Kwikset Allows Your iPhone to Unlock Your Door

20130513-222222.jpg

The mainstream adoption of the smartphone has generally meant more chance to kill/waste time, be anti-social and in some cases, simplify your life. Kwikset’s Kevo looks to perform the latter with their new integrated lock that enables users to unlock their doors via just a simple tap. There’s no need to swipe your phone over the keyhole but rather the tap instantly pairs and recognizes the authorization between the two. In addition you’re able to send temporary codes to trusted people so you can let them in without the hassle of dropping keys off and meeting up. For now the Kevo is only available for the iPhone 4S and 5. For more information head over to Kwikset.

I wish it wasn’t two days after Christmas, because the Chisel 5 is the iPhone 5 dock I want. Designed by iSkelter, it’s just a slab of beautiful bambo, carved out to perfectly ensconce the iPhone 5 and prop it up in landscape or portrait mode with the Lightning cable snaking through.

New Apple iPhone 5

I LOVE IT….do you?

As the anticipation was building today leading up to Apple’s WWDC, the much talked-about iPhone 5 has officially been unveiled. The iPhone 4/4S successor is expectedly impressive with an all glass and aluminum body and structure. Living up to much of the rumors and early grapevine conversations, the iPhone 5 arrives with some subtle and other substantial changes.

Body:

Touted by Apple as the world’s “thinnest smartphone,” the phone weighs in at 112 grams and is 7.6mm thick and 18% thinner than before. Taller than the previous generation phones, the iPhone 5 boasts a 326ppi Retina display with a four inch screen at 1136 x 640 resolution. The screen is the same width as previous models yet slightly taller. Offered in two colors, white or black, the white body style will feature an aluminum backing while the black iteration will feature a black anodized backing.

The increased screen size also bumps up your springboard space bringing about five rows of icons in addition to the shortcut bottom row. All of the Apple first party Apps have been updated to be optimized for the new screen including the iWork suite as well as iMovie and GarageBand.

A6 Processor:

Numerically, the iPhone 5 takes it to the next step and includes a powerful A6 Processor inside which is expected to bring 2x CPU processing as well as 2x graphics performance while still consuming less energy. The A6 processor is 22% smaller than the previously installed A5 processor.

Network:

The iPhone 5 will run on LTE — meaning the phone will operate on the fastest cellular data network around. For U.S. cell phone providers, you can expect Sprint, AT&T and Verizon to run the iPhone 5 on LTE initially.

Battery Life:

Apple has improved the battery life of the new iPhone with an expected talk time and browsing time of eight hours on 3G or LTE while WiFi will run you about 10-hours talk time/browsing.

iSight/Video:

The phone’s camera has been slightly downsized (approximately 25% thinner), although it features the same iPhone 4S, 8-megapixel camera at an f/2.4 aperture. It also features a dynamic low light mode intended to improve image quality within low light conditions. Video has been improved to film at 1080p with face detection, improved image stabilization and the user can also take photos while filming video. The front facing camera will film at an improved 720p, for HD FaceTime and will also include backside illumination.

New “Lightning” Dock Connector:

Perhaps one of the most notable changes of the iPhone 5 is the creation of a new connector which is being called, “Lightning.” Doing away with the old iPod connector, Lightning is 80% smaller than the previous connector and is reversible creating a more user friendly, ease-of-use.

New Apple iPhone 5 Concept

20120622-175138.jpg

When I first spotted those leaked images of what was claimed to be the next-generation iPhone’s rear panel, I wasn’t keen on the two-tone aluminum look, and I found myself wondering what Jony Ive was up to inside Apple’s design labs. But now that I’ve seen a few mockups of that design, I’ve changed my mind, and come October I would love this to be at the end of those long queues at Apple. In fact, the latest mockups, created by Martin Hajek, look absolutely incredible.
