Touch ID for iPhone 6, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3

There’s a story going around that Touch ID sensors are being manufactured in anticipation for the iPhone 6, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3. So what does that mean?

Given the history of supply-chain reporting it’s hard to say. Flipping a coin is about as reliable. It’s also hard to say that it actually matters. Of course the iPhone 6 is going to have Touch ID. It’s not like Apple’s going to dump the feature. And of course the next generation iPads will have Touch ID. If Apple could have, they would have included Touch ID in the last generation iPads as well. What, you think anyone, anywhere, is happy unlocking their iPad like an animal?

If it somehow reassures you that rumors of Touch ID for iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 is making its way through the Asian press, then be reassured. If you kind of figured that Apple would make sure a technology as important as Touch ID moved across the iOS product line as fast as possible, then you’ve already got all the assurance you need.

If Apple holds to the same pattern as the previous couple of years, the iPhone 6 should launch sometime this September. Likewise, the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are expected to be announced and released sometime around October of 2014.

Anyone else eagerly awaiting Touch ID everywhere?

Earthling worms can be as disgusting as alien face huggers

Earthling worms can be as disgusting as alien face huggers

Blood Worms. They look like gentle earthworms until they extend their mouths and show their teeth made of atacamite, "a copper-based chloride biomineral." Their poisonous bite is painful for humans and kills whatever prey they find in the shallow marine waters where they live.

T-Mobile closes deal for 700MHz spectrum, reiterates commitment to LTE rollout

T-Mobile has finally closed a deal to acquire highly-valuable 700MHz spectrum from Verizon, enabling the next wave of network upgrades for the carrier. In the wireless world not all spectrum is created equal, with lower frequencies being more desirable because they travel further distances and better penetrate buildings. Both of these attributes are badly needed on T-Mobile’s network as it traditionally operates on much higher frequencies between 1700 and 2100MHz, and T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray has a good idea of what they will do with it.

Magic material is both a reflecting mirror and a see through window

Magic material is both a reflecting mirror and a see through window

No, it’s not a one way mirror. It’s much cooler than that. MIT scientists have invented a new invisible mirror that can show reflections like a typical mirror but also be see through like a window. The magic is in the alternating 84 ultra thin layers typical glass and tantalum oxide. It’s a mirror but when you spin it, it becomes transparent. Some light passes through, some light gets reflected.

Watch a tiny, magnetically powered robot construction crew go to work

A robot doesn’t have to big, powerful and terrifying to be worthwhile, and many people are working on miniature machines that are just as cool. Some of these endeavors show promise in medicine, but there are plenty of potential uses for microbots,…
