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…

Best Android picture collage apps for 2015

Stories Email

When something awesome happens, one of the first instincts any
smartphone-toting individual has is of course, to immortalize the moment
by taking a picture. In most cases, one photo does not do it justice.

These photos then populate various social media platforms, usually in albums
for all your friends and acquaintances to see. Because posting 10
variations on a particularly well-lit selfie might (or anything similar
in theme and composition) might annoy your social followers (and cause
your Facebook friends to shake their heads and click the Hide button), photo collages are a great compromise.

For platforms like Instagram, one of the best ways to summarize a good day in full is through a photo collage, and in order to post one, you’ll need apps that’ll help you turn a photo square into a tiny scrapbook.

In order to help you compose a stunning summary of your memorable moments, we’ve rounded up the best Android picture collage apps that will minimize your social med…

Soon, wrap your smartphone on the wrist

Soon you may be able to use your smartphone on your wrist or bend your computer to fit in your pocket! Researchers have taken a step towards more flexible devices by fabricating a thin film that keeps her even when very curved electric and magnetic properties useful.

Flexible electronics have been difficult to manufacture because many materials with useful electronic properties tend to be rigid.

Researchers have addressed this problem by taking small pieces of material such as silicon and embedded in the flexible plastic.

A team of physicists and engineers from South Korea took the same approach with bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) - one of the most promising materials whose properties can be controlled with a magnetic field, and vice versa.

These materials are called multiferroic and attract interest for applications such as energy efficient, instant-on computing.

The researchers synthesized bismuth ferrite nanoparticles and mixed in a polymer solution. The solution was dried in a series o…
