Tuesday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Pneumonia: Every year 2.1 million children die from pneumonia, largely due to the fact that it goes undiagnosed, or is diagnosed too late for antibiotics to help. Horrifying. Amazingly, a group of students have designed a stethoscope and mobile phone app which can analyse the breathing patterns of a patient and diagnose pneumonia on the spot. The stethoscope is embedded with a tiny microphone which captures the sound of the patient’s breathing and the app uploads the recording to a cloud servers and analyses it according to World Health Organization standards. Then a diagnosis and treatment plan is made. The Stethocloud, as it’s called, costs only $20 (compared with $600 for a digital stethoscope), making it the perfect apparatus for developing countries where pneumonia deaths are highest. AMAZING. There’s lots more to read here.
iPhone: Apple enthusiasts will be delighted to hear that the new iPhone 5 may be unveiled as early as August 7. The rumour mill is saying that the phone is already in production in China, and it will hit stores in a matter of weeks. A recruitment video from Apple HQ features employees pointing at the ‘new, bigger’ iPhone, and apparently some Chinese retailers are already accepting pre-orders. So there you go. I will be sticking with my old iPhone, because it works really well. Upgraders, read on here.
eBay: A car stolen 42 years ago has been recovered by its owner after he spotted it up for sale on eBay. A quick check of the vehicle ID proved it was indeed the missing Austin Healey, police were contacts and man and vehicle were reunited. Aw. Happy ending! More here.
