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).

iPhone 5S rumored fingerprint sensor



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.

LiquidMetal for iPhone 5S



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.

Beeline is not renewing contract with Apple



Hi-Tech Mail reports that Beeline will not be renewing its contract with Apple.  Beeline is the last of Russian carriers who make such a decision. Beeline is planning to offer Samsung devices instead of iPhones.

Last month Apple established an online store for Russia; it was high time Cupertino Company did it. Now that three major Russian carriers are not working with Apple any more, its remaining contract with Svyasnoy will not be a good sell.
