If you choose Sprint or Verizon as your wireless carrier, your iPhone will use CDMA cellular technology for voice and data services. If you buy an iPhone with Sprint or Verizon, it will work on AT&T or T-Mobile. An iPhone activated on Sprint or Verizon also has the ability to roam internationally on GSM networks. For details on LTE network support, please see www.apple.com/iphone/LTE.
A team at the University of California, San Francisco, has developed the first implantable artificial kidney, a coffee-cup-sized box containing silicon filters and live kidney cells grown in a bioreactor that can be connected to the patient’s circulatory system and bladder to clean the blood 24 hours a day.
Apple has done it yet again: by launching a brand new generation of iPhones, this time in the form of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus that will see off the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Incidentally, the previous generation iPhones have now been given a price drop, so woe to those who could not wait for one more day before the iPhone 8’s release and picked up the previous generation handset. Just what kind of goodies can we expect from the new iPhones?
Microsoft’s first crack at a real laptop (not a tablet-notebook hybrid) is a real winner. Between its light and elegant design, sharp screen, and long-lasting battery, the Surface Laptop is solid choice for anyone seeking a new Windows computer. Microsoft is positioning the Surface Laptop as a showpiece for Windows 10 S, the newer version of Windows that can only run programs from Microsoft’s app store. With Windows 10 S, Microsoft is essentially hoping to bring to Windows machines what has done for Chromebooks: making the software simpler to allow for faster performance, more battery life, and better security. But those who find Windows 10 S too restrictive can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro on the Surface Laptop for free for a limited time. The software upgrade will cost $50 after the promotional period ends.
Nearly all iPhone models sold on apple.com are “unlocked” — which means your iPhone isn’t tied to a single carrier. Your iPhone will only be tied to your carrier if you choose carrier financing from AT&T or Verizon.
Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, you’ll probably have a hard time getting your hands on one. And yes, Android did it first. But the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge screen and facial recognition system will undoubtedly set a new standard for phones to come. For one, Apple’s Face ID system, even despite the security concerns, is already being used in more creative ways than Samsung’s facial identification tech. Third-party apps like Snapchat and Warby Parker are taking advantage of the iPhone X’s face-mapping technology to project realistic masks over your eyes or select glasses that suit your face’s shape. That, combined with a sharp camera, long battery life, and large screen packed into a more palatable size, make Apple’s iPhone X a top pick.
Kohler’s new bathtub supports voice commands for water temperature and fill level, or tweaking via the company’s new Konnect app. And, of course, you can always adjust the tub’s hydrotherapy and vibracoustic soundwave settings.
Another one of these cool iPhone gadgets is DOCK+. DOCK+ sits elegantly on your desk, nightstand, or any flat surface, providing a sleek and stable base for charging your iPhone or iPad. A striking slice of aircraft grade aluminum and weighted silicone base support your device, allowing you to comfortably use it as it recharges.
I’m not going to get into the argument about whether or not it’s wise to get behind the wheel after more than a glass of wine but I can still see the point of a gadget that let’s you know where you stand vis-à-vis the long arm of the law.
This mouse has been on our wish list for more than 4 years. But it turned out not to be so easy to make a mouse that does not make the clicking-sound. Finally we have found some patented silent switch and integrated it in a nice and practical mouse.
Makani’s enormous “energy kite” is a new type of turbine that generates electricity by flying against the wind in acrobatic loops while tethered to the ground. As the kite flies around, rotors on the wing spin as the wind moves through them. The power generated on board travels down the tether to the grid. The design allows for the system to be installed in parts of the world where regular wind turbines aren’t economically viable or physically possible. The latest prototype can generate enough energy to power up to 300 homes.
