Android Devs May Follow Apple's Face ID Lead


Apple’s use of facial recognition to unlock its iPhone X may open the gates for developers champing at the bit to bring the technology to the Android world. Face ID, which will replace fingerprint scanning in Apple’s new $1,000 iPhone X, uses Apple’s TrueDepth 3D camera to verify the owner of a phone and unlock it. Android developers have been working on similar systems and are close to bringing them to market, said George Brostoff, CEO of Sensible Vision. “A lot of the Android photo OEMs have been looking at facial recognition,” he said.

The Subscription Economy's Maturation


A lot happens in a decade. Bill Gates once said that we overestimate what we can do in two years and underestimate what we can do in 10. 2017 is a particularly good time to stop paddling and look back at what’s been going on in the last decade. While we will all have our favorite memories, there’s one in CRM that stands out more than others for me. After all, 2007 was the year of the iPhone, as well as the year before everything in the financial world began going down in a big way. There was barely any social media to speak of.

Bill Gates' Open Letter


It has been 40 years since Bill Gates wrote his open letter to the software industry complaining that computer hobbyists were stealing his BASIC program. That was so long ago that Wikipedia has a picture of the source code for “Micro-Soft” BASIC on paper tape. A lot of things have changed since then. In the 1970s when Microsoft was getting started, it was common for people to copy, swap or donate software simply because they could. Especially in the hobbyist community, people bought hardware and they got software in any way possible.

The future of birth control and drug delivery: Remote controlled implants that last for 16 years

Microchips, drug dispensing implant contraceptive thing
An MIT spin-off in Massachusetts, backed by the Gates Foundation, has developed a small, remote-controlled drug-dispensing implant that sits just under your skin. Such an implant could be used to dispense a whole range of useful drugs — but in this case, one of the first commercial applications will be the contraceptive hormone levonorgestrel. A single implant can apparently provide enough levonorgestrel to be effective for 16 years; currently, no implanted contraceptive works for more than five years.
