Starbucks adds plant-based sausage sandwich to its summer menu

Published

on

Impossible Foods, the company best known for its plant-based Impossible Burger product, is now the supplier for Starbuck’s new plant-based sausage sandwich. This product isn’t vegan-friendly as it contains both cheese and egg, but it does give vegetarians and health-conscious consumers a new meat-free fast food option. Starbucks already lists the new sandwich on its website.

Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen plant-based meat alternatives arrive in a limited way in a variety of restaurants and fast food stores, the most notable having been Burger King’s widespread rollout of a plant-based version of its Whopper burger. These plant-based faux meats have also become common in grocery stores in the US.

Months after testing the sale of a faux-sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich in Canada — that test involved Beyond Meat patties — it is now offering an Impossible Sausage version of the sandwich as part of its summer menu at stores in the United States.

According to the Starbucks website, the Impossible Breakfast Sandwich is made from ciabatta bread, an egg sourced from cage-free chickens, a slice of cheddar cheese, and the plant-based Impossible Foods sausage patty. The sandwich has 430 calories, making it around the same as other fast-food breakfast sandwiches, including a hefty 830mg of sodium.

The sandwich can be ordered online and in-store at locations offering the product. Vegans can request the sandwich without egg and cheese, though it may be a bit bland without the two. A quick search on the Starbucks website indicates this sandwich is widely available at its stores.

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
