Instagram is, in many parts of the world, the most culturally relevant technology since texting. And that has everything to do with its founders — Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger — and their teams, who have meticulously shaped it since creation, executing near-flawlessly with tight control. Walking through the things that make Instagram so special — its network, product, experience and institutional taste — it’s easy to see vulnerability in the wrong hands. Facebook can’t afford to screw this up — especially now, as it increasingly relies on Instagram for growth and for engagement from younger users.
An Australian teenager who hacked Apple Inc. systems over several months and downloaded sensitive data avoided a jail term Thursday, as a court heard he was fascinated by the tech giant and found accessing its networks addictive.
Advances in wearable tech have been pretty impressive lately, but the device described in a new Nature study blows the competition out of the water. While the Apple Watch is now equipped with an FDA-approved EKG sensor and companies like Samsung are going out of their way to make smartwatches look like fashion statements, the device described in the paper, published Wednesday, puts both to shame. This heart-sensing device has no wires, requires no charging, and is so small that it can wrap around a rat’s heart.
Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S10 could deliver significant updates in design and features to the South Korean smartphone manufacturer’s flagship line of premium smartphones.

A slew of new cosmetics and game mechanics just hit Fortnite‘s incredibly popular battle royale game mode. In the spirit of Halloween, both character skins and the game map has taken a creepy turn. But to balance out the darkness, Epic Games threw in some cuteness in the form of pets that players can now carry around on their backs. Here’s everything that’s been added or changed for season 6.
Samsung Galaxy 10 Confirmed To Have In-Display Fingerprint Reader
The New Samsung Galaxy 10 is confirmed to have an in-display fingerprint reader. According to reports, the technology is currently being developed by three separate sensor companies.
More About The Report
The news follows T3’s speculation that the Galaxy S10 would likely feature both an in-display fingerprint reader and Face ID-style 3D sensing technology.
Reports say that the Galaxy S10’s fingerprint reader will be located under a brand new Infinity Display. This increases the size from the 5.77 inches of the Galaxy S9 to 5.8 inches of the Galaxy S10. Most likely because the phone’s bezels will once more be reduced in size.
The new Infinity Display with in-screen finger print reader is reportedly finalized and set to go into production on November 2018. This confirms the previews news story that Samsung will not Debnut the tech in the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 smartphone.
All About This Technology
This technology is currently being developed by three sensor companies: Qualcomm and Synaptics in the US, and Aegis Tech in Taiwan.
The S10’s panel tech also seemingly confirmed that its long-rumored foldable phone will not feature this year. Reports also confirm that Huawei is closest to launching one.
These information leads us to believe that the Samsung Note 9 musty have some other new feature or hardware this year. Samsung seems to be very confident of its capabilities.
An engorged, super-sized battery makes sense. As too does faster hardware and extra HDR display smarts. This would really help the handset push on from last year’s already excellent Galaxy Note 8.
Reports also state that Samsung will improve the 3D sensing camera technology in the next S-series flagship to help improve the performance and security of its face unlock feature.
Although production of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is said to start in November, things can, of course, change from now and then. This would tie with the reports that Samsung will begin production of the foldable screen for its Galaxy X smartphone. While Galaxy S10 will be the 10th anniversary for the Galaxy S-series.
Although there are these leaks and rumors, it should be taken with an open mind. Especially at this early stage. But some details of the Galaxy S!0 have already leaked out. We can expect more leaks and rumors in the coming months.
