specifications. This also supposedly indicates it may be launched soon.
The video shows a phone that is similar in design with the newer Samsung smartphones so no drastic design change is apparent. What is notable however is how thin the device is. It is reported to be only 0.23 inch or 5.9 mm thin, making it the thinnest Samsung has ever released. Its thinness is showcased in the hands-on video. more >>

Microsoft seems to believe that their popular open world building game "Minecraft" has a huge potential in education. This belief is apparently fuelled by actual experiences of classroom teachers who have used or are using the game to foster creative thinking and help kids in class learn better through technology.
According to a report in Tech Times, it is because of these experiences that Microsoft is setting up a portal where teachers and educators can share examples of what they are doing in the classroom and how they are using the game as a tool for teaching and learning.
The Microsoft in Education team is going to launch a new forum called Minecraft in Education specifically for this purpose. Elementary school teachers who use the game to teach mathematical concepts such as area, perimeter and volume can post what kind of activities they ask their students to do. Middle school teachers who come up with a more interesting way to teach history or ancient civilizations through the game may also share how they do it. College professors who have explored how groups of students can collaborate on a Minecraft-based project may also have something interesting to post as well. more >>
