Atif Shamin is a PhD student at Carleton University in Canada. He has invented this ‘transmitter system on-package’ which can extend the battery life of mobile devices. He’s aiming on the connection between the circuit board and the antenna. He’s not using wire for this instead he designed a high frequency micro-transmitter and receiver which is to avoid the usual loss of power pumping bits through a wire. He created a module replacing all the wires connecting a phone’s electrical circuits and antennae, making all of them communicate wirelessly. This device make the efficiency 12 times over which greatly improving the battery life.

Apple banned applications that show nudity, as mentioned previously. So as iBoobs, an sexy iPhone application by Mystic Game Development that shows bouncing boobs when you shake the iPhone. There will be touch screen support and variable breasts sizes and skin tones, adjustable physics settings and more. But Apple has denied iBoobs. Here the rejection letter to Mystic:
“Applications must not contain any Obscene, pornographic, offensive or defamatory content or materials of any kind (text, graphics, images, photographs, etc.), or other content or materials that in Apple’s reasonable judgment may be found objectionable by iPhone or iPod touch users.”
But the latest Mystic update says: We decided to continue development of iBoobs, in the hope that some day Apple or another phone platform will allow it. Let’s try to convince Apple! We need to reach Steve Jobs and all the other employees at Apple somehow ! We’d like to thank everyone for their interest. We will do all we can to get this released!
