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.

Microsoft has launched an ad attacking Apple. Or should be say launched again? It is not the first time Microsoft is comparing its devices with iPad. The ad always claims Microsoft products to be much cooler. They feature exactly the specifics iPad lacks. For example, a built-in back stand, USB port, and keyboard accessory. All of these accessories are options on the iPad, though it still can be considered a disadvantage. Are they really? The price for such an ad is quite high to pay. It was announced that Microsoft lost 900 million dollars in the last quarter due to Surface discount.
Another interesting feature is that in all ads of such type the Voiceover says,”This isn’t going to end well for me, is it? Nope definitely not ending well.” However, financial research shows that it is the Surface which is likely to be in trouble rather than Apple’s iPad.
A new flexible battery was presented recently by ProLogium company from Taiwan. It happened only a few days after Apple patented the flexible battery design to use in iWatch.
The patent features a special bendable battery that consists of rigid batteries inserted into a flexible plastic substrate (FPS). The latest version of the batteries presented by the Taiwanese company feature bendable batteries which is a breakthrough in this technology.
Have a look at the video to see what it means. First, the general usage of flexible batteries is presented. Later, you will be shown some video concerning smart-watch.
A new version of the most widely used web browser ever - Google Chrome - has become available for all the iOS users.

Not bad, I must say.
According to CNET, Microsoft has released another video to mock Apple's iPad. Such information was shared today on Twitter. What kind of video is that?
Every new iPhone always features its own unique points, completely different from what its predecessors had. In case of iPhone 5S there are quite a few. The rumored fingerprint scanner is followed by another development – a 120FPS slow motion camera. It is believed that iPhone 5S will also boast really cool camera pack, including a dual LED flash and a 13MP sensor.
Currently Apple is designing a new camera feature for iPhone. It is a mode called “Mogul”. The latter will enable iPhone to capture video in a fast and precise way, at a rate of 120 frames-per-second (FPS). Unfortunately, the resolution of the 120 FPS is still unclear.
Samsung releases… no, not another Galaxy device with an enormous screen. This time it’s an ad, to be more precise – an anti-Apple one, of course. It comes from Iceland and I bet you have never ever seen anything stranger than this short video.
As to the plot – a man is holding a nice red apple in his hand and tries hard to make a call. Quite predictably, he fails to do that. After another unsuccessful attempt, the man gets upset and depressed. But then he somehow gets a new Galaxy S4 and that’s it – all problems immediately disappear.
