More evidence has emerged that shows Bill and Melinda Gates’ divorce has been in the works for months.

In fact, the former couple was reportedly set to make their announcement in March, which was supposed to coincide with Melinda taking her kids and their significant others to Calivigny Island in Grenada, TMZ reports. Melinda wanted everyone to get away to avoid the media circus that was inevitable once the divorce was revealed—and Bill wasn’t invited.

While Bill and Melinda’s lawyers couldn’t resolve the divorce before the scheduled trip, Melinda went anyway. The family apparently knew that the pair were splitting up and took Melinda’s side, with the outlet writing that Bill didn’t get the invite because everyone was upset with him. It seems that the divorce wasn’t amicable and the family is allegedly mad at Bill for his behavior. Melinda also reportedly rented the whole island for a reasonable $132,000 per night.

Melinda and Bill have also been divvying up their stocks. In addition to giving Melinda almost $2 billion worth of stock on the day of the divorce announcement, Bill has also given her approximately $120 million shares of Coca-Cola Femsa and $386 million of Grupo Televisa.

While TMZ reports that they have decided on a property settlement, many are still wondering who will get their sprawling Seattle estate, called Xanadu 2.0. Worth upwards of $131 million, the 66,000-square-foot lakefront property included a spa, 60-foot pool, gym, trampoline room, and a stream for fish—at least it did back in 1995, per a New York Times story. The home’s exact specifications have been under lock-and-key, with a tour of the property auctioning for $35,000 in 2009. The Gates also own surrounding pieces of land, so any effort to be nosey is impossible.

Bill and Melinda Gates announced their break up on May 3, with Bill divulging the news on social media. The couple had been married for 27 years and share three children.

The Duchess of Cambridge is trying to get her husband into gardening so he has a hobby to enjoy with his father, it emerged on Thursday. The Duke revealed during an engagement in Rhyl, North Wales, that his wife “does all the gardening” but that he was trying to learn the ropes so he has something to share with the Prince of Wales. The Duke, 38, was chatting to Brian Penney, 52, who is a coordinator for Men’s Sheds - a community project that encourages isolated men to build things and grow vegetables together. He told him: “My wife does all the gardening. I really like it but I have no idea what I’m doing.” Mr Penney said afterwards: “He told me Kate is getting him into gardening. She’s going to get him Monty Don’s book. “He said she wants to get him into it because Charles is into it, so it’s something for them to enjoy together. He was so down to earth, such a nice man.” The Duke was visiting Brighter Futures, an initiative launched in 2018 that involves eight local groups working together to support children, young people and older generations to participate in the community.

Frito-Lay is one of the biggest snack-makers on the planet. The company produces a huge number of different products in a variety of flavors and, for the most part, it gets things right when it comes to packaging. Unfortunately, even the most well-oiled machines aren't immune to hiccups every now and again. A new recall issued by Frito-Lay is a reminder of that. The company released a notice that it is conducting a voluntary recall of certain bags of Ruffles brand chips due to a mixup in the packaging process. The error resulted in a different flavor of chip being packaged in bags for Ruffles All Dressed Up flavor chips. The error sounds minor, but the recall had to be issued due to the flavor of chips that were placed in the wrong bags. The chips are a flavor that includes milk as an ingredient. Milk is a known allergen and can cause some pretty serious reactions in people who are sensitive to it. If an individual with a milk allergy consumes the chips they could face serious health consequences up to and including death. Yeah, it's pretty serious stuff. Frito-Lay released the following as part of its recall announcement: The recall was initiated after it was discovered that certain bags of Ruffles All Dressed Potato Chips were inadvertently filled with another flavor of potato chips, potentially exposing consumers to undeclared milk. No allergic reactions related to this matter have been reported to date. If consumers have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk, they are encouraged not to consume the product and discard it immediately. Frito-Lay has informed the FDA of the action. The company doesn't say exactly what type of chip ended up in the Ruffles All Dressed bags, but whatever it was it contains milk. Hopefully, anyone with a milk allergy will notice that the chips in the bags are different from what it says on the packaging and avoid eating them, but that can't be guaranteed. Identifying information including the UPC and date codes can be found on the recall bulletin. The company says that the chips were likely sold through Sam's Club warehouses in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. The company says that the recalled chips would not have been distributed to any other retailer, meaning that Sam's Club customers will want to be particularly vigilant of the chips they have recently purchased. Frito-Lay provides the following contact information on the recall page: Consumers with the product noted above can contact Frito-Lay Consumer Relations at 1-800-352-4477 (9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. CST, Monday-Friday). If you purchased any of these chips you are advised to avoid eating them, especially if you have a dairy or milk allergy. They can be safely discarded or returned to the store where you purchased them. You can also call the number above to discuss a refund if you purchased any recalled Ruffles.

