iSkin Biometric Tattoos That Can Control Your Smart Phone

iSkin Biometric tattoo may soon mean you will soon be able to control your iPhone by stroking your tattoos!

A new sensor means that users will be able to control smartphones by stroking their tattoos – turning skin itself into a sensor.

The iSkin system is made of biocompatible silicone rubber with pressure-sensitive sensors which are stuck to users’ skin.

Designed by scientists at the Max Plank Institute, iSkin could be stuck to fingers, forearms or even behind people’s ears.

Developer Martin Weigel says, ‘Current electronics are mostly using rigid components which are very uncomfortable to wear on the body and are limiting the locations to, for example, the wrist or on the head to be worn.

‘But our sensor is a flexible and stretchable sensor, so it can cover many locations. For example, even the backside of the ear or the forearm. So, we have a much larger input space than current electronics allow for.’

Sheep to be turned into WiFi hotspots in rural areas – WiFi Enabled Sheep

The countryside might have beautiful views and fresh air, but the lack of good WiFi makes it nearly impossible to check Facebook and post pictures of #thegreatoutdoors to Instagram.

However this one flaw in the rural Britain could soon be a thing of the past as a university team are planning on turning sheep into mobile WiFi hotspots.

(Note: This is not an early and elaborate April fools joke)

Professor Gordon Blair and his team from Lancaster University are trialling a project in which they hope to pioneer the ‘Internet of Things’ (or IOT) project.

They plan to fit sheep with collars to track their movements, and add sensors to river banks to measure erosion.

Not only do they hope this will provide invaluable information about the countryside, but they even say one day these electrical devices could be used as WiFi spots.

‘The possibilities are limitless,’ said Prof Blair.

‘Cities have been the focus of much of the boom in this type of technology – it has been used to keep traffic flowing on our roads, monitor air pollution and even help us find a parking spot.

‘But the countryside faces challenges of its own, from subtle environmental changes to catastrophic events such as flooding.’

The collars worn by the sheep will be able to transmit data as far as 5km, making them perfect emergency WiFi hotspots for lost ramblers.

And before you say it – yes, we called up Lancaster University to confirm that this isn’t one big joke.

10 Warning Signs You’re Addicted To Your Phone | Phone Addiction

If you find yourself checking your phone first thing in the morning, before even getting out of bed, you may be addicted. If you find you’re text-messaging while driving – despite the dangers, checking your phone instead of working on an important assignment, or checking Facebook during a romantic dinner, you are definitively an addicted.

It’s hard for most people to imagine life without constant access to the internet. But for some of us, living without the web is simply IMPOSSIBLE to imagine.The amount of time we engage in online activities, like updating statuses, posting photos, commenting, texting or checking work emails has been increasing in recent years. Given the accessibility and ease of use of internet whenever and wherever you are, it’s no wonder more and more people are addicted to their phones.

How do you know if you’re already addicted or rapidly tumbling toward trouble? Now there’s a smartphone app (ha!) that will answer that question as well as help smartphone addicts learn how to live a ‘healthy digital lifestyle.’

The app, called BreakFree, tracks the amount of time you spend looking at your phone, and gives you a heads-up when it might be time for a break. It will help users measure which apps they use the most and beat their possible smartphone addictions.

Currently available only for Android phones, the new app operates in the background of a phone, keeping tabs on how long you spend using apps, how often you unlock your phone and how much time you spend making phone calls. It calculates an ‘addiction score’ based on these metrics, and will send reminders suggesting you slow down when your use is on the rise.

It’s like having a rehab coach who tells you when you’ve been making an excessive number of calls or have been spending too much time in a particular app. With these notifications you will know it’s time to slow down.

If you’re getting a little worried about how frequently your phone is in your hand, check out the free version app on Google Play.

Do you think that you’re addicted to the internet but overall you use it in moderation? Have you had at least two conversations with actual human beings today without glancing at your phone? Have you found yourself up late last night playing on your phone, whether it is video games, Facebook, or text messaging? Here are ten warning signs that will tell you if you are a cell phone addict.

1. You maintain three to five text threads or WhatsApp chains going throughout most days.
2. You feel bummed when you forget to bring your phone into the bathroom.
3. You sleep with your phone on your nightstand, or worse, in your bed next to you.
4. A cracked screen would never stand in your way.
5. You feel a brief moment of panic when you touch your pocket (or grope to the bottom of your purse) and it’s gone.
6. You constantly catch yourself trying to open apps you’re already in. Not to mention, you have 50 different apps installed. And use them all.
7. You break it, and it feels like you lost a friend.
8. You sit on the ground of a germ-filled public space to charge your phone.
9. You justify being on your phone all the time because you might miss a work email.
10. You’re currently reading this on your cell phone.

If you identify with any of these, welcome to the Smartphone Addiction Club! Take a deep breath and leave your phone behind while you’re at it. You can handle it, we promise. Let us know your results in the comments below.

Naked selfies extracted from ‘factory reset’ phones

Experts Recover Dick Pics and Naked Photos from Smartphones – Naked selfies extracted from ‘factory reset’ phones

Thousands of pictures including “naked selfies” have been extracted from factory-wiped phones by a Czech Republic-based security firm.

The firm, called Avast, used publicly available forensic security tools to extract the images from second-hand phones bought on eBay.

Other data extracted included emails, text messages and Google searches.

Experts have warned that the only way to completely delete data is to “destroy your phone”.

Most smartphones come with a “factory reset” option, which is designed to wipe and reset the device, returning it to its original system state.

However, Avast has discovered that some older smartphones only erase the indexing of the data and not the data itself, which means pictures, emails and text messages can be recovered relatively easily by using standard forensic tools that anyone can buy and download.

The company claims that of 40,000 stored photos extracted from 20 phones purchased from eBay, more than 750 were of women in various stages of undress, along with 250 selfies of “what appears to be the previous owner’s manhood”.

There was an additional 1,500 family photos of children, 1,000 Google searches, 750 emails and text messages and 250 contact names and email addresses.

The company said: “Deleting files from your Android phone before selling it or giving it away is not enough. You need to overwrite your files, making them irretrievable.”

It was not made clear by Avast whether they extracted data from all 20 phones.
Destroy the phone

Google responded that Avast used outdated smartphones and that their research did not “reflect the security protections in Android versions that are used by the vast majority of users”.

It was recommended by Google that all users enable encryption on their devices before applying a factory reset to ensure files cannot be accessed.

This feature, said Google, has been available for three years, although it is not enabled by default, which could leave less tech-savvy users open to attack.

Apple has had built-in encryption for its hardware and firmware since the release of the iPhone 3GS.

The hardware encryption is permanently enabled and users cannot turn it off.

Additional file data protection is available, but must be turned on in the settings menu.

Independent computer security analyst Graham Cluley said that if a user is serious about privacy and security they should make sure their device is always “protected with a PIN or passphrase, and that the data on it is encrypted”.

However, Alan Calder, founder of cybersecurity and risk management firm IT Governance, told the BBC that erasing data, even after it has been encrypted, will not be enough to completely protect your device.

“Google’s recommended routine for protecting the data only makes it harder for someone to recover the data – it does not make it impossible,” he said.

“If you don’t want your data recovered, destroy the phone – and that has been standard security advice, in relation to telephones and computer drives, for a number of years. Any other ‘solution’ simply postpones the point at which someone is able to access your confidential data.”
