Apple Wants To Create A Way To Share Files With High Fives

Remember how fun Bump was in the early days of iPhones? Probably not because it was silly and kind of dumb, but based on a new Apple patent application, you could soon be exchanging any kind of data with any type of gesture, from hugs to high fives — and it actually makes sense.


Here's What's Going On Inside A Mermaid's Purse

Reef-dwelling catsharks wrap their fertilised eggs in leathery box-shaped cases commonly called “mermaid’s purses”. The tough, collagenous wall of the purse protects the developing young until it’s ready to hatch — anywhere from a month to a year after it’s laid, depending on its species.


MIT Invented A Way To Automatically Fix Software Bugs With Borrowed Code

A new system from MIT’s CSAIL, or Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, does something incredible to fix buggy software: It borrows healthy code from other applications — and then fixes the bug without ever accessing the original source code.

The ACCC has told Telstra that it should charge its wholesale telco customers almost 10 per cent less for access to the century-old copper network running around the country’s cities and towns.
