Apple sets a date to show off new software, I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNet update. [MUSIC] Are you ready for another Apple event? The Apple Watch isn't even officially here yet, but Apple has set the date for it's next big event, June 8th is the start of WWDC. That's a conference for Apple developers. It's when the company shows off new mobile and desktop software. But, we may also learn about the rumored paid music streaming service that Apple has been working on since it acquired Beats Music. But it's not just. Just a new music service. Apple is also redesigning the main music app on iOS. Apple released a preview version of iOS 8.4 to beta testers and with it, the music app has a new layout for browsing your music or streaming iTunes Radio. Meanwhile, Apple is also making a bigger push into healthcare. The company announced a partnership with IBM to help healthcare companies analyze patient data collected from the Apple Watch. IBM is using the computing power of Watson. Yes, the same Watson made famous from Jeopardy to create the Watson Health Cloud. It'll store, share and analyze patient data. Apple will integrate Watson based programs into health kit and research kits. And while IBM uses the cloud to improve health, SodaStream is using the cloud. To improve bubbly beverages. A new product called the Soda Stream Mix is coming out next year and it'll allow you to carbonate any liquid at home. You can't do that with today's Soda Stream machines. If you try and carbonate anything besides water it could break the machine and create a mess because its only calculated to make water fizzy. But this new version can re-calibrate itself for different liquids. And it can download the programming over the internet. When it comes out in 2016 you may be able to add some sparkle to that wine at home. The internet connection also makes it so you can share your settings and concoctions with friends. In other news, it seems some details of Google's upcoming wireless service have leaked out. A report from Android police describes details. Of a leaked app called Project Fi. It acts as a control hub for your Google wireless plan. You can pay bills, check data use, typical stuff for managing a plan. But the app also includes a way to pause, or suspend your service, or close your account. So you could sign up and change an account without ever needing to go to any store. It's all within the app. The code also suggests that you would pay for data by the gigabyte, and calls and texts would be free in the US. Google has officially said it is working on such a service. Perhaps we'll learn more next month during. Google's developers conference on May 28th. It's just a week before Apple's event. That's your tech news update; for more, head to Cnet.com.
