Kellogg isn’t giving up on sugary cereals just yet. The cereal company’s latest breakfast invention is Chocolate Frosted Flakes, which will hit shelves across the nation in November. It might appear gimmicky, but Chocolate Frosted Flakes is part of Kellogg’s strategy to stop the bleeding in its core “morning foods” business, which includes staples like Rice Krispies and Pop-Tarts. As consumers reach for healthier food options, cereal is becoming a harder sell: Kellogg’s breakfast sales dropped nearly 7% this summer […]

AT&T and a Google-born moonshot project have teamed up to beam cell service to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico from giant floating balloons. It’s called Project Loon, and it was developed by X, a former branch of Google that became part of Alphabet when the company restructured. The idea is to broaden coverage using balloons that function like mobile cell towers. To bring the service to Puerto Rico, X needed a telecommunications partner in the area. That’s where AT&T came in. The companies […]
