Forskare vid Binghamton State University i New York tror att ditt hjärta kan vara nyckeln till privat information.Genom att mäta den elektriska aktiviteten i hjärtat säger sig forskarlaget kunna kryptera patienters hälsojournaler.Den grundläggande idén är följande: Patienten förses med en kroppsnära enhet, som hela tiden samlar fysiologiska data och skickar den vidare till läkaren.Eftersom EKG-signalerna redan samlas in för kliniska diagnoser skulle systemet helt enkelt kunna återanvända datan under överföringen och därmed sänka kostnaderna och kraven på datorkraft som krävs för att skapa en krypteringsnyckel från grunden."Det finns så många mogna krypteringstekniker tillgängliga, men problemet är att de är dyra och bygger på komplicerade aritmetiska beräkningar och slumpmässigt genererade nycklar", sade Zhanpeng Jin, en av författarna till avhandlingen "A Robust and Reusable ECG-based Authentication and Data Encryption Scheme for eHealth Systems.""Dessa krypteringsmetoder kan inte appliceras direkt på de energihungriga mobila och kroppsnära enheterna - det drar för mycket batteri."

OnePlus managed to land a direct hit to the market with OnePlus 3 T model and in 2016 it was without a discussion one of the most impactful phones released.So it makes sense other manufacturers are using it as a comparison piece, just like the usual Apple or Samsung wonders.And today we have Vernee Apollo pitted against it in a design comparison.Both Vernee Apollo and OnePlus 3T can offer 2.5 display, all metal back cover, nano molding antenna bands, up to 98 % metal coverage for the body, unique matte texture thanks to 360-degree sand-blasting, CNC processes used in the creation and bright edges.Both models have also similar back curves and good handling characteristics.So design-wise they are really fairly similar in many aspects, but the Apollo tends to be relatively a bit more square than the rounded OP3T.Check out the following video to see it captured on film.Vernee Apollo is currently available with up to $50 off on Gearbest here and we can just once again voice the opinion about slighty missed opportunity if the model would appear sooner as originally promised.

Samsung is seriously considering launching a new Galaxy Note phone as usual later this year, despite the fact that the Note 7 became something of a global laughing stock and huge corporate embarrassment due to the small problem of some models catching fire and needing to be sent back to Samsung in little fire-resistant boxes.According to Korean fact outlet Business Korea, Samsung's thinking about doing a Galaxy Note 8 in the second half of the year as has become customary, and might be overcompensating by making it its most technically advanced model yet.The Korean site quotes someone from a Samsung "partner company" on the matter, who told it that: "Samsung will introduce 2K resolution displays in the Galaxy S8, but it will use 4K resolution displays in the Galaxy Note 8 to realize improved virtual reality functions.I heard that it will connect with new Gear VR wearable."So can a 4K mobile display designed for better VR integration repair the massive hole that the Note 7 melted through the Samsung brand?Do the people care enough about VR yet to make it a hardware seller?
