This is an old video featuring Steve Jobs introducing Wi-Fi for the first time to the masses. It was the first mainstream computer with wireless networking.
The video was filmed on a Keynote conference in 1999, where Steve Jobs introduced the iBook G3. It was the first computer that carried an inserted Wi-Fi card. It was the first time Wi-Fi was introduced to the masses. To prove that the technology was really wireless, Steve Jobs used a Hula Hoop to put the laptop through it.
On this historic conference Jobs said that 'everyone' would jump on the 802.11 bandwagon in the next few months/years. "We're just going to be there first, and the best," Jobs said.
The video shows Jobs surfing the net from an iBook that was just woken from sleep. Nobody in the audience was aware that Jobs was using a wireless technology, so when he stood up, picked up the laptop and walked around the stage, opening webpages wirelessly, the crowd roared with applauses. Then he put the laptop through a hula hoop to show that the Internet collection was indeed wireless.

This is the article devoted to all parents and their children. Lee Neale, an aerospace engineer from Somerset, UK, lost as much as $6.000 due to 8-year-old daughter and his own carelessness. Here’s what The Mirror reports about:
Karsten Nohl claims that some SIM cards feature a flaw in the encryption technology, so that telephones with the cards can be spied on.
This flaw enables the hackers to send a spoof text message to the device. The latter will answer by revealing the 56-bit data encryption standard key (DES). Using the key, the attacker gains possibility to install dangerous software on the device and even listen in on your phone calls, access/send text messages and much more.
Apple has recently published a patent which describes that the rumored fingerprint sensor for the iPhone 5S will be built into the screen. It was suggested before that the sensor would be inserted in the Home button.
iPhone 5S has been long rumored to have a fingerprint sensor, the latter being a distinguishing feature from the previous models. In the new model the fingerprint sensor will be used to verify purchases and to unlock the device. It will certainly be a breakthrough technology. However, it essential to say that Apple is not the first company using new technologies such as cardless payments. Fingerprint sensors have been rumored to be used in iPhones since Apple acquired the mobile security company AuthenTec last year.

According to BGR's Jonathan S. Geller, Apple is about to announce the iPhone 5S produced with the help of LiquidMetal technology.
LiquidMetal is a breakthrough discovery, which can be compared with the invention of thermoplastics. Only the characteristics of the new alloy are much commercially-viable than those of thermoplastics. One of the best features is the "amorphous" atomic structure that differs LiquidMetal from other alloys. Another advantage is a multi-component chemical composition, so that the alloy can be used for whatever purpose. Last but not the least; LiquidMetal can be processed with the same technology as plastics.
It was in 2010 when Apple signed an exclusive agreement with Liquidmetal Technologies to use its technologies in the consumer electronics field. Since then the results of the deal have been expected, but with no success.
