‘The internet retailer has opened a grocery store in which shoppers only have to
scan their smartphone upon entry, with purchases automatically charged to a
credit card when they leave the store.’

The stores are named ‘Amazon Go’ and use machine sensors to identify which
customer has taken the product from the shelf.

Earth heading for 25-hour day as orbit slows

An article released by Sky shows that days are due to get longer in the future to 25 hours.
‘Over the past 27 centuries, the average day has lengthened at a rate of almost two milliseconds (ms)
per century.’
An interesting article however it does mention that this will take over 200 million years before
an extra hour occurs in the day. So a while to wait at the moment!
