German site Apfelpage used a simulator feature on Apple's XCode developer platform to provide us a look at what Apple's iOS 7 will look like on the iPad.
The changes are minor, and it's pretty consistent with what we've already seen from iOS 7. Firstly, we can see the same revamped icon set, new apps, and Control Center that the iPhone has. But the Notification Center gets to a fullscreen size on the iPad. And the Control Center only takes up a tiny bar at the bottom of the screen, while on the iPhone it uses up about half of it.
After four years of research, cork manufacturer Amorim and bottle-making company O-I have now come up with the Helix cork that will change your life forever.
The wine-stopper product makes your bottle resealable, and is aimed at the "popular premium" wine market. Its resealability is a huge advantage in the eyes of consumers, who want to be able to reseal bottles of wine. They much prefer cork to other methods of wine stoppering such as screw tops. O-I Europe president Eric Bouts explains:
Helicopters are usually built for hovering more than speed, but this Eurocopter X3 is built for both. Based on the Eurocopter EC155, the X3 is a hybrid.
In addition to its five blade main and tail rotors, the X3 is outfitted with a pair of stubby wings, similar to those aboard the Mi-24 HIND but with propellers, that provide up to 80 percent of the aircraft's lift. A pair of 2270 HP Rolls-Royce Turbomeca RTM322 turboshaft engines drive all four rotors and allow for a 12,500 foot service ceiling and incredibly fast speed.
Design student Jagjit Chodha created a fruit bowl that alerts users when the fresh produce it holds begins to go bad. The bowl is fitted with a sensor that can detect an increase in ethylene, a compound that is released when fruit matures.
Apple claims it has not been involved in the NSA's PRISM program. The tech giant has released a statement called "Apple's Commitment to Customer Privacy" saying that it does not provide "any government agency" with direct access to its servers, and that "any government agency requesting customer content must get a court order."
Since we've pretty much accomplished doing things on earth, our human appetite to do everything beyond earth is quickly growing.
Lone Signal is a project that will allow people to transmit messages into space. Scientists wouldn't advise getting in touch with extraterrestrial intelligence just in case it comes back to bite us in the ass, but people are anxious to send digital junk into space.
If you were looking for a full breakdown and comparison of the entire MacBook lineup, this guy has done it all for you.

Publisher Simon & Schuster will be releasing the critically acclaimed and bestselling Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson as a paperback on September 10.
Simon & Schuster said the paperback version of Steve Jobs: A Biography will have an afterword that wasn't included in the hardcover when it was published in November 2011 - a month after Jobs' death on Oct. 5, 2011.
Last weekend, Google announced their plans to remove child pornography images from the web by using a new picture-sharing database. The program will allow search engines and other web companies to exchange information about images of children being abused or raped.
In a Samsung commercial aired during game five of the NBA Finals, rapper Jay-Z surprised fans by announcing a new album called Magna Carta Holy Grail. Then he further surprised his fans who use Samsung devices: One million owners of the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note II will get exclusive access to the album first on July 4. And it'll be free, as long as they upload an app associated with the album on June 24.
If you cut off a part of an amphibian, it'll regrow. But humans and mammals can pretty much only grow fingernails, toenails and hair.
Researchers studied mice and using genetic labeling, they found that the base of the mice's nails house self-renewing stem cells. These cells enable our nails to continually grow throughout our lives. The researchers conducted toe-amputation experiments in two groups of mice. They discovered that the pathway is also involved in digit regeneration - which means the normal mice were able to regenerate their toe and toenails five weeks after amputation. But the mice treated with a drug to block a Wnt signaling pathway, and mice whose digits were amputated too far back were unable to regrow anything.
Wearable tech firm Heapsylon created the Sensoria Fitness Socks that can make you a better runner.
These fitness tracker socks have special textile sensors in them that relate information to a Bluetooth-powered anklet you wear, feeding data to your smartphone. The Sensoria app displays an activity tracker to let you know how hard you're exercising.
Tension in Turkey is quickly escalating and thousands of protesters are gearing up for a third week occupying Istanbul's Gezi Park.
Some locals decided to take their little camera-enabled, radio controlled quadcopter for a spin. But police immediately shot it down. Before it was shot down, the civilian drone actually captured some pretty stunning footage.
People were amazed when news emerged about an experimental spray-on liquid fabric that could become wearable clothing.
Fabrican is the company behind this technology developed by clothing-designer turned chemist Dr. Manel Torres, who was originally looking for a quicker way to produce clothes. The idea claimed to the self-proclaimed fashion doctor when he attended a friend's wedding and saw someone getting sprayed by silly string.
Snoozing is a pretty awesome activity especially after stuffing yourself silly with food. And that's exactly what this black hole did.
Nearly 10 years ago, NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory caught signs of a certain black hole snacking on gas at the middle of a nearby galaxy. Recently, NASA's Nuclear SpectroscopicTelescope Array (NuSTAR) took a peek at the same black hole and discovered that it is currently asleep.
While we bid goodbye to Facebook's Sponsored Stories, it's time to say hello to the hashtag tagging that is already being used on other social media brands.
It works the same way as it does elsewhere, so if you click on a #hashtaggedword, a list will pop up directing you to all posts from friends and "liked" pages that use the same, particular hashtag. It hasn't been officially included, but it seems logical that advertisers and sponsored hashtags will soon follow.
Researchers have just found a new human body part. It's inside the eyeball, and it's very tiny. It's 15 microns thick and it's small that calling it a 'body part' feels inappropriate. But it is a new body part, in your eye.
