Apple Loop: New iPhone 8 Leaks, How To Make A Transparent iPhone, Apple's Expensive Obsession

Taking a look back at another week of news from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop includes iPhone 8 battery and design leaks, making the iPhone 7S cheaper, Apple’s wireless charging standard, how to make a transparent iPhone, the dream of Apple TV, repairing your own hardware, details on WWDC and a look at the door handles in Apple’s new HQ.

Apple Loop is here to remind you of a few of the very many discussions that have happened around Apple over the last seven days (and you can read our weekly digest of Android news here on Forbes).

Batteries, Volumes And The iPhone 8

Of course Apple will mention the tenth-anniversary of the iPhone when this year’s flagship handset is announced, especially with the new features heralding some sort of "reinvention" of the smartphone. The presumptively named iPhone 8 has a number of features  newto Apple, and FORBES contributor Gordon Kelly looks at the relationship between the new compact design and the batteries inside the upcoming smartphone:

Bachelor on the Cheap: Beef Pot Pie

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

Beef Pot PieBachelor food, go-to food when you don't really feel like cooking, don't feel like getting into the vehicle and driving to a restaurant......  So what do you do?  Pull out a Banquet pot pie.

Really?  Do you have to?  Heck no!  I mean, don't get me wrong, those things are OK in a pinch.  But c'mon, it's not like they've got a huge YUM factor going for them.  They're, 'eh'....   You eat one, you're not hungry anymore, that's pretty much it.

Let me clue you in on something you can make easy peasy, something VERY affordable, something WAY better than a Banquet brand pot pie......

All you need is a can of Campbell's Vegetable Beef Soup and a container of Pillsbury Cresent Rolls.

In 20 minutes, you've got DELICIOUS Beef Pot Pie!

Testimonials

I highly recommend Keith Simmonds/Floor Frog. Keith installed new cork flooring throughout our condo, and it is clear that he takes pride in his work. He is exceptionally detailed and does everything he can to keep the work area clean and minimize dust. The floor of our condo was slightly uneven in places, and Keith took the time to level it with precision. He also went above and beyond by guiding us through the process, answering many questions in a timely and patient manner, recommending the best place to purchase underlayment, delivering the flooring from the warehouse, putting the baseboards back on with a great caulk job, and coming in under budget. Thanks, Keith! You’re great! ~ Jamie, Iowa City

We would hire Keith Simmonds from Floor Frog again. It is always refreshing to work with someone who enjoys what they are doing and has devoted time and energy to perfecting their skills. We hired Keith to take up approximately 1100 square feet of carpet and vinyl and put down engineered hardwood. The apartment is shaped like a piece of pie so NOT an easy project. Beautiful results - flooring is tucked neatly under beautiful baseboards we didn't want to disturb. His superior craftsmanship was appreciated, along with his guidance in selecting materials, superior project management, attention to detail, and excellent pricing. He is a skilled craftsman who can be trusted to bring a project in on time and on budget. He was respectful and so very nice to work with. We would definitely hire him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to a friend. Keith under-promised and over-delivered -- that's a great combination.  ~ 4till, Cedar Rapids

Grilling on a budget

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

Here's a great recipe if you're on a tight grocery budget, costing less than $10 to prepare.  

And tight budget or not, this is just a flat out great grilled hot dog recipe!

Mike's HamDawgs
Stuffed hot dawgs

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup finely chopped cooked ham or luncheon meat
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 package of all beef hot dogs
  • 8 to 10 slices of bacon
  • Your favorite BBQ sauce
  • Louisiana Hot Sauce (optional)

Mike's HamDawgsDirections:

Mix the first six or seven ingredients.  Slit the hot dogs, cutting them almost end-to-end and about ¾ the way through.  Stuff with the ham mixture.  Wrap the stuffed hot dogs with bacon and secure with tooth picks on each end.  Grill over hot coals, giving them ¼ turns and brushing them with BBQ sauce (and optional BBQ/Louisiana Hot Sauce blend) until the bacon is crisp.  Serve in toasted garlic buttered hot dog buns.

Unilever Has Rejected a $143 Billion Merger Bid From Kraft Heinz | Fortune.com

Kraft Heinz Co (khc, +0.66%) has proposed a $143 billion offer with Unilever in what would be one of the biggest deals ever, but the Anglo-Dutch consumer goods company has declined.

A deal with Unilever, which had a market value of $125 billion before its shares spiked, would add Hellmann's mayonnaise, Ben & Jerry's ice cream and Knorr soups to a portfolio that includes Heinz ketchup and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.

"Kraft confirms that it has made a comprehensive proposal to Unilever about combining the two groups to create a leading consumer goods company with a mission of long-term growth and sustainable living," Kraft said in a statement.

Unilever said the offer of $50 a share, made up of $30.23 in cash and the rest in stock, "fundamentally undervalues" it.
