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.

Copying that would be perfectly fair, as Google has recently confirmed that it will be copying at least part of Face ID’s Require Attention feature…


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.

Google this evening confirmed to The Verge that it’s “been working on an option for users to require their eyes to be ope…

NVIDIA's new shield tablet is like the old, but cheaper

NVIDIA's first shield tablet was a device that almost everything right:  the 8-inch slate had a sharp display is flanked by two speakers, a surprisingly precise integrated stylus and a powerful 192-core Kepler K1 processor. At the time it was simply the best games Android device on the market, and a pretty darn good Media Tablet start - but NVIDIA quietly put the shielding on the pasture earlier this year. The company is preparing for the start of a new, more powerful shield tablet? No: it is that of the same slate back on the market, albeit with a reduced, $199 price and less fuss.

At a glance the new NVIDIA shield tablet K1 is a dead ringer for its $299 predecessor with almost identical chassis with the same ports, buttons and layout camera. There were a few improvements: NVIDIA replaces the shiny black font on the shield logo with brushed metal sign and the new tablet speakers are with rubberized grip surface. In fact, the only difference between the old and the new is screen …

Watch Disney Animation legend behind Aladdin and Ariel draw in VR

opportunities are Glen Keane has an impact on you. As an animator at Disney, he brought to life iconic characters such as Aladdin, Ariel from the Little Mermaid, and the ever-popular Furry grump, Beast from beauty and the beast. But after almost four decades in the house of Mickey Mouse, Keane left in 2012, in order to discover new ways to live entertainment. His first stop was at Motorola (now Google's) Advanced Technology Group, where he developed the interactive short animated Duet (accessible as part of the spotlight stories app).  But his next attempt is even more exciting: drawing in virtual reality. This is the subject of a new short step in the page, created for the coming future summit of story telling.



The film, directed by Ashley Rodholm, shows how virtual reality allows Keane, his characters to bring to life at last. "If you draw, print them out, something real, visceral," he says shortly. "By selecting a line, it is a kind of barometer of the soul.&quo…

DEAD OR ALIVE RETROSPECTIVE SERIES: LESS LIKELY XBOX TAG TEAM PARTNER

Visual-edge-driven fight against, and applied creatively-body physics all come to mind when we think of Dead or Alive.   As the series has been closely associated with the launch of Xbox last, looking at their history reveals a game that jumped through numerous platforms before making a comfortable home on the Microsoft console.
Dead or Alive Originally released in 1996, from life designed for the Model 2 Sega arcade board. Model 2 3D fighters and hosted popular at the time, so it seemed a natural step for the project fighting game of Tecmo, aimed at rowdy bandwagon. "At the time, Tecmo was not doing so well," said former Team Ninja leader Tomonobu Itagaki in an interview in 2005, "The requested management style game Virtua Fighter. - Only better" Tecmo well prepared to take on Virtua Fighter on their own ground (and hardware).
