  • So here's an interesting one:

    iPhones are Allergic to Helium

    Short version: Apple has switched to using MEMS timing oscillators rather than quartz oscillators for the clock. The reasons for the change are accuracy, quartz isn't as accurate at high and low temps, and size. Turns out these devices can be disrupted by small molecule gasses like helium. On the upside if you leave the phone off a charger for a few days to a week it does recover.

      Smartphones with foldable displays are either a waste of time or the next breakthrough in handsets.
      It just depends on whom you ask.

          That’s the thing you’re most excited about with your new phone?!?! How’s the camera? How’s the screen?

          • Sounds like a case of diminishing marginal utility for certain technological advances. As in a each doubling of capability doesn’t create a doubling of appreciation. Maybe cameras and screens are so good now that another doubling of capability yields zero appreciation.
