Apple’s Radical New iPhone Suddenly Takes Shape

Published

iPhone

Apple played safe with its (intelligently upgraded) iPhone 11 series and the result is a rock-solid range that gets the basics right. But they don’t quicken pulse rates like what is coming next.

Following a series of leaks (1,2,3,4,5), we know a lot about Apple’s plans to launch a radically redesigned 2020 iPhone and now expert render artists at PhoneArea have put them all together for the first time.

The big takeaways are Apple’s repeatedly leaked plans to return the so-called iPhone 12 to a boxier design akin to the iPhone 4, as well as shrinking the notch. Apple is also adding an additional Time Of Flight (ToF) camera (like most rivals) with Bloomberg detailing the inclusion of long-range 3D capabilities to the primary camera to enable the mapping of surroundings up to 15 feet away. A feature designed to boost augmented reality apps.

Flaws? I understand that there won’t be a fourth camera because a ToF sensor is tiny and 3D will come to the primary lens, so the existing triple array will appear largely unchanged. That said, PhoneArena does a superb job of illustrating the broad brushstrokes of what we can expect.

And what PhoneArena can’t show, are the mass of internal changes Apple also has planned. Perhaps the biggest is the inclusion of 5G on every model, though the return of Touch ID could prove just as popular along with ProMotion displays. The long-awaited switch to USB-C from Lightning should also prove popular in tempting Android owners to switch camps.

The one fly in the ointment is cost, with reports breaking earlier this week that all these upgrades could result in major price hikes. But if Apple can keep this down, the 2020 iPhone may just be one of the most exciting iPhones in years.

Scientists Discover Possible Cure For Baldness

Published

on

A cure for baldness might soon be available after scientists grew hair on mice, using human stem cells.

This breakthrough could lead to an unlimited supply of locks for millions who are bald.

The only solution for men presently is transplanting hair follicles from one part of the head to the other.

The new cure will also be useful for the skin disease alopecia that causes hair to fall out – as well as burns victims according to The Mirror.

The new therapy as recorded in the British journal Nature, healed baldness since the cells were 100 percent human.

The US team created tiny skin buds, or ‘organoids’, in a petri dish from the pluripotent stem cells that can turn into any type of tissue.

When the “remarkably complete” skin was implanted onto the backs of immuno-compromised bald mice, hair loss was reversed.

According to a corresponding author of the research work, Professor Karl Koehler:

“The skin is a multi-layered organ, equipped with appendages such as follicles and glands that are critical for regulating body temperature and the retention of bodily fluids. This helps protect the body against illness and injury as well as controlling the sensation of touch and pain. Reconstructing appendage-bearing skin in cultures and in bio-engineered grafts is a challenge that has yet to be met. Here we report an organoid culture system that generates complex skin from human pluripotent stem cells. Direct comparison to foetal specimens suggests the skin organoids are equivalent to the facial skin of humans in the second trimester of development.”

Speaking further about the research, other researchers state that if the approach reaches the clinic, individuals who have wounds, scars, and genetic skin diseases will have access to revolutionary treatments.

Last year another US team grew hair using a combination of cells from mice and humans.

Among celebrities that have been claimed to have hair transplants are Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs.

Snapchat Halts Promoting President Trump’s Account

Published

on

Snapchat has disclosed that they will no longer promote President Trump’s account on its Discover media platform according to a report by Hollywood Reporter.

Evan Spiegel-led Snap said it made the decision after determining that Trump’s comments could incite violence. The company pointed to tweets from Trump over the weekend in which he threatened to send “vicious dogs” and “ominous weapons” to stop the protests that have been taking place across the country in response to the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police.

In the words of a company spokeswoman according to a statement:

Racial violence and injustice have no place in our society and we stand together with all who seek peace, love, equality, and justice in America.

Snap’s decision comes as social media platforms weigh their role in disseminating the comments of the president that threaten violence or contain misinformation.

Last week, Twitter began labeling tweets from the president that violate its policies. Facebook, meanwhile, has said it would not take action on Trump’s posts, this led employees to stage a virtual walkout on Monday.

In reaction to twitter’s action, Trump denounced the move and signed an executive order that charged federal regulators with pulling back the legal protections that shield social media companies from liability in what is posted to their platforms.

Trump’s account will remain public on Snapchat, and users will be able to continue to search for and subscribe to it. Snapchat has long maintained that Discover is a curated feed and not a public “town square.”

Snapchat is a popular messaging app that lets users exchange pictures and videos (called snaps) that are meant to disappear after they’re viewed.

It’s advertised as a “new type of camera” because the essential function is to take a picture or video, add filters, lenses, or other effects and share them with friends.
