iPhone Feature Request: Copy ‘Skip Lock Screen’ feature from Google’s Pixel 4

Face Unlock on Google’s Pixel 4 is less secure than the iPhone’s Face ID, but it does have one feature I’d like to see Apple copy: Skip Lock Screen.

The Pixel 4 will copy Require AttentionLike Apple’s iPhone X, XS, and 11, Google’s new flagship Pixel 4 smartphone can unlock by recognizing your face. However, the company quickly came under fire when it was revealed that the device can be unlocked even when the owner is asleep, simply by someone else holding it up to their face.

With iPhones, there is a Requires Attention toggle. When this is on, your iPhone will only unlock if your eyes are open and you are actually looking at the screen. Google has now said that it plans to copy at least the first part of this requirement.

How to sell your old smartphone for cash

The iPhone 6 is officially here

 Thousands of Houstonians lined the rain to get a Friday. That means a lot of older phones are sitting around collecting dust, but there are ways to quickly turn that old smartphone cash.

Bill Hendrix has a trading business in cell phone and said he has seen before: a new model phone is launched and hours later, his shop is flooded with customers.

"We will be hit with an avalanche of people," Hendrix said. "People literally walk, tripping over the sidewalk, almost through the glass because they are playing with their new phone."

Hendrix specializes in buying and selling used cell phones and the No. 1 question that arises is "What is the value of my phone?" The answer is: it depends.

"The phones themselves have become a commodity.'s All based on supply and demand, which changes and all price ranges," said Hendrix.

Hendrix said prices change daily, but usually pay between $ 40 and $ 100 for frequently used numbers.

"If it's so good that it will reduce the value. Scratched if it will decrease the value," he said.

Whether it is an LG, iPhone, Samsung or Sony, and carrier status are the two most important determinants. Phones registered with AT & T or T-Mobile have the highest resale value because they can be transferred to other providers.

"The carrier, because that's what people want. Due to the versatility that is available on these phones and happen to have two carriers," Hendrix said. "They are what everyone wants."

Hendrix has this advice for getting the most out of your old phone:
1 Clean and fully charge the battery.
2 Remove the handset from your account.
3 Bring a copy of your bill to prove anything owed.
4 For greater security, do a factory reset, remembering to remove the SD and SIM card on Samsung phones.

And finally, do your research and deal with a reputable buyer. If you are dealing online, beware the fine print.

"I've never met a person, ever, to send in a phone to an online store and get what you really said was," Hendrix said.

Even if you decide it is not only worth selling your old phone, you should never throw away. Out of date phones can recycled.Click here to visit the city's recycling program electronics Houston.

Google's new Face Match technology isn't everywhere yet, but it's always looking. Find out what's happening with your face data and what you can do stop it.

Google's latest smart display brings with it a controversial new feature that's always watching. Face Match, introduced on the Google Nest Hub Max, uses the smart display's front-facing camera as a security feature and a way to participate in video calls. It also shows you your photos, texts, calendar details and so on when it recognizes your face.
This mode of facial recognition sounds simple enough at first. But the way companies like Google collect, store and process face data has become a top concern for privacy-minded consumers. Plenty of people want to know who has their personal information once it makes its way into the cloud.
