Amazon to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion
In a move that’s set to shake up the grocery industry, Amazon has announced that it will be acquiring Whole Foods for a jaw-dropping $13.7 billion.
For Amazon, the deal makes perfect sense. Whole Foods is a well-established brand with a loyal customer base, and with Amazon’s deep pockets, the online retailer can quickly expand Whole Foods’ reach and make it even more competitive with the likes of Walmart and Kroger.
What’s more, Amazon can now use Whole Foods’ brick-and-mortar locations as a launching pad for its own grocery business. The company has been experimenting with grocery delivery for years but has so far been unable to scale it up to a nationwide service. With Whole Foods’ network of stores, Amazon can finally make grocery delivery a reality for millions of customers across the country.
Of course, not everyone is thrilled with the news. Some Whole Foods employees are worried about their jobs, as Amazon is known for its ruthless efficiency. And competitors like Walmart and Kroger are sure to ratchet up the pressure as they try to compete with the juggernaut that is Amazon.
But for now, the deal is still in the early stages, and it remains to be seen how Amazon will change Whole Foods in the months and years to come. One thing’s for sure, though: the grocery industry will never be the same.

Snapchat unveils new redesign
Snapchat recently unveiled a brand new redesign, and it’s causing a bit of a stir. The biggest change is the separation of the social from the media, with a new “Friends” page that only shows content from people you follow and a new “Discover” page for media content.
Some users are worried that this will make it harder to find content from friends, while others think that it will be a more user-friendly way to consume content. I think the redesign is a step in the right direction for Snapchat.
The app has always been a bit confusing to use, with a mix of social and media content jumbled together. This new redesign makes it much clearer what you’re supposed to do on Snapchat. Plus, I think the friend’s page will be more user-friendly than the current design, which can be a bit overwhelming.
Overall, I think the redesign is a good move for Snapchat. It will make the app easier to use and help people better understand what it’s for.
Microsoft to acquire GitHub
One of the biggest tech news stories this week was Microsoft’s announcement that they have reached an agreement to acquire GitHub. GitHub is a popular code hosting platform that is used by many developers and companies, and Microsoft’s acquisition is a big move in the world of software development.
This acquisition is also a significant move for Microsoft, as they have been working to increase their presence in the open-source world. GitHub will help Microsoft with this goal, as it is a popular destination for developers who work on open-source projects. Microsoft has been trying to make itself more appealing to developers in recent years, and this acquisition is likely to help them with that goal.
Microsoft is not the only company that is interested in GitHub, as Google has also been rumored to be interested in acquiring the company. However, Microsoft’s offer was reportedly higher, and GitHub’s board of directors has unanimously approved the acquisition.
The deal is not yet finalized, but it is expected to close by the end of the year. Once the deal is complete, GitHub will become a part of Microsoft’s Intelligent Cloud division.
What do you think of Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub? Let us know in the comments.

Tinder tests new feature for college students
This week, Tinder released a new feature specifically for college students. The feature allows students to swipe through other students at their school who are also using the app. Tinder says that this new feature is meant to make it easier for college students to meet new people on campus.
With the new feature, students can sign up for Tinder using their college email address. Once they’ve signed up, they’ll be able to see other students who are also using the app. Tinder says that this feature is meant to make it easier for students to find other people to connect with on campus.
There are a few things to keep in mind with the new feature. First, it’s only available to students who have a .eddo email address. Second, the feature is only available to students who are 18 years old or older. Tinder says that it plans to roll out the feature to more schools in the future.
The new feature comes as Tinder is facing increased competition from other dating apps. In recent months, Tinder has been overshadowed by apps like Bumble and Hinge, which have been gaining in popularity. Tinder is still the most popular dating app, but it’s clear that it’s starting to lose some of its market share.
One of the biggest problems that Tinder has been facing is that it’s become known as a hookup app. This is due in part to the fact that it’s so easy to use and because it’s so popular with young people. College students are especially likely to use Tinder for hookups, which has led some to call it a “hookup app.” With the new feature, Tinder is hoping to change its image and become known as a more serious dating app. The app has been adding new features in recent months that are designed to appeal to users who are looking for more than just a hookup. For example, Tinder has added a feature that allows users to see who has liked them before they’ve matched. It’s too early to say
Whether the new feature will be successful in attracting more college students to Tinder. However, it’s clear that Tinder is feeling the pressure from its competitors and is trying to adapt. Tinder’s new feature may not be enough to make it the top dating app again, but it’s a step in the right direction.
The top tech news this week includes new releases from Apple, Google, and Microsoft. Google’s new Pixel phone and Microsoft’s new Surface tablet both received high marks from reviewers. Apple’s new iPhone 7 is also getting positive reviews, although some people are disappointed that it doesn’t have a headphone jack.
