seek thermal 640x426We’re not sure how many of you guys will actually need thermal imaging, but in case you do, you might be interested in a device called Seek Thermal. This is a relatively affordable thermal imaging attachment for your smartphone that basically turns your phone into a thermal imaging device.

Seek Thermal will attach to the iPhone via the Lightning port and will rely on chalcogenide lens and a vanadium oxide microbolometer to help create the thermal imaging effect. Priced at $200, it is probably one of the more expensive iPhone accessories, but it is still cheaper than the FLir One thermal imaging case released earlier this year at $350.

Apple’s PR machine isn’t exactly what most people would consider to be forgiving. If you might recall, the folks at Gizmodo have been banned at Apple events for years following the incident where they managed to get their hands on a leaked iPhone 4 prototype. Well it looks like German publication Computer Bild is the most recent to feel Apple’s wrath.

The publication had not too long ago posted a video in which they tried to bend the new iPhone 6 Plus. This was because they had heard reports of iPhone 6 Plus units bending in the pockets of its users, and so they were curious and decided to see what the fuss was all about and went out and got their hands on a iPhone 6 Plus of their own.

It seems that PayPal could have been Apple’s preferred payment process, however word has it that the talks soured which caused Apple to pull out from the talks. The reason things went south? Well if you might recall, PayPal had inked a deal with Samsung where PayPal would be linked with the fingerprint sensor of the Galaxy S5.
