Rumored Changes Will Make iPhone 8 Costly
New screen technology is coming to the next-generation Apple iPhones. The Apple-focused website MacRumors says an ambient light sensor will bring Apple's "True Tone" iPad Pro technology to smartphones for the first time. Apple says the technology makes reading more comfortable in any lighting environment. But the changes will come at a much higher price.
The front of the device will also be completely glass, doing away with the top and bottom metal strips or bezels. The home button will go away and the Touch ID and camera will be built into the display. Another rumored update is wireless charging.
The price for the forward thinking iPhone 8 will set you back than a thousand dollars, according to sources. So save your pennies now..you have until fall!Source: MacRumors
Can A Coin Dropped From The Empire State Building Kill You?
Next time you walk past the Empire State Building, it's not pennies falling from the top of the building you should worry about, but ink pens. According to the Cody Cassidy and Paul Doherty, authors of the book "And Then You're Dead," a penny would cause little more than a sting.
The coin has a terminal velocity of just 25 miles per hour, plus the coin would tumble as it fell, slowing it down. A baseball being tossed over the top of building wouldn't kill a passerby, either. According to Cassidy and Doherty, the ball would hit you at 95 miles per hour, or the speed of a major league fastball. You'd have a sizable concussion, but you'd live to tell the tale. An ink pen, however, would hit you like an arrow and lead to almost certain death.

Man Sues Dunkin Donuts Over Butter...And Wins
For Jan Polanik, it's about the principle of the matter. The Massachusetts man ordered a bagel with butter at a local Dunkin Donuts, specifying he wanted real butter, not a substitute. Unfortunately for the store owners, Polanik could taste the difference and he brought his complaint to court...and won.
Polanik's lawsuit named two companies that together own more than 20 Dunkin Donuts locations and while his lawyer admits this is "a minor thing," he explains they decided to sue "to stop the practice of representing one thing and selling a different thing."
Dunkin Donuts lost and will have to pay up. The exact terms of the settlement haven't been disclosed at this point.

A Man May Get To Marry His Computer
A federal judge is refusing to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a Utah man who seeks a license to marry his computer. The judge said last week that she will allow Chris Sevier to amend his lawsuit because she thinks there are issues that may need to be addressed by the court.
Even though she plans to give the man more time, the judge says it's doubtful he'll win because he can't show any real harm from not being allowed to marry his PC. The man who filed the lawsuit says it's a protest against the legalization of same-sex marriage.
And if you’re wondering about sex with such an unusual spouse? Sevier says "Whatever a person has sex with they can bond with," he said. "This is getting into nasty facts stuff, and the truth is that’s engaging in private intimacy matters, and that's completely irrelevant for the purposes of federal court, and it's completely irrelevant for the legal matters at hand."
