touchid-not-workingWhen purchasing goods online, there are many methods of making a payment although PayPal is one of the more popular choices due to its ubiquitous nature and its security. Now if you use the app often on your phone and want to prevent others from snooping in on your activities or using it without your authorization, you will be pleased to learn that the iOS version has recently been updated.

The latest update to the iOS version of PayPal will come with support for Touch ID. What this means is that users can now use Touch ID to log into their PayPal app, thus preventing unauthorized access. We suppose this has been a long time coming especially since PayPal did announce that they would be bringing Touch ID support, but better late than never, right?

qualcomm-fingerprint-readerEarly this year Qualcomm announced a new technology that they are working on dubbed Sense ID. It sounds a lot like Apple’s Touch ID and rightfully so since Sense ID is also a fingerprint scanning technology. However if it has one advantage over Touch ID, it is that it relies on ultrasound to scan the person’s ID, versus the 2D method which is currently being used.

Now the question is when can we start seeing OEMs incorporate Sense ID into their products? The good news is that we won’t have to wait too long as Japanese carrier NTT DOCOMO has recently announced that they will be deploying Qualcomm’s Sense ID into phones that will be released on its network, which at the moment includes brands such as Sharp and Fujitsu.

ikea_wirelessAs you might have heard, IKEA is planning on integrating more wireless chargers into its furniture, and the good news is that if you were looking forward to getting your hands on IKEA’s wireless charging furniture is that it looks like the products have started to show up on IKEA’s website.

Previously IKEA had stated that the entire lineup will be available late Spring so we guess now’s as good a time as any. It should be noted that while the products have popped up on IKEA’s website, they aren’t available for purchase online. Instead IKEA has suggested on its website that customers might want to check IKEA’s physical stores for stock. Read full post →IKEA’s Wireless Charging Furniture Shows Up On Website



At the end of March this year, Microsoft made an announcement of their latest tablet, the Microsoft Surface 3, which is a device that Microsoft like to call “the full Windows experience”. I would like to think that the Surface 3 is meant to take over from where Windows RT left off, and hopefully, this time around, the Surface 3 will end up as a popular consumer-friendly device that folks would not mind toting it. As we all jolly well know, the success of a particular device would also hinge largely on the marketing and promotional materials, which is why right after the jump, you will be able to check out a quartet of more short videos in addition to the one above that promotes the various aspects and qualities of the Microsoft Surface 3.

enterprise-officeThere are many different kinds of questions that are sure to be asked in life, and this particular one certainly deserves its place. After all, if you have an insane amount of money, would you want to refurbish your home to have it look like that of the U.S.S. Enterprise starship from the Star Trek series? A certain Tim Baker and his crew as featured on the “Super-Fan Builds” web series have come together to work out a “Star Trek” Enterprise home office for super-fan Jake Geiger, and this was made possible thanks to his girlfriend Christina Haberkern who nominated him.

nokia-lumia-920-review-016-640x426The Lumia 940 is an upcoming handset from Microsoft that we have been hearing about for a while now. If the rumors are to be believed, the phone could very well be Microsoft’s next-gen flagship that would most probably be launched after the release of Windows 10 Mobile. That being said, updated specs have surfaced courtesy of WMPowerUser.

Previously we had heard of the Lumia 940 but it seems that it could also get a larger cousin in the form of the Lumia 940 XL. For the most part both phones appear to be identical with some minor differences in its hardware. For starters the Lumia 940 is said to feature a 5.2-inch display and will come with a 3,000mAh battery. Read full post →Alleged Lumia 940, 940 XL Specs Leaked


apple-maps-ios-7-navigationLast week we reported that one of the new features that Apple will be introducing in iOS 9 is Transit Maps. This will basically be an additional feature that can be found within the Apple Maps app and if you are eager to try it out and see if Apple has done it justice, you might be disappointed to learn that its availability could be a bit limited at launch.

This is according to the folks at 9to5Mac who claims that the feature will only be available in a handful of cities upon its release. So far they have heard that it will be available in the US, Canada, Europe, and China, but like we said even then it will only cover a few cities and not the entire region.

powerpoint androidA couple of months ago, Microsoft announced a deal with Samsung in which several of Microsoft’s apps would be bundled together with Samsung’s new phones. At that time it seemed like this was a deal that Microsoft only made with Samsung, but as it turns out it was just a prelude of what’s to come.

The Redmond company has recently announced that their app bundle deal will now extend to more Android OEMs. This means that Microsoft will include apps such as their Office suite on Android devices, along with the company’s other products such as OneDrive and Skype, presumably with the intention of spreading its ecosystem, even if it is on the platform of its rivals.

dog-apple-watchI believe that for a number of us, a smartwatch is not quite the necessity that a smartphone is at the moment, although it might take some time before the smartwatch attains such a “status”, so to speak, among the tech loving community. The Apple Watch has definitely raised some eyebrows with its announcement, and here is an ostentatious display of wealth that you might cringe at, or commend, depending on which side of the fence you are on. Apparently, a wealthy man in China purchased not one, but two gold Apple Watch Editions – and to see him gift it to his dog is all the more bizarre!