When Apple typically issues mid-cycle iOS updates, I don't always update my iPhone immediately. Especially if the new update doesn't address any serious security issues or have any compelling new features, I've never been in a rush to update my phone if things are already running smoothly. The recent release of iOS 14.5.1, however, is an exception and an update you'll probably want to download as soon as possible. Apple first released iOS 14.5 just about a week ago with a host of new features, including the company's new App Tracking Transparency framework, new Siri voices, a multitude of new emojis, support for AirTags, and more. Just a few days later, Apple rolled out an iOS 14.5.1 update that it said addressed a bug associated with its App Tracking Transparency feature. An Apple support document, however, reveals that the new iOS update also addresses two serious security issues. While it's not uncommon for iOS updates to tackle security issues or bugs, this update is different insofar that the security issues at play may have already been exploited in the wild. In other words, these aren't theoretical security issues, but rather security issues with potentially real-world consequences. Addressing the two security issues, Apple notes that it's aware that both of them "may have been actively exploited." Both security issues involve WebKit and involve all iPhone models going all the way back to the iPhone 6s. A number of iPad models are impacted as well: Apple details the security content of its iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 updates as follows: WebKit Available for: iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation) Impact: Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution. Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited. Description: A memory corruption issue was addressed with improved state management. CVE-2021-30665: yangkang (@dnpushme)&zerokeeper&bianliang of 360 ATA WebKit Available for: iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation) Impact: Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution. Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited. Description: An integer overflow was addressed with improved input validation. CVE-2021-30663: an anonymous researcher Apple hasn't provided more detailed information about how the issues above may have been exploited, but you'll still want to update to iOS 14.5.1 as soon as you can. Security issues aside, there are several other reasons to update to 14.5.1 if you're still running iOS 14.4 or an even older iteration of iOS. To this point, some other iOS 14.5 features worth mentioning include: Unlock iPhone with Apple Watch Ability to unlock your ‌iPhone‌ X and later with Apple Watch Series 3 and later when you attempt to use Face ID while wearing a face mask AirTag and Find My Support for AirTag to keep track of and find your important items like your keys, wallet, backpack and more, privately and securely in the Find My app Precision Finding uses visual, audible, and haptic feedback to guide you directly to your nearby AirTag using Ultra Wideband provided by the U1 chip on iPhone 11 and ‌iPhone 12‌ models AirTag can be located by playing a sound via the built-in speaker The ‌Find My‌ network with hundreds of millions of devices can help you find your AirTag, even when it isn’t nearby Lost Mode notifies you when your AirTag is found, and you can enter a phone number where you can be contacted Siri‌ Siri now includes more diverse voice options Incoming calls can be announced with ‌Siri‌, including who is calling, when you’re wearing your ‌AirPods‌ or compatible Beats headphones, and you can answer hands-free Group FaceTime calls are supported by asking ‌Siri‌ to ‌FaceTime‌ a list of contacts or a group name from Messages Emergency contacts can be called by asking ‌Siri‌ Privacy Podcasts Podcasts Show Pages are redesigned to make it easier to start listening Option to save and download episodes, automatically adding them to your Library for quick access Download behavior and notification settings can be customized on a show-by-show basis Top Charts and popular categories in Search help you discover new shows 5G Improvements Dual SIM support enables 5G connectivity on the line that’s using cellular data on ‌iPhone 12‌ models Smart Data Mode improvements further optimize your experience on 5G networks for better battery life and data usage on ‌iPhone 12‌ models 5G international roaming enabled on supported carriers on ‌iPhone 12‌ models News
