We all know Smartphones, SmartTVs and recently Smartwatches.... Now Wilson, a company for sports equipment, announced that its planing on releasing a "Smart Basketball". Partnering up with the Finnish AI firm, SportIQ, Wilson's Smart Basketball will be able to transfer data to your smartphone so you can track your progress on the court.

Metrics on your jump shot, dribbling skills, the amount of baskets you make, where on the court you're shooting best, and the time it takes for you to even take your shot will all be measured with their cyber-ball. Wilson's Smart Basketball will be released by the end of this year, specifically this winter. Watch the Video below!




In the United Kingdom, 16-year-old Ella Birchenough of Dover, Kent, was willing to jump into a storm drain to rescue her Smartphone! Ella was walking down the street talking with a friend while handling her phone. When she tried to put her phone in her pocket. She missed her pocket, dropped her phone, and it skipped into the storm drain at the side of the road.

"I thought to myself, I'm not leaving this," she told reporters. She then proceeded to climb down into the drain feet first in an effort to retrieve the phone with her feet. Her attempt to secure the BlackBerry failed, but then she had a new problem, she could not lift herself out of the drain.



Ella had a good sense of humor over the whole thing, "I wasn't really even stuck, I just need somebody to help lift me out but my mum got all panicky." Taxi operator, Ella's mother, was initially really worried, "I was in a panic...I ran out of the house, turned the corner but as soon as I saw her I burst out laughing."


Kent Fire and Rescue were able to lift Ella safely out of the drain and she was not hurt in the ordeal, but sadly, her BlackBerry did not survive. It was recovered, broken. The good news is that the local morning TV program gave Ella a brand new replacement the next day, an iPhone. As for Ella herself, her mom summed it up nicely, "She is never going to live this down now. We will be bringing it out at her 18th birthday and her wedding."


iPhone 5s vs Galaxy S5


Both Apple and Samsung latest flagship devices pack a Fingerprint Scanner on their home button. Apple introduced fingerprint-scanning technology on the iPhone5S (Touch ID) scanner then Samsung included the same technology on its Galaxy S5 home button.

The iPhone requires you to place your finger on the Touch ID button, while Samsung asks that you swipe your finger, starting above the home button and moving almost directly through the center of it. And while Apple's software suit takes into account unlocking via different angles, Samsung's is sticking to the centered approach.

The Video below compares both device's Unlock Methods.

All current USB cables USB 2.0, microUSB, USB 3.0 etc. They all have the same design but with higher speed and you it's a pain to plug-in a USB cable on your laptop, tablet or phone especially in the dark because they are all irreversible. But now Foxconn shows the first photo rending of a Reversible USB cable to be called USB 3.1 it wouldn't matter which end was plugged into what, or how you flipped it around.




USB 3.1 Type-C will finally break compatibility with the standard USB port design in favor of a much smaller connection interface, and will do away with the microUSB (and miniUSB) standard completely.
